Paper Title:

Commanding Computer Using Gesture Based Patterns

Abstract:   Gesture recognition is one of the popular methods for Human computer Interaction. This paper is mainly focused on the applications of this technology in the computing environment. The idea is to construct such a system which can take gesture inputs and on the basis of that controlling and commanding of the computer is performed. In doing so, such a module is presented which is based on the finger tracking through which different types of applications can be started. This module basically performs the finger counting and then on the basis of which actions are performed. Further these actions are used to control various functions of operating systems. Results reveal that the proposed technique works well in the robust conditions

Paper Title:

Speech Emotion Recognition by using SVM-Classifier

Abstract:    Automatic emotion recognition in speech is a current research area with a wide range of applications in human-machine interactions. This paper uses the support vector machine (SVM), to classify five emotional states: anger, happiness, sadness, surprise and a neutral state. The classification performance of the selected feature subset was done with that of the Mel frequency cepstrum coefficients (MFCC), Periodicity Histogram and Fluctuation Pattern. Within the method based on SVM, a new method by using Multi-class SVM is used as a classifier. Experiments were conducted on the Danish Emotion Speech (DES) Database. The recognition rates by using SVM classifier were 68 %, 60 %, 55.40 % and 60 % for Linear, Polynomial, RBF, and Sigmoid Kernel Function respectively. The recognition rates by Multiclass SVM using Linear, Polynomial, RBF and Sigmoid kernel function for Danish database for Periodicity Histogram are 64.77 %, 78.41 %, 79.55 % and 78.41% respectively.

Improving Content Based Image Retrieval using Scale Invariant Feature Transform

Abstract:    Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) is a challenging task. Common approaches use only low-level features. Notwithstanding, such CBIR solutions fail on capturing some local features representing the details and nuances of scenes. Many techniques in image processing and computer vision can capture these scene semantics. Among them, the Scale Invariant Features Transform (SIFT) has been widely used in a lot of applications. This approach relies on the choice of several parameters which directly impact its effectiveness when applied to retrieve images. In this paper, we attempt to evaluate the application of the SIFT to refine CBIR.

Recent Developments in Traffic Signs Recognition Techniques

Abstract:    The traffic signs play a vital role for accident free and smooth fast driving. If the recognition of traffic signs done by the accurate and fast automated systems, it provides the extra edge in efficient navigation. Thus automatic traffic signs recognition is an important task, particularly in intelligence transportation system. Automated recognition system collects useful information about traffic signs, helps the driver to make timely decisions, and increases driving safety and comfort. This paper presents an overview of the different methods and techniques used in traffic sign detection and recognition. It describes the physical properties and characteristics of the road signs, potential difficulties and problems that occur during detection of real-time images. The detection and recognition techniques are classified into three stages i.e. Color-based filtering, shape-based analysis and final recognition. Thus, we have chronologically discussed some of the referred previous work theme-wise with respect to the different approaches and techniques used in these stages. In future, new techniques should be involved to increase the robustness, and to get faster systems for real-time applications.

EMA-QPSO based Feature Selection and Weighted Classification by LS-SVM for Diabetes diagnosis

Abstract:    In accordance to the fast developing technology now a days, every field is gaining it’s benefit through machines other than human involvement. Many changes are being made much advancement is possible by this developing technology. Likewise this technology is too gaining its importance in bioinformatics especially to analyse data. As we all know that diabetes is one of the present day deadly diseases prevailing. With the motivation of our earlier model OFW-ITS-LSSVM, here in this paper we introduce weighted classification with LSSVM to diagnose the diabetes in given blood sample datasets. We derived and proposed a swarm intelligence technique called Escalated Mediocre Agent based Quantum Particle Swarm Optimization EMA-QPSO for feature selection. The feature weights will be identified using a technique DFWQ (dynamic feature weight quantization) that derived from HITS algorithm, which uses in web mining. In contrast to our earlier model OFW-ITS-LSSVM the proposed model is not using pre defined ontology. Further, considering the patient’s details we can predict where he has a chance to get diabetes, if so measures to cure or stop it.

Detection of Brain Tumor in MRI Images Using Mean Shift Algorithm and Normalized Cut Method

Abstract:    This paper introduces an efficient method for detection of brain tumor from Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI). In the process of detection of tumor from MRI, segmentation plays vital role for partitioning an image into different subregion with homogeneous properties. The methodology introduced here consist of combination of two conventional algorithms i.e. Mean shift algorithm and Normalized cut (Ncut) Method which provides automatic detection of exact surface area of brain tumor in MRI. By incorporating the advantages of the mean shift segmentation and Ncut method, Magnetic Resonance image (MRI) will be preprocessed first by using the mean shift algorithm to form segmented regions, then Ncut method will be used for region nodes clustering after this connect component extraction analysis is used to locate the exact tumorous area in MRI Images.

Finite Elemental Analysis of Influence of Shape and Profile of Cutting Edge of Twist Drill on Drilling Process

Abstract:    The aims of the investigations presented in this paper were to measure the tool load under conditions of drilling and to analyze if changes of the cutting edge shape and profile significantly influence the edge stresses. The described methods to analyze the influences of edge shape modifications will contribute to the optimization of drilling tools. Based on a specific cutting edge shape of a drill, systematic changes to the edge were made. Forces and temperatures on the cutting edge were measured as well as the heat flow into the chips and the workpiece. Using a quick-stop device, length and type of chip for the different drills under various machining parameters were observed. It could be shown that the modification of the transition from the chisel to the cutting edge influences the stress developed, heat in chip and chip formation. Machining with a rounded cutting edge shape compared to a sharp edge reduces the mechanical load but slightly increases thermal tool load. The presented experimental and FEA method show the possibility of determining influences of modified cutting edge shapes and to adapt the drill to the needs of the drilling process. The cutting force and stress developed during drilling processes has direct influence on the generation of heat, tool wear, quality of machined surface and accuracy of workpiece. Due to complex tool geometry, cutting conditions and some unknown factors theoretical cutting force and stress calculation failed to produce accurate results. To see the behavior of drill either experimental or Finite Elemental Analysis can be used. By using both the methods validation of results can be possible.

Application of Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Sebha University in Student Affairs Unit

Abstract:    Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) is the study of how people use technology, with relation to hardware and software, to work together in shared time and space. The nature of computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) is to facilitate work using technology in such a way that supports human interaction in cooperative work situations. This study was conducted in order to investigate on application of CSCW in Sebha University, in particular, in students’ affairs unit. The proposed application system would be the tools that will facilitate and automate workflow in this organization. This study was also proposed an outline policy for the organization based on the use of the automated system. For this study, the researcher designed a survey and distributed organization to 40 employees of this organization. Besides that, since the study is about current workflow, an observation was conducted to see how process is done. Findings revealed that most of the participants replied positively that they are seriously in need to use up-to date automated technology to ease their interaction in that unit.

