This volume contains 92 papers on the state-of-the-art in robotics research. In this volume topics on modelling and identification are treated first as they build the basis for practically all control aspects. Then, the most basic control tasks are discussed i.e. problems of inverse kinematics. Groups of papers follow which deal with various advanced control aspects. They range from rather general methods to more specialized topics such as force control and control of hydraulic robots. The problem of path planning is addressed and strategies for robots with one arm, for mobile robots and for multiple arm robots are presented. Also covered are computational improvements and software tools for simulation and control, the integration of sensors and sensor signals in robot control.
This acoustics handbook for mechanical and architectural applications is a translation of the German standard work on the subject. It not only describes the state of art of engineering acoustics but also gives practical help to engineers for solving acoustic problems. It deals with the origin, the transmission and the methods of abatement of air-borne and structure-borne sound of different kinds, from traffic to machinery and flow induced sound.
Here is a valuable book for a first undergraduate course in discrete systems and digital signal processing (DSP) and for in-practice engineers seeking a self-study text on the subject. Readers will find the book easy to read, with topics flowing and connecting naturally. Fundamentals and first principles central to most DSP applications are presented through carefully developed, worked out examples and problems. Unlike more theoretically demanding texts, this book does not require a prerequisite course in linear systems theory. The text focuses on problem-solving and developing interrelationships and connections between topics. This emphasis is carried out in a number of innovative features, including organized procedures for filter design and use of computer-based problem-solving methods. Solutions Manual is available only through your Addison-Wesley Sales Specialist.
This comprehensive text provides the hearing health professional with a broad overview of the advances in technology and clinical insights relating to hearing aid devices and those who use them. Emphasis is given to the most current advances in clinical assessment and hearing instrument technology. In addition to clinical assessment techniques, this text offers detailed analysis of the application of digital signal processing. Psychology is included to help professionals meet clients' emotional as well as acoustic needs. This is a valuable book for academic and clinical professionals involved in the selection and fitting of hearing aid devices for the acoustically impaired
Noise cancellation is particularly important in the new mobile communications field, with respect to background noise and acoustic interference in moving vehicles. This comprehensive text develops a coherent and structured presentation of a broad range of the theory and application of statistical signal processing, with emphasis on digital noise reduction algorithms. Other applications covered are spectral estimation, channel equalisation, speech coding over noisy channels, speech recognition in adverse environments, active noise control, echo cancellation, restoration of lost filters, and adaptive notch filters.
