The UJI Online Robot: An Education and Training Experience

  title={The UJI Online Robot: An Education and Training Experience},
  author={Roque Mar{\'i}n and Pedro J. Sanz and Angel Pascual del Pobil},
  journal={Autonomous Robots},
This paper describes a complete vision-based online robot system that allows controlling both an educational and an industrial robot via web. [...] Key Method This high level interaction is possible thanks to some built-in modules for performing basic tasks such as automatic object recognition, image processing, autonomous grasp determination and speech recognition. Finally, the system has been tested by means of an application in the Education and Training domain. One hundred undergraduate students have been…Expand
