1. Study of Linear and Non-Linear Buckling Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Wall

RCC walls are used worldwide to resist loads due to gravity and earthquake. Many of the tall buildings had buckled during recent earthquakes due to poor design and construction practices. When the RCC structure is subjected to axial compressive loading it fails due to buckling. The objective of study is to predict the linear and non-linear buckling behaviour of RCC walls using the finite element model. This paper investigates the effect of various parameters that influence the behaviour of the wall. These parameters include; slenderness ratio, percentage of reinforcement. Different percentages of reinforcement with constant slenderness ratio for a wall is analysed through ANSYS 15.0.

2. An Optimized Classification of Human Cancer Disease for Gene Expression Data

Classification of cancer is determined the appropriate treatment and helps to determine the prognosis. The Existing System was presented to classify the human cancer diseases predicted on the gene expression profiles. The existing approach is initially, the Information Gain (IG) is utilized for feature selection and Genetic Algorithm (GA) is used for feature reduction. Finally the Genetic program is utilized for classifying the types of human cancer. However the existing approach has high computation time and required large amount of computational resource. To overcome this issue in this paper presented the Cuckoo Search (CS) optimization algorithm to optimize the threshold value of the features determined by the Information Gain (IG) and then Genetic programming (GP) is used for enhancing the performance of classifying the human cancer. The proposed cuckoo search approach is nature inspired behavior and breeding process of cuckoo bird’s optimization algorithm for generation of the global code book with one tuning parameter and it’s applicable for both linear and non linear problems. The performance of the proposed approach is evaluated in terms of Classification Accuracy, Specificity and Sensitivity.

4. A Novel Scheme for Separable and Reversible Data Hiding in Encrypted JPEG Image using Forward Correction Code

Among various digital image formats used in daily life, JPEG is the most popular .Therefore, reversible data hiding (RDH) in JPEG images is important and useful for many application such as archive management and image authentication. Reversible data hiding in encrypted images (RDH-EI) are developed most techniques for uncompressed images, this paper provides a separable reversible data hiding protocol for encrypted JPEG bitstreams. Here a JPEG encryption algorithm is first proposed, which enciphers an image to a smaller size and keeps the format compliant to JPEG decoder. After a content owner uploads the encrypted JPEG bitstream to a remote server, a data hider embeds an additional message into the encrypted JPEG bitstream without changing the bitstream size. On the recipient side, the original bitstream can be reconstructed losslessly using an iterative recovery algorithm based on the blockingartifact. Though message extraction and image recovery are separable, anyone who has the embedding key can extract the message from the marked encrypted copy. A random error is introduced to obtain the PSNR and error values of different JPEG images and make a comparative study. A forward error correction technique is used for controlling errors. Experimental results show that the proposed method outperforms a previous work in terms of separation capability, embedding capacity and security.

5. The Vellore Mutiny- 1806

Vellore Mutiny, outbreak against the British on July 10, 1806, by sepoys (Indian troops employed by the British) at Vellore (now in Tamil Nadu state, southern India). The incident began when the sepoys broke into the fort where the many sons and daughters of Tippu Sultan of Mysore and their families had been lodged since their surrender at Seringapatam (now Shrirangapattana) in 1799 during the fourth Mysore War.
The July 10 outbreak, though encouraged by the Mysore princes, was basically caused by resentment at new British regulations that ordered changes in headgear and shaving style and the prohibition of ornaments and caste marks for the Indian troops. Little effort was made by the British to reassure the men or listen to their grievances, which included the belief that the regulations were determined to the religious practices of both Hindus and Muslims. There were also complaints about the sepoys’ pay. About 130 British troops were killed in the initial assault, but the fort was recovered within hours by a relief force of British soldiers and sepoys under Colonel Robert Gillespie from nearby Arcot. Hundreds of mutineers were killed, either in the fighting or in subsequent executions by the British.
The affair alarmed the British because of its connection with the Mysore princes, who were thereupon removed to Calcutta (now Kolkata). Lord William Bentinck, the governor of Madras (now Chennai), and Sir John Cradock (later John Caradock, 1st Baron Howden), the commander in chief at Madras, were both recalled. It is believed, however, that the severity of punishments meted out by the British—which included tying some of those convicted of mutiny to the barrels of cannons and then firing them— deterred sepoys in southern India from joining the Indian Mutiny of 1857–58.

6. SeriNutrid- A Balanced Nutrient Diet for Silkworm (Bombyx mori L) Chawki Rearing

Silkworm Bombyx mori L is a highly sensitive lepidopteron insect and responds sharply to changes in the feed quality. In Silkworm rearing, Chawki is considered as one of the important stages from which a successful cocoon crop is ensured. Rearing of silkworm on SeriNutrid Semi-synthetic diet) containing balanced nutrition, during the chawki stage ensures a successful and economically viable cocoon crop. Chawki rearing with SeriNutrid also means hygienic rearing, avoiding loss of crop due to missing larvae & minimizing disease outbreak and reduction in feeding frequency. This hypothesis is tested by extensive trial in the field by promoting chawki (Cake- Mari) obtained by feeding larvae on SeriNutrid cake. Weight of cocoon per 100DFL recorded 3-5% more than leaf chawki rearing and showed better quality of the cocoon, bringing in 5-10% higher price compared to cocoon obtained from leaf fed chawki.

11. Video Based Face Detection Process

The project entitled “Movie Character Discovery” is used to identify movie characters in videos. Automatic face identification of characters in movies has drawn significant research interests and led to many interesting applications. It is a challenging problem due to the huge variation in the appearance of each character. Although existing methods demonstrate promising results in clean environment, the performances are limited in complex movie scenes due to the noises generated during the face tracking and face clustering process. In this paper we present two schemes of global face-name matching based framework for robust character identification. The contributions of this work include: Complex character changes are handled by simultaneously graph partition and graph matching. Beyond existing character identification approaches, we further perform an in-depth sensitivity analysis by introducing two types of simulated noises. The proposed schemes demonstrate state-of-the-art performance on movie character identification in various genres of movies.

16. Integrated Redevelopment of Foreshore Estate and Srinivasapuram

In Chennai there are constraints on the availability of unused land within the city limits, coupled with fast growing demand for built spaces and sky rocketing prices. On the other hand, that there are thousands of aging buildings which are dilapidated and under used blighted urban areas which have reached a stage where it is not possible to carry out structural repairs and rehabilitation as the same are not economically viable. Therefore, redevelopment has become a necessity as in time these areas become more dangerous and unfit for habitation. One such potential project is the Integrated Redevelopment of Foreshore Estate, where a large land parcel available for re-development, right on the shoreline. Foreshore Estate is an ideal location from where one could easily reach the most sought-after locations like Adyar(which is a large residential neighborhood in south Chennai with very high property values), Besant Nagar, R A Puram, Alwarpet and Mylapore(it is a cultural hub and neighborhood in the southern art of the city of Chennai .it is also known for its tree-lined avenue), MRC Nagar ( it is a commercial hub of the city which also include residential areas), as well as the best of the hotels in the city, besides critical facilities like the airport, sea port and railway station within 10 to 30 minutes. The idea is to develop a mix of high-end residential units, a fair amount of commercial space and also allot sufficient space for development of low-cost housing units, as the re-settlement of earlier tenements also has to be addressed. Tamilnadu Slum Clearance Board (TNSCB) and Tamilnadu Housing Board (TNHB) together hold 51.01 acres of land (23.5 and 27.51 acres respectively) in Srinivasapuram and Foreshore Estate area, facing the Marina Beach. Projected as the “Integrated Development in Foreshore Estate” the scheme envisions malls, luxury hotels and high-end residential complexes for private parties and senior Government officials and resettling the 3576 slums and 2000 housing board tenements.

20. Knuckle Finger Imager for Identification using Accurate Person Matching Score

A biometric system using finger knuckle patterns has recently drawn the interest of researchers worldwide. Compared with its hand counterparts, palm and knuckle parts has several unique merits. Knuckle print based biometric system is highly acceptable because these patterns do not disturb with injury and wound on the finger surface. However, geometrical and textural features have been used widely in most of the existing knuckle print recognition methods where an individual is verified by extraction of size, length, position and shape features. This paper presents a matching score scheme for personal recognition using novel inner knuckle print-based features i.e., knuckle distance based geometrical features, and texture features. The proposed method is tested on our in-house Hand database (720 images) collected over a span of 3 months. Finally, the test and training images are compared in terms of using fusion and decision algorithm.

28. Secured Data Access in Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is an emerging computing paradigm in which resources of the computing infrastructure are provided as services over the Internet. This paper proposed some services for data security and access control when users outsource sensitive data for sharing on cloud servers. This paper addresses this challenging open issue by, on one hand, defining and enforcing access policies based on data attributes, and, on the other hand, allowing the data owner to delegate most of the computation tasks involved in fine grained data access control to untrusted cloud servers without disclosing the underlying data contents. Our proposed scheme enables the data owner to delegate tasks of data file re-encryption and user secret key update to cloud servers without disclosing data contents or user access privilege information. We achieve this goal by exploiting and uniquely combining techniques of attribute-based encryption (ABE), proxy re-encryption, and lazy re-encryption. Our proposed scheme also has salient properties of user access privilege confidentiality and user secret key accountability and achieves fine – grainedness, scalability and data confidentiality for data access control in cloud computing.

