    Article
    Open Access
    Detection, segmentation and tracking of fruits and vegetables are three fundamental tasks for precision agriculture, enabling robotic harvesting and yield estimation applications. However, modern algorithms are data hungry ...
  • Perception–intention–action cycle in human–robot collaborative tasks: the collaborative lightweight object transportation use-case 

    Domínguez Vidal, José Enrique; Rodríguez Linares, Nicolás Adrián; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2024-03-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    This study proposes to improve the reliability, robustness and human-like nature of Human–Robot Collaboration (HRC). For that, the classical Perception–Action cycle is extended to a Perception–Intention–Action (PIA) cycle, ...

    Article
    Open Access
    The use of autonomous technologies for last-mile logistics has the potential to reduce operation costs, cut emissions from the delivery sector, improve safety levels in communities, and provide efficient delivery solutions ...
  • Adaptive social planner to accompany people in real-life dynamic environments 

    Repiso Polo, Ely; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2022-12-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robots must develop the ability to socially navigate in uncontrolled urban environments to be able to be included in our daily lives. This paper presents a new robot navigation framework called the adaptive social planner ...

    Coll Ribes, Gabriel; Torres Rodriguez, Ivan Jesús; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Elsevier, 2023-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Precision agriculture is a growing field in the agricultural industry and it holds great potential in fruit and vegetable harvesting. In this work, we present a robust accurate method for the detection and localization of ...
  • Shared task representation for human–robot collaborative navigation: the collaborative search case 

    Dalmasso Blanch, Marc; Domínguez Vidal, José Enrique; Torres Rodriguez, Ivan Jesús; Jiménez Schlegl, Pablo; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2023-10-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    Recent research in Human Robot Collaboration (HRC) has spread and specialised in many sub-fields. Many show considerable advances, but the human–robot collaborative navigation (HRCN) field seems to be stuck focusing on ...
  • LEPF-Net: light enhancement pixel fusion network for underwater image enhancement 

    Yan, Jiaquan; Wang, Yijian; Fan, Haoyi; Huang, Jiayan; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Wang, Chuansheng (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2023-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Underwater images often suffer from degradation due to scattering and absorption. With the development of artificial intelligence, fully supervised learning-based models have been widely adopted to solve this problem. ...
  • All-in-one aerial image enhancement network for forest scenes 

    Chen, Zhaoqi; Wang, Chuansheng; Zhang, Fuquan; Zhang, Ling; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo (Frontiers Media SA, 2023-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Drone monitoring plays an irreplaceable and significant role in forest firefighting due to its characteristics of wide-range observation and real-time messaging. However, aerial images are often susceptible to different ...
  • Semi-supervised wildfire smoke detection based on smoke-aware consistency 

    Wang, Chuansheng; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Shen, Zhiguo; Hu, Jinxing; Fan, Haoyi (Frontiers Media SA, 2022-11-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    The semi-transparency property of smoke integrates it highly with the background contextual information in the image, which results in great visual differences in different areas. In addition, the limited annotation of ...
  • A hierarchical framework for collaborative artificial intelligence 

    Crowley, James L; Coutaz, Joëlle; Grosinger, Jasmin; Vázquez Salceda, Javier; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Iocchi, Luca; Cohn, Anthony G. (2023-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We propose a hierarchical framework for collaborative intelligent systems. This framework organizes research challenges based on the nature of the collaborative activity and the information that must be shared, with each ...
