Authors: W. Klongdee, W. Ieosanurak

Pages: 526-531

Abstract: This paper focuses centroid of a triangle for a face classification. We propose a simple, fast, uncomplicated and effective classification method for a face grayscale image based on principal component analysis (PCA) in grayscale of face images. Any triangle is generated from three points, which are obtained from the combination of m (a number of image per class) distinct points taken from the same class. The classification criteriais minimum the distance between the tested image and the centroid of the triangle. The proposed method tests on the Grimace and faces94 databases. The recognition rate is compared with the nearest neighbor (NN), the nearest feature line (NFL), the shortest feature line segment (SFLS), the restricted nearest feature line with ellipse (RNFL), and the nearest and the center of ellipse (NCE). The proposed algorithm shows high performance and it has recognition rate over 90%. Moreover Time spent on the experiment of the proposed algorithm is less than other algorithms.

Title of the Paper: Image Feature Matching Based on Improved SIFT Algorithm


Authors: Jing Li

Pages: 500-504

Abstract: Image matching is a very important technology in the field of computer vision and image processing. SIFT algorithm can process feature matching issues between two images such as translation, rotation, scale change and illumination changes, and can have stable feature matching ability for perspective changes and affine changes to a certain extent. But SIFT feature matching also faces some problems, such as: more extracted image feature points, matching point redundancy, easiness to mismatch, large storage space and time-consuming matching etc. Therefore, this paper studies and improves SIFT algorithm to put forward an image feature matching by improved SIFT algorithm, and improves SIFT algorithm by combining the region extraction method to eliminate some unstable feature points beforehand, and extract the same target areas of two images before the matching, and then the area matching, and then match such region to reduce the SIFT feature points and increase the matching efficiency. Experiments show that such algorithm, based on the unchanged SIFT algorithm basic characteristics, has such advantages as large amount of matching points, no repeating point and higher matching efficiency, thus providing precise matching point for the image follow-up processing.

Title of the Paper: Color Correction for Panorama Video Surveillance


Authors: Jun Cheng, Wei Dai, Tianyin Liu

Pages: 452-457

Abstract: In panorama surveillance video, color inconsistency among different cameras always exists because of imperfect camera calibration, different reflection functions, CCD noise, etc. Since color inconsistency greatly reduces rendering quality of panorama surveillance video, a hybrid color correction method by combining the region matching with the gamma correction and the linear correction is proposed in this paper. Firstly, two frames from two adjacent cam-eras are matched using point feature correspondences and the overlapping areas are located by the homography. Secondly, the images in the overlapping areas are segmented into regions by marker-controlled watershed transformation and regions are matched using point feature correspondences. Finally, the color-corrected frame is generated from the combination of gamma correction for the luminance component and linear correction for the chrominance components of corresponding regions in the YUV color space. Experimental results show that the performance of color correction for panorama video is visually acceptable. This method can be improved the market competitiveness of panoramic video surveillance products.

Title of the Paper: Neuro-Fuzzy Control of Vehicle Active Suspension System


Authors: Haifa Souilem, Nabil Derbel

Pages: 423-431

Abstract: Adaptative Neuro-fuzzy controller (ANFIS) is applied in order to control vibration of vehicle’s suspensions for full suspension system which comes from road roughness. Moreover, the full vehicle system has seven degrees of freedom on the vertical direction of vehicle’s chassis, on the angular variation around X- axis and on the angular variation around Y- axis. The approach of the proposed controller is to minimize vibrations which are made on the road roughness. On the other hand, standard PID controller is also used to control whole vehicle’s suspension system for comparison. Consequently, random road roughnesses are used as disturbance of control system. Simulation results show that this control exhibited an improved ride comfort and good road holding ability and indicated that the proposed control system has superior performance at adapting random road disturbance for vehicle’s suspension.

