El Grup de Recerca en Sistemes Intel·ligents de Control (SIC) és un grup multidisciplinari de professors de la Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) - Barcelona Tech dedicat a l'ampli món del control automàtic i la supervisió de sistemes.
L’objectiu principal del SIC és contribuir a la competitivitat de les nostres empreses i al coneixement científic i tècnic. Els investigadors del SIC descriuen els sistemes dinàmics mitjançant models matemàtics, analitzen dinàmicament el seu comportament en domini temporal i freqüencial, localitzen de forma òptima sensors, dissenyen sistemes de control avançats (controladors predictius, controladors intel·ligents, ...) i desenvolupen sistemes de supervisió que optimitzen criteris de funcionament sota diverses restriccions amb capacitat per predir, detectar i diagnosticar fallades i amb capacitat per crear mecanismes tolerants a possibles fallades en temps real dels sistemes complexos.

  • Reconfigurability analysis of multirotor UAVs under actuator faults 

    Sanjuan Gómez, Adrián; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Sarrate Estruch, Ramon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a reconfigurability analysis for different multirotor structures. The aim is to determine whether the multirotor is able to continue the mission without losing its controllability when faults occur in ...
  • Data-driven approach for leak localization in water distribution networks using pressure sensors and spatial interpolation 

    Soldevila, Adrià; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Fernández Canti, Rosa M.; Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2019-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a new data-driven method for leak localization in water distribution networks. The proposed method relies on the use of available pressure measurements in some selected internal network nodes and on the ...
  • An LMI–based heuristic algorithm for vertex reduction in LPV systems 

    Sanjuan Gómez, Adrián; Rotondo, Damiano; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Sarrate Estruch, Ramon (2019)
    Article
    Open Access
    The linear parameter varying (LPV) approach has proved to be suitable for controlling many non-linear systems. However, for those which are highly non-linear and complex, the number of scheduling variables increases rapidly. ...
  • Design of a FOSS GIS tool for wildfire spread simulation, fire supression resource management and risk analysis 

    Figueras Jové, Jaume; Guasch Petit, Antonio; Casanovas Garcia, Josep (Themify, 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Wildfire simulation require of many geographical and georeferenced datasets. Integrating all of the processes for simulation into a GIS seems natural, but most of the solutions available are closed source, do not use ...
  • Design and evaluation of a graphical user interface for facilitating expert knowledge transfer: a teleoperation case study 

    Rodriguez Sedano, Francisco; Conde González, Miguel; Ponsa Asensio, Pere; Muñoz Morgado, Luis Miguel; Fernandez Llamas, Camino (Springer, 2019-08-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Nowadays, teleoperation systems are increasingly used for the training of specific skills to carry out complex tasks in dangerous environments. One of the challenges of these systems is to ensure that the time it takes for ...
  • Robust fault detection of non-linear systems using set-membership state estimation based on constraint satisfaction 

    Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Escobet Canal, Teresa (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, the robust fault detection problem for non-linear systems considering both bounded parametric modelling errors and measurement noises is addressed. The non-linear system is monitored by using a state estimator ...
