DEEPFIELD Thematic Workshop: Autonomous Underwater Intervention

The first Thematic Workshop called “Autonomous Underwater Intervention” took place on February 11th and 12th within the framework of the European project Deepfiled.   Pere Ridao, Patryk Cieslak and Guillem Vallicrosa run the training in the Girona’s Science and Technology Park. During the event, both INESC TEC and UdG students expanded their knowledge about the intervention and manipulation of an autonomous underwater vehicle. This training was conducted with a simulation,…

DOCTORAL THESIS: Deep learning methods for automated detection of new multiple sclerosis lesions in longitudinal magnetic resonance images

By Mostafa Salem Supervised by Prof. Joaquim Salvi / Prof. Xavier Lladó   Abstract Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, which is characterized by the presence of lesions in the brain and the spinal cord. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a core para-clinical tool for diagnosing and predicting long-term disability and treatment response in MS patients. It has been accepted that dissemination in time…

DOCTORAL THESIS: Online 3D View Planning for Autonomous Underwater Exploration

By Eduard Vidal Garcia Supervised by Dr. Marc Carreras / Dr. Narcís Palomeras   Abstract Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are currently used in many different applications, such as near-bottom mapping, manipulation or inspection. Most of the time, these tasks are planned in advance using prior information about the environment where the robot will operate. When this prior information does not exist, robotic exploration algorithms can be used so that the robot…
