Arslan, Dilek
In agent based systems, especially in autonomous mobile robots, modelling the environment and its changes is a source of problems. It is not always possible to effectively model the uncertainity and the dynamic changes in complex, real-world domains. Control systems must be robust to changes and must be able to handle these uncertainties to overcome this problem. In this study, a reactive behaviour based agent control system is modelled and implemented. The control system is tested in a navigation task using an environment, which has randomly placed obstacles and a goal position to simulate an environment similar to an autonomous robot̕s indoor environment. Then the control system was extended to control an agent in a multi-agent environment. The main motivation of this study is to design a control system which is robust to errors and easy to modify. Behaviour based approach with the advantages of fuzzy reasoning systems is used in the system.

A P2P based failure detection model for distributed systems
Kavuklu, Celal; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
A comprehensive failure detection model is proposed to detect service failures in asynchronous distributed systems. The proposed model takes advantage of P2P technology to provide required functionality. When compared to similar studies in failure detection, the presented failure detection model is more autonomous in resolving service dependencies, embodies more flexibility in providing different failure detection functions (like unreliable failure detectors, membership services) and offers more security. A...
A study on conceptual modeling in simulation systems : an extended methodology for KAMA
Aysolmaz Bozlu, Banu E; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2007)
Conceptual modeling is considered to be essential in simulation development activities. However, there are only a few research studies on how to develop conceptual models. One of the important and comprehensive approaches is the methodology developed under the leadership of METU Modeling and Simulation Center (MODSIMMER) for Turkish Armed Forces. The project suggests a methodology to develop mission space conceptual models (GUKAM), and provides a Conceptual Model Development Tool for C4ISR M&S activities, w...
Investigation of the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software on fault-proneness
Gölcük, Halit; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This study investigates the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software, which are observable at the model level of the software developed by means of Unified Modeling Language (UML), on software quality, assessing quality in terms of fault-proneness. In the scope of this thesis study, real-time embedded software components developed by Aselsan, a leading defense industry company in Turkey, were analyzed. The correlation between software metrics measured from the UML models of the soft...
A systematic study of probabilistic aggregation strategies in swarm robotic systems
Soysal, Onur; Şahin, Erol; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
In this study, a systematic analysis of probabilistic aggregation strategies in swarm robotic systems is presented. A generic aggregation behavior is proposed as a combination of four basic behaviors: obstacle avoidance, approach, repel, and wait. The latter three basic behaviors are combined using a three-state finite state machine with two probabilistic transitions among them. Two different metrics were used to compare performance of strategies. Through systematic experiments, how the aggregation performa...
