In 17th International Conference on Practical Applications of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (PAAMS 2019); Ávila, España. Communications in Computer and Information Science (Vol. 1047, pp. 246–256).
Abstract: One interesting publicity application for Smart City environments is recognizing brand information contained in urban advertising
panels. For such a purpose, a previous stage is to accurately detect and
locate the position of these panels in images. This work presents an effective solution to this problem using a Single Shot Detector (SSD) based
on a deep neural network architecture that minimizes the number of
false detections under multiple variable conditions regarding the panels and the scene. Achieved experimental results using the Intersection
over Union (IoU) accuracy metric make this proposal applicable in real
complex urban images.

Abstract: This paper presents a novel approach for colorizing
near infrared (NIR) images. The approach is based on
image-to-image translation using a Cycle-Consistent adversarial network for learning the color channels on unpaired dataset. This architecture is able to handle unpaired datasets. The approach uses as generators tailored
networks that require less computation times, converge
faster and generate high quality samples. The obtained results have been quantitatively—using standard evaluation
metrics—and qualitatively evaluated showing considerable
improvements with respect to the state of the art

Abstract: Based on the model of the proton exchange fuel cell in a strategic context,
this document develops the issue of energy as one of the pillars to achieve the
sustainability of our planet, considering the future scenarios up to the year 2060 of the
situation energy, hydrogen as a strategic vector and the contribution of the fuel cell in

humanity faces; for its application in the energy generation, telecommunications and
vehicle manufacturing industries.

Abstract: When a proton exchange fuel cell operates it produces in addition to electrical
energy, heat and water as sub products, which impact on the performance of the cell. This
paper analyzes the issue of transients and proposes a model that describes the dynamic
operation of the fuel cell. The model considers the transients produced by electrochemical
reactions, by flow water and by heat transfer. Two-phase flow transients result in
increased the parasitic power losses and thermal transients may result in flooding or dryout of the GDL and membrane, understanding transient behavior is critical for reliable
and predictable performance from the cell.

In 10th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics and the Affiliated Conferences (AHFE 2019), Washington D.C.; United States. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing (Vol. 975, pp. 108–118).
Abstract: This paper presents the simplification of the head movements from
the analysis of the biomechanical parameters of the head and neck at the
mechanical and structural level through CAD modeling and construction with
additive printing in ABS/PLA to implement non-verbal communication strategies and establish behavior patterns in the social interaction. This is using in the
denominated MASHI (Multipurpose Assistant robot for Social Human-robot
Interaction) experimental robotic telepresence platform, implemented by a
display with a fish-eye camera along with the mechanical mechanism, which
permits 4 degrees of freedom (DoF). In the development of mathematicalmechanical modeling for the kinematics codification that governs the robot and
the autonomy of movement, we have the Pitch, Roll, and Yaw movements, and
the combination of all of them to establish an active communication through
telepresence. For the computational implementation, it will be show the rotational matrix to describe the movement.

Abstract: Los drones o aeronaves no tripuladas son muy útiles para la adquisición de imágenes, de forma mucho más simple que los satélites o aviones. Sin embargo, las imágenes adquiridas por drones deben ser combinadas de alguna forma para convertirse en información de valor sobre un terreno o cultivo. Existen diferentes programas que reciben imágenes y las combinan en una sola imagen, cada uno con diferentes características (rendimiento, precisión, resultados, precio, etc.). En este estudio se revisaron diferentes programas de código abierto para fusión de imágenes, con el ?n de establecer cuál de ellos es más útil, especí?camente para ser utilizado por pequeños y medianos agricultores en Ecuador. Los resultados pueden ser de interés para diseñadores de software, ya que al utilizar código abierto, es posible modi?car e integrar los programas en un ?ujo de trabajo más simpli?cado. Además, que permite disminuir costos debido a que no requiere de pagos de licencias para su uso, lo cual puede repercutir en un mayor acceso a la tecnología para los pequeños y medianos agricultores. Como parte de los resultados de este estudio se ha creado un repositorio de acceso público con algoritmos de pre-procesamiento necesarios para manipular las imágenes adquiridas por una cámara multiespectral y para luego obtener un mapa completo en formatos RGB, CIR y NDVI.

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 .

Abstract: Comparing images regions are one of the core methods used on computer vision for tasks like image classification, scene understanding, object detection and recognition. Hence, this paper proposes a novel approach to determine similarity of image regions (patches), in order to obtain the best representation of image patches. This problem has been studied by many researchers presenting different approaches, however, the ability to find the better criteria to measure the similarity on image regions are still a challenge. The present work tackles this problem using a few-shot metric based meta-learning framework able to compare image regions and determining a similarity measure to decide if there is similarity between the compared patches. Our model is training end-to-end from scratch. Experimental results
have shown that the proposed approach effectively estimates the similarity of the patches and, comparing it with the state of the art approaches, shows better results.
