The Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial was created in November 1995 as a Joint Research Institute of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).

The Institute was created with three main objectives: a) to promote a multidisciplinary center where CSIC and UPC researchers from different fields can combine efforts to carry out research on robotics and applied informatics; b) to offer to the community an Institute for fundamental and pre‐industrial technological research, offering also scientific education through doctorate and postgraduate courses; and c) to promote a quality‐based center being competitive enough to join other partners to participate in local, national and European research programs.

  • Economic MPC with periodic terminal constraints of nonlinear differential-algebraic-equation systems: Application to drinking water networks 

    Wang, Ye; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In this paper, an Economic Model Predictive Control (EMPC) strategy with periodic terminal constraints is addressed for nonlinear differential-algebraic-equation systems with an application to Drinking Water Networks (DWNs). ...
  • Robust optimization based energy dispatch in smart grids considering demand uncertainty 

    Nassourou, M; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In this study we discuss the application of robust optimization to the problem of economic energy dispatch in smart grids. Robust optimization based MPC strategies for tackling uncertain load demands are developed. ...
  • Sensor placement for leak monitoring in drinking water networks combining clustering techniques and a semi-exhaustive search

    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper presents an optimal sensor placement strategy based on pressure sensitivity matrix analysis and a semi-exhaustive search strategy that maximizes some diagnosis specifications for water distribution networks. A ...
  • Decentralized fault-tolerant control of inland navigation networks: a challenge 

    Segovia, Pablo; Rajaoarisoa, Lala H.; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Duviella, Eric (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Inland waterways are large-scale networks used principally for navigation. Even if the transport planning is an important issue, the water resource management is a crucial point. Indeed, navigation is not possible when ...
  • A methodology for distributed fault diagnosis 

    Gupta, Vikas; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In this paper, a methodology for distributed fault diagnosis is proposed. The algorithm places the sensors in a system in such a manner that the partition of a system into various subsystems becomes ...
  • On teaching model-based fault diagnosis in engineering curricula 

    Costa Castelló, Ramon; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim (2016-02-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This article presents an example of how a fault-diagnosis course has been included in an engineering curricula in a motivating way, in particular, in the automatic control and robotic master's degree program at UPC. This ...

  • HRA*: hybrid randomized path planning for complex 3D environments 

    Teniente Avilés, Ernesto Homar; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    We propose HRA*, a new randomized path planner for complex 3D environments. The method is a modified A* algorithm that uses a hybrid node expansion technique that combines a random exploration of the action space meeting ...
