Colour Object Tracking On Embedded Platform Using Open CV

Abstract:  Object tracking in real time is one of the most important topics in the field of computer Vision. Detection and tracking of moving objects in the video scenes is the first relevant step in the information extraction in many computer vision applications. This idea can be used for the surveillance purpose, video annotation, traffic monitoring, human-computer interaction, intelligent transportation, and robotics and also in the field of medical. In this paper, we are discussing color object tracking using OpenCV software on Eclipse platform and the implementation of the tracking system on the Pandaboard ES. CAMShift algorithm is used for object tracking which is based on Meanshift algorithm. The proposed approach is demonstrated for real-time multiple object tracking system.

Paper Title:

Design and Simulation of Conventional and Intelligent Controllers for Temperature Control Of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger System

Abstract:   Heat exchanger system is widely used in chemical plants because it can sustain wide range of temperature and pressure. The main purpose of a heat exchanger system is to transfer heat from a hot fluid to a cooler fluid, so temperature control of outlet fluid is of prime importance. The designed controllers will regulate the temperature of the outgoing fluid to a desired set point in the shortest possible time irrespective of load and process disturbances, equipment saturation and nonlinearity. To control the temperature of outlet fluid of the heat exchanger system, a conventional P,PI and PID controller can be used.  Due to nonlinear nature, shell and tube heat exchanger system is hard to model and control using conventional methods. The intelligent controllers are effective for nonlinear processes. In this paper, conventional P,PI,PID and IMC based PID controllers are designed and simulation results are presented and discussed. From the results it is observed that IMC based PID controller gives better results when compared to other controllers. To improve the performance the fuzzy controller and model based neuro controllers (inverse and internal model controllers) are designed and simulated. To develop model based neuro controllers forward and inverse neuro model are developed, trained and validated. Simulation studies are carried out with fuzzy logic controller and model based neuro controllers  for servo and regulatory problems. The results are presented and discussed. It is observed that ,fuzzy logic controller and IMC based PID controllers are giving better results when compared to conventional PID controller and model based neuro controllers.

An Enhanced K Means Clustering using Improved Hopfield Artificial Neural Network and Genetic Algorithm

Abstract:  Due to the increase in the quantity of data across the world, it turns out to be very complex task for analyzing those data. Categorize those data into remarkable collection is one of the common forms of understanding and learning.  This leads to the requirement for better data mining technique. These facilities are provided by a standard data mining technique called Clustering. The key intention of this technique is to categorize a dataset into a set of clusters that contains similar data items, as computed by some distance function. One of the widely used clustering techniques is K-Means clustering. K-Means clustering is very simple and effective for clustering. But, the main disadvantage of this technique is when the large dataset is used for clustering. To overcome this difficulty, various researchers focus on suggesting better alteration in K-Means clustering. This paper provides a new technique to modify K-Means clustering which can result in better performance.  For initialization, this paper uses an improved version of Hopfield Artificial Neural Network (HANN) algorithm. Also, the Genetic Algorithm (GA) is in combined with K-Means algorithm. The experimental result indicates that the proposed K-Means clustering algorithm results in better clustering result.

Peer to Peer Scheduling in PBS and Implementing Multi-Level Feedback Queues

Abstract:   Grid computing is the federation of pooling resources in order to solve various large problems. Grid computing has gained remarkable importance in the last decade as the resource requirements for large applications increased drastically. Scheduling is the main issue in grid computing and it is the process of making scheduling decisions over multiple grid resources. In this paper we proposed a approach for Portable Batch System (PBS) to implement peer to peer scheduling. This mainly defines that a site can have multiple PBS Pro cluster, each cluster has its server, scheduler and one or more execution systems. This paper focuses on designing of new architecture for Portable Batch System to implement Peer to Peer scheduling system. In this research of Peer to Peer scheduling in PBS we proposed new approach for selecting the jobs from the job pool through ready queue data structure mechanism and we proposed Grid scheduling algorithm Multi Level Feedback Queues Scheduling algorithm for the execution of jobs.

