This guide to the Middle Level waterways that lie between the River Great Ouse and River Nene, including the main link route via March and several other alternatives, gives all the information needed for anyone planning to navigate the area. Shaped by human ingenuity and home to a rich variety of nature, the serene and stunning landscapes of the Fenland waterways are more remote than most of the rest of the country's network of navigable inland waters. In this lies their beauty and much of their attraction. However, they also have sufficient access to facilities. Readers will find a wealth of information about moorings, facilities and services, as well as features of interest to canoeists, paddleboarders, walkers and other users of the waterways. It includes detailed mapping for each section of the rivers as well as overview plans. Imray's popular inland waterways guides are being revised with experienced boat-owners and navigators from the Inland Waterways Association. With a completely new design and maps that have been rescaled and reoriented to make them more user-friendly, this new Fenland Waterways guide has been written by Chris Howes, Deputy National Chairman, Eastern Region Chairman and Peterborough Branch Chairman of the IWA. Chris is a knowledgeable enthusiast for the area and his navigation notes are enriched with narrative and photographs, highlighting numerous points of interest.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is undoubtedly playing an increasingly significant role in automobile technology. In fact, cars inhabit one of just a few domains where you will find many AI innovations packed into a single product. AI for Cars provides a brief guided tour through many different AI landscapes including robotics, image and speech processing, recommender systems and onto deep learning, all within the automobile world. From pedestrian detection to driver monitoring to recommendation engines, the book discusses the background, research and progress thousands of talented engineers and researchers have achieved thus far, and their plans to deploy this life-saving technology all over the world.
The general theme of the CE2009 Conference is the recognised requirement for advancements in Concurrent Engineering (CE) with a global perspective for competitive enterprise, economy and ecology. CE appeared in the '80s as the concept of parallel performing engineering design activities and the integration of all related processes. This concept is based on the general assumption that different components of the product life cycle should be considered together and relatively early. The main goal of CE is to make processes more efficient and more resistant to errors.
Since then the whole CE approach has evolved into different forms with different names and has become omnipresent. The industrial presence of CE differs from well established corporation implementations to SME applications. The last twenty years have brought many changes to the organization of product design and manufacturing: engineers have developed narrower specializations; engineers have developed a global presence; engineers work in firms which are final producers or suppliers; sometimes firms create alliances; engineers cooperate and collaborate; and they use different methods and tools to support their engineering activities. As a result the CE approach supports engineers in many ways.
The role of information systems in CE has always been treated as very important. First methodologies and tools were concentrated on offering the possibility to contact people and processes, to make the right information and knowledge available at the right time. The presence of computer tools in CE is treated as standard.
If one looks now at what is going on and at how many different issues are important in design, manufacturing, supply, distribution, etc., one will understand why the context of CE is so rich and so complicated, why there are so many CE specializations and why the main topic of the CE2009 Conference is of great relevance. The plurality of CE specializations mentioned above was reflected in the following CE2009 Conference tracks: Systems Engineering, PLM, Advanced Manufacture, Product Design, Mass Customization, Lean Thinking, Design for Sustainability, Customer Value, Environmental Impact, Knowledge Engineering, SCM, Concurrent System Architecturing, Collaborative Engineering, Web Technologies, Standards, Digital Manufacture, Service Solutions, Purchasing/Procurement, Emotion Engineering. Apart from the above tracks the conference also has seven special sessions in RFID, Collaborative Product Development, Multi-disciplinary Design and Optimization, Design Knowledge Utilization, Competitive Supply Chain Performance, Value Engineering, and Competitive Design.
The proceedings contain 94 papers, demonstrating the multitude of different perspectives contained in this volume. There are papers which are theoretic and conceptual, as well as papers which have very strong industrial roots. There are also very detailed, highly specialized paper, which are closely linked to specific industrial case studies. The reader will also find papers which are based on real processes, but which operate on abstract models and which offer a bridge between industrial reality and academic research.
CE does not develop equally in each area; the direction of development depends on many factors. The content of this volume reflects the variety of issues in today's CE methods and phenomena; consequently, readers will be able to build their own view of the present problems and methods involved in CE.
This research review discusses the most significant papers to have been published over the past fifteen years on the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) devices to measure person and vehicle travel. The carefully selected papers track developments in the use of GPS devices to record travel and document some of the latest applications in which GPS is starting to replace conventional self-report surveys.

Presenting the established principles underpinning space robotics (conservation of momentum and energy, stability) with a thorough and modern approach, chapters build from general physical foundations through an extensive treatment of kinematics of multi-body systems, and then to conservation principles in dynamics. The latter part of the book focuses on real-life applications related to space systems. Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous solved examples, illustrative applications and MATLAB, the author includes: an explanation of basic space mechanics and the dynamics of space vehicles; a rigorous treatment of conservation and variational principles in dynamics and in control theory that can be applied to a range of space vehicles and robotic systems; and a systematic presentation of the application of dynamics and control theory to real spacecraft systems.
