Studies of the overall impact of robotics on the economy have shown that investments in its various sectors – industrial, professional and service robotics – are increasing globally and the markets associated with them are valued in billions. Robotization improves the competitiveness of enterprises, while collaborative robotics reinvents methods of production. Beyond the economic outlook, service robotics, backed by the development of artificial intelligence, raises challenging ethical and social issues. The legal analysis of robotics is no mean feat because it covers a very diverse technical reality. Companies whose businesses are focused on robotic technologies and applications can be confronted with a complex legal situation resulting from the plurality of the applicable rules which have not necessarily been conceived or adopted bearing in mind their specific constraints. This situation should not hamper their development. It only implies taking cues from the economic legal norms which promote such developments and conducting an analysis of the legal risks which they face, given the applicable rules of liability. This comparative study – carried out by members of the Lexing® Network – proposes an overview, having regard to the legislation of 17 different countries, of the legal issues raised by robotics and the way the law in force responds, in a more or less satisfactory manner.

"In order to reduce the seismic risk facing many densely populated regions worldwide, including Canada and the United States, modern earthquake engineering should be more widely applied. But current literature on earthquake engineering may be difficult to grasp for structural engineers who are untrained in seismic design. In addition no single resource addressed seismic design practices in both Canada and the United States until now. Elements of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics was written to fill the gap. It presents the key elements of earthquake engineering and structural dynamics at an introductory level and gives readers the basic knowledge they need to apply the seismic provisions contained in Canadian and American building codes."--Résumé de l'éditeur.

Ce ne sont pas les séismes qui tuent mais l’effondrement des constructions. C’est ainsi au génie parasismique, au travers de la réglementation, de concevoir des ouvrages résistants à l’aléa sismique dit réglementaire. Cependant, sachant que ces règles se sont améliorées en même temps que notre connaissance du phénomène naturel et des événements passés, force est de constater que la majorité des centres urbains est composée de bâtiments anciens, conçus selon des concepts et des règles de l’art souvent inadaptés au contexte sismique. Savoir évaluer la vulnérabilité des constructions existantes est donc une étape indispensable à une meilleure gestion du risque sismique et de sa politique de prévention. Après quelques rappels essentiels suivis d’exemples, cet ouvrage décrit des développements récents sur l’évaluation sismique de zones urbaines constituées d’un grand nombre de structures, dans des contextes à sismicité modérée (France, Suisse) ou forte (Italie, Grèce).

Le passage du bidimensionnel au tridimensionnel exige une remise en question de plusieurs notions (points de décollement et de recollement, bulbe de décollement, zone de recirculation, ligne de courant limite…) dont l’emploi en trois dimensions est inadéquat, voire dangereux. La théorie des singularités des systèmes d’équations différentielles de Poincaré permet l’introduction de concepts tels que les points singuliers, les lignes de séparation (ou d’attachement), les surfaces de séparation (ou d’attachement) et de règles topologiques qui permettent une description cohérente des écoulements tridimensionnels. Le décollement peut ainsi être défini de façon précise et le mécanisme de formation des tourbillons, du type trombe ou en fer à cheval, décrit rationnellement. Ces notions forment une grammaire qui est appliquée à la description d’écoulements décollés typiques se formant sur des ailes, sur des fuselages, devant des obstacles, derrière un arrière-corps ou autour d’un véhicule automobile. Le bidimensionnel est reconsidéré à la lumière des concepts du tridimensionnel, ce qui montre son caractère exceptionnel.

Experimental Robotics XV is the collection of papers presented at the International Symposium on Experimental Robotics, Roppongi, Tokyo, Japan on October 3-6, 2016. 73 scientific papers were selected and presented after peer review. The papers span a broad range of sub-fields in robotics including aerial robots, mobile robots, actuation, grasping, manipulation, planning and control and human-robot interaction, but shared cutting-edge approaches and paradigms to experimental robotics. The readers will find a breadth of new directions of experimental robotics. The International Symposium on Experimental Robotics is a series of bi-annual symposia sponsored by the International Foundation of Robotics Research, whose goal is to provide a forum dedicated to experimental robotics research. Robotics has been widening its scientific scope, deepening its methodologies and expanding its applications. However, the significance of experiments remains and will remain at the center of the discipline. The ISER gatherings are a venue where scientists can gather and talk about robotics based on this central tenet.

Amma, universally known as "The Hugging Saint," went through a two-decade transformation from a simple fisherman's daughter to an international wonder worshiped by millions. Gail "Gayatri" Tredwell was there every step of the way—from early devotee to head female disciple, ever-present personal attendant, handmaiden, whipping post, and unwilling keeper of some devastating secrets. At age nineteen, when she was a happy-go-lucky, adventurous lass from Australia, Tredwell never imagined that she would soon be trading her free spirit and skimpy clothing for a life of submission in an ankle-length sari. Her eager decision to serve the young "saint" began with innocence and a pure desire to please her new guru. In time, the relationship transformed into virtual enslavement in which Tredwell was on call 24/7 and worked herself nearly to death in the hope of finding God. Because she became fluent in the Malayalam language and had continual intimate proximity to Amma for twenty years, Tredwell is uniquely capable of portraying this famous woman. She tells her tale with straightforward honesty, fairness, and a dash of Aussie snap and wit. Although the guru’s flaws are a necessary part of her story and awakening, she strives to be factual throughout, digging deep to eschew victim frameworks and take responsibility for her own role in accepting the abuse and perpetuating the lies. The book evokes the joys of early devotional life and vibrant images of rural India. Through Tredwell's eyes, we watch a modest and traditional ashram metastasize into a business-oriented, bustling, mega-international organization. We also see how such a dizzying rise created vast opportunity for abuse, deceit, and hypocrisy. Tredwell takes us vividly through her varying stages, starting with naïveté and innocent devotion, then on to dawning awareness and confusion, finally to emotional breakdown and her shocking "enlightenment"—her realization that the liberation she urgently required was is in fact liberation from her own guru. In a gradual yet determined struggle, she managed to untangle herself from the web of myth and indoctrination. Only then was she able to muster her battered but not quite broken spirit and plot her escape. Gail's flight to freedom—her victorious recovery from a life of abuse and disillusionment—displays extraordinary strength and inspiring courage.
