Paper Title:

Hindi Speaking Person Identification Using Zero Crossing Rate

Abstract:    Information from speech recognition can be used in various ways in state of the art speaker recognition systems. This includes the obvious use of recognized words to enable the use of text dependent speaker modeling techniques. In this paper text dependent speaker identification method is used. This system contains training phase, the testing phase and recognition phase. In the training phase, the feature word is extracted. During the testing phase, feature matching takes place. The feature that extracted is stored in the data base. During the recognition phase, the features are extracted by same techniques and are compared with the template in the database. Differences of physiological properties of the glottis and vocal tracts are partly due to age, gender and/or person differences. Since these differences are related in the speech signal, acoustic measures related to those properties can be helpful for speaker identification. Acoustic measure of voice sources were extracted from 3 utterances spoken by 10 peoples including 5 male and 5 female talkers (aged 19 to 25 years old). In this paper, the eature of the extraction takes place by Zero Crossing Rate (ZCR).

Paper Title:

A Unified Approach of ECG Signal Analysis

Abstract:  The bio-potentials generated by the muscles of the heart result in an electrical signal called electrocardiogram (ECG). It is one of the most important physiological parameter, which is being extensively used for knowing the state of the cardiac patients. Feature extraction of ECG is most essential task in the manual and automated ECG analysis for use in instruments like ECG monitors, Holter tape recorders and scanners, ambulatory ECG recorders and analysers. Recently, artificial intelligent tools such as neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy systems, and expert systems have frequently been reported for detection and diagnostic tasks. This paper, therefore, is an attempt to review the work done by the different researchers in the area of ECG signal processing, analysis and interpretation during last five decades.

Paper Title:

A Comparative Analysis of Watershed and Color based segmentation for Fruit Grading

Abstract:    In this paper, we presented two segmentation methods. Multi-scale edge detection with watershed segmentation and color based segmentation using K-means. Color based segmentation is based on fruit color and its difference. Mostly the damage part of the fruit will be of different color and that will be segmented by our algorithm very correctly. Second the watershed segmentation also segments the fruit based on color, shape and size of the damage. We compared the results of both segmentation results and the watershed segmentation outperforms the color based segmentation in all aspects.MATLAB image processing toolbox is used for the computation and Comparison results are shown with the segmented images.

An Intelligent Voice Enabled Distance to Empty and Navigation System

Abstract:   Recent years have witnessed a fast growth in automobile sector, leading to increased urge for an intelligent man machine interaction system for navigation. This paper describes the development and implementation of an intelligent speech agent based navigation system and distance to empty (DTE) calculation for autonomous land vehicle applications. This system, initially determines the current location using Global Positioning System (GPS). The GPS outputs NMEA (National Marine Electronics Association) sentence that contains information about current location including longitude and latitude. The input to the system i.e. the desired destination is through voice command and outputs the following-(i) the road distance and the amount of fuel required, through speech, (ii)the altitude difference between the current location and the destination, which is further used to calculate the mileage variation with altitude  and (iii) displays the route from the current location to the destination on a map along with the prediction whether the user will be able to reach the desired destination with fuel left in the automobile, how much distance it can travel with the remaining fuel and how much additional fuel is required to be filled up to reach the destination.

Autocovariance Ionospheric Prediction Model for GAGAN Applications

Abstract:    Airports Authority of India (AAI) and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) are being jointly developing a satellite based augmentation system which is popularly known as GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation System (GAGAN) to cater civil aviation requirements in India. Forecasting of the ionospheric behaviour in advance can be used to set up early warnings of ionospheric threats for GAGAN system. In this paper, an ionospheric forecasting model is implemented on the basis of autocovariance method. The dual frequency GPS receiver’s data of Hyderabad (Geographic 17.410N,78.550 E) station located at the  National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI),Government of India  is considered for the analysis. Time series of vertical Total Electron Content (TEC) for all visible satellites are calculated for quiet days and disturbed days. In this method, the first prediction point outside the data time interval in the future and in the past is computed and added at the beginning or at the end of data, respectively. Using this first prediction point, the next prediction point is computed consequently. Forecasting of ionospheric delay variations would be immensely useful for the protection of valuable communication satellites from space weather conditions.

Paper Title:

Discrimination between Speech and Music Signal

Abstract:    Over the last few years major efforts have been made to develop methods for extracting information from audio-visual media, in order that they may be stored and retrieved in databases automatically. In this work we deal with the characterization of an audio signal, which is a part of a larger audio-visual system. Our goal was first to develop a system for segmentation of the audio signal, and then classify into one of two main categories: speech or music. The basic characteristics are computed in 2sec intervals. The result shows that the estimation of short time energy reflects more effectively the difference in human voice and musical instrument than zero crossing rate and spectrum flux.

Detection of Lung Nodule Using Multiscale Wavelets and Support Vector Machine

Abstract:    Lung cancer is the most common and leading cause of death in both men and women. Lung nodule, an abnormality which leads to lung cancer is detected by various medical imaging techniques like X-ray, Computerized Tomography (CT), etc. Detection of lung nodules is a challenging task, since the nodules are commonly attached to the blood vessels. Many studies have shown that early diagnosis is the most efficient way to cure this disease. This paper aims to develop an efficient lung nodule detection scheme by performing nodule segmentation through multiscale wavelet based edge detection and morphological operations; classification by using a machine learning technique called Support Vector Machine (SVM). This methodology uses three different types of kernels like linear, Radial Basis Function (RBF) and polynomial, among which the RBF kernel gives better class performance with a sensitivity of 92.86% and error rate of 0.0714.

Study Of Transmission Characteristics Of 2x2 Mimo System for OFDM Multiplexing and Bpsk Modulation With ZF Equalizer And MMSE Receivers

Abstract:    A detailed analysis of 2×2 MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) combined with OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) transmission system and BPSK modulation has been carried out. The BER performance of the system has been determined for Additive white Gaussian Noise (AWGN) presuming Flat fading Rayleigh channel. On the receiver side linear equalization techniques such as Zero Force Equalizer (ZF) and Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) detectors were employed for studying the BER performance. The simulation results show that for BER of  ~10-4, the SNR required are ~34 dB for ZF equalizer and ~31dB for MMSE equalizer. The simulation results indicate that the MMSE equalizer shows better performance ~3 dB over the ZF equalizer.  Further comparison of the 2X2 MIMO performance of OFDM with STBC multiplexing   indicates comparable BER performances. The simulation results are presented and discussed in the paper. Key Words:  Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), Space Time Block Coding (STBC), Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK), Bit Error Rate (BER), Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), Zero Force Equalizer (ZFE)  and Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE).

A Survey on Moving Object Detection and Tracking in Video Surveillance System

Abstract:    This paper presents a survey of various techniques related to video surveillance system improving the security. The goal of this paper is to review of various moving object detection and object tracking methods. This paper focuses on detection of moving objects in video surveillance system then tracking the detected objects in the scene. Moving Object detection is first low level important task for any video surveillance application. Detection of moving object is a challenging task. Tracking is required in higher level applications that require the location and shape of object in every frame. In this survey, I described Background subtraction with alpha, statistical method, Eigen background Subtraction and Temporal frame differencing to detect moving object. I also described tracking method based on point tracking, kernel tracking and silhouette tracking.

