This paper presents a novel mobile robot for urban search and rescue based on reconfiguration. The system consists of three identical modules; actually each module is an entire robotic system that can perform distributed activities. To achieve highly adaptive locomotion capabilities, the robot’s serial and parallel mechanisms form an active joint, enabling(More)
Quantum dots (QDs) containing surface carboxylic groups have been successfully modified using biotinylated glycopolymer and carbohydrate/biotin reagents via EDC coupling. The biotinylated glycopolymer was synthesized in controlled dimension via the reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization of the three monomers containing(More)
Carbon nanotubes are an emerging class of nanomaterials that are receiving enormous attention in the field of biomedicines due to their biocompatibility, degradability, cell penetrating abilities, and, more specifically, their remarkable ability to localize in the nucleus of the cell without the need of nuclear localizing signals. They are used as drug and(More)
Reconfigurable robots consist of many modules which are able to change the way they are connected. As a result, the robots have the capability of adopting different configurations to match various tasks and suit complex environments. This paper presents a novel field robot named JL-I which consists of three uniform modules. With the docking mechanisms, the(More)
There is a need to synthesize new gene delivery vehicles that can deal with the problems of endosomal escape and nuclear entry. We propose cationic glycopolymer-stabilized gold nanoparticles as an effective gene delivery system. The cationic glyconanoparticles synthesized were revealed to be biocompatible and are resistant to aggregation in physiological(More)
Multi-segment robotpsilas adaptation to rough terrain is much better than traditional single robot, because of the force cooperation between segments. One kind of multi-segment robot can undock to modules, which have the ability of locomotion and perform some simple tasks. JL-1 robot is one of this kind of robots. The most notable characteristics of this(More)
The growing attention toward the synthesis and uses of gold nanoparticles for biomedical applications is based on their biocompatibility, ease of functionalization, and unique optical and electronic properties. Recently, the gold nanoparticles are also found to induce the size-dependent interactions with living tissues. It has been found that gold(More)
In this paper, a novel vibrating method based on the principle of vibrating suction method is presented, which is called pulse vibrating method. To discuss this method in depth and evaluate its performance, simplified mathematical model based on some assumptions for both the previous sin vibrating method and the pulse vibrating method are built, and a new(More)
Reconfigurable robots consist of many modules which are able to change the way they are connected. As a result, these robots have the capability of adopting different configurations to match various tasks and suit complex environments. For mobile robots, the reconfiguration is a very powerful ability in some tasks which are difficult for a fixed-shape robot(More)
Recent developments in the fields of sensing, communication, and computing have driven the research efforts in context-aware devices, which can use context information to realize more intuitive interaction between human and machine. This paper developed a new conceptual design of intelligent motor controller that is able to access environment sensors and(More)
