This is the official wiki of the Robotics Group of the University of León (ULE). We are a group of researchers (faculty and students) interested in creating autonomous behaviour for mobile robots.


We are proud members of RedAF (Red Nacional de Investigación en Agentes Físicos), ReteCog (Red Temática de Ciencia Cognitiva), and Euron.


Our lab is in the second floor of the MIC building (Módulo de Investigación en Cibernética - Cybernetics Research Module). If you are interested in our work, you are welcome to pay us a visit.


We also hang around the EIII (Escuela de Ingenierías Industrial e Informática - Engineering School), which is here.


(September 30, 2015) This is the Team Description Paper of our "Watermelon Project" team for the next RoCKIn@home Challenge. This competition will take place in Lisbon (Portugal).

RoCKIn competition

(February 6, 2015) We are happy to inform that we have been accepted into the RoCKIn Camp 2015 that will take place on Peccioli (Pisa, Italy) next March!

(November 24, 2014) Coinciding with the European Robotics Week, we are going to participate in the first competition event of RoCKIn. It will take place in the Cité de l'espace science museum in Toulouse, France.

You can follow up with us here.

For the last two months, we have been using Mountain hardware for research and development with our robots. The control software of the CeRVaNTeS platform runs on a F-13 laptop. Soon, our MYRABot platorm will also mount one of their machines.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to Mountain for their support to small research groups like ours.

(June 16, 2014) CeRVaNTeS platform. First steps and proof of concept:


(January 25-31, 2014) RoCKIn camp participation. Our team attended the RoCKIn Camp 2014 on Rome, Italy. There they tested the performance of the MYRABot system in a competition environment. Also, the members participated in the lectures and in the practical sessions about basic software infrastructure, perception, manipulation and human robot interaction through speech.
