The Laboratory of Advanced Perception has been developing research work on the field of autonomous robots in the last years. Recently, two on going projects need financial support for their continuity. Both are in the field of knowledge representation. The first concerns the creation of an environment model where a mobile robot must execute a task through the addition of some semantics ...
One of the fundamental problems of mobile robots nowadays is the simultaneous localization and mapping in an unknown environment from which no previous knowledge is available. Knows as the SLAM problem, it has been the target of extensive research in the scientific community, looking for a way to allow the implementation of systems with this capacity in a complex and dynamic environm...