Sustainable Public Transportation in Malaysia

Abstract:    The sustainable public transportations represent one of the civilization implements in the development countries including Malaysia.  The increase of the automobile vehicles in the Malaysian cities represents the civilization challenge in   Malaysian Infrastructure development.  Depending on the estimations conducted in 2005 for the number of automobile vehicles will increase to 15, 0000 million vehicles by 2020. Furthermore, it has been estimated that the motorcycles number is higher than the other types of the vehicles. The implications of the crucial increasing of street vehicles will disrupt widely the environment and human rather than the other types of the Malaysian infrastructure built. Therefore, the scientists suggest the Malaysian government to encourage the sustainable public transportation by reducing the costs and the ground fuel elimination. In addition, facilitation of manufacturing of   the free fuel vehicles may contribute the dilemma reduction.

Implementation of an Efficient Multiplier based on Vedic Mathematics Using EDA Tool

Abstract:    A high speed processor depends greatly on the multiplier as it is one of the key hardware blocks in most digital signal processing systems as well as in general processors. This paper presents a high speed 8x8 bit Vedic multiplier architecture which is quite different from the Conventional method of multiplication like add and shift. The most significant aspect of the proposed method is that, the developed multiplier architecture is based on Vertical and Crosswise structure of Ancient Indian Vedic Mathematics. It generates all partial products and their sum in one step.  This also gives chances for modular design where smaller block can be used to design the bigger one. So the design complexity gets reduced for inputs of larger no of bits and modularity gets increased. The proposed Vedic multiplier is coded in VHDL (Very High Speed Integrated Circuits Hardware Description Language), synthesized and simulated using EDA (Electronic Design Automation) tool - XilinxISE12.1i. Finally the results are compared with Conventional multipliers to show the significant improvement in its efficiency in terms of path delay (speed). The  high  speed  processor requires  high  speed  multipliers  and  the  Vedic  Multiplication  technique  is  very  much  suitable  for this purpose.

A Study on Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) Sensors & their Applications

Abstract:    Continued demands for better control of the operating conditions of structures and processes have led to the need for better means of measuring temperature (T), pressure (P), and relative humidity (RH). One way to satisfy this need is to use MEMS technology to develop a sensor that will contain, in a single package, capabilities to simultaneously measure T, P, and RH of its environment. Because of the advantages of MEMS technology, which include small size, low power, very high precision, and low cost, it was selected for use in this paper. Although MEMS sensors that individually measure T, P, and RH exist, there are no sensors that combine all three measurements in a single package. In this paper we present overview of microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensors and its application, is the technology of very small mechanical devices driven by electricity. The critical physical dimensions of MEMS devices can vary from well below one micron on the lower end of the dimensional spectrum, all the way to several millimeters, it merges at the nano-scale into nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) and nanotechnology. MEMS are also referred to as micromachines (in Japan), or micro systems technology – MST (in Europe).

22nm Ptm Model Low Power yet High Speed CMOS High K Metal Gate Strained Silicon Technology Inverter

Abstract:   This paper analysis four inverter configuration with low power and high performance PTM  models of Arizona State University, USA at 22nm technology with High K metal gate strained silicon technology. The  effect of stacked transistor is analysed to show the reduced average and peak power dissipation. This stack effect is utilized in combination with forward biasing of a transistor to have low power but high speed inverter without loosing the maximum and minimum voltage swing at the output. Average power dissipated by low power stacked forward biased inverter is reduced by 4% compared to HP inverter. Peak power reduction is 64% in case of this new inverter compared to traditional High Performance  inverter. The propagation delay is more compared to a HP inverter but is reduced by  almost 18.2% compared to Low Power stacked inverter.

Principal Component Analysis for Face Recognition

Abstract:    Face recognition is a biometric technology with a wide range of potential applications such as access control, banking, information security, human computer interaction, virtual reality, database retrieval etc. This paper addresses the building of   face recognition system by using Principal Component Analysis (PCA) method. PCA is a statistical approach used for reducing the number of variables in face recognition. While extracting the most relevant information (feature) contained in the images (face). In PCA, every image in the training set can be represented as a linear combination of weighted eigenvectors called as “Eigenfaces”. These eigenvectors are obtained from covariance matrix of a training image set called as basis function. The weights are found out after selecting a set of most relevant Eigenfaces. Recognition is performed by projecting a new image (test image) onto the subspace spanned by the eigenfaces and then classification is done by distance measure methods such as Euclidean distance. A number of experiments were done to evaluate the performance of the face recognition system.

Automation of 10 KW Biomass Gasifier and its effectiveness on saw dust briquettes with binder cow dung.

Abstract:    India is very rich in biomass. It has a potential of 19,500 MW (3,500 MW from bagasse based cogeneration and 16,000 MW from surplus biomass). Currently, India has 537 MW commissioned and 536 MW under construction.(GENI). On the other hand rural biomass gasification projects for power generation are facing lot of practical difficulties on operational effectiveness of gasification due to shortage of man power and knowledge worker for the operation of gasifier. Preparation of briquettes and starting and stopping of gasifier is a difficult task in many rural areas. So many rural power projects are failed to take momentum on implementation. This paper is focus on experimental investigation on effectiveness of automation of rural 10 KW biomass gasifier and its effectiveness. PLC based SCADA system was introduced in the programme controlled gasification of bio mass gasifier was experimentally tested. The results reveal that it improved gasification efficiency and less dependent of human man power.  This experiment was tested with saw dust briquette with cow dung as binder having 75:25 ratio at 800* C. This ratio is selected because of higher gas composition than any other ratio’s.  it is investigated in manual mode operation and Automation mode operation for its effectiveness in a 10 KW down  draft gasifier  The experimental result reveals that, the gasification effectiveness is high due to complete combustion and its efficiency is improved around 10%. Automation leads to complete combustion and it helps to improve the reduction process of gasification. it increases in the production  of Methane and CH4 in producer gas.. Quality of product gas produced is comparatively better in automation of gasifier.

