Feedback motion planning of a novel fully actuated unmanned surface vehicle via sequential composition of random elliptical funnels
Özdemir, Oğuz; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-12-27)
This thesis proposes and analyzes a motion planning and control schema for unmanned surface vehicles that fuses sampling-based approaches’ probabilistic completeness with closed-loop approaches’ robustness. The Proposed schema is based on the sequential composition of elliptical funnels, and it consists of two stages: tree generation and motion control. For validation of the approach, we carried out experiments using both simulation and physical setup besides the mathematical analysis. In order to have a co...

Take-make-dispose behaviours as the basis of the linear economy model are challenged by the sustainable modes of consumption that aim to minimise the use of raw materials and waste production. The most prominent among these is the circular economy model, which resembles the production and consumption cycles to a living system, and proposes alternative systems where there is no such thing as waste but only food for another within the system (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2015). Therefore, the aim is to protect...
Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control With Predicted Vehicle Information: Development and Evaluation
Kılıç, Furkan; Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-8)
Using cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC), it is possible for a platoon of vehicles to travel safely while increasing the traffic throughput and reducing the fuel consumption. Specifically, the maximization of the traffic throughput and the minimization of the fuel consumption is best supported by a constant spacing policy (CSP). In addition, driving safety requires the attenuation of any disturbances through the vehicle platoon, which is captured by the notion of string stability. In order to realiz...
Pseudo-Dynamic Testing, Performance Assessment, and Modeling of Deficient Reinforced Concrete Frames
Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Binici, Barış (2014-09-01)
A pair of half-scale, three-story, three-bay concrete bare frames were tested by the pseudo-dynamic (PsD) testing procedure. Both frames represent common deficiencies. of non-seismic construction. Continuous column reinforcement in one specimen and insufficient lap splices at the bottom ends of columns in the other specimen were the only significant differences. Measured seismic performances of both frames were assessed by using the rotation and strain-based acceptance criteria of two different seismic code...
Serious leisure, motivation, experience value and behavioral intentions in charity sport event context
Yazıcı, Tub; Koçak, M. Settar,; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2020)
Charity sport events are valuable in terms of both actively enjoying leisure time, obtaining amazing experiences, and fundraising for a nonprofit organization, thus serving a meaningful purpose. Charity sporting events need a specific research focus apart from other sporting events because “cause” and “activity” at hand have a direct and mutual effect on the interest and commitment of individuals to the event (Filo et al., 2009). A model integrating key variables from the studies of serious leisure, charity...
