To improve the positioning accuracy of CRTS II track slabs applied to the passenger dedicated line, a 6-DOF parallel mechanism is proposed as the positioning mechanism in the track slab fine adjustment system (TSFS), and the corresponding positioning

This paper proposes controlling temperature in an oven by using integral-cycle binary rate modulation (ICBRM) method and AC line with frequency of 50 Hz. Microcontroller MCS-51 controls the binary rate multiplier (BRM) according to the proportional i

An optical OFDM system with constellation fine adjustment scheme is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The complexity of the scheme is analyzed and proved to be acceptable. The single-mode fiber transmission distance of a 56Gb/s O-OFDM system

A dexterous micro manipulation system is developed for the application in assembling micro machine, manipulating cell, and micro surgery. We have proposed a concept of a two-finger micro hand, and designed and built two types of hand modules based on

A stand-alone microfluidic system consists of a reusable flow control part and a disposable microwell array for high throughput cell analysis is proposed. The flow control part is realized with addressable microvalve array driven by compactly-fabrica

Micro-nano scale manipulation system is a fundamental technique to measure/control/assemble micro-nano scale objects precisely and arbitrarily. Biological cells are one of the important targets for various bio-medical applications. We have been worki

In the field of life science which includes, for example tissue engineering and cloning, the manipulation and analysis of cells is important. However, manipulating micro objects by hand without the help of equipment is a difficult task. We developed

A two-fingered micro hand has been available for use for years and allows dexterous manipulation of a single cell: grabbing, positioning, rotating and releasing. The end-effector of this micro hand consists of two glass needles; however, the glass ti

Micro sized sensors are necessary for sensing the force on a robot finger for its skillful works. Because the sensor should be mounted in its narrow space, the top link of a finger itself is used as a structure of the sensor to detect the force by at

The purpose of our research work is to develop a multifunctional piezoelectric actuation mechanism for micro-manipulator using 3 degree of freedom actuation plate and expansion plate which its expansion rate and its character frequency can be adjuste

Cell mapping is a powerful mathematical tool that is employed in the study of dynamical systems. Synchronous generators used in power systems are dynamical systems and have a transient behavior. This paper describes cell mapping in brief and presents

This work uses the well established propagation models of the mobile radio channel to estimate the cell coverage area in situations where the received envelope contains a line-of-sight component. In particular it is assumed that the mean signal power

Based on the Shenzhen's minimum wages adjustment formula, the multiple regression method was used to screen variables for determining the affecting degree of the variables. After the weight coefficients of the variables were calculated, a modified fo

We have developed a hand rehabilitation system for patients suffering from paralysis or contracture. It consists of two components: a hand rehabilitation machine, which moves human finger joints with motors, and a data glove, which provides control o

This paper presents a hand-held explosive detector system based on piezo-resistive cantilever sensors. A novel signal conditioning scheme comprising current excitation method with modified half bridge configuration, is implemented to measure as low a

IN THE ORDINARY application of power circuit breakers, the most desirable method of operation consists of d-c solenoid mechanisms for closing and tripping, supplied by a storage battery. When this is not suitable, the next choice is a dry metallic re

This paper reports on the novel three-dimensional micromanipulation method by simple micro-heater array with thermoresponsive gel. Furthermore, control method for a 4×4 micro-heater array device was reported. These devices can be applied to construct

Single cell analysis has attracted much attention to reveal the detailed and localized biological information, which is not obtained by the conventional group cell analysis due to the statistical assay on individual cells. In addition, new study fiel

In this paper, we present a hand rehabilitation system for patients suffering from paralysis or contracture. It consist of two components: a hand rehabilitation machine, which moves human finger joints using motors, and a data glove, which enables co

We report a microchip system based on a combination of immunomagnetic separation and microfluidics for high-throughput detection of whole cells. In this system target cells bound to magnetic beads flow parallel to a microchip with flow rates of mLs/m

The exoskeleton robot is a comprehensive technology that is combination of sensing, control and information. Based on the upper limb exoskeleton rehabilitation device (ULERD), this paper describes a novel hand exoskeleton mechanism for using in rehab

Substantial progresses have been made in building versatile anthropomorphic prosthetic hands in the past two decades using emerging technologies. However the trade-offs between functionality, reliability, affordability, appearance, etc. have not been

The times of Big Data promotes increasingly higher demands for fine-motion analysis, such as hand activity recognition. However, in real-world scenarios, hand activity recognition suffers huge challenges with variations of illumination, poses and occ
