The relevance of Human Robot Interaction to complement human skills in a manufacturing environment with industrial robots increases the concerns over safety of human and the robot. It is necessary to identify collision risks and avoid them otherwise production stops may cost a huge amount to the industry. A robot working at manufacturing facility should be able to predict potential collisions and must be able to prevent i.e. react automatically for safe detour around obstacle/human. Currently, industrial robots are able to detect collisions after a real contact but the existing proposals for avoiding collisions are either computationally expensive or not very well adapted to human safety. The objective of this paper is to provide intelligence to the industrial robot to predict collision risks and react automatically without stopping the production in a static environment. The proposed approach using Time of Flight (TOF) camera, provides decision regarding trajectory correction and improvement by shifting robot to a secure position. The application presented in this paper is for safe KUKA robot trajectory generation in peg-in-hole assembly process in the laboratory context. [less ▲]

The purpose of this paper is to present the academic debate on the interpretation of Article 125 TFEU and to critically demonstrate the jurisprudential controversy that surrounds this provision, both from the CJEU standpoint as well as the Bundesverfassungsgericht’s angle. While we believe that the Court interpreted rightly the provision at issue, we argue that it has left certain questions unanswered. The second part of the paper will develop our suggestion regarding the need to construct and adopt a ‘typus’, along the lines and by analogy to the ‘private investor principle’, as an appropriate form of legal reasoning for the interpretation of the ‘no bail-out clause’ proviso, that would allow more legal certainty as to the persisting question of what kind of financial assistance meets the purpose of Article 125 TFEU.

FULL TEXT Musical nationalism in Luxembourg does not follow the standard European pattern of a folk-inflected exceptionalism vis-à-vis the French/Italian/German mainstream, arising around the mid-19th century. Luxembourg was too small to initiate an own musical nationalism, and had been under foreign control for several centuries before developing into the direction of sovereignty between 1815 and 1890. At this time Luxembourg had only one music school, and no professional orchestra; but amateur ensembles began to emerge all over the country following the liberal constitution of 1848 which granted the right of association. Luxembourg composers born in the mid-century (e.g. Jean-Antoine Zinnen, 1827-1898, the composer of the national anthem) established themselves in the city of Luxembourg and composed for choir and for wind band; there is little overtly national bias in their work. In 1870 the diocese of Luxembourg was founded; this also had an influence on musical life. Henri Oberhoffer (1824-1885), organist at the cathedral of Luxembourg, and Laurent Menager (1835-1902) wrote sacred music; Oberhoffer was a champion of the Cecilian movement in Luxembourg with Franz Xaver Witt ran the periodical Cäcilia from 1862 to 1871. The outstanding composer of this first generation was Laurent Menager, the first to have studied music abroad – in Cologne, where he came in contact with several Romantic composers, among others his composition teacher Ferdinand Hiller. His 63 secular and sacred songs for four-part male choir and his 23 songs for voice and piano are a fine representation of the taste of the period, reminiscent of Schubert. [less ▲]

Despite the deleterious effect of hardware impairments on communication systems, most prior works have not investigated their impact on widely used relay systems. Most importantly, the application of inexpensive transceivers, being prone to hardware impairments, is the most cost-efficient way for the implementation of massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. Consequently, the direction of this paper is towards the investigation of the impact of hardware impairments on MIMO relay networks with large number of antennas. Specifically, we obtain the general expression for the ergodic capacity of dual-hop (DH) amplify-and-forward (AF) relay systems. Next, given the advantages of the free probability (FP) theory with comparison to other known techniques in the area of large random matrix theory, we pursue a large limit analysis in terms of number of antennas and users by shedding light to the behavior of relay systems inflicted by hardware impairments.

While the passage from youth to the age of adulthood is no longer generally signified at a specific age, for young people from child protection services this is not the case as it clearly corresponds to the age of departure from the placement. Leaving the child protection structure is a crucial step. Professionals’ work involves preparing young people for leaving and thus “helping them towards autonomy”. This article deciphers factors that have an impact on this moment of time and can affect what happens later. It discusses the “injunction to be autonomous” and its’ consequences as signified at a relatively early age compared to other groups of young people. Young people from child protection do not have the benefit of a time period enabling them to live through life experiences and they are not permitted to be “young”. Furthermore, these young people and their families often have no social capital. This article shows how can professionals take theses aspects into account in their work with them. [less ▲]

The education system in Luxembourg requires highly developed language competences in three languages. This situation is challenging for all children. The iPad app iTEO records and edits oral language and offers innovative methods to develop languages. Children draw on their language repertoires, thereby translanguaging, and work autonomously and collaboratively in order to produce oral texts. This article presents, first, the efforts of two children in year 1 who record themselves in French on iTEO, and, second, the pedagogical practices in that class as well as changes over time.

