The Thinking Drummer: Energy & Motion By Michael Bettine
eBook (PDF): $9.99
Download immediately.
The Thinking Drummer: Energy & Motion, is a 62-page book that looks at the energy of what we play in rock style drumming. While there are many great drum books out there, they tend to present... More > exercises with little explanation behind those exercises. This book investigates how we, as drummers, move energy through time and space. The book is meant to get drummers thinking about what they play and presents various concepts to creatively expand your ideas & abilities. While the book starts out very basic, it takes a completely different perspective on those basic ideas and progresses through more advanced concepts. The ideas presented are designed to be applied to what you are already playing. Besides looking at Energy & Motion, there are exercises for control, and alternative ideas that are designed to open up your creativity. The book is recommended for intermediate to advanced drummers.< Less

Self-Organising Locally Interpolating Maps in Control Engineering By Helge Hülsen
Paperback: $9.66
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The work is motivated by problems during automated motion control of mobile microrobots. For a high positioning accuracy a data-based learning controller model is required since a microrobot's motion... More > behaviour is difficult to model and since the model parameters even change with time. The approach of the Self-Organising Locally Interpolating Map (SOLIM) includes a new method that continuously and interpretably maps from a grid of input support vectors, e.g. a robot's velocity, to a grid of output support vectors, e.g. corresponding control commands. Moreover, a learning algorithm has been developed, which iteratively adapts the output support vectors such that the SOLIM map represents an inverse model of the unknown system to be controlled. The most important properties of the SOLIM approach have been proven in simulations and during position control of mobile micro-robots.< Less

A Comprehensible Guiode to Servo Motor Sizing By Wilfried Voss
Paperback: $19.95
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The Importance of servo motor sizing should not be underestimated. Proper motor sizing will not only result in significant cost savings by saving energy, reducing purchasing and operating costs,... More > reducing downtime, etc.; it also helps the engineer to design better motion control systems. However, the knowledge of mechanical systems and their influence on motor speed, inertia and torque requirements seems to decline in a world where modern technology aspects, such as tuning and programming, seem to be the main focus. The motor sizing process involves a number of mathematical equations, which are most certainly documented, but not necessarily with the motor sizing process in mind. This book focuses primarily on servo motor sizing and it documents in detail the inertia and torque calculations of standard mechanical components and the motor selection process.< Less
