Paper Title:

A Fast FPGA Based Architecture for Skin Region Detection

Abstract:   This paper presents an efficient FPGA based architecture for skin region detection algorithm from a facial image. A lot of research work has been carried out on skin region detection for image processing applications. But there is a very limited work to design a hardware module for the same purpose which is very useful for a real time system where speed is a key factor. In this paper, an attempt has been made towards the designing of an efficient FPGA based skin region detection algorithm which is better than the existing architectures in respect of both space and time complexity. The methodology proposed by Zhang et al. in 2000, has been chosen as the skin region detection algorithm for the present work due to its property of simplicity resulting in faster computation. The experimental result shows a significant improvement in space complexity over an existing architectures and the module is able to operate at 285.919MHz speed which is more than twice of the operating speed of the existing architectures.

Paper Title:

Development of a Bangla Character Recognition (BCR) System for Generation of Bengali Text from Braille Notation

Abstract:   This paper presents a novel Bangla Character Recognition (BCR) system which converts a Braille Document into Bengali text which is not attempted in research work so far. The system is capable of doing the extraction of Braille Characters from a Braille document followed by decoding them into Bengali characters and then the decoded Bengali characters are normalized to Bengali text which is in human-understandable form. This system can be very useful for the blind communities and the associated persons who want to know the Braille system through Bengali language. The proposed methodology has been tested on the Braille documents collected from the Jhunka Pratibondhi Aloke Niketan, West Bengal.

Paper Title:

Advanced Scheme for Data Transmission with Early Congestion Detection

Abstract:   We develop a distributed opportunistic routing scheme with early congestion detection for multi-hop wireless networks. The introduced scheme utilizes the functionality of opportunistic routing and considering an expected average per packet reward criterion, shortest path and so on. Congestion in network causes packet loss and delayed packet delivery. By detecting congestion earlier, the routing scheme which utilizes the opportunities in the network can increase the rate of performance and reliability of the network. We implement it in the NS2 simulator and experiment with AODV routing protocol.

Paper Title:

Pipelining Based Floating Point Division: Architecture and Modeling

Abstract:   In this paper, an efficient FPGA based architecture for a fractional division based on Newton-Raphson method for IEEE single-precision floating point number is presented. With advent of more graphic, scientific and medical applications, floating point dividers have become indispensable and increasingly important. However, most of these modern applications need higher frequency or low latency of operations with minimal area occupancy. In this work, highly optimized pipelined architecture of an IEEE-754 single precision floating point divider is designed to achieve high frequency on FPGA. The division is performed by multiplying the numerator by the reciprocal value of the denominator and the initial approximation of the denominator is obtained from a Look-up Table.

Paper Title:

An Approach of Visual Cryptography Scheme by Cumulative Image Encryption Technique Using Image-key Encryption, Bit-Sieved Operation and K-N Secret Sharing Scheme

Abstract:   Visual Cryptography is a special type of encryption technique to obscure image-based secret information which can be decrypted by Human Visual System (HVS). It is imperceptible to reveal the secret information unless a certain number of shares (k)  or more  among n number of shares are superimposed. As the decryption process is done by human visual system, secret information can be retrieved by anyone if the person gets at least k number of shares. For this, simple visual cryptography is very in secure. In this current work we have proposed a method where we done the encryption in several level. First we use a variable length image key to encrypt the original image then bit sieve procedure is used on resultant image and lastly we perform K-N secret sharing scheme on the final encrypted image. Decryption is done in reverse level of encryption that means we do K-N secret sharing scheme, bit sieve method and image key decryption respectively. As multiple levels of encryptions are being used thus the security is being increased in great extant.

Dynamic Password Schemes for Protecting Users from Password Theft for E-Banking

Abstract:   In this paper, we discuss how to prevent users passwords from being stolen by adversaries in online banking and automated teller machines. We propose dynamic password mechanisms in which a user has a mobile, in that mobile the dynamic password scheme is implemented using Android Operating System, so dynamic password requires a small amount of human computing to secure users passwords. Among the schemes, we have a default method (i.e., traditional password scheme), system recommended functions, user-specified functions, user-specified programs. A function/program is used to implement the dynamic password concept. For user-specified functions, we adopt secret little functions and a constant value, in which security is enhanced by hiding both. The computation of human can be reduce by using mobile applications with builtin dynamic password. Here the user only needs to input the system random digits which the system provides and then the dynamic password is automatically calculated for the user. Thus we can overcome the main attacks like phishing, key-logger, shoulder-surfing, mobile malwar attacks simultaneously.

