We present a multi-modal multi-robot interaction whereby a user can identify an individual or a group of robots using haptic stimuli, and name them using a voice command (e.g."<i>You two are green</i>"). Subsequent commands can be addressed to the same robot(s) by name (e.g. "<i>Green! Take off</i>!"). We demonstrate this as part of a real-world integrated(More)
BACKGROUND Xylanase can replace chemical additives to improve the volume and sensory properties of bread in the baking. Suitable baking xylanase with improved yield will promote the application of xylanase in baking industry. The xylanase XYNZG from the Plectosphaerella cucumerina has been previously characterized by heterologous expression in Pichia(More)
Platinum-based chemotherapy is emerging as the first line of treatment for castration resistant prostate cancer. Among the family of platinum (IV)-based compounds, a member known as CPA-7 inhibits the growth of multiple cancer cell lines. However, how and to what extent CPA-7 elicits its anti-prostate cancer effects in vivo is largely unknown. In this(More)
We present an integrated human-robot interaction system that enables a user to select and command a team of two Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) using voice, touch, face engagement and hand gestures. This system integrates multiple human [multi]-robot interaction interfaces as well as a navigation and mapping algorithm in a coherent semi-realistic scenario.(More)
X-ray transient absorption spectroscopy (XTA) and optical transient spectroscopy (OTA) were used to probe the Co(I) intermediate generated in situ from an aqueous photocatalytic hydrogen evolution system, with [RuII(bpy)3]Cl2·6H2O as the photosensitizer, ascorbic acid/ascorbate as the electron donor, and the Co-polypyridyl complex ([CoII(DPA-Bpy)Cl]Cl) as(More)
Colloidal quantum dots (QDs) have demonstrated great promise in artificial photosynthesis. However, the ultrasmall size hinders its controllable and effective interaction with cocatalysts. To improve the poor interparticle electronic communication between free QD and cocatalyst, we design here a self-assembled architecture of nanoparticles, QDs and Pt(More)
A visible-light-induced hydrogen evolution system based on a CdSe quantum dots (QDs)-TiO2 -Ni(OH)2 ternary assembly has been constructed under an ambient environment, and a bifunctional molecular linker, mercaptopropionic acid, is used to facilitate the interaction between CdSe QDs and TiO2 . This hydrogen evolution system works effectively in a basic(More)
