    • 6-D manipulation with aerial towed-cable system 

      Manubens Ferriol, Montserrat; Devaurs, Didier; Cortés, Juan; Ros Giralt, Lluís (2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We propose a new approach for the reliable 6-dimensional quasi-static manipulation of an aerial towed-cable system. The novelty of this approach lies in the combination of results deriving from the static analysis of ...
    • A motion planning approach to 6-D manipulation with aerial towed-cable systems 

      Manubens Ferriol, Montserrat; Devaurs, Didier; Ros Giralt, Lluís; Cortés, Juan (2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access

    • A space decomposition method for path planning of loop linkages 

      Porta Pleite, Josep Maria; Cortés, Juan; Ros Giralt, Lluís; Thomas, Federico (2007)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      This paper introduces box approximations as a new tool for path planning of closed-loop linkages. Box approximations are finite collections of rectangloids that tightly envelop the robot's free space at a desired resolution. ...
    • Motion planning for 6D manipulation with aerial towed-cable systems 

      Manubens Ferriol, Montserrat; Devaurs, Didier; Ros Giralt, Lluís; Cortés, Juan (2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Performing aerial 6-dimensional manipulation using flying robots is a challenging problem, to which only little work has been devoted. This paper proposes a motion planning approach for the reliable 6-dimensional quasi-static ...
    • Randomized tree construction algorithm to explore energy landscapes 

      Jaillet, Leonard Georges; Corcho Sánchez, Francisco José; Pérez González, Juan Jesús; Cortés, Juan (2011-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      We report in the present work a new method for exploring conformational energy landscapes. The method, called T-RRT, combines ideas from statistical physics and robot path planning algorithms. A search tree is constructed ...
    • Relaxation of amorphous multichain polymer systems using inverse kinematics 

      Cortés, Juan; Carrión Fajardo, Sergio; Curcó, David; Renaud, M; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (Elsevier, 2010-08-04)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Atomic scale simulations of polymer materials is a topic of interest since it permits to reduce costly experiments to determine their physicochemical properties. In this context, modeling heterogeneously ordered multichain ...
    • Rigid-CLL: avoiding constant-distance computations in cell linked-lists algorithms 

      Ruiz de Angulo García, Vicente; Cortés, Juan; Porta Pleite, Josep Maria (2012-01-30)
      Article
      Open Access
      Many of the existing molecular simulation tools require the efficient identification of the set of nonbonded interacting atoms. This is necessary, for instance, to compute the energy values or the steric contacts between ...
    • Sampling-based path planning on configuration-space costmaps 

      Jaillet, Leonard Georges; Cortés, Juan; Simeon, Thierry (2010)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper addresses path planning to consider a cost function defined over the configuration space. The proposed planner computes low-cost paths that follow valleys and saddle points of the configuration-space costmap. ...
    • Several stories about tripeptides: basic components for modeling flexible protein structures 

      Cortés, Juan (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2020)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      From a mechanical point of view, fragments of three consecutive amino acid residues (called tripeptides hereafter) are very interesting elements of polypeptide chains. Indeed, if we consider the bond torsion angles as ...