Paper Title:

Metamorphic Malware Detection Using Statistical Analysis

Abstract:    Typically, computer viruses and other malware are detected by searching for a string of bits found in the virus or malware. Such a string can be viewed as a “fingerprint” of the virus identified as the signature of the virus. The technique of detecting viruses using signatures is known as signature based detection. Today, virus writers often camouflage their viruses by using code obfuscation techniques in an effort to defeat signature-based detection schemes. So-called metamorphic viruses transform their code as they propagate, thus evading detection by static signature-based virus scanners, while keeping their functionality but differing in internal structure. Many dynamic analysis based detection have been proposed to detect metamorphic viruses but dynamic analysis technique have limitations like difficult to learn normal behavior, high run time overhead and high false positive rate compare to static detection technique. A similarity measure method has been successfully applied in the field of document classification problem. We want to apply similarity measures methods on static feature, API calls of executable to classify it as malware or benign. In this paper we present limitations of signature based detection for detecting metamorphic viruses. We focus on statically analyzing an executable to extract API calls and count the frequency this API calls to generate the feature set. These feature set is used to classify unknown executable as malware or benign by applying various similarity function.

Paper Title:

Search Window Based Exemplar Approach for Image Inpainting

Abstract:   Image inpainting is a technique to fill missing region or reconstruct damage area from an image. It removes an undesirable object from an image in visually plausible way. For filling the part of image, it uses information from the neighboring area. In this dissertation work, we present an Exemplar based method for filling in the missing information in an image, which takes structure synthesis and texture synthesis together. Image inpainting is done in such a manner, that it fills the damaged region or holes in an image, with surrounding color and texture. The algorithm is based on patch based filling procedure. First find target region using mask image and than find boundary of target region. For all the boundary points it defined patch and find the priority of these patches. It starts filling the target region from the highest priority patch by finding the best match patch from the search window. This procedure is repeated until entire target region is inpainted. We have perform experiment on many images and found that our algorithm successfully inpaint the target region.

Removal of Occlusion for Abstraction of Class-Room Videos

Abstract:   In this paper, we examine the case of occlusion removal from a class-room video in a remote class application. Written text on writing-board in sequence of video frames is occluded by a human subject. Our goal is to remove the occlusion, in our case it is human subject. As the human subject moves across the writing-board, he or she will occlude different parts or regions of the writing-board. The region of occlusion can be replaced by the contents of the frame in which the same region not occluded by the human subject. Thus, it requires to segment each of the frames into two types of region namely occluded and unoccluded. The frames are segmented based on a supervised statistical analysis. For decreasing the computation efficiency of proposed segmentation method, a multi-resolution analysis based on haar wavelet is implemented. In order to fill gaps in the output of the segmentation method, certain morphological operation are implemented which gives the final segmented regions in each frame. Finally, the human occlusion is removed based on the segmentation results by appropriate replacement of the content from the other frames.

M- Muster Using GPS

Abstract:    This paper deals how to prevent the duplication or fraudulent of works in this society. This type of works may happen either in government organizations or in private organizations. This paper considers fraudulent of works happened in the government organizations. To prevent this type of works in the government organization, let’s introduce mobile muster technology using Global Positioning System (GPS). Now consider a contract work which was given by the government organizations to the contractor.  The main aim of this technology is to provide some special software based mobile to the contractor or who involved in supervising the work.  The duty of his /her is to show the work progress, labourer attendance, distributing daily wages to the daily laborers regularly.  In order to avoid fraud in the work, first the concerned man who involved in this work should login into the application form from the field where the work is going on. Later capture the photographs of the finished work and the remaining work to do and also the labourer involved on that day. This total information is automatically sent to the web server by the mobile. The person location who sends all this data can identify by using the mobile IMEI number using GPS and that information is stored in the database. Every user can verify this information as up to the date by using web application. By this process we can avoid fraud in the work to some extent.

Performance Evaluation of CSMA/TDMA Cognitive Radio Using Genetic Algorithm

Abstract:    Channel Assignment is a very important issue in the field of Wireless Networks. In this paper, we have evaluated the performance of a Multiple Channel TDMA/CSMA spectrum sharing scenario. We have combined the TDMA and the non-persistent CSMA system with multiple channels and analyzed the throughput and the throughput performance of the individual systems as a function of the actual offered traffic level. In this paper we have analyzed TDMA and CSMA in Cognitive Radio, where the primary users have higher priority than secondary users and secondary users need to monitor the channel in order to avoid the interference to the primary users.  TDMA users are considered as primary users who can access the channel at any time and CSMA users are considered as secondary users who can share the channel when it is free.

A Model to Secure Mobile Devices Using Keystroke Dynamics through Soft Computing Techniques

Abstract:    In this mobile world, there are more mobile phones in than computers. Everyday more of these phones becomes smart phones. Nowadays, mobile devices functions like a mini computer, it becomes more attractive target for thieves. A reliable security application is needed to safeguard data and protect against theft. As mobile devices become more pervasive in our lives, there is a greater need to protect the data on such devices. The current PIN (Personal Identification Number) authentication in mobile device is weak and there is a demand of strong authentication. Biometrics adds an additional authentication and it provides most significant improvement in mobile security. In this research work, we proposed a hybrid authentication mechanism (keystroke, finger print and palm print) where biometric data’s are captured and user template can be generated. The template is used to check whether the user is authenticated person or an imposter.

Fuzzy Based Median Filtering for Removal of Salt-and-Pepper Noise

Abstract:   This paper presents a filter for restoration of images that are highly corrupted by salt and pepper noise. By incorporating fuzzy logic after detecting and correcting the noisy pixel, the proposed filter is able to suppress noise and preserve details across a wide range of salt and pepper noise corruption, ranging from 1% to 60%. The proposed filter is tested on different images and is found to produce better results than the Traditional Median Filter.

Paper Title:

Spectrum Efficiency for Spatially Correlated MIMO OSFBC-OFDM Systems over Various Adaptation Policies

Abstract:   In this paper, closed-form expressions for capacities per unit bandwidth for spatially correlated multiuser MIMO-OFDM systems employing Orthogonal Space-Frequency Block Coding (OSFBC) over multipath frequency-selective fading channels are derived for optimal power and rate adaptation, optimal rate adaptation with constant transmit power, channel inversion with fixed rate, and truncated channel inversion adaptation polices. A Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) based user selection scheme is considered. Closed-form expressions are derived for spatially correlated OSFBC-OFDM system. Optimal power adaptation policy provides the highest capacity over the other adaptation policies. Capacity gains are more prominent for optimal rate adaptation with constant transmit power policy as compared to other adaptation policies.

   Orthogonal space-frequency block coding; optimal power adaptation; optimal rate adaptation with constant transmit power; channel inversion with fixed rate; truncated channel inversion; outage probability.

Paper Title:

A Review of Heart Rate Variability and It’s Association with Diseases

Abstract:    Heart Rate variability (HRV) is a powerful noninvasive tool which can be used to detect the status of cardio-autonomic function. Its analysis gives information about the cardiac health status .HRV measures specifically nonlinear measures can be sued as predictors of mortality, hence can be used to prevent the mortality, for both cardiac and no cardiac diseased subjects. Because of its significance in this paper a review has been presented on HRV analysis methods and HRV association with various diseases.

