Automatic sensing of the environment is a fundamental scientific issue in robotics, since it is essential for autonomous mobile robot systems. In previous works, we presented a 6D SLAM algorithm which is based on the spatial data from the AIS 3D laser scanner and a variant of the iterative closest points algorithm (ICP). In this paper we focused on the(More)
PURPOSE Gabapentin is a recently available anticonvulsant whose mechanism of action remains unknown. We suspected efficacy from serendipitous observations of gabapentin in patients with parkinsonism. This led us to a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial. PATIENTS AND METHODS We administered gabapentin in a placebo-controlled, double-blind,(More)
Our serendipitous observations suggested that some patients with spasticity appeared to have improved following the administration of the anticonvulsant drug gabapentin. As some patients with spasticity are either refractory to or intolerant of established medical treatments, we conducted this study to investigate the effect of gabapentin on spasticity in(More)
In order to define the technical modalities of the so-called transgluteal approach to the hip, the authors studied the structure and topography of the anatomic features encountered in this approach. The gluteus medius, gluteus minimus and vastus lateralis muscles are anatomically continuous by way of their tendinous fibers. The gluteus minimus muscle winds(More)
Recently developed 3D time-of-flight cameras have an enormous potential for mobile robotic applications in particular for 3D mapping and 3D navigation tasks. But similar to passive visual sensors, this type of camera is very fragile to changing lighting conditions and environment dynamics, which make it not applicable for mobile robots. The video shows the(More)
In modern SoC designs, more and more application specific instruction-set processors (ASIPs) are used. They enable a trade off between the flexibility due to the software implementation of algorithms and hardware efficiency arising from the ASIP architecture which is optimized with respect to the application. In this paper, it is shown that the total power(More)
This paper focuses on the implementation of different ALU architectures for ASIPs with greater emphasis on the reduction of power dissipation. The examinations are based on a workframe for the design of fully configurable ASIP with proper selection of power efficient ALU architectures for the implementation of digital filters. Architectures with high ALU(More)
The cell membrane separates the inside of a cell from the outside world. Embedded in the lipid bilayer, the membrane proteins are the doors of the cells. With typical dimensions of 5-10 nm membrane proteins are nanomachines that fulfill key functions such as energy conversion, solute transport, secretion and signal transduction. Their central role in a wide(More)
