To afford or not to afford: A new formalization of affordances toward affordance-based robot control
Şahin, Erol; Dogar, Mehmet R.; UĞUR, Emre; Üçoluk, Göktürk (SAGE Publications, 2007-01-01)
The concept of affordances was introduced by J. J. Gibson to explain how inherent "values" and "meanings" of things in the environment can be directly perceived and how this information can be linked to the action possibilities offered to the organism by the environment. Although introduced in psychology, the concept influenced studies in other fields ranging from human-computer interaction to autonomous robotics. In this article, we first introduce the concept of affordances as conceived by J. J. Gibson an...
To Simulate or Not to Simulate? Challenges in Digitally Prototyping HMI Interactive Technologies
Yardim Sener, Sevcan; Pedgley, Owaın Francıs (2020-01-01)
© 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.This study of automotive HMI (human-machine interface) design is built around the fact that traditional product modelling and testing tools (i.e. foam-clay mock-ups, working prototypes) are increasingly being replaced by simulation technologies. The development of these technologies creates challenges as well as opportunities for product design teams. This study was carried out as a workshop to understand these challenges. A shortlist of fourteen new in-vehicle interac...
How to follow a rule : practice based rule following in Wittgenstein
Adanalı, Yurdagül Kılınç; Ergüden, Akın; Department of Philosophy (2005)
Rule following is a central concept in the philosophy of Wittgenstein who was one of the pioneers of modern philosophy. Wittgenstein criticizes the traditional concepts of rule, because they were vague, ambiguous, and idealized. He thinks that it is not possible to isolate rules from practice and that a rule takes its meaning in a certain context or in practice. Wittgenstein̕s concept of rule following is closely related to a set of concepts: internal relation, understanding, criterion. These concepts expla...
To Recall to Play in the Street: A Critical Review of the Transformation of the Game Concept, Importance and Place of Game in Children's World
Taneri, Pervin Oya; Nayir, K. Funda (2016-01-01)
This argumentative study focused on the relationship between children's traditional play cultures and their technology-based play. When the literature examined, it was seen that traditional games contribute children character development, as well as linguistic and communicative development. When children allowed to play outdoor and/or traditional games, they explore the nature, learn democratic behaviors, acquire creative and critical thinking skills, learn how to communicate politely with others, develop m...
