Desarrollo de software para computo bioinspirado y bioinformatica
Custom uav is a complete flight control system in development. The project includes everything required for unmanned flight.
Cell decomposition is one of the first applicable solution for path planning - robot path planning. The algorithm aims to find free areas (cells not occupied by obstacles) in the configuration space, and build a graph of adjacency for these cells.
This is a tool(MATLAB code) to find out the least-weighing path in a maze containing coloured squares where every colour has its own specified weight/cost. By default, it is programmed to calculate the path in a 8x8 square maze.
openrave plugins for constrained manipulation
The Constrained Manipulation Planning Suite (CoMPS) consists of three openrave plugins and associated data files. The planning and inverse kinematics algorithms in this suite are designed for articulated robots like robotic arms and humanoids. CoMPS is implemented in C++ and compiles in linux only. There are also several examples in python and matlab that show how to interface with openrave to use the plugins in CoMPS. It has been tested on all Ubuntu version from the last few years and will probably work with most modern linux distributions. Please see the wiki for installation and examples: https://sourceforge.net/p/comps/wiki/Home/
DQ Robotics is an open-source (LGPLv3) standalone open-source Robotics library. It provides dual quaternion algebra, kinematic calculation algorithms in Python, MATLAB and C++ that can be applied in robot control. The library has a catkin package wrapper for use in ROS Indigo, and also provides a V-REP interface.

Analysis of undersea fish videos
The Fish4knowledge project investigated: information abstraction and storage methods for analyzing undersea video data (from 10E+15 pixels to 10E+12 units of information), machine and human vocabularies for detecting & describing fish, flexible process architectures to process the data and scientific queries and effective specialised user query interfaces. A combination of computer vision, database storage, workflow and human computer interaction methods were used to achieve this. The project used live video feeds from 10 underwater cameras as a testbed for investigating more generally applicable methods for capture, storage, analysis and querying of multiple video streams. We collated a public database from 3 years containing video summaries of the observed fish and associated descriptors. Expert web-based interfaces were developed for use by marine researchers, allowing unprecedented access to live and previously stored videos, or previously extracted information.

The HapticAnalysis Package is a set of toolboxes for analysis of (1-dof bilateral) Haptic Teleoperation Systems. Symbolic math in GNU/Maxima, numerics in Mathworks Matlab. The teleoperator is analyzed using the H-matrix model.
This project aims to develop a colour-based vision processing system for use in RoboCup. We are using a CCD camera for input to an FPGA. The system locates coloured objects and outputs detected corners.
This project is to design a high speed vision system used in RoboCup.It involves integrating an FPGA onto the current robotic platform and implement software to do object recognition and provide useful informations to the rest of Robotic system.
The KUKA Control Toolbox (KCT) is a collection of MATLAB functions developed at the University of Siena, for motion control of KUKA robot manipulators.
This project's goal is to design a system in which a robot learns how to pick up objects.
MIT's spacecraft simulator for control algorithm development
The SPHERES simulation is designed to support most software-related aspects of single- and multi-satellite SPHERES operations. The simulation code base consists of simulated versions of most of the SPHERES core flight code and additional code that simulates dynamics, communications, and other environmental interaction. The simulation is particularly valuable during the early stages of algorithm development and implementation as an aid in accelerating the learning curve for any Guest Scientist for SPHERES. Algorithms may be implemented in C or Embedded MATLAB and executed in the MATLAB simulation environment to verify general desired behavior. With some limitations, the code used in the simulation can be directly transferred to the SPHERES hardware. We are sharing this project with the public to gather more interest for SPHERES Guest Scientists. Feel free to use and contribute to this code base, just don't forget to credit the MIT Space Systems Lab if you distribute any results.
Matlab interface to the Open Dynamics Engine (ODE)
MatODE is a simple Matlab toolbox for interfacing to the Open Dynamics Engine rigid body physics simulator (ODE, by Russell Smith), created by the Delft Biorobotics Lab (Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands). The system to be simulated is defined in an XML file, while the joint positions and motor signals can be sensed and actuated from a Matlab script. Examples are provided. Starting at version 0.30, MatODE is only available for Windows and Linux 64-bit. For older 32-bit versions, select "Browse all files".
Library for working with 3D rotations in Matlab/Octave
The Matlab/Octave rotations library is a collection of functions, bundled as m-scripts, that address computations and numerical handling of rotations in 3D Euclidean space. The rotation representations that are supported are rotation matrices (Rotmat), Quaternions (Quat), intrinsic ZYX Euler angles (Euler), fused angles (Fused) and tilt angles (Tilt). Operations such as composition, inversion, ZYX yaw extraction, fused yaw extraction, random generation, equality detection, vector rotation and much more have been implemented for each rotation representation. Tilt vector addition and the relative and absolute tilt phase spaces are also supported. Unit tests for each function are provided to ensure that the library is performant.