31. Arrhythmia Classification Based on ECG Signal using LMA Classifier

Electrocardiogram (ECG), a non-invasive technique is used as a primary diagnostic tool for cardiovascular diseases. A cleaned ECG signal provides necessary information about the electrophysiology of the heart diseases and ischemic changes that may occur. The detection of cardiac arrhythmias in the ECG signal consists of detection of QRS complex in ECG signal, feature extraction from detected QRS complexes and classification of beats using extracted feature set from QRS complexes. Transmission of signals across public receiver networks is another request in which large amount of data is implicated. For both detection and transmission in ECG signal, data compression is an important operation and represents another purpose of ECG signal processing. Hence, in this research work, the best training method i.e. Levenberg Marquardt algorithm will be utilized for classification on the basis of validation checks or epochs with an optimization technique. The purpose of this research work is to classify the disease dataset using Bacterial Foraging Optimization (BFO) Algorithm and trained by Levenberg Marquardt algorithm on the basis of the features extracted and also to test the image on the basis of the features at the database and the features extracted of the waveform, will be tested. The advantage of proposed method is to minimize the error rate of the classification which occurs due to insignificant count of R-peaks.

33. Rainfall Trend Analysis for Chaliyar River Basin in Kerala

Statistic and probability plays an important role in scientific and engineering community (Ayyub 2011) because statistical tools help to detect spatial and temporal trends for hydrological and environmental studies. Major schemes or projects are formulated based on the historical behavior of environment under uncertain climatic conditions. Therefore, a study of trend assists to investigate the overall pattern of change over time in hydro-meteorological variables especially for water resources project on temporal and spatial scales. Rainfall has been widely considered as one of the starting point towards the apprehension of climate change courses. Various studies have indicated due to climate change, rainfall pattern is most likely to change which would have adverse impacts on lives and livelihoods of millions of people. Analysis of the general rainfall trend is vital in understanding the underlying features, for the purpose of forecasting and in identifying the changes and impacts that are very crucial for an agro-based economy like the one of India. Trends in data can be identified by using either parametric or non-parametric methods, and both the methods are extensively used. Testing the significance of observed trends in hydro meteorological time series has received a great attention recently, especially in connection with climate change. The changing pattern of rainfall deserves urgent and systematic attention for planning, development, utilization and management of water resources. In the present study, to analyze the trends of the rainfall series of each individual station, the popular statistical methods; simple regression method (parametric), Mann-Kendall test and Sen’s estimator of slope method (non-parametric) have been applied. Among which Mann Kendall test has been used to detect significance of the trends in the time series of the precipitation & Sen’s slope estimator has been used to find out the magnitude of the detected trend.

34. IOT Based Fisherman Border Alert System using ZIGBEE

In our regular day to day existence, we have overcome many incidents on Indian fishermen caught arrested or even killed by Sri Lankan navy. However, it’s an “unsubstantiated allegation”. Asserting that its personnel is not authorized to open fire in such situations, the major cause set to be the negligence of the anglers who aren’t aware of the Maritime borders. Indian fishermen enter Sri Lankan boundary unknowingly. In major areas it’s impossible to know the exact border without the help of the GPS, the GPS gets the coordinates from the PIC microcontroller and wireless transmission of information is transferred from ZigBee tracking unit to the monitoring unit that store the coordinate of the exact location and if the anglers cross the border the microcontroller signals the ignition to set off, so that the anglers don’t have to cross the maritime border as well as the life of the fishermen’s is saved and the coordinates of the anglers is sent to the listed members or the naval officers as SMS(Short Message Service) who can rescue the fishermen’s on time

36. Strength and Deformation Behavior of Concrete Made with Recycled Concrete Aggregates

With the development and modernization of societies, lot of construction activities are seen everywhere. These construction activities are increasing at faster rate by large amount. Also, the destruction of existing structures, which have reached their service life, runs parallel to the construction activities. It is not essential that the structures need to be demolished only after when they have completed their service life, but also due to change in fashion and ongoing trend of reconstruction of even healthy structures just for creating more space in order to meet the present demand. All such activities are generating waste in bulk, and this waste is called the Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste. Disposal of such C&D waste in a sustainable manner is a hard nut to crack for the builders, developers and owners. While the disposal of C&D waste is a challenge, on the other hand there is a severe shortage of naturally available aggregates for construction of structures. Reduction of this demand in a small way is possible with the recycling or reusing of construction and demolition waste generated from the construction activities. Hence, the recycling of demolished waste is a sustainable solution of C& D waste. Recycled concrete aggregate have limited application as fill and sub grade material below foundation of structures, pavement etc. these applications are non-structural applications. However research has been ongoing all over the world especially in Japan, China, European countries and some part of India also, from last 50 year in order to find the potential implement of recycled aggregates as a structural grade concrete. The research work on “Strength and Deformation Characteristics of Fiber Reinforced Concrete made with RAC” is presented here and is one such attempt to establish the RAC as a structural grade concrete. This research work focus on mainly four structural properties of concrete i.e. Compressive Strength, Split Tensile Strength, Flexural performance and Flexural toughness. In this present study the experimental part is divided into two different series viz. Series-A (without fibers concrete mix) and Series-B (1% by volume Steel fibers in concrete mix). The natural coarse aggregates are replaced with Recycled coarse aggregates at different replacement ratios. Four replacement ratios are considered in this present study 0% (control specimens), 20%, 40% and 80% M-20 grade of concrete mix is considered in this study. In order to predict the flexural performance of RAC, 16 reinforced concrete beam specimens were prepared. The section was designed as under-reinforced section and tested on UTM for flexural behaviour under two point loading. Based on the results obtained it is found that on addition of steel fibers there is increase in almost all the structural properties of normal concrete and concrete made with recycled aggregates. The investigation indicated encouraging results for RAC beams, cube and cylindrical specimens in all respect, thus pointing to recycled aggregate concrete as potential alternative structural grade concrete of the 21st century

45. An Energy Efficient Intelligent Lighting System of LED Based on Motion and Wireless Technology

This project proposes a framework to implement an intelligent lighting system. The main reason for developing such project is that maximum energy is wasted due to inefficient use of the consumer appliances. To be specific, a light accounts for a huge part of the total energy consumption. Though there are number of light control systems are introduced but most of them are outdated. This is because the existing light control systems cannot be applied to home and working place successfully. The ARDUINO UNO R3 is used as the main component which interfaces IR sensor, LUX sensor, GAS sensor and GSM module. LUX sensor is used as light to digital converter which senses the brightness and with the help of ARDUINO. This will reduce the intensity of the LED according to the surrounding, by this the energy consumption is reduced. The main advantage of the usage of the IR sensor is, it can count the number of individuals entering into the room and according to that it will improve the intensity of the LED. Here we added an additional features which can able to detect the gas and notifies through GSM to a phone. These technologies have been concentrated more so that this system can be used in domestic applications.

Headlights of vehicles great danger during night driving. The drivers of most vehicles use high, bright beam while driving at night. This causes a discomfort to the person travelling from the opposite direction and therefore experiences a sudden glare for a short period of time. This is caused due to the high intense headlight beam from the other vehicle coming towards the one from the opposite direction. In this project, an automatic headlight dimmer which uses a Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) sensor has been designed to dim the headlight of on-coming vehicles to avoid human eye effects. This automatically switched the high beam into low beam, therefore reducing the glare effect by sensing the light intensity value of approaching vehicle and also eliminated the requirement of manual switching by the driver which was not done at all times. Arduino Uno software was employed in designing the project. The system device was able to automatically switch the headlight to low beam when it sensed a vehicle approaching from the opposite side using LDR sensor.

60. Hydrological Modelling in Narmada Basin using Remote Sensing and GIS with SWAT model and Runoff Prediction in Patan Watershed

Future runoff prediction is linked to a prior knowledge of future probable precipitation amounts. Hydrological models are a way that can enable transforming observed precipitations into stream flow. In this work a GIS based hydrologic model, SWAT is used in an Upper Narmada River basin at Patan in Jabalpur (M.P). The importance of this thesis comes due to Upper Narmada River is a river in which every year the discharge amount varies according to the weather condition. Some of the months the river is flooded and in some of the years the river is in drought condition. Due to this reason it will be very useful if we can roughly predict the runoff amount. Depending upon the river discharge amount we can decide whether there will be flood or drought condition in the watershed.The catchment area for this watershed has an approximate drainage area of 3950 km2, which is divided into 97 sub basins and 907 HRUs.SWAT model is developed to evaluate different parameters of the water resources like rainfall runoff modelling, sedimentation, eco-hydrological behavior of the watershed. SWAT tool with QGIS software to simulate water runoff for PATAN Watershed in Narmada river basin. It is concluded that the value of R2 can be considered reasonably satisfactory for estimating a watershed runoff. The value of R2 is 0.715.The results from the SUFI-2 calibration process indicated a good performance with a PBIAS value of 12.6% and R2 value was 0.83 indicating a good correlation between observed and simulated values. For the validation these value of R2 and PBIAS are 0.79 and 10.6 % respectively. Results showed that the annual mean flow discharge for the period 1996 to 2005 was 612.52 m3/s which agreed with the model result which shows that the average annual basin simulation values was 524.92 m3/s for the same period. While result simulation for the period 2016 to 2050 gave 414.70 m3/s which mean there is a reduction in mean flow discharge between two periods about 20.99%.

