Satellite recovery by robotic systems using computer vision
Start year: 2005 - End year: 2008
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 industrial and service applications
Manipulation of 3D objects using vision based control techniques
Start year: 2005 - End year: 2007
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 the free space to reach it.
Martian dust wiper
Start year: 2005 - End year: 2006
Funder: Center for Astrobiology, INTA
The objective of the project was to develop an extremely light wheight mechanism able to maintain free of dust the surface of a set of UV sensor to operate in Mars. The actuation mechanism is based in a SMA wire and the whole UV measurement equipment has
Simulations of ECS, ETC and LFE systems
Start year: 2004 - End year: 2007
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.
