How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Fernando Ropero is a PhD Student in Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the University of Alcalá (UAH) , Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, Spain. He received the B.Sc. Computer Science degree and the M.Sc. degree in space science & technology from the University of Alcalá, in 2015 and 2016, respectively. He is member of the Intelligent Systems Group at UAH, where he has conducted his research since 2015. His research is focused on autonomous multi-robot cooperation, studying cooperation paradigms where robots can deploy collective intelligent behaviours. His main research interests are multi-robot coordination and high-level planning, with particular emphasis in path planning and optimization methods. Web: https://fropero.com/
The latest progresses in medicine are helping people live longer and better. An ageing population is a sign of a developed society with an advanced health care system. Improved life expectancy should be welcomed as a major achievement, but it should not cause a financial or social burden. In this scenario, it is critical to support older and handic...
Cooperation in heterogeneous robotics teams is getting attention from multiple areas, such as surveillance, search and rescue, or space exploration. Heterogeneous robots teams can exploit advantages of each robotic platform, allowing us to operate simultaneously on-ground, air and in water environments, which is usually not suitable for homogeneous...
In this paper, we consider the scenario of exploring a planetary surface with a system formed by an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV). The goal is to reach a set of target points minimizing the travelling distance. Some expected key problems in planetary explorations are the UGVs functionality constraints to reach s...
Autonomous control in robotics hold promising solutions for a broad number of applications. However, autonomous controllers require highly expertise on heterogeneous technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence Planning & Scheduling, behaviour modelling, intelligent execution and the hardware to control. Connecting these technologies entails sever...
Over the last decades the population in developed countries is becoming increasingly older, while the life expectancy is growing supported on medical advances. In despite of such progress, how to support older adults to continue living independently and retaining their current lifestyle is becoming a social problem. Through the careful placement of...
