Paper Title:

Static Analysis and Optimisation of Chassis and Suspension of an All-Terrain Vehicle

Abstract:    The project was aimed to design the frame & suspension of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Baja car which is a single-seated all-terrain vehicle and is used for off road usage and endurance on a rough terrain. In many aspects it is similar to an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) except that it is much smaller in size and has safer rollover capabilities. The modeling of the frame and suspension is done by using pro-e software. This design is checked by Finite Element Analysis after estimating the load and the weight of the frame optimized.

Paper Title:

Study on Shear Behaviour of High Strength Concrete (HSC) Slender Beams

Abstract:    In this paper an experimental investigation is carried out on Twelve HSC beams with constant width (125 mm) and effective depth (100 mm) by varying (i) shear span to depth ratio, (ii) the longitudinal reinforcement ratio and (iii) the minimum web reinforcement ratio were casted and tested to understand the shear behavior of the beams with minimum web reinforcement as per IS CODE and ACI CODE and maximum web reinforcement as per IS CODE. The load-deflection behavior and the failure pattern of the beams, ultimate shear strength and reserve shear strength are studied with varying a/d ratio and longitudinal reinforcement. The results obtained are compared with the different codal equations. Based on these observations, it can be concluded that, there are many parameters influencing the shear behavior of RC beams such as shear span to depth ratio (a/d ratio>2), concrete grade, depth of the beam and the percentage of the longitudinal reinforcement The results obtained were compared with the different codal equations. The British code model is proposed for the present work.

Paper Title:

Nonlinear Dynamics of a BJT Based Colpitts Oscillator with Tunable Bias Current

Abstract:    The effect of bias current variation in the dynamics of a conventional BJT based Colpitts Oscillator (CO) has been thoroughly examined in this paper. After formulating a suitable ac equivalent model of the CO taking care of the dc bias current, the dynamics of the system has been numerically studied. It is observed that in a CO circuit with given design parameter, a periodic oscillation starts for a critical bias current and with the variation of the bias current to a higher value chaotic oscillations are observed through a period doubling root. A prototype hardware experiment in the low RF band CO supports the observations obtained by the numerical simulations. The change in chaoticity with the variation of the operating bias current is observed by finding Maximum Lyapunov exponent (MLE) from numerically and experimentally obtained time series of the CO output data. The technique of bias current variation could be applicable in any frequency range including Microwave band, in principle and it has important application potential in chaos based communication systems for encoding information bits into chaotic signals.

Hand Gesture Recognition via Covariance Method

Abstract:    Gesture is a powerful form of communication among humans. This paper presents simple as well as effective method of realizing hand gesture recognition using Covariance Method. First an image database is created which constitutes various static hand gesture images. These images are a subset of American Sign Language (ASL). Preprocessing of the image is done so as to reduce the amount of noise present in the image. Eigen values of the Eigen vectors are calculated. A pattern recognition system is used to transform an image into feature vector i.e. Eigen image, which will then be compared with the trained set of gestures. The method used was successful to retrieve the correct match.

Voltage Control of Variable Speed Induction Generator Using PWM Converter

Abstract:    The paper describes a simple control structure for a stand-alone Induction Generator (IG) used to operate under variable speeds. Fuzzy Logic Control (FLC) has been developed to automatically vary the duty-cycle of the PWM converter such that to maintain the DC-link voltage constant. The required reactive power for the variable-speed IG is supplied by means of the PWM converter and a capacitor bank to build up the voltage of the IG without the need for a battery and to reduce the rating of the PWM converter with the need for only three sensors. This proposed scheme has been used efficiently for variable speed wind or hydro energy conversion systems. The measurements of the IG system at various speeds and loads are given and show that this proposed system is capable of good DC voltages regulation. The proposed system has been simulated using MATLAB-SIMULINK software and verified the theoretical analysis.

Reading Users’ Minds from Their Eyes: A Method for Implicit Image Annotation

Abstract:    This paper explores the possible solutions for image annotation and retrieval by implicitly monitoring user attention via eye-tracking. Features are extracted from the gaze trajectory of users examining sets of images to provide implicit information on the target template that guides visual attention. Here Gaze Inference System (GIS) is a fuzzy logic based framework that analyzes the gaze-movement features to assign a user interest level (UIL) from 0 to 1 to every image that appeared on the screen. Because some properties of the gaze features are unique for every user, our user adaptive framework builds a new processing system for every new user to achieve higher accuracy. The generated UILs can be used for image annotation purposes; however, the output of this system is not limited as it can be used also for retrieval or other scenarios. The developed framework produces promising and reliable UILs where approximately 53% of target images in the users’ minds can be identified by the machine with an error of less than 20% and the top 10% of them with no error.  As show in this paper that the existing information in gaze patterns can be employed to improve the machine’s judgment of image content by assessment of human interest and attention to the objects inside virtual environments.

Abstract:    Micro-hydro-electric power is both an efficient and reliable formof clean source of renewable energy. It can be an excellent method of harnessing renewable energy from small rivers and streams. The micro-hydro project designed to be a run -of-river type, because it requires very little or no reservoir in order to power the turbine. The water will run straight through the turbine and back into the river or stream to use it for the other purposes. This has a minimal environmental impact on the local ecosystem.
The design procedure of micro-hydro power plant was implemented by a Matlab Simulink computer program to calculate all the design parameters. The choice of the turbine type depending mainly on the site head and flow rate. The turbine power and speed were directly proportional with the site head, but there were specific points for maximum turbine power and speed with the variation of the site water flow rate. The head losses in the penstock could range from 5 to 10 percent of the gross head, depending on the length of the penstock, quantity of water flow rate and its velocity. The turbine efficiency  could range from 80 to 95 percent depending on the turbine type, and the generator efficiency about 90 percent. 
The design study showed that construction of micro-hydro-electric project was feasible in the project site and there were no major problems apparent at the design and implementation stages of the micro-hydro-electric power plant.

Paper Title:

Mitigating Phase Noise Effects in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing System Using   Phase Locked Loop

Abstract:    Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing System are better suited to the today’s generation 3G networks and upcoming 4G networks in terms of bandwidth efficiency due to overlapping of frequency bands, high speed data transfer due to parallel data transfer, maintaining high quality of wireless link even under multipath conditions due to low symbol rate it minimizes ISI effects. The application of channel codes like convolution codes further reduces the Bit Error Rate and improves the link reliability. Although OFDM systems shows superior performance over single carrier and FDM system but there is one disadvantage that is the over sensitivity to Phase noise of the local oscillator which hinders the orthogonality  of the sub carriers and increases inter carrier interference. OFDM system performance is degraded due to phase noise. Accordingly going deep into the various parameters of the OFDM system it was observed that Phase Locked Loop (PLL) could better control the phase noise problem in comparison to free running oscillator. It is deployed at the downlink side of incoming signal received from Antenna generating its own local frequency slightly higher than the incoming frequency to generate IF signal (after mixing the incoming and the local frequency) for further processing. Accordingly to examine closely the other aspects of PLL in relation to Free Running Local Oscillator various parameters of PLL in relation to OFDM system were studied in detail.

