1 ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH AT THE FACULTY OF ENGINEERING Yeditepe University Faculty of Engineering

2 Assistive Technology Assistive technologies provide additional accessibility to individuals who have physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments and disabilities.

3 Assistive Technology International Standard ISO 9999 classification  Aids for therapy and training  Orthoses and prostheses  Aids for personal care and protection  Aids for personal mobility  Aids for housekeeping  Furnishings and adaptations to homes and other premises  Aids for handling products and goods  Aids and equipment for environmental improvement, tools and machines  Aids for recreation

4 Research at Yeditepe University  Computer Engineering Department  Mechanical Engineering Department  Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department  Biomedical Engineering Department

5 Research at Yeditepe University  Activity Monitoring  Prosthesis and Rehabilitation  Tools for personal care, protection, mobility and communication  Tools for the use of computers

6 Research at Yeditepe University  Activity Monitoring  Prosthesis and Rehabilitation  Tools for personal care, protection, mobility and housekeeping  Tools for the use of computers

7 Activity Monitoring Gamze Uslu, Özgür Altun, H.Ibrahim Dursunoglu, Şebnem Baydere, Department of Computer Engineering The monitoring system can detect  Simple actions (Lie, sit and stand)  Composite actions (Walk, stand-after-sit and sit-after-lie)

8 Emergency Monitoring Tool Using Mobile Phones Ferda Özgür Uğur, Esin Onbaşıoğlu, Department of Computer Engineering The tool can detect the following Actions  Sends a message to the caregiver when the user is resting or doing normal activities  When the user shakes his phone, it sends a signal to the caregiver to call him back  If the user falls, it dials the number automatically to call the caregiver

9 Research at Yeditepe University  Activity Monitoring  Prosthesis and Rehabilitation  Tools for personal care, protection, mobility and housekeeping  Tools for the use of computers

10 RehabRoby Robotic System for Rehabilitation  In this project, a robotic support system for the rehabilitation of upper-limb (RehabRoby) has been designed.  It has been analyzed, produced and tested. Duygun Erol Barkana, Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering

11 Biomechanical Analysis of Sit-to-stand Motion Towards the Design of a Mobility Assist Device  A motion-capture system was utilized for collecting the kinematic data, followed by image processing to obtain the coordinates of the markers.  These coordinates are then processed to obtain the kinematic variables that describe joint angular movements.  Static force and required power analyses are performed.  Results of this study indicate the feasibility of the assist device and form a basis for its design specifications. Mobility support systems Koray Şafak, Department of Mechanical Engineering

12 An Interactive Virtual Environment for Rehabilitation of Children  A 3D monitor or projection system is used to create a virtual room where balls are thrown at the child  Speed, size and direction of the balls can be changed depending on the selected exercise type  A depth sensor detects if the child could catch the balls  Performance of the child can be monitored H. Alp Kellecioğlu, Esin Onbaşıoğlu, Department of Computer Engineering Depth sensor 3D projection system

13 Research at Yeditepe University  Activity Monitoring  Prosthesis and Rehabilitation  Tools for personal care, mobility, communication  Tools for the use of computers

14 Wireless Sensor Network Based Smart Home for Disabled People  Intelligent Door Control System  When the disabled person, who cannot use his hands, comes home, the intelligent door control system notices and recognizes him, and then opens the door automatically.  Gas Detection System  An alarming system when there is a gas leakage  Warning Hearing Impaired People  When somebody pushes the doorbell, a small vibration motor enables human subject to be aware of the situation. Haktan Işılak, Şebnem Baydere, Department of Computer Engineering

15 Helping Visually Disabled People at Public Transport Systems  At the bus stop, user speaks the destination to his mobile phone.  Voice is recognized by the server.  When the bus arrives, the user is notified.  When the bus reaches at the destination, the user is notifed again. Ismail Yavuz, Şebnem Baydere, Department of Computer Engineering

16 Computer-aided Nourishment System  Head-controlled robot arm for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients  3rd Prize winner at the 2011 EMO Project Contest Tansel Bozkurt, Tacha Serif, Department of Computer Engineering

17 Turkish Sign Language Interpreter  Translates a text written in Turkish into Turkish Sign Language  Recognizes the signs with the help of a data glove and translates them into text. Mert Usta, Esin Onbaşıoğlu, Department of Computer Engineering “b” “a”

18 Research at Yeditepe University  Activity Monitoring  Prosthesis and Rehabilitation  Tools for personal care, protection, mobility and housekeeping  Tools for the use of computers

19 Finger-based Mouse Navigation  A computer and a web camera is needed  Green finger is the mouse cursor  Click and double click operations are activated according to the relative positions of the fingers and the distance between them Canberk Aslan, Dionysis Goularas Department of Computer Engineering

20 Gyroscope Enhanced Glove Mouse  A prototype Air Mouse system  Uses a gyroscope and MSP430 microcontroller Barışcan Kayaoğlu, Sezer Gören Uğurdağ, Department of Computer Engineering

21 Keyboard and Mouse Control by Head Movements  A head-mounted and wireless accelerometer is used  Mouse cursor movement is controlled by user simply tilting his/her head in the desired direction.  Keyboard control is achieved by a customized on screen keyboard. Cihat Keser, Esin Onbaşıoğlu, Department of Computer Engineering
