Facial gesture recognition is one of the main topics in HRI. We have developed a novel algorithm who allows to detect emotional states, like happiness, sadness or emotionless. A humanoid robot is able to detect these states with a ratio of success of 83% and interact in consequence. We use Active Appearance Models (AAMs) to determinate face features and(More)
In this paper, we present a novel methodology to obtain imitative and innovative postural movements in a humanoid based on human demonstrations in a di®erent kinematic scale. We collected motion data from a group of human participants standing up from a chair. Modeling the human as an actuated 3-link kinematic chain, and by de ̄ning a multi-objective reward(More)
Our goal is to study collaborative working environments in which human and robotic agents can work together in the achievement of different tasks. The introduction of robots in the field of space applications becomes really useful when performing tasks that are too dangerous, too difficult or even impossible for humans. In this paper we present a(More)

The aim of this work is to model and simulate the humanoid robot HOAP-3 in the OpenHRP3 platform. Our purpose is to create a virtual model of the robot so that different motions and tasks can be tested in different environments. This will be the first step before testing the motion patterns in the real HOAP-3. We use the OpenHRP3 platform for the creation(More)
We have studied 1,939 healthy children of both sexes (1.003 boys and 936 girls), aged from 4 to 18 years, of the city of Fuenlabrada (Madrid). The following parameters were determined: blood pressure, weight, height, triccipital folds, the rohrer index, total cholesterol, triglycerides, lipoproteins, blood sugar and uric acid. The results of the blood(More)
