783 rotating the whole laser-camera system mounted on a movable side of the robot; furthermore, cooperative 3-D laser scanning systems implemented by swarm robots or self-assembling modular robots will be investigated. ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thank L. Ricotti and N. Funaro for fabricating prototypes of the Replicator robotic mechanical… (More)
—In current practice, quantitative traffic data are most commonly acquired from inductive loops. In addition, video-image processing or time-of-flight laser systems can be used. These methods all have problems associated with them. We have developed a nonintrusive laser-based detection system for measurement of vehicle travel time. The basic detector unit… (More)
We have developed a Web-based interactive cam design package under the programming paradigm of the C H language environment. This package was initially developed as a teaching and learning tool for educational use in an undergraduate Computer-Aided Mechanism Design course. Because the system is Web-based and implemented through a client/server model with… (More)

There is a genius in this environmental slogan-for the scientist, it is often represented as a triangle, the strongest and most elemental geometric shape. For the religiously inclined, it calls to mind the authority of the Trinity. It… (More)
