    • Prolegómenos a una ética para la robótica social 

      Pareto Boada, Julia (2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      Social robotics has a high disruptive potential, for it expands the field of application of intelligent technology to practical contexts of a relational nature. Due to their capacity to “intersubjectively” interact with ...
    • Monocular visual SLAM based on a cooperative UAV–target system 

      Trujillo, Juan Carlos; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Sarquís Urzúa Cevallos, Isidro; Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-06-22)
      Article
      Open Access
      To obtain autonomy in applications that involve Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), the capacity of self-location and perception of the operational environment is a fundamental requirement. To this effect, GPS represents the ...
    • Fault-tolerant control based on virtual actuator and sensor for discrete-time descriptor systems 

      Wang, Ye; Rotondo, Damiano; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2020-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      This article proposes a fault-tolerant control (FTC) strategy based on virtual actuator and sensor for discrete-time descriptor systems subject to actuator and sensor faults. The fault-tolerant closed-loop system, which ...
    • Active fault detection based on set-membership approach for uncertain discrete-time systems 

      Wang, Jing; Shi, Yuru; Zhou, Meng; Wang, Ye; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2020-09-25)
      Article
      Open Access
      Active fault detection facilitates determination of the fault characteristics by injecting proper auxiliary input signals into the system. This article proposes an observer-based on-line active fault detection method for ...
    • Assessment of trunk flexion in arm reaching tasks with electromyography and smartphone accelerometry in healthy human subjects 

      Castillo Escario, Yolanda; Kumru, Hatice; Valls Solé, Josep; García Alen, Loreto; Vidal Samsó, Joan; Jané Campos, Raimon (Nature, 2021-03-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      Trunk stability is essential to maintain upright posture and support functional movements. In this study, we aimed to characterize the muscle activity and movement patterns of trunk flexion during an arm reaching task in ...
    • MMP1 drives tumor progression in large cell carcinoma of the lung through fibroblast senescence 

      Ikemori, Rafael; Llorente, A; Maqueda González, María de los Ángeles; Dávalos Errando, Antoni; Perera Lluna, Alexandre; Reguart, Noemí; Quiroz, Luis; Alcaraz Casademunt, Jordi (2021-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Large cell carcinoma (LCC) is a rare and aggressive lung cancer subtype with poor prognosis and no targeted therapies. Tumor-associated fibroblasts (TAFs) derived from LCC tumors exhibit premature senescence, and coculture ...
    • Monitoring blood potassium concentration in hemodialysis patients by quantifying T-wave morphology dynamics 

      Palmieri, Flavio; Gomis Román, Pedro; Ferreira, Dina; Ruiz, José Esteban; Bergasa, Beatriz; Martín-Yebra, Alba; Bukhari, H.A.; Pueyo Paules, Esther; Mártinez, Juan Pablo; Ramírez, Julia; Laguna, Pablo (Nature, 2021-02-16)
      Article
      Open Access
      We investigated the ability of time-warping-based ECG-derived markers of T-wave morphology changes in time (dw) and amplitude (da), as well as their non-linear components (dNLw and dNLa), and the heart rate corrected ...
    • Mitochondria and calcium defects correlate with axonal dysfunction in GDAP1-related Charcot-Marie-Tooth mouse model 

      Civera Tregón, Azahara; Benítez Iglesias, Raúl; Hoenicka, Janet; Palau, Francesc (2021-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      Ganglioside-induced differentiation associated protein 1 (GDAP1) gene encodes a protein of the mitochondrial outer membrane and of the mitochondrial membrane contacts with the endoplasmic reticulum (MAMs) and lysosomes. ...
    • Leak diagnosis in pipelines using a combined artificial neural network approach 

      Pérez Pérez, Esvan de Jesús; López Estrada, Francisco Ronay; Valencia Palomo, Guillermo; Torres González, Luis Daniel; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Mina Antonio, J. D. (2021-02-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Leakages in pipelines affect the reliability of fluid transport systems causing environmental damages, economic losses, and pressure reduction at the delivery points. Therefore, this paper presents a methodology to detect ...
    • Generating synthetic ecgs using gans for anonymizing healthcare data 

      Piacentino, Esteban; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Guarner Calaf, Alvaro Cristian (2021-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      In personalized healthcare, an ecosystem for the manipulation of reliable and safe private data should be orchestrated. This paper describes an approach for the generation of synthetic electrocardiograms (ECGs) based on ...
    • Sniffing speeds up chemical detection by controlling air-flows near sensors 

      Fonollosa Magrinyà, Jordi; Spencer, Thomas L.; Clark, Adams; Virot, Emmanuel; Hu, David L. (2021-12-01)
      Article
