The organizing committee and jury of the sixth edition of the Ada Byron Women in Technology Award, of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Deusto, has awarded the 2019 prize to Concepción Alicia Monje Micharet, researcher in Robotics and Professor at the University Carlos III of Madrid.
Doctor by the University of Extremadura in 2006, with Extraordinary Prize of Doctorate and Mention of European Doctorate, Concepción Alicia Monje develops, at the moment, her research work in the group RoboticsLab of the University Carlos III of Madrid. She has actively
The UTS Game Studio (University of Technology Sydney) had the pleasure to host Edwin Daniel Oña Simbaña, a Ph.D. Candidate from the RoboticsLab in the Systems Engineering and Automation Department of the University Carlos III of Madrid
During his stay, Mr. Oña worked closely with Games Studio Co-Directors Dr. Jaime Garcia and Dr. William Raffe on a project titled: “Development of Serious Games for rehabilitation and assessment of upper limbs motor function”.
The main goal of the research project was to explore the use of Serious Games for the automation of clinical procedures for motor function assessment.
RoboCity2030 consortium has been extended after obtaining funding by the call Convocatoria de Ayudas para la Realización de Programas de Actividades de I+D entre Grupos de Investigacion de la Comunidad de Madrid en Tecnologías co-funded by Structural Funds from the European Union. The new program acronym is RoboCity2030-DIH-CM and the official code is S2018/NMT-4331.
The Robotics Group at URJC organizes the third edition of the robot
programming competition “Program-A-Robot”. It will be celebrated
inside the International Conference on Intelligent robots and Systems
(IROS 2018). This competition aims at engineering students, grad,
master or PhD students all around the world, and its goal is to foster
robotics and computer vision providing nice challenges. In 2018 it
proposes two challenges about the programming the autonomous
intelligence of a drone. First, it will have to search, chase and
stay close to another aerial robot. Second, the drone will have to
take off inside a hangar and
UC3M has launched two new projects through the II call of its CROWD-UC3M collective microfinance program 2016-2017. These projects belong to the area of Social or Technological areas. The technological project is addressed by Ramón Barber (Robotics Lab, UC3M): “#AyudaTusSentidos: Bracelet to improve the lives of people with hearing difficulties”. The initiative has been funded by the crowdfunding program Precipita. You can find more information here.
The Robotics Group at URJC has participated in the RoboCup-2018
international competition at Montreal with the Gentlebots team. It
participated in the @Home league, the Social Standard Platform League
with software for autonomous navigation, human-robot interaction etc,
inside the Pepper humanoid platform. You can find more information here and here.
The “JdeRobot-Universidad Rey Juan Carlos” organization has been
selected for the Google Summer of Code program. 6 students around the
world have been paid by Google in 2018 to be software developers into
the JdeRobot open source project for robotics and computer vision.
