Design and control of a biped robot using passive control techniques
Start year: 2006 - End year: 2008
Funder: CICYT

The objective of this project is the development a natural size biped robot as light as possible and with a few number of degrees of freedom. Existing humanoid robots have a high number of degrees of freedom that in most...

Satellite recovery by robotic systems using computer vision
Start year: 2005 - End year: 2008
Funder: CDTI

The aim of this Project is to develop strategies and techniques that can used for the capture of satellites by robotics manipulators using computer vision. The results are directly applicable to robot visual servoing in...

Open building manufacturing
Start year: 2005 - End year: 2008
Funder: EU 6th Framework Programme

The industry driven goal of the ManuBuild project (6FP EU IP project under NMP priority) is to create a new paradigm for building production by combining efficient manufacturing in factories & construction sites, and...

Peer to Peer Robot-Human Interaction
Start year: 2005 - End year: 2008
Funder: CICYT

The goal of this project is to develop personal social robots with a high degree of autonomy. The robot?s behaviour will be based on their own impulses and motivations.

Development of the humanoid robot for cooperative tasks with humans
Start year: 2005 - End year: 2007
Funder: CICYT

Rh-1 project has two main objectives: 1) the mechanical redesign of the humanoid robot Rh-0, developed in the previous project, and 2) equipment of the robot with powerful sensorial system in order to performe autonomous...

Simulations of ECS, ETC and LFE systems
Start year: 2004 - End year: 2007
Funder: AIRBUS

The objective of this project is the simulation of some general systems of the Eurofighter Aircraft and the integration of this simulation in the tests bank SEAD3. In this project our University works for EADS-CASA.

Manipulation of 3D objects using vision based control techniques
Start year: 2005 - End year: 2007
Funder: CICYT

The aim of this project is to search ways of approach and manipulation of 3D objects by robotic manipulator using vision and force control. The grasp and approach can be determined according to the shape of the object and...