Title of the Paper: Influence of Transient Recovery Voltage from the Parasitic Inductance in Grading Capacitors of Vacuum Circuit Breaker with Triple-interrupters


Authors: Xianghao Zeng, Haichuan Zhang, Jiyan Zou, Zhihui Huang

Pages: 416-422

Abstract: Under the condition of power frequency, the influence of the parasitic inductance in grading capacitor which connects with multi-vacuum interrupters in parallel is negligible, but when the breakers are opened by power grid break down, the TRV (Transient Recovery Voltage) will appear in high frequency, and the influence of the parasitic inductance on TRV will occur. In this paper, the model of post arc resistance will be established within the research of VCB (Vacuum Circuit Breaker) with triple-interrupters as background, then do simulation on the effect on TRV with different parasitic inductance value by ATP DRAW. When the inductance value is lower than 13μH, the wave form of TRV can be seen as sinusoidal variation, and when the inductance value is higher than 13μH, it can be seen as linear variation with the increase of inductance. As the inductance increased, the influence of voltage sharing is not obvious, but because of the existence of the parasitic inductance, there are inhibitory effects for the rate of TRV in 4μs after the interrupter breaking. At last, the module of VCB with triple interrupters is established, and the correctness of simulation results is proved by experiments.

Authors: Taiyuan Ruan, Hao Zhou, Zhiyong Liu

Pages: 412-415

Abstract: Under the urban arterial traffic coordination control, in order to ensure the formation of phase difference between the road intersections, the signal cycle of each intersection must be same. The vehicle queue length in the intersections is determined by the green time of each phase when the cycle is fixed. However, to optimize the green ratio quickly and effectively in each cycle is difficult. In this paper, we proposed a constrained Iterative Learning Control(ILC) method to solve this problem.In order to verify its effectivenes, six experiments are carried out to investigate the efficiency of ILC and constrained ILC for differernt traffic load under the arterial coordination control. The simulation results show: the control efficiency is higher under the constrained ILC than that under the ILC. In each cycle, the constrained ILC can calculate the optimum green ratio according to the vehicle queue length in the last cycle.So the constrained ILC presented in this paper,can optimize the green ratio effectively for different traffic load in a fixed cycle, it can minimize the vehicle queue length.

Title of the Paper: Enhancement of Bandwidth Efficiency for SLM SC-FDMA MIMO with Side Information


Authors: A. Khelil, D. Slimani, L. Talbi, J. LeBel

Pages: 405-411

Abstract: This paper presents a modified selective mapping (MSLM) based on the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction technique for the single carrier frequency division multiple access with multiple input multiple output uplink system (SC-FDMA MIMO). The main idea of the proposed scheme is to use the same phase vectors for all antennas unlike the conventional scheme when each antenna has its own phase vectors. The branches of the same rang of all NT transmitting antennas are then multiplied point to point by the same phase vector. Then, the signal with minimum PAPR of each antenna is chosen to be transmitted. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme can achieve the same PAPR reduction performance as that of the conventional SLM SC-FDMA MIMO technique with 50% reduction on terms of number of side information bits and bandwidth degradation. Hence, it improves the bandwidth efficiency of the system. However, no improvement of the computational complexity is achieved over the conventional SLM SC-FDMA MIMO.

Pages: 379-386

Abstract: In this paper, we argue that the improved the performance of speech recognition in mobiles communication system, in order to improve the performance of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems, we have achieved by two modules Front-End or feature extractor used and a Back-End or recognizer. The Front-End we have used MFCC-MT (Multitaper Frequency Cepstral Coefficients features) and Gabor features GF-MFCC, are the result of their ability to extract discriminative internal representations that are robust to the many sources of variability in speech signals so to reduce spectral variations and correlations. In the back-end we have investigated different systems of classification in the field of speech using three systems: CHMM (Continues Hidden Markov Models), DNN (Deep Neural Network) and HMM-DNN hybrid. We have examined the DNN, which is usually used to reduce spectral variations and the spectral correlations that exist in model signals. Furthermore, we focused particularly on HMM-DNN in continuous speech recognition tasks of the large Arabic vocabulary, and we gave more emphasis to the optimal number of the hidden units and the best feature of input for DNN as well. Our findings show that HMM-DNN can achieve consistently almost 8% of clean speech, 13% of AMR-NB coder and 8.5% of DSR coders. The system was trained using the 3hour training set 440 sentences with 20 speakers with labels generated by Viterbi alignment from a maximum likelihood ML trained CHMM system using the HTK toolkits.

