The objective of this book is to present systematic methods for achieving stable , agile and efficient locomotion in bipedal robots. The fundamental principles presented here can be used to improve the control of existing robots and provide guidelines for improving the mechanical design of future robots. The book also contributes to the emerging control… (More)
We develop an efficient snapshot algorithm that needs no control messages and does not require channels to be first-in-first-out. We also show that several stable properties (e.g., termination, deadlock) can be detected with uncoordinated distributed snapshots. For such properties, our algorithm can be further simplified.
Trigger finger is a common hand disease, causing swelling, painful popping and clicking in moving the affected finger joint. To better evaluate patients with trigger finger, segmentation of flexor tendons from magnetic resonance (MR) images of finger joints, which can offer detailed structural information of tendons to clinicians, is essential.
