In this paper we focus on the effect of different interface designs on the performance and cognitive workload of sensor operators (SO) during a target detection task in a simulated environment. Functional near-infrared (fNIR) spectroscopy is used to investigate whether there is a relationship between target detection performance across three SO interfaces and brain activation data obtained from the subjects’ prefrontal cortices that are associated with relevant higher-order cognitive functions such as attention, response selection and decision making. The preliminary findings of the study suggest that brain regions in the vicinity of medial frontal gyrus of the right hemisphere respond differentially to the cognitive workload induced by different interfaces.

Evaluation of multi target tracking algorithms in the presence of clutter
Güner, Onur; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
This thesis describes the theoretical bases, implementation and testing of a multi target tracking approach in radar applications. The main concern in this thesis is the evaluation of the performance of tracking algorithms in the presence of false alarms due to clutter. Multi target tracking algorithms are composed of three main parts: track initiation, data association and estimation. Two methods are proposed for track initiation in this work. First one is the track score function followed by a threshold c...
Application of design for verification with concurrency controllers to air traffic control software
Betin Can, Aysu; Lindvall, Mikael; Lux, Benjamin; Topp, Stefan (2005-11-11)
We present an experimental study which demonstrates that model checking techniques can be effective in finding synchronization errors in safety critical software when they are combined with a design for verification approach. We apply the concurrency controller design pattern to the implementation of the synchronization operations in Java programs. This pattern enables a modular verification strategy by decoupling the behaviors of the concurrency controllers from the behaviors of the threads that use them u...
Analysis of Face Recognition Algorithms for Online and Automatic Annotation of Personal Videos
Yılmaztürk, Mehmet; Ulusoy Parnas, İlkay; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan (Springer, Dordrecht; 2010-05-08)
Different from previous automatic but offline annotation systems, this paper studies automatic and online face annotation for personal videos/episodes of TV series considering Nearest Neighbourhood, LDA and SVM classification with Local Binary Patterns, Discrete Cosine Transform and Histogram of Oriented Gradients feature extraction methods in terms of their recognition accuracies and execution times. The best performing feature extraction method and the classifier pair is found out to be SVM classification...
Optimization of physical parameters of an underactuated quadrupedal robot
Karagoz, Osman Kaan; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert (2018-01-01)
In this paper, we present the comparison of different optimization algorithms that are used to optimize the parameters of a simulated legged robotic platform. We compare the results obtained by applying different algorithms on the same model and show the relative advantages and disadvantages of these algorithms. The tested algorithms are Particle Swarm Optimization, Binary Coded Genetic Algorithm, Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfrab-Shannon Algorithm and Method of Zoutendijk. We showed that the globally optimal param...
Performance improvement of a 3-D configuration reconstruction algorithm for an object using a single camera image
Özkılıç, Sibel; Platin, Bülent Emre; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
Performance improvement of a 3-D configuration reconstruction algorithm using a passive secondary target has been focused in this study. In earlier studies, a theoretical development of the 3-D configuration reconstruction algorithm was achieved and it was implemented by a computer program on a system consisting of an optical bench and a digital imaging system. The passive secondary target used was a circle with two internal spots. In order to use this reconstruction algorithm in autonomous systems, an auto...
