“Medical check” of monuments


The well-known theme line of “prevention is better than cure” can extend not only to humans but also to monuments. In particular, to historical constructions, affected by several “diseases” related with the environmental conditions, natural hazards such as earthquakes, etc.

As the humans, the cultural heritage requires regular examinations (preventive actions), which are not carried out nowadays, in contrast with the benefits provided by them. Derived from these action systems (corrective solutions) it is required to invest huge amounts of money to patch up the monument.

According with this needed, the awarded research group TIDOP (Information technologies for the 3D modelling of complex objects) of the University of Salamanca (USAL) is working on a pioneering project with the collaboration of other countries and universities such as the University of Minho (Portugal), Blaise-Pascal (France) and Santa Maria la Real between others.

One of its members, the engineering Luis Javier Sánchez Aparicio, stresses the need to change our minds to a preventive approach. With the aim of maintaining in the best conditions our cultural heritage, became a sign of identify.

“These constructions are monuments with many years and pathologies. Said pathologies can compromise the stability of the construction”, argued Luis Javier. Luis Javier reiterates the need to change the current tendency, focuses on corrective actions to preventive solutions. Thanks to this, it is possible to optimize the available funds, preventing the loss of the building authenticity as well as expensive actions.

Also, said project is supported by public institutions such as the Instituto Andaluz de Patrimonio, the Dirección General de Cultura del Norte de Portugal and a French museum. This transnational consortium (with universities of several countries as well as private and public institutions) will ensure the correct implementation of the proposed initiative. Resulting in a simple, powerful and intuitive tridimensional representation of the monument. This representation enables the evolution of the construction through the time. Said model also will have an artificial intelligence able to predict future problems on the monument. All of these allow the correct evaluation by the experts (architects, engineers, etc.).

This project will use the last technology (drone systems with digital cameras and laser scanners) able to reconstruct in 3D monuments (including monuments in critical state). Reconstructed the models, an intelligent sensor network will be installed on the monument with a minimum impact on the monument.

All of them (the 3D systems as well as monitoring sensors) will be integrated into a common BIM (Building Information Modelling) platform, able to interpret the raw data and provide an intuitive model for the end-user. According to the Engineering Luis Javier Sánchez Aparicio, this project will involve not only end-user but also small and medium size companies involved in the construction sector.

The creation of a non-profit organization will provide the finishing touch. This organization will ensure the sustainability along the time of the project.

Indentifying the Heritage’s wounds


A PhD student of the University of Salamanca develops a low cost methodology to evaluate, in a rigorous way, pathologies in façades and constructions without contact and through new sensors and technologies.

Buildings, environments, sculptures, ruins, churches, murals, museums, paintings or streets,  they are living testaments of the humanity and form the most value heritage of the present and future. However, despite of their value, many of them present pathological processes (wounds) as a result of several factors such as degradation over time or due to human activity.

To avoid this situation Susana del Pozo, a PhD student of the University of Salamanca, is engaged in a project that attempts to develop a low-cost methodology able to detect “in a rigorous way” the pathologies of façades and civil constructions. Without contact with them and by using new sensors and technologies.

In this way, multispectral imaging is placed as a feasible no-destructive solution. By contrast to other inspection protocols in civil engineering and cultural heritage fields. This method requires as input espectral information from passive systems (digital or multispectral cameras) or active systems (like the Terretrial Laser Scanners), operating in the infrared spectrum. “These devices can capture the reflected light from materials, and if these proportion of light is known, it is possible to evaluate pathologies of them”, explains Susana.  Therefore, the challenge is to transform the output digital signal of each sensor in its corresponding physical value of reflectance. This process is commonly known as radiometric calibration.

In this project, Susana has used a low-cost sensor: a multispectral camera with six channels, several canvas and color vinyls (used as control surfaces) and natural surfaces/materials (as check surfaces). Furthermore, an self-developed software called MULRACS has been used to assist in the calibration process. “MULRACS allows the transformation of images from any kind of sensor to reflectance values through an intuitive interface and data processing”, claims Susana.

Nowadays, routine inspections of such buildings are mainly visual, involving subjective results. Taking this into account, the develop of new methodologies able to evaluate building pathologies in a rigorous and remote way, are a key for the correct maintenance of such constructions, particularly in areas that are more exposed to degradation agents.

