• An evaluation of two distributed deployment algorithms for Mobile Wireless Sensor Networks 

      Aguilera, Francisco; Urdiales, Cristina; Sandoval, Francisco (2015-12-14)
      Deployment is important in large wireless sensor networks (WSN), specially because nodes may fall due to failure or battery issues. Mobile WSN cope with deployment and reconfiguration at the same time: nodes may move ...
    • A cane-based low cost sensor to implement attention mechanisms in telecare robots 

      Ballesteros, Joaquin; Urdiales, Cristina; Caro-Romero, Juan; Tudela, Alberto (2019-05-08)
      Telepresence robots have been recently used for Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA). Since the robot can not track a person continuously, there are several strategies to decide when to check them, from cyclic checks ...
    • Gait analysis for challenged users based on a rollator equipped with force sensors 

      Ballesteros, Joaquin; Urdiales, Cristina; Martinez, Antonio B.; Tirado, Marina (2015)
      El análisis del paso proporciona información detallada acerca del estado de los pacientes, su progreso en los tratamientos de rehabilitación y el riesgo de caídas que tienen. Este análisis se realiza usualmente en condiciones ...
    • Heterogeneous Device Networking for an AmI Environment 

      Jaime, José; Urdiales, Cristina; Sandoval, Francisco (2013-12-11)
      Assisted living environments involve a wide range of different devices. Most of them are commercially available, but typically associated to standard domotics buses not compatible with each other. Besides, in many cases ...
    • Learning-Based Adaptation for Personalized Mobility Assistance 

      Urdiales, Cristina; Peula, Jose Manuel; Fernandez-Carmona, Manuel; Sandoval, Francisco (Springer-Verlag, 2013)
      Mobility assistance is of key importance for people with disabilities to remain autonomous in their preferred environments. In severe cases, assistance can be provided by robotized wheelchairs that can perform complex ...
    • A Neural Network for Stance Phase detection in smart cane users 

      Caro-Romero, Juan; Ballesteros, Joaquín; García-Lagos, Francisco; Urdiales, Cristina; Sandoval-Hernandez, Francisco (2019-06-10)
      Persons with disabilities often rely on assistive devices to carry on their Activities of Daily Living. Deploying sensors on these devices may provide continuous valuable knowledge on their state and condition. Canes are ...
    • Reactive adapted assistance for wheelchair navigation based on a standard skill profile 

      Fernández-Carmona, Manuel; Urdiales, Cristina; Sandoval, Francisco (2014-12-19)
      Mobility assistance for wheelchair navigation is typically based on the shared control paradigm. Traditionally, control swaps from user to machine depending either on a trigger mechanism or on a explicit user request. ...
