Etwa fünfzig Kilometer vom südwestlichsten Zipfel von Cornwall entfernt liegen die Scilly-Inseln. Wunderschöne Gärten, Sonnenuntergänge unter Palmen, ein weiter Blick aufs Meer: Die Inselgruppe mitten im Atlantik ist ein wahres Idyll. Und Sergeant Colin Taylor der Mann, der entschlossen einschreitet, wenn die Luft brennt – egal, ob ein Streit zwischen angeheiterten Küchenchefs oder erhitzten Pub-Besuchern entflammt oder jemand einen wuchtigen Anker wegzuschleppen versucht. Auch bei den durchschnittlich drei gestohlenen Fahrrädern im Jahr bleibt der lustige Polizist entspannt, denn: „Wirklich weit kommt man mit dem Diebesgut ja sowieso nicht.“ Mit hinreißendem britischem Witz und Charme schreibt der Scilly Sergeant über seine Abenteuer als Insel-Bobby.

Dynamics and Optimal Control of Road Vehicles

Author: D. J. N. Limebeer,Matteo Massaro

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0192559818

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 480

Dynamics and Optimal Control of Road Vehicles uniquely offers a unified treatment of tyre, car and motorcycle dynamics, and the application of nonlinear optimal control to vehicle-related problems within a single book. This is a comprehensive and accessible text that emphasises the theoretical aspects of vehicular modelling and control. The book focuses on two major elements. The first is classical mechanics and its use in building vehicle and tyre dynamics models. The second focus is nonlinear optimal control, which is used to solve a range of minimum-time and minimum-fuel, as well as track curvature reconstruction problems. As is known classically, all of this material is bound together by the calculus of variations and stationary principles. The treatment of this material is supplemented with a number of examples that were designed to highlight obscurities and subtleties in the theory.

In 2002, just when the kids had finally left home and life was getting a bit easier, Jackie's husband came back from a conference and told her that he wanted to learn to ride a motorbike before he got too old. Jackie was first shocked and then horrified. Having witnessed a tragic bike accident in her early 20's she was very against the idea and tried to talk him out of it. Then slowly she got drawn into the fascinating world of biking and bikers until, overcoming her own fears, she took to the road on two wheels. Full of wry observations about bikers, both on and off bikes, amusing anecdotes and a self mocking account of Jackie's efforts to learn to handle her machine on her ever widening travels, this book shows us that motorbiking is not just about power, speed and big macho men in leathers.

Despite a growing body of research and targeted remediation, teenage and novice drivers continue to be six to nine times more likely to die in a crash than they are when they are just a few years older. The World Health Organization reports that road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death globally among 15 to 19 year olds. In light of these crash statistics, understanding the teen driver problem remains of paramount public health importance around the world. The Handbook of Teen and Novice Drivers: Research, Practice, Policy, and Directions provides critical knowledge for a broad range of potential readers, including students, teachers, researchers in academics, industry and the federal government, public policy makers at all levels, insurance companies and automobile manufacturers, driving instructors, and parents and their teens.

Mr. Gum ist zurück. Und er ist genauso gemein wie eh und je. Vielleicht sogar noch ein ganz kleines bisschen gemeiner als vorher... Jedenfalls hat er sich nun mit Kobolden verbündet, um über das kleine Städtchen Bad Lamonisch an der Bibber herzufallen. Die tapfere Polly und der getreue Freitag machen sich auf, um das zu verhindern. Doch der Weg zum Koboldberg ist weit und dann sind da auch noch drei Prüfungen, die jeder Reisende bestehen muss. Aber Polly wäre nicht Polly, wenn sie sich von solchem Schnickschnack entmutigen ließe, und außerdem gibt es ja auch noch Björn Schneyder und den Geist des Regenbogens, die ihr beistehen...
