Lines of investigation
|Smart arrays design||Using simulation-based techniques and along with genetic algorithms, geometries are designed for random-type sensor arrays.||Lara del Val Puente|
|Design and construction of intelligent arrays with MEMS technology||Using microphones/ A/D converters with MEMS technology, smart microphones are designed and built, implementing real-time FPGA architectures.||Alberto Izquierdo Fuente / Juan Jose Villacorta Calvo|
|Biometric system based on intelligent acoustic sensors||Through an array of acoustic sensors, a person is scanned (analogously to ultrasound / tac / resonance techniques), obtaining their acoustic response for a set of specific frequencies and positions.|
With this information and using advanced classification techniques, systems are designed to identify an extensive set of people and therefore to establish a biometric system of reduced and non-intrusive cost.

|Surveillance and monitoring systems using intelligent acoustic sensors||By means of an extensive set of sensors of the same type (called array) consisting of microphones and loudspeakers that are arranged in a plane with an established geometry, and using techniques (called beamforming) that allow to point the array electronically to A point of space, (without the antenna having to make any movement), a monitoring space is explored, detecting the objects that are present, estimating its spatial position and finally making an estimate of its trajectory and its kinematic parameters (Speed , Acceleration, etc.).||Alberto Izquierdo Fuente / Juan Jose Villacorta Calvo|