Dynamic Simulation of Robust Sensorless Speed Measurement in IM Using MRAC against Variations in Stator Resistance and Rotor-Time Constant

Abstract:   This paper proposes a Model Reference Adaptive Control (MRAC) which makes use of both back EMF and Reactive Power methods for sensorless rotor speed measurement against variations in rotor time constant in addition to the variations in stator resistance. The adjustable model makes use of these two methodologies eliminates the need to calculate rotor flux, thus avoiding the requirement of synchronously rotating reference angle and the stable speed can also be estimated even at low speeds. The effectiveness of the proposed model is proved with extensive computer simulation.

Solar Panel Tracking System for GSM Based Agriculture System

Abstract:   Solar modules are devices that cleanly convert sunlight into electricity and offer a practical solution to the problem of power generation in remote areas. This project involves the development of an Automatic Solar radiation tracker that could be further used for agriculture purpose, making use of a GSM Module as the control system. Fossil fuels are a relatively short-term energy source consequently; the uses of alternative sources such as solar energy are becoming more wide spread. To make solar energy more viable, the efficiency of solar array systems must be maximized. A feasible approach to maximizing the efficiency of solar array systems is sun tracking. Proposed in this paper is a system that controls the movement of a solar array so that it is constantly aligned towards the direction of the sun. The solar tracker designed and constructed in this paper offers a reliable and affordable method of aligning a solar module with the sun in order to maximize its energy output. Automatic Sun Tracking System is a hybrid hardware/software prototype, which automatically provides best alignment of solar panel with the sun, to get maximum output (electricity). The system will be implemented for irrigation purpose wherein the irrigation system will be controlled using a GSM technology

Fault Diagnosis of Analog Circuits Using dc Approach

Abstract:    Fault diagnosis of circuit is a key problem of theory of circuit networks and especially with the development of electronic technique at high speed, the increasing complexity of electronic equipment and altitudinal integration of electronic circuit, it is of importance in particular. Testing and diagnosis of electronic devices are fundamental topics in the development and maintenance of safe and reliable complex systems. In both cases, the attention is focused on the detection of faults affecting a subsystem whose appearance generally impairs the global system safety and performance. In a complete fault diagnosis procedure, fault detection and isolation must be carried out together; the effectiveness of the procedure depends on fault detection and isolation performance as well as the complexity of the test phase. While there are established techniques to obtain an automatic diagnosis for a digital circuit, the development of an effective automated diagnosis tool for analog or mixed circuits is still an open research field. For more than two decades, the subject of fault location in analog circuits has been of interest to researchers in circuits and systems. In recent years this interest has intensified and a number of promising results has emerged.

Investigation of Adaptive Multipath Routing For Load Balancing In MANET

Abstract:    In mobile ad hoc network (MANET), congestion is one of the most important limitations that affect the performance of the whole network. Multi-path routing protocol can balance and share the load better than the single path routing protocol in ad hoc networks, thereby reducing the congestion possibility by dividing the traffic in alternative paths.  The performance of the network can be improved by using a load balancing mechanism. Such a mechanism transfers load from overloaded nodes to under loaded nodes. The objective of multipath routing is to improve the reliability and throughput and favors load balancing. Multipath routing allows the establishment of multiple paths between a pair of source and destination node. It is typically proposed in order to increase the reliability of data transmission or to provide load balancing and has received more and more attentions. In this paper, some of the congestion removing and load balancing routing schemes have been surveyed. The relative strengths and weaknesses of the protocols have also been studied which allow us to identify the areas for future research.

A Hybrid Approach for Securing Biometric Template

Abstract:    Biometrics authentication provides highest level of security. It allows the user to get authenticated using his or her own physical or behavioral characteristics. Unimodal biometrics have several problems such as noisy data, spoof attacks etc. which cause data insecure. To overcome these problems multimodal biometrics is used. Multimodal biometrics allows fusing two or more characteristics into single identification. It leads to more secure and accurate data. In this paper, we have combined two characteristics –one physical and one behavioral and further a key is added to the template to make it more secure. The template is finally stored in database.

Paper Title:

Detection of Remnant Material and Its Quantification

Abstract:   Loading-unloading of goods is an essential task that is undertaken at every industrial site. Mines witness a large scale transportation activity. As the volume of such goods is large in size, the mode of transport used for delivery is usually dumpers. Huge cranes load the dumpers at one location with some material and then the dumper moves to the desired destination for unloading. After the unloading process, the dumper may still hold some residual matter in its dumping bed which may be misused stealthily; theft of which may amount to huge loss for the concerned industry. This paper mainly discusses attempts in the direction to devise an automatic system that will detect and quantify the remnant material which is left behind in the dump-trucks after the unloading process is formally completed. In this piece of research we have applied grey level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) and Material specific techniques to detect the carry back for materials like aluminium, coal, copper, iron ore, manganese and lime stone. Results of both these approaches have been compared.

Paper Title:

Effect of Polypropylene Fibers on Development of Fresh and Hardened Properties of Recycled Self-compacting Concrete

Abstract:    The current research intends to study the possibility of producing fiber recycled self-compacting concrete (FRSCC) using demolitions as a coarse aggregate (crushed red brick and crushed ceramic). Polypropylene fibers were used in recycled self-compacting concrete (RSCC) to improve fresh and hardened properties of this type of concrete. Thirty one concrete mixes were prepared to achieve the aim proposed in this paper. Polypropylene fiber volume fraction varied from 0 to 1.5% of the volume of concrete with aspect ratio 12.5. The fresh properties of FRSCC were evaluated using slump flow, J-ring and V-funnel tests. Compressive strength, tensile strength, flexural strength tests were performed in order to investigate mechanical properties. Density was performed to investigate the physical properties The results cleared that; the optimum volume fraction of polypropylene fibers was 0.19% and 0.75% for the mixes contained crushed red break and ceramic as a coarse aggregate, respectively. At optimum volume fraction of polypropylene fibers; the mixes with 25, 50, 75 and 100% of crushed ceramic yields to improve in the compressive strength by 18.4, 26.3, 21.2 and 14.8%, respectively compared to the mixes with crushed red brick as a recycled aggregate was observed.

