STRONGMAR winter school takes place in Girona

Last week, from 17 to 21st of October, took place in Girona the STRONGMAR winter school on “Underwater Vision and Robotics”. In the framework of this twinning action, EC funded, that aims to enhance the scientific and technological capacity of INESC TEC and linked institutions in research, such training activities are a key for success.   Our team shared its knowledge on the topics of underwater vision and path planning. Further training is planned in the future, both in Porto and in Girona again.   Around 20 students attended the event together with engineers, professors and postdoctoral fellows.   More…

IQUA Robotics – la nova EBT de ViCOROB

Una nova concepció de la robòtica submarina amb més capacitat d’observació, flexibilitat per adaptar els dispositius a un gran número d’aplicacions i qualitat dels dissenys. Aquests són els punts clau dels productes que oferirà IQUA Robotics S.L, una nova empresa de base tecnològica (EBT) sorgida de la Universitat de Girona i que s’ha constituït aquest matí al Parc Científic i Tecnològic.   L’empresa s’ha creat a partir de la valorització dels resultats de projectes duts a terme al CIRS, el laboratori de recerca en robòtica submarina de l’Institut de Visió per Computador i Robòtica (VICOROB) de la UdG en els…

EXCELLABUST project meeting at Breaking the Surface 2016 in Croatia

Laboratory for Underwater Systems and Technologies (LABUST) at the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical and Engineering (UNIZG-FER) in Croatia positioned itself in the last years as the regional leader in marine robotics: LABUST has the required technologies, people, infrastructure, and experience in field experiments.   What LABUST is missing is research excellence that will allow it to fully exploit and bring available resources to a level compatible with internationally leading institutions in the area of marine robotics.   The main goal of EXCELLABUST project is to address networking gaps and deficiencies between UNIZG-FER and internationally leading counterparts at EU…

R2B2 workshops! 5 years of history at the UdG!

Dissemination of research is a must nowadays. Back in 2009, at the University of Girona and inspired in dissemination techniques of MIT, three professors of Computer Vision and Robotics Institute designed the R2B2 workshops. These 3-day workshops consist on building underwater robots out of recycled materials in a low cost basis. Teams of 3 to 5 students from 12 to 16 years old, conceive, design, build and test their own prototypes at the University. They are taught the principles on mathematics, physics and robotics in order to be able to make a complete design that finally works. Supported by a…

We participate in EMRA 2016

European Marine Robotics community gathers together every year in the EMRA workshop. This event, created three years ago as a dissemination event of the main EU marine robotics related projects, is an event in projection where the main stakeholders on marine robotics field discuss, present and contrast their opinions on the sector.   2016 edition took place in Newcastle University (UK), a perfect framework for two long days of networking for further projects, events and business!   In May 2017, the event will take place in Girona, at the Science and Technology Park of the University of Girona.   See…

L’equip de la Universitat de Girona guanya el Grand Challenge de la competició europea de robòtica euRathlon 2015

L’equip integrat per la Universitat de Girona (UdG) en la part marina, Cobham d’Ostfildern (Alemanya) en la terrestre i ISEP/INESC TEC Aerial Robotics de Porto (Portugal) en la aèria, van guanyar el Grand Challenge de la competició de robòtica europea euRathlon.   L’euRathlon és la primera competició de robòtica internacional on robots terrestres, aeris i marins cooperen en un escenari realista per tal de desenvolupar i testejar la tecnologia enfocada a la preparació per a fer front a una situació catastròfica (terratrèmol, explosió,…). La competició, inspirada en l’actuació de rescat que es va fer després del desastre de Fukushima, aquest…
