1. Fingerprint detection using enhanced minutiae singular point matching technique

Fingerprint matching is the procedure used to decide if two arrangements of unique finger impression edge detail originate from a similar finger. There exist numerous calculations that do unique mark coordinating from multiple points of view. A few techniques include coordinating details focuses between the two pictures, while others search for likenesses in the greater structure of the unique finger impression. In this proposed work, we propose a method for fingerprint matching based on singular point minutiae matching technique. The term "minutia" is used to refer to small ridge details found in fingerprints; most often, they are termed as main points described on ridge structures. Minutiae pi and qi are considered to coordinate if their traits are inside a certain Limit.

2. Experimental study on waste foundry sand and steel slag concrete

Generation of waste foundry sand as by-product of metal casting industries causes environmental problems because of its improper disposal. Thus, its usage in building material, construction and in other fields is essential for reduction of environmental problems. Similarly, in foundries (where the ferrous and non-ferrous metals are melted.), the slag is produced after the completion of the melting process it can also be used as a building material, construction and in other fields. This research is carried out to produce low-cost and eco-friendly concrete. This paper demonstrates the use of waste foundry sand as a partial replacement by fine aggregate and slag is as coarse aggregate in concrete. An experimental investigation is carried out on concrete containing waste foundry sand in the range of 0%, 20 %, 40% by weight and slag is fully replaced (100%) for M-25 grade concrete (OPC). The material was produced, tested and compared with conventional concrete in terms of workability and strength. These tests were carried on a standard cube of size 150mm×150mm×150mm for 7, 14 and 28 days to determine the mechanical properties of concrete.

7. Forward secure ID based ring signature for data sharing

Cloud computing provides services where one can access information from any place, from anywhere, at any time. So basically cloud computing is subscription based service where one can obtain network storage space and computer resources for data storage as well as data sharing. Due to high fame of cloud for data storage and sharing, a large number of participants gets attracted to it. The security is the biggest concern for the adoption of the cloud. The major issues in this regard are efficiency, data integrity, privacy, and authentication. In order to handle these issues concept of a ring, the signature has been introduced for data sharing amongst a large number of users. Ring signatures are used to provide user’s anonymity and signer’s privacy. But the expensive certificate verification within the ancient Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) setting becomes a bottleneck for this solution to be scalable. ID-based ring signature had been introduced which eliminates the process of certificate verification. Further enhancement of security with forwarding security concept has been introduced. According to this idea, if a secret key of any user has been compromised; all previously generated signatures that embrace this user still stay valid. This property is very vital to any giant scale knowledge sharing system because it is not possible to raise all knowledge data owners to re-authenticate their data whether or not a secret key of 1 single user has been compromised. Thus we propose a secure ID-based ring signature with forwarding security.

37. ATM- Security using machine learning technique in IoT

The idea of designing and implementation of the real-time ATM security project came with the incidents of accessing the ATM by the unauthorized users instead of an authorized user. This project will give access to the user only after identifying the image of the user taken by the CCTV in the ATM and compare the identified image with the image of the user that was stored in the database created during the account creation which comes under the banking session of banks. In some cases the authorized user is not able to use the ATM for some emergency purposes, in such cases, the OTP is sent to the users registered mobile number and the person who came instead of the authorized user have to enter the OTP that the authorized user received. This method will reduce the risk of ATM usage by common people. The face detection and face recognition are done using deep learning techniques and machine learning. The IOT components like Camera, RFID reader, Tag, Relay, Motor were used. The Raspberry pi 3 (2015 version) is used as the main component. Here the open CV is used as the platform and the python language is used for the deep learning techniques and face detection Haar cascade is used for face detection. The face recognition module is done by Local Binary Patterns (LBP) algorithm. And an alert message is sent to the authorized user as a text message if the user is found to be the third party user.

42. Patient health monitoring system

Health is one of the primary capabilities that a human need to go on with his life. That is the main reason the healthcare provided to the human must be bestowed in ample means and effective ways to ensure his health based on health monitoring parameters and the medical assistance being provided directly. The new technological development and its implementation now involve the internet and the sensors often known as the Internet of Things (IoT), which enables the worldwide approach to the health care base system development. This steers to the health system management that in a real-time approach it supplies a set of particulars relevant to the patient being monitored. In all the countries the death rates are becoming high due to the absence of well-timed medical treatments. These can be shut out through standard health care. The paper puts forward an IoT approach for a superior health monitoring system, by involving the sensors where they sense the body temperature plus the heartbeat and tells the doctor or the attending staff of the patient about the state of the patient. The project uses the KNN algorithm to predict the shape and condition of the sufferer to prevent them from going into further bad state. When the bad condition of the patient is predicted and detected by the system, it sends mail to the doctor in the most emergency situation or else in other cases it keeps on updating the sensed values in the web page created. The system also includes a buzzer beeping situation, where the beeping occurs when the nurse has to be notified of the state of the patient. Whereas, the previous systems developed did not do the predicting part, which plays the most important role in taking care of the patient. Thus, the project results in taking the greatest possible measure in helping the patients improve their situation.

44. Sensor design system and power adjustment of transmitter in FSO communication

The main problem related to FSO communication is atmospheric attenuation. To cope with such problem and maintain a dedicated connection, the transmitter power has to be adjusted continuously depending upon the weather condition of that particular time. Here we propose a design where we utilize the precipitation detection sensor and visibility sensor of ASOS. The weather conditions are detected using these sensors and some statistical data collected over time. Each condition provides some set of rules and equations which interlinks the power of receiver and transmitter. The transmitter if operated on such equation would yield the maximum efficiency. This results in power saving of the model. An automatic power device for FSO could be designed. In the below-discussed idea, we strictly restrict ourselves on atmospheric attenuation domain. Other factors like pointing Loss, Free space loss, Divergence loss are not taken into consideration. To take these issues into consideration, calculations have to be complex. While designing a real model, these factors would be taken as an important factor of attenuation too. Here Noise Equivalent Power and transmission power equation have been proposed which has visibility as a variable.

50. Weather adaptive traffic prediction and analysis of accidents using machine learning algorithms

Predicting traffic flow is one of the fundamental needs for comfortable travel, but this task is challenging in vehicular cyber-physical systems because of ever-increasing uncertain traffic big data. Although live data with outstanding performance recently have become popular, most existing models for traffic flow prediction are fully deterministic and shed no light on data uncertainty. Also, they are many inventories in automobile industries to design and build safety measures for automobiles, but traffic accidents are unavoidable. There is a huge number of accidents prevailing in all urban areas. In this study, a novel dynamic approach is proposed for predicting citywide traffic flow based on weather. The proposed system utilizes the neuro-wavelet algorithm to select the required features for traffic prediction. The system also proposes the K Nearest Neighbor algorithm to predict the accuracy of accidents occurred in urban regions.

51. Exploring the relative predictive efficiencies of spatial regression models

Spatial regression models are standard tools for analyzing data with spatial correlation. These models are broadly used in the social sciences for predicting the socio-economic factors. In this paper, we discuss about various spatial regression models and explain the concepts based on real data to demonstrate how to obtain and interpret relevant results. We describe prediction efficiencies of various predictors relative to the efficient minimum mean square error predictor in spatial models containing spatial lags in both the dependent variable and the error term. We consider Multiple Linear Regression Model (MLRM), Spatial Autoregressive Models (SAR), Spatial Autoregressive in the Error-term Model (SEM) and Spatial Durbin Models (SDMs) to estimate the literacy progress in the districts in Odisha as a result of changing socio-economic factors over time. The goodness of fit of the different models are compared along series of hypotheses about the performance of the specifications considering spatial relationships among the observations. The spatial analysis proved the existence of positive spatial autocorrelation and persistence of disparities in literacy attainment level across the regions during the analyzed period. The results of econometric analysis confirmed the expected positive impact of economic growth on literacy progress level as well as the necessity to incorporate the spatial dimension into the model.

