Open call for papers: Technical track on Intelligent Robotics and Multi-Agent Systems (IRMAS)

The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. The technical track on Intelligent Robotics and Multi–Agent Systems (IRMAS) will be organized for the eighth time in SAC 2022, exploiting the inherent synergy between Robotics and Multi–Agent Systems (MAS), thus aiming to bring together these highly related and exciting research fields. Robotics is a multidisciplinary research area that presents an enormous potential. It concerns developing intelligent robotic systems that are capable of making decisions and acting autonomously in real and unpredictable environments to accomplish tasks and assist humans in relevant application domains for society. Several complex problems require the use of teams of cooperative robots that share the same challenges studied in MAS. https://sac2022-irmas.isr.uc.pt/ Important Dates October 15, 2021 : Paper submission December 10, 2021 : Acceptance notification December 21, 2021 : Camera–ready...



The SRV organises the 19th IEEE International Conference on Industrial Informatics

The SRV organises the 19th IEEE International Conference on Industrial Informatics

The present and the future of industrial informatics are the central axis of the IEEE International Conference on Industrial Informatics (INDIN’21), an international scientific meeting that was held online on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of July and which has been organized with the participation of the University of the Balearic Islands. Industry experts, researchers and academics met to share ideas and experiences around cutting-edge technologies, advances, innovative solutions, research results, as well as initiatives related to industrial computing and its applications. In the sessions of the congress, researchers presented the last results of the field of the industrial computing, and covered a wide range of subjects, from the cyberphysical systems in the industry to the industrial applications of the artificial intelligence. They also presented technologies that are specific to strategic applications such as smart buildings and cities, and smart grids. This is the 19th edition of the congress. The most recent previous editions were held in Beijing (China, 2012), Bochum (Germany, 2013), Porto Alegre (Brazil, 2014), Cambridge (UK, 2015), Poitiers (France, 2016), Emden (Germany, 2017), Porto (Portugal, 2018), Helsinki-Espoo (Finland, 2019) and Coventry (UK,...



The SRV will participate in the GRASSMAP scientific cruise funded by the Eurofleets+ programme

The SRV will participate in the GRASSMAP scientific cruise funded by the Eurofleets+ programme

On 14th to 19th September 2021, researchers from the universities of Southampton, Sydney and the Balearic Islands will carry out experiments with different autonomous systems: an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, an Autonomous Surface Vehicle and a Lagrangian Drifter. The scientific campaign is funded by the Eurofleets+ programme and will be carried out on board the RV SOCIB in the waters of the Marine Protected Area of Cabrera. These different platforms will be deployed to demonstrate in situ capabilities for marine data collection and seabed exploration, targeting endemic seagrass mapping using artificial intelligence. The campaign is under the direction of Dr. Miquel Massot-Campos, from the Ocean Perception research group of the University of...






Doctoral thesis: New Insights on Laser-based Structured Light for Underwater 3D Reconstruction

Doctoral thesis: New Insights on Laser-based Structured Light for Underwater 3D Reconstruction

By: Miquel Massot Campos Supervisor: Gabriel Oliver Codina Last 15th November, our former member Miquel Massot Campos successfully defended his PhD at the University of the Balearic Islands. Abstract Three-dimensional visual maps of the seafloor provide objective information to reliably characterise these scenes. These maps are of great study value for archaeological sites or geologically interesting areas. Often, spatial scales over 8 orders of magnitude are needed, from the millimetre resolution to the > 100 km², to recognise key features of interest to areas over which they are distributed. Delivering precise resolution at scale has been an issue for the last decade. Nowadays, new vision-based sensors such as lasers and structured light provide a higher resolution than known acoustic sensors. Using these innovative sensors poses new challenges in underwater localization as most of the mapping error comes now from the self-localization rather than from the measurement sensor. This thesis presents two different solutions to the visual mapping problem. The first part of the PhD presents a novel laser-based structured light system to increase 3D perception resolution, accuracy and frame rate when compared to acoustic counterparts and cameras. The system consists of a laser Diffractive Optical Element (DOE) that diffracts the beam in 25 parallel planes and a camera to recover the intersected lines to the seafloor. We propose a calibration procedure and solve the correspondence problem using a Maximum Spanning Tree algorithm. The experimental results show that the system draws a better representation of the objects in front and outperforms plain stereoscopy in featureless scenarios. The second part of the thesis uses a standard laser stripe instead, to cast...



Members of the SRV participate in the organization of the First Lego League

Members of the SRV participate in the organization of the First Lego League

Several members of the Systems, Robotics & Vision research group participate in the organization of the FIRST® LEGO® League tournament, as local organizers of the regional competition in the Balearic Islands. The initiative aims at promoting the STEM skills and knowledge among youngsters. This year we count with the participation of 26 different teams, together with 3 teams that will participate in the FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. modality. The competition will take place in the University of the Balearic Islands the 16th of February...
