Automatic Control, Robotics and Vision

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.
c) An ability to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge through original research.
d) A capacity for critical analysis and an ability to assess and summarise new and complex ideas.
e) An ability to communicate with the academic and scientific community and with society in general as regards their fields of knowledge in the manner and languages that are typical of the international scientific community to which they belong.
f) An ability to foster scientific, technological, social, artistic and cultural progress in academic and professional contexts within a knowledge-based society.

The award of a doctoral degree must equip the graduate for work in a variety of settings, especially those requiring creativity and innovation. Doctoral graduates must have at least acquired the personal skills needed to:

a) Develop in contexts in which there is little specific information.
b) Find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem.
c) Design, create, develop and undertake original, innovative projects in their field.
d) Work as part of a team and independently in an international or multidisciplinary context.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. 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 five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

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 minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

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 maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the 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

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)

In addition, the following may apply:

  • Holders of an official degree awarded by a university in Spain or any other country in the European Higher Education Area, pursuant to the provisions of Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes official university course regulations, who have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on official university degrees, of which at least 60 must be at the master's degree level.
  • Holders of an official Spanish bachelor’s degree comprising at least 300 credits, as provided for by EU regulations. Holder of degrees of this kind must complete bridging courses unless the curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in question included research training credits equivalent in value to those which would be earned on a master's degree.
  • Holders of an official university qualification who, having passed the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have completed at least two years of a training course leading to an official degree in a health-sciences specialisation.
  • Holders of a degree issued under a foreign education system. In these cases, homologation is not required, but the UPC must verify that the degree certifies a level of training equivalent to an official Spanish master's degree and qualifies the holder for admission to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. Admission on this basis does not imply homologation of the foreign degree or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to doctoral studies.
  • Holders of a Spanish doctoral qualification issued under previous university regulations.
  • Note 1: Doctoral studies entrance regulations for holders of an undergraduate degree awarded before the introduction of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014)

    Note 2: Governing Council Decision 64/2014, which approves the procedure and criteria for assessing the fulfilment of academic admission requirements for doctoral studies by holders of non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014)

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 academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of 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 maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

    Thesis abstract: There are 50 million people worldwide living with dementia, and this number is projected to triple by 2050. While there are no pharmacological treatments for this syndrome, behavioural therapy such as cognitive training can maintain or improve the patients' general cognitive functioning, eventually prolonging ageing in place. However, the number of patients who require such treatment greatly exceeds the number of healthcare professionals' availability.Robots have the potential to bridge this gap by facilitating this training regimen and enhancing therapists¿ effectiveness in delivering cognitive therapy.A key enabling technology is personalisation. Indeed, the ability to personalise such treatments to suit the preferences and goals of an individual is crucial to improving the quality and efficacy of the intervention and increasing users¿ engagement over long-term interactions. Despite the recent advances, many questions still need to be addressed regarding the design, development, and deployment of social robots for such purposes.This thesis postulates a set of these questions with which we aim to pursue our main goal: the development of a fully autonomous robot for delivering cognitive training. In the scope of this thesis, we tackled personalisation by designing robots that are both adaptable and adaptive. Adaptable in such a manner as to enable therapists to set them up and customise their high-level behaviour. Adaptive in such a manner that they can tailor their intervention to suit the individual¿s unique needs as they evolve through time.Building upon this idea, the work has taken a therapist-oriented approach in which healthcare professionals¿ expertise can be reflected in the design of a set of functionalities needed for the development and deployment of a personalised fully autonomous robotic system. Toward such a goal, this thesis explores the impact of robots' human-like characteristics, such as personality, communication style, and backchannelling behaviour, on the users¿ intention to use the robot and their task performance. On the other hand, it investigates several AI techniques for robots' reasoning, aiming at learning socially assistive behaviour that better suits the user's abilities.This thesis culminates by proposing a novel framework called aCtive leARning agEnt aSsiStive bEhaviouR (CARESSER). CARESSER enables therapists to customise the robot¿s assistive behaviour (adaptable) and allows the robot to learn in situ personalised patient-specific policies (adaptive) in a fully autonomous fashion. Through the development and evaluation of CARESSER, this work contributes to both the fields of HRI and AI, especially on how social robots can learn by leveraging therapists' expertise and demonstrations, which has the benefits of speeding up the learning process, eliminating the need for the design of complex reward functions, and finally, avoiding undesired states that may have a negative impact on the patients.

