  • Air traffic deconfliction using sum coloring 

    Duchamp, Vincent; Josefsson, Billy; Polishchuk, Tatiana; Polishchuk, Valentin; Sáez García, Raúl; Wiren, Richard (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper studies strategic conflict resolution for air traffic based on sum coloring. We consider two application scenarios: manned and unmanned air traffic, with similar targets: to improve efficiency of operations and ...
  • Using wind observations from nearby aircraft to update the optimal descent trajectory in real-time 

    Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Baxley, Brian (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The ability to meet a controlled time of arrival during a continuous descent operation will enable environmentally friendly and fuel efficient descent operations while simultane- ously maintaining airport throughput. ...
  • Identifying the sources of flight inefficiency from historical aircraft trajectories. A set of distance- and fuel-based performance indicators for post-operational analysis. 

    Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper a set of new performance indicators (PIs) aiming to capture the environmental impact of aircraft operations is proposed. Its contribution is threefold: optimal trajectories are computed to compare them with ...
  • Automation for separation with CDOs: dynamic aircraft arrival routes 

    Sáez García, Raúl; Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Polishchuk, Tatiana; Polishchuk, Valentin; Schmidt, Christiane (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a mixed-integer programming (MIP) approach to compute aircraft arrival routes in a terminal maneuvering area (TMA) that guarantee temporal separation of all aircraft arriving within a given time period, where ...
  • A scenario centred approach to emotion profiling based on EEG signal processing 

    Reyes Muñoz, María Angélica; Rebolledo Mendez, Genaro; Callaghan, Victor (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report

    This paper considers how the use of physiological sensing to measure human emotions will change the world in areas such as education, human-robot interfaces, job applications, interaction with friends, finding love and ...
  • Study of a complete free route airspace implementation in the european airspace 

    Nava Gaxiola, Cesar; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Royo Chic, Pablo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Free route airspace permits users to freely plan a route between defined entry and exit waypoints, with the possibility of routing via intermediate points. Flights flying in a free route area remain subject to air traffic ...
  • Self-training by reinforcement learning for full-autonomous drones of the future 

    Kersandt, Kjell; Muñoz Ferran, Guillem; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Drones are rapidly increasing their activity in the airspace worldwide. This expected growth of the number of drones makes human-based traffic management prohibitive. Avionics systems able to sense-and-avoid obstacles ...
  • Building a safe and socially acceptable concept of operation for drones flying at the very low level 

    Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Pastor Llorens, Enric (2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    As part of the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) a number of projects related to the drones flying at the very low level (VLL) have been funded. At its core, the CORUS project is developing the concept of operations ...
  • Effect of radii of exemption on ground delay programs with operating cost based cruise speed reduction 

    Delgado Muñoz, Luis; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    When a ground delay program (GDP) is defined, a radius of exemption is typically set to exclude from having to realize ground delay aircraft departing from greater distances than the selected radius distance. A trade-off ...
  • An efficient unique state coding algorithm for signal transition graphs 

    Pastor Llorens, Enric; Cortadella, Jordi (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1993)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Current algorithms to force the complete state coding (CSC) property for signal transition graphs work on the state graph and, therefore require exponential time and space. Polynomial algorithms have been only proposed for ...
