His father's son : Earl and Tiger Woods by Tom Callahan ( Book )
4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the time he entered the public consciousness as a two-year-old golf prodigy on The Mike Douglas Show, Eldrick "Tiger" Woods has often been viewed less as a human being and more as a ball-striking machine--and his carefully guarded image seemed to guarantee that it would remain that way. Even after his recent adultery scandal, the public still knows very little about the man. But one thing is certain: Earl Woods, Tiger's beloved and now deceased father, knew him better and influenced his life more than anyone. Here, journalist Tom Callahan offers a full biography of Earl Dennison Woods, the Vietnam War veteran who raised the golf phenomenon, and in turn, a full biography of Tiger Woods. With exclusive access to and interviews with Earl, Tiger, and a host of friends, family members, coaches, and veteran golf players, Callahan provides an unprecedented look into their lives and their remarkably close relationship. --From publisher description
The GM : the inside story of a dream job and the nightmares that go with it by Tom Callahan ( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the summer of 2006, the NFL's most senior general manager, Ernie Accorsi, invited sports journalist Tom Callahan "inside" the Giants organization to experience a season--Accorsi's last--from the front office, the locker room, the sidelines, and the tunnel. The result is at once a chronicle of a tumultuous season and the story of the NFL over the last three and a half decades. In a marriage of two great raconteurs, one lobbing stories and the other neatly catching them, Callahan and Accorsi--writer and subject--show how the pro game (and the league that showcases it) really works, and the peculiar role of today's general manager, who must be part seer, part accountant, and, in Accorsi's case, a consummate football-personnel strategist who, over the course of decades, gave everything to the game he loved.--From publisher description

Picking up an Object from a Pile of Objects ( Book )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper describes a hand-eye system we developed to perform the bin-picking task. Two basic tools are employed: the photometric stereo method and the extended Gaussian image. The photometric stereo method generates the surface normal distribution of a scene. The extended Gaussian image allows us to determine the attitude of the object based on the normal distribution. visual analysis of an image consists of two stages. The first stage segments the image into regions and determines the target region. The photometric stereo system provides the surface normal distribution of the scene. The sytem segments the scene into isolated regions using ghe surface normal distribution rathan than the brightness distribuiton. The second stage determines the object attitude and position by comparing the surface normal distribution with the extended-Gaussian-image. Fingers, with LED sensor, mounted on the PUMA arm can successfully pick an object from a pile based on the information from the vision part. (Author)
