Direct Adaptive Control Algorithms: Theory and Applications

Direct Adaptive Control Algorithms: Theory and Applications by Howard Kaufman
English | PDF | 1994 | 380 Pages | ISBN : 1468402196 | 22.93 MB

Suitable either as a reference or as a text for a graduate course in adaptive control systems, this book is a self-contained compendium of easily implementable adaptive control algorithms that have been developed and applied by the authors for over 10 years. These algorithms do not require explicit process parameter identification and have been successfully applied to a wide variety of engineering problems including flexible structure control, blood pressure control and robotics. In general, these algorithms are suitable for a wide class of multiple input-output control systems containing significant uncertainty as well as disturbances.

Beginning Game Programming with Pygame Zero: Coding Interactive Games on Raspberry Pi Using Python

Beginning Game Programming with Pygame Zero: Coding Interactive Games on Raspberry Pi Using Python by Stewart Watkiss
English | PDF | 2020 | 358 Pages | ISBN : 1484256492 | 4.35 MB

Make fun games while learning to code. Focused on making games rather than teaching programming theory, in this book you’re more likely to see code on how gravity affects a missiles trajectory instead of the most efficient way to search through data. Even then the code is kept simple as games should be about playability rather than complex physics.

MIPS Assembly Language Programming Using QtSpim

MIPS Assembly Language Programming Using QtSpim by Ed Jorgensen
English | PDF | 2013 | 168 Pages | ISBN : N/A | 2.33 MB

There are a number of excellent, comprehensive, and in-depth texts on MIPS assembly language programming. This is not one of them.
The purpose of this text is to provide a simple and free reference for university level programming and architecture units that include a brief section covering MIPS assembly language programming. The text assumes usage of the QtSpim simulator. An appendix is included that covers the download, installation, and basic use of the QtSpim simulator.

Machine Ethics: From Machine Morals to the Machinery of Morality

Machine Ethics: From Machine Morals to the Machinery of Morality by Luís Moniz Pereira
English | PDF| 2020 | 180 Pages | ISBN : 3030396290 | 2.93 MB

This book offers the first systematic guide to machine ethics, bridging between computer science, social sciences and philosophy. Based on a dialogue between an AI scientist and a novelist philosopher, the book discusses important findings on which moral values machines can be taught and how. In turn, it investigates what kind of artificial intelligence (AI) people do actually want.

Springer Handbook of Robotics, First Edition

Springer Handbook of Robotics by Bruno Siciliano
English | PDF | 2008 | 1627 Pages | ISBN : 3540303014 | 90.30 MB

Reaching for the human frontier, robotics is vigorously engaged in the growing challenges of new emerging domains. Interacting, exploring, and working with humans, the new generation of robots will increasingly touch people and their lives. The credible prospect of practical robots among humans is the result of the scientific endeavour of a half a century of robotic developments that established robotics as a modern scientific discipline.
