  Title Facts and Perceptions Regarding Software Measurement in Education and in Practice: Preliminary Results Type Journal Article
  Year 2011 Publication Journal of Software Engineering and Application Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 227-234  
  Keywords Software measurement, education, software engineering  
  Abstract (up) How is software measurement addressed in undergraduate and graduate programs in universities? Do organizations consider that the graduating students they hire have an adequate knowledge of software measurement? To answer these and related questions, a survey was administered to participants who attended the IWSM-MENSURA 2010 conference in Stuttgart, Germany. Forty-seven of the 69 conference participants (including software development practitioners, software measurement consultants, university professors, and graduate students) took part in the survey. The results indicate that software measurement topics are: A) covered mostly at the graduate level and not at the undergraduate level, and B) not mandatory. Graduate students and professors consider that, of the measurement topics covered in university curricula, specific topics, such as measures for the requirements phase, and measurement techniques and tools, receive more attention in the academic context. A common observation of the practitioners who participated in the survey was that students hired as new employees bring limited software measurement-related knowledge to their organizations. Discussion of the findings and directions for future research are presented.

  Title Visual Metrics for Educational Videogames Linked to Socially Assistive Robots in an Inclusive Education Framework Type Conference Article
  Year 2022 Publication Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies. International Conference in Information Technology & Education (ICITED 21), julio 15-17 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 256 Issue Pages 119-132  
  Keywords  
  Abstract (up) In gamification, the development of “visual metrics for educational

video games linked to social assistance robots in the framework of inclusive education” seeks to provide support, not only to regular children but also to children with specific psychosocial disabilities, such as those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, personalizing each child's experiences represents a limitation, especially for those with atypical behaviors. 'LOLY,' a social assistance robot, works together with mobile applications associated with the family of educational video game series called 'MIDI-AM,' forming a social robotic platform. This platform offers the user curricular digital content to reinforce the teaching-learning processes and motivate regular children and those with ASD. In the present study, technical, programmatic experiments and focus groups were carried out, using open-source facial recognition algorithms to monitor and evaluate the degree of user attention throughout the interaction. The objective is to evaluate the management of a social robot linked to educational video games

through established metrics, which allow monitoring the user's facial expressions

during its use and define a scenario that ensures consistency in the results for its applicability in therapies and reinforcement in the teaching process, mainly

adaptable for inclusive early childhood education.

  Title Concurrent Learning of Visual Codebooks and Object Categories in Open- ended Domains Type Conference Article
  Year 2015 Publication Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), 2015 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on, Hamburg, Germany, 2015 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 2488 - 2495  
  Keywords Birds, Training, Legged locomotion, Visualization, Histograms, Object recognition, Gaussian mixture model  
  Abstract (up) In open-ended domains, robots must continuously learn new object categories. When the training sets are created offline, it is not possible to ensure their representativeness with respect to the object categories and features the system will find when operating online. In the Bag of Words model, visual codebooks are usually constructed from training sets created offline. This might lead to non-discriminative visual words and, as a consequence, to poor recognition performance. This paper proposes a visual object recognition system which concurrently learns in an incremental and online fashion both the visual object category representations as well as the codebook words used to encode them. The codebook is defined using Gaussian Mixture Models which are updated using new object views. The approach contains similarities with the human visual object recognition system: evidence suggests that the development of recognition capabilities occurs on multiple levels and is sustained over large periods of time. Results show that the proposed system with concurrent learning of object categories and codebooks is capable of learning more categories, requiring less examples, and with similar accuracies, when compared to the classical Bag of Words approach using codebooks constructed offline.

  Title A Week-long Study on Robot-Visitors Spatial Relationships during Guidance in a Sciences Museum Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 152-153  
  Keywords social human-robot interaction, spatial relationships, proxemics behavior  
  Abstract (up) In order to observe spatial relationships in social human- robot interactions, a field trial was carried out within the CosmoCaixa Science Museum in Barcelona. The follow me episodes studied showed that the space configurations formed by guide and visitors walking together did not always fit the robot social affordances and navigation requirements to perform the guidance successfully, thus additional commu- nication prompts are considered to regulate effectively the walking together and follow me behaviors.

  Title Sensor Fault Detection and Diagnosis for autonomous vehicles Type Conference Article
  Year 2015 Publication 2nd International Conference on Mechatronics, Automation and Manufacturing (ICMAM 2015), International Conference on, Singapur, 2015 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 30 Issue MATEC Web of Conferences Pages 1-6  
  Keywords  
  Abstract (up) In recent years testing autonomous vehicles on public roads has become a reality. However, before having autonomous vehicles completely accepted on the roads, they have to demonstrate safe operation and reliable interaction with other traffic participants. Furthermore, in real situations and long term operation, there is always the possibility that diverse components may fail. This paper deals with possible sensor faults by defining a federated sensor data fusion architecture. The proposed architecture is designed to detect obstacles in an autonomous vehicle’s environment while detecting a faulty sensor using SVM models for fault detection and diagnosis. Experimental results using sensor information from the KITTI dataset confirm the feasibility of the proposed architecture to detect soft and hard faults from a particular sensor.

  Title Experts Agents in PEM Fuel Cell Control Type Conference Article
  Year 2015 Publication 4ta International Conference on Renewable Energy Research and Applications Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 896 - 900  
  Keywords s- PEM Fuel Cell; Expert Agent; Perceptive Agents; Acting Agent; Fuzzy Controller  
  Abstract (up) In the control of the PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cell, the existence of both deliberative and reactive processes that facilitate the tasks of control resulting from a wide range of operating scenarios and range of conditions it is required. The latter is essential to adjust its parameters to the multiplicity of circumstances that may occur in the operation of the PEM stack. In this context, the design and development of an expert-agents based architecture for autonomous control of the PEM stack in top working conditions is presented. The architecture integrates perception and control algorithms using sensory and context information. It is structured in a hierarchy of levels with different time window and level of abstraction. The monitoring model and autonomic control of PEM stack has been validated with different types of PEM stacks and operating conditions demonstrating high reliability in achieving the objective of the proposed energy efficiency. Dynamic control of the wetting of the membrane is a clear example.
