The SRV group hosts the 7th Technical Meeting of the EU-FP7 project INCASS

The SRV group hosts the 7th Technical Meeting of the EU-FP7 project INCASS

The SRV group hosts at the UIB the 7th Technical Meeting of the EU-FP7 project INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety) during 22-23 October 2015. The main goal of this project is the development of innovative technological solutions to improve and enhance safety inspections on large tonnage vessels, in order to reduce the risk of the operations and promote maritime security and environment protection. The meeting will account for the progress on the different project workpackages. Future actions will as well be discussed, such as, in particular, the upcoming field trials for the different robotic platforms developed within the framework of INCASS....

The SRV Group Offers a PhD Exchange under the Program EUROWEB ERASMUS MUNDUS

The SRV Group Offers a PhD Exchange under the Program EUROWEB ERASMUS MUNDUS

OFFER for Phd EUROWEB Exchange students : The Systems, Robotics and Vision group (SRV) consists of mostly members of the faculty staff of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department of the UIB (University of the Balearic Islands) and several PhD students. In the last years the group has developed Image Processing and Pattern Recognition methods for specific applications in Underwater Robotics. Updated information can be accessed at: http://srv.uib.es. Concerning Robot Vision, the area in which the research proposal will be carried out, solid results have been obtained by the group related to real-time image processing and understanding algorithms for 3D pose estimation, visual robot guidance and underwater manipulation. At present, SRV is involved in different funded projects. MERBOTS aims at progressing in the underwater intervention systems development so they can be carried out in a safer way and at a lower cost. The project is being developed under a consortium set up by the universities of Girona, Castellon and Balearic Islands. Different Robot Vision techniques will be developed under the responsibility of the SRV, ranging from the accurate multimodal 3D reconstruction of the area under study to supervised or unsupervised target detection and tracking. Some more details about these tasks are given next. Multimodal target detection: We aim at developing the methods necessary to locate the target of the intervention within the environment. To this end, the different sensor data modalities collected during the survey stage and later stored within the map will be analyzed. Different strategies will be considered in order to find matches between map areas and the target, what will lead to a number of potential...



A Micro-Aerial Platform for Vessel Visual Inspection based on Supervised Autonomy

A Micro-Aerial Platform for Vessel Visual Inspection based on Supervised Autonomy

Seagoing vessels have to undergo regular visual inspections in order to detect the typical defective situations affecting metallic structures, such as cracks and corrosion. These inspections are currently performed  by ship surveyors manually at a great cost. To make ship inspections safer and more cost-efficient, this paper presents a Micro-Aerial Vehicle (MAV) intended for visual inspection and based on supervised autonomy. On the one hand, the vehicle is equipped with a vision system that effectively teleports the surveyor from the base station to the areas of the hull that need inspection. On the other hand, the MAV is the result of a complete redesign of a visual inspection-oriented aerial platform that we proposed some years ago, with the aim of introducing the surveyor in the control loop and, in this way, enlarge the range of inspection operations that can robustly be carried out. Another goal is to make the platform as usable as possible for a non-expert. All this has been accomplished by means of the definition of different autonomous functions, including obstacle detection and collision prevention, and extensive use of behavior-based high-level control.  ...
