This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the technologies and applications of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) systems and wearable computing devices. Ideal for practitioners and students concerned with any application, from gaming to medicine, it brings together comprehensive coverage of both theory and practice, emphasizing leading-edge displays, sensors, and DIY tools that are already available commercially or will be soon. Practical Augmented Reality begins by explaining the mechanics of human sight, hearing and touch, showing how these mechanisms (and their performance ranges) directly dictate the design and use of wearable displays, 3-D audio systems, and tactile/force feedback devices. It presents revealing case studies of real-world applications from gaming, entertainment, science, engineering, aerospace and air traffic control, defense, medicine, architecture, law enforcement, and geophysics. Readers will find clear, easy-to-understand explanations, photos, and illustrations of devices including Oculus (Facebook) Rift, Sony Morpheus, Google Glass, and many more. Functional diagrams clearly explain how each device operates, and link directly to relevant theoretical and practical content. Practical Augmented Reality thoroughly considers human factors, including sense and motor physiology constraints; resolution and realism; fields of view, angles, and distortion; latency and time display; flicker vertigo, phobia effects, and motion sickness. It concludes by assessing both the legal and societal implications of new and emerging AR, VR, and wearable technologies.
Apply a methodology and practical solutions for monitoring the behavior of the Internet of Things (IoT), industrial control systems (ICS), and other critical network devices with the inexpensive Raspberry Pi. With this book, you will master passive monitoring and detection of aberrant behavior, and learn how to generate early indications and warning of attacks targeting IoT, ICS, and other critical network resources. Defending IoT Infrastructures with the Raspberry Pi provides techniques and scripts for the discovery of dangerous data leakage events emanating from IoT devices. Using Raspbian Linux and specialized Python scripts, the book walks through the steps necessary to monitor, detect, and respond to attacks targeting IoT devices. There are several books that cover IoT, IoT security, Raspberry Pi, and Python separately, but this book is the first of its kind to put them all together. It takes a practical approach, providing an entry point and level playing field for a wide range of individuals, small companies, researchers, academics, students, and hobbyists to participate. What You´ll Learn Create a secure, operational Raspberry Pi IoT sensor Configure and train the sensor using ´´normal´´ IoT behavior Establish analytics for detecting aberrant activities Generate real-time alerts to preempt attacks Identify and report data-leakage events originating from IoT devices Develop custom Python applications for cybersecurity Who This Book Is For Cybersecurity specialists, professors teaching in undergraduate and graduate programs in cybersecurity, students in cybersecurity and computer science programs, software developers and engineers developing new cybersecurity defenses, incident response teams, software developers and engineers in general, and hobbyists wanting to expand the application of Raspberry Pi into both IoT and cybersecurity
This book constitutes the proceedings of the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Mobile Services, AIMS 2018, held as part of SCF 2018, in Seattle, WA, USA, in June 2018. The 20 papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The papers cover different aspects of mobile services from business management to computing systems, algorithms and applications. They promote technological technological innovations in research and development of mobile services, including, but not limited to, wireless and sensor networks, mobile and wearable computing, mobile enterprise and eCommerce, ubiquitous collaborative and social services, machine-to-machine and Internet-of-things, clouds, cyber-physical integration, and big data analytics for mobility-enabled services
Interested in developing embedded systems? Since they don´t tolerate inefficiency, these systems require a disciplined approach to programming. This easy-to-read guide helps you cultivate a host of good development practices, based on classic software design patterns and new patterns unique to embedded programming. Learn how to build system architecture for processors, not operating systems, and discover specific techniques for dealing with hardware difficulties and manufacturing requirements. Written by an expert who´s created embedded systems ranging from urban surveillance and DNA scanners to children´s toys, this book is ideal for intermediate and experienced programmers, no matter what platform you use. Optimize your system to reduce cost and increase performance Develop an architecture that makes your software robust in resource-constrained environments Explore sensors, motors, and other I/O devices Do more with less: reduce RAM consumption, code space, processor cycles, and power consumption Learn how to update embedded code directly in the processor Discover how to implement complex mathematics on small processors Understand what interviewers look for when you apply for an embedded systems job ´´Making Embedded Systems is the book for a C programmer who wants to enter the fun (and lucrative) world of embedded systems. It´s very well written - entertaining, even - and filled with clear illustrations.´´ - Jack Ganssle, author and embedded system expert.

Depuis ces deux dernières décennies, une nouvelle technologie sans fil appelée Réseau de Capteur Sans Fil (RCSF) résultant d´une fusion entre les systèmes embarqués et les communications sans fil a vu le jour. Un RCSF (´´WSN : Wireless Sensor Network´´) est un réseau Ad hoc composé d´un grand nombre de noeuds qui sont des capteurs intelligents pouvant collecter et envoyer des données à distance. Nous présentons la conception d´un système basé sur la technologie des RCSF pour la collecte en temps réel et la supervision de la qualité de l´eau. En effet, l´action de l´homme sur l´écosystème conduit à un effet toxique pour le milieu. Ce qui pollue la qualité de l´eau en influençant le développement des maladies aquatiques. Le système conçu s´est basé sur un système existant traitant les paramètres de l´eau pour la veille épidémiologie de la bilharziose. Nous avons effectué une amélioration du système actuel tout en répondant aux attentes en terme de porté, de d´autonomie d´énergie et de coût. Une plateforme d´exploitation est implémentée permettant une visualisation des données et exportation des données mais aussi un système d´alerte est déployé pour prévenir en cas de contamination.
Ainda hoje, as técnicas existentes para a manipulação de slides se apresentam restritas. Em geral, ocorre a interrupção frequente da apresentação para que o apresentador se desloque ao computador para o controle dos slides. Este livro apresenta a construção de um sistema de baixo custo que possibilita o controle de apresentações de slides em projetores multimídia por meio da visão computacional e processamento digital de imagens. O aplicativo constitui basicamente de duas etapas: uma de calibração em que a região da área de projeção que o usuário pode interagir é detectada e outra que diz respeito à apresentação. O controle ocorre a partir de um sistema de rastreamento que gera ações na apresentação a partir da posição da mão do apresentador. Uma webcam é utilizada como um sensor para a captura, em tempo real, de imagens da apresentação. Estas imagens passam por algoritmos e técnicas de visão computacional e processamento digital de imagens para que seja possível detectar alterações na cena. Quando alterações são detectadas, comandos são executados sobre os slides.
