  • Evaluating the use of robots to enlarge AAL services 

    Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Pfeiffer, Sammy; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Téllez Lara, Ricardo (2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We introduce robots as a tools to enhance Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) services. Robots are a unique opportunity to create new systems to cooperate in reaching better living conditions. Robots offer the possibility of ...
  • Service robots for citizens of the future 

    Torras, Carme (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robots are no longer confined to factories; they are progressively spreading to urban, social and assistive domains. In order to become handy co-workers and helpful assistants, they must be endowed with quite different ...
  • Uncertainty analysis of the DLT-Lines calibration algorithm for cameras with radial distortion 

    Galego, Ricardo; Ortega, Agustin; Ferreira, Ricardo; Bernardino, Alexandre; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Gaspar, José (2015)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    3D metric data of environmental structures is nowadays present in many information sources (maps, GIS) and can be easily acquired with modern depth sensing technology (RGBD, laser). This wealth of information can be readily ...
  • Nonlinear distributed parameter observer design for fuel cell systems 

    Luna Pacho, Julio Alberto; Husar, Attila Peter; Serra, Maria (2015-09-14)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents the development of a nonlinear state observer to estimate the different gas species concentration profiles in a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell energy system. The selection of the estimated states ...
  • MSClique: Multiple structure discovery through the maximum weighted clique problem 

    Sanromà Güell, Gerard; Peñate Sánchez, Adrián; Alquézar Mancho, René; Serratosa Casanelles, Francesc; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; González Ballester, Miguel Ángel (2016-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a novel approach for feature correspondence and multiple structure discovery in computer vision. In contrast to existing methods, we exploit the fact that point-sets on the same structure usually lie close to ...
  • Variable symmetry breaking in numerical constraint problems 

    Goldsztejn, Alexandre; Jermann, Christophe; Ruiz de Angulo García, Vicente; Torras, Carme (2015)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Symmetry breaking has been a hot topic of research in the past years, leading to many theoretical developments as well as strong scaling strategies for dealing with hard applications. Most of the research has however focused ...
  • A multi-timescale modeling methodology for PEMFC performance and durability in a virtual fuel cell car 

    Mayur, Manik; Strahl, Stephan; Husar, Attila Peter; Bessler, Wolfang G. (2015)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The durability of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) is governed by a nonlinear cou-pling between system demand, component behavior, and physicochemical degradation mechanisms, occurring on timescales from the ...
  • Set-membership identification and fault detection using a Bayesian framework 

    Fernández Canti, Rosa M.; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Tornil Sin, Sebastián (2016-05-18)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper deals with the problem of set-membership identification and fault detection using a Bayesian framework. The paper presents how the set-membership model estimation problem can be reformulated from the Bayesian ...
  • Ouput-feedback control of combined sewer networks through receding horizon control with moving horizon estimation 

    Joseph Duran, Bernat; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    An output-feedback control strategy for pollution mitigation in combined sewer networks is presented. The proposed strategy provides means to apply model-based predictive control to large-scale sewer networks, in-spite of ...
  • Robust fault diagnosis of proton exchange membrane fuel cells using a Takagi-Sugeno interval observer approach 

    Rotondo, Damiano; Fernández Canti, Rosa M.; Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2016-01-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, the problem of robust fault diagnosis of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells is addressed by introducing the Takagi-Sugeno (TS) interval observers that consider uncertainty in a bounded context, adapting ...
