RoboCup 2016 (Leipzig, Germany, 28 June - 4th July 2016)

The GentleBots team participate for the first time in the RoboCup@Home competition. Gentlebots is a joint team made up by the Robotics Group from Universidad Rey Juan Carlos and our group


Robotica 2016 and ICARSC 2016 (Bragança, Portugal, May 2016)

The RoboCup Team traveled to Bragança to take part in Robotica 2016, the Portuguese National Robotic Festival that took place from May 4th to May 8th. In the same venue took place the IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Systems and Competitions where the group presented the paper.

Francisco Lera's PhD dissertation

Francisco J. Lera just became the newest doctor of the group. His defense was held on December the 11th and he got a "Sobresaliente Cum Laude". Congratulations, Fran!


RoCKIn 2015 (Lisboa)

RoCKIn2015, the second competition event in the EU-funded robotics project RoCKIn, was held in Lisbon (Portugal), 21-23 November 2015.


It was a joint event with the ROBOT'2015, the Second Iberian Robotics Conference where we also presented a paper

The team was in Rome testing the MYRABot robot. There, we learned different topics about vision, grasping, and natural language understanding. We tested the MB+ (MYRABot+) robot, a modification of MYRABot. Other robots were introduced in this competition, such as REEM from PAL Robotics.

3D Scanning and Printing

During the last two weeks Francisco Sedano gave a brief introduction to 3D prototyping technologies that can be applied to a wide variety of engineering applications. The training gave the students the knowledge to develop and use 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies.

  • We were proud members of the Spanish Team (SPITeam) in the RoboCup Standard Platform providing a goalkeeper. SPITeam was a joint effort of the [robotics group] of the Rey Juan Carlos University, Rovira y Virgili University and Universidad de León. Last Team Description paper can be found here. Our last competition entrance was in Instambul 2011
