About

I was born in Porto in 1981 and I lived my childhood in my parents home village called S. Paio de Oleiros. After I conclude my high school in technological course of electronics at Escola Dr. Manuel Gomes de Almeida in 1999, I joined ISEP - Higher Institute of Engineering of Porto in Bachelor's degree of Electrical Engineering, branch of Electronics and Computers. In 2001 I joined the Autonomous System Laboratory that just started of research in robotics. In 2007 I concluded the Bachelor's degree and, two years later, at the same institution, I obtained the Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, branch of Autonomous Systems. In 2010 I was invited by ISEP to teach real time operating systems in the Electric Engineering Department (as Invited Assistant). In 2016 I was contracted as a researcher by INESCTEC to work in the Center for Autonomous Systems (CRAS). I'm now working on the H2020 UNEXMIN Project doing research on science and technology in robotics to be applied on flooded mines.

Abstract
This paper addresses a three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of a flooded open pit mine with an autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The ROAZ USV and the Otus UAV were used to provide the underwater bathymetric map and aerial 3D reconstruction based from image data. This work was performed within the context of the European research project VAMOS with the objective of developing robotic tools for efficient underwater mining © 2016 IEEE.

Abstract
This paper addresses the use of heterogeneous sensors for target detection and recognition in maritime environment. An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle payload was assembled using hyperspectral, infrared, electro-optical, AIS and INS information to collect synchronized sensor data with vessel ground-truth position for conducting air and sea trials. The data collected is used to develop automated robust methods for detect and recognize vessels based on their exogenous physical characteristics and their behaviour across time. Data Processing preliminary results are also presented. © 2016 IEEE.
