Curious George wants to help clean up the planet, and recycling seems like a good place to start-but where does he begin? Follow along with George as he learns about what recycling is, how it works, and what else he can do to reduce his monkey paw print. Readers will learn the difference between recycling and trash, what happens to the things we throw away, and other ways to help keep our planet clean. Based on Curious George, the Emmy Award-winning PBS TV show, this story also includes fun facts, real photos, experiments, activities, and more. Learning about science has never been so much fun! AGES: 4-7 AUTHOR: Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
Programming Mobile Robots with Aria and Player provides a comprehensive guide to creating object-oriented C++ programs for robots using the Player and Aria APIs within a Linux environment. A basic knowledge of object-oriented techniques is assumed, but the text is written in a user-friendly style, and is equally suitable for researchers with previous experience of robot control, or for students completely new to the field. The book is fully supported throughout with examples, diagrams, sample programs, and configuration files. MobileRobot s Pioneers are used as vehicles throughout the book, but most of the techniques and programs that are demonstrated for Player are directly applicable to the wide number of other makes and models that the API supports. In addition, the Aria section is also appropriate for other robots made by MobileRobots.
The book discusses how to install the various pieces of software needed and also describes how to:
control robots remotely;
program each individual sensor and actuator; and
set up and control robots, in both the real world and in a simulated environment (either through Player s Stage plug-in or Aria s MobileSim simulator).
Programming Mobile Robots with Aria and Player serves as a complete text for undergraduate and postgraduate robotics programming modules, and is also an invaluable reference source for students, teachers and researchers."
