The goal of this paper is to compute odometry of vehicle using low-level controls combined with inertial measurement unit. The Low-Level control includes design of Drive-by-Wire mechanisms for steering, brake and accelerator systems with appropriate motors and encoder. Experimentation with encoders and DC motors of steering and brake has been carried out first with various embedded modules to choose best suitable module. The experimentation has led to choosing BeagleBone Black (BBB), A low-cost, open-source community-supported development platform for real-time analysis provided by the TI Sitara AM3358 ARM Cortex-A8 processor with Linux-based operating system. Using BBB dedicated hardware module for high CPR (Counts per Revolution) encoders, the vehicle position is evaluated. Using BBB serial cape, it is interfaced to Roboteq motor controller (used for steering and brake motor) and steering encoder for steering wheel position control. The major task of the paper is the evaluation of odometry from using vehicle rear wheel encoders combined with inertial measurement unit. The paper is carried out on a dune buggy; petrol powered motor vehicle with Ackermann drive platform type and mobility. Initially, Drive-by-wire mechanism for steering, brake and accelerator is designed. Autonomous steering control of vehicle is carried out with feedback from steering motor encoder and steering hand wheel encoder connected to axle of steering system. Using IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) yaw angle and rear wheel axle encoder position value, the odometry of vehicle are computed. Combined with inertial measurement units, they have proven to be a precise and low-cost sensor for vehicle odometry evaluation.

The recent form of change in working on resources and platform introduced the term virtualization. Virtualization comes with its own merits and challenges. As it hides physical characteristics of the resources and the concept of encapsulation comes into picture. Hypervisor based architecture requires fewer hardware resources and can communicate more efficiently. All major players have introduced their hypervisor based solution to the virtualization. One of the challenges comes with it is the virtualization security.

GPRS with Android applied mobiles different control method
Energy consumption is major thing to be considered in day today life. There was an existing paper for this where the home appliances are controlled through remote operations and there was no usage of sensors in it. However, here we can control our home devices by our own anywhere through mobile application. Improve this project by using different sensors and android version mobiles with GPRS technology to control the devices. In this project we control the Home appliances like fan, gas cylinder in case of unwanted usages through GPRS with Android applied mobiles using temperature, gas, current, PIR sensors in a motto of energy conservation. A new approach is designed and implemented where we achieve an internet-based smart remote control system for home automation, purposely dedicated for power management that adapts power consumption to available power resources according to user comfort and cost criteria. Sensors and home appliances are connected to the controller, which is further interfaced with internet through an android applied mobile. Therefore, these devices can be monitored and controlled from every corner of the world through the Internet cloud. Added advantage is that the system is scalable and allows additional appliances to be added to it with no major changes to its core-processing segment.

Natural Ventilation in BIPV trombe wall
To reduce energy consumption in buildings, passive solutions have been developed greatly like increasing the insulation of exterior walls. One way to improve the energy efficiency of buildings is to design multi-functional facades that capture the energy available locally: the principle of hybrid envelopes, able to both isolate, protect, but also capture, store, transport energy. Our study is about a solar collector made up mainly of a photovoltaic cell (receiving surface) and a wall of storage. The goal of this work is to heat naturally the habitat using a system which ensures initially the cooling of PV-cell. In this paper a simulation model have been made for a BIPV trombe wall. Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) has been applied to predict air temperature and velocity in the room during December 10th. The simulations for three-dimensional model BIPV trombe wall is carried out using the climatic data of Tlemcen, Algeria. The temperature variations at certain nodes and slices have been interpreted. Simulation result values of indoor air temperature during December 10th are presented and shows the influence of our hybrid solar wall on the thermal behavior of the habitat.

