Forest Fire Prevention through Uncertainty Minimization in Surveillance

By |

Forest fires prevention and fighting has been getting increased attention from the media following consecutive disasters where a combination of poor planning, more extreme weather conditions, lack of maintenance of the forest given a rural abandonment, etc. have had huge financial costs and claiming human lives. On that framework, a much-needed effort in finding technological

Shuttle drone for launch and capture in cooperative and non-cooperative scenarios

By |

This project aims to address several scientific and technological challenges towards the use of shuttle drones to perform launch and capture maneuvers of other vehicles or objects. A first scenario is considered where the shuttle drones cooperate with the vehicles to be launched or captured, either relaying information about their planned motion or actively synchronizing

Mechano-dependent capture of circulating tumour cells: a cell-ECM based approach coupled with cancer specific glycomarkers

By |

Epithelial Circulating Tumour Cells (CTCs) often have reduced expression of epithelial markers, such as E-cadherin and isolation based on physical properties is not a selective approach. As such, existing methods to capture live CTCs hold major weaknesses. Herein, we take advantage of the adhesion properties of invasive cancer cells, namely their specific interaction with the
