Rayleigh-based optical reflectometry techniques for distributed sensing applications
(Selcuk University, 2018-10)
In this paper, we discuss the operation principles, sensing mechanisms, challenges and application areas of the optical reflectometry techniques exploiting Rayleigh scattering phenomenon, considering both time- and ...
Manipulator design for a haptic system with improved performance
This paper presents the work carried out to improve the design of an existing kinesthetic haptic device. The proposed improvement is designated for enhancing this device’s impedance width which is a common metric in ...
A continuously variable transmission system designed for human-robot interfaces
Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) systems are being used for many applications such as automotive transmissions, robotics, aerospace. In an ideal condition, these systems have the potential to provide continuously ...
Development of a phase-OTDR interrogator based on coherent detection scheme
(Uludağ University, 2018-12)
We present in this work, the experimental demonstration of a phase-sensitive Optical Time- Domain Reflectometer (phase-OTDR) having coherent detection scheme. An analysis algorithm has also been developed to calculate ...
Design and experimental validation of an MR-fluid based brake for use in haptics
(VDE Publishing House, 2018)
In this work, the design of an MR-fluid based brake system is given which is aimed to be used in kinaesthetic haptic devices. The brake design proposes a solution to the stiction problem which is common among the MR brake ...
UYMS 2018: Önsöz
(CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2018)
Experimental investigation of refractive index measurement of common solvents and aqueous solutions in the infrared wavelengths
We proposed and experimentally demonstrated a fast and simple technique to measure refractive index of liquids. A commercial Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) was implemented for interrogating sensor tips from a ...
Analytical dynamic analysis of a kinesthetic haptic device
(Dokuz Eylul University-Faculty of Engineering, 2018-05)
A hybrid-structured kinesthetic haptic device based on an R-CUBE mechanism and a serial spherical wrist mechanism is considered in this article. This device is designed to simulate point-type contacts on the user. Hence, ...
Cerrahın anlık yönlendirilebildiği robot yardımlı endoskop kontrol sistemi mimarisi - NeuRoboScope
