Embedded systems design is becoming essential for engineering students of all majors, not just electrical engineering or computer science. However, using traditional techniques to teach the embedded design process - including the process to design, prototype and deploy an actual embedded system in a semester with traditional approaches presents substantial(More)
This paper describes the development of a fully autonomous humanoid robot for locomotion research and as the first US entry in to RoboCup. DARwIn (Dynamic Anthropomorphic Robot with Intelligence) is a humanoid robot capable of bipedal walking and performing human like motions. As the years have progressed, DARwIn has evolved from a concept to a(More)
(ABSTRACT) Mimicking human motion with a humanoid robot can prove to be useful for studying gaits, designing better prostheses, or assisting the elderly or disabled. Directly mimicking and implementing a motion of a human on a humanoid robot may not be successful because of the different dynamic characteristics between them, which may cause the robot to(More)
Since October 1995 a Department of Psychooncology exists at the Herford Community Hospital. It was founded by a private foundation with the aim of supporting patients who suffer from cancer. The psychooncological section is an independent unit. This state of independence proved to be very useful and functional. The Herford Model is based on four(More)
Following successful implementation of psychooncological support in a community hospital the focus has now been shifted to build up support for outpatients. This concentrates on cancer patients and their relatives during and following ambulatory cancer therapy. It is important to integrate these new structures into the preexisting support structures(More)
