Ergonomics Intervention in a Printing Press with Participative Ergonomic Approach and of ILO Ergonomic Checkpoints

Abstract: The ergonomic assessment has been carried out to recognize aspects contributing to discomfort to the workers working at Mudrankan Printing Press and identify ergonomic recommendations to reduce them. To prevent MSDs resulting from the ergonomic risk factor and bad work organization and hence to improve the productivity, safety and health the ergonomic intervention is the right choice.to meet diversifying ergonomic needs, participatory steps  reviewed are found to usually follow a good practice approach easily adjustable according to local needs. These steps are found to usually focus on low cost improvement. In this paper, we scrutinize several ergonomics issues pertaining to reduce the WMSDs among the workers, .in the propose system we introduce the participative intervention approach and use the ILO checkpoints.

Paper Title:

Rule Based Statistical Hybrid Machine Translation

Abstract: Language is the main form of human communication. Translation is essential for co-operation among communities that speaks different languages. Machine Translation refers to the use of computers to automate the task of translation between human languages. Machine Translation performs its operation based on the available examples, which failed to overcome certain ambiguities like mapping of multiple words, idiomatic usages, phrasal verbs, structural ambiguity thus a statistical approach to the machine translation was proposed. Systems are designed either for two particular languages (bilingual systems) or for more than a single pair of languages (multilingual systems). Bilingual systems may be designed to operate either in only one direction e.g. from Tamil into English, or in both directions. Multilingual systems are usually intended to be bidirectional; most bilingual systems are unidirectional. This system is designed as bilingual system, i.e., converting English sentence to Tamil sentence using particular rules.

Idiomatic usages, phrasal verbs, structural ambiguity.

Paper Title:

Enhanced Biclustering for Gene Expression Data

Abstract: Microarray technology is a powerful method for monitoring the expression level of thousands of genes in parallel. Using this technology, the expression levels of genes are measured. Microarray data is represented in N × M matrix. Each row indicates genes and each column indicates condition. In Gene Expression data, standard clustering algorithms are called as global clustering. In global clustering, genes are analyzed under all experimental conditions based on their expression. Biclustering is a very popular method to identify hidden co-regulation patterns among genes and to identify the local structures of genes and conditions. In existing system, Cheng and Church biclustering algorithm is presented as an alternative approach to standard clustering techniques to identify local structures and also identify subsets of genes that shows similar expression patterns across specific subsets of experimental conditions and vice versa. Clustering the microarray data is based on user defined threshold value, this affects the quality of biclusters formed. In proposed scheme, threshold value ∂ is calculated rather than user defined threshold. Biclusters are formed based on the low mean squared residues and ∂, which would improve the quality of the biclusters.

Speed Control of Induction Motor Using Eleven Levels Multilevel Inverter

Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to control the speed of an induction motor by using seven level diode clamped multilevel inverter and to compare the speed control of induction motor using seven level, nine level and eleven level multilevel inverters individually. To obtain high quality sinusoidal output voltage with reduced harmonics. The proposed Scheme for diode clamped multilevel inverter is multicarrier SPWM control. Stator voltage control method is used to control the speed of Induction Motor. As the motor torque is proportional to the square of the supply voltage, a reduction in supply voltage reduce the motor torque and therefore the speed of the drive. The proposed system is an effective replacement for the conventional method which has high switching losses, as a result a poor drive performance. The simulation result portrays the effective control in the motor speed and an enhanced drive performance through reduction in total harmonic distortion (THD).

Paper Title:

Mining Association Rules between Sets of Items in Large Databases

Abstract: In Data Mining, the usefulness of association rules is strongly limited by the huge amount of delivered rules. To overcome this drawback, several methods were proposed in the literature such as item set concise representations, redundancy reduction, and post processing. However, being generally based on statistical information, most of these methods do not guarantee that the extracted rules are interesting for the user. Thus, it is crucial to help the decision-maker with an efficient post processing step in order to reduce the number of rules. This paper proposes a new interactive approach to prune and filter discovered rules. First, we propose to use ontologies in order to improve the integration of user knowledge in the post processing task. Second, we propose the Rule Schema formalism extending the specification language proposed by Liu et al. for user expectations. Furthermore, an interactive framework is designed to assist the user throughout the analyzing task. Applying our new approach over voluminous sets of rules, we were able, by integrating domain expert knowledge in the post processing step, to reduce the number of rules to several dozens or less. Moreover, the quality of the filtered rules was validated by the domain expert at various points in the interactive process.

