bulletAndro-Care Applications for Elderly People
Developing applications for elderly or chronically ill people. Leveraging the power of mobile sensing, we will develop brand new apps with Android phones and Galaxy tablets which are equipped with GPS, microphone, an accelerometer and cameras. Using these sensors we'll develop context-aware assitive applications for the elderly and/or people with cognitive disabilities. Typical applications involve location tracking using GPS, activity recognition using accelerometer, medication reminder, daily routine tracking. If you have better ideas you are encouraged to develop them. This project requires Java for Android development skills. You are expected to have these skills.
bulletWearable Activity Recognition System
This project involves the design and development of a wearable activity recognition system. The system will be developed on Arduino platform. ( Firstly, a very fashionable and unobtrusive smart textile will be designed and developed using Arduino Lilypad parts. Knitting skills are required at this stage. Secondly, a data collecting system that is capable of communicating with the smart textile will be developed and tested on real users. The data collection system is required to run on a touch-screen Android tablet PC or smartphone. Android (Java) knowledge is essential.
bulletLocation Based Service Provider for Gediz Main Campus
The primary objective of the project is to develop a location based service provider for the Gediz main campus. To use our application users are only required to have an android smart phone or tablet PC with the capability of GPS and GPRS. By using this application the users can learn information about various events/activities going on in the Gediz Main Campus through a friendly user interface. The user interface is provided text-based and map-based. In text-based user interface the users are able to learn various different type of information about the requested services. Furthermore in map-based user interface the users can see their location by the use of Google Maps, besides using the provided services by this system. The system that will be developed is aimed to be used by Gediz students who would like to benefit from the services that are provided. However the application can be extended for all İzmir such as information about museums, bus schedules etc… can be provided since the system supports the necessary extensions for these and other facilities as well.

bulletFrameworks for Context-Aware Pervasive Systems (FCAPSYS), Fatih University-Research Fund Project,  6/2007 – 6/2009
FCAPSYS explores new ways of enabling and exploiting new wireless connectivity solutions (such as 802.11n) in pervasive computing systems and improving the effectiveness of current and future generation wireless networking and mobile computing technologies. Our ultimate objective in this project is to enhance wireless functionality in the local area using emerging new technologies and to push local area wireless system performance and functionality into the wide area.

We will design and construct software frameworks and hardware systems mainly on top of the available 802.11 WLAN infrastructure on the Fatih University and the new wireless systems such as 802.11n devices that enable quick-and-easy information exchange between diverse set of wireless devices, and build a foundation for creating applications and services that are both mobile-aware and context-aware. Our systems will be designed to adapt dynamically to the hostile radio environment and to the changing network topology. Our project emphasizes rapid prototyping and scenario based design so that developers, researchers and end-users can experiment with actual systems in our campus.

This project will investigate a new breed of computer applications termed context-aware pervasive systems, and attempt to provide architectural blueprints for building context-aware behavior into applications. The focus of the project is to build real systems to enable Pervasive Computing in our campus. FCAPSYS aims at developing middleware and protocols for service provisioning on mobile devices such as Packet PCs, Smart Phones, and fixed computers. The project FCAPSYS will design, implement, deploy, and evaluate a large-scale pervasive system using the available 802.11 infrastructure in the Fatih University Campus demonstrating the concept of a “context-aware pervasive system” that spans portable, handheld, desktop and infrastructure computers. It will be possible to design and develop emerging new pervasive services such as location services, multimedia communication services like voice and video applications, on top of our frameworks for the Fatih University Campus.

bulletWiPoDv2: This is the second fully functional version of WiPoD running near our Wireless Lab floor using 3 CISCO 1100 access points as location reference points. It will provide the location information for SORWiM indoor applications.
bulletSORWiM-WiPoD Integration: The WiPoD client application currently has a decentralized architecture and does not need a server. It will be connected to the SORWiM server to provide the indoor location information for the mobile user.
bulletLocation Based Services for Indoor Environments: We work on the research and development problems of different mobile location based services (LBS) applications based on service oriented computing using the basic and composite services provided by the SORWiM middleware. SORWiM currently has four basic services and two composite services which can be used as building blocks of such wireless applications. We need to develop some more new basic and composite services for more complex mobile applications and LBS.
bullet SORWiM (Service Oriented Reflective Wireless Middleware)    March 2006 - July 2006
In this project the concepts and a working software prototype SORWiM, Service Oriented Reflective Wireless Middleware are developed. It provides basic (Event, Messaging, Location, and Redirection) and composite services for efficient and reliable information discovery and dissemination in ad hoc mobile environments. One of the primary goals of this research is to investigate how the construction of mobile services can benefit from the Service-Oriented paradigm.
bulletWiPoD (Wireless Position Detector) April 2005 - July 2005
WiPoD is a pure software based location determination and tracking (positioning) system. It uses empirical signal strength measurements from different wireless access points for mobile user positioning. It is designed to determine the location of users having 802.11 enabled mobile devices in an 802.11 WLAN infrastructure and track them in real time. WiPoD is the first main module in our LBS (Location Based Services) framework. We tested K-Nearest Neighbor and Triangulation algorithms to estimate the position of a mobile user. We propose a supportable, i.e. understandable, maintainable, scalable and portable wireless positioning system architecture for an LBS framework. The WiPoD software has a multithreaded structure and was designed and implemented with paying attention to supportability features and real-time constraints and using object oriented design principles.
bulletSEWA (Supportable Enterprise Web Architecture) April 2005 - September 2005
This project outlines a Supportable Enterprise Web Architecture (SEWA) which is highly supportable, i.e. understandable, maintainable and scalable, and based on software engineering principles particularly object oriented design techniques. The development of SEWA emphasizes a roundtrip architectural modeling lifecycle. The lifecycle begins with the definition of a meta-architecture aimed at minimizing and managing software complexity. It then embraces various supportability metrics to ensure that the implementation conforms to the architectural design and that the resulting system is supportable. The architecture is based on basic and enterprise design patterns and on few new patterns specific to SEWA. It also describes best practices and design guidelines for building a real world enterprise web application based on SEWA using JSF, Spring and Hibernate as pluggable sample frameworks to evaluate the supportability and flexibility of the architecture.
