    Teleoperation permits humans to manoeuvre robots from a distance. Thus, a human's ability to intelligently manipulate and inspect can be performed in an otherwise inaccessible environment. As a result, teleoperation is gaining acceptance as a cost-effective way to work in remote, often hazardous, environments. However, two significant challenges in designing such systems remain: 1. The communicati... View full abstract»

    Despite predictions that computer-switching speeds are fast approaching fundamental limits, consumers continue to see a steady increase. Improved performance has pushed the clock speed of top end personal computers well over the 400 MHz mark. Perhaps more impressive, this improvement in operating speed has been achieved through incremental improvements on existing technology. Current personal comp... View full abstract»

    Radio frequency (RF) and microwaves have been used in many new applications in medicine, in the field of cardiology, microwaves are used to treat arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms) and blocked coronary arteries. Urologists use similar systems to treat obstruction of urine flow due to an enlarged prostate. RF is being used by ear-nose-and-throat specialists to treat airflow obstructions responsib...

    With the world rapidly changing into a global village, the necessity of interconnecting computers is exponentially increasing. The greatest hand in conjoining computers is the Internet. With rapid advancement development (RAD) tools, Internet programming has become a piece of cake for the developers. Now a novice programmer can develop applications encompassing common web protocols just by draggin... View full abstract»
