Kernel methods have long been established as effective techniques in the framework of machine learning and pattern recognition, and have now become the standard approach to many remote sensing applications. With algorithms that combine statistics and geometry, kernel methods have proven successful across many different domains related to the analysis of images of the Earth acquired from airborne and satellite sensors, including natural resource control, detection and monitoring of anthropic infrastructures (e.g. urban areas), agriculture inventorying, disaster prevention and damage assessment, and anomaly and target detection. Presenting the theoretical foundations of kernel methods (KMs) relevant to the remote sensing domain, this book serves as a practical guide to the design and implementation of these methods. Five distinct parts present state-of-the-art research related to remote sensing based on the recent advances in kernel methods, analysing the related methodological and practical challenges: Part I introduces the key concepts of machine learning for remote sensing, and the theoretical and practical foundations of kernel methods. Part II explores supervised image classification including Super Vector Machines (SVMs), kernel discriminant analysis, multi-temporal image classification, target detection with kernels, and Support Vector Data Description (SVDD) algorithms for anomaly detection. Part III looks at semi-supervised classification with transductive SVM approaches for hyperspectral image classification and kernel mean data classification. Part IV examines regression and model inversion, including the concept of a kernel unmixing algorithm for hyperspectral imagery, the theory and methods for quantitative remote sensing inverse problems with kernel-based equations, kernel-based BRDF (Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function), and temperature retrieval KMs. Part V deals with kernel-based feature extraction and provides a review of the principles of several multivariate analysis methods and their kernel extensions. This book is aimed at engineers, scientists and researchers involved in remote sensing data processing, and also those working within machine learning and pattern recognition.

Opto-mechatronics-the fusion of optical and mechatronic technologies-has been integral in the evolution of machines, systems, and products that are smaller and more precise, more intelligent, and more autonomous. For the technology to reach its full potential, however, engineers and researchers from many disciplines must learn to work together through every phase of system development. To date, little effort has been expended, either in practice or in the literature, to eliminate the boundaries that exist between the optics and mechatronics communities. The Opto-Mechatronics Systems Handbook is the first step in that direction. Richly illustrated and featuring contributions from an international panel of experts, it meets three essential objectives: Ö Present the definitions, fundamentals, and applications of the technology Ö Provide a multidisciplinary perspective that shows how optical systems and devices can be integrated with mechatronic systems at all stages, from conceptualization to design and manufacturing Ö Demonstrate the roles and synergistic effects of optical systems in overall system performance Along with his fresh approach and systems perspective, the editor has taken care to address real cutting-edge technologies, including precision opto-mechatronic systems, intelligent robots, and opto-microsensors. Ultimately, the Opto-Mechatronics Systems Handbook provides readers with the technological foundation for developing further innovative products and systems.

Dieses Buch ist das Standardwerk zu einem neuen Bereich der angewandten Fuzzy-Technologie, der Fuzzy-Clusteranalyse. Diese beinhaltet Verfahren der Mustererkennung zur Gruppierung und Strukturierung von Daten. Dabei werden im Gegensatz zu klassischen Clustering-Techniken die Daten nicht eindeutig zu Klassen zugeordnet, sondern Zugehörigkeitsgrade bestimmt, so daß die Fuzzy-Verfahren robust gegenüber gestörten oder verrauschten Daten sind und fließende Klassenübergänge handhaben können. Dieses Werk gibt eine methodische Einführung in die zahlreichen Fuzzy-Clustering-Algorithmen mit ihren Anwendungen in den Bereichen Datenanalyse, Erzeugung von Regeln für Fuzzy-Regler, Klassifikations- und Approximationsprobleme sowie eine ausführliche Darstellung des Shell-Clustering zur Erkennung von geometrischen Konturen in Bildern.

Bei modernen automatisierten Systemen gewinnen Anforderungen an die Flexibilität (z. B. Anpassungsfähigkeit, Skalierbarkeit und Integrationsfähigkeit) zunehmend an Bedeutung. Vielfach ist jedoch noch unklar, wie die gewünschte Flexibilität bei der Entwicklung eines automatisierten Systems erzielt und die dadurch entstehenden komplexen Abläufe und Verhaltensweisen beherrscht werden können. Mit Hilfe von Softwareagenten wird es möglich, die notwendige Flexibilität von automatisierten Systemen systematisch zu entwerfen. Im GMA-Fachausschuss 5.15 „Agentensysteme“ erarbeiten Fachleute aus Wissenschaft und Industrie Richtlinien zur Entwicklung und Anwendung von Agentensystemen in der Automatisierungstechnik. Im Rahmen dieser Arbeiten sind viele Beiträge zum Stand der Technik bzw. Stand der Wissenschaft von Agentensystemen in der Automatisierungstechnik entstanden, die in diesem Werk zusammengestellt wurden.

Jaron Lanier, der den Begriff der “virtuellen Realität“ erfunden hat, stellt in seinem neuen Buch dar, wie das World Wide Web die Individualität jedes einzelnen von uns bedroht, vermindert oder gar zerstört. Wie kein zweiter hat Jaron Lanier die revolutionären Veränderungen vorausgesagt, die mit dem Internet einhergehen und die alle Aspekte unseres Lebens betreffen: Arbeit und Freizeit, Handel und Wandel, Kommunikation und Sexualität, das kollektive wie das individuelle Leben. Wie kein zweiter warnt er vor den Gefahren des permanenten Online-Seins, vor dem Verlust an Subjektivität in der Anonymität des Netzes. Die eigene Intelligenz und das Urteil des einzelnen von Computeralgorrithmen bedroht. Technologisches Design, das File-Sharing, der Kult ums Facebook, die permanente Erreichbarkeit und oft filterlose Präsentation des Eigenen bedrohen die Kultur des Dialogs, der Eigenheit und Verborgenheit, aus denen die Individualität sich speist. Lanier zeigt die Bedrohungen in vielen Facetten auf und plädiert für einen neuen maßvollen Umgang mit dem Internet. Computer sollen, so sein leidenschaftliches Plädoyer, die Humanität verbessern, nicht ersetzen. Jaron Lanier gilt als Begründer der „virtuelle Realität“ Technologie. Er lehrt als „Scholar at Large for Live Labs, Microsoft Corporation“ in Berkeley, Kalifornien, und ist als Musiker und bildender Künstler international hervorgetreten. Seine Beiträge fanden auch in der deutschen Presse großes Echo. „Ein provozierendes, gewiss kontroverses Buch . . . Leuchtend, kraftvoll, und überzeugend.“ The New York Times „Poetisch und prophetisch . . . das wichtigste Buch des Jahres.“ The Times (London)

Volume1 of this three volume series of textbooks on photogrammetry is dedicated to the fundamentals and standard procedures, both for photogrammetry and for laser scanning that have come to the fore in recent years. Using photogrammetry and laser scanning, it is mainly the position and form of objects that are recorded and modelled. Data capture sensors are fitted to aircraft, and to terrestrial platforms for work in the immediate vicinity. Results from modelling are partly visualized as vector graphics and partly as bit-maps.
