Computational principles of mobile robotics by Gregory Dudek

By Gregory Dudek

Cellular robotics is a multidisciplinary box concerning either desktop technological know-how and engineering. Addressing the layout of automatic structures, it lies on the intersection of man-made intelligence, computational imaginative and prescient, and robotics. This textbook for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars emphasizes algorithms for quite a number options for locomotion, sensing, and reasoning. It concentrates on wheeled and legged cellular robots yet discusses various different propulsion platforms. the recent variation comprises advances in robotics and clever machines over the past ten years, together with major insurance of SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) and multi-robot structures. It contains extra mathematical heritage and an intensive record of pattern difficulties. a number of mathematical innovations that have been assumed within the first variation at the moment are in short brought in appendices on the finish of the textual content to make the booklet extra self-contained. Researchers in addition to scholars within the box of cellular robotics will relish this entire remedy of cutting-edge tools and key applied sciences

Programming Cameras and Pan-Tilts with DirectX and Java by Ioannis Pavlidis

By Ioannis Pavlidis

The fast upward push of PC-based cameras has bring about the large progress of software program purposes that use real-time video programming. those functions comprise video conferencing, machine video games, medical learn, computerized safety and surveillance, commercial inspection, and internet cameras. formerly, builders needed to seek via producer manuals or learn papers in desktop imaginative and prescient or photograph processing to benefit tips on how to software units for those applications.

Programming Cameras and Pan-Tilts with DirectX and Java is the 1st ebook to supply useful instruments and strategies for these suffering to realize an in-depth figuring out of programming desktop imaginative and prescient functions with reside digital camera streams and pan-tilt units. It exhibits find out how to construct DirectShow filters from scratch and introduces computing device imaginative and prescient ideas as had to comprehend the code. precise emphasis is dedicated to DirectShow programming and well known laptop imaginative and prescient functions comparable to segmentation and monitoring.

*Shows step by step how you can application cameras for a number of purposes in either visible C++ .NET and the Java Media Framework (JMF).
*Describes programming tools confirmed in business and learn settings that may be used with any digital camera that connects to a computer via a DirectShow-compliant body grabber.
*Provides easy-to-understand reasons of the underlying recommendations of the code examples appropriate for these learning desktop imaginative and prescient, picture processing, or multimedia.
*Includes a CD-ROM with the entire resource code from the booklet and a significant other site with extra code and alertness examples.

Robust Recognition via Information Theoretic Learning by Ran He

By Ran He

This Springer short represents a entire overview of knowledge theoretic equipment for strong attractiveness. numerous info theoretic equipment were proffered some time past decade, in a wide number of desktop imaginative and prescient purposes; this paintings brings them jointly, makes an attempt to impart the idea, optimization and utilization of data entropy.

The authors hotel to a brand new details theoretic inspiration, correntropy, as a strong degree and use it on clear up powerful face popularity and item reputation difficulties. For computational potency, the short introduces the additive and multiplicative sorts of half-quadratic optimization to successfully reduce entropy difficulties and a two-stage sparse presentation framework for giant scale acceptance difficulties. It additionally describes the strengths and deficiencies of other strong measures in fixing strong acceptance problems.

SVG Animations From Common UX Implementations to Complex by Sarah Drasner

By Sarah Drasner

SVG is intensely robust, with its diminished HTTP requests and crispness on any demonstrate. It turns into progressively more fascinating as you discover its functions for responsive animation and function boons. should you animate SVG, you need to concentrate on common photo characteristics like composition, colour, implementation, and optimization. but if you animate, it raises the complexity of every of those elements exponentially. This sensible e-book takes a deep dive into how one can to resolve those issues of balance, functionality, and creativity in brain. find out how to make SVG cross-browser appropriate, backwards appropriate, optimized, and responsive Plan and debug animation Make a fancy animation responsive, as many websites are responsive Profile each one animation method by way of functionality so you comprehend what youre getting into to with every one library or local know-how

Visual quantum mechanics selected topics with computer by Bernd Thaller

By Bernd Thaller

Using visualization thoughts significantly complements the knowledge of quantum mechanics because it permits us to depict phenomena that can not be visible by way of the other potential. "Visual Quantum Mechanics" makes use of the pc generated animations came across at the accompanying CD-ROM to introduce, inspire, and illustrate the techniques defined within the e-book. for instance, via observing QuickTime videos of the recommendations of Schroedinger's equation, scholars may be capable of advance a feeling for the habit of quantum mechanical structures that can't be received through traditional skill.

While there are different books out there that use Mathematica and Maple to coach quantum mechanics, this e-book differs in that the textual content describes the mathematical and actual principles of quantum mechanics within the traditional demeanour, without precise emphasis on computational physics or the requirement that the reader comprehend a symbolic computation package deal or Mathematica. during this ebook, as a substitute, the pc is used to supply easy accessibility to a wide number of lively illustrations, interactive photographs, and many supplementary fabrics. "Visual Quantum Mechanics" takes a mathematical instead of a actual method of quantum mechanics, and contains effects extra regular in additional complex books yet that are extra understandable through visualization. regardless of the shows of complicated effects, the publication calls for basically calculus, and the ebook will fill the space among classical quantum mechanics texts and mathematically complicated books.This publication in addition to its accompanying CD-ROM, which incorporates over three hundred electronic video clips, shape a whole introductory direction on spinless debris in a single and dimensions. there's a moment publication in improvement on the way to hide such issues as round symmetry in 3 dimensions, the hydrogen atom, scattering conception and resonances, periodic potentials, debris with spin, an relativistic difficulties (the Dirac equation).
