New Telecom Networks

Enterprises and Security

Daniel Battu, Consultant

Nowadays, the Internet has become an irreplaceable tool, feeding us information about new innovations and the evolution of the markets relating to all human activities. What the Internet lacks, though, is a guiding narrative thread, which is crucial to understand the evolution from old technologies into the technologies available today, and to benefit from the commentary which could elucidate that...

Rapid Prototyping of Software for Avionics Systems

Model-oriented Approaches for Complex Systems Certification

Nicolas Larrieu and Antoine Varet, ENAC (French Civil Aviation University), France

The design, implementation and validation of avionics and aeronautical systems have become extremely complex tasks due to the increase of functionalities that are deployed in current avionics systems and the need to be able certify them before putting them into production.
This book proposes a methodology to enable the rapid prototyping of such a system by considering from the start the certific...

New Sensors and Processing Chain

Edited by Jean-Hugh Thomas and Nourdin Yaakoubi, University of Maine, France

Extracting information on a system is required to understand its state, to describe its behavior and to predict any early damage in order to be able to undertake the necessary corrective actions. The essential mechanism for data acquisition is the physical sensor, which can be electronic, chemical, biological, mechanical, acoustic, etc. For some years, the sensor environment has been changing. The...

LTE Standards

Jean-Gabriel Remy, Catholic University of Paris (ISEP), France Charlotte Letamendia, France

LTE (Long Term Evolution) is commonly marketed as 4G. LTE and LTE Advanced have been recognized by ITU-R and ITU-T (International Telecommunications Union – Telecommunications) as the principal solution for the future mobile communication networks standards. They are thus the framework of what the marketing calls 4G and possibly also 5G.
This book describes various aspects of LTE as well as the ...

Haptic Feedback Teleoperation of Optical Tweezers

Zhenjiang Ni, Institut des Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotique (ISIR), University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris Céline Pacoret, ISIR, University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris Ryad Benosman, University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, France Stéphane Régnier, ISIR, University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris

The authors of this book provide the first review of haptic optical tweezers, a new technique which brings together force feedback teleoperation and optical tweezers.
This technique allows users to explore the microworld by sensing and exerting piconewton-scale forces with trapped microspheres. The design of optical tweezers for high-quality haptic feedback is challenging, given the requirements...