The share market has been a field of vast interest both for those who wish to make money by trading shares in the share market. Generally, there is an opinion about share markets like high risk and high returns. Even though we have a huge number of potential investors, only very few of them are invested in the share market. The main purpose is they are not able to take risk of taking the skill of investors. Though get low returns they want to save their money. One important reason for this problem is that they don’t have proper guidance for making their portfolio. In this paper we focus the real-world problem; we had selected three indices such as SENSEX, NIFTY. The analysis is purely based on the data collected from the past three years. The Data mining technique, Time series interpretation is applied for the Data analysis to show the ups and downs of a particular index. The correlation and Beta are the tools which give the suggestion about the share and its risk. The correlation tool is used to identify the relationship between the index and the company individually. This Beta is used to identify the risk associated with the share.

69. Bunch ensemble with averaged co-association matrix maximizing the expected margin

The problem considered is cluster analysis with the usage of the ensemble approach. The paper proposes a method for finding optimal weights for the averaged co-association matrix applied to the construction of the ensemble partition. The main idea is to find such weights for which the expectation of ensemble margin takes its maximum value. A latent variable pairwise classification model is used for determining margin characteristics dependent on cluster validity indices. To construct the ensemble partition, we apply a minimum spanning tree found on the averaged co-association matrix as an adjacency matrix. The efficiency of the method is confirmed by Monte-Carlo simulations with artificial data sets.

We present a new efficient approach for detecting tumor of cancer in the human body based on a recently published discrete orthonormal space-frequency transform known as the DOST. We develop a frequency-domain implementation of the DOST in two dimensions for the case of dyadic frequency sampling. This manual detection may have chances of false detection. So a computerized method for cancer detection is needed. A feature selection algorithm based on statistical two-sample t-test method is used for the selection of significant coefficients from the high dimensional DOST(Discrete Orthonormal Stockwell Transform) coefficients. The selected significant coefficients are used as features for the classification of human body tumor as benign or malignant.

This paper purposed an image based steganography that uses the Least Significant Bits (LSB) techniques and pseudo-random encoding technique on images to enhance the security of the communication. In the L-SB approach, the fundamental thought is to replace the Least Significant Bits (LSB) of the cover picture with the Bits of the messages to be covered up without pulverizing the property of the cover image significantly. The LSB-based method is the most difficult one as it is hard to separate between the cover-object and stego-object if few LSB bits of the cover are replaced. In Pseudo-Random technique, an arbitrary key is utilized as a seed for the Pseudo-Random Number Generator is required in the inserting procedure. Both the systems utilized a stego-key while installing messages inside the cover picture. By utilizing the key, the chance of getting attacked by the attacker is reduced.

81. Semantic text analysis using machine learning

As the amount of information on the World Wide Web grows, it becomes increasingly burdensome to and just what we want. While general-purpose search engines such as Ask.com and Bing high coverage, they often provide only low precision compared to others, even for detailed and relative queries. When we know that we want information about a certain type, or on a certain topic, a domain-specific search engine can be a powerful tool. Like www.campsearch.com allows complex queries over summer camps by age-group, size, location, and cost. Domain-specific search engines are becoming increasingly popular because they increase accuracy not possible with general, Web-wide search engines. Unfortunately, they are also burdensome and time-consuming to maintain. In this paper, we use machine learning techniques to greatly automate the creation and maintenance of domain-specific search. It describes new research in semi-supervised learning, text classification, and information extraction. We have built a demonstration system using these technics like Web Scrapping, Fuzzy C-Means and Hierarchy Clustering for a search engine which gives accurate results which is a more advantage when compared to other Search engines. Searching with a traditional, general purpose search engine would be extremely tedious or impossible to perform search operations. For this basis, domain-specific search engines are becoming popular. This article mainly concentrated on Project an effort to automate many aspects of creating and maintaining domain-specific search engines by using machine learning techniques. These techniques permit search engines to be created quickly with less effort and are suited for re-use across many domains.

In this topic, an attempt has been made to utilize glass powder, which is a waste of glass industry. The research work is a determination of the effect of the use of Glass powder as a replacement of cement to assess the pozzolanic nature of fine glass powder when mixed in concrete and compare the difference in performance with other pozzolanic materials are mixed in concrete like silica fume and fly ash. The concrete in place of cement to some extent i.e., 10%, 20%, 30% and mechanical properties of M40 (Design Mix) are investigated. Cube specimen of 36 numbers were cast, cured and tested for 3, 7, and 28 days strength. Compression was conducted and the results were compared. The finding revealed an increase in compressive strength with the increase in the replacement of cement by Glass powder. To reduce the demand for cement, glass powder decreases the unit weight as well as the porosity as indicated by a decrease in water absorption. It reduces the quantity of cement to be used in concrete. Also, glass powder is proved to be economical and is considered an environmentally friendly construction material.

The development of the world today has largely been achieved through the increasingly efficient and extensive use of various forms of energy. Over the past decades, the growth in energy consumption around the world has shown that fossil fuel energy source alone will not be capable of meeting future energy demands. With the increase in fossil fuel consumptions, more and more industrial activities produce an increasing amount of waste heat. Energy generated as a result of industrial activities that are not practically utilized is referred to as industrial waste heat. Several studies have shown that the specific amount of industrial waste heat is poorly measured, it is estimated that 25 to 55% of the input energy in industries are actually used while the remaining are discharged as waste heat.

94. Optical wireless data transmission with Vigenere cipher encryption

The project is designed to share data with high frequency. And ultimately establish communication as secure as possible. For secure communication, the data is send using encoded form so the unauthorized user can’t access the data and if he receive data then data will be in the encoded format. So it’s of no use to an unauthorized user. This paper is based on the concept of Li-fi. Here, transmitted data are encrypted by a Vigenere cipher algorithm in order to ensure secured optical communication. Further, the encrypted data is decrypted on the receiver portion. In today's digitalized era, for the proper functioning of our daily professional life, we need effective communication. Whereas the limitations like low bandwidth and data rate in Wi-Fi, Microwave and RF along with EMI interference hampers the interactions. The Optical Wireless Data Transmission overcomes the above limitations. This innovative and new technology provides high-speed wireless access that offers significantly greater data capacity than Wi-Fi along with inherent security properties that eliminate unwanted external network intrusion. For security purpose, a secured encryption system has been designed based on the Vigenere Cipher technique which is impossible to break. The project consists of an LED at the transmitter section to transmit encrypted data which can be received at the receiver using the IR sensor by any angle with high reliability. In addition, the integration of wireless data transfer along with encryption generates a measurable reduction in both infrastructure complexity and energy consumption

95. Three-dimensional performance analysis of wavy fin tube heat exchangers in laminar flow regime

The current study is focused on two fin configurations, the wavy-fin in-line and the wavy-fin staggered. These two fin configurations are numerically investigated in both staggered and in-lined tube layouts. Heat transfer and pressure drop characteristics of the heat exchanger are investigated for Reynolds numbers ranging from 200 to 2000. Model validation is carried out by comparing the simulated case friction factor (f) and Colburn factor (j) with the experimental data of Bhuiyan et al. [2013]. In this study the effect of geometrical parameters such as fin pitch, longitudinal pitch and transverse pitch of tube spacing are studied. Results are presented in the form of friction factor (f) and Colburn factor (j). This study reveals that the flow distinction between plain and wavy fin has a profound influence on the heat transfer and flow friction performance of these configurations when compared on the basis of tube layouts. For laminar flow conditions heat transfer and friction factor decrease with the increase of longitudinal and transverse pitches of tube spacing whereas they increase with fin pitches for both in-line and staggered configurations.