Enhancement and Pre-Processing of Images Using Filtering

Abstract:    The field of Digital Image Processing refers to processing digital images by means of digital computer. One of the main application areas in Digital Image Processing methods is to improve the pictorial information for human interpretation. Most of the digital images contain noise. This can be removed by many enhancement techniques. Filtering is one of the enhancement techniques which is used to remove unwanted information (noise) from the image. It is also used for image sharpening and smoothening. The aim of this project is to demonstrate the filtering techniques by performing different operations such as smoothening, sharpening, removing the noise etc. This project has been developed using Java language because of its universal acceptance and easy understandability. Interest in digital image processing methods stems from two principal application areas:- improvement of pictorial information for human interpretation; and processing of image data for storage, transformation, and representation for autonomous machine perception

Paper Title:

Performance based Frequent Itemset Mining Techniques for Data Mining

Abstract:    Data mining tasks that try to find interesting patterns from databases, such as association rules, correlations, sequences, episodes, classifiers, clusters and many more of which the mining of association rules is one of the most popular problems. There is a large body of research on Frequent Itemset Mining (FIM) but very little work addresses FIM in uncertain databases. Most studies on frequent itemset mining focus on mining precise data. However, there are situations in which the data are uncertain. This leads to the mining of uncertain data. There are also situations in which users are only interested in frequent itemsets that satisfy user-specified aggregate constraints. This leads to constrained mining of uncertain data. Moreover, floods of uncertain data can be produced in many other situations. This leads to stream mining of uncertain data. In this paper, we propose algorithms to deal with all these situations. We first design a tree-based mining algorithm to find all frequent itemsets from databases of uncertain data. We then extend it to mine databases of uncertain data for only those frequent itemsets that satisfy user-specified aggregate constraints and to mine streams of uncertain data for all frequent itemsets. Our experimental results show the more effectiveness than existing methods.

Design and Implementation of A Memory For Joint Improvement Of Error Tolerance And Access Efficiency

Abstract:    The on-chip memory becomes increasingly exposed to the dual challenges of device-level reliability degradation and architecture-level performance gap. We propose to exploit the inherent memory soft redundancy for on-chip memory design. Due to the mismatch between fixed cache line size and runtime variations in memory spatial locality, many irrelevant data are fetched into the memory thereby wasting memory spaces. The proposed soft-redundancy allocated memory detects and utilizes these memory spaces for jointly achieving efficient memory access and effective error control. We design an CRC & ECC with error correction techniques by making use of standard Ethernet (004C11DB7H) polynomial and compare with each other, which will be implemented in FPGA proposed system design which take care of the Cache and memory by re-checking the cache when a miss is identified and help in effective functionality of the system and finally we compare which method will give good results in terms of cost and reliability.

Investigation of Modal parameters of Carbon & Kevlar Fiber composite Laminates using FFT Analyzer

Abstract:   Composite Materials are known for their excellent combinations of High Structural Stiffness & Low Weight. They allow the Design Engineer to tailor the material in order to achieve the desired performance requirements because of their anisotropic properties. Therefore, it has become very necessary for Engineers to develop tools which allow the Design Engineer to obtain Optimized designs considering the structural requirements. Based on these requirements, this work considers the Dynamic behavior of Components manufactured from Fiber- reinforced Composite Materials. Towards this, Specimens of Carbon & Kevlar fibers were manufactured using the Hand Lay-up process followed by cutting to the required dimension. Experimental Dynamic Tests were carried out using specimens of different thickness. From the results obtained, the influence of the fiber orientations as well as the stacking sequences on the modal parameters like Natural frequency, Damping etc., were investigated. Also, Validation of the results of Theoretical and from the FEA was done. Good Agreement was obtained between the finite – element predictions and experimentalresults

An Experimental Investigation of Electrode Wear Rate (EWR), Material Removal Rate (MRR) and Radial Overcut (ROC) in EDM of High Carbon-High Chromium Steel (AISI D3)

Abstract:    This study investigates the influence of EDM parameters on EWR, MRR and ROC while machining of AISI D3 material. The parameters considered are pulse-on time (Ton), peak current (Ip), duty factor (t) and gap voltage (Vg). The experiments were performed on the die-sinking EDM machine fitted with a copper electrode. The experiments planned, conducted and analyzed using Taguchi method. It is found that the MRR is mainly influenced by (Ip); where as other factors have very less effect on material removal rate. Electrode wear rate is mainly influenced by peak current (Ip) and pulse on time (Ton), duty cycle (t) and gap voltage (Vg) has very less effect on electrode wear rate. Peak current (Ip) has the most influence on radial overcut then followed by duty cycle (t) and pulse on time (Ton) with almost very less influence by gap voltage (Vg).

Seismic Propensity of Knee Braced Frame (KBF) As Weighed Against Concentric Braced Frame (CBF) Utilizing ETABS and OPENSEES

Abstract:    Steel braced frame is one of the structural systems used to resist earthquake loads in structures. Many existing reinforced concrete structures need retrofitting to overcome deficiencies and to resist seismic loads. The use of steel bracing systems for strengthening or retrofitting seismically in adequate reinforced concrete frames is a viable solution for enhancing earthquake resistance. Steel bracing is economical, easy to erect, occupies less space and has flexibility to design for meeting the required strength and stiffness. In the present study, seismic propensity of knee braced frames as weigh against concentric braced frames was investigated. These investigations were based on stiffness and ductility. Single - bay reinforced concrete frames in two levels which are a 1- story and a 10- story with three modes which are reinforced concrete frame without brace and reinforced concrete frame with concentric brace system and reinforced concrete frame with knee brace system were considered. Displacement analysis were performed using the  Extended 3D Analysis of Building Systems (ETABS) software for investigating stiffness of these system and pushover analysis were performed through Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (OPENSEES) software for investigating ductility of these system. Finally, analysis of cyclic loading was done by using again the OPENSEES software for the completion of the investigations. The results of these outputs indicated that concentric bracing can provide a stiffer bracing system but reduces the ductility of the reinforced concrete frame. Knee bracing can be employed to provide the desired ductility level for reinforced concrete frame. It is concluded that both concentric bracing and knee bracing systems may be used to design or to retrofit for a damage-level earthquake. However, when designing or retrofitting for a collapse-level earthquake, knee bracing is a more effective system.

Fragile Watermarking Scheme for Images in Transform Domain

Abstract:    Watermarking had an explosive amount of work done in the past decade. The field has diverse application areas, and a large number of fields amalgamate to ensure different requirement in different circumstances is being met by watermarking. We will be focusing in this paper mainly on the techniques which come under authenticating an image as to see if the image which is being used as a proof is not tampered in any way. This comes as the subset named as fragile watermarking in the field of watermarking techniques. We propose a novel method which focuses mainly on JPEG format of images and takes the lossy compression into consideration. The method works for both grayscale as well as the color images.