70. Automatic Subtitle Generation for Sound in Videos

The last ten years have been the witnesses of the emergence of any kind of video content. Moreover, the appearance of dedicated websites for this phenomenon has increased the importance the public gives to it. In the same time, certain individuals are deaf and occasionally cannot understand the meanings of such videos because there is not any text transcription available. Therefore, it is necessary to find solutions for the purpose of making these media artifacts accessible for most people. Several software proposes utilities to create subtitles for videos but all require an extensive participation of the user. Hence, a more automated concept is envisaged. This report indicates a way to generate subtitles following standards by using speech recognition. Three parts are distinguished. The first one consists in separating audio from video and converting the audio in suitable format if necessary. These second phase proceeds to the recognition of speech contained in the audio. The ultimate stage generates a subtitle file from the recognition results of the previous step. Directions of implementation have been proposed for the three distinct modules. The experiment results have not done enough satisfaction and adjustments have to be realized for further work. Decoding parallelization, use of well-trained models, and punctuation insertion are some of the improvements to be done.

71. Advanced Walking Stick for Visually Impaired

The generally available blind walking sticks are suitable of finding obstacle that touch the stick physically. It is helpful to a blind person but we here propose an advanced blind stick system that allows blind person to sense objects before stick touches them. This blind walking stick can sense what object it is. It uses Haar Cascade Classifier method to find out what he object is. Also it includes GPS tracking feature to find lost person along with other useful features. The system uses a microcontroller based circuit to handle the entire system functioning. The transducer is used to sense objects within certain range of the person and alarms the blind person. The type of object is announced through its speaker. Now this system also has a light sensing feature to give the blind person a sense of light. It signals the person if there is light or darkness so that he/she can know if it is night or has entered a very dark room/facility. If the person looses the stick the person can use an RF remote so the stick starts beeping and the person can find it. One more important feature of the proposed system is that the it allows the visually impaired one to send out an SMS message to his/her GPS location to the caretaker/relatives/loved ones of the person in case of trouble or being lost.

73. Development of Lost Articles and Reconciliation System for Post Office

A Post Office wants to improve its efficiency by delivering the lost letters and lost articles (which are sent in parcels) in a short period of time. Currently it takes about 3 months for a lost letter or a lost article to reach the correct destination. A machine reads addresses on letters. The ones, which could not be read by machine, are sorted by human intervention. Even after this, the address is not readable, it becomes a lost letter. Articles that fall out of the parcel become lost articles. When the sender/receiver calls up or contacts the post office for their letter/article, a manual note is made and then this note is sent to the warehouse where lost articles and lost letters are kept. The reconciliation process of finding the lost letter/article is manual and sometimes wrong letter/article(s) is sent. You have to develop a system, which captures the above functionality and reduce the turnaround time from 3 months to 10 working days. This is an Internet application. Users of the system: Employees of the Post Office. There are various groups for the system. For example, groups which have rights to enter master data, groups having rights update only articles or only letters, groups having rights to enter/update/delete data for complaints by customers, groups having the rights to reconcile etc.. User will start with the login page in which username and password are entered. This screen should also provide a functionality to change the password. To change the password, it should ask for the old password, new password and confirm the new password. [Please Note: You can additionally add the functionality of generating letters in the word format from the application. These letters will be sent to the customer and these will describe their complaint status and approximately when will they receive their lost item. There can be types of letters like Complaint Status Type, Additional Information Required Type, Lost Article Type, etc. The Complainants Address should be filled automatically in the letter from the database. A separate module for printing will be required

The current study is intended to present an in-depth analysis of literature relative to privacy preserving multi-keyword search over encrypted cloud data. The multi-keyword ranked search that the study proposes has the capacity to post the exact matching documents only. This paper essentially seeks to fill the perceived research gaps from previous studies in multi-keyword search in cloud computing. To be precise, the current paper considers three peer-reviewed research articles concerning multi-keyword search in cloud computing. As such, it analyses the methods, approaches and techniques that have been proposed in each of the three studies while presenting viewing these aspects in a critical limelight. The central problem focused by each of the three selected articles is keyword privacy. This draws from the fact that despite the capacity of perceived approaches to generate cryptic trapdoors which conceals keywords, there is a possibility that cloud service providers through statistical analysis can estimate the keywords. The second concern that has been discussed in these research articles is trapdoor un-linkability. This arises mostly from deterministic trapdoor generation functions which gives the cloud service provider an easy avenue of accumulating keyword frequency. Lastly, surveyed studies also reveal concerns relating to access patterns whereby although a many of encryption techniques can be deployed to conceal the access pattern, there remains efficiency concerns with such encryption.

94. Influent of Overall Architectural Arrangement on Structural Elements Design

In designing a civil structure, difference professionals are involved from the conceptual stages through the constructions up to the final project stages. Because of this, there are different links which exist between different professionals which need to be addressed properly to obtain the best environmentally friend structure with adequate cost as well as strength and durability. In particular, when we look at the cooperation of architects and engineers, we may observe that they have some difficulty in working together harmony. This is due to the complexity of intangibility and tangibility as well as actual and abstract notion of the Architecture. Structural engineers focus more on tangible and actual notion of structures and detail aspects. On the other hand, Architects put great prominence on global and general aspects, such as spatial forms and atmosphere generated. This contradictory ways of thinking sometimes result in difficulty in communication [10]. Moreover, in the design processes, the general arrangement or structural form is chosen for a building at initial stage will normally determine the type of structure which will have to be adapted to support it and will perhaps also dictate the selection of structural material [4]. In fact the structural dimensioning of the previously defined morphological system results in it being a less trustworthy system, leading to a structure that is greatly susceptible to seismic damage This is because of the delinquency of relating the already defined architectural form and that of the structural design [11]. Furthermore, “reference [7]” quoting different architects ideas and stating: “All professionals need to learn the art of Architecture because it concerned altogether – John Ruskin. Le Corbusier said that “Architecture is the accurate, proficient, and the outstanding play of masses brought together in light”. For this reason, Architects and structural engineers need to have a better understanding of the joint works and carry out the activities in close proximity to produce a sound architecture.

96. A Review on Plant Metabolites and Ayurvedic Medicine

From ancient times, Ayurveda has its own relevance and is known for its mystical effect. In Hindu mythology, during Satyug when Lord Hanuman went all the way to Himalayas to find a magical herb which had the power to cure any malady known as Sanjeevani booti (Selaginella bryopteris) to save the life of Lakshmana. Ayurveda marks its presence even today and has achieved different level of excellence. As it is said that Sanjeevani glowed in dark, so did the Ayurveda or science of life. It is an ancient system of natural and holistic medicine which broadly utilizes the secondary metabolites released from certain plants. Like in Ashwagandha various secondary metabolites are present like Withaferin A which has anti-cancer properties. It also has great effect on anxiety, diabetes, high cholesterol, arthritis, tumours, tuberculosis and a number of other diseases. Formation of memories can also be improved using Ashwagandha, so it is used to treat Alzheimer’s disease. In this presentation we will discuss the process for obtaining the secondary metabolites from various medicinally important plants. For obtaining these vital secondary metabolites a suitable extraction technique is also mandatory. Extraction is an important step for the isolation of phytochemicals from plant materials. A specific technique and optimization of various parameters can be utilized for the isolation of a peculiar type of secondary metabolites. In this paper we have discussed some of the main ingredients found in some of the most powerful medicinal plants which includes Withaferin A extracted from Withania somnifera, digoxin from Digitalis purpurea and Morphine from Papaver somniferum. We have also discussed some of the most suitable processes which are used for their extraction depending on their properties. Like in Withaferin A, we used solvent extraction and cell suspension culture for its isolation. We have also discussed their role in the treatment of present diseases. A newer approach is also introduced of derivatization of active ingredient which leads to its enhancing effect which can be highly useful to produce or synthesize more effective drugs.

105. Fabrication of Compressed Air Engine using Double Acting Cylinder

The environmental pollution in the metropolitan cities is increasing rapidly mostly because of the increased number of fossil fuel powered vehicles. Many alternative options are now being studied throughout the world. One of the alternative solutions can be a compressed air powered engine. The main advantage of this engine is that no hydrocarbon fuel is required which means no combustion process is taking place. In this work, a pneumatic cylinder activation is used as a linear source and with the help of crankshaft, the rotational movement is obtained. The flow of air inside the pneumatic cylinder is controlled by means of the solenoid valve which is actuated periodically by an electronic control unit. As we completely changed the usage of existing conventional engine to a simplified air powered one, this new technology is easy to adapt. Another benefit is that it uses air as fuel which is available abundantly in the atmosphere. With the use of these technological advances this small concept of using compressed-air could really make a difference. The use of pneumatics could help save the fuel costs to a great extent. This concept mainly focuses on the non-usage of the conventional style fuels that have been used for centuries in automobiles and as a result, there has been a tremendous growth in the pollution sector especially in the busiest countries. Also, the anti-pollution measures taken by humans are very less so that means we are the verge of global warming which inflicts a great deal of disaster on a large scale human as well as other living population. Future modifications could render some major design revolutions that could let us use this in many sectors.