96. Thermodynamic analysis of organic Rankine cycle with different working fluids

An ORC is a suitable means of carrying out this purpose. The ORC works with a high molecular mass organic working fluid with the characteristic of having a phase change of liquid to vapor occurring at a temperature which is lower than the phase change of water to steam for a given pressure. The recovery of low-grade heat can be achieved using organic fluids. These low-grade heat sources can be from biomass energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, and industrial waste. This work presents an analysis of the organic Rankine cycle (ORC) using R143a, R600a, R134a, and RC318 as working fluids under constant external conditions. An EES program has been developed to parametrically compare the first and second law efficiencies and turbine size factor with an increase in turbine entry temperature, heat source temperature, turbine efficiency and pinch point temperature difference.

98. SentiPhraseNet: An extended SentiWordNet approach for Telugu sentiment analysis

Sentimental Analysis in English language is a relatively easier task to perform as it has a predefined set of rules followed and accepted universally. But, when it comes to Indian languages, there isn’t a benchmark dataset. Moreover, if a data set exists, it cannot be validated as a similar sentence may differ in the meaning as the regional languages are very unpredictable and have no proper rules. In this paper, we used a Rule-Based Approach to build SentiPhraseNet. Here, we obtained the sentiment using SentiPhraseNet and validated the results using ACTSA which is an annotated corpus data set.

105. Qualitative data analysis on contextual advertisements

The internet advertising market is growing day by day much faster than any other advertising platform. The technology and methods used for advertising online go more and more towards automated processes that analyze the content of the page and then matches the ads with these parameters. Advertisers in web pages like Facebook and LinkedIn have some preferred set of users they wish to reach by showing their ads. Some sites offer fine-grained sets of user characteristics – including their career, wealth, education information, etc — that advertisers can specify for targeting their audience, and each of these characteristics requires different amounts of money for targeting. Generating contextual advertisements for websites is a problem of growing interest. The recent $240 million investment by Microsoft in Facebook clearly reaffirms the opportunity in contextual advertising for online social networks. Content-contextual advertisement programs such as Google AdSense and Yahoo Contextual Match work by automatically spotting keywords in web pages and displaying ads based on the keywords. The displayed ads are also referred to as Contextual Advertisements. Contextual advertising allows advertisers to display ads relevant to the content of the website rather than using the data about the visitor. Contextual ads can complement the content. Contextual ads are very effective for particular kinds of content. Some studies indicate they can increase click-through rate by 63%. These ads are generally represented by a URL along with a textual description that is also used to match the ad with the target page. User activity on venues such as forums, marketplaces, and groups on social networking sites are excellent targets for monetization.

106. Developing an advanced smart parking system using IoT

Internet of Things (IoT) plays an important role in connecting the surrounding things of an environment to the network and provides easy access from the remote location. It is essential that the people should be update along with the growing technology. In a present world, there are numerous number of vehicles owned by the people. Due to this large number of vehicles, there will be a lot of discomfort for parking of a vehicle at public places such as shopping complexes, function halls, and cinema theatres. In such places it is very difficult to find an vacant place to park the vehicle, even though it is a paid facility along with the security guard. In this study we design an Advanced Smart Parking System (ASPS) which identifies the vehicle and displays an empty slot on the display at the entrance gate of the parking. So that the person will know whether there is any availability or not before entering into the parking place. This system of design also provides the shortest path from the entrance gate to the assigned parking slot by showing the directions through LED’s. This process of implementation does not involve human interaction except the payment collection.

112. Review on haze removal technique using advanced dark channel prior filter

This paper reviews and correlates various haze removal techniques to improve the atmospheric light estimation because the intensity of the dark channel is a rough approximation of the thickness of the haze. Images of outdoor scenes are usually degraded by the turbid medium (e.g., particles, water-droplets) in the atmosphere. Haze, fog, and smoke are such phenomena due to atmospheric absorption and scattering. The irradiance received by the camera from the scene point is attenuated along the line of sight. Furthermore, the incoming light is blended with the air light. The degraded images lose the contrast and color fidelity. In poor weather condition, fog removal from an image is an unavoidable problem. Various methods of fog removal have been described in literature. Initially, methods using multiple images which included the use of polarization filter. This method suffers from high time complexity and requirement of multiple images, resulting in non-suitability to real-time applications. This leads to the development of single image fog removal technique such as Dark Channel Prior (DCP), Improved Dark Channel Prior (IDCP), Dark channel prior with Histogram Specification, Anisotropic Diffusion and Improved Dark Channel Prior using Guided Filter. In proposed method, the dark channel is used to improve the atmospheric light estimation because the intensity of the dark channel is a rough approximation of the thickness of the haze. This property is used to estimate the transmission and the atmospheric light. A number of techniques has been proposed by various researchers to improve the atmospheric light estimation and to calculate air-light. The main intent of this review paper is to study and compare the distinct techniques of haze removal along with its drawbacks

113. Experimental investigation of clayey sand with plastic gunny bag as reinforcement

The soil which is generally weak and possesses high deformation values in vast areas are covered with soil deposits having low shear strength and high compressibility. Clayey sands (SC) mostly tend to exhibit high liquid limit (LL) and plastic limit (PL). The technique of combining any two materials of different strengths to form a composite single material of greater strength is the frequent procedure followed in civil engineering practice. The soil is quite good in compression and weak in tension can’t bear the load alone. When a material of high tensile strength is introduced in the soil as a reinforcing material, the soil turns into a composite material and tends to possess relatively very high strength and attains the ability to carry loads of heavyweights. Reinforced earth is a technique primarily used to increase the ease of construction and cost-effectiveness. Keeping in view the research findings outlined about, in the present experimentation, it was carried out to investigate the efficacy of plastic gunny bags stabilizing the weak soil, thereby, improving the shear strength and bearing capacity of the soil. A systematic methodical process followed involving experimentations in the laboratory under controlled conditions. It was observed that 1cm thickness and 0.03mm thickness of plastic gunny bags with clayey sand effectively improved the shear strength and bearing capacity of the soil.

Most of the vehicles use a brake disk and brake pad system to stop the vehicle. Brake pad wear is a very important parameter in this system it has a direct effect on the braking performance of the vehicle. A machine learning approach, without using any intrinsic properties like the coefficient of friction of the brake pad material or the area of the brake pads or the composition of the brake pad material, has been proposed. The braking performance of the vehicle is reflected in its stopping distance and hence it is essential to relate the stopping distance and the brake pad wear. The same has been proposed in this document.

