    • Aerial social force model: a new framework to accompany people using autonomous flying robots 

      Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Garza Elizondo, Luís Alberto; Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Herrero Cotarelo, Fernando; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We proposed a novel Aerial Social Force Model (ASFM) that allows autonomous flying robots to accompany humans in urban environments in a safe and comfortable manner. To date, we are not aware of other state-of-the-art ...
    • 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. ...
    • Detección automática de personas mediante láser 2D y su aplicación a la robótica de servicios 

      Herrero Cotarelo, Fernando (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-05)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      En el marco del proyecto europeo URUS (Ubiquitous Networking Robotics in Urban Settings [10][1]) el IRI (Institut de Robótica i Informática Industrial [11]) trabaja con plataformas robóticas móviles que cooperan con ...
    • 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 ...
    • Multimodal feedback fusion of laser, image and temporal information 

      Huerta Casado, Iván; Ferrer Mínguez, Gonzalo; Herrero Cotarelo, Fernando; Prati, Andrea; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      In the present paper, we propose a highly accurate and robust people detector, which works well under highly variant and uncertain conditions, such as occlusions, false positives and false detections. These adverse conditions, ...
    • Planar PØP: feature-less pose estimation with applications in UAV localization 

      Amor Martínez, Adrián; Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Herrero Cotarelo, Fernando; Ruiz, Alberto; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We present a featureless pose estimation method that, in contrast to current Perspective-n-Point (PnP) approaches, it does not require n point correspondences to obtain the camera pose, allowing for pose estimation from ...
    • Robot social-aware navigation framework to accompany people walking side-by-side 

      Ferrer, Gonzalo; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Herrero Cotarelo, Fernando; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2017-04-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      We present a novel robot social-aware navigation framework to walk side-by-side with people in crowded urban areas in a safety and natural way. The new system includes the following key issues: to propose a new robot ...
