Advanced Factories 2019: Autonomous mobile robots for logistics and stock control

By |2019-04-02T10:23:26+00:00April 2nd, 2019|Events|

Start automating your industrial facility today with autonomous mobile robots! PAL Robotics will be at Advanced Factories (AF2019, 9-11th April, CCIB Barcelona), one of the main fairs in industrial automation and robotics, with the autonomous robots that take care of stock-taking and logistics tasks in the industrial and service sectors. We will also show the [...]

ERF2019: Humanoids state-of-the-art, Autonomous Mobile Robots, and TIAGo robot teleoperated

By |2019-04-01T10:42:41+00:00April 1st, 2019|Events|

The European Robotics Forum (ERF2019), one of the most influential events in robotics, was a success again on its 10th edition! PAL Robotics could show how service robots can help in different areas, both through our hands-on demos, that attendees could enjoy at our stand and through the workshops in which we were invited to [...]

International Women’s Day – 8M: Calling for more women in STEM!

By |2019-03-08T12:56:17+00:00March 8th, 2019|Articles|

If we zoom into the STEM occupations (those which relate to science, technology, engineering, and math), we see that women are still underrepresented in some of them. According to data from the Pew Research Center, only 14% of engineering workers are women, 25% in computer jobs. This means there’s still a path to walk to [...]

ERF2019: Roboticists in Europe, to come together in Bucharest!

By |2019-03-05T11:42:38+00:00March 5th, 2019|Events|

Meet us at the European Robotics Forum (ERF2019)! Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is getting ready to host the European robotics flagship forum from the 20th to the 22nd of March. As usual, multiple conferences and tracks will take place to discuss the state-of-art of robotics and how Europe is leading such progress, all surrounded by [...]

MWC 4YFN: Robotics, AI and Connectivity, the perfect mix

By |2019-02-26T14:55:56+00:00February 26th, 2019|Events|

The future of mobile and connectivity landed in Barcelona this week with the Mobile World Congress and the 4YFN! The MWC Four Years From Now (4YFN) explores the trends that shape how the world will look like in a few years from now, one of which is clearly robotics. Robotics, AI, and connectivity are three [...]

The future of Social Robotics at JSSR 2019

By |2019-02-13T07:45:45+00:00February 12th, 2019|Events|

When we look at the future, we envision robots that cooperate with us, assist us at home or collaborate in an industrial workspace. Human-Robot Interaction is a must, and this implies robots to get social. That is what the 4th Joint UAE Symposium on Social Robotics (JSSR 2019) was about: to look into the state [...]

Using the Whole Body Control online planner with TIAGo robot

By |2019-02-07T11:36:50+00:00February 7th, 2019|Articles|

Planning high-level tasks online and forgetting about controlling or commanding each and every motor: this is what enables our customization of the Whole Body Control concept (developed by N. Mansard, O. Stasse, P. Evrard, and A. Kheddar) when coding robot applications. We are sure Whole Body Control is the future: robots with a high amount [...]

MEMMO: Giving memories to robots for a better motion generation

By |2019-02-05T07:37:42+00:00February 1st, 2019|Articles|

Avoiding obstacles or interacting with a dynamic environment can still be a challenge for robots, especially for those which are complex, like legged humanoids. PAL Robotics is part of an ambitious EU-funded project called MEMMO that aims to solve this challenge by creating a new way of generating motions for the robots. MEMMO relies on [...]

TIAGo robot ROS Tutorial 4: OpenCV

By |2019-01-16T10:14:55+00:00January 16th, 2019|Articles|

Eager to program robotics applications? TIAGo robot's simulation is open source and is available online: even if you don’t have the platform physically, you can work with it! The simulation is perfect for enhancing your coding abilities and also for getting started in robotics. TIAGo has a set of comprehensive tutorials of all levels to download [...]
