Tapir Lab. took first place by receiving 97 points out of 100 from the submitted Project Detail Report (PDR) for Digital Technologies in Industry Competition – Advanced Category in TEKNOFEST 2022. The fundamental objective of the Digital Technologies in Industry Competition is developing autonomous mobile robots that can transport materials between two pre-determined points by following lines, updating planned route in real time by sensing changes in the environment, and warning the operators in case of an emergency. These are the characteristics of mobile robots used in manufacturing facilities and warehouses. After a long preparation phase, Tapir Lab. has participated in the competition with the TapirBot v1.0 which is developed considering the obligations and requirements of the competition. The results of the TEKNOFEST 2022 Digital Technologies in Industry Competition will be announced at the award ceremony to be held in Samsun on August 30th 2022.
Tapir Lab. is excited to announce that the an animated video explaining fundamentals of Base-b notation, representation of natural numbers and base conversion have published on the Tapir Lab. YouTube channel! Tapir Lab. will host animated explanations of numerous topics in physics, mathematics, engineering, and computer science by utilizing open source visualization tools. Stay tuned for upcoming episodes! This video is sponsored by Bil101, and visit bil101.com for further information along with many other explanatory text (in Turkish).
This video introduces the fundamentals of Base-b notation of natural numbers. It discusses the key concepts of base, digit, numeral, and symbol as well as the rationale regarding how all concepts come together and are interpreted as a single natural number. The discussion includes important representations such as decimal, octal, binary, and hexadecimal notations or systems along with examples.
Tapir Lab. members Özgür Alaca and Halil Said Cankurtaran have presented their papers entitled “Spatio-Temporal Failure Propagation in Cyber-Physical Power Systems” and “Propeller Effects on mmWave UAV Channels: A Statistical and Empirical Modeling Study” at the IEEE International Black Sea Conference on Communications and Networking (IEEE BlackSeaCom ’22) which is one of the top IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) conferences. These two studies was performed in collaboration with Texas A&M University, where Özgür Alaca currently pursuing his PhD.
Tapir Lab. proudly announces that the best paper award in The Third International Conference on Smart Grid and Renewable Energy Conference (2022) is given to Osman Boyacı, a Tapir Lab. member, for his work entitled “Spatio-Temporal Failure Propagation in Cyber-Physical Power Systems”.
