Sensitivity and error analysis of a differential rectification method for CCD frame cameras and pushbroom scanners

Bettemir, Önder Halis
In this thesis, sensitivity and error analysis of a differential rectification method were performed by using digital images taken by a frame camera onboard BILSAT and pushbroom scanner on ASTER. Three methods were implemented for Sensitivity and Uncertainty analysis: Monte Carlo, covariance analysis and FAST (Fourier Amplitude Sensitivity Test). A parameter estimation procedure was carried out on the basis of so called Mixed Model extended by some suitable additional regularization parameters to stabilize the solution for improper geometrical conditions of the imaging system. The effectiveness and accuracy of the differential rectification method were compared with other rectification methods and the results were analyzed. Furthermore the differential method is adapted to the pushbroom scanners and software which provides rectified images from raw satellite images was developed.


Manual and auto calibration of stereo camera systems
Özuysal, Mustafa; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
To make three dimensional measurements using a stereo camera system, the intrinsic and extrinsic calibration of the system should be obtained. Furthermore, to allow zooming, intrinsic parameters should be re-estimated using only scene constraints. In this study both manual and autocalibration algorithms are implemented and tested. The implemented manual calibration system is used to calculate the parameters of the calibration with the help of a planar calibration object. The method is tested on different in...

An optimisation approach is presented for the problem of reconstructing the permittivity and conductivity profiles of a dielectric slab from the reflected and transmitted field data. The problem is treated as an optimal control problem where the norm of the difference of measured and calculated boundary data is minimised subject to the state equation governing the system. The original constrained optimisation problem is reduced to the evaluation of stationary points of an augmented functional which is obtai...
Quadrature error compensation and its effects on the performance of fully decoupled MEMS gyroscopes
Tatar, Erdinç; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
This thesis, for the first time in the literature, presents the effect of quadrature error compensation on the performance of a fully decoupled MEMS gyroscope and provides experimental data on the sources of quadrature error. Dedicated quadrature error cancellation electrodes operating with only differential DC potentials are designed. Gyroscopes with intentionally placed imperfections are fabricated with SOG based SOI process which provides higher yield and uniformity compared to SOG process. Tests show th...
The Effect of Labeled/Unlabeled Prior Information for Masseter Segmentation
Tabar, Yousef Rezaei; Ulusoy, İlkay (Hindawi Limited, 2013-01-01)
Several segmentation methods are implemented and applied to segment the facial masseter tissue from magnetic resonance images. The common idea for all methods is to take advantage of prior information from different MR images belonging to different individuals in segmentation of a test MR image. Standard atlas-based segmentation methods and probabilistic segmentation methods based on Markov random field use labeled prior information. In this study, a new approach is also proposed where unlabeled prior infor...
Assessment of a frequency-domain linearised Euler solver for turbofan aft radiation predictions and comparison with measurements
Özyörük, Yusuf (2010-03-31)
This paper presents a frequency-domain computational aeroacoustics tool for predicting aft noise radiation through turbofan ducts and jets and its application to two realistic engine exhaust configurations which have been experimentally tested. The tool is based on the discretised axisymmetric form of the linearised Euler equations in conjunction with perfectly matched layer equations at the inlet and far-field boundaries using high-order finite differences. The resultant linear system of equations is inver...
