Human-Robotic Mimetic Haptic Control Framework
This technology is a method for training a robot to perform the tasks that typically require skilled manual labor with a trowel when installing Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems (EIFS). It measures a human’s motions while using a tool (in this case a trowel), which is then used to teach the robot to perform similarly. Background: Exterior...

Motif-Identification in Signal Processing
This non-invasive electronic device is worn on the body while monitoring vagus nerve activity in order to observe and obtain data about breathing patterns. The software filters and conditions the raw data by using a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). The software proceeds to apply an error-reducing algorithm which finds the best fit for the conditioned data...

Sensor Data Quality Upgrade Framework
The Sensor Data Quality Upgrade Framework (SQUF) combines an artificial neural network and an optimization method to evaluate differences in data between low-quality and high-quality sensors. Once trained for a specific low-quality sensor, the SQUF can convert data from that sensor into higher quality data. Background: The sensor industry is faced...
