Article
Full-text available
In this work we propose a new biophysical computational model of brain regions relevant to Parkinson’s Disease (PD) based on local field potential data collected from the brain of marmoset monkeys. PD is a neurodegenerative disorder, linked to the death of dopaminergic neurons at the substantia nigra pars compacta, which affects the normal dynamics...

Full-text available
In this work, we present the first steps toward the creation of a new neurorobotics model of Parkinson's Disease (PD) that embeds, for the first time in a real robot, a well-established computational model of PD. PD mostly affects the modulation of movement in humans. The number of people suffering from this neurodegenerative disease is set to doub...
Article
Full-text available
Modeling is widely used in biomedical research to gain insights into pathophysiology and treatment of neurological disorders but existing models, such as animal models and computational models, are limited in generalizability to humans and are restricted in the scope of possible experiments. Robotics offers a potential complementary modeling platfo...
Article
This paper describes the INSIDE system, a networked robot system designed to allow the use of mobile robots as active players in the therapy of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). While a significant volume of work has explored the impact of robots in ASD therapy, most such work comprises remotely operated robots and/or well-structured i...

Full-text available
Exploration of unknown environments using autonomous mobile robots is essential in various scenarios such as, for instance, search and rescue missions following natural disasters. The task consists essentially in transversing the environment to build a complete and accurate map of it, and different applications may demand different exploration stra...

In this paper we present the interactive consoles deployed on an assistive scenario with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). These interfaces were developed in order to provide support to the therapists during the therapy sessions in a hospital allowing the operators to better analyze the procedure from outside and intervene wh...

This paper describes the strategy of Y-Rescue team to the RoboCup Rescue 2015 Agent & Multi-agent challenge competition. For the agent competition, our approach relies on field agents capable of individual decision making, relegating the center agents to an informa-tional role. Our main contributions are the scheme for prediction of fire evolution...

This research project aims to develop a parametrized system to de-tect, in video, a airfield of an airport. In this implementation it was used a edge detection filter, using Canny algorithm, in a Region of Interest (ROI) and then it was developed a line detection filter, using the detected edges, using the Hough Transformation. The system presented...

PBL (Problem Based Learning) é uma estratégia educacional centrada no aluno, cuja apresentação dos problemas antecede a exposição de conteúdos. Neste contexto, os problemas são, portanto, um dos principais elementos da PBL. Este artigo descreve o Problem Database Manager (PDM), um sistema Web desenvolvido para oferecer suporte à elaboração e compar...

PBL (Problem Based Learning) is an educational strategy focused on the students. On the PBL, the problems are presented before the content presentation. Problems are a one of the principal PBL component. This article describes PBL Manager, a web system designed to support the development and sharing of problems. It presents the context for the emer...
