Selfception: TIAGo robot, to recognize itself in the mirror using AI

By |2019-12-09T08:33:48+00:00December 2nd, 2019|Articles|

Perception in robotics can be trickier than we think. Just think for a moment how complex the human perception is: How do we know that it is us when we look at the mirror, even if we see us from a different perspective? How can we recognize a person even if time passess and he/she [...]

TIAGo at RoboCup 2019 podium: Homer Team wins the OPL (again) and CATIE Team goes 3rd!

StockBot keeps expanding its presence and helping retailers control stock; now we can also find our inventory robot at Decathlon Singapore Labs store. StockBot automates stock count in retail stores and warehouses, generating a 3D map with the products’ location and enabling an exhaustive knowledge of stock fluctuation. This year, our inventory robot started working at [...]

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 [...]

Using the Whole Body Control online planner with TIAGo robot

By |2019-07-09T08:46:08+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 (based on the research done by N. Mansard, O. Stasse, P. Evrard, and A. Kheddar) when coding robot applications. We are sure Whole Body Control is the future: robots [...]

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 [...]
