Origin and framework of the programme
The doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision (ARV) was established in 2006 by combining the Advanced Automation and Robotics programme of the Institute of Industrial and Control Engineering (IOC) and the Control, Vision and Robotics programme of the Department of Automatic Control (ESAII), both of which had received quality awards from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science. The merger was the result of an increasing affinity and convergence in the content and activity of the two programmes and served as an opportunity to adapt to the new system for official postgraduate programmes within the framework of the European Higher Education Area. From the first year that the new doctoral programme was offered, it was recognised with a quality award from the Ministry of Education and Science (code MCD2007-00150, years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010). The programme has also been granted the Pathway to Excellence award by the Ministry of Education (code MEE2011-0453, valid from 2011-2012 to 2013-2014).
The doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision provides a framework for students to complete doctoral theses in these fields, which are of vital importance in traditional industry and many service applications. Work is carried out mainly under the supervision of professors associated with the programme, using research facilities made available by the two units responsible for the degree (IOC and ESAII); the Institute of Robotics and Industrial Informatics (IRI), which collaborates very actively with the programme; and the research groups involved.
The doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision is a natural continuation of the master's degree in Automatic Control and Robotics (a UPC programme taught in English). Students who complete this master’s degree are therefore eligible for direct admission to the doctoral programme. Students with degrees in related fields may also be considered for admission. The academic committee will require that students admitted with other degrees complete specific bridging courses from the master’s degree in Automatic Control and Robotics (selected on a case-by-case basis) to ensure that they have the knowledge and skills needed to conduct research and complete a doctoral thesis in one of the areas covered by the programme.

Automatic control and robotics play an increasingly important role in contemporary society, from both a social perspective (habits and greater convenience and quality of life) and in terms of their direct and indirect economic significance. Consequently, research and development in this field is of vital importance and marks a clear difference between developed and developing countries. In the latter, products are marketed, or in some cases manufactured (basically due to lower production costs), but there is usually no know-how or capacity to innovate or produce graduates qualified to work in R&D, and this is where the difference lies. Producing professionals who are capable of innovating and working in highly specialised areas with the latest technologies constitutes a clear and direct contribution to our society. Moreover, all developed countries offer doctoral degrees equivalent to the doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision.

Aim of the programme
The aim of the programme is to provide students with rigorous training that builds on knowledge acquired in previous stages of their education and prepares them to undertake a career in scientific and technological research and to innovate in highly specialised areas on advanced aspects of automatic control, robotics and computer vision. The goal is therefore for doctoral students to develop the ability to find innovative solutions by drawing on solid theoretical knowledge and applying new technologies.

General information

Access profile

The ideal entrance qualification is a master’s degree that covers areas related to the subject areas of the programme: automatic control, robotics and computer vision. (Degree names vary depending on the applicant's country of origin and the university where they completed their previous studies.) Applicants who have completed the master's degree in Automatic Control and Robotics offered by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya qualify for direct admission to the doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision. Applicants who hold a science degree (e.g. in industrial engineering, electronics, mechanics, electromechanics or informatics) may also be admitted to the programme. Students admitted with these qualifications may be required to complete bridging courses, which will be specified by the academic committee for the programme.

Output profile

Doctoral candidates who complete a doctoral degree will have acquired the following competencies, which are needed to carry out quality research (Royal Decree 99/2011, of 28 January, which regulates official doctoral studies):

a) A systematic understanding of the field of study and a mastery of the research skills and methods related to the field.
b) An ability to conceive, design or create, put into practice and adopt a substantial process of research or creation.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years.

When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the requirement to complete this minimum period of study.

Temporary disability leave and leave for the birth of a child, adoption or fostering for the purposes of adoption, temporary foster care, risk during pregnancy or infant feeding, gender violence and any other situation provided for in current regulations do not count towards these periods. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which must inform the Doctoral School.

Doctoral candidates may request periods of temporary withdrawal from the programme for up to a total of two years. Requests must be justified and addressed to the academic committee responsible for the programme, which will decide whether or not to grant the candidate's request.

Extension of studies
If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

The ideal entrance qualification is a master’s degree that covers areas related to the subject areas of the programme: automatic control, robotics and computer vision. (Degree names vary depending on the applicant's country of origin and the university where they completed their previous studies.) Applicants who have completed the master's degree in Automatic Control and Robotics offered by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya qualify for direct admission to the doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision. Applicants who hold a science degree (e.g. in industrial engineering, electronics, mechanics, electromechanics or informatics) may also be admitted to the programme. Students admitted with these qualifications may be required to complete bridging courses, which will be specified by the academic committee for the programme.

