Abstract: Traffic control management system has to be intelligent and equitable in signal allocation management system, especially priority order has to be given to emergency vehicles so as to prevent unforeseen circumstances, likeaccident and delay in emergency duties delivery. However we apply multiple wireless network sensors (MWNS) to intelligently control the road traffic system for equitable allocation of time frame; and to dynamically give priority preference to any sighted emergency vehicle on the road at any point in time; this will enable emergency vehicles to pass through signalized intersections withfewer interruptions from surrounding vehicular traffic.This approach increases road capacity, traffic flow, prevents traffic congestions, accident and thus increases society economic growth.

Abstract : Wireless Sensor Networks have emerged as technology of the 21st century and provide powerful combination of distributed sensing, computing and communication. With its growing application areas, particularly in mission-critical applications such as military monitoring systems and battlefield surveillance, security has become an important need in order to protect the sensitive data involved. This necessity of effective and efficient security techniques to secure sensor networks has attracted a great deal of researchers' attention making it hot research area in the recent years. Among the number of attacks on the sensor network, the Selective Forwarding attack, alias Grayhole attack, is a serious and hard-to-detect security attack that can render the network useless if left undetected. In this attack, the main goal of the attacker is to prevent the important sensitive data from reaching the base station. To achieve this goal, the malicious node selectively drops certain packets, based on some chosen criteria, and forwards the remaining. The attack becomes more effective when the attacker includes itself on the path of data flow. This paper intent to give an overview and analysis of existing approaches to counter selective forwarding attack in wireless sensor networks.

Abstract : Text categorization (also known as text classification or topic spotting) is the task of automatically sorting a set of documents into categories from a predefined set. Automated text classification is attractive because it frees organizations from the need of manually organizing document bases, but it can be too expensive or simply not feasible given the time constraints of the application or the number of documents involved. In the previous approaches only the Wikipedia concepts related to terms in syntactic level are used to represent document in semantic level. This paper proposes a new approach to represent semantic level with the use of Word Net. The semantic weight of terms related to the concepts from Wikipedia and Word Net are used to represent semantic information. The semantic vector space model of terms by combining the Word Net and Wikipedia is being further improved the classification accuracy of the Text classification. Because of, two different concept extractor are gives the concepts related to the terms in the syntactic level o find the better concept vector space for documents. So we obtain the improved classification by using this approach. In this study the classification framework are presented. In classification framework, the primary information is effectively kept and the noise is reduced by compressing the original information, so that this framework can guarantee the quality of the input of all classifiers. This proposed method can help to further improve the performance of classification framework by introducing Wikipedia with Word Net. We find that the proposed approach result in a high classification accuracy.

Country : India
Authors : Deepika Prashar
: 10.9790/0661-16463538     logo

Abstract : Iris recognition, a relatively new biometric technology, has great advantages such as variability, stability and security, thus it is the most promising for high security environments. Among its applications are border control in airports and harbors, access control in laboratories and factories, identification for Automatic Teller Machines and restricted access to police evidence rooms. There have been several implementations of security systems using biometric, especially for identification and verification cases. The term "biometrics" is derived from the Greek words bio (life) and metric (to measure). The pattern used in the biometric is the iris pattern in human eye. The iris pattern has been proved unique for each person. A literature review of the most prominent algorithms implemented in each stage is presented. This paper provides a review of major iris recognition researches. Keywords: Iris Recognition, Human eye, Normalization, Iris Localization, Matching.

Abstract : Cloud Computing is an latest up growing technology which provide various services to internet, it enables to store the data in to a cloud storage and the on demand scalable services. The users should use the cloud storage data as it is local without verifying its integrity and correctness of data. The public auditing for cloud storage is important, so that to check the integrity of outsourced data in the cloud, the users will take the action to check the integrity of data in a Intermediate Cloud Accessor (TPA) . To securely introduced an effective Intermediate Cloud Accessor (TPA), the auditing processor should bring an new concerns for user data privacy, for that the watermarking for data storage security in cloud computing is proposed. It supports data dynamics where users can perform various operations on data like insert, update and delete as well as batch auditing where multiple user request for storage correctness will be handled simultaneously which reduces the communication and computing cost.

Abstract : A mobile ad hoc network is a wireless commu- nication network, where communicating nodes are not within direct transmission range of each other. Since the radio links between the nodes break frequently, routing is a key issue in MANETs. The wide distribution of nodes makes MANETs vulnerable to malicious attacks. Hence huge researches are going on in this area. Efficient routing always conflicts with secure packet transmission. Both these issues are highly challenging in MANETs and should go by hand. The paper presents a technique to address this tradeoff. Malicious nodes interrupt the communication by dropping all the data packets. The paper is an Acknowledgment based Secure Routing Scheme in Malicious MANETs. According to this mechanism, the packet delivery is ensured even in the presence of malicious nodes. The main objective of this scheme is to achieve reliable data delivery in a malicious network. Performance of the proposed system is compared with the existing routing algorithm AODV using Network Simulator.

Abstract : Hadoop is a framework to handle large amount of data. Most important part of Hadoop architecture is Map Reduce method to process the distributed data and second most important part is Hadoop distributed file system to store distributed data. The way Hadoop framework handles or manipulates or extract data we can say that it is eco friendly because it provides same CPU time to all job using JOB FAIR SCHEDULING algorithm to save power or work energy. Similarly Hadoop frame work also shares Hadoop cloud using Capacitive scheduling algorithm. So, once again electric power is saved using resource sharing. We can save energy, resources, cost and materials also by using Green building techniques, solar energy and time sharing. In this way, we can save our environment or we will reduce the effect on environment by using Hadoop framework, Green building methods, renewable energy like wind and solar, resource sharing methods as well as by time sharing. So, Our Eco system is not affected or if affected then in minimized amount which can be ignore. So, we can say that Hadoop is a Eco friendly frame work.