117. Luminance-chrominance-gradient high dynamic range imaging with improved bitonic filter tone mapping technique

In this paper, we will discuss a new process for High-Dynamic-Range Imaging. In contrast to the traditional method, we are processing the High-Dynamic-Range imaging process in luminance-chrominance-gradient space rather than RGB space. The main motive is to get the more efficient technique and also to avoid color-distortion generating from three different color channels. We introduced a camera responsive function for luminance channel so that we can find out the HDR luminance. On the other hand, for chrominance channels, we introduced weighting in relation to the saturation level. Our technique produces more natural tone-mapped images with more information. Once the luminance, chrominance, and gradient values are extracted from the image, based on logarithmic of the luminance value, the tone mapping technique approximates the appearance of the HDR image. In local tone mapping, there is a detail loss, artifact and higher computation time because of the tone mapping technique. To increase the image quality and to increase the performance of tone mapping is the main idea of the research. Improved Bitonic Tone Mapping (IBTM) is a new technique proposed for efficient tone mapping. In this method, edges have high weights than flat surfaces and a weight factor is added to the bitonic filter. When compared to different tones mapping algorithms like Reinhard, Drago, Exposure, and Gamma, Local adoption etc. shows that from the proposed technique we can achieve higher performance.

The IoT integrate heterogeneous end system, which provides open access to a large selected set of information for the advancement of digital service. To surveil the safety of high rise buildings and the small deform of surroundings by contaminants are a pivotal task. We should ensure the fire safety, safety from excessive loads, vibrations, etc…. and it is essential to observe the strength of the clear-cut constructions in the event of infrastructures and we should ensure the environmental changes around us because of natural changes in the habitat. In recent years, a major consideration should be given to framework health monitoring technology to Diagnose condition of the framework using a sensor attached to them, and the number of research projects on the health monitoring of architectural structures is on the rise. If life-cycle cost is to be reduced for the building from fabrication to sustainment, much attention should be given to strength of the building. The detecting issues on the crack and pollution in the buildings play a major role in our project. Cracks can significantly increase the rate of gas and liquid transport into a structure. Although there is a general awareness that cracking can be caused when the building is not that much strength to face external issues. The cause of the cracking is important as it may have profound implications on the crack morphology, which can greatly influence the relative contribution to transport and the subsequent impact on overall performance. Prevention is better than cure, we need to be alert before the pollution level crosses the safer limits and to monitor the building before the arrival of distracts.

Several studies show that dental procedures especially in case of gingivitis, peri-apical lesions and periodontitis with inflamed periodontal tissues or infected pocket epithelium surrounding the teeth may be a cause of bacterial invasion through the bloodstream and resulting in Infective endocarditis which is a severe disease that may affect the heart valves or the endocardium. The most common bacteria responsible for bacterial endocarditis are alpha-hemolytic streptococci like Streptococcus viridians but oral pathogens like Eikenella corrodens, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Capnocytophaga, and Lactobacillus species can cause bacterial endocarditis. In this review, we searched the United States National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health (PubMed) to make out all articles that included the terms endocarditic, prophylaxis, oral or dental in the title. Several published sources of information relating to dental procedures, bacteremia, and infective endocarditis were reviewed. This review is focused on the patients that need prophylactic antibiotics and the recommended antibiotics for adults and children for dental procedures in which the prophylaxis is necessary. Antibiotic prophylaxis is indicated for patients with prosthetic cardiac valve, history of infective endocarditis, distinct Congenital Heart Diseases (CHD) and Cardiac transplant recipients with cardiac valvular disease. The most important pathogen responsible for endocarditis during dental procedures is S viridans (alpha-hemolytic streptococci). Antibiotic regimens for endocarditis prophylaxis are used against S viricians, and the recommended standard prophylactic regimen is a single dose of oral amoxicillin. For patients with high cardiac risk, antibiotic prophylaxis is recommended for all dental procedures like manipulation of gingival tissue or the periapical area of teeth or perforation of the oral mucosa.

129. Maximize lifetime of Wireless Sensor Network by optimal sink deployment and sensor to sink routing

Wireless sensor networks typically contain hundreds of sensors. The sensors collect data and relay it to sinks through single hop or multiple hop paths. Sink deployment significantly influences the performance of a network. Since the energy capacity of each sensor is limited, optimizing sink deployment and sensor-to-sink routing is crucial. In this paper, this problem is modeled as a mixed integer optimization problem. Then, a novel layer-based diffusion particle swarm optimization method is proposed to solve this large-scale optimization problem. In particular, two sensor-to-sink binding algorithms are combined as inner layer optimization to evaluate the fitness values of the solutions. Particle swarm optimization constitutes currently one of the most important routing algorithms. Its popularity has stimulated the emergence of various variants of swarm-inspired techniques, based in part on the concept of pairwise communication of numerous swarm members solving the optimization problem in hand. PSO is a population-based optimization method. PSO consists of a swarm of particles which move towards an optimal solution of the problem. Particle uses their position and velocities (P Best & G Best) to find an optimal route. This paper show better result of Maximizing lifetime of wireless sensor networking by using PSO routing Fully Informed Particle Swarm Optimization (FIPSO) and Diffusion PSO Performance of those algorithms is also evaluated over a set of benchmark instances Compared to existing methods that the sinks are selected from candidate positions, our method can achieve better performance since they can be placed freely within a geometrical plane. Several numerical examples are used to validate and demonstrate the performance of our method. The reported numerical results show that our method is superior to those existing. Furthermore, our method has good scalability which can be used to deploy a large-scale sensor network.

130. Bus tracking system using Android and web application

Transportation becomes very difficult in cities like Mumbai. The public transports, especially BUSES are developing around the globe. Such public transports reduce the usage of personal vehicles so reducing fuel consumption and mollifying traffic congestion. The problem with BUSES is that the commuters DO NOT know the exact temporal arrangement of the arrival of BUSES at their stops. This leads to looking ahead to BUSES for 30-35 minutes because the commuters are not aware of what time exactly the BUS is to arrive. The approximate arrival time of BUSES is known but there could also be a delay in arrival thanks to traffic. Seeing that people started avoiding public transports and started victimization non-public vehicles, many applications were developed; but these applications were unable to mitigate the problems. Some applications provided only the arrival time and point in time of BUSES at their supply and destination. Some of them provided time-tables, but even they weren't correct as they failed to contemplate the delay thanks to unpredictable factors like – traffic, harsh weather situation, etc. The timetables were not timely updated leading to waiting for BUSES.

131. Anomaly detection in code base

Any product when under development, goes through numerous changes before finally being released to the customer. While these changes are being done, it adds new features, modifies existing ones. How do we know if a product is in good shape to be released? Yes, we test the product, run the existing unit, functional, performance tests etc. What if the number of tests is in 10000s. How do we analyse each test result? Is there an automated way to detect the overall health of the product using the results of regression tests? Anomaly Detection using machine learning algorithms gives us a way to find out the overall health of the product. Using Anomaly Detection, we can quickly find out about the code base and if new changes should be allowed in before the existing code base is stabilized. It helps to determine, how far the existing code base is away from being released to the customer. It can help the code base to be almost always stable irrespective of the number of code changes that are merged into it.

