—Remote systems will be essential for reducing risk to human workers from hazardous radiation and difficult work environments, while improving productivity and reducing costs. The major drawback of currently available remote manioulator system is that teleoperation is slow and imprecise. The presented work focuses on enhancing remote operation of tools for(More)
Recently, the development of Machine to Machine (M2M) communication has been largely accomplished in a variety of fields including smart home. In M2M communication, the role of sensor node is only limited to gather data and send them to upper application layers. In this research, the limited role of the sensor node in traditional M2M communication is(More)
– This paper describes the enhanced teleoperation in order to improve productivity while reducing risk to human workers from hazardous environment in Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) tasks. Due to the difficulty of perceiving the three-dimensional environment with two-dimensional video display, one of the most difficult tasks is to place the tool(More)
Future space explorations necessitate manipulation of space structures in support of extra vehicular activities or extraterrestrial resource exploitation. In these tasks robots are expected to assist or replace human crew to alleviate human risk and enhance task performance. However due to the vastly unstructured and unpredictable environmental conditions,(More)
Glioblastoma (GBM) is a highly aggressive brain tumor for which novel therapeutic approaches, such as immunotherapy, are urgently needed. Zoledronate (ZOL), an inhibitor of osteoclastic activity, is known to stimulate peripheral blood-derived γδT cells and sensitize tumors to γδT cell-mediated killing. To investigate the feasibility of γδT cell-based(More)
Nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates (N-BPs), which prevent bone resorption, exert direct and γδT cell (GDT)-mediated antitumor effects against several tumor cell types, including glioblastoma (GBM). However, limited information is available regarding the antitumor effects of N-BPs in GBM. Specifically, the antitumor effects of minodronate (MDA), a(More)
– For deactivation and decommissioning (D&D) of contaminated structures in the weapons complex, remotely operated robotic systems are expected to replace human workers from hazardous radiation and difficult work environments, while improving productivity and reducing costs. Nevertheless, the major drawback of currently available remote operation technology(More)
This paper presents enhanced remote manipulation of tools for D&D tasks by extending teleoperation with tele-autonomy and tele-collaboration. This work builds on a reactive, agent-based control architecture, which is well suited to unstructured and unpredictable environments, and cobot control technology, which implements a virtual fixture that can be used(More)
