  2. BIOMECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF RECIPROCATING MOTION FOR DIS- ABLED INDIVIDUALS WHILE CYCLING

    SBC: Motion Transfer Cycling            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH BICYCLES HAVE LONG BEEN USED IN THE REHABILITATION OF NEUROMUSCULAR AND MUCULOSKELETAL CONDITIONS FOR BOTH LOW-ER AND UPPER EXTREMITIES, LITTLE RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE TO INVESTIGATE THE EFFECTS OF THE TRADITIONAL CIRCULAR CRANKINGMOTION ON PATIENT REHABILITATION. RETURNING A PATIENCT TO OPTIMUM FUNCTION REQUIRES A VARIETY OF MEASURES TO INCREASE STRENGTH, RANGE OF MOTION, ENDURANCE (BOTH ...

  3. VIDEODISC AND COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY IN BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT TRAINING

    SBC: VIDEODISCOVERY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT TESTS THE MERIT AND FEASIBILITY OF USING INTER- ACTIVE VIDEODISCS TO TRAIN TEACHERS, AND SUPPORT PERSONNEL FOR BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT IN THE CLASSROOM AND TO DIRECTLY TRAIN STUDENTS AND PARENTS FOR BEHAVIORAL CONTROL. CONTROL-LING STUDENT BEHAVIOR IS OF THE HIGHEST PRIORITY IN MOST SCHOOLS. THE SEATTLE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS ENDORSED THIS PROJECT AND IS SUPPORTING BOTH PRODUCTION AND TESTING ...

  4. VLSI DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN IMAGE SEGMENTATION ALGORITHMS

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IMAGE SEGMENTATION IS A CRUCIAL STEP IN IMAGE ANALYSIS AND IS REQUIRED BEFORE ANY HIGH-LEVEL SYMBOLIC MANIPULATION CAN BE DONE USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES. THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO CARRY OUT VERY LARGESCALE INTEGRATION (VLSI) DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF IMAGE SEGMENTATION ALGORITHMS USEFUL FOR ANALYZING INDUSTRIAL, BIOMEDICAL AND MILITARY IMAGES. DURING PHASE I ONE ...

  5. HIGH DENSITY TACTILE SENSOR ARRAYS FOR CURVED SURFACES ON FINGER SEGMENTS AND TIPS

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH DENSITY TACTILE SENSOR ARRAYS BASED UPON ULTRASONIC PULSE-ECHO RANGING WILL BE DEVELOPED TO COVER CURVED SURFACES OF A DEXTEROUS ROBOTIC HAND. AN ARRAY OF TRANSDUCERS GENERATE ULTRASONIC PULSES WHICH TRAVERSE AN OVERLYING ELASTOMER SHEET AND ARE REFLECTED AT ITS UPPER SURFACE AND RETURN TO THE TRANSDUCERS. A MEASUREMENT OF THE TIME-OF-FLIGHT CORRESPONDS TO THE THICKNESS OF THE SHEET. WHEN THE ...

  6. A NONCONTACT WATER STAGE MEASURING INSTRUMENT

    SBC: DESIGN, ANALYSIS AND RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE MEASUREMENT OF STAGE IN STREAMS AND MONITORING WELLS IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE IN ESTIMATING STREAM DISCHARGE AND LEVELOF GROUND WATER. STAGE IS THE HEIGHT, IN FEET, OF THE SURFACE OF THE WATER ABOVE AN ARBITRARY DATUM. DESIGN ANALYSIS ASSOCIATES, INC., PROPOSES TO EXPERIMENT WITH NONCONTRACT SENSING TO MEASURE DISTANCE TO THE SURFACE OF WATER. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DESIGN A SOLID-STATE INSTRUMENT ...

  7. ELECTROIMPACT ROBOT END EFFECTOR

    SBC: Electroimpact, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE LOW PAYLOAD CAPACITY OF INDUSTRIAL ROBOTS, TYPICALLY UNDER 50 KG, HAS LIMITED THEIR USEFULNESS. A POTENTIAL SOLUTION TO THIS LIMITATION IS THE ELECTROIMPACT TOOL. POWERED BY CAPACITOR DISCHARGE A SMALL ELECTROIMPACT TOOL HAS RELIABLY GENERATED FORCE PULSES OF 80 KNT. THE ELECTROIMPACT TOOL IS A REFINEMENT OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC RIVETER, A HAND HELD DEVICE DEVELOPED IN THE EARLY 1970'S CAPABLE ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF FLOW/STERIC FIELD-FLOW FRACTIONATION AS A ROUTINE PROCESS CONTROL METHOD

    SBC: Fffractionation, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    FLOW/STERIC FIELD-FLOW FRACTIONATION (FLOW/STFFF) IS A RECENTLY DEVELOPED HIGH SPEED METHOD WITH EXTRAORDINARY ABILITIES TO SEPARATE PARTICULATE MATERIALS WITH DIAMETERS ROUGHLY IN THE 1-100 UM RANGE. THE OBJECT OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO EXAMINE THE POTENTIAL OF CONVERTING THIS RESEARCH FINDING INTO A FAST AND RELIABLE PRACTICAL TOOL FOR INDUSTRIAL PROCESS CONTROL. THIS METHOD WILL BE STUDIED FOR ITS ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF MACHINING WITH ABRASIVE-WATERJETS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    FLOW INDUSTRIES, INC. HAS DEVELOPED A POWERFUL NEW CUTTING TOOL USING HIGHLY PRESSURIZED WATERJETS IN COMBINATIONS WITH ABRASIVE MATERIAL. THE ABRASIVE-WATERJET CUTS ALL METALS AND NON-METALS WITH NO HEAT, VIBRATION OR SHEAR STRESS EFFECTS, LEAVING AN EXCEPTIONAL SURFACE FINISH. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING ABRASIVE-WATERJET TECHNOLOGY AS A MACHINI ...

  10. OPTICAL TACTILE ARRAY FOR ROBOTIC AND AUTOMATION APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED FIBER OPTIC TACTILE SENSOR USES VARIABLE BIREFRINGENCE TO PROVIDE A MUCH NEEDED ROBOTIC END EFFECTOR WITH SENSING CAPABILITIES INCLUDING PRESSURE, FORCE, TOUCH AND PROXIMITY. A TWO-DIMENSIONAL ARRAY OF THESE MINIATURE PRESSURE SENSORS PROVIDES A PLANAR TACTILE SENSOR. A MAJOR ADVANTAGE OF THIS SENSOR IS THAT NO ACTIVE ELECTRONICS ARE SITUATED AT THE ARRAY SITE. THUS, IT CAN BE USED IN ...
