Intelligent student assessment and coaching interface to web-based education-oriented intelligent experimentation on robot supported laboratory set-ups

Motuk, Halil Erdem
This thesis presents a framework for an intelligent interface for the access of robotsupported remote laboratories through the Internet. The framework is composed of the student assessment and coaching system, the experimentation scenario, and the associated graphical user interface. Student assessment and coaching system is the main feature of a successful intelligent interface for use during remote experimentation with a robot-supported laboratory setup. The system has a modular structure employing artificial neural networks and a fuzzy-rule based decision process to model the student behaviour, to evaluate the performance and to coach him or her towards a better achievement of the tasks to be done during the experimentation. With an experimentation scenario designed and a graphical user interface, the system is applied to a robotic system that is connected to the Internet for the evaluation of the proposed framework. Illustrative examples for the operation of the each module in the system in the context of the application are given and sensitivity analysis of the system to the change in parameters is also done. The framework is then applied to a mobile robot control laboratory. The user interface and the experimentation scenario is developed for the application, and necessary modifications are made to the student assessment and coaching system in order to support the experiment.


Intelligent learning system for online learning
Serçe, Fatma Cemile; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Jain, Lakhmi (2008-10-01)
The paper presents an Adaptive Intelligent Learning System (AILS) designed to be used with any Learning Management System (LMS). The adaptiveness provides uniquely identifying and monitoring the learner's learning process according to the learner's profile. AILS has been implemented as a multi-agent system. The agents were developed as JADE agents. The paper presents the learning model, system components, agent behavior in learner scenarios, the ontologies used in agent communications, and the adaptive stra...
Implementation of a wireless streaming system for universal multimedia access
Ünal, Halim Ünsem; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
This thesis describes a universal multimedia access system and its implementation details. In the context of this document, universal multimedia access means accessing multimedia content over ubiquitous computer networks, using different computing platforms. The computer networks involve both wired and wireless networks, and computing platforms involve wired PC, mobile PC and personal digital assistants (PDA). The system is built on a client/server architecture. Video data is H.263 coded and carried over RT...

Target-environment networks provide a conceptual framework for the analysis and prediction of complex regulatory systems such as genetic networks, eco-finance networks or sensor-target assignments. These evolving networks consist of two major groups of entities that are interacting by unknown relationships. The structure and dynamics of the hidden regulatory system have to be revealed from uncertain measurement data. In this paper, the concept of fuzzy target-environment networks is introduced and various f...
Representing temporal knowledge in connectionist expert systems
Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (1996-09-27)
This paper introduces a new temporal neural networks model which can be used in connectionist expert systems. Also, a Variation of backpropagation algorithm, called the temporal feedforward backpropagation algorithm is introduced as a method for training the neural network. The algorithm was tested using training examples extracted from a medical expert system. A series of experiments were carried out using the temporal model and the temporal backpropagation algorithm. The experiments indicated that the alg...
Interacting fuzzy multimodel intelligent tracking system for swift target manoeuvres
Gokkus, L; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Tekinalp, Ozan (1997-09-11)
This paper focuses on the generation of an intelligent tracker module equipped with a wavelet based neural network that learns predictions from past experience. The perception of actual tar et manoeuvre and prediction of its future states are achieved in this work by "projecting" actual observations into decision spaces of local fuzzy predictions based on independent prototypical trajectory types: linear, parabolic and square root type trajectory. Decentralized tracking decisions are thus generated which ar...