The increase in fuel price due to inflation and the ruminative shortage in the supply of conventional fuels have led to a serious research and development on the alternate fuel sources. In India one of the option is plant which are available in plenty and can be used as bio fuels. The current utilization of non-edible oilseeds which are available is very low. Bio diesel from ‘Mahua’ seed is one option. ‘Mahua’ is known as ‘Illupaimaram’ in Tamil and ‘Hippi’ in Kannada, can be successfully grown in wastelands and dry lands. The seeds of the tree are popularly known as Indian butter tree. In this work, experiments were carried out to study and analyses the emission, combustion and performance characteristics of the mahua methyl esters. For the analysis, the setup consisting of a single cylinder, water-cooled, four stroke diesel engines is used. Initially the engine is run with the diesel fuel and the performance was analyzed. Then the experiments were conducted with blended fuels, mahua methyl esters (B20, B40 and B60) , added in volume basis, and the performance was analyzed. All the tests were conducted with varying conditions of load over the entire range of engine operation. The engine performance parameters such as the BTE (Brake thermal efficiency), SFC (Specific fuel consumption), and emission from exhaust (CO2, CO, NOx, HC and O2) were recorded. The results of the selected mahua mixtures are compared with the neat diesel fuel. Engine performance using the mahua oil and its blends were on par with the experiments performed using pure diesel fuel at most of the loads. The carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbon (HC) emissions of the mahua oil and its blends were found to be lower than that of the diesel fuel at all loads. The carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions were higher for mahua oil blends than that of pure diesel fuel at all loads.

In this experimental study Brake Thermal Efficiency of a variable compression ratio (VCR) Diesel engine operating with diesel and Pongamia pinnata oil blends were studied under different five different loading conditions (0,3,6,9 & 12 kg), two compression ratio (17:01 & 18:01) and three different Pongamia pinnata oil blends (B10, B15 & B20) which are blended with diesel by volumetric basis (100 ml Pongamia pinnata oil: 900 ml pure Diesel, 150 ml Pongamia pinnata oil: 850 ml pure Diesel, 200 ml Pongamia pinnata oil: 800 ml pure Diesel) respectively. For comparative purpose initially the engine was run by pure Diesel. This study shows that the Brake Thermal Efficiency is maximum (34.14%) when the engine operates with Pongamia pinnata oil (B15 blend) which was blended with pure Diesel on full load conditions (12 kg) and compression ratio of 18:01. This study shows that the Brake Thermal Efficiency is minimum (1.31 %) when the engine operates with Pongamia pinnata oil (B15 blend) which was blended with pure Diesel on no load conditions (0 kg) and compression ratio of 17:01.

Design & Analysis
Linkages have an advantage of easily modifying their output by suitable adjustments compared to cams and geared mechanisms. But at the same time it is usually difficult to change the dimensions of mechanisms every time to do different tasks. Also we cannot synthesize exactly the necessary mechanism because of limitation of maximum precision points. This problem is addressed by using adjustable Crank-Rocker linkages that are capable of generating multiple paths with a simple adjustment of the length of the rocker guider. Little work has been done in the area of synthesis of adjustable four-bar and six bar linkages for function and continuous path generation, especially of adjustable crank-rocker linkages. The present work is an attempt to synthesize adjustable eight bar mechanism to overcome this difficulty. The link lengths are computed using Cheybychev’s spacing and Fruedenstein’s equations. A procedure is developed to compute the values of design variable which satisfies the input – output relationship. Analytical and programmable method is developed in Matlab to generate desired function and path.

Searching for the best soil stabilizers to overcome the problem occurs by the clayey soils and sandy soils are still being the main concern, not only to achieve the required soil engineering properties but also by considering the cost and the effect to the environment. This research work presents the efficiency of sodium based alkaline activators as an additive in improving the engineering characteristics of cohesive and cohesion less soil. Investigations have been done in order to evaluate the effectiveness as soil stabilizer which involved the use of sodium hydroxide as chemical additive and concentrations of 1,2,4,8 molar were used. These materials were discussed in this paper and their effectiveness for stabilizing the soil were observed from the obtained results only in terms of strength and shear parameters like cohesion and angle of friction by conducting unconfined compressive test, California bearing test and direct shear test. The strengths of soil and their shear parameters were significantly increased with the use of sodium hydroxide as chemical additive and supposed they have the potential as effective soil stabilizers in field application.

Power system
The maintenance and reliability of the power system has become a major aspect of study. The existing network is mechanically controlled, though we provide control and protection system which are electronics, computer, microcontroller based but the signal which is provided to the circuit where final action is carried out is completely mechanically controlled which reduced efficiency of the system. The solution is the use of FACTS devices especially the use of unified power flow controller (UPFC).The FACTS is nothing but to make system more flexible to adapt the variation due to occurrence of faults. In this paper the study of UPFC with its mathematical modeling. Second, the operation of control system used in its converters is also studied. Finally by help of modeling of a power system in MATLAB and by installing UPFC in transmission link, its use as power flow controller and voltage injection is seen. Conclusion is made on different results i.e. voltage profile, phase angle and active and reactive power to see the benefit of UPFC in power system. The paper explains the basic theory and operating characteristics of the unified power flow controller with mathematical modeling of photovoltaic system and then this model is implemented to three phase system.

