Short Description: 2061, Japan. Mankind has lost the sky, and with it, its connections. All of it was taken away by birds... ...By countless artificial pigeons flying through the sky.
With no radios, and no real choice but to submit to the artificial pigeons, people are stuck until Sora builds a new type of radio. He tries to broadcast a radio show, only to find out from the same radio he will die in 3 weeks.
After listening to the ominous broadcast, Sora stepped into the terminal for the first time in fifteen years. It was once the former gateway to Japan, and the place where Sora lost his parents. The building was in ruins, a shadow of its former glory, little more than a nest to countless artificial pigeons. There, Sora met a silver-haired maiden. She looked straight at Sora, gently stroking an artificial pigeon with her finger.
One of the pleasures of listening to sci-fi books is the ideas they explore, from artificial intelligence to space travel and alien species. Beyond raising fascinating possibilities, the best works of science fiction ask big questions: What does it mean to be human What will the future look like What mysteries does the universe hold, and what do they mean for life on Earth Sci-fi, as a medium, is incredibly well-suited to tackle complex and thorny issues while also telling riveting, imaginative stories.
Abstract:Modular robots are flexible structures that offer versatility and configuration options for carrying out different types of movements; however, disconnection problems between the modules can lead to the loss of information, and, therefore, the proposed displacement objectives are not met. This work proposes the control of a chain-type modular robot using an artificial neural network (ANN) that enables the robot to go through different environments. The main contribution of this research is that it uses a software defined radio (SDR) system, where the Wi-Fi channel with the best signal-to-noise Ratio (SNR) is selected to send the information regarding the simulated movement parameters and obtained by the controller to the modular robot. This allows for faster communication with fewer errors. In case of a disconnection, these parameters are stored in the simulator, so they can be sent again, which increases the tolerance to communication failures. Additionally, the robot sends information about the average angular velocity, which is stored in the cloud. The errors in the ANN controller results, in terms of the traveled distance and time estimated by the simulator, are less than 6% of the real robot values.Keywords: artificial neural network (ANN); modular robot; software defined radio (SDR); signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) 59ce067264