135. 3D reconstruction of regular objects from multiple 2D images using a reference object

The dimensional analysis of an object from an image reduces a lot of burden for a user, like the traditional measuring tape method. Using the dimensions will make reconstruction of the 3D model of the real-time object easier. However, this method is not used in the current implementation. Dimensional analysis can also be helpful in online shopping where the user’s availability for fitting is not possible. 3D model replaces the fitting stage in online shopping. Once the dimensions of an object’s surface are found, it is easy to calculate surface areas, given surface areas we can calculate volume. But the calculation of volume requires more than one dimension of the object. In this paper, an approach using a reference object, whose real-time dimensions are already known is used. The whole process is divided into three tasks - Object detection using SURF algorithm, Dimensional Analysis of the 2D object using pixel per metric ratio given that there is a reference object on the same plane and 3D reconstruction using Structure from Motion algorithm.

136. Secure distributed cloud service using trusted third party

Cloud storage is a system with a distributed data center that takes advantage of virtualization technology and provides an interface for data storage. It makes servers or data centers able to work together for conveniently sharing and accessing resources. Enterprise cloud user demand that there is a secure supply chain and that every step in that supply chain can be verified in real-time and when things go wrong it is more possible to figure out what went wrong and that there is someone who can be held accountable. Before storing data to an untrusted cloud server, some measures should be adopted to guarantee the security of data. However, the communication overhead will increase when users transmit files encrypted by traditional encryption schemes. Remote data integrity checking enables a data storage server to prove to a verifier that it is actually storing a data owner’s data honestly. We use Hadoop file system to provide high throughput access to user data. If the semi-honest cloud server does not delete the data honestly and returns an incorrect deletion result, the misbehavior of the cloud server can be detected by the data owner with an overwhelming probability. The user cannot deny after requiring the cloud server to delete the data. This implies that the proposed scheme can support traceability.

147. Achieving secure file download by traffic and energy saving encrypted search technique and generate key image using BVCS

Cloud Computing is a model of Internet-based computing where resources like storage space, online software are provided by different cloud service providers to different types of cloud users who need cloud services. When a cloud user outsources the data on cloud, it has to provide more security for outsourced data preventing data manipulated or accessed by unauthorized users. To maintain data integrity, each and every cloud service has to be stored securely. For easier accessing of files and to generate file indexes, each file is stored in cloud server. Now cloud users search files and again send download request to cloud server. This process is time consuming and also there is a chance that the cloud service provider might access those files which is stored in the cloud server, because both the encrypted file with correspondent keys and file indexes are stored in cloud server. To overcome these problems, this system introduces storage nodes for storing file indexes and encrypted files and cloud server stores files keys. When a cloud user uploads file, the file index is generated automatically and file is encrypted by using AES algorithm with automatically generated key. After that by Visual cryptography scheme, the key is converted into image and then generated as key image and source images respectively. The encrypted file and the file indexes are stored in storage node, key and source image are stored in cloud server and key image is passed to file owner. Whenever file owner or file users want to download or access files then perform search and then put key image as an input. If valid, it matches the key with the source image and later it can be downloaded.

149. Design and analysis of velocity profile of air in engine inlet manifold

This project deals with the improvement of the performance and to achieve the even distribution of flow at each cylinder, to select the best turbulence model for the analysis of intake manifold using computational fluid dynamics, to achieve the maximum mass flow rate through the runners. To achieve the even flow of distribution and improve the volumetric efficiency, we divided his analysis into four different parts. In each part, a different iteration of inlet manifold used in Maruti Gypsy’s G13BB engine is used. In this analysis, plenum size is only changed in small values to show the effects of the shape of runners on output. Dividing the work into four different parts provide the greater refinement in the result. Runner shape is determined by the operating conditions of the engine assembly in which the inlet manifold is used. The intake runner diameter influences the point at which peak power is reached while the intake runner length will influence the amount of power available at high and low RPM. To find the best results, we perform the experiments in Ansys Fluent for possible designs and find the effect of curved and branched runners were providing higher volumetric efficiency and even flow of distribution to each cylinder. For designing final intake manifold we select the best design from all four parts and perform the experiment using computational fluid dynamics software Ansys Fluent. This project work brings the design concept and analysis method of “DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF VELOCITY PROFILE OF AIR IN ENGINE INLET MANIFOLD”.

159. Performance analysis of Vortex tube refrigeration system

This paper represents the experimentation of the Vortex Tube Refrigeration system. Vortex tube also known as Ranque-Hilsch Vortex tube. A Vortex Tube is a Mechanical Device, which generates cold and hot streams from a single injection of pressurized gas. Without any moving parts or chemical reaction within the tube, the intersecting phenomenon of energy separation results only from fluid dynamic effects. The Control valve is a screw located at the hot end and cold end with thread on it which is used to restrict the flow of air due to which the small forced vortex takes place after stagnation point and free vortex get away through the hot end as hot air and cold end as cold air. At the other end small orifice plate is located to further reduce the temperature Drop. The 2.5 HP compressor is used for experimentation for low pressures. Also, for higher pressures it is difficult with a low capacity compressor to get the accurate results. For this purpose, a model has been developed using experimental data to predict the results for the pressure range of 1to 6 bar. We have attached Thermo-electric module to system to generate electricity without affecting the efficiency of the system.

161. Particulate emission control and direct carbon dioxide capture

The atmosphere is one of the valuable resources which needs to be protected for future generation. It’s being increasingly polluted every year. In the past 10 years the air in the many regions of our country such as Delhi, Mumbai is seriously polluted. Due to modernization and development, the use of automobiles was increased which emit harmful exhaust toxic gases with particulate emission. The level of CO2 content in the atmosphere was increased up to 410 ppm. In the meantime, CO2 is also the raw products for many industries such as food processing industries, Pharmaceutical industries, fire extinguishers etc. We have conducted experiments to capture carbon dioxide from direct air. This process is carried out using a carbon absorbent solution made to react with atmospheric air in the reaction chamber in which carbon dioxide present in the air directly captured in the absorbent solution. Air is constituents of various gases. Here we discussed in capturing the carbon from the air. Direct air capture is leading technology to capture CO2 from the air. Here various concentrations of solutions are made to effective capture of carbon dioxide. In addition, Electrostatic precipitator is implemented to control the particulate emission. It holds the small micro dust particles up to 2.5 PM. The operation performs in controlling particulate and capturing carbon dioxide from the air.

163. Food adulteration prediction using data mining algorithms

Major food adulteration and contamination events seem to occur with some regularity, such as the widely publicized adulteration of milk products with melamine.With globalization and rapid distribution systems, these can have international impacts with far-reaching and sometimes lethal consequences. These events, though potentially global in the modern era, are in fact far from contemporary, and deliberate adulteration of food products is probably as old as the food processing and production systems themselves. This review first introduces some background into these practices, both historically and contemporary, before introducing a range of the technologies currently available for the detection of food adulteration and contamination. These methods include the vibrational spectroscopies: near-infrared, mid-infrared etc. This subject area is particularly relevant at this time, as it not only concerns the continuous engagement with food adulterers, but also more recent issues such as food security, bioterrorism, and climate change. It is hoped that this introductory overview acts as a springboard for researchers in science, technology, engineering, and industry, in this era of systems-level thinking and interdisciplinary approaches to new and contemporary problems. In food safety and regulation, there is a need for a system to be able to make predictions on which adulterants are likely to appear in which food products. The aim is to identify the minimum detectable limit for the adulterants in milk. There are many adulterants that are added to milk including water, flour, starch and even urea in quantitative measures making it undetectable. MATLAB was used to write the algorithm code.

