Reshaping human intention in Human-Robot Interactions by robot moves A comparative analysis of HMM and OOM methods
Durdu, Akif; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Yilmaz, Alper (John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2019-01-01)
This paper outlines the methodology and experiments associated with the reshaping of human intentions based on robot movements within Human-Robot Interactions (HRIs). Although studies on estimating human intentions are wel...
Exact kalman filtering of respiratory motion
Çetinkaya, Mehmet; Akgun, Sami Alperen; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (2018-10-01)
In this paper we propose a novel Exact Kalman Filter for state estimation of quasi-periodic signals such as respiratory motion. Nonlinear functions of interest are approximations as truncated Fourier series. Instead of rel...
Estimating and reshaping human intention via human robot interaction
DURDU, AKİF; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (2016-01-01)
Human robot interaction (HRI) is studied in two important research areas, intention estimation and intention reshaping. Although there are many studies in the literature that define human intention, new research examines t...
Fluid swarm formation control for hand gesture imitation by ellipse fitting
TİLKİ, Umut; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2015-03-19)
The main focus of this reported work is to imitate human hand gestures in the presence of the organ matching problem. Towards this aim, a case where the imitator is a fluidic system is adopted, whose dynamics are totally d...
Prioritized Mobile Robot Exploration Based on Percolation Enhanced Entropy Based Fast SLAM
Karahan, Murat; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (2014-09-01)
The major aim in search and rescue using mobile robots is to detect and reach trapped survivors and to support rescue operations through disaster environments. Our motivation is based on the fact that a search and rescue (...
Elastic Networks in Reshaping Human Intentions by Proactive Social Robot Moves
Gorur, O. Can; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (2014-08-29)
This paper focuses on reshaping a previously detected human intention into a desired one, using contextual motions of mobile robots, which are in our applications, autonomous mobile 2-steps stairs and a chair. Our system f...
Momentum Transfer from Preshape to Grasping
Ozyer, Baris; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-08-01)
A fully immersed object, suspended in water can be rotated from distance by a preshaped robot hand approaching and closing upon the object prior to contacting it. Momentum transfer from robot fingers closing into a grasp, ...
A novel multirobot map fusion strategy for occupancy grid maps
Topal, Sebahattin; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (2013-01-01)
In this paper, we consider the problem of merging partial occupancy grid environment maps, which are extracted independently by individual robot units during search and rescue (SAR) operations in complex disaster environme...
IMITATION OF HUMAN BODY POSES BY THE FORMATION CONTROL OF A FLUIDIC SWARM
Tilki, Umut; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (2012-07-04)
Imitation learning is one of the forms of social learning that enables the human or robot agents to learn new skills. The knowledge acquired for imitation can be basically represented as action mapping based on "organ matc...
Improvisation Based on Imitating Human Players by a Robotic Acoustic Musical Device
Aydin, Kubilay K.; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (2011-10-21)
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 ...
