2021 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA),Xi’an China, 30 May - 5 June 2021

Driving energy consumption plays a major role in mobile robots navigating challenging environments, especially if they are left to operate unattended under limited on-board power. This paper reports on first results of an energy-aware path planner, which can provide estimates of the driving energy consumption and energy recovery of a robot traversi…

30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

The Chinese Fusion Engineering Test Reactor (CFETR) bridges the gap between ITER and a demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO). The primary objectives of CFETR are: demonstrate tritium self-sufficiency, ~1GW fusion power, operate in steady-state and have a duty cycle of 0.3-0.5 [1]. CFETR is in the pre-conceptual design phase and is currently envis…

27th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, Ahmedabad, India, 22-27 October 2018

The spherical torus/tokamak (ST) is a potentially attractive configuration for narrowing scientific and technical gaps to a fusion demonstration power plant and as a more compact and/or modular fusion power source. Due to a reduced plasma surface area to volume ratio, the ST configuration offers the potential to access high power exhaust heat fl…