Title of the Paper: An Efficient Communication Protocol for Wireless Sensor Network Using Differential Encoding Based Compressed Sensing Technique


Authors: A. Parnasree Chakraborty, B. Tharini Prasad

Pages: 356-366

Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are typically resource constrained network due to restricted parameters like power supply, processing speed, memory requirement and bandwidth required for communication. Energy consumption is a key issue in the design of protocols and algorithms for WSNs due to their limited power supply. WSN operations involve sensing of data, computation, switching from node to node, transmission etc. In all these operations, energy efficiency is very essential. It is found in literature that, most of the energy is consumed in WSNs is due to the radio communications. In radio communication if the number of bits of data to be transmitted is reduced by some amount then it is possible to reduce the energy consumption. Hence it is essential to use data compression to reduce the number of bits to be transmitted. Researchers have investigated many energy efficient light weight compression algorithms suitable for WSN data. Still there is a requirement for efficient compression algorithms for WSN which minimizes the mean square error (MSE) of received data and hence in this paper differential encoding based compressed sensing (CS) algorithm is suggested. A CODEC design is suggested for improving the reconstruction quality. Simulation results show improvement in reconstruction quality and reduction in MSE value compared to standard compressed sensing technique.

Title of the Paper: Segmentation of Gray Scale Images of Dropwise Condensation on Textured Surfaces


Authors: Helene Martin, Solmaz Boroomandi Barati, Nicolas Pionnier, Jean-Charles Pinoli, Stephane Valette, Yann Gavet

Pages: 339-348

Abstract: In the present work we developed an image processing algorithm to measure water droplets characteristics during dropwise condensation on pillared surfaces. The main problem in this process is the similarity between shape and size of water droplets and the pillars. The developed method divides droplets into four main groups based on their size and applies the corresponding algorithm to segment each group. These algorithms generate binary images of droplets based on both their geometrical and intensity properties. The information related to droplets evolution during time including mean radius and drops number per unit area are then extracted from the binary images. The developed image processing algorithm is verified using manual detection and applied to two different sets of images corresponding to two kinds of pillared surfaces.

Authors: N. Samarinas, C. Tzimopoulos, C. Evangelides

Pages: 325-332

Abstract: In this paper we examine the fuzzy numerical solution to a second order partial differential equation, called absorption equation, which in general describes the water movement. The uncertainties that appear, from either human or machine errors, in this equation greatly affect the results and for this reason they should be taken into account. The solution in this problem is to use the fuzzy set theory. Here, we present an implicit finite difference scheme in combination with fuzzy logic. Since the problem refers to a partial differential equation, the Generalized Hukuhara (gH) derivative was used in order to find the correct form of the linear system of equations.

Authors: Ren Shengbing, Liu Yuan, Huang Fei, Jia Mengyu

Pages: 312-318

Abstract: How to calculate the intersection set of flows and guards quickly and accurately is at the core of nonlinear hybrid systems reachability analysis. The continuous flow condition of dynamic system of nonlinear hybrid systems are usually expressed by the implicit differential equations. Interval Taylor method with QR decomposition method is adopted in this paper that can explicitly express the boundaries of flows. Then the flows and guards can be expressed as Constraint Satisfaction Problem (CSP for short). At this moment, using the mixed contracting algorithms to solve the CSP that can calculate the intersection set of flows and guards. In the mixed contracting algorithm, when contracting the domain, single contractor is no longer used, but according to the use cycle to select the corresponding contractor. In the contraction domain, the strong but time-cost contractor and the weak but time-save contractor will be used interchangeably, that can improve the computing accuracy and reduce the time-consuming. The experimental results show that this method can quickly and accurately solve the intersection set of flows and guards.

Abstract: Method of the calculation of the formation dynamics of the electric fields of a single and a system of two artificial thunderstorm cells is considered in paper. Method of the electric field calculation of the fully developed charged aerosol flow is based on the theoretical and experimentally measured parameters of a turbulent jets. Method of the calculation of the dynamics of the electric field formation of the turbulent charged submerged aerosol flow is based on the method of “big particles”. Application of these methods for calculation of the electric fields of single artificial thunderstorm cell and for the system of two vertically disposed artificial thunderstorm cells has been considered in paper. It was established that near the second is required for the creation of the fully charged artificial thunderstorm cell. It is shown that the maximal electric field strength will achieve in the space between the artificial thunderstorm cells of the different polarity. It is found that the maximal electric field strength will be above upper and beneath bottom unipolar artificial thunderstorm cells. It was experimentally shown that the model hydrometeor arrays posed in these places could initiate intensive discharge phenomena (from powerful streamers to clear observed return strokes) between the charged clouds and between the artificial thunderstorm cells and the ground. Received results could help to find the methods of the artificial lightning initiation in thunderclouds.

