Track 1

Sensors and Artificial Intelligence for Hospitals/ Well Aging

Speakers


 Prof. Xavier Ferre (UPM), Prof. Hongming Zhu (TU), Prof. Ulises Cortés (UPC) and Prof. Ramon Pallàs (UPC)

Description


Taking the appropriate care of older adults is among the major ethical, technological, social and economic challenges currently faced by aging populations. The main aim of most proposals is to give the right amount of support allowing elders to live in a semi-autonomous way being many of these solutions based on the existence of a good companion (sociable/assistive) robot or in mobile apps.

 

The continuous increase of healthcare costs is endangering the sustainability of public health systems and hinders the provision of health care to everybody, everywhere and at any time. To fight against this there is also a growing effort to apply pervasive communication technologies to conceive new biosensors to enable remote monitoring and decision-making systems that yield the maximal benefit from the signals they provide.

Track 2

Architecture and Future Cites

Speakers


 Prof. José Miguel Fernández Güell (UPM), Prof. Linxue Li (TU) and Prof. Carles Crosas (UPC)

Description


Current approaches focusing on topics such as ecology, metabolism and urban mobility observed at the metropolitan scale will be discussed, based on the experience of research teams in using their own cities as the main laboratory.

Track 3

Urban Vehicles for future cities

Speakers

 

Prof. Felipe Jiménez (UPM), Prof. Jian Zhang (TU) and Prof. Daniel Serra (UPC and CARNET Project Manager)

Description


In the future city, mobility research converges on electric cars, autonomous mobility and new models of ownership, as shared autonomous vehicles that can deliver passengers, refuel and store themselves in current parking. This has to be accompanied by the urban infrastructure improvements needed to ensure pervasive connectivity.

Track 4

Smart Drone applications

Speakers


Prof. Ignacio Gómez (UPM), Prof. Xuefeng Yin (TU) and Prof. Pablo Royo (UPC)

Description


Smart Drones can be oriented to help cities better serve the people who live in them. Drones can be used to provide healthier food, to document accident scenes, to monitor construction sites and power lines, to provide coverage in emergency situations, and more. Modelling the radio channel, and the design of new software and applications are the topic of this track.

Track 5

Smart Cities. Designing Robotics Solutions with Smart Citizens

Speakers


 Prof. Wei Wang (TU) and Prof. Josep Paradells (UPC)

Description


As cities evolve, the requirement for generating new data from more sensors is growing exponentially, being the challenge not only sensor deployment but reliable backhaul networks and the implementation and management of open platforms. Traditional smart cities have been built deploying infrastructure on the city. This approach has been proved too expensive and intrusive. At present the availability of hyper-connectivity allows individuals or any type of object to report information that once processed can provide useful information about the city in a more transparent way.
