Girona acull la quarta edició del Congrés de Robotica Submarina EMRA

Els passats dies 15 i 16 de Maig de 2017 va tenir lloc la conferència EMRA (4th Workshop on EU-funded Marine Robotics and Applications) al Parc Científic i Tecnològic de la Universitat de Girona. L’objectiu de l’esdeveniment és la posta en comú dels resultats dels projectes europeus que han estat finançats per la Comissió Europea dins la comunitat científica i la comunitat empresarial, fomentant la creació de xarxes de col·laboració i, sobretot, esperant la creació de sinèrgies per a nous projectes.   L’esdeveniment, que fou organitzat per l’Institut de Recerca ViCOROB de la Universitat de Girona conjuntament amb la Universitat…


MERBOTS/ARCHROV Experiments demonstrate semi-autonomous Grasping Capabilities

During the week of the 27th of March the experiments of the MERBOTS National Research project involving 3 teams form UJI, UIB and UdG have been held in Girona.   The experiments where first performed at the CIRS water tank and then reproduced at Sant Feliu Harbor. The experiments involved two cooperative robots. SPARUS II AUV equipped with a lateral thruster and a forward-looking camera was used as a ‘flying camera’. The robot was teleoperated to achieve a desired view of a target (an amphora) and Visual Servoing techniques were used to keep the robot in place. Then GIRONA 500…


Tools for 3D Point Cloud Registration

Doctoral thesis “Tools for 3D Point Cloud Registration”   By Ferran Roure García Supervised by Dr. Joaquim Salvi Mas and Dr. Yago Diez Donoso   Abstract The interest of digitization of the real world has been growing over the years. Computers help us to make it possible and research in this field has intensified with the emergence of new technologies in the commercial world. Representing our environment in formats that computers can understand is an essential step in the development of this technology. One way to capture our world is using sensors that digitize the objects around us using mathematical…


InventEUrs, un projecte per a convertir els infants en agents del canvi de les seves comunitats

La Universitat de Girona ha donat el tret de sortida a InventEUrs – Fostering invention-based collaborative learning for social change (I4EU), un projecte amb finançament europeu liderat pel clúster de grups de recerca UdiGitalEdu. El consorci de socis està integrat per l’escola Veïnat de Salt, el Liceul Tehnologic Constantin Ianculescu (Cracea, Romania),  University of Perugia (Perugia, Itàlia), la London South Bank University (Londres, Anglaterra) i l’Instituto d’Istruzione Superiore “G.Giovagnoli” (Perugia, Itàlia).   La finalitat del projecte és adaptar i millorar el programa Inventors4Change que, durant els últims tres anys, s’ha centrat a promoure les connexions entre infants de comunitats desavantatjades…


Rafael Garcia gives a talk in Vigo University on the development of technology for underwater exploration

Marine habitats play an important role in the understanding and management of ocean resources. The development of technology for underwater exploration is essential for the monitoring of these areas sensitive to environmental changes or pollution, but also for coastal development and management plans for marine protected areas. However, such exploration faces serious difficulties, mainly due to the intrinsic hostility of the underwater environment.   The advances of recent years in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence allow us to develop robots that are becoming more autonomous and allow us to process a greater amount of data in an automated…


Welcome to the EMRA 2017

Welcome to the 4th EU funded Marine Robotics and Applications Workshop (EMRA ’17)   We are pleased to invite you to attend the EMRA Workshop that will take place from 15-16 May 2017 in Girona at the Science and Technology Park at the University of Girona, Catalonia, Spain.   Following the success of the EMRA´16 that took place in 2016 in UK, we hereby invite researchers and end-users of marine robotics technology to attend EMRA´17. The workshop will summarize current EU FP7 and H2020 projects on  marine robotics and provide a platform for marine stakeholders to share and discuss current technological challenges and…


Wishing you the best for 2017

ViCOROB wants to wish you Happy Holidays and Happy New Year…:) This year we felt like going handcrafted / recycled to make our Christmas Greetings… The result is here, we hope you enjoy it! We will be closed from December the 23th to  January  the 6th  2017.     Des de ViCOROB us volem desitjar Bones Festes  i Feliç Any Nou 2017. Aquest any ens em sentit creatius, alhora de fer la nostra felicitació de Nadal… Aquest és el resultat, esperem el disfriteu!! Us recordem que, durant aquestes vacances (23 desembre a 6 de gener), restarem tancats.    


Computer-aided diagnosis for prostate cancer using multi-parametric MRI

Doctoral thesis “Computer-aided diagnosis for prostate cancer using multi-parametric MRI.”   By Guillaume Lemaître   Supervised by Robert Martí Marly , Jordi Freixenet Bosch , Fabrice Meriaudeau   Abstract Prostate cancer (CaP) is the second most diagnosed cancer in men all over the world. CaP growth is characterized by two main types of evolution: (i) the slow-growing tumours progress slowly and usually remain confined to the prostate gland; (ii) the fast-growing tumours metastasize from prostate gland to other organs, which might lead to incurable diseases. Therefore, early diagnosis and risk assessment play major roles in patient treatment and follow-up. In…
