Skid-steered vehicles are often used as outdoor mobile robots due to their robust mechanical structure and high maneuverability. Sliding, along with rolling, is inherent to general curvilinear motion, which makes both kinematic and dynamic modeling difficult. For the purpose of motion planning, this paper develops and experimentally verifies dynamic models(More)

A 14-year-old female patient with insulin resistance is reported in whom it appeared that initially insulin breakdown was unusually rapid. Subsequently there was in addition evidence of reduced insulin sensitivity. The rapidly increasing requirement of insulin (1600 units daily), given by continuous IV infusion, was dramatically reduced by haemodialysis,(More)
This article describes and evaluates the treatment effectiveness of a behaviorally oriented intermediate day-care clinic for adults with psychiatric disturbances. The goals of the program included reducing the number of psychiatric hospital admissions and readmissions, providing a community-based controlled environment to assist patients in the modification(More)
