1-0 out of 5 stars Just an overblown IMAQ User Manual
This book was pretty disappointing - all of the information in it is easily found for free in either the IMAQ user manual, or at the National Insutruments Developer Zone - www.zone.ni.com.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very helpful guide
As lawyers who advise technology companies we try to be familiar with the technology and products our clients use. We do not buy many technical books, but we wanted this one because of the legal implications in image processing. We found the book to be a very useful guide and to be written in language that, while not "simple," gave us a clear and succinct, practical view into and understanding of the technology and products.

2-0 out of 5 stars Alas, the book was oversold..
:
The general feeling I had after reading the book was that of a disappointment. Overloaded with handbook information on image encoding, compression algorithms etc., the book lacked substance in vision algorithm applications. Expanded IMAQ manual it is, a good book on applications of IMAQ vision algorithms it is not.

Espessially disappointing was section on DICOM: whole 4 pages with 2 pages of illustration, promulgating third party software, with not much to offer.

The book describes what image analysis algorithms do to image; it does not give hints when we want to use/try what algorithm.
It appeared to me the author was more concerned with money making than with writing a decent text.

The book can be probably useful for the very beginners, as a substitution for poorly written IMAQ manual. Again, then they should not worry of a minor issue of $70 price tag.. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful intro to networking
This book provided me with much more knowledge than I expected when I bought it. It covers networking and internet basics and explains technologies such as TCP, IP, and UDP for a beginner a well as the various networking tools provided by LabVIEW in detail. It is a perfect mix of background and general info with LabVIEW detail. This is definitely a great book to get into networked apps with.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent and Compact source of information
With 10+ years of LabVIEW programming experience I found Jeff's book to be an excellent and compact source of internet and network applications in LabVIEW. The background was excellent and not overly in depth. The sample programs on the CD consumed hours of my time examining all the great examples it contained. My copy is littered with underlines, highlights and post-it notes marking the good spots! (he should have simply printed the pages in yellow paper!)

For LabVIEW programmers it's an excellent timesaver for internet info and apps in LabVIEW.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must have for Network and Internet LabVIEW Coders
With 10+ years programming in LabVIEW this book was very useful and on the mark with explaining internet technologies. Well worth the money in time you'd spend looking for this info all over the net.

5-0 out of 5 stars I needed to control my labview vis over the web
this book is dense and packed with more information than you probably will use, but i gave it five stars because it does have everything you need, theory and examples, for controlling your vis over the web. you learn to use java and activex, step-by-step.

with the software and examples in this book, i was able to set up a web browser control of my chemistry lab.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clears up many questions about Internet technology

4-0 out of 5 stars Nothing dry in this history!
NB this review refers to the 1988 reprint of the 1974 edition. So you thought Jack and Jill were just a couple of clumsy kids trying to get some water from the well? Think again - the familiar nursey rhyme is a piece of political satire from the time of Charles 1. Klein's book is full of similar snippets that will serve you in good stead at a dinner party! "Science of Measurement" is an excellent coverage of the SI units - although even this reprint is missing the major redefinition of the metre in 1983. Use this book as a history, and as a guide to the physics behind measurements, but for the most up-to-date definitions of the units you'll want to check a more recent publication. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Better to wait for Macleod's 3rd edition
I bought a used copy of Optical Thin Films at a book show for $ 1. I would say that one dollar is about the fair price for Rancourt's book. It gives very little insight into the design of optical filters, and the discussion of technology was dated even at the time of publishing (1987); thirteen years later, the book borders on Cro-Magnon. Instead, I'm "chomping at the bit" to get Angus Macleod's latest version of his old workhorse, Thin Film Optical Filters, due out any day now. ... Read more

Great technical book packed only with useful information. Great section on understanding basic electrical parameters. I needed a position sensor and this book taught me what to look for, and how to understand it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book for sensor engineers
The chapters about sensors and specs in general are great for new engineers to understand what's important in designing sensors. The rest of the chapters give an understanding of many types of sensors. The author's style is to be short and to the point, just what I like. The book is fairly short, and I hope future editions may expand more on some of the deatails. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars An overview to the subject material
This book attempts to cover A LOT of ground in 60 pages. I really fault the publishers for not allowing him to write and elaborate more on the subjects. It contains the absolute essentisls of understanding how mathematic notation and methods of measuring came about. The additional explanatory material is very consise and little erratic because of space requirements. Personally, the most useful thing I found in it wre the tables of measurements (such as cubits, palms, digits, etc.) and how they approximate to the modern metric system. I also found it to be a good primer for more thorough books such "The Exact Sciences in Antiquity" or "Science Awakening". ... Read more

Book Description

Laser-Aided Diagnostics of Gases and Plasmas is

an updated and revised translation of the original

Japanese edition. The authors have taken a

unique approach in treating laser aided

diagnostics as a unified subject instead of the

usual and disjointed approach of describing each

application as a totally separate system. In taking

this approach, they highlight the relative strengths

of each method and show how they can

compliment each other in the study of gases and

plasmas. The first part provides a general

introduction to the laser-aided study of gases and

plasmas, including the various principles and

hardware needed for each method whilst the

second part describes the applications of each

general system in detail.

