A robot localization system solely based on distance sensors

A robust localization system that uses only distances to a small set of non-synchronized radio beacons at very small update rates. This innovative location system has been developed by Professor Fernando Caballero (Universidad de Sevilla) and Professor Luis Merino (Universidad Pablo de Olavide) with the collaboration of PAL Robotics, in a successful example of the [...]

PAL Robotics at 2016 ROS-Industrial Conference

ROS-Industrial project aims to apply ROS (Robot Operating System), the de facto standard in robotics, to the industry. Having a shared open operative system in robotics gains relevance when it is applied to manufacturing applications and opens new possibilities for robots to be integrated in assembly chains. PAL Robotics was invited to the annual ROS-Industrial [...]
