Optimization of Speed Control Hump Profiles

Ünlüsoy, Yavuz Samim
In this study, the goal attainment method is implemented for the optimization of speed control hump profiles. Basic dimensions for a number of hump profile functions are optimized for single vehicles classified in five categories and for a specified distribution of these vehicles. Objective functions are selected as combinations of the longitudinal and vertical acceleration components at pre-specified points on the vehicle body. The main objective is to minimize vehicle response functions below the hump crossing speed limit and to maximize them above the speed limit. Typical characteristics of a series of two axle vehicles, described by the half car model, are used and the performances of various hump profiles are assessed.


Analyses of factors affecting acceptance of homecare technologies by patients with chronic diseases
Kutlay, Ayşegül; Mumcuoğlu, Ünal Erkan; Department of Medical Informatics (2012)
In this study, the factors affecting the acceptance of mobile homecare system were examined. These factors were assessed by taking Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) as a theoretical model. The main feature of this thesis (differing from the other studies in the literature) is that the user acceptance study model is analyzed on a system that is not realized yet. So, this study has two dfferent perspectives. The first one is the examination the results of UTAUT for a system in the des...
Extending Correlation Filter-Based Visual Tracking by Tree-Structured Ensemble and Spatial Windowing
Gundogdu, Erhan; Özkan, Huseyin; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-11-01)
Correlation filters have been successfully used in visual tracking due to their modeling power and computational efficiency. However, the state-of-the-art correlation filter-based (CFB) tracking algorithms tend to quickly discard the previous poses of the target, since they consider only a single filter in their models. On the contrary, our approach is to register multiple CFB trackers for previous poses and exploit the registered knowledge when an appearance change occurs. To this end, we propose a novel t...
Optimization of suspension parameters to improve impact harshness of road vehicles
Aydin, Mert; Ünlüsoy, Yavuz Samim (2012-05-01)
This paper illustrates the development and implementation of a parameter optimization methodology to improve impact harshness (IH) of road vehicles. A full ADAMS model of a small commercial vehicle is used as the IH test vehicle. The methodology involves the use of design of experiments methods together with response surface methodology. Significant design parameters affecting IH of the vehicle are first determined by the screening experiments. Once the critical parameters are identified, they are optimized...
Algorithm Overview and Design for Mixed Effects Models
Koca, Burcu; Gökalp Yavuz, Fulya (2021-06-06)
Linear Mixed Model (LMM) is an extended regression method that is used for longitudinal data which has repeated measures within the individual. It is natural to expect high correlation between these repeats over a period of time for the same individual. Since classical approaches may fail to cover these correlations, LMM handles this significant concern by introducing random effect terms in the model. Besides its flexible structure in terms of modeling, LMM has several application areas such as clinical tri...
SDIVA: Structural Delay Insensitivity Verification Analysis Method for Bit-Level Pipelined Systolic Arrays with Early Output Evaluation
Ismailoglu, A. Neshn; Askar, Murat (2008-09-05)
A structural delay-insensitivity verification analysis method, SDIVA, is proposed for asynchronous systolic arrays in dual-rail threshold logic style. The SDIVA method employs symbolic delays for all output evaluation paths and works at the behavioral specification level. For bit-level pipelined systolic arrvys, which have data-dependent early output evaluation in one-dimension, SDIVA method reduces the verification analysis task to examination of three adjacent systoles so that by analyzing all possible ea...