BER Analysis of FSK Transceiver for Cognitive Radio Applications

Abstract:   In modern wireless communication, the radio spectrum is the most vital resource for a mobile operator. Most of the prime spectrums (licensed bands) are already allocated for license users for exclusive use. Few, unlicensed bands are left open for unlicensed users. Cognitive radios (CR) offer a solution to this spectrum scarcity problem and the demand for reliable high data rate transmission had been increased significantly these days, which leads the way to modulation techniques.The main objective of this paper is designing and analyzing of   FSK Transceiver using Lab-VIEW and to measure the graphical representation of BER VsEb/No in the presence of Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) of digital modulation schemes. FSK is chosen as modulation scheme for design of CR system is widely used for data transmission applications over band pass channels such as Cordless and paging systems, Telephone-line modems, Caller ID, Microcomputers, Audio cassettes, Radio control etc. FSK Transceiver is used to control the power for CR system. It is easy to implement and widely used for the wireless communication in VHF and UHF Frequency bands giving very good BER with high data rates.

Web Data Extraction Using Tree Structure Algorithms – A Comparison

Abstract:    Nowadays, Web pages provide a large amount of structured data, which is required by many advanced applications. This data can be searched through their Web query interfaces. The retrieved information is also called ‘deep or hidden data’. The deep data is enwrapped in Web pages in the form of data records. These special Web pages are generated dynamically and presented to users in the form of HTML documents along with other content. These webpages can be a virtual gold mine of information for business, if mined effectively. Web Data Extraction systems or web wrappers are software applications for the purpose of extracting information from Web sources like Web pages. A Web Data Extraction system usually interacts with a Web source and extracts data stored in it. The extracted data is converted into the most convenient structured format and stored for further usage. This paper deals with the development of such a wrapper, which takes search engine result pages as input and converts them into structured format. Secondly, this paper proposes a new algorithm called Improved Tree Matching algorithm, which in turn, is based on the efficient Simple Tree Matching (STM) algorithm.  Towards the end of this work, there is given a comparison with existing works.  Experimental results show that this approach can extract web data with lower complexity compared to other existing approaches.s.

Effect of High Voltage on the Resistance of Aloe Vera Leaves

Abstract:   Every plant has a property to react to internal as well as external stimuli. There are many electromagnetic radiations present in environment to which plants react such as electrical fields, magnetic fields, and electromagnetic (EM) fields. A large number of products and applications in our day to day life make use of various forms of electromagnetic energy. One such form of energy is high voltage and high frequencies EM waves. High voltage means electrical energy at voltages which is sufficient to cause harm or death upon living things. The electromagnetic field from high power transmission lines affects the growth of plants. The growth and health status of plants can be accessed from the electrical properties such as resistance or impedance of its leaves. In this paper, the effect of high voltage on Aloe Vera leaves has been reported. Aloe Vera plant is chosen due to its various properties and uses in dermatology. Investigations were carried out to study the effect of high voltage on the resistance of the Aloe Vera leaves. The analysis of the results showed considerable amount of change in the resistance of the leaves due to high voltage and high frequencies.

Optimization of CMOS 8-bit Counter using SLA and Clock Gating Technique

Abstract:    The development of digital integrated circuits is challenged by higher power consumption. Scaling helps to improves transistor density, increase speed and frequency of operation and hence higher performance. As voltages scale downward with the geometries threshold voltages must also decrease to gain the performance advantages of the new technology but leakage current increases exponentially. Power consumption has a static component coming from the leakage of inactive devices and a dynamic component coming from the switching of active devices. It has been proved that clock signal consumes a high dynamic power as the clock net has one of the highest switching densities. The clock signal keeps changing its state in certain time points according to its frequency even if the logic output doesn’t change “hold mode”. Switching power dissipation may eventually dominate total power consumption in sub micron technology. Glitches or unwanted transitions consume about 20%-70% of Dynamic Power and needs to be eliminated. Therefore, the main aim of this thesis work is to reduce power consumption due to both glitches and Clock switching. In this thesis work, the novel approaches are proposed for reducing dynamic power with minimum possible power consumption and delay trade off. A novel approach for reducing dynamic power i.e. SLA (State Look Ahead) and Clock Gating has been proposed. Proposed parallel counter shows 66.04% power improvement as compared to Kakarountas counter and 54.3% power reduction as compared to Alioto’s counter. Abdel’s counter with proposed parallel counter shows 29.9% power reduction. Maximum operating frequency is also improved in proposed parallel counter. By using pass transistors drawback of large area in Abdel’s counter is optimized in proposed circuit. So the proposed parallel 8-bit counter is optimized in terms of speed, power and area as compared to previous counter designs. Use of Pass Transistor is helpful in reducing or eliminating the glitches from circuit. Clock Switching power reduction designs are also proposed which are more power efficient and have less delay as compared to existing techniques.