Laplace and Morlet Wavelet Analysis for Gear Fault Diagnosis: A Comparative Study

Abstract:   The machines need to be developed with high speed and light weight to acquire market in this present competitive world and maintenance of these machines become critical and important to ensure failure free operation. Gear drives form a major component of any industrial machine and detection of faults at incipient stage is very crucial in order to reduce maintenance downtime of machine before the major failure. Vibrations emitted from faulty gears are rather non stationary and non-periodic signals and hence it is difficult to detect the gear fault by conventional FFT analysis. Therefore an effective and sophisticated signal processing method using wavelet analysis has successfully being applied. This paper investigates the application of Laplace wavelet kurtosis for gear fault diagnosis. Also, this paper presents the optimisation of wavelet parameters to maximize the kurtosis parameter in order to render the wavelet coefficients sensitive to the generated fault signals. Further, this paper compares the use of Morlet and Laplace wavelet kurtosis for automated fault detection in gears for various fault stages and also compares the Laplace and Morlet wavelet kurtosis for varying working condition.

Hydro Chemical Characteristics and Groundwater Quality Assessment in Parts of Pambar River Basin, Tamil Nadu, India

Abstract:   Understanding geochemical characteristics of groundwater is vital for the support of habitat and for maintaining the quality of base flow to rivers, while its quality assessment is essential to ensure sustainable safe use of the resources for drinking, agricultural, and industrial purposes. Twenty seven sample sites were selected systematically and samples were taken for a reference line study to understand the geochemistry of the groundwater and to assess the overall physicochemical faces for pre and post monsoon. Sampling was carried out using pre-cleaned polyethylene containers. The physical and chemical parameters of the analytical results of groundwater were compared with the standard guideline values recommended by the World Health Organization for drinking and public health standards. Thematic maps pertaining to TDS, EC, TH, Cl, NO3, SO4, F , SAR, Na, Na % and RSC were generated using ArcGIS platform. To find out the distribution pattern of the concentration of different elements and to demarcate the higher concentration zones, the spatial maps for various elements were also generated, discussed, and presented.

Paper Title:

Secure Cloud Storage with Multi Cloud Architecture

Abstract:   The use of cloud computing has increased rapidly in many organizations. Cloud computing provides many benefits in terms of low cost and accessibility of data. Ensuring the security of cloud computing is a major factor in the cloud computing environment, as users often store sensitive information with cloud storage providers but these providers may be untrusted. Dealing with “single cloud” providers is predicted to become less popular with customers due to risks of service availability failure and the possibility of malicious insiders in the single cloud. A movement towards “multi-clouds”, or in other words interclouds or cloud-of-clouds has emerged recently.    In this paper, we provide solutions for secure cloud storage in multi cloud based system. This work aims to promote the use of multi-clouds due to its ability to reduce security risks that affect the cloud computing user.

Keywords:  Cloud computing, single cloud, multi-clouds, cloud storage, data integrity, data intrusion, service availability.

ARM Based Design of Density and Viscosity Measuring Instrument For Petroleum

Abstract:   Real-time viscosity measurement remains a necessity for highly automated industry. The off-line viscosity measuring destroys the real time performance and the precision, and the change of temperature causes a biggish impact to the output. Density is one of the most universal and easily measurable qualitative characteristics of petroleum products. Knowledge of this quantity enables one not only optimize the operation of internal combustion engines but also to grade the petroleum products and take their mass into account. This paper proposed an improved method based on single chip, which realized the on-line signals gathering and the data processing of many kinds of signals, to measure the fluid viscosity. The configuration of the sensor was given, which was designed independently after many times tests and error analysis. The temperature measurement was carried out by temperature sensor and it’s signal conditioning circuits.

Paper Title:

Mining Foreign Exchange rates using Bio- inspired Neuralnets

Abstract:   To calculate the profit and risk associated with international transactions, currency exchange forecasting is highly desirable. If the forecasting is done accurately then the transaction can give maximum profit.To perform the above task several statistical and machine learning methods have already been proposed by the researchers in the literature. However this paper presents a comparative study between two predominantly used bio-inspired optimization techniques namely particle swarm optimization (PSO) and differential evolution (DE) to forecast the currency exchange rates for one day and one week ahead. For both the algorithms the functional link artificial neural network (FLANN) model is taken into consideration. In the proposed model DE and PSO are used as the evolutionary algorithms for supplementing the optimized value of unknown parameters of the FLANN model. Root mean square error (RMSE) and mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) are considered for performance evaluation of the proposed model. Here JAPANESE YEN(JPY),  INDIAN RUPEE(INR), FRENCH FRANC(FRF) to US DOLLAR(USD)  datasets are considered as the  training and testing datasets.The results of FLANN-DE and FLANN-PSO are analyzed.The simulation results show that FLANN-DE outperforms the FLANN-PSO  model  regarding the accuracy , convergence speed over different time spans.

