GOLLAGI SG AND RAJPUROHIT VS
International Journal of Machine Intelligence , 2011,
Abstract: To monitor & control the remotely situated Electro-Mechanical system or system parameters’ we propose novelwireless framework using cell phones‘s SMS facilities. Our system enables the farmer to get the intimation about status bothon demand as well as automatically in critical situations viz. water level in the tank or well, voltage and current level, waterlevel reached in the field while pouring water to the crop, pressure, Temperatures etc. in the form of feedback SMS andcontrol the operations of the system accordingly. We also made an attempt to keep the log of the status of variousparameters in a PC for future reference. The system has been tested on-field for monitoring and controlling Pump-Setactions and pouring the water to crops based on soil condition. We found that results are very satisfactory and encouraginggiven the simplicity and cost effectiveness of the framework.

A Framework for Planning and Controlling Non-Periodic Bipedal Locomotion  [PDF]
Ye Zhao,Benito R. Fernandez,Luis Sentis
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: This study presents a theoretical framework for planning and controlling agile bipedal locomotion based on robustly tracking a set of non-periodic apex states. Based on the prismatic inverted pendulum model, we formulate a hybrid phase-space planning and control framework which includes the following key components: (1) a step transition solver that enables dynamically tracking non-periodic apex or keyframe states over various types of terrains, (2) a robust hybrid automaton to effectively formulate planning and control algorithms, (3) a phase-space metric to measure distance to the planned locomotion manifolds, and (4) a hybrid control method based on the previous distance metric to produce robust dynamic locomotion under external disturbances. Compared to other locomotion frameworks, we have a larger focus on non-periodic gait generation and robustness metrics to deal with disturbances. Such focus enables the proposed control framework to robustly track non-periodic apex states over various challenging terrains and under external disturbances as illustrated through several simulations. Additionally, it allows a bipedal robot to perform non-periodic bouncing maneuvers over disjointed terrains.

Abstract: the emergence and spread of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (mdr-tb), i.e. involving resistance to at least isoniazid and rifampicin, could threaten the control of tb globally. controversy has emerged about the best way of confronting mdr-tb in settings with very limited resources. in 1999, the world health organization (who) created a working group on dots-plus, an initiative exploring the programmatic feasibility and cost-effectiveness of treating mdr-tb in low-income and middle-income countries, in order to consider the management of mdr-tb under programme conditions. the challenges of implementation have proved more daunting than those of access to second-line drugs, the prices of which are dropping. using data from the who/international union against tuberculosis and lung disease surveillance project, we have grouped countries according to the proportion of tb patients completing treatment successfully and the level of mdr-tb among previously untreated patients. the resulting matrix provides a reasonable framework for deciding whether to use second-line drugs in a national programme. countries in which the treatment success rate, i.e. the proportion of new patients who complete the scheduled treatment, irrespective of whether bacteriological cure is documented, is below 70% should give the highest priority to introducing or improving dots, the five-point tb control strategy recommended by who and the international union against tuberculosis and lung disease. a poorly functioning programme can create mdr-tb much faster than it can be treated, even if unlimited resources are available. there is no single prescription for controlling mdr-tb but the various tools available should be applied wisely. firstly, good dots and infection control; then appropriate use of second-line drug treatment. the interval between the two depends on the local context and resources. as funds are allocated to treat mdr-tb, human and financial resources should be increased to expand dot
Controlling multidrug-resistant tuberculosis and access to expensive drugs: a rational framework  [cached]

Bulletin of the World Health Organization , 2002,
Abstract: The emergence and spread of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), i.e. involving resistance to at least isoniazid and rifampicin, could threaten the control of TB globally. Controversy has emerged about the best way of confronting MDR-TB in settings with very limited resources. In 1999, the World Health Organization (WHO) created a working group on DOTS-Plus, an initiative exploring the programmatic feasibility and cost-effectiveness of treating MDR-TB in low-income and middle-income countries, in order to consider the management of MDR-TB under programme conditions. The challenges of implementation have proved more daunting than those of access to second-line drugs, the prices of which are dropping. Using data from the WHO/International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease surveillance project, we have grouped countries according to the proportion of TB patients completing treatment successfully and the level of MDR-TB among previously untreated patients. The resulting matrix provides a reasonable framework for deciding whether to use second-line drugs in a national programme. Countries in which the treatment success rate, i.e. the proportion of new patients who complete the scheduled treatment, irrespective of whether bacteriological cure is documented, is below 70% should give the highest priority to introducing or improving DOTS, the five-point TB control strategy recommended by WHO and the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease. A poorly functioning programme can create MDR-TB much faster than it can be treated, even if unlimited resources are available. There is no single prescription for controlling MDR-TB but the various tools available should be applied wisely. Firstly, good DOTS and infection control; then appropriate use of second-line drug treatment. The interval between the two depends on the local context and resources. As funds are allocated to treat MDR-TB, human and financial resources should be increased to expand DOTS worldwide.

