Unobstructed Shortest Paths in Polyhedral Environments (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)

Buy

The study of minimum paths on or around polyhedra in Euclidean 3-space is of growing importance in robotics. This work presents new algorithms based on extensions of the Voronoi diagram. Since experience with new algo- rithms is also important, this work also describes a workbench to allow experimentation.

This book is based on the Ph.D. research of my former student, Varol Akman, who graduated from the Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineer- ing Dept. of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in August 1985.

We wish to thank the other members of his committee: Frank DiCesare, Mukkai S. Krishnamoorthy, and James M. Tien. We also wish to thank Herbert Freeman for employing him in the Image Processing Lab at RPI, Michael J. Wozny for employing him in the Center for Interactive Com- puter Graphics, and Edwin Rogers for granting free access to the Computer Science Dept. facilities.

This research has been supported by the National Science Foundation under grants ECS 80-21504 and ECS 83-51942, by the Schlumberger-Doll Research Center, Ridgefield, Connecticut, USA, by a Fulbright Award, and by the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey. The views expressed in this work are those of the author alone, and no endorsement is expressed or implied by the support.

Nagios: System and Network Monitoring

Good system administrators recognize problems long before anyone asks, "Hey, is the Internet down?" Nagios, an open source system and network monitoring tool, has emerged as the most popular solution for sys admins in organizations of all sizes. It's robust but also complex, and Nagios: System and Network Monitoring, 2nd...

Risk Management in Software Development Projects (Computer Weekly Professional)
Risk Management in Software Development Projects (Computer Weekly Professional)
A recent paper by the author, ‘Risk in Software Projects’ (in Management Services, October 2001), briefly referred to risk mitigation and its role in the risk management process. Publication of this paper prompted considerable discussion and requests for further information, particularly on software projects in...

Programming Microcontrollers in C, Second Edition (Embedded Technology Series)

Today, even more than when the first edition of this book was written, the use of microcontrollers has expanded to an almost unbelievable level.  A typical car has 15 microcontrollers. A modern home can have more than50 microcontrollers controlling everything from the thermostat, to the furnace, to the microwave. Microcontrollers are...

The DFT: An Owners' Manual for the Discrete Fourier Transform
The DFT: An Owners' Manual for the Discrete Fourier Transform
Just as a prism separates white light into its component bands of colored light, so the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) is used to separate a signal into its constituent frequencies. Just as a pair of sunglasses reduces the glare of white light, permitting only the softer green light to pass, so the DFT may be used to modify a signal to achieve a...

Business Strategies for the Next-Generation Network (Informa Telecoms & Media)

Carriers and service providers have united around the concept of the Next-Generation Network (NGN). Although leveraging a broad basket of Internet technologies, the NGN is not being planned as the next-generation Internet. In its intention and architecture, it is more accurately described as Broadband-ISDN release 2.0. The NGN is hard to...