Paper Title:

A Novel Approach for Facial Expression Recognition Using Euclidean Distances

Abstract:    There has been a growing interest in automatic face and facial expression recognition from facial images due to a variety of potential applications in law enforcement, security control, and human computer interaction. However, despite of all the advances in automatic facial expression recognition, it still remains a challenging problem. This paper describes an idea of recognizing the human face even in the presence of strong facial expressions using the Eigen face method. The features extracted from the face image sequences can be efficiently used for face and facial expression recognition. Firstly, we compute the Eigen value and Eigen vectors of the input image and then finally the input facial image was recognized when similarity was obtained by calculating the minimum Euclidean distance between the input image and the different expressions.

Speech Enhancement Using DCT

Abstract:    The speech enhancement problem comprises of various problems characterized by the type of noise source, the nature of interaction between speech and noise, the number of sensor signals (microphone outputs) available for enhancement and the nature of the speech application. Noise reduction remains a demanding problem due to wide variety of background noise types (car noise, babble noise, cockpit noise, train noise, subway noise, etc.) and the difficulty in estimating their statistics. The connection of noise and clean signal is usually classified as additive/multiplicative/convolution. The additive model very often dominates in real-world applications.

Efficient Design and Implementation of 4-Degree of Freedom Robotic Arm

Abstract:   A robotic arm is a mechanical arm which is designed to perform a function similarly as a human arm does. It is usually programmable and arm may be a sum total of the mechanism or can be part of a complex robot. To design a robot, various links are being connected by joints allowing either a translational (linear) motion or a rotational motion in various planes. In many cases sensors are used in the arm that usually indicates the controller about the hardness by which the gripping is done by arm or directs the arm in directions in which it should move to perform the task or it tells the system about presence of object in front of it. Various aspects that are kept in mind while designing a robotic arm are torque calculation for each motor used, concept of inverse kinematics, interfacing to remote controller, ways for noise reduction in ADC   (analog-to-digital converter).We have designed this robotic arm using servos, ATmega32 microcontroller with interfacing analog joysticks controller. We have made some improvements in design by reducing the noises that were generated due to mechanical construction of the joystick which continuously varies and gives some noises. And also we have used the fact the mechanical system has larger response time as compared to associated electronics.  To overcome this we went for some software filters and algorithms following the ADC. Before this, we have introduced inverse kinematics with its difference from forward kinematics and various calculations related to it.

Scale Identification of an Audio Input

Abstract:   Generally a music piece plays on one single scale. Each scale is uniquely characterized by a set of specific notes. In this paper, a methodology is presented for the recognition of musical scales that are associated with any piece of music. The procedure of recognition is essentially based on the comparison between the combinations of notes occurring in any music piece, with a predefined set of notes denoting a scale. To determine scale from a musical recording, frequency of the note is the characteristic which is used to identify a note and differentiate it from other notes. The proposed methodology led to the development of a system which can be exploited by a beginner learning music. The system performed successful recognition for the 92% of the tested recordings. It should be noted that the proposed system can operate in real time.

Bearing Capacity on Slope Modeling with Composite Bamboo Pile Reinforcement

Abstract:    the footing that placed on slope surface will decrease bearing capacity of soil. The function of using composite bamboo pile is to increase bearing capacity of footing on slope and that is one of the innovative slope reinforcement methods which necessary for last few years. Slope modeling with composite bamboo reinforcement was using an experiment box with 1,50 m as length; 1,0 m as width and 1,0 m as height. It used sand soil with fine gradation and composite bamboo pile with various pile length and pile location. The load was modeled as a strip footing with continuous increasing load by load cell until the limit load has been reach. The problem occurred in laboratory has been analyzed with Finite Element Method. It changed 3D slope modeling to be 2D modeling. Composite bamboo pile has been chosen as a new utilization innovation of bamboo as reinforced pile and that’s a positive value to optimize bamboo local material as steel reinforced replacement material. The result of experiment using composite bamboo as pile reinforcement on slope has increased slope bearing capacity. It shown with significant increasing of bearing capacity and maximum limit load can be reached on slope.

Temperature- Aware Virtual Machine Scheduling in Green Clouds

Abstract:    This paper present the temperature- aware virtual machine scheduling in green clouds which is design to maintain the temperature of virtualized cloud system below critical temperature threshold by scheduling VMs according to temperature of node and insures reliable quality of service. High temperature gradients degrade reliability and performance therefore it requires vigorous cooling in order to keep the equipment and the software stable. Moreover, high energy  consumption  not  only  increases operational  cost, which  reduces  the profit  margin  of  Cloud  providers,  but  also  leads  to  high  carbon  emissions  which  is  not friendly for environment.  Thus apart from saving energy and money by avoiding huge investment on cooling, it also reduces carbon footprints.

Embedded Based Automated Student Attendance Governing System

Abstract:    In all aspects of our life, we encounter event recording applications very often. Recording of any entity be it sound, pictures, events etc. is very useful as it enables us to manipulate data to our requirements. One can exploit the full potential of the recorded information for specific user defined purposes. Keeping in mind the significance of event recorders in today’s world, we arrived at a common decision of making embedded based instrument. The major problem faced by organizations is time consumption in taking attendance. This project totally eliminates the paper work in maintaining the attendance of each student in schools, colleges or universities. This instrument is easily scalable up to 150 students in 8 different subjects. Our goal is to have electronic files containing details about each student and their attendance status. This paper will try to organize the current attendance record system that will be much quicker and save time of instructors.

Survey on Privacy and Data Security Issues in Cloud Computing

Abstract:    Cloud computing is a better way to run the business. Instead of running the apps by yourself, they are run on a shared data center. Cloud computing provides customers the illusion of infinite computing resources which are available from anywhere, anytime, on demand. Apart from these cloud computing is subject to privacy issues and security concerns. In this paper, we see the various types of issues in cloud computing and how to overcome that.

