    abstract = {Developing a simple multimodal interaction game with a 31 dof's mobile manipulator can become a challenging enterprise. A conceptually simple task quickly unfolds into a rather complex ensemble of driver-oriented, framework-based, software-enabled, state-machine controlled mechatronics. In this paper we propose a multimodal interaction game designed to test the initial steps of a cognitive robotics architecture called RoboCog. In the game, a human shows an object to the robot and asks him to touch it with one of his hands. Loki, the robot, searches, gazes, represents and touches the object, then talks and waits for new events. The game goes on until the human player decides to quit. In this paper we describe the steps taken to achieve this goal, analyzing the decisions made in terms of architectural choices and describing how the sequential control of multimodal resources was built. To conclude, several snapshots of the game are presented and commented along with video material of Loki playing with a volunteer.},

    abstract = {The complexity of the applications in which robots are being used does not stop growing. Different solutions such as sophisticated control architectures have been proposed in order to deal with complexity in robot control. These solutions make robotic systems more robust, scalable and easier to distribute, understand and monitor. However, it is still not clear how to cope with the complexity of the interaction dynamics that underlie the perception of the environment. With this issue in mind this paper presents the concept of cognitive graph grammar and two algorithms that make use of it. Cognitive graph grammars are a grammar-based theoretical framework designed to support cognitive perception and, especially, the active nature of perception. They provide a means to describe how graph- based models can be generated and the behaviors to execute depending on the perceptual context. This is done in such a way that the information provided using this formalism can be used for different perceptive purposes at the same time, such as to link action and perception or to diminish perceptive errors. The paper also describes an experiment in which a cognitive graph grammar is used in an autonomous robot in order to efficiently model an environment made of rectangular rooms with obstacles},

These new systems are able to self-reconfigure and adapt autonomously. In 1 order to provide an open framework for collaboration between universities, research centres and the Administration, ACROSS will develop Open Source Services available to everybody.

We build on this set to design and test a pallet picking task in which the robot has to locate, approach, obtain the pose and, finally, pick up the target. The only sensorial information available to the robot is its binocular vision system and its internal odometry. To carry out this task we have equipped a RobEx robot with a 1 dof forklift and a 4 dof's binocular head.

Studies of attentional mechanisms in biological vision have inspired many computational models (Tsotsos et al., 1995; Itti {\{}{\&}{\}} Koch, 2000; Frintrop et al., 2005; Torralba et al., 2006; Navalpakkan {\{}{\&}{\}} Itti, 2006). Most of them follow the assumption of limited capacity associated to the role of attention from psychological proposals (Broadbent, 1958; Laberge, 1995). These theories hypothesize that the visual system has limited processing capacity and that attention acts as a filter selecting the information that should be processed. This assumption has been criticized by many authors who affirm that the human perceptual system processing capacity is enormous (Neumann et al., 1986; Allport, 1987). From this point of view, a stage selecting the information to be processed is not needed. Instead, they claim the role of attention from the perspective of selection for action (Allport, 1987). According to this new conception, the function of attention is to avoid behavioural disorganization by selecting the appropriate information to drive task execution. Such a notion of attention is very interesting in robotics, where the aim is to build autonomous robots that interact with complex environments, keeping multiple behavioural objectives. Attentional selection for action can guide robot behaviours by focusing on relevant visual targets while avoiding distracting elements. Moreover, it can be conceived as a coordination mechanism, since stimuli selection allows serializing the actions of, potentially, multiple active behaviours.},

    abstract = {In this paper a visual overt attention mechanism is presented. It builds and keeps updated a scene representation of all the relevant objects around a robot, specially if they are far away of each other and do not lie in the same camera image. The algorithm chooses the next fixation point for a monocular camera, which is mounted over a pantilt unit. Our approach is based on two related dynamics: liveliness and saliency. The liveliness of each relevant object diminishes in time but increases with new observations of such object. The position of each valid object is a possible fixation point for the camera. The saliency of each fixation point increases in time but is reset after the camera visit such location. Real experiments with a pioneer robot endowed with a firewire camera on a pantilt unit are displayed},

    abstract = {This paper is focused on real-time algorithms for estimating dense 3D structure and camera motion from images sequence. Within this approach a practical method is proposed which can retrieve metric reconstruction from continuous image sequences obtained with uncalibrated cameras. Our approach can be divided in two main stages. First, the projection matrices between non-differential camera displacement are estimated, it's known this process relies on correct estimations of matched points. In order to efficiently deal with correspondence searches, a continuous differential tracking of interest points is accomplished by a real-time parameter estimation procedure. Making use of those projection matrices, a self-calibration and camera ego-motion estimation are carried out. Secondly, a dense point reconstruction is performed combining optical flow constraint with the projective model of a moving camera that has been determined in previous stage. In both stages no correspondence searches are found in an explicit way, alternatively corresponding point searches are guided by a continuous tracking of interest points and optical flow constraint. Additionally, we implement a multi-resolution approach to avoid failures in employing differential models such as optical flow constraint, that is the case of large image displacements},