Paper Title:

Design of Efficient Transport Protocol for Multimedia through Wireless Networks

Abstract:  Wireless Internet enables wireless connectivity to the Internet via radio waves. The rapid growth of wireless Internet, and broad band networking infrastructures, such as 3G and 3.5G, WLAN and WLAN-mesh and WiMAX, makes multimedia (audio and video) information available to us anytime, anywhere, on any device. The versatility of wireless internet has consumers demanding the service at an increasing rate. Therefore it is important to develop an efficient rate control protocol for the transmission of multimedia data through wireless networks which reduces all types of losses by satisfying multimedia constraints such as delay jitter, and to achieve a high throughput. In this approach, we make use of adaptive end to end loss differentiation algorithm for differentiating congestion losses from wireless losses and a function to differentiate burst wireless losses from transient wireless losses. Loss proportion increase and loss proportion decrease (PIPD) algorithm will be used for defining burst period in order to increase efficiency. Also evaluation will be performed by taking different decision factors into consideration and thus choose a suitable decision factor for reducing losses. The proposed approach can achieve high throughput, low losses, and good energy efficiency.

Paper Title:

A New Approach To Analyse Qosparameters In Cognitive Radio

Abstract:   Cognitive radio is a technology for wireless communication in which either a network or a wireless node changes its transmission or reception parameters to communicate efficiently avoiding interference with licensed or unlicensed users. The spectrum sharing network consists of a pair of primary users (PUs) and a pair of cognitive users (CRs).The pair of PUs establishes a wireless link as the PU link. The PU link and CR link utilize spectrum simultaneously with different priorities. The PU link has a higher priority to utilize spectrum with respect to the CR link. The proposed work focusses on different spectrum allocation techniques for the secondary users, based on Genetic Algorithms and an analysis of the performance of these techniques with an assumption that the radio environment has already been sensed and the QoS requirements for the application have been specified either by the sensed radio environment or by the secondary user itself. The proposed work focusses towards the technique that not only work on the QoS of cognitive radio but also covers all the parameters for efficient communication like power and bandwidth. When the PU link utilizes spectrum, a desired quality of service (QoS) is to be assured and the CR utilizes spectrum with an opportunistic power scale under this constraint, assuring the desired QoS on the PU link. To compute an optimal opportunistic power scale for the CR link, a fuzzy-based opportunistic power control strategy is proposed based on the Mamdani fuzzy control model using four input variables: QoS,RSSI, bandwidth as well as noise delay with the opportunistic power management along with bandwidth allocation.

Semi Blind Restoration of Diversified Field Images

Abstract:    This paper is concerned with critical performance analysis of spatial linear restoration techniques for still images from various fields (Medical, Natural and Arial images).The performances of the linear restoration techniques are provided with possible combination of various additive noises and images from diversified fields. Efficiency of linear restoration techniques according to difference distortion and correlation distortion metrics is computed. Tests performed on monochrome images, with various synthetic and real-life degradations, without and with noise, in single frame scenarios, showed good results, both in subjective terms and in terms of the increase of signal to noise ratio (ISNR) measure. The comparison of the present approach with previous individual methods in terms of mean square error, peak signal-to-noise ratio, and normalized absolute error is also provided. In comparisons with other state of art methods, our approach yields better to optimization, and shows to be applicable to a much wider range of noises. We discuss how experimental results are useful to guide to select the effective combination.

