I was born in 1979 in Madrid, Spain and I have been working in robotics since 1997 when I saw some images from the M.I.T. and the Robotic Institute at the C.M.U., robotics was too cool to let it pass by. During my stay at the Pontificia Universidad of Salamanca I cooperated in a robotics competition project with Professor Carlos Soria (on 1999). I obtained my degree on computer science in September 2002. I am freelance since January 2003. I was awarded the first prize in national robotics competition HISPABOT in 2003 (robot skill category with robot "Bipedo RR"). That year I was invited by Julio Pastor to go to the EUROBOT competition in France as a Speaker and I was offered the great opportunity of collaborating with the Eurobot organisation committee. On July 2003 the ROBOCUP competition took place in Padova (Italy) and I decided to go there to share comments and opinions with ROBOCUP teams from all around the world. In August 2003 I started working at RoboticSpot.com here in Spain to provide professional services and products related with autonomous robotics and software. In 2004 I went to Lisboa (Robocup 2004) as visitor and to Valladolid (Robolid 2004) as speaker. That was the last conference in robotics I lectured, university is cool, but looks like commercial projects are more appropiate to my kind of profile. During the years 2003-2007 my team at RoboticSpot has been running several projects: some commercial, some for pure research, but mainly we have been specializing in assuring technical feasibility on new Service Robotics prototypes and products. On 2007 Artifact Consulting S.L. was founded in order to provide services in a more "corporative" fashion using words like "sinergy" and "empathy"... 2008 and 2009 have been nice years working between the Software Factory, classes lectured to companies about java, mobility and robotics and the workshop, a time for patents, proyects, corporate investment (in times of crisis, yep), and much fun.

Yet working in Robotics and J2EE... an entertaining and exciting combination so far :).
We are now running several projects: the Humanoid Group is working in a project, the InfoSpot Group is publishing content from time to time and we are studying a couple of commercial projects that could be marketed in 2007 or 2008... who knows, maybe the next Robotic-hit is in the RoboticSpot workshop (talking about optimistic team projects) :D.
At last we recovered our english section... we had to wait for the summer in order to get enought time, please have a look at it and don't hesitate to contact us if you fell like it at email@example.com:
Working in a project related with Humanoid Robotics in the Humanoid Group at the RoboticSpot Robotics Team.
