Computer vision and sensor-based robots by George G Dodd( Book )

6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal ofthe symposium, "Computer Vision and Sensor-Based Robots," held at the General Motors Research Laboratories on September 2S and 26, 1978, was to stimulate a closer interaction between people working in diverse areas and to discuss fundamental issues related to vision and robotics. This book contains the papers and general discussions of that symposium, the 22nd in an annual series covering different technical disciplines that are timely and of interest to General Motors as well as the technical community at large. The subject of this symposium remains timely because the cost of computer vision hardware continues to drop and there is increasing use of robots in manufacturing applications. Current industrial applications of computer vision range from simple systems that measure or compare to sophisticated systems for part location determination and inspection. Almost all industrial robots today work with known parts in known posi­ tions, and we are just now beginning to see the emergence of programmable automa­ tion in which the robot can react to its environment when stimulated by visual and force-touch sensor inputs. As discussed in the symposium, future advances will depend largely on research now underway in several key areas. Development of vision systems that can meet industrial speed and resolution requirements with a sense of depth and color is a necessary step

Emissions from continuous combustion systems; proceedings by Walter Cornelius( Book )

8 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume documents the proceedings of the Symposium on Emissions from Continuous Combustion Systems that was held at the General Motors Research Laboratories, Warren, Michigan on September 27 and 28, 1971. This symposium was the fifteenth in an annual series presented by the Research Laboratories. Each symposium has covered a different technical discipline. To be selected as the theme of a symposium, the subject must be timely and of vital interest to General Motors as well as to the technical community at large. For each symposium, the practice is to solicit papers at the forefront of research from recognized authorities in the technical discipline of interest. Approximately sixty scientists and engineers from academic, government and industrial circles in this country and abroad are then invited to join about an equal number of General Motors technical personnel to discuss freely the commissioned papers. The technical portion of the meeting is supplemented by social functions at which ample time is afforded for informal exchanges of ideas amongst the participants. By such a direct interaction of a small and select group of informed participants, it is hoped to extend the boundaries of research in the selected technical field
Future automotive fuels : prospects, performance, perspective : [proceedings of the Symposium on Future Automotive Fuels--Prospects, Performance, and Perspective, held at the General Motors Research Laboratories, Warren, Michigan, October 6-7, 1975] by Joseph M Colucci( Book )

6 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In October 1975, while the United States was still acutely feeling the aftermath of the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo, the General Motors Research Laboratories held its nineteenth annual symposium. The proceedings of this timely symposium on "Future Automotive Fuels - Prospects, Performance, and Perspective" are reported in this book. We hope that it will serve not only as a permanent record of the papers and discussions, but also as a stimulus and inspiration for ideas, research, and development in the vital field of automotive fuels. The economy of the United States and the lifestyle of her people are woven together with energy into a unique fabric. Reducing the energy content of this fabric weakens it and can even destroy it. The Oil Embargo stunningly demonstrated how easy it is to attack this fabric, and exposed for all to see its greatest weaknes- reliance on imported petroleum. Since petroleum is the only current source of automotive fuels, and cars and trucks consume about 43 percent of the petroleum used in the United States, the Oil Embargo had its most profound and dramatic on automotive transportation: First there were long lines at service stations, impact and then idle lines in car assembly plants and long lines at unemployment offices. Against this grim setting, we planned the symposium on automotive fuels for the future

The catalytic chemistry of nitrogen oxides : [proceedings of the Symposium on the Catalytic Chemistry of Nitrogen Oxides held at the General Motors Research Laboratories, Warren, Michigan, October 7-8, 1974] by Richard L Klimisch( Book )

6 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the papers and discussions from the sympo!, ium on "The Catalytic Chemistry of Nitrogen Oxides" held at the General Motors Research Laboratories on October 7-8, 1974. This symposium is the eighteenth in the annual series presented by the Research Laboratories. The topics for these symposiums have covered a broad range. Each topic was selected to be of intense current interest and of significant technical importance. There is no question that the subject of the 1974 Symposium satisfies these two criteria. The control of automotive nitrogen oxides has been perhaps the most difficult and controversial area of automotive emissions both in terms of what is necessary and in terms of what is technically feasible. This area has been a source of considerable discussion not only in the technical community but also in governments both in the U.S. and abroad. This meeting brought together scientists working in surface chemistry with engineers working on system design. It also brought together representatives of government, academia and industry. We feel that an important side benefit of the meeting was the improved understanding that was developed between these groups. Participants came from Europe and Japan as well as Canada and the United States. The technical papers spanned the range from fundamental interactions of NO on surfaces through bench scale kinetic and mechanistic studies and ended with catalytic applications. Although the emphasis was on automotive NO removal, stack gas NO x x control was also covered
Aerodynamic drag mechanisms of bluff bodies and road vehicles by Gino Sovran( Book )

6 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These Proceedings contain the papers and oral discussions presented at the Symposium on AERODYNAMIC DRAG MECHANISMS of Bluff Bodies and Road Vehides held at the General Motors Research Laboratories in Warren, Michigan, on September 27 and 28, 1976. This international, invitational Symposium was the twentieth in an annual series, each one having been in a different technical discipline. The Symposia provide a forum for areas of science and technology that are of timely interest to the Research Laboratories as weIl as the technical community at large, and in which personnel of the Laboratories are actively involved. The Symposia furnish an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and current knowledge between participating research specialists from educational, industrial arid governmental institutions and serve to stimulate future research activity. The present world-wide energy situation makes it highly desirable to reduce the force required to move road vehicles through the atmosphere. A significant amount of the total energy consumed for transportation is expended in overcoming the aerodynamic resistance to motion of these vehicles. Reductions in this aerodynamic drag can therefore have a large impact on ground transportation energy requirements. Although aerodynamic development work on road vehides has been performed for many years, it has not been widely reported or accompanied by much basic research
