    The aim of this paper is to analyze muscle load-sharing in patients with Lateral Epicondylitis during dynamic endurance contractions by means of non-linear prediction of surface EMG signals. The proposed non-linear ...
  • Adaptive nonlinear guidance law using neural networks applied to a quadrotor 

    Rubí Perelló, Bartomeu; Morcego Seix, Bernardo; Pérez Magrané, Ramon (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The NonLinear Guidance Law (NLGL) is a geometric algorithm commonly employed to solve the path following problem on different unmanned vehicles. NLGL is simple (does no depend on the model of the vehicle), effective and ...
  • Closed-loop shaping linear control system design: an interactive teaching/learning approach [focus on education] 

    Díaz Martínez, José Manuel; Costa Castelló, Ramon; Dormido Bencomo, Sebastián (2019-10-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The frequency domain is one of the most popular and powerful frameworks for designing control systems. Usually, the controller is designed by working on the openloop transfer function. However, it is also possible to design ...
  • Onset detection to study muscle activity in reaching and grasping movements in rats 

    Castillo Escario, Yolanda; Rodríguez Cañón, María; García Alías, Guillermo; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    EMG signals reflect the neuromuscular activation patterns related to the execution of a certain movement or task. In this work, we focus on reaching and grasping (R&G) movements in rats. Our objective is to develop an ...
