This study aims to experimentally investigate the feasibility of discriminating human motions with the help of micro-Doppler features by using radar. In the first phase of the work, the synthetic data is generated through the human walking simulator by V. Chen and different time-frequency transformations are applied on the data. In the following phase, several field experiments are conducted and the experimental data for running, crawling, creeping and walking with the aspect angles of 0 degrees, 30 degrees, 60 degrees are collected and spectrograms are obtained. Lastly, six features, which are torso frequency, bandwidth of the signal, offset of the signal, bandwidth without micro-Dopplers, the standard deviation of the signal strength, the period of the arms or legs motions are extracted from the spectrograms and the efficiencies of the features in motion classification are compared.

The Application of micro doppler features in target classification
Topuz Alemdaroğlu, Özge; Yıldırım, Nevzat; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This study aims to experimentally investigate the feasibility of discriminating human motions with the help of micro Doppler features by using radar. In this work, the human walking simulator by V. Chen is examined and is modified according to requirements of the study. Then, the time-frequency distributions to obtain the spectrograms of human motions are examined and the Wigner Ville Distribution and Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT) are chosen for the application. After the simulation studies, experimen...
A generative model for multi class object recognition and detection
Ulusoy, İlkay (2006-01-01)
In this study, a generative type probabilistic model is proposed for object recognition. This model is trained by weakly labelled images and performs classification and detection at the same time. When test on highly challenging data sets, the model performs good for both tasks (classification and detection).
Binalarda Güneş Kontrol Yöntemlerinin Optimizasyon Temelli Performans Değerlendirilmesi
Gürsel Dino, İpek (2017-01-01)
Bu çalışmada, binalarda farklı güneş kontrol yöntemlerinin karşıtlaştırmalı analizini, bir genetik optimizasyon algoritması ile destekleyen bir tasarım aracı ve yöntem, önerilmektedir. Çalışmada ilk olarak farklı cam alternatifleri ve sıklıkla kullanılan bazı standart gölgeleme yöntemlerinin oluşturduğu sekiz senaryo geliştirilmiştir. Ardından bu senaryolar, örnek bir bina tasarımı üstünde uygulanarak genetik optimizasyon algoritması uygulanmıştır. Algoritma, pencere büyüklüklerini ve gölgelik boyut paramet...
The impact of a third language on executive control processes
Cedden, Gülay; Sağın Şimşek, Sultan Çiğdem (2014-12-01)
This study aims to investigate whether the representation of a third language in the mind provides an advantage in executive control processes compared to bilinguals. To this end 10 high proficient bilingual Turkish-English and 10 high proficient trilingual Turkish-English-German speakers were given a language control demanding task and participants' response times (RTs) and the accuracy of their responses were analyzed. The results showed that the bilingual group responded to their L2 (English) statistical...