Paper Title:

Energy Storage: A Review

Abstract:   Efficient and economic energy storage, if implemented in the current power infrastructure on a large scale, could bring about some of the greatest changes in the power industry in decades. Additionally, energy storage would improve the reliability and dynamic stability of the power system by providing stable, abundant energy reserves that require little ramp time and are less susceptible to varying fuel prices or shortages. Energy storage can shift the higher peak load to off-peak hours in order to level the generation requirement, allowing generators to run more efficiently at a stable power level, potentially decreasing the average cost of electricity. Additionally, increased energy storage capacity can avoid generation capacity, decrease transmission congestion, and help enable distributed generation such as residential solar and wind systems. In this paper energy storage methods are discussed in such a way to provide a detailed overview of how each of the energy storage devices work so that the reader is able to get a better feel for the potential benefits and drawbacks of each device.

Smart Card Reader Meeting ISO 7816-3 and EMV Level 1 Specifications Using PIC24F Microcontroller

Abstract:   A smart card is a pocket-sized card containing an embedded intelligent integrated circuit (i.e., intelligence to respond to a request from an external device). Smart cards contain a microprocessor chip that serves the dual functions of communication and extensive data storage. These cards are user friendly and have the capacity to retain, and protect the critical information stored in an electronic form. Smart cards are being deployed in most public and private sectors. Typically, a smart card reader is used for data transactions with the smart card. The smart card can be divided into two types: 1) Contact type 2) Contactless type. In contact type smart cards, the card communicates with the reader through a direct physical contact. In contactless type smart cards, the card communicates with the reader through a remote radio frequency interface. This paper shows the design of smart card reader meeting ISO 7816-3 & EMV Level 1 specifications using PIC24F microcontroller.

Paper Title:

Environmental Impacts of Kashimbilla Multipurpose Buffer Dam and Associated Structures, Taraba State, Nigeria

Abstract:   People keep struggling for decades in order to shape the ecosphere in a manner they wants since the first day. The period in which this struggles was observed most intensively was the period covering the transition from a migrant and primitive hunter society to a resident life and farming. The most deep-seated environmental modification against the nature that had been realized in the history of the human being has started at this time. Even the development and downfall of civilizations are correlated to this interaction between the people and nature. One of the most important roles in utilizing water resource by dams were started to construct long years before gaining present information about hydrology and hydro-mechanics. Dams have a great deal of impact on the environment besides their benefits like controlling stream regimes consequently preventing floods, obtaining domestic and irrigation water from the stored water and generating energy. The environmental impacts of Kashimbilla dams are classified according to different criterions as long term and short term impacts, the impacts on the close area and the impacts on the regions where the dam services, social and unsocial impacts, beneficial and harmful impacts. These effects may be ordered in an intensive and complicated manner like climatic, hydraulic, biologic, social, cultural archaeological etc.

A New Approach to Prevent ARP Spoofing

Abstract:   Many intra-domain protocols (like IP, ARP) do not have protection against malicious activities by network users. As   a result IP and ARP spoofing are used by attackers to launch Man in the Middle (MITM), Denial of Service (DoS) and other attacks. These attacks are severe threats to the network users.   Detecting   and    preventing    IP-ARP spoofing will enhance the security to great extent. This paper presents a simple mechanism for detection and prevention of IP-ARP spoofing.

A Recent Survey on Incremental Temporal Association Rule Mining

Abstract:   One of the most challenging areas in data mining is Association rule mining. Several algorithms have been developed to solve this problem. These algorithms work efficiently with static datasets. But if new records are added time to time to the datasets means if the datasets are incremental in nature, scenario of association rules may changed. Some of the new itemsets may become frequent, while some previously derived frequent set may become infrequent. Due to updated dataset some rules that are already derived may dropped and some new rules may arrive up. For the up to-date rules over the updated dataset, if the association mining technique redo the rule generation process for the whole dataset, based on the frequent itemsets, simply by discarding the earlier computed results, it will inefficient. It is mostly due to the multiple scanning over the older dataset. Recently, temporal data mining has become a core technical data processing technique to deal with changing data. Actually, temporal databases are continually appended or updated so that the discovered rules need to be updated. In this paper we represent the survey of various methods for incremental as well as temporal association rule mining.

