A mobile ground survey application that employs remote sensing as a primary means of area coverage is highlighted. It is distinguished from mobile robotic area coverage problems that employ contact or proximity-based sensing. The focus is on a specific concept for performing mobile surveys in search of biogenic gases on planetary surfaces using a(More)
Dopamine D(2) receptor antagonism contributes to the therapeutic action of antipsychotic drugs (APDs) but also produces undesirable side effects, including extrapyramidal motor deficits, cognitive dulling, and prolactinemia. The introduction of atypical APDs was a significant advancement in the treatment of schizophrenia. Whereas these agents are D(2)(More)
This paper proposes the development of an RFID system to aid in the navigation of autonomous mobile robots. The use of the system to enable a mobile robot to estimate its pose is described. The paper presents a method to obtain fine orientation readings, a task neglected by former works. We also analyze one uncertainty source of this approach. Experimental(More)
This paper presents an agent-based robot control (ARC) architecture. ARC features a flexible real-time control system, which is suitable for multi-robot cooperative tasks. It also provides an efficient platform for building up a multi-robot system consisting of heterogeneous robots. In this paper, an experimental study of this architecture is investigated.(More)
Due to the variability in performance among cochlear implant (CI) patients, it is becoming increasingly important to find ways to optimally fit patients with speech processing strategies. This paper proposes an approach based on neural networks, which can be used to automatically optimize the performance of CI patients. The neural network model is(More)
