All cacac aspects of human and robotic elements within the research activities of HRI
far as they provide insight into how to improve our understanding of the development
effective tools, protocols, and systems to enhance the HRI. For example, significant
research efforts are being devoted to the man-machine interface design which makes it
easier for people to interact with the robot. Researchers are investigating how to
improve the existing interface so that multiple users can interact with multiple risk
program at the same time.
Optimistic assumptions are made by proponents of ideologies such as transhumanism and singularitarianism, which view technological development as generally having beneficial effects for the society and the human condition. In these ideologies, technological development is morally good. Some critics see these ideologies as examples of scientism and techno-utopianism and fear the notion of human enhancement and technological singularity which they support. Some have described Karl Marx as a techno-optimist....
Technology can be viewed as an activity that forms or changes culture. Additionally, technology is the application of math, science, and the arts for the benefit of life as it is known. A modern example is the rise of communication technology, which has lessened barriers to human interaction and, as a result, has helped spawn new subcultures; the rise of cyberculture has, at its basis, the development of the Internet and the computer. Not all technology enhances culture in a creative way; technology can also help facilitate political oppression and war via tools such as guns.
The laceration may initially be difficult to recognize in sonography or may appear
slightly echogenic band. Acute splenic lacerations are seen on contrast-enhanced MDCT
as linear or branching areas of low attenuation with well-defined margins (Figure 5.).
When lacerations extend through the organ capsule, hemoperitoneum results; if the
capsule is intact, a subcapsular hematoma may be demonstrated. With time, the
lacerations decrease in size and number. The margins become less well defined, and the
area becomes isodense compared with normal splenic parenchyma.

This book is a complete study guide that fits the needs of engineers as well as those of newcomers to the field. Its most important feature is the way the author allows students with a little background in mathematics to go through all the topics presented without getting lost or discouraged. The purpose is achieved with a simple but efficient strategy: an easy to follow level is the main body of the book and a lot of examples provide the reader with all the tools necesary to grasp the basics. The higher level material (advanced mathematics) is therefore not indispensable...
Assistive technologies aim to enhance the daily life of people with disabilities,
improving aspects such as mobility, communication, social interaction, manipulation
of several objects and devices, etc. The main importance of assistive technology is
based on the idea of making reachable what is not accessible for many people with
The idea of this book on Sensor fusion and its Applications comes as a response to the immense
interest and strong activities in the field of sensor fusion. Sensor fusion represents a topic of
interest from both theoretical and practical perspectives.
The technology of sensor fusion combines pieces of information coming from different
sources/sensors, resulting in an enhanced overall system performance with respect to
