    • Comparing two LEGO Robotics-Based Interventions for Social Skills Training with Children with ASD 

      Albo-Canals, J.; Díaz Boladeras, Marta; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio (2013)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This paper presents an analysis of two comparable studies with LEGO Robotics-based activities in a social skills training program for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). One study has been carried out with a ...
    • Design and implementation of a modular body for an underwater robot 

      Font Calafell, Davinia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Eidegenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich, 2009)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - author's decision
      In the context of underwater robotics, most vehicles currently deployed use a propulsion system based on propellers. Propellers are very efficient but they tend to be noisy and fragile, in particular, in cluttered ...
    • Development of a 2DOF robotic device for hand rehabilitation 

      Font, Francisco José (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Eidegenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich, 2011)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      Most of the stroke survivors lose hand and arm skill which can be partially recovered through intensive rehabilitation. Studies show that robot-assisted rehabilitation is e ective, providing a more motivating environment ...
    • Distributed locomotion strategies for lattice-based modular robots 

      Otero Avalle, Daniel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06-22)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Previous work on locomotion strategies for lattice-based modular robots has provided several algorithms that allow modular robots move over sets of specific obstacles. Nevertheless, there was not yet a general algorithm that ...
    • Experimental platform for a robotic hand-arm system 

      Fortín Villegas, Jose Antonio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-06)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Software development in robotics is a complex task due to the existing heterogeneity in terms of hardware, communications and programming languages that are used in modern robotic systems. The lack of standardization in ...
    • Graphical user interface for the URUS project 

      Trulls Fortuny, Eduard (2008)
      External research report
      Open Access
      The aim of this report is twofold. First, to present the Graphical User Interface (GUI) developed at IRI for monitoring robotic experiments in the context of the EU project URUS, its capabilities and intended use, and its ...
    • High torque, high impact braking system by using Hot Melt Adhesive (HMA) 

      Fernandez Bocanegra, Juan José (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Eidegenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich, 2011)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      When designing a new legged robot it is important to think about what the robot has to do. It is not the same a non-stop walking robot than a legged robot which has to be at the same position much longer than moving. For ...
    • Solidworks parameterization for industrial robot design 

      Saiz Sau, Marc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Linköping Universitet, 2009)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Development of Industrial robots is becoming more expensive and time consuming over the years. A lot of costs are spent in the development, and so it is necessary to improve the conceptual design phase. This thesis is ...
