April 15, See also: Addendum Issue Underground mining is a complex high-tech industry. New technologies have removed a lot of the labour intensive work that was part of mining operations in the past and, in some cases, they have also improved safety.
Special Issue on Agricultural Robotics Agricultural robotics faces several unique challenges and operates at the intersection of applied robotic vision, manipulation and crop science.
Robotics will provide a key role in improving productivity, increasing crop quality and even enabling individualized weed and crop treatment.
All these advancements are integral for providing food to a growing population expected to reach 9 billion byrequiring agricultural production to double to meet food demands. We invite papers that exhibit theory and methods applied to robotic systems in agriculture including, but not limited to: We encourage contributions that focus on agriculture, covering different fields of robotics, robotic vision, autonomous vehicles, manipulation, control, path planning, human robot interaction, and machine learning.
An emphasis will be placed on vision and action that works in the field by coping with changes in appearance and geometry of the environment. Learning how to interact within this complicated environment will also be of special interest to the special issue as will alternative applications enabled by better understanding and exploiting the link between robotics and crop science.
Papers for this special issue must provide technical descriptions of systems, analysis, and results of experimentation. Lessons learned in development and operation are pertinent to the discussion.
JFR encourages multimedia content and this issue seeks inclusion of media illustrating system concepts and field experiments. This special issue will follow a rolling schedule.
The papers can be submitted anytime before August 15, The papers will be reviewed and a decision made, as and when they are received. Papers that are accepted will appear online within two weeks of decision. All the accepted papers will then appear in the special print issue of JFR.
The Journal of Field Robotics JFR announces its sixth special issue on space robotics to examine topics related to robots and space. This biannual special issue will present and discuss the state of the art in space robots.
We invite papers that exhibit theory and methods applied to robotic systems in space including: Papers for this special issue must provide technical descriptions of systems and results and analysis of experimentation.
We encourage papers addressing all aspects of space robotic systems. Our emphasis is on systems that fulfill a specific space-relevant application. Robotic systems in Earth orbit, traveling in deep space, and operating on the surfaces of planets, moons, comets, or asteroids are of particular interest, as well systems envisioned for space application but developed and demonstrated in relevant environments here on Earth.
The JFR encourages multimedia content and this issue seeks inclusion of media illustrating system concept, experiments, and of course space operation. September 28, — Submit manuscripts November 9, — Initial reviews completed January 25, — Decisions and author notification March 1, — Final manuscripts for publication Authors interested can discuss submissions with the special issue editors.McLaren History.
McLaren Engines was created in when the New Zealand-born company founder and racing legend Bruce McLaren established a North American base to support his initiatives in the Can-Am and Indy racing series.
LASIK or Lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), commonly referred to as laser eye surgery or laser vision correction, is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
The LASIK surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye's cornea in order to improve visual acuity.