Compendium Model of AkT for Cell Survival/Death and its Equivalent Bio-Circuit

Abstract:   This paper demonstrates the compendium model of AkT (protein kinase B) for cell survival/ death. AkT is a central signaling molecule in the Tumor Necrosis factor-α (TNF), Epidermal Necrosis Factor (EGF) and Insulin pathway. Model demonstrates how AkT promotes cell survival by inactivating several targets, including forkhead transcription factors, p53, GSK-3B and caspase-9 and activating Bad, NF-κB and mTOR. On the basis of  model for AkT we have made the truth tables, Boolean equations and then implement the equations using logic circuits and Bio-circuits showing cell survival and death. Heat map of 13 time points at 0, 5, 15, 30, 60, and 90 min and 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, and 24 hr for ten cytokine treatments of TNF, EGF and Insulin has been taken for AkT signal. We have plotted their corresponding graph of time-dependent signals. The results obtain will give information on how the input signals inducing cell survival/ death should be modulated to achieve desire outputs.

Paper Title:

Optical Fiber Communication System Performance Using MZI Switching

Abstract:    First a simple all-optical logic device, called Mach Zhender Inferometer is composed by using a Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA) and an optical coupler. This device is used for generating the logical functions (AND, XOR) and a multiplexer and an Encoder is obtained using this device in Optical Tree Architecture. The simulation of Encoder and Multiplexer is done at a rate of 10 Gbit/s and both are simulated for different input logical combinations. Simulations indicate that the device is suitable to operate at much higher bit rate and also for different logical entities. Many lower-speed data streams can be multiplexed into one high-speed stream by means of Optical time division multiplexing (OTDM), such that each input channel transmits its data in an assigned time slot. The assignment is performed by a fast multiplexer switch (mux).The routing  of different data streams at the end  of the TDM link  is performed  by a demultiplexer switch (demux) and  this demultiplexer is employed  using  MZI switch as it consists a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and a optical coupler. In this chapter four channel OTDM is simulated at 40 Gbit/s and further it is investigated the impact of the signal power, pulse width and control signal power on BER.

2.4 GHz Propagation Prediction Models for Indoor Wireless Communications Within Building

Abstract:    Different propagation models are presented  for multi-storied Quantitative models aural area, that predicts effect of wall partitions, number of floors and building layout at 2.4 GHz using IEEE802.11b wireless network. Propagation models have been developed for these two buildings based on number of floors between transmitter and receiver. These models are indoor location detection system designer which relate signal strength log of distance. The measurement shows that the standard deviation between measured and predicted path loss is 12.4124 dB for all locations in one building and as small as 8.0948 dB on same floor. And in other building it is 10.2854 dB and minimum 8.5454 dB for same floor measurements. Floor attenuation factor for two buildings are 18.0304 dB and 28.5687 dB when transmitter and receivers have one floor in-between.   The concrete wall attenuation factor was found to be 4.86 dB and hard board partition attenuation factor was 2.45 dB.  Also contour plots for equal signal strength for measured data are presented.  The results are quite logical as per building structure/layout.

Fault Detection and Diagnosis in HVAC System Based on Soft Computing Approach

Abstract:   The fault detection and diagnosis (FDD) play an important role in the monitoring, repairing and maintaining of technical systems. In this paper, we presented a new method based on soft computing approach for FDD in a special type of HVAC system namely unitary system. In the proposed method, the feature vectors are extracted by applying wavelet transform to output signals of model. Then, a Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy classifier detects and diagnoses the faults by use of extracted feature vectors, if the faults exist. The T-S fuzzy classifier needs to be trained. With inspiration from training formulation of support vector machine (SVM), the training process has been stated as an optimization problem. For solving the mentioned optimization problem, a reliable evolutionary algorithm namely differential evolution (DE) is used. One of the important types of faults in the unitary HVAC system is refrigerant leakage. FDD of refrigerant leakage is highlighted in the presented paper. The simulation has been done in MATLAB-Simulink and the efficacy of the proposed method is demonstrated based on the experimental results.

Parametric Investigation of the Air Curtain for Open Refrigerated Display Cabinets

Abstract:  Air curtains are widely used in open refrigerated display cabinets (ORDC) as well as doorways of Conditioned Space and retail premises. The main purpose of the air curtain is to control the heat and moisture transfer between the conditioned space and the surrounding ambient also to reduce the air exchange between the two environments. This article presents comprehensive results which can be used to optimise and predict the performance of air curtains in cabinets. The parameter investigation in this article has investigated how the density, velocity and temperature of the air inside and outside the curtain vary as a function of height for various ambient climatic conditions. These results are obtained from the models, developed to enable quick calculations and parametric analyses for the designing and sizing purposes of refrigeration equipments.

Evaluation of Routing Protocols for Mobile Ad hoc Networks

Abstract:    Mobile Ad hoc network is a self-configuring infrastructure less network of mobile devices connected by wireless links. Each device in a MANET is free to move independently in any direction and links will be changed frequently with other devices. Each host acts like a router and forward to its neighbors. To forward packets between routers we have various MANET routing protocol. An Ad hoc routing protocol is a convention that controls how nodes decide which way to route packet between computing devices in a mobile ad hoc network.In this paper our main focus is to analyze, simulate and evaluate the performance of Routing Protocols (DSR, AODV and TORA).

FPGA Based SOC for Railway Level crossing Management System

Abstract:    It is to develop the FPGA based, System on Chip (SOC) to implement the safety system in Railways for level crossing. For the communication RF module[1] with the coverage of large distance, that is Outdoor line-of-sight: up to 15 miles (24 km) with high gain antenna is used. RF Transceiver has many salient features[2], such as, Advanced Networking & Security, True peer-to-peer (no "master" required) communications, Point-to-point & point-to-multipoint topologies supported, Continuous RF data stream up to 9600 bps, No configuration required for out-of-the-box  and Support for multiple data formats (parity, start and stop bits, etc.). An article authored by Mr. R.K. Verma, Chief Engineer, Indian Railways exposes the Corporate Safety Plan [3] of reduction of accidents on Indian Railway (IR) by the year 2012-13. In which, he stated that Collisions of the Trains can be completely eliminated. Derailments can be reduced by 60% and fire accidents by 80%. But, he has not given assurance on possible improvement in level crossing (LC) accidents, as there is no control over the circumstances that lead to such accidents. Train Actuated Warning Device (TAWD) – for sensing an approaching train two kms ahead and to sound an audio-visual warning device at level crossing gates (mainly unmanned ones), helps to reduce accidents at level crossings by giving adequate warning to road users. LC accidents not only dominate in terms of frequency, but can be more severe in their consequences than other types of railway accidents, simply because they can involve injuries and fatalities to railway passengers, as well as, to road vehicle occupants and other users of LCs. Accidents at LCs accounting for 22% of the total accidents on IR were responsible for 49% of total fatalities during the last decade. Increasing road construction and road vehicle population create greater opportunity for LC accidents to happen. Therefore to avoid this, a well designed sophisticated security system is needed. Hence we developed a prototype system using FPGA based SOC to ensure safety, particularly at unmanned level crossing.

Identifying Keywords and Key Phrases

Abstract:    Keywords and key phrases are widely used in large document collections. They describe the content of single documents and provide a kind of semantic metadata that is useful for a variety of purposes. Text mining is powerful tool to find useful and needed information from huge data set. For context based text mining, key phrases are used. Key phrases provide brief summary about the contents of documents. In document clustering, number of total cluster is not known in advance. In K-means, if prespecified number of clusters modified, the precision of each result is also modified. Therefore Kea, is algorithm for automatically extracting key phrases from text is used. In this kea algorithm, number of clusters is automatically determined by using extracted key phrases. Keameans clustering algorithm provide easy and efficient way to extract test document from large quantity of resources. Key phrase play important role in text indexing, summarization and categorization. Key phrases are selected manually. Assigning key phrases manually is tedious process that requires knowledge of subject. Therefore automatic extraction techniques are most useful.

