Classification and Recommendation With Data Streams

Abstract
Nowadays, with the exponential growth of data stream sources (e.g., Internet of Things [IoT], social networks, crowdsourcing platforms, and personal mobile devices), data stream processing has become indispensable for online classification, recommendation, and evaluation. Its main goal is to maintain dynamic models updated, holding the captured patterns, to make accurate predictions. The foundations of data streams algorithms are incremental processing, in order to reduce the computational resources required to process large quantities of data, and relevance model updating. This article addresses data stream knowledge processing, covering classification, recommendation, and evaluation; describing existing algorithms/techniques; and identifying open challenges.

Design, Modeling, and Simulation of a Wing Sail Land Yacht

Abstract
Autonomous land yachts can play a major role in the context of environmental monitoring, namely, in open, flat, windy regions, such as iced planes or sandy shorelines. This work addresses the design, modeling, and simulation of a land yacht probe equipped with a rigid free-rotating wing sail and tail flap. The wing was designed with a symmetrical airfoil and dimensions to provide the necessary thrust to displace the vehicle. Specifically, it proposes a novel design and simulation method for free rotating wing sail autonomous land yachts. The simulation relies on the Gazebo simulator together with the Robotic Operating System (ROS) middleware. It uses a modified Gazebo aerodynamics plugin to generate the lift and drag forces and the yawing moment, two newly created plugins, one to act as a wind sensor and the other to set the wing flap angular position, and the 3D model of the land yacht created with Fusion 360. The wing sail aligns automatically to the wind direction and can be set to any given angle of attack, stabilizing after a few seconds. Finally, the obtained polar diagram characterizes the expected sailing performance of the land yacht. The described method can be adopted to evaluate different wing sail configurations, as well as control techniques, for autonomous land yachts.
