Driver Aggressiveness Detection Using Visual Information from Forward Camera
Kumtepe, Omurcan; Akar, Gözde; Yuncu, Enes (2015-08-28)
Among the human related factors, aggressive driving behavior is one of the major causes of traffic accidents [17]. On the other hand, detection and characterization of driver aggressiveness is a challenging task since there exist different psychological causes behind it. However information about the driver behavior could be extracted from the data that is collected via different sensing devices. This paper presents a method to detect driver aggressiveness using only visual information provided by forward c...
Children's Perceptions and Definitions of Family in China, Ecuador, Turkey, and the United States
Qiu, Wei; Schvaneveldt, Paul L.; Şahin, Volkan (2013-09-01)
With rapid economic development and modernization, changes may be occurring among younger generations in regard to their attitudes towards family life and marriage. This research project is a cross-cultural comparison of how the broader social and cultural contexts have impacted the ways children perceive and define family functions, family structure, and roles within families. The sample included a total of 231 children aged 5 to 12 years and their parents from four countries: China, Ecuador, Turkey, and t...
Probabilistic aggregation strategies in swarm robotic systems
Soysal, O; Şahin, Erol (2005-06-10)
In this study, a systematic analysis of probabilistic aggregation strategies in swarm robotic systems is presented. A generic aggregation behavior is proposed as a combination of four basic behaviors: obstacle avoidance, approach, repel, and wait. The latter three basic behaviors are combined using a three-state finite state machine with two probabilistic transitions among them. Two different metrics were used to compare performance of strategies. Through systematic experiments, how the aggregation performa...
Child protection and welfare: cultures, policies, and practices
Welbourne, Penelope; Dixon, John (2016-11-01)
Child protection and welfare have become international issues in a globalized world. Ideas about childhood and the upbringing of children vary widely, depending upon the prevailing economic, socio-cultural, religious, and political contexts. These have had dramatic effects on the way societies value children, and the role acquired by the state in their protection and advancing their well-being. Children, however, remain at risk. They are placed at risk by the breakdown of extended family systems as a result...