An Approach for Extracting the Keyword Using Frequency and Distance of the Word Calculations

Abstract:    A significant word used in indexing or cataloguing is regarded as a Keyword.  Keywords provide a concise and precise high-level summarization of a document. They therefore constitute an important feature for document retrieval, classification, topic search and other tasks even if full text search is available. Keywords are useful tools as they give the shortest summary of the document. A keyword is identified by finding the relevance of the word with or without prior vocabulary of the document or the web page.  Extracting keywords manually is an extremely difficult and time consuming process, therefore it is almost impossible to extract keywords manually even for the articles published in a single conference. Therefore there is a need for automated process that extracts keywords from documents. This paper concentrates on the extracting the keywords by understanding the linguistic, non-linguistic and various other approaches but applying the simple statistics approach.

Some Studies Based On Red, Load Modeling, Line Outage Using Voltage Stability Analysis

Abstract:   There are many methods for overload relieving which have been reported for determining a secure operating point. Most of these methods use conventional optimization techniques, which are generally time–consuming from a computation point of view, especially for large systems. Further the conventional optimization technique updates all the controllers for most of the operating conditions. Under emergency conditions the operator, has to make quick decisions, with little concern for the theoretical optimality of the operating point and also the operator cannot move all the controllers to different settings within less time. In this context a simplified approach has been proposed in this paper for security oriented power system operation. The contribution of each generator for a particular overloaded line is first identified, then based on Relative Electrical Distance (RED) concept the desired proportions of generation for the desired overload relieving is obtained. Then based on the Generation Shift Sensitivity Factor (GSSF) concept the desired proportions of generation for the desired overload relieving is obtained. An attempt is also made to curtail the number of generators to be rescheduled based on GSSF for overload relieving Results obtained for network overload alleviation of 5 bus meshed system, IEEE 30-bus New England system are presented for illustration purposes.  The change in load sharing and generation scheduling was examined when the slack bus was changed, generator node changed and placed in the midpoint of the system, increase in generator number, load modeling was calculated. For all the above cases the voltage stability indices (Ve, Lindex and MSV) were calculated, recorded and then compared for best performance to the previous cases. The generation scheduling was determined with line outage and subsequent load shedding.

Visually Lossless Compression for Color Images with Low Memory Requirement using Lossless Quantization

Abstract:   In this paper a novel method is proposed to compress color images with no loss in quality. For the compression of the color image non uniform quantizers are used.  These non uniform quantizers are implemented for different areas. The blocks are classified, predicted, encoded and decoded to get the resulted output. The blocks are classified based on principle component analysis. The output provides a compressed image with high quality. Inorder to improve the compression ratio vector quantization for color images is proposed. This provides good quality images with high PSNR values. The algorithm uses low memory requirement.

Avoiding Impact of Jamming Using Multipath Routing Based On Network Content

Abstract:   Multiple-path source routing protocols allow a data source node to distribute the total traffic among available paths. In this paper, I consider the problem of jamming-aware source routing in which the source node performs traffic allocation based on empirical jamming statistics at individual network nodes. I formulate this traffic allocation as a lossy network flow optimization problem using portfolio selection theory from financial statistics. I show that in multisource networks, this centralized optimization problem can be solved using a distributed algorithm based on decomposition in network utility maximization (NUM). I simulate the achievable throughput using our proposed traffic allocation method in several scenarios.By this paper I can only develop provide multiple paths in centralized manner. This increases server overhead. To avoid this I propose source specie routing in network.

   I formulate this traffic allocation as a lossy network flow optimization problem using portfolio selection theory from financial statistics.

Web Mining: Methodologies, Algorithms and Applications

Abstract:   The World Wide Web is a popular and interactive medium to disseminate information today. It is a system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed via the Internet. With a web browser, one can view web pages that may contain text, images, videos, and other multimedia, and navigate between them via hyperlinks. With the recent explosive growth of the amount of content on the Internet, it has become increasingly difficult for users to find and utilize information and for content providers to classify and catalog documents on the World Wide Web. Traditional web search engines often return hundreds or thousands of results for a search, which is time consuming for users to browse. On-line libraries, search engines, and other large document repositories (e.g. customer support databases, product specification databases, press release archives, news story archives, etc.) are growing so rapidly that it is difficult and costly to categorize every document manually. To deal with these problems web mining is used. Web mining is the use of data mining techniques to automatically discover and extract information from the web documents and services. This paper presents an overview of web mining, its methodologies, algorithms and applications.

Web Mining using Semantic Data Mining Techniques

Abstract:  The purpose of Web mining is to develop methods and systems for discovering models of objects and processes on the World Wide Web and for web-based systems that show adaptive performance. Web Mining integrates three parent areas: Data Mining, Internet technology and World Wide Web, and for the more recent Semantic Web.  Semantic Web Mining is the outcome of two new and fast developing domains: Semantic Web and Data Mining. The Semantic Web is an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation. Data Mining is the nontrivial process of identifying valid, previously unknown, potentially useful patterns in data. Semantic Web Mining refers to the application of data mining techniques to extract knowledge from World Wide Web or the area of data mining that refers to the use of algorithms for extracting patterns from resources distributed over in the web. The aim of Semantic Web Mining is to discover and retrieve useful and interesting patterns from a huge set of web data. This web data consists of different kind of information, including web structure data, web log data and user profiles data. Semantic Web Mining is a relatively new area, broadly interdisciplinary, attracting researchers from: computer science, information retrieval specialists and experts from business studies fields. Web data mining includes web content mining, web structure mining and web usage mining. All of these approaches attempt to extract knowledge from the web, produce some useful results from the knowledge extracted and apply these results to the real world problems. This paper gives an overview of how the semantic web is used for mining the World Wide Web.

Finite Element Formulation for Prediction of Over-speed and burst-margin limits in Aero-engine disc

Abstract:    Turbo-machinery disks are heavy, highly stressed components used in gas turbine mainly due to over speed and operating temperatures.  The experimental burst test is always time consuming and very expensive. Hence the objective this work was to develop finite element (FE) prediction to find over-speed and burst-margin limits.  The FE method for the thermal and mechanical analysis is used for the determination of the over-speed and burst margin limit for high-speed aero-engine turbine disc for the speed between 10,000 rpm to 22,000 rpm at variable temperatures. The result shows that the magnitude of the tangential stress components is higher than that of the radial stress components for all the discs under variable temperature distribution.  The tangential stress components are higher at inner surface and decreases toward outer surface.  The burst margin speed was predicted as per formula and obtained for 18,500, 19,000 and more than 22,000 rpm for thermal + blade load + centrifugal load, thermal + centrifugal load and only centrifugal load respectively.

Text Detection and Recognition in Images using Edge Based Detection and Bilinear Interpolation

Abstract:   Text can be anything which conveys meaning through the use of signs. This revelation means that the realm of text can be extended from the form of written discourse to that of any object, regardless of whether it is aesthetic, written or spoken. ‘Text’ refers to anything which is capable of being read or interpreted.  For example ‘Text’ may represent natural language like English or it may be useful for describing the contents of an image.  Identifying text areas and recognizing the text is a complex task in image processing. Because the image may be grayscale or color or it represents a natural image, world map or space images. And the text appears in the image may also too small to recognize. This paper presents the combination of edge based detection and bilinear interpolation methods to identify and recognizing text in different images.

