Paper Title:

Self Study Approach to Self Discovery and Motivational Training for Real Estate Professionals in Nigeria

Abstract: Entrepreneurship is a key factor in the production of goods and services. This paper reviews the theoretical, empirical, and the conceptual approaches to determining the significance of entrepreneurship to national economic growth and empowerment, and also draws evidence from China, Thailand, Singapore, India and Korea to support these approaches. It provides a sample of a Self-Discovery Exercise to Real Estate Professionals (REPs) based on ranking of 12 motivators in order of their importance from 1st to 12th in comparison with standard rankings.  It concludes that entrepreneurship is significant to national economic empowerment and development and that REPs can add value in their various areas of professional practice and become players in the international real estate markets.  The paper recommends sincere and regular self-discovery based on the standardised scheme for motivational training exercise, and that Governments at all levels synergise efforts towards improving entrepreneurial framework conditions by  increasing access to finance, facilitate entry and exit, and create Government support programmes.

Comparative Study of Design of Steel Structural Elements by using IS 800:2007, AISC 13th Edition and BS: 5950, 1:2000

Abstract: The task of the structural engineer is to design a structure which satisfies the needs of the client and the user. Specifically the structure should be safe, economical to build and maintain, and aesthetically pleasing. By considering the above needs of user this study gives the comparative design of structural element by using three different International Design Codes.Structural Elements such as tension member, compression member, flexural member, beam column, gusseted base, and beam column connection are designed for this comparative study. Same data is considered for the design of particular element and that element is designed by using Indian Standard (IS 800:2007), American Standard (AISC 13th Edition) and British Standard (BS 5950, 1:2000). The design methodology used in this study is same for all the codes but there are some differences in the constants or parameters depending on the code used. Finally the results are evaluated and compared in the tabular format.

Obstacle Avoidance System for Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Using Fin System

Abstract: An underwater glider is a type of an unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV). The movement of an underwater glider in the water is based on the buoyancy-propelled for float and fixed-winged for stabilizing the glider’s body. However, a fixed wing underwater glider has limitation to avoid hitting the obstacle in front of it. To overcome this problem, the application of fin system in underwater glider is needed. In this project, a methodology was introduced which is design a flexible fin system of an underwater glider for obstacle avoidance purpose. This final year project mainly focused on SolidWorks’s simulation and analysis of -30°, -45°, -60° for submerge and rise up at 30°, 45°, 60° to get the most suitable angle for the glider’s fin system to submerge and rise up. The UTeM underwater glider is modified from fixed to flexible wing. Hence, Peripheral Interface Controller (PIC) is used to program the movement of the glider’s wings for upward at 45°and downward at -45°in the water. Thus, a flexible fin system for obstacle avoidance is designed and applied in UTeM underwater glider.

A Comparative Analysis of Several Back Propagation Algorithms in Wireless Channel for ANN-Based Mobile Radio Signal Detector

Abstract: Application of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) in cognitive radio has received considerable attention to incorporate artificial intelligence in cognitive radio based communication system. This paper introduces multilayer feed-forward neural network (MFNN) for spectrum sensing to detect the primary users. This in turn would enable the detector to identify the vacant bands that are devoid of primary users. As the accuracy of detection depends on the structure of the network and on the learning algorithms, an MFNN is trained with different back propagation algorithms varying the number of hidden neurons to find out the best suitable structure of the MFNN for spectrum sensing in different conditions of the wireless channel. Distinct cyclostationary features of different primary users are extracted to generate the input feature vectors for the MFNN as these features are well accepted for signal detection in low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The False Alarm Rate (FAR) of the detector is also evaluated with SNR and multipath delay. Simulation results prove that MFNN is suitable for designing a highly robust vacant band detector in the time varying wireless channel as it provides low and almost constant FAR in high multipath delay and low SNR RF environment.

Paper Title:

Modeling and Simulation of Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation based Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor Drive using MRAS

Abstract: The Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM) is extensively used in low and mid power applications such as robotics, adjustable speed drives, electric vehicles and also in industrial automation. The MRAS is based on the comparison of the outputs of two estimators. The first is independent of the observed variable named as model reference. The second is the adjustable one. The error between the two models feed an adaptive mechanism to turn out the observed variable. This paper presents a detailed modeling of PMSM and a novel space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) based control of permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive by using a Model Reference Adaptive System (MRAS) for estimating rotor position angle and speed based on a stator current estimator. The three-phase, two-level voltage source inverter (VSI) has a quite simple design and generates a low-frequency output voltage with controlled amplitude and frequency by programming gating pulses at high-frequency. The whole drive system is simulated in Matlab/Simulink based on the mathematical modeling of the system and the results are presented.