Instead, we can have a single point check to make sure the required devices are in their possession and some other things can be checked by scanning them using SCANDIT SDK which is integrated to a smartphone to ensure fishermen safety as well as national security. Also, we will provide an IOT device so that we can track the location of their boats and send alerts to them who may cross the border unknowingly through which may save them from getting caught by neighboring country’s coast guards.

128. Travel Grouping

Many a time, while traveling between two places, people face many kinds of difficulties, some of them can be like traveling alone or, some induced problems because of it like having excessive traveling costs, having reservations about whom to travel with or without, security problems, etc. These problems, although may seem not so grave to some eyes, can have huge effects on some other people, who differ in opinion, a way of living, etc. Hence, to solve this problem, we have proposed this idea, of making a “Travel Grouping App” that will make use of the modern technologies and aim to reduce this problem. Our app will run on all kinds of Android-based devices. With the help of this app, people, who are initially unknown, but traveling between the same source and destination places, and on similar dates, and similar times can form a group of themselves, so that they can communicate with each other and hence resolve the above-mentioned difficulties that traveling alone can incur. There can also be further provisions and functionalities in the app, like common mailboxes, GPS tracking etc. Additionally, there will additionally be a website, for the same purpose, through which users would be able to register themselves with our service. All in all, through this paper, we try to explore the idea of making such an app, additionally associated with a website, where users can register themselves, form groups with people, who have similar kinds of travel specifications as themselves, contact each other, and travel together, thus reducing some of the problems.

135. Enhancement on Vehicle Speed Detection System for Avoidance of Accident

This paper presents an arrangement to detect reckless driving or over speeding on highways and by design send tickets to violators over email. In the past, many devices have been proposed but they require human effort. There are no means of control or monitor speed of the vehicles except the use of traffic policemen. Given the huge mileage of driveways, the number of traffic policemen is far from enough to observe and analyze most drivers. The proposed model is advantageous as there will not be any need of traffic policemen and will accurately detect speed rather than maintaining trust in the eye. This paper discusses the hardware as well as the software modules involved in the speed detection system. The system requires a microprocessor, a camera for input, and network capabilities to send data. It includes some reflections on the evolution of this methodology and different design decisions and their impact on the system.

Cancer of the oral cavity is a major public health problem with approximately 300,000 new cases reported annually worldwide. It is known to develop from pre-existing potentially malignant oral lesions (PMOL) or de nevo. Most of the cases go unnoticed till they are in their advanced stage. The majority present with locally advanced disease (stage III and IV) with dismal 5-year survival rates of 20-50%. Persistent failure to diagnose and treat oral cancer at an early stage is a key factor limiting advances in the outcome. Improving detection, diagnosis, and treatment of precancerous changes and early asymptomatic cancers is imperative to increase survival and improve functional outcomes for persons at risk to develop oral cancer.

142. Smart Vehicle System for Over-Speeding Detection

All over the world, road accident results in fatalities of 1.3 million a year and in India, it is 11 percent of the global road crashes. In the year 2013, we had about half a million road accidents resulting in 137,572 fatalities and 4,90,000 serious injuries. Most accidents occur due to distracted driving and over speeding. Mostly in highways, many drivers neglect the speed limit and drive with 10-20 KMPH over the speed limit. According to this statistics, 36.8% accidents are due to over speeding. Hence, we are proposing a system in which speed monitoring of every vehicle can be done and reported directly to higher authorities. The system uses the hall-effect sensor to read the current speed of the vehicle and record the speed and coordinates of the vehicle in the database situated in the cloud. The system can then analyze the data to see which vehicles over-speeded at which location at what time and generate the map of the ride where the user can see the over-speeding statistics of the vehicles. Further, the system can be used for two-wheeler vehicles where in cases where parents can track the over-speeding stats of their children.

146. A Study about Skill, Scale and Speed in India

With the combination of these three words skill, scale and speed a lot of development can be achieved. A developing country can attain developed position. As in present scenario India is also heading toward attaining this objective. For any country like India where we are looking for development the first thing we need is “skill” and education and human capital would be the only way for India to really benefit from the fact that “65% of the population is under the age of 35”. The demographic dividend depended on skill development. India today is struggling to educate its people even though it had historically been an exporter of teachers to the rest of the world. Then comes “scale” by scale, we mean the need for India to “think big” and end its tendency to “think very small”. We like to think express trains rather than bullet trains. When most people spoke of “infrastructure”, they tended to think of physical infrastructure, but it also had to be about handling data. Recently Mr. Modi said developing both “highways and I-ways”. To take India on the path of developed nation “make in India” is a great initiative by Mr. Modi but still there are challenges that needs to be resolved. To become a manufacturing nation, India has to quickly move beyond rhetoric to create a clear strategy and favorable policy environment for manufacturing to take off. A close dialogue and partnership between government and the private sector is critical. And to overcome these challenges India would need to work on “skill, scale and speed” if it hoped to compete with its northern neighbor.

149. Key – Aggregate searchable encryption

The capability of sharing encrypted data with unlike users via public cloud storage may greatly ease security concerns over accidental data leaks in the cloud. Hence there is a need for efficient management of encryption keys. In this group of selected documents need to be shared with any group of different user’s desire by right different encryption keys to be used for different documents. However need of producing a complex number of keys for both processes i.e. encryption and search, and distributed to different users and those users will have to safely store the keys and put forward a complex number of keywords trapdoors to the clouds in order to search for data. However, because of large complexity, this way is unmanageable and almost practically not possible. In this paper, we are proposing the concept of Key- aggregate searchable encryption in which data owner needs to make distribution a single key to a user for having the same complex number of documents, and user needs to put forward a single trapdoor to the cloud for the query the Shared Documents. However, the complexity is reduced in relation to looking for of Documents in a separate part of the cloud.

150. Amelioration of Streptozotocin Induced Diabetes Mellitus and Lipid Profile in Rats by Mukia Maderaspatana Linn

Diabetes is a condition primarily defined by the level of hyperglycemia giving rise to a risk of microvascular damage (retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy).Over 400 traditional plant treatments for diabetes have been reported, although only a small number of these have received the scientific and medical evaluation to assess their efficacy. The World Health Organization Expert Committee on diabetes has recommended that traditional medicinal herbs be further investigated. In the Indian system of medicine, Mukia maderaspatana Linn was used for different pharmacological activities. But the pharmacological and scientific evidence for its antidiabetic effect is yet to be proved. So, based on above fact it can be evaluated for antidiabetic and antioxidant property in streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rats for 21 days. Diabetes was induced using streptozotocin (50 mg/kg i.p) and after the induction of diabetes the animals were given with MEE (100 mg/kg, 200 mg/kg), MCF (100 mg/kg) and MBF (100 mg/kg) orally for 21 days. Blood glucose levels were determined by using a GOD-POD method with diagnostic kits. After 21 days the parameters like HDL, LDL, VLDL, TC, TG, Albumin, Creatinine, total protein and glucose were estimated. The treatment with the extracts and fractions of Mukia maderaspatana Linn improved the lipid level and lipoprotein level to a normal condition which may be attributed to its potent antidiabetic activity.

166. Arrhythmia classification using ECG Signal based on BFO with LMA Classifier

Electrocardiogram (ECG), a non-invasive technique is used as a primary diagnostic tool for cardiovascular diseases. ECG provides valuable information about the functional aspects of the heart and cardiovascular system. The detection of cardiac arrhythmias in the ECG signal consists of detection of QRS complex in ECG signal; feature extraction from detected QRS complexes; classification of beats using extracted feature set from QRS complexes. Earlier methods have been developed by authors to predict heart disease on the basis of ECG but as each method has its own advantage as well disadvantage. Hence, in this thesis, the best training method i.e. Levenberg Marquardt algorithm has been utilized for classification on the basis of validation checks or epochs with an optimization technique. The purpose of this research work is to classify the disease dataset using Bacterial Foraging Optimization (BFO) Algorithm and trained by Levenberg Marquardt algorithm on the basis of the features extracted and also to test the image on the basis of the features at the database and the features extracted of the waveform, to be tested. The advantage of the proposed method is to minimize the error rate of the classification which occurs due to an insignificant count of R-peaks. The database from physionet.org has been used for performance analysis. Several experiments are performed on the test dataset and it is observed that Levenberg-Marquardt Algorithm classifies ECG beats better as compared to Back Propagation Neural Network (BPNN). FAR, FRR and accuracy parameters are used for detecting the ECG disease. The simulation process is undergone by using MATLAB simulation tool.

The enzyme kinetics helps in drug designing, Drug Metabolism and the determination of disassociation constants for antigen-antibody interactions in solutions. The arising physical governing system we solved by using the general ordinary differential method. The obtained results show the substrate, enzyme, substrate-enzyme, and product concentration profiles are presented with help of graphs and tables. From this study, we found that as increasing substrate value improves the rate of reaction. If the rate constant is greater than substrate concentration, the rate of reaction depends on free enzyme content and substrate amount. In a similar way, the substrate concentration is greater than rate constant the rate of reaction depends only on free enzyme content.

