Computer vision-based agricultural engineering – This unique work provides student, engineers and technologists working in research, development, and operations in the agricultural engineering with critical, comprehensive and readily accessible information. The book applies development of artificial intelligence theory and methods including depth learning and transfer learning to the field of agricultural engineering testing.  S675.Z49 2020

In the making: digital fabrication and disability – The basic principles of digital fabrication – the transformation from concept to physical entity – offer intriguing possibilities for aesthetic and cultural readings, particularly from the perspectives of disability. Online, open access maker communities mean that anyone with an internet connection and a desktop 3D printer is able to download and print a wide variety of replicable and customisable objects. What might this mean for disabled people?  TS171.95.H87 2020

Motor vehicles, the environment, and the human condition : driving to extinction – The world now has more than a billion motor vehicles, and this number continues to increase as developing countries imitate developed societies in their adoption of the culture of automobility. Motor Vehicles, the Environment, and the Human Condition: Driving to Extinction explores the political ecology of motor vehicles in an era of growing social disparities and environmental crises, the latter of which are most manifest in anthropogenic climate change to which motor vehicles are a major contributor.