Finally the results suggested that the genetic-optimization interval solution algorithm could precisely calculate the solution of system of non-linear equations in shorter time, which achieved the research purpose of numerical optimization solution of system of non-linear equations.

Title of the Paper: Reichenbach and f-Generated Implications in Fuzzy Database Relations


Authors: Nedžad Dukić, Dženan Gušić, Nermana Kajmović

Pages: 285-297

Abstract: Applying a definition of attribute conformance based on a similarity relation, we introduce an interpretation as a function associated to some fuzzy relation instance and defined on the universal set of attributes. As a consequence, the attributes become fuzzy formulas. Conjunctions, disjunctions and implications between the attributes become fuzzy formulas as well in view of the requirement that the interpretation has to agree with the minimum t-norm, the maximum t-conorm and appropriately chosen fuzzy implication. The purpose of this paper is to derive a number of results related to these fuzzy formulas if the fuzzy implication is selected so to be either Reichenbach or some f-generated fuzzy implication.

Title of the Paper: Design of 24GHz Frequency Source Based on Phase Noise Analysis


Authors: Bo Yin, Shuai Zhang, Shiwei Zhao, Wei Luo, Wen Huang

Pages: 279-284

Abstract: A 24 GHz Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) frequency source based on the analysis of the phase noise of the system is presented. Instead of using Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) and the combination of DDS and PLL, the design method of a single PLL circuit is adopted in this paper. Based on the phase noise model of the PLL system, it is concluded that the selection of loop bandwidth determines the phase noise performance of the frequency source by analyzing the characteristics of the phase noise transfer function of each noise source. ADIsimPLL4.10 software is used to adjust the bandwidth of the Loop Filter, so that the designed Loop Filter meets the design requirements of the 24GHz microwave frequency source. The test results show that output frequency of the frequency source is at 24.17GHz, and its phase noise is -102.48dBc/Hz@10kHz. Compared with the frequency source designed by other methods, this design has the advantage of low phase noise.

Authors: Saleh Saraireh, Jaafer Al-Saraireh, Mohammad Saraireh

Pages: 274-278

Abstract: The exchange of data over wired and wireless communication networks is influenced by various security attacks and threats. This issue requires the implementation of secure system to provide confidentiality and data integrity to ensure secure data exchange. In this paper integration between different security algorithms is proposed to satisfy confidentiality and data integrity of the transmitted data. Data encryption, hashing algorithm and steganography technique are used to protect data transmission over communication channels. The proposed approach combines these techniques together to obtain a secure and strong communication system. The proposed technique provides confidentiality, data integrity; scalability, low complexity and high speed by using a symmetric cryptographic technique namely, filter bank block cipher. DWT based steganography, and MD5 hashing algorithm. The propose algorithm performance is evaluated and analyzed using different images. Simulation results show that confidentiality and integrity are achieved as reflected from the obtained high peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) and high perceptual quality of the histogram analysis.

Title of the Paper: Adaptive Subspace Predictive Control and its Application in 2-CSTR System


Authors: Baoshan Cao, Xiaosuo Luo

Pages: 268-273

Abstract: A new adaptive subspace predictive control method is proposed for the problem that the control performance is ineffective when conventional control methods are applied in the processes of complex chemical production, and the chemical processes have the nonlinear and time-varying characteristics. We get the subspace predictors through input and output data by the subspace identification method. The subspace predictors are used as the prediction model to design the predictive controller directly. The predictive controller is to get the control sequence which can be obtained by minimizing the cost function and the control input is calculated from the control sequence. Based on the advantages of the integrated rolling window and the recursive identification method, the adaptive strategy of updating the subspace predictors is given. Furthermore, the decision coefficient is introduced to filter the bad data and the problem of data inaccuracy is well solved in the proposed method. The effectiveness of the proposed control method is verified by the simulation test of 2-CSTR process control system.

