Evaluation of egocentric navigation methods

Koku, Ahmet Buğra
In describing routes humans make use of egocentric references to landmarks. In this paper two different egocentric navigation algorithms are introduced and possible variations of these algorithms are compared. These algorithms make use of solely angular distribution information of landmarks around the robot. Possible improvements and uses of these algorithms are discussed. In the evaluation of these algorithms computer simulations are used. The result of this work is expected to provide pointers for the ongoing research which aims to address navigation of robots based on qualitative interaction between humans and robots.

This text dwells on and manifests the methodological significance of utopianism for the practices of the urban, and specifically architecture, building upon the core definitions made by Ruth Levitas in delineating utopia as method. It surveys various manners of architectural utopianisms - but not architectural utopias themselves - in their broadest sense, to identify the main tendencies of this methodology throughout the twentieth century.
Spatial organization of service activities in ankara
Levent, Tolga; Günay, Baykan; Department of City and Regional Planning (2007)
In the last decades, the spatial organization of services has become a key issue in the urban planning literature. The basic reasons for this significance are the difficulties not only in understanding this complex and context-dependent organization, but also in developing planning interventions for this organization. Moreover, author believes that the existing theoretical frameworks have some inabilities in interpreting the spatial organization at the intra-metropolitan scale. Therefore, this study basical...
Regional aspects of public transport mobility: Izmir urban region case
Şenbil, Metin; Yetişkul Şenbil, Emine; Özuysal, Mustafa (2022-01-01)
Accessibility can be defined as easiness in reaching locations by means of transportation and its infrastructure. It is a physical characteristic revealing (relative) attractiveness of a location. Mobility, on the other hand, is a real-life counterpart of potentials produced by accessibility, with spatial behavioural dimensions considering socio-economic, cultural and demographic characteristics. For example, different aspects of trip-making behaviour is an important aspect of mobility. This study deals wit...
Spatial analysis of mass housing areas in Düzce
Oylum, Gökçe; Uzun, Cemile Nil; Department of City and Regional Planning (2010)
In literature on residential areas, the settlement pattern is analyzed starting from their first apperance. In the pre-industrial city was no specialization of land use, the urban layout was relatively irregular, the street markets, shops, workshops and homes being mixed together. However, after industrialization for cities there was a need for housing supply and these were mostly supplied by blocks around working areas. All of these settlements were not healthy and efficient. So with regulations and polici...
Urban transportation: sections at minus
Erol, Ezgi; Sargın, Güven Arif; Department of Architecture (2010)
This thesis focuses on the underground transportation forms that began to emerge in city centers in the second half of the 20th century. Besides providing an illustration and evaluation of the selected case projects, the notions of speed and time are opened for discussion as significant concepts that interact to affect the physical formations both of cities and transport policies. The developments in urban transport technologies after the 1960s are also examined as leading factors in the development of toda...
