Accidental falls threaten the lives of people over 65 years of age and can be overcome with quick action for saving lives. Old people who live alone and those who have chronic diseases constitute the main risk groups. Fast and effective detection of falls will increase the quality of life of these people. In this study, using accelerometers together with a video sensor, a multi-modal fall detection mechanism is proposed and its performance has been evaluated. The results indicate that an accelerometer triggered video processing method will minimize the processing costs together with privacy related issues.


An approach to investigate relationship between speed and safety on urban arterials
Ardiç Eminağa, Zerrin; Akyılmaz, M. Özdemir; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
Traffic safety is an important problem in today’s world with increasing number of fatalities and injuries in traffic accidents. For the solution of this problem, determination of accident prone locations on a network and reasons behind is an essential step, which is studied to some extend via different traffic accident analyses in the literature. While major factors affecting accident risk, such as speed, congestion, infrastructural aspects are known, it is still very difficult to figure out the interaction...
A Macrolevel tabu-search based approach to determine the major factors in built environment-traffic safety relationship
Alişan, Onur; Babalık, Ela; Department of City and Regional Planning (2021-3-05)
Traffic crashes are a significant contributing factor to fatalities globally, with an increasing pace of crashes occurring in urban areas. Thus, this study aims to analyze the relationship between urban built environment and traffic safety (BE-TS) to reveal the factors that threaten TS so that they could be avoided in early planning phases. BE was operationalized through the D-classification (e.g., density and diversity) whereas, TS was operationalized through varying crash categories (e.g., severity) and r...
Investigating the effects of lightweight recycled bumper and chassis system on vehicle crashworthiness
Gürer, Batuhan; Esat, Volkan; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2016-8)
Accidents are one of the main reasons of death for people across the globe, among which automobile accidents are a major portion resulting in fatalities and various injuries. Crashworthiness is an engineering concept that is used to analyse the ability of vehicle structure to cover and protect passengers in the case of an accident or impact. Crashworthiness aims to affect the design of the structure of the vehicle so that it absorbs as much energy as it can which is sustained from an impact by plastic...
Design, analysis and experimental study of a novel side thorax impactor to be used in pedestrian protection tests for flat front vehicles
Saraç Karadeniz, Sevgi; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2021-10)
Pedestrian protection is crucial and the vehicle manufacturers put more and more effort to make vehicles safer for pedestrians in case of pedestrian involved accidents. Injuries and fatalities are very frequent and severe in pedestrian involved accidents because the pedestrians are much more vulnerable when compared to the vehicle occupants as they do not have any protection like airbags or seatbelts. The current pedestrian protection regulations focus on the tests of bonnet type passenger cars for the head...
A Multimodal Approach for Aggressive Driving Detection
Kumtepe, Omurcan; Yuncu, Enes; Akar, Gözde (2016-05-19)
Aggressive driving behavior is among the important causes of traffic accidents. Hence, detection of driver aggressiveness has an importance in terms of decreasing the number of traffic accidents. Collected driving data while the vehicle is in traffic can be used to make inferences about the aggressiveness of the driver. In this study, a multimodal method is proposed in order to detect driver aggressiveness. The proposed method is based on utilizing the visual data taken from the on vehicle camera and sensor...