    Thesis abstract: In this thesis, the dynamic model for the piezoelectric cantilever beam is build by using partial differential equation (PDE). To facilitate the parameter estimation procedure and the controller design, a simplified control-oriented ordinary differential equation (ODE)-based model is constructed. Adaptive parameter estimation strategies are developed for the system with the first mode and the system with multi-modes respectively. In order to suppress the vibration of the beam, an unknown dynamics estimator (UDE)-based controller is introduced for the beam. To further take into account the unknown parameters, adaptive control is proposed which can online update the parameters. The main contributions of the thesis can be summarized as follows:1. Development of the PDE-based model and the ODE-based model for the submerged piezoelectric cantilever beam. The system is described by both the PDE-based model and ODE-based model. The motion equation of the cantilever beam is build with the help of Hamilton¿s principle. The piezoelectric actuator model is included in the derived PDE and the deflection-strain relationship is presented for the purpose of experimental validation. To make it convenient for parameter estimation, Galerkin method is adopted to convert the PDE to ODE. 2. Adaptive parameter estimation strategy design for the beam with one mode. A new adaptive parameter estimation framework is proposed to online estimate unknown system parameters considering the first vibration mode. To obtain the system states, the Levant exact differentiator via sliding mode technique is constructed. Instead of using the observer/predictor error as in the classical parameter estimation methods, a novel adaptive law which is driven by the parameter estimation error is proposed. 3. Adaptive parameter estimation for the beam with multi-modes by using input and output. In order to cope with multiple vibration modes of the beam, a novel parameter estimation strategy is formulated to identify the beam system. A novel adaptive law is introduced to estimate the unknown system parameters in real time. Specifically, a time-varying gain is designed to handle the effects of regressor to enhance convergence performance and simplify the tuning of learning gains. 4. Development of the UDE-based vibration control for the beam. An estimator based vibration control strategy is introduced to both suppress the vibration and estimate the unknown system dynamics. Different to the function approximation based methods, the proposed control has a simple structure which is more realistic to implement in practice. In the proposed estimator, only one parameter need to be tuned depends on the bandwidth of the filter. The estimated unknown dynamics is compensated into the controller and thus makes the system more robust to unknown external disturbances. The stability and convergence properties of the proposed control is proved by using Lyapunov theory.5. Adaptive control design for the beam. To suppress the vibration of the beam with unknown system parameters, an adaptive control is proposed. By using the parameter estimation error based adaptive law, the unknown system parameters can be online updated. To suppress the vibration of the beam, the adaptive controller is designed and the stability is proved.

