— This paper describes a visual tool for teleoperative experimentation involving remote manipulation and contact tasks. Using modest hardware, it recovers in real-time the pose of moving polyhedral objects, and presents a synthetic view of the scene to the teleoperator using any chosen viewpoint and viewing direction. The method of line tracking introduced(More)
| This paper addresses the problem of dexterous manipulation of objects using an articulated hand. We describe some geometric reasoning techniques that can be applied to solve active compliance tasks. In this context, ne motion strategies are derived from the positions and forces between the grasped object and the ngers of the hand. Our approach is based in(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) -producing Escherichia coli in stool samples from 457 patients with travellers' diarrhoea who had travelled to tropical and subtropical countries. Ninety-seven ESBL-producing E. coli strains were isolated from 17.9% of the patients (82/457). CTX-M-15 was the most(More)
Increasing concern regarding the use of animals in research has triggered a growing need for non-animal research models in a range of fields. The development of 3Rs (replacement, refinement, and reduction) approaches in research, to reduce the reliance on the use of animal tissue and whole-animal experiments, has recently included the use of Dictyostelium.(More)