Access requirements

As a rule, applicants must hold a Spanish bachelor's degree or equivalent and a Spanish master's degree or equivalent, provided they have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on the two degrees (Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February).

Applicants who meet one or more of the following conditions are also eligible for admission:

a) Holders of official Spanish degrees or equivalent Spanish qualifications, provided they have passed 300 ECTS credits in total and they can prove they have reached Level 3 in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education.
b) Holders of degrees awarded in foreign education systems in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), which do not require homologation, who can prove that they have reached Level 7 in the European Qualifications Framework, provided the degree makes the holder eligible for admission to doctoral studies in the country in which it was awarded.
c) Holders of degrees awarded in a country that does not belong to the EHEA, which do not require homologation, on the condition that the University is able to verify that the degree is of a level equivalent to that of official university master's degrees in Spain and that it makes the holder eligible for admission to doctoral studies in the country in which it was awarded.
d) Holders of another doctoral degree.
e) Holders of an official university qualification who, having been awarded a post as a trainee in the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have successfully completed at least two years of training leading to an official degree in a health sciences specialisation.

Note 1: Regulations for access to doctoral studies for individuals with degrees in bachelor's, engineering, or architecture under the system prior to the implementation of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014).

Note 2: Agreement number 64/2014 of the Governing Council approving the procedure and criteria for assessing the academic requirements for admission to doctoral studies with non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014).

Legal framework

Admission criteria and merits assessment

There are no specific admission requirements for the doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision beyond those that apply under current legislation. However, bear in mind that the academic committee for the programme reviews the academic records of all applicants to assess how well their academic background matches the ideal entrance qualifications indicated above. Applicants should have training equivalent to that which students receive on the UPC master's degree in Automatic Control and Robotics. Graduates of this UPC master’s degree qualify for direct admission to the doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision.

The academic committee for the programme will issue an assessment of applications for admission. The main criteria considered are:

a) Relevance of previous studies and the applicant's academic record (50%)
b) Other merits (experience in research work, publications, proficiency in languages, motivation and reasons for embarking on the doctoral degree) (50%)

When appropriate, the academic committee may require that a student take bridging courses as a condition of admission.

Training complements

The academic committee for the programme determines what bridging courses applicants will have to take if admitted. When an applicant seeks admission with the backing of a professor on the programme who will act as their thesis supervisor, the professor concerned may recommend to the academic committee the bridging courses that they consider most appropriate to direct the doctoral student specifically towards topics related to their doctoral thesis work.

Additional training will be based primarily on subjects of the master's degree in Automatic Control and Robotics. However, if there is sufficient justification, a student may take subjects included on other master's programmes or postgraduate courses. This may be deemed appropriate if there are subjects that are particularly relevant to the thesis work an applicant plans to undertake (when this work has been defined at the time of admission). Applicants who have completed a UPC master's degree in Automatic Control and Robotics qualify for direct admission to the doctoral programme in Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision and will not be required to take any bridging courses.

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

The enrolment period for new doctoral students will be in September.

More information at the registration section for new doctoral students

Enrolment period

After the first year, the enrolment period for doctoral students will run from September to mid-October.

More information at the general registration section

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

    Thesis abstract: This doctoral thesis explores the utilization of generalized Nash equilibrium (GNE) seeking methods for evolutionary games over networks in designing optimization-based controllers for large-scale complex systems (LSCSs). The focus lies on population games, modeling strategic interactions among large populations of agents with bounded rationality. These games are deemed suitable for modeling large-scale optimization-based control problems either directly or by employing evolutionary dynamics models (EDMs) to update optimization variables. The concept of GNE emerges as a fitting solution for non-cooperative optimization-based control scenarios, where multiple subsystems maximize their utilities subject to coupling constraints. Consequently, this thesis frames optimization-based control as a GNE seeking problem and introduces novel game-theoretical methods for achieving GNEs in population games over networks. Applications in congestion games, charging coordination of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), dynamic resource allocation in solar collector fields, and residential demand response are discussed.The first part focuses on GNE seeking methods for population games under full information schemes, where non-local information estimation is not explicitly modeled. Two approaches are proposed: one dealing with capacity-constrained population games, introducing novel strategy revision protocols to ensure capacity constraint satisfaction, and another addressing population games with affine equality and convex inequality constraints, devising a payoff dynamics model (PDM) steering agents towards GNEs. Formal asymptotic stability guarantees are provided, and these methods are applied to design controllers for dynamic resource allocation in LSCSs.In contrast, the second part formulates GNE seeking methods for population games under partial information schemes, explicitly modeling non-local decision information estimation. It tackles reaching Nash equilibria without coupling constraints and achieving GNEs with affine equality constraints coupling multiple agents' decisions. Novel PDMs are formulated to estimate non-local information and compute dual Lagrange multipliers associated with coupling constraints. Asymptotic stability guarantees are provided, and the methods are applied to large-scale congestion games.The third part introduces hybrid PDMs combining continuous and discrete-time dynamics. Two event-triggered PDMs are devised to accommodate practical control features like logic implications and occasional communication. One mechanism focuses on PEV charging coordination, considering charging completion and random arrivals/departures of PEVs, while another aims to reduce communication costs in residential demand response. Formal convergence guarantees towards GNEs are deduced for both cases.In summary, this thesis contributes theoretically and practically to GNE seeking methods for population games over networks and to the design of optimization-based control strategies for LSCSs.

