Omni-directional is used to describe the ability of a system to move instantaneously in any direction from any configuration. Omni-directional robotic platforms have vast advantages over a conventional design in terms of mobility in congested environments. They are capable of easily performing tasks in environments congested with static and dynamic(More)
The control of domestic robots can be carried out in a wireless networked environment. This allows for realistic real time control that can be achieved through the declarative definition of networked components, the standardisation of the domestic home interfaces and the object-orientated approach to model development and data management.

This paper examines the ability of a test subject to correctly interpret an incoming sensory signal through a haptic interface. A vibrotactile armband was used to do this consisting of four vibration motors. The success of interpretation is compared as the number of sensory signals is increased to a maximum of four. These senses simulated in the tests are(More)
A wearable device is proposed for the purpose of practical rehabilitation of temporomandibular disorder (TMD). The three-dimensional movement of the jaw is simplified as moving in the two-dimensional sagittal plane. The normal jaw motion is specified in terms of incisor trajectory and condylar trajectory, the former being used to synthesize the mechanism(More)
