Spoofing attack against biometric systems is still an important issue. Face spoofing is a form of attack that is presenting a fake sample to the acquisition sensor with facial information of a valid user. Compared to various attacks against fingerprint, speech or iris recognition systems, the ubiquitous nature of image acquisition devices, such as cameras and smartphones, allows attackers to acquire facial images of a user easily and discretely. This paper presents a literature survey on spoof detection methods and proposes a method to detect whether the input face is spoofed or not. Edge Adaptive Hybrid Filter is used for image enhancement and Naive Bayes classifier is used for classification to detect spoofed face.

Simulation and Value Stream Mapping
Value stream mapping is a lean tool which is used in lean manufacturing to find the flow of information and material, as a product it makes way through value stream. These envision tool helps to understand processes by using of stream lined work process. In these paper value stream maps of a process by using simulation is developed. By creating dynamic value stream maps makes it possible to analyze and optimize more complex systems than traditional VSM. Simulation can be used with value stream mapping to give it power and flexibility in order to dynamically change the state of the system. The study is conducted in milk processing plant, in particular a company who manufacture dairy based products. The aim is to identify extent of waste and how these can be reduced and/or eliminated from the value stream and consequently promoting Green Manufacturing. The benefits are visualized with the help of simulation which can reap long term yield for the manufacturers.

This project is to design and develop a digital notice board using Arduino modem. The project is based on Arduino with VGA Shield for sending and receiving messages. It consists of two sections: the transmitting section and the receiving section. The software of this model is prepared by using the java language. This notice board is implemented in classrooms for displaying messages and as the message will arrive on the board there will be a beep sound which will be a signal that some message has been arrived on the board. Notice board is a very primary & a basic requirement for every institution. It is also used in railway station, bus stations and many more places. Because sticking notices on everyday basis is a difficult task, so this technology makes the job easier and gives us the way towards the implementation of advanced and modern board for displaying notices and messages. The three modules which is used for this project is namely, Arduino IDE, Visual Studio, Displaying monitor.

Quality Control (Six Sigma)
This research paper deals with a case study of Piston Rod. Rejection of Piston Rod was the main problem in company due to defects of pitting; porosity etc. DMAIC approach (Six Sigma Methodology) was used to reduce the defects and increase the productivity. Plasma Nit riding of AISI 4140 Alloy Steel was carried out at plasma nitration technology. The effect of temperature on the surface hardness and microstructure was investigated along with their corrosion resistance. The Plasma (Ion) Nit riding technology shows a clear orientation towards future developments. Hence, it ideally satisfies current and future industrial demands for economical and efficient solutions to the treatment of surfaces. It is also an answer to social demands for improved environmental protection. In the second phase the collected data was validated by collecting sampling during production hours, which helped in representing a true picture of defects, occurred after Plasma Nit riding. Finally an analysis was done using Six Sigma technique. Then, the cause and effect diagram was used to explore possible causes of defects through a brainstorming session and to determine the causes which had major effect. Some corrective measures are also suggested to overcome these defects. Six-Sigma, mainly based on customer needs & expectation with the use of facts & statistics, analysis & responsible approach to managing & improving current business, manufacturing capacity & services is applicable to such cases. Tools of six sigma methodology are used to improve the process by enhancing the quality of product. This paper draws attention towards adoption of six sigma methodology in manufacturing organization with the case study. This is successfully achieved by implementing DMAIC Methodology.

Pedestrians, bicyclist and two wheelers are the vulnerable road users. The potential for problem reduction was specified for three target groups of vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists, two-wheelers (i.e. motorcyclists and riders of mopeds). Walkers and cyclists has great potential to contribute to high government agendas for more sustainable development. Walking is usually the first and last mode used, providing an important link between land use and motorized travel. Bicycle is the pedal-powered two wheeler. An important subject in the study is to consider in what way safety problems of pedestrians, cyclists and two-wheelers might be related to the fact that these modes are not integrated automatically in the planning for traffic. Rajkot is the center of the Saurashtra region of Gujarat state. In addition, population dramatically increased for huge number of urban migration. But there is very lack of vulnerable road user’s facilities and which are available those are not proper. Facilities are very poor in some of the areas in Rajkot cities like Gondalchowk. Gondalchowk is the starting and ending point of the BRTS corridor. GondalChowk is connected with the national highway. Finally, On the basis of survey(Road inventory, pedestrian interview, classified volume count, pedestrian volume count),and it’s analysis measure have proposed which should be required immediately for safe, efficient and appropriate movement of huge number of pedestrian at selected intersection.

