de Souza e Silva, Adriana. From multiuser environments as (virtual) spaces to (hybrid) spaces as multiuser environments – Nomadic technology devices and hybrid communication places. 2004. This dissertation addresses how mobile communication technologies, with a focus on cell phones, have an active role in creating new types of communication and social(More)
Humans are experts in cooperating in a smooth and proactive manner. Action and intention understanding are critical components of efficient joint action. In the context of the EU Integrated Project JAST [16] we have developed an anthropomorphic robot endowed with these cognitive capacities. This project and respective robot (ARoS) is the focus of the video.(More)
Grasping an object successfully implies avoiding colliding into it before the hand is closed around the object. The present study focuses on prehension kinematics that typically reflect collision-avoidance characteristics of grasping movements. Twelve participants repeatedly grasped vertically-oriented cylinders of various heights, starting from two(More)

Previously we have presented a model for generating human-like arm and hand movements on an unimanual anthropomorphic robot involved in human-robot collaboration tasks. The present paper aims to extend our model in order to address the generation of human-like bimanual movement sequences which are challenged by scenarios cluttered with obstacles. Movement(More)
Recently, at the 119th European Study Group with Industry, the Energy Solutions Operator EDP proposed a challenge concerning electricity prices simulation, not only for risk measures purposes but also for scenario analysis in terms of pricing and strategy. The main purpose was short-term Electricity Price Forecasting (EPF). This analysis is contextualized(More)
