BioRobotics Laboratory

“”Bio-Robotics can be defined as the intersection of robotics and biology

Understand biology to build robots, build robots to understand the biology.”

Pumas OPL (Justina Robot )

Justina is a service robot designed for operation in domestic environments. It’s friendly and smart design eases the interaction with humans and their environment, while taking advantage of low-cost components available in the market.

Justina is part of the initiative of getting robots closer to people to enhance the quality of life. However, the primary goal of the project is to encourage and promote science and engineering among students, giving them the opportunity to apply their knowledge in real-world applications using high-end technology.

Justina's Virtual Model

We recently started working with Justina’s virtual model, focusing mainly on executing the most basic tasks that the real robot performs.

Virtual Justina has the following skills:

  • Mapping

  • Path planning

  • Obstacle avoidance

  • Speech recognition

  • Speech generation

  • Object recognition

  • Object manipulation

  • Face recognition