The Home automation technology is set to revolutionize the way people perceive digital devices in our homes and office environment. Now they are no longer just the individual devices, instead, with the HA technology, they form a network in which appliances can communicate with each other. This wireless technology is especially useful in home environment, where there exists hardly any infrastructure to interconnect intelligent appliances.
These days convenience and easy work environment is what everyone is looking for. Home automation is one such technology which gives us
•	Convenience
•	Safety and security
•	Fun and Enjoyable environment
In the proposed system, the user will have a GUI application in his android phone with which he can control and monitor the home devices. A master control unit placed at home receives the control messages over the internet and sends it over to the corresponding devices over zigbee network. As the control and monitoring devices being developed are battery powered, there will not be an issue of availability of power sockets. The message transactions between the smart phone and home are through a cloud server, which will manage the users and the devices to be controlled or monitored. The user authentication is done in the cloud server.

The solute-solvent interactions of L-Cysteine and L-Methionine have been studied pH metrically in various concentrations (0.0-60.0% v/v) 1, 4-Dioxane-water mixture maintaining an ionic strength of 0.16 mol L-1 at ambient conditions. The protonation constants have been calculated with the computer program MINIQUAD75 and the best fit chemical models are selected based on statistical parameters. Linear variation of step-wise protonation constants (log K) with reciprocal of dielectric constant of the solvent mixture has been attributed to the dominance of the electrostatic forces. Protonation equilibria and effect of influential parameters on the protonation constants have also been presented.

Disc Brakes
The design of an electromagnetic disc brake requires a multidisciplinary approach. Its performance is an outcome of usage of concepts from various fields viz. mechanical, electrical, magnetic and material engineering. This paper describes a new type of electromagnetic disc brake for retarding the motion of a vehicle. In this study, a comprehensive design procedure for electromagnetic disc brake is presented to ensure maximum efficiency along with effective braking. Varied magnetic materials are discussed in terms of minimizing the cost while meeting electromagnetic performance characteristics. An analytical model is developed to optimize braking effort with combination of input current and voltage using sensors and voltage regulator, wear and tear of brakes, maintenance. Calibration between spring expansion(output) and source voltage(input) is derived for prompt operation of the brakes. Also, structural analysis of nodal forces on the cross-structure and brake disc is also carried out to ensure reliability. The analytical results so obtained are within the acceptable range for braking.

Automobile
In today’s world due to Modern development and economical progression there is increase in number of cars on roads. Because of increase in number of cars, car parking is the major problem faced in most parts of the country. In a typical front wheel steering system the rear wheel do not turn in the direction of the curve . In situations like low speed cornering, vehicle parking and driving in city conditions with heavy traffic in tight spaces, high speed lane changing would be very difficult due to vehicle’s larger wheelbase and track width which brings high inertia and traction into consideration. Due to this the efficiency of two wheel steering reduces. Hence there is a requirement of a mechanism which result in less turning radius and increase stability and it can be achieved by implementing four wheel steering mechanism instead of regular two wheel steering. Implementing 4WS allows the vehicle to turn in a significantly smaller radius, sometimes judgmental for large trucks or vehicles with trailers. 4-wheel steering is a system employed by some vehicles to improve steering response, increase vehicle stability while steering at high speed and to decrease turning radius at low speed. It also helpful in avoiding skidding as well as parking problems occurs in metro cities, highways and in rural areas.

Heat Transfer
Numerical study was carried out to study effect of different discrete rib arrangements on heat transfer performance. These rib arrangements include variously angled ribs, different. Spacing and also different angle combinations. Standard k-ε model is used for turbulence modelling. This study is carried out at Reynolds no. 22384 which was selected from previous studies. Different rib arrangements like inline and staggered for 30⁰, 45 and 60, discrete V’s arrangement with different spacing, diamond like discrete rib arrangement with half and complete obstruction, inline and staggered connected V’s and angle combination rib arrangements are studied numerically in this study. It is observed that 45 inline V-shape rib arrangement shows better Thermal Enhancement Factor (TEF) as compared to other arrangements and value of TEF is observed to be 1.0011. Ribs arranged in discrete V’s shape with different spacing shows comparatively less heat transfer enhancement.

Adhoc Network(VANET)
The future application of vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) will be event driven and it will delivered different types of events to moving vehicles within a specified time. In this paper we propose publish-subscribe based communication framework for such environments in which vehicles subscribes to the service provider (SP) through Roadside units. Only a finite number of events can disseminate at a time, it has a cost associated with it. The formulations of RSUs are done to schedule the disseminations of events using two scheduling problems. The first problem aims to maximizing the number of subscriptions. The problem is to maximizing and matches the number of subscriptions, also aims to minimize the total cost of disseminating the events. The offline and online algorithms are designed for the problems that a service provider can execute to schedule event dissemination from the RSUs. Detailed simulations results are presented to show that the algorithms are able to match a high percentage of subscription with low average event dissemination cost for some realistic city traffic scenarios.
