CoMoRAT: A Configurable All Terrain Mobile Robot

With the encouraging support coming from various funding agencies and increasing potential of mobile robot use in our daily lives, research in this field has been on the rise during last two decades. Areas of possible applications being vast, researchers feel the need for robots of different capabilities and size. Despite the wide spectrum of applications developed for mobile robots, mobile platforms available on the market for research purposes have been very few in number, and very limited in their capability for multi-purpose use. However, for many researchers, purchasing a new robot for different applications is not a realistic alternative. The research presented in this paper is driven with the urge of creating a modular mobile platform that is suitable for wide range of applications. Ease of installing new payload and ability to ride on wheels, tracks or both are the major design requirements. The developed robot is referred to as CoMoRAT (Configurable Mobile Robot for All Terrain Applications). The robot's design process and performance tests run on the manufactured platform are introduced in this paper.


Design of a configurable all terrain mobile robot platform
Bayar, Gökhan; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan (2009-10-01)
With the increased funding from various agencies, research conducted in the field of mobile robotics has significantly increased during the last couple of decades. Due to wide range of applications mobile robots of different sizes and capabilities are required in the field. Despite the wide spectrum of applications to be developed for mobile robots, available platforms on the market for research purposes are very few in number, and limited in their capability for multi-purpose use. Evidently purchasing new ...
Exploring behavior change features for mobile workout applications
ÜNAL, Perin; Cavdar, Seyma Kucukozer; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Eren, Pekin Erhan; IYENGAR, Sriram (2017-08-23)
With the rapid emergence of mobile technologies in recent years, mobile health (m-health) has become fundamental to healthcare. Persuasion strategies and behavior change support features are widely used in m-health applications to increase the effectiveness of these applications on users. However, in the literature, there is a lack of research to analyze the current situation of m-health applications particularly from the perspective of behavior change approaches. In this study, the workout applications in ...
ORganizational adoption of mobile communication technologies
Arpaci, Ibrahim; Yardimci, Yasemin; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Türetken, Özgür (null; 2012-01-01)
This study aims to identify important adoption factors for mobile communication technologies in private sector organizations. Grounded in the Diffusion of Innovation Theory, Porter's Competitive Forces Model and the Technology-Organization-Environment Framework, we develop an integrated model to study the determinants of organizational adoption of mobile communication technologies. Data will be collected from middle and senior managers using a mixed-method approach. Identification of the organizational adop...

With the developing technology and the power of sensors, 3D data has started to be used in almost every field. Point clouds detected with LIDAR sensors or obtained by sampling 3D meshes have begun to come to the fore in many areas from autonomous driving to data visualization, from generating new data and mesh to classifying detected 3D objects. Machine learning and deep learning techniques are widely used to make sense of this produced data and to implement various applications. In this work, we propose ne...
An Efficient graph-theoretical approach for interactive mobile image and video segmentation
Şener, Ozan; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Over the past few years, processing of visual information by mobile devices getting more affordable due to the advances in mobile technologies. Efficient and accurate segmentation of objects from an image or video leads many interesting multimedia applications. In this study, we address interactive image and video segmentation on mobile devices. We first propose a novel interaction methodology leading better satisfaction based on subjective user evaluation. Due to small screens of the mobile devices, error ...
