Title Feature Point Descriptors: Infrared and Visible Spectra Type Journal Article
Year 2014 Publication Sensors Journal Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 14 Issue Pages pp. 3690-3701
Keywords (up) cross-spectral imaging; feature point descriptors
Abstract This manuscript evaluates the behavior of classical feature point descriptors when they are used in images from long-wave infrared spectral band and compare them with the results obtained in the visible spectrum. Robustness to changes in rotation, scaling, blur, and additive noise are analyzed using a state of the art framework. Experimental results using a cross-spectral outdoor image data set are presented and conclusions from these experiments are given.

Title Cross-spectral Stereo Correspondence using Dense Flow Fields Type Conference Article
Year 2014 Publication Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP), 2014 International Conference on, Lisbon, Portugal, 2014 Abbreviated Journal
Volume 3 Issue Pages 613 - 617
Keywords (up) Cross-spectral Stereo Correspondence, Dense Optical Flow, Infrared and Visible Spectrum
Abstract This manuscript addresses the cross-spectral stereo correspondence problem. It proposes the usage of a dense flow field based representation instead of the original cross-spectral images, which have a low correlation. In this way, working in the flow field space, classical cost functions can be used as similarity measures. Preliminary experimental results on urban environments have been obtained showing the validity of the proposed approach.

Title Cycle generative adversarial network: towards a low-cost vegetation index estimation Type Conference Article
Year 2021 Publication IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP 2021) Abbreviated Journal
Volume 2021-September Issue Pages 2783-2787
Keywords (up) CyclicGAN, NDVI, near infrared spectra, instance normalization.
Abstract This paper presents a novel unsupervised approach to estimate the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI).The NDVI is obtained as the ratio between information from the visible and near infrared spectral bands; in the current work, the NDVI is estimated just from an image of the visible spectrum through a Cyclic Generative Adversarial Network (CyclicGAN). This unsupervised architecture learns to estimate the NDVI index by means of an image translation between the red channel of a given RGB image and the NDVI unpaired index’s image. The translation is obtained by means of a ResNET architecture and a multiple loss function. Experimental results obtained with this unsupervised scheme show the validity of the implemented model. Additionally, comparisons with the state of the art approaches are provided showing improvements with the proposed approach.

Title Beyond visual and radio line of sight UAVs monitoring system through open software in a simulated environment. Type Conference Article
Year 2021 Publication The 2nd International Conference on Applied Technologies (ICAT 2020), diciembre 2-4. Communications in Computer and Information Science Abbreviated Journal
Volume 1388 Issue Pages 629-642
Keywords (up) Drone, Open Source, Internet, Web Application, Web Server, SITL, Line of sight, UAV.
Abstract The problem of loss of line of sight when operating drones has be-come a reality with adverse effects for professional and amateur drone opera-tors, since it brings technical problems such as loss of data collected by the de-vice in one or more instants of time during the flight and even misunderstand-ings of legal nature when the drone flies over prohibited or private places. This paper describes the implementation of a drone monitoring system using the In-ternet as a long-range communication network in order to avoid the problem of loss of communication between the ground station and the device. For this, a simulated environment is used through an appropriate open software tool. The operation of the system is based on a client that makes requests to a server, the latter in turn communicates with several servers, each of which has a drone connected to it. In the proposed system when a drone is ready to start a flight, its server informs the main server of the system, which in turn gives feedback to the client informing it that the device is ready to carry out the flight; this way customers can send a mission to the device and keep track of its progress in real time on the screen of their web application.

Title A predictive model for human activity recognition by observing actions and context Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication ACIVS 2015 (Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems), International Conference on, Catania, Italy, 2015 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 323 - 333
Keywords (up) Edge width, Image blu,r Defocus map, Edge model
Abstract This paper presents a novel model to estimate human activities – a human activity is defined by a set of human actions. The proposed approach is based on the usage of Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) and Bayesian inference through the continuous monitoring of human actions and its surrounding environment. In the current work human activities are inferred considering not only visual analysis but also additional resources; external sources of information, such as context information, are incorporated to contribute to the activity estimation. The novelty of the proposed approach lies in the way the information is encoded, so that it can be later associated according to a predefined semantic structure. Hence, a pattern representing a given activity can be defined by a set of actions, plus contextual information or other kind of information that could be relevant to describe the activity. Experimental results with real data are provided showing the validity of the proposed approach.

Title Impacto de las redes de comunicaciones en los Sistemas Robóticos de Control Type Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication Revista Politécnica Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 35 Issue Pages pp. 97-102
Keywords (up) Ethernet, CAN, Swichted Ethernet, Sistemas de control en red, Ciclo de comunicación, Control de ajuste de trayectoria
Abstract El análisis de incidencia que tienen las redes de comunicaciones sobre el comportamiento de los sistemas robóticos de control en red muestra grandes dificultades cuando se quieren hacer evaluaciones de tipo analítico. Por tal razón, en este trabajo un análisis que utiliza una aproximación basada en simulación es propuesto, de manera que el comportamiento temporal y espacial de un sistema robótico de control en red pueda ser evaluado. Para tal efecto, se propone un entorno de validación mediante el cual una red de comunicaciones permita distribuir mensajes de control entre el controlador principal y los controladores remotos ubicados en cada articulación angular del robot manipulador planar. Las interacciones entre los componentes del sistema han sido modeladas mediante un sistema de capas. Dicho modelo es llevado a un entorno de simulación con la finalidad de analizar el impacto de distintos parámetros de comunicaciones (i.e. tipo de red, tasa de datos y tamaño de datos) sobre el ciclo de comunicación y el error de seguimiento de trayectoria en un sistema robótico.

Title Multi-sensor Fusion Module in a Fault Tolerant Perception System for Autonomous Vehicles Type Journal Article
Year 2016 Publication Journal of Automation and Control Engineering (JOACE) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 4 Issue Pages pp. 430-436
Keywords (up) 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.

Title LGHD: A feature descriptor for matching across non-linear intensity variations Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication IEEE International Conference on, Quebec City, QC, 2015 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 178 - 181
Keywords (up) Feature descriptor, multi-modal, multispectral, NIR, LWIR
Abstract This paper presents a new feature descriptor suitable to the task of matching features points between images with nonlinear intensity variations. This includes image pairs with significant illuminations changes, multi-modal image pairs and multi-spectral image pairs. The proposed method describes the neighbourhood of feature points combining frequency and spatial information using multi-scale and multi-oriented Log- Gabor filters. Experimental results show the validity of the proposed approach and also the improvements with respect to the state of the art.
