Mobile applications are becoming increasingly widespread and complex. Many of these applications suffer from usability issues, including information overload, screen clutter, lack of task support and limited interaction mechanisms. Adaptive user interfaces (AUIs) have been proposed to address some of these usability issues. The aim of this paper is to(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of the study was to evaluate the safety of non-anesthesia provider (NAPP) administered propofol sedation in patients undergoing non-advanced gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopic procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pubmed, Embase, Cochrane central register of controlled trials, Scopus, and Web of Science databases were searched for(More)
This paper presents a modular in-pipeline climbing robot with a novel compliant foldable OmniCrawler mechanism. The circular cross-section of the OmniCrawler module enables a holonomic motion to facilitate the alignment of the robot in the direction of bends. Additionally, the crawler mechanism provides a fair amount of traction, even on slippery surfaces.(More)
Ninety-six (4/dog) percutaneous transabdominal hepatic needle biopsy specimens were obtained from 24 dogs each weighing 10 to 24 kg. Two biopsies were performed in each dog prior to and 5 days after hepatopathy was experimentally induced. Information pertaining to the difficulty encountered in obtaining hepatic tissue is reported for the first of each pair(More)
Modern day technology has extended its reach below 20 nm. All kinds of effects are to be seen in MOS devices due to different leakage mechanisms at deep sub-micron levels. These lead to errors in the system. Error tolerance (ET), an emerging concept in the field of VLSI design and test: by easing the restriction on accuracy, can be used to have improvements(More)
Studying snake robot locomotion in a cluttered environment has been a complicated task because the motion model is discontinuous due to the physical contact with obstacles, and the contact force cannot be determined solely by contact positions. We present a unique mathematical model of the robot interacting with obstacles in which the contact forces are(More)