At Lonar Crater on the northern side, near the water body, the base part of the temples submerged in the waters which were never exposed for the last 22 years due to constant rise of water level, are now exposed due to decrease of water level to a large extent, debris of rocks of unknown origin are found to be covered by a white layer. To investigate in detail whether the white layer on these rocks near the temples otherwise found to be submerged in the waters of Lonar crater and now exposed, are of SiO₂ (silica) origin or NaCl (common salt, sea salt) origin, or any other component, a search was conducted to find the source, its origin and the cause for these phenomena through this study. Representative samples of these rocks from debris near the temple towards north side of the crater was collected and stored in a polythene bag for further investigation. XRF analysis carried out of two rocks of both sides i.e., of sample No. 1, white layered part 16 elements with their oxides were detected of which CaO (Calcium Oxide i.e., quicklime) – 76.000% being the major content and others such as Fe₂O₃, SiO₂, Al₂O₃, MgO etc., in minor quantities. Similarly of sample No.2, the white layered part showed that 16 elements with their oxides were detected of which CaO – 85.900%, being the major content, and others such as SiO₂, MgO, Al₂O₃, SO₃, Fe₂O₃, P₂O₅ etc., in minor quantities. The original rocks i.e., the black part of both the samples showed that major component was SiO₂, Al₂O₃, Fe₂O₃, CaO, MgO, and TiO₂, with other components in minor quantities. For the first time such a high percentage of CaO (Calcium Oxide i.e., quicklime) has been detected which is found to be deposited on the surface of debris of rocks near the temples on the northern side of the crater. White rusting/white coating of SiO₂ (Silica) has been observed and reported by Jadhav and Mali. This work being of preliminary investigation, a search was conducted to know the cause and how CaO (Calcium Oxide i.e., quicklime) found in such a high percentage deposited on the rocks or the rocks were found to be coated or encapsulated by a white layer of CaO and to record and document this phenomena with detail studies.

185. Bioavailability enhancers: An overview

Oral absorption of the drug is a very important issue especially when the drug is poorly bioavailable, given for long periods and expensive. Poorly bioavailable drugs remain sub-therapeutic because a major portion of a dose never reaches the plasma or exerts its pharmacological effect unless and until very large doses are given which may also lead to serious side effects. Any significant improvement in bioavailability will result in lowering the dose or the dose frequency of that particular drug. Bioenhancers are chemical entities which promote and augment the bioavailability of the drugs which are mixed with them and do not exhibit a synergistic effect with the drug. The various bio enhancers available are piperine, garlic, Carum carvi, Cuminum cyminum, lysergol, naringin, quercetin, aziridine, glycyrrhizin, stevia, cow urine distillate ginger.

199. Identification of novel compounds to treat Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease or Alzheimer’s is a brain disorder characterized by progressive loss of neural functions and dementia in elderly people. It has perilous effects on memory and other cognitive activities. Apolipoprotein (APOE) is responsible for delivering cholesterol-rich lipoproteins to the bloodstream. The maintenance of optimum levels of cholesterol is absolutely necessary as an imbalance might lead to cardiovascular and neurological diseases. Out of the four alleles for the APOE gene, the main causative agent for the onset of Alzheimer’s is the e4 allele. APOE e4 allele leads to the production of amyloid plaques which further cause the accumulation of amyloid β peptide. The excess build-up of such toxic products leads to neuronal death giving rise to early symptoms of the disease. Our research mainly focuses on the identification of potential inhibitors against Sortilin (SORT1), an APOE receptor associated with Alzheimer’s. We have employed scientific software to identify the specific conformations of ligands that show the maximum interaction with the target compound and further analyzed these results by generating descriptors computationally for QSAR studies. The optimum model was generated with r2 = 0.794, s= 0.108. We have been able to select two ligands which can be used as potential drugs to treat Alzheimer’s.

In general online websites contain millions of articles related to different domains. The major flaw found in these websites is the absence of security for files uploaded without any protection. It is made in such a way as it is simply available for any users to change the content of these files. Thus, to overcome the above drawback we propose the system “Framework for Enhancing Privacy of the Files in Web Using Random Key Generation Technique” which makes all the files protected using key generation and encryption techniques so that no other invalid user is allowed to access the file. Even the authorized user must request to the admin to get the key for the particular file from the database to access it. Thus the system provides secured data access with original information uploaded by the data owner, it also avoids the duplication of the same content from different users of the web.

LI-FI is the latest technology in the Field of wireless communication. Nowadays many people are using internet to fulfill most of their tasks through wired or wireless networks. As the number of users is increasing, the rate of data transmission in the wireless network automatically decreases. WI-FI provides us speeds near about 150mbps as per IEEE 802.11n but still it is not able to fulfill the requirement of the user because of such reason we are introducing the LI-FI. According to the German physicist Harald Hass, LI-FI provides much higher data transmission speeds (10gbps and max up to 224gbps per second) by using visible light. In this condition the LI-FI/WI-FI is analyzed. It’s the same idea band behind infrared remote controls but is more powerful. Haas says his invention, which he calls D-LIGHT, can produce data rates faster than our average broadband connection. Nowadays, parking vehicles is one of the most tedious jobs. Hence, in order to solve this problem, a reliable system is proposed. Our system solves the current parking problems by offering guaranteed parking reservations with the lowest possible cost and searching time for drivers and the highest revenue and resource utilization for parking managers.

Most of the cases, people attempting suicide don’t express it a lot in person due to the judgmental attitude of society. We have come with an idea of using WHO published data on suicide. With this we evaluate results to recognize and reduce the suicidal risk of the age group committing more suicides. We can use the same data to target the right audience through social media and campaigns to prevent it and reduce the cases. Linear regression and Random Forest algorithms are used which can predict the possible cases of suicides. We included a prediction algorithm called fbprophet. Once the analysis of the dataset is completed, we visualize the data and the group of audience committing more suicides will be targeted on social media. In the part of prevention, the audience is targeted on Facebook by using a parameter like the age, sex, and region. For this Facebook provides a paid medium through which we can provide awareness and motivation for targeted people.

213. Eliminating the redundant data for side channel in cloud

In recent years, the amount of data stored at the cloud storage is increasing rapidly due to the prevalence of data outsourcing. In order to be cost-effective and to reduce the bandwidth consumption, cloud stores use cross-user client-side data deduplication which eliminates the need to store redundant copies by keeping only a single copy of the data at the cloud storage. Cloud storage providers generally adopt data deduplication, a technique for eliminating redundant data by keeping only a single copy of a file, thus saving a considerable amount of storage and bandwidth. Even then, the attackers use many deduplication protocols to steal information. For example, an attacker can perform the duplicate check to verify whether a file (e.g., a pay slip, with a specific name and salary amount) is already stored (by someone else), hence breaching the user privacy.