Yi-You Hou
Abstract and Applied Analysis , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/650863
Abstract: This paper investigates the guaranteed cost control of chaos problem in permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) via Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy method approach. Based on Lyapunov stability theory and linear matrix inequality (LMI) technique, a state feedback controller is proposed to stabilize the PMSM systems. An illustrative example is provided to verify the validity of the results developed in this paper.
Controlling chaos in permanent magnet synchronous motor based on finite-time stability theory

Wei Du-Qu,Zhang Bo,

中国物理 B , 2009,
Abstract: This paper reports that the performance of permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) degrades due to chaos when its systemic parameters fall into a certain area. To control the undesirable chaos in PMSM, a nonlinear controller, which is simple and easy to be constructed, is presented to achieve finite-time chaos control based on the finite-time stability theory. Computer simulation results show that the proposed controller is very effective. The obtained results may help to maintain the industrial servo driven system's security operation.
Global climate change: a framework for nursing action
GAVIN J. ANDREWS
Aporia : The Nursing Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Recent research papers and commentaries have articulated the considerable effects that global climate change has had, and will have, on human health. Arguing that nursing must become more centrally involved in mitigation and response efforts, this paper develops a framework for professional consideration and action. Four core components of the framework are common tactics, maximizing specialties, prioritizing places and public scholarship.
Controlling wheelchairs by body motions: A learning framework for the adaptive remapping of space  [PDF]

Computer Science , 2011,
Abstract: Learning to operate a vehicle is generally accomplished by forming a new cognitive map between the body motions and extrapersonal space. Here, we consider the challenge of remapping movement-to-space representations in survivors of spinal cord injury, for the control of powered wheelchairs. Our goal is to facilitate this remapping by developing interfaces between residual body motions and navigational commands that exploit the degrees of freedom that disabled individuals are most capable to coordinate. We present a new framework for allowing spinal cord injured persons to control powered wheelchairs through signals derived from their residual mobility. The main novelty of this approach lies in substituting the more common joystick controllers of powered wheelchairs with a sensor shirt. This allows the whole upper body of the user to operate as an adaptive joystick. Considerations about learning and risks have lead us to develop a safe testing environment in 3D Virtual Reality. A Personal Augmented Reality Immersive System (PARIS) allows us to analyse learning skills and provide users with an adequate training to control a simulated wheelchair through the signals generated by body motions in a safe environment. We provide a description of the basic theory, of the development phases and of the operation of the complete system. We also present preliminary results illustrating the processing of the data and supporting of the feasibility of this approach.

American Journal of Climate Change (AJCC) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ajcc.2016.52013
Abstract: The semi-permanent systems such as Seasonal Heat Low (HL), Monsoon Trough (MT), Tibetan Anticyclone (TA), Tropical Easterly Jet (TEJ) and Low Level Jet (LLJ) or Somali jet are observed over Indian region during Indian summer monsoon season (June through September). These systems play a vital role in defining the strength of the Indian summer monsoon rainfall as a whole. Here we evaluate the ability of Consortium for Small-Scale Modeling (COSMO) regional Climate Model (COSMO-CLM), a high resolution regional climate model within the Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment for South Asia (CORDEX-SA) framework, to simulate these systems of Indian summer monsoon. The historical runs of the COSMO-CLM for the period 1951-2000 are analysed. Overall the COSMO-CLM is able to simulate these components reasonably well. Possible changes in the position and the strength of these systems and their role in changing rainfall pattern over India are examined to assess the impact of global warming, under the RCP 4.5 simulations towards the end of the century (2051-2100). The analysis shows that the semi permanent systems may not strengthen in the future as compared to the present climate. The summer monsoon rainfall does not show uniform changes over the region. It is likely to enhance over the southern parts of the country, south of 20?S while it is projected to decrease in the northern parts under the global warming scenario.