The building facade greatly influences energy demand, internal comfort and environmental quality of office buildings. This paper shows the influence of relevant design parameters for highly glazed systems. In detail constructive and technical measures have been evalutated to optimise light weight composite and solid structures in European climate. The structure type and the glazing share indeed have some influence on the energetic and thermal behaviour of the building but the influence of the ventilation strategy is significantly higher. However, in case of an adequate ventilation strategy, the structure type becomes more decisive if a thermal optimisation, especially a reduction of the over-heating risk, shall be achieved. [less ▲]

In 1920 Prandtl published an analytical solution for the bearing capacity of a maximum strip load on a weightless infinite half-space. This solution was extended by Reissner in 1924 with a surrounding surcharge. Keverling Buisman (1940) extended the Prandtl-Reissner formula for the soil weight. It was Terzaghi (1943) who wrote this in the form which is nowadays used. Since then several people proposed equations for the soil-weight bearing capacity factor. In this paper, we show that all those equations assume a Prandtl failure mechanism, while Finite Element Modelling (FEM) of strip footings on cohesion less materials proofs a global failure mechanism. Also these equations result in a higher bearing capacity than found with FEM. This means that the currently used equations for the soil-weight bearing capacity factor, and also the corresponding shape factor, are inaccurate and unsafe. Therefore new equations for the soil-weight bearing capacity factor, the soil-weight shape factor and the surcharge shape factor have been presented in this paper. [less ▲]

FULL TEXT The first folksong collection in Luxembourg, Die luxemburger Volkslieder älterer Zeit, compiled by the folklorist and ethnologist Edmond de la Fontaine (alias Dicks, 1823-1891), was published posthumously in 1904. It contains only forty songs, and due to the unscientific way they had been collected, some important information is missing; nonetheless it offers a first glipse into folksongs in 19th-century Luxembourg. Their lyrics were adapted to the Luxembourg context, although only a few songs originate from the country. A scholarly, methodical folksong collection following the model of Erk and Böhme’s Deutscher Liederhort (1893-94) was published in 1937, entitled Singendes Volk. Its author, Mattias Thill, a primary school teacher, spent about four decades collecting songs throughout the Grand Duchy; again, most songs are variants of existing songs of non-Luxembourgish origin, 65% from Germany and a mere 3% from France. The remaining 32% have Luxembourgish texts (which, again, speaks for their more complete integration into Luxembourg life, not necessarily for a Luxembourg origin). Indigenous songs are often related to the military history and to the fortress of Luxembourg. Folk music in Luxembourg is predominantly vocal, with the one curious exception of a mystical blind violin-playing minstrel, Matthias Schou (alias Blannen Theis, 1747-1824) who was led from parish fair to parish fair by his wife and entertained the peasant population with his songs. Until today no sources have been discovered, but it is assumed that this troubadour is at the origin of melodies gathered a century later. In three cases, songs were subsequently arranged to instrumental music at a later date and gained a persistent performative presence to the point of becoming markers of Luxembourgish musical identity: the Wilhelmus, the Song of the dancing Procession, and the Hämmelsmarsch The Wilhelmus is the anthem of the Grand-Ducal court (not of the country), and is performed at the occasion of an official appearance of the Grand-Duke or of a member of his family. The melody is a variant of the Dutch national anthem Wilhelmus van Nassouwe, evidently based on Mozart’s Seven variations on Wilem Van Nassau (1766, KV 25) The “Song of the Dancing Procession” originates from the famous Procession of Echternach, and is based on the German folksong Adam hatte sieben Söhn’, arranged to a Rheinländerpolka for wind band in a medium tempo suitable for pilgrims taking three steps forward and two steps backwards. The Hämmelsmarsch, a beggar song derived from a 14th-century shepherd’s fair song, was played by pipers and drummers while visitors had to pay a fee. Modern-day local wind bands maintain this tradition, strolling the streets during parish fairs and requesting financial donations while playing this song. [less ▲]
