Abstract Neural architectures have been proposed to navigate mobile robots within several environment definitions. In this paper a new neural modular constructive approach to navigate mobile robots in unknown environments is presented. The problem, in its basic form, consists of deﬁning and executing a trajectory to a predeﬁned goal while avoiding all obstacles, in an unknown environment. Some crucial issues arise when trying to solve this problem, such as an overﬂow of sensorial information and conﬂicting objectives.
The Mobile Detection Assessment and Response System, Exterior (MDARS-E) provides an automated robotic security capability for storage yards, petroleum tank farms, rail yards, and arsenals. The system includes multiple supervised-autonomous platforms equipped with intrusion detection, barrier assessment, and inventory assessment subsystems commanded from an integrated control station. The MDARS-E Intrusion Detection System consists of a motion sensor suite which is selectively enabled while the vehicle is momentarily halted in execution of pre-defined but randomly executed patrols.
In 1896, Karl Benz was granted a patent for his design of the first engine with horizontally opposed pistons. His design created an engine in which the corresponding pistons move in horizontal cylinders and reach top dead center simultaneously, thus automatically balancing each other with respect to their individual momentum. Engines of this design are often referred to as flat engines because of their shape and lower profile.
Decoding algorithm is a crucial part in statistical machine translation. We describe a stack decoding algorithm in this paper. We present the hypothesis scoring method and the heuristics used in our algorithm. We report several techniques deployed to improve the performance of the decoder. We also introduce a simplified model to moderate the sparse data problem and to speed up the decoding process. We evaluate and compare these techniques/models in our statistical machine translation system.
Diffusion is the transport of matter from one point to another by thermal
motion of atoms or molecules. It is relatively fast in gases, slow in liquids, and
very slow in solids. Diffusion plays a key rˆole in many processes as diverse as
intermixing of gases and liquids, permeation of atoms or molecules through
membranes, evaporation of liquids, drying of timber, doping silicon wafers to
make semiconductor devices, and transport of thermal neutrons in nuclear
The Watt steam engine was the first type of steam engine to make use of steam at a pressure just above atmospheric to drive the piston helped by a partial vacuum. Improving on the design of the 1712 Newcomen steam engine, the Watt steam engine, developed sporadically from 1763 to 1775, was a great step in the development of the steam engine. Offering a dramatic increase in fuel efficiency, James Watt's design became synonymous with steam engines, due in no small part to his business partner, Matthew Boulton.

Chapter 8 introduced the Markowitz portfolio selection model, which shows how to obtain the maximum return possible for any level of portfolio risk. This chapter a simplifying assumption that at once eases our computational burden and offers significant new insights into the nature of systematic risk versus firm-specific risk. This abstraction is the notion of an “index model,” specifying the process by which security returns are generated.
