We have developed a robotic system that interacts with the user, and through repeated interactions, adapts to the user so that the system becomes semi-autonomous and acts proactively. In this work we show how to design a system to meet a user's preferences, show how robot pro-activity can be learned and provide an integrated system using verbal(More)
This study investigated findings that the off-gassing of certain carpets caused sensory and pulmonary irritation, changes in neurobehavioral signs, and death in exposed mice. Two standard test method measures--one for estimating sensory irritancy (ASTM-E981-84), the other for evaluating the neurotoxic potential of chemicals (functional observational(More)
Simulation of the commonly constructed geometries of aorto-coronary bypass anastomoses was carried out using especially fabricated distensible tubes and a pulsatile pump. The system pressure was maintained between 80 and 120 mmHg. The total mean flow was set at 250 ml min-1 (Reynolds number of 200) and the pulsatile frequency was varied from 0 to 2 Hz. A(More)
Microwave detected, microwave-optical double resonance was used to record the A ˜ state electronic spectrum of NH 3 , NH 2 D, and NHD 2 with both vibrational and rotational resolution. To investigate ND 3 with the same resolution as we had with our hydrogen containing isotopomers, a strip-line cell was constructed allowing the simultaneous passage of(More)
among women with one or more previous negative smears. Women who are already in the screening system are probably more likely to have an invasive cancer diagnosed at an earlier stage than those who are not. A further conclusion which may be drawn from this paper is that some 80% of patients developing invasive cancer did not have a previous negative(More)
A study was conducted to evaluate the emission of perchloroethylene (tetrachloroethylene) from freshly dry cleaned fabrics using small environmental test chambers. The temperature dependence of the release of perchloroethylene was evaluated over a temperature range of 20 to 45 degrees C. A linear relation exists between the logarithm of perchloroethylene(More)
