Article
Full-text available
There are physical Human–Robot Interaction (pHRI) applications where the robot has to grab the human body, such as rescue or assistive robotics. Being able to precisely estimate the grasping location when grabbing a human limb is crucial to perform a safe manipulation of the human. Computer vision methods provide pre-grasp information with strong c...
Article
In this letter, we present an autonomous method for the placement of a sensorized wristband to victims in a Search-And-Rescue (SAR) scenario. For this purpose, an all-terrain mobile robot includes a mobile manipulator, which End-Effector (EE) is equipped with a detachable sensorized wristband. The wristband consists of two links with a shared shaft...

Assistive and rehabilitation robotics have gained momentum over the past decade and are expected to progress significantly in the coming years. Although relevant and promising research advances have contributed to these fields, challenges regarding intentional physical contact with humans remain. Despite being a fundamental component of assistive a...
Article
Full-text available
Recent advances in the field of intelligent robotic manipulation pursue providing robotic hands with touch sensitivity. Haptic perception encompasses the sensing modalities encountered in the sense of touch (e.g., tactile and kinesthetic sensations). This letter focuses on multimodal object recognition and proposes analytical and data-driven method...
Article
Full-text available
In physical Human-Robot Interaction (pHRI), forces exerted by humans need to be estimated to accommodate robot commands to human constraints, preferences, and needs. This paper presents a method for the estimation of the interaction forces between a human and a robot using a gripper with proprioceptive sensing. Specifically, we measure forces exert...
Chapter
In this paper, a method for the estimation of the angle of grasping of a human forearm, when grasped by a robot with an underactuated gripper, using proprioceptive information only, is presented. Knowing the angle around the forearm’s axis (i.e. roll angle) is key for the safe manipulation of the human limb and biomedical sensor placement among oth...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, a novel method of active tactile perception based on 3D neural networks and a high-resolution tactile sensor installed on a robot gripper is presented. A haptic exploratory procedure based on robotic palpation is performed to get pressure images at different grasping forces that provide information not only about the external shape o...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The emergence of new robotic technologies such as compliant control and soft robotics, has contributed to safe physical Human-Robot Interaction (pHRI) mainly for assistive applications. However, a robot capable of directly manipulating the human body, which is key for the implementation of autonomous rescue robots, has not been developed so far. In...
Conference Paper
Dentro de los procedimientos de respuesta a emergencias, la Primera Intervención consiste en la toma de contacto con la zona de crisis mediante la recogida de información relevante que permita decidir y organizar la entrada de los equipos de rescate. Las labores de primera intervención constituyen una aplicación significativa de la robótica de resc...
Conference Paper
In this paper, the first device for monitoring casualties including automatic placement with aerial robotic manipulators is presented. The distributed system allows the continuous evaluation of the health status of victims in massive disaster scenarios. The design of the sensor and the communication system is described. The continuous monitoring sy...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
En este artículo se presenta el modelo cinemático de un robot paralelo y la construcción de un prototipo de dos grados de libertad, cuyo objeto es servir como posicionador de instrumentos de cirugía laparoscópica. El robot tiene una configuración en paralelo, con estructura de mecanismo de cinco barras con ejes no paralelos, con dos articulaciones...
