Through the use of a fictional story, this book details how to build and design robots. Max, the story´s main character, is part of an archaeological expedition investigating a newly discovered Mayan pyramid. During the expedition, the team encounters various problems, each solved with the help of a unique robot that Max creates using the Lego Mindstorms NXT kit. Although the book reveals possible robotic solutions and offers detailed information on how to build and program each robot, readers are encouraged to come up with their own. The book includes complete building theory information and provides worksheets for brainstorming.
This book gathers the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Computational Science and Technology 2019 (ICCST2019), held in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, on 29-30 August 2019. The respective contributions offer practitioners and researchers a range of new computational techniques and solutions, identify emerging issues, and outline future research directions, while also showing them how to apply the latest large-scale, high-performance computational methods.
A calibrated camera is the key to each optical measurement problem. This work introduces camera modelling and calibration in computer vision. Tobias Hanning explains the classic pinhole camera model with distortion derived from third order optics and shows how to obtain an optimal solution within this model. The limitations of the classic camera model in computer vision are explained and proven experimentally. To overcome these limitations two alternative approaches which augment the standard model are presented.
This book presents the latest findings in the areas of data management and smart computing, big data management, artificial intelligence and data analytics, along with advances in network technologies. It addresses state-of-the-art topics and discusses challenges and solutions for future development. Gathering original, unpublished contributions by scientists from around the globe, the book is mainly intended for a professional audience of researchers and practitioners in academia and industry.