Paper Title:

Biometric Parameter Based Cryptographic Key Generation

Abstract:    A method is proposed for generation of unique cryptographic key which is generated using biometrics of the user, which are stable throughout person's lifetime. The proposed approach reduces the cost associated with lost keys, addresses non-repudiation issues and provides increased security of digital content. This approach has reduced the complicated sequence of the operation to generate crypto keys as in the traditional cryptography system. The key is derived directly from the biometric data and is not stored in the database, since it creates more complexity to crack or guess the cryptographic keys. We evaluated our technique using 50 different fingerprint samples, and found that an error-free key can be reproduced reliably with a 99.5% success rate. This approach is implemented in MATLAB and can generate variable size cryptographic key, with minimum amount of time complexity, which is aptly suited for any real time cryptography.

High Speed Codec Design for Crosstalk Avoidance

Abstract:    The cross talk is dependent on the data transition patterns on the bus, patterns can be classified based on the severity of the crosstalk they impose on the bus. The general idea behind techniques that improve on-chip bus speed is to remove undesirable patterns that are associated with certain classes of crosstalk. Different schemes incur different area  overheads since they requires additional wires, spacing between wires or both. We analyze the properties of the FPF-CAC and show that mathematically, a mapping scheme exists between the data words and code words. Our proposed CODEC design offers a near-optimal area overhead performance. An improved version of the CODEC is then presented, which achieves theoretical optimal performance. We also investigate the implementation details of the CODECs, including design complexity and the speed. Optimization schemes are provided to reduce the size of the CODEC and improve its speed.

Energy Efficiency in Data Centers: How to Reduce Power Consumption in Data Centers by Optimum UPS Loading

Abstract:    Computation and data center has a huge value to modern enterprise. This has resulted in the installation of millions of data centers in business around the globe. Historically, the cost to power and cool these facilities was small relative to the investment in servers, storage units and other equipments. Today, however, the annual power and cooling costs of typical data centers are almost equal to the cost of hardware. In the past decade, India has witnessed an exponential increase in the demand for digital storage, from 1 petabyte in 2001 to more than 34 petabytes by 2007. They also continue to grow at a compounded rate of 25-30%. Datacenter growth is basically driven by increasing requirements from the sectors such as financial institutions, telecom operators, manufacturing and services. While large financial institutions and telecom companies are likely to build captive Datacenters for hosting their growing data storage needs. Datacenter service providers are expected to invest significantly to multiply their capacities, so as to fulfill the demand arising from small and midsize users. Datacenter is highly energy intensive. With the increasing energy cost, the increase in operational cost is inevitable. Therefore it becomes necessary to reduce the energy consumption to offset the increasing operational cost and to maintain competitiveness. Existing Datacenters need to adopt the best practices in design, operation and maintenance to achieve operational excellence. The increasing IT business process outsource from foreign countries has resulted in phenomenal growth of Datacenters in India. The total datacenter capacity in India is growing at a rapid pace and is expected to exceed 5.1 million square feet by 2012. The primary scope of this paper is to provide a framework in which data centers, large and small, could analyze and reduce their power consumption. This paper provides a quantitative approach to understanding energy efficiency within a server and within a data center. A panorama for power minimization and energy efficiency beginning with the basics of dual in line memory modules (DIMM) selection, configuring processors with reduced power states, options for constantly spinning disks, power management features in operating systems and other internal equipments.

Power Quality Improvement of Grid Connected Wind Energy System having Balanced and Unbalanced Non-linear Loads

Abstract:    A Power quality problem is an occurrence manifested as a nonstandard voltage, current or frequency that results in a failure or a mis-operation of end user equipments. Utility distribution networks, sensitive industrial loads and critical commercial operations suffer from various types of outages and service interruptions which can cost significant financial losses. With the restructuring of power systems and with shifting trend towards distributed and dispersed generation, the issue of power quality is going to take newer dimension. Injection of the wind power into an electric grid affects the power quality. The performance of the wind turbine and thereby power quality are determined on the basis of measurements and the norms followed according to the guideline specified in International Electro-technical Commission standard, IEC-61400. The influence of the wind turbine in the grid system concerning the power quality measurements are-the active power, reactive power, variation of voltage, flicker, harmonics, and electrical behavior of switching operation and these are measured according to national/international guidelines. The paper study demonstrates the power quality problem due to installation of wind turbine with the grid. In this proposed scheme STATIC COMPENSATOR (STATCOM) is connected at a point of common coupling with a battery energy storage system (BESS) to mitigate the power quality issues.. The STATCOM control scheme for the grid connected wind energy generation system for power quality improvement is simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK in power system block set. Finally the proposed scheme is applied for both balanced and unbalanced linear non- linear loads.

Efficient Method for De-Duplication and Periodicity Mining In Time Series Databases

Abstract:    Periodic pattern mining or periodicity detection has a number of applications, such as prediction, forecasting, detection of unusual activities, etc. The problem is not trivial because the data to be analyzed are mostly noisy and differentperiodicity types(namely symbol, sequence, and segment) are to be investigated. Noise is the duplication of data from differentdatabases when they are used for same purpose in different places. So it should be removed. Time series is a collection of data values gathered generally at uniform interval of time to reflect certain behavior of an entity. Real life has several examples of time series such as weather conditions of a particular location, transactions in a superstore, network delays, power consumption, earthquake prediction. A time series is mostly characterized by being composed of repeating cycles. Identifying repeating (periodic) patterns could reveal important observations about the behavior and future trends of the case represented by the time series, and hence would lead to more effective decision making. The goal of analyzing a time series is to find whether and how frequent a periodic pattern (full or partial) is repeated within the series. There is a need for a comprehensive approach capable of analyzing the whole time series or in a subsection of it to effectively handle different types of noise (to a certain degree) and at the same time is able to detect different types of periodic patterns; combining these under one umbrella is by itself a challenge. In this paper, we present an algorithm which can detect symbol, sequence (partial), and segment (full cycle) periodicity in time series. The algorithm is noise resilient; it has been successfully demonstrated to work with replacement, insertion, deletion, or a mixture of these types of noise.

