Machine Learning Based Approach Using Electromyography to Predict Joint Angles of the Knee 

Coker, Jordan (2020-07-13)
In order for an active exoskeleton and its user to achieve synchronous motion, the intended motion of the user needs to be detected with enough lead-time to process and move the exoskeleton accordingly. This must also ...

A Machine Vision and Sensing System for Braid Defect Detection, Diagnosis and Prevention During Manufacture 

Branscomb, David (2007-12-15)
The mechanical properties of braids are often quite convenient for achieving the high performance levels expected of composite materials. A favorable attribute of a braided structure is the ability for the design engineer ...

MACN: Map-Aided Cooperative Inertial Navigation 

Cofield, Robert (2020-05-18)
This thesis presents an inertial navigation system (INS) that leverages the global positioning system (GPS) and a sparse road network database to cooperatively localize ground vehicles within close proximity to one another. ...

Macro-propagation of native cane (Arundinaria spp.) in central Kentucky and restoration out-plantings in western Tennessee and southern Alabama. 

Conley, Rachel (2015-07-23)
Canebrakes, monodominant stands of native bamboo (Arundinaria spp.; hereafter cane), are a critically endangered ecosystem in the Southeastern United States. Canebrakes have declined to <2% of their former range from ...

Macrophage CXCR7: A Potential New Target for Atherosclerosis 

Ma, Wanshu (2013-07-15)
Objective—The discovery of CXCR7 as a new receptor for SDF-1 places many previously described SDF-1 functions attributed to CXCR4 in question, though whether CXCR7 acts as a signaling or “decoy” receptor has been in debate. ...

Magma evolution and processes of the Ashi Volcano, NW Tibet, China: Sr isotope studies of plagioclase crystals 

Speetjens, Sara (2018-04-27)
The Ashi Volcano is a member of the Ashikule Volcanic Field (AVF) and is located on the northwestern margin of the Tibetan Plateau. The Ashi Volcano draws much attention from volcanologists due to its recent eruptions in ...

Sannidhi, Abhinav (2020-12-01)  ETD File Embargoed
Magnetic characterization and quantification of individual magnetic particles and magnetically labeled cells of the sample is of much importance to assess the sample quality and better application in the fields of drug ...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Radiation-Induced Thymic Atrophy as a Model for Pathologic Changes in Acute Feline Immunodeficiency Virus Infection 

Kuhnt, Leah (2008-08-15)
The thymus is a primary lymphoid organ responsible for the production of a diverse repertoire of immunocompetent and self-tolerant T lymphocytes (T cells), vital for proper immune function. T lymphocyte differentiation, ...

Magnetism and Spin Dynamics in Emergent Two-Dimensional van der Waals Magnets 

Alahmed, Laith (2021-11-12)  ETD File Embargoed
The low Curie temperature of most two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals (vdWs) magnets makes it challenging to incorporate them into device applications. This thesis explores two intriguing materials: Fe5GeTe2, a 2D vdWs room ...

Magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium and stability in rotating tokamak plasmas 

Lopez Ortiz, Omar Eulogio (2019-04-29)
Tokamak plasmas display finite macroscopic rotation in standard machine operation. Yet, the theoretical understanding of stationary states is lacking as compared to static configurations. In this work, we investigate the ...
