Wilkes, M
In this study, four factors are considered to be important in the interactions between a mobile robot and a human. These factors are robot location, user's prior knowledge about the robot's environment, spatial reasoning ability of the user, and user interfaces. The first objective of this study is to determine if providing a user interface component showing the relative position of the robot with respect to the user results in any improvement. The second objective is to have an overall evaluation of the user interface components.

A systematic study of probabilistic aggregation strategies in swarm robotic systems
Soysal, Onur; Şahin, Erol; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
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...
An experimental investigation of gaze behavior modeling in virtual reality
Esmer, Elif; Çakır, Murat Perit; Acartürk, Cengiz; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2022-11)
The purpose of this study is to investigate if gaze behavior modeling on a robot avatar makes any difference in the engagement of human interlocutors. To that end, visual interaction patterns and impressions of participants during a one-on-one active conversation setting in the form of a mock-up job interview with an avatar agent have been analyzed. Experiments were conducted through eye-tracking methodology, questionnaires, and open-ended post-experimental evaluations. A robot avatar as an artificial agent...
Comparison of Cognitive Modeling and User Performance Analysis for Touch Screen Mobile Interface Design
Ocak, Nihan; Çağıltay, Kürşat (Informa UK Limited, 2016-12-23)
The aim of this study is to analyze and comparatively evaluate the usability of touch screen mobile applications through cognitive modeling and end-user usability testing methodologies. The study investigates the accuracy of the estimated results of a cognitive model produced for touch screen mobile phone interfaces. A mobile wallet application was chosen as the mobile software. The CogTool modeling tool was used as the cognitive modeling method. Eight tasks were determined and user tests were conducted in ...
Computational modeling of coupled cardiac electromechanics incorporating cardiac dysfunctions
Berberoglu, Ezgi; Solmaz, H. Onur; Göktepe, Serdar (Elsevier BV, 2014-11-01)
Computational models have huge potential to improve our understanding of the coupled biological, electrical, and mechanical underpinning mechanisms of cardiac function and diseases. This contribution is concerned with the computational modeling of different cardiac dysfunctions related to the excitation-contraction coupling in the heart. To this end, the coupled problem of cardiac electromechanics is formulated through the conservation of linear momentum equation and the excitation equation formulated in th...
Organizational adoption of mobile communication technologies
Arpacı, İbrahim; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2013)
The purpose of this study is to identify the key adoption factors for mobile communication technologies, specifically smartphones, at private sector organizations. We have proposed a comprehensive research model based on the Diffusion of Innovation theory, Institutional theory, and Technology-Organization-Environment framework. Sequential explanatory design mixed method research strategy, which incorporates quantitative and qualitative approaches was used in this research. A Structural Equation Model was us...
