Developing Cyber-Physical Systems requires methods and tools to support simulation and verification of hybrid (both continuous and discrete) models. The Acumen modeling and simulation language is an open source testbed for exploring the design space of what rigorousbut-practical next-generation tools can deliver to developers of CyberPhysical Systems.

OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency of Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP) and to identify the associated factors, causative organisms and outcome of VAP in children admitted to ICU. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional, observational study. PLACE AND DURATION OF STUDY Medical ICU (MICU) of the Children's Hospital and Institute of Child Health, Lahore, from(More)
We continue to consider the question of what language features are needed to effectively model cyber-physical systems (CPS). In previous work, we proposed using a core language as a way to study this question, and showed how several basic aspects of CPS can be modeled clearly in a language with a small set of constructs. This paper reports on the result of(More)
This paper presents a novel sensor fusion methodology to dynamically detect weight variations and the position of an exoskeleton system. The proposed methodology is intended for tasks of lifting and lowering heavy weights with an industrial exoskeleton to substantially reduce spinal loads during these activities.
Manual material handling is one of the most frequent operations in industrial manufacturing processes. To avoid undesirable spinal loads, workers are often required to use external aid devices. This paper presents the analysis and design concept of a wearable assistive device for reducing the spinal loads during lifting tasks. A simplified model is used to(More)
This paper investigates Stability and maneuverability of Personal Mobility Vehicle (PMV). The purpose of PMV is to provide mobility in city centers. Suspension design concept of PMV is based on accommodating different road scenarios. Non conventional suspension mechanism is adopted to conform stability and handling. Analyses are performed on simple full(More)
Industrial wearable exoskeletons can assist the workers during manual handling of loads at manufacturing facilities. Today, one of their design challenges is to reduce weight so the worker can wear them for an extended length of time, without compromising torque and power requirements. Actuators can largely contribute to the overall weight of such devices.(More)
