 Book Description


The 2nd volume of ‘Advances in Computers and Software Engineering: Reviews’ Book Series contains five chapters written by 10 authors from 4 countries: Canada, China, Italy and UK. This book ensures that our readers will stay at the cutting edge of the field and get the right and effective start point and road map for the further researches and developments. By this way, they will be able to save more time for productive research activity and eliminate routine work.


With this unique combination of information in each volume, the ‘Advances in Computers and Software Engineering: Reviews’  will be of value for scientists and engineers in appropriate industry and at universities.


Like the first volume of this book Series, the 2nd  volume also has been organized by topics of high interest. In order to offer a fast and easy reading of the state of the art of each topic, every chapter in this book is independent and self-contained. All chapters have the same structure: first an introduction to specific topic under study; second particular field description including sensing applications. Each of chapter is ending by well selected list of references with books, journals, conference proceedings and web sites.
