DOCTORAL THESIS: Advanced Underwater Vehicle Manipulation through Real-Time Motion Planning

By Dina Nagui Youakim Isaac Supervised by Dr. Pere Ridao     Abstract A key challenge in autonomous mobile manipulation is the ability to determine in real-time how to safely execute complex tasks when placed in an unknown world. Motion Planning has been widely used in terrestrial and aerial robots to cope with such challenges, while it stayed unexplored for underwater intervention. In the last few years, Intervention Autonomous Underwater Vehicles…

Oliver Díaz has recently joined two new working groups of the EFOMP

VICOROB’s member Oliver Díaz has recently joined two new working groups (WGs) of the European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP). Each WG has specific objectives to accomplish within the next two years (2019-2021). In the first WG (Breast tomosynthesis QC protocol), new protocols will be defined to perform quality control tests on breast tomosynthesis systems to guarantee a minimum image quality for breast cancer diagnosis. The other WG…
