The New Communications Technologies, Fifth Edition: Applications, Policy, and Impact

Buy
"Although the book is directed toward technology courses...it makes for interesting, thought-provoking reading." - Monitoring Times

As new communications applications are developed and brought to market, it is vital for communications professionals to keep abreast of these issues. Since the technologies and applications also affect our daily lives, it is important to understand how they will shape the country and, by extension, the world at large. International censorship, the impact of the Internet and wireless tools, and th legisation following the World Trade Center bombing all fall into this category.

The New Communications Technologies, Fifth Edition, provides vital information on the new and emerging technologies that will shape the way communicators do business. The book explores the new communications technologies and covers topics ranging from multimedia and production to satellites to digital communication. Just as important, the book examines the social, economic, and political impact brought about by the adoption of such technologies and applications; this fallout includes privacy concerns, First Amendment issues, and the implications raised by biometric systems.

* Expanded coverage of emerging technologies, and legal issues
* Completely reorganized to enhance the information flow from topic to topic
* The authors' Instructor's Manual is available from the Publisher

New to this edition are chapters on information services (the internet and the world wide web), wireless communications, email and privacy, the new technologies and the first amendment. The book also includes coverage of the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

Increasing Perceptual Skills of Robots Through Proximal Force/Torque Sensors: A Study for the Implementation of Active Compliance on the iCub Humanoid Robot (Springer Theses)
Increasing Perceptual Skills of Robots Through Proximal Force/Torque Sensors: A Study for the Implementation of Active Compliance on the iCub Humanoid Robot (Springer Theses)

This thesis proposes an effective methodology for enhancing the perceptual capabilities and achieving interaction control of the iCub humanoid robot. The method is based on the integration of measurements from different sensors (force/torque, inertial and tactile sensors) distributed along the robot’s kinematic chain. Humanoid robots...
