Cooperative Robots and Sensor Networks by Anis Koubaa, Abdelmajid Khelil

By Anis Koubaa, Abdelmajid Khelil

Mobile robots and instant Sensor Networks (WSNs) have enabled nice potentials and a wide house for ubiquitous and pervasive purposes. Robotics and WSNs have as a rule been regarded as separate learn fields and little paintings has investigated the wedding among those applied sciences. notwithstanding, those applied sciences proportion numerous good points, allow universal cyber-physical functions and supply complementary aid to every other.
 the first goal of booklet is to supply a reference for state-of-the-art reports and study developments bearing on robotics and sensor networks, and specifically for the coupling among them.

The e-book comprises 5 chapters. the 1st bankruptcy offers a cooperation approach for groups of a number of self sufficient automobiles to unravel the rendezvous challenge. the second one bankruptcy is prompted by way of the necessity to increase present options that care for connectivity prediction, and proposed a genetic desktop studying strategy for link-quality prediction. The 3rd bankruptcy provides an structure for indoor navigation utilizing an Android telephone for directing quite a few clients, from sighted to the visually impaired, to their meant vacation spot. In bankruptcy 4, the authors take care of actual prediction modeling of ocean currents for underwater glider navigation. In bankruptcy 5, the authors talk about the demanding situations and obstacles of RSS-based localization mechanisms and suggest, EasyLoc, an self sustaining and functional RSS-based localization procedure that satisfies ease of deployment and implementation.

Creating Cool MINDSTORMS NXT Robots (Technology in Action)

Who's This ebook For? quite often, this can be a publication that are meant to entertain everybody. If the interpreting will upload whatever to yourknowledge, a lot the higher! So, this e-book is for the following:• these from 6 to 106 years previous, wishing to construct cool LEGO robots to rejoice, withoutbeing specialist programmers. • those that are looking to construct a Johnny five copy (more than you may imagine!

PIC Microcontrollers: 50 Projects for Beginners & Experts

This ebook includes 50 enjoyable and fascinating tasks for PIC microcontrollers similar to a laser alarm, USB teasing mouse, eggtimer, adolescence repellent, soundswitch, capacitive liquid point gauge, "finger within the water" sensor, guarding a room utilizing a digital camera, mains gentle dimmer (110-240 volts), conversing microcontroller and masses extra. a number of various recommendations are mentioned similar to relay, alternating present regulate together with mains, I2C, SPI, RS232, USB, pulse width modulation, rotary encoder, interrupts, infrared, analog-digital conversion (and the wrong way around), 7-segment demonstrate or even CAN bus.

You can use this e-book to construct the initiatives on your personal use. The transparent motives, schematics or even photographs of every venture make this a enjoyable job. for every venture the speculation is mentioned and why the venture has been carried out in that individual means. that implies you may also use this publication as a studybook, or as foundation for better and extra advanced initiatives. All tasks use a breadboard so amendment and growth is easy.

Three PIC microcontrollers are used, the 16f877A, 18f4455 and 18f4685. it's also mentioned how one can migrate your undertaking from one microcontroller to a different - 15 forms are supported - together with instance projects.

All software program that's utilized in this publication will be downloaded at no cost. that still applies to the open resource programming language JAL. This strong and but effortless to profit language is utilized by hobbyists in addition to professionals.

This e-book is also used as a reference advisor. It explains all JAL instructions, in addition to the growth libraries. utilizing the index you could simply locate instance initiatives that illustrate using those instructions. even if you've outfitted all tasks during this booklet you are going to nonetheless are looking to continue it inside of arm's reach.
