Platform motion disturbances decoupling by means of inertial sensors for a motion stabilized gimbal

Mutlu, Deniz
In this study, a method is developed to overcome platform motion based disturbances resulting from kinematic and dynamic interactions between platform and gimbal system. The method is confined to using underlying non-linear relations in order to increase performance of the system in nearly all of its motion envelope. Sensor requirements and measurements methods are also stated for the developed method. In order to simulate real system conditions, an identification procedure is applied on the system whose outputs are later integrated into system mode. After development of the proposed disturbance rejection algorithm, wide range of simulations are performed to assess its performance with realistic data obtained from an intended base vehicle. Remarkable increases in disturbance rejection in different scenarios are obtained through simulations which indicates promising results for real life application.


Visual servoing for target tracking using a non-linear 2 degree of freedom system
Bilgin, Bahadır; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
In this study, swing up and stabilization of on/off type of cold gas thruster driven inverted pendulum is accomplished. First, pulse width modulator (PWM) design method is generated to obtain quasi-linear thrust output from on/off type of thruster. Than, single axis angle controller is designed. Designed angle controller and PWM scheme are tested and verified on single axis angle control test setup. Finally, an other freedom is attached to single axis test setup and rotary inverted pendulum (Furuta Pendulum...
Camera motion blur and its effect on feature detectors
Üzer, Ferit; Saranlı, Afşar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Perception, hence the usage of visual sensors is indispensable in mobile and autonomous robotics. Visual sensors such as cameras, rigidly mounted on a robot frame are the most common usage scenario. In this case, the motion of the camera due to the motion of the moving platform as well as the resulting shocks or vibrations causes a number of distortions on video frame sequences. Two most important ones are the frame-to-frame changes of the line-of-sight (LOS) and the presence of motion blur in individual fr...
Control of constrained spatial three-link flexible manipulators
KILIÇASLAN, SİNAN; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Ider, S. Kemal (2007-06-29)
This study deals with the force and motion control of a spatial three-link articulated manipulator with flexible second and third links. In order to reduce the complexity of the dynamic equations each link is modelled as if unconnected and the joint connections are expressed as constraint equations. Then the joint forces are eliminated and the number of equations is reduced by substituting the acceleration level constraint equations into the dynamic equations. The dynamic equations are partitioned as pseudo...
Angular acceleration assisted stabilization of a-2 DOF gimbal platform
Öztürk, Taha; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis work construction of the angular acceleration signal of a 2-DOF gimbal platform and use of this signal for improving the stabilization performance is aimed. This topic can be divided into two subtopics, first being the construction of angular acceleration and the second being the use of this information in a way to improve system performance. Both problems should be tackled in order to get satisfactory results. The most important output of this work is defined as the demonstration of the impr...
Sliding mode control for non-linear systems with adaptive sliding surfaces
Durmaz, Burak; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; SALAMCİ, METİN UYMAZ (2012-02-01)
This study covers the sliding mode control design with adaptive sliding surfaces for a class of affine non-linear systems, which can be described by (x) over dot = A(x)x + B(x)u + f(x) + d(x, t). The main streamline of the study is the sliding surface design for such systems. The sliding surfaces are designed to be moving with varying slopes and offsets. The varying sliding surface parameters are determined by solving the state-dependent Riccati equations online during the control process. Thus, the sliding...
