Download E-books Advances in Visual Computing: 6th International Symposium, ISVC 2010, Las Vegas, NV, USA, November 29-December 1, 2010, Proceedings, Part I (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) PDF

It's with nice excitement that we current the complaints of the sixth Inter- tional, Symposium on visible Computing (ISVC 2010), which was once held in Las Vegas, Nevada. ISVC presents a standard umbrella for the 4 major components of visible computing together with imaginative and prescient, pix, visualization, and digital truth. The objective is to supply a discussion board for researchers, scientists, engineers, and pr- titioners in the course of the international to offer their most recent study ?ndings, principles, advancements, and purposes within the broader sector of visible computing. This 12 months, this system consisted of 14 oral periods, one poster consultation, 7 specific tracks, and six keynote displays. The reaction to the decision for papers used to be first-class; we bought over three hundred submissions for the most symposium from which we authorised ninety three papers for oral presentation and seventy three papers for poster p- sentation. particular music papers have been solicited individually throughout the Organizing and software Committees of every song. a complete of forty four papers have been approved for oral presentation and six papers for poster presentation within the distinctive tracks.

Download E-books Funology: From Usability to Enjoyment (Human-Computer Interaction Series) PDF

This booklet displays the movement in Human desktop interplay reviews from average usability issues in the direction of a much broader set of difficulties to do with enjoyable, amusement, aesthetics and the event of use.

Traditionally HCI has been considering paintings and activity dependent functions yet as electronic applied sciences proliferate in the house enjoyable turns into a huge factor. there's a longtime physique of data and various strategies and strategies for making items and interfaces usable, yet a long way much less is understood approximately find out how to lead them to stress-free.

Perhaps sooner or later there'll be a physique of information and a collection of ideas for assessing the excitement of interplay that might be as thorough as those who at the moment examine usability. This publication is a primary step in the direction of that. It brings jointly various researchers from academia and to supply solutions. individuals contain Alan Dix, Jacob Nielsen and Mary Beth Rosson in addition to a couple of different researchers from academia and undefined.

Download E-books A Perspective on Stereophonic Acoustic Echo Cancellation (Springer Topics in Signal Processing) PDF

Single-channel hands-free teleconferencing platforms have gotten renowned. to be able to increase the verbal exchange caliber of those platforms, progressively more stereophonic sound units with loudspeakers and microphones are deployed. due to the coupling among loudspeakers and microphones, there's robust echoes, which make real-time verbal exchange very tough. the way in which we all know to cancel those echoes is through a stereo acoustic echo canceller (SAEC), which might be modelled as a two-input/two-output method with genuine random variables. during this paintings, the authors recast this challenge right into a single-input/single-output approach with complicated random variables because of the generally linear version. From this new handy formula, they re-derive an important features of a SAEC, together with identity of the echo paths with adaptive filters, double-talk detection, and suppression.

Download E-books Wxpython in Action PDF

By Noel Rappin

Because they can be huge and intricate, GUI programming instrument kits should be not easy to exploit. wxPython is a mix of the Python programming language and the wxWidgets toolkit, which permits programmers to create courses with a powerful, hugely practical graphical consumer interface, easily and simply. wxPython combines the facility of an extremely entire consumer interface toolkit with an incredibly versatile programming language. the result's a toolkit that's specific within the ease with which complicated functions might be equipped and maintained.

""wxPython in Action"" is a whole consultant to the wxPython toolkit, containing an academic for purchasing begun, a advisor to top practices, and a connection with wxPython's wide widget set. After a simple creation to wxPython options and programming practices, the e-book takes an in-depth travel of while and the way to exploit the bountiful selection of widgets provided through wxPython. All gains are illustrated with invaluable code examples and reference tables are incorporated for convenient search for of an object's homes, tools, and occasions. The publication allows builders to profit wxPython speedy and continues to be a precious source for futurework.

Download E-books Robot Physical Interaction through the combination of Vision, Tactile and Force Feedback: Applications to Assistive Robotics (Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics) PDF

By Mario Prats, Pedro J. Sanz

Robot manipulation is a smart problem; it encompasses versatility -adaptation to various situations-, autonomy -independent robotic operation-, and dependability -for good fortune below modeling or sensing mistakes. a whole manipulation activity includes, first, an appropriate clutch or touch configuration, and the next movement required through the duty. This monograph provides a unified framework by means of introducing task-related features into the knowledge-based snatch proposal, resulting in task-oriented grasps.

Similarly, grasp-related matters also are thought of through the execution of a job, resulting in grasp-oriented initiatives referred to as framework for actual interplay (FPI). The e-book offers the theoretical framework for the flexible specification of actual interplay projects, in addition to the matter of independent making plans of those projects. an extra concentration is on sensor-based responsible execution combining 3 types of sensors: strength, imaginative and prescient and tactile.

The FPI process permits to accomplish quite a lot of robotic manipulation projects. All contributions are demonstrated with a number of experiments utilizing diversified actual robots put on family environments; for example, a high-DoF humanoid robotic can effectively function unmodeled mechanisms with greatly various constitution in a normal means with traditional motions.

This study was once recipient of the eu Georges Giralt Award and the Robotdalen clinical Award Honorary Mention.
