In this thesis, the Test Driven Development method (TDD) is studied for use in developing embedded software. The required framework is written for the development environment Rhapsody. Integration of TDD into a classical development cycle, without necessitating a transition to agile methodologies of software development and required unit test framework to apply TDD to an object oriented embedded software development project with a specific development environment and specific project conditions are done in this thesis. A software tool for unit testing is developed specifically for this purpose, both to support the proposed approach and to illustrate its application. The results show that RhapUnit supplies the required testing functionality for developing embedded software in Rhapsody with TDD. Also, development of RhapUnit is a successful example of the application of TDD.

Implementation of an 8-bit microcontroller with system c
Kesen, Lokman; Aşkar, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, an 8-bit microcontroller, 8051 core, is implemented using SystemC programming language. SystemC is a new generation co-design language which is capable of both programming software and describing hardware parts of a complete system. The benefit of this design environment appears while developing a System-on-Chip (SoC), that is a system consisting both custom hardware parts and embedded software parts. SystemC is not a completely new language, but based on C++ with some additional class libra...
A hierarchical object localization and image retrieval framework
Uysal, Mutlu; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
This thesis proposes an object localization and image retrieval framework, which trains a discriminative feature set for each object class. For this purpose, a hierarchical learning architecture, together with a Neighborhood Tree is introduced for object labeling. Initially, a large variety of features are extracted from the regions of the pre-segmented images. These features are, then, fed to the training module, which selects the "best set of representative features", suppressing relatively less important...
An evaluation of aspect-oriented programming for embedded real-time systems
Kartal, Yusuf Bora; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Crosscutting concerns are the issues in software that cannot be modularized within a software module. In this thesis work, a detailed evaluation of the use of Aspect Oriented Programming for the implementation of crosscutting concerns in embedded real-time systems is presented. The pilot Audio Switch project implementations are first evaluated in terms of software quality attributes. Then a detailed analysis of the two implementations, according to embedded real-time performance metrics has been carried out...
Direct perception of traversibility affordance on range images through learning on a mobile robot
Uğur, Emre; Şahin, Erol; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, we studied how physical affordances of the environment, such as traversibility for a mobile robot, can be learned. In particular, we studied how the physical properties of the environment, as acquired from range images obtained from a 3D laser scanner mounted on a mobile robot platform, can specify the traversibility affordance. A physics based simulation environment is used during exploration trials, where the traversibility affordances and the relevant features for each behavior are learne...
Resource based plan revision in dynamic multi-agent environments
Erdoğdu, Utku; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Planning framework is commonly used to represent intelligent agents effectively and to model complex behavior. In planning framework, resource-based perspective is interesting in the sense that in a multi-agent environment, exchange of resources can form a cooperative interaction. In resource based plan coordination, each agent constructs an individual plan, then plans are examined by a central plan revision unit for possibilities of removing actions. Domain of this work is the classical postmen domain that...
