Diagnosis of strongyloidiasis using stool examination remains unsatisfactory due to the lack of sensitivity and fastidious techniques. In this work, we investigated the value of an anti-Strongyloides IgG enzyme immunoassay (EIA), using a panel of 207 sera retrospectively collected from patients with definitive diagnoses of strongyloidiasis (n=57), other(More)
A new approach to real-time collision avoidance for dexterous 7-DOF arms and supportive simulation and expem”mentai results are presented. The collision avoidance problem is formulated and solved as a force control problem. Virtual forces opposing intrusion of the arm into the obstacle safety zone are computed in real time. These forces are then nullified(More)
The paper presents ezperimental results that demonstrate a new approach to real-time collision avoidance for 7-DOF arms. The collision avoidance problem is formulated and solved as a force control problem. Virtual forces opposing intrusion. of the u m into the obstacle safety zone are computed in real time. These forces are then nullified b y employing an(More)
The NASA Telerobotic Research Project is exploring the feasibility of using robots in space for on-orbit assembly, maintenance, and repair operations. Dual-arm satellite grappling is one of its more challenging tasks. The task involves the integration of technologies developed in the Sensing and Perception (S&P) Subsystem for object acquisition and(More)