Optimization of CNC Turning Process Parameters on ALUMINIUM 6061 Using Genetic Algorithm

Abstract: This paper presents the effect of process parameter in turning operation to predict surface roughness.  Application of alumunium 6061 can be found in many manufacturing industries such as aircraft and aerospace components, marine fittings, transport, bicycle frames, camera lenses, drive, shafts, electrical fittings and connectors, brake components, valves, couplings. But some of the limitations during machining of aluminum 6061 are lower strength at elevated temperatures and limited formability affects quality of desired output. A lot of parameters that affect the turning operation are vibration, tool wear, surface roughness etc. Among this surface roughness plays a major role which affects the quality in the manufacturing process. This paper presents the effect of process parameter by considering the Spindle speed, Feed rate and Depth of cut.  The main objective of this paper is to predict the surface roughness. Aluminium 6061 is taken into a consideration, machining is done by using coated carbide tool. A second order mathematical model is developed using regression technique of Box-Behnken of Response Surface Methodology (RSM) in design expert software 8.0 and optimization carried out by using genetic algorithm in matlab8.0. This study attempts the application of genetic algorithm to find the optimal solution of the cutting conditions.

Design of Combinational Circuits Using Evolutionary Techniques

Abstract: With the increasing demand for high quality, more efficient design of logic circuits, the problem of circuit design has become a multi-objective optimization problem. Therefore, there should evolve new methodologies for designing logic circuits. Usually, logic circuits are designed by human beings who have a specific repertoire of conventional design techniques. These techniques limit the solutions that may be considered during the design process in both form and quality. The application of evolutionary algorithms has allowed the creation of circuits which are substantially superior to the best known human designs. Several evolutionary algorithms are applied in design of combinational circuits, namely Genetic Algorithms, Particle Swarm Optimization and Ant colony Optimization techniques. We compared these approaches and produces better performance both in terms of quality of solution and in terms of speed of convergence.

Virtual Differential Storage Based K-Rollback Concurrency Control Algorithm in Distributed Shared Memory Systems

Abstract: Most of the algorithms that exist today for concurrency control over distributed shared memory, either fail to provide a scalable model or involve a large communication overhead for establishing consensus over the state of the shared variables. After a thorough study of some of the efficient algorithms this field, this paper introduces a functional view of a holistic approach, which exploits the best features of all others. It provides a virtual differential storage, which allows fast replication and compact storage, along with a strong subversion control over rollbacks in time, which provides better fault tolerance. It also talks of an intelligent logging mechanism, where the read/write records are used actively by the central controller to provide exclusion over Above all, the algorithm is best implemented in LISP or Scheme due to its functional nature. This make  the implementation computationally very fast. A trade off, however, exists between the implementation complexity and the quality of the final product.

A Comparative Analysis to Determine the Optimum Approach for Image Denoising

Abstract: Image denoising demands serious attention and is usually the first and foremost step in any image processing application. Erroneous denoised results lead to improper and inaccurate final results. So it is of prime importance to eliminate the noise from the image to the utmost extent..In this paper an analysis is performed for image denoising by imposing different types of noise on the original image,using a choice of wavelet decomposition techniques and also different feasible thresholding techniques to find the optimum denoised result image and also the best combination involved in the process .

An Advanced Technique of De-Noising Medical Images using ANFIS

Abstract: Noise reduction has been a traditional problem in image processing. Medical images like X-RAY, CT, MRI, PET and SPECT have minute information about heart, brain, nerves etc. These images are corrupted during transmission. When these are corrupted by noise, it is impossible to rescue a human being from harmful effects. Recent wavelet thresholding based denoising methods proved promising, since they are capable of suppressing noise while maintaining the high frequency signal details. However, the local space-scale information of the image is not adaptively considered by standard wavelet thresholding methods. In this thesis, a new type of technique neural network and fuzzy has been proposed. The proposed technique confiscates the Additive white Gaussian Noise from the CT images and improves the quality of the CT images. The proposed work is comprised of three phases; they are preprocessing, training and testing. In the preprocessing phase, the CT image which is affected by the AWGN noise is transformed using multi wavelet transformation. In the training phase the obtained multi-wavelet coefficients are given as input to the Neural Network and Fuzzy System. In the testing phase, the input CT image is examined using this trained Neural Network and Fuzzy System and then to enhance the quality of the CT image thresholding is applied and then the image is reconstructed. Hence, the denoised and the quality enhanced CT images are obtained in an effective manner.

Paper Title:

Brain Tumor Detection Using Neural Network

Abstract: The segmentation of brain tumors in magnetic resonance images (MRI) is a challenging and difficult task because of the variety of their possible shapes, locations, image intensities. In this paper, it is intended to summarize and compare the methods of automatic detection of brain tumor through Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) used in different stages of Computer Aided Detection System (CAD). Brain Image classification techniques are studied. Existing methods are classically divided into region based and contour based methods. These are usually dedicated to full enhanced tumors or specific types of tumors. The amount of resources required to describe large set of data is simplified and selected in for tissue segmentation. In this paper, modified image segmentation techniques were applied on MRI scan images in order to detect brain tumors. Also in this paper, a modified Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN) model that is based on learning vector quantization (LVQ) with image and data analysis and manipulation techniques is proposed to carry out an automated brain tumor classification using MRI-scans. The assessment of the modified PNN classifier performance is measured in terms of the training performance, classification accuracies and computational time. The simulation results showed that the modified PNN gives rapid and accurate classification compared with the image processing and published conventional PNN techniques. Simulation results also showed that the proposed system out performs the corresponding PNN system presented and successfully handle the process of brain tumor classification in MRI image with 100% accuracy.
