RoboCity2030 at the European Robotics Week

RoboCity2030 will be at the European Robotics Week (26/11-2/12/2012, ( through activities of the University Carlos III of Madrid and the Center for Automation and Robotics - CAR (CSIC-UPM). The activities will include:
rnrnUniversidad Carlos III de Madrid
rnPerception for dexterous manipulation with anthropomorphic hands (exhibition for university students). Researchers of RoboticsLab are participating in the European research project HANDLE ( The project aims at understanding how humans perform the manipulation of objects in order to replicate abilities and in-hand movements with an anthropomorphic artificial hand. The project would be explained to the audience through a talk and an exhibition which will be divided into two parts. Robot grasping and manipulation require knowledge of the scene, thus, the first part will involve visual perception system demonstration of our robotic platform (RGB-D cameras and PA10 robotic arm). During the second part, we will show how to operate a simulated version of the project anthropomorphic robotic hand using the data glove CyberGlove for remote operations.
rnDates: 27/11/2012, 16:00 - 18:00; 28/11/2012, 10:15 - 13:15

rnROBOTICS LAB Tour to the Centre for Automation and Robotics - CAR (CSIC-UPM) (Mainly aimed at university students). A guided tour for interested groups accompanied by Professors and Researchers along several robotics and automation labs with in-situ presentations of recent advances in this area and research projects. In particular several EC funded projects will be visited and explained and some demonstrations will be shown covering a wide area of robot development.