Response of Coastal Structures against Earthquake Forces Considering Soil-Structure Interaction and Tsunami Run-Up Forces

Abstract:   The catastrophic tsunamis generated by the great Indonesia earthquake triggered on December 26th, 2004, warned the coastal community on preparedness and constructing safe structures to resist against such events. Earthquake occurs suddenly without warning and bulk of destruction takes place within a short period of time. Similarly, when tsunami strikes, there will be a tremendous loss and damage in coastal regions. Apart from having a sound warning system in case of tsunamis, it is necessary to build Earthquake–Tsunami Resistant (ETR) shelters, where residents living in coastal plain regions cannot move to farther distances before tsunami arrives the coast. Hence it is necessary to establish analytical methods for obtaining the response of coastal structures subjected to earthquake forces considering soil-structure interaction and also against tsunami run-up forces. A three storied shelter building with four different cases of structural configurations and another typical structure, an elevated water tank of 6 lakh liters capacity are chosen for the analysis. A comparative study is made on the response of these structures against earthquake forces, when they rest on different soil/rock media. In the analysis, IS 1893-2002 seismic code for determining the base shear values against earthquake loads and FEMA 55 to calculate hydrodynamic and impact forces against tsunami impact are used.  From the results, it is observed that the refuge shelters that are chosen are more vulnerable to high tide tsunami loads compared to earthquake loads. In general, it is noticed that Base shears and Displacements increase with the decreases in stiffness of the soil and this increase attributes more due to rocking effect of the soil. Buildings with open storey at bottom and upper stories with heavy mass give significant rise to time period of these structures causing early failures during an earthquake before tsunami arrives. In this study, a useful guideline is evaluated demarcating the heights below which earthquake forces and above which tsunami forces are predominant in the structure.

Spectrum Efficiency for Rate-Adaptive MIMO OSFBC-OFDM Systems over Various Adaptation Policies

Abstract:   In this paper, closed-form expressions for capacities per unit bandwidth for multiuser MIMO-OFDM systems employing Orthogonal Space-Frequency Block Coding (OSFBC) over multipath frequency-selective fading channels are derived for optimal power 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 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.

A New Efficient Routing Protocol for MANET

Abstract:   MANET can be defined as a  accumulation  of mobile hosts which move in different directions and speeds with no  need to create connectivity with existing network infrastructure. Various routing protocols  have been made from the time of  the existence of ad hoc networks.   We proposes a new routing protocol for ad hoc networks which will  reduce network overhead, power consumption, Multi-user Interference  (MUI), and provide link reliability.

8 Bit Second-Order Continuous-Time Band-Pass Sigma-Delta ADC

Abstract:  In this paper, a technique to design the 8 bit continuous-time band-pass Sigma-Delta converters for 70 MHz is presented. The conversion from discrete-time (z-domain) loop-filter transfer function into continuous-time (s-domain) is done by using Impulse-invariant-transformation. The transconductor-capacitor filter is used to implement continuous-time loop-filter. A latched-type comparator and a TSPC D Flip-flop are being used as the quantizer of the Sigma-Delta converter. The decimation filter is designed by a CIC Filter and an FIR filter of high-speed digital. A full adder cell and a TSPC D Flip-flop are used as basic building blocks of CIC Filter and FIR Filter. The 8 bit second-order continuous Sigma-Delta converter circuit has been implemented in Cadence using 180nm CMOS technology and the total power consumption is 57.9 mW. At a supply voltage of 3 V, the maximum SNDR is measured to be 35.13 dB, which corresponds to a resolution of 8 bits.

Design of Efficient SOC Bus Based on WISHBONE

Abstract:   In this paper wishbone bus is used to interconnect variety of devices. SOC designs are usually based on FPGA and ASIC which are widely used in embedded systems. In SOC design flexible interconnection between variety of devices is crucial to get maximum performance. Usually, in SOC design variety of devices such as high performance units like CPU, DMA, RAM ext., low performance devices like UART, GPIO’s are connected to a single bus. The interconnecting bus runs at the speed of low speed device. An extra logic needs to be used in SOC to increase the performance of low speed devices, but this increases overall system power consumption. This paper proposes double bus architecture to interconnect the different devices according to the speed of the devices. High speed devices are connected to first level wishbone bus and low speed devices are connected to second level bus. This architecture shows that double bus design is feasible in low power SOC design.

