Introduction of RGB-D sensors together with the efforts on open-source point-cloud processing tools boosted research in both computer vision and robotics. One of the key areas which have drawn particular attention is object recognition since it is one of the crucial steps for various applications. In this paper, two spatially enhanced local 3D descriptors are proposed for object recognition tasks: Histograms of Spatial Concentric Surflet-Pairs (SPAIR) and Colored SPAIR (CoSPAIR). The proposed descriptors are compared against the state-of-the-art local 3D descriptors that are available in Point Cloud Library (PCL) and their object recognition performances are evaluated on several publicly available datasets. The experiments demonstrate that the proposed CoSPAIR descriptor outperforms the state-of-the-art descriptors in both category-level and instance-level recognition tasks. The performance gains are observed to be up to 9.9 percentage points for category-level recognition and 16.49 percentage points for instance-level recognition over the second-best performing descriptor.

High performance readout electronics for uncooled infrared detector arrays
Yıldırım, Ömer Özgür; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
This thesis reports the development of high performance readout electronics for resistive microbolometer detector arrays that are used for uncooled infrared imaging. Three different readout chips are designed and fabricated by using a standard 0.6 m CMOS process. Fabricated chips include a conventional capacitive transimpedance amplifier (CTIA) type readout circuit, a novel readout circuit with dynamic resistance nonuniformity compensation capability, and a new improved version of the CTIA circuit. The fabr...
A novel fault tolerant architecture on a runtime reconfigurable FPGA
Coşkuner, İbrahim Aydın; Güran, Hasan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
Due to their programmable nature, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) offer a good test environment for reconfigurable systems. FPGAs can be reconfigured during the operation with changing demands. This feature, known as Runtime Reconfiguration (RTR), can be used to speed-up computations and reduce system cost. Moreover, it can be used in a wide range of applications such as adaptable hardware, fault tolerant architectures. This thesis is mostly concentrated on the runtime reconfigurable architectures. C...
FPGA implementation of field oriented control forpermanent magnet synchronous motor
Irmak, Gizem; Saranlı, Afşar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
The thesis study focuses on the fully operational FPGA implementation for the current/torque control of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor. 3-phase synchronous motors with permanent magnets can be categorized into two categories as Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) and Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motor. The main difference between PMSM and BLDC is the shape of the induced back-EMF voltage. While BLDC motors have trapezoidal shaped back-EMF, PMSMs have a sinusoidal back-EMF. In order to take ad...
Design and FPGA implementation of hash processor
Şiltu, Çelebi Tuğba; Aşkar, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, an FPGA based hash processor is designed and implemented using a hardware description language; VHDL. Hash functions are among the most important cryptographic primitives and used in the several fields of communication integrity and signature authentication. These functions are used to obtain a fixed-size fingerprint or hash value of an arbitrary long message. The hash functions SHA-1 and SHA2-256 are examined in order to find the common instructions to implement them using same hardware blo...
