Availability of a motion capture system for MAV characterization and validation for inspection applications

  An Optitrack motion capture (mocap) system from NaturalPoint Inc. is now available at the SRV lab. The mocap system comprises 8 cameras —4x PRIME13W (FOV 82º, at the laboratory mid points) and 4x PRIME13 (FOV 56º, at the laboratory corners)— and a 24-port Ethernet switch, together with a desktop computer running the motion capture software. (Funded in the context of the MOCAP project [ref. AAEE50/2015] by the Government of the Balearic Islands and by FEDER...

INCASS Second Field Testing Campaign results

INCASS Second Field Testing Campaign results

On 25-27 May 2016 members of the SRV group attended a testing campaign on-board a bulk carrier in Gdansk (Poland). During testing, several areas of the vessel were covered to check the suitability of the Micro-Aerial Vehicle developed by SRV for the INCASS project. The different areas entailed different operating conditions: higher or shorter heights, higher or lower illumination, uneven floors, etc. The following videos illustrate the inspection tasks performed. Summary video covering all testing areas.   Flights inside one of the cargo holds.   Flights inside the forepeak tank.   Flights inside one of the topside...






SRV student awarded at the 2016 Summer School on Artificial Intelligence (EVIA)

SRV student awarded at the 2016 Summer School on Artificial Intelligence (EVIA)

The Spanish Association of Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA) honored Laura López Fuentes with the Best Final Degree Project award. The project was selected among the Final Degree Projects presented at the Summer School on Artificial Intelligence (EVIA) held in Carmona (Seville) on June 2016. Laura López received a degree in Industrial Electronics and Automation from the University of the Balearic Islands on June 2014. In his FDP, completed at the Systems, Robotics and Vision group and supervised by Dr. Oliver-Codina, Laura studied the image vignetting and she designed a new algorithm to reduce this effect and its application to underwater images. Most relevant results of this project were presented at the International Work Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (IWANN) in Palma de Mallorca on June 2015 (see the manuscript...
