Cihan, Ibrahim Kivanc; Senel, Hakan Gueray (2007-06-07)
A new corner detection algorithm based on the topological median filter is proposed. Topological quasi dilation and erosion operators with circular structuring element are used to detect the corners on gray level images.
Topological Navigation Algorithm Design and Analysis Using Spherical Images
Şahin, Yasin; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2022-8-23)
A topological navigation algorithm that has the capability of mapping and localization based on visual contents is proposed. Keypoint detection and feature matching are conducted on spherical images to extract significant features among sequential frames. Robot movement direction is estimated based on historical angle differences of significant features to reach the final destination. The navigation process is supported with visual egocentric localization to gain simultaneous localization and mapping compet...
Marginalized particle filters for Bayesian estimation of Gaussian noise parameters
Zhao, Yuxin; Yin, Feng; Gunnarsson, Fredrik; Amirijoo, Mehdi; Özkan, Emre; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2010-07-26)
The particle filter provides a general solution to the nonlinear filtering problem with arbitrarily accuracy. However, the curse of dimensionality prevents its application in cases where the state dimensionality is high. Further, estimation of stationary parameters is a known challenge in a particle filter framework. We suggest a marginalization approach for the case of unknown noise distribution parameters that avoid both aforementioned problem. First, the standard approach of augmenting the state vector w...
Shape recognition with generalized beam angle statistics
Tola, OO; Arica, N; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2004-04-30)
In this study, we develop a new shape descriptor and matching algorithm in order to find a given template shape in an edge detected image without performing boundary extraction. The shape descriptor based on Generalized Beam Angle Statistics (GBAS) defines the angles between the lines connecting each boundary point with the rest of the points, as random variable. Then, it assigns a feature vector to each point using the moments of beam angles. The proposed matching algorithm performs shape recognition by ma...
Radar target detection in non-gaussian clutter
Doyuran, Ülkü; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this study, novel methods for high-resolution radar target detection in non-Gaussian clutter environment are proposed. In solution of the problem, two approaches are used: Non-coherent detection that operates on the envelope-detected signal for thresholding and coherent detection that performs clutter suppression, Doppler processing and thresholding at the same time. The proposed non-coherent detectors, which are designed to operate in non-Gaussian and range-heterogeneous clutter, yield higher performanc...
