    Design has a key role to play in developing innovative solutions to current local and global challenges – approaches that must consider the needs of end users and integrate sustainability criteria in processes and ...
  • A review of convex approaches for control, observation and safety of linear parameter varying and Takagi-Sugeno systems 

    López Estrada, Francisco Ronay; Rotondo, Damiano; Valencia Palomo, Guillermo (2019)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper provides a review about the concept of convex systems based on Takagi-Sugeno, linear parameter varying (LPV) and quasi-LPV modeling. These paradigms are capable of hiding the nonlinearities by means of an ...
  • Differential temperature sensors: Review of applications in the test and characterization of circuits, usage and design methodology 

    Barajas Ojeda, Enrique; Aragonès Cervera, Xavier; Mateo Peña, Diego; Altet Sanahujes, Josep (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-11-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    Differential temperature sensors can be placed in integrated circuits to extract a signature ofthe power dissipated by the adjacent circuit blocks built in the same silicon die. This review paper firstdiscusses the singularity ...
  • Self multi-head attention for speaker recognition 

    India Massana, Miquel Àngel; Safari, Pooyan; Hernando Pericás, Francisco Javier (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Most state-of-the-art Deep Learning (DL) approaches forspeaker recognition work on a short utterance level. Given thespeech signal, these algorithms extract a sequence of speakerembeddings from short segments and those are ...

  • Auto-encoding nearest neighbor i-vectors for speaker verification 

    Khan, Umair; India Massana, Miquel Àngel; Hernando Pericás, Francisco Javier (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In the last years, i-vectors followed by cosine or PLDA scoringtechniques were the state-of-the-art approach in speaker veri-fication. PLDA requires labeled background data, and thereexists a significant performance gap ...
  • Performance analysis of a self-protection system for vehicles in case of WUI fire entrapment 

    Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Sebastià, Joan; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Sheltering inside a civilian vehicle has proved to be a high risk strategy in case of wildfire entrapment. Survival is by no means guaranteed, especially in moderate to high-intensity wildfires. However, vehicles do offer ...
  • Direct flame contact

  • Computing wildfire behaviour metrics from CFD simulation data 

    Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Mata, Christian; Rios Rubiras, Oriol; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Parsons, Russell (International Association of Wildland Fire, 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this article, we demonstrate a new post-processing methodology which can be used to analyse CFD wildfire simulation outputs in a model-independent manner. CFD models produce a great deal of quantitative output but require ...
