MAIA master

La Universitat de Girona generarà a partir del curs que ve nous professionals de la imatge mèdica

La Universitat de Girona (UdG) aconsegueix el seu primer màster conjunt europeu coordinat dins el programa Erasmus +. Es tracta del MAIA – Master in Medical Imaging and Applications, promogut des de l’Institut en Visió per Computador i Robòtica (ViCOROB) amb el professorat del departament d’Arquitectura i Tecnologia de Computadors (ATC) de l’Escola Politècnica Superior (EPS). Aquest projecte de màster Erasmus + s’engloba perfectament dins la política d’internacionalització dels màsters…

FP7 European Project MORPH: Demonstration of Cutting Edge Co-operative Underwater Robotics System in the Azores

From 31 August to 11 September 2015, the Center of IMAR of the University of the Azores is hosting the final demonstration of a new type of robotics-based distributed sensor system, aimed at affording marine scientists and commercial operators a revolutionary tool for marine habitat mapping in complex underwater 3D environments. The trials form the ultimate project demonstration of the EC research project MORPH, entitled Marine Robotic System of Self-Organising,…

Project-phantom

We attend to a workshop on anthropomorphic phantoms

Last week, seventeen European experts in medical physics, including ViCOROB’s member Oliver Díaz, attended to a workshop on anthropomorphic phantoms at the Technical University of Varna (Bulgaria). This course corresponds to the fifth module of the series EUTEMPE·RX (European Training and Education for Medical Physics Experts in Radiology).   For a week, all participants learnt to implement realistic computer models which resemble anatomical structures, organs or whole human body. These…

Former ViBOT student Chee Sing Lee defends his PhD Thesis

This thesis focuses on the problem of SLAM, in particular feature-based SLAM, where a mobile autonomous vehicle explores an unknown environment, navigating by observing landmarks. As the environment is previously unexplored, SLAM algorithms must estimate the location of the landmarks in addition to the location of the vehicle. The majority of research in feature-based SLAM builds on the legacy of foundational work using the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF), a single-object…

Out on holidays

It is time to rest, we are going out of the office for a few days !!! More precisely, from the 1st to the 31st of August. Take your time to rest, play, travel, swim…in short, enjoy the summer and try to recover your batteries for the return. See you again from the 1st of September!!   Toca descansar, ens n’anem durant uns dies!!!  En concret de l’1 d’agost al…

Christian Mata defends his PhD thesis “Web-based Application for Medical Imaging Management”

The rapid growth of digital technology in medical fields during the last few years has increased the need for applications able to manage patient medical records, imaging tests, and chart information. Technologies related with digital database architectures, storage and transmission protocols, management of large volumes of data, and security are being improved every day, allowing the possibility of reading, analyzing, and even diagnosing a case far from the medical center…

Construint robots submarins al CIRS

Al llarg d’aquesta setmana té lloc el campus PRESUB on joves de tota la província venen a conèixer de primera mà com és un robot submarí i, és més, fins i tot en construeixen un! La iniciativa del departament d’Arquitectura i Tecnologia de Computadors de la UdG ja ha arribat a la tercera edició i està éssent tot un èxit.   L’objectiu bàsic d’aquests tallers és la realització d’activitats científico-tecnològiques…