170. Design and implementation of IoT based smart irrigation system

India is the agriculture-based country. Our ancient people completely depended on the agricultural harvesting. Agriculture is a source of livelihood of majority Indians and has the great impact on the economy of the country. In dry areas or in case of inadequate rainfall, irrigation becomes difficult. So, it needs to be automated for proper yield and handled remotely for farmer safety. Increasing energy costs and decreasing water supplies point out the need for better water management. Irrigation management is a complex decision-making process to determine when and how much water to apply to a growing crop to meet specific management objectives. If the farmer is far From the agricultural land he will not be noticed of current conditions. So, efficient water management plays an important role in the irrigated agricultural cropping systems. A low-cost alternative solution for efficient water management currently in use is drip irrigation systems that consist of an automated irrigation mechanism which turns the pumping motor ON and OFF on detecting the moisture content of the earth using the soil moisture sensor without the intervention of a human. The benefit of employing these techniques is to decrease human interference and it is quite feasible and affordable. This Smart irrigation system project is using an Arduino microcontroller, that is programmed to collect the input signal according to a moisture content of the soil and its output is given to the mobile application that will operate the pump.

172. A study on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability in agribusiness in Ethiopia – challenges and developing strategies

The commercialization of agriculture is a top priority for Ethiopia. It is, therefore, encouraging to have seen a rapid development of the commercial agriculture sector in recent years. Entrepreneurs, government, and other stakeholders share the opinion that commercial agriculture can be successful only when it is done on a sustainable footing. It is widely acknowledged that although the entrepreneur has a wide responsibility in this respect, he or she cannot do it alone. Developing sustainable agriculture requires an exchange of knowledge and experience among business, government and civil societal organizations. The code of practice developed by and for the Ethiopian floriculture sector is a good example of such a process. Working on sustainability by entrepreneurs is generally referred to as corporate social responsibility (CSR). In practice, it entails constantly working on improving the three P’s (people, planet, and profit) in a balanced manner. Most entrepreneurs involved in commercial agriculture in Ethiopia are motivated to work on CSR. As a result, a wide variety of good practices have evolved in recent years. This article is an attempt to highlight CSR practices, important issues in agribusiness and Suggestions to promote work on improvement of the three P’s (people, planet, and profit) to the agribusiness community.

174. Study on random order testing

Software testing is very highly used and very expensive. The main function of the software testing is to find the defects. Not all software defects are caused by coding errors. One common source of expensive defects is requirement gaps, e.g. unrecognized requirements that result in errors of omission by the program designer. Requirement gaps can often be non-functional requirements such as testability, scalability, maintainability, usability, performance, and security. A programmer makes an error (mistake), which results in a defect (fault, bug) in the software source code. If this defect is executed, in certain situations the system will produce wrong results, causing a failure. So there are different test cycles in which a project can be tested. In this project I have taken a shopping cart website, the testing has been done to each test case multiple times to check the number of errors got in the testing. The duration of the testing is also noted. In totally random order texting all possible ways are also been tested and the successful testing output without any errors is performed. Normal testing for the same site is done simultaneously and comparing the difference and time consuming and the maximum number of errors obtained.

182. Single phase solar inverter

In this paper, a grid connection of single-phase PV inverter system is presented, which can deal with solar energy and performs power conditioning. To draw maximum power from the solar system we use maximum power point tracking technology for PV arrays. This MPPT technology based on the maximum power point varies with irradiation and temperature linearly. The control of a grid-connected inverter is investigated. There are two key control issues that need to be examined. The first is the control of the AC side of the converter to ensure that sinusoidal output waveforms are produced. And the output from the PV panel is controlled by the boost converter. The second key issue that needs to be examined is the current that is fed from the PV panels to the inverter. The ripple on this current must be minimized as much as possible so that the inverter can be implemented with maximum power point tracking techniques (MPPT) that will enable it to extract the maximum power that is available from the PV panels at any given time.

185. RFID and its applications

RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) technology is used on a large scale these days, this technology can be used to identify various objects very easily. There are mainly three components in RFID. They are the transceiver, transponder, and antenna. The RFID transceiver plays an important role in the transmission of power in case of passive tags and it also does reception of information present in the RFID tag. The transponder does the work of receiving frequency signal and then transmitting another signal. The antenna does the work of establishing the connection between the reader and tag. The RFID system can be made with different frequencies, so depending on the range the antenna must be selected. One of the applications of RFID in real life is “Smart Bus Route Indicator”. Basically, in this application of RFID, TX-433 which is an ASK transmitter and RX-433 which is an ASK receiver is used as one of the main components. These transmitter and receiver are tuned to 433MegaHertz. The encoder IC does the work of converting parallel inputs into the serial output, this serial output is transmitted using transmitter antenna to the receiver antenna. Now the decoder will convert the serial input into the parallel output and give it to output pins of the microcontroller. The data then can be displayed on the LCD display. So RFID modules can be used to send the data so as to specify the location and arrival time of a bus.

187. Energy aware routing through optimum Load Balancing and Evolutionary Algorithm in WSN

Average lifetime improvement of a critical application sensor network is always a promising research area where a lot of scope for applying a technique like cross-layer approach, energy-aware routing, load balancing etc. Due to the heterogeneous nature of sensor network and dynamic situation static solutions always fail to give an optimal solution. The performance of network like an average lifetime, throughput, packet delivery ratio, overhead due to routing etc can be improved through an optimized load balanced network. Optimisation technique like simulated annealing, genetic optimization and particle swarm optimization yield a time-varying performance due to its operation of principle. The various network parameters can be used to represent chromosome in the genetic algorithm (GA) and similarly this parameter can be represented in particle swarm optimization (PSO) optimization. The performance of GA and PSO is measured in the dynamic environment but testing is done in a standard environment.

188. The comparison between various object detection algorithms

Object detection is a concept that has been handed over to the machines for some time now. It all started with pattern recognition back in the 1960’s and the concept has been evolving ever since. Now it has come to such an extent that machines are successfully able to achieve real-time object detection. But all this isn’t done on its own and requires human help and instantiation in order to start working independently. Whenever there is a need for instantiation, there comes a need for an algorithm. Talking about algorithms, an algo is a finite series of steps which when performed lead to an outcome. Ever since the beginning of time, we have been using algorithms to do our daily chores. Ever since the beginning of machines, we have been using algorithms to program them and to define how they would react to various inputs. Similarly, when the concept of object detection came in, the series of development of algorithms began. There have been multiple developments over the past which have been able to do the job of object detection but the difference between these has always been of speed and accuracy as well as efficiency. Earlier algorithms were performed on still images that were captured out of cameras or taken out of video footages. Now, highly efficient algorithms have made it possible to provide real-time object detection that can be performed by continuously moving video footages.
Object detection is not a cakewalk and has a lot of challenges that it comes with. The goal to be achieved is overcome some challenges and reduce the effect of others to the bare minimum. It is true that there are trade-offs involved in this process but based on the objective of the program, these trade-offs can be easily managed. The main challenges that come up are mentioned below.

To obediently and modestly observes the asthma patient’s atmosphere to classify the presence of two asthma-exacerbating activities, smoking and cooking using the Foobot sensor. Asthma management is challenging as it involves understanding causes and avoiding triggers that are both multi-factorial and distinctive to every individual. Moreover, it is tricky for doctors to constantly monitor the health of lots of patients and the environmental triggers simultaneously; or to get sufficient data on the environment in which the patient lives. A data-driven approach to develop a continuous monitoring-activity detection system aimed at understanding and improving indoor air quality in asthma management. In this learning, we were productively talented to notice a high absorption of Particulate Matter (PM), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) during cooking and smoking activities. We detected (a) smoking with an error rate of 1%, (b) cooking with an error rate of 11%, and (c) obtain an overall 95.7% percent accuracy classification across all events (control, cooking and smoking). A scheme will permit doctors and clinicians to associate potential asthma symptoms and exacerbation information from patients with environmental factors without having to personally be present.

