  • Odometry estimation for aerial manipulation 

    Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Solà Ortega, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Springer, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This chapter explains a fast and low-cost state localization estimation method for small-sized UAVs, that uses an IMU, a smart camera and an infrared time-of-flight range sensor that act as an odometer providing absolute ...
  • Perception for detection and grasping 

    Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Pumarola Peris, Albert; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This research presents a methodology for the detection of the crawler used in the project AEROARMS. The approach consisted on using a two-step progressive strategy, going from rough detection and tracking, for approximation ...
  • 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 ...
  • Visual servoing of aerial manipulators 

    Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Lippiello, Vincenzo (Springer, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This chapter describes the classical techniques to control an aerial manipulator by means of visual information and presents an uncalibrated image-based visual servo method to drive the aerial vehicle. The proposed technique ...
  • Robust perception for aerial inspection: Adaptive and on-line techniques 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This chapter explains an adaptive on-line object detection and classification technique for robust perception due to varying scene conditions, for example partial cast shadows, change on the illumination conditions or ...

  • Design and development of aerial robotic systems for sampling operations in industrial environment 

    Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Urzua, Sarquis; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Grau Saldes, Antoni (InTech, 2017-09-06)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This chapter describes the development of an autonomous fluid sampling system for outdoor facilities, and the localization solution to be used. The automated sampling system will be based on collaborative robotics, with a ...
  • Dense segmentation-aware descriptors 

    Trulls Fortuny, Eduard; Kokkinos, Iasonas; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Springer, 2016)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Dense descriptors are becoming increasingly popular in a host of tasks, such as dense image correspondence, bag-of-words image classification, and label transfer. However, the extraction of descriptors on generic image ...
