  • Assessment of emotional states through physiological signals and Its application in music therapy for disabled people 

    Valenzuela Ramírez, Andrea; Hornero Ocaña, Gemma; Royo, Daniel; Aguilar, Angel; Casas Piedrafita, Óscar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-07-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Disabled people have more difficulties for expression and interaction on a non-verbal level because of the physical, sensory or communication difficulties that they usually present. Regarding music therapy, the existing ...
  • Adquisición y tratamiento de datos para la caracterización de las acciones dinámicas en los disipadores de energía hidráulica 

    Castillo Elsitdié, Luis Gerardo; Dolz Ripollès, Josep; Polo Cantero, José (1992-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Las características de tridimensionalidad, turbulencia anisotrópica y no homogénea que se presentan en el flujo de los disipadores de energía hidráulica, no permiten un estudio analítico del problema, siendo por tanto la ...

    Polo Cantero, José; Hontecillas Guinart, Lluís; Izquierdo Pérez, Ignacio; Casas Piedrafita, Óscar (2019-10-22)
    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this work is to demonstrate the feasibility use of an Micro air vehicles (MAV) in order to power wirelessly an electric system, for example, a sensor network, using low-cost and open-source elements. To achieve ...
  • Cost-effective autonomous sensor for the long-term monitoring of water electrical conductivity of crop fields 

    Serrano Finetti, Roberto Ernesto; Aliau Bonet, Carles; López Lapeña, Oscar; Pallàs Areny, Ramon (2019-10-01)
    Article

    Salinity is a key parameter determining water quality. In agriculture, irrigation water with high salinity levels impacts plant growth and yield negatively hence there is a need to monitor it and irrigate with fresh water ...
  • A Fully Differential Synchronous Demodulator for AC Signals 

    González Landaeta, Rafael; Cota Ruiz, Juan; Sifuentes, Ernesto; Díaz, José; Casas Piedrafita, Óscar (2019-02-22)
    Article

    A novel fully differential (FD) demodulator is presented. Using different design strategies, the circuit can be used for processing amplitude-modulated (AM) signals obtained from impedance measurements or coming from ...
  • Comments on “A novel high input impedance front-end for capacitive biopotential measurement” 

    Pallàs Areny, Ramon (Springer, 2019-12-13)
    Article
    Open Access
    A front-end for biopotential sensing in wearable medical devices has been recently proposed which is claimed to provide 100 GOinput impedance by manually matching two resistor pairs in a positive- and a negative-feedback ...
  • Common mode electronic noise in differential circuits 

    Serrano Finetti, Roberto Ernesto; Casas Piedrafita, Óscar; Pallàs Areny, Ramon (2019-07-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Differential circuits are assumed to reject common-mode noise yet no parameter is available to describethat rejection as the Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR) applies only to deterministic signals, not torandom noise. We ...

  • Solar energy radiation measurement with a low–power solar energy harvester 

    López Lapeña, Oscar; Pallàs Areny, Ramon (2018-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Solar energy radiation measurements are essential in precision agriculture and forest monitoring and can be readily performed by attaching commercial pyranometers to autonomous sensor nodes. However this solution significantly ...
  • Time-Division Multiplexing Control of Multi-Input Converters for Low-Power Solar Energy Harvesters 

    López Lapeña, Oscar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-03-29)
    Article
    Open Access
    Many autonomous sensor nodes use small photovoltaic (PV) panels oriented towards the direction that provides the highest energy yield in the worst-case scenario. Since all those panels operate at similar irradiance and ...

  • Multisensor system for analyzing the thigh movement during walking 

    Borghetti, Michela; Serpelloni, Mauro; Sardini, Emilio; Casas Piedrafita, Óscar (2017-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Body movements monitoring may allow preventing, diagnosing, and recovering several wrong attitudes that could lead to possible future diseases. A multisensor system was developed to measure thigh movements in free-living ...
