    La tecnología es sin duda una parte esencial en todo lo que hace referencia a la asistencia y la salud y va estando más y más presente en el diagnóstico, tratamiento, monitorización y supervisión, así como en investigación. ...
  • Suitable task allocation in intelligent systems for assistive environments 

    Vinagre Ruiz, Manuel; Aranda López, Juan; Casals Gelpí, Alicia (Springer, 2020)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The growing need of technological assistance to provide support to people with special needs demands for systems more and more efficient and with better performances. With this aim, this work tries to advance in a multirobot ...

    Casals Gelpí, Alicia; Hernansanz Prats, Alberto; Sayols Baixeras, Narcís; Amat Girbau, Josep (Springer, 2020)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Robotizing laparoscopic surgery not only allows achieving better accuracy to operate when a scale factor is applied between master and slave or thanks to the use of tools with 3 DoF, which cannot be used in conventional ...
  • IK-FA, a new heuristic inverse kinematics solver using firefly algorithm 

    Rokbani, Nizar; Casals Gelpí, Alicia; Alimi, Adel M. (Springer, 2015-11-27)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    In this paper, a heuristic method based on Firefly Algorithm is proposed for inverse kinematics problems in articulated robotics. The proposal is called, IK-FA. Solving inverse kinematics, IK, consists in finding a set of ...
  • Evaluating spatial characteristics of upper-limb movements from EMG signals 

    Urra, Oiane; Casals Gelpí, Alicia; Jané Campos, Raimon (Springer, 2014)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Stroke is a major cause of disability, usually causing hemiplegic damage on the motor abilities of the patient. Stroke rehabilitation seeks restoring normal motion on the affected limb. However, ‘normality’ of movements ...