FPGA Implementation of Optimized 4 Bit BCD and Carry Skip Adders using Reversible Gates

Abstract:    The project proposes design of BCD adder and implementation of Carry Skip adder using the new concept of Reversible logic gate to improve the design in terms of  garbage’s  and area on chip.  Furthermore,  in  the recent  years,  reversible  logic has emerged as a promising technology having its applications in low power CMOS, quantum computing, nanotechnology and optical computing because of it’s zero power dissipation under ideal conditions. It is not possible to realize quantum computing without reversible logic gates. Thus, the project will provide the reversible logic implementation of the conventional BCD adder using NG and NTG gate and Carry skip adder using TSG. The proposed reversible logic implementation of the 4- bit BCD adder is optimized to obtain minimum number of reversible logic gates and minimum number of garbage outputs. This project work on the reversible BCD circuits designed and proposed here form the basis of the decimal ALU of a primitive quantum CPU. The designed and optimized 4-bit reversible BCD adder and existing Carry skip adder are implemented in VHDL Using Xilinx ISE 10.1 tool and simulated using ModelSim SE 6.3f. Implemented on FPGA Spartan-II.

Fingerprint Authentication System using Hybrid Classifiers

Abstract:    Fingerprints are considered as the most widely accepted biometric feature for uniquely identify a person in the field of biometrics. The existing system only contains bayes classifier to improve the retrieval speed and to perform one to many fingerprint matching. When compared to proposed system, the previous work degrades with performance features like accuracy, consistency and retrieval speed. This fingerprint authentication system uses the combination of Henry classification system at enrollment process and Bayes classification system at authentication process. This paper mainly focuses on fingerprint classification and presents an approach to speed up the matching process by classifying the fingerprint pattern into different groups using Henry classification system. By the speed of Bayes classifier, this system does not depend on the huge amount of fingerprint images in database, one can capture large number of training samples per finger. It can improve the performance features like retrieval speed, consistency and accuracy by using the combination of classifiers.

A Study of Data Mining Tools in Knowledge Discovery Process

Abstract:    Data mining, the extraction of hidden predictive information from large databases, is a powerful new technology with great potential to help companies focus on the most important information in their data warehouses. It uses machine learning, statistical and visualization techniques to discovery and present knowledge in a form which is easily comprehensible to humans. Various popular data mining tools are available today. Data mining tools predict future trends and behaviors, allowing businesses to make proactive, knowledge-driven decisions. Data mining tools can answer business questions that traditionally were too time consuming to resolve. They scour databases for hidden patterns, finding predictive information that experts may miss because it lies outside their expectations. This paper presents an overview of the data mining tools like Weka, Tanagra, Rapid Miner, Orange.

Paper Title:

Performance Evaluation of DSR with Reference to Varying Number of Nodes

Abstract:   Mobile ad hoc network is a dynamic network. In this network the mobile nodes dynamically form a temporary network without any centralized administration or the use of any existing network infrastructure. A number of routing protocols like Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector (DSDV) have been proposed. The Dynamic Source Routing protocol (DSR) is an efficient routing protocol designed specifically for use in wireless ad hoc networks of mobile nodes.  The DSR protocol is composed of the two mechanisms of "Route Discovery" and "Route Maintenance", which allow nodes to discover and maintain routes to arbitrary destinations. In this work an attempt has been made to compare the performance of DSR routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks on the basis of varying number of nodes. The simulations are carried out using the ns-2 network simulator, which is used to run wired and wireless ad hoc simulations. Analyses of the results are done in Tracegraph with Matlab.

Effect of Shear on Stress Distribution in Redundant Frames

Abstract:    In this paper, shear-modified expressions for fixed end moments and reactions were obtained for various beam loading conditions using the shear modified stiffness coefficients of elastic beams derived by the authors. By taking the effect of shear on the behavior of beam elements into consideration, a set of modified homogeneous solution of the beam elastic curve equation was obtained and used to derive expressions for fixed end moments and shears for beams with various end conditions and loading. The shear-modified fixed end moment expressions were used to analyze redundant frames. The results of the analysis were then compared with those obtained using the traditional expressions for fixed end moments and shears.

FPGA Implementation of Interference Avoidance and Hard To Intercept Frequency Agile Radar Processing

Abstract:   Jamming is one of the main problems for the functioning of the radar. Surveillance radar or searching radar has to overcome the jamming environment during the operation of the work. Jamming is of Diversified which includes narrow band, wide band jamming or its combination. Hence the solution for the Diversified jamming is obtained by using fast self switching frequency agility technique and its function is very effective. The detailed steps to achieve this function are described and the function is realized with FPGA using Hardware Description Language.The practical application on a surveillance radar shows that the module has good real time and anti jamming capacity. Modelsim will be used for functional simulation and results verification. Xilinx ISE will be used for synthesis; place & route and bit file generation. Xilinx FPGA board will be used for results verification.

Paper Title:

Measuring Semantic Similarity between Words Using Web Pages

Abstract:    Semantic similarity measures play an important role in the extraction of semantic relations. Semantic similarity measures are widely used in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Information Retrieval (IR). The work proposed here uses web based metrics to compute the semantic similarity between words or terms and also compares with the state-of-the-art. For a computer to decide the semantic similarity, it should understand the semantics of the words. Computer being a syntactic machine, it cannot understand the semantics. So always an attempt is made to represent the semantics as syntax. There are various methods proposed to find the semantic similarity between words. Some of these methods have used the precompiled databases like WordNet, and Brown Corpus. Some are based on Web Search Engine. The approach presented here is altogether different from these methods. It makes use of snippets returned by the Wikipedia or any encyclopedia such as Britannica Encyclopedia. The snippets are preprocessed for stop word removal and stemming. For suffix removal an algorithm by M. F. Porter is referred. Luhn’s Idea is used for extraction of significant words from the preprocessed snippets. Similarity measures proposed here are based on the five different association measures in Information retrieval, namely simple matching, Dice, Jaccard, Overlap, Cosine coefficient. Performance of these methods is evaluated using Miller and Charle’s benchmark dataset. It gives higher correlation value of 0.80 than some of the existing methods.

Image Steganography Using LSB and Edge – Detection Technique

Abstract:    Steganography is the technique of hiding the fact that communication is taking place, by hiding data in other data. Many different carrier file formats can be used, but digital images are the most popular because of their frequency on the Internet. For hiding secret information in images, there exist a large variety of steganographic techniques some are more complex than others and all of them have respective strong and weak points. Steganalysis, the detection of this hidden information, is an inherently difficult problem and requires a thorough investigation so we are using “Edge detection Filter”. In this paper search how the edges of the images can be used to hiding text message in Steganography .It give the depth view of image steganography and Edge detection Filter techniques.