200. Performance evaluation of grey water treatment using Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) along with Phytotreatment and future scope for use as drinking water

Greywater forms a major part of our domestic wastewater system. Proper Treatment and reuse of grey water can solve a major problem of water scarcity. Grey water is that part of our wastewater which is free from fecal matter and contains very low organic content and only a few pathogens. It becomes easier to treat greywater discharged from bathrooms, kitchens, and laundries. Properly treated grey water can be used for toilet flushing, irrigation, gardening of homes to reduce our water bills. Several treatment technologies have been developed in the past years to evaluate the performance of greywater treatment. Use of Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) along with a mathematical model was done to analyze the different concentrations of grey water i.e. High, Medium, and low concentrations. The RBC system proved to be efficient in BOD removal and it was between 93% – 96% and TSS removal were between 84% – 95% of all concentrations of Influent grey water. Phytotreatment of grey water was also done by the use of oleaginous plants like rapeseed, soybean, and sunflower. The Phytotreatment tests were carried out in 20 L pots in a greenhouse and it presents high removal efficiency of Nitrogen ( N > 80%), Phosphorus (P >90%), COD about 90 %. Biomass production along with grey water treatment was the main finding of this study. The treated grey water can be used for disinfection and Sand Filtration. Efficient Treatment of greywater can comply with water shortage in future

201. Solar based security and smart irrigation system for agriculture

Modern agriculture is the need which is required to enhance productivity and security of agriculture system. The security to the agriculture field has to be provided in order to protect the field from animals. The productivity of the agriculture system can be enhanced through the proper irrigation system, crop production/selection based on amount of water available and limited sprinkling of the pesticides’ therefore decided to develop an application model which suits humankind with: 1) The security can be provided through laser fencing. Laser-based fencers can be used to protect the farm, farm-lands, forest bungalows etc. from animals. In a way, laser fencing help in performing the job of a farmer/forest guard present in the field. Laser fencer controls the animals/human by giving the siren indication that alerts them to stay away from the fence which will protect our field. Continuous monitoring of the field through the wireless camera which will be mounted in the field.2) Create a robot that supplies pesticide in an agricultural environment with low wastage and reliability. The robot can be controlled by any wireless media of communication 3) Create a setup to provide water level indication in the water tank so that the proper crop can be selected which can easily grow in the available water. Thus this avoids the problem of scarcity of water 4) water irrigation system based on the moisture content in the field. Water will be supplied to the field if the moisture content in the field is low (minimum threshold) and supply will be stopped if moisture content is more (maximum threshold) in the field. Apart from these, we can even control the water supply through GSM.

207. Artificial farming – An electronic approach to grow plants

This project is for growing plants or vegetables inside the packed electronic environment by using the artificial plant grow Led to growing the plants. The photosynthesis process carried out by the plants independent on the LEDs which will provide the total electronic surrounding to the crops so we can call it as an “Artificial farming- an electronic approach to grow plants”. In this project, we have made a prototype of actual concept. The amount of water required to grow the plants is very much less as compared to the traditional farming, here we have provided the automation technique for providing water to the plants. In this prototype, we have made a rack structure so that we can take the more crop production by making racks on one above in a small area. In this artificial environment, we are using sensors to monitor the condition of the soil, air, temperature. According to collected data by the sensors, this data is provided to aurdino for the controlling the water supply, lights, fans. The LEDs are used to provide the special light wavelength. By using that wavelength the plants are going to carry out the photosynthesis process. In this process, the food making process of plants is light dependent. As the environment is indoor it will not have any insects, and pests affecting the crops, hence no insecticides and pesticides will be required. The indoor environment will neither evaporate water nor will percolate it into the earth hence water requirements be very small. The indoor environment is equipped with artificial lighting, so crops can be grown independent of season. By using the electronic farming method we can reduce the greenhouse gases, the overall quality of the food is increased due to the organic fertilizers being used to grow the plant and also the pesticides and the chemical fertilizers are not used in this type of farming. The water required for the electronic farming is much lesser than the ordinary traditional farming. As it is completely indoor so that the atmospheric effect is not observed on the plant so we can take year-round food production.

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) is a unique kind of Deep Neural Networks (DNN) which has a place in the Machine Learning Domain. This calculation has so far been effectively connected to Image Super-Resolution (SR) and also other picture reclamation and characterization errands. Picture/Video Super Resolution implies upgrading the picture/video quality.In this proposed framework, we consider the testing issue of video super-resolution.Often there is a tradeoff between the spatial and worldly determination estimation and, consequently regardless of whether the quantity of pixels in the picture is progressively the picture, we get is a low-quality picture and a similar idea applies to recordings. Henceforth, we propose a CNN that is prepared on both the spatial and the fleeting measurements of recordings to improve their spatial determination. Back to back edges are movement remunerated and utilized as a contribution to a CNN that gives super-settled video outlines as a yield. While extensive picture databases are accessible to prepare profound neural systems, it is additionally testing to make a vast video database of adequate quality to prepare neural systems for video rebuilding. We demonstrate that by utilizing pictures to pre-train our model, a generally little video database is adequate for the preparation of our model to accomplish better outcomes. Encourage we analyze our CNN based Very Deep Image/Video Super Resolution approach with presently utilized Iterative Video Super-Resolution (SR) calculations.

213. Biogas fuel station for Dilkap College

Biogas is one of the most useful gases which is widely used for various purpose. Biogas is used as a heat energy, electricity generation and if the gas is treated further can be into Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). The production of biogas is under the anaerobic condition where oxygen is absent and anaerobic bacteria are present. The temperature plays an important role in the whole process. In this project waste of food produced from the kitchen is the important source of an ingredient which is useful for the production of biogas. The kitchen food waste can be easily decomposable and produce gases which contain methane, carbon dioxide, moisture, etc. The biogas produced can be used as a supplement fuel for kitchen and also used to generate electricity. The main unit of the process is digester in which the biomass waste in feeded after some interval of days the degradation takes place, during process oxygen is used completely and carbon dioxide is produced, know this carbon dioxide is used for the production of methane in presence of methanogen bacteria.The scrubber is installed to remove the useless gases rather than methane. The first scrubber is soda lime which is used to remove carbon dioxide. Second scrubber in which there is silica gel which is useful for the removal of hydrogen sulfate. Third scrubber in which there is ethylene glycol which is used for removal of moisture present in the gas. After removal of all such gases only methane is left which is combustible and that is also known as natural gas which is used to generate electricity, heat, etc. Final product which is left in digester can also be used as fertilizer.

Segmentation of images is one amongst the primitive and most vital stages of processing in images and plays a very crucial role in analyzing medical mammogram images but images of mammogram have the moderate level of distinction and are disrupted with sturdy speckle noise. Owing to the effects, mammogram images segmentation is extremely difficult and conventional segmentation techniques may not lead to result satisfaction. Due to high noise, low distinction, and alternative imaging artifacts, region boundaries in mammogram images often do not adjust to the assumptions of many image processing algorithms. This paper addresses the potencies and weaknesses of the existing techniques of carcinoma detection in mammograms. The paper provides new aspects of research for researchers.

217. Managing overbooking in hotels: A probabilistic model using Poisson distribution

Yield Management is commonly practiced in all hotels and other industries where advance booking is required. Various revenue and non-revenue tools of yield management have been practiced and applied. One important tool for yield management is using overbooking in hotels and airlines industries. For management at an operational level, a sound understanding of overbooking will allow maximizing revenue. The real challenge arises when faced with the question regarding how many overbooking is optimum. If we are overly cautious and overbook very less, it would mean a loss of revenue for the hotel. On the other hand, if we overbook to a large extent it could result in confirmed reservations being walked (turned away). This may lead to unsatisfied guests and a poor brand image for the hotel. Hence a balanced approach is required which will help us optimize the overbooking level. In most hotels, this is achieved by adjusting overbooking level based on the experience of Front Office manager. This paper utilizes Poisson distribution as a tool to model the probability of no-shows in a hotel using historical data and hence optimize the number of overbooking to be accepted in a given time period.

222. Bio-CNG production potential from locally available biomass

Today Mumbai is facing the problem of waste accumulation in different areas and limitation of waste disposal sites. These wastes are dumped in the form of big heaps. The degradation of these waste starts after few days. The process of degradation is aerobic at outer layer and anaerobic at inner layers. Due to these reactions, putrescible gases are come out and causes the health hazard. The Bio-CNG plant gives the best solution for this problem. It uses the vegetable waste as raw material and converts it into a high calorific value fuel. Hence it minimizes the waste accumulation and also solves the problem of energy crisis at the same time. In this study 6kg waste is digested under controlled environment condition n a mesophilic temperature range(30°C-45°C) for 26 days to obtain Biogas. The Biogas so obtained contains CH₄, CO₂, H₂S, and Moisture content. The presence of CO₂, H₂S, and Moisture content in Biogas is considered as impurities as it reduces the calorific value of fuel and hence removed using three scrubber units to obtain the composition of natural gas.These three scrubber units contained Sodalime, Silica gel, and Tri-ethylene glycol to remove CO₂, H₂S and moisture content respectively. The Bio-CNG obtained above contains more than 85% of CH₄ which has high calorific fuel value. These Bio-CNG can be used as automobile fuel, for cooking as well as for power generation. It can also be considered an alternative fuel option against the limited stock of conventional fuels like coal, petroleum etc in future.

228. Enhanced test case prioritization technique using bat algorithm

Software testing is the method of recognizing the accuracy and excellence of software package. The main idea is to identify whether the software fulfills the exact desires, requirements, and hopes of the customer or we can also say that testing is the execution of a system or application in order to discover software defect, errors or bugs. Regression testing is a type of software testing that guarantees that earlier established and tested software still executes the same way after it is altered or interfaced with other software. Variations may contain software improvements, configuration changes, etc. Throughout regression testing, new software regressions or bugs may be discovered. Sometimes a software change-impact analysis is achieved to decide which areas could be affected by the projected changes. The main idea of regression testing is to guarantee that alterations made to the software, such as the addition of new features or modifying present features, have not unfavorably affected features of the software that should not change. Most exclusive activities that take place as software is established and preserved is the retesting of the software when it is modified. Since regression testing is essential but costly, considerable research has been achieved to develop techniques to make regression testing more operative and efficient. There may be inadequate resources to permit for the re-execution of all test cases in regression testing. In this condition, test case prioritization techniques object to increase the efficiency of regression testing by assembling the test cases so that the most valuable are performed first.Various nature-inspired algorithms were introduced which are Ant colony optimization, Particle swarm optimization, Greedy algorithms, Local beam search and Bat algorithm. Results show that the performance of Bat algorithm is best out of all algorithms.