Title of the Paper: DFIG Stator Reactive and Active Power Control Based Fuzzy Logic


Authors: W. Ayrir, M. Ourahou, A. Haddi

Pages: 262-267

Abstract: The stator reactive and active power control of a variable speed doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind generation system is proposed in this paper. The proposed control aims to generate a suitable referential rotor voltage to control the rotor side converter. The generator mechanical speed is controlled using the MPPT based TSR technique, then the fuzzy logic control is used to control the rotor direct and quadratic currents so that they match their references gotten from the reactive and active power references respectively. The referential active power is gotten from the MPPT control, while the referential reactive power is set to 0 Vars in order to obtain a unit power factor at the stator terminals. The proposed control technique was simulated in MATLAB/SIMULINK. The results show the effectiveness of the fuzzy control strategy.

Title of the Paper: Beamforming Based on Suppression Transforming Error for Array Interpolation


Authors: Shexiang Ma, Fei Pan, Xin Meng

Pages: 256-261

Abstract: Aiming at the inherently problems that interpolated transformation technique can not work effectively over a large transformation area, and when the burst interference occurs to the out of transformation area, it can not be suppressed. In this paper, we propose an improved algorithm by designing the weights of interpolated array to reduce the influence of transformation errors. The key feature of this algorithm is that minimizes the error of output signal power which is caused by transforming errors and guarantees the weight is orthogonal to the transforming errors of the desired signal direction. Numerical simulations confirm the validity of the proposed algorithm. In comparing with the existing algorithms, the proposed interpolated array beamforming algorithm can suppress interference signal accurately, prevent the main lobe from shifting effectively and make the null deeper in the large transformation area. Besides, it also increases the output signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR), and has lower complexity.

Title of the Paper: Comparative Analysis of Conventional and Multi-Rotor Wind Turbines


Authors: N. S. Sandhu, S. Chanana

Pages: 246-255

Abstract: Due to continuous increase of power demand and on the other hand shortage of fossil fuels have diverted the focus of scientists towards alternate energy resources. Out of these, wind energy is emerging as a potential renewable energy resource and at present acquired the substantial share. Conventional wind turbines are used to extract the energy associated with moving wind. However the rotor size of such turbines increases with their rating. Increased rotor size results in to many problems such as its weight, complicated design, increased noise pollution & cost etc. Large rotor size and turbine cost have diverted the attention of scientists from single-rotor to multi-rotor wind turbines. Aim of this paper is to find out the most suitable power curve model for the analysis of multi-rotor wind turbines. New models have been developed for the energy estimation of a three rotor wind turbine. Simulation results as presented in the paper are helpful to decide the best suitable power curve model for single-rotor as well as for multi-rotor wind turbine. Further as observed, three-rotor wind turbine yields more energy in contrast to single rotor configuration. This increase is 6.34% with mean wind speed of 8m/s & 4.76% with mean wind speed of 12m/s. Analysis, as reported, shows that an equivalent three rotor configuration results into higher annual energy yield with low installation cost.

Title of the Paper: Landing Position Prediction Model for Hydraulic Monitors Based on the Genetic BP Neural Network


Authors: Ning Li, Wenrui Hao, Jiangming Kan

Pages: 240-245

Abstract: Automatic-orientating fire extinguishing is significant to the development of fire-fighting equipment, and the key issue is to accurately predict the landing position of the water jet. The landing positions of water jet are affected by multiple factors. A hydraulic jet experimental system was established to measure the landing positions under different conditions by changing the height of the hydraulic monitor, pitch angle, horizontal angle and hydraulic pressure. Meanwhile, data about the effect factors are collected, including the real-time flow, wind speed, wind direction and temperature. The BP neural network is widely used in prediction, which is good at addressing the non-linear data relationship. However, it has drawbacks such as the low convergence speed and the flaw of entering a local optimum. The genetic algorithm has a strong global searching ability, which is commonly used to optimize the weights and thresholds of BP neural networks. Therefore, the prediction model is proposed based on BP neural network, which was optimized by genetic algorithm. The simulation results demonstrate that the prediction model of GA-BP neural networks improve the prediction accuracy. The correlation coefficient between the output of GA-BP network and the target value was 0.97. Consequently, the prediction model well reflects the nonlinear relationship between the input factors and the landing position and is an effective method to predict the landing position of the water jets of hydraulic monitors.

