Recerca bàsica i aplicada al desenvolupament de sistemes intel•ligents capaços d'interactuar amb el món de forma autònoma i ubica. Aquests sistemes hauran de percebre, raonar, planificar, actuar i aprendre de l'experiència prèvia. El grup treballa activament en tres àrees: robòtica social i aèria ; visió per computador i reconeixement estructural de patrons. Dins de la robòtica social s’està treballant en els següents temes: Interacció robot-humà; localització i navegació social i autònoma de robots; localització i construcció simultània de mapes (SLAM); robòtica ubiqua; robòtica mòbil cooperativa; i robòtica aèria. En visió per computador es treballa en: seguiment, identificació i reconeixement de objectes; en xarxes de sensors de càmeres; fusió de dades; i percepció cooperativa. I en reconeixement estructural de patrons s'està treballant en mètodes de síntesi i coincidència de grafs i el la seva aplicació a la robòtica.

The Artificial Vision and Intelligent Systems Group (VIS) carries out basic and applied research with the aim of understanding and designing intelligent systems that are capable of interacting with the real world in an autonomous and wide-reaching manner. Such intelligent systems must perceive, reason, plan, act and learn from previous experiences. The group works on the following topics: robust colour image segmentation and labelling, pattern recognition, viewpoint invariant object learning and recognition, object tracking, face tracking, biometrics, processing and analysis of medical images for diagnosis, document analysis, mobile robot navigation, simultaneous localisation and map building, visual servoing, and human-computer interaction. The possible areas of application of the VIS?s research include the automotive and transport industry, the biomedical imaging industry, the space industry, robotics applications, security, home and office automation, the entertainment industry, and future computing enviro

    Conference report
    Open Access
    Most of the published works concerning action recognition, usually assume that the action sequences have been previously segmented in time, that is, the action to be recognized starts with the first sequence frame and ends ...
  • Computerized control strategy to prevent waste-water plants pollution 

    Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Martínez García, Herminio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Pollution in coastal areas is very hazardous for population. The problem is even higher when this pollution occurs in bathing areas such as beaches in populated areas. In this work we present a new automatic control ...

  • Factor descent optimization for sparsification in graph SLAM 

    Vallvé Navarro, Joan; Solà Ortega, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (IEEE Press, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the context of graph-based simultaneous localization and mapping, node pruning consists in removing a subset of nodes from the graph, while keeping the graph’s information content as close as possible to the original. ...
  • Joint coarse-and-fine reasoning for deep optical flow 

    Vaquero Gómez, Víctor; Ros, German; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; López, Antonio Manuel; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We propose a novel representation for dense pixel-wise estimation tasks using CNNs that boosts accuracy and reduces training time, by explicitly exploiting joint coarse-and-fine reasoning. The coarse reasoning is performed ...