Artificial Neural Networks (ANNS) For Prediction of Engineering Properties of Soils

Abstract:   The behaviour of soil at the location of the project and interactions of the earth materials during and after construction has a major influence on the success, economy and safety of the work. Another complexity associated with some geotechnical engineering materials, such as sand and gravel, is the difficulty in obtaining undisturbed samples and time consuming involving skilled technician. Shear strength of a soil is perhaps the most important of its Engineering properties, as all stability analyses in the field of Geotechnical Engineering are dependent on Shear strength of soil. Permeability is very important engineering property of soils. Knowledge of permeability is essential in settlement of buildings, yield of wells, seepage trough and below the earth structures. The compression of a saturated soil under a steady static pressure is known as consolidation. It is entirely due to expulsion of water from the voids.  To cope up with the difficulties involved, an attempt has been made to model Engineering properties of soil i.e. Shear Strength parameters, permeability and compression index in terms of Fine Fraction (FF), Liquid Limit (WL), Plasticity Index (IP), Maximum Dry density(MDD), and Optimum Moisture content(OMC). A multi-layer perceptron network with feed forward back propagation is used to model varying the number of hidden layers. For this purposes 68 soils test data was collected from the laboratory test results. Among the test data 47 soils data is used for training and remaining 27 soils for testing using 60-40 distribution. The architectures developed are 5-5-4(inputs-hidden layers-outputs), 5-6-4, 5-7-4, and 5-8-4. Model with 5-8-4 architecture is found to be quite satisfactory in predicting Engineering properties of soil i.e. Shear Strength parameters, permeability and compression index. Pictorial presentation of results gives a better idea than quantative assessment. A graph is plotted between the predicted values and observed values of outputs for training and testing process, from the graph it is found that all the points are close to equality line, indicating predicted values are close to observed values.

Optimal Power Flow Using Dynamic Bacterial Forging Algorithm

Abstract:   Optimal power flow (OPF) problem has already been attempted as a static optimization problem, by adopting conventional gradient-based methods and more recently, no conventional ones, such as evolutionary algorithms. However, as the loads, generation capacities and network connections in a power system are always in a changing status, these static-oriented methods are of limited use for this issue. This paper presents a new algorithm, dynamic bacterial foraging algorithm (DBFA), for solving an OPF problem in a dynamic environment in which system loads are changing. DBFA is based on the recently proposed BFA which mimics the basic foraging behaviour of E. coli bacteria. A selection scheme for bacteria’s reproduction is employed in DBFA, which explores the self-adaptability of each bacterium in the group searching activities. DBFA has been evaluated, for optimizing the power system fuel cost with the OPF embedded, on the standard IEEE 30-bus with a range of load changes which occurred in different probabilities. The simulation results show that DBFA can more rapidly adapt to load changes, and more closely trace the global optimum of the system fuel cost, in comparison with BFA and some other techniques.

An Efficient Technique Used To Generate Test Case on Embedded System Using Fuzzy Logic 

Abstract:   Logical generation of the test case process ensures that the test cases have been derived in a consistent and objective manner and which covers all the requirements of the system. Temperature monitoring and controlling of nuclear reactor system is used which is an embedded system in which simulation is done and fuzzy logic is used to generate the test cases. The goal of my paper is to make a more efficient technique that could find the least number of test cases of the output domain for the hardware so that we can analyse the accuracy. Fuzzy logic is best technique because it reduces the test cases of an output domain in few second and gives the correct result. As the test cases are reduced, it will increase the performance of the system and save the time, effort of the user.

VHDL Implementation of IDEA Architectures

Abstract:   Cryptography is the art of keeping data secure from unauthorized access so as to guarantee that only the intended users can access it. Data security is an important issue in computer networks and cryptographic algorithms are essential parts in network security.This paper covers the implementation of the International Data Encryption Algorithm (IDEA) using Very Large Scale Integrated Circuits Hardware Description Language (VHDL) with the help of Xilinx – ISE 9.1. In terms of security, this algorithm is very much superior. In IDEA, the plaintext and the cipher text are 64 bit blocks, while the secret key is 128 bit long. The cipher is based on the design concept of mixing operations from different algebraic groups.

Study of Transmission Characteristics of MIMO System for Different Modulation Techniques

Abstract:   The performance of 2X2 Multiple Input multiple Output (MIMO) antenna systems has been analyzed by determining the transmit diversity using Alamouti Space Time Coding (STBC) techniques. For the BPSK and QPSK modulation technique transmission characteristics are determined. Adaptive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) has been used presuming flat fading Rayleigh channel. On receiver side, linear equalization techniques such as Zero Forcing (ZF) and Maximum Likelihood Detector (MLD) were employed for computing BER. It is found that for 5 dB Eb/No, the BER values of BPSK using ZF Equalizer 0.0687, BPSK using MLD Equalizer 0.0151, QPSK using ZF Equalizer 0.0070, QPSK using MLD Equalizer 1 is obtained. But BER value for BPSK Modulation with 2X2 Alamouti STBC and the BER value for QPSK Modulation with same 2X2 Alamouti STBC are obtained respectively as 0.0038 and 0.0034. The results indicate that the STBC multiplexing schemes show an overall improvement of ~67.95 dB between BPSK and QPSK modulation for the same 5 dB Eb/No  value. The STBC multiplexing for digital transmission shows significant improvement in BER performance with higher levels of digital modulation. MATLAB tool is used for simulation and results are discussed in the paper.