Thermal Analysis of A6061-Boron/Silicon Carbide Composite for In-plane Transverse Loading

Abstract:    A structural composite is a material system consisting of two or more phases on a macroscopic scale, whose mechanical performance and properties are designed to be superior to those of constituent materials acting independently. FRP composites are slowly emerging from the realm of advanced materials and are replacing conventional materials in a variety of applications. However, the mechanics of fiber-reinforced composites is complex owing to their anisotropic and heterogeneous characteristics. In this  paper,  the micromechanical  behavior of the  square  unit cell  of  a  fiber reinforced  composite  lamina consisting of   boron and Silicon Carbide fibers embedded  in Alumina matrix, has  been studied. A  three-dimensional finite  element model  with governing boundary conditions has  been developed from the unit cells  of square pattern  of the  composite to predict the  Thermal Gradient  and  Thermal Flux of A6061-Boron /  Silicon Carbide fiber reinforced  lamina  for various volume  Fraction . A finite element model incorporating the necessary boundary conditions is developed and is solved using commercially available FEA package to evaluate the Thermal properties. The variations of the Temperature at the fiber- matrix interface with respect to the Thermal Gradient & Thermal Flux are studied. This may result in the separation of fiber and matrix leading to deboning. This analysis is useful to realize the advantages of A6061-Boron / Silicon Carbide composites in structural applications, and to identify the locations with reasons where the Temperature is critical to damage the interface.  The present analysis is useful to identify the composite effect in selecting the materials for reasonable properties.

EESRBM: Energy Efficient Stateless Receiver Based Multicast Protocol for Ad Hoc Networks

Abstract:    Multicast routing is used to send the information or message to a group of destination nodes simultaneously in a single transmission from the source. Multicast routing protocols typically rely on the priori creation of a multicast tree (or mesh), which requires the individual nodes to maintain state information. This multicast state maintenance adds a large amount of communication, processing and memory overhead for no benefit to the application. Hence a stateless receiver-based multicast (RBMuticast) protocol was developed that simply uses a list of the multicast member’s addresses, embedded in packet headers to enable receivers to decide the best way to forward the multicast traffic. Nodes in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) are battery powered and hence have limited life time. This RBMuticast does not consider the energy of the nodes and hence a node may die due to its excessive utilization which can result in energy depletion problem and thereby affect overall network performance. This also makes the communication living time to decrease and communication cost to increase. Thus I have developed a stateless multicast protocol called “Energy Efficient Stateless RBMuticast protocol for Ad Hoc Networks”. This protocol called EESRBM considers a hop with energy saving such that it holds low transmitting receiving costs and thereby selecting a long-lived path from source to destination. This protocol is more efficient than any of the existing multicast protocols.

Monogamous Pairs Genetic Algorithm (MopGA)

Abstract:    As the race in producing better Genetic Algorithms (GAs) to alleviate the notorious premature convergence problems heats on, the danger of overly complex solutions, ignoring the practicality and feasibility of basic algorithms continues in some researches. In this paper, we propose a new variant of GA with decent complexity without loosing the search power. Our approach is inspired by the monogamous behavior observed in nature. The efficacy of MopGA is verified on nine benchmark numerical test functions. The results are mostly comparable to standard GA and even achieve better overall average reliability and speed.

Automatic Loading & Unloading CNC turning Centre DX 200

Abstract:    Manual work on CNC is normally done. Manual loading & unloading is time consumable & require manpower. Normally workers pick the component than load into the chuck & after the completion of operation unloads the component & place at require place. So it will take time to complete the cycle. In order to reduce the cycle time automation comes into play. By using robotics we can load & unload the components, which in turn reduces the cycle time & also require less labor work.

Paper Title:

The Better Optimization Technique for the Placement of DG In Order To Reduce Overall Cost of Power System

Abstract:    In a radial distribution system, the voltages at buses decrease and losses increase with increasing distance from the substation. DG can be utilized to overcome these problems. DG can deliver a portion of real and/or reactive power for reducing feeder current and thus improving both voltage profile and transmission efficiency. However, studies also shows incorrect placement of DG would lead to higher losses than the losses without DGs. This paper focuses on maximizing the net saving by minimizing the energy loss cost while considering installation and running cost of the Distributed generators. Both GA and PSO algorithms are used to find the optimal locations and sizes of DG. The obtained results are discussed and compared to each other. The proposed method is programmed and tested in a 33 bus distribution system using MATLAB software. For load flow analysis of the distribution network, forward backward sweep algorithm is used.

Velocity, Turbulent Intensity and Pressure Measurements in Turbulent Separated and Curved Flows

Abstract:   Velocity, turbulent intensity and pressure measurements over various flow surfaces were carried out by a constant-temperature hot wire anemometer and a micro-manometer. The experiments performed over a flat plate, curved walls with a radius of 2.54 m either in concave or convex curvatures and a ribbed wall has a sequence of 7 ribs at the free stream velocity of 20 m/s encompassing turbulent flows. The results showed that the concave curvature destabilized the flow and increased turbulent intensity, contrary to the convex curvature. The presence of the ribs also caused bigger turbulent intensities and the flow separations and reattachments were determined before the first rib, between the ribs, on the first rib and behind the last rib.

Speaker Recognition System Based On MFCC and DCT

Abstract:    This paper examines and presents an approach to the recognition of speech signal using frequency spectral information with Mel frequency. It is a dominant feature for speech recognition.  Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) are the coefficients that collectively represent the short-term power spectrum of a sound, based on a linear cosine transform of a log power spectrum on a non linear mel scale of frequency. The performance of MFCC is affected by the number of filters, the shape of filters, the way that filters are spaced, and the way that the power spectrum is warped. In this paper the optimum values of above parameters are chosen to get an efficiency of  99.5 % over a very small length of audio file.

A Study of the Effect of Magnetic Field on the Transport of Cargos through Nuclear Pore Complex

Abstract:    Nuclear pore complex is the largest type of macromolecular complex in the cell. In spite of their large size and complex structure NPC undergo complete breakdown and reformation at cell division. NPCs allow the transport of water soluble molecules across the nuclear envelope and can actively conduct 1000 translocations per complex per second. Small particles are able to pass through the nuclear pore complex by passive diffusion but larger particles are also able to pass through the large diameter of the pore but atmost negligible rates. Over the past few years there has been an increasing interest in the pore complex. The current challenge is to understand the effect of magnetic field and permeability on the transport of cargos from NPC using Mathematical model. For this purpose we have used bvp4c tool in Matlab. It is observed that magnetic field enhances the transport of cargos through NPC, which can be used in the cell based diseases.

Study the Effects of Encryption on Compressive Sensed Data

Abstract:    Today’s technological era is highly dominated by data transfer. Since confidential data is transmitted over risky media like internet, faithful data transfer is now accompanied with secure data transfer. Security is the need of the hour. Here, a new and relatively simple encryption algorithm is proposed which shuffles the elements. It randomizes the data. But this algorithm is applied on compressed sensed data which inherently has encryption properties. A study of the security of this additional encryption algorithm over the compressed sensed data is done and observed the objective quality of the recovered data in presence of noise.