Comparison of Quality Power Spectrum Estimation (Bartlett, Welch, Blackman & Tukey) Methods

Abstract: To convert the analog signals into samples of digital signals is called the DSP. In this paper we study the power spectrum estimation of DSP. There is a fluctuation on DSP signals thermal noise in resistors & electronic devices. There are two methods for calculating PSE is parametric & non parametric methods. In Nonparametric (classical) methods – begin by estimating the autocorrelation sequence from a given data. Limitations of non parametric methods are we require inherent assumptions for autocorrelation estimate. Parametric method we assume that signal is output of a system having white noise as an input. We model the system and get its parameters i.e. coloring filter coefficients and predict the power spectrum. Here we compare the Yule-Walker method & Burg method   for Power spectrum estimation. In this paper we see that parametric methods do not need these assumptions.

An Ample-Range Survey on Recall-Based Graphical Password Authentication Based On Multi-Line Grid and Attack Patterns

Abstract: A password is a secret word or combination of alphabets used for user authentication to establish self identity. This password should be kept secret from those not allowed to access. Now-a-days data security is the most describing problem. Token based authentication like Smart card, Biometric based authentication like iris, fingerprint, facial, Knowledge based authentication like text based and Image based password. Graphical password are more secure than the text password because they are easy to remember and hard to crack. In this paper we will study survey of different types of Recall-based graphical user authentication algorithm based on usability attributes and attack pattern those we found and also different factors affecting to it. We will also implement multi-line grid algorithm.

Image Denoising Based On Adaptive Wavelet Multiscale Thresholding Method

Abstract: This paper introduces a new technique called adaptive wavelet thresholding and wavelet packet transform to denoised the image based on generalized Gaussian distribution.It chooses an adaptive threshold value which is level and subband dependent based on analyzing the subband coefficients.Experimental results, on different test images under different noise intensity conditions, shows proposed algorithm, called OLI-Shrink, yields better peak signal noise ratio with superior visual image quality measured by universal image quality index compared to standard denoising methods. It also performs some of wavelet-based denoising techniques.wavelet transform enable us to represent image with high degree of scarcity.wavelet transform based denoising technique are of greater interest because of their fourier and other spatial domain methods.

Clear View on Optical Detectors in Ultravoilet Visible and Infrared Portions of the Electromagnetic Spectrum in a Light Wave Communication

Abstract: Many optical fiber communication applications require the use of optical radiation detectors. Examples are optical radar, monitoring of laser power levels for materials processing, and laser metrology. There are different types of optical fiber detectors are available, these optical fiber detectors are covering the ultraviolet, visible, and infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Optical detectors convert incoming optical energy into electrical signals. Thee are two main types of optical fiber detectors are available, such as photon detectors and thermal detectors. Photon detectors produce one electron for each incoming photon of optical energy. The electron is then detected by the electronic circuitry. Thermal detectors convert the optical energy to heat energy, which then generates an electrical signal.. The incident light changes the characteristics of the detector and changes the current flowing in the circuit. The output signal is then the change in voltage drop across the load resistor. In this article, I am describing Fiber optic communication, Electromagnetic spectrum, optical detectors and their important characteristics in photonic applications.

Motion Capture System Based On Color and Edge Distribution

Abstract: This paper describes a robust tracking algorithm for real-time, video based motion capture systems. Since conventional video based motion capture systems use many video cameras and take a long time to deal with many video images, they cannot generate motion data in real time. On the other hand, the prototype system proposed in this paper uses a few video cameras, up to two, it employs a very simple motion-tracking method based on object color and edge distributions, and it takes video images of the person, e.g., x, y position of the hand, feet and head, and then it generates motion data of such body parts in real time. Especially using two video cameras, it generates 3D motion data in real time.  This paper mainly describes its aspects as a real-time motion capture system for the tip parts of the human body, i.e., the hands, feet and head, and validates its usefulness by showing its application examples.

An Optimized Code for Space Vector PWM for A Two Level Voltage Source Inverter

Abstract: A Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation Method (SVPWM) is an advanced intense computational modulation method with several advantages such as less harmonic content relative to other PWM modulations, effective utilization of dc bus, and complete digital implementation by a single chip microprocessor. Due to the advantages SVM has increasing applications in power converters and motor control. 2-level inverter is the first model developed using this technique. In this paper, we implement SVPWM technique for 2-level inverters in the simplest way possible and optimized memory usage by processor using programmable pulse generator.

Secret Communication Through Image and Audio For Defence

Abstract: Steganography is an art of sending hidden data or secret messages over a public channel so that a third party cannot detect the presence of the secret messages. The goal of steganography is different from classical encryption, which seeks to conceal the content of secret messages; steganography is about hiding the very existence of the secret messages. In this paper we mainly discuss combination of steganographic methods.

