    • Autonomous navigation framework for a car-like robot 

      Hernández Juan, Sergi; Herrero Cotarelo, Fernando (2015)
      External research report
      Open Access
      This technical report describes the work done to develop a new navigation scheme for an autonomous car-like robot available at the Mobile Robotics Laboratory at IRI. To plan the general path the robot should follow (i.e. ...
    • Dynamic equations of motion for a 3-bar tensegrity based mobile robot 

      Mirats Tur, Josep Maria; Hernández Juan, Sergi; Graells Rovira, Albert (2007)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Tensegrity structures can give a new approach to the construction of mobile robots with different shapes and properties that usual robots, wheeled or legged, do not have. Tensegrity are light, deformable structures that ...
    • Humanoid robotics and human-centered initiatives at IRI 

      Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Hernández Juan, Sergi; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Torras, Carme (Secretariado de Publicaciones e Intercambio científico. Universidad de Valladolid, 2009-09)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      The interest of the robotics community on humanoid robots is growing, specially in perception, scene understanding and manipulation in humancentered environments, as well as in human-robot interaction. Moreover, humanoid ...

    • Multi-master ROS systems 

      Hernández Juan, Sergi; Herrero Cotarelo, Fernando (2015)
      External research report
      Open Access
      This technical report introduces the concepts, problems and a possible solution for ROS multi-master systems, that is, systems build from two or more ROS networks, each with its own roscore node. In general this environment ...
    • Path planning for active tensegrity structures 

      Porta Pleite, Josep Maria; Hernández Juan, Sergi (2016-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper presents a path planning method for actuated tensegrity structures with quasi-static motion. The valid configurations for such structures lay on an equilibrium manifold, which is implicitly defined by a set of ...
    • Staübli work-cell: embedded controller 

      Hernández Juan, Sergi (2015)
      External research report
      Open Access
      This technical report describes the design (both hardware and software) of an embedded controller for the Staüli work-cell available at the perception and manipulation laboratory at IRI. This system is based on a commercial ...
    • Staübli work-cell: general description and operation 

      Hernández Juan, Sergi; Gabás Nova, Antonio (2015)
      External research report
      Open Access
      This technical report provides all the information necessary to operate all the elements that integrate the Staübli work-cell at the perception and manipulation laboratory at IRI. A detailed description of each of the ...
    • Tensegrity frameworks: dynamic analysis review and open problems
