  • 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 ...
  • Outdoor delayed-state visually augmented odometry 

    Illa, Viorela Simona; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (IFAC, 2007)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents an efficient approach to outdoor visually augmented odometry. The technique computes relative pose constraints via a robust least squares minimisation of 3D point correspondences, which are in turn ...
  • Vision-based loop closing for delayed state robot mapping 

    Illa, Viorela Simona; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Valencia Carreño, Rafael; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2007)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper shows results on outdoor vision-based loop closing for Simultaneous Localization and Mapping. Our experiments show that for loops of over 50m, the pose estimates maintained with a Delayed-State Extended Information ...
  • Dynamic equations of motion for a 3-bar tensegrity based mobile robot 

    Mirats Tur, Josep Maria; Hernández Juan, Sergi; Graells Rovira, Albert (2007)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Tensegrity structures can give a new approach to the construction of mobile robots with different shapes and properties that usual robots, wheeled or legged, do not have. Tensegrity are light, deformable structures that ...
  • 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 ...
  • Human-robot collaborative navigation search using social reward sources 

    Dalmasso Blanch, Marc; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Jimenez Schlegl, Pablo; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a Social Reward Sources (SRS) design for a Human-Robot Collaborative Navigation (HRCN) task: human-robot collaborative search. It is a flexible approach capable of handling the collaborative task, ...
  • Effects of a social force model reward in robot navigation based on deep reinforcement learning 

    Gil Viyuela, Óscar; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper is proposed an inclusion of the Social Force Model (SFM) into a concrete Deep Reinforcement Learning (RL) framework for robot navigation. These types of techniques have demonstrated to be useful to deal with ...
  • Timed-elastic smooth curve optimization for mobile-base motion planning 

    Deray, Jeremie; Magyar, Bence; Solà Ortega, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes the use of piecewise Cn smooth curve for mobile-base motion planning and control, coined Timed-Elastic Smooth Curve (TESC) planner. Based on a Timed-Elastic Band, the problem is defined so that the ...
  • People's V-formation and side-by-side model adapted to accompany groups of people by social robots 

    Repiso Polo, Ely; Zanlungo, Francesco; Kanda, Takayuki; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a new method to allow robots to accompany a person or a group of people imitating pedestrians behavior. Two-people groups usually walk in a side-by-side formation and three-people groups walk in a ...