Goal of steganography is different from classical encryption.

Paper Title:

A Switched-Capacitor Inverter Using Series/ Parallel Conversion with Inductive Load

Abstract: A novel switched-capacitor inverter is proposed. The proposed inverter outputs larger voltage than the input voltage by switching the capacitors in series and in parallel. The maximum output voltage is determined by the number of the capacitors. The proposed inverter, which does not need any inductors, can be smaller than a conventional two-stage unit which consists of a boost converter and an inverter bridge. Its output harmonics are reduced compared to a conventional voltage source single phase full bridge inverter. In this paper, the circuit configuration, the theoretical operation, the simulation results with MATLAB/ SIMULINK, and the experimental results are shown. The experimental results accorded with the theoretical calculation and the simulation results.

Paper Title:

A Protocol to Increase the Lifetime for Wireless Sensor Network

Abstract: The applications of the sensor network require consistent coverage of the region in which they are deployed over the course of the network lifetime. The sensor networks may be deployed randomly, node distribution and data redundancy may be lower than others. The sensors in the sparsest regions should not be more considered for increasing the network lifetime. The densely deployed sensor regions should be considered more to route the traffic of other nodes in the network. Here by we  introduce the protocol.Here by we introduce the protocol called DAPR which is used for sensor selection and route discovery with the goal of minimizing the use of sensors in sparsely covered areas.

Design of Conditional Data Mapping Flip-Flop for Low Power Applications

Abstract: Power consumption is a major bottleneck of system performance and it is listed as one of the top three challenges in International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductor 2008. In practice, a large portion of the on chip power is consumed by the clock system which is made of the clock distribution network and flip-flops. In this paper, various design techniques for a low power clocking system are surveyed. Among them minimizing a number of clocked transistor is an effective way to reduce capacity of the clock load. To approach this, we propose a conditional data mapping technique which reduces the number of local clocked transistors. A 24% reduction of clock driving power is achieved.

A No Reference Image Blur Detection Using Cumulative probability Blur Detection (CPBD) Metric

Abstract: This work presents a perceptual-based no-reference objective image sharpness/blurriness metric by integrating the concept of cumulative probability blur detection with the just noticeable blur into a probability summation model. Unlike existing objective no-reference image sharpness / blurriness metrics, the proposed metric is able to predict the relative amount of blurriness in images with different content. Results are provided to illustrate the performance of the proposed perceptual-based sharpness metric. The blur perception information at each edge is then pooled over the entire image to obtain a final quality score by evaluating the cumulative probability of blur detection (CPBD) metric. Higher metric value represent sharper image. Images having small metric value denote blurred  and  noisy  images .The main purpose of CPBD metric is in TELEMEDICINE and Image quality Measure.

Probability, no-reference, blur detection, sharp images, noisy images.

An Automated Timer System That Maintains Crew Details: Crew Timer System

Abstract: This paper highlights the development of an automatic software that maintain the crew details, crew schedules and priority of the crews in Indian Railways according to sections using an auto Timer System, that uses J2EE technology. It is also used to find the status of the crew and their working hours in the division using indicators. The software has five modules that are named as Loco info, Section points, LP Schedule and Priority, Remainder and Graph module, Loco Inspector Movement. The software helps in maintaining and retrieving the crew details. The auto timer system which is the heart of the software maintains the information about the number of working hours. If the number exceeds eight it automatically relieves the loco pilot of his duty by sending him an SMS. The number of working hours are extended depending upon the will of the loco pilot.

Confidentiality and Privacy in Cloud Computing using Hybrid Execution Method

Abstract: Today cloud computing has become ubiquitous and we see everybody lot of data being transferred and being accessed from the cloud. At the same time this phenomenon presents us with a great risk of data theft and privacy issues. Among these privacy is the main reason that many companies and also individuals to some extent are avoiding the cloud, which also needs be addressed. For this purpose we are proposing a new model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This report analyses the challenges posed by cloud computing and the standardization work being done by various standards development organizations (SDOs) to mitigate privacy risks in the cloud, including the role of privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs).And a new execution model for confidentiality and privacy in cloud computing, called the Hybrid Execution model. This model provides a seamless way for an organization to utilize their own infrastructure for sensitive, private data and computation, while integrating public clouds for non-sensitive, public data and computation. We outline how to realize this model in one specific execution environment, Map Reduce over Big table.

Configurable computing resources, analyses the challenges posed by cloud computing and the standardization work.
