Project Hands-Free presented at Ubiquitous Robotics 2020

Hands-Free is a ROS-based software to teleoperate a robot with the user hand. The skeleton of the hand is extracted by using OpenPose and the position of the user’s index finger in the user workspace is mapped to the corresponding robot position in the robot workspace.

The project is available on GitHub and the paper has been published in the Ubiquitous Robotics 2020 virtual conference proceedings.

Vis4Mechs at the Smart Vision Forum 2019

Vis4Mechs group has been invited to the first Smart Vision Forum held in Bologna, June 25th 2019. The event was a half-conference half-industrial showcase to bring together vision and automation industries, students of both high schools and Universities and academical researchers.

Simone, Cristina and a small group of students of the 3D Vision course and of other PhD programs, as well as Massimiliano and Luca of the Mechanical and Thermal Measurments group, attended the event.

We also found Giordano and Rossano, two former students of the group who graduated in October 2018!
