  • McKay, Ian (ASME International, 2012-11)
    By combining the aeroelastic and vortex-forced flutter modes of a thin plastic strip, its oscillation frequency can be confined to scale monotonically with fluid velocity. This principle has been used to produce a low-cost, ...
  • Wang, Chenbo; Haeffner, Fredrik; Hoveyda, Amir H.; Schrock, Richard Royce (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-01)
    Olefin metathesis catalysts for controlling the formation of trisubstituted macrocyclic Z alkenes have been developed. The most effective complexes are Mo alkylidenes with a pentafluorophenylimido group and two large ...
  • Tappan, Jacqueline; Mikkelsen, Christine; Driediger, Ken; Cummings, M. L. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011-08)
    This research, a collaboration between MIT and ABB/Ventyx, is focused on the development of a mobile interface for field workers in power repair settings and field service delivery. A Human Systems Engineering (HSE) approach ...
  • Wu, Eugene; Balakrishnan, Hari; Cheung, Alvin K.; Sivalingam, Lenin Ravindranth; Madden, Samuel R. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-07)
    Smart-phone applications ("apps") run across a wide range of environmental conditions, locations, and hardware platforms. They are often subject to an array of interactions that are hard or impossible for developers to ...
  • Reben, Alexander James; Paradiso, Joseph A. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011)
    Documentaries are typically captured in a very structured way, using teams to film and interview people. We developed an autonomous method for capturing structured cinéma vérité style documentaries through an interactive ...
  • Johansson, M.; Rivera, C.; de Foy, B.; Lei, Wenfang; Song, J.; Zhang, Y.; Galle, B.; Molina, Luisa Tan (European Geosciences Union / Copernicus, 2009-08)
    We here present the results from mobile measurements using two ground-based zenith viewing Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) instruments. The measurement was performed in a cross-section of the plume from ...
  • Quercia, Daniele; Di Lorenzo, Giusy; Calabrese, Francesco; Ratti, Carlo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-04)
    Television and newspapers sit at the top of many agency marketing plans, while outdoor advertising stays at the bottom. The reason for this is that it’s difficult to account for who views a billboard, so there is no way ...
  • Xia, Ling; del Alamo, Jesus A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    As in Si CMOS, the incorporation of mechanical strain offers the possibility of improving the performance of III-V field effect transistors (FETs). Quantifying its potential and providing fundamental understanding of the ...
  • Karumanchi, Sisir; Iagnemma, Karl; Scheding, Steve; Karumanchi, Sisir, B (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-05)
    This paper addresses the problem of ensuring mobile robot motion safety when reacting to soft and hard hazards in a static environment. The work is aimed at off-road navigation for mobile ground robots where soft hazards ...
  • Chun, Byung-Gon; Curino, Carlo; Sears, Russell; Shraer, Alexander; Madden, Samuel R.; Ramakrishnan, Raghu (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012-06)
    Mobile application development is challenging for several reasons: intermittent and limited network connectivity, tight power constraints, server-side scalability concerns, and a number of fault-tolerance issues. Developers ...
  • Hackl, Martin; Nissenbaum, Jon (Springer-Verlag, 2011-10)
    This squib presents two puzzles related to an ambiguity found in for-infinitival relative clauses (FIRs). FIRs invariably receive a modal interpretation even in the absence of any overt modal verb. The modal interpretation ...
  • Murphy, E.; Ghisalberti, M.; Nepf, Heidi (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05)
    Vegetation is ubiquitous in rivers, estuaries, and wetlands, strongly influencing water conveyance and mass transport. The plant canopy affects mean and turbulent flow structure, and thus both advection and dispersion. ...
  • Zhang, Yong; Liu, Tao; Meyer, Clifford A; Eeckhoute, Jerome; Johnson, David S; Nussbaum, Chad; Myers, Richard M; Brown, Myles; Li, Wei; Liu, Xiaole S; Bernstein, Bradley E. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2008-09)
    We present Model-based Analysis of ChIP-Seq data, MACS, which analyzes data generated by short read sequencers such as Solexa's Genome Analyzer. MACS empirically models the shift size of ChIP-Seq tags, and uses it to improve ...
  • Heldt, Thomas; Verghese, George C. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-08)
    As a result of improved hospital information-technology infrastructure and declining costs of storage media, vast amounts of physiological waveform and trend data can now be continuously collected and archived from bedside ...
  • Mikaelian, Tsoline; Rhodes, Donna H.; Nightingale, Deborah J.; Hastings, Daniel E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-04)
    Uncertainties can be managed through real options that provide a decision maker the right, but not the obligation, to exercise actions at a later time. In previous work we introduced an integrated real options framework ...
  • Milicevic, Aleksandar; Jackson, Daniel; Gligoric, Milos; Marinov, Darko (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-10)
    Applications are increasingly distributed and event-driven. Advances in web frameworks have made it easier to program standalone servers and their clients, but these applications remain hard to write. A model-based programming ...
  • Cummings, M. L.; Stimpson, Alexander J.; Buinhas, Luisa S.; Bezek, Scott; Boussemart, Yves (Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, 2012-09)
    Procedures play an important role in domains where humans interact with critical, complex systems. In such environments, the operator’s ability to correctly follow a given set of procedures can directly impact system safety. ...
  • McGee, Sasha; Mirkovic, Jelena; Mardirossian, Vartan; Elackattu, Alphi; Yu, Chung-Chieh; Kabani, Sadru; Gallagher, George; Pistey, Robert; Galindo, Luis H.; Badizadegan, Kamran; Wang, Zimmern; Dasari, Ramachandra Rao; Feld, Michael S.; Grillone, Gregory (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2008-12)
    In order to evaluate the impact of anatomy on the spectral properties of oral tissue, we used reflectance and fluorescence spectroscopy to characterize nine different anatomic sites. All spectra were collected in vivo ...
  • Zavala, M.; Molina, Mario J.; Lei, Wenfang; Molina, Luisa Tan (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-01)
    The emission characteristics of mobile sources in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area (MCMA) have changed significantly over the past few decades in response to emission control policies, advancements in vehicle technologies ...
  • Geramifard, Alborz; Redding, Joshua D.; Joseph, Joshua Mason (2012-06)
    Risk and reward are fundamental concepts in the cooperative control of unmanned systems. In this research, we focus on developing a constructive relationship between cooperative planning and learning algorithms to mitigate ...
