Líneas de investigación / Lines of research

Since my beginnings in the research career (around 1995), I have worked on different topics. Maybe the only thing they have in common is their application to robotics; otherwise they are quite diverse:

  • Environment representations for mobile robots (see publications of my group on this topic)
  • Mobile robot localization and mapping (see publications of my group on this topic)
  • Software development for large and long-term robotic projects (see publications of my group on this topic)
  • Networked telerobots (see publications of my group on this topic)
  • Software architectures for intelligent mobile robots (see publications of my group on this topic)
  • Automatic task planning applied to robots (see publications of my group on this topic)
  • Engineering in education (see publications of my group on this topic)

In addition, I maintain a number of much more vague research interests that are not, by far, as fulfilled as these (mainly for lack of time/personnel):

  • Intelligence frameworks for robots (in particular developmental robotics)
  • Complex systems
  • Bionics
  • Remote and distributed computation
  • New programming paradigms
  • Hard real-time systems
  • …and many others

These are the research papers that I have found interesting recently.
