    Since the appearance of 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) has gained an increased interest, with multiple technologies emerging and converging to cover different user needs. One of the biggest challenges today is to have global ...
  • Calculation of the overlap function and associated error of an elastic lidar or a ceilometer: Cross-comparison with a cooperative overlap-corrected system 

    Sicard, Michaël; Rodríguez Gómez, Alejandro Antonio; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Muñoz Porcar, Constantino (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-11-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper establishes the relationship between the signal of a lidar system corrected for the incomplete overlap effect and the signal of another lidar system or a ceilometer for which the overlap function is unknown. ...
  • L-band vegetation optical depth estimation using transmitted GNSS signals: Application to GNSS-reflectometry and positioning 

    Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Alonso Arroyo, Alberto; Hyuk, Park; Onrubia Ibáñez, Raúl; Pascual Biosca, Daniel; Querol Borràs, Jorge (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    At L-band (1–2 GHz), and particularly in microwave radiometry (1.413 GHz), vegetation has been traditionally modeled with the τ-ω model. This model has also been used to compensate for vegetation effects in Global Navigation ...
