The amphibious robot is so attractive and challenging for its broad application and its complex working environment. It should walk on rough ground, maneuver underwater and pass through transitional terrain such as sand and mud, simultaneously. To tackle with such a complex task, a novel amphibious robot (AmphiHex-I) with transformable leg-flipper composite(More)
A hybrid energy storage system (HESS) composed of a battery and super-capacitor (SC) can make full use of advantages in energy and power density, which can further improve the performance of hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). Most studies have been limited to configuration and control to reduce the burden and prolong the life cycle of the battery, seldom(More)
This paper investigates the use of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) as a tool for evaluating surgical performance. The IMU device provides measurements of acceleration and rate of rotation readings which are then processed to obtain assessment metrics. The metrics investigated include stroke detection, stroke distance, as well as stroke time duration. The(More)
A new method to reveal the effect on the novel semi-elliptical leg moving on loose soil was developed. The method combined an infinitesimal thought based model and bar drag experiment. In the theory model, the effect on the leg was obtained by integrating the effect on each element under the ground, which was mimicked by the bar drag experiment performed(More)
