Credit: Tyler OkamotoAfter facing off against 47 competitors from around the world, the Caltech Robotics Team won first prize at the 19th annual International RoboSub Competition for autonomous underwater vehicles in San Diego, held from July 25-31.The team’s robot submarine, nicknamed “Dory,” successfully navigated an obstacle course with tasks that required it to touch buoys, fire torpedoes at targets, and rescue an object underwater—all autonomously.“Not only was Caltech’s entry widely acclaimed as the most beautiful robot in the competition, it performed impressive feats of autonomy in the underwater race course, including a double barrel roll through the ‘style points’ navigation gate,” says faculty advisory Joel Burdick, the Richard L. and Dorothy M. Hayman Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Bioengineering in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science.“It’s great to see the culmination of all of our efforts,” says Tyler Okomoto, a rising senior and the team’s project manager, who was one of 18 representatives from Caltech’s team at the competition.Caltech had the largest student team to show up to participate in the event of any school, despite having the smallest student body, Burdick notes. The team’s students worked around the clock as the competition drew nearer, with the software team making tweaks to the hydrophone system just hours before the race that enabled their victory.“Working with the team during the months and days leading up to the competition reminded me of why I chose a career in academia,” Burdick says. “It was such a thrill to be associated with this great group of students.”“We are very proud of the win and the exemplary work this team has done,” says Guruswami Ravichandran, John E. Goode, Jr., Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering; and Otis Booth Leadership Chair, Division of Engineering and Applied Science. “The team was exceptional and represented Caltech extremely well.”2016 was only the third year in which a Caltech team of undergraduates entered this competition. The first year, its submarine placed 7th out of 39 teams, winning the “best newcomer” award. The following year, the team’s ranking climbed to 4th out of 37.The Caltech team chose to redesign its submarine each year from the ground up—even though teams are allowed to re-enter submarines, tweaking them to build on past successes. This year’s submarine, which features seven thrusters, two grippers, a hydrophone, and other sensors, took nine months and about $75,000 to build.One major upgrade for this year’s design was a wide-view camera that sits inside a clear plastic bubble and has two axes of rotation that allow the submarine to spot targets without changing orientation; last year’s design required the submarine to fire its thrusters and roll and pitch while conducting searches in order to find its targets. The competition’s judges noted this as an innovation that had not been seen before at the event.Another major improvement was the addition of a clear acrylic dome on the top of the robot that allowed for easy access to its electronics, allowing the team to make changes without having to do major disassembly and reassembly.The International RoboSub Competition is hosted annually by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the robotics community. In addition to completing the obstacle course, participating teams must generate a technical paper about their submarine, create a video, build a website to track progress, and give a presentation to a panel of judges.For its first-place finish, Caltech’s team was awarded the top prize of $6,000. A video of the event can be viewed online at team will reconvene in October to begin planning the next year’s robotic submarine.center_img 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Make a comment EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS More Cool Stuff Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Do employees benefit from employee benefits?

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Staff benefits schemes seem to be a hot topic at the moment so I thought I’d chime in with my thoughts….In years gone by the company car, paid phone bill’s or company credit card were pretty much the in domain of the professionals at the top of their game working in the most generous of companies. Now though, almost akin to my blog post on gimmicky long interview processes, companies seem to be using the benefits they offer as a marketing tool, and the list of what is being offered is getting longer and longer. There’ nothing wrong with that, but let’s dissect it a little.In recent times there has been a lot of debate over what is considered a generous benefits programme and what is going too far. For example, I refer to Facebook and Apple who opted for a very polarizing benefit of freezing any female employee’s eggs (most suggest in a bid to allow feeling more at ease delaying having children). Or Google California, as another example who trucked in snow to create a snowy wonderland for its staff. Times are of course changing and our wants and needs are evolving with the times. I totally get that we are not programmed in the same way that we were 50 years ago where social norms almost pre-defined at what ages children would enter our lives, or when we should be allowed to enjoy a brisk walk in the snow, but is this taking a “company benefit” too far?In a few less extreme examples such-as, orgs employing chefs to cook meals each day for staff, full gym in-house or even sleep pods. These all sound amazing, right? And who wouldn’t want a part of that, but something that is also worth thinking about is – Are we then blurring the lines further between our professional worlds and our personal worlds? And indeed, is this a good or bad thing? We have already seen a huge shift towards technology interoperability and never being too far away from a piece of tech that could see us struggle to “switch off” in our personal time, but we are now looking at a new age where the comforts of home-life are being brought to the office.This is not to say I wouldn’t dive straight into a sleep-pod given the chance – just food for thought and I’d be keen to hear other perspective on where boundaries should be in the creation of a solid benefits scheme… Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.center_img Read full article Do employees benefit from employee benefits?Shared from missc on 17 Jun 2015 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more

