The Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial was created in November 1995 as a Joint Research Institute of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).

The Institute was created with three main objectives: a) to promote a multidisciplinary center where CSIC and UPC researchers from different fields can combine efforts to carry out research on robotics and applied informatics; b) to offer to the community an Institute for fundamental and pre‐industrial technological research, offering also scientific education through doctorate and postgraduate courses; and c) to promote a quality‐based center being competitive enough to join other partners to participate in local, national and European research programs.

    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper proposes a distributed model predictive control strategy for a HVAC system that relies on its decomposition into subsystems based on the sensitivity analysis. An economic model predictive controller is implemented ...
  • GANimation: anatomically-aware facial animation from a single image 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Martinez, Aleix M.; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Springer, 2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Recent advances in Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) have shown impressive results for task of facial expression synthesis. The most successful architecture is StarGAN, that conditions GANs' generation process with ...
  • Joining high-level symbolic planning with low-level motion primitives in adaptive HRI: application to dressing assistance 

    Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Pignat, Emmanuel; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Calinon, Sylvain; Torras, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    For a safe and successful daily living assistance, far from the highly controlled environment of a factory, robots should be able to adapt to ever-changing situations. Programming such a robot is a tedious process that ...
  • Deep lidar CNN to understand the dynamics of moving vehicles 

    Vaquero Gómez, Víctor; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Perception technologies in Autonomous Driving are experiencing their golden age due to the advances in Deep Learning. Yet, most of these systems rely on the semantically rich information of RGB images. Deep Learning solutions ...
  • Randomized planning of dynamic motions avoiding forward singularities 

    Bordalba Llaberia, Ricard; Ros Giralt, Lluís; Porta Pleite, Josep Maria (Springer International Publishing, 2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Forward singularities, also known as direct, or actuator singularities, cause many problems to the planning and control of robot motions. They yield position errors and rigidity losses of the robot, and generate unbounded ...
  • Randomized kinodynamic planning for constrained systems 

    Bordalba Llaberia, Ricard; Ros Giralt, Lluís; Porta Pleite, Josep Maria (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Kinodynamic RRT planners are considered to be general tools for effectively finding feasible trajectories for high-dimensional dynamical systems. However, they struggle when holonomic constraints are present in the system, ...
  • Dimensionality reduction in learning Gaussian mixture models of movement primitives for contextualized action selection and adaptation 

    Colomé Figueras, Adrià; Torras, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Robotic manipulation often requires adaptation to changing environments. Such changes can be represented by a certain number of contextual variables that may be observed or sensed in different manners. When learning and ...
  • Accurate computation of quaternions from rotation matrices 

    Sarabandi, Soheil; Thomas, Federico (Springer International Publishing, 2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The main non-singular alternative to 3×3 proper orthogonal matrices, for representing rotations in R3, is quaternions. Thus, it is important to have reliable methods to pass from one representation to the other. While ...
  • Deformable motion 3D reconstruction by union of regularized subspaces 

    Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper presents an approach to jointly retrieve camera pose, time-varying 3D shape, and automatic clustering based on motion primitives, from incomplete 2D trajectories in a monocular video. We introduce the concept ...
  • A reconfigurable asymmetric 3-UPU parallel robot

    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Parallel robots with three UPU legs have received a lot of attention due to the possibility of assembling these legs so that the robot performs either a pure translational or a pure rotational motion. Nevertheless, some ...
  • "Elbows out": predictive tracking of partially occluded pose for robot-assisted dressing 

    Chance, Greg; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Caleb-Solly, Praminda; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme; Dogramadzi, Sanja (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
