IRS (Interactive & Robotic Systems) is a research group officially created in 2009 (www.irs.uji.es) but bearing in mind that the coordinator and some of their members come from the Robotic Intelligence Lab, started in 1991, and the Multimedia Research Group, originated in 1994.
The IRS Lab has a strong background in service robotics and has been very active in different topics of robotics, with all their members sharing a common interest: reasoning about space, manipulation, perception and motion in the framework of robotic systems and keeping an applied viewpoint always in mind.
In the last couple of years, IRS Lab has been involved in the development of manipulation skills for underwater robots, particularly in the requirements and control of underwater manipulators. Complementing this research, an important contribution has been done in the human robot interaction context. In fact, a multimodal user interface and a 3D simulator have been developed to assist the user in the specification of underwater intervention missions.
