7th ViBOT DAY takes place in Girona

The ViBOT day is an event that the Erasmus Mundus Master VIBOT organizes every year at the Scientific and Technological park at the University of Girona. In this occasion, it took place last 19th of June 2014 with the main goal of establishing a link between companies and graduate students.   Along the ViBOT day the students have the chance to present their work in front of a wide audience in which there are other students but also professors and companies. On the other hand, interested companies, present their job profiles as well as their activity to try attracting talent….

Cooperation agreement between University of Girona and Gunadarma University

As a result of the participation of Indonesian students in the Erasmus Mundus Programme in Computer Vision and Robotics, ViBOT, the University of Girona signed last 13th of June 2014 a Cooperation Agreement with Gunadarma University, considered the best university of Inodesia according to the Webometrics 2014 ratio.   From ViCOROB we would like to thank the delegation that visited us for their commitment and the interest shown on all our research lines. Hope to see you again soon!   Source: Universitat de Girona

EMRA2014

PRESENTING PANDORA FP7 AND MORPH FP7 PROJECTS AT EMRA 2014

Our researchers Pere Ridao and Marc Carreras are currently in Rome in the Workshop on EU Funded Marine Robotics and Applications (EMRA 2014). Researchers and users of marine robotic technology are invited to EMRA2014. The workshop shall summarize current EU FP7 marine robotics research, and provide a platform for marine stakeholders to share their current technological challenges. For researchers, EMRA2014 will offer dissemination opportunities for existing work, and highlight new application areas for consideration in future work. For marine research stakeholders, EMRA2014 will offer novel approaches to solve marine challenges, and a platform for directing future research threads. MORPH project will…

EU launches world’s largest civilian robotics programme – 240,000 new jobs expected

The European Commission and 180 companies and research organisations (under the umbrella of euRobotics) today launch the world’s largest civilian research and innovation programme in robotics. Covering manufacturing, agriculture, health, transport, civil security and households, the initiative – called SPARC – is the EU’s industrial policy effort to strengthen Europe’s position in the global robotics market (€60 billion a year by 2020). This initiative is expected to create over 240,000 jobs in Europe, and increase Europe’s share of the global market to 42% (a boost of €4 billion per year). The European Commission will invest €700 million and euRobotics €2.1…

VIBOT Erasmus Mundus Master gets “International Master Distinction” from the Catalan Government

A total of 59 official masters taught by different Catalan universities have gained a new distinction of International Master’s Programme (IMP), promoted by the Catalan Government. This accreditation aims to promote studies with a high degree of internationalization taught in the higher education system in Catalonia. The UdG has received this distinction for two programs: Erasmus Mundus European Master’s in Tourism Management (EMTM) and Erasmus Mundus European Master’s in Vision and Robotics (VIBOT).   The Director General of Universities, Luis Jofre, said this new label is a clear action that shows the commitment of Catalonia on “promoting internationalization and international…

Ricard Campos defends his PhD thesis “Surface Reconstruction Methods for Seafloor Modelling”

Underwater maps are an important source of information for the scientific community, since mapping the seafloor is the starting point for underwater exploration. The advance of range scanning methodologies, both using acoustic and optical techniques, enables the mapping of the seabed to attain increasingly larger resolutions. However, all these techniques sample the surface to reconstruct in the form of a point cloud. For the case of areas containing non-trivial 3D relief, achieving a continuous representation from this discrete sampling is a complex task.   Surface reconstruction methods try to tackle this problem by recovering a continuous surface representing the object…

SPARUS II AUV

SPARUS II AUV on their way to euRathlon competition

Last week we received the visit of the teams that are going to compete in euRathlon with our SPARUS II AUVs.   We had to say goodbye to our prototyes that are now being tested in their final destinations! Good luck and thanks to euRathlon team for trusting us!   More info about euRathlon: http://www.eurathlon.eu/ More info about SPARUS II AUV: http://cirs.udg.edu/auvs-technology/auvs/sparus-ii-auv/

TRITON National Funded Project experiments in Girona

From Monday 12th to Friday 16th of May, the TRITON national project experiments where held in Girona. The goal of these experiments was to localize an underwater panel with an acoustic ranging sensor. Once the panel is localized, the AUV homes to it and, once closer, using a vision-based system docks in it and performs an autonomous intervention. This intervention is split in two parts, first the vehicle manipulates a valve (open/close) and then connects and disconnects a hot stab. The first day was dedicated to system integration between the Girona500, the arm brought by the UJI team and the…
