Due to significant advancements in optical navigation technology, optical mouse sensors (OMS) are increasingly employed as low-cost motion sensora in personal computing and robot navigation. This paper proposes a new test bed to study the long-term measurement characteristics of emerging OMS devices. With the utilization of this set-up, the attributes of a high-resolution OMS (Agilent ADNS-2051) are investigated under various critical operating conditions like changing surface velocity and the pattern. The paper illustrates that despite the problems addressed, the positioning accuracy of an OMS could be quite sufficient for some basic process control apptications.

A novel approach for robot homing
Koku, Ahmet Buğra; WİLKES, D Mitch (2003-06-27)
Although metric navigation techniques have been widely adapted in robot navigation, some powerful qualitative navigation methods have been proposed to achieve navigation. These methods do not require strict metric measures or presence of metric maps. This paper briefly introduces such qualitative navigation techniques and introduces a novel approach for qualitative robot navigation. Comparison of this method to some existing ones is given and performance analysis is presented. This technique requires less a...
An Efficient fuzzy fusion-based framework for surveillance applications in wireless multimedia sensor networks
Sert, Seyyit Alper; Yazıcı, Adnan; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
Previous advances in Information Technologies and especially in Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems, have made the Production and deployment of tiny, battery-powered nodes communicating over wireless links possible. Networks comprised of such nodes with sensing capability are called Wireless Sensor Networks. The early deployment aim was to use these nodes only in a passive way for indoor applications. These kinds of early nodes had the ability to sense scalar data such as temperature, humidity, pressure and lo...

Gökalp, Mert Onuralp; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2015)
The technological advancements in Internet of Things (IoT) domain have enabled us to reshape the physical world through smart devices, sensors and actuators. The data collected by IoT devices has become a valuable asset to extract knowledge about the environment and other nearby devices. Existing IoT applications mostly store collected data in a central server and allow users to query stored data to notice and react to changes in the environment. Usually cloud and big data technologies are utilized in those...
A Novel Neural Network Architecture for Radar Clutter Classification
Eraslan, Berna; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer; Tanık, Yalçın (2020-01-01)
In recent years, potential capabilities of modern radars have become tremendous, with rapid advances in electronics and software technologies. If the radar system processes received echoes based on clutter characteristics, detection performance significantly improves. To classify clutters, neural network structures are studied. A problem specific architecture, specialized in clutter classification, is designed. The design procedure of the neural network is explained with necessary theoretical background inf...
A comparative evaluation of adaptive and non-adaptive Sliding Mode, LQR & PID control for platform stabilization

During the uniform locomotion of compliant legged robots and other terrain vehicles, the body of the robot often exhibits complex oscillations which may have a disturbing effect on onboard sensors. For a camera mounted on such a robot, due to perspective projection, the effects of angular disturbances are particularly pronounced as compared to translational disturbances. This paper is motivated by the particular problem of legged robots exhibiting angular body motions and attempts to evaluate the performanc...