Paper Title:

Performance Enhancement of Cloud Computing with Clustering

Abstract:    Cloud computing is an emerging infrastructure paradigm that allows efficient maintenance of cloud with efficient uses of servers. Virtualization is a key element in cloud environment as it provides distribution of computing resources. This distribution results in cost and energy reduction, thus making efficient utilization of physical resources. Thus resource sharing and use of virtualization allows improved performance for demanding scientific computing workloads. Number of data centers and physical servers are underutilized so they are used inefficiently. So performance evaluation and its enhancement in virtualized environment like public and private cloud are the challenging issues. Performance of cloud environment is dependent on CPU & memory utilization, Network and I/O disk operations. In order to improve the performance of the virtualization with cloud computing, one of the solutions is to allow highly available data in the cluster form. Thus replicas are available at each data centers and are highly available. In the proposed work, the I/O parameters are chosen for increasing the performance in this domain. This enhancement can be achieved through the clustering and caching technologies. The use of technology for data centers clustering is proposed in this paper. Thus performance and scalability can be improved by reducing the number of hits to the cloud database.

Paper Title:

Optimal Anycast Technique for Delay-Sensitive Energy-Constrained Asynchronous Sensor Networks

Abstract:    In many networks, it is less costly to transmit a packet to any node in a set of neighbors than to one specific neighbor. This observation was previously exploited by opportunistic routing protocols, by using single-path routing metrics to assign to each node a group of candidate relays for a particular destination. This paper addresses the least-cost anypath routing (LCAR) problem: how to assign a set of candidate relays at each node for a given destination such that the expected cost of forwarding a packet to the destination is minimized. The key is the following tradeoff: on one hand, increasing the number of candidate relays decreases the forwarding cost, but on the other, it increases the likelihood of “veering” away from the shortest-path route. Prior proposals based on single-path routing metrics or geographic coordinates do not explicitly consider this tradeoff, and a s aresult do not always make optimal choices. The LCAR algorithm and its framework are general and an be applied to a variety of networks and cost models. We show how LCAR can incorporate different aspects of underlying coordination protocols, for example a link-layer protocol that randomly selects which receiving node will forward a packet, or the possibility that multiple nodes mistakenly forward a packet. In either case, the LCAR algorithm finds the optimal choice of candidate relays that takes into account these properties of the link layer. Finally, we apply LCAR to low-power, low-rate wireless communication and introduce a new wireless link-layer technique to decrease energy transmission costs in conjunction with anypath routing. Simulations show significant reductions in transmission cost to opportunistic routing using single-path metrics. Furthermore LCAR routes are more robust and stable than those based on single-path distances, due to the integrative nature of the LCAR’s route cost metric.

Mixed Pixel Resolution by Evolutionary Algorithm: A Survey

Abstract:    Now a day’s Remote Sensing is a mature research area. Remote sensing is defined as a technique for acquiring the information about an object without making physical contact with that image via remote sensors. But the major problem of remotely sensed images is mixed pixel which always degrades the image quality.  Mixed pixels are usually the biggest reason for degrading the success in image classification and object recognition. Another major problem is the decomposition of mixed pixels precisely and effectively. Remote sensing data is widely used for the classification of types of features such as vegetation, water body etc but the problem occurs in tagging appropriate class to mixed pixels. In this paper we attempted to present an approach for resolving the mixed pixels by using optimization algorithm i.e. Biogeography based optimization. The main idea is to tag the mixed pixel to a particular class by finding the best suitable class for it using the BBO parameters i.e. Migration and Mutation.

Paper Title:

More Accurate and Fast Fault Identification on Power Networks Using Artificial Neural Networks

Abstract:    This paper is mainly on illustrating the inherent potential of artificial intelligence(AI) tools and techniques to accurately predict and detect faults at an early stage in power systems. An AI mainly monitors and predicts locus ‘n’ nature of faults at an early stage on particular sections of power systems which increase the reliability and quality of the power system. The detector for this early warning fault detection device only requires external measurements taken from the input and output nodes of the power system. The AI detection system is capable of rapidly predicting a malfunction within the system. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are being used at the core of the fault detection. Furthermore, comments on an evolutionary technique as the optimization strategy for ANNs are included in this work.

Paper Title:

Effect of Vermicompost, Vermiwash and Application Time on Soil Micronutrients Composition

Abstract:    Vermicomposting is increasingly becoming popular as an organic solid waste management strategy. The technology results in two bio-fertilizers, vermicompost and vermiwash. The bio-fertilizers were applied to the soil and their impact on the soil micronutrients time was quantified. A maximum of 1000g of vermicompost and vermiwash was applied over 40 days. 23 factorial designs were used to determine the effects of the bio-fertilizers and application time on the soil micronutrients. Increasing the vermicompost quantity resulted in increased soil zinc, manganese and iron content. Increased vermiwash quantities resulted in increased soil iron content but resulted in decreased copper content. Furthermore, increased application time of the two bio-fertilizers resulted in enhanced soil copper and iron content but decreased the zinc and manganese content. The loam-clay soil, organic material from the bio-fertilizers and microbial activity played a significant role in altering the soil micronutrients.

Paper Title:

A Study of Power Formers and Their Impact on Power System Reliability and Environment

Abstract:    Conventional high-voltage generators are designed with voltage levels rated to maximum of 30 kV. The power grids with voltages as high as 1,100 kV cannot be directly supplied from these generators, power step-up transformers are used  to transform the generated voltage to high transmission voltage level suitable for the interface with the transmission grid. These transformers  impose significant drawbacks on the power plant as a whole - reduction in efficiency, high maintenance costs, more space, less availability, and an increased environmental impact. During the last century, a number of attempts were made at developing a high-voltage generator, the Powerformer, that could be connected directly to the power grid, without step-up transformer. When XLPE-insulated cables were introduced in the 1960s there were some initial problems with their reliability, caused by poor control of the manufacturing processes. These problems have since been overcome, and today’s high-voltage XLPE-insulated cables have an impressive track record. Therefore, the development of the Powerformer is inherently linked to the reliability and the development of the XLPE insulated cables. The powerformer has opened a new technological chapter in the generation and transmission of electrical energy. The technological advantage offered by the powerformer was studied in good detail and their impact on reliability in particular and environment in general was highlighted.

