            The term mechatronics was coined in 1969, merging mecha from mechanism and tronics from electronics, to reflect the original idea at the basis of this discipline, i.e., the integration of electrical and mechanical systems into a single device. The spread of this term, and of mech...atronics itself, has been growing in the years, including new aspects and disciplines, like control engineering, computer engineering and communication/information engineering. Nowadays mechatronics has a well-defined and fundamental role, in strict relation with robotics. Drawing a sharp border between mechatronics and robotics is quite impossible, as they share many technologies and objectives. Advanced robots could be defined as mechatronic devices equipped with a smart brain , but there are also up-to-date mechatronic devices, used in tight interaction with humans, that are governed by smart architectures (e.g., for safety purposes). Aim of this book is to offer a wide overview of new research trends and challenges for both mechatronics and robotics, through the contribution of researchers from different institutions, providing their view on specific subjects they consider as hot topics in both fields, with attention to new fields of application, new challenges to the research communities and new technologies available. The reader of this book will enjoy the various contributions, as they have been prepared with actual applications in mind, along a journey from advanced actuators and sensors to human-robot interaction, through robot control, navigation, planning and programming issues. The book presents several state-of-the-art solutions, like multiple-stage actuation to cope with conflicting specification of large motion-spans and ultra-high accuracy, model-based control for high-tech mechatronic systems, modern approaches of software systems engineering to robotics, humanoids for human assistance, etc. The reader can find also new techniques in approaching the design of mechatronic sys

            Domesticated crops are the result of artificial selection for particular phenotypes and, in some case, natural selection for an adaptive trait. Plant traits can be identified through image-based plant phenotyping, a process that was until recently strenous and time-consuming. Int...elligent Image Analysis for Plant Phenotyping reviews information on time-saving techniques using computer vision and imaging technologies. These methodologies provide an automated, non-invasive and scalable mechanism to define and collect plant phenotypes. Beautifully illustrated with numerous color images, the book focuses on phenotypes measured from individual plants under controlled experimental conditions widely available in high throughput systems. Features: Presents methodologies for image processing including data-driven and machine learning techniques for plant phenotyping. Features information on advanced techniques for extracting phenotypes through images and image sequences captured in a variety of modalities. Includes real-world scientific problems, including predicting yield by modeling interactions of data and environmental information. Discusses the challenge of translating images into biologically informative quantitative phenotypes. A practical resource for students, researchers, and practitioners, this book is invaluable for those working in the emerging fields at the intersection of computer vision and plant sciences.

            An unusual supplement to every calculus textbook, Misteaks and How to Find Them before the Teacher Does is popular with students and teachers alike. Teachers love the way it encourages students to truly think about mathematics rather than simply plugging numbers into equations to... crank out answers, and students love the author's straightforward, tongue-in-cheek style. The title of this light-hearted and amusing book might well have been Going Gray in Elementary Calculus and How to Avoid it. Changing the metaphor, Barry has hit the nail on the finger in hundreds of fine examples. --Philip J. Davis, coauthor of The Mathematical Experience.
