Blind channel identification methods and channel order estimation

n this paper, we consider three blind channel estimation methods. Cross-relation (CR), subspace (SS) and least squares smoothing (J-LSS) methods are compared for single-input multi-output (SIMO) systems. In contrast to the previous works, we evaluate the practical MSE performances of these methods for short data lengths and random channels when the number of channels is greater than two. Some previously unknown characteristics of these methods are presented. A novel method for blind channel order estimation is presented and it is integrated to the SS and CR methods. The performance of this approach is compared with different methods. It is shown that the new approach has significantly better performance and it is robust to a variety of factors in practical applications.


Temporal watermarking of digital video
Koz, A; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2003-04-11)
A video watermarking method is presented, based on the temporal sensitivity of Human Visual System (HVS). The method exploits the temporal contrast thresholds of HVS to determine the spatio-temporal locations, where the watermark should be embedded, and the maximum strength of watermark, which still gives imperceptible distortion after watermark insertion. The robustness results indicate that the proposed scheme survives video distortions, such as additive Gaussian noise, ITU H.263+ coding at medium bit rat...
Video Shot Boundary Detection by Graph-theoretic Dominant Sets Approach
Asan, Emrah; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2009-09-16)
We present a video shot boundary detection algorithm based on the novel graph theoretic concept, namely dominant sets. Dominant sets are defined as a set of the nodes in a graph, mostly similar to each other and dissimilar to the others. In order to achieve this goal, candidate shot boundaries are determined by using simply pixelwise differences between consequent frames. For each candidate position, a testing sequence is constructed by considering 4 frames before the candidate position and 2 frames after t...

In this paper optimum design of frames is discussed. Specifically, minimum weight design of steel frames in the elastic range of material behaviour is treated. The solution algorithm is designed and programmed for use on micro-computers to suit a design office environment. Stress and slenderness constraints are considered, however displacement constraints may readily be implemented. Three examples are given and the results are discussed.
Linearization and optimization of robot dynamics via inertial parameter design
Soylu, Reşit (1996-08-01)
In this article, the concept of linearity number (LN) is introduced to measure the ''linearity'' of the equations of motion of a serial manipulator. This number is computable in closed-form and is an average quantitative index of the degree of linearity of the robot over a specified region in the joint space. The definition is flexible, allowing the user to create custom-made definitions according to his or her specific needs. Using the concept of LN and the developed computer package CADLOR, one can design...
Forced Response Prediction of Constrained and Unconstrained Structures Coupled Through Frictional Contacts
Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Menq, Chia-Hsiang (ASME International, 2009-03-01)
In this paper, a forced response prediction method for the analysis of constrained and unconstrained structures coupled through frictional contacts is presented. This type of frictional contact problem arises in vibration damping of turbine blades, in which dampers and blades constitute the unconstrained and constrained structures, respectively. The model of the unconstrained/free structure includes six rigid body modes and several elastic modes, the number of which depends on the excitation frequency. In o...
