    This paper considers zonotopic fault detection observer design in the finite-frequency domain for discrete-time Takagi–Sugeno fuzzy systems with unknown but bounded disturbances and measurement noise. We present a novel ...
  • Social networks and robot companions: technology, ethics and science fiction 

    Torras, Carme (2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Information technologies have become part of our everyday lives and are increasingly acting as intermediaries in our workplaces and personal relationships or even substituting them. This growing interaction with machines ...
  • Mitigation of communication failures in distributed model predictive control strategies 

    Ananduta, Wayan Wicak; Barreiro Gómez, Julián; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Quijano Silva, Nicanor (2018-12-18)
    Article
    Open Access
    Information sharing among local controllers is the key feature of any Distributed Model Predictive Control (DMPC) strategy. This paper addresses the problem of communication failures in DMPC strategies and proposes a ...
  • Análisis y diseño de sistemas lineales con parámetros variantes utilizando LMIs 

    Rotondo, Damiano; Sánchez Corrales, Helem Sabina; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Elsevier, 2019)
    Article
    Open Access
    En este artículo se presenta un tutorial sobre análisis y diseño de sistemas lineales con parámetros variantes (LPV) utilizando las desigualdades lineales matriciales (LMIs). Varias especificaciones, tales como la ...
  • Visual-based SLAM configurations for cooperative multi-UAV systems with a lead agent: an observability-based approach 

    Trujillo, Juan Carlos; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018-12-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work, the problem of the cooperative visual-based SLAM for the class of multi-UA systems that integrates a lead agent has been addressed. In these kinds of systems, a team of aerial robots flying in formation must ...
  • A two-tank benchmark for detection and isolation of cyber attacks 

    Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Sánchez Corrales, Helem Sabina; Rotondo, Damiano; Escobet Canal, Teresa; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2018-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a benchmark for the detection and isolation of cyber attacks, which is a non-linear controlled interconnected system based on a two tank system. In this benchmark, a malicious attacker wants to remain ...
  • Distributed model predictive control applied to a VAV based HVAC system based on sensitivity analysis 

    Darure, Tejaswinee; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Yamé, Joseph; Hamelin, Frederic; Wang, Ye (2018-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper proposes a distributed model predictive control strategy for a HVAC system that relies on its decomposition into subsystems based on the sensitivity analysis. An economic model predictive controller is implemented ...
  • Dimensionality reduction in learning Gaussian mixture models of movement primitives for contextualized action selection and adaptation 

    Colomé Figueras, Adrià; Torras, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robotic manipulation often requires adaptation to changing environments. Such changes can be represented by a certain number of contextual variables that may be observed or sensed in different manners. When learning and ...
  • "Elbows out": predictive tracking of partially occluded pose for robot-assisted dressing 

    Chance, Greg; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Caleb-Solly, Praminda; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme; Dogramadzi, Sanja (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robots that can assist in the Activities of Daily Living (ADL), such as dressing, may support older adults, addressing the needs of an aging population in the face of a growing shortage of care professionals. Using depth ...
  • CURSA-SQ: a methodology for service-centric traffic flow analysis 

    Ruiz Ramírez, Marc; Coltraro Ianniello, Franco; Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The rapid availability of new services means that network operators cannot exhaustively test their impact on the network or anticipate any capacity exhaustion. This situation will be worse with the imminent introduction ...
