  • How Much Does It Cost to Go Off-Grid with Renewables? A Case Study of a Polygeneration System for a Neighbourhood in Hermosillo, Mexico 

    Wegener, Moritz; López Ordóñez, Carlos Fernando; Isalgué Buxeda, Antonio; Malmquist, Anders; Martin, Andrew (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    As governments and companies struggle to meet their own objectives for the energy transition, more innovative social and technological measures are needed to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. For this purpose, an ...
  • Human motion prediction via spatio-temporal inpainting 

    Hernández Ruiz, Alejandro José; Gall, Juergen; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We propose a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to forecast 3D human motion given a sequence of past 3D skeleton poses. While recent GANs have shown promising results, they can only forecast plausible motion over relatively ...
  • Observer design for Takagi-Sugeno Lipschitz systems affected by disturbances using quadratic boundedness 

    Yang, Ruicong; Rotondo, Damiano; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, a proportional observer design using quadratic boundedness is proposed in order to estimate the state of a system described by a Takagi-Sugeno model with a Lipschitz nonlinearity term, and affected by unknown ...
  • Set-based replay attack detection in closed-loop systems using a plug & play watermarking approach 

    Trapiello Fernández, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a watermarking signal injection method that compensates its effect in the loop, avoiding thus the signal reinjection. Similar to a virtual actuator scheme, the proposed methodology masks the presence ...
  • Human-robot collaborative navigation search using social reward sources 

    Dalmasso Blanch, Marc; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Jimenez Schlegl, Pablo; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a Social Reward Sources (SRS) design for a Human-Robot Collaborative Navigation (HRCN) task: human-robot collaborative search. It is a flexible approach capable of handling the collaborative task, ...
  • Effects of a social force model reward in robot navigation based on deep reinforcement learning 

    Gil Viyuela, Óscar; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper is proposed an inclusion of the Social Force Model (SFM) into a concrete Deep Reinforcement Learning (RL) framework for robot navigation. These types of techniques have demonstrated to be useful to deal with ...
  • Modelling liquid water effect on proton-exchange membrane fuel cells 

    Aguilar Plazaola, José Agustín; Husar, Attila Peter (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This work introduces our ongoing research in developing accurate models for predicting and analyzing Proton-Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells performance. An initial model, whose response is compared with experimental data is ...
  • Vehicle pose estimation via regression of semantic points of interest 

    García López, Javier; Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we address the problem of extracting vehicle 3D pose from 2D RGB images. An accurate methodology is presented that is capable of locating 3D coordinates of 20 pre-defined semantic vehicle points of interest ...
  • An adaptive disturbance rejection control scheme for voltage regulation in DC micro-grids 

    Raveendran Nair, Unnikrishnan; Costa Castelló, Ramon; Ramos Fuentes, German A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Uncertain generation by renewable sources and load variations have resulted in adding energy storage systems in the grid to maintain grid parameters (voltage, frequency) within prescribed limits. The disturbances being ...
  • Observador de alta ganancia con zona muerta para pilas de combustible PEM 

    Cecilia Piñol, Andreu; Costa Castelló, Ramon (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    En este trabajo se presenta el diseño de un observador de estado para la estimación de la saturación de agua líquida en la capa catalizadora del cátodo de una pila de combustible PEM de cátodo abierto. El observador propuesto ...
  • Load profile effect on durability of proton exchange membrane fuel cells 

    Aguilar Plazaola, José Agustín; Husar, Attila Peter (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC) are a promising technology for substitution of hydrocarbon powerdrives and battery based electrical supply systems. However, below-required durability is still an important factor ...
  • A fast branch-and-prune algorithm for the position analysis of spherical mechanisms 

    Shabani, Arya; Sarabandi, Soheil; Porta Pleite, Josep Maria; Thomas, Federico (Springer, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Different branch-and-prune schemes can be found in the literature for numerically solving the position analysis of spherical mechanisms. For the prune operation, they all rely on the propagation of motion intervals. They ...
