Kinematic analysis and trajectory control of the Rice omni-directional mobile robot (Rice University, Texas)
The forward/inverse kinematics, trajectory planning and control system for a mobile omni-directional robot are analyzed and implemented. For kinematic analysis each wheel of the robot has been modeled as a "higher pair" ...
Image data compression using wavelet decomposition
Wavelet-based multi-resolution representation has become a cutting-edge technology in the area of image data compression. Though the discrete wavelet transform is closely related to the perfect-reconstruction octave-band ...
Ventricular interaction in a closed-loop model of the canine circulation
A mathematical model of the dynamic interaction between the ventricles over a complete cardiac cycle is presented. The ventricles are modeled as a three-walled system, each of which is individually characterized by a ...
The use of scanning laser range finders for autonomous robotic navigation
An intelligent robotic system must possess the capabilities to sense the environment, perceive the environment, reason on the environment and then act based upon the conclusions of the reasoning process. Autonomous robotic ...
Validation of the Rice Parallel Processing Testbed using sorting algorithms (Rice University, Texas)
The Rice Parallel Processing Testbed (RPPT) is software package for simulating the execution of parallel computers. The RPPT employs execution driven simulation to perform simulation efficiently. In this thesis, the ...
Performance evaluation and optimization of stochastic systems via importance sampling
Analytic solutions to determining the optimal set of system parameters and the associated performance of random input systems are typically intractable. One often only has access to the system's output under a variety of ...
