  • Coordinating model predictive control of transport and supply water systems 

    Sun, Congcong; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Springer, 2015)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This book aims at stimulating discussion between researchers working on state of the art approaches for operational control and design of transport of water on the one hand and researchers working on state of the art ...
  • ToF cameras for eye-in-hand robotics 

    Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Foix Salmerón, Sergi; Torras, Carme (2015)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera is a relatively new type of sensor that delivers 3-dimensional images at high frame rate, simultaneously providing intensity data and range information for every pixel. It has been used in a ...
  • Dense segmentation-aware descriptors 

    Trulls Fortuny, Eduard; Kokkinos, Iasonas; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Springer, 2016)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Dense descriptors are becoming increasingly popular in a host of tasks, such as dense image correspondence, bag-of-words image classification, and label transfer. However, the extraction of descriptors on generic image ...
  • Effects of human-machine integration on the construction of identity 

    Ballesté, Francesc; Torras, Carme (2013)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Recent developments in social robotics, intelligent prosthetics, brain-computer interfaces, and implants pose new questions as to the effects of technology on identity, society, and the future of humankind. The authors’ ...
  • Robot interactive learning through human assistance 

    Ferrer Mínguez, Gonzalo; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Huerta Casado, Iván; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
  • Local boosted features for pedestrian detection 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Springer Verlag, 2009-06-12)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The present paper addresses pedestrian detection using local boosted features that are learned from a small set of training images. Our contribution is to use two boosting steps. The first one learns discriminant local ...
  • A recursive embedding approach to median graph computation 

    Ferrer Sumsi, Miquel; Valveny, Ernest; Bunke, Horst (Springer Verlag, 2009-06-12)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The median graph has been shown to be a good choice to infer a representative of a set of graphs. It has been successfully applied to graph-based classification and clustering. Nevertheless, its computation is extremely ...
  • Graph-based k-means clustering: A comparison of the set versus the generalized median graph 

    Ferrer Sumsi, Miquel; Valveny, Ernest; Serratosa Casanelles, Francesc; Bardaji Goikoetxea, Itziar; Bunke, Horst (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper we propose the application of the generalized median graph in a graph-based k-means clustering algorithm. In the graph-based k-means algorithm, the centers of the clusters have been traditionally represented ...
  • 3D object reconstruction from Swissranger sensor data using a spring-mass model 

    Dellen, Babette; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Foix Salmerón, Sergi; Torras, Carme (INSTICC Press. Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We register close-range depth images of objects using a Swissranger sensor and apply a spring-mass model for 3D object reconstruction. The Swissranger sensor delivers depth images in real time which have, compared with ...
  • Simulating dynamical systems for early vision 

    Dellen, Babette; Wörgötter, Florentin (INSTICC Press. Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    We propose a novel algorithm for stereo matching using a dynamical systems approach. The stereo correspondence problem is first formulated as an energy minimization problem. From the energy function, we derive a system of ...
