We present the design of the Snackbot, a robot that will deliver snacks in our university buildings. The robot is intended to provide a useful, continuing service and to serve as a research platform for long-term Human-Robot Interaction. Our design process, which occurred over 24 months, is documented as a contribution for others in HRI who may be(More)
Many enveloped viruses exploit the class E vacuolar protein-sorting (VPS) pathway to bud from cells, and use peptide motifs to recruit specific class E VPS factors. Homologous to E6AP COOH terminus (HECT) ubiquitin ligases have been implicated as cofactors for PPXY motif-dependent budding, but precisely which members of this family are responsible, and how(More)
Recent advances in wireless communication and microelectronics have enabled the development of low-cost sensor devices leading to interest in large-scale sensor networks for military applications. Sensor networks consist of large numbers of networked sensors that can be dynamically deployed and used for tactical situational awareness. One critical challenge(More)

Executive Summary Degenerative retinal diseases (RP) and age-related mac-ular degeneration (AMD) affect the normal function of photoreceptor cells in the retina, causing patients with severe afflictions to develop extensive vision loss. Our team worked with Professor Shawn Kelly, Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University to develop a retinal prosthesis for(More)
The purpose of this research is to explore the interactions between patients and life-saving medical devices, to understand how the design of these machines can be improved to promote wellness and provide a better quality of life. Life-saving medical devices such as dialysis machines, heart pumps, and artificial lungs are amazing pieces of technology that(More)
