    This paper presents an accurate and robust tracking vision algorithm for Fetoscopic Laser Photo-coagulation (FLP) surgery for Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS). The aim of the proposed method is to assist surgeons ...
  • SENTISIM: A hybrid training platform for SLNB in local melanoma staging 

    Hernansanz Prats, Alberto; Pieras Morell, Tomas; Ferrandiz Pulido, Lara; Moreno Ramirez, David; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (Università degli Studi di Genova, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB) has been established as an accurate procedure for regional melanoma staging. SNLB has a diagnostic significance as biopsy-based staging identifies patients with nodal metastases who may ...

    La creciente demanda de soporte tecnológico para la asistencia a personas con necesidades especiales obliga a avanzar tecnológi-camente hacia sistemas más eficientes y con más prestaciones. En esta íinea, en este artículo ...
  • Robust fault detection of non-linear systems using set-membership state estimation based on constraint satisfaction 

    Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Escobet Canal, Teresa (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, the robust fault detection problem for non-linear systems considering both bounded parametric modelling errors and measurement noises is addressed. The non-linear system is monitored by using a state estimator ...
  • Design of state-feedback controllers for linear parameter varying systems subject to time-varying input saturation 

    Ruiz Royo, Adrián; Rotondo, Damiano; Morcego Seix, Bernardo (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    All real-world systems are affected by the saturation phenomenon due to inherent physical limitations of actuators. These limitations should be taken into account in the controller’s design to prevent a possibly severe ...
  • Entropy measures as descriptors to identify apneas in rheoencephalographic signals 

    González Pijuán, Carmen; Jensen, Erik Weber; Gambus, Pedro L.; Vallverdú Ferrer, Montserrat (2019-06-18)
    Article
    Open Access
    Rheoencephalography (REG) is a simple and inexpensive technique that intends to monitor cerebral blood flow (CBF), but its ability to reflect CBF changes has not been extensively proved. Based on the hypothesis that ...
  • Sliding mode control of a differential-drive mobile robot following a path 

    Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Biel Solé, Domingo; Olm Miras, Josep Maria; Repecho del Corral, Víctor (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a control algorithm for a differential-drive robot following a path. The main contributions are: a new control formulation that does not require the robot global position, and a nonlinear controller ...
  • A Survey of path following control strategies for UAVs focused on quadrotors 

    Rubí Perelló, Bartomeu; Pérez Magrané, Ramon; Morcego Seix, Bernardo (2019-11-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    The trajectory control problem, defined as making a vehicle follow a pre-established path in space, can be solved by means of trajectory tracking or path following. In the trajectory tracking problem a timed reference ...
  • Optimal voltage-support control for distributed generation inverters in RL grid-faulty networks 

    Garnica López, Miguel Andrés; García de Vicuña Muñoz de la Nava, José Luis; Miret Tomàs, Jaume; Castilla Fernández, Miguel; Guzmán Solà, Ramon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-10-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    During grid faults, the stability and reliability of the network are compromised, and the risk of a widespread disconnection of distributed generation power facilities is increased. Distributed generation inverters must ...
  • Experimental validation of a continuous-time MCSI algorithm with bounded adaptive gains 

    Montanaro, Umberto; Costa Castelló, Ramon; Olm Miras, Josep Maria; Larco Barros, Ciro (2019-08-01)
    Article

    Model reference adaptive control algorithms with minimal controller synthesis have proven to be an effective solution to tame the behaviour of linear systems subject to unknown or time-varying parameters, unmodelled dynamics ...
  • Effects and mechanisms of cognitive, aerobic exercise, and combined training on cognition, health, and brain outcomes in physically inactive older adults: the projecte moviment protocol 

    Castells Sánchez, Alba; Roig Coll, Francesca; Lamonja Vicente, Noemí; Perera Lluna, Alexandre (2019-08-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    Age-related health, brain, and cognitive impairment is a great challenge in current society. Cognitive training, aerobic exercise and their combination have been shown to benefit health, brain, cognition and psychological ...
  • Price and carbon-based energy flexibility of residential heating and cooling loads using model predictive control 

    Péan, Thibaut; Costa Castelló, Ramon; Salom, Jaume (Elsevier, 2019-10-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Model predictive controllers (MPC) have shown great potential for activating the energy flexibility of thermal loads, especially in buildings equipped with heat pump systems. In this work, an MPC controller is developed ...
