1. Natural materials used for an eco-friendly interiors-jute crafts

India has large resources of natural fibers such as Banana, Sisal, Korai grass, Talipot, Palm leaf, Coconut, Pineapple, Golden grass, Jute, and Sabai among others. In the past, trade of the village folK depended on harvesting fibers grown in their villages. They spun or twisted yarn into ropes and sold them in villages or town markets. However with time, the emphasis was shifted to cotton and then during the post-independent era, silk and -jute became the new wonder fibers. jute is long, soft, and shiny it is one of nature’s strongest vegetable fibers. The fibers are also woven into curtains, chair coverings, carpets, area rugs, hessian cloth, and backing for linoleum. The main objective is to make jute fiber from natural materials. To make jute roped room dividers, doors, and windows with supporting cane. Cane boxes were custom built with evenly spaced rope sized holes drilled through the top and bottom. Precut sections of rope were strung through the top and tied off at the bottom, allowing for the interior knot to hold the rope in place and taut. Jute rope can be the key to the design. Most of the women who belong to the socio-economically backward sections of the society are engaged in natural fiber weaving to produce objects for daily use. It is one of the cheapest and the strongest of all-natural fibers and is considered as fiber of the future. It has no adverse effect on the human body and Mother Nature as a whole.

2. Recreating the traditional Kashmiri arts in contemporary interiors with sustainability

Apart from the scenic beauty of Kashmir, it is also renowned for its carpets weaving. It is a matter of pride for India Legacy. The weaving skills have been passed down by fathers to their sons, who have built upon those and in turn, handed them down to their offspring as a closely guarded family secret. A quality Kashmiri new carpet must be handmade or maybe palm knotted by 100% pure made of wool or maybe 100 % pure man-made fiber. This handicraft is unique in terms of design, cost, and quality of products. The study focuses on contemporary challenges and thereby providing suitable suggestions in order to make this handicraft more sustainable in the future. This craft is expensive, time taking, and required skilled weavers to do it. The motifs, patterns, and colors used in this art are unique apart from the weaving patterns. In the contemporary world this art cannot be applicable in its original form at every interior space. So, recreating carpets, wallpapers, fabrics used in furnishing of interiors with the motif patterns, and colors used in this could make this art sustainable. This can be the best way to add the history and memory of ancient people.

3. IoT based Electrical Power distribution through Telegram Bot and Web Cloud

The convenience of distributing electrical power and monitoring the load in homes, offices, as well as industries is very important. This enables the periodic and easy monitoring of changes or disturbances that occur in a load globally. This project monitors and controls the Electrical Power distribution system through a Telegram Bot and web cloud (Thingspeak.com). The Telegram Bot, which is available on Telegram, a social media application, is used to send commands to the electrical loads and also receive feedback in the form of a voltage (V), current (I), and Power (P) parameters. Meanwhile, the Web cloud (Thingspeak.com) is used to display the parameters in graphical or numerical form. Furthermore, the "peak to peak" method produces accurate voltage and current measurements using the ZMPT101B and ACS712 sensors. The result showed that the sensor readings are carried out alternately using a Multiplexer (Mux), to provide flexibility for another additional sensor. Therefore, the load control system is equipped with a TPR (Thyristor Power Regulator) circuit to regulate the amount of power.

5. Portable IoT based health monitoring system

In present times, the number of patients is increasing rapidly. There are many health management systems and the systems are lacking in one or other features. One of the major issues is that not all patients are treated with utmost care which can sometimes be dangerous in case of emergency or critical patients and common people cannot be able to afford the basic health monitoring system. The lack of communication between patients and the hospital staff might be there because of the patient’s health conditions, effects of medication, because they have an ongoing disability. Existing systems are digital but they aren't portable, which creates a vast problem and communication gap between hospital staff and patients. This motivates us to solve the aforementioned problems in the existing system using sensors which solve the problem of portable devices for measuring the patient health parameters and send the readings to the cloud database, these reading can be used by the doctor during patient diagnosis as the history is saved in the cloud . The proposed health management system will solve the problems related to real-time monitoring of patient’s conditions without being connected to the bed in the hospital all the time as it is simple to implement, use and cost effective.