The combination of a low cost hardware-software makes this methodology “unique” in the market. It allows performing different studies and analysis materials, opening new possibilities for different disciplines relating with conservation and constructions. The main advantage of the methodology lies in the possibility of capture geometric and radiometric information at the same time, allowing the quantification of the detected pathologies.

This approach is based on the interaction between the energy and the construction´s materials. In particular, the methodology evaluates the reflected light for each of the wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. Finally, the so called “spectral signature” of each material is obtained.

In this way, Susana del Pozo uses several devices -passive and active sensors- with the aim of capturing the reflected radiation from materials of historic façades and civil infrastructures, for which a correct planning is crucial to obtain quality results.

The added value of this project, which starts in September of 2011 and is linked to her Doctoral Thesis, is the cost saving, investing in low cost and flexible methodologies, in which aerial platforms such as UAVs or paramotors can be used flying at moderate heights, for which atmospheric effects are negligible.

Geomatics: a science that can be applied to anything


Geomatic can be considered, nowadays, a engineering able to provide solutions to the real world. Said science allow us a broad field of possibilities, from virtual realities where the user can interact with a world full of possibilities, to image based modeling strategies where the conventional (capture by tablets, smartphones or reflex cameras) digital images can be used for the tridimensional reconstruction of scenes (buildings, objects, welds, etc.). The latter alternative, TIDOP research group specialty, finds followers in different fields (such as architecture, medicine or hydrology). Among which can be name: the 3D reconstruction of welds for technical inspections; the road management or the cultural heritage conservation.

In short, Geomatic is a transversal science, with a broad field of applications, “the engineering of engineerings” since many “land” science exploit its advantages (mining, forestall or civil engineering). In fact, a Forbes study place this science between the 10 professions with more future, which the young people unknown.

Análisis termográfico de edificios


El uso de la termografía infrarroja comMapaEnergeticoo técnica sobradamente provada para la inspección de edificios y localización de patologías como fugas de aire, humedades, etc. Nos permite realizar un examen visual “in-situ” de calidad de los objetos de estudio gracias a la posibilidad de visualizar en tiempo real los resultados pudiendo detectar sin dificultad los desperfectos o elementos característicos de estos. Estas técnicas de medición cualitativa nos proporcionan la posibilidad de realizar inspecciones rápidas y eficaces sin contacto directo con el objeto y de forma no destructiva, lo que disminuye tanto el riesgo de incidentes para los operarios como los daños producidos en los propios objetos de estudio ocasionados por otras técnicas intrusivas. Además, también se ha demostrado la utilidad de la termografía infrarroja como técnica puramente de medida a través de su utilización para el cálculo de propiedades termofísicas de materiales tales como difusividad y transmitancia térmica.

En el caso de termografía cualitativa, las publicaciones existentes tratan de estudios realizados in-situ, principalmente en edificios históricos o elementos del patrimonio cultural, mientras que los estudios cualitativos se realizan, en la mayor parte de los casos, en laboratorios sobre muestras de tamaño limitado. En aquellos casos en los que se han realizado estudios termográficos cuantitativos sobre edificios in-situ, los valores de temperatura son empleados con el objetivo de obtener propiedades termofísicas (conductancia térmica) reales del cerramiento, sin embargo su distribución espacial no es considerada.

Conjugar ambas aplicaciones permitirá la automatización del cálculo de pérdidas de calor a partir de las temperaturas medidas con una cámara termográfica. De este modo, no solo se usa la termografía para representar el estado de la pared, sino que también se usan los valores de temperatura contenidos en la termografía para la extracción de parámetros métricos del edificio en estudio, por lo que la hibridación de la información termográfica con el material cartográfico de precisión permitiría extraer la geometría real del objeto de estudio con textura termográfica, pudiendo así realizar mediciones precisas de los elementos de interés directamente sobre el resultado obtenido.




Estudios como el publicado por EuroACE en 2010 colocan la mejora de la eficiencia energética en edificación en cabeza de las acciones necesarias para la reducción de emisiones de gases del efecto invernadero y gasto energético, así como para servir de empuje a la generación de empleo. Especial es el caso del parque de edificios ya construidos, la mayoría procedente de los años 1940-80, con normativa inexistente y recursos escasos. En ellos las obras de rehabilitación energética pueden suponer un ahorro de hasta el 75% en consumo de energía. En España existen 13 millones de viviendas susceptibles de intervención, cuya rehabilitación energética supondría una reducción de las emisiones del sector del 34% con respecto al año 2001.

