In this work, a model order reduction technique for fast frequency sweep in microwave filters and diplexers via the Reduced Basis Method is detailed. The Finite Element Method is used to solve the time-harmonic Maxwell's equations in these resonant circuit problems. Taking into account the electromagnetic field varies smoothly as a function of the frequency parameter, a low dimension system parameter manifold is identified. Thus, the original frequency-dependent Finite Element problem can be approximated by a model of reduced size using a Reduced Basis approximation. Based on the field frequency behavior in these resonant structures, the Reduced Basis space where...

A circuit description of the electromagnetic behavior in microwave filters by means of the data provided by FEM analysis in the frequency band of interest is detailed. Loewner matrix approach is used to carry out a tangential interpolation of the simulation data, giving rise to a linear dynamical system description fitting the simulation results. The FEM solver is then used as a black box unlike other model-order reduction techniques. As a result, from this linear dynamical system, a transversal coupling matrix gathering all electromagnetic phenomena within a frequency band is found.

The thermal performance of a sunspace attached to a bioclimatic building in Madrid has been studied. As a passive strategy, combines naturally the effect of the direct solar radiation and the absorption of the opaque constructive systems and the thermal properties of the air enclosed in the sunspace. During the winter, the sun warms the air enclosed allowing to use it as a natural collector of warm air to introduce it in the inner areas. During the summer, it’s a buffer space who prevent the infuence of the ambient conditions in the inner areas. In the case studied, most of...

We present a methodology based on matrix factorization and gradient descent to predict the number of sessions established in the access points of a Wi-Fi network according to the users’ behavior. As the network considered in this work is monitored and controlled by software in order to manage users and resources in real time, we may consider it as a cyber-physical system that interacts with the physical world through access points, whose demands can be predicted according to users’ activity. These predictions are useful for relocating or reinforcing some access points according to the changing physical environment. In this work...

The specificity and affinity of antibody-antigen interactions is a fundamental way to achieve reliable biosensing responses. Different proteins involved with dry eye dysfunction: ANXA1, ANXA11, CST4, PRDX5, PLAA and S100A6; were validated as biomarkers. In this work several antibodies were tested for ANXA1, ANXA11 and PRDX5 to select the best candidates for each biomarker. The results were obtained by using Biophotonic Sensing Cells (BICELLs) as an efficient methodology for label-free biosensing and compared with the Enzyme-Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay (ELISA) technique.

The subjective assessment of super multiview (SMV) video considers two main perceptual factors: image quality and visual comfort at the viewpoint transition. While previous works only covered raw content with high levels of visual comfort, this work supersedes them by targeting the subjective assessment of SMV content with coding artifacts. The outcome of this analysis yields important conclusions regarding the relationship between these two factors, indicating that 1) the perceived image quality is independent from the view point change speed, and 2) the perceived visual comfort at the view point transition is independent from the image quality. These conclusions facilitate...

In this paper we present a robust and simple method for the detection of anomalies in surveillance scenarios. We use a “bottom-up” approach that avoids any object tracking, making the system suitable for anomaly detection in crowds. A robust optical flow method is used for the extraction of accurate spatio-temporal motion information, which allows to get simple but discriminative descriptors that are employed to train a Gaussian mixture model. We evaluate our system in a publicly available dataset, concluding that our method outperforms similar anomaly detection approaches but with a simpler model and low-sized descriptors.

Super MultiView (SMV) video display is the most promising technology for 3-D glasses-free visualization. Although only a few prototypes are currently available, the research on tech- nical and perceptual factors related to this approach is crucial. This paper presents a novel model to capture the subjective per- ception of SMV, called the MultiView Perceptual Disparity Model (MVPDM), by means of a parametrization of the relation between: 1) capture and scene settings, and 2) perception of speed comfort and smoothness in the viewpoint transition. The MVPDM is based on a novel parameter: the perceptual disparity, that captures ap- propriately the perceptual...

An optimization technique based on an adapted combination of simulated annealing (SA) and tabu search (TS) is presented. This method aims at finding near-optimal unequal error protection (UEP) application-layer FEC code configurations. This approach is intended to smartly protect audio and video transmission over IP networks when hard time restrictions apply. The considered code is a UEP version of the widely-used Pro-MPEG COP3 codes enabling the use of several matrices of dissimilar size and thus of unequal recovery capability. Finding the optimal configuration frequently requires the evaluation of a large solution space. So, to fulfill the imposed constraints, SA is...

