Distributed planning over time and people: balancing sampling effort and information accuracy

F. J. Seagull; Yan Xiao; C. Plasters Systems, Man and Cybernetics, 2003. IEEE International Conference on, 2003

Coordination of dynamic schedules in complex environments requires the sampling of current status of the system. In many such systems, the information is unavailable or unreliable. Optimal sampling theory focuses on monitoring current situation for changes, with limited consideration of future changes or missing information. Models of sampling for coordination and scheduling must consider resolving missing or ambiguous data points. ...


Designing of a model of electrical controlled above knee prothesis

Mücahit Ege; Serdar Küçük 2015 Medical Technologies National Conference (TIPTEKNO), 2015

In this study, a mechanical model of electrically controlled above knee prosthesis was designed. Since the parameters such as ergonomic structure, height, weight, energy consumption, velocity, torque and electromechanical control are very important for prosthesis, the new prosthesis was designed considering these parameters. In literature, studies are mostly performed in flat surfaces because of straight forwardly designing and manufacturing above ...

S. A. E. Harter IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, 1979

MEDICOM, an emergency medical services (EMS) communications system conceived in 1968 and which became a reality in 1973, is described. This system was implemented before the development of FCC Docket 19880 and uses EMS radio communications channels not specified in that docket. Insights are provided on problems that face government agencies such as FCC, DOT, DHEW, and NTIA in relation ...


Toward Risk-Sharing Communication in Wards: The Woof-and-Warp Model of Medical Workplace and Analysis of Nurses' Conversations

M. Nambu; E. T. Harada 2007 IEEE/ICME International Conference on Complex Medical Engineering, 2007

We propose an analytical model for describing nursing activities, based on cognitive analyses of studies at nursing workplaces. The woof-and-warp model indicates that nursing activities are woven with warp threads of a variety of nursing tasks processed by a number of medical staffers, and with woof threads of individual nurses involved in performing multiple tasks at one time. Both threads ...

  • Information Technology and Organizations

    Today's rapid growth in information technology has occurred without a full understanding of the human consequences of its use -- on individuals, on organizations, and on society as a whole. As a result, initial expectations have frequently not been met, and a backlash has developed. Clearly a more realistic approach to information technology is needed, and applied psychology can offer great help in this effort.This book takes a problem-centered approach to questions of usability, applicability, and acceptability, giving an overview of current research on information technology at work, at home, in education, and in medicine, and where possible, making recommendations for the future. Chapters cover psychology and information technology; management, workers, and the new technologies; factory automation; ergonomics and the new technologies; office systems; expert systems in the health field; health care; the disabled; computers in education; attitudes toward the new technologies; information technology and home-based services; and information technology in the home.Distributed for The British Psychological Society.

  • Surface EMG in Ergonomics and Occupational Medicine

    Prevention of musculoskeletal disorders is one of the main goals in ergonomics. The development of methods to quantify muscle force, fatigue, and muscle involvement in a work task is important for this purpose surface electromyography (sEMG) and kinematic measurements are the main tools for the quantitative evaluation of risks related to work activity. The literature regarding the potential of sEMG techniques in ergonomic studies is extensive and concerns many applications, some of which are listed: work at display terminals and office workstations, production line workstations, work with surgical workstations and workspace optimization. Surface EMG has a remarkable potential role in the prevention, monitoring, documentation, and possibly treatment of work related disorders. Insufficient research funding and standardization efforts are still limiting its applications. Much greater research efforts are required to transform its potential into a practical technique with clinical and legal relevance and economic impact on work health.

  • Appendix D: The Parts of a Bicycle

    The bicycle ranks as one of the most enduring, most widely used vehicles in the world, with more than a billion produced during almost two hundred years of cycling history. This book offers an authoritative and comprehensive account of the bicycle's technical and historical evolution, from the earliest velocipedes (invented to fill the need for horseless transport during a shortage of oats) to modern racing bikes, mountain bikes, and recumbents. It traces the bicycle's development in terms of materials, ergonomics, and vehicle physics, as carried out by inventors, entrepreneurs, and manufacturers. Written by two leading bicycle historians and generously illustrated with historic drawings, designs, and photographs, _Bicycle Design_ describes the key stages in the evolution of the bicycle, beginning with the counterintuitive idea of balancing on two wheels in line, through the development of tension-spoked wheels, indirect drives (employing levers, pulleys, chains, and c ainwheels), and pneumatic tires. The authors examine the further development of the bicycle for such specific purposes as racing, portability, and all-terrain use; and they describe the evolution of bicycle components including seats, transmission, brakes, lights (at first candle- based), and carriers (racks, panniers, saddlebags, child seats, and sidecars). They consider not only commercially successful designs but also commercial failures that pointed the way to future technological developments. And they debunk some myths about bicycles -- for example, the mistaken but often-cited idea that Leonardo sketched a chain-drive bike in his notebooks. Despite the bicycle's long history and mass appeal, its technological history has been neglected. This volume, with its engaging and wide-ranging coverage, fills that gap. It will be the starting point for all future histories of the bicycle.
