The Robotic Intelligence Laboratory at Universitat Jaume I (UJI) was established in 1991. Its staff includes three professors, three assistant professors and two postdoscs. Its mission is to conduct research in the cognitive aspects of robotics, or robotic intelligence, understood as embodied intelligence in robotic systems that behave in the real world. From the start the focus has been in cognitive manipulation by means of sensorimotor coordination of robotic arms, hands and perceptual systems, such as our participation in projects FP7 EYESHOTS and FP7 GRASP. Also, in the last years collective intelligence is also an interest, such as in FP6 GUARDIANS Cognitive Systems Project in which we participate with a team of 8 mobile robots in our lab. Some of our perceptual manipulation systems have had a significant impact such as the UJI Librarian Robot (featured in the BBC online and IEEE ICRA'05 video proc.), the UJI On-line Robot, or the UJI Service Robot (selected in the IROS'06 video proc.). The lab was a founding contractual member of EURON, the European Robotics Network of Excellence. The lab is also well known in Europe for the organization of 8 consecutive summer schools on robotics (2001-08) co-funded by EURON.

The team has a long experience in many relevant areas such as spatial cognition and motion planning, knowledge modelling, active learning from perception and experience in manipulation and grasping (including joint work with A. Fagg at the Univ. of Massachusetts: Fagg is the author of the FARS model for grasping with Arbib, Rizzolatti and Sakata), visuomotor coordination, visually-guided grasping, task-oriented grasping and vision-force coordination, control architectures for force-motor coordination, tactile perception for manipulation, perceptual grounding, cognitive models for manipulation and vision for manipulation (including joint work with M. Goodale, pioneer in findings about the dual visual streams in the cortex), benchmarks and performance evaluation in robotics research, and robots in the web.
