We present a survey of transport methods for 3-D video ranging from early analog 3DTV systems to most recent digital technologies that show promise in designing 3DTV systems of tomorrow. Potential digital transport architectures for 3DTV include the DVB architecture for, broadcast and the Internet Protocol (IP) architecture for wired or wireless streaming. There are different multiview representation/compression methods for delivering the 3-D experience which provide a tradeoff between compression efficiency, random access to views, and ease of rate adaptation, including the "video plus-depth" compressed representation and various multiview video coding (MVC) options. Commercial activities using these representations in broadcast and IP streaming have emerged, and successful transport of such data has been reported. Motivated by the growing impact of the Internet protocol based media transport technologies, we focus on the ubiquitous Internet as the network infrastructure of choice for future 3DTV systems. Current research issues in unicast and multicast mode multiview video streaming include network protocols such as DCCP and peer-to-peer protocols, effective congestion control, packet loss protection and concealment, video rate adaptation, and network/service scalability. Examples of end-to-end systems for multiview video streaming have been provided.


Optimal Cavities to Enhance Free-space Matching in Solar Cells
Karaosmanoglu, B.; Topcuoglu, U.; Guler, S.; Tuygar, E.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2018-08-04)
In this paper, we present design and numerical simulations of nano-cavities for free space matching in solar cells at optical frequencies. The cavity designs are inspired by the wellknown antenna geometries that are commonly used at radio and microwave frequencies. Using such designs that have not been explored before in the context of solar cells, the electromagnetic mismatch between solar-cell surfaces and vacuum is significantly reduced, in comparison to planar interfaces and those with the conventional ...
3D Object Modeling by Structured Light and Stereo Vision
Ozenc, Ugur; Tastan, Oguzhan; GÜLLÜ, MEHMET KEMAL (2015-05-19)
In this paper, we demonstrate a 3D object modeling system utilizing a setup which consists of two CMOS cameras and a DLP projector by making use of structured light and stereo vision. The calibration of the system is carried out using calibration pattern. The images are taken with stereo camera pair by projecting structured light onto the object and the correspondence problem is solved by both epipolar constraint of stereo vision and gray code constraint of structured light. The first experimental results s...
Nonlinear 3D Modeling and Vibration Analysis of Horizontal Drum Type Washing Machines
Baykal, Cem; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit (2020-01-01)
In this study, a nonlinear 3-D mathematical model for horizontal drum type washing machines is developed considering rotating unbalance type excitation. Nonlinear differential equations of motion are converted into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations by using Harmonic Balance Method (HBM). The resulting nonlinear algebraic equations are solved by using Newton’s method with arc-length continuation. Several case studies are performed in order to observe the effects of orientation angles of springs and damp...
Architectural Design in Virtual Reality and Mixed Reality Environments: A Comparative Analysis
Ergün, Oğuzcan; Akın, Şahin; Gürsel Dino, İpek; Sürer, Elif (2019-01-01)
Virtual reality (VR) provides a completely digital world of interaction which enables the users to modify, edit, and transform digital elements in a responsive way. Mixed reality (MR), which is the result of blending the digital world and the physical world together, brings new advancements and challenges to human, computer and environment interactions. This paper focuses on adapting the already-existing methods and tools in architecture to both VR and MR environments under sustainable architectural design ...
Spatial 3D local descriptors for object recognition in RGB-D images
Loğoğlu, K. Berker; Temizel, Alptekin; Kalkan, Sinan; Department of Information Systems (2016)
Introduction of the affordable but relatively high resolution color and depth synchronized RGB-D sensors, along with the efforts on open-source point-cloud processing tools boosted research in both computer vision and robotics. One of the key areas which have drawn particular attention is object recognition since it is one of the crucial steps for various applications. In this thesis, two spatially enhanced local 3D descriptors are proposed for object recognition tasks: Histograms of Spatial Concentric Surf...
