Preface Errata

  • The objective of this research was to develop a 500-N desktop universal testing machine (UTM) with the capability to find the full-field deformation of a sheet specimen during tensile testing. T ... Read More

  • In this study, an acoustic emission (AE) sensor is used to monitor the hard polishing process of a sapphire wafer. Since the AE sensor is very sensitive, a specially designed polishing head is u ... Read More

  • The imbalance of energy consumption in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) may affect both network lifetime and reliability. Traditionally, the low-energy adaptive clustering hierarchy (LEACH) proto ... Read More

  • Recently, the technology of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been widely used in many disciplines such as remote sensing and control via the Internet in various industries. However, it is still ... Read More

  • Establishing a 3D model of an underground environment for an inspection robot has received significant attention and concern in recent years. RGB and depth images are obtained using a depth came ... Read More

  • In this paper, we present an effective navigation control method for mobile robots in an unknown environment. The proposed behavior manager (BM) switches between two behavioral control patterns, ... Read More

  • GPS has been offering commercial outdoor positioning services. However, it is not suitable for indoor positioning purposes because of the weak satellite signals indoors. Therefore, the ultrasou ... Read More

  • Face recognition, which is a method of identifying a person in a digital image, is widely applied to biometric-based authentication systems. A significant decrease in recognition rate is caused ... Read More
