    Article
    Open Access
    We present an efficient,online,and interactive approach for computing a classifier, called Wild Lady Ferns (WiLFs), for face learning and detection using small human supervision. More precisely, on the one hand, WiLFs ...
  • Timed-elastic bands for manipulation motion planning 

    Magyar, Bence; Tsiogkas, Nikolaos; Deray, Jeremie; Pfeiffer, Sammy; Lane, David (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-10-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Motion planning is one of the main problems studied in the field of robotics. However, it is still challenging for the state-of-the-art methods to handle multiple conditions that allow better paths to be found. For example, ...
  • Pose-graph SLAM sparsification using factor descent 

    Vallvé Navarro, Joan; Solà Ortega, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (2019-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Since state of the art simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithms are not constant time, it is often necessary to reduce the problem size while keeping as much of the original graph’s information content. In ...
  • Anticipative kinodynamic planning: multi-objective robot navigation in urban and dynamic environments 

    Ferrer, Gonzalo; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2018-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents the anticipative kinodynamic planning (AKP) approach for robot navigation in urban environments, while satisfying both dynamic and nonholonomic constraints. Our main motivation is to minimize the impact ...
  • EKF-based parameter identification of multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehiclesmodels

    Ollero Baturone, Aníbal; Heredia Benot, Guillermo; Franchi, Antonio; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2018-08-13)
    Article
    Open Access
    This article summarizes new aerial robotic manipulation technologies and methods-aerial robotic manipulators with dual arms and multidirectional thrusters-developed in the AEROARMS project for outdoor industrial inspection ...
  • Robust and real-time detection and tracking of moving objects with minimum 2d LiDAR information to advance autonomous cargo handling in ports 

    Vaquero Gómez, Víctor; Repiso Polo, Ely; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018-12-29)
    Article
    Open Access
    Detecting and tracking moving objects (DATMO) is an essential component for autonomous driving and transportation. In this paper, we present a computationally low-cost and robust DATMO system which uses as input only 2D ...
  • Anticipatory kinodynamic motion planner for computing the best path and velocity trajectory in autonomous driving 

    Pérez Talamino, Jordi; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2019-04-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents an approach, using an anticipatory kinodynamic motion planner, for obtaining the best trajectory and velocity profile for autonomous driving in dynamic complex environments, such as driving in urban ...

  • Quadrotor multi-model for control purposes 

    Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work, a multi-model of a quadrotor is developed in order to control this system. The kinematic model of each part of the quadrotor will be derived using the Euler angles, and also the dynamics model of the quadrotor ...
