  1. 1. Human-Robot Interaction and Mapping with a Service Robot : Human Augmented Mapping

    Författare :Elin Anna Topp; Henrik I. Christensen; Benjamin J. Kuipers; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Robotics; Human-Robot Interaction; Cognitive modelling; Representation of space; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : An issue widely discussed in robotics research is the ageing society with its consequences for care-giving institutions and opportunities for developments in the area of service robots and robot companions. The general idea of using robotic systems in a personal or private context to support an independent way of living not only for the elderly but also for the physically impaired is pursued in different ways, ranging from socially oriented robotic pets to mobile assistants.

  2. 2. Indoor emissions and fate of flame retardants : A modelling approach

    Författare :Ioannis Liagkouridis; Ian Cousins; Anna Palm Cousins; Thomas McKone; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; flame retardants; BFRs; OPFRs; indoor environment; emissions; fate; modelling; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : A significant number of consumer goods and building materials act as emission sources of flame retardants (FRs) in the indoor environment. As a result, FRs have become ubiquitous indoors raising concerns about human exposure and possible health implications. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Probabilistic Modelling of Hearing : Speech Recognition and Optimal Audiometry

    Författare :Svante Stadler; Arne Leijon; Stefan Stenfelt; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :auditory models; probabilistic modelling; speech modelling; human speech recognition; hearing aids; cochlear implants; psychoacoustics; diagnostic methods; optimal experiments; audiometry;

    Sammanfattning : Hearing loss afflicts as many as 10\% of our population.Fortunately, technologies designed to alleviate the effects ofhearing loss are improving rapidly, including cochlear implantsand the increasing computing power of digital hearing aids. Thisthesis focuses on theoretically sound methods for improvinghearing aid technology. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Modelling Evolution : From non-life, to life, to a variety of life

    Författare :Yu Liu; David J. T. Sumpter; Peter Dittrich; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical biology; Biocomplexity; Artificial chemistry; Ecosystem evolution; Origin of life; Self-replication; Prebiotic evolution; Collectively-catalytic; Golden ratio; Tillämpad matematik och statistik; Applied Mathematics and Statistics;

    Sammanfattning : Life is able to replicate itself, e.g., a microorganism is able to divide into two identical ones, and a single plant is able to forest a whole island. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Functional modelling of the human timing mechanism

    Författare :Guy Madison; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Psychology; Brain mechanisms; Brownian motion; drift; dynamical systems; fractal; human; Gaussian noise; Hurst exponent; time; time series analysis; timing; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : Behaviour occurs in time, and precise timing in the range of seconds and fractions of seconds is for most living organisms necessary for successful interaction with the environment. Our ability to time discrete actions and to predict events on the basis of prior events indicates the existence of an internal timing mechanism. LÄS MER