This book will provide a useful tool for a wide

spectrum of researchers, both academic and

industrial, involved in the analysis and diagnostics

of gases and plasmas and give a deeper insight

and understanding of the various options and

methods available when making such studies. ... Read more

Book Description

This book was developed from material prepared for a course in instrumentation for final year mechanical engineering undergraduates. The approach used is to present instrumentation from the viewpoints of both electronics and signal analysis. The sensors and electronic circuits likely to be needed by a final year student project and for postgraduate research, are comprehensively covered.It forms a suitable degree-level text for students of engineering, science or medicine seeking a practical guide to instrumentation. It is also hoped that the book will be of use to practising engineers in general.The authors' aim throughout has been to write a book which guides the reader through the intricacies of specifying and selecting an instrumentation system, acquiring data without corrupting or distorting it in the process, and applying sensible signal analysis techniques. Examples and case studies are used to illustrate the techniques discussed, including many drawn from real-life instrumentation problems encountered by the authors in engineering, physics and medicine.The sequence of chapters follows the flow of data from the primary sensing element, through transduction, signal processing and digital conversion to digital signal analysis techniques. This logical sequence ensures that the design process is undertaken in the correct order, and provides continuity for the reader. ... Read more

I buy this book after build an amplifier unit and install strain gages and measure impact waves, and in past years I useand designed flow meters. This book is very superficial. An experimenterneed that somebody take information from electrical books, manufacturermanuals(strain gages), signal analysis books, fluid dynamics books, solidmechanics books, etc. and explain its use in instrumentation. Most peopleknow what a strain gage is...is not a mistery!. The real challenge is tomake the system work! and know that a strain gage is a electricalresistance don't help.

This is a very nice collection of papers: tutorials, and well written research presented to a wide audience. They cover stochastic aspects, geometry, analysis, iterated function systems, algorithms, to mention just a few. And they are written by authorities in the field. Fractals make headlines from time to time[--are they everywhere?], and and they make lovely color pictures; but they are also part of a substantial mathematical theory, one with an exciting mathematical history. This very important book presents the subject in a way that it can be taught to students. Or it can be used for selfstudy! In view of the many applications to geometric analysis, to PDE, and to statistics, it is likely that fractal geometry will soon be a standard math course taught in many (more) math departments. A recent example of this: By now it is widely recognized that the selfsimilarity aspects of the wavelet algorithms are key to their sucess. The authors have produced an attractive book on fractals. There are others, for example one by Falconer from 1985[The geometry of fractal sets] with a slightly more potential theoretic bent. ... Read more

Book Description

"How much does it weigh?" seems a simple question. To scientists and engineers, however, the answer is far from simple, and determining the answer demands consideration of an almost overwhelming number of factors.With an intriguing blend of history, fundamentals, and technical details, the Handbook of Mass Measurement sets forth the details of achieving the highest precision in mass measurements. It covers the whole field, from the development, calibration, and maintenance of mass standards to detailed accounts of weighing designs, balances, and uncertainty. It addresses the entire measurement process and provides in-depth examinations of the various factors that introduce error.Much of the material is the authors' own work and some of it is published here for the first time. Jones and Schoonover are both highly regarded veterans of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology. With this handbook, they have provided a service and resource vital to anyone involved not only in the determination of mass, but also to the entire field of precision measurement. ... Read more

Book Description

The problem of reliably detecting explosives, whether in buried landmines or hidden in cars, aircraft cargo, baggage, or carried by suicide bombers, has not yet been solved. Explosive device detection technology can make a major contribution to collective, family and individual security. This book reviews the state of the art in a wide range of different technologies and considers whether there are alternative methods or technologies. It includes information from experts about methods and field experience. The consensus is that current sensor technologies are inadequate for most mine action tasks and anti-terrorist activities (consider plastic mines) and no single sensor system will be able to meet all needs. Scientists must forge strong links with end users and should visit real minefields to acquire a clear understanding of the problems. ... Read more

Book Description

From the Author's PrefaceCeramic sensors have been in use for more than thirty years. Since ceramics exhibit a number of specific characteristics that enable their cost to become lower and their reliability to increase, they have occupied a significant position in sensor technology. This is why many companies and universities have directed their efforts towards investigating and developing new ceramic sensors and expanding their areas of application.To the best of our knowledge.., there [has been] no book treating different sensors on the basis of their common physical and chemical properties, technological principles, and applications. This book [is] a detailed survey of ceramic sensors and a generalization of the results achieved in this field so far. Ceramic sensors for different physical quantities are discussed without going too deep into theory...The concept of ceramic sensors includes all sensors that are produced using ceramic technology. It also covers thick film sensors, since from a structural and technological point of view, they can be regarded as a variety of ceramic sensors. The subject of scientific research in this book is humidity, gas. temperature, and pressure sensors on the basis of semiconductor and dielectric ceramic materials and solid electrolytes.Special attention is paid to the physical and chemical, as well as the technological, bases of ceramic sensors, their classification, the types of materials used... , the methods of controlling their parameters and characteristics, the areas of application, and the electric circuits for connecting the sensors. ...
