  Title DARE: Adaptive Data Replication for Efficient Cluster Scheduling Type Conference Article
  Year 2011 Publication IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing, 2011 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 159 - 168  
  Keywords MapReduce, replication, scheduling, locality  
  Abstract Placing data as close as possible to computation is a common practice of data intensive systems, commonly referred to as the data locality problem. By analyzing existing production systems, we confirm the benefit of data locality and find that data have different popularity and varying correlation of accesses. We propose DARE, a distributed adaptive data replication algorithm that aids the scheduler to achieve better data locality. DARE solves two problems, how many replicas to allocate for each file and where to place them, using probabilistic sampling and a competitive aging algorithm independently at each node. It takes advantage of existing remote data accesses in the system and incurs no extra network usage. Using two mixed workload traces from Facebook, we show that DARE improves data locality by more than 7 times with the FIFO scheduler in Hadoop and achieves more than 85% data locality for the FAIR scheduler with delay scheduling. Turnaround time and job slowdown are reduced by 19% and 25%, respectively.

  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 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 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 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 Evaluating Group-Robot Interaction in Crowded Public Spaces: A Week-Long Exploratory Study in the Wild with a Humanoid Robot Guiding Visitors Through a Science Museum. Type Journal Article
  Year 2015 Publication International Journal of Humanoid Robotics Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Vol. 12 Issue Pages  
  Keywords Group-robot interaction; robotic-guide; social navigation; space management; spatial formations; group walking behavior; crowd behavior  
  Abstract This paper describes an exploratory study on group interaction with a robot-guide in an open large-scale busy environment. For an entire week a humanoid robot was deployed in the popular Cosmocaixa Science Museum in Barcelona and guided hundreds of people through the museum facilities. The main goal of this experience is to study in the wild the episodes of the robot guiding visitors to a requested destination focusing on the group behavior during displacement. The walking behavior follow-me and the face to face communication in a populated environment are analyzed in terms of guide- visitors interaction, grouping patterns and spatial formations. Results from observational data show that the space configurations spontaneously formed by the robot guide and visitors walking together did not always meet the robot communicative and navigational requirements for successful guidance. Therefore additional verbal and nonverbal prompts must be considered to regulate effectively the walking together and follow-me behaviors. Finally, we discuss lessons learned and recommendations for robot’s spatial behavior in dense crowded scenarios.

  Title Evaluation of algorithms for linear and nonlinear PID control for Twin Rotor MIMO System Type Conference Article
  Year 2015 Publication Computer Aided System Engineering (APCASE), 2015 Asia-Pacific Conference on, Quito, 2015 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 214-219  
  Keywords Twin Rotor MIMO System (TRMS); Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID); Linear PID Controller; Nonlinear PID Controller; Nonlinear Observer  
  Abstract In this paper the linear and nonlinear PID control algorithms are analyzed and for a twin rotor MIMO system (TRMS), whose characteristic is not linear with two degrees of freedom and cross-links. The aim of this work is to stabilize the TRMS, to achieve a particular position and follow a trajectory in the shortest time. Mathematical modeling of helicopter model is simulated using MATLAB / Simulink, the two degrees of freedom are controlled both horizontally and vertically through the proposed controllers. Also nonlinear segmented observers for each degree of freedom are designed in order to measure statements required by the nonlinear controller. Followed, a comparative analysis of both algorithms is presented to evaluate their performance in the real TRMS.
