  • Evaluation of respiratory muscle activity by means of concentric ring electrodes 

    Estrada Petrocelli, Luis Carlos; Torres Cebrián, Abel; Jané Campos, Raimon (2021-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Surface electromyography (sEMG) can be used for the evaluation of respiratory muscle activity. Recording sEMG involves the use of surface electrodes in a bipolar configuration. However, electrocardiographic (ECG) interference ...
  • Input design for active detection of integrity attacks using set-based approach 

    Trapiello Fernández, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents the design of an input sequence in order to actively guarantee detectabilityof integrity attacks. The design of the input sequence is formulated as an optimization problemwhere the performance ...
  • Thermal effects of a sonic jet fire impingement on a pipe 

    Foroughi, Vahid; Palacios Rosas, Adriana; Barraza, C; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2021-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Although the effects of jet fires are often limited to rather short distances, if their flames impinge on a pipe or a vessel collapse can occur in very short times. In such cases, the heat flux on the affected equipment ...
  • Robots in industry: The past, present and future of a growing collaboration with humans 

    Grau Saldes, Antoni; Indri, Marina; Lo Bello, Lucia; Sauter, Thilo (2021-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robots have been part of automation systems for a very long time, and in public perception, they are often synonymous with automation and industrial revolution perse. Fueled by Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT) ...
  • Multi-task closed-loop inverse kinematics stability through semidefinite programming 

    Martí Saumell, Josep; Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Today’s complex robotic designs comprise in some cases a large number of degrees of freedom, enabling for multi-objective task resolution (e.g., humanoid robots or aerial manipulators). This paper tackles the stability ...
  • Ca2+-CaM Dependent Inactivation of RyR2 Underlies Ca2+ Alternans in Intact Heart 

    Guo, Wenting; Benítez Iglesias, Raúl; Hove-Madsen, Leif; Álvarez Lacalle, Enrique; Echebarría Domínguez, Blas (2021-02-19)
    Article
    Open Access
    Rationale: Ca2+ alternans plays an essential role in cardiac alternans that can lead to ventricular fibrillation, but the mechanism underlying Ca2+ alternans remains undefined. Increasing evidence suggests that Ca2+ ...
  • Cardiac ryanodine receptor calcium release deficiency syndrome 

    Guo, Wenting; Benítez Iglesias, Raúl; Hove-Madsen, Leif (2021-02-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2) gain-of-function mutations cause catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, a condition characterized by prominent ventricular ectopy in response to catecholamine stress, which ...
  • WiWeHAR: multimodal human activity recognition using Wi-Fi and wearable sensing modalities 

    Muaaz, Muhammad; Chelli, Ali; Abdelgawwad, Ahmed Abdelmonem; Català Mallofré, Andreu; Pätzold, Matthias (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-09-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robust and accurate human activity recognition (HAR) systems are essential to many human-centric services within active assisted living and healthcare facilities. Traditional HAR systems mostly leverage a single sensing ...

    Leporini, Alice; Oleari, Elettra; Landolfo, Carmela; Sanna, Alberto; Larcher, Alessandro; Gandaglia, Giorgio; Fossati, Nicola; Muttin, Fabio; Capitanio, Umberto; Montorsi, Francesco; Sayols Baixeras, Narcís; Hernansanz Prats, Alberto; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (2020-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    Nowadays Robotic assisted Minimally Invasive Surgeries (R-MIS) are the elective procedures for treating highly accurate and scarcely invasive pathologies, thanks to their ability to empower surgeons’ dexterity and skills. ...
  • Integration of a testbench for the optical and thermal characterization of near-infrared detectors used in ground and space-based astronomy 

    Jimenez Rojas, Jorge; Grau Saldes, Antoni; Padilla Aranda, Cristóbal (2021)
    Article
    Open Access
    The mercury–cadmium–tellurium (MCT) sensors are considered the ideal infrared detectors to equip the focal plane arrays (FPAs) of astronomical scientific missions. To tackle Europe to be self-sufficient on this technology ...
  • Active power sharing and frequency regulation in droop-free control for islanded microgrids under electrical and communication failures 

    Rosero Chandi, Carlos Xavier; Velasco García, Manel; Martí Colom, Pau; Camacho Santiago, Antonio; Miret Tomàs, Jaume; Castilla Fernández, Miguel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The droop-free control for ac microgrids achieves active power sharing and frequency regulation by replacing the centralized secondary control and the primary-level droop mechanism by a cooperative distributed control ...