This paper aims to study the measurement of effectiveness of TPM implementation in manufacturing and service industries. Here an attempt was made to discuss the previous literature related to the TPM implementation and OEE measurement. The review was done based on a range of journals related to TPM, published in last 10 years, specifically related to TPM implementation and OEE improvement. These TPM papers were studied for the improvement in performance of the equipment by TPM implementation. In this review, OEE is found to be an effective tool for measuring the effectiveness of TPM implementation in most of the industries. It was found that improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is one of the main benefits in TPM implementation and it has been discussed in most of the literature. Improvement in OEE can be observed through the improvement in the availability, performance rate and quality rate as a result of TPM implementation. The review revealed that OEE improvement can be achieved by TPM implementation.

Limestone is mainly constituent of chemical compound calcium carbonate (CaCo3). It is basically called sedimentary rock substance. As per researchers it forms 10% of total volume of Sedimentary rock. The extrusion & Implementation of limestone in any form deals with ease of work and as a less pollutant for Environment, hence it can be massively used and utilized as a replacement to coarse aggregate in construction. This study deals with introduction of usage of local available limestone aggregates in concrete mix as a replacement for using normal coarse aggregates. In this research article Effect of limestone aggregate on Fresh and Hardened properties of high strength concrete were discussed, Substitution of the Local Available and Naturally occurring limestone aggregates as an Partial replacement for normal coarse aggregate material made for M50 grade .Adopting a suitable W/C ratio, Number of Specimens were casted and tested for different ages. The tests were conducted on casted specimens and results were discussed in detail in the discussion part of the article. From the test results, it clearly shows that usage of limestone aggregates in concrete will lie in range between 50% - 75 % replacements for M50. On further addition of Limestone aggregates in concrete it leads to decrease in strength properties and swelling is observed cause of repulsive charges of aggregates.

As the number of vehicle increases on this earth, the traffic also increases which leads to scarcity of parking. Studies shows that 30% of traffic is in urban area is due to drivers looking for parking and not able to find proper parking location. The technology makes traffic management very easy using some sensors in the smart phones only. Application of smart phone sensors for checking parking availability is easy to implement idea since everyone nowadays carries Smartphone with them. In this paper we have discussed some available parking management applications and explained their limitations. we have proposed an system for parking availability using GPS sensor and Accelerometer sensor and implemented using android. Its limitations are discussed and future work is suggested.

Welding of Plastic
This work has been carried out to study the effect of some welding parameters on the desired response in the Poly Vinyl Chloride work piece welding by hot air technique. There are three input variables i.e. hot air temperature, welding speed and air flow rate which has been evaluated on the Cross Breaking Load of the welded joints. The mathematical Modelling is developed using the analysis of variance (ANOVA) and experimental Modelling. Plots of significant factors and experimental Modelling have been used to validate the experimental values to the predicted values with the help of developed mathematical relation. This equation is further use to find the input variable values for desired output variable.

Speaker Recognition
In this paper we explain the multilingual speaker identification system. Speaker identification is conducted on 3 Indian languages (Hindi, Marathi and Rajasthani). We create a database of 25 person in each language. In our system we use 3 different sentences and each sentence in 3 language. We focus on the effect of language mismatch in the speaker identification performance of individual languages and all languages together. Mel Frequency Cepstrum Coefficient (MFCC) is used for feature extraction. The standard SVM-based speaker identification is used.

EDM Process
Electro Discharge Machining (EDM) is used for machining electrically conducting /semi conducting, tough and brittle material .This process is best suited for making intricate cavities and contour, dies, section of complex geometry, moulds. The work piece material selected for this study is mild steel and tool is copper electrode. Dielectric flow rate, discharge current, pulse on time, pulse off time is considered as input parameters. In the present work ANOVA analysis is used to study the significance of process variable on Material Removal Rate (MRR) and Tool Wear Rate (TWR) by using simple conduction equations, we can calculate the energy transferred to each for material removal rate and tool wear rate. Also energy transferred to work piece, tool and dielectric fluid can be calculated by using conduction equation, convection equation, energy carried away by debris, and the best suited input parameters can be found for the maximum energy transfer to work piece. After than energy responsible for tool wear were calculated and the optimum parameter are found in order to minimize the tool wear The energy distribution in the electrical discharge machining (EDM) process is most important phenomenon for study the variation of fraction of input discharge energy with the help of thermo-mathematical models during EDM of mild steel by varying the machining parameter current and pulse duration.

