  • Distance geometry in active structures 

    Porta Pleite, Josep Maria; Rojas Librero, Nicolás Enrique; Thomas, Federico (Springer, 2018)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    Distance constraints are an emerging formulation that offers intuitive geometrical interpretation of otherwise complex problems. The formulation can be applied in problems such as position and singularity analysis and path ...
  • Scene understanding using deep learning 

    Husain, Syed Farzad; Dellen, Babette Karla Margarete; Torras, Carme (Elsevier, 2017)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    Automation based on artificial intelligence becomes necessary when agents such as robots are deployed to perform complex tasks. Detailed representation of a scene makes robots better aware of their surroundings, thereby ...
  • Model predictive control of water networks considering flow 

    Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Minoves Ruiz, Meritxell; Creus Rodriguez, Ramon (Springer, 2017)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    This book presents a set of approaches for the real-time monitoring and control of drinking-water networks based on advanced information and communication technologies. It shows the reader how to achieve significant ...
  • Design and development of aerial robotic systems for sampling operations in industrial environment 

    Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Urzua, Sarquis; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Grau Saldes, Antoni (InTech, 2017-09-06)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    This chapter describes the development of an autonomous fluid sampling system for outdoor facilities, and the localization solution to be used. The automated sampling system will be based on collaborative robotics, with a ...
  • Robot pain: a speculative review of its functions 

    Torras, Carme (Wolters Kluwer, 2016-05)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    Given the scarce bibliography dealing explicitly with robot pain, this chapter has enriched its review with related research works about robot behaviours and capacities in which pain could play a role. It is shown that all ...
  • Coordinating model predictive control of transport and supply water systems 

    Sun, Congcong; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Springer, 2015)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    This book aims at stimulating discussion between researchers working on state of the art approaches for operational control and design of transport of water on the one hand and researchers working on state of the art ...
  • ToF cameras for eye-in-hand robotics 

    Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Foix Salmerón, Sergi; Torras, Carme (2015)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    A Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera is a relatively new type of sensor that delivers 3-dimensional images at high frame rate, simultaneously providing intensity data and range information for every pixel. It has been used in a ...
  • Dense segmentation-aware descriptors 

    Trulls Fortuny, Eduard; Kokkinos, Iasonas; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Springer, 2016)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Dense descriptors are becoming increasingly popular in a host of tasks, such as dense image correspondence, bag-of-words image classification, and label transfer. However, the extraction of descriptors on generic image ...
  • Effects of human-machine integration on the construction of identity 

    Ballesté, Francesc; Torras, Carme (2013)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Recent developments in social robotics, intelligent prosthetics, brain-computer interfaces, and implants pose new questions as to the effects of technology on identity, society, and the future of humankind. The authors’ ...
  • Robot interactive learning through human assistance 

    Ferrer Mínguez, Gonzalo; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Huerta Casado, Iván; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
  • Local boosted features for pedestrian detection 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Springer Verlag, 2009-06-12)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    The present paper addresses pedestrian detection using local boosted features that are learned from a small set of training images. Our contribution is to use two boosting steps. The first one learns discriminant local ...
  • A recursive embedding approach to median graph computation 

    Ferrer Sumsi, Miquel; Valveny, Ernest; Bunke, Horst (Springer Verlag, 2009-06-12)
    Capítol de llibre
    Accés obert
    The median graph has been shown to be a good choice to infer a representative of a set of graphs. It has been successfully applied to graph-based classification and clustering. Nevertheless, its computation is extremely ...
