  • Geometry-aware network for non-rigid shape prediction from a single view 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Porzi, Lorenzo; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Lepetit, Vincent; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We propose a method for predicting the 3D shape of a deformable surface from a single view. By contrast with previous approaches, we do not need a pre-registered template of the surface, and our method is robust to the ...
  • Unsupervised person image synthesis in arbitrary poses 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a novel approach for synthesizing photo-realistic images of people in arbitrary poses using generative adversarial learning. Given an input image of a person and a desired pose represented by a 2D skeleton, our ...
  • Hallucinating dense optical flow from sparse lidar for autonomous vehicles 

    Vaquero Gómez, Víctor; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we propose a novel approach to estimate dense optical flow from sparse lidar data acquired on an autonomous vehicle. This is intended to be used as a drop-in replacement of any image-based optical flow system ...
  • Considering the anchoring problem in robotic intelligent bin picking 

    Escudero Rodrigo, Diego; Alquézar Mancho, René (IOS Press, 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Random Bin Picking means the selection by a robot of a particular item from a container (or bin) in which there are many items randomly distributed. Generalist robots and the Anchoring Problem should be considered if we ...
  • Robot approaching and engaging people in a human-robot companion framework 

    Repiso Polo, Ely; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a new model to make robots capable of approaching and engaging people with a human-like behavior, while they are walking in a side-by-side formation with a person. This method extends our previous work ...
  • GANimation: anatomically-aware facial animation from a single image 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Martinez, Aleix M.; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Springer, 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Recent advances in Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) have shown impressive results for task of facial expression synthesis. The most successful architecture is StarGAN, that conditions GANs' generation process with ...
  • Deep lidar CNN to understand the dynamics of moving vehicles 

    Vaquero Gómez, Víctor; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Perception technologies in Autonomous Driving are experiencing their golden age due to the advances in Deep Learning. Yet, most of these systems rely on the semantically rich information of RGB images. Deep Learning solutions ...
  • Sustainable robotics solutions in smart cities: The challenge of the ECHORD++ Project 

    Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Puig-Pey Clavería, Ana María; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Casanovas Garcia, Josep (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The objective of this paper is to explain novel sustainable robotics solutions for cities. Those new proposals appear under the ECHORD++ project which is a good tool to meet academia and industry with the objective of ...
  • Estudio cuantitativo del nivel de competencias transversales de los estudiantes del Grado en Ingeniería Informática 

    Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; Ageno Pulido, Alicia; Aranda López, Juan; Cabré Garcia, José M.; Climent Vilaró, Joan; Gibert, Karina; Gil Martín, Joan Carles; Martín Escofet, Carme (Asociación de Enseñantes Universitarios de la Informática (AENUI), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    La reciente introducción de las competencias transversales en los planes de estudios justifica la falta de investigaciones cuantitativas que evalúen, entre otros aspectos, el grado de adquisición de las mismas por parte ...
  • An innovative ICT solution for sewer systems 

    Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Puig-Pey Clavería, Ana María (EasyChair Publications, 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The objective of this paper is to explain the importance of research in wastewater transportation (sewage systems) using new technologies such as robotics systems and information and communication technologies (ICTs). ...
  • Aventuras y desventuras de un informe de sostenibilidad 

    Cabré Garcia, José M.; Climent Vilaró, Joan; Vidal López, Eva María; Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; López Álvarez, David; Martín Escofet, Carme (2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    La introducción de la competencia sostenibilidad en los estudios de ingeniería no está resultando fácil. Paradójicamente, esto sucede en un escenario en el que el desarrollo de la competencia sostenibilidad resulta vital ...
  • Humanoid seminar assessment in high technological studies
