Precision Instrumentation and Measurement
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The aim of this unique collection of peer-reviewed papers is to deepen the mutual understanding of researchers in precision measurement and related fields and to to initiate joint international research among participants.
The topics covered include precision mechanical/electrical measurements, optical measurements, metrology (mechanical, electrical), nano/micro-scale measurements, signal-processing, numerical simulation, precision control, information technology for precision measurement, dynamic calibration for force transducers and the Levitation Mass Method (LMM). The 70 papers are grouped into the chapters: I. Precision Measurement, II. Mechatronics, III: Damped Vibration and Sound, IV. Optical Measurement, V. Electrical Measurement, VI. Measurement in Social Life, VIII. Signal and Image Processing.
The contents will be of interest to metrologists and engineers working in many different fields.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The two gatherings were held in Kiryu, Japan during the ski season of 2010. The 70 selected papers here cover precision measurement, mechatronics, damped vibration and sound, optical measurement, electrical measurement, measurement in social life, pattern measurement, and signal and image processing. Among the topics are modeling and analyzing an arc weld inverter based on double closed-loop control, an interface based on mouth open/close motions, dynamic responses for viscoelastic shock absorbers to protect a finger under impact force, laser Doppler velocimetery using integrated waveguide technology, a novel technique for detecting triboelectricity under perfect non-contact conditions, erecting building facades in urban space and texture mapping to a three-dimensional polygon map using an in-vehicle camera, recovering the shape of a specular object in the presence of inter-reflection, and the integral and direct representation of nonlinear inverse mapping.