Design and Implementation of Impulse Distributed Waveform Generator Time Interleaved Impulse Generator

Abstract:   This paper presents the design and implementation of impulse distributed waveform generator which generates UWB pulses with a bandwidth of 7GHz (1GHz to 8GHz).It utilizes time interleaved impulse generators to generate waveforms. Wide bandwidth is achieved by reducing the width of the impulses generated by time-interleaved impulse generators. Each of the impulse generators are triggered by the tunable delay unit which introduces the delay between the impulses generated. The Pulse shaping circuit shapes the impulses, by pulse amplitude tuning. The amplitude tuned impulses are combined together to obtain the waveform by using on-chip transmission line. Pulse width tuning and delay tuning makes this circuit reconfigurable. The pulse width can be tuned from 80ps to 1ns, and trigger delay can be varied from 30ps to 100ps.

Protection of Transmission Lines using Discrete Wavelet Transform

Abstract:   The main objectives of transmission line protection scheme are precisely differentiate the faults zone and  indicate exact fault type using one end data only so that only faulted line will be removed .Fault generates transient current wave contained distinct frequency bands. In this paper discrete wavelet transform is used to capture two bands of frequencies from the transient current signal using db1 as a mother wavelet. The spectral energies of these two bands are obtained to determine the fault zone. The faulted phase selection is done by the discrete wavelet transform using Haar as the mother wavelet. The coefficient of a frequency band in the range of 1 KHz-3 KHz are obtained for the three phase and ground currents. The average value of the coefficients of each current wave is then computed and used to classify the faulted phase. Fault simulations are performed using MATLAB/Simulink and then the results are interfaced to MATLAB where the algorithm is implemented.

Secure Sharing of Health Records in Cloud Using ABE

Abstract:   In recent years, Personal health record (PHR) has emerged as a patient-centric model of health information exchange. This stands in contrast with the more widely used electronic medical record, which is operated by institutions (such as a hospital) and contains data entered by doctors or billing data to support insurance claims. Individual Patient is the owner of the PHR. The main purpose of a PHR is to provide accurate and complete summary of an individual's medical history which is accessible online. Especially, each patient is promised the full control of his/her medical records and can share his/her health record with a wide range of users, including healthcare providers, family members or friends. PHR is often outsourced to be stored at a third party, such as cloud providers. To assure the patients’ control over the access to their own PHRs, it is a promising method to encrypt the PHRs before outsourcing. Heretofore, issues such as risks of privacy exposure, scalability in key management, flexible access and efficient user revocation have remained, which are some of the most important challenges toward achieving fine-grained, cryptographically enforced data access control.

Integrating Non-Conventional Energy Sources to Supply a Local Load with Fuel Cell as Backup System

Abstract:   The electrical energy is distributed worldwide by overhead transmission lines or cables from generating stations. However, power systems are still needed at locations which are isolated or far from electrical energy suppliers. Renewable energy resources in micro-grid power systems are interesting topics of recent research as environmental pollution and scarcity of energy resources come to the fore. Moreover the integration of renewable energy systems (RESs) in smart grids (SGs) is a tough task, mainly due to the intermittent, varying and unpredictable nature of the sources, typically wind or sun due to changing weather conditions throughout the year. Sometimes there are low wind speeds and lesser sunny conditions and therefore power generation by solar and wind energy is reduced. This paper proposes a system in which solar and wind energy is integrated with fuel cell to provide a continuous power supply to a small local load to enhance reliability of power supply. Here PV and wind energy is used as the primary source of power with the fuel cell section acting as a current source, feeding only the deficit power. The proposed system is analyzed with a case study using MATLAB.

