In this thesis we introduce the robotic device ROMI together with its control architecture, the musical state representation and focus on parameter estimation for imitation of duo players by ROMI. ROMI is aimed at jointly playing two instruments that belong to two different classes and improvises while assisting others in an orchestral performance. A new improvisation algorithm based on parameter estimation process for the imitation control is introduced. This new improvisation algorithm adds the capability of velocity control and polyphonic music processing on top of existing improvisation algorithms. The musical state representation we have developed for controlling ROMI is a feature extractor for learning to imitate human players in a duet. ROMI’s intelligent control architecture also has the ability to provide sample owners’ identification and performance training.

A new improvisation algorithm based on parameter estimation process for the imitation control of a robotic acoustic musical device '' ROMI '', is presented in this paper. The musical state representation we have developed for controlling ROMI is a feature extractor for learning to imitate human players in a duet. ROMI ' s intelligent control architecture also has the ability to provide player identification and performance training. In this paper we introduce the robotic device ROMI together with its contro...
Momentum transfer continuum between preshape and grasping based on fluidics
Özyer, Barış; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
This dissertation propose a new fluidics based framework to determine a continuum between preshaping and grasping so as to appropriately preshape a multi-fingered robot hand for creating an optimal initialization of grasp. The continuum of a hand preshape closing upon an object that creates an initial object motion tendency of the object based on the impact moment patterns generated from the fingers is presented. These motion tendencies should then be suitable for the proper initiation of the grasping task....
Imitation of human body poses and hand gestures using a particle based fluidics method
Tilki, Umut; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this thesis, a new approach is developed, avoiding the correspondence problem caused by the difference in embodiment between imitator and demonstrator in imitation learning. In our work, the imitator is a fluidic system of dynamics totally different than the imitatee, which is a human performing hand gestures and human body postures. The fluidic system is composed of fluid particles, which are used for the discretization of the problem domain. In this work, we demonstrate the fluidics formation control s...
Implementation of a closed-loop action generation system on a humanoid robot through learning by demonstration
Tunaoğlu, Doruk; Şahin, Erol; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis the action learning and generation problem on a humanoid robot is studied. Our aim is to realize action learning, generation and recognition in one system and our inspiration source is the mirror neuron hypothesis which suggests that action learning, generation and recognition share the same neural circuitry. Dynamic Movement Primitives, an efficient action learning and generation approach, are modified in order to fulfill this aim. The system we developed (1) can learn from multiple demonstr...
DELAYED DETACHED-EDDY SIMULATION BASED PREDICTIONS OF BOUNDARY LAYER TRANSITION AND CAVITY FLOW NOISE
Yalçın, Özgür; Özyörük, Yusuf; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2021-11-1)
This dissertation investigates the boundary layer transition as well as the cavity flow noise prediction capabilities of a high-order in-house solver using various Delayed Detached-Eddy Simulation (DDES) frameworks. Before conducting the simulations, multiblock topology with a high-order overset grid technique is implemented into the solver, which makes mesh generation for complex geometries, such as the tunnel grids around blade sections, and cavity grids composed of two separate domains of the studied cas...
