Physical stochastic disturbances, such as wind, often affect the motion of robots that perform complex tasks in real-world conditions. These disturbances pose a control challenge because resulting drift induces uncertainty and changes in the robot's speed and direction. This paper presents an online control policy based on supervised machine learning, Least Squares Axial Sum Policy Approximation (LSAPA), that generates trajectories ...

  • Performance of OLEDs

    Performance of OLED devices is very important not only in scientific studies but also in applications to practical devices and commercial products. While various characteristics and parameters of OLED devices have already been described in the previous chapters, this chapter explains typical characteristics and parameters of OLED devices and describes current performances of OLEDs. These characteristics are I¿¿¿V¿¿¿L characteristics, efficiencies, and lifetimes. In addition, this chapter describes the temperature elevation phenomenon in OLED devices, which is also important in practical applications because such temperature elevation is closely related to lifetime.


    This chapter considers the analysis and characterization of satellite orbits based on Newton's laws of motion, his law of universal gravitation, and Kepler's laws of planetary motion. It applies these laws to the Earth's elliptical satellite orbits with the Earth at one focus; the circular orbit being a special case. The emphasis is on characterizing communication links between the Earth and various satellites and crosslinks between satellites. In addition to elliptical satellite orbits, the results also apply to ballistic missile trajectories. The chapter evaluates the range, range‐rate (velocity), and acceleration along the line of sight (LOS) between a satellite and ground station and characterizes the range, Doppler, and Doppler rate based on the results. The Earth stations are defined in terms of their latitude and longitude with respect to the Earth‐centered Earth‐fixed coordinate system. The location of a satellite in its orbital is determined using the six orbital parameters.

  • Energy-Efficient Storage Systems for Data Centers

  • Greening Mobile Networks via Optimizing the Efficiency of Content Delivery

It provides content delivery acceleration solutions tailored for web content delivery and multimedia delivery. For web content delivery acceleration, the chapter overviews existing web content delivery systems and summarize their features. For multimedia delivery acceleration, it focuses on accelerating HTTP¿¿¿based adaptive streaming while briefly reviewing other multimedia delivery acceleration solutions. The chapter presents a timely survey on content delivery acceleration in mobile networks, and provides a comprehensive reference for further research in this field.


    This chapter provides a basic and contextual representation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Grid systems integration requirements and why the IoTs must leverage data standards to effectively address the unique challenges faced by the current and next‐generation grid. The IoTs that support Smart Grid must achieve end‐to‐end interoperability and security. When systems with diverse characteristics interact within the Smart Grid, the IoTs must possess basic ability to process application‐level messages. The Internet‐enabled network of connected devices supports Smart Grid applications to either improve existing practices or offer emerging technologies and services for the Smart Grid. Interoperability standards are key for "seamless communications" and "ubiquity" of IoT objects. The application domain standards for IoT data communications have the potential to address the diversity in distributed energy resources (DER), distributed generation (DG), distribution systems, and supporting markets and operations for electricity consumers.

  • Collision Detection with Navigation Meshes

    This chapter presents a technique to extend the navigation meshes generated using the adaptive space-filling volume (ASFV) algorithms to support and improve the speed of collision queries for objects present in the game world. This is done by providing four algorithms to extend navigation meshes to allow for object management (insert, update, remove, and find collidable objects). By utilizing a navigation mesh in this manner, a game or simulation developer is able to reduce the run time expenses in memory and CPU cycles of creating and maintaining one data structure for collision detection and another structure for agent navigation. The chapter shows experimentally that the navigation mesh actually performs better than the commonly used k-d tree data structures in all types of collision across multiple game environments. Overall, the navigation mesh is an excellent general spatial data structure and it is ready for uses going beyond that of agent navigation.

  • Conclusions and Future Work

    This chapter presents the conclusions described in the book related to the fusion of hard control strategies such as proportional integral‐derivative (PID), optimal, adaptive, and soft control strategies such as adaptive neuro‐fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), genetic algorithms (GA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), for a robotic or prosthetic hand. Chapter 2 of the book addressed the forward kinematics, inverse kinematics, and differential kinematics models of a serial n revolute‐joint planar two‐link thumb, and three‐link index finger. The fingertip (end‐effector) positions of each finger were derived by forward kinematics. Chapter 3 of the book described the dynamic equations of hand motion successfully derived via Lagrangian approach for two‐link thumb and three‐link fingers using the mathematical model of the actuator by using direct current (DC) motor and mechanical gears.

  • THz Electronics

    Several key topics in THz electronics are discussed. We describe the operating principles, limitations, and state-of-the-art of resonant-tunnelling diodes (RTDs) and THz RTD oscillators. Furthermore, THz fundamental or sub-harmonic flip-chip Schottky diode mixer configurations are described. Different measurement techniques are commented and their properties are outlined. The chapter also relates the use of advanced mixer configurations. Fabrication technologies for Schottky-diode based structures for THz wave applications are included together with the low-barrier Schottky diode characterization for millimeter-wave detector design. Finally, LNAs for sub-millimeter waves are discussed, including up-to-date design approaches and resulting performance, with emphasis on the necessary technological modification to extend MMIC approaches toward the THz region.

  • Graphical Performance Analysis

    This chapter describes some graphical tools which are used for analyzing flight vehicle performance either along a trajectory or at fixed flight conditions. They provide a visual interpretation of vehicle performance and stability in the Mach versus alpha operational range, maneuverability in different directions, and they assess the control authority of the effector system against wind-shear disturbances. They are implemented in the Flixan program. The chapter describes four different types of vector diagrams that are used to address different aspects of static controllability. Aero uncertainties are generated by the aero group for each individual control surface separately. The chapter shows how to calculate the uncertainty rectangles in the control partial vector diagrams and also in the maximum control moment/force vector diagrams from the uncertainties in the individual aerosurface derivatives provided by the aero group.

  • Significance of Automated Driving in Japan

    This chapter discusses the issues specific to the automated driving systems and the near‐future market introduction, including a short history and the expected benefits of automated driving systems, and the significance of automated driving systems of road vehicles in Japan. Japan has a long history in the research and development of automated driving systems of not only passenger cars but also heavy trucks, transit buses, and small low‐speed vehicles. Fully automated vehicles have technological, legal, and institutional issues to overcome; therefore, the safety validation of fully automated vehicles will require tremendously long‐distance driving tests, which must be undertaken during almost all kinds of weather. The chapter discusses the introduction of automated truck platoons and automated small, low‐speed vehicles for vulnerable road users, that is, after an introduction is given about the population issues in Japan. Therefore, automation in these types of vehicles is very necessary.
