Interface Design for Automation of the Scanning EMG Method

Dogan, B | Goker, I | Baslo, MB | Erdal, H | Ulgen, Y


Scanning EMG is a method developed for examining the electro-physiological cross section and the size of the motor unit of a human muscle. Electrical specifications of the motor unit can be obtained as well as anatomical distribution of muscle fibers and pathological changes between different muscles can be examined by the help of this method. In this paper; an automation system which is designed for the execution of scanning EMG method, whether manually or automatically, and a user-interface are described. Parameters like step count and step size which are about the movement of an electrode. moved by a linear actuator, through musc . . .le fibers can be defined as reference by user via designed interface. As a result, acquired signals are digitalized by data-acquisition card (DAQ) and saved as text file for the future signal process tasks Daha fazlası Daha az

Eksen, K | Serif, T | Ghinea, G | Gronli, TM


Healthcare services and research centre reports estimate that by 2050, Americans aged 65 or older will reach the 89 million mark; this is more than double the number of older adults in the United States in 2010. In an aging society, it is important to home care elderly and maintain their daily needs and provide safe evacuation alternatives in the case emergency. Hence, this paper aims to implement and evaluate a smart and location-aware indoor emergency evacuation system for elderly users. The prototype system employs multiple Bluetooth Low Energy and iBeacon sensors and a smartphone. The smartphone utilizes the beacon signals to es . . .timate its location within the building and uses the sensor data transmitted by the iBeacons to identify the level of threat (if any) to the elderly user and guide him/ her to a safe zone in the case of fire, earthquake etc. Our prototype was tested in three different locations utilizing two different types of sensors. The results show that our system can detect a threat and guide the elderly user with minimum 85.47 centimeters and maximum 239.8 centimeters distance error Daha fazlası Daha az

Yetkin, AE | Hamamci, A

Conference Object | 2017 | 2017 21ST NATIONAL BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING MEETING (BIYOMUT) , pp.50 - 56

In this study, landmark detectors which are trained on head model obtained using magnetic resonance (MR) images, are applied on the optical camera images of the same subject. 2 different CNN based region proposal networks are employed for this purpose. The problem due to the domain discrepancy between the training and application domains is considered in domain generalization framework. Although, the performance of both networks on their training domain (MRI) were similar, their performance on the target domain (camera images) differ significantly.

Detecting Inshore Ships in Satellite Images

Ozcan, AH | Unsalan, C


Ship detection in satellite images is used for monitoring illegal fishing and violation of coastal waters or general maritime management. SAR images has been extensively used in this manner. Recently, researchers have started using optical satellite images for ship detection. These studies can be divided into two categories as inshore and offshore ship detection. Offshore ship detection is a relatively easy problem. But, inshore ship detection is a challenging problem in which ships are located closely. In this study, we handle this problem and propose a novel method assuming we have the harbor information beforehand. In the method, . . . the mask is morphologically thickened in single steps and adjacent ships are detected with a contour following method. Moreover, a shape model for the ships is used to eliminate false alarms. We tested the proposed method on high resolution satellite images and achieved promising results Daha fazlası Daha az

Investigation of Oil and Winding Temperature Models of Power Transformers

Yigit, E | Ucak, C


The quality of electrical power and serves continuity of electricity is a significant research area for consumer satisfaction and for the reliability of electric system. The prolonged outages of the electricity grid may cause increased power demand during distribution system restoration because of thermostatically control loads. This situation may lead to overloading of the power transformers. Minimization of overload problems and effective restoration of distribution system depend on the determination of power transformer loading limits. Therefore, derivations of dynamic temperature models based on operation conditions and temperat . . .ure variations should be known for different loadings and time intervals. In this study, top oil and hottest-spot temperatures of power transformers are examined by using IEEE Annex G model and equivalent heat circuit model for different loading conditions, and differences between these models are stated Daha fazlası Daha az

Conference Object | 2017 | 2017 21ST NATIONAL BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING MEETING (BIYOMUT) , pp.11 - 15

McKibben artificial muscle has attracted attention in Robotics studies because of its similar characteristics with human muscles and its high power- weight ratio. McKibben muscles have the advantage in terms of safety due to its soft property especially in the field of rehabilitation robotics where human- robot interaction is more important. Furthermore the external loads on human body can be minimized. In this study, by changing the structure of McKibben muscle, it was provided that McKibben muscle was bended rather than shortened when compressed air was supplied. By using sensors, the relationship between input air pressure, bendi . . .ng angle and generated force was shown Daha fazlası Daha az

Conference Object | 2017 | 2017 MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES NATIONAL CONGRESS (TIPTEKNO) , pp.11 - 15

Advanced smart pillboxes are needed for use with the heart rate regulating drugs. The most important component of these pillboxes is the heart beat rate sensor. In this study, experimental analyses have been performed with different optical sensors namely HRM-2511B transmissive sensor, TCRT1000 reflective sensor and PulseSensor reflective sensor in heartbeat sensing. All of the sensors provide very similar frequency signals captured from the left index finger. All the sensors give quite similar and correct measurement results when compared with the reference device. However, the measurement consistency is highly dependent on the pla . . .cement of the fingertip on the sensor. TCRT1000 and PulseSensor sensors require additional mechanical setup while HRM-2511B sensor is already equipped with a robust fingertip fixing mechanism. In the future, we are planning to develop an advanced smart pillbox based on the HRM-2511B sensor Daha fazlası Daha az

Using color indices to overcome the scattering problem in line laser scanners

Benveniste, R | Unsalan, C


3D laser scanning systems have been used in many industrial applications. They provide depth information of an object so that it can be processed by a computer. Unfortunately, laser scanners can not be used reliably on metallic surfaces and shiny marble stones due to scattering of the laser line on the surface. To overcome this problem, either the light intensity of the environment is adjusted or the surface is covered with a powder to decrease the scattering on the surface. In this study, we propose a solution to overcome the scattering problem of line lasers by using color indices. This way, shiny surfaces can also be scanned reli . . .ably. To test our method, we also developed a prototype 3D laser scanner system and provide the results Daha fazlası Daha az
