  • Water demand forecasting for the optimal operation of large-scale drinking water networks: the Barcelona case study 

    Sampathirao, Ajay Kumar; Grosso Pérez, Juan Manuel; Sopasakis, Pantelis; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Bemporad, Alberto; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Drinking Water Networks (DWN) are large-scale multiple-input multiple-output systems with uncertain disturbances (such as the water demand from the consumers) and involve components of linear, non-linear and switching ...
  • On the assessment of tree-based and chance-constrained predictive control approaches applied to drinking water networks 

    Grosso Pérez, Juan Manuel; Maestre Torreblanca, José María; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Water systems are a challenging problem because of their size and exposure to uncertain influences such as the unknown demands or the meteorological phenomena. In this paper, two different stochastic programming approaches ...
  • Continuous real time POMCP to find-and-follow people by a humanoid service robot

  • Output-feedback model predictive control of sewer networks through moving horizon estimation 

    Joseph Duran, Bernat; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Based on a simplified control-oriented hybrid linear delayed model, model predictive control (MPC) of a sewer network designed to reduce pollution during heavy rain events is presented. The lack of measurements at many ...
  • An application of chance-constrained model predictive control to inventory management in hospitalary pharmacy 

    Maestre Torreblanca, José María; Velarde, Pablo; Jurado, Isabel; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Isla Tejera, Beatriz; del Prado, José Ramón (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Inventory management is one of the main tasks that the pharmacy department has to carry out in a hospital. It is a complex problem that requires to establish a tradeoff between different and contradictory optimization ...
  • Chance-constrained model predictive control applied to inventory management in hospitalary pharmacy 

    Maestre Torreblanca, José María; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This extended abstract addresses the preliminary results of applying uncertainty handling strategies and advanced control techniques to the inventary management of hospitality pharmacy. Inventory management is one of the ...
  • Full autonomous navigation for an aerial robot using behavior-based control motion and SLAM 

    Gómez Anaya, David; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report

    This work presents a complete navigation architecture for an autonomous aerial robot. The proposed scheme consist of: i) a low-level controller for establishing the attitude and position of the vehicle, ii) a Simultaneous ...
  • Policy-based optimization for matching validation algorithm in monocular robotics 

    Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A novel policy to use the HOHCT validation algorithm is presented. HOHCT was introduced as a batch gating technique to validate data association in delayed initialization monocular SLAM. This new policy does not alter the ...
  • Synergy analysis as a tool to design and assess an effective stroke rehabilitation 

    Urra, Oiane; Casals Gelpi, Alicia; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The poor rehabilitation success rate, including the cases of ineffective and detrimental adaptations, make stroke a leading cause of disability. Thus, it is essential to recognize the mechanisms driving healthy motor ...
  • Study of synergy patterns during the execution of stroke rehabilitation exercises 

    Urra, Oiane; Casals Gelpi, Alicia; Jané Campos, Raimon (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Stroke is a leading cause of disability, being motor impairments its major consequence. Despite rehabilitation, more than 60% of the patients report upper-limb motor dysfunction. The design of novel rehabilitation strategies ...
