Increased concentrations of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), namely eicosapentaenoic acid (20:5; EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (22:6; DHA), have been shown to be beneficial in coronary artery disease (CAD). In the present study, the relationships between fish intake and concentrations of serum EPA and DHA and the effects of these fatty acids on serum(More)
This paper presents a new computationally-efficient method for vision-aided navigation (VAN) in autonomous robotic applications. While many VAN approaches are capable of processing incoming visual observations, incorporating loop-closure measurements typically requires performing a bundle adjustment (BA) optimization, that involves both all the past(More)
Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) has developed the Yellowfin, a small man-portable Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV). The mission for Yellowfin is to conduct autonomous collaborative operations. The multi-UUV design allows for a much wider swath of the ocean to be observed and monitored, while collaborative operations allow multiple aspects of a(More)
NASA’s DAWN spacecraft is on a mission to recover the gravity and structure of the asteroids Vesta and Ceres. Current approaches for developing a gravitational map of a celestial body rely upon use of the Deep Space Network of radio telescopes in conjunction with camera measurements for highly accurate tracking of orbiting bodies. Unfortunately, large(More)
As the ocean attracts great attention on environmental issues and resources as well as scientific and military tasks, the need for the use of underwater vehicle systems has become more apparent. Underwater vehicles represent a fast-growing research area and promising industry as advanced technologies in various subsystems develop and potential application(More)
