    • A real-time human-robot interaction system based on gestures for assistive scenarios 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Escalera, Sergio; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio (2016)
      Article
      Open Access
      Natural and intuitive human interaction with robotic systems is a key point to develop robots assisting people in an easy and effective way. In this paper, a Human Robot Interaction (HRI) system able to recognize gestures ...
    • A taxonomy of preferences for physically assistive robots 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (IEEE Press, 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Assistive devices and technologies are getting common and some commercial products are starting to be available. However, the deployment of robots able to physically interact with a person in an assistive manner is still ...
    • Adapting robot behavior to user preferences in assistive scenarios 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard (2020-03-09)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Robotic assistants have inspired numerous books and science fiction movies. In the real world, these kinds of devices are a growing need in amongst the elderly, who while life continue requiring more assistance. While ...
    • Adapting robot task planning to user preferences: an assistive shoe dressing example 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2019-08-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Healthcare robots will be the next big advance in humans’ domestic welfare, with robots able to assist elderly people and users with disabilities. However, each user has his/her own preferences, needs and abilities. ...
    • Comportament de cerca d'objectes en una sala per a un robot de servei 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-06-20)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      [CATALÀ] En aquest Treball Final Grau s'implementa un comportament per a un robot de servei per fer que aquest sigui capaç de cercar i trobar objectes en una sala de la qual en coneix el mapa. La resolució del problema ...
    • Human multi-robot interaction based on gesture recognition 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-02-06)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      This Master Thesis is devoted to the development of a gestural interface to interact with two robots, a NAO and a Wifibot, in a similar way as humans do. A Kinect 2 sensor is used to recognize the two gestures that have ...
    • Joining high-level symbolic planning with low-level motion primitives in adaptive HRI: application to dressing assistance 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Pignat, Emmanuel; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Calinon, Sylvain; Torras, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      For a safe and successful daily living assistance, far from the highly controlled environment of a factory, robots should be able to adapt to ever-changing situations. Programming such a robot is a tedious process that ...
    • Personalization framework for adaptive robotic feeding assistance 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2016)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The deployment of robots at home must involve robots with pre-defined skills and the capability of personalizing their behavior by non-expert users. A framework to tackle this personalization is presented and applied to ...
    • Probabilistic planning for robotics with ROSPlan 

      Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Cashmmore, Michael; Krivic, Senka; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Magazzeni, Daniele; Torras, Carme (2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Probabilistic planning is very useful for handling uncertainty in planning tasks to be carried out by robots. ROSPlan is a framework for task planning in the Robot Operating System (ROS), but until now it has not been ...
    • Towards safety in physically assistive robots: eating assistance 

      Vila Abad, Maria; Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem (2018)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Safety is one of the base elements to build trust in robots. This paper studies remedies to unavoidable collisions using robotics assistive feeding as an example task. Firstly, we propose an attention mechanism so the user ...
