      As robotics has begun to spread from the accessible arenas of laboratories and industry into more dangerous and remote environments such as space or hazardous waste remediation tanks, the need for autonomous and intelligent ...
    • Dynamic Fault Reconfigurable Intelligent Control Architectures for Robotics 

      Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Walker, Ian D. (1993-04-01)
      In this paper we describe new progress in our development of an Intelligent Control Framework for robots which dynamically reconfigures itself to cope with faults in either sensors or joint hardware. The Framework is ...
    • A Dynamic Fault Tolerance Framework for Remote Robots 

      Visinsky, Monica L.; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Walker, Ian D. (1995-08-01)
      Fault tolerance is increasingly important for robots, especially those in remote or hazardous environments. Robots need the ability to effectively detect and tolerate internal failures in order to continue performing their ...
    • Dynamic Franz-Keldysh effect and its applications 

      Srivastava, Ajit (2003)
      In this dissertation we study the dynamic Franz-Keldysh effect (DFKE) in GaAs. We observe the salient features of DFKE viz., below bandgap absorption and oscillations above the band gap, in our experiments. We also report ...
    • Dynamic Memory Interconnections for Rapid Access 

      Iyer, Bala; Sinclair, J. Bartlett (1980-11-01)
      Certain aspects of bulk storage technology development have required the study of dynamic memory interconnections. Various schemes to interconnect physical storage locations have been proposed in the literature. Taking ...
    • DYNAMIC REASSIGNMENT IN DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING SYSTEMS 

      SINCLAIR, JAMES BARTLETT (1979)
    • Dynamic Senor-Based Fault Detection for Robots 

      Visinsky, Monica L.; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Walker, Ian D. (1993-09-01)
      Fault detection and fault tolerance are increasingly important for robots in space or hazardous environments due to the dangerous and often inaccessible nature of these environs. We have previously developed algorithms to ...
    • Dynamically reconfigurable data caches in low-power computing 

      Brogioli, Michael C. (2003)
      In order to curb microprocessor power consumption, we propose an L1 data cache which can be reconfigured dynamically at runtime according to the cache requirements of a given application. A two phase approach is used ...
    • Edge Characteristics in Wavelet-Based Image Coding 

      Wakin, Michael (2001-04-20)
      Accurate prediction of wavelet coefficients relies on an understanding of the phase effects of edge alignment. This research examines techniques for uncovering edge information based on the available coefficients. These ...
    • Edge Localized Image Sharpening via Reassignment with Application to Computed Tomography 

      Dorney, Timothy D.; Bhashyam, Srikrishna; Doran, Andrew; Choi, Hyeokho; Flandrin, Patrick; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-07-01)
      Traditional filtering methods operate on the entire signal or image. In some applications, however, errors are concentrated in specific regions or features. A prime example is images generated using computed tomography. ...
    • Edge-based inference, control, and DoS resilience for the Internet 

      Kuzmanovic, Aleksandar (2004)
      Realizing new services on the Internet ultimately requires edge-based solutions for both deployability and scalability. Each such solution has two fundamental aspects. The first is the ability to accurately infer critical ...
