Construint robots submarins al CIRS

Al llarg d’aquesta setmana té lloc el campus PRESUB on joves de tota la província venen a conèixer de primera mà com és un robot submarí i, és més, fins i tot en construeixen un! La iniciativa del departament d’Arquitectura i Tecnologia de Computadors de la UdG ja ha arribat a la tercera edició i està éssent tot un èxit.   L’objectiu bàsic d’aquests tallers és la realització d’activitats científico-tecnològiques de caire lúdic que resultin interessants i atractives que permetin incrementar el interès de la societat, i més concretament dels estudiants de secundària, per la tecnologia i que fomentin els valors propis de l’enginyeria. Aquest objectiu és compartit pel Consell Social de la Universitat de Girona i pel Patronat de l’Escola Politècnica Superior que donen suport a aquesta edició d’estiu dels tallers de robòtica submarina.   D’altra banda, un dels interessos principals del grup de recerca en Visió per Computador…

WE ATTEND THE EUROPEAN ROBOTICS FORUM IN VIENNA

Last week we participated actively in European Robotics Forum that took place in the beautiful city of Vienna (Austria). There, besides meeting with researchers in robotics field in Europe, we had the chance to participate in the Entrepreneurial Workshop (in the framework of ROCKeu project) and to attend presentations on various projects on our field.   In the event, the main representatives of euRobotics platform where chosen. They will be the team that might contribute to the definition of H2020 robotics policies along 2015. Next year, the meeting point will be Ljubjana in Slovenia.   The University of Girona, together with other European 207 institutions and companies, is a member of the platform. euRobotics AISBL (Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif) is a Brussels based international non-profit association for all stakeholders in European robotics. euRobotics builds upon the success of the European Robotics Technology Platform (EUROP) and the academic network of EURON, and will not…

ROBOCADEMY PROJECT MEETING IN GIRONA

During the last days of January (28-30.1.2015) Girona was the venue of the project meeting as well as the first workshop of the ROBOCADEMY – “European Academy for Marine and Underwater Robotics”, FP7-PEOPLE-2013-ITN, project. Starting with the project meeting on the 28th, which was first of a kind for the vast majority of the fellows, gave all involved a good opportunity to get acquainted and the fellows the opportunity to present their projects and current progress to the rest of the peers and their supervisors. Additionally, future scientific trainings and minor organizational questions were addressed rounding a successful meeting. For the following two days, 10 fellows of the ROBOCADEMY project participated in the training event (NT2 – Autonomous Underwater Robotics) taught by Dr. Pere Ridao, Dr. Marc Carreras, Dr. Narcis Palomeras and Carles Candela. Workshop gave the participants a broad overview of the basics of the underwater robotics heavily supported…
