  Title Lateral confinement of high-impedance surface-waves through reinforcement learning Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Electronics Letters Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Vol. 56 Issue 23, 12 November 2020 Pages pp. 1262-1264  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The authors present a model-free policy-based reinforcement learning

model that introduces perturbations on the pattern of a metasurface.

The objective is to learn a policy that changes the size of the

patches, and therefore the impedance in the sides of an artificially structured

material. The proposed iterative model assigns the highest reward

when the patch sizes allow the transmission along a constrained path

and penalties when the patch sizes make the surface wave radiate to

the sides of the metamaterial. After convergence, the proposed

model learns an optimal patch pattern that achieves lateral confinement

along the metasurface. Simulation results show that the proposed

learned-pattern can effectively guide the electromagnetic wave

through a metasurface, maintaining its instantaneous eigenstate when

the homogeneity is perturbed. Moreover, the pattern learned to

prevent reflections by changing the patch sizes adiabatically. The

reflection coefficient S1, 2 shows that most of the power gets transferred

from the source to the destination with the proposed design.

  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 pp. 227-234  
  Keywords Software measurement, education, software engineering  
  Abstract 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 Organ identification on shrimp histological images: A comparative study considering CNN and feature engineering. Type Conference Article
  Year 2018 Publication IEEE Ecuador Technical Chapters Meeting ETCM 2018. Cuenca, Ecuador Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 1-6  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The identification of shrimp organs in biology using

histological images is a complex task. Shrimp histological images

poses a big challenge due to their texture and similarity among

classes. Image classification by using feature engineering and

convolutional neural networks (CNN) are suitable methods to

assist biologists when performing organ detection. This work

evaluates the Bag-of-Visual-Words (BOVW) and Pyramid-Bagof-

Words (PBOW) models for image classification leveraging big

data techniques; and transfer learning for the same classification

task by using a pre-trained CNN. A comparative analysis

of these two different techniques is performed, highlighting

the characteristics of both approaches on the shrimp organs

identification problem.

  Volume 331 Issue Pages  
  Keywords multispectral imaging; image registration; data fusion; infrared and visible spectra  
  Abstract This paper presents a preliminary study on the registration and fusion of cross-spectral imaging. The objective is to evaluate the validity of widely used computer vision approaches when they are applied at different spectral bands. In particular, we are interested in merging images from the infrared (both long wave infrared: LWIR and near infrared: NIR) and visible spectrum (VS). Experimental results with different data sets are presented.

  Title Open Source system for identification of corn leaf chlorophyll contents based on multispectral images Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication International Conference on Applied Technologies (ICAT 2019); Quito, Ecuador Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 572-581  
  Keywords  
  Abstract It is important for farmers to know the level of chlorophyll in plants since this depends on the treatment they should give to their crops. There are two common classic methods to get chlorophyll values: from laboratory analysis and electronic devices. Both methods obtain the chlorophyll level of one sample at a time, although they can be destructive. The objective of this research is to develop a system that allows obtaining the chlorophyll level of plants using images.

Python programming language and different libraries of that language were used to develop the solution. It was decided to implement an image labeling module, a simple linear regression and a prediction module. The first module was used to create a database that links the values of the images with those of chlorophyll, which was then used to obtain linear regression in order to determine the relationship between these variables. Finally, the linear

regression was used in the prediction system to obtain chlorophyll values from the images. The linear regression was trained with 92 images, obtaining a root-mean-square error of 7.27 SPAD units. While the testing was perform using 10 values getting a maximum error of 15.5%.

It is concluded that the system is appropriate for chlorophyll contents identification of corn leaves in field tests.

However, it can also be adapted for other measurement and crops. The system can be downloaded at github.com/JoeSvr95/NDVI-Checking [1].

  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 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.

  Volume Vol. 4 Issue Pages pp. 430-436  
  Keywords Fault Tolerance, Data Fusion, Multi-sensor Fusion, Autonomous Vehicles, Perception System  
  Abstract Driverless vehicles are currently being tested on public roads in order to examine their ability to perform in a safe and reliable way in real world situations. However, the long-term reliable operation of a vehicle’s diverse sensors and the effects of potential sensor faults in the vehicle system have not been tested yet. This paper is proposing a sensor fusion architecture that minimizes the influence of a sensor fault. Experimental results are presented simulating faults by introducing displacements in the sensor information from the KITTI dataset.