WSN Integrated Cloud Computing for N-Care System (NCS) Using Middleware Services

Abstract:   The number of wireless devices with powerful sensing capabilities is constantly growing. A mobile phone is an example of a device that is packed with several powerful sensors.  Cloud computing is another area that been in focus over the last decade. Cloud computing can be defined as an architectural abstraction that provides scalability and reliability based on requirement.  The challenge lies in the fact that sensors for different purposes are heterogeneous in nature. We propose a framework called the N-Care System that utilizes heterogeneous wireless networks to collect data, cloud services to provide additional computational capabilities and provides information for different types of end users. A wireless sensor network consisting of sensors that possess both sensing and transmitting capabilities forms a communication back-bone that can capture a wide variety of data.  Multiple sensors are grouped in to a cluster that consists of an internet capable computing device called cluster head that collects data from the constituent sensor nodes and pushes it in to a cloud based database.  End users can log in and access data from sensors that fall under the user’s domain.

Regression Testing for Data-Driven Applications

Abstract:   Regression testing is a part of software maintenance and it consumes about two-third of the overall software life cycle cost. It is an expensive activity that is done whenever there are some changes takes places in software. Regression testing tests both the modified code and other parts of the program that may be adversely affected by the changes introduced in the program or a part of it. The regression testing of database applications concerns with the state of the database as it contributes too many components that increase the complexity of the applications because in case of database the test cases are not independent of each other and the database requires to be reset all the time. In this paper we have done a survey of regression testing techniques for testing database applications.

Paper Title:

Regression Test Case Selection for Testing Database Applications

Abstract:   Regression testing is a part of software maintenance and it consumes about two-third of the overall software life cycle cost. It is the process of executing the full or partial test cases from the original test suite after any modifications to the original program. It tests both the modified code and other parts of the program that may be adversely affected by changes introduced in the program or a part of it. It is an expensive activity that is done whenever there are some changes in software. Regression testing tests both the modified code and other parts of the program that may be adversely affected by changes introduced in the program or a part of it. Test case selection selects the test cases to test the modified as well as unmodified part of the program from the original test suite. The regression testing of database applications concerns with the state of the database as it contributes too many components that increase the complexity of the applications because in case of database the test cases are not independent of each other and the database requires to be reset every time. The database applications are frequently modified due to the need of different requirements like, increase in number of users, components and data. Therefore regression testing of database applications is an essential activity as it requires maintaining the state of the database. It may be conducted either manually by re-executing a subset of all test cases of the original test suite or using automated tools. These tools enable the software testers to capture test cases and results for subsequent playback and comparison. In this paper, we have shown a study of the time taken in resets made to a database that is done manually or automatically with the help of various tools. We have also proposed the way in which the reset time of database state is reduced to a large extent. The database always requires to be reset after executing every query that too is done manually by the tester or with the help of some automated tool. In our work after reducing the reset time of database state we have presented the test cases with the details of the time taken in execution and code coverage of database application. Then the resulted test cases are selected from the original test cases that achieves the selection of maximum number of fault revealing test cases.

Gait Recogniton System for Human Identification Using BPNN Classifier

Abstract:   Recognition of any individual is a task to identify people. Human recognition methods such as face, fingerprints, and iris generally require user’s cooperation, physical contact or close proximity. These methods are not able to recognize an individual at a distance therefore recognition using gait is relatively new biometric technique without these disadvantages.  Human identification using Gait is method to identify an individual by the way he walk or manner of moving on foot. Gait offers ability of distance recognition or at low resolution. In this paper, firstly binary silhouette of a walking person is detected from each frame. Secondly, feature from each frame is extracted using image processing operation. Here center of mass, step size length, and cycle length are talking as key feature. At last BPNN technique is used for training and testing purpose. Here all experiments are done on gait database and input video.

Comparative Study of Domain Driven Data Mining for It Infrastructure Suport

Abstract:   Information Technology (IT) is one of the most emerging fields in today’s Internet world.  IT can be defined in various ways, but is broadly considered to encompass the use of computers and telecommunications equipment to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data.  Infrastructure is the base for everything.  IT also has an infrastructure, which can be managed and maintained properly. For an organization’s Information Technology, Infrastructure Management (IM) is the management of essential operation components, such as policies, processes, equipment, data, human resources and external contacts. This paper, propose a methodology to manage the IT Infrastructure in a better way.  In the proposed methodology uses the tree-structure based architecture to manage the infrastructure with less manual power. To maintain such services, we have to set up an infrastructure and also provide essential steps to maintain and manage those kinds of services.  This kind of management is termed as IT Infrastructure Management Services.  While the user wants to use this kind of IT Services, the infrastructure paves way for this by providing proper responses for the requests made by the user.  These responses are provided by the IT resource persons who are managing and maintaining the services. The proposed methodology deals with this by undertaking the requests from the user and providing proper responses for the requests.  The response is provided by analyzing the requests and then redirecting the requests to the resource person who are considering that kind of request.  Thus the proposed methodology provides proper services for the user by managing the work flow in the IT Infrastructure. This paper also compared with the other methods in the domain driven data mining area, to ensure that the proposed method is more efficient in terms of SLA service level agreement and methodology when compared to other methods.

