Mobile robots are nowadays capable of navigating in a semi-structured environment, either alone or in formations. Dealing with mobile obstacles, e.g. persons, in everyday environments poses additional challenges which are being addressed by the research community. This paper presents an experiment with a set of robots -acting as a swarm- and one person. The(More)

This paper describes how the use of panoramic cameras can dramatically simplify safety issues for a robot arm moving in close proximity to human beings, since they can simultaneously observe a 360deg field of view. We present in this context an approach to visual servoing in which both the manipulator as well as any other moving object are tracked.(More)
The present paper describes the architecture of an Internet Tele-Laboratory that allows students and researchers to program remotely several heterogeneous robots in a synchronized manner. The paper focuses on how this remote programming enabled the design of an external user interface running on Mobile devices, that has the particularity of providing(More)
A practical solution based on multi-agent protocols for the development of real-world multi-robot applications is presented. FIPA standard protocols implemented by the JADE library provide the standard functionality for a number of tasks. Robot behaviors are built upon the player middleware. Such components provide off-the-shelf tools which allow a(More)
