Touch Point Finger Pad Digitizer
BackgroundSignificant advancements have been made in non-clinical surgical training simulations - virtual reality, robotics and computer simulations have enabled a wide range of skills to be practiced and tested. However, there is still significant interest in finding ways to monitor learning progress and confirm proficiency.A surgical trainee has ...
Rice Straw Agri-Silica
Background:Rice is one of the most prevalent food crops in the world. In 2005, the International Rice Research Institute estimated global production at 618 million tonnes. Each tonne of rice produces an equal amount of straw and 200 kg of husk as bi-products. In many countries, the rice straw bi-product is burned in open fields, generating smoke an...
Less Lethal Ammunitions for Peace Keeping
Background:Extensive research has been conducted in Canada and abroad on crowd control methods that are effective and that provide the greatest degree of safety possible for both the public and the police.For crowd control and peacekeeping missions there is both a need and pressure for less lethal ammunition. While there are alternative forms of le...
A Magneto-Rheological-Based Actuation System
Background:With current means of actuation, very few options exist that provide multiple degrees of freedom (DOF) and move independently without the addition of multiple motors. For instance, conventional means of safely actuating robotic devices involve the use of specially modified servo motors at each joint to control motion. In most application...
A Magneto-Rheological-Based Clutch System for Robots
Background:The new frontier in the development of industrial automation lies in the area of small and medium enterprises where robots will be required to work in close proximity to human counterparts. Conventional means of safely actuating robotic devices involve the use of specially modified servo motors at each joint to control motion, in conjunc...
