This volume includes ten chapters that detail advances in engineering research. Chapter One reviews Digital Image Processing and their application in quality control of parts fabricated via Additive Manufacturing. Chapter Two offers methods to reach a high valorization of different agro-industrial wastes, promoting the development of sustainable processes. Chapter Three discusses how piezoelectric sensing devices are used in many different applications. Chapter Four highlights a significant application of machine learning approaches in electrical transmission systems. Chapter Five describes the derivation of a set of equations that can be used to compute the inverse kinematic for the UR5 robot. Chapter Six details the evolution of cognitive radio networks. Chapter Seven investigates energy harvesting from a functionally graded plate with a piezoelectric patch under nonlinear vibrations. Chapter Eight presents an analysis for piezoelectric energy harvesting from the nonlinear vibration of a functionally graded piezoelectric beam subjected to random vibrations. Chapter Nine discusses the evolution of the next generation of operating systems. Lastly, Chapter 10 discusses the characteristics of a sectional electroelastic actuator for nanomechatronics.
