    • Adaptive control design for nonlinear systems via successive approximations 

      Babaei, N.; Salamcı, M. U.; Karakurt, Ahmet Hakan (ASME, 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 ...
    • An analytical solution to the stance dynamics of passive spring-loaded inverted pendulum with damping 

      Ankaralı, M. M.; Arslan, Ömür; Saranlı, Uluç (World Scientific, 2009-09)
      The Spring-Loaded Inverted Pendulum (SLIP) model has been established both as a very accurate descriptive tool as well as a good basis for the design and control of running robots. In particular, approximate analytic ...
    • An approximate stance map of the spring mass hopper with gravity correction for nonsymmetric locomotions 

      Arslan, Ömür; Saranlı, Uluç; Morgül, Ömer (IEEE, 2009)
      The Spring-Loaded Inverted Pendulum (SLIP) model has long been established as an effective and accurate descriptive model for running animals of widely differing sizes and morphologies, while also serving as a basis for ...
    • Design and analysis of mechanisms for decentralized joint replenishment 

      Güler, K.; Körpeoğlu, E.; Şen, A. (Elsevier B.V., 2017)
      We consider jointly replenishing multiple firms that operate under an EOQ like environment in a decentralized, non-cooperative setting. Each firm's demand rate and inventory holding cost rate are private information. We ...
    • Effects of linear filter on stability and performance of human-in-the-loop model reference adaptive control architectures 

      Yousefi, Ehsan; Demir, Didem Fatma; Sipahi, R.; Yücelen, T.; Yıldız, Yıldıray (ASME, 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 ...
    • An evaluative study of operation grouping policies in an FMS 

      Sabuncuoǧlu, İ.; Lahmar, M. (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2003)
      The increased use of flexible manufacturing systems to provide customers with diversified products efficiently has created a significant set of operational challenges for managers. This technology poses a number of decision ...
    • Joint visual attention modeling for naturally interacting robotic agents 

      Yücel, Zeynep; Salah, A. A.; Meriçli, C.; Meriçli, T. (IEEE, 2009-09)
      This paper elaborates on mechanisms for establishing visual joint attention for the design of robotic agents that learn through natural interfaces, following a developmental trajectory not unlike infants. We describe first ...
    • Mechanical design and position control of a modular mechatronic device (MechaCell) 

      Ristevski, Stefan; Çakmakçı, Melih (IEEE, 2015)
      Manufacturing techniques have advanced exponentially in recent years, providing means for production of smaller and more powerful electronics, which makes it compelling to design small and more powerful robots. Our work ...
    • Non-linear pricing by convex duality 

      Pınar, M. Ç. (Elsevier, 2015)
      We consider the pricing problem of a risk-neutral monopolist who produces (at a cost) and offers an infinitely divisible good to a single potential buyer that can be of a finite number of (single dimensional) types. The ...
    • Quality control chart design under jidoka 

      Berk, E.; Toy, A. Ö. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2009)
      We consider design of control charts in the presence of machine stoppages that are exogenously imposed (as under jidoka practices). Each stoppage creates an opportunity for inspection/repair at reduced cost. We first model ...
    • Robust screening under ambiguity 

      Pınar, M. Ç.; Kızılkale, C. (Springer, 2017)
      We consider the problem of screening where a seller puts up for sale an indivisible good, and a buyer with a valuation unknown to the seller wishes to acquire the good. We assume that the buyer valuations are represented ...