Fatigue has adverse effects in both physical and cognitive abilities. Hence, automatically detecting exercise-induced fatigue is of importance, especially in order to assist in the planning of effort and resting during exercise sessions. Thermal imaging and facial analysis provide a mean to detect changes in the human body unobtrusively and in variant conditions of pose and illumination. In this context, this paper proposes the automatic detection of exercise-induced fatigue using thermal cameras and facial images, analyzing them using deep convolutional neural networks. Our results indicate that classification of fatigued individuals is possible, obtaining an accuracy that reaches over 80% when...

There is a huge proliferation of surveillance systems that require strategies for detecting different kinds of stationary foreground objects (e.g., unattended packages or illegally parked vehicles). As these strategies must be able to detect foreground objects remaining static in crowd scenarios, regardless of how long they have not been moving, several algorithms for detecting different kinds of such foreground objects have been developed over the last decades. This paper presents an efficient and highquality strategy to detect stationary foreground objects, which is able to detect not only completely static objects but also partially static ones. Three parallel nonparametric detectors with...

Stereoscopic 3D TV viewing puts different visual demands on the viewer compared to 2D TV viewing. Previous research has reported on viewers’ fatigue and discomfort and other negative effects. This study is to investigate further how severe and what symptoms may arise from somewhat longish 3D TV viewing. The MPEG 3DV project is working on the next-generation video encoding standard and in this process, MPEG issued a call for proposal of encoding algorithms. To evaluate these algorithms a large scale subjective test was performed involving Laboratories all over the world [(MPEG 2011; Baroncini 2012)]. For the participating Labs, it was...

Loss of motor function is a consequence after cervical spinal cord injury. Three-dimensional kinematic analysis equipments are used for quantifying human movements in clinical laboratories. These systems may provide objectivity to the patient assessments. Nowadays, the kinematic variables found in the literature have some defciencies, and the effcient management of these data sets is a demand and a challenge in the clinical setting. The aim of the present paper is to propose a set of novel kinematic indices, as a combination of kinematic variables, for quantifying upper limb motor disorders in terms of characteristics in relation to ability and dexterity...

Front metallization is an expensive, fundamental step in the fabrication of solar cells. Laser additive direct writing techniques, such as Laser Induced Forward Transfer (LIFT), can be used for printing optimized metallization patterns or free form personalized designs with applications in building integrated photovoltaics. In this work, metallic fingers and busbars have been printed onto different rigid and flexible photovoltaic materials using commercial, high viscosity, micron-sized particles, silver-based pastes. Printed lines show very large aspect ratios, low electrical resistivity and good adherence to the substrate. Functional test cells have been metallized from unfinished CIGS flexible solar cells.

The crystallization by laser of amorphous or microcrystalline silicon films allows to obtain thin, high-quality, polycrystalline Si films, being a very promising method for diminishing costs in the microelectronic and solar cells sectors. During a laser crystallization process, light is partially absorbed in the amorphous silicon film, heating the sample and, if the temperature rises high enough, causing the reorganization of the film structure into a crys- talline one. In this work we show both experimental results on the crystallization of non-hydrogenated silicon thin-films performed by a continuous wave infrared laser are included, as well as a study of the...

The treatment of surfaces by physical or chemical methods is a very usual way to change their original properties. Although the most common use of a surface functionalization is for tribology aims, modifications of the topography that leads to changes in the surface roughness, its hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity, its light scattering behavior, biocompatibility or even aesthetic changes are possible. In this field, laser sources have proven to be a most versatile and useful tool, being a clean and fast way to achieve any of those objectives. In this work we show the results of functionalization by laser texturing of four...

Front metallization is an expensive, fundamental step in the fabrication of solar cells. It comprises different processes including the printing of fingers and busbars and several thermal treatments in order to cure and sinter the printed material. These two steps have been replaced by laser direct writing techniques, what allows printing fully personalized metallization designs, with high throughput velocities and a lower thermal budget for the solar cell structure.
