How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Soft robotic systems are well suited for developing devices for biomedical applications. A bio-mimicking robotic soft esophagus (RoSE) is developed as an in vitro testing device of endoprosthetic stents for dysphagia management. Endoprosthetic stent placement is an immediate and cost-effective therapy for dysphagia caused by malignant esophageal st...
Recent technological advancements in the field of endoscopic stenting have established placement of self-expandable stents as a capable standard endoprosthesis for both malignant and benign esophageal strictures. These stents designate a novel, alternative, immediate, and cost-effective therapy for managing adequate oral nutrition during dysphagia....
The main objective of using reusable launch vehicle is to minimize the operational cost of launching satellites into outer-space. This is achieved by flying back the launch vehicle back to launch station or to any designated landing site, thus the vehicle can be recovered and reused. This paper discusses about optimizing the steering angle (θ2) at...
A magnetic bearing is a bearing which supports the load using magnetic levitation, which could provide a contact-less, low frictional losses, lubrication free, high speed operations compared to the conventional bearings. The contact forces are generated by actively controlling the dynamics of an electromagnet. An Active Magnetic Bearing (AMB) syste...
An AMB is a mechatronic device, which could ensure contact-less, low frictional losses, lubrication free, high speed applicationscompared to conventional bearings. These bearing systems work on the principle of magnetic levitation. Hence the transmission losses in the electrical drives systems and the use of lubricants, which are mostly pollutants,...
This study aims to investigate the radial (physical) strength and its effect on the migration (behavior) of different stents by deploying the stent in an esophageal swallowing robot.
A significant part of the Roads budget is spent on maintenance as opposed to expansion into areas that are desperately in need of infrastructure. Especially in areas that receive high rainfall, the roads are prone to damage. The cost for maintaining existing roads increase when damage is not detected early on while they are still minor cracks. It is assumed that minor damage accumulates because there is a lack of personnel to survey the state of roads and the lack of a platform for citizens to report the state of roads. The goal of this project is to automate the reporting of this damage and lay the foundations for a platform that allows citizens to report road damage.
