  Title Monocular visual odometry: a cross-spectral image fusion based approach Type Journal Article
  Year 2016 Publication Robotics and Autonomous Systems Journal Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Vol. 86 Issue Pages pp. 26-36  
  Keywords (up) Monocular visual odometry LWIR-RGB cross-spectral imaging Image fusion  
  Abstract This manuscript evaluates the usage of fused cross-spectral images in a monocular visual odometry approach. Fused images are obtained through a Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) scheme, where the best setup is em- pirically obtained by means of a mutual information based evaluation met- ric. The objective is to have a exible scheme where fusion parameters are adapted according to the characteristics of the given images. Visual odom- etry is computed from the fused monocular images using an off the shelf approach. Experimental results using data sets obtained with two different platforms are presented. Additionally, comparison with a previous approach as well as with monocular-visible/infrared spectra are also provided showing the advantages of the proposed scheme.

  Title A visible-Thermal Fusion based Monocular Visual Odometry Type Conference Article
  Year 2015 Publication Iberian Robotics Conference (ROBOT 2015), International Conference on, Lisbon, Portugal, 2015 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 417 Issue Pages 517-528  
  Keywords (up) Monocular Visual Odometry; LWIR-RGB cross-spectral Imaging; Image Fusion  
  Abstract The manuscript evaluates the performance of a monocular visual odometry approach when images from different spectra are considered, both independently and fused. The objective behind this evaluation is to analyze if classical approaches can be improved when the given images, which are from different spectra, are fused and represented in new domains. The images in these new domains should have some of the following properties: i) more robust to noisy data; ii) less sensitive to changes (e.g., lighting); iii) more rich in descriptive information, among other. In particular in the current work two different image fusion strategies are considered. Firstly, images from the visible and thermal spectrum are fused using a Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) approach. Secondly, a monochrome threshold strategy is considered. The obtained representations are evaluated under a visual odometry framework, highlighting their advantages and disadvantages, using different urban and semi-urban scenarios. Comparisons with both monocular-visible spectrum and monocular-infrared spectrum, are also provided showing the validity of the proposed approach.

  Title Human Pose Estimation through A Novel Multi-View Scheme Type Conference Article
  Year 2022 Publication Proceedings of the International Joint Conference on Computer Vision, Imaging and Computer Graphics Theory and Applications VISIGRAPP 2022 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 5 Issue Pages 855-862  
  Keywords (up) Multi-View Scheme, Human Pose Estimation, Relative Camera Pose, Monocular Approach  
  Abstract This paper presents a multi-view scheme to tackle the challenging problem of the self-occlusion in human

pose estimation problem. The proposed approach first obtains the human body joints of a set of images,

which are captured from different views at the same time. Then, it enhances the obtained joints by using a

multi-view scheme. Basically, the joints from a given view are used to enhance poorly estimated joints from

another view, especially intended to tackle the self occlusions cases. A network architecture initially proposed

for the monocular case is adapted to be used in the proposed multi-view scheme. Experimental results and

comparisons with the state-of-the-art approaches on Human3.6m dataset are presented showing improvements

in the accuracy of body joints estimations.

  Title SSD vs. YOLO for Detection of Outdoor Urban Advertising Panels under Multiple Variabilities. Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Abbreviated Journal In Sensors  
  Volume Vol. 2020-August Issue 16 Pages pp. 1-23  
  Keywords (up) object detection; urban outdoor panels; one-stage detectors; Single Shot MultiBox Detector (SSD); You Only Look Once (YOLO); detection metrics; object and scene imaging variabilities  
  Abstract This work compares Single Shot MultiBox Detector (SSD) and You Only Look Once (YOLO)

deep neural networks for the outdoor advertisement panel detection problem by handling multiple

and combined variabilities in the scenes. Publicity panel detection in images o ers important

advantages both in the real world as well as in the virtual one. For example, applications like Google

Street View can be used for Internet publicity and when detecting these ads panels in images, it could

be possible to replace the publicity appearing inside the panels by another from a funding company.

In our experiments, both SSD and YOLO detectors have produced acceptable results under variable

sizes of panels, illumination conditions, viewing perspectives, partial occlusion of panels, complex

background and multiple panels in scenes. Due to the diculty of finding annotated images for the

considered problem, we created our own dataset for conducting the experiments. The major strength

of the SSD model was the almost elimination of False Positive (FP) cases, situation that is preferable

when the publicity contained inside the panel is analyzed after detecting them. On the other side,

YOLO produced better panel localization results detecting a higher number of True Positive (TP)

panels with a higher accuracy. Finally, a comparison of the two analyzed object detection models

with di erent types of semantic segmentation networks and using the same evaluation metrics is

also included.

  Title Open Control Architecture for the Characterization and Control of the PEM Fuel Cell Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication IEEE ETCM 2019 Fourth Ecuador Technical Chapters Meeting; Guayaquil, Ecuador Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 1-5  
  Keywords (up) PEM fuel cell, Experimental System, Control Engineering.  
  Abstract Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, are an efficient and clean source of electrical energy. The analysis of its operation requires experimental work, which allows measuring, modeling and optimizing PEM fuel cells electrical behavior under different operating conditions. Therefore, having an experimentation platform that allows to easily carry out its study and control is essential. This research presents the design and development of an open instrumental system that allows measuring, controlling and determining the operating parameters of a PEM fuel cell. As results, the polarization curves, voltage-current, obtained by the system itself in different experimental conditions are shown. These curves are a very useful tool to evaluate the electrical behavior of the PEM battery.

  Title A fuzzy model to manage water in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells Type Journal Article
  Year 2021 Publication In Processes Journal. (Article number 904) Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Vol. 9 Issue Issue 6 Pages  
  Keywords (up) PEM fuel cell, fuzzy, neural network, electrical response, flooding, drying.  
  Abstract In this paper, a fuzzy model is presented to determine in real-time the degree of dehydration or flooding of a proton exchange membrane of a fuel cell, to optimize its electrical response and consequently, its autonomous operation. By applying load, current and flux variations in the dry, normal, and flooded states of the membrane, it was determined that the temporal evolution of the fuel cell voltage is characterized by changes in slope and by its voltage oscillations. The results were validated using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and show slope changes from 0.435 to 0.52 and oscillations from 3.6 mV to 5.2 mV in the dry state, and slope changes from 0.2 to 0.3 and oscillations from 1 mV to 2 mV in the flooded state. The use of fuzzy logic is a novelty and constitutes a step towards the progressive automation of the supervision, perception, and intelligent control of fuel cells, allowing them to reduce their risks and increase their economic benefits.
