  • Reducing the n-gram feature space of class C GPCRs to subtype-discriminating patterns 

    König, Caroline; Alquézar Mancho, René; Vellido Alcacena, Alfredo; Giraldo Arjonilla, Jesús (2014-10-23)
    Article
    Open Access
    G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are a large and heterogeneous superfamily of receptors that are key cell players for their role as extracellular signal transmitters. Class C GPCRs, in particular, are of great interest ...
  • Terrain classification in complex three-dimensional outdoor environments 

    Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Teniente Avilés, Ernesto Homar; Morta Garriga, Martí; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents two techniques to detect and classify navigable terrain in complex three-dimensional (3D) environments. The first method is a low level on-line mechanism aimed at detecting obstacles and holes at a fast ...
  • Calibration of an outdoor distributed camera network with a 3D point cloud 

    Ortega, Agustin; Silva, Manuel; Teniente Avilés, Ernesto Homar; Ferreira, Ricardo; Bernardino Bernardino Malheiro, Alexandre José; Gaspar, José; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (2014)
    Article
    Open Access
    Outdoor camera networks are becoming ubiquitous in critical urban areas of the largest cities around the world. Although current applications of camera networks are mostly tailored to video surveillance, recent research ...
  • Learning RGB-D descriptors of garment parts for informed robot grasping 

    Ramisa Ayats, Arnau; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Torras, Carme (2014)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robotic handling of textile objects in household environments is an emerging application that has recently received considerable attention thanks to the development of domestic robots. Most current approaches follow a ...
  • Buck-boost converter with fractional control for electric vehicles 

    Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Martínez García, Herminio (2010-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, non-integer order control is applied to improve the performance of a buck-boost dc-dc power converter with ultracapacitor based on state feedback techniques. The approach is based on stabilization in the ...
  • Bayesian human motion intentionality prediction in urban environments 

    Ferrer Mínguez, Gonzalo; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2014-07-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    Human motion prediction in indoor and outdoor scenarios is a key issue towards human robot interaction and intelligent robot navigation in general. In the present work, we propose a new human motion intentionality indicator, ...
  • Monocular SLAM for autonomous robots with enhanced features initialization 

    Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Grau Saldes, Antoni (2014-04-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents a variant approach to the monocular SLAM problem focused in exploiting the advantages of a human-robot interaction (HRI) framework. Based upon the delayed inverse-depth feature initialization SLAM (DI-D ...
  • Gray-Box model of inland navigation channel: application to the Cuinchy–Fontinettes reach 

    Horváth, Klaudia; Duviella, Eric; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Rajaoarisoa, Lala H.; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Chuquet, Karine (2014-02-22)
    Article
    Open Access
    In a context of global change, inland navigation transport has gained interest with economic and environmental benefits. The development of this means of conveyance requires the improvement of its management rules to deal ...
  • Linear parameter varying modelling and identification for real-time control of open-flow irrigation canals 

    Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim (Elsevier, 2014)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Irrigation canals are open-flow water hydraulic systems, whose objective is mainly to convey water from its source down to its final users. They are large distributed systems characterized by non-linearity and dynamic ...
  • Discussion on Muskingum versus Integrator-delay models for control objectives 

    Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Grau Saldes, Antoni (2014-08-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    A comparative study about two models, Muskingum and integrator-delay (ID) models, for canal control is presented. The former is a simplified hydrological model which is very simple and extensively used in hydraulic engineering ...
