  • Fault detection and fault tolerant control in wind turbines 

    Tutivén Gálvez, Christian (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-09-27)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Renewable energy is an important sustainable energy in the world. Up to now, as an essential part of low emissions energy in a lot of countries, renewable energy has been important to the national energy security, and ...
  • A template based approach for human action recognition 

    Carmona Leyva, Josep Maria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06-19)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Visual analysis of human movements concerns the understanding of human activities from image sequences. The goal of the action/gesture recognition is to recognize the label that corresponds to an action or gesture made by ...
  • Bimanual robot skills: MP encoding, dimensionality reduction and reinforcement learning 

    Colomé Figueras, Adrià (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07-14)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    In our culture, robots have been in novels and cinema for a long time, but it has been specially in the last two decades when the improvements in hardware - better computational power and components - and advances in ...
  • The role of population games in the design of optimization-based controllers: a large-scale insight 

    Barreiro Gómez, Julián (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-05-17)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Realitzat a/amb:  Universidad de los Andes (Colombia)
    This thesis is mainly devoted to the study of the role of evolutionary-game theory in the design of distributed optimization-based controllers. Game theoretical approaches have been used in several engineering fields, e.g., ...
  • Estimating and understanding motion : from diagnostic to robotic surgery 

    Avilés Rivero, Angélica Ivone (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-05-18)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Estimating and understanding motion from an image sequence is a central topic in computer vision. The high interest in this topic is because we are living in a world where many events that occur in the environment are ...
  • Prognostics and health aware model predictive control of wind turbines 

    Sánchez Sardi, Héctor Eloy (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07-21)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Wind turbines components are subject to considerable stresses and fatigue due to extreme environmental conditions to which they are exposed, especially those located offshore. Also, the most common faults present in wind ...
  • Searching and tracking of humans in urban environments with humanoid robots 

    Goldhoorn, Alex (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-09-21)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Searching and tracking are important behaviours for a mobile service robot to assist people, to search-and-rescue and, in general, to locate mobile objects, animals or humans. Even though searching might be evident for ...
  • Visual guidance of unmanned aerial manipulators 

    Santamaria Navarro, Àngel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-04-24)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    The ability to fly has greatly expanded the possibilities for robots to perform surveillance, inspection or map generation tasks. Yet it was only in recent years that research in aerial robotics was mature enough to allow ...
  • Development of control systems and state observers for efficiency and durability improvement in PEM fuel cell based systems 

    Luna Pacho, Julio Alberto (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-02-27)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, which use hydrogen as fuel, provide high power densities while operating at lower temperatures, reducing the cost of materials and maintenance. PEM fuel cells are suitable for a ...
  • Learning relational models with human interaction for planning in robotics 

    Martínez Martínez, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-02-21)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Automated planning has proven to be useful to solve problems where an agent has to maximize a reward function by executing actions. As planners have been improved to salve more expressive and difficult problems, there is ...
  • Monocular SLAM : data association and sensing through a human-assisted uncalibrated visual system 

    Guerra Paradas, Edmundo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07-17)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    The Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) problem is widely acknowledged as one of the fundamental problem to solve in perception and robotics to produce actual mobile robotic agents. The problem itself is that of ...
