              This book supports the readers in the development of remotely operated vehicle (ROV) pilot training simulator by exploiting open source or free gaming software and the importance of using established and widely available games design techniques in providing engaging scenarios for... the ROV training developers and trainees. There is no such book to guide the users to create an open-source virtual simulator for pilot training in the marine and offshore industry. The book can be used as a reference book for undergraduate and postgraduate, engineers, researchers, and lecturers in VR simulation using UnityTM as the leading software. Some of the key features of the book include: * Step-by-step procedures in development ROV pilot training simulator. * Use of open-source software, UnityTM that is freely available to all readers. * The codes used in the book are self-sufficient as there are no hidden codes from readers.

              Hybrid Encryption Algorithm over Wireless Communication Channels

              Transmission of images and videos is a vital part of today's communication systems. As such, an optimum encryption scheme and an optimum modulation method is important. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is an attractive multicarrier transmission technique for wide...band communications, because it effectively transforms the frequency selective fading channel into a flat fading channel. Hence, OFDM provides greater immunity to multipath fading and impulsive noise, and eliminates the need for complicated equalizers. However, OFDM communication systems suffer from fading effects, high sensitivity to carrier frequency offsets and phase noise. In this book, we present a study for two different families of encryption schemes; permutation based schemes and diffusion based schemes. The objective of this study is to select the better suited scheme for encrypted image transmission over communication systems. Encryption and decryption quality metrics are used in the comparisonpresented. Two modifications are presented in this thesis in the permutation and diffusion algorithms to enhance their properties. In the proposed hybrid encryption framework, we need to achieve both diffusion and permutation in the encrypted 3D images. To achieve this, the author uses chaotic or RC6 or AES technique in a pre-processing step to achieve the permutation and diffusion. The Rubik's cube is used afterwards to achieve a greater number of permutations. The book then reviews its sensitivity to the wireless channel impairments, and the effect of channel equalization on the received 3D images quality.

              R Markdown is a powerful tool for combining analysis and reporting into the single document in the spirit of literate programming and reproducible research. Since the birth of the rmarkdown package in early 2014, R Markdown has grown substantially from a package that supports a f...ew output formats (such as HTML, PDF, and Word) to an extensive and diverse ecosystem that enables the creation of books, blogs, scientific articles, websites, and more. Due to its rapid success, this ecosystem is hard to learn completely meaning that R Markdown users, from novices to advanced users, likely do not know all that these packages have to offer. The R Markdown Cookbook confronts this gap by showcasing short, practical examples of wide-ranging tips and tricks to get the most out of these tools. After reading this book, you will learn how to: Enhance your R Markdown content with diagrams, citations, and dynamically generated text Streamline your workflow with child documents, code chunk references, and caching Control the formatting and layout with Pandoc markdown syntax or by writing custom HTML and LaTeX templates Utilize chunk options and hooks to fine-tune how your code is processed Switch between different language engineers to seamlessly incorporate python, D3, and more into your analysis
