Title : Saline Level Indicator
Country : India
Authors : Anusha Jagannathachari || Archana Rajan Nair

Abstract: This papers main aim would be to put forward the implementation of saline level indicator in the saline bottle using Internet of Things (IOT) as the platform. The proposed system comprises of IR sensors which is used to detect/ monitor some aspects in its surrounding. The IR sensor will act as a level sensor for monitoring the critical level of the saline in the saline bottle. Whenever the level of saline reaches a pre-defined critical level; the RF based automatic device alert and notification are sent to the hospital staff. The alert message will be sent through the use of internet to the nurses and doctors who are in charge for the patients. Along with that an alarm buzzer will also start ringing. The objective here is to present the design and implementation of saline indicator. This proposed system can be utilized efficiently in homes as well as in hospitals.

Abstract: Animals are important part of human life and they are to be taken care of. A proper, suitable and safe environment has to be provided to them with appropriate care of their diet. A system to track and monitor the animals remotely is required. This system should be intelligent enough to message the owner of the pet with the current situations, it should be able to supply animals with required amount of food and water, maintain the room temperature favored by the animal, live streaming of animals movement and behavior and should also be able to locate animal at a remote distance. Here we have developed the system with all this above mentioned features.

Abstract: In this paper a smart wheel chair has been proposed. The existing wheel chairs in use either makes the physically challenged person dependent on someone or has to use his own physical strength to move. The main purpose of this paper is to make physically challenged peoples life easy. With the proposed system user can control his movement on wheel chair with an android application without anybody's help. User can control his movement using voice recognition technique. User can either use sound or can use buttons to give input, with this even people with difficulty in moving hands and the people with speech impairment can use the system. With the proposed system user can be informed about the hurdles in his path and the hurdles are sensed by sensors. Collision with objects and accidents will be avoided with the proposed smart wheel chair, thus providing security to the disabled person.

Title : Study of String Matching Algorithm
Country : India
Authors : Prof. I.V.Srinivas || Moez Samnani, Mohammed Shafaat Shaikh

Abstract: In every text-editing application like notepad, MS Word, MS Excel, etc.there is a needof mechanism to find a particular pattern. The main objective of string or pattern searchingis to searchparticular pattern for position in a large body of text (e.g.from a book, a paragraph, a sentence, etc.). The purpose is to find occurrence of a text within another text. For example when we need to find some text in text editor it is a tough task to find that word or text manually. To make our task simple we simply press shortcut key Ctrl+F,which generates a pop up window where we can enter text which we need to search and it finds the occurrences of that particular text in the entire document. If matches found then it will highlight it all the occurrence of string which we are looking for otherwise it will display no matches found if there is zero occurrence of string.

Title : Implementation of Game theory in Software Testing
Country : India
Authors : Dr. Bharati Wukkadada || Akshay Pendbhaje

Abstract: We know errors in software development can occur at any stage of software development lifecycle. Later the error is identified more the correction cost is, however if error is made in earlier phase and detected early the cost of correction is less and if not solved early error is propagated in the later stages of lifecycle. These is based on an assumption that all the participants in the software development process are willing to make the software correctly at all the possible levels and not only their individual level. It is not possible for any individual to completely ignore personal goals. This results into conflict between team members of same software development team. In this paper we will analyze software development process as noncooperative game and try to understand hidden problems within it with help of game theory

Title : IOT In Home Grocery Management
Country : India
Authors : Akshay Pendbhaje || Prof. Sangeetha Rajesh

Abstract: Internet Of Things technology is changing our daily life by embedding sensors and actuators in all the appliances we use. The percepts from sensors are intelligently manipulated to make better decisions. Our system is introducing the use of Internet Of Things technology in the kitchen. In the current scenario, grocery shopping can be done online. But keeping track of the groceries is the main work of the person handling kitchen, failing which will result in insufficient items to cook. The system stated in this paper takes away this responsibility from the person handling kitchen. The objective of this paper is to propose a system which will track the availability of groceries in the kitchen. It also searches for better options of e-commerce sites with lower prices to order the product and displays the list on the user's Smartphone from where the user can order and procure those items. The test data is considered according to the daily usage of a grain in the kitchen.

Title : Pervasive Traffic Management Using OBDUINO & Cloud Server
Country : India
Authors : Priti S. Sharma || Prof. Sangeetha Rajesh

Abstract: Smart city portray a city that redesigned innovation so as to enhance the quality with less efforts. One approach to enhancing the Traffic Management Control is taking real time data about each vehicle and analyzes it to for different requirements of the traffic control system.Current traffic management system has many limitations because of lack of information gathering from vehicles. In this paper we propose an pervasive traffic management systemthatutilize information which is collected through OBDuino device and send to the data server and the client end. Information stored on the cloud server by utilizing Arduino Microchip and it is shown to the Traffic administration control. The arrangement of information ought to be characterized by the master learning and intelligible shape. By developing this proposed framework,the continuous information log will be accessible to client end as well as activity administration control framework.

Title : Comparison of Web and Mobile UTS E-Governance Application – A Case on Mumbai Railways
Country : India
Authors : Dr.Jaya Iyer || Dr.Sindhu Singh || Ranjan Tiwari || Deepak Yadav

Abstract: The advancement in the field of information technology has motivated the government to introduce E-Governance. E-Governance is a tool that uses ICT to deliver various government services to the citizen in a convenient way. The Government of India has introduced many e-governance projects to the citizens. Even though many services are implemented, the adoption rate is very low. To overcome this low usage, the government has introduced some of their services to mobile phones called as M-Governance. The main objective of this study is to identify the implementation challenges of e-Governance and m-Governance in Mumbai Railways-UTS (Unreserved Ticketing System), to understand and identify the problems in the existing system as well as to provide a suitable solution for the problems in UTS application.