Converting UML Description of Software Architecture to Stochastic Process Algebra and Performance Evaluation

Abstract:    Important qualitative parameters of the large software systems are determined by indicators of effectiveness of the software's,such as response time, operating power and error rate. Procedure modeling is an approach for evaluating the effectiveness andvalidationof the systems and, as well as it predicts the requirements of qualitative and quantitative performance and provides a comparison between all kinds of designs with respect to performance indicators.Present study suggested a method for converting the UML description designing software to Stochastic Process Algebra (SPA)model, which provides the application of using the UML in designing software with high performance; in other words it putting the performance in designing software and a high quality software is designed.In order tomodeling the parts of system we use state chart and for the interactions between the parts we use the Collaboration chart with the performance profile (using the performance profile is the distinction between the suggested approach and the former ones.). An algorithm is provided for automatic production of the SPA performance model from the XML(Extensible Markup Language) documents and state and collaboration charts with performance profiles(stereotype, label and limitation), using the ExportXMIsoftware, ArgoUML is provided, and then they gained SPA performance/operation model in thePEPAworkbenchtool is loaded for performance analysis, so as the designer can test thefulfill of performance goals of his design according to type of different performance parameters and changing in value and chooses the best option in designing.

A Novel Data Hiding Framework Using Switching Threshold Mechanism

Abstract:    In the current digital era, the rapid escalations in digital multimedia and network have paved ways for people around to acquire, utilize and share multimedia information. In this paper, we introduce a novel algorithm for hiding significant amount of data while preserving the image artifacts. The algorithm uses image details and identifies the good locations for hiding using a discriminative filter. This principle enhances the immunity of the proposed system against stego detection algorithms and preserves the first order statistics of the image.  In addition, the proposed algorithm could retrieve the embedded information without the prior information of the original cover. The simulation analysis would show that the proposed method offers higher immunity to stego detection algorithms and preserve the first order statistics of the image.

A Case Study on Curve Design for Improvements to Existing Master Plan Roads

Abstract:    The present case study deals with development of existing roads to master plan roads. The roads from NH-5 junction to kommadi village, NH-5 to Navodhaya School, are located in Visakhapatnam city in India. Particularly these areas are densely populated and occupied with housing units, schools and commercial buildings. As these roads could not meet the present & and future demand, new road proposals was put forward by Visakhapatnam development authority (VUDA) to widen the existing road to master plan road. The present condition of the road is in deteriorated state which is sacrificed and new pavement design is proposed according to IRC-37:2001 recommendations. The studies involves collection of details such as road width, gradient, deflection angle, length of curve and radius of curve and design them to the prescribed standards of IRC code. The curve parameters have been measured using theodolite by traversing along center line of the curve.

An Advanced Robot -Robin Heart (A Surgeon without Hand Tremor)

Abstract:    The paper presents the current state of works conducted by the Zabrze team under the Robin Heart surgical robot and the Robin Heart Uni System mechatronic surgical tools project as a example of introducing technology and materials advances for progress in surgical robots. The project called “Polish Cardiosurgical Robot” has been developed by Foundation for Cardiac Surgery Development since year 2000. Within the project the telemanipulator to perform the endoscopic cardiosurgical operations has been designed, manufactured and examined. In the following paper the development of construction of arms for Robin Heart versions of the robot as well as the fixing system has been presented. In the preliminary phase of the project the requirements for mechanical construction were analyzed. Additional requirements enhancing functionality of the construction were also defined. A system to verify the forward kinematic and the trajectories for the Robin Heart master device was implemented. The system consists of hardware based on incremental encoders connected to a data acquisition card and software programmed in Matlab and LabView to create an interface between the system and the user. The system verifies the position of the tool tip when different values for the joints are configured. The visualization of trajectories is also possible after saving a routine of movements made by the user. Analyses of the planned development of the construction and ways of its possible applications were performed. The special intention is to show the review of the current and futuristic medical robots needs in the area of material science.

Circuit Edit Technology for Submicron Structures in Semiconductor Devices

Abstract:    Aluminum and copper metal structures with sub micron dimension are widely used in semiconductor devices. Precise cutting of these metal lines is one of the fundamental requirements in VLSI Circuit Edit technology. Cutting of these sub micron metal lines should ensure good electrical isolation while maintaining nil / minimal damage to closely spaced adjacent metal structures. In this experimental work, both focused ion beam (FIB) technology and focused Laser beam technology have been explored. Relative merits and demerits of these technologies have been discussed. Laser beam assisted technology is found to be viable for cutting metal lines if spacing between metal lines is greater than two microns. Focused ion beam assisted technology is found to be quite effective in cutting metal structures when spacing between metal lines is less than a micron.

Simulation of a Secure Efficient Dynamic Routing In Wireless Sensor Network

Abstract:    Wireless Sensor networks have features like low cost, flexibility, fault tolerance, high sensing fidelity, creating many new and exciting application areas for remote sensing. So, wireless sensor network has emerged as a promising tool for monitoring the physical world with wireless sensor that can sense, process and communicate. There are many issues of wireless sensor network which need to be addressed .So took up one of the idea to use OSPF for secure efficient dynamic routing in wireless sensor network. The protocols that are being used till date are not efficient enough in matter of the time taken for the transferring the message from one node to another. So this project provides secure efficient dynamic routing in wireless sensor network. The protocols that are being used just provide a data packet transfer without any proper time. With the implementation of open shortest path first protocol we can get a better routing path for with least cost path. Thus the implementation of this can give a better view in the data packet transferring.The Simulation of Secure Efficient Dynamic Routing in Wireless sensor network has been implemented using dijkstra’s algorithm for finding shortest path between the nodes. For providing security to the messages DES algorithm is used. The messages are encrypted and decrypted using this algorithm in order to provide security. User can be able to create number of nodes in the network. User can be able to send the packets using shortest path so that it reaches fast. User can also able to view the Routing Table at each node. User can also be able to view different nodes placed with their Node location and Node id. So from the   Implementation it can be conclude that the proposed technique is very cost effective, secure and simpler to configure. From the performance Analysis it is clear that OSPF Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks is Very cost effective and more number of packets can be sent.

Paper Title:

A Novel Approach for Data Encryption Standard Algorithm

Abstract:    Now a day’s providing Security for data is complicated task we have so many security methods that are implemented and deployed but out of them few are using and serving the needs of society. And we can’t say that any algorithm is perfect and avoids threats. The main goal of any design of any encryption algorithm must be security against unauthorized attacks. Within the last decade, data in both the private and public sectors are increased which requires Availability, Authentication, Confidentiality, Integrity. In this paper we are considering The DES algorithm that defines the mathematical steps that transform original text (plain text) into a cipher text (secret code) and also transform the cipher text back to the original text. Here introduces a new method to enhance the performance of the Data Encryption Standard (DES) algorithm. This is done by replacing the 8/32 S-Box instead of 6/4 S-Box. The output of each S-Box undergoes AND and XOR operation before going to the permutation P. In this paper we also proposed a new operation Addition modulo instead predefined XOR operation applied during the 16 round of the standard algorithm.

