    School is an essential context that contributes to children's communicative competence. Decision Support Systems (DSS) are tools that can help teachers to assess their own practice and to make decisions to improve it (Gregg, ...
  • Investigating the quality of SPSA and Spiess-like approaches forDynamic OD Matrix Estimation 

    Barceló Bugeda, Jaime; Ros-Roca, Xavier; Montero Mercadé, Lídia (2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Dynamic OD Estimation is usually formulated as bi-level problem where the objective function can not be evaluated analytically and thus the formulation relies on non-differentiable optimization methods that usually pivot ...

    A concrete classification algorithm may perform differently on datasets with different characteristics, e.g., it might perform better on a dataset with continuous attributes rather than with categorical attributes, or the ...
  • Simulation assessment of the new generation navigation strategies 

    Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Linares Herreros, María Paz; Casanovas Garcia, Josep; Recio Domenech, Gonzalo; Lorente, Ester; Salmeron Moya, Juan (2018)
    Conference lecture

    Probe vehicle data is becoming an important source of real-time travel information for a variety of intelligent transportation system applications. Since traditional sensors have significant installation and maintenance ...
  • Combining formal definition of a simulation model with heuristics to improve building sustainability 

    Fonseca Casas, Pau; Fonseca Casas, Antoni (2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Sustainability is related with environmental, social and economic variables. Each one of these areas is, by itself, complex due to the huge number of factors that one must analyze. Because of the combination of the levels ...
  • Fusing mobile phone data with other data sources to generate input OD matrices for transport models 

    Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Ros-Roca, Xavier; Herranz, Ricardo; Barceló Bugeda, Jaime (Elsevier, 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    OD matrices that describe mobility patterns provide major input to most transport analysis models. Since OD matrices are not yet directly observable, they are usually estimated indirectly. Data from new sources such as ...
  • Modelling and analysis of intermodal passenger operations in a cruise terminal to prevent traffic congestion and enhance quality of service using discrete event simulation 

    Figueras Jové, Jaume; Guasch Petit, Antonio; Casanovas Garcia, Josep (2018)
    Conference report

    In this paper we present a discrete event simulation model of a cruise terminal for decision support and strategic planning. The main objective is to provide an analysis tool for systems with high capacity constraints, ...
  • Investigating the performance of SPSA in simulation-optimization approaches to transportation problems 

    Ros-Roca, Xavier; Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Schneck, Arne; Jaume, Barceló (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    While optimization models play a key role in transportation analysis, the objective function to be optimized, however, cannot always be defined analytically. It is therefore necessary to resort to non-differentiable ...
  • Influence of fused deposition modeling (FDM) parameters on surface finish of plastic parts 

    Buj Corral, Irene; Marco Almagro, Lluís; Rodero de Lamo, Lourdes; Domínguez Fernandez, Alejandro (2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In the present paper, influence of FDM (fused deposition modeling) parameters on surface finish of printed parts is presented. Cylindrical specimens were printed in PLA (Polylactic Acid). Five variables ...

    Grau Saldes, Antoni; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Puig-Pey Clavería, Ana María; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Casanovas Garcia, Josep (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The objective of this paper is to explain novel sustainable robotics solutions for cities. Those new proposals appear under the ECHORD++ project which is a good tool to meet academia and industry with the objective of ...
  • Barcelona Virtual Mobility Lab: the multimodal transport simulation testbed for emerging mobility concepts evaluation 

    Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Linares Herreros, María Paz; Salmeron Moya, Juan; Recio, Gonzalo; Lorente, Ester; Vázquez, Juan José (International Academy, Research, and Industry Association (IARIA), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    New sustainable mobility concepts and smart resilient ideas are arising every day. However, there is not an easy way to bring these ideas into reality, or to test how good they are as mobility solutions. Virtual Mobility ...
