Angle perception on autostereoscopic displays

Karaman, Ersin
Stereoscopic displays provide 3D vision usually with the help of additional equipment such as shutter glasses and head gears. As a new stereoscopic display technology, autostereoscopic 3D Displays provide 3D vision without additional equipment. Previous studies of depth and distance estimation with autostereoscopic displays indicate the users do not exhibit better performance in 3D. Yet, they claim 3D displays provide higher immersiveness. In this study, perception of the angle of a 3D shape is investigated by comparing 2D, 3D and Real perception cases. An experiment is conducted using an autostereoscopic 3D display. Forty people have participated in the experiment. They were asked to estimate the vertex angle and draw the projections of the object from two different viewpoints. It is found that users can better estimate the angles on a cone when viewed from the top on an autostereoscopic display. This may contribute positively to 3D understanding of the scene. Results revealed that participants make more accurate angle estimation in autostereoscopic 3D displays than in traditional 2D displays. In general, the participants’ angle drawings were slightly higher than their angle estimations. Moreover, the participants overestimated 35, 65 and 90 degree angles and underestimated 115 degree angle in autostereoscopic 3D display.


A complex event processing framework implementation using heterogeneous devices in smart environments
Kaya, Muammer Özge; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Department of Information Systems (2012)
Significant developments in microprocessor and sensor technology make wirelessly connected small computing devices widely available; hence they are being used frequently to collect data from the environment. In this study, we construct a framework in order to extract high level information in an environment containing such pervasive computing devices. In the framework, raw data originating from wireless sensors are collected using an event driven system and converted to simple events for transmission over a...
Geo-spatial object detection using local descriptors
Aytekin, Çağlar; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
There is an increasing trend towards object detection from aerial and satellite images. Most of the widely used object detection algorithms are based on local features. In such an approach, first, the local features are detected and described in an image, then a representation of the images are formed using these local features for supervised learning and these representations are used during classification . In this thesis, Harris and SIFT algorithms are used as local feature detector and SIFT approach is ...
The negative effect of technology-driven product design on user-product interaction and product usability
Gültekin, Pelin; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Department of Industrial Design (2004)
In the last decades, the rapid change and prevalent use of technology are concerning, as they induced effects which mainly altered various encompassing contexts like consumer market dynamics and product development processes. Evidently, these transformations also affect the way users interact with products. It is observed that, technological novelties are applied in the competitive market as a tool for product differentiation. In addition, the rapid development of these technologies is a dominating factor o...
Analysis of narcissus effect in infrared optical systems with cooled detectors
Aslan, Serhat Hasan; Yerli, Sinan Kaan; Department of Physics (2022-7)
Infrared lens design has many aspects similar to visible lens design. Optical aberration types and calculations, tolerancing procedures are applied in the same way in infrared lens design as in the visible lens design. However, there are many design aspects in infrared lens which are very different from visible lens design. One of these aspects is the narcissus effect in infrared lenses utilizing cooled infrared detectors. Narcissus effect is a very well known phenomenon in infrared lens with cooled detecto...
Wavelet-based outlier detection and denoising of airborne laser scanning data
Akyay, Tolga; Karslıoğlu, Mahmut Onur; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2008)
The method of airborne laser scanning also named as LIDAR has recently turned out to be an efficient way for generating high quality digital surface and elevation models. In this work, wavelet-based outlier detection and different wavelet thresholding (wavelet shrinkage) methods for denoising of airborne laser scanning data are discussed. The task is to investigate the effect of wavelet-based outlier detection and find out which wavelet thresholding methods provide best denoising results for post-processi...
