    Muñoz Morgado, Luis Miguel (2016-03-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    A description about how the ISO norm 9241-9 is useful evaluating the ergonomics in interaction with computers.
  • Método multiobjetivo de aprendizaje para razonamiento inductivo difuso 

    Acosta, Jesús; Nebot Castells, M. Àngela; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª (2006-10)
    External research report
    Open Access
    It has been recognized in various studies that the variations in the granularity (number of classes per variable) and the membership functions have a significant effect in the behaviour of the fuzzy systems. The FIR ...
  • Sensorless force estimation using a neuro-vision-based approach for robotic-assisted surgery 

    Avilés Rivero, Angélica Ivone; Alsaleh, Samar M.; Sobrevilla Frisón, Pilar; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper addresses the issue of lack of force feedback in robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgeries. Force is an important measure for surgeons in order to prevent intra-operative complications and tissue damage. ...
  • Force-feedback sensory substitution using supervised recurrent learning for robotic-assisted surgery 

    Avilés Rivero, Angélica; Alsaleh, Samar M.; Sobrevilla Frisón, Pilar; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report

    The lack of force feedback is considered one of the major limitations in Robot Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgeries. Since add-on sensors are not a practical solution for clinical environments, in this paper we present a ...
  • Automatic and robust single-camera specular highlight removal in cardiac images 

    Alsaleh, Samar M.; Avilés Rivero, Angélica; Sobrevilla Frisón, Pilar; Casals Gelpi, Alicia; Hahn, James K. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference lecture

    In computer-assisted beating heart surgeries, accurate tracking of the heart’s motion is of huge importance and there is a continuous need to eliminate any source of error that might disturb the tracking process. One source ...
  • On the optimal reactive power control for grid-connected photovoltaic distributed generation systems 

    Velasco García, Manel; Martí Colom, Pau; Torres Martínez, Javier; Miret Tomàs, Jaume; Castilla Fernández, Miguel (2015)
    Conference lecture

    The increasing deployment of distributed generation (DG) such as photovoltaic panels (PV) connected to low-voltage (LV) grids is becoming a common trend in urban areas. The advances of information and communication technology ...
  • Optimal-sampling-inspired self-triggered control 

    Velasco García, Manel; Martí Colom, Pau; Bini, Enrico (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report

    Self-triggered control is an appealing sampling strategy that promises to preserve the same control performance as traditional (periodic) sampling, yet consuming less computing resource by executing the controller less ...
  • Compliant gait assistance triggered by user intention 

    Rajasekaran, Vijaykumar; Aranda López, Juan; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    An automatic gait initialization strategy based on user intention sensing in the context of rehabilitation with a lower-limb wearable robot is proposed and evaluated. The proposed strategy involves monitoring the human-orthosis ...
  • Adaptive walking assistance based on human-orthosis interaction 

    Rajasekaran, Vijaykumar; Aranda López, Juan; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    An assistive rehabilitation strategy for a lower-limb wearable robot is proposed and evaluated. The control strategy monitors the human-orthosis interaction torques and modifies the orthosis operation mode depending on its ...
  • User intention driven adaptive gait assistance using a wearable exoskeleton 

    Rajasekaran, Vijaykumar; Aranda López, Juan; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (Springer, 2016)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A user intention based rehabilitation strategy for a lower-limb wearable robot is proposed and evaluated. The control strategy, which involves monitoring the human-orthosis interaction torques, determines the gait initiation ...