8. An introduction to context-aware security and User Entity Behavior Analytics

A context aware system is recognized as a "system which uses any context information previous to, or in the duration of, service stipulations", whereas the main goal of this system is to identify any suspicious activity done by the users. The mobility feature of most computing and personal devices have made the 'context of the user' an important aspect of the system. Nowadays with the ever-increasing digitization of the workplace, employees are using their personal devices along with the organization resources provided to them. Context Aware security systems vary from conventional systems, as they provide unique characteristics such as name, geolocation, time of day or type of endpoint system to boost information security decisions. Combine this with a model that notifies and alienates any abnormal activity by the user, we have a strong security measure against harmful cyber activities such as unauthorized end users accessing confidential data, preventing users to download sensitive data onto external devices, and so on. Context-aware security systems address the usability challenge of accessibility and authentication, i.e., to use inferential information such as geolocation, identity, type of endpoint device, or time of day to enhance information security decisions. The use and importance of this system is increasing and therefore plays a huge role in prospective pervasive systems. The goal of this paper is to introduce the reader to the concept of context aware security and lay the groundwork that one needs to get accustomed to the topic, by extracting various topics from different research papers.

14. Removing the impurities chloride & alkalies from granulated blast furnace slag

The river sand and manufactured sand forms by the crushed rocks in millions of years. Nowadays, the reduction of river sand and manufactured sand is too fast in our environment because of our rapid construction world. So the GBFS (Granulated Blast Furnace Slag) is used at the place of river sand and manufactured sand but the presence of alkali and chloride in GBFS causes different problems like corrosion in reinforcement, react with external agents, high heat generated during the heat of hydration process and less durability. In this project, the foam separation method is adopted for removing the presence of alkali from GBFS (Granulated Blast Furnace Slag) and balance the pH value of crushed slag just like river sand and manufactured sand. The alkali and chloride remove from crushed slag in the form of bubbles and floats over the surface. The pH value balanced like river sand and manufactured sand. By using the foam separation method, 99% of alkali removed from GBFS (Granulated Blast Furnace Slag). The pH value of GBFS is balanced as equal to the river sand which is approx 7.00. The external effect of rainwater and chemical attacks are protected by removing the alkali from GBFS (Granulated Blast Furnace Slag). The total weight of construction also reduces because of the less value of bulk density of slag i.e. 1200kg/m³. After this method N-A-S-H OR C-A-S-H gel substituted by the C-S-H gel which is the same as well as river sand mix concrete. Also, protect our forest soil and area which places dumped by the Slag and its harmful to the soil nutrients and also for ecosystem.

15. Autonomous Railway Track Crack Detection and Accident Prevention System

Train derailment is a predominant issue that needs to be solved, the major cause of the derailment is due to cracks and bridges on the track. To overcome this problem we have proposed an autonomous system (Robot) that uses an ultrasonic sensor with a range of 30 cm primarily based on distance measurement and density sensor to detect deeper cracks, the sensor is used to detect cracks present on the railway track by sending ultrasonic waves. As soon as the crack is detected the GPS Sensor is used to find out the latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates of the area where the crack is detected. The detected crack along with the exact location is sent to a nearby railway station using a GSM module. These data are then sent to the cloud server which is then analysed and compared with the threshold and the cracks can be rectified on the exact location of the damage. The proposed self-governing system is a robot along with wheels and motors which are controlled by a motor driver. Here we are using an Arduino Uno Microcontroller. These sensors and modules are integrated with this Arduino UNO board. The board is uploaded with a program using the Arduino IDE to carry out the crack detection function. This board takes readings from the ultrasonic sensor and these readings are continuously stored in the cloud for analysis and it accordingly communicates with the other module to effectively detect cracks beneath the surface of the tracks and on the surface.

16. Evaluation of pectin based edible coating impregnated with mango leaf extract to reduce the post-harvest losses of tomato

The edible coating is any type of material used for enrobing, coating, or wrapping various food to extend the shelf life of the products and also to protect the fruits from microbial contamination. Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) is a highly perishable product and it gets spoiled quickly due to various post-harvest conditions, so considering these facts our research work was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of pectin based edible coating impregnated with Mango leaf extract on the Physicochemical parameters of the produce. The present work was carried out by preparing an edible coating solution which consists of pectin (5%), glycerol (1%), Mango leaf extract (2%) and the fresh Tomato were immersed into the edible coating solution and stored under room temperature. The fruit sample was then divided into two slots T1(uncoated samples) and T2(coated samples). Both coated and uncoated tomato samples were stored under ambient temperature(30℃). The effect of pectin based edible coating impregnated with Mango leaf extract on physicochemical properties of the tomatoes were studied and recorded. A comparison was made on the physicochemical properties of the both uncoated and coated samples and results were tabulated. With the obtained results it was concluded that the prepared edible coating solution protected the sample from deterioration when compared with the uncoated samples and the shelf life of coated sample was extended to 15 days under ambient temperature.