Signaling Technique for Free Space Optics

Abstract:    A new efficient method to implement orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) on intensity modulated direct detection (IM/DD) channels is presented and termed auto-correlated optical OFDM. It is shown that a necessary and sufficient condition for a band limited periodic signal to be positive for all time is that the frequency coefficients form an autocorrelation sequence. Instead of sending data directly on the subcarriers, the autocorrelation of the complex data sequence is performed before transmission to guarantee non-negativity. In contrast to previous approaches, auto-correlated optical OFDM is able to use the entire bandwidth for data transmission and does not require reserved subcarriers.

Feasibility of Waste Metallised Polythene Used As Concrete Constituent

Abstract:    Utilising fibres in concrete was introduced in early 1900s. Since then large variety of fibres are experimented and being practiced effectively around the world. The prime concern was the improvisation of concrete properties. With time, the scenario gets diverted towards utilisation of wastes and by products from industry and municipal wastes especially the plastic wastes were in concern. The most stable form of plastic wastes made them non biodegradable and somewhat difficult to recycle. In last ten years, large range of various wastes are added to concrete as dual solution towards mitigation of waste management problems and reducing natural material use as concrete constituent. This paper presents the experimental investigation of feasibility of polyethylene post consumer waste used for food packaging along with fly ash as another by product of thermal power stations. The ample numbers of samples were prepared in M10 concrete mix with two different water/ cement ratio. Plastic waste was converted in fibre form and added from 0% to 1.5% of volume along with variation of fly ash from 0% to 30% of volume. Different curing conditions were used to note the effect of chemical attack and corresponding change in the compressive strength of the concrete mix.

Pi & Fuzzy Logic Controller Based Multi Converter Unified Power Quality Conditioner

Abstract:    A  new unified power-quality conditioning system  (MC-UPQC) ,  is proposed in this paper as a new custom power device for a two-bus/two-feeder distribution system. The response of the Multi converter unified power quality conditioner, for different types of controllers are studied. This paper capable of simultaneous   compensation for voltage and current in multibus/multifeeder systems. In this configuration, one shunt voltage-source converter (shunt VSC) and two or more series VSCs exist. The system can be applied to adjacent feeders to compensate for supply-voltage and load current imperfections on the main feeder and full compensation of supply voltage imperfections on the other feeders. In the proposed configuration, all converters are connected back to back on the dc side and share a common dc-link capacitor. Therefore, power can be transferred from one feeder to adjacent feeders to compensate for sag/swell and interruption. In order to regulate the dc-link capacitor voltage, Conventionally, a proportional controller (PI) is used to maintain the dc-link voltage at the reference value. The transient response of the PI dc-link voltage controller is slow. So, a fast acting dc-link voltage controller based on the energy of a dc-link  capacitor  is proposed. The transient response of this controller is very fast when compared to that of the conventional dc-link voltage controller. By using fuzzy logic controller instead of the PI  controller the transient response is improved. The detailed simulation studies are carried out to validate the proposed controller. The performance of the proposed configuration has been verified through simulation studies using MATLAB/SIMULATION on a two-bus/two-feeder system.

Image Enhancement using Guided Image Filter Technique

Abstract:    In this paper we study and implement image enhancement aspect of guided image filtering. Principle objective of Image enhancement is to process an image so that result is more suitable than original image for specific application. Digital image enhancement techniques provide a multitude of choices for improving the visual quality of images. Guided image filter is an explicit image filter, derived from a local linear model; it generates the filtering output by considering the content of a guidance image, which can be the input image itself or another dierent image. Moreover, the guided filter has a fast and non-approximate linear-time algorithm, whose computational complexity is independent of the filtering kernel size. This paper will provide an overview of underlying concepts, along with algorithms commonly used for image enhancement.

Wavelet Transform Based Image Denoise Using Threshold Approaches

Abstract:    This paper deals with the threshold estimation method for image denoising in the wavelet transform domain. The proposed technique is based upon the discrete wavelet transform analysis where the algorithm of wavelet threshold is used to calculate the value of threshold. The proposed method is more efficient and adaptive because the parameter required for calculating the threshold based on sub band data. The threshold value is computed by xσ2w0 /σ where x is the scale parameter which depends upon the sub band size and number of decomposition and σw0 is the noise variance estimation. σ are the wavelet coefficient variance estimation in various sub bands. Experimental results on several test images are compared with popular denoise technique from three aspects (PSNR, RMSE and CoC).

Paper Title:

Application Aware Energy Efficient Geographic Greedy Forwarding in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks

Abstract:    Finding maximum number of node-disjoint paths for transmission has always been a prime aim to achieve reliability, security, load balancing and improved performance. Finding paths that lead to maximum network lifetime is the other extreme that is desired. Algorithm that aims at one of the requirements tends to oppose the other. In this paper, we propose an Application Aware Energy Efficient Geographic Greedy Forwarding (AAEEGF) routing algorithm for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) that is a trade- off between finding maximum number of node disjoint paths and finding paths with maximum network lifetime. AAEEGF takes into account both the requirements of real time multimedia transmission and the realistic characteristics of WMSNs. It finds list of node-disjoint routing paths with improved lifetime with path delays less than time constraint of the application. AAEEGF supports three features: (1) hole-bypassing, (2) explore maximum number of node disjoint path, and (3) lifetime improvement of paths, at the same time. AAEEGF is a pure geographic greedy forwarding routing algorithm and is an extension to Two-Phase geographic Greedy Forwarding (TPGF) [1]. Exploring paths in AAEEGF is time constraint dependent. All the paths obtained as a result have path delay less than time constraint of application. Unnecessary paths, whose end-to-end delays may exceed time constraint, are not formed, thereby making such nodes to be available for other useful path formation. This point allows more nodes to be available for AAEEGF to explore more routing paths, and enables AAEEGF to be different from many existing geographic routing algorithms like TPGF. AAEEGF improves lifetime of the found paths within the time constraint. Both theoretical analysis and simulation comparison in this paper indicate that AAEEGF is highly suitable for multimedia transmission in WMSNs.

A Relational Based Fuzzy Clustering To Mine User Profiles for Web Directory Personalization

Abstract:    The log data at a search engine can be used to analyze users’ search behavior and to develop search technologies to improve users’ search experiences. Web usage mining performs mining on web usage data or web logs. A web log is a listing of page reference data/clickstream data. The behavior of the web page readers is imprint in the web server log files.  By using the sequence of pages a user accesses, a user profile could be developed thus used in personalization. With personalization, web access or the contents of web page are modified to better fit the desires of the user and also to identify the browsing behavior of the user can improve system performance, enhance the quality and delivery of Internet Information services to the end user, and identify the population of potential customers. For this purpose a new clustering based approach is used, The proposed algorithm finds the meaningful behavior patterns extracted by applying efficient clustering algorithm, to log data. It is proved that performance of the proposed system is better than that of the existing algorithm. The proposed algorithm can provide popular information from web page visitors for web personalization.

