Hypothermia was defined as a temperature < 35 degrees C. RESULTS There were 7045 admissions to the SICU, of which 661 (9.4%) had a recorded temperature of <(More)
In this paper, a novel Multi-Layer Consensus Seeking (MLCS) framework is proposed, focusing on the vehicular platooning problem. The vehicles are described by linear heterogeneous dynamics. For example, we consider third-order systems, however the algorithms discussed are suitable for any higher-order. A velocity-dependent inter-vehicle spacing policy is(More)