Paper Title:

ARM Based Stair Climbing Robot Controlling Through DTMF Technology

Abstract: In today’s technology development, mobile robotics plays a vital role in many aspects because they are used to operate in hazardous and urban environments, for surveillance as well as military operations. Some of the mobile robots are designed to operate only on natural terrains, but some other also for rough terrains and artificial environments including stairways. In the age of ubiquitous systems it is necessary to be able to monitor the robots from everywhere. Although many methods to remotely control robots have been devised, the methods have the problems such as the need for special devices or software to control the robots. This paper suggests an advanced method for robotic control using the DTMF technology. Until recent years, the stair climbing robots are designed with vast hardware and robots are equipped with wheels to climb stairs or to move on a flat surface. The controlling mechanism has been advanced with the development of mobile robots. This paper addresses the design and implementation of DTMF controlled stair climbing robot. This climbing robot is operated with ARM7TDMI (LPC2148) controller. The mechanical design of the robot contains the roller chains instead of wheels and rubber blocks are attached to the roller chains to generate high friction with ground. Experimental trials showed that the implementation of the behavior control systems was successful.

Design & Analysis of Square Microstrip Patch Antenna

Abstract: This research aims at designing and analysis of Square Microstrip patch Antenna, Communication between humans was first by sound through voice. With the desire for slightly more distance communication came, devices such as drums, then, visual methods such as signal flags and smoke signals were used. These optical communication devices, of course, utilized the light portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. It has been only very recent in human history that the electromagnetic spectrum, outside the visible region, has been employed for communication, through the use of radio. One of humankind’s greatest natural resources is the electromagnetic spectrum and the antenna has been instrumental in harnessing this resource. This paper provides a detailed study of how to design and fabricate a probe-fed Square Microstrip Patch Antenna using IE3D software and study the effect of antenna dimensions Length (L), and substrate parameters relative Dielectric constant (ε_r), substrate thickness (t) on the Radiation parameters of Bandwidth and Beam-width. The proposed antenna is designed at the height of 1.59mm from the ground plane and this design is operated at 3.0GHz.

Failure Detection Using E-ARS in WMN

Abstract:  Wireless  Mesh  Networks  (WMNs)  consist  of  mesh  routers  and  mesh  clients for  their  lifetime,  multihop  wireless  mesh networks  (WMNs)  experience  frequent  link  failures  caused  by  channel  interference,  dynamic  obstacles, and/or applications’ bandwidth demands. Dynamic channel allocation for effective autonomous network reconfiguration system (E-ARS), by analyzing E-ARS, it shows that by using E-ARS alone it wont provide a sufficient result such as network quality, leader assigning problems etc, so in order improve the network performance we going to implement a new concept Breadth First Search Channel Assignment (BFS-CA) algorithm against with E-ARS so that it will multi radio configuration for mesh network and channel assignment problems. We demonstrate our solution’s through the evaluation of a prototype implementation in an IEEE 802.11 in ns2. We also report on an extensive evaluation via simulations. In a sample multi-radio scenario, our solution yields performance more gains compared E-ARS.

DDS Based Multi Channel Radar Waveform Generator

Abstract:  A radar waveform generator is designed and it is implemented by using directly digital modulation method based on DDS. It can generate arbitrary signals whose amplitude, frequency or phases are controlled by the description words given from an external computer. Accurate waveforms can be generated. We can generate waveforms digitally by using Direct digital synthesis technique. DDS principles of the technique are simple and widely applicable. Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) is a frequency synthesizer  which can generate arbitrary waveforms from a single, fixed-frequency reference clock. DDS Applications include:  function generators, modulators. Here in order to implement radar waveform generator along with DDS we need FPGA and microcontroller. In order to generate the waveform using DDS we need to store the hexadecimal data into the internal registers of DDS chip along with that we need some control signals which will be generated using FPGA . First from PC we need to send the hexadecimal data through serial port for that we need design a Graphical User Interface (GUI).In GUI we will enter the amplitude, phase and frequency of the waveform to be generated and then it has to covert it into particular hexadecimal data based on the formulas mentioned in the datasheet, then it has to send the data through serial port. Now, microcontroller has to receive the data from PC and then it has to send the data to the FPGA. FPGA has to receive that data, along with that it has to generate some control signals based on the control signals, received data will be send to the internal registers of DDS chip.

