We describe Team WPI-CMU’s approach to the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC), focusing on our strategy to avoid failures that required physical human intervention. We implemented safety features in our controller to detect potential catastrophic failures, stop the current behavior, and allow remote intervention by a human supervisor. Our safety methods and(More)
Door traversal is generally a trivial task for human beings but particularly challenging for humanoid robots. This paper describes a holistic approach for a full-sized humanoid robot to traverse through a door in an outdoor unstructured environment as specified by the requirements of the DARPA Robotics Challenge. Door traversal can be broken down into four(More)
Cellular operators are facing stiff competitions from low cost technology providers such as VoIP service providers. Under this circumstance, a viable option for the operators is to integrate the low cost technologies into their network to provide converged services with richer features at a competitive price. In this paper, we infer from a game-theoretic(More)
In both developing and developed countries, reducing the cost of medical care is a primary goal of science and government. In this project we seek to find and extract information from a video of a human that tells us the pulse rate and the oxygen level of the blood, with the eventual aim to create a virtual pulse oximeter. Features to be extracted were(More)
This paper describes the research to reduce high false positive discovery rates when discovering possible molecular diagnostic patterns. This effort combines information from the gene ontology with multiple sets of discriminating patterns discovered in a publicly available gene expression dataset on breast cancer. Using a second validation dataset, we(More)