18. An experimental study on strength and self healing characteristics of bacterial concrete

Concrete is the most commonly used building material which is recyclable. It is strong, durable, locally available and versatile. It is capable to resist the compressive load to a limit but if the load applied on the concrete is more than their limit but if the load applied on the concrete is more than their limit of resisting load, it causes the strength reduction of concrete by producing the cracks in concrete and the treatment of cracks is very expensive. Cracks in concrete affects the serviceability limit of concrete. The ingress of moisture and other harmful chemicals into the concrete may result in decrement of strength and life. Micro-cracks are the main cause to structural failure. One way to circumvent costly manual maintenance and repair is to incorporate an autonomous self -healing mechanism in concrete. One such an alternative repair mechanism is currently being studied, i.e. a novel technique based on the application of biomineralization of bacteria in concrete. The applicability of specifically calcite mineral precipitating bacteria for concrete repair and plugging of pores and cracks in concrete has been recently investigated and studies on the possibility of using specific bacteria as a sustainable and concrete-embedded self-healing agent was studied and results from ongoing studies are discussed. Synthetic polymers such as epoxy treatment etc. are currently being used for repair of concrete are harmful to the environment, hence the use of a biological repair technique in concrete is focused. Recently, it is found that microbial mineral precipitation resulting from metabolic activities of favourable microorganisms in concrete improved the overall behaviour of concrete. Hence in this paper define the bacterial concrete, its classification and types of bacteria, chemical process to fix the crack by bacteria, advantages and dis- advantages and possibilities of application of MICP (Microorganism used for Calcium Carbonate Precipitation in Concrete).The different strengths of Normal concrete and concrete with different concentrations of Bacteria Bacillus spp were used and tests were conducted and compared.

19. Automotive control system using CAN protocol

Most of the accidents occur because of alcoholic people and the failure of braking systems. So this paper describes a driver's alcohol detection system based on breath sample testing and automatic control of the braking system to avoid accidents. When driver starts the ignition system, the sensor measures the concentration of alcohol into its breath and switches off the ignition system. This system is also able to control the accidents that occur due to the unconsciousness of the driver, uncontrollable speed of the vehicle, and manual operation of the braking system by applying automatic breakthrough electronics devices to minimize the accident problems. When the vehicle gets closer to any object, automatically brakes will be applied. This system helps in achieving effective communication between transmitter and receiver modules using the CAN protocol. The protocol was developed aiming at automotive application switch sensors to monitor the parameters and visualize them to the vehicle driver through an LCD display. The human drivers check the parameters in the vehicle on the LCD screen at the same time of driving and control over the vehicle.

24. Investing on common stocks

ABSTRACT: Stock Exchange is a critical aspect of a financial market. Shares are purchased and sold on stock exchanges. Common stock is security which represents ownership of an organization. Holders of Common stock choose the Directors and have the right to vote on company policies. Investing stock requires a close review of the financial reports to assess the true valuation of the product. Generally, this is done by examining the profit and loss account, balance sheet, and cash flow statement of the company. A simpler method to identify out about the performance of the company is to look at its financial ratios, most of which are available in this report. Although speculating is equivalent to gambling, it is not quite the same when speculators seek to make an appropriate decision regarding the future of their companies. These traders are purchasing shares with the expectation that they will only be owned for a limited amount of time before selling. Ratio analysis is important for investment decisions. It not only helps to learn how the business performed. Also, makes it easier for investors to compare the right investing option with firms in the same sector. The philosophy of diversification is one of the main principles of fund management which basically involves avoiding placing all the eggs in one basket. Investors should never have fewer than 25% or more than 75% of the assets in common stocks. A key part of value investing is making sure the assets have a margin of protection. How large a margin of safety is considered depends on a variety of variables, including market conditions, risk tolerance, and also the company's fundamental prospects. The thinner margin of safety might be accepted in special situations. Decide what you intend to do with your portfolio, and stick to it. Choose an area you're involved in, and discover the news and events that drive it every day. Identify the number of businesses or firms that dominate the market.

