— Map based navigation is a crucial task for any mobile robot. On many platforms this problem is addressed by applying Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) based on metric grid-maps. Such solutions work well on robots with adequate resources and limited workspaces. Platforms with limited payload which operate in unbounded workspaces, do often have(More)
Map-based navigation is a crucial task for any mobile robot. Usually, in an unknown environment this problem is addressed by applying Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) based on metric grid-maps. However, such maps are in general rather computational expensive and do not scale well. Insects are able to cover large distances and reliably find back(More)
Interactions between specific operant conditioning and ongoing treadmill walking have been characterized in several previous investigations of mechanisms that coordinate locomotion. The present study examined a higher walking velocity in which contractile forces and, by inference, reflex behavior, might be more powerful. Two subjects walked on a(More)
TQM is a managerial innovation that is likely to have profound consequences on the delivery of health services. As an innovation, it is important that attention be given to the fundamental research issues associated with implementation and impact. Using a variance and process perspective, selected research issues are identified within organizations and(More)
The advantages of customized Laboratory Information Management's Systems (LIMS) are their focus on the special aspects of their users' needs. Differences in the research and development or production chain in the individual organizations lead to an increase of interest in customized systems. Usually, also for customized systems, the core software is(More)
To negotiate acceptable environmental accommodations, multiinstitutional systems undertake four types of solutions or transformations: environmental manipulations, internal process modifications, strategic modifications, and most drastically, total reconfigurations. It is helpful to examine the determining factors of these transformations and to look at(More)
