UPM Autonomous Systems Laboratory

Máquinas Conscientes @ IRM24

Ricardo Sanz will give a talk on “Conscious Machines” at the Industriales Research Meeting 2024 (IRM24). The talk will summarily describe research activities of the Autonomous Systems Laboratory in the domain of conscious, adaptive, autonomous systems. Get the PDF of the talk here:

CORESENSE 1st Review

We got our first review from the European Commission on November 15, 2023. Everything went smooth and we received very positive feedback and valuable recommendations from the review team to continue our work in the CORESENSE project. Get info, details and public document from the project website: coresense.eu


We have just started the CORESENSE project with a kick-off meeting at the School of Industrial Engineering of UPM (UPM ETSII). We have been working together for two days, understanding each other, clarifying the scope of the work and organizing the first steps in this ambitious project. Universidad Politécnica de Read more…

Bounding Autonomy

In a sense, full autonomy seems to be the central objective of any automatic control systems research program. But, for different reasons, it is not. Let’s analise some of the reasons for this apparent paradox. First, nobody in charge of real production systems want the plants to be fully autonomous because of Read more…

Hello autonomy world!

The Autonomous Systems Laboratory (ASLab) is a research group of UPM focused on the science and technology of autonomy. We investigate architectures and engineering methods for the construction of robust autonomous systems. Autonomy is a technical property of systems that make them capable of sustained provision of a particular service Read more…
