Whole-Body Impedance Control of Wheeled Humanoid Robots by Alexander Dietrich

By Alexander Dietrich

Introducing cellular humanoid robots into human environments calls for the structures to bodily have interaction and execute a number of concurrent projects. The monograph handy offers a whole-body torque controller for dexterous and secure robot manipulation. This keep an eye on method permits a cellular humanoid robotic to concurrently meet numerous regulate pursuits with various pre-defined degrees of precedence, whereas offering the talents for compliant actual contacts with people and the environment.

After a common creation into the subject of whole-body regulate, a number of crucial reactive projects are constructed to increase the repertoire of robot keep watch over targets. also, the classical Cartesian impedance is prolonged to the case of cellular robots. All of those projects are then mixed and built-in into an total, priority-based keep an eye on legislation. in addition to the experimental validation of the procedure, the formal evidence of asymptotic balance for this hierarchical controller is gifted. via interconnecting the whole-body controller with a man-made intelligence, the massive strength of the built-in strategy for complicated real-world purposes is proven. numerous standard loved ones chores, equivalent to autonomously wiping a window or sweeping the ground with a brush, are effectively played at the cellular humanoid robotic Rollin’ Justin of the German Aerospace heart (DLR).

The effects recommend the provided controller for a wide number of fields of software comparable to carrier robotics, human-robot cooperation in undefined, telepresence in scientific functions, house robotics eventualities, and the operation of cellular robots in harmful and unsafe environments.

Designed for Use: Create Usable Interfaces for Applications by Lukas Mathis

By Lukas Mathis

This publication is for designers, builders, and product managers who're charged with what occasionally appears like an most unlikely job: ensuring items paintings the way in which your clients count on them to. you can find out easy methods to layout purposes and internet sites that individuals won't in simple terms use, yet will totally love. the second one version brings the e-book modern and expands it with 3 thoroughly new chapters.

Interaction layout - the way in which the apps on our telephones paintings, the best way we input a vacation spot into our car's GPS - is changing into progressively more very important. determine and connect undesirable software program layout by means of making usability the cornerstone of your layout process.

Lukas weaves jointly hands-on options and primary thoughts. each one approach bankruptcy explains a selected procedure you should use to make your product extra person pleasant, corresponding to storyboarding, usability checks, and paper prototyping. thought chapters are concept-based: the way to write usable textual content, how practical your designs should still glance, while to take advantage of animations. This new version is up-to-date and elevated with new chapters protecting necessities amassing, how the layout of knowledge buildings affects the person interface, and the way to do layout paintings as a staff. via copious illustrations and assisting mental learn, specialist developer and person interface fashion designer Lukas Mathis supplies a deep dive into study, layout, and implementation--the crucial phases in designing usable interfaces for purposes and websites.

Lukas conjures up you to examine layout in a complete new means, explaining precisely what to seem for - and what to prevent - in growing items that get humans excited.

Advances in Speech Recognition: Mobile Environments, Call by Amy Neustein

By Amy Neustein

best Leaders communicate Out Judith Markowitz whilst Amy requested me to co-author the foreword to her new publication on advances in speech popularity, i used to be commemorated. Amy’s paintings has consistently been infused with c- ative depth, so I knew the booklet will be as fascinating for tested speech execs as for readers new to the speech-processing undefined. the truth that i'd be writing the foreward with invoice Scholz made the task much more stress-free. invoice and i've identified one another on the grounds that he was once at UNISYS directing initiatives that had a profound impression on speech-recognition instruments and purposes. invoice Scholz the chance to arrange this foreword with Judith offers me with a unprecedented oppor- nity to collaborate with a professional speech expert to spot a variety of signi- cant contributions to the sector provided by way of the members whom Amy has recruited. Judith and i've had our eyes opened via the tips and analyses provided via this number of authors. Speech reputation now not wishes be relegated to the ca- gory of an experimental destiny expertise; it's the following this day with adequate potential to deal with the main difficult of initiatives. And the point-click-type method of GUI keep watch over is not any longer enough, in particular within the context of barriers of mode- day hand-held units. as an alternative, VUI and GUI are being built-in into unified multimodal suggestions which are maturing into the elemental paradigm for comput- human interplay within the future.
