tesis-david-valiente

The PhD student David Valiente defended his doctoral thesis entitled “View-based SLAM in the 2-1 / 2D omnidirectional images With space and feature point information”, on October 3th, 2016.

The main contribution achieved in this thesis has been a new visual map approach consisting of a reduced set of omnidirectional images within the problem of SLAM in mobile robotics, with application in navigation and exploration tasks.

This thesis has been developed under the supervision of Dr. Oscar Reinoso and Dr. Arturo Gil. and it has been presented in the form of International Doctorate, since David Valiente stayed at the University of Technology of Sydney (Australia), as part of his Doctoral studies.

Aida Sánchez Meroño defends her PhD Thesis “Slow and fast light in multiple-beam interferometers, mono- and multi-layer systems”


Tesis Aida SánchezAida Sánchez Meroño succesfully defended her PhD Thesis entitled “Slow and fast light in multiple-beam interferometers, mono- and multi-layer systems” on March 26th, 2015. The thesis received the maximum mark (excellent Cum Laude), and it has been supervised by Dr. María del Mar Sánchez, from the Departament of Applied Physics and Computer Science, and Dr. Julia Arias, from the Departament of Materials Science, Optics & Electronic Technology. It has been developed at the Laboratory of Optical and Optoelectronic Technology.

The work deals with the theorethical and experimental study of various photonics systems for the generation of slow and fast light, with potential application in sensing and high resolution interferometry. The results have been published in four papers published in journals from the first JCR quartile like Applied Physics Letters, IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics and Physical Review A.

Ricardo Morales Vidal defended his PhD Thesis “Design and Control of Robotic Devices for Early Administration of Neuro-Rehabilitation Therapies”


Tesis Ricardo MoralesRicardo Morales Vidal successfully defended his PhD Thesis “Design and Control of Robotic Devices for Early Administration of Neuro-Rehabilitation Therapies” on February 26th 2014. The thesis, directed by Dr. Nicolas Manuel García Aracil and Dr. José María Sabater Navarro, was realized in the Medical Robotics Unit of Biomedical Neuroengineering Research Group. In this work, a new robotic device based on pneumatic technology for the early delivering of rehabilitation therapies was presented. Moreover, a new robotic platform was developed and novel control techniques to maximize the motivation and participation of the patient during the course of therapy depending on his/her physiological state estimation and different parameters that measure his/her performance during therapy were designed and tested.

Francisco Javier Badesa defends his PhD Thesis “Multimodal Interface and Bio-cooperative Control for Robot-Aided Neuro-Rehabilitation Systems”


Tesis Badesa SmallFrancisco Javier Badesa successfully defended his PhD Thesis “Multimodal Interface and Bio-cooperative Control for Robot-Aided Neuro-Rehabilitation Systems” on January 24th 2014. The thesis, directed by Dr. Nicholas Manuel García Aracil and Dr. José María Sabater Navarro, was realized in the Robotics and Virtual Reality Research Laboratory (VR2). The thesis developed a new robotic system for assisted neuro-rehabilitation actuated by pneumatic technology, focused on the upper limb rehabilitation in patients with hemiparesis due to stroke. The thesis also investigated the design and implementation of a control system that uses information from several physiological signals in order to automatically modify the difficulty level of the robotic rehabilitation tasks.

Alberto Rodriguez-Mayol defended his PhD Thesis “Reputation Techniques for Multi-hop Mobile Ad-hoc Networks”


Tesis Alberto Rodrigiuez MayolAlberto Rodriguez-Mayol defended his PhD Thesis “Reputation Techniques for Multi-hop Mobile Ad-hoc Networks” on July 24th 2013. The thesis, directed by Prof. Javier Gozalvez, was realized in the Ubiquitous Wireless Communications Research (Uwicore) Laboratory. The thesis developed novel cooperation mechanisms for mobile ad-hoc networks and multi-hop cellular networks. The mechanisms were designed to accurately detect the cooperation of nodes in the relaying of packets. The thesis also investigated the use of the cellular network infrastructure to improve the cooperation detection process and accuracy in the case of mobile networks
