    abstract = {There is currently a large amount of robotics software using the component-oriented programming paradigm. However, the rapid growth in number and complexity of components may compromise the scalability and the whole lifecycle of robotics software systems. Model-Driven Engineering can be used to mitigate these problems. This paper describes how using Domain-Specific Languages to generate and describe critical parts of robotic systems helps developers to perform component managerial tasks such as component creation, modification, monitoring and deployment. Four different DSLs are proposed in this paper: i) CDSL for specifying the structure of the components, ii) IDSL for the description of their interfaces, iii) DDSL for describing the deployment process of component networks and iv) PDSL to define and configure component parameters. Their benefits have been demonstrated after their implementation in RoboComp, a general-purpose and component-based robotics framework. Examples of the usage of these DSLs are shown along with experiments that demonstrate the benefits they bring to the lifecycle of the components.},

    abstract = {For mobile robots, the problem of interaction with simple objects in a semi-controlled environment is a rich source of challenging situations. In this paper we present a real experiment dealing with the design of a sequential task and its implications in the active nature of the perceptual process involved. In order to set up this experiment, it is required a non trivial set of functioning senso-motor behaviours. 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. We present the conceptual and computational models and the results of the initial experiments in a real setup.},
