As the science of multi-agent systems matures, many developers are looking to deploy mission critical applications on distributed multi-agent systems (DMAS). Due to their distributed nature, designing survivable resource constrained DMAS is a serious challenge. Fortunately, the intrinsic flexibility of DMAS allows them to shift resources at runtime between(More)
In robotic contour following tasks such as sewing, grinding or applying adhesives, the robot moves a tool along a desired path on a workpiece. In order to compensate inaccuracies of the path definition a vision system can be used to guide the robot during task execution. This paper presents an algorithm to adjust the position and orientation of the tool by(More)
Faced with rising drug costs and an increase in type-1 beta-lactamase resistance, hospitals have been looking for ways to contain antibiotic costs while continuing to provide quality medical care. The hospital pharmacy at Montefiore Medical Center, Moses Division, has developed a number of programs aimed at identifying antibiotic prescribing trends and(More)

A test to determine the extent to which free iodine exists in the vapor phase above the surface of "complexed iodine" solutions is described. The procedure is based on the qualitative starch-iodine test. The results can be related to the degree of complexation occurring between the polymer used in the preparation and iodine. Four products were tested:(More)