Abstract : In Adhoc Network group communication is more important, in which routing protocols play a vital role for data transmission. With/Without using central server or access point, the Wireless network form a temporary network with collection of wireless nodes in which, each node changes randomly at different times. In order to establish data transmission between nodes, multiple hops are needed because of limited range i.e. transmission rate. In this paper, we have analyzed and simulated a proposed Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) using different routing protocols. The performances of different protocols are compared and analyzed using Optimum Network Performance (OPNET) simulator tool in which metrics like delay, throughput, packet delivery, load, Ethernet delay, are measured.

Abstract : Noise is an important factor which when get added to an image reduces its quality and appearance. So in order to enhance the image qualities, it has to be removed with preserving the textural information and structural features of image. There are different types of noises exist who corrupt the images. Selection of the de-noising algorithm is application dependent. Noise removal from a contaminated image signal is a prominent field of research and many researchers have suggested a large number of algorithms and compared their results. The main thrust on all such algorithms is to remove impulsive noise while preserving image details. These schemes differ in their basic methodologies applied to suppress noise. Some schemes utilize detection of impulsive noise followed by filtering whereas others filter all the pixels irrespective of corruption. In this section an attempt has been made for a detail literature review on the reported articles and studies their performances through computer simulation. We have classified the schemes based on the characteristics of the filtering schemes and described are below. At the end of paper, a comparative study of all these algorithms in context of performance evaluation is done and concluded with several promising directions for future research work.

Abstract : Cloud Computing refers to the many different types of services and applications being delivered in the internet cloud, and the fact that, in many cases, the devices used to access these services and applications do not require any special applications. Cloud Computing has been moves the application software and databases to the centralized large data centers, where the management of the data and services may not be fully trustworthy. This brings the problem of ensuring the integrity of data storage in Cloud. Cloud computing share distributed resources via network in the open environment thus it makes security problem. we consider the task of allowing a third party auditor (TPA), on behalf of the cloud client, to verify the integrity of the dynamic data stored in the cloud. The introduction of TPA eliminates the involvement of the client through the auditing of whether his data stored in the cloud are indeed intact, which can be important in achieving economies of scale for Cloud Computing. The support for data dynamics via the most general forms of data operation, such as block modification, insertion, and deletion, is also a significant step toward practicality, since services in Cloud Computing are not limited to archive or backup data only. While prior works on ensuring remote data integrity often lacks the support of either public auditability or dynamic data operations, this paper achieves both. We first identify the difficulties and potential security problems of direct extensions with fully dynamic data updates from prior works and then show how to construct an elegant verification scheme for the seamless integration of these two salient features in our protocol design. In particular, to achieve efficient data dynamics, we improve the existing proof of storage models by manipulating the classic Merkle Hash Tree construction for block tag authentication.

Abstract : Due to rapid development of the web there has been vast increase in the user generated contents available in the form of blogs ,product reviews sites, web- forums and online social networks etc. Such reviews are very useful to the companies, as they contain valuable information about what aspects of the product, are driving the sales up or down.But most of the available content is in the form of unstructured data from where extraction of information is a challenging task. In order to find potential risk, it is essential for companies to gather and analyze information about competitor products and strategies. Companies use opinion mining techniques to track customer's response, in order to efficiently market their products, identify new opportunities, weaknesses and manage their reputations. In this paper, brand status model is proposed based on the various parameters which affect brands reputation. Also, the products belonging to different brands will be compared on the basis of predefined aspects. This model uses aspect based sentiment analysis technique to find sentiments about product's features and brand.

Abstract : Hydrological data of Arki sub-watershed comprising an area of 2460 hectares of a hilly catchment of Upper River Gambhar, located in mid hills of Solan district of Himachal Pradesh were analyzed to study the geomorphological response for estimation of direct runoff by using GIUH model. GIUH model was based on storm basis incorporating geomorphological parameters with the hydrological characteristics of the watershed. Geomorphological parameters were derived from topographic maps of the watershed satisfying Horton's1 (1945) law when ordered according to Strahler2 (1957) ordering procedure. The GIUH of the watershed was calibrated using the observed direct runoff hydrograph data. Direct runoff hydrographs were obtained from GIUH and these were compared with the observed DRHs to judge the performance of the model. The model performed well for all the test data sets with high coefficient of efficiency, lower relative squared error and absolute relative error in computed peak flow rates values and near zero Coefficient of Residual Mass values. The percentage absolute error in time to peak between computed and observed direct runoff hydrograph was found to be zero percent. The performance of the model showed that it simulates components of direct runoff of hydrographs well.

Abstract : This paper proposes a novel compression combined digital image watermarking scheme based on singular value replacement technique. Image compression is achieved using Huffman encoding technique. Huffman encoding is an entropy encoding algorithm offering lossless image compression. The proposed watermarking scheme combines Integer wavelet transform (IWT) with singular value decomposition (SVD). For watermark embedding, the singular values (SV's) of high frequency (CD) band of cover images are replaced with the singular values of watermark signal. Choosing a sample image as watermark signal depends on the relation between energy of singular value of high frequency component of cover and sample image. The combination of Huffman encoding with IWT-SVD domain watermarking results in a robust watermarking scheme that provides good compression ratio with better signal quality. Experiments suggest that the watermarked and original images are perceptually similar. Also, watermarked images are robust against image processing distortions and geometrical attacks. Further, the recovered images are distortion free.