28. Data and key encapsulation for the smart grid using improved AES and difference expansion algorithm

Smart Grid (SG) is an advanced electrical power grid. SG collects the user’s smart meter data over the public network. After that, based on the data, generate the bills, and predict the electricity demand. The data contains sensitive information about users. Thus, the privacy of the users is required for better assessment. To preserve the privacy of the user, symmetric cryptography algorithms are used. In the symmetric algorithm, the same key is required for encryption/decryption purposes. Thus, the key is communicated to the receiver with the encrypted data. Thus, it is prone to eavesdropping and tampering attacks. Therefore, in this paper, we have designed data and key encapsulation algorithm that secure the data as well as the key. We have used the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm for data security and difference expansion algorithm for key security. Further, to reduce the encryption time of data encryption, software optimization algorithms used. Next, the encrypted data bits read, and a difference expansion algorithm is applied on it to hide the key bits in the encrypted data. The advantage of the difference expansion algorithm is that the original encrypted data bits recover with key bits extraction. The experimental results show that the data and key encapsulation takes less execution time, provide better security as compared to the existing algorithm.

29. Analysis and assessment of sewage water treatment plant by using PLC

Sewage water consists of Agricultural, industrial, and human wastes. It is mandatory to remove organic material by the process of sewage water treatment. The sewage treatment plant involves physical, biological treatment stages. An important objective of municipal and industrial sewage wastewater treatment is to separate pollutants, remove toxic materials, neutralize coarse particles, and destroy pathogens such that the quality of discharged water is more improved to meet the allowable level of water to be discharged into water bodies or for cultivated land. The target of secondary treatment is that the further treatment of the effluent from primary treatment to get rid of the residual organics and suspended solids. The main objective of wastewater treatment is to get rid of as considerably of the suspended solids as possible before the remaining water, called effluent, is discharged back to the environment. To avoid wastage of water by recycling water discharged from companies, homes, businesses, and industries and reduce pollution, to be used in the agricultural sector and domestic purpose.

30. Smart garbage monitoring system using IoT

A big challenge is urban cities is the garbage collection process. The garbage collecting authority or the municipal corporation peoples in the traditional waste management system doesn’t know about the level of garbage in the dustbin, if the dust bins get full by garbage then it gets overflowed as well as spelled out from the dustbin leading to an unhygienic condition in cities. Even if the dust bin is overloaded by garbage peoples throws the garbage on that dustbin. Because of that overflowed dustbin and the spelled garbage, bad smell arises also it leads to unhygienic conditions in many cities. Sometimes due to unclean dustbins, some toxic gases may produce and which will support to air pollution. Also, some harmful diseases may spread. It is very bad to look at the city. Due to which unhygienic condition occurs. The use of traditional system result in inefficient and time and money spending systems. So the concept of the Smart Garbage Monitoring System is implemented in cities. Where the rate of production of garbage or waste is high but efforts put to control the garbage management are very less. In order to overcome this many issues stated above smart garbage monitoring system using IoT will help.

32. Study on the impact of COVID-19 on public transport ridership

India's public transport systems are among most heavily used in the world. Public transport is the primary mode of road transport for most of the citizens of India. This Covid-19 crisis has crippled all sectors of the economy across the world. One of the worst affected sector by this pandemic is public transport. During the lockdown, the bus services, metro, trains as well as flights were completely stopped by the Government of India. Nobody was allowed to travel even in private vehicles as it would have increased the risk of infection until and unless it was very important. Now, since the public transport operators are allowed to resume their services, they are focussing on how to overcome the losses they have met during this lockdown period. This lockdown has hit them seriously as people are concerned about their safety and moving out and travelling. This paper represents how much loss the public transport sector has faced during lockdown due to corona virus disease-2019 and what measures should public transport operators has to take to recover their loss.

33. Modern algorithm of neural networks

This paper deals with researches and literature reviews on Deep Neural Network. In the area of biometrics, identification, access- control, enforcement, digital identification, surveillance devices and face recognition (FR), defining the technique of human beings using facial imaging, is a multitude of hands-on applications. Coevolutionary neural networks (Cov-Nets) have proved to be efficient for FR, a type of deep networks. Any pre-processing procedures, such as sampling, must be taken for real-time systems prior to use in Cov-Nets. However, full images (all pixel values) are also transferred to Cov-Nets as input and all steps are performed by the network (feature collection, function filtering, training). That's why Cov-Nets is always difficult and time-consuming to introduce. Cov-Nets are at a rising level, with very little precision, but they have a high potential reach. This paper offers a new perspective on the use of a deep neural network for facial recognition. A new approach is being developed in this paper. In this approach, facial features that are extracted are provided as input instead of raw pixel values. This decreases the complexity and gives the Yale data set quality of 97.05 percent.