    Thesis abstract: Concern about energy efficiency has increased in the industry, mainly motivated by rising energy prices and government policies to raise awareness of environmental impact. For this reason, this thesis is dedicated to developing energy efficiency improvements in the industry, optimizing the use of electrical resources, and providing methodologies for proper equipment maintenance. Take into account that energy efficiency is not only maximized with proper management, but also is achieved by enhancing equipment efficiency with early maintenance under a predictive maintenance scheme. The proposed methodologies have been validated in realistic industrial scenarios, using testbeds based on industrial equipment and processes. A case study has been carried out at Bilbao airport to prove the effectiveness of one of the proposed methods.A nonlinear dynamic modeling approach is proposed to create accurate models based on electrical consumption measurements of an industrial machine, whose model structure is widely used in control theory. Using this modeling methodology, an adaptive mechanism is developed that can be defined as a digital twin of a manufacturing machine, being able to update the model when the system undergoes a new behavior. The adaptive digital twin can track the degradation trend of the actual system. The digital twin can be easily integrated into innovative infrastructures such as the energy cloud. The data-driven modeling methodology is used to design a model predictive control approach to improve energy efficiency in a manufacturing machine, without affecting productivity. This control strategy manages the peripheral devices of the machine, guaranteeing the proper operation of the auxiliary tasks while maximizing the energy efficiency of the machine. The adaptive mechanism is integrated with the controller, giving robustness to the control to deal with industrial environments. Towards an energy improvement of the industry through proper maintenance, this dissertation presents condition monitoring approaches for early detection and prognosis of electromechanical system failures, exclusively using electrical measurements. The proposed approaches characterize and monitor the torque oscillations transmitted in the motor stator current. Mechanical and electrical anomalies that can lead to failures are detected early, simply by installing a non-intrusive sensor on the motor. A healthy index is designed to track the degradation trend of the system without the need to specify a particular failure. For industrial cases where the information on possible faults may be limited or null, this healthy index is proposed to deal with those situations, extracting a general condition of an electromechanical system. The health index measures how the behavior of the current spectrum fits into a healthy representation by an average spectrum and its distribution. This methodology provides early warnings to schedule maintenance interventions as soon as possible, where a comprehensive diagnosis can be made. A prognosis methodology is proposed to anticipate failures with enough time to schedule proper maintenance. This is designed to monitor the most critical components that are sensitive to failure. A new health index is presented that characterizes the fundamental failure frequencies. This indicator has a monotonically increasing trend, which has been modeled with exponential regressions. By computing the online multiple exponential regression, a non-parametric distribution of time-to-failure is updated, describing the remaining time to reach an established failure threshold. The most likely time-to-failure is revealed over time, being used to estimate the remaining useful life of the components with confidence limits. With this novel and reliable methodologies, the maintenance process in the industry can be improved, avoiding falls in inefficiencies for a long time that causes energy waste.

    Thesis abstract: This industrial thesis work tackles primarily the challenges associated with the development of the cathode module and auxiliary cooling module for fuel cell electric vehicle applications. The development process itself consists of four main phases, each of which is addressed and discussed in detail in this thesis document. The first phase of the development process covered in this thesis is the creation of a simulation platform using Matlab/Simulink that was used to evaluate the performance of the system, safely and efficiently test different control strategies. A simulation-oriented modeling methodology for the cathode module and the auxiliary cooling circuit is proposed and discussed. The modeling done considered the nonlinear dynamic behavior of the components which is crucial for the development of control strategies. A state-space representation of the entire subsystem was derived. The model was eventually included in a larger scale simulation of the entire fuel celt system. The second phase of the development process involves the construction of the test benches that were used for model validation and rapid control prototyping. Two different test benches were developed. A step-by-step model validation procedure was followed to obtain certain model parameters and fit the simulation results to the experimental results. lt was shown from the comparisons done that the simulation models precisely emulate the behavior of the hardware. The validated models were used for preliminary testing of control strategies. The test benches were then used to verify the credibility and finally evaluate the performance of the developed control strategies under more realistic settings. ln the third phase, advanced control strategies for the cathode module and auxiliary cooling circuit where developed, simulated and tested. Each of the proposed control strategies was aimed at solving some of issues encountered due to the complex system dynamics. To control the mass flow rate and pressure while coping with the rate-limitations of the actuators, two control strategies were developed. The first is an adaptive Pl-controller with a robust switching-type anti-windup strategy. Results obtained using this control strategy clearly suggest it as being a viable option for the cathode module. lt can be implemented on automotive microcontrollers and require little knowledge of the system dynamics. A second control strategy proposed for the mass flow rate and pressure is a robust model predictive controller. The model predictive controller was able to outperform the developed adaptive Pl-controller in several aspects. The third control strategy developed was an optlmization-based control strategy meant for the auxiliary cooling circuit. When compared to linear Pl-controllers, the proposed controller was able to resolve issues resulting from the saturation of the actuators due to ineficient operation. For the fourth and final phase of the development process, the cathode module and cooling circuit were treated as packaged subsystems with their own respective local controllers. Focus was given to the interactions the subsystems have with an upper-layer supervisory controller that coordinates all modules of the automotive fuel cell systems for proper start-up, shutdown and efficient production the required electric power. Software functions such as state{ransition, fault detection and error reporting were implemented. This was done as per the requirements defined by the supervisory controller. These software functions were tested successfully both in simulation and finally in prototype vehicle. The results obtained from the tests done with prototype vehicle showed successful operation of the cathode and cooling modules in addition to proper communication with the supervisory controller. Ultimately, the fuel cell system succeeded in provided electric power demanded by the vehicle, such that the vehicle was able to run solely on hydrogen.

