Participatory sensing is an approach which allows mobile devices such as mobile phones to be used for data collection, analysis and sharing processes by individuals. Data collection is the first and most important part of a participatory sensing system, but it is time consuming for the participants. In this paper, we discuss automatic data collection approaches for reducing the time required for collection, and increasing the amount of collected data. In this context, we explore automated text recognition on images of store receipts which are captured by mobile phone cameras, and the correction of the recognized text. Accordingly, our first goal is to evaluate the performance of the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) method with respect to data collection from store receipt images. Images captured by mobile phones exhibit some typical problems, and common image processing methods cannot handle some of them. Consequently, the second goal is to address these types of problems through our proposed Knowledge Based Correction (KBC) method used in support of the OCR, and also to evaluate the KBC method with respect to the improvement on the accurate recognition rate. Results of the experiments show that the KBC method improves the accurate data recognition rate noticeably.

SWARM-based data delivery in Social Internet of Things
Hasan, Mohammed Zaki; Al-Turjman, Fadi (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-01)
Social Internet of Things (SIoTs) refers to the rapidly growing network of connected objects and people that are able to collect and exchange data using embedded sensors. To guarantee the connectivity among these objects and people, fault tolerance routing has to be significantly considered. In this paper, we propose a bio-inspired particle multi-swarm optimization (PMSO) routing algorithm to construct, recover and select k-disjoint paths that tolerates the failure while satisfying quality of service (QoS) ...
Face recognition using Eigenfaces and neural networks
Akalın, Volkan; Severcan, Mete; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
A face authentication system based on principal component analysis and neural networks is developed in this thesis. The system consists of three stages; preprocessing, principal component analysis, and recognition. In preprocessing stage, normalization illumination, and head orientation were done. Principal component analysis is applied to find the aspects of face which are important for identification. Eigenvectors and eigenfaces are calculated from the initial face image set. New faces are projected onto ...

Internet of Things (IoTs) refers to the rapidly growing network of connected objects that are able to collect and exchange data using embedded sensors. To guarantee the connectivity among these objects and devices, fault tolerant routing has been received a significant attention in recent years. In this paper, we propose a bio-inspired particle multi-swarm optimization (PMSO) routing algorithm to construct, recover and select k-disjoint paths that tolerates the failure while satisfying quality of service (Q...
Organizational adoption of mobile communication technologies
Arpacı, İbrahim; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2013)
The purpose of this study is to identify the key adoption factors for mobile communication technologies, specifically smartphones, at private sector organizations. We have proposed a comprehensive research model based on the Diffusion of Innovation theory, Institutional theory, and Technology-Organization-Environment framework. Sequential explanatory design mixed method research strategy, which incorporates quantitative and qualitative approaches was used in this research. A Structural Equation Model was us...