  Steganography, Steganalysis, edge detection, digital image, gray image, RGB image, Binary image, 8 pixel connectivity. Method: In this paper search how the edges of the images can be used to hiding text message in Steganography. For that gray image has been presented. In this method tried to find binary value of each character of text message and then in the next stage, tried to find dark places of gray image (black) by converting the original image to binary image for labeling each object of image by considering on 8 pixel connectivity. Then these images have been converted to RGB image in order to find dark places. Because in this way each sequence of gray color turns into RGB color and dark level of grey image is found by this way if the Gary image is very light the histogram must be changed manually to find just dark places. In the final stage each 8 pixels of dark places has been considered as a byte and binary value of each character has been put in low bit of each byte that was created manually by dark places pixels for increasing security of the main way of least Significant bit steganography. Steganalysis then used to evaluate the hiding process to ensure the data can be hidden in best possible way

Paper Title:

Analysis of Data Mining Techniques on Real Estate

Abstract:    Data mining techniques are broadly classified into two classes (i) Statistical Techniques and (ii) Knowledge Discovery. The continuing rapid growth of on-line data and the widespread use of databases necessitate the development of techniques for extracting useful knowledge and for facilitating database access. This paper analyzes the results of multilayer perceptron with pace regression and suggests a very efficient pattern which can be proved beneficial for knowledge discovery. The analysis is done using real estate data set which contains 5821 tuples and 43 attributes and determines that in India’s scenario the demographic details of a person plays a very prominent role in identifying the investment behavior of a customer. In multilayer perceptron model, input layer is followed by two hidden layers. The first hidden layer contains 21 nodes as per various attribute weight age followed by second hidden layer which assigns re-processed weights to each of the 21 nodes. If we are discarding the demographic details then the model which is available consists of 13 Sigmoid nodes and there is a major change in error rate and correlation. We have used WEKA for analysis and found that in general multilayer perceptron(selected) is more efficient then pace regression(complete) in terms of statistical methods, but in Indian perception pace regression(complete) is more efficient than multilayer(selected).

Genetic Key Generation for Public Key Cryptography

Abstract:    The importance of cryptography can be judged by the fact that it is used almost everywhere. It is essential in e transactions, LAN data transfer, in Databases and even while storing data in our own computer. There are many methods of cryptography. Some of that have large complexity and are pretty cumbersome, while other are based on the theory of natural selection. The fact that selecting key for the public key cryptography is a selection process in which various keys can be categorized on the basis of their fitness, makes Genetic Algorithms a good contender for the process to be followed for generating key. Moreover, using Genetic Algorithm we can keep the strength of the key as good as any other key, still make the whole algorithm good enough to have a complexity as low as O(n2). The work is based on one such approach [1] and modifies the approach to generate keys that have more strength as compared to previous work [1].The work has been implemented and analyzed. The results obtained are good in terms of coefficient of autocorrelation. The samples satisfy the tests including gap test, frequency test etc.

Novel Approach to Software Metrics

Abstract:   Software metrics are becoming important day by day. Many metrics have been defined and have been related to class coupling cohesion etc. First of all it is difficult to choose the correct metrics for particular software and secondly most of the metrics only cater to requirements phase. It is to be understood that the importance of software metrics cannot be undermined in the design and implementation phase also. The work discusses the various techniques, their merits and demerits and intends to propose a new system for measuring the goodness of implementation phase. The concept of Object Oriented Software Metrics has also been explored. The proposed metrics uses the concept of Genetic Algorithms, which are based on the theory of natural selection. Thus, the work intends to introduce natural selection techniques for measuring the quality of software.

Investigation on Effect of Cryogenic Parameters on Wear Behavior of Aluminium-AL2O3 MMCSS Using Taguchi Method

Abstract:   The objective of this research work was to investigate the effect of cryogenic parameters such as cryogenic temperature (-100, -150 and -196C), duration of cryogenic treatment (0, 25 and 50 h) and wt. % of reinforcement (0, 10 and 20 wt. %) on wear behavior of Al/Al2O3 metal matrix composites (MMCs). The Al2O3 particulate reinforced MMCs were fabricated by liquid metallurgy technique. Specimens so prepared were treated for different cryogenic temperatures for different treatment duration using liquid nitrogen. Both un treated and cryogenic treated specimens were tested on pin-on-disc for constant load 20 N, sliding speed of 1.5 m/s and sliding distance of 3 km. Taguchi method is applied for predicting the optimum cryogenic treatment parameter that gives the lowest wear rate to the castings. The experimental and analytical results showed that the Taguchi method was successful in predicting cryogenic parameters that give the lowest wear rate and the wt. %.

A Research Study on importance of Testing and Quality Assurance in Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Models

Abstract:   In recent years, software testing is becoming more popular and important in the software development industry. Indeed, software testing is a broad term encircling a variety of activities along the development cycle and beyond, aimed at different goals. Hence, software testing research faces a collection of challenges. A consistent roadmap of most relevant challenges is proposed here. In it, the starting point is constituted by some important past achievements, while the destination consists of two major identified goals to which research ultimately leads, but which remains as reachable as goals. The routes from the achievements to the goals are paved by outstanding research challenges, which are discussed in the paper along with the ongoing work. Software testing is as old as the hills in the history of digital computers. The testing of software is an important means of assessing the software to determine its quality. Since testing typically consumes 40~50% of development efforts, and consumes more effort for systems that require higher levels of reliability, it is a significant part of the software engineering. Software testing is a very broad area, which involves many other technical and non-technical areas, such as specification, design and implementation, maintenance, process and management issues in software engineering. Our study focuses on the state of the art in testing techniques, as well as the latest techniques which representing the future direction of this area. Today, testing is the most challenging and dominating activity used by industry, therefore, improvement in its effectiveness, both with respect to the time and resources, is taken as a major factor by many researchers. The purpose of testing can be quality assurance, verification, and validation or reliability estimation. It is a tradeoff between budget, time and quality. Software Quality is the central concern of software engineering. Testing is the single most widely used approach to ensuring software quality.

Personal Authentication Using Multimodel Fusion

Abstract:   It is a Biometric used to authenticate a person, Fingerprint and Palmprint which is unique and permanent throughout a person’s life. A minutia matching is mostly used for fingerprint recognition, and can be classified as ridge ending and ridge bifurcation. Palmprint matching is a challenging problem because latent prints large number of minutiae in full prints, and the presence of many creases in latents and full prints. A match score estimate using the local ridge direction and frequency in palmprints developed a highly robust algorithm. This facilitates the extraction of ridge and minutiae features even in poor quality palmprints. . In this paper Fingerprint Recognition using Minutia Score Matching method. Distinctive information around each minutia is captured using a fixed-length minutia descriptor, Minutia Code andalignment-based minutiae matching algorithm is used to match two palmprints. In this paper person Verification based on fusion of Minutia Score Matching method for fingerprint and alignment-based minutiae matching algorithm for palmprints is presented.

Performance Analysis of Artificial Neural Networks and Statistical Methods in Classification of Oral and Breast Cancer Stages

Abstract:  Cancer staging can be divided into clinical and pathologic stage. In TNM (Tumor, Node, Metasis), prognostic tool have been identified and new methods for prognostic factors have been developed. This paper compares the classification accuracy of the TNM staging system along with that of Chi-Square Test, and Neural Networks. In this investigation, one hundred patients with breast cancer and One hundred twenty five oral cancer patients were studied. The data set using TNM variables (tumor size, number of positive regional nodes, distance metastasis, history of breast feeding, menstrual cycle, hereditary etc) of patients were used as input variables for both the classifications. When TNM classification and Chi-Square methods were compared, it was observed that Chi-Square classification closely followed that of clinical investigation. Artificial neural networks (MLP and RBF) are significantly more accurate than the TNM staging system when both use the TNM prognostic factors alone. New prognostic factors can be added to ANN to increase prognostic accuracy further.

