Force space navigation for robotics
This system is designed to provide spatial movement tracking and robotic end-effector positioning guidance without a secondary tracking system.Background:Computerized surgical navigation is increasing. Currently, joint replacement and neurosurgery are experiencing rapid growth in the development and clinical use of such systems, which provide impro...
An Asymmetrical Wireless Communication Transceiver
BackgroundExisting solutions for short range wireless communications between a host device and a number of user devices (or sensor nodes) are characterized by the symmetrical designs of their transceiver capabilities. The digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms necessary for channel equalization, compensation and synchronization require a substa...
Ultrasonic Interface Detector
Background:Ultrasonic level sensors are commonly used in industry. These sensors generally provide low-cost and accurate level measurements with certain important features and benefits. They are well suited for simple monitoring of liquid and solid levels. However, ultrasonic sensors actually measure the time it takes a signal to travel out and bac...
A Retrofit Wireless Sensor System for Industrial Plants
Background:In safety-critical industrial facilities such as oil and gas refineries, chemical processing and power generation plants, the requirements on the reliability of critical sensors are extremely high. Such sensors are typically wired and are used for emergency shutdown decision-making, process control or monitoring. Since these sensors usua...
Super-Hydrophobic and Super-Oleophobic Barrier Coating for Electronic Devices
Background:The electronics industry aims to deliver flexible, lightweight and inexpensive electronic products to consumers. The absence of effective barrier technologies meeting the water permeability demands is the single largest technical hurdle preventing the widespread commercialization of products such as organic solar cells (OPV), disposable ...
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...