Paper Title:

Measuring Reliability of an Aspect Oriented Software Using Fuzzy Logic Approach

Abstract:    Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) refers to the programming approach which isolates secondary and supporting functions from the main program’s business logic.  The application’s modularity increased in that way and its maintenance becomes significantly easier. Apart from the functional requirements while developing any software, we should also consider some non functional requirements like Reliability, Adaptability, and Suitability etc. In this paper an attempt has been made to quantifying the reliability of aspect oriented software using ISO/IEC 9126 Model. Due to the unpredictable nature of software quality attributes, the fuzzy multi criteria approach has been used to evolve the quality of the software.

Human Facial Expression Recognition using Eigen Face and Neural Network

Abstract:    In many face recognition systems the important part is face detection. The task of detecting face is complex due to its variability present across human faces including color, pose, expression, position and orientation. A face detection system based on principal component analysis algorithm and neural network techniques. Facial expression as a natural and efficient way of communication, it can also be considered as a special case of pattern recognition and also many techniques are available. In principal component analysis algorithm, eigenvector and Eigenfaces are identified the initial face image set and these faces are projected onto the Eigenfaces for calculating the weights. These weights created a face database to recognize the face by using neural network. Classification of face detection and token matching can be carried out any neural network for recognizing the facial expression.

Performance Analysis of Wireless Power Transfer to the Implantable Drug Delivery System using Helical Antenna with Inductive Coupling

Abstract:    In this paper, we explore the feasibility of wireless power transfer(WPT) to the drug delivery system(DDS) using helical antenna .We investigated the efficiency through different parameters of helical antenna. Helical Antenna (HA) is used here as a primary and secondary coil which works based on the inductive coupling. Through this technology we can reduce the wires or we eliminate the complications and infections caused by the wires. The aim of the system is transfer the power efficiently to the drug delivery system implanted in human body. We studied the inductive coupling and coupling coefficient of the primary and secondary coil and we studied the electrical characteristics of the antenna with equivalent circuit. Inductive power transfer is the most common method of wireless power transfer to the implantable drug delivery system. For good inductive coupling and better efficiency the inductors should have high inductance.

Optimal Denoising Of an Image Using Anscombe Transformation Based Image Stabilization

Abstract:    This paper proposes an effective inversing of the anscombe transformation with the help of adaptive bilateral image denoising algorithm. The Poisson noise removal is carried out into three steps. They are First, Image pre-processin,. Second, image denoising and Third, Image retrieval. In image pre-processing the images of any format can be got as input they are then converted into gray scale images for ease of functions and this paper uses anscombe transform to stabilize the image to a constant intensity level. This is very helpful in determining the noise at low counts. For image denoising, Multiscale variance stabilizing transform is the technique that is proposed to denoise the image. Now the noisy pixels in the images are removed. This paper also proposes a similar neighborhood function that is essential for filling the noisy pixels with the help of non-local means of similar neighbors. This is suitable for overall adjustment of the image. But in the case of texture images this technique is not applicable and in that condition the technique proposed is bilateral transformation of texture images. For this we use Bilateral image denoising and PCA analysis. This paper also proposes an approach to determine the best among the two processes in terms of performance and efficiency. Next step is very crucial because the application of inverse transformation is an critical factor. The inverse transform that is proposed in this paper is minimum mean square error method. This results in retrieval of an image with efficient filtering and inversing functions.

Proximal Interpolation in Image Zooming Using Advanced Neighborhood Algorithm

Abstract:    Image zooming, the process of enlarging the image is a direct application of image interpolation procedures. Image interpolation is the process of determining the unknown values of an image at positions lying between some known values. The existing system used the PDE-based curvature interpolation method for image zooming by edge-detection. The proposed work also includes the neighborhood regions. The basic interpolation technique i.e. Proximal or nearest-neighbor interpolation is applied. In this technique, the output pixel is assigned the value of the pixel that the point falls within and no other pixels are considered. This is achieved using the advanced neighborhood algorithm for image zooming. Here the input image can be a grayscale, RGB, or binary image. This algorithm computes each output pixel by taking the value of each input pixel and distributes it to the corresponding output pixel's 3-by-3 neighborhood. The proposed algorithm performs median filtering for the image matrix using the 3-by-3 neighborhood as a smoothing procedure to reduce the artifacts like blurring, jagging and ghosting. The proposed zooming algorithm works with different image types.

Testing Digital Signals by Low Cost ARM Based Logic Analyzer

Abstract:    Due to the fast development of electronic devices, the digital circuit designing takes up more and more percentage in total electronic developments thus in the process of debugging and doing validation in a digital system, one of the common task a designer need to do is the acquisition of digital waveforms. The waveforms can be captured  by the device  Logic Analyzer. As digital circuit is too fast to be observed by a human being, the basic idea to capture waveforms at higher speed is to implement the design using ARM controller which internally uses RISC Machine unlike simple processors. ARM based embedded systems, providing a low-cost solution to meet the request of flexibility and testability Logic analyzer is a dedicated application The main objective is to use module as powerful Lab equipment to check and verify the design under test (digital circuit) for design and verification engineers with smaller size and less expensive.

Formation of Virtual Lenses with the Help of Puissance Radio Telescopic Satellites around the Planets

Abstract:    The technological development of humans has successfully faced all the brutal difficulties it came across. Today’s world has almost nothing which it cannot achieve, yet the thirst for innovation has not decreased. We have the most puissance telescopes located at different parts of the world which can track pretty much information regarding the changes that occur in the celestial bodies in the outer space with in no time, but the changes that occur in them is much faster than the captivity speed of the telescopes . This is the point where we need to throw some light, to build something which is capable of capturing the fastest changes that happen in outer space. This paper deals with launching of radio telescopic satellites in orbits around the planets of our solar system. By launching radio telescopic satellites around some of the worthy planets in our solar system, the view of the multiverse will be improved beyond our imagination. This kind of placement of radio telescopic satellites around the planets will aid in taking a dynamic look at the changes that occur in the outer space and leaves us enough time to be on safe side before the actual disaster happens, more over this arrangement of telescopic satellites will help us to predict the change of path of  celestial object in due course of time and also to track the most distant celestial bodies in the outer space.