Building thermographic analysis



The use of infraMapaEnergeticored thermography as a widely tested technique for building inspection and location of pathologies such as air leakage and moisture allows the performance of  quality “in-situ” visual examination of the objects under study due to the possibility of obtaining real-time results, being able to detect without difficulty damages or material characteristics. This qualitative measurement technique provides the capability of doing quick, effective and non-destructive inspection without direct contact with the object under study, decreasing the risk of incidents to operators and the damage of the objects comparing with other intrusive techniques. Furthermore, the utility of infrared thermography as a measurement technique has been proved by its use for the determination of the thermophysical properties of materials such as diffusivity and thermal transmittance.

In the qualitative approach, some authors have performed in-situ studies, mainly in historical buildings or cultural heritage elements, whereas quantitative studies are performed mainly in laboratories with limited size samples. In those cases where quantitative thermography studies were performed in-situ, temperature values were employed in order to obtain the real thermophysical properties (thermal conductance) of the building envelope, but their spatial distribution is not considered.

Combine both applications will enable the automation of the heat loss computation from the measured temperatures with a thermographic camera. Thus, the thermography is not only used to represent the state of the wall, but also temperature values represented on the thermography for extracting the metric parameters of the study object so the hybridization of the thermographic information with precise cartographic material would  allow to extract the actual geometry of the object of study with thermal texture, being able to make accurate measurements of the elements of interest directly on the obtained results.




Studies such as the one published by EuroACE in 2010, places improved energy efficiency in building construction at the top of the list of actions that need to be taken to reduce greenhouse gases and energy costs, in addition to acting as a stimulus to generate employment. In particular is the case of existing buildings stock, most of which dates back to the period 1940-80, constructed using non-existent standards and scarce resources. Here, energy refurbishment works could represent a saving of up to 75% in energy consumption. In Spain there are 13 million homes that could be the subject of intervention, where energy refurbishment could result in a reduction in sector emissions of 34% compared to 2001.

Mobile Laser System (MLS) applied to urban tree inventory

In urbanized Western Europe trees are considered an important component of the built-up environment. This also means that there is an increasing demand for tree inventories. Laser mobile mapping systems provide an efficient and accurate way to sample the 3D road surrounding including notable roadside trees. In this research line, a processing chain aiming at the extraction of tree locations and tree sizes from laser mobile mapping data is reached.

  • Vegetation extraction


  • Tree parameter extraction



Such steps, in combination with code optimization are expected to be sufficient to reach the final goal of automatized estimation of features sampled by mobile mapping at a rate that matches the acquisition speed and at a quality that matches the result of a human operator.

Drones terrestres aplicados al modelizado tridimensional e inspección de infraestructuras críticas y de difícil acceso


Equipar drones con sensores láser, detectores de obstáculos y sistemas de control remoto permite obtener de forma segura y fiable los modelos tridimensionales de escenarios críticos, entendiendo como escenarios críticos todos aquellos escenarios en los que una persona correría peligro realizando los trabajos.

Este tipo de escenarios abarcan desde grutas angostas y estrechas a las que es difícil acceder, hasta escenarios industriales complejos, como subestaciones eléctricas, en las que existen riesgos de descargas eléctricas, salas de calderas, edificios con problemas estructurales etc.

A pesar de ser lugares críticos, su mantenimiento e inspección es un aspecto clave en el campo del control preventivo de averías y deformaciones, por lo que obtener el modelo tridimensional de estos lugares es fundamental. En este sentido, los drones terrestres, cada vez más sofisticados, permiten integrar escáner láser terrestre para capturar el entorno, asi como detectores de obstáculos y diferentes sistemas de comunicación, de modo que pueden moverse de forma autónoma o ser teledirigidos de forma remota.

Hasta el momento se ha investigado la integración de drones terrestres y escáner láser utilizando dos metodologías de trabajo diferentes, según el grado de precisión y detalle que se necesite y dependiendo de las dimensiones del espacio en el que se esté trabajando.


Finalmente, se está investigando la manera de combinar los modelos tridimensionales obtenidos por los drones terrestres con datos procedentes de drones aéreos equipados con cámaras fotográficas o cámaras termográficas. Combinar ambos modelos es esencial para obtener una cobertura total de la escena de estudio y poder detectar anomalías en cualquier lugar. Ésta línea de acción se está introduciendo para controlar subestaciones eléctricas y plantas solares fotovoltaicas ya que en ambos casos es posible detectar zonas con un calentamiento anormal que indiquen un funcionamiento que deberá revisarse.

