  • Random clustering ferns for multimodal object recognition 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2017-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We propose an efficient and robust method for the recognition of objects exhibiting multiple intra-class modes, where each one is associated with a particular object appearance. The proposed method, called random clustering ...
  • Robot approaching and engaging people in a human-robot companion framework 

    Repiso Polo, Ely; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a new model to make robots capable of approaching and engaging people with a human-like behavior, while they are walking in a side-by-side formation with a person. This method extends our previous work ...
  • Robot companion: a social-force based approach with human awareness-navigation in crowded environments 

    Ferrer Mínguez, Gonzalo; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Robots accompanying humans is one of the core capacities every service robot deployed in urban settings should have. We present a novel robot companion approach based on the so-called Social Force Model (SFM). A new model ...
  • Robot companions for guiding people in urban areas 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Corominas Murtra, Andreu; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Escuela Superior de Ingenieros de la Universidad de Sevilla, 2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we explain some developments on robot guidance of people and how we manage the robust navigation in urban areas. This work is part of the research of ongoing EU and national research projects (URUS, ...

  • 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 ...
  • Searching and tracking people in urban environments with static and dynamic obstacles 

    Goldhoorn, Alex; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Alquézar Mancho, René; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2017-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Searching and tracking people in crowded urban areas where they can be occluded by static or dynamic obstacles is an important behavior for social robots which assist humans in urban outdoor environments. In this work, we ...
  • Searching and tracking people with cooperative mobile robots 

    Goldhoorn, Alex; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Alquézar Mancho, René; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Social robots should be able to search and track people in order to help them. In this paper we present two different techniques for coordinated multi-robot teams for searching and tracking people. A probability map (belief) ...
  • Social-aware robot navigation in urban environments 

    Ferrer Mínguez, Gonzalo; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we present a novel robot navigation approach based on the so-called Social Force Model (SFM). First, we construct a graph map with a set of destinations that completely describe the navigation environment. ...
  • Teaching a drone to accompany a person from demonstrations using non-linear ASFM 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Coll Gomilla, Carles; Alquézar Mancho, René; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, we present a new method based on the Aerial Social Force Model (ASFM) to allow human-drone side-by-side social navigation in real environments. To tackle this problem, the present work proposes a new ...
