    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:   Aristeril
    Modern factories are incorporating robotics and automatics in their processes. From robotic arms to Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs), the goal of these machines is helping humans to do the hardest or more repetitive tasks, ...
  • Simultaneous AUV navigation and tracking with satellite ASVs 

    Real Vial, Marta; real vial (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2022-05-23)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The navigation of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) presents a series of challenges, being the location due to the inaccessibility of GPS signal one of them. A solution is the use of several surface vehicles equipped ...
  • Perception and reasoning for the automatic configuration of task and motion planning problems 

    Arabaci, Fatma Nur (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-10-11)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    This thesis proposes a framework for configuring Task Planning Problems flexibly in an automatic manner using two main modules which are the Perception Module and the Reasoning Module. In order to automatize the overall ...
  • Trajectory estimation and prediction in a convoy of vehicles 

    Gerin, Raphaël (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-07-12)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Covenantee:   Expleo Group
    The last-mile delivery problem is increasingly a challenge to local authorities and government actors. 25% of the road congestion is due to delivery vehicles which also generate air and noise pollution. This is a waste of ...
  • Loop Closure using laser 2D 

    Pujol Badell, Sergi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-10-22)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    A fundamental necessity in mobile robotics is the ability of knowing the robot own location. In many applications, a map of the environment is not available or it does not have the accuracy or the information necessary for ...
  • Exploration and search in unknown open environments with a mobile robot 

    Miranda Moreno, Antonio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-10-11)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    An a priori map is often unavailable for a mobile robot in an unknown environment. In large spaces, relying on a tele-operated guidance to create a map of the environment will result in a huge and inefficient workload. ...
  • Study for the localization of vehicles using a drone with stereoscopic vision 

    Prieto Molina, Sergio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-10-21)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Nowadays, drones use sensors such as GPS, gyroscopes, and accelerometers to obtain the position and use it to coordinate different autonomous vehicles. However, many times these sensors fail or obtain information affected ...
  • Implementation of a low-cost robot using ROS 

    Teruel Saldaña, Lucía (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-10-11)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Having access to real robotics hardware, for students, is not always easy. One solution is the purchase of low-cost robots, but these are not always genuinely affordable and sometimes are too simple. Another solution is ...
  • Small scale robot for autonomous tracking of magnetic field sources. 

    El Baghdadi Ourag, Fatima (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-09-21)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Aquest document presenta un mil·lirobot autònom que persegueix un camp magnètic. El robot és senzill i petit de 57 mm per 49 mm per 18,5 mm i és capaç de rastrejar el camp magnètic. Es presenta i s’explica com s’ha dissenyat ...
  • Point cloud processing and computer vision for object detection in dense environments 

    Pérez Ruiz, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-21)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    This work presents a dual approach to object recognition: 2D computer vision on images on the one hand, and 3D point cloud processing on the other. The recognition of objects has been applied to a synthetic “supermarket” ...
  • Upper limb teleoperated control interface for powered wheelchair users 

    Gil Delgado, Carlos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-21)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:   Duchenne Parent Project España / Centre de Recerca en Enginyeria Biomedica (CREB)
    Muscular Dystrophies refers to a group of genetic diseases which cause progressive weakness and degeneration of muscles used during voluntary movement. Many affected people use powered wheelchairs, increasing the muscle ...
  • Evolution of behaviour trees for collective transport with robot swarms 

    Legarda Herranz, Guillermo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-21)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Swarm robotics, inspired by natural swarms, studies how simple robots with only local sensing capabilities and no centralised control may cooperate to achieve a common goal in a robust, flexible and scalable way. A robotic ...
