Morphology for Planar Hexagonal Modular Self-Reconfigurable Robotic Systems
This thesis primarily covers the design and implementation of a planar hexagonal Modular Self-Reconfigurable Robotic System (MSRRS) along with the construction of its reconfiguration path planner and control algorithm. ...
The Use of Transferrin and Ultrasound in Cancer Treatment
Site-specific drug delivery represents an attractive approach in cancer treatment to reduce the undesirable side-effects of anticancer therapeutics and increase the accumulation of drugs at tumor sites. Surface modification ...
Improving INS/GPS Integration for Mobile Robotics Applications
As unmanned systems become more and more important, reliability and integrity issues become definite, specially when being implemented with low-cost (or sometimes are referred to as commercial-of-the shelf or COTS) sensors ...
Real-Time Implementation of GPS Aided Low Cost Strapdown Inertial Navigation System
As autonomous navigation becomes considerable and important because of the increased demand to their usage and benefits, therefore reliability and integrity issues become definite, specially when being implemented with ...
Ultrasound triggered release of Trastuzumab-conjugated immunoliposomes targeting breast cancer
Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in this era. Since conventional treatment has many side effects, its use is limited, which augments the need for new smart drug delivery systems, such as nanocarriers, capable of ...
Numerical Study of Localization Failure in Structural Steel Under Impact Loading
High quality steels are used as a skeleton supporting many infrastructure constructions like, for example, skyscrapers, arenas, stadiums, bridges and others. The likelihood that these structures could be severely damaged ...
A Navigation and Control System for a Robot in Indoor/Outdoor Environments
This thesis presents an approach to solving the global navigation problem of wheeled mobile robots in indoor and outdoor environments. The presented solutions are based on probabilistic approaches. In outdoor environment, ...
