    • Adaptive control design for nonlinear systems via successive approximations 

      Babaei, N.; Salamci, M. U.; Karakurt, A. H. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2017)
      The paper presents an approach to the Model Reference Adaptive Control (MRAC) design for nonlinear dynamical systems. A nonlinear reference system is considered such that its response is designed to be stable via Successive ...
    • Effects of linear filter on stability and performance of human-in-the-loop model reference adaptive control architectures 

      Yousefi, E.; Demir, D. F.; Sipahi, R.; Yucelen, T.; Yildiz, Y. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2017)
      Model reference adaptive control (MRAC) can effectively handle various challenges of the real world control problems including exogenous disturbances, system uncertainties, and degraded modes of operations. In human-in-the-loop ...
    • Kinect based intelligent wheelchair navigation with potential fields 

      Özçelikörs, M.; Çoşkun, A.; Say, M. G.; Yazici, A.; Yayan, U.; Akçakoca, M. (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
      Increasing elderly people population and people with disabilities constitute a huge demand for wheelchairs. Wheelchairs have an important role on improving the lives and mobilization of people with disabilities. Moreover, ...
    • Morphological surface profile extraction from multiple sonars 

      Başkent, D.; Barshan, B. (IEEE, Piscataway, NJ, United States, 1998)
      This paper presents a novel method for surface profile determination using multiple sensors. Our approach is based on morphological processing techniques to fuse the range data from multiple sensor returns in a manner that ...
    • A new method for range estimation using simple infrared sensors 

      Yüzbaşioǧlu, C.; Barshan, B. (2005)
      We describe a new method for position estimation of planar surfaces using simple, low-cost infrared (IR) sensors. The intensity data acquired with IR sensors depends highly on the surface properties and the configuration ...
    • Reactive footstep planning for a planar spring mass hopper 

      Arslan O.; Saranli, U.; Morgül O. (2009)
      The main driving force behind research on legged robots has always been their potential for high performance locomotion on rough terrain and the outdoors. Nevertheless, most existing control algorithms for such robots ...
    • A robotic software for intelligent applications 

      Güzel, M.S.; Hinislioǧlu, Y. (2013)
      This study addresses the development of a novel intelligent robotic software system which can control a low-cost five DOF robotic arm and allows the robot to be able to play Tic-Tac-Toe, a simple board game. The paper first ...
    • Surface differentiation and localization by parametric modeling of infrared intensity scans 

      Aytaç, T.; Barshan, B. (2005)
      In this study, surfaces with different properties are differentiated with simple low-cost infrared (IR) emitters and detectors in a location-invariant manner. The intensity readings obtained from such sensors are highly ...
    • Tactile perception by friction induced vibrations 

      Fagiani, R.; Massi, F.; Chatelet, E.; Berthier, Y.; Akay, A. (2011)
      When a finger moves to scan the surface of an object (haptic sensing), the sliding contact generates vibrations that propagate in the finger skin activating the receptors (mechanoreceptors) located in the skin, allowing ...