Paper Title:

Compact Microstrip Antenna for WLAN and H-LAN Communication

Abstract:   A single layer, single feed compact rectangular antenna is proposed. Resonant frequency has been reduced drastically by cutting unequal rectangular slots at the edge of the patch & a circle in the middle. The width of the rectangular slots is different to improve the gain bandwidth performance of the antenna. The antenna size has been reduced by 41.8% when compared to a conventional rectangular microstrip patch antenna with a maximum of 24.9 MHz bandwidth at –16.3 dB return loss at 3.41 GHz. The characteristics of the designed structure are investigated by using MoM based electromagnetic solver, IE3D. There is reasonable agreement these simulated data and measured value. An extensive analysis of the return loss, radiation pattern, gain of the proposed antenna is shown in this paper. The simple configuration and low profile nature of the proposed antenna leads to easy fabrication and make it suitable for the applications in Wireless communication system.

Paper Title:

Discovering Application Level Semantics for Data Compression using Hybrid Compression Technique

Abstract:    Based on Natural phenomena many creatures form large social groups and move in regular patterns. Traditional works focus on finding the movement patterns of each single object or all objects. This paper propose an efficient distributed mining algorithm to jointly identify a group of moving objects and discover their movement patterns in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). The algorithm consists of a local mining phase and a cluster ensembling phase. The local mining phase adopts the Variable Length Markov (VMM) model together with Probabilistic Suffix Tree (PST) to find the moving patterns, as well as Highly Connected Component (HCC) to partition the moving objects. The cluster ensembling phase utilizes Jaccard Similarity Coefficient and Normalized Mutual Information to combine and improve the local grouping results. The distributed mining algorithm achieves good grouping quality and robustness. Moreover this paper extends a technique called Hybrid Compression Technique (HCT) based on the location information of nodes in the WSN. HCT is formulated to reduce the amount of energy consumption and increases the lifetime of the WSN. The experimental result shows that the technique have good ability of approximation to manage the WSN, and have high data compression efficiency and leverages the group movement patterns to reduce the amount of delivered data effectively and efficiently.

Simulation and Analysis of AODV routing protocol in VANETs

Abstract:   Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is a form of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET). The field of VANETs started gaining attention in 1980s and has now been an active field of research and development. VANETs provide us with the infrastructure for developing new systems to enhance drivers’ and passengers’ safety and comfort. There are many routing protocols that have been proposed and assessed to improve the efficiency of VANET. Simulator tool has been preferred over outdoor experiment because it is simple, easy and cheap. In this paper, simulation of one of the routing protocols i.e. AODV is done on simulators which allow users to generate real world mobility models for VANET simulations. The tools used for this purpose are SUMO, MOVE and NS2. MOVE tool is built on top of SUMO which is an open source micro-traffic simulator. Output of MOVE is a real world mobility model and can be used by network simulator NS-2. Then graphs were plotted using Tracegraph for evaluation. Based on the simulation results obtained, the performance of AODV is analyzed and compared in three different node density i.e. 4, 10 and 25 nodes with respect to various parameters like Throughput, Packet size, Packet drops, End to End delay etc.

Decentralized Data Offloading in High Performance Computing Centers Using Scratch Space

Abstract:    This  project  addresses  the  issues  associated  with  providing  Decentralized Data  Offloading  service   to  HPC  Centers.  HPC centers are High Performance Computing centers that use Parallel Processing for running advanced applications more reliably and efficiently. The main concept of this project is the offloading of data from a HPC Center to the destination site in decentralized mode. This project uses the decentralization concept where it is possible for the end user to retrieve the data even when the center logs out. This is possible by moving the data from the center to the Scratch Space. From Scratch space the data is moved to the intermediate storage nodes 1..n and from the nth node the data is transferred to the destination site within a deadline. These techniques are implemented within a Production Job Scheduler which schedules the jobs and Bit Torrent tool is used for data transfer in a decentralized environment. Thus the total offloading times are minimized; data loss and offload delays are also prevented.

Design of IEEE1588 Based Precision Time Protocol Using PSOS

Abstract:    The widespread clock synchronization standard, IEEE 1588, is purely master-slave based. The inherent disadvantage is that a failure of the master requires the election of a new one, during which the network nodes cannot be synchronized. The present paper proposes a compatible extension to the standard introducing architecture for fault-tolerant and seamless distribution of time information. In this paper the protocol is implemented using RTOS in a LAN with processor as one node. The processor having real time clock and is programmed for the synchronization between systems. The processor is the grand master clock which is going to generate clock pulses for all other nodes in the LAN. All the other systems in LAN will have a software stack that incorporates the full specification and functionality of the Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol along with a Timing Table and File Table. After the introduction of the architecture the common application of Ethernet is treated to outline the problems arising from this network type. The proposed solution significantly increases the accuracy of the synchronized network in case of failures and additionally provides backup strategies in case of network problems. Network Area Storage (NAS) is implemented as an application between the systems where communication is carried out using PTP.

Paper Title:

Channel Estimation on the bases of Multiuser Space time coding

Abstract:   In wireless transmission the randomness of the communication channel leads to random fluctuation in the received signal. This fluctuation known as fading. The fading is a fundamental problem in wireless communications because of this fading effect we cannot get exact signal at the receiver side. So to improve the signal performance at the receiver side diversity technique is the best method. Diversity defined as the method of conveying information through multiple independent random fades. Diversity gain results multiple paths between base station and user terminal and coding gain results from how symbols are correlated across transmit antennas. Antenna selection reduces the system cost and complexity by reducing the number of radio frequency (RF) chains while still retaining full diversity. Space time coding arises from a technique known as diversity. This technique uses multiple-input and multiple output (MIMO) concepts to overcome the problem of fading and interference in a wireless channel. Wireless communication using multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems enables increased spectral efficiency for a given total transmit power. Increased capacity is achieved by introducing additional spatial channels that are exploited by using space-time coding. The purpose of paper is to development of fundamental space-time (ST) coding and modulation methods to achieve the gains provided by multiple antennas, in terms of both improved robustness of the link and a higher spectral efficiency. Space time codes (STC) provides the details of the encoding and decoding procedures. The codes are designed on an information theoretic criterion. This paper presents the progress made towards determining the capacity and diversity benefits of multiple antennas under different assumptions about the underlying channel. Simulations suggest that the resulting codes allow for effective high-rate data transmissions in multiple-antenna communication systems. Rayleigh channel model and evaluate its performance in term of BER. Finally, the simulation results will be used to analyze and compare their performance. The research will be conducted in MATLAB environment.

Paper Title:

A Stateful Database Synchronization Approach for Mobile Devices

Abstract:   This paper proposes a Stateful Synchronization of data between a server-side database and a mobile database.  The Stateful Synchronization stage is an amalgamation of the Stateful and Synchronization modes.  This means that invalidation reports are sent only to the affected clients (Stateful) and they are sent periodically (Synchronous).The existing Synchronization Algorithms based on comparison of message digest values of the selected rows of both server-side database and mobile database needed for Synchronization.  But in the proposed approach the server keeps the information of the present state of data records at the mobile databases.  The Server also transmits the invalidation information at periodic intervals to the clients, whenever the data record relevant to the client is invalidated or modified at the server.  Here there is no need to calculate the Message Digest values for Synchronization of databases as the server maintains the state of clients.

