  • Shankar, P; Nawaqgamuwa, UP [Conference-Abstract]
    Northern region of Sri Lanka is undergoing a massive infrastructure development especially in the road sector development during a shorter period. Northern region emerged with few new problems such as scarcity of construction ...
  • Nawagamuwa, UP; Senarathne, RAM; Dilanka, SPT [Conference-Abstract]
    Sri Lanka has faced a huge MSW problem due to dumping in the areas where lots of develop-ment activities are being taken place. It is very important to study whether those dumped wastes could be used for different applications ...
  • Nawagamuwa, UP; Dayarathne, WHRS [Conference-Abstract]
    Civil engineering construction in the Colombo city area have commenced on lands previously used for the dumping of waste. Construction on covered dump wastes will cause a lot of problems, such as settlement, slope ...
  • Nawagamuwa, UP; Muhilan, K [Conference-Abstract]
    Open dumping has been widely used to dump wastes in developing countries. In Sri Lanka, most of the dumpsites are open dumpsites. Due to high demand for lands, previously abandoned lands are now utilized for construction ...
  • Nawagamuwa, UP; Sarangan, S; Janagan, B; Neerajapriya, S [Conference-Abstract]
    There have been several studies on the properties of plants which are beneficial to critical slopes in preventing failures. However, the impacts of the tensile properties of the plant roots have to be studied in detail. ...
  • Nawagamuwa, UP; Gunaratne, WDSP; Kirubajiny, P; Thiviya, T; Priyadharshana, HKA [Conference-Abstract]
    Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is an area which has got the attention of geotechnical engineers currently with their researches, due to the requirement of land in order to cater increasing population. Therefore, the focus of ...
  • Muthugala, MAVJ; Jayasekara, AGBP [Conference-Abstract]
    This paper proposes a method for adapting robot’s perception to produce fuzzy vocal responses about the size of an object based on the visual attention of the robot. In a humanhuman interaction, the humans may use vocal ...
  • Jayaweera, WGN; Jayasekara, AGBP; Abeykoon, AMHS [Conference-Abstract]
    The Human shows a remarkable capability in localizing a sound source and navigating towards it. In the current context of robotic applications, machinery models have been developed, so that they can be used in sound source ...
  • Bambaravanage, T; Rodrigo, A; Kumarawadu, S; Lidula, NWA [Conference-Abstract]
    Abstract−Emergency load shedding for preventing frequency degradation is an established practice all over the world. The objective of load shedding is to balance load and generation. This paper presents a methodology to ...
  • Kalpage, KMT; Peiris, KRD; Perera, KAIRP; Siriwardana, MGCI; Lidula, NWA [Conference-Abstract]
    In deploying a large scale wind power plant, there are several aspects that have to be assessed. Among them the initial site screening for wind power plants, wind data assessment and proper selection of wind turbines are ...
  • Lidula, NWA; Kodikara, GR [Conference-Abstract]
    Conventional distribution system is generally passive having a unidirectional power flow from its grid substation to the loads. With the addition of Distributed Generation (DG) in to the system, power flow becomes bidirectional ...
  • Naotunna, I; Perera, CJ; Sandaruwan, C; Gopura, RARC; Lalitharatne, TD [Conference-Abstract]
    Need of assistive robots for performing activities of daily living is increasing with the reduction of labor force in the welfare and nursing care. Self-feeding or eating is one of the primary activities of a human in ...
  • Madusanka, DGK; Gopura, RARC; Amarasinghe, YWR; Mann, GKI [Conference-Abstract]
    Transhumeral prosthesis is used to cater upper limb amputees who lost their limb above elbow. In order to restore the functionality of upper limb, researchers are working on developing prosthesis and their controllers. ...
  • Dasanayake, WDIG; Gopura, RARC; Dassanayake, VPC [Conference-Abstract]
    This paper proposes two kinematic based task classification methods to aid control of a transhumeral prosthesis. The first method is a neural network based classifier where the angles of shoulder flexion/extension, shoulder ...
  • Madusanka, DGK; Wijayasingha, LNS; Sanjeevan, K; Ahamed, MAR; Edirisooriya, JCW; Gopura, RARC [Conference-Abstract]
    A robotic prosthesis is a device which is used to replace a missing body part. These devices are intended to return the amputees to their pre-amputation functional status. Below knee (Transtibial) amputation is the most ...
  • Gunasekara, jmp; Gopura, RARC; Jayawardena, TSS [Conference-Abstract]
    Enhancing physical Human-Robot Interaction (pHRI) is an important design aspect in upper limb exoskeleton robots. The level of manipulation provided by an exoskeleton robot has a significant effect to perform daily tasks. ...
  • Bandara, DSV; Gopura, RARC; Kajanthan, G; Brunthavan, M; Abeynayake, HIMM [Conference-Abstract]
    Robotic hands can be applied in different applications such as prosthesis, humanoid robots, industrial robotic manipulators and other kinds of robotic arms. Introduction of robotic technology into the field of prosthesis ...
  • Bandara, DSV; Gopura, RARC; Hemapala, KTMU; Kiguchi, K [Conference-Abstract]
    An anthropomorphic transradial prosthetic arm is proposed in this paper. In order to generate the wrist flexion/extension and ulna/radial deviation, a novel wrist mechanism is proposed based on the parallel prismatic ...
  • Randunupura, SN; Hadiwattege, C [Conference-Abstract]
    Construction is the ultimate objective of a design, and the transformation of a design by construction into a useful structure which is accomplished through proper management of human, material, machineries and equipment ...
  • Kularathna, MARN; Perera, BAKS; Gunarathna, MACL; Seneviratne, LDIP [Conference-Abstract]
    Life Cycle Cost management is of utmost importance in facing the challenges that will confront the construction sector in future. Though the Bill of Quantities (BQ) is an important document for managing the cost, BQs are ...
