Book Description :

FSR, the International Conference on Field and Service Robotics, is a robotics Symposium which has established over the past ten years the latest research and practical results towards the use of field and service robotics in the community with particular focus on proven technology. The first meeting was held in Canberra, Australia, in 1997. Since then the meeting has been held every two years in the pattern Asia, America, Europe. Field robots are non-factory robots, typically mobile, that operate in complex and dynamic environments; on the ground (of earth or planets), under the ground, underwater, in the air or in space. Service robots are those that work closely with humans to help them with their lives. This book present the results of the ninth edition of Field and Service Robotics, FSR13, held in Brisbane, Australia on 9th-11th December 2013. The conference provided a forum for researchers, professionals and robot manufactures to exchange up-to-date technical knowledge and experience. This book offers a collection of a broad range of topics including: Underwater Robots and Systems, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles technologies and applications, Agriculture, Space, Search and Rescue and Domestic Robotics, Robotic Vision, Mapping and Recognition.

Book Description :

FSR, the International Conference on Field and Service Robotics, is the leading single track conference of robotics for field and service applications. This book presents the results of FSR2012, the eighth conference of Field and Service Robotics, which was originally planned for 2011 with the venue of Matsushima in Tohoku region of Japan. However, on March 11, 2011, a magnitude M9.0 earthquake occurred off the Pacific coast of Tohoku, and a large-scale disaster was caused by the Tsunami which resulted, therefore the conference was postponed by one year to July, 2012. In fact, this earthquake raised issues concerning the contribution of field and service robotics technology to emergency scenarios. A number of precious lessons were learned from operation of robots in the resulting, very real and challenging, disaster environments. Up-to-date study on disaster response, relief and recovery was then featured in the conference. This book offers 43 papers on a broad range of topics including: Disaster Response, Service/Entertainment Robots, Inspection/Maintenance Robots, Mobile Robot Navigation, Agricultural Robots, Robots for Excavation, Planetary Exploration, Large Area Mapping, SLAM for Outdoor Robots, and Elemental Technology for Mobile Robots.

In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the association and the 10th anniversary of the journal, we will hold the following activities this year. 1. Continue to convene the fourth International Conference Symposium of 2013 on Construction Machinery and Vehicle Engineering Research Progress. 2. Continue to convene the fifth National Mechanical Engineering Doctoral Forum. This forum will be held in Xuzhou and the time is from August 20 to August 24 in 2013. 3. The highlevel expert forum will be held during Changsha Engineering Machinery Parts Expo. A dialogue will be taken on the issues of industry scientific innovation, accessories, testing and quality among universities, research institutes and enterprises. 4. The celebrations about the 20th anniversary of the association and the 10th anniversary of the journal will be conducted in Shanghai. The coun cil of the new editorial board and the executive director is convened for summing up the work of the association since it was founded 20 years ago and the work of the journal since it was founded 10 years ago, and planning for the future development. This International Conference is held in the circumstance of international economic crisis and domestic industrial structure adjustment. In the past year, sales market of construction machinery has been subjected to a certain shocks, and the enterprises have en countered a certain difficulties. For the future, however, I believe that such difficulties are temporary, and the prospect is bright. The construction machinery is to serve the mining and state infrastructure construction, and for China, along with most c ountries in the world which are developing countries, the infrastructure construction is still a significant part in the course of development, and the sound infrastructure will promote the development of their economies, even these countries which are in the leading position in economy development also attach great importance to the improvement of infrastructure. Therefore, construction machinery is indispensable and has a rigid demand. Currently, the international competition has not been only limited to terrestrial, since the possession of terrestrial was a foregone conclusion, but there will be more

Book Description :

Agroforestry has significantly impacted our forests, but an often-overlooked issue is the effect of harvesting on soils and root systems. Soil and Root Damage in Forestry explains how soil and roots might be damaged through logging activities or silvicultural activities, how resulting root diseases impact the root and soil systems, and the impacts of chemical applications on the soil and root system. This book goes beyond the ‘why’ to also provide methods to reduce the impacts of machines on soils and offers solutions to minimize the impacts of machines on soils. Soil and Root Damage in Forestry serves as a valuable resource not only for those already working in soil science and forest ecology, but also provides insights for advanced students seeking an entrance to the "hidden half" of the planet. Combines damages to soil and roots in one volume for the first time Includes calculations related to soil strength providing soil scientists and ecologists with methods to estimate root damage Provides suggestions on how to reduce the impact of harvesting on soil and root systems

Book Description :

Bekker's Derived Terramechanics Model (BDTM) is an analytical tool for evaluating vehicle off-road mobility. BDTM has been developed using Bekker's equations for vehicle soil interactions. He developed the bevameter technique to measure mechanical strength characteristics for many soil and snow conditions. This procedure uses seven parameters to describe soil conditions, which differs from the conventional single parameter vehicle cone index methodology used by the NATO Reference Mobility Model (NRMM). NRMM uses the cone penetrometer technique to experimentally measure fine- grained soil mechanical characteristics. BDTM is in a spreadsheet format, and its primary purpose is to compare mobility characteristics for robotic track and wheeled vehicles under different terrain conditions. Bekker's model is a simple, linear one degree-of-freedom (1-DOF) model, which assumes that in a perfectly cohesive soil (i.e. clay), soil thrust is only a function of contact surface area. The model also assumes that for a perfectly cohesionless or frictional soil (i.e. dry sand), soil thrust is a function of vehicular weight[1]. This paper attempts to compare the mobility characteristics of wheeled vs. track vehicles for different size, weight and terrain conditions.