The banking system in today’s world is open to threats of fraud and cyber-attacks. Since todays banking system is built on centralized databases, it is easy for an attacker to penetrate in any such database which will easily compromise all the information and data of the customers of the bank. This vulnerability of today’s banking system can be reduced by re-building the banking systems on top of block chain technology, which will remove the centralized database architecture and decentralize the data over the block chain, thus reducing the threat of database being hacked. Since the transactions over the block chain technology is verified by each and every nodes of the chain, it will make the transactions more and more secure thus making the overall banking system faster and secure.

245. A comprehensive view of encryption and automatic file updating system

Lately, the information that can be stored and analyzed in the petabyte scale datasets also known as Big Data has proved to be immensely utilitarian due to its innumerable applications such as analysis of user’s choices which can be used in the manipulation of options provided to a user by various firms and organizations. This is intended for the benefit of the user can be highly beneficial and fructuous. This Big Data is stored in storage places called as Cloud that have other kinds of data directly provided by users stored as well. Applications of these data directly provided by users usually entail storing large data chunks in certain designated locations by the users so that the user does not have to worry about managing data storages for the same. These applications have led to opening up of a whole new plethora of possibilities, trends, and engagements. Unfortunately, not all of these are legit and we can see malpractices cropping up every day due to manipulation of user’s personal data for odious uses and ill-intentions. That being said, one must not undermine the cumulative storage size required for storing these magnanimous data. [Problems]: This means the major concerns for data storage in Cloud today are two. The first one is managing large data storage locations. The second one is the safety of stored data from Machiavellian sources that unceasingly try to get hold of intricate data for malicious purposes. [Solution]: Therefore this research aims at finding a way out of these prevalent problems. This is achieved by aiming at the two major problems. The first one is dealt with using distributed file storage system which can be employed by an organization to store intricate personal data in their own computing systems. This would enable them the assurance of no data leakage by a foreign data storage firm that would have been managing their data on its own cloud. Using this distributed file system would also hold the organization accountable for any data breaches and hence the security of data could be managed in a better way. The second problem of security against malicious data intrusions is dealt with using encryption and decryption techniques while storing and retrieving data. The encryption-decryption technique utilized in this research is RSA. [Result]: By performing the aforementioned steps, the two major concerns that come with storing personal data on the cloud can be handled efficiently.

247. Analysis of machining parameters of aluminum power mixed EDM process

Scientifically emerging industries like automotive, defense, aerospace, electronics, nuclear power, metallic molds and dies require materials of high strength, high-temperature resistant alloys like carbides, super alloys, haste-alloys etc. Manufacturers strive hard to produce these components at lower cost and of esteem quality as they have a direct impact on the profit earned by the firm. Hence, the productivity can be improved by increasing the material removal rate (or) by reducing the machining time of the product. Addition of a fine conductive powder to the dielectric fluid decreases its insulating strength and consequently increases the inter-electrode space causing an easy removal of the debris.The process variables of PMEDM play a considerable role in material removal mechanism. Performance of the PMEDM process depends upon characteristics like powder type, concentration, particle size, electrode area and workpiece constituents. As a result, the process becomes more stable, thereby, improving the material removal rate (MRR) and surface finish. Moreover, the surface develops high resistance to corrosion and abrasion. In this study, we have chosen the OHNS (Oil Hardened Non-Shrinking) die steel as workpiece material. A copper electrode and brass electrode with a diameter of 10 mm were used to cut the workpiece in EDM. Commercial kerosene has been chosen as the dielectric fluid. The consequence of the Machining parameters such as Pulse ON time, Pulse OFF time and current over the Machining time and Surface Roughness has been analyzed. The interaction study is made by Response Surface Methodology.

253. Mechanical behaviour of hybrid composite filled with flax fiber

Fiber reinforced polymer composites has been used in a variety of application because of their many advantages such as the relatively low cost of production, easy to fabricate and superior strength compares to neat polymer resins. Reinforcement in the polymer is either synthetic or natural. Synthetic fiber such as glass, carbon etc. has high specific strength but their fields of application are limited due to the higher cost of production. Recently there is an increasing interest in natural fiber based composites due to their many advantages. In this connection, an investigation has been carried out to make better utilization of sisal fiber for making value-added products. The objective of the present research work is to study the physical, mechanical and water absorption behavior of flax fiber reinforced epoxy based hybrid composites. The effect of fiber loading and length on mechanical properties like tensile strength, flexural strength, the hardness of composites is studied. Also, the surface morphology of fractured surfaces after tensile testing is examined using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

257. Wind speed prediction using tree ensemble

The wind energy has emerged as one of the safest growing renewable energy to address the crisis witnessed in power generation. Wind speed is an important factor in wind power production and integration. However, the complex nature of wind speed limits the dependability and induces high fluctuation in power generation. The accurate prediction of wind speed energy with minimum accepted errors will increase to harness the energy content in a wind efficiently. In recent years, machine learning algorithms are used to analyze and predict data to make better decisions. Ensemble model is one of the supervised machine learning approaches to predict numerical data. In this project, the speed of wind is predicted through XGBoost 4j package in a distributed programming environment of Apache Spark. XGBOOST is a short form of Extreme Gradient Boosting tool of supervised machine learning, where the training data set xi is used to predict a target variable Yi. The results are compared with different iterations in order to minimize the uncertainties and to evaluate the efficiency and accuracy. The main findings were that Ensemble model was the most accurate method.

258. Experimental investigation of the strength of concrete by partial replacement of cement with industrial wastes

Cement the main binding ingredient in concrete is becoming expensive and its production contributing to environmental pollution by emitting CO2 gases that are the main cause of global warming so efforts are being taken to utilize local natural or solid waste resources as a supplementary cementing material.RHA is a by-product of paddy industry, highly reactive pozzolana which is produced by burning rice husk at controlled temperatures. FA is collected from the combustion air-stream exiting the power plant. Fly ash is pozzolanic, which means it’s a siliceous or siliceous-and-aluminous material that reacts with calcium hydroxide to form a cement. WGP Glass is amorphous and contains a large amount of silicon and calcium. Thus it can be claimed that it is pozzolanic or even cementitious in nature even when it is finely ground, waste glass powder is formed from grinding industry by grinding waste glass obtained from lights bulbs, bottles and so on. The details of experimental investigations are done to study the effect of replacing a portion of cement with rice husk ash, fly ash and waste glass powder is reported in this paper. The main aim of this work is to determine the optimum percentage of RHA, FA, and WGP as a partial replacement of cement for the conventional grade of concrete and to study the strength variation in its percentage replacement with RHA, WGP, and FA. The studies conducted on cement concrete reveal that 10% RHA,5 and 5% WGP give optimum results for cement replacement in concrete.

259. Experimental investigation on self-compacting concrete by using fly ash

Self-compacting concrete is a fluid mixture suitable for placing in structures with congested reinforcement without vibration. Self-compacting concrete development must ensure a good balance between deformability and stability. Also, compactibility is affected by the characteristics of materials and the mix proportions; it becomes necessary to evolve a procedure for mix design of SCC. The paper presents an experimental procedure for the design of self-compacting concrete mixes. The test results for acceptance characteristics of self-compacting concrete such as slump flow; J-ring, V-funnel, and L-Box are presented. Further, the compressive strength at the ages of 7, 14, and 28 days was also determined and results are included here.For SSC, it is generally necessary to use superplasticizers in order to obtain high mobility. Adding a large volume of powdered material or viscosity modifying admixture can eliminate segregation. The powdered materials that can be added are flyash, silica fume, lime stone powder, glass filler and quartzite filler. Since self-compactability is largely affected by the characteristics of materials and the mix proportions, it becomes necessary to evolve a procedure for mix design of SCC.

260. Internal migration of construction workers in India: Reference to Chennai city of Tamil Nadu

The migration of labor in the world is not a new phenomenon; it had started in an ancient period and is continuing. The migration labour started moving from one place to another place for the purpose of seeking the job. These labour were placed in unorganized sectors like construction, brick kilns, road, railways, plantation, agriculture, canal work, etc. The human rights of migrant labor are violated in many ways in their workplace. The main causes of migration of these people from one place to another place, poverty are one of the major causes and there is lack of job opportunity and low wage in their own village. These are the major causes of migration people of underdeveloped states like Orissa, Bihar, and Jharkhand. For the eradication of poverty, the government of India has been implemented many programme MGNREGA, SGRY, NSFW, and PDS, but these programmes are not effectively implemented in these states. So the people are migrating one place another place for seeking of the job. For the protection of migrant labour, the government formed legislation. The results were tabulated by using the logistic regression model. The present study had map out the determinants and consequences of migration in Chennai city. The study also introspected the differences between the Tamil Migrants and north Indian migrants in order to map out how far the social capital or economic sociology operates in economic activity which has not been dealt by the previous studies adequately.

