About

I was born in Porto, in January 1995. I graduated with a MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering (major in Automation, specialization in Robotics and Systems) from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, in 2017. I'm always looking forward to learn new things, and I'm passionate mobile soccer robots. My fields of interest are robotics, software development and computer vision.

Abstract
Object tracking in a moving frame is becoming a common requirement in a lot of mobile robotic applications, such as search and rescue, monitoring and surveillance, and even in some scientific applications, such as robotic soccer. In all these applications, the robots must be capable of estimating the target position and, sometimes, velocity on their own. Depending on the application and on the current scene situation, the estimates must be more or less accurate, depending on the robot intention to interact with the target, whether to catch it, follow it, etc. The problem is that a robot moves along the working area, having some uncertainty in its pose estimation. This paper proposes an approach based on a Kalman Filter to estimate the object position and velocity, regardless the robot pose. As a testbed, a Middle-Size League soccer robot tracking a moving ball example will be used. This approach allows the agent to follow and interact with a moving object, even if its localization is not available. © Springer International Publishing AG 2018.
