Longitudinal magnetic media with soft magnetic under-layers read with magneto-resistive heads
Keepered media refers to traditional magnetic media with the addition of a soft magnetic "keeper" layer adjacent to the recording layer. Numerous recent reports have shown performance improvements associated with keepered ...
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" ...
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 ...
