Book Description:
In the opening chapter, Moustafa M. Kurdi, PhD addresses the simulation of the navigation of a heterogeneous group of robots, an unmanned ground vehicle, an unmanned aerial vehicle through GPS, and digital map and image processing using the probabilistic roadmap method. In the second chapter by Rocco Salvatore Calabrò, Margherita Russo, Antonio Buda, Luigi Carioti, Aurelio Crespantini, Bruno Porcari, Antonio Leo, Giuseppe Silvestri, Alberto Cacciola, Antonino Naro, and Placido Bramanti, the technological advances made regarding the use of robotic devises in physical therapy are addressed. Following this, the writers provide an overview of the most up-and-coming devices for neurological gait rehabilitation and discuss virtual reality. Next, the new industrial revolution commonly referred to as “Industry 4.0” is discussed in the third chapter by Eduardo Cardoso Moraes. The technologies involved and their possible impacts are also discussed. In the fourth chapter, Yuo-Tern Tsai presents a study encompassing a systematic method of fault diagnosis based on function elements in order to aid in fault identification, in hopes that the results may be useful in planning diagnosis action for a system. Kenneth A. Lachlan, Adam Rainear, Patric R. Spence, Joshua Fishlock, Bryan Vanco, and Zhan Xu showcase an experiment that compared robot delivery and audience involvement by evaluating in terms of risk assessment, negative affect, and impressions of associated organizations in the fifth chapter. In the sixth chapter, Abdul Khaliq and Samsher Singh examine a conceptual gas turbine cycle subjected to absorption inlet cooling and evaporative after cooling of the compressed air in an effort to make the turbine insensitive to seasonal temperature fluctuations. In the seventh chapter, Gergana G. Nestorova, PhD deliberates on the conception of lab-on-a-chip systems with integrated miniaturized thermoelectric sensors and their potential uses for detection of chemical/biological events. In the eighth chapter, Carlos A. R. Soares, Márcio S. Costa, and Jorge L. M. Amaral demonstrate the top three open standards for wireless industrial networks (WIA-PA, ISA100.11a and WirelessHART) while also elaborating on several problems raised by their implementation in real world application. In the last chapter, Carmen A. Carabali, Jose Aguilar, and Chávez Danilo point out and elaborate on how a smart environment should be able to decipher aberrations in the people within it and thus provide effectual resolutions with peak resource management.