    Thesis abstract: Clinical pathologists focus on detailed morphological analysis of peripheral blood (PB) cells for the recognition of abnormal cells and contribute to the diagnosis of hematological diseases. While this traditional method is often precise, it requires significant expertise, is time-consuming, and is subject to variability, especially when discerning subtle cell characteristics. In light of these challenges, this dissertation proposes the innovative use of deep learning, specifically convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and generative adversarial networks (GANs), to add objectivity in morphological examination of PB cells. The research is developed through a three-fold strategy. First, a novel GAN-based model standardizes PB cell image visualization across varied staining techniques. Second, optimized CNN architectures are tailored for precise classification of the selected PB cell types, with emphasis on reactive and malignant blood cells. Results indicate that the introduced Stain Normalization Model effectively manages staining variations while preserving cell morphology. Furthermore, CNN models, based on these normalized data, contribute significantly to the automatic recognition of malignant cells. And third, a modular GAN system generates synthetic PB images to enrich model training, particularly of low-prevalence cell data with special diagnostic interest.This research emphasizes the transformative impact of combining the expertise of clinical pathologists with advanced computational strategies. While these systems serve as potent support tools, it is imperative to note that the clinical pathologist retains the ultimate authority in decision-making. The fusion of traditional expertise and modern technology is a promising trend in the present and near future, enhancing both objectivity and efficiency. This study signifies an advance towards the establishment of an integrated system for an automated screening tool for hematological diseases.

    Thesis abstract: Aerial manipulators, which commonly take the form of multirotors with attached robotic limbs, primarily employ their limbs for pure manipulation tasks and do not rely on them during aerial locomotion. Besides, their movement tends to be slow. This thesis aims to enhance an aerial manipulator¿s agility by harnessing its limb¿s capabilities to augment its overall motion. This objective involves investigating various modes of utilizing the limb: as a tail for aerial locomotion, as an arm for aerial manipulation, or as a leg for hybrid aerial-contact locomotion. The present thesis contributes to two specific domains: 1. Generation and control of agile motions for aerial manipulators, 2. Design and construction of a specialized aerial manipulator for executing agile motions.Generating agile motions requires predicting the movement of the robot considering its dynamics so that these dynamics can be used to favor the robot¿s motion. Hence, we can achieve complex maneuvers with relative ease. Optimal control is a trajectory-generation technique that meets these requirements, and that is central to this thesis. We encode the robot¿s tasks as cost functions of the optimal control problem (OCP) and use the whole-body dynamics as the constraints of the dynamic system. On the control side, to deploy such trajectories in a real robot, we use model predictive control (MPC) techniques, which is the closed-loop control extension of optimal control. To get the control command, an MPC controller solves the OCP in which we have encoded the agile trajectory, and then the controller applies the first command of the solution control trajectory. Thus, MPC requires solving an OCP at the control rate, i.e., within a few milliseconds. This forces us to use fast, specialized solvers based on the dynamic programming principle, such as differential dynamic programming (DDP). In their original form, these solvers cannot consider the control bounds. These bounds are important to create trajectories compatible with the real robot. To tackle this problem, in this thesis, we propose two DDP-based methods to consider the control bounds: one is based on a squashing function, and the other is based on a projection method. Even with these solvers, we face challenges in meeting the solving rate and are forced to reduce the MPC horizon. Reducing the MPC horizon implies that the MPC can only see a portion of the original OCP, possibly leaving out some of the tasks. This affects the predictive capability of the controller and compromises the accomplishment of the tasks, especially those that require an elaborate and dynamic maneuver. To overcome this difficulty, in this thesis, we propose to update, at each MPC iteration, the terminal cost function in the MPC with a function that encodes the part of the trajectory that remains unseen by the controller.Regarding robot design, deploying agile motions becomes difficult with existing aerial manipulators, which are generally big-size multirotor platforms with non-compliant, high-gear ratio limbs. In this thesis, we present Borinot, an open-source aerial robotic platform designed to research hybrid agile locomotion and manipulation using flight and contacts. This platform features an agile and powerful hexarotor that can be outfitted with torque-actuated limbs of diverse architecture, allowing for whole-body dynamic control. We present experiments with this robot showcasing different agile motions.In addition to the stated contributions, this thesis contributes in other areas required to operate the robot, such as a procedure for identifying the dynamical parameters based on factor-graph estimation or a hardware enhancement that allows for direct thrust control of Borinot¿s rotors.

