    • 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 ...
