  • 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 ...
  • Context-aware human motion prediction 

    Corona Puyane, Enric; Pumarola Peris, Albert; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The problem of predicting human motion given a sequence of past observations is at the core of many applications in robotics and computer vision. Current state-of-the-art formulates this problem as a sequence-to-sequence ...
  • Ganhand: predicting human grasp affordances in multi-object scenes 

    Corona Puyane, Enric; Pumarola Peris, Albert; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Rogez, Grégory (2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The rise of deep learning has brought remarkable progress in estimating hand geometry from images where the hands are part of the scene. This paper focuses on a new problem not explored so far, consisting in predicting how ...
  • Behavioral-based autonomous robot operation under robot-central base loss of communication 

    Grau Saldes, Antoni; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco (Springer, Charm, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Robot navigation requires the use of a reliable map. Depending on the environment conditions, this map needs a constant update for a safe navigation. Autonomous robots use this map but at the same can contribute to the ...
  • High-speed event camera tracking 

    Chamorro Hernández, William Oswaldo; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Solà Ortega, Joan (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Event cameras are bioinspired sensors with reaction times in the order of microseconds. This property makes them appealing for use in highly-dynamic computer vision applications. In this work, we explore the limits of this ...
  • The use of symmetrical angle switched single- & 3-phase rectifiers in micro hydro power plants 

    Bory Prevez, Henry; Martínez García, Herminio; Vazquez Seisdedos, Luis; García Vílchez, Encarnación; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Micro-size hydro power plants (µHPPs) are commonly used at remote areas to supply islanded AC microgrids. A typical way to control grid frequency is to manipulate active power dissipated in ballast loads by AC/AC converters. ...
  • Feed-forward control for a drinking water treatment plant chlorination process 

    Gámiz Caro, Javier Francisco; Martínez García, Herminio; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Vilanova Arbós, Ramón (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Conference report
    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, ...
  • De la teoría a la práctica: 1011 años después de la integración de la sostenibilidad en el Grado en Ingeniería Informática de la FIB 

    Climent Vilaró, Joan; Cabré Garcia, José M.; Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; López Álvarez, David; Martín Escofet, Carme; Vidal López, Eva María; Bragós Bardia, Ramon (Asociación de Enseñantes Universitarios de la Informática (AENUI), 2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    En el año 2009, la Facultat d’Informàtica de Barcelona introdujo la sostenibilidad como una competen-cia transversal dentro de sus estudios de Grado en Ingeniería Informática. Han pasado once años desde entonces, y la forma ...
