  • Dechev, Nikolai; Cleghorn, William L.; Mills, James K. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2005-06)
    This paper presents guidelines for designing the grasping interface between passive, surface micromachined microgrippers and micro-parts used for a microassembly system. The microassembly system is based on a robotic ...
  • Dechev, Nikolai; Cleghorn, William L.; Mills, James K. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004-04)
    This paper describes a novel microassembly system that can be used to construct out-of-plane three-dimensional (3-D) microstructures. The system makes use of a surface-micromachined microgripper that is solder bonded to a ...
  • Dechev, Nikolai; Ren, Lu; Liu, William; Cleghorn, William L.; Mills, James K. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2006-05)
    This paper describes the design and development of a 6 degree of freedom robotic manipulator used in the assembly of three-dimensional MEMS (micro electromechanical systems) microstructures. The robot employs a highly ...
  • Choi, Seyeong; Yang, Hong-Chuan; Alouini, Mohamed-Slim; Qaraqe, Khalid A. (2008-08-08)
    This report investigates the effect of feedback error on the performance of the joint adaptive modulation and diversity combining (AMDC) scheme which was previously studied with an assumption of error-free feedback ...
  • Tzanetakis, George; Perry, Cook (IEEE, 2002-07)
    Musical genres are categorical labels created by humans to characterize pieces of music. A musical genre is characterized by the common characteristics shared by its members. These characteristics typically are related ...
  • Sprague, David; Tory, Melanie (2009-06-02)
    Current real-world casual information visualization systems use motion to presumably increase system appeal and repeated use. Despite empirical evidence suggesting that motion is distracting and not particularly good for ...
  • Chapman, N; Barrodale, I; Zala, C (IEEE, 1984)
    A method is described for measuring the sound speed and the sound-speed gradient of surficial sea floor sediment from bottom-reflected signals recorded in marine seismic experiments. The technique makes use of the ocean-bottom ...
  • Milinazzo, F; Zala, C; Barrodale, I (IEEE, 1987)
    When analyzing linear systems of equations, the most important indicator of potential instability is the condition number of the matrix. For a convolution matrix W formed from a series w (whereW_{ij} = w_{i-j+1}, 1 leq i-j ...
  • Zala, C A; Barrodale, I; Lucas, C E; MacKinnon, R F (IEEE, 1989)
    A formulation of the maximum entropy (ME) method is described, where the data constraints are expressed in the form of fixed bounds on the elements of an orthogonal transform of the model. The bounds are set on the basis ...
  • Hopcroft, John; Joseph, Deborah; Whitesides, Sue (IEEE, 1982)
    The classical mover's problem is the following: can a rigid object in 3-dimensional space be moved from one given position to another while avoiding obstacles? It is known that a more general version of this problem involving ...
  • Zala, C; Barrodale, I; Kennedy, J (IEEE, 1987)
    In this paper a new method for obtaining a quantitative estimate of an acoustic field consisting of a set of discrete sources and background noise is described. The method is based on theL1 (least absolute values) norm ...
  • Tremblay, ME; Branzan Albu, A; Hebert, L; Laurendeau, D (IEEE, 2004)
    This paper proposes a new 2D segmentation method for MR shoulder images. Due to the significant length of the image sequences, we aim at minimizing the user intervention in the segmentation process. Our method integrates ...
  • Matthews, C; Coady, Y (IEEE, 2009-05-23)
    Virtualization provides a coarse-grained isolation mechanism that results in large systems, with full operating systems and a complete software stack as their foundation. Though much of this foundation is not strictly ...
  • Murdoch, J; St. Pierre, A; Coady, Y; Carruthers, S; Gibbs, C; Lonergan, S; Srivastava, G; Stege, U; Yazir, O (IEEE, 2008)
    Although IT industry is flourishing, student enrolment in Computer Science and related Engineering post-secondary degree programs is low. The causes and issues surrounding this trend are diverse, inter-related, and vastly ...
  • Matthews, C; Coady, Y; Neville, S (IEEE, 2009)
    One of the novel benefits of virtualization is its ability to emulate many hosts with a single physical machine. This approach is often used to support at-scale testing for large-scale distributed systems. To better ...
  • Gibbs, C; Baldwin, J; Singh, N; D'Hondt, M; Coady, Y (IEEE, 2008)
    Multi-core programming presents developers with a dramatic paradigm shift. Whereas sequential programming largely allowed the decoupling of source from underlying architecture, it is now impossible to develop new patterns ...
  • Yazir, YO; Gunion, K; Pearson, C; Gibbs, C; Estey, A; Lonergan, S; Coady, Y (IEEE, 2008)
    Introducing technology as a sustainable means of creating, connecting, and collaborating reveals the need to carefully consider subtle aspects of deployment strategies and support in remote regions. In order to comprehensively ...
  • Gibbs, C; Coady, Y (IEEE, 2005)
    With the constant demand for system change and upgrades comes the need to simplify and ensure accuracy in this process. As structural boundaries decay, non-local modifications compound the costs of system evolution and ...
  • Coady, Y; Kiczales, G; Feeley, M; Hutchinson, N; Ong, JS; Gudmundson, S (IEEE, 2001)
    Operating system structure is important; it leads to understandable, maintainable, 'pluggable' code. But despite our best efforts, some system elements have been difficult to structure. We propose a new analysis of this ...
  • Wang, JYQ; Ong, JS; Coady, Y; Feeley, MJ (IEEE, 2000)
    The benefits of Markov-based predictive prefetching have been largely overshadowed by the overhead required to produce high-quality predictions. While both theoretical and simulation results for prediction algorithms ...
