Welcome / Bienvenid@


Welcome to my blog.

My name is Juan Jesús Roldán Gómez. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Automation and Robotics (UPM-CSIC). I got a PhD in Automation and Robotics from the Technical University of Madrid (2014-2018). Previously, I studied Bsc+MSc in Industrial Engineering with specialization in Automation and Electronics (2006-2012) and MSc in Automation and Robotics (2013-2014) at the same university. I have taken part in robotics projects with SENER and Airbus Defence and Space, as well as I have performed a research stay at the University of Luxembourg. During the last five years, I have researched about security systems for aerial robots, surveillance with teams of ground robots and application of robots to agriculture. Currently, I am interested in multi-robot adaptive and immersive interfaces and robot swarms for monitoring cities, as well as in data mining and machine learning techniques.

If you are interested in my work, please send me an email:


Until next time!

Bienvenid@ a mi blog.

Mi nombre es Juan Jesús Roldán Gómez. Soy un investigador postdoctoral en el Centro de Automática y Robótica (UPM-CSIC). Hice el doctorado en Automática y Robótica en la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (2014-2018). Anteriormente, estudié Ingeniería Industrial con especialidad en Automática y Electrónica (2006-2012) y Máster en Automática y Robótica (2013-2014) en la misma universidad. He participado en proyectos de robótica con SENER y Airbus Defence & Space y también he realizado una estancia de investigación en la Universidad de Luxemburgo. Durante los últimos cinco años, he investigado sobre sistemas de seguridad para robots aéreos, vigilancia con equipos de robots terrestres y aplicación de robots en agricultura. Actualmente, estoy interesado en las interfaces adaptativas e inmersivas para flotas de robots y el uso de enjambres de robots para monitorizar ciudades, así como en aprender más sobre técnicas de minería de datos y aprendizaje automático.

IROS 2018: IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems

This week I have been at the IROS 2018 (IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems) that has been held in Madrid. There have been five days of workshops, presentations, exhibitions and competitions with the robots as protagonists. The figures of this conference have set a new record in this kind of events: more than 4,000 attendees from 62 countries around the world, presenting 1,200 papers and participating in 124 sessions.


I have the opportunity to present our work "Should we Compete or Should we Cooperate? Applying Game Theory to Task Allocation in Drone Swarms" in the "Swarm and Multi-Robots" session of the conference. The format was very dynamic: a 3 minutes presentation, which you can see below, and a  30 minutes poster discussion.
