Traditional rigid robots, such as those used in manufacturing, have been effective at precise, accurate, rapid motions in well-structured environments for many decades now. However, they operate largely behind cages due to the danger of injury when moving in close proximity to people. A significant and recent shift in robotics involves trading rigid links(More)
This paper reports a study of the effect of the dehydrating agent poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) on didodecyl phosphate (DDP) bilayers and on the fusion activity of DDP vesicles as a function of the molecular weight of PEG. PEG 8K in a concentration of 10 wt % does not induce fusion. However, Ca2+-induced fusion is promoted as reflected by a lowering of the(More)
