Sobre

Sou licenciado em Engenharia Electrotécnica pela Universidade do Porto (1985, opção de Sistemas Digitais e Computadores). Desde 1996, sou responsável por projetos de Investigação & Desenvolvimento Tecnológicos no Centro de Engenharia de Sistemas de Empresariais (CESE) do INESC TEC. Sistemas de Informação, Gestão de Operações, Apoio à Decisão e Redes Colaborativas são os meus principais domínios de ação. Neste contexto, participei em vários projetos nacionais e europeus de investigação aplicada, em parceria com outras instituições de investigação, centros tecnológicos, empresas tecnológicas e industriais, em vários setores de atividades, entre os quais saliento o têxtil, vestuário e calçado e a indústria automóvel. Destaco a participação nos seguintes projetos europeus:  AC/DC “Automotive Chassis Development for 5-Days-Cars”, eBiz-TCF “Harmonising e-Business processes and data exchanges for SMEs in the textile/clothing and footwear sectors in the Single Market”, STAMINA “Sustainable and reliable robotics for part handling in manufacturing automation”. Para além do desenvolvimento de protótipos de software, participei na escrita de artigos de índole científica em revistas, conferências e capítulos de livros.

Abstract
This paper proposes a logistic planner with supplementary 3D spatial representations to enhance and interact with traditional logistic systems on the context of mobile manipulators performing internal logistics operations. By defining a hierarchical structure, the logistic world model, as the central entity synchronized between multiple system components, the reliability and accuracy of the logistic system is strengthened. The proposed approach aims at implementing a robust and intuitive solution for the set-up of mobile manipulator based logistic systems. The logistic planner includes a web based interface for fast setup of the warehouse layout based on robot sensing, as well as the definition of missions for the fleet of robotic systems. © Springer International Publishing AG 2018.

Abstract
This paper demonstrates the potential benefits of the integration of robot based sensing and Enterprise Information Systems extended with information about the geometric location and volumetric information of the parts contained in logistic supermarkets. The comparison of this extended world model with hierarchical spatial representations produced by a fleet of robots traversing the logistic supermarket corridors enables the continuous assessment of inconsistencies between reality, i.e., the spatial representations collected from online 3D data, and the modelled information, i.e., the world model. Results show that it is possible to detect inconsistencies reliably and in real time. The proposed approach contributes to the development of more robust and effective Enterprise Information Systems. © 2017 The Society of Manufacturing Engineers

Abstract
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are a new generation of systems that integrate computation and physical processes interacting with humans in different ways. Integrated networks of computers, sensors and similar technologies monitor and control the physical processes, reporting relevant data to planners and decision-makers, and vice versa. By means of case research, this paper analyzes the implementation of cyber-physical systems aiming at lead-time reduction in two manufacturing contexts, namely footwear and natural cork stoppers. The results of this research contribute to literature and practice with a conceptual framework for the implementation of cyber-physical systems and the discussion of the challenges of implementing this technology.

ADVANCES IN COOPERATIVE ROBOTICS

Abstract
Cognitive robots have started to find their way into manufacturing halls. However, the full potential of these robots can only be exploited through an integration into the automation pyramid so that the system is able to communicate with the manufacturing execution system (MES). Integrating the robot with the MES allows the robot to get access to manufacturing environment and process data so that it can perform its task without human intervention. This paper describe the mobile robotic manipulator developed in the EU project STAMINA, its has been integrated with an existing MES and its application in a kitting task from the automotive industry.