Motion Control of Wheeled Mobile Robots Using Fuzzy Logic

Abstract:   In this paper, we propose a fuzzy logic controller for the motion control of a wheeled mobile robot (WMR) in simulation environment. We address the problem of mobile robot tracking and formation control. The leader mobile robot is controlled to reach the desired position, and the follower mobile robot keep constant relative distance and constant angle to the leader robot. Algorithms  for  controlling  robot  formations  have  been inspired  by  biological  and  organizational  systems. Simulation is conducted in Matlab to investigate the performance of the proposed fuzzy controller.

A Circular Cache Layer Based Caching Algorithm in Wireless Sensor Network

Abstract:   This technique proposes Circular Cache Layer Based (CCLA) Algorithm to divide the load of query from single cluster head1. All sensor nodes are commonly resource constrained and have limited amount of energy .In wireless sensor networks, BS (Base Station) is generally set away from the target area like base research. In base research single CH transmits data directly to BS. Single CH(cluster head) there is heavy load on CH because CH  broadcast query to all nodes in cluster, receive data from nodes ,aggregate data, amplify signal and transmit to base station. So sensor nodes become dead after working as CH but in proposed technique there are two cluster heads CH1 and CH .CHs are not stationary means CHs changes within cluster according to available battery .CH2 is responsible for collecting data from sensor nodes, store this data and transmit to CH1 when required.CH2 contain data time bounded interval according to TTL (time to live) process CH1 transmit information to BS. This technique provides load balancing. In this research calculate average energy of CHs and number of time rounds in which sensor nodes become dead. Simulation results comparing with previous protocol prove that our new algorithm is able to extend the network lifetime observably.

KVM Based Virtualization for Low Cost Computing

Abstract:   In this paper, we propose a Virtual Remote environment to user over a LAN by using open source system and virtualization tools. Today’s Desktop processors offer great computation functionality, fast processing power and memory. The aim is to provide low cost computing using open source technology and various free remote desktop environments. We used free Terminal Server [1], [2] to provide desktop, remote desktop tools and KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) hypervisor [3], [4] to create and run virtual machines. Users can get a personalized OS (Operating System) which is the VM (Virtual Machine) running over a Local server. User gets an independent OS through the various graphical desktop sharing systems, which is platform independent. Complete resource utilization is possible because VMs run on Remote Server. As we are using open source OS and tools, this implementation becomes inexpensive. Some solutions like Oracle VM server for SPARC [5], CtrixXEN Desktop [6], and VM ware View [7], [8] are available but they are costly and proprietary. By using this method we can make use of very low configured system as a client system to access VM's desktop for best performance.

Predictive Location-Based QoS Routing with Admission Control in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks

Abstract:   This paper is aimed at identifying the issues and challenges involved in providing QoS in MANETs, overcoming these issues by using predictive location based QoS routing with admission control which are required to ensure high levels of QoS, improving bandwidth, throughput and minimizing packet loss rate, end to end delay, jitter, throughput QoS metrics. Distributed Admission Control Mechanism (DACME) applies on the valid route to check whether that route satisfies QoS or not if it satisfies QoS requirement then only route is selected otherwise rejected.The aim here is to improve peer to peer communication in wireless mobile ad hoc networks by identifying the location of mobile node using Predictive Location Based Routing Protocol (PLBRP) and Admission Control mechanism. This project can adapt to applications with bandwidth, delay and jitter constraints .This application proposes optimizations based on interactions between routing, and admission control layers which oer important performance improvements

Video Classification using SVM

Abstract: In today’s world, information is indispensable in each and every activity. Precise retrieval of information according to the user’s requirement is the dire need of the day. A Content Based Video Retrieval System, in a nutshell, aims at assisting a user to retrieve a video sequence target within a potentially large database. Content-based Video Retrieval Systems (CBVRS) are less common and is even now  a research area. There are no existing systems of CBVRS  in  use because of  various restrictions like video size, characteristics, high error rate etc. Search engines like Google etc use textual annotations to retrieve videos for the user which has very high error rate. Content based video retrieval  has lots of applications in varied areas like medical sciences, news broadcasting, advertizing, video archiving and will surely revolutionize the field of information technology. A consequence of the growing consumer demand for visual information is sophisticated technology that is needed for representing, modeling, indexing and retrieving multimedia data. In particular, we need robust techniques to index/retrieve and compress visual information. Therefore this system Video Classification using SVM will play an important role in information retrieval and information storage.

