ROBOTICS | UNIVERSITY OF ZARAGOZA

 The goal of this project is the research of computer vision and robotic techniques to be part of a personal assistance system based on visual information. This visual assistant will be wearable and will include both conventional and non-conventional cameras. This project is the continuation of our previous VISPA project in which we start researching in non-conventional vision systems for personal assistance.



 The research project involves deployment and actuation techniques of a multi-robot team. It is necessary to address problems of task planning and allocation, coordinated execution of the navigation, perception of the environment from multiple views from each of the team members, maintaining communication between all system components – robots, infrastructure, bridges, monitoring equipment, etc. This project will address new goals and challenges for research and their application in real, large and complex scenarios



 The goal of this project is the research of computer vision techniques, merged with methodologies developed in the robotics field, to take part of a personal assistance system based on visual information. This visual assistant will be wearable and will include both conventional and non-conventional cameras. It will be able to process locally some tasks and it will also have wireless communication with other global information servers or sensors. We search for a human-centered system, which complements rather than replaces human abilities, to help visually impaired people or people with problems of orientation and also people with normal visual capabilities in specific tasks.



 The project proposes to investigate techniques for a multi-robot team to act in coordination in realistic scenarios. For the deployment, it is necessary to deal with algorithms and methods related to task planning and allocation, coordinated navigation planning, environment perception from multiple views provided by every member of the team, while the communication connectivity among all the elements of the system is maintained – robots, infrastructure, supervisor team, etc. Although some of the techniques involved are usually proposed in the literature and in many projects somehow independently, the research in this project will also be oriented to develop techniques integrating the different subjects involved. Only in this way it will be possible to develop realistic applications using systems with autonomous and supervised behaviours.



 The complex nature of mobile robot tasks leads to the necessity of systems with several coordinated robots (agents) working in cooperation. Some international directives refer to robotic elements connected to the communication nets or wireless nets including the robots themselves and the sensors distributed in the working place (static agents) exchanging and sharing information. This concept is extended to robot interactions between humans, the sensors and the environment. We propose this project which is very related with previous MEC projects obtained by this research team, to continue working on subjects related to multi-robot cooperation techniques, computer vision, robot vision for motion and communications.



 The main project objective is the research in exploration strategies: a set of perception-action techniques that allow to obtain environment information, to plan motions for refining and completing this information (active perception), and to perform safe robot motions in non-structured scenarios. In recent years, these techniques have been greatly improved and have been applied in indoor environments with very good results. The goal of this project is to further develop these techniques to apply them to novel problems and more difficult scenarios, like rescue operations.
