Road detection by mean shift segmentation and structural analysis
Dursun, Mustafa; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
Road extraction from satellite or aerial images is a popular issue in remote sensing. Extracted road maps or networks can be used in various applications. Normally, maps for roads are available in geographic information systems (GIS), however these informations are not being produced automatically. Generally they are formed with the aid of human. Road extraction algorithms are trying to detect the roads from satellite or aerial images with the minimum in-teraction of human. Aim of this thesis is to analyze ...
Traffic climate, driver behaviour, and accidents involvement in China
Chu, Wenhui; Wu, Chaozhong; Atombo, Charles; Zhang, Hui; Özkan, Türker (2019-01-01)
Traffic Climate Scale (TCS) and Positive Driver Behaviours Scale (PDBS) are new measurement tools. The study aims to translate the TCS and PDBS into Chinese and to assess their factor structures in a large sample of licensed motor vehicle drivers in China. A further aim is to investigate the effects of TCS factors on drivers' behaviours and traffic accidents involvement. Data were collected using an online survey. Participants were 887 fully licensed motor vehicle drivers, including 531 males and 356 female...
Road network extraction from high-resolution multi spectral satellite images
Karaman, Ersin; Çetin, Yasemin; Department of Information Systems (2012)
In this thesis, an automatic road extraction algorithm for multi-spectral images is developed. The developed model extracts elongated structures from images by using edge detection, segmentation and clustering techniques. The study also extracts non-road regions like vegetative fields, bare soils and water bodies to obtain more accurate road map. The model is constructed in a modular approach that aims to extract roads with different characteristics. Each module output is combined to create a road score map...
