    Mutations in the GDAP1 gene cause Charcot–Marie–Tooth (CMT) neuropathy. GDAP1 is an atypical glutathione S-transferase (GST) of the outer mitochondrial membrane and the mitochondrial membrane contacts with the endoplasmic ...
  • 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 ...
  • Chattering free sliding mode observer estimation of liquid water fraction in proton exchange membrane fuel cells 

    Luna Pacho, Julio; Costa Castelló, Ramon; Strahl, Stephan (2020-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The aim of this work is to deploy and experimentally validate a model-based strategy to estimate unmeasurable variables in a proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell. First, a nonlinear PEM fuel cell dynamical model is ...
  • Pollutant emissions and combustion efficiency assessment of engines using biodiesel 

    Paredes Rojas, Juan Carlos; Torres San Miguel, Christopher Rene; Vázquez Medina, Rubén; Leal Naranjo, Christopher Rene; Ortiz Hernandez, Fernando Eli; Costa Castelló, Ramon (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2020-12-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper evaluates the biodiesel produced by a biodiesel plant located in the Mexican Centre for Cleaner Production (CMP + L by its acronym in Spanish) of the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico. Pollutant emissions ...
  • Translational diagnostics: an in-house pipeline to validate genetic variants in children with undiagnosed and rare diseases 

    Pijuan Casas, Jordi; Rodríguez Sanz, Maica; Cortez, Carolina; Altimir, A; Afonso Rodriguez, Carmen Nieves; Benítez Iglesias, Raúl; do Nascimento, Anderson Thiago (2021-01-13)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Diagnosis is essential for the management and treatment of patients with rare diseases. In a group of patients, the genetic study identifies variants of uncertain significance or inconsistent with the phenotype; therefore, ...
  • Smart Sensors 

    Fonollosa Magrinyà, Jordi (Elsevier, 2020-06-02)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Calibration costs still limit the mass deployment of smart systems based on low-cost chemical sensors. Recent cost-efficient calibration strategies skip the acquisition of a full set of calibration samples when building ...
  • Combining bioimpedance and myographic signals for the assessment of COPD during loaded breathing 

    Blanco Almazán, María Dolores; Groenendaal, Willemijn; Lozano García, Manuel; Estrada Petrocelli, Luis Carlos; Lijnen, Lien; Smeets, Christophe; Catthoor, Francky; Jané Campos, Raimon (2020-05-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is one of the most common chronic conditions. The current assessment of COPD requires a maximal maneuver during a spirometry test to quantify airflow limitations of patients. ...
  • Pulsed-temperature metal oxide gas sensors for microwatt power consumption 

    Palacio Bonet, Francisco; Fonollosa Magrinyà, Jordi; Burgués Illa, Xavier; Gómez Cama, José Mª; Marco Colás, Santiago (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Metal Oxide (MOX) gas sensors rely on chemical reactions that occur efficiently at high temperatures, resulting in too-demanding power requirements for certain applications. Operating the sensor under a Pulsed-Temperature ...
  • Complex-valued sliding mode control of an induction motor 

    Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Olm Miras, Josep Maria; Repecho del Corral, Víctor; Biel Solé, Domingo (2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Three-phase induction motors admit a complex-valued space state representation. In this paper, this complex description is used to design a torque controller and a rotor flux observer based on sliding modes. The advantage ...
  • Numerical modeling of underwater noise induced by shipping traffic in the Balearic Sea 

    Castro Alves Oliveira, Tiago; Fonollosa Magrinyà, Jordi; Mujal Colilles, Anna (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a novel methodology to model theunderwater noise induced by ship traffic in the Balearic Sea. Inthis regard, a three-dimensional underwater sound propagationmodel is used with realistic time-dependent physical ...
