Depth control methods of variable buoyancy AUV

2017 IEEE Underwater Technology (UT), 2017

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are widespread and effective tool for oceanographic research. The main applications of AUVs are long-term missions for survey of wide area and patrolling. However the key issue for long term cruising range is energy storage. One of approaches to reduce energy consumption is using of the variable buoyancy system (VBS) on the AUV. This approach allows ...

  • Depth control methods of variable buoyancy AUV

    Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are widespread and effective tool for oceanographic research. The main applications of AUVs are long-term missions for survey of wide area and patrolling. However the key issue for long term cruising range is energy storage. One of approaches to reduce energy consumption is using of the variable buoyancy system (VBS) on the AUV. This approach allows to compensate AUV's buoyancy and to reduce energy on hovering due to it. Two combined depth control methods based on cooperative work of propulsion system and variable buoyancy system has been presented in this paper. Estimation of the methods based on calculation of energy consumption and transient response time has been made. Comparison of ones with methods based on standalone work of propulsion system and VBS has been made. Provided methods was proved on simulation and water pool tests on variable buoyancy AUV “CH-2” designed at Institute of Marine Technology Problems FEB RAS year ago.

  • A comparison between artificial neural networks and urologists' assessment of outcome in bladder cancer. I. Progression and recurrence in Ta/T1 tumours

    The early accurate determination of the course of disease in Ta/T1 bladder cancers is an important issue in patient management and improvement of clinical outcome. For this purpose a comprehensive database of patients with newly diagnosed bladder cancer was retrospectively analysed by artificial neural networks (ANNs) as follows. First, stage progression in 105 patients with Ta/T1 tumours was analysed using 7 different factors including clinicopathological and molecular markers of mixed prognostic significance. Eight additional factors were then employed to analyse tumour recurrence within 6 months in 56 patients. The prediction accuracies of the ANNs were subsequently compared to those of 4 expert urologists and proved to be significantly higher in predicting stage progression. An important result of the analysis concerned the T1G3 group of tumours which is non-infiltrative at diagnosis, but has the greatest propensity to progress to muscle-invasive disease. In this group, again, the performance of the ANN exceeded that of the urologists.

  • Comparison of contractile and extensile pneumatic artificial muscles

    Pneumatic Artificial Muscles (PAMs) are used in robotic and prosthetic applications due to the high power to weight ratio, controllable compliance, and simple design. Contractile PAMs are typically used in traditional hard robotics in place of heavy electric motors. As the field of soft robotics grows, extensile PAMs are beginning to have increased usage. This work experimentally tests, models, and compares contractile and extensile PAMs to demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of each type of PAM and applications for which they are best suited.

  • Generation of ultrasound contrast bubbles in in vivo canine urinary bladder for possible diagnosis of urinary reflux

    A less invasive method for diagnosis of urinary reflux is being pursued using high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). Microbubbles produced in the urinary bladder, by transcutaneous application of HIFU, can be visualized with a diagnostic ultrasound system and the bubble movement can be tracked from the bladder, through the ureters, and to the kidney, if reflux occurs. Since urine is under-saturated in total gas and filtered by the kidney. It is necessary to increase the gas and/or particle content in the urine in order to produce contrast microbubbles at a minimal level of HIFU. In 5 canine experiments, sodium bicarbonate (0.0128 M/kg) was infused IV at 3 ml/min for 2 hours with Lasix(R). On average for 3 of 5 canines, the infusions resulted in a 63% increase in urine pCO/sub 2/ from the baseline (from saline infusion), with mean increase to 87 mmHg. This pCO/sub 2/ change decreased the threshold rarefactional pressure for imageable microbubble generation on average to 7.6 MPa (10 s exposure at 1.18 MHz, 25 cycles, 0.5% duty cycle) from 9 MPa (p-value=0.004). The elevated pCO/sub 2/, after bicarbonate infusion increased generated echogenicity 16-21 dB higher than for pristine urine or saline infusion for the same peak rarefactional pressure applied (p-value=0.002). And the longevity of the contrast was up to 12.1 seconds. Although these urine property modifications were done with IV administration, eventually urine manipulation should be possible with equivalent bicarbonate and Lasix(R) doses given orally. Therefore, manipulation of the urine gas content by intake of bicarbonate should be a safe and effective method to assist HIFU in generating copious imageable and residual microbubbles that can potentially be used for less invasive diagnosing urinary reflux.

  • Automatic registration of 3-D ultrasound images

    One of the most promising applications of 3-D ultrasound lies in the visualisation and volume estimation of internal 3-D structures. Unfortunately, artifacts and speckle make automatic analysis of the data difficult. In this paper we investigate the use of 3-D spatial compounding to improve data quality, and find that accurate registration is the key. A correlation-based registration technique is applied to 3-D ultrasound data acquired from in-vivo examinations of a human gall bladder. We find that the registration technique performs well, and visualisation and segmentation of the compounded data are clearly improved.

  • 3D sculpting and auto-stereoscopic display of ICRU-50 volumes and anatomy in conformal radiotherapy treatment planning

    A 3D environment for conformal radiotherapy treatment planning is described. It incorporates sculpting tools for creating ICRU-50 target volumes and organs, space variant modelling, and auto-stereoscopic display (ASD) for interrogation of nested volumes embedded in a radiation dose field. ASD simplifies clinical appreciation of the critical 3D effects of treatments. It is particularly cost-effective given the launch of mass-market PCs equipped with ASD capability.

  • Large-deformation image registration using fluid landmarks

    For each patient receiving definitive treatment for cervix cancer, several CT/MR imaging studies need to be registered in order to specify the total physical or biological dose to each fixed tissue voxel in an organ system. This turns out to be a difficult problem due to large localized deformations and displacements of bladder, rectum, vagina, uterus and paracervical tissues due to tumor regression, bladder and rectal filling variations, and especially insertion of the applicator itself. This paper explores the utility of using the fluid landmark image registration method to register images before and after insertion of the brachytherapy applicator in order to track radiation dose from one treatment to the next.
