  • Modeling robot's world with minimal effort 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We propose an efficient Human Robot Interaction approach to efficiently model the appearance of all relevant objects in robot’s environment. Given an input video stream recorded while the robot is navigating, the user just ...
  • 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 ...
  • STEP, a new program for excellence in sustainability at the Technical University of Catalonia UPC 

    Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda (2016-02)

  • Constant switching frequency control-based linear-assisted DC/DC regulator for photovoltaic solar-powered facilities 

    Martínez García, Herminio; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Hybrid DC-DC regulators or linear–assisted DC-DC regulators are structures that combine both a linear voltage regulator and a switching DC-DC converter. The main objective of this hybrid topology is to converge, in a single ...
  • Matchability prediction for full-search template matching algorithms 

    Peñate Sánchez, Adrián; Porzi, Lorenzo; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    While recent approaches have shown that it is possible to do template matching by exhaustively scanning the parameter space, the resulting algorithms are still quite demanding. In this paper we alleviate the computational ...
  • 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 ...
  • Vision-based SLAM system for unmanned aerial vehicles 

    Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Urzua, Sarquis; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Grau Saldes, Antoni (2016-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    The present paper describes a vision-based simultaneous localization and mapping system to be applied to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The main contribution of this work is to propose a novel estimator relying on an ...
  • 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 ...
  • High-frequency MAV state estimation using low-cost inertial and optical flow measurement units 

    Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Solà Ortega, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper develops a new method for 3D, high rate vehicle state estimation, specially designed for free-flying Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs). We fuse observations from inertial and optical flow low-cost measurement units, ...
  • Low cost, robust and real time system for detecting and tracking moving objects to automate cargo handling in port terminals 

    Vaquero Gómez, Víctor; Repiso Polo, Ely; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Vissers, John; Kwakkernaat, Maurice (Springer, 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The presented paper addresses the problem of detecting and tracking moving objects for autonomous cargo handling in port terminals using a perception system which input data is a single layer laser scanner. A computationally ...