Paper Title:

A Dynamic Priority Based Arbitration Algorithm

Abstract:   Today’s electronic industry consists of chips with multimillion gates. This new level of integration on a single chip is called the System on Chip (SoC) design. In an SoC, on-chip interconnection networks are mostly implemented using buses. The performance of the SoC design heavily depends upon the efficiency of its bus structure. The bus used in the SoC platform requires an arbitration process since multiple components connected to it can act as masters and hence initiate a transaction. As the number of system components in SoC design increases, it becomes that an efficient arbiter is one of the most critical factors for high system performance. This paper deals with an Advanced High-performance Bus (AHB) arbiter with a dynamic arbitration mechanism.

Digital PI Controller Using Anti-Wind-Up Mechanism for A Speed Controlled Electric Drive System

Abstract:   This paper discusses the implementation of Digital PI Controller Using Anti Wind-Up Mechanism For A Speed Controlled Electric Drive System. To eliminate the system zeros relocated proportional integral controller is implemented. Which in turn reduces the over shoots. The torque is not limited, inspite of the use of relocated proportional integral controller. The motor windings get damaged, if the torque reaches higher values. In order to limit this torque, we introduce a torque limiter, which limits the torque value to the permissible limits. Due to limited torque, over shoots are produced for large inputs. To eliminate these overshoots, with limited torque, we implement the anti-windup mechanism. The scheme is implemented in MATLAB and from the obtained results its possible use and limitations are studied for torque limits varying from +3000 to +7000 N-m.

Paper Title:

Scalar Multiplication Algorithms of Elliptic Curve Cryptography over GF (2m)

Abstract:   Since the inception of elliptic curve cryptography by Koblitz [1] and Miller [2] for implementing public-key protocols as the Diffie-Hellman key agreement, elliptic curve cryptography has become one of the most researched area for providing one stop  reliable and secure solution in the field of cryptography. The ECC covers all relevant asymmetric cryptographic primitives like digital signature (ECDSA), key exchange and agreement protocols. Point multiplication serves as the basic building block in all ECC primitives and is the computationally most expensive operation and our analysis revolves around this concept. This paper gives an introduction to Elliptic Curve Cryptography and deals with evaluation of fast scalar multiplication with parallelization of field operation and point addition/multiplication. Elliptic curve cryptography offers best optimized solution with minimum resources like Low memory, High Throughput, low power consumption and minimum key length for the same level of security as compared to its counterpart like RSA, DSA etc. in public key cryptography domain. The work is based on the extensive research work done by Julio Lopez, Ricardo Dahab, Montgomery and other pioneer scientists and academicians in the field of elliptic curve cryptography. Given the importance of Scalar multiplication , we  focused ourselves on the Fast Multiplication on Elliptic Curves over finite Binary field GF(2m) without Pre-computation whose background is set by Julio Lopez et al. in [1], because the finite field operations can be implemented very efficiently in hardware and software.

On-Chip High Speed Optical Interconnect with RLCG Electrical Interconnect: Challenges and Dimensions

Abstract:   Intrachip optical interconnects(OIs) have the pote-ntial to outperform electrical wires and to ultimately solve the communication bottleneck in high-performance integrated circuits. Performance targets and critical directions for Ics progress are yet to be fully explored. In this paper, the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) is used as a reference to explore the requirements that silicon-based Ics must satisfy to successfully outperform copper electrical interconnects (IEs). Consiering the state-of-art devices, these requirements are extended to specific IC components.

Modified Version of Playfair Cipher Using   Linear Feedback Shift Register and Transpose Matrix Concept

Abstract:   In this paper we are presenting a new technique for secure transmission of message by modified version of playfair cipher combining with random number generator and transpose of matrix concept. To develop such method of encryption technique we have used one of the simplest methods of random number generator called Linear Feedback Shift Register and Transpose Matrix concept has been used. The previous playfair cipher method is based on polyalphabetic cipher which is relatively easy to break because it leaves much of loop hole and a small hundreds of letters of cipher text are sufficient. Here we are generating random number sequences and placing it into 6X6 matrix. Then finding the transpose of it and  mapping it to secret key of playfair cipher method. Corresponding number s will be transmitted to the receiver instead of alphabetic numeric key. This method increases security of the transmitted key over unsecured transmission media.
