Seven commercial rotavirus antigen assays were compared with in-house PCR methods for detecting rotavirus in stool specimens. The assay sensitivities were 80% to 100%, while the specificities were 54.3% for one commercial immunochromatographic (ICT) method and 99.4% to 100% for other assays. Thus, except for one commercial ICT, all the assays were generally(More)
The motive behind building humanoids is to design a robot that can duplicate the complexities of human motion, decision making, be able to help people and even accomplish tasks that cannot be carried out by humans. Building humanoids has always attracted scientists throughout the world but although the aim is seemingly simple, the task is never easy. This(More)
Software development for the Cerberus humanoid robot as well as the initial tests conducted on the prototype humanoid are addressed in this work. The software package developed for this project includes a capability to describe the robot’s gait on the screen graphically by the click of a mouse, which is then transparently converted into the P-Basic code to(More)
The repetitive nature and poor efficiency of the conventional manual wheelchair contribute to muscle fatigue and overuse in long term wheelchair users. An innovative wheel system, the Rowheel, was developed to address the concern of repetitive stress injuries related to wheelchair use. The Rowheel incorporates a planetary gear system that allows the user to(More)
This paper presents component selection and manufacturing details of the humanoid robot Cerberus. In its current phase, the Cerberus robot has eight degrees-of-freedom actuated by eight servos. Each leg has three servos, one servo at the waist and one to actuate the arms. The waist joint is used to shift the center of gravity to maintain balance as the(More)
