    • Track detection in railway sidings based on MEMS gyroscope sensors 

      Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Gelonch Bosch, Antonio José; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª; Castro Fernández, José Antonio; Felip, Damià; López Márquez, Miguel Ángel; Pulido, Jose Antonio (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2012-11-23)
      Article
      Open Access
      The paper presents a two-step technique for real-time track detection in single-track railway sidings using low-cost MEMS gyroscopes. The objective is to reliably know the path the train has taken in a switch, diverted or ...
    • Absolute-type shaft encoding using LFSR sequences with a prescribed length 

      Fuertes Armengol, José Mª; Balle Pigem, Borja de; Ventura Capell, Enric (2008-03-31)
      Article
      Open Access
      Maximal-length binary sequences have existed for a long time. They have many interesting properties, and one of them is that, when taken in blocks of n consecutive positions, they form 2n - 1 different codes in a closed ...

      Maximal-length binary sequences have been known for a long time. They have many interesting properties, one of them is that when taken in blocks of n consecutive positions they form 2 n ° 1 diÆerent codes in a ...
    • Toward new controller design paradigms in networked control systems 

      Torres Guerrero, Gina; Velasco García, Manel; Martí Colom, Pau; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      One of the main concerns in the design of networked control systems (NCS’s) is the inherent delays induced by the networking infrastructure. Rather than considering delays as a threat, delays may be considered as an ...
    • Developing professional skills at tertiary level: A model to integrate competencies across the curriculum 

      Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; Soler Cervera, Antonia; López Álvarez, David; Martín Escofet, Carme; Ageno Pulido, Alicia; Belanche Muñoz, Luis Antonio; Cabré Garcia, José M.; Cobo Valeri, Erik; Farré Cirera, Rafael; García Almiñana, Jordi; Marès Martí, Pere (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      In the context of the European Higher Education Area, curriculum design needs to be based on the defined competencies of each degree programs, including both domain specific and professional competencies. In this educational ...
    • LTI ODE-valued neural networks 

      Velasco García, Manel; Martín Rull, Enric Xavier; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Martí Colom, Pau (2014-05)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A dynamical version of the classical McCulloch & Pitts’ neural model is introduced in this paper. In this new approach, artificial neurons are characterized by: i) inputs in the form of differentiable continuous-time ...
    • Mixing local and distributed reactive power control for balancing inverters' effort in grid-connected photovoltaic systems

      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Reactive power control methods have been proven to be a successful technique for maintaining voltages of photovoltaic (PV) distributed generators (DG) within the admissible limits without enforcing to reduce the production ...
    • De la farola urbana hacia un elemento urbano multifuncional 

      Ruiz, Fèlix; Farré, Josep; Martí Colom, Pau; Martínez Antúnez, Nora Isabel; Llorens García, Ariadna (2014-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Se està produciendo un cambio de paradigma, un cambio de concepto de la farola tradicional, transformándose en otra cosa diferente, en el nodo urbano. Esto supone un nuevo paso en la línea de las smart cities. Los autores ...
    • Holistic indices for productivity control assessment, applied to the comparative analysis of PID and fuzzy controllers within an Isasmelt furnace 

      Ojeda Sarmiento, Juan Manuel; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª; Griful Ponsati, Eulàlia (2014-02-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This research aims to contribute to the analysis of control performance assessment in extractive metallurgy. Productivity-based indices are proposed in addition to current measuring techniques. Such criteria are employed ...
