17β-estradiol (E2) has been shown to have neuroprotective effects in different central nervous system diseases. The mechanisms underlying estrogen neuroprotection in spinal cord injury (SCI) remain unclear. Previous studies have shown that autophagy plays a crucial role in the course of nerve injury. In this study, we showed that E2 treatment improved the(More)
This paper presents the experimental validation of a multiple mobile robot system with human-in-the-loop coordination. It has been proposed that the control framework for networked autonomous robots can be augmented by artificial functions for task abstraction, so that a human operator is able to operate a group of robots remotely. By utilizing the(More)
The thermal stability and reliability of AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) on Si substrates with a 2 μm-thick copper interconnection (Cu-INTC) metal were evaluated. The use of metallic copper as a conducting metal has the advantages of higher thermal conductivity, low cost and low sheet resistance. For comparison, traditional gold metal(More)
This paper presents system framework and control algorithm for a human operator to remotely teleoperate a group of mobile robots over a network with time-varying delays. By utilizing the task-space technique adopted from control of redundant robotic manipulator, a human operator is able to command the task abstraction of a multi-robot system under the(More)
