    Title: Adaptive Indoor Positioning System Using ARM

    Authors: Naveena Mariam Jose and Jubin Mathew

    Abstract: Indoor localization is of great importance for a range of pervasive applications, attracting many research efforts in the past two decades. Most radio-based solutions require a process of site survey, in which radio signatures are collected and stored for further comparison and matching. Site survey involves intensive costs on manpower and time. In this work, we study unexploited RF signal characteristics and leverage user motions to construct radio floor plan that is previously obtained by site survey. On this basis, we design WILL, an indoor localization approach based on off-the-shelf WiFi or zigbee infrastructure. Within the emerging market of smart phones, ARM is well suited for modern devices and offers an excellent option for localization due to its support of diverse sensors and hardware which can be leveraged for localization beyond GPS (e.g. Wi-Fi, cellular communications, accelerometer), and its higher efficiency. Zigbee technology can also be applied for indoor localization, achieving accuracies of approximately 30 meters. The advance of wireless and embedded technology has fostered the flourish of Smartphone market.

    Abstract: Semiconductor industry and government agencies have raised serious concerns about tampering with inserting hardware Trojans in an integrated circuit supply chain in recent years. Time to activate a hardware Trojan circuit is a major concern from the authentication standpoint. This paper analyzes time to generate a transition in functional Trojans. A dummy scan flip-flop insertion procedure is proposed aiming at decreasing transition generation time. Moreover, this paper proposes an advanced technique used for the protection of memory cells. The data with Trojan input are scanned before passing through the main memory. Whenever the Trojans are detected it should be scanned out separately and memory cells are protected. Memory cell reordering is a structured cell arrangement for scanning. Structured cell arrangement is used for easy detection of Trojans and for scanning input data. The simulation results demonstrate that, with a negligible area overhead, our proposed method can significantly increase Trojan activity and reduce Trojan activation time.

    Title: A Novel Security Enhancement Strategy for Improving the Concert of CDMA Based Mobile Ad-Hoc Network

    Authors: A. Swaminathan, Dr. B. Santhana Krishnan and Dr. M. Ramaswamy

    Abstract: Mobile Ad-hoc networks have become an indispensable part of people?s daily life. Recent research has been shown that the physical layer security techniques become a more essential part in the wireless communications. As a result, security is an imperative and more challenging issue in wireless networks since the users might transmit their sensitive personal information (e.g., credit card details) over the wireless networks. The open communications environment makes wireless transmissions more vulnerable than wired communications to malicious attacks, including both eavesdropping and jamming for disrupting legitimate transmissions. Wireless air interface is open and accessible to both authorized and illegitimate users. This completely differs from a wired network, where communicating devices are physically connected through cables and a node without direct association is unable to access the network for illicit activities. Code division multiple access network is an example of multiple access, where several transmitters can send information simultaneously over a single communication channel with the optimum available bandwidth based on spread spectrum technology. It is proposed to develop an anti eavesdropping strategy for improving the performance of CDMA based network. Network Simulation has been conducted to evaluate the performance of proposed network. The results are obtained in terms of the performance indices with the aid of Zero knowledge protocol to identify the type of attackers and the data are routed through AODV routing pattern. The new approach shows that the proposed outcome is an extended enhancement of network security.

    Title: A Novel on Dual Polarized HMSS

    Authors: Jubin Mathew and Naveena Mariam Jose

    Abstract: An increasing number of hybrid mobile systems comprising a satellite and a terrestrial component are becoming standardized and realized. The next generation of these systems will employ higher dimensions adopting multiple-input multiple output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMOOFDM) techniques. In this work, we build upon recent studies of dual polarization MIMO for each component and propose the use of full-rate fulldiversity( FRFD)codes adopting a space frequency paradigm. We also propose a scheme taking advantage of the separation between the subcarriers to enhance the coding gain. By critically assessing the different options for the 4 transmit, 2 receive hybrid scenario taking into account system and channel particularities, we demonstrate that the proposed scheme is a solution for enhancing the performance of next generation hybrid mobile satellite systems.

    Abstract: DRAM is widely used as main memory storage in contemporary computer systems. As VLSI process technology advances, more transistors can be integrated in a single chip leading to higher storage capacity. Basic DRAMs are volatile memory. The volatile DRAMs are made into a non-volatile one by adding an extra transistor and a resistor (1T1R) along with the core. The performance comparison of volatile as well as proposed non-volatile cell is examined. Comparison of different DRAM cells is done. Considerations on delay, the power dissipated and overall area is made here. The NVDRAM (4T1D) cell is then proposed. The project also dealt with basic memory architecture. The CMOS memory design includes sense amplifiers, row and column decoders and finally the operating memory cells themselves. The 8x8 non-volatile 4T1D DRAM cell is then proposed and implemented. And their performances is examined. The schematic entry was done using Mentor Graphics Design architect and simulations are done using Mentor Graphics Eldo. The simulation results obtained with TSMC 180nm process technology at 1.8V.

    Title: An Artificial Bee Colony Approach for Optimal Contrast Tone Mapping

    Authors: Anitharajam B. S.

    Abstract: This paper proposes a novel arithmetic approach of image enhancement via optical contrast tone mapping. Histogram Equalization (H E) is a simple and effective image enhancing technique. It is a simple technique for improving image contrast, but its effect is too severe for certain purposes. However dramatically different results may be obtained with relatively minor modifications. Therefore the proposed approach maximises expected contrast gain subject to an upper limit on tone distortion and optionally to other constraints that suppress artifacts. The underlying contrast-tone optimization problem can be solved efficiently by linear programming. In this optimization approach, we can add and fine tune the constraints to achieve desired visual effects. Experimental results demonstrate clearly superior performance of the new approach over histogram equalization and its variants.