    Thesis abstract: The Action Research Arm Test (ARAT) is a measurement tool to assess post-stroke upper extremities motor function. However, ARAT scoring can be subjective and limited only to determining performance quality. Therefore, in this thesis, we presented a novelty hand motion system to improve the evaluation with the ARAT. The hand motion system is composed of a data glove CyberGlove II®, a Finger force sensing module, and a Graphical User Interface (GUI). In this thesis, three studies were conducted to evaluate whether the hand motion system improved the assessment with the ARAT. Firstly, in Chapter 4, we performed an analysis on healthy subjects using the hand motion system during the performance of the ARAT. We determined the fingertip force and the flexion angles of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints of the fingers (index, middle, ring, and little) and carpometacarpal (CMC), MCP, and interphalangeal (IP) for the thumb. The results showed that the flexion angles and the finger force depend on the object size and the type of grasp used (power, grip, or pinch). In addition, an important database of the range of motion of the finger joints and finger forces was obtained. Secondly, Chapter 5 evaluated post-stroke patients with right (RH) and left (LH) hemiparesis to identify joint impairments and compensatory grasping strategies. For this purpose, an experimental study was carried out with 12 patients six months after a stroke with a global ARAT score = 10. The range of motion (ROM) of the finger joints in stroke patients was compared with the data obtained in Chapter 4. Stroke patients with LH and RH showed significantly lower flexion angles in the MCP joints of the Index and Middle fingers than the Control group. However, RH patients showed larger flexion angles in the PIP joints of the Index, Middle, Ring, and Little fingers. In contrast, LH patients showed larger flexion angles in the PIP joints of the Middle and Little fingers. Therefore, the results showed that RH and LH patients used compensatory strategies involving increased flexion at the PIP joints for decreased flexion in the MCP joints. In addition, the hand motion system allows the detection of finger joint impairments in stroke patients that are not visible from ARAT scores. Finally, in Chapter 6, we developed classification models to predict whether activities with similar ARAT scores were performed by a healthy subject or by a subject with stroke. For this purpose, we used three classification algorithms: Support Vector Machine (SVM), Random Forest (RF), and K-N Neighbors (KNN). The results showed that the SVM classifier had the best performance, with a precision of 98.3% and an accuracy of 94.5 %. However, the dataset showed class imbalance and the classification models presented a low recall, especially in the stroke class. Therefore, we implemented class balance using the technique Borderline-SMOTE (BSM). After data balancing, the models showed a significantly higher accuracy, recall, f1-score, and AUC. The SVM classifier showed a higher performance with a precision of 98% and a recall of 97.5% after data balancing. Hence, the results showed that classification models based on human hand motion features combined with BSM achieve higher performance.Therefore, we conclude that integrating the hand motion system during the performance of the ARAT allows for a quantitative, accurate, and sensitive assessment. Furthermore, the proposed method is of clinical relevance as it will help health care professionals to create more specific and effective rehabilitation programs for functional recovery of the hand in patients with stroke and other chronic diseases.Keywords: finger joints; finger force; ARAT; stroke; CyberGlove II; machine learning; hand; rehabilitation