3D Volume Rendering Algorithm

Abstract:    This paper presents an analysis of the algorithms used for generating 3D structures from 2D CT-Scan Datasets. This is achieved by developing an implementation of Marching Cubes, a surface construction algorithm that’s currently the standard used for 3D surface construction in the medical visualization industry. Two techniques have been chosen to produce the 3D models. The first technique is known as Volume Rendering and the second technique is known as the Marching Cubes Algorithm. Both techniques use voxels (3D square pixels) to determine the 3D area to be constructed.  The Marching Cubes (MC) algorithm by Lorensen and Cline is most popular algorithm for extraction of isosurface out of volume data. Several drawbacks of MC algorithm are solved by using new improved version of MC algorithm.

A Study of Channel Assignment Strategies used for Uncoordinated WLANs

Abstract:    Due to tremendous increase in use of WIFI, the efficient use of available frequency spectrum has been a challenging issue. Such WIFI which are managed by non-network specialists are called Uncoordinated WLANS. The performance of Uncoordinated WLANs can be greatly improved by efficient channel assignment. In this paper, we describe the various channel assignment schemes used in Uncoordinated WLANs. After describing each scheme we also provide a qualitative comparison of the schemes based on complexity, scalability and execution behaviors. The survey is concluded with various research issues open for further study.

Energy Aware Resource Allocation in Cloud Datacenter

Abstract:    The greatest environmental challenge today is global warming, which is caused by carbon emissions. Energy crisis brings green computing, and green computing needs algorithms and mechanisms to be redesigned for energy efficiency. Green IT refers to the study and practice of using computing resources in an efficient, effective and economic way. Currently, a large number of cloud computing systems waste a tremendous amount of energy and emit a considerable amount of carbon dioxide. Thus, it is necessary to significantly reduce pollution and substantially lower energy usage. The proposed energy aware resource allocation provision data center resources to client applications in a way that improves energy efficiency of the data center, while delivering the negotiated Quality of Service (QoS). In particular, in this paper we conduct a survey of research in energy-efficient computing and propose: architectural principles for energy-efficient management of Clouds; energy-efficient resource allocation policies and scheduling algorithms considering QoS expectations and power usage characteristics of the devices. It is validated by conducting a performance evaluation study using CloudSim toolkit. Green Cloud Computing aims at a processing infrastructure that combines flexibility, quality of services, and reduced energy utilization. In order to achieve this objective, the management solution must regulate the internal settings to address the pressing issue of data center over-provisioning related to the need to match the peak demand. In this context, propose an integrated solution for resource management based on VMs placement and VMs allocation policies. This work introduces the system management model, analyzes the system’s behavior, describes the operation principles, and presents a use case scenario. To simulate the approach of organization, theory and implementation of migration policies and reallocation changes were made as improvements in the code of CloudSim framework.

Reliable Data Collection Using Mobile Data Collector in Wireless Sensor Network

Abstract:   in cluster based wireless sensor network common sensor nodes within the cluster sense the event periodically or continuous and transmit the data packets to the respective cluster head. Cluster heads will process the packets and transmit to the sink. As the cluster head act as intermediate node between common sensor nodes and sink so these nodes consumes more energy as compare to other nodes in network. So in this case these nodes are having more chances to dead early and due to that bottleneck problem occur in the network and this leads to affect the reliability of the network. With the help of proposed mobile data collector node (MDCN) model we can reduce the energy consumption of the nodes which are close to sink and also improve the reliability of the network

An Approach for Classification of Preprocessed Textures Based On Boundary Moments

Abstract:    Texture classification is one of the problems which have been paid much attention on by image processing scientists. Consequently, many different methods have been proposed to solve this problem. In most of these methods the researchers attempted to describe and discriminate textures based on linear and non-linear patterns. The present paper describes a novel and effective method of shape classification by combining innovative preprocessing techniques, morphological boundary method and Hu moments. To offer better classification rate, first innovative preprocessing methods are applied on various texture images. Preprocessing mechanisms describe various methods of converting a grey level image into binary image with minimal consideration of the noise model. Then shape features are evaluated using HM by suitable numerical characterization derived from moment invariant measures on the  proposed Morphological Boundary(MB) method for a precise classification. This proposed MB derives a new shape descriptor to address the image classification problem by combining boundary extraction and Hu moment(HM) invariants information. A good comparison is made between these methods by combining preprocessing techniques, boundary extraction and Hu moments. This texture classification study using MB and HM has given a good performance. The experimental results clearly show the efficacy of the present method.

Performance Analysis of Tikhonov Distributed Phase Error over Wireless Fading Channels

Abstract:    There is  need to formulate an accurate and thoroughly reproducible error model  for wireless mobile  channels in  order to  enhance   the  quality of  communication  by using better  modulation and coding schemes. However the various physical properties of propagation mode, distortion due to error in physical wireless medium and  the synchronization mismatch  between  transmitter  and   receiver,  leads  to  difficulty  in  modelling of  the  error performance of wireless channels. Phase shift keying (PSK) is one of the best modulation schemes  for  wireless  applications mainly   due  to  its  bandwidth  efficiency  and  constant  envelope. Inspite of these advantages, PSK systems  are prone to  phase synchronization error which becomes even more vital issue in wireless systems as  calculating correct phase over a random propagation medium is almost impossible. As a result, in  addition with AWGN and fading, the synchronization mismatch of the phase between the transmitter and receiver evaluates the error performance of a wireless system. This paper examines the problem of wrong  phase evaluation for  the  BPSK  as  well  as  for  the  case  of  general MPSK signals  over  Rayleigh, Nakagami-n  (Rician),  Nakagami-m  and  Nakagami-q  (Hoyt)  fading  channels. The  phase distortions are assumed to be random, unbiased, i.e. having zero-mean and may be represented by  a  Tikhonov distribution. The major contributions of related works were surveyed and the method that requires minimum mathematical operations (and thus proves to be less complex, more stable and accurate than others) is also explained. Apart from this, simple alternative approaches for obtaining analytical bit error rate (BER) for BPSK and symbol error rate (SER) through moment generating function (MGF) for Tikhonov distributed phase error have been proposed. The MGF methodology has wider applicability, is able  to obtain reproducible results, and shows significant improvement  in  accuracy regarding theoretical  BER  calculation  as  seen  from  the  graphical comparisons. Extensive Monte Carlo simulations that builds models of possible results by substituting a range of values were also performed to validate the theoretical results presented in the research paper

