Optimizing Small Multi Rotor Unmanned Aircraft Book Review:

This design guide was written to capture the author’s practical experience of designing, building and testing multi-rotor drone systems over the past decade. The lack of one single source of useful information meant that the past 10 years has been a steep learning curve, a lot of self-tuition and many trial and error tests. Lessons learnt the hard way are not always the best way to learn. This book will be useful for the amateur drone pilot who wants to build their own system from first principles, as well as the academic researcher investigating novel design concepts and future drone applications.

Electromagnetic Non-destructive Evaluation (ENDE) is an invaluable, non-invasive diagnostic tool for the inspection, testing, evaluation and characterization of materials and structures. It has now become indispensible in a number of diverse fields ranging from biomedics to many branches of industry and engineering. This book presents the proceedings of the 24th International Workshop on Electromagnetic Nondestructive Evaluation, held in Chengdu, China from 11 - 14 September 2019. The 38 peer-reviewed and extended contributions included here were selected from 45 original submissions, and are divided into 7 sections: eddy current testing and evaluation; advanced sensors; analytical and numerical modeling; material characterization; inverse problem and signal processing; artificial intelligence in ENDE; and industrial applications of ENDE. The papers cover recent studies concerning the progress and application of electromagnetic (EM) fields in the non-destructive examination of materials and structures, and topics covered include evaluations at a micro-structural level, such as correlating the magnetic properties of a material with its grain structure, and a macroscopic level, such as techniques and applications for EM NDT&E. Recent developments and emerging materials such as advanced EM sensors, multi-physics NDT&E, intelligent data management and maintaining the integrity of structures are also explored. The book provides a current overview of developments in ENDE, and will be of interest to all those working in the field.

Man Machine Interactions 3 Book Review:

Man-Machine Interaction is an interdisciplinary field of research that covers many aspects of science focused on a human and machine in conjunction. Basic goal of the study is to improve and invent new ways of communication between users and computers, and many different subjects are involved to reach the long-term research objective of an intuitive, natural and multimodal way of interaction with machines. The rapid evolution of the methods by which humans interact with computers is observed nowadays and new approaches allow using computing technologies to support people on the daily basis, making computers more usable and receptive to the user's needs. This monograph is the third edition in the series and presents important ideas, current trends and innovations in the man-machine interactions area. The aim of this book is to introduce not only hardware and software interfacing concepts, but also to give insights into the related theoretical background. Reader is provided with a compilation of high-quality original papers covering a wide scope of research topics divided into eleven sections, namely: human-computer interactions, robot control, embedded and navigation systems, bio data analysis and mining, biomedical signal processing, image and sound processing, decision support and expert systems, rough and fuzzy systems, pattern recognition, algorithms and optimization, computer networks and mobile technologies and data management systems.

Applications of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Book Review:

Advances in high spatial resolution mapping capabilities and the new rules established by the Federal Aviation Administration in the United States for the operation of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) have provided new opportunities to acquire aerial data at a lower cost and more safely versus other methods. A similar opening of the skies for sUAS applications is being allowed in countries across the world. Also, sUAS can access hazardous or inaccessible areas during disaster events and provide rapid response when needed. Applications of Small Unmanned Aircraft systems: Best Practices and Case Studies is the first book that brings together the best practices of sUAS applied to a broad range of issues in high spatial resolution mapping projects. Very few sUAS pilots have the knowledge of how the collected imagery is processed into value added mapping products that have commercial and/or academic import. Since the field of sUAS applications is just a few years old, this book covers the need for a compendium of case studies to guide the planning, data collection, and most importantly data processing and map error issues, with the range of sensors available to the user community. Written by experienced academics and professionals, this book serves as a guide on how to formulate sUAS based projects, from choice of a sUAS, flight planning for a particular application, sensors and data acquisition, data processing software, mapping software and use of the high spatial resolution maps produced for particular types of geospatial modeling. Features: Focus on sUAS based data acquisition and processing into map products Broad range of case studies by highly experienced academics Practical guidance on sUAS hardware, sensors, and software utilized Compilation of workflow insights from expert professors and professionals Relevant to academia, government, and industry Positional and thematic map accuracy, UAS curriculum development and workflow replicability issues This book would be an excellent text for upper-level undergraduate to graduate level sUAS mapping application courses. It is also invaluable as a reference for educators designing sUAS based curriculum as well as for potential sUAS users to assess the scope of mapping projects that can be done with this technology.

Remote Sensing Book Review:

Remote sensing has undergone profound changes over the past two decades as GPS, GIS, and sensor advances have significantly expanded the user community and availability of images. New tools, such as automation, cloud-based services, drones, and artificial intelligence, continue to expand and enhance the discipline. Along with comprehensive coverage and clarity, Sabins and Ellis establish a solid foundation for the insightful use of remote sensing with an emphasis on principles and a focus on sensor technology and image acquisition. The Fourth Edition presents a valuable discussion of the growing and permeating use of technologies such as drones and manned aircraft imaging, DEMs, and lidar. The authors explain the scientific and societal impacts of remote sensing, review digital image processing and GIS, provide case histories from areas around the globe, and describe practical applications of remote sensing to the environment, renewable and nonrenewable resources, land use/land cover, natural hazards, and climate change. • Remote Sensing Digital Database includes 27 examples of satellite and airborne imagery that can be used to jumpstart labs and class projects. The database includes descriptions, georeferenced images, DEMs, maps, and metadata. Users can display, process, and interpret images with open-source and commercial image processing and GIS software. • Flexible, revealing, and instructive, the Digital Image Processing Lab Manual provides 12 step-by-step exercises on the following topics: an introduction to ENVI, Landsat multispectral processing, image processing, band ratios and principal components, georeferencing, DEMs and lidar, IHS and image sharpening, unsupervised classification, supervised classification, hyperspectral, and change detection and radar. • Introductory and instructional videos describe and guide users on ways to access and utilize the Remote Sensing Digital Database and the Digital Image Processing Lab Manual. • Answer Keys are available for instructors for questions in the text as well as the Digital Image Processing Lab Manual.

Prediction and Recognition of Piracy Efforts Using Collaborative Human Centric Information Systems Book Review:

Maritime piracy is the cause of widespread international concern, and the number of pirate attacks has increased substantially in recent years. Many commercial vessels are inherently vulnerable to attack because of their size and relative slowness, and technological improvements have resulted in smaller crews on large vessels, whilst the absence of enforcement agencies in international waters has served only to make pirates more daring. Collaborative human-centric information support systems can significantly improve the ability of every nation to predict and prevent pirate attacks, or to recognize the nature and size of an
