i Once upon a time, in July 1991, the monks of Corsendonk Priory were faced with a school held in their priory, namely the 2 nd European Summer School on Machine Learning. After listening more than one week to a wide variety of learning algorithms, they felt rather confused: Which algorithm would be optimal? And which one to avoid? As a consequence of this(More)
The work presented in this paper is part of the RIMRES1 project. We describe the design and development of an electromechanical interface for combining heterogeneous modules. The interface has a male and a female face and allows docking in 90-degree steps. The developed concept guarantees a secure connecting and disconnecting in rough environments with fine(More)
In this paper, the development of a docking device for a self-reconfigurable multi-module system with high heterogeneity is presented. The docking device, more precisely the electromechanical interface, is used to connect mobile and immobile units with each other in order to provide a reliable mechanical connection as well as to allow energy and data(More)
This paper presents the mechanical development and testing of a docking device for a highly heterogeneous self-reconfigurable multi-module/multi-robot system. The overall system is meant to emulate a robotic lunar exploration mission. The docking device, more precisely the electro-mechanical interface (EMI), is an advancement of the reliable(More)
A new procedure for calculating eld points with the boundary element method (BEM) is outlined. In the conventional BEM (CBEM) eld points are computed as post{processing by recurrently solving the boundary integral equation with known boundary data for every eld point of interest. This procedure is very time-consuming. On the other hand, newly developed(More)
