  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Distance-based kernels for dynamical movement primitives 

    Escudero Rodrigo, Diego; Alquézar Mancho, René (IOS Press, 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the Anchoring Problem actions and objects must be anchored to symbols; and movement primitives as DMPs seems a good option to describe actions. In the bottom-up approach to anchoring, the recognition of an action is ...
  • Multi-target & multi-detector people tracker for mobile robots 

    Corominas Murtra, Andreu; Pagès, Jordi; Pfeiffer, Sammy (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    People tracking is a key perception skill for mobile robots designed to share environments with human beings. It allows the robot to keep track of people around them, which is fundamental for two main reasons: safety and ...
  • Efficient monocular pose estimation for complex 3D models 

    Rubio Romano, Antonio; Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Ferraz Colomina, Luis; Peñate Sánchez, Adrián; Ramisa Ayats, Arnau; Simó Serra, Edgar; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We propose a robust and efficient method to estimate the pose of a camera with respect to complex 3D textured models of the environment that can potentially contain more than 100, 000 points. To tackle this problem we ...
  • Real time people detection combining appearance and depth image spaces using boosted random ferns 

    Vaquero Gómez, Víctor; Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a robust and real-time method for people detection in urban and crowed environments. Unlike other conventional methods which either focus on single features or compute multiple and independent classifiers ...
  • Active pose SLAM with RRT* 

    Vallvé Navarro, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We propose a novel method for robotic exploration that evaluates paths that minimize both the joint path and map entropy per meter traveled. The method uses Pose SLAM to update the path estimate, and grows an RRT* tree to ...
  • The extracellular N-terminal domain suffices to discriminate class C G Protein-Coupled Receptor subtypes from n-grams of their sequences 

    König, Caroline; Alquézar Mancho, René; Vellido Alcacena, Alfredo; Giraldo Arjonilla, Jesús (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The investigation of protein functionality often relies on the knowledge of crystal 3-D structure. This structure is not always known or easily unravelled, which is the case of eukaryotic cell membrane proteins such as G ...
