Projects from Barcelona

Time: Tuesday, 11:00 – 13:00 Uhr – ONLINE ONLY

Speaker: Alícia López and students – ICCIC Barcelona

Age of participants: intermediate level

Short description: A group of students from the Baccalaureate research project present their work. There are group jobs and individual jobs. .- 3S Technology: Miriam and Aina wanted to provide solutions to blind people who, in this pandemic, had more difficult mobility. They have engineered and designed a device that guarantees the safety distance. .-Snicht goes to antartica: This work is especially interesting. It takes up the investigations of a previous work and extends it and uses it for the conservation of ecosystems that are difficult to access for humans. The first project was intended to design a robot governed from a map that it does itself with SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping). On the other hand, the map will also be used for locating people that are going to recognize it with a machine learning algorithm (specifically a quantized version of the MobileNetSSD model running on TensorFlow Lite with some modifications to better suit our goals). For accomplishing all these objectives, they are using different technological devices connected amongst them with ROS. .- Shaking hands over seas: Here the boys have designed a robotic arm capable of replicating their movements from a distance. Their goal is to reach out to the other side of the ocean. .-IA Ingenuity: This project is linked to the Snicht goes to antartica. Like the Ingenuity on Mars, this device intends to take geolocated aerial images of an area to be able to give air support to the Snicht. .-Bioengineering: In this work, Helana has worked with different hospitals in Barcelona, including the Hospital Clínic and the Hospital d’Vall d’Heron in order to answer this question: Is the genomic treatment of cancer the future to fight against the disease?