    Thesis abstract: Some electrical devices in direct current (DC) networks, under certain operating characteristics, behave as constant power loads (CPLs). This behavior is defined by presenting negative incremental resistance, compromising the stability of the supply networks. The current evolution of electrical networks favors the proliferation and increase of this unstable behavior.In this research, a stability analysis method is presented that allows verifying a sufficient condition for the local stability of linear and time invariant DC circuits with CPLs, for all possible equilibria of the system that arise when varying the power consumed by the CPLs. Furthermore, this method is expressed by linear matrix inequalities that can be verified by convex programming.It is also proposed to connect a stabilizing device in parallel, given an accessible connection port in the electrical network, which through an adequate control law, allows ensuring the local stability of linear and time-invariant DC networks with CPLs. The techniques used to obtain the control law have been H8 control, self-tuning control, and non-linear control.In addition, it is shown that the proposed solution meets the objectives established a priori, based on the worst-case regarding the system stability, through numerical results in simulation and experimental results obtained in a prototype plant designed and built within the framework of this research.

    Thesis abstract: Critical energy challenges are forcing a rapid modification of the current energy infrastructure. lndeed, larger renewable energypenetration, more distributed generation and storage, and higher degree of autonomy are to be expected. In this new context,energy systems are frequently required to modify its current set-point and/or control inputs, in arder to address a continuouslychanging energy demand/generation and/or reduce the effect of external disturbances. Technical, physical and economicalconstraints limit the amount of sensors that can be incorporated in energy systems. Consequently, there will be significantfluctuations of multi-dimensional unmeasured internal variables during the system operation, which have to be adequatelymonitored by the proper estimation algorithms.Motivated by this aspect, this Ph.D work explores the idea of implementing observers in energy systems. Specifically, the Ph.Dwork studies the design of continuous-time nonlinear observers that can operate in systems with strong nonlinearities, significantmeasurement noise and parametric uncertainty.The first part of the work presents the nonlinear observer design in presence of measurement noise and unmodelleddisturbances in a unified framework. As specific case studies, this part explores the high-gain observer (and its more modernmodifications) and the parameter estimation-based observer. In the second part of the work, the idea of implementing filters toreduce the effect of measurement noise is studied. In this part, multiple filter architectures are studied and proposed, and thestability conditions for the observer filter/coupling are provided. The third part explores the idea of reducing parametric uncertaintyby means of an adaptive redesign. Multiple limitations are identified in the adaptive redesign approach and sorne solutions areproposed to relax them. In the last two parts, the developed theory is implemented to salve two relevant practica! problems inenergy systems. The first part is related to a monitoring problem in a hydrogen polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell. Thesecond one consists in a cybersecurity problem in a DC-microgrid with unknown constant power loads. The proposed solutionsare validated through numerical simulations and in a real experimental prototype.

    Thesis abstract: The introduction of technologies disruptive of Industry 4.0 in the workplace integrated through human cyber-physical systems causes operators to face new challenges. These are reflected in the increased demands presented in theoperator's capabilities physical, sensory, and cognitive demands. In this research, cognitive demands are the most interesting. In this perspective, assistants are presented as a possible solution, not as a tool but as a set of functions that amplify human capabilities, such as exoskeletons, collaborative robots for physical capabilities, virtual and augmented reality for sensory capabilities. Perhaps chatbots and softbots for cognitive capabilities, then the need arises to ask ourselves: How can operator assistance systems 4.0 be developed in the context of industrial manufacturing? In which capacities does the operator need more assistance?From the current paradigm of systematization, different approaches are used within the context of the workspace in industry 4.0. Thus, the functional resonance analysis method (FRAM) is used to model the workspace from thesociotechnical system approach, where the relationships between the components are the most important among the functions to be developed by the human-robot team. With the use of simulators for both robots and robotic systems, the behavior of the variability of the human-robot team is analyzed. Furthermore, from the perspective of cognitive systems engineering, the workspace can be studied as a joint cognitive system, where cognition is understood as distributed, in a symbiotic relationship between the human and technological agents.The implementation of a case study as a human-robot collaborative workspace allows evaluating the performance of the human-robot team, the impact on the operator's cognitive abilities, and the level of collaboration achieved in the human-robot team through a set of metrics and proven methods in other areas, such as cognitive systems engineering, human-machine interaction, and ergonomics. We conclude by discussing the findings and outlook regarding future research questions and possible developments.

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.
