Speech Signal Processing
Nowadays, hands-free technology has been rapidly increasing in communication systems. It allows a natural form of communication, as if the communication partner was right next to you, the major problem in these systems is the addition of background noise. In this paper implemented beamforming methods for noise reduction in hands-free communication. A beamformer is an array of microphones, which can do spatial filtering. Speech data has been collected using linear microphone array and processed using delay-and-sum beamformer (DSB) and generalized side-lobe canceller (GSC) algorithms. The performance of these techniques analyzed using objective and subjective methods. It has been observed that the beamforming techniques are useful for hands-free communication.

Soil Aquifer Treatment System is one of method used for treating rural wastewater. SAT is used for treating various wastewaters. SAT is a geo-purification system which utilizes physical, chemical, biological processes during infiltration of wastewater effluent through soil strata to improve quality of water. A large section of people lives in villages and they are mainly engaged in agriculture. The scarcity of water which creates more problems in living organisms. Due to this problem treatment is adopted for reuse of water. SAT system provided maximum removal efficiencies for various parameters such as Total Suspended Solids 76.53%, for Total Dissolved Solids 84.97%, for Chemical Oxygen Demand 87.55%, for Biological Oxygen Demand 85.08%.

WiFi Signal analysis is a project which involved analyzing the WiFi traffic in and around Vishwakarma Institute of Technology. We present the details of the analysis and the results of our experiment on the WiFi using analyzer tool called InSSIDer .We have collected information about the WiFi in the form of packets and we have analyzed the captured packets to understand the nature and performance of the WiFi at Vishwakarma Institute of Technology. As WiFi is used all over the world for connecting the devices and for data sharing. But the spectrum provided for its transmission is less. So sometimes channels are overlapped getting less signal strength.
