  • Lidar inversion of atmospheric backscatter and extinction-to-backscatter ratios by use of a Kalman filter 

    Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Soriano Ortiz, Cecilia; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Baldasano Recio, José María (OPTICAL SOC AMER, 1999-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A first inversion of the backscatter profile and extinction-to-backscatter ratio from pulsed elastic-backscatter lidar returns is treated by means of an extended Kalman filter (EKF). The EKF approach enables one to overcome ...

  • Online identification of time varying parameters in PEM fuel cells 

    Kunusch, Cristian (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This article tackles some ideas about parameters identification in the anode line of a typical PEM fuel cell test station. The approach is focused in the nonlinear model structure and solves an observation problem using a ...
  • Processing of abdominal recordings by Kalman filters 

    Cruz Santiago, Marcos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-07-02)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    [ANGLÈS] Heart diseases are the cause of many deaths during prenatal, childbirth and newborn periods. Therefore, the study of the fetal cardiac signals might be very helpful in order to evaluate the fetal heart status for ...
  • Reduced state representation in delayed-state SLAM 

    Ila, Viorela Simona; Porta Pleite, Josep Maria; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10-11)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper introduces an approach that reduces the size of the state and maximizes the sparsity of the information matrix in exactly sparse delayed-state SLAM. We propose constant time procedures to measure the ...
  • Retrieval of boundary layer height from lidar using extended Kalman filter approach, classic methods, and backtrajectory cluster analysis 

    Banks, Robert Franklin; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Baldasano Recio, José María; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This contribution evaluates an approach using an extended Kalman filter (EKF) to estimate the planetary boundary layer height (PBLH) from lidar measurements obtained in the framework of the European Aerosol Research LIdar ...
  • Robustness and computational efficiency of a Kalman Filter estimator of time-dependent origin-destination matrices: exploiting ICT traffic measurements from information and communications technologiess 

    Barceló Bugeda, Jaime; Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Bullejos González, Manuel Antonio; Linares Herreros, Mª Paz; Serch Muni, Oriol (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Origin–destination (O-D) trip matrices that describe the patterns of traffic behavior across a network are the primary data input used in principal traffic models and, therefore, a critical requirement in all advanced ...
  • Sensor fusion methods for indoor navigation using UWB radio aided INS/DR