    Title: Enhanced Hexagon with Early Termination Algorithm for Motion estimation

    Authors: Neethu Susan Idiculay

    Abstract: To achieve a high compression ratio in coding video data, a method known as Motion Estimation (ME) is often applied to reduce the temporal redundancy between successive frames of a video sequence. One of the ME techniques, known as Block Matching Algorithm (BMA), has been widely used in various video coding standards. In recent years, many of these BMAs have been developed with similar intention of reducing the computational costs while at the same time maintaining the video signal quality. Here, an algorithm called Enhanced Hexagon with Early Termination Algorithm is proposed with either Small Cross Search Pattern (SCSP) or X-Shaped Pattern (XSP) in the initial step. This is implemented in MATLAB and is tested with different standard video sequences. Experimental results show that the proposed XSP based algorithm is better than Enhanced Hexagonal Search (EHS) in terms of average number of search points and computational complexity.

    Title: Survey on an Efficient method for finds Friends in Social Networks

    Authors: Bhavana Anant Zambare and Madhuri Zawar

    Abstract: Every day we are overwhelmed with many choices and options, simultaneously recommendation systems have gained popularity in providing suggestions. Today every web application has its own recommendation system. Whereas, Recommendation systems for social networks are different from other kinds of system, since the item here are rational human beings rather than goods. Hence, the ?Social? factor has to be accounted for when making a recommendation. We considered one of the most popular social Networking sites that is Face book as it offers impressive features. Here, we are mainly focusing on recommending friend with similar interest which is different among all the existing ones where Face book uses social graph a friend of friend approach to recommend friend which may not be the most appropriate to reflect a user?s preferences on friend selection in real life. And Netflix, Foursquare which all focus on recommending items. Hence we proposed framework Friend tome, a novel semantic based friend recommendation system for social networks.

    Title: Vehicular Object Localization and Classification in Traffic Video Dataset

    Authors: Ramanpreet Kaur and Dapinder Kaur

    Abstract: Automatic vehicle identification is an essential stage in intelligent traffic systems. Nowadays vehicles play a very big role in transportation. Also the use of vehicles has been increasing because of population growth and human needs in recent years. Therefore, control of vehicles is becoming a big problem and much more difficult to solve. Automatic vehicle identification systems are used for the purpose of effective control. Automatic vehicle recognition (AVR) is a form of automatic vehicle identification. It is an image processing technology used to identify vehicles by only their license plates. Real time AVR plays a major role in automatic monitoring of traffic rules and maintaining law enforcement on public roads. Since every vehicle carries a unique license plate, no external cards, tags or transmitters need to be recognizable, only license plate. In the existing model, the complex background based on concomitant colors method has been realized for the vehicle detection in the multi-lane system. The existing model has been designed to work on the basis of the uneven illumination for the purpose of multiple vehicle detection on the multiple vehicles captured in the single frame. The existing model has been designed to work in the multiple rounds classify and compute the density of the vehicles over the vehicular object extracted by the various mathematical and morphological operations to extract the vehicle in the video frame data. The proposed model is aimed at using the neural network application for the classification of the vehicles detected in the frames in the input video data. The proposed model is aimed at solving the issue of accuracy in the vehicular object recognition and the vehicular object classification. The proposed model has undergone various experiments over the variety of the video surveillance data for the performance evaluation. The proposed model results have been found efficient enough and better than the existing models by almost 10-20% on each parameters evaluated.

    Title: A Compact MIMO Antenna with High Isolation for UWB Communications

    Authors: N.Saranya and K.Dhinesh

    Abstract: In this paper, a compact multiple-input-multiple ?output (MIMO) antenna has been proposed for ultra-wide-band (UWB) communications. The proposed antenna consists of two identical elements of semicircular patches and half sized ground planes. By placing the antenna elements orthogonally, the high isolation is achieved without using any other decoupling structures. The proposed antenna can operate over a wide impedance bandwidth and having the mutual coupling of less than -15 dB between the elements. The return loss and isolation of the antenna are investigated by means of Advanced Design System (ADS) 2014 tool. The simulation results shows that the proposed MIMO antenna have high isolation and good impedance match characteristic and it is suitable for some portable UWB MIMO /diversity applications. Since the proposed MIMO antenna has excellent inherent properties, a quad ?element MIMO antenna with good isolation is also discussed.

    Title: A review paper on the Performance Analysis of Flip-OFDM for Optical Wireless Communication

    Authors: Jyotsna S. Sawarkar and Dr. N. K. Choudhari

    Abstract: We consider two uniploar OFDM techniques for optical wireless communications: asymmetric clipped optical OFDM (ACO-OFDM) and Flip OFDM. Both techniques can be used to compensate multipath distortion effects in optical wireless channels. However, ACO-OFDM has been widely studied in the literature, while the performance of Flip-OFDM has never been investigated. In this paper, we conduct the performance analysis of Flip-OFDMand propose additional modification to the original scheme in order to compare the performance of both techniques. Finally, it is shown by simulation that both techniques have the same performance but different hardware complexities. In particular, for slow fading channels, Flip-OFDM offers 50% saving in hardware complexity over ACO-OFDM at the receiver.
