Abstract: A computation of the electron mass is found utilizing a generalized holographic approach in terms of quantum electromagnetic vacuum fluctuations. The solution gives a clear insight into the structure of the hydrogen Bohr atom, in terms of the electron cloud and its relationship to the proton and the Planck scale vacuum fluctuations. Our electron mass solution is in agreement with the measured CODATA (Committee on Data of the International Council for Science) 2014 value. As a result, an elucidation of the source of the fine structure constant, the Rydberg constant and the proton-to-electron mass ratio is determined to be in terms of vacuum energy interacting at the Planck scale.

Abstract: Apricot (Prunus sp.) is an important fruit crop worldwide. Despite recent advances in apricot research, much is still to be done to improve its productivity and environmental adaptability. The availability of wild apricot germplasms with economically interesting traits is a strong incentive to increase research panels toward improving its economic, environmental and nutritional characteristics. New technologies and genomic studies have generated a large amount of raw data that the mining and exploitation can help decrypt the biology of apricot and enhance its agronomic values. Here, we outline recent findings in relation to apricot production, pomological and nutraceutical properties. In particular, we retrace its origin from central Asia and the path it took to attain Europe and other production areas around the Mediterranean basin while locating it in the rosaceae family and referring to its genetic diversities and new attempts of classification. The production, nutritional, and nutraceutical importance of apricot are recapped in an easy readable and comparable way. We also highlight and discuss the effects of late frost damages on apricot production over different growth stages, from swollen buds to green fruits formation. Issues related to the length of production season and biotic and abiotic environmental challenges are also discussed with future perspective on how to lengthen the production season without compromising the fruit quality and productivity

Abstract: Calculation of distribution of flux density in the constructional elements is required in non-destructive testing. Paper presents the simplified method of calculation of flux density distribution in H-bar based on the generalization of the method of moments. In opposite to finite elements method, the method of moments doesn’t require to solve ill-posed differential equations. As a result, the solution together with software presented in the paper can be helpful in the process of non-destructive evaluation of the mechanical stress distribution in ferromagnetic construction elements.

Abstract: In this paper we study the design of a small mobile robot that resembles a self-driving car. The robot has been designed on the basis of a cheap, radio controlled toy car, but equipped with an embedded controller, a vision system and range sensors. To keep the robot affordable, low-cost, off-the-shelf components are used in the design. The developed robot is used to demonstrate the behavioral paradigm of the control system design, which is commonly used in mobile robots. The small autonomous car becomes an attractive educational tool, that may give the students an insight in both the hardware and software aspects of mobile robotics.

Abstract: In this paper, method for computation of a realization of a given proper transfer function of descriptor fractional continuous-time one-dimensional linear systems has been presented. For the proposed method, an algorithm a based on digraphs theory was constructed. The proposed solution allows determine sets of realizations as a \((\mathbf {E},\mathbf {A},\mathbf {B},\mathbf {C})\) matrices pairs. Method was discussed and illustrated with numerical examples.

Abstract: This paper formulates dynamic equations of motion of a 4-wheel mobile robot equipped with mecanum-type wheels. This new approach towards the formulation of equations has been applied by the usage of Maggi’s mathematical formalism. When describing the dynamics of the mobile robot, dynamic equations of motion have been designed by the application of Lagrange’s equations with multipliers. Lagrange’s multipliers occurring in dynamic equations of motion cause difficulties in the application of such a form to the real-time steering synthesis of the analyzed object. Maggi’s mathematical formalism has been applied to eliminate the need for multipliers. Numerical simulations of the inverse dynamics task have been conducted for the obtained dynamic motion parameters stemming from the inverse kinematics task.

Abstract: This paper formulates kinematic equations of motion of a 4-wheel mobile robot equipped with mecanum-type wheels. It has been assumed that the motion of the robot occurs within the x-y plane. A classical approach applied in mechanics has been used for the formulation of the robot’s equations of motion. Computer simulations have been conducted with the obtained kinematics equations of motion, assuming motion through straight line tracks and tracks in the shape of a loop, and also assuming a constant robot frame orientation angle.