GA Based Optimization and Critical Evaluation SHE Methods for Three-level Inverter

Abstract:  The Selective Harmonic Elimination Pulse-Width Modulation (SHE-PWM) has been an inclusive research area in the field of Power Converters. This technique offers a tight control of the harmonic spectrum of a given voltage waveform generated by a power electronic converter along with a low number of switching transitions. It involves the solution of non-linear transcendental equation sets representing the relation between the amplitude of the fundamental wave, harmonic components and the switching angles. This paper reports solutions to the Selective Harmonic Elimination (SHE) method based on novel usage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technique such as Genetic algorithm (GA) for single-phase three-level inverter. This paper uses Matlab GA Toolbox to generate the gate pulse pattern to eliminate the required order of harmonics present in the demanded fundamental output voltage.

Efficiency Optimization Control of Induction Motor Using Fuzzy Logic

Abstract:   Because of the low maintenance and robustness induction motors have many applications in the industries. Most of these applications need fast and smart speed control system. This paper introduces a smart speed control system for induction motor using fuzzy logic controller. Induction motor is modeled in synchronous reference frame in terms of dq form. The speed control of induction motor is the main issue achieves maximum torque and efficiency. Two speed control techniques, Scalar Control and Indirect Field Oriented Control are used to compare the performance of the control system with fuzzy logic controller. Indirect field oriented control technique with fuzzy logic controller provides better speed control of induction motor especially with high dynamic disturbances. The model is carried out using Matlab/Simulink computer package. The simulation results show the superiority of the fuzzy logic controller in controlling three-phase induction motor with indirect field oriented control technique.

Structure-Preserving Image Retargeting With Compression Assessment and Adaptive Registration

Abstract:    A number of algorithms have been proposed for image retargeting with image content retained as much as possible. But, they usually suffer from some artifacts in the results, such as ridge or structure twists. In this paper, a structure and content preserving image retargeting technique is used that preserves the content and image structure as best as possible. The image content saliency is estimated from the structure of the content using saliency map. A block structure energy is used for structure preservation along x and y directions. Block structure energy uses top-down strategy to constrain the image structure uniformly. However, the flexibilities of retargeting are different for different images. To overcome this problem, compression assessment scheme is used by combining the entropies of image gradient magnitude and orientation distributions. Finally, adaptive registration algorithm is applied. Adaptive registration is used to increase the PSNR ratio. Thus, the resized image is produced to preserve the structure and image content as best as possible. The global image structure is preserved and structure distortions are avoided.

A Special Method for Analysing and Correction of Set Effects in PIC Microcontroller

Abstract:    In this paper the fault tolerance behaviour of a PIC micro-controller has been checked. This experiment is based on injection of different transient faults in various points.. The experimental results have been compared in different aspects. Program counter is found to be as the most infected components after simulated results. The failure rate of this program counter is more than 50%. An SET at a node of combinational part may cause a transient pulse at the input of a flip-flop and consequently is latched in the flip-flop and generates a soft-error. When an SET conjoined with a transition at a node along a critical path of the combinational part of a design, a transient delay fault may occur at the input of flip-flop. Thus, studying the behaviour of the SET in these kinds of circuits needs special attention. This paper studies the dynamic behaviour of SET Effects in PIC microcontroller with massive critical paths in the presence of an SET. We also propose novel flip-flop architecture to mitigate the effects of such SETs in combinational circuits. Furthermore, the proposed architecture can tolerant a Single Event Upset (SEU) caused by particle strike on the internal nodes of a flip-flop.

Detecting Policy Anomalies in Firewalls by Relational Algebra and Raining 2D-Box Model

Abstract:   Firewalls are crucial elements in the computer networks. Due to lack of tools for analyzing firewall policies, most firewalls on the internet have been plagued with policy anomalies. In this paper, we propose a method; which analyzes the firewall by using Relational Algebra and Raining 2D-Box Model. It can find out all the anomalies in the firewall rule-set in the format that is usually used by many firewall products such as Cisco Access Control List, IPTABLES, IPCHAINS and Check Point Firewall-1. While the existing analyzing methods consider the anomalies between any two rules in the firewall rule-set, we consider more than two rules together at the same time to find out the anomaly. Therefore we can find all the hidden anomalies in the firewall rule-set. Results from analyzing can be used with the proposed rules-combination method presented in this paper, to minimize the firewall rule without changing the policy. This method could help administrator to analyze and modify a complex firewall policy.

Modifications in K-Means Clustering Algorithm

Abstract:    In our study, we introduce modifications in hard K-means algorithm such that algorithm can be used for clustering data with categorical attributes. To use the algorithm for categorical data, modifications in distance and prototype calculation are proposed. To use the algorithm on numerical attribute values, mean is calculated to represent centre, and euclidean distance is used to calculate distance. Whereas, to use it on categorical attribute values, proportional representation of all the categorical values (probability) is used to represent center, and proportional weight difference is used as distance measure. For mixed data, we used discretization on numerical attributes to convert these attribute in categorical attribute. And algorithm used for categorical attributes is used. Other modifications use the combined fundamentals from rough set theory, fuzzy sets and possibilistic membership incorporated in k-means algorithm for numeric value only data. Same modifications are applied on the algorithm developed for categorical, and mixed attribute data. Approximation concept from rough set theory deals with uncertainty, vagueness, and incompleteness. Fuzzy membership allows dealing with efficient handling of overlapping clusters. Possibi1istic approach simply uses the membership value of data point in a cluster that represents the typicality of the point in the cluster, or the possibility of the point belonging to the cluster. Noise points or outliers are less typical; hence typicality-based (possibilistic) memberships reduce the effect of noise points and outliers. To verify the performance of algorithms DB index and objective function values are used.

Novel Improved Fuzzy C-Mean Algorithm for MR-Image Segmentation

Abstract:   Image segmentation is a very important part of image processing. This paper presents an image segmentation approach using improved fuzzy c-mean (FCM) algorithm. The improved fuzzy c-mean algorithm is formulated by modifying the distance measurement of the original fuzzy c-mean algorithm. The Euclidean distance in the fuzzy c-mean algorithm is replaced by the jaccard index and correlation distance, and thus the corresponding algorithm is derived and called as the improved fuzzy c-mean algorithm which is never earlier reported and that is shown to be more robust than original fuzzy c-mean algorithm.

Paper Title:

Study of Fuzzy Based Classifier Parameter Using Fuzzy Matrix

Abstract:   In the area of remote sensing, the decision making are not generally deterministic due to the involvement of fuzziness in the classification of remotely sensed imagery. A considerable number of identification errors are due to pixels that show an affinity with several information classes. The fuzzy concept is a valuable tool for dealing with classification problems. In remote sensing classification, fuzzy based classifiers are becoming increasingly popular. Due to the wide acceptance of  fuzzy c-mean (FCM) and possibilistic c-means (PCM) classifiers, this has been used as a benchmark to evaluate the performance of other classifiers with optimized value of weighting exponent ‘m’ in this research. Evaluation of soft classification through FERM, SCM and Fuzzy kappa coefficient, using Euclidean norm based measures led to an improvement wherein FCM-Overall accuracy (MIN-LEAST) operator reflects higher classification accuracy, i.e., 97% and the value of Fuzzy Kappa coefficient is 0.97 with minimum uncertainty in it, for the optimized value of weighting exponent ‘m’ i.e.  4.0. In this experimentation two supervised classifiers namely FCM and PCM  have been selected to demonstrate the improvement in the classification accuracy by FERM, SCM, MIN-MIN, MIN-LEAST, Fuzzy Kappa coefficient and uncertainty in SCM and  Fuzzy Kappa coefficients.
