|This paper presents a geometric based approach for multiple mobile robot motion coordination 1. All the robot paths being computed independently, we address the problem of coordinating the motion of the robots along their path in such a way they do not collide each other. The proposed algorithm is based on a bounding box representation of the obstacles in(More)
Ibuprofen is the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug most prescribed for the treatment of fever and moderate pain in childhood. Its analgesic and antipyretic efficacy is now well documented: at equal doses ibuprofen appears slightly more effective than acetaminophen in the treatment of fever and is equivalent for analgesia. However, adverse effects should(More)
This paper presents a geometric based approach for multiple mobile robot motion coordination. All the robot paths being computed independently, we address the problem of coordinating the motion of the robots along their own path in such a way they do not collide each other. The proposed algorithm is based on a bounding box representation of the obstacles in(More)
Several schemes have been proposed in the path planning-literature to plan collision-free and feasible trajectories for non-holonomic mobile robots. A classical scheme is the two-step approach proposed in 4, 8, 5] which consists in rst computing a collision-free holonomic path, and then in transforming this path by a sequence of feasible ones. The quality(More)
An estimate of the antibiotic cost of nosocomial infections (NI) was made in a university hospital group based on data collected in adult inpatients enrolled in the French national prevalence survey in 1996. Among the 6839 study patients, 636 (9.3%) presented with at least one NI, of these, data on antimicrobial treatment were available for 480. The overall(More)
This paper presents a geometric algorithm dealing with collision checking in the framework of multiple mobile robot coordination. We consider that several mobile robots have planned their own collision-free path by taking into account the obstacles, but ignoring the presence of other robots. We rst compute the domain swept by each robot when moving along(More)