construction technology and mangement
Construction projects are a balance between cost, time and quality. It is possible to have high quality and low cost, but at the expense of time, and conversely to have high quality and a fast project, but at a cost. If both time and money are restricted, then quality is likely to suffer. High quality is not always the primary objective for the client; time or cost may be more important. It is only realistic to specify a very high standard of quality if the budget is available to achieve that standard. The need for KPI in construction projects has increased considerably in recent times due to significant changes, advancements in technology and high expectation of the users. The KPI maintain uniformity in construction process and ensure more economical utilization of materials resulting in significant reduction in cost to the users. This type of study has become necessary when the construction industry is encountering a quality issues day by day. Critical parameters or key indicators are necessary to introduce at planning stage when PQP is preparing which divert us to concentrate for quality. This study is carried out by questionnaire and Delphi techniques on quality of certain important activities. This study leads to know critical parameters or key indicators of an activity and their contribution. These indicators can be used for internal qualitative improvement which ultimately improves business, reputation.

Escalators
The study in this paper describes retrospective view of the escalator accidents. It also deals with the epidemiology of escalator allied injuries among adults and even in children from the delineation of Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS). Invention of escalators has facilitated the travel of passengers in large number. It strengthened the power of technology at the same time it frightened the pedestrians, remembering that it is dangerous if it is used in a careless manner. Work in this paper gives a clear cut view of the escalator linked accidents, preventive measures required to overcome the fear called "escalator-accident". This paper also gives the classification of the escalator accidents in terms of age groups of the people using escalators and also in terms of escalator correlated injuries. It also describes the percentage distribution of the accidents among different age grouped people. CPSC has found that the escalator implicated accidents are more in number than those compared with that of the elevator related accidents. Escalator linked injuries occur more frequently and this frequency of occurrence results in significant trauma.

Data leakage ad security of data is an essential component of cloud computing, most of the data has been proceed through third party application (TPA) and user are unaware about the security essentials. The internet based computing model provide shared resource to provide data on demand, such model provide service over the internet with computing resources. The TPA who expertise and provide crossing point between the user and the cloud service provider who facilitate service between them, the data store over cloud is passes through TPA in plain text and then it encrypted using the third party application. It might be possible that data can easily leaked over the internet, in this paper the proposed approach is to detect when the distributor’s sensitive data has been leaked by agents, and if possible to identify the agent that leaked the data. Perturbation is a very useful technique where the data is modified and made less sensitive before being handed to agents and encryption algorithm SHA provide security of sensitive data before uploading over the internet cloud. The proposed model also provide security of data before uploading through TPA and after successfully upload data the secret key is shared with original user without intercepting TPA.

Societal Advertisement
Advertising has persuasive and powerful influence on society. It is also called a social process. It contributes substantially to social marketing. Both the profit and not-for-profit making organizations have been found using this tool to inform and persuade prospects. The multi-dimensional role of advertisement makes it a powerful and impact generating tool. The advertisements meant for social awareness are often seen in audio-visual media. A large group of viewers and readers come across it every day. People are not completely ignorant about the various social issues and evils prevailing in the society. The need of the hour is proper utilization of the funds and aid provided by Government for betterment of society. This could be achieved by mass communication and creating mass awareness in the target population.

While preparing the composite preform in the powder metallurgy Lab, the various defects due to porosity, open crack and residual stresses are possible. This may lead to poor life and strength of materials. It is difficult to predict the defects in the form of pores physically in the powder metallurgy Lab. To simplify this kind of problem, the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) images are generated from the powder composites and are segmented using region growth approach to find the distribution of pores. Normally, the composite preforms are being produced through various processes like mechanical milling, mixing, compaction, sintering and hot extrusion. In this study, Cu–(5–20%) W composite preforms, with a preform density of 94% are prepared. The pore size in term of coverage area, perimeter during different sintering atmospheres are derived. Further, the porosity is reduced during extrusion process. The results of SEM images are compared before and after sintering and extrusion process. This kind of work will aid the manufacturing process of material parts in predicting their strength and life time.
