    In 2016, 1,100 million people lack access to electricity, mainly in developing countries in Africa, Asia and South America. In these countries, there is a large potential for hydroelectric production through off-grid ...
  • Cognitive system framework for brain-training exercise based on human-robot interactif

    Every 3 seconds, someone develops dementia worldwide. Brain-training exercises, preferably involving also physical activity, have shown their potential to monitor and improve the brain function of people affected by Alzheimer ...
  • Ammonia decomposition over 3D-printed CeO2 structures loaded with Ni 

    Lucentini, Ilaria; Serrano Carreño, M. Isabel; Soler Turu, Lluís; Jiménez Divins, Nuria; Llorca Piqué, Jordi (2020-02-05)
    Article

    Binder-free ceria pastes have been formulated and used to prepare ceria structures with a woodpile arrangement of microchannels through 3D printing. After loading them with nickel, these catalytic structures have been ...
  • 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 ...
  • Seeing and hearing egocentric actions: how much can we learn? 

    Cartas Ayala, Alejandro; Luque, Jordi; Radeva, Petia; Segura, Carlos; Dimiccoli, Mariella (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Our interaction with the world is an inherently multi-modal experience. However, the understanding of human-to-object interactions has historically been addressed focusing on a single modality. In particular, a limited ...
  • Unsupervised image-to-video clothing transfer 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Goswami, Vedanuj; Vicente, Francisco; De La Torre, Fernando; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a system to photo-realistically transfer the clothing of a person in a reference image into another person in an unconstrained image or video. Our architecture is based on a GAN equipped with a physical memory ...
  • 3DPeople: modeling the geometry of dressed humans 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Sánchez Riera, Jordi; Choi, Gary; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Recent advances in 3D human shape estimation build upon parametric representations that model very well the shape of the naked body, but are not appropriate to represent the clothing geometry. In this paper, we present an ...
  • Absolute humanoid localization and mapping based on IMU Lie group and fiducial markers 

    Fourmy, Mederic; Atchuthan, Dinseh; Mansard, Nicolas; Solà Ortega, Joan; Flayols, Thomas (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Current locomotion algorithms in structured (in-door) 3D environments require an accurate localization. The several and diverse sensors typically embedded on legged robots (IMU, coders, vision and/or LIDARS) should make ...
  • Macroporous silicon coated with M/TiO2 (M=Au,Pt) as a highly efficient photoreactor for hydrogen production 

    Serafin, Jaroslaw; Soler Turu, Lluís; Vega Bru, Didac; Rodríguez Martínez, Ángel; Llorca Piqué, Jordi (2020-03-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Macroporous silicon disks containing ordered channels of 2 µm side and 0.2 mm length (9 × 106 channels cm-2) have been functionalized with a thin layer of Au/TiO2 and Pt/TiO2 photocatalysts and tested in the photoproduction ...
  • Economic MPC-LPV control for the operational management of water distribution networks 

    Karimi Pour, Fatemeh; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Elsevier, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents an Economic Model Predictive Control (EMPC) for the operational management of water distribution networks (WDNs) with periodic operation based on embedding the nonlinearity of the model to the Linear ...
  • Fault diagnosis for uncertain systems based on unknown input set-membership filters 

    Tang, Wentao; Wang, Zhenhua; Wang, Ye; Shen, Yi (2018)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper proposes a novel actuator fault diagnosis method for linear systems subject to parametric uncertainties and unknown disturbances. By considering the specified actuator faults as unknown inputs and approximating ...
