In the US SE Coastal Plain, adoption of site-specific farming has lagged behind that in the upper Midwest. While reasons for this may be both social and economic, it appears that the importance of the problem represented by yield variation on production fields needs to be quantified before adoption would be considered by many farm operators. Our objective(More)
In this paper, we are solving two inverse design problems. We first determine the desired Cartesian stiffness matrix for each contact in a multi-contact grasp by solving an optimization problem. Secondly given the desired stiffness matrix, K, for each contact, we design a material to behave accordingly. The orientation for the material links, and the(More)
A manufacturing cell is a complex collection of machines and electronics which must be intelligently supervised. It should be flexible enough to readily adapt to different part styles and robust enough to operate without human assistance for reasonable periods of time. A programming language with a correct choice of language properties can make meeting(More)
