A Dynamic Hierarchical Web-Based Portal, Matthew James Spaulding Jan 2011

A Dynamic Hierarchical Web-Based Portal, Matthew James Spaulding

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

A dynamic hierarchical web-based portal was created to house a suite of web-based supply chain management applications. The portal was designed in a hierarchical manner to match the structure of large companies. Administrators of the the portal have the ability to form the portal in such a way to mimic the existing structure of their company. Access rights to the applications in the portal may be granted or denied per division and the users of the portal are placed in these divisions based on their duty in the company. In addition, users are granted roles which dictate their ability to ...


Robotic Hand Evaluation Based On Task Specific Kinematic Requirements, Carlos Rafael Neninger Jan 2011

Robotic Hand Evaluation Based On Task Specific Kinematic Requirements, Carlos Rafael Neninger

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

With the rise autonomous and robotic systems in field applications, the need for dexterous, highly adaptable end effectors has become a major research topic. Control mechanisms of robotics hands with a high number independent actuators is recognized as a complex, high dimensional problem, with exponentially complex algorithms. However, recent studies have shown that human hand motion possesses very high joint correlation which translates into a set of predefined postures, or synergies. The hand produces a motion using a complementing contribution of multiple joints, called synergies. The similarities place variables onto a common dimensional space, effectively reducing the number of independent ...