265. Securing coding-based cloud storage against pollution attacks

At present Cloud Computing has become a popular computing paradigm. Though Cloud Computing architectures lack support for computer forensic investigations. Inspecting various logs such as process logs, network logs etc plays an important role in computer forensics. Pollution Attack, whereby is an arrangement of noxious substances endeavor to degenerate put away information, are one of the many dangers that influence cloud information security. Pollution attack occurs when along with the data packets, malicious packets are injected into the network. In this paper we manage pollution attack in coding-based square level distributed storage frameworks, i.e. frameworks that utilize straight codes to part, encode, and scatter virtual circle areas over an arrangement of capacity hubs to accomplish wanted levels of repetition and to enhance unwavering quality and accessibility without giving up on execution. Shockingly, the impacts of a pollution attack on straight coding can be unfortunate, since a solitary dirtied piece can proliferate unavoidably in the interpreting stage, along these lines hampering the entire division. The alarm triggers a procedure that locates the polluting nodes using the proposed detection mechanism along with statistical inference. The packets which fail the verification are detected and discarded by considering they are malicious packets or polluted packets in the network. Therefore the pollution in the network is removed before the packets reach the destination. Hence the pollution attack is reduced and this, in turn, will increase the throughput and performance of the data transmitted across the coding based network in cloud storage.

268. Enhancement of E-commerce security using ETSFS algorithm: A Review

Security issues are an important topic in e-commerce. How to protect the security of an e-commerce system and data is its core research area. There are many sensitive financial data and asset data in e-commerce databases, such as transaction records, commercial transactions, user account and market scheme and so on. The data are very important to the parties involved in e-commerce, so we must assure their security completely. To beat these issues, various security strategies have developed to ensure the information in databases. For Example Enhanced Transposition, Substitution, Folding & Shifting (ETSFS). Each of them has its particular benefits and faults. ETSFS provides a high degree of privacy for customers by encrypting payment information. This paper provides a secure and efficient encryption method that encrypts only sensitive data without using special hardware and a mirroring technique to recover the lost data. The purpose of recovery technique is to help the user to retrieve information from any mirror server when server lost his data and unable to provide data to the user. This paper proposes an implementation of the ETSFS algorithm in E-commerce site to make the transaction secure and by using the mirroring technique to recover the data to provide high security to the E-commerce site.

Driving at night is dangerous. High headlight glares can make a driver temporarily blind thereby escalating the chances of fatal accidents. Many factors are considered when analyzing automobile transportation in order to increase safety. One of the most prominent factors for night-time travel is temporary blindness due to elevated headlight intensity. This is particularly prominent on single lane roads. Also, higher speed due to decreased traffic levels at night increases the severity of accidents. Proposed software module masks the high-intensity headlights, preventing temporary blindness that a driver may face and hence improves the view.

271. Determination and effective parameters for drying of Millets

One of the oldest methods used for preservation of fruits, vegetables, millets and other food products to increase their shelf life is drying. Cereals have a significant share in millet production both in the world and china. It acts a source of raw material for many food products. The important parameters of drying includes temperature, velocity and relative humidity. Drying and drying rate curves should be plotted to determine the drying kinetics of the products. Experiments are conducted in a tray dryer using different kinds of millets ( foxtail millet ,little millet, kodo millet )  for various drying temperatures ( 30- 60˚C)  and with different time intervals .The temperature and time are measured and recorded for every 15 minutes. The measured data is used to obtain drying and drying rate curves. The curves indicate that drying process takes place in the falling rate period   If drying is continued, the slope of the curve, the drying rate, becomes less steep (falling rate period) and gradually tends to nearly horizontal at very long times. The product moisture content will become constant at the “equilibrium moisture content“, from the data collected during falling rate period and is calculated. Time and temperature are used as a parameters for the dried millet quality.  It is essential to follow up drying course and to decide whether it is obtained or not by drying processing method. Too long drying course may have bad effects for quality and food safety because of high fermentations and mould growth.  Also, drying to a too low moisture content can result in income losses.

272. Predictive analysis of product search

The rapid increase in internet users along with growing power of online review sites and social media has given birth to Sentiment analysis or Opinion mining, which aims at determining what other people think and comment. Nowadays, several websites are available on which a variety of products are advertised and sold. Prior to making a purchase an online shopper typically browses through several similar products of different brands before reaching a final decision. This seemingly simple information retrieval task actually involves a lot of feature-wise comparisons and decision making, especially since all manufacturers advertise similar features and competitive prices for most products. The proposed system presents a semi-supervised approach for mining online user reviews to generate comparative feature-based statistical summaries that can guide a user in making an online purchase. In this system sentiment analysis of product reviews gives us not only positive and negative reviews but also gives neutral and constructive opinion where the system can suggest some improvement about the product also the result is represented in the graphical and tabular method. Our task is performed in three steps: (1) mining product features that have been commented on by customers; (2) identifying opinion sentences in each review and deciding whether each opinion sentence is positive or negative; (3) summarizing the results. This paper proposes several novel techniques to perform these tasks. Our experimental results using reviews of a number of products sold online to demonstrate the effectiveness of the techniques.

273. Alcohol sensing based engine locking system

In today’s era where we are blessed with fast-moving automobiles which makes our movement easy as well as fast, it also poses a grave danger of accidents and one of the main causes of such fatal accidents is the case of drunken driving where the person loses his control over the automobile and can become a danger to himself and the surroundings. Controlling such cases manually is practically very difficult.
And thus we came up with an idea of controlling such accidents, we in this project have used the idea of gaseous material sensing for sensing the fumes of alcohol in the breath of the person who is driving. As we know that stopping a person from drinking in today’s world is near to impossible so why not stop them from driving after drinking !!!. Our project here will be installed on the steering wheel of the car where the breath of the person driving comes, it will sense the amount of alcohol consumed by him in mg/liter and if the level exceeds then the engine will be stopped and thus decreasing the chance of an accident. This prototype of our can be further modified into a smaller size and with more efficient sensing.

274. Deep learning technique to reduce the volume of missing data

The challenges are learning from data with missing values and finding shared representations for multimodal data to improve inference and prediction. The proposed method uses deep learning technique to reduce the volume of missing data which occur due to low battery and transmission loss. In order to find missing data imputation and new modality prediction, the original incomplete raw data is trained and tested using the stacked autoencoder to predict the corresponding missing value. Deep Multimodal Encoding methods use intra and intermodal learning to compute a new modality prediction. Deep Multimodal Encoding (DME) can achieve a Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) of the missing data imputation which is only 20% of the traditional methods. The performance of Deep Multimodal Encoding is robust to the existence of missing data.

275. Robotic arm control using human interface through color detection

In present times, industries face common obstacles like shortage of time and workers which leads to inefficient production. A feasible solution for this problem can be achieved using robotics. Robots save a lot of time and robots are designed for specific tasks according to one’s needs. Furthermore, we can make use of image processing methods for better results. This paper presents a way to control a robotic arm through detection of a specific color. In this paper, we have proposed a method by which a webcam detects a particular colored-patch attached to a human arm using the color coding techniques in MATLAB. The coordinates of that colored-patch with respect to the video output screen are sent to the microcontroller, which in turn results in the movement of the robotic arm. The process is quick and inexpensive, for individual and industrial applications, thereby increasing the growth of the industry. The robot can be interfaced using various micro-controller, here we have used the Arduino Uno which is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. Arduino controlled robot is interfaced with the computer which mimics hand gestures according to the movement of the colored-patches present on the human arm. The movement of the arm is detected on the basis of the movement of the colored object present on it, using a webcam and MATLAB functions. According to the movement of the arm, the robot, which is being interfaced with the computer, is also moved in desired directions. This results in an inexpensive and effective way for controlling the robot via an interface between the human and the machine.

280. Experimental study of fuel consumption and emission characteristics of the medium-duty vehicle

Currently, fuel consumption of the vehicle rising day by day as a result of increased trip lengths, self-mode transportation and the number of an intersection. Transport is a crucial infrastructure for the development and hence vehicular growth closely follows the trend of urbanization. Several international study and multinational institutions worldwide progress in decarbonizing transport emission from economic growth. When the vehicle waiting for the turn to cross the intersection at the signal, most of the drivers keep the engine off of their vehicle and result in large emission and fuel consumption. This small quantity of fuel worn out aggregated over a number of cycles per day number of the cycle per year and number of intersection result in the massive quantity of fuel. Measuring delay is important in computing the level of service provides to road user at a signal intersection. In India mainly two methods were used to estimate control delay those are field measurement and the artificial measurement. Field measurement of control delay includes the use of test car observation, path tracing of individual vehicles and the recording of arrival and departure volume of the intersection but this expensive for long period. An analytical model of traffic system structure deals with the macroscopic method to study delay measurement. In this paper, the comparison of the actual idling fuel use and emissions with those for restarting by following the ECE-15 cycle and EUDC cycle has been done. This work gives the answer of the question that is how long can you idle in a queue before impacts from idling are greater than they are restarting by considering both the fuel use and emission. This work represents the emission and fuel use are greater for idling over 13 seconds. And also found that the best fuel economy speed is 60 km/hr because the fuel consumption and instantaneous emissions are minimum at 60 km/hr speed.
