This paper presents a decision support system for automatic keep-clear signs management. The system consists of several modules. First of all, an acquisition module obtains images using a vehicle equipped with two recording cameras. A recognition module, which is based on Support Vector Machines (SVMs), analyzes each image and decides if there is a(More)
The optimal positioning of switches in a mobile communication network is an important task, which can save costs and improve the performance of the network. In this paper we propose a model for establishing which are the best nodes of the network for allocating the available switches, and several hybrid genetic algorithms to solve the problem. The proposed(More)
—In this paper, a method to teach advanced features of evolutionary algorithms (EAs), using a famous game known as Japanese puzzles is presented. The authors show that Japanese puzzles are constrained combinatorial optimization problems, that can be solved using EAs with different encodings, and are challenging problems for EAs. Other features, such as(More)