Orbital and millennial Antarctic climate variability over the past 800,000 years

first_imgA high-resolution deuterium profile is now available along the entire European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica Dome C ice core, extending this climate record back to marine isotope stage 20.2, 800,000 years ago. Experiments performed with an atmospheric general circulation model including water isotopes support its temperature interpretation. We assessed the general correspondence between Dansgaard-Oeschger events and their smoothed Antarctic counterparts for this Dome C record, which reveals the presence of such features with similar amplitudes during previous glacial periods. We suggest that the interplay between obliquity and precession accounts for the variable intensity of interglacial periods in ice core records.last_img

The Portsmouth-based ship had to travel in close proximity – around 50 metres – to the FS Somme to allow fuel lines to pass from the tanker to Illustrious.A delicate operation, this required tight control over the movement of the ship to avoid any stress on the lines and breaking the procedure.Usually practised by the Royal Navy with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary – this saw international partnership working in action with the sailors overcoming any language barriers to get the job done.HMS Illustrious, an amphibious helicopter and commando carrier, is part of the Royal Navy’s Response Force Task Group and is deployed with the Cougar 13 Task GroupThis is a versatile, flexible and scalable force which stands at very high readiness and is prepared to react to any contingency dictated by the UK government.During the four-month exercise, which includes three other warships and six RFAs, Illustrious will undertake international engagement and bilateral training with strategic partners throughout the Mediterranean and Gulf region.[mappress]Press Release, August 21, 2013; Image: Royal Navy Training & Education View post tag: HMS HMS Illustrious Conducts RAS with French Tankerlast_img read more

RHM focuses on seeded breads rather than GI

first_imgRHM bread bakeries is evalua-ting the Glycaemic Index diet system and any weight management benefits it offers, but has so far decided against promoting it.Speaking as Hovis prepared for a £1.1m relaunch of its Granary range this week, marketing manager for Hovis Granary Stephen Davis told British Baker RHM Bread Bakeries is “on top of” the low Glycaemic Index diet, which ranks foods on their effect on blood sugar levels, and is evaluating it.RHM Bread Bakeries tested a new range of four Granary loaves for their GI values, he said, but decided not to use any low-GI promotions on-pack. Under the GI system, slowly absorbed foods, such as wholemeal bread, have a low GI rating, while foods that are more quickly absorbed have a higher rating. But research has shown the GI system is “quite confusing to consumers”, Mr Davis said. “GI is very interesting, but it is quite confusing to consumers. It’s not something we want to major on.”The baker is re-launching its Granary range in response to the growing demand for premium and seeded bread products. Seeded bread has become a sector in its own right, worth £82m and growing 39% year-on-year, Mr Davis said.“We have done a lot of consumer research and found that, in some sectors, there is duplication,” he added, “but in the seeded sector there isn’t, and people are seeking more choice. We see this sector as offering the biggest opportunity for new product development.”Two new loaves, ‘Hovis Sunflower Granary’ and ‘Hovis Country Granary’, have been introduced to the range. Every loaf now comes with a topping of seeds or seeds and grains, and has a longer shelf life. Shelf presence has been enhanced by clearer Hovis and Granary branding and improved images on packs.All four 800g products in the Hovis Granary range are priced at £1.20, bringing pricing in line across the range, Mr Davis pointed out. Previously, Hovis’s Granary products were priced between £1.04 and £1.15. Mr Davis said the price rises covered costs of updating recipes and upgrading packaging film.last_img read more
