The framework of this paper is robot localization inside buildings by means of wireless localization systems. Such kind of systems make use of the Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) signal strength sensors which are becoming more and more useful in the localization stage of several robotic platforms. Robot localization is usually made up of two phases: training and(More)
This paper presents a complete traffic sign recognition system, including the steps of detection, recognition and tracking. The Hough transform is used as detection method from the information extracted in contour images, while the proposed recognition system is based on Support Vector Machines (SVM), and is able to recognize up to one hundred of the main(More)
The goal of this paper is to solve the problem of dynamic obstacle avoidance for a mobile platform using the stochastic optimal control framework to compute paths that are optimal in terms of safety and energy efficiency under constraints. We propose a three-dimensional extension of the Bayesian Occupancy Filter (BOF) (Coué et al. Int. J. Rob. Res. 2006,(More)
This work presents a general framework for people indoor activity recognition. Firstly, a Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) localization system implemented as a Fuzzy Rulebased Classifier (FRBC) is used to obtain an approximate position at the level of discrete zones (office, corridor, meeting room, etc). Secondly, a Fuzzy Finite State Machine (FFSM) is used for(More)
This paper presents the results of a set of extensive experiments carried out under both daytime and nighttime real traffic conditions. The data were captured using an enhanced or extended Floating Car Data system (xFCD) that includes a stereo vision sensor for detecting the local traffic ahead. The collected information is then used to propose a novel(More)
Two of the WHO First International Standards (IS) of allergenic extracts, the corresponding to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (House dust mite) and phleum pratense (Thymothy grass), have been used to assess the quality of our in-house reference preparations (IHR) and to calibrate their relative potency. The qualitative comparison was achieved by SDS-PAGE,(More)
Mapping techniques based on Wireless Range-Only Sensors (WROS) consist of locating the beacons using distance measurements only. In this work we use WROS working at 2.4GHz band (same as WiFi), which has the disadvantage of being affected by a high noise. The goal of this paper is to study a noisy range-only sensor and its application in the development of(More)
