Localization and tracking objects or people in real time in indoor environments have gained great importance. In the literature and market, many different location estimation and tracking solutions using received signal strength indication (RSSI) are proposed. But there is a lack of information on the comparison of these techniques revealing their weak and strong behaviors over each other. There is a need for the answer to the question; “which localization/tracking method is more suitable to my system needs?”. So, one purpose of this thesis is to seek the answer to this question. Hence, we investigated the behaviors of commonly proposed localization methods, mainly nearest neighbors based methods, grid based Bayesian filtering and particle filtering methods by both simulation and experimental work on the same test bed. The other purpose of this thesis is to propose an improved method that is simple to install, cost effective and moderately accurate to use for real life applications. Our proposed method uses an improved type of sampling importance resampling (SIR) filter incorporating automatic calibration of propagation model parameters of logv distance path loss model and RSSI measurement noise by using reference tags. The proposed method also uses an RSSI smoothing algorithm exploiting the RSSI readings from the reference tags. We used an active RFID system composed of 3 readers, 1 target tag and 4 reference tags in a home environment of two rooms with a total area of 36 m². The proposed method yielded 1.25 m estimation RMS error for tracking a mobile target.

Visual detection and tracking of moving objects
Ergezer, Hamza; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this study, primary steps of a visual surveillance system are presented: moving object detection and tracking of these moving objects. Background subtraction has been performed to detect the moving objects in the video, which has been taken from a static camera. Four methods, frame differencing, running (moving) average, eigenbackground subtraction and mixture of Gaussians, have been used in the background subtraction process. After background subtraction, using some additional operations, such as morpho...
3d object recognition by geometric hashing for robotics applications
Hozatlı, Aykut; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
The main aim of 3D Object recognition is to recognize objects under translation and rotation. Geometric Hashing is one of the methods which represents a rotation and translation invariant approach and provides indexing of structural features of the objects in an efficient way. In this thesis, Geometric Hashing is used to store the geometric relationship between discriminative surface properties which are based on surface curvature. In this thesis surface is represented by shape index and splash where shape ...
Detection and tracking of dim signals for underwater applications
Ermeydan, Esra Şengün; Demirekler, Mübeccel; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Detection and tracking of signals used in sonar applications in noisy environment is the focus of this thesis. We have concentrated on the low Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) case where the conventional detection methods are not applicable. Furthermore, it is assumed that the duty cycle is relatively low. In the problem that is of concern the carrier frequency, pulse repetition interval (PRI) and the existence of the signal are not known. The unknown character of PRI makes the problem challenging since it means...
Implementation and Evaluation of Age-Aware Downlink Scheduling Policies in Push-Based and Pull-Based Communication
Oğuz, Tahir Kerem; Ceran Arslan, Elif Tuğçe; Uysal, Elif; Girici, Tolga (2022-5-01)
As communication systems evolve to better cater to the needs of machine-type applications such as remote monitoring and networked control, advanced perspectives are required for the design of link layer protocols. The age of information (AoI) metric has firmly taken its place in the literature as a metric and tool to measure and control the data freshness demands of various applications. AoI measures the timeliness of transferred information from the point of view of the destination. In this study, we exper...