Comparative Study of Radio Channel Propagation and Modeling for 4G Wireless Systems

Abstract:    This paper concerns about the radio propagation models used for the upcoming 4th Generation (4G) of cellular networks. A comprehensive review of the propagation prediction models for 4G wireless communication systems is presented and computation of path loss due to specific terrain and clutter environment has been carried using MATLAB based simulations for various prediction techniques such as COST-231 Hata model, COST-231 Walfish-Ikegami method, SUI model and ITU-R(1411.1) model for broadband and mobile services. The results showed that COST-231Hata’s method gave better agreement in terms of path loss values in urban, suburban and rural areas as compared to COST-231 Walfisch–Ikegami model.  COST-231 Hata model shows the lowest path loss in all the terrains whereas ITU-R(NLOS) model has highest path loss values. The prediction errors of the SUI and ITU-R NLOS models are considerably higher than those of the COST-231Hata and COST-231 Walfisch– Ikegami models.

Real Time Data Warehousing using Dynamic SQL

Abstract:    Data warehouse synchronization is a complex process in heterogeneous database environment. Maintaining the uniformity of data in real-time is a fundamental problem of data synchronization. In this paper we present a methodology to synchronize data warehouse in heterogeneous database environment in almost real-time using dynamic SQL approach. We capture all DML SQL query from source database and pass this to the processing module. Structure and DBMS systems at the source and target could be different; hence it is not possible to execute the source SQL directly into the target. A processing module runs continuously in the back end to read changes and prepare the dynamic SQL by referring the Reference Data. Reference Data acts as heart of the processing module that prepares the dynamic SQL. It specifies the mapping between source and target with all details. Another process executes the SQL query in the target system. If any error is encountered while executing the query in the target, it will be moved to the error processing module where it will be retried after some delay. Our preliminary experimental results evidence the effectiveness of the proposed method.

We capture all DML SQL query from source database and pass this to the processing module.

Design and Implementation A Digital Sine-Cosine Generator Based FPGA

Abstract:    This article proposes a new way to generate a sine and cosine waves based FPGA. These signals can be used to generate a PWM signals that can be used in SDR and DSP. It can be used in control system like control DC and AC motors. The problem is how can generate a sine and cosine waves that are composed of the positive and negative part. Any hardware accepts the values 0, 1 and can’t accept the   negative values, we used the mode two’s components of numbers to represent the positive and negative samples and converted these results to decimal numbers, and we shifted a one half wave 8 bit to obtain the wave without distortion. We used MATLAB to generate the data of sine and cosine wave. We saved the data in ROM memory using VHDL language and we applied the results onto board spartan-3A FPGA.

Treatment of Industrial Analgesic Wastewater by Submerged Membrane Bioreactor

Abstract:   Extensive laboratory investigations were carried out using a commercially available submerged membrane (ZENON make; pore size – 0.04 µm and made of a polymeric material) for studying the treatment efficiency of an industrial pharmaceutical wastewater (obtained from a company manufacturing ‘analgesic’ drug). The bioaugmentation process adopted in the MBR is very effective for the treatment of the pharmaceutical effluent, as evident from the COD removal (%) obtained (ie., 82.5% @ 24 h HRT and 71.47% @ 8 h HRT, at the maximum OLR.

Feasibility Study of Using Recycled Coarse Aggregate as a Radiation Shielding Material

Abstract:    Radiation shielding is considered as a highly sensitive issue in the department of medical physics. Proper utilization of material in radiation shielding can be effective in terms of economy, durability and safety measure. Concrete is nowadays extensively used as a material for radiation shielding. The coarse aggregate of concrete plays an important role in concrete density where the density is related to the radiation attenuation. In this research, the feasible study has conducted of using the recycled coarse aggregate in radiation shielding. The focus of this paper is to introduce a possible better alternative of fresh aggregate to make the concrete shielding. Two types of recycled aggregates were taken; recycled stone aggregate (RCA) and recycled brick aggregate (RBA). Aggregate material properties were found out at the beginning of the research. As the Brachytherapy unit used in the research, the Cobalt-60 (Co-60) was selected as a source of photon energy. Then the HVL and TVL were measured based on the attenuation of radiation. The study shows that the use of recycled concrete in the radiation shielding is optimistic.

Novel Video Denoising Using 3-D Transformation Techniques

Abstract:   Digital videos are often corrupted by a noise during the acquisition process, storage and transmission. It made the video in ugly appearance and also affect on another digital video processes like compression, feature extraction and pattern recognition so video denoising is highly desirable process in order to improve the video quality. There are many transformation for denoising process, one of them are Fast Discrete Wavelet Transform(FDWT) and framelet transform (Double-Density Wavelet Transform) which is a perfect in denoising process by avoiding the problems in the other transformations. In this paper we propose a method named Translation Invariant with Wiener filter (TIW) this method is proposed to solve the shift variance problem  and use this method to denoise a noisy video with Gaussian white noise type.. It is applied with  Two Dimensional Fast Discrete Wavelet Transform(2-D FDWT), Three Dimensional Fast Discrete Wavelet Transform(3-D FDWT), Two Dimensional Double Density Wavelet Transform(2-D DDWT) and Three Dimensional Double Density Wavelet Transform(3-D DDWT). The results show that our (TIW) gives a better denoising results comparative with the original methods.

Network Interface Design and Implementation for NoC on FPGA with advanced Hardware and Networking Functionalities

Abstract:   As we are living in a billion transistor era, the number of components on a given chip increases drastically, System on Chip (SoC) architectures become even more powerful. Key to this architecture is the ability to integrate multiple heterogeneous components into a single architecture, which requires modularity and abstraction. An integral part of this architectural design is the methods by which the various components communicate with one another. Network on Chip (NoC) architectures attempt to address these concerns by providing various component level architectures with specific interconnection network topologies and routing techniques. Networks-On-Chip (NoCs) have been proposed as a promising replacement to eliminate many of the overheads of buses and MPSoCs connected by means of general-purpose communication architectures. This paper presents the design and implementation of FPGA based Network on chip (NoC) which is scalable packet switched architecture with advanced Networking functionalities such as store & forward transmission, error management, power management and security. All these features are built on basic NI core, which includes data packetization/depacketisation, frequency conversion, data size conversion and conversion of protocols with limited circuit complexity and cost
