Offbeat Crimes
Skim Blood and Savage Verse Words damage more than just feelings as Carrington hunts feral books menacing the city. When a ferocious book attacks Carrington at his own birthday party, he believes it's an isolated incident. But similar books soon pop up all over town, menacing innocent people with harsh bits of poetry and blank verse that deliver damaging physical blows. It's a frustrating case with too many variables and not enough answers, and the stakes go up with each attack. With the help of his misfit squad mates at the 77th and the public library's Rare Books Department, the missing pieces decrease but not Carrington's vexations. His commanding officer rakes him over the coals at the beginning of every shift. His police partner has lost patience with what she sees as his delusional relationship choices and his inability to pick the right man in a vast field of two. City Hall demands that the books be stopped immediately. It's enough to put a nutritionally challenged vampire off his skim blood. Feral Dust Bunnies An orphaned kitten may be the only witness to romance and the impossible. Officer Alex Wolf responds to a lot of 'paranormal' calls that aren't. Exotic pet birds aren't monsters and unusual dog breeds aren't aliens. It's a good thing he likes the Animal Control officers, but he both yearns for and dreads those calls where he runs into ACO Jason Shen. Jason's scent is so delicious that Wolf has a difficult time humaning around him. Animal Control calls take a disturbing turn, though, when Wolf and his lizard-man partner, Krisk, discover the impossibly mummified bodies of rats and an unfortunate mother cat. The rescue of the cat's sole surviving kitten not only gives Wolf more time with Jason, which is both perplexing and wonderful, but also leads to dangerous discoveries. Something inconceivable stalks the city and its officers of the law. Wolf has to figure out what it is before it can attack and drain the life from the people and the kitten he loves.

Hot Off the Range Anthology
Riding and herding. Those spurs that jingle-jangle-jingle. What is it about cowboys that so doggedly fires the imagination? Join the Mischief Corner authors as they give you their own unique takes on the cowboy mystique and mythos, from the American West, to Australia, to outer space. The cowboy story will never be the same... Once A Cowboy - Toni Griffin It's been six years since Jesse Howard has stepped foot on the Western Hills Cattle Station. Now that he's able, Jesse's returned. The problem is, he's not returning alone. Will Logan Kennedy, the love of his life, listen to Jesse's explanations or will Logan close the door on the future Jesse's dreamed about for so long. Accounting for the Hero - Silvia Violet Grant longs for a hero to ride up on his valiant steed and revive his failing ranch, but he hires, Miles, a man with a desperate need for a job and no ranch experience. Miles may know a lot more about bookkeeping than calf-roping, but that doesn't mean he's incapable of heroics or of capturing Grant's heart. Sock Poacher and the Shower Thief: Tall Tales of Hooper's Town 1 - Freddy MacKay One step at a time, one foot in front of the other. All things are possible when someone steps outside their door. In Namid's case, he meets the town recluse, Dusty, when he gets attacked by Dusty's porch. And that's only the beginning. BULL: Corralling Nature 1 - Mathilde Watson Shy, awkward, and overweight, Roland Paulson wasn't the kind of man who attracted a lot of amorous attention. His romantic life consisted of a series of short lived flings and one night stands with other men who were just as desperate. When propositioned by a charming cowboy with the body of a god, he expected sex. He never imagined the wild ride that would follow. From the moment Dodge Bramen set eyes on the adorable red-head he wanted him. And Dodge was a man who gets what he wants. He had no trouble luring the guy into his bed, but keeping him there was a different story. Deep kept secrets and unexpected discoveries could either strengthen their bond or break it. Fear of Frogs: Brimstone 2 - Angel Martinez While Shax recovers from a near fatality, his shipmates have been busy. He's rather proud of them taking the initiative and finding them a lucrative cargo run. His pride turns to outright horror, though, when he finds out what sort of cargo. Unfortunately, he'll soon discover that a healthy fear of frogs doesn't prevent frog-driven disasters. Time travel has never been so messy.

USV Attitude Position Estimation by a Hovering UAV Using Monocular Images of Deck-Mounted Lights

release date: Jan 01, 2022
USV Attitude Position Estimation by a Hovering UAV Using Monocular Images of Deck-Mounted Lights
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is especially interesting among aircraft due its holonomic constraints, in other words, UAV can be capable of moving on 6-Degrees of freedom resulting in the possibility of landing and taking off vertically using their rotors to translate on Z-axis without moving on X-axis, unlike fixed-wing planes. Position and orientation estimation has been the focus of much research in recent decades. Onboard sensors widely utilized for such tasks include, but not limited, IMU, GPS, and a camera. In addition, since UAVs can operate in areas where the GPS isn't always available [ab], a vision sensor can be an important element of any autonomous system, and because of its adaptability a lot of information can be collected from only image frames to help with scene interpretation, navigation and pose estimation. Due to the incapability of monocular vision to perceive depth using a single image frame without any extra knowledge of the captured image, research has recently been done to estimate pose using multiple camera arrangements that rely on stereo disparity principle[ac][ad], which refers to the pixel location discrepancy when comparing object on overlapped images captured by different cameras, where object triangulation can be done since the distance between lenses is a well-known parameter, while other studies focus on compute disparity between image sequences using monocular vision[ae] and how disparity evolves in time. Because both techniques increase processing costs due to the complexity of image comparison, another branch of monocular vision research the use of cues on the captured image, that is, a reference point which dimensions were previously measured, as results a ratio between pixels and world units can be obtained and then target depth and distance estimation can be computed by comparison. Cues are not limited to knowing reference size; it is also possible to know cues geometry or even have numerous cues arranged on a well-known pattern or geometry, and use such fact to estimate target position and orientation. Furthermore, in environments where orientation and position play a crucial role, such as UAV landing, where it is expected that the UAV knows at all moment its position regarding the landing area, which, could or not has a constrained axis, that is, a 6 degrees of freedom landing area where translation and rotation is possible, there exist the need to develop reliable estimation methods that use sensors that are available to the UAV. For that reason, this thesis addresses the difficulty of computing the UAV relative height and absolute orientation of an Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) due to sea state 6 conditions, based primarily on a single image capture of n beacons, that is signal lights, arranged as a circular pattern around the center of the USV's deck, being image captured by a camera mounted on the UAV, which is hovering above the USV. The final objective is to be able to accurately estimate the dynamic state of the USV so that the UAV can land on the USV autonomously in up to sea state 6 conditions. This scenario is similar to landing on a dynamic terrestrial target, but with the added challenge of the sea's motion causing continuous USV translation and orientation.