Combinatorial Auction for Grid Computing

Abstract:  Grid computing, emerging as a new paradigm for next-generation computing, enables the sharing, selection, and aggregation of geographically distributed heterogeneous resources for solving large-scale problems in science, engineering, and commerce. The resources in the Grid are heterogeneous and geographically distributed. The paper demonstrates the capability of economic-based systems for wide-area parallel and distributed computing by using auction-oriented approach. In this paper combinatorial auction  has been discussed. This  auction model allows biders to bid on various  attributes beyond the price .The overall utility of a deal for the buyer must consider a combination of the different attributes. This model has also been implemented. The auctioneer selects winners based on the price as well as on other attributes.

Comparative Study of Clustering Based Algorithm in Mobile Ad-Hoc Network

Abstract:  Today Energy efficiency is a critical issue in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) for increasing the lifetime of the individual nodes as well as the overall network. Mobile ad-hoc network has become a very important field of study for students and researchers owing to its wide application. In mobile ad-hoc network all nodes are responsible for routing and forwarding of packets, hence all nodes are required to act selflessly for proper functioning of mobile ad-hoc network. In the we present the study of low power clustering algorithm. In this paper present the survey of clustering algorithms in MANET. In particular, the algorithms under consideration are single hop representatives of the energy constrained ad hoc network. The emphasis is given mostly on the cluster formation principles and the cluster maintenance parameters of the algorithms. Simulation results are discussed to describe the eect of transmission range and the size of the network on the parameters like cluster density, frequency of reelection, frequency of cluster changes in the dynamic network. Partitioning the mobile nodes is a NP-hard problem. The lowest id, highest connectivity and weighted cluster algorithm to make it more intrusting.

Investigation of Transform Dependency in Speech Enhancement

Abstract:  Noise is an unwanted signal. One of the most common type of noise is a background noise which is always present. The paper presents speech enhancement scheme for suppression of  background noise. The objective of speech enhancement is to improve the perceptual aspect such as quality and intelligibility of the processed speech. The main objective of this paper is to investigate the use of different transforms for speech enhancement. Speech enhancement using wiener filtering approach is proposed and implemented using DFT, DCT and DWT thus showing the feasibility of utilization of the different transforms.

Probabilistic Neural Network Based Delineation of QRS-complexes in Single-Lead ECG using Slope Criterion

Abstract:    This paper presents the delineation of QRS-complexes in electrocardiogram using Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN) and Slope criteria. Before going to the step of delineation of QRS-complexes, first follow the step of detection of QRS-complexes. The results of detection rate of QRS-complexes are obtained is quite encouraging i.e. 99.23% using slope criteria and PNN. The delineation is process to determine the onset and offset of QRS-region. The delineation performance of the proposed algorithm is validated using referees annotations and the combined program median provided in the CSE multi-lead measurement library. The results of delineation are presented using BA- plots and they are found to be well within tolerance limits as specified by CSE working group.

Paper Title:

Spam Detection Using Baysian with Pattren Discovery

Abstract:  Text mining is nothing but the discovery of interesting knowledge in text documents. But there is a big challenging issue that how to guarantee the quality of discovered relevant features. And that are in the text documents for describing user preferences because of the large number of terms, patterns and noise. For text mining there are basically two types of approaches; one is term based approach and another is phrase based approach. But term based approach suffered with the problem of polysemy and synonymy. And phrase based approach suffered with low frequency occurrence. But phrase based approachs are better than the term based approachs. But pattern based approach is better than the term based and phrase based approach. The proposed method is an innovative and effective pattern discovery technique. This method includes two main processes pattern deploying and inner pattern evaluation. This paper presents an effective technique to improve the effectiveness of using and updating discovered patterns for finding relevant and interesting information. Using Baysian filtering algorithm and effective pattern Discovery technique we can detect the spam mails from the email dataset with good correctness of term.
