This paper reports modeling and control of a microsized polymer aggregate of magnetic particles inside an artery, using a MRI device for supplying propulsion in order to achieve targeted chemotherapy. Non-Newtonian behavior of blood is considered, as well as wall effects and interactions, resulting in a highly nonlinear model. A backstepping approach is(More)
This paper reports precise modeling and controller/ observer design for a microsized polymer aggregate of magnetic particles inside an artery, using a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) device for supplying propulsion in order to achieve targeted chemotherapy. Non-Newtonian behaviour of blood is taken into account, as well as wall effects and interactions,(More)
In this paper, we present the design of a new magnetic nano and microforce sensor for microbiological applications. The sensing part of the sensor presents a naturally stable six degrees of freedom equilibrium state using the combination of upthrust buoyancy and magnetic force. The sensor allows force measurement without deformation of the sensing element(More)
This paper presents the dynamic behaviour modelling of a horizontal triangular platform, used as the sensing part of a microforce sensor. This sensor is based on a magnetic and a buoyancy principle. A particular configuration used to obtain a linear model is presented. This linear model will be essential for the future control of the system, in order to(More)
The National Partnership for Women & Families is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that uses public education and advocacy to promote fairness in the workplace, access to quality health care and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family. Founded in 1971 as the Women's Legal Defense Fund, the National Partnership has grown(More)
