  • Configuration space of a textile rectangle 

    Strazzeri, Fabio; Torras, Carme (Springer-Birkhäuser, 2021)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Given a rectangular piece of cloth on a planar surface, we aim to characterise its states based on the robot manipulations they would require. Considering the cloth as a set of n points in R2, we study its configuration ...
  • Fault-tolerant control of a service robot 

    San Miguel Tello, Alberto; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem (2020-08-02)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    In this chapter, the problem of fault -tolerant control of a service robot is addressed. The proposed approach is based on using a fault estimation scheme based on a robust unknown -input observer (RUI0) that allows one ...
  • Precise localization for aerial inspection using augmented reality markers 

    Amor Martínez, Adrián; Ruiz García, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This chapter is devoted to explaining a method for precise localization using augmented reality markers. This method can achieve precision of less of 5 mm in position at a distance of 0.7 m, using a visual mark of 17 mm × ...
  • Relative localization for aerial manipulation with PL-SLAM 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Vakhitov, A.; Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This chapter explains a precise SLAM technique, PL-SLAM, that allows to simultaneously process points and lines and tackle situations where point-only based methods are prone to fail, like poorly textured scenes or motion ...
  • Robotics and artificial intelligence meet the humanities: some initiatives for ethics education and dissemination 

    Torras, Carme (Global University Network for Innovation, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The influence of the humanities on the study of a technological subject like robotics needs to rapidly grow, for the simple reason that robotics is becoming a part of humanity: assisting, interacting, and enabling people ...
