  • Dynamic modeling and controllability analysis of an ethanol reformer for fuel cell application 

    García, Vanesa Mariel; Lopez Null, Eduardo; Serra, Maria; Llorca Piqué, Jordi; Riera Colomer, Jordi (2010-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents a controllability analysis of a low temperature ethanol reformer based on a cobalt catalyst for fuel cell application. The study is based on a nonlinear dynamic model of ...
  • Exact interval propagation for the efficient solution of position analysis problems on planar linkages 

    Celaya Llover, Enric; Creemers, Tom Lambert; Ros Giralt, Lluís (2012)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents an interval propagation algorithm for variables in planar single-loop linkages. Given intervals of allowed values for all variables, the algorithm provides, for every variable, the whole set of values, ...
  • Introduccion a la diagnosis de fallos basada en modelos mediante aprendizaje basado en proyectos 

    Costa Castelló, Ramon; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim (2016-04-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    La diagnosis de fallos basada en modelos es hoy en día un campo maduro dentro de la ingeniería de control que empieza a formar parte de los planes de estudios de grado y postgrado. Sin embargo, la falta de buenos materiales ...
  • 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 ...
