  • Multi–layer health–aware economic predictive control of a pasteurization pilot plant 

    Karimi Pour, Fatemeh; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2018)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper proposes two different health-aware economic predictive control strategies that aim at minimizing the damage of components in a pasteurization plant. The damage is assessed with a rainflow-counting algorithm ...

    This paper analyzes children’s imaginaries of Human-Robots Interaction (HRI) in the context of social robots in healthcare, and it explores ethical and social issues when designing a social robot for a children’s hospital. ...
  • Reducing the cogging torque effects in hybrid stepper machines by means of resonant controllers 

    Arias Pujol, Antoni; Caum Aregay, Jesús; Ibarra Basabe, Edorta; Griñó Cubero, Robert (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-06-11)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Permanent magnet machines are not free from the interaction between magnets and the stator and rotor slots, which causes an undesired disturbing torque. Such cogging or detent torque is especially larger with salient pole ...
  • Centralised and distributed command governor approaches for water supply systems management 

    Tedesco, Francesco; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Cassavola, Alessandro; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper evaluates the applicability of Command Governor (CG) strategies to the optimal management of Drinking Water Supply Systems (DWSS) in both centralized and distributed ways. It will be shown that CG approaches ...

    Foix Salmerón, Sergi; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2018-04-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This article presents a new method for actively exploring a 3D workspace with the aim of localizing relevant regions for a given task. Our method encodes the exploration route in a multi-layer occupancy grid map. This map, ...
  • Teaching robot's proactive behavior using human assistance 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2017-04-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In recent years, there has been a growing interest in enabling autonomous social robots to interact with people. However, many questions remain unresolved regarding the social capabilities robots should have in order to ...
  • Observer-based sensor fault detectability: about robust positive invariance approach and residual sensitivity 

    Rahman Kodakkadan, Abid; Pourasgharlafmejani, Masoud; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Olaru, Sorin; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Reppa, Vasso (2017-07-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper considers detectability of deviation of sensors from their nominal behavior for a class of linear time-invariant discrete-time systems in the presence of bounded additive uncertainties. Detectable sensor faults ...
  • On the communication discussion of two distributed population-game approaches for optimization purposes 

    Barreiro-Gómez, Julián; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Quijano Silva, Nicanor (2017-07-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Population games have become a powerful tool for solving resource-allocation problems in a distributed manner, and for the design of non-centralized optimization-based controllers. The aim of this paper is to illustrate ...
  • Calibration transfer and drift counteraction in chemical sensor arrays using direct standardization 

    Fonollosa Magrinyà, Jordi; Fernandez, Luis; Gutiérrez-Gálvez, Agustín; Huerta, Ramon; Marco, Santiago (2016-05-18)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Inherent variability of chemical sensors makes it necessary to calibrate chemical detection systems individually. This shortcoming has traditionally limited usability of systems based on metal oxide gas sensor arrays and ...
