We evaluate a technique that uses an embedded network deployed pervasively throughout an environment to aid robots in navigation. The embedded nodes do not know their absolute or relative positions and the mobile robots do not perform localization or mapping. Yet, the mobile robot is able to navigate through complex environments effectively. First, we(More)
We provide an overview of the GNATs project. This project is aimed at using tens to thousands of inexpensive networked devices embedded in the environment to support mobile robot applications. We provide motivation for building these types of systems, introduce a development platform we have developed, review some of our and others' previous work on using(More)
The burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD) continues to increase worldwide. Patients with CKD are at greater risk of mortality from cardiovascular events than end-stage renal disease. This review describes the pathogenesis of dyslipidemia in CKD patients and the role of statins in reducing coronary heart disease morbidity and mortality. The major clinical(More)