217. E-Cycle

Nowadays personal and efficient modes of transportation used in India include bicycles, mopeds, and motorcycles. These mopeds and motorcycles tend to be more costly in terms of initial buying cost, ever-rising prices of fuels required for driving these vehicles & high maintenance costs. Also, the fossil fuel deposits are getting depleted day by day and it’s hard to find the new ones to replace them. Moreover, pollution due to these fuels is jeopardizing the environment continuously. On the other hand, the low buying cost and zero running cost of traditional bicycle sometimes tend to be inconceivable as lots of muscle power is wasted by rider propelling the pedals to rotate the driving rear wheel. Keeping all this in mind, we proposed a new way to cater to people as well as to provide a solution for environmental pollution. Thus Solar Energy is one of the freely available energy sources in nature which could be harnessed easily and converted to electrical energy using a low-cost mechanism such as solar panel and used for the purpose of instilling mobility. Hence, a Solar Powered Electric Bicycle is proposed over here. Our solar powered electric bicycle developed is driven by Brush-less DC motor. The solar panels mounted, on the bicycle, which will charge the battery, which in turn drive the motor.

219. Smart glove for hand gesture recognition

Human beings have a natural ability to see, listen and interact with their external world. Unfortunately, there are some people who are differently abled and do not have the ability to use their senses to the best extent possible. Such people depend on other means of communication like sign language. This presents a major roadblock for people in the hearing and speech impairment communities when they try to engage in interaction with others who are unfamiliar with the sign language, especially in their educational, social and professional environments. Therefore, it is necessary to have a gesture recognition or sign language detection system to bridge this communication gap. The main aim of the proposed system is to develop a smart glove for real-time gesture recognition using IoT. A mobile application is used as an interface to convert gestures into speech or voice output.

233. Factors to be considered for location selection for affordable housing

Due to the rise in population in metro cities, there has been a substantial rise in the demand for houses. This demand, however, is more from the service-going employees which majorly falls under lower and medium income group. To fulfill this increasing demand and meet these uprising challenges, affordable housing has more or less become the necessity of our developing country. Affordable housing is a challenge that many countries are currently dealing with. “Affordable housing refers to any housing that meets some form of affordability criterion, which could be income level of the family, size of the dwelling unit or affordability in terms of EMI size or a ratio of house price to annual income.” Along with constructing the right number of houses, constructing it within the right budget is also equally necessary. With an increase in the rate of land parcels in and around the metro cities, selection of appropriate land parcel plays an important role in keeping the project within the desired budget. Budget is the most crucial constraint of the project and not much buffer is available for the same. Undertaking an affordable housing project should be such that the profitability of the developer company is achieved as well as the financial needs of the consumer are complimented. It should be a win-win situation for both parties. To execute such a project, the location for the project should be well planned. This is especially important for targeting the pricing sensitivity to locational advantage. Selecting the appropriate location will solemnly solve the budgetary restriction for the developer and the tenements. In this research paper, we will discuss the factors to be considered while selecting an appropriate location to execute a successful affordable housing project.

243. Elimination of cylinder head valve guide wrong fitment

The Engine is powered by burning the air-fuel mixture inside the combustion chamber and the power is delivered to run the Vehicle. The mixture of air-fuel is required in the correct quantity to attain maximum efficiency. There are two valves present in the Engine cylinder head which is inlet and exhaust valve. This two valve will have different parameters, in which the exhaust valve is small and the inlet is big compared to the exhaust valve. Valve Guides and valve seats are very important for the continuous proper working of the inlet and exhaust valves. The valve guide is helpful for the valve to sit in the correct position with respect to the valve seat. Valve Guide is a cylindrical piece which is manually loaded in the machine and pressed into the cylinder head during the cylinder head machining process. Since the valve guide is inserted in the valve guide press machine manually there is a chance of inserting in the wrong direction inside the cylinder head. This problem leads to a drastic amount of scrap and increases in material cost. The solution to this problem can be solved by adding an airline and pressure sensor in the valve guide holder in valve guide press machine. This can eliminate the problem and also improves in the quality time and in the reduction of the amount of scrap.

245. Air and water quality monitoring system

The degradation of water resources and air pollution has become a common problem. The conventional methods of monitoring involve the manual collection of water and air sample from different locations. These samples are tested in the laboratory using rigorous skills. Such approaches are time-consuming and are no longer to be considered to be efficient. Moreover, the current methodologies include analyzing various kinds of parameters of quality such as physical and chemical. The old method of quality detection and communication is time-consuming, low precision and costly. Therefore, there is a need for continuous monitoring of water and air quality parameters in real time. By focusing on the above issues, a low-cost monitoring system is using that can monitor air and water quality in real time using IoT. Each device has a unique identification and must be able to capture real-time data autonomously. Basic building blocks of IoT consist of sensors, processors, gateways, and applications. In the system, water quality parameters are measured by different sensors such as pH, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, temperature, CO2 level and Air quality for communicating data onto a platform via microcontroller based system.

248. Product aspect ranking and its application

E-commerce is a transaction of buying or selling something online. E-commerce allows the customers to overcome the barriers of geographical and also allows them to purchase anytime and from anywhere and also consumers having the privilege to review positively or negatively on any product over the online. The consumer review is very important in knowing the product’s aspect and feature and it also very useful for both other consumers and firm. So in the way of finding the product aspect ranking we have proposed the methodologies in which it extracts the reviews and preprocessing, finding the aspect identification of the product, classifying the positive, negative and neutral reviews of the product by the sentiment classifier and also proposing the ranking algorithm used for the product ranking. In the data preprocessing there are methods available in which it initially differentiates the meaning and meaningless words and also it removes the postfix from each word and then tokenize each sentence by removing the emotion icons and also space. In aspect identification, we will identify the aspect from the numerous review which is given by the consumer whether it is positive or negative and on its basis of high or low score we will give a ranking. The main aims of sentiment classifier are to classify the review. The concurrent consideration of the aspect frequency and the pressure of consumer’s opinion given to each aspect on their overall opinions in the products aspects ranking and in its application.

This review paper entails various details regarding a national level NGO (Make A Difference (MAD)) and a regional level NGO (Latika Roy Foundation (LRF)). A study regarding the individual structures and functions of these organizations has been done and suggestions as to how these two organizations can work in a coordinated manner have also been provided. MAD has a more macroscopic impact whereas LRF has a more microscopic impact. It is the amalgamation of these two impact levels which forms the foundation of the review paper. A macroscopic entity can have a more profound effect if it is enhanced microscopically, and a microscopic entity can have more outreach if provided with the required macroscopic resources. This is precisely the reason, for suggesting a coordinated helping system between a national level NGO and a regional or a state level NGO. Such a system is not only self-sustained but also mutually beneficial to the two organizations as explained earlier. Reasons for the selection of the said NGOs, their structures, recruitment processes, funding sources, and functioning have been covered in remarkable detail as well.

253. Design scheme for copyright management system based on digital watermarking and blockchain

In the past, traditional digital copyright protection system based on digital watermarking focused on implementation of watermarking text or image ignored the generation and storage of watermark information. In this paper, a new design scheme of a copyright management system based on digital watermarking and blockchain is proposed which combines digital watermarking, blockchain, perceptual hash function, Quick Response (QR) code, and Inter Planetary File System (IPFS). The blockchain is used to securely store watermark information that implements to provide a timestamp authentication. A perceptual hash function is used to generate a hash value based on the structure information of the watermark image can be confirmed without the original image. A QR code is used to generate a QR image containing image hash and copyright information of the owner. IPFS is used to store and distribute watermarked images without any centralized server and can reduce information-leakage, improves security and transparency of information to facilitate circulation in the network. Here we give BST to check the perceptual hash values to see whether the image is copyrighted or not.

