Coalgebraic models, Prototyping, and Higher-order programming
Construction and observation are two basic notions in Computer Science corresponding to precise dual mathematical concepts: those of algebra and coalgebra. This paper introduces a simple coalgebraic model for concurrent processes and discusses its animation in the declarative language Charity. It is argued that the ability to reason in an uniform way about data and behaviour, provides an unifying approach to functional prototyping of software speci cations.
This book provides a comprehensive review of emerging rapid prototyping technologies, such as bioprinting, for biomedical applications. Rapid prototyping, also known as additive manufacturing, solid freeform fabrication, or 3D printing, can be used to create complex structures and devices for medical applications from solid, powder or liquid precursors. Sections explore a variety of materials, look at applications, and consider the use of rapid prototyping technologies for constructing organs. With its distinguished editor and international team of renowned contributors, this book is a useful, technical resource for scientists and researchers in academia, biomaterials and tissue regeneration.

Internet of Things, Design, Prototyping, IoT hardware development platforms, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi
The dramatic drop in the price of computing hardware, coupled with the recent breakthroughs in embedded systems design that enabled the integration of high-level software and low-level electronics, have created a paradigm shift in embedded systems development. This has led to the development of different varieties of user-friendly Internet of Things (IoT) hardware development platforms for IoT prototyping. The ubiquity of such prototyping platforms has undoubtedly contributed towards the explosive growth of the IoT, which is already seeping into all areas of human endeavor, including transportation, logistics, business, and healthcare. Building IoT projects that can be controlled over the Internet can be challenging, especially for beginners. This chapter discusses the design and development of prototypes for IoT applications with focus on Arduino and Raspberry Pi platforms. The aim is to provide insightful information on best practices for designing and prototyping IoT projects, as well as to serve as step-by-step guidelines for beginners.

In the industry is very common the applying of resources and machines for implementation of the processes and creation of the products. For this reason, the measurement and control of such processes are essential to achieve better performance, efficiency, and consequently best quality, as well as, monitor the operation of the equipment, identify failures and ensure the security for the industry and the employees. The measure instruments are the set of tools used with the objective of obtaining data about the particular processes. In general, these devices measure features like pressure, temperature, velocity, humidity, vibration, and are widely applied in machines such as motors, heaters, reactors, refrigerators, air conditioners, compressors, ovens, and other equipment. It’s important to obtain the periodic calibration of these instruments so that the results obtained through them be reliable and accurate .
