Short Team Description: 
The Ursus team is a multidisciplinar group of students, academics and robotics enthusiasts from different universities that work together in designing, building and programming intelligent service and social robots. Our latest platform is Ursus, a two-arm mobile manipulator designed and built by our team that can be acquired commercially. We have also developed a component-oriented, distributed robotics framework called RoboComp that is used as the underlying software to build, integrate, maintain and deploy all algorithms and functional parts running in the robots. Finally, our team is currently working on a cognitive multimodal HRI-oriented architecture called RoboCog that integrates deliberative planning with reactive and opportunistic behaviors using a rich representation of the internal and external worlds of the robot.
