Primeros meses en CTAG y PSA

There are no translations available.

Durante mis primeros meses en CTAG - Centro Tecnológico de Automoción de Galicia, estoy participando en un proyecto para PSA Peugeot Citroën en el marco de la nuevos modelos M3/M4 ya conocidos como Peugeot 301 y Citroën C-Élysée. La confidencialidad del mismo no permite contar gran cosa, pero evidentemente la visión artificial es parte esencial de la colaboración.

El proyecto ha provocado el contacto continuo con profesionales de PSA Vigo y de los centros PSA de Vélizy y Rennes. En cierto modo ha sido como trabajar en Europa sin salir de casa. Desde aquí quiero agradecer a todo el personal involucrado su cercanía y profesionalidad. Sin duda esta experiencia será muy valiosa en los proyectos a desarrollar en el futuro más próximo.

 

 

Road to CTAG

In Novembre 21, I will start a new job in the Centro Tecnológico de Automoción de Galicia (CTAG). My tasks will be related to R&D projects in computer vision, artificial intelligence and software development.

So I finish a almost-2-year stage in the Laboratorio de Informática Aplicada (LIA) from the Universidade de Vigo. It is a good moment to say thank you to Dr. Arno Formella, Dr. Francisco Javier Rodríguez Martínez, Dr. Pilar Carrión, and Encarnación González, for believing in me. Thanks also to my laboratory mates this time: Kote, Álex, Federico, Víctor, Mathías, Leo, Adrián, Breogán, Mac, Mario, Juan, Lorena, Cástor y Loxo, and the rest of researchers from the ESEI, que no nombro para no dejar a ninguno en el camino. It has been a honour to work with you.

See you at CTAG  ;)

 

Attending ICIAP 2011

Last conference this year. This time I've attended the 16th International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP 2011), held in Ravenna (Italy), from 14 to 16 September 2011. It was a poster participation again, summarizing the article "Common scab detection on potatoes using an infrared hyperspectral imaging system".

After a fast visit to Bologna, I've spent some days in Ravenna, in my third stay in Italy. I've also spent some time with Brais Cancela, from Varpa group of the Universidade da Coruña, that helped to make everything more fun.

 

Attending CAIP 2011

In August I've attended the 14th International Conference on Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns (CAIP 2011), held in Sevilla (Spain), from 29 to 31 August 2011, to present the poster related to the article "Non-destructive detection of hollow heart in potatoes using hyperspectral imaging". Non only the poster was presented, but also a  1 minute highlight presentation (picture).

It was a conference with a lot of Spanish people, held in the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Informática of the Universidad de Sevilla. I discussed with the assistants about my research, and I have the luck of having a long talk with Dr. Pedro Real, chair of the conference, and Aura Hernàndez, from CVC. Thanks also to the organization committee for their attention.

 

Attendance to ICME 2011

After presenting my PhD dissertation, I've attended the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME 2011), that has been celebrated at Universitat Ramon Llull - La Salle in Barcelona from 11 to 15 July 2011. I've presented a poster that summarizes the publication "Rapid Multi-Spectral Systems Design using a Hyperspectral Benchmarking Framework".

In this conference I've spent some time with my colleague Esteban Vázquez and Hugo García-Pardo, from Gradiant, as well as with Gabriel Domínguez, from the Tecnologías de la Señal group from Universidade de Vigo. The conference has been a good chance to interchange ideas with other researchers, and attend very interesting panels and tutorials, like the one presented by Dr. Bernd Girod about computer vision and augmented reality in mobile phones (in the left picture).

 

Impact in the mass media of my PhD dissertation

Some newspapers and blogs have informed about the presentation of my PhD dissertation. Following I list some of these news:

And thank you everybody again!

 

Presentation of my PhD dissertation

In July 7, 2011, I've presented my PhD dissertation called "Procesamiento de imagen y visión hiperespectral para el control de calidad en la industria de la patata (Image processing and hyperspectral imaging for quality control in the potato industry)", and with my PhD advisers, Dr. Arno Formella and Dr. Pilar Carrión, as well as partners and friends.

The Thesis committee was composed by Dr. Filiberto Pla (Universitat Jaume I), Dr. Pablo García (Universidad de Extremadura), Dr. Pedro Villar (Universidad de Granada), Dr. Eva Cernadas (Universidade de Santiago de Compostela) and Dr. María José Lado (Universidade de Vigo). After the presentation and some questions, the committee assigned me the highest qualification, Sobresaliente Cum Laude.

Thank you everbody!

 

NACCE: Núcleo de apoyo a la competitividad y a la creación de empresas TIC

There are no translations available.

NACCE: Núcleo de apoyo a la competitividad y a la creación de empresas TIC, es un proyecto financiado por la convocatoria POCTEP, liderado por la Xunta de Galicia (DX Promoción do Emprego), y en el que participa, entre otros, la Escola Superior de Enxeñería Informática de la Universidade de Vigo, en el que he comenzado a trabajar en este mes de junio. Sus objetivos son, entre otros, proporcionar formación y apoyo a emprendedores y PYMES TIC en materia de colaboración, internacionalización, creación de empresas y puesta en marcha de nuevas líneas de negocio.

En el proyecto colaboran, además: AGESTIC (Asociación Gallega de Empresas TIC), la Cámara de Comercio de Vigo, la Associaçâo Empresarial AIMINHO de Braga y el CCG (Centro de Computação Gráfica, Investigação & Desenvolvimento Tecnológico) de Guimarâes (en la imagen).

 

CAIP 2011 and ICIAP 2011

Two new contributions in 2011, both related with my PhD dissertation. The first one, titled Non-destructive detection of hollow heart in potatoes using hyperspectral imaging, will be presented at the conference 14th International Conference on Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns (CAIP 2011), to be held in Sevilla (Spain), from 29 to 31 August 2011. Later, ir will be published in the journal Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

On the other hand, Common scab detection on potatoes using an infrared hyperspectral imaging system will be presented at the 16th International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP 2011), to be held in Ravenna (Italy), from 14 to 16 September 2011. It will be also published in LNCS.

In both contributions I've had the collaboration of my PhD advisers, Arno Formella and Pilar Carrión, so as my colleagues Esteban Vázquez from GRADIANT and Manuel Fernández Delgado from the USC. More information available in the Publications section.