A pneumatic machine is for sheet metal industry and can be made into multiple machines and should be used as “U” shaped clamp and also circle cutting cum straight cutting machine. This machine is simple to maintain easy to operate. Hence we tried out hands-on Pneumatic Shearing Machine In shearing operation as the punch descends upon the metal, the pressure exerted by the punch first cause the plastic deformation of the metal. Since the clearance between the punch and the die is very small, the plastic deformation takes place in a localized area and the metal adjacent to the cutting edges of the punch and die edges becomes highly stressed, which causes the fracture to start on both sides of the sheet as the deformation progresses. And the working of the pneumatic system depends upon air compressor, which converts mechanical energy into, pressure energy of compressed air. The compressed air should be proposed to move the piston of the pneumatic cylinder. The linear movement of the piston and piston rod can be used to get various mechanical operations like bending, cutting, punching, and hammering etc.

269. Disease detection using image processing

Malaria is a life-threatening disease which is caused by a Plasmodium parasite which is transmitted by infected mosquito’s bite. Similarly, Dengue fever is a very painful mosquito-borne disease caused by the dengue virus. Manual Detection of both of the diseases takes too much time and tropical and sub-tropical areas are experiencing these diseases at the high level and due to detection taking too long an automated system for detection of these diseases has become a need which consumes less time and cost. There are existing techniques for prediction of malaria using neural networks, multi-layer perceptron. Based on the survey in this paper we propose a system for prediction of malaria and dengue using image processing concepts such as segmentation techniques and morphological operations such as flood fill. In many laboratories, the blood cell count is done manually and needs to be done by an expert. This project uses a digital camera which works with a traditional microscope where the camera provides microscopic images to the computer. The proposed hardware is cost-efficient.

270. Nap detection and alert system using OpenCV

In recent years driver fatigue is one of the major causes of vehicle accidents in the world. A direct way of measuring driver fatigue is measuring the state of the driver i.e. drowsiness. So it is very important to detect the drowsiness of the driver to save life and property. This project is aimed towards developing a prototype of a drowsiness detection system. This system is a real-time system which captures image continuously and measures the state of the eye according to the specified algorithm and gives a warning if required. Though there are several methods for measuring the drowsiness, this approach is completely non-intrusive which does not affect the driver in any way, hence giving the exact condition of the driver. For detection of drowsiness eye aspect ratio value of the eye is considered. So when the closure of eye exceeds a certain amount then the driver is identified to be sleepy. Corrections for drowsiness include both in and out vehicle alarms and its repetition turns the engine off after giving a signal to the vehicles behind. We are also providing security for the owner i.e., if the vehicle is driven by another person and does any kind of suspicious activities then ,not the actual person but the owner will face problems, in order to avoid the problem for the owner, when the engine starts we automatically capture the image of the driver along with date and time without knowledge of the driver. Then he can easily identify the person who is driving and the owner will be saved.

275. Load rebalancing for distributed file systems in clouds

The key building blocks for cloud computing applications are Distributed File Systems which are based on the Map Reduce programming paradigm. Nodes simultaneously serve computing and storage functions In such file systems. A file is partitioned into a number of chunks allocated in distinct nodes in order so, over the nodes, MapReduce tasks can be performed in parallel. However, failure is the norm in a cloud computing environment. In the system, nodes may be either upgraded, or replaced, or added. Files can also be dynamically created, or deleted, and appended. Our algorithm is compared against a centralized approach in a production system and a competing distributed solution presented in the literature. The results indicate that our proposal is comparable with the existing centralized approach. It also considerably outperforms the prior distributed algorithm in terms of load imbalance factor, movement cost, and algorithmic overhead.

280. Implementation of TTL based packet marking for IPV4

There are more chances nowadays for a network to be attacked The common attacks are DoS and DDoS attacks. They are mainly responsible for causing disturbances for the network. There are so many mechanisms in preventing these attacks like packet marking. This packet marking is mainly used to find the source of an attack. While solving this process, the main problem is to minimize the number of IP packets used in the tracing of the attacks. The number of packets that are beginning from the individual sources is not adequate to trace back the aggressors and consequently, a proficient bundle checking plan is required in this unique circumstance. This paper focusses on finding the source of the attack using the less number of hops counts. For implementing this project we are mainly using NS2 and prove that it is more efficient than existing algorithms of finding the attacker.

287. An energy efficient approach for data aggregation in wireless sensor networks based on sink mobility

A network that does not include any central controller and allows nodes to enter or leave the network at any time is known as a wireless sensor network. There are very small sized nodes deployed in these networks in large areas. The energy consumption of the nodes in these networks is a major concern since it directly affects the lifetime of the network. These dead node cause several problems. To enhance the network lifetime mobile sink is introduced which improve network performance. But mobile also leads to another challenge such as mobile sink scheduling and (re)routing. The complete network is divided into fixed size clusters and based on the energy and distance, cluster heads are chosen from the clusters. The remaining nodes of the cluster are considered to be individual. Several clustering algorithms have been designed by researchers which can be broadly categorized based on the manner in which clusters are formed and the kinds of parameters included during the selection of cluster heads. This research focuses on aggregating the data from cluster heads by deploying multiple mobile sinks. The bee colony algorithm is used to make the base station mobile. The simulation of the proposed technique is performed in MATLAB and results are analyzed in terms of various parameters.

290. Enhanced fingerprint recognition and OTP to improve ATM Security

In the previous few years’ robberies of ATM is increasing and becoming a problem for Banks. In the current system, we operating ATM using a PIN number which can be stolen or guessed and can be hacked during the transaction. That raises a question on the present security and demands something new in the system which can provide the second level of security. So for that in this paper, there is added some extra security to the current ATM Systems. We use the fingerprint system and One Time Password (OTP) which is sent to the user registration mobile number through GSM Module system. After that, the user will be able to complete the transaction securely. The working of this ATM machine is when the customer places his finger on the fingerprint module when access it automatically generates different 4-digit code as a message every time to the mobile of the authorized customer through GSM modem which is connected to the microcontroller [1]. The code received by the customer should be entered by pressing the keys on the keypad provided. This proposal will go a long way to resolve the problem of bank account safety and transaction.

294. Motion and Bluetooth controlled office automation cum power saver

The Motion & Bluetooth Controlled Office Automation Cum Power Saver, where the lights in the room will automatically turn on upon detecting a human motion and stay turned on until the person has left the room or there is no motion. Initially, when there is no human movement, the PIR Sensor does not detect any person and its OUT pin stays LOW. When the person enters the room, the change in infrared radiation in the room is detected by the PIR Sensor. The output of the PIR Sensor becomes HIGH. Since the Data OUT of the Sensor is connected to Digital Pin 8 of Arduino, whenever it becomes HIGH, Arduino will activate the relay by making the relay pin LOW as the relay module is an active LOW module. This will turn the Light ON. The light stays turned ON as long as there is movement in front of the sensor. If the person takes a nap or leaves the room, the IR Radiation will become stable (there will be no change) and hence, the Data OUT of the PIR Sensor will become LOW. This, in turn, will make the Arduino turn OFF the relay (make the relay pin HIGH) and the room light will be turned OFF. Along with Motion controlled this system will have control in users hand on Android mobile; the user can turn ON/OFF Load in a single click. The Android application will help the user to monitor the current status of Motion Sensor as well as to update new Delay Time to keep the load on even there is no Motion. By using the Android application it will be possible for the user to say after what time the system will shut down the load. The system will start buzzing if time to Shut Down the load is less than 30 Sec.
