The coordination of interpersonal rhythmic movements is of great significance due to its potential relevance to human motor rehabilitation. In this paper we consider the problem of designing a controller able to drive a virtual player (VP) capable of imitating and following a human player in the mirror game . The classic nonlinear HakenKelso-Bunz (HKB) model is adopted to describe the social motor coordination between two players. An adaptive control algorithm is developed and implemented on the HKB model to drive the VP. It is proven that the position error between the VP driven by our control algorithm and the human player is upper bounded during the game. Finally, experiments are conducted on a prototype set-up in order to evaluate the performance of the proposed control algorithm and compare it with other existing algorithms.

The use of CFD coupled with physical testing to develop a new range of vortex flow controls with attributes approaching the ideal flow control device Jarman, DS; Tabor, G; Butler, D; et al. (American Society of Civil Engineers, 21 July 2011)Vortex flow controls (VFC) are devices which are well suited for use in drainage systems, as they exhibit non-constant, non-linear discharge coefficients that can be tailored to approach that of a constant flow-rate device. ...
The effect of dietary nitrate supplementation on the oxygen cost of cycling, walking performance and resting blood pressure in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: A double blind placebo controlled, randomised control trial Shepherd, AI; Wilkerson, DP; Dobson, Lee; et al. (Elsevier, 13 January 2015)Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) results in exercise intolerance. Dietary nitrate supplementation has been shown to lower blood pressure (BP), reduce the oxygen cost of exercise, and enhance exercise tolerance ...
