Investigation into robot-assisted rehabilitation systems, and robot-assisted systems that are capable of detecting and then modifying the rehabilitation task to have gained momentum in recent years. In this paper, our aim is to distinguish whether the subject is under-challenged or over-challenged using psychophysiological signal data collected from biofeedback sensors while executing the tasks with RehabRoby. Initially, features are extracted from the physiological signals (Blood Volume Pulse (BVP), Skin Conductance (SC), and Skin Temperature (ST)). The extracted features are examined in terms of their contribution to the classification of the overstressed/over-challenged, boredom/under-challenged using variance analysis (ANOVA). The most significant features are selected, and various classification methods are used to classify overstressed/over-challenged, boredom/under-challenged.


Effect of orientation map accuracy on fingerprint classification using PCA-MSOM
Erol, Ali; Halıcı, Uğur (2000-01-01)
Fingerprint classification forms an important problem to be solved in identification system and there are various approaches for the solution. In any pattern classification system the most important part is the feature extraction process. For fingerprints orientation map forms the most common and promising feature to be used for classification. In this paper two different orientation map extraction algorithm are compared to find the one that gives the most reliable features for the PCA-MSOM classifier.
Classification of fMRI Data by Using Clustering
Moğultay, Hazal; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2015-05-19)
Recognition of the the cognitive states by using functional Magnetic Rezonans Imaging (fMRI) data is a challenging problem that has been a focus of scientific research for a long time. In this study the effectiveness of clustering and the ensemble learning techniques on fMRI dataset is investigated and different paramaters are compared. Moreover, the performance of these techniques are tested on both raw voxel intensity values and meshes formed by multiple voxels. Clusters are compared to the functional bra...
Design of an Optimal Sliding Mode Controller for an Active Suspension Considering Non-linear Quarter Car Model
Sadeghi-Khaneghah, Farshid; Bayar, Kerem; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2020-7-26)
A non-linear quarter car model is used in this study for developing a control algorithmfor an active suspension system. The control method used, is optimal sliding modecontrol, along with feedback linearization technique for compensating the non-linearaspects of the plant. In addition to the work in recent literature that applies thesecontrol methods, estimation of the static suspension deflection, i.e., vehicle sprungmass is performed. Through simulation results, it is shown that correct information ofv...

The main drive upon which this study relies is to introduce a prescriptive accident prevention model to avoid work related accidents by predicting outcomes of work-related accidents in pipeline construction with using machine learning algorithms. In depth study on construction accidents is crucial due to construction being one of the most hazardous industry and being temporary in nature. To come up with a prescriptive accident prevention model, all incident reports from a pipeline project were analysed and ...
Understanding driving vengeance from the scope of basic individual values
Ergin, Uluğhan; Öz, Bahar; Demirutku, Kürşad; Department of Psychology (2021-3-8)
The present study aims to investigate the driving vengeance behavior from the scope of basic individual values for the first time in the literature. Values as guiding principles of individuals have been studied in relation to various behaviors. However, the current study is the first study to use the refined theory of basic individual values for the investigation of driving aggression. In the present study, a total of 226 drivers (98 male, 128 female) have participated. Demographic questions were directed t...