Land drones applied to three-dimensional modeling and control of complex industrial environments


Land drones can be armed with different devices such as terrestrial laser scanner, obstacle detectors or remote control systems, in order to provide accurate 3D models of unattended or critical environments in a safe way.

Environments like narrow caves that are difficult to access, electrical substations where there are risk of electric shock, boiler rooms or buildings with structural problems are considered critical environments for human operators due to the danger they entail.

Despite being critical spaces, its maintenance, inspection and control are essential to prevent damages and detect breakdowns, so accurate three-dimensional models are indispensable. For this purpose, terrestrial drones allow the integration of terrestrial laser scanners to capture the environment, as well as obstacle detectors and different communication systems, so that they can be autonomous vehicles or remote-controlled vehicles.

Depending on the accuracy needed and the dimensions of the study case, two different  combinations of technologies have been explored, both combining laser scanner with land drones.

To complete this research line, we are working in different methodologies to combine 3D models obtained with land drones and data obtained with aerial drones equipped with conventional cameras or thermo graphic cameras.

Mix both kind of models make the three-dimensional model much more complete and it is possible to detect pathologies in almost everywhere.  Some of this process has been used with success in electrical substations and photovoltaic solar plants, detecting, for example, anomalies in some panels.

Artificial Intelligence and the Impact of Wolves in Ávila

Throughout history wolves and humans have had a conflictive and complex love-hate relationship. On one hand, wolves are frequently the culprits of livestock predation, creating tension with local farmers and landowners, while on the other, their domestic relative the dog is considered a cultural extension of the family. Due to the attacks produced on livestock, tension has formed over the years among rural populations. Unfortunately, Castilla y León is one of the country’s most affected areas by wolf attacks on livestock; with Ávila being a focal point for most of these damages. fotowolf The objectives of this line of research are to use artificially intelligent algorithms to model and study the impact of wolves in the province of Ávila. Using spatial data, statistical Geographical Information System (GIS) approaches and Machine/Deep Learning, we hope to provide a new perspective to the study of wolf activities and attacks on local livestock. animaleswolf The advantages of artificially intelligent algorithms are multiple. These algorithms provide a new means of predicting when and where the next attack is most likely to occur. Likewise, additional research may be able to highlight which animals are more likely to be attacked. This data could be of great benefit to local agricultural communities, thus helping protect their assets and help alleviate tension that could better protect the wolf from danger of extinction.

La Inteligencia Artificial y el Impacto del Lobo en Ávila

A lo largo de la historia los humanos y los lobos han tenido una relación de amor-odio bastante compleja y conflictiva. Por un lado, en muchas ocasiones los lobos son los culpables de los daños o ataques al ganado, generando tensión con ganaderos y terratenientes, mientras que por otro lado el perro, su pariente domesticado, es considerado culturalmente como un miembro más de la familia. Debido a los ataques al ganado, con el paso de los años se han ido acrecentando las tensiones con las poblaciones rurales. Por desgracia, la Comunidad Autónoma de Castilla y León es una de las zonas del país más afectadas por ataques de lobo, siendo Ávila uno de los focos que más daños acumula. fotowolf Los objetivos de esta línea de investigación es emplear algoritmos de inteligencia artificial para modelar y estudiar el impacto del lobo en la provincia de Ávila. Utilizando datos espaciales, enfoques estadísticos de Sistemas de Información Geográfica (SIG) y algoritmos de aprendizaje computacional, esperamos poder presentar una nueva perspectiva para el estudio de las actividades de los lobos y sus ataques al ganado local en la península. animaleswolf Las ventajas que presenta la inteligencia artificial son múltiples. Estos algoritmos son capaces de predecir con alta precisión dónde y cuándo es más probable que se produzca un nuevo ataque. De la misma forma, la investigación adicional puede destacar cual es el tipo de ganado más propenso a ser atacado. Estos datos pueden beneficiar a las comunidades ganaderas locales, ayudando a proteger a sus animales y a aliviar las tensiones generadas por los ataques, lo que puede a su vez ayudar a proteger mejor al lobo de su extinción.
