This monograph originates from my work on the HAPTEX project. In - cember 2004 Prof. Franz-Erich Wolter, the head of the Institute of Man- Machine Communication of the Leibniz Universit. at Hannover, o?ered me the opportunity to participate in that EU funded project. Being a mat- matician I had only very little experience in the ?eld of haptic simulation in those days, but Prof. Wolter trusted in my ability to become acquainted with new ?elds of research in a very short time. I am still thankful for the con?dence he has shown me. Since then I indeed learned and found out a lot. With this monograph I try to pass on the knowledge I gained. Having a reader in mind who-like me at the beginning of the project-has no background in psychophysics, neurophysiologyortextileengineeringIwillprovidethenecessarybasics.The skilled reader may safely skip these parts. Nevertheless I presume some basic knowledge in mathematics. I hope that this thesis might help a newcomer to discover the fascinating ?eld of tactile simulation. This workwouldnot havebeen possible without the funding of the project "HAPtic sensing of virtual TEXtiles" (HAPTEX) under the Sixth Fra- work Programme (FP6) of the European Union (Contract No. IST-6549).

Augmented (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies are increasingly being used in manufacturing processes. These use real and simulated objects to create a simulated environment that can be used to enhance the design and manufacturing processes.

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Applications in Manufacturing is written by experts from the world s leading institutions working in virtual manufacturing and gives the state of the art of the field.

Features:

- Chapters covering the state of the art in VR and AR technology and how these technologies can be applied to manufacturing.

- The latest findings in key areas of AR and VR application to manufacturing.

- The results of recent cross-disciplinary research projects in the US and Europe showing application solutions of AR and VR technology in real industrial settings.

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Applications in Manufacturing will be of interest to all engineers wishing to keep up-to-date with technologies that have the potential to revolutionize manufacturing processes over the next few years.

Virtual Anthropology

RRP $299.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

This is the first textbook of Virtual Anthropology, the new science that combines elements from fields as diverse as anthropology, medicine, statistics, computing, scientific visualization, and industrial design. The book is intended for students in any of these or nearby fields within biology, medicine, or engineering and for teachers, journalists, and all others who will enjoy the many examples from our real biological world. After a general introduction to the field and an overview, the book is organized around six themes conveyed in more than 300 pages of text accompanied by hundreds of carefully annotated images: medical imaging and 3D digitising techniques, electronic preparation of individual specimens, analysis of complex forms in space one or many at a time, reconstruction of forms that are partly missing or damaged, production of real objects from virtual models, and, finally, thoughts about data accessibility and sharing and the implications of all this for the future of anthropology. The authors' emphasis is not on technical details but rather on step-by-step explanations of the wealth of examples included here, from brain evolution to surgical planning, always in light of the relevance of these approaches to science and to society. All readers are encouraged to try out the techniques on their own using the tools and data included in the Online Extra Materials resource.


The Reality Of Human Life

RRP $70.95

The Universe goes round and round, as does the Earth and Life on it! What is the reality behind the ever-changing activities within each of these?

The eight essays included in "The Reality of Human Life" present an overall vision of the diversity of human life. Based upon author Bedrich Hettich's life experiences and observations, this collection offers a modern perception of the invisible existence of God, a Spirit revealed behind the reality of the power existing throughout the Universe right down to planet Earth in it with the diversity of human life on it. These essays address the questions of why and how we got here, what we are supposed to do while we are here, and what happens to us when we die.

The topics of these essays relate human activities directly to God, serving as an extension of the essays in Hettich's first collection, "The Reality of God in the Universe." Human life creates its own diversity, including the diversity of integration with other life forms that still exist on the Earth. These essays seek to build an understanding of how this diversity relates to the process by which we learn, collectively and individually, to work and live together in harmony referred to as the tuning of human life.
