      Trujillo, Juan Carlos; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Sarquís Urzúa Cevallos, Isidro; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-06-22)
      Article
      Open Access
      To obtain autonomy in applications that involve Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), the capacity of self-location and perception of the operational environment is a fundamental requirement. To this effect, GPS represents the ...
    • Design and implementation of a virtual sensor network for smart waste water monitoring 

      Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Gámiz Caro, Javier Francisco; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-01-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      A high density virtual sensor network has been designed to robotize sampling tasks associated with monitoring of water treatment plant with open air basins. The designed virtual network is to be actually implemented by a ...
    • Fuzzy gain scheduling and feed–forward control for drinking water treatment plants (DWTP) chlorination process 

      Gámiz Caro, Javier Francisco; Vilanova Arbós, Ramón; Martínez García, Herminio; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-06-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      Chlorination in drinking water treatment plants (DWTP) is the final process applied to water before it is sent to storage tanks in the supply network for subsequent human consumption. An excessive dosage of chlorine or, ...
    • Collaborative-AI: Social robots accompanying and approaching people 

      Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Repiso Polo, Ely; Garrell Zulueta, Anais (CEUR-WS.org, 2020)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Collaborative AI to approach or to accompany people using social robots will be a fundamental robotics field in the near future. If we desire to share and to collaborate with social robots during the development of our ...
    • Sampling operation with robotic UAV 

      Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco (2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      This work presents a solution to automatize sampling tasks in a wastewater treatment plant with open air basins. At the behest of human operators, a set of UAVs managed as a network of autonomous agents will perform sample ...
    • Towards robust 6-DoF detection in uncontrolled lightning enviroments 

      Mora, Alejandro; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Manzanares Brotons, Manuel; Grau Saldes, Antoni (2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      One of the most critical issues that arises when controlling a robot is the necessity to locate itself in the environment. Ranging from industrial processes applications to outdoor mobile robots, landmarks are used to such ...
    • C-Flow: conditional generative flow models for images and 3D point clouds 

      Pumarola Peris, Albert; Popov, Stefan; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Ferrari, Vittorio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Flow-based generative models have highly desirable properties like exact log-likelihood evaluation and exact latent-variable inference, however they are still in their infancy and have not received as much attention as ...
    • Robotic monocular SLAM in wastewater treatment plants with a sampling device 

      Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Springer, Charm, 2019)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      A novel application is presented in this paper. Wastewater treatment plants need to sample water to follow the cleaned process continuously. This task is very tedious for laboratory workers and, mainly, can be done in ...
    • Technological advances for intelligent vehicles: shared control in highly complex contexts and the automation of transport in segregated environments 

      Villagra, Jorge; Vallvé Navarro, Joan; Medina Lee, Juan; Solà Ortega, Joan; Artuñedo, Antonio; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Instituto de Carboquímica, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      To make autonomous driving a mass reality in cities there are still important technological barriers to be solved. It is therefore foreseeable that its implementation will be gradual, prioritising its appearance in operational ...
    • Adaptive side-by-side social robot navigation to approach and interact with people 

      Repiso Polo, Ely; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2020-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper presents a new framework for how autonomous social robots approach and accompany people in urban environments. The method discussed allows the robot to accompany a person and approach to other one, by adapting ...
    • People's adaptive side-by-side model evolved to accompany groups of people by social robots 

      Repiso Polo, Ely; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-04-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The presented method implements a robot accompaniment in an adaptive side-by-side formation of a single person or a group of people. The method enhances our previous robot adaptive side-by-side behavior allowing the robot ...
