Current Projects

  1. P1872.2 - Standard for Autonomous Robotics (AuR) Ontology
    “The purpose of the standard is to extend the CORA ontology to represent more specific concepts and axioms that are commonly used in Autonomous Robotics. The extended ontology specifies the domain knowledge needed to build autonomous systems comprised of robots that can operate in all classes of unstructured environments.”

Past Projects

  1. IEEE-ORA 1872 - Standard for Ontologies for Robotics and Automation.
    “This standard defines an overall ontology that allows for the representation of, reasoning about, and communication of knowledge in the robotics and automation domain. This ontology includes key terms as well as their definitions, attributes, constraints, and relationships. Sub-parts of this standard include a linguistic framework, generic concepts (an upper ontology), a methodology to add new concepts, and subdomain ontologies.”

  4. ROBOT@ESCOLA Robot@Escola - Escola de Robótica.
    O principal foco deste projeto é a cooperação entre equipas de professores e alunos dos ensinos básico e secundário e superior da região de Castelo Branco para o desenvolvimento de atividades na área da robótica. Os grupos das escolas participantes são convidados a definir um tema base para criação de robôs que sejam capazes de realizar tarefas do dia-a-dia com impacto na sociedade. Como apoio a alunos e professores deocrrerão workshops nas escolas participantes. Está prevista a divulgação do projeto através dos media e de site.

  6. ECHORD The European Clearing House for Open Robotics Development.

    “The purpose of ECHORD is to significantly advance technological know-how and to pursue progress and innovation in joint technology and application development in European robotics. The main instrument for achieving this goal is by setting up the framework for European research institutions and robot manufacturers to cooperate in experiments that have a maximum duration of 18 months, a that have a specific ,concrete focus and that use state-of-the-art equipment provided by the manufacturers. The concept of the experiments is based on past experiences with joint projects, and it intends to emulate the conditions that turned those projects into success stories.”
    - Funding: EU-FP7
    - Timespan: 2012-2013

  7. HIPROB Robot-assisted and ultrasound-guided navigation for hip resurfacing arthroplasty.
    “The objective of the HipRob collaborative project is to integrate a robotic system that will aid orthopaedic surgeons in performing Hip Resurfacing prosthesis surgery with consistent high accuracy and precision. A co-manipulation robotic solution for hip resurfacing surgery based on variable impedance control for physical surgeon-robot interaction will be developed, as well as an ultrasound image sensor for non-invasive real-time bone tracking. The innovative co-manipulation setting to the medical gesture brings together the higher geometric accuracy and precision of the robot manipulator with the higher sensibility and decision making capability of the surgeon when applying force, thus resulting in clear benefits for patients, doctors and hospitals.”
