The commercial interest in proximity services is increasing. Application examples include location-based information and advertisements, logistics, social networking, file sharing, etc. In this paper, we consider positioning of devices based on time series proximity reports from a mobile device to a network node. This corresponds to nonlinear measurements with respect to the device position in relation to the network nodes. Therefore, particle filtering is applicable for positioning. Positioning performance is evaluated in a typical office area with Bluetooth-low-energy beacons deployed for proximity detection and report. Accuracy is concluded to vary spatially over the office floor, and in relation to the beacon deployment density.


Radar resource allocation optimization in phased array radar systems
Serbest, İzzet; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
The demand for enhanced radar technologies has grown while mission requests have become more complex. Development of Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Technologies has created enormous functional achievements. Development of radar platforms has led to the radar resource allocation issues and adaptive Radar Resource Management (RRM) studies for Multi-Function Radars. Combining the functionality of different tasks in one special device also makes resource allocation process more challenging due to it...
ORganizational adoption of mobile communication technologies
Arpaci, Ibrahim; Yardimci, Yasemin; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Türetken, Özgür (null; 2012-01-01)
This study aims to identify important adoption factors for mobile communication technologies in private sector organizations. Grounded in the Diffusion of Innovation Theory, Porter's Competitive Forces Model and the Technology-Organization-Environment Framework, we develop an integrated model to study the determinants of organizational adoption of mobile communication technologies. Data will be collected from middle and senior managers using a mixed-method approach. Identification of the organizational adop...
Location recommendation for groups on location-based social networks
Teoman, Hüseyin Alper; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2022-1-31)
In research and business areas, location-based services have become a trending subject. With the increasing popularity of social networks and online communities, group recommendation systems arise in order to support users to interact with those having similar interests, and to provide recommendations for joint activities, such as eating out as a group or seeing a movie with friends. However, the techniques and approaches to provide recommendations to groups are limited, as most of the available studies foc...
A density-aware, energy- and spectrum efficient scheduling model for dynamic networks
Mollahasani, Shahra; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
Future mobile networks have to be densified by employing small cells to handle the upsurge in traffic load. Although the amount of energy each small cell consumes is low, the total energy consumption of a large-scale network may be enormous. To enhance the energy efficiency, we have to adapt the number of active base stations to the offered traffic load. Deactivating base stations may cause coverage holes, degrade the quality of service and throughput while redundant base stations waste energy. That is why ...
Satellite linked sensor networks for planetary scale monitoring
AKSOY, Demet; Aksoy, Ayşegül (2004-09-29)
Sensor networks continue to attract significant interest in various research communities. An individual sensor system can provide important observations within a local area. However, local observations alone are not sufficient for some applications that require a global coverage. In this paper we introduce our interdisciplinary project PLASMA (PLAnetary Scale Monitoring Architecture). PLASMA aims at providing an integrated platform for in-situ and remote sensing. Our focuses include environmental monitoring...