    Thesis abstract: Fossil fuels have played a pivotal role in driving global economic development. However, their rampant use has brought about severe environmental consequences, particularly air pollution and greenhouse gases (GHG) emmissions, which poses substantial threats to human health and the planet's well-being. To address these pressing issues, the development of efficient and sustainable technologies like Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFCs), powered by hydrogen from renewable sources, has become paramount. PEMFCs hold immense promise as a viable solution for decarbonization and mitigating air pollution and GHG emissions associated with transportation and vehicles. Nvertheless, overcoming challenges related to their efficiency and longevity remains a crucial step forward.Specifically, this thesis explores the application of PEMFCs in an automotive fuel cell electric vehicle. The longevity and durability of a fuel cell system, together with its efficiency, are pivotal factors in the advancement of fuel cell vehicles, as they significantly impact the cost and consumer acceptance of these vehicles. In the domain of automotive applications, the primary contributors to fuel cell degradation include challenging operating conditions (involving temperature, humidity, pressure, mass flow rate, high and low power densities), dynamic load profiles, improper handling during start-stop and idle modes, and the presence of contaminants in the reactant gases. A distributed-parameter model of the stack is presented in this thesis, accurately depicting the internal dynamic behavior of the PEMFC. Additionally, the models of balance-of-plant subsystems, including anode, cathode, and thermal subsystems are introduced and implemented in Simulink. All these models are experimentally validated. Based on these models, a model predictive control strategy is designed to obtain the optimal operating conditions for the stack and generate from these the balance-of-plant subsystem setpoints.A supervisory controller for a fuel cell system is designed. This supervisory controller comprises three key components: a setpoint generator, a state machine, and a power limit calculator. The supervisory controller is subjected to rigorous simulation testing using a standard automotive driving cycle.These sophisticated control methodologies and algorithms are then applied to the automotive system developed in the European INN-BALANCE project, which served as the foundation for this PhD Thesis. Therefore, this thesis presents experimental results obtained from the implementation of the proposed controller in a prototype vehicle at PCS and CEVT facilities, encompassing startup, shutdown, dynamic load tracking, and subsystem local controller performance.Finally, this thesis provide a comprehensive overview of the contributions made by the research and its outcomes. The conclusion also proposes potential avenues for future research, marking the culmination of the investigative journey undertaken in this thesis.

    Thesis abstract: Surface inspection of coated surfaces in the automotive industry, traditionally has been a manual process in charge of keen eye operators in charge of inspecting the whole car body. However, as might be deducted, manual inspections often lack repetitiveness and reliability, very much desired in a such a strict sector. Computer vision tackled this problem with the first automated defect detection systems, pinpointing the defects in the car body and their size. Nevertheless, as these systems are constrained to just detection, the operator is still in charge of properly labelling the defects to rework them correctly. Additionally, there is a lack of traceability between the process and the defects themselves, taking longer to identify the root causes of faulty paint shop facilities.In this thesis, we address the multidisciplinary problem of defect identification in specular surfaces, with two main research lines. In the first one, we developed a novel illumination approach based on indirect diffuse lighting, in contrast with the conventional specular reflection. Together with a high resolution camera, we demonstrated an important improvement in terms of defect recognition with respect to the existing defect detection systems. These results are assessed with specialized auditors from the SEAT Martorell factory.The second research line, oriented to computer vision, explore the possibilities of implementing a deep learning solution for industrial defect identification. We developed a fast and reliable context aggregation model, featuring dilated convolutions and residual connections between opposite layers. This model is then trained following a loss leverage between classification and segmentation, for a smoother training procedure. Additionally, in order to cope the frequent class imbalances in the industrial datasets, we developed a guided-crop image augmentation strategy, based on cropping real defect randomly into non-defective images to generate synthetic new samples. The results state that the combination of this model with this augmentation strategy is able to outperform well-known segmentation models.Eventually, for data scarcity situations, we resorted to image synthesis methods to generate new fake samples. Models like Pix2pix have proven to be able to generate close to real im- ages, helping the segmentation model to converge faster than with the previous guided-crop image augmentation technique. Later, this generative method will be surpassed by a more sophisticated one, which features spatially-adaptive normalization layers that help to synthe- size images even without an encoder. Overall, it demonstrated good capabilities in multiple industrial datasets.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