SOC Implementation of Soft-Error Tolerance in Asynchronous Burst Mode Circuits

Abstract:    The problem of soft errors in asynchronous burst-mode machines (ABMMs), and we propose the solution is an error tolerance approach, which leverages the inherent functionality of Muller C- elements, along with a variant of duplication, to suppress all transient errors. The proposed method is more robust and less expensive than the typical triple modular  redundancy  error  tolerance  method  and often even less expensive than previously proposed concurrent error detection methods, which only provide detection but no correction The   solution is an error tolerance approach, which leverages the inherent functionality of Muller C-elements, along with a variant of duplication, to suppress all transient errors, which leverages a newly devised soft- error susceptibility assessment method for ABMMs, along with partial duplication, to suppress a carefully chosen subset of transient errors. Progressively more powerful options for partial duplication select among individual gates, complete state/output logic cones or partial state/output logic cones and enable efficient exploration of the tradeoff between the achieved soft- error susceptibility reduction and the incurred area overhead. Furthermore, a gate-decomposition method is developed to leverage the additional soft-error susceptibility reduction opportunities arising during conversion of a two-level ABMM implementation into a multilevel one. Extensive experimental results on benchmark ABMMs assess the effectiveness of the proposed methods reducing soft-error susceptibility, and their impact on area, performance, and offline testability.

Analysis of Different Security Attacks in MANETs on Protocol Stack A-Review

Abstract:    A MANET is an infrastructure-less type network, which consists of number of mobile nodes with wireless network interfaces In order to make communication among nodes, the nodes dynamically establish paths among one another. The nature and structure of such networks makes it attractive to various types of attackers. In this paper we discuss various types of attacks on various layers under protocol stack. Different types of attacker attempts different approaches to decrease the network performance, throughput. In this paper the principal focus is on routing and security issues associated with mobile ad hoc networks which are required in order to provide secure communication. On the basis of the nature of attack interaction, the attacks against MANET may be classified into active and passive attacks. Attackers against a network can be classified into two groups: insider and outsider. Whereas an outsider attacker is not a legitimate user of the network, an insider attacker is an authorized node and a part of the routing mechanism on MANETs.

Document Categorization Using Reinforcement Learning

Abstract:    Automatic categorization of documents has become an important research issue since the explosion of digital and online text information. The text information is stored in the form of files and documents and to extract this particular information, a well-defined process is followed. The organization of documents is not so easy task. So there is need to present these documents in a categorized form. A particular text document is categorized, on the basis of high frequency words. So, the main idea is to convert the unstructured documents into structured form. The final goal is to achieve high accuracy in the formation of categories by following particular steps.

Paper Title:

Improving Medical Image Segmentation Techniques Using Multiphase Level Set Approach Via Bias Correction

Abstract:    In this paper, we present a new variational formulation for geometric active contours that forces the level set function to be close to a signed distance function, and therefore completely eliminates the need of the costly re-initialization procedure. Our variational formulation consists of an internal energy term that penalizes the deviation of the levelset function from a signed distance function, and an external energy term that drives the motion of the zero level set toward the desired image features, such as object boundaries. The resulting evolution of the level set function is the gradient flow that minimizes the overall energy functional.

Image Encryption and Decryption using AES

Abstract:    In today’s world most of the communication is done using electronic media. Data Security is widely used to ensure security in communication, data storage and transmission. We have Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) which is accepted as a symmetric cryptography standard for transferring block of data securely. The available AES algorithm is used for text data and it is also suitable for image encryption and decryption to protect the confidential image data from an unauthorized access. This project proposes a method in which the image data is an input to AES Encryption to obtain the encrypted image, and the encrypted image is the input to AES Decryption to get the original image. In this paper, we implement the 128 bit AES for image encryption and decryption which is synthesized and simulated on FPGA family of Spartan-6 (XC6SLX25) using Xilinx ISE 12.4 tool in Very high speed integrated circuit Hardware Description Language (VHDL) and shall be verified with the help of its simulation result.

Development of Embedded Web Server Configured on FPGA Using Soft-core Processor and Web Client on PC

Abstract:    A soft processor is an Intellectual Property (IP) core that is implemented using the logic primitives of the FPGA. Key benefits of having a soft FPGA-based processing system are re programmability and re-configurability. There are various soft-core processors provided by different vendors such as Microblaze (Xilinx), NiosII (Altera), OpenRISC (developed by OpenCores) etc. Microblaze processor is one of those soft-core processor developed by Xilinx which models specific processor using HDL and can be customized (and synthesized) for any application. The Microblaze soft processor is a soft 32-bit RISC processor. FPGA with soft core processor has wide variety of applications mainly in automobiles, medical field, entertainment electronics and industrial control system.  In this project, a  soft processor (Microblaze) based embedded system is developed with RS-232 serial interface, Ethernet interface, 32MB SDRAM,  4MB PROM (platform flash), 16x2 LCD interface,  8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs. The embedded systems is connected to the internet and remotely controlled and monitored. The TCP/IP stack is ported on Microblaze and Embedded Webserver is developed on FPGA board using HTTP communication protocol. A Web browser based interface (client) is developed in VB.NET (with HTML and AJAX Controls) on Personal Computer (PC) to communicate with the FPGA board using HTTP through TCP/IP protocol. Ethernet connectivity is tested between Embedded Web server on Microblaze and Web client on PC. Messages sent from the client side can be displayed over LCD on Webserver. Client can send commands to board for controlling IO’s, for reading from RAM and for writing on RAM. Status check command sent by the client computer to Webserver updates the browser on PC to show status of IO’s.  It can also be used as slave processor to provide Ethernet connectivity to any 8- bit, 16-bit and 32- bit processors. TFTP server is also deployed in the Embedded Webserver Card so as to provide file transfer access to/from the client (Computer / Other Processor)

Development, Integration and Verification of VHDL code for FPGA based Beam Position Measurement Board

Abstract:    Continuous increase in FPGA capacity, architectural features and performance, along with decrease in cost, results in an ideal solution to hardware system designers. The embedded designer who is serious about increasing performance must consider the FPGAs ability to accelerate the processor performance with dedicated hardware. Although this technique consumes FPGA resources, the performance improvements can be extraordinary. Thus FPGA based VME Bus compatible four channels ADC card is used to acquire the Beam Position Indicator (BPI) electrode data, and calculate the beam position using an intelligence device (FPGA) on board. This card is having on-board 4-channel ADC (with signal conditioning electronics) and 8-channel Opto-coupler inputs. Additionally there is a memory available on-board to save calculated beam position. In all, the system is VME based so this card is a VME slave board where VME CPU card will be able to control the card and read the calculated beam position whenever it is available in memory.

