Dicynodontia represent the most diverse tetrapod group during the Late Permian. They survived the Permo-Triassic extinction and are central to understanding Permo-Triassic terrestrial ecosystems. Although extensively studied, several aspects of dicynodont paleobiology such as, neuroanatomy, inner ear morphology and internal cranial anatomy remain obscure.(More)
Force/Torque sensing is very important for several automatic and industrial robotic applications. Basically, if precise control of the forces that arise from contact between tools and parts is required to successfully complete the automatic task, then a force/torque sensor is needed along with some force/torque control technique. In this paper we focus on(More)
Programming‐by‐demonstration (PbD) is the possibility to program a robot just by showing what it is supposed to do and how it should do it. This paper reports a collection of developments that enable users to program industrial robots using speech, several device interfaces, force control and code generation techniques. The reported system is explained in(More)
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present a CAD-based human-robot interface that allows non-expert users to teach a robot in a manner similar to that used by humans to teach each other. Another important issue addressed here has to do with how robots deal with uncertainty. Design/methodology/approach – Intuitive robot programming is achieved by(More)
The non-avian saurischians that have associated eggshells and embryos are represented only by the sauropodomorph Massospondylus and Coelurosauria (derived theropods), thus missing the basal theropod representatives. We report a dinosaur clutch containing several crushed eggs and embryonic material ascribed to the megalosaurid theropod Torvosaurus. It(More)
The quadrate of reptiles and most other tetrapods plays an important morphofunctional role by allowing the articulation of the mandible with the cranium. In Theropoda, the morphology of the quadrate is particularly complex and varies importantly among different clades of non-avian theropods, therefore conferring a strong taxonomic potential. Inconsistencies(More)
Folie a trois is a syndrome characterized by the transfer of delusional ideas from one person to two other persons. This condition rarely ends in the murder of any involved and we are unaware of where the primary case had the diagnosis of acute psychosis in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We present a case report of folie a trois resulting in murder,(More)
Synapsida, the clade including therapsids and thus also mammals, is one of the two major branches of amniotes. Organismal design, with modularity as a concept, offers insights into the evolution of therapsids, a group that experienced profound anatomical transformations throughout the past 270 Ma, eventually leading to the evolution of the mammalian(More)
