OBJECT RECOGNITION AND LOCALIZATION WITH ULTRASONIC-SCANNING

KIRAGI, H
Ersak, Aydın
In this paper an object recognition and localization system based on ultrasonic range imaging to be used in optically opaque environments is introduced. The system is especially designed for robotics applications. The ultrasonic image is acquired by scanning ultrasonic transducers in two dimensions above the area where objects are located. The features that are used for recognition and localization processes are extracted from the outermost boundaries of the objects present in the input scene. Experimental results concerning the applications are presented.

Snapshot spectral imaging enables to reconstructspectral images from a multiplexed single-shot measurement.Since an inversion is required to form the spectral images com-putationally, quantitative characterization of their performanceis essential to optimize the design. In this paper, we analyze theoptimal design of a snapshot spectral imaging technique. Thissnapshot multi-spectral imaging technique uses a diffractive lenscalled generalized photon sieve, and vari...

Yildirim, Ihsan Ozan; ÖZKAN, VEDAT ALİ; Idikut, Firat; Takan, Taylan; ŞAHİN, ASAF BEHZAT; Altan, Hakan (2014-09-23)
Due to the limited number of array detection architectures in the millimeter wave to terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum, imaging schemes with scan architectures are typically employed. In these con fi gurations the interplay between the frequencies used to illuminate the scene and the optics used play an important role in the quality of the formed image. Using a multiplied Schottky-diode based terahertz transceiver operating at 340 GHz, in a stand-o ff detection scheme; the e ff ect of image q...
3D object recognition from range images
İzciler, Fatih; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
Recognizing generic objects by single or multi view range images is a contemporary popular problem in 3D object recognition area with developing technology of scanning devices such as laser range scanners. This problem is vital to current and future vision systems performing shape based matching and classification of the objects in an arbitrary scene. Despite improvements on scanners, there are still imperfections on range scans such as holes or unconnected parts on images. This studyobjects at proposing an...

Ozbey, Burak; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Kurç, Özgür; ALTINTAŞ, AYHAN; DEMİR, Hilmi Volkan (2016-11-01)
In this paper, simultaneous multi-point wireless sensing is proposed and demonstrated via multiple sensors in nested split-ring resonator (NSRR) geometry coupled to a single illuminator antenna. In this passive multi-point sensing system, each probe in the sensor array is assigned a non-overlapping spectral interval for frequency shift in response to local mechanical loading around a unique operating resonance frequency in the band of the antenna. Here, it is shown that the antenna is capable of capturing t...