A High Performance Binary Data Compression Technique Using Low Puncturing Turbo Codes

Abstract:    In this paper, we present a distributed coding technique for binary data compression. The performance of the proposed architecture is higher when compared with the existing techniques. The complexity of the traditional encoder is distributed to the decoder. Thus the proposed architecture can be used for the applications where the complexity of decoder can be more than that of an encoder.

Design and Construction of Refrigerant Charge Level Detecting Device in HVAC/R System with Microcontroller

Abstract:    A charge level detecting device in residential and light commercial heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems and in refrigeration systems is used to detect the sufficiency of refrigerant or charge level whether it is proper or not. The most common problems affecting residential and commercial HVAC/R systems are slow refrigerant leaks, improper refrigerant charge and charging device. The usual methods for charge level detection are sight glass method and system high side and low side pressure measurement method. The limitation of sight glass method is it works only if a predictable amount of refrigerant remains in one part of system or constant flow of refrigerant is maintained throughout the system. Pressure of any HVAC/R system cannot be measured in a running system, and charge leaks occur in case of pressure method. Refrigerant charge level detecting device employs a method of determining if the refrigerant charge is within an acceptable range, including the steps of measuring the superheat and subcool temperatures at compressor inlet and condenser outlet. Actual superheat and actual subcooling values are calculated and these values are thus compared with target superheat and target subcool values in microcontroller device, thus obtained from manufacturers chart for particular type of refrigerant, which values depends on outdoor dry bulb temperature and indoor wet bulb temperature on system operating situation and shows the charge status result. The refrigerant charge indicator is based on the fact that when refrigerant starts to leak, the evaporator coil temperature starts to drop and the level of liquid sub cooling drops. An over charge in this system results in compressor flooding, damaging to the motor and mechanical components. Inadequate refrigerant charge can lead to increased power consumption, thus reducing system capacity and efficiency.

Wind Power Technology Schemes as Renewable Energy in Bangladesh

Abstract:    Wind energy is one of the renewable means of electricity generation that is a part of the worldwide discussion on the future of energy generation and use. Usage of wind energy has been increased in recent times especially because it is a running demand to use alternative energy sources and reduce fossil fuels consumption. This paper presents the schemes to use this technology in Bangladesh because it has a 724 km long coastline and many small islands in the Bay of Bengal, where strong southwesterly wind and sea breeze blow in the summer season and there is gentle northeasterly wind and breeze in winter months. It could produce 2,000 MW of power in the coastal belt installing 30 windmills per square km. The windmills that can be installed in the coastal belts can sustain 250 km per hour cyclonic storm. The scope of setting large scale power plant in coastal areas will be discussed in this paper.

Energy Efficient Conflict Free Query Scheduling For Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract:    There is an increase in demand of high performance query services, with the emergence of high data rate applications. To meet this challenge we propose Dynamic Conflict-free Query Scheduling (DCQS), a novel scheduling technique for queries in wireless sensor networks. In contrast to earlier Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) designed for query services in wireless sensor networks. DCQS has several unique features. First, it optimizes the query performance through conflict-free transmission scheduling based on the temporal properties of queries in wireless sensor networks. Second, it can adapt to workload changes without explicitly reconstructing the transmission schedule. Furthermore, DCQS also provides predictable performance in terms of the maximum achievable query rate. The nodes operate over the time-varying wireless channel whose quality significantly fluctuates over time due to fading and interference. Such time-varying nature of wireless channel imposes many constraints in designing an energy-efficient transmission scheme. In this work, we derive a tight bound on the maximum query rate achieved under DCQS. Such a bound is of practical importance since it can be used to prevent network overload. NS2 simulations demonstrate that energy efficient DCQS significantly outperforms 802.11 in terms of energy efficiency, over head, query latency, and throughput, thereby increasing the network life time.

Palmprint Identification Based On DWT, DCT And QPCA 

Abstract:    An individual can be identified effectively using palmprints. In this paper we propose palmprint identification based on DWT, DCT and QPCA (PIDDQ). Histogram equalization is used on palmprint to enhance contrast of an image. The DWT is applied on Histogram equalized image to generate LL, LH, HL and HH bands. The LL band is converted into DCT coefficients using DCT. QPCA is applied on DCT coefficients to generate features. The test and database palmprint features are compared using Euclidean Distance (ED). It is observed that the proposed method gives better performance compared to existing method.

Sensitive Region Prediction using Data Mining Technique

Abstract:    Surveys provide huge amounts of healthcare data which, unfortunately, are not used to discover hidden information for effective decision making. Discovery of hidden patterns and relationships can provide a powerful prediction technique for predicting regions which are sensitive for several diseases. Advanced data mining techniques can help to predict future number of cases of a disease. This research has developed a prototype, Sensitive Region Prediction System (SRPS), using data mining technique, called Linear Regression. Using historical data from various sources such as regional surveys and health reports, it can predict the number of cases of malaria disease. SRPS is user-friendly, platform independent, scalable, portable and expandable. It is implemented on the Java platform.

Comparison of Dilution of Precision (DOP) in Multipath and Error free Environment using Single Frequency Global Positioning System

Abstract:    Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite based radio navigation system intended to provide highly accurate three dimensional positions and precise time on a continuous global basis. Usually, GPS accuracy is limited by several factors such as atmospheric, receiver and satellite based errors. Among them, Dilution of Precision (DOP) and multipath errors are very important to investigate the error for improving positional accuracy. In this paper, single frequency receiver data analysis in static mode is carried out. Using the GPS data, Horizontal Dilution of Precision (HDOP) results were presented. The presented preliminary results would be useful for developing suitable techniques for improving single frequency GPS positional accuracy by taking the HDOP errors into the consideration.

Comparison of Security Algorithms in a Distributed Monitoring Environment

Abstract:    In a Real time wireless environment like WIFI, we send the data in the form of packets from one location to other. While sending the data to destination safely, we maintain some security algorithms for the confidentiality of the data. We use the knowledge of many pre- existing algorithm mechanisms for the smooth flow of the data packets in a timely & secured manner. Here, the main objective is to compare the various security algorithms in ganglia distributed monitoring system. The research stimulates that comparing the constant algorithms (1-point/minimal & 10-point/maximal) with the variable (optimal) algorithms. From these it can be concluded that the CPU memory usage is less in optimal algorithm in terms of against high load, bytes- in, bytes-out characteristics.

  1-point or minimal, 10point or maximal, optimal algorithms and ganglia.
