Mobile at the Forefront of Hotel Technology happen in 40 years, but when it comes to technology, 40-years is like going back to the days of Moses or the Roman Empire." Richard Goodwin... and it's true. While the mobile phone has been around since the 70's, it wasn't really until the launch of Apple's iPhone in 2.007 that the mobile space rapidly changed forever. Apple's iPhonc was responsible for popularising applications with millions of consumers, helped make touchscreen.............

Abstract: TMulti-focus image fusion is a technique of combining two images of the same scene with diverse focuses into a single image. The single fused image has greater depth of field than each of the input images. The multi-focus image fusion technique seeks to provide an effective activity level measurement to evaluate the clarity of source images. It finds application in various fields such as remote sensing, optical microscopy, medical diagnostics, forensic and defense departments. This review article presents an exhaustive list of methods that can be applied in the multi-focus image fusion process..............

Abstract: Practically every side of our lives is packed by information. Malware is the annoying project that influences PC operation and sensitive data of the host framework. The goal is to protect such information and keep malware from imparting fake data into network stack. The new strategy cryptographic provenance verification utilizes a property known as information provenance respectability which enhances the trustiness of the framework and its information. The framework security is improved at kernel level. CPV makes utilization of trusted stage module for discovery of fake data. With CPV.............

Abstract: Human Action Recognition is one of the important research area in computer vision and image processing field. A machine can be interacted and controlled by gestures and facial expression using the visual modality. Human action recognition can be seen as a bridge for machines to understand human body language, an intelligent interacting system between machines and humans which limits majority of input devices such as keyboard and mouse. Thus, producing an accurate and meaningful information on human activities and behaviours is one of the important tasks in pervasive computing. In this survey, we tried to focus on advancement of action recognition after yr. 2010..

Abstract: The exponential growth of information in the internet over the last decade forces the researchers to think alternate solutions to provide better user service, reduce network bandwidth and reduced user perceived latency. Web Cache is the most promising technique for improving the web performance. Cache replacement is one of the important attributes to be addressed for better results. This paper proposes traditional cache replacement polices LRU, LFU and RR and examines its effectiveness in conjunction with different Cache Size. The results shows that LRU is most promising than other two methods in terms of HR , BHR and LSR and cache Size is definitely influence the effectiveness of the Cache Replacement Algorithms.

Title : Eyelid Phase Shift and Difference Map Algorithm for Gaze Pattern Estimation
Country : India
Authors : K. Rathi || Dr. K. Srinivasan
: 10.9790/0661-1904066474     logo

Abstract: Eye gaze provides a vital sign for vision-based intelligent systems to recognize the human visual attention, emotion, feelings and so on. A different gaze estimation method employs local or global features as eye. But it failed to work well under natural light and it is still hard to obtain accurate gaze pattern for human vision recognition. In order to improve the gaze pattern estimation, Eyelid Phase shift Momentum based Difference MapAlgorithm (EPSM-DMA) is introduced. The EPSM-DMA technique captures the various eye images from the dataset. Initially, the Eyelid Phase shift Momentum technique is applied in EPSM-DMA to measure the movement of the eyelid for detecting the gaze pattern...........

Abstract: Managing attendance is a very important record-keeping activity in any institution. The lapses recorded in traditional methods of recording and managing attendance has therefore necessitated the development of an automated system for this task. The integration of Radio Frequency Identification(RFID) with fingerprint biometric technology was used to enhance the security level and integrity of the records. The system does not only speed up the process of taking attendance but reduces error and allows for faster verification of student attendance, all with minimal human interaction.
