We show the design and implementation of a robot controller with a unique locomotion system. We demonstrate that a discrete-event simulation based design provides a cost-effective, flexible  , open workflow for modular robotic development. The robot is designed to translate against a vertical surface using cables fixed at one end that can wind on… (More)
Wind tunnel Pressure Sensitive Paint (PSP) ratio techniques require accurate registration between wind-on and wind-off camera image pairs. The Piecewise Linear Resection (PLR) method of removing registration due to physical wind tunnel model motion and deformation errors can account for nonlinear deformations and benefits from increased tracking point… (More)
– Surgery Simulation techniques are emerging as a viable training and rehearsal tool. This paper describes the current state of tissue modeling workflow and implementations and describes a tissue model implementation using agent-based framework for parallel computation.
Cell-DEVS is an extension to the DEVS formalism that allows the definition of cellular models. CD++ is a modeling and simulation tool that implements Discrete Event Simulation (DEVS) and Cell-DEVS formalisms. The methodology proposed in this paper uses the Cell-DEVS formalism and C++ tool chain [4, 5] to model Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV) search in a… (More)