Authors: Nikolay A. Baranov, Ekaterina V. Lemishchenko

Pages: 235-239

Abstract: The work is devoted to the presentation of the approach to the construction of a short-term forecast of the dynamics of the atmospheric surface temperature profile. The forecast is based on the correction of the results of a numerical global forecast issued from temperature profile measurement data with the use of remote temperature sensing means. The data from the microwave temperature profiler MTP-5 applied for Pulkovo Airport (ICAO ULLI code) was used as the source of the measurement data. The relevance of this study is determined by the high requirements to the accuracy of the short-term forecast of weather hazards, for example, for the terminal area control. This approach provides the possibility of correcting the short-term forecast of weather hazards carried out by the data from real-time observations and does not require significant computational resources.

Title of the Paper: Mathematical Methods to Locate Touch Points Using Laser Optic Modules


Authors: Sang-Young Cho

Pages: 229-234

Abstract: An interactive whiteboards are used in a variety of settings, including in classrooms, in corporate board rooms, in training rooms, in broadcasting studios, and others. Interactive whiteboard implementation is heavily dependent on touchscreen technologies. Existing technologies are suffering from high manufacturing cost, low resolution, screen size scalability when the display screen size is over 100 inches. In this paper, we introduce a new interactive whiteboard system that uses laser modules. The operational principal of the system is similar to that of the camera-based optic system. However, our system positions touches more accurately by using laser emitter and detector, and its operation is simpler due to the absence of image processing. We derived several expressions based on trigonometry calculation to operate the whiteboard including locating laser sensors, screen positioning, calibration, distortion detection, and point locating. With the simplest form of expressions, the operating hardware has little burden to consume software time.

Authors: Nugzar Kereselidze

Pages: 220-228

Abstract: In this paper, the first attempt is made to combine existing approaches of mathematical and computer modeling of information warfare. As a result, integration mathematical and computer models of information warfare were created. Until now, in the mathematical modeling of the information warfare, issues of information flows and information dissemination were considered separately. The first direction was initiated by the idea of Professor T. Chilachava, to study the distribution of information flows of the two opposite and third peacekeeping sides by mathematical models. The second direction was laid by Academician A.A. Samarskiy and Professor A.P. Mikhailov, who proposed a mathematical model for the dissemination of information among the population. Both these directions have been intensively developed and many scientific studies have been devoted to them. Several dozens of interesting models were created, which reflect the various nuances of the problem. But it is natural that the information and the information for which it is intended should be studied together. During the implementation of this idea, integrated mathematical and computer models of information warfare were created. Integrated common linear and nonlinear mathematical and computer models of information warfare were created. In this paper, integrated general and particular mathematical and computer models for ignoring the enemy are presented. With the help of computer research, a numerical experiment, the question of the existence of a solution to the problem of the Chilker range is studied, which is equivalent to the task of completing information warfare.

Title of the Paper: A Two-Stage Fraud Detection Method


Authors: Yuanyuan Zhou, Wei Liu, Zhigang Hu, Feng He

Pages: 215-219

Abstract: With the economic development, more and more people participate in medical insurance and enjoy the benefits of medical insurance. However, medical insurance fraud has brought tremendous losses to the medical insurance fund. This paper presents a two-stage outlier detection method for medical insurance fraud detection. In the first stage, weighted k-means algorithm is used to cluster the data set and prune the result set, where the weight w is calculated by using the particle swarm optimization algorithm to minimize the evaluation function of the weight index. The second stage adopts the improved outlier detection method to process the result set. Experiments show that the accuracy of this method is higher than that of using K-means algorithm or LOF algorithm alone. Moreover, it can avoid the influence of subjective factors on the detection results.

Authors: Valeriy A. Perminov, Elina Soprunenko

Pages: 210-214

Abstract: Accidents occurring at the sites of pipelines are accompanied by environmental damage, economic loss, and sometimes loss of life. In some cases, the pipelines transporting fuel are ruptured as a result of accidents. The resulting gas cloud expands over nearby forests or homes and ignited, creating a large fireball. As a result of this processes heat radiation is emitted, it heats and ignites the forest combustible materials in the forest. The paper gives a new mathematical setting and method of numerical solution of a problem of a forest fire initiation as a result of accident. The boundary-value problem is solved numerically using the finite volume method and method of splitting according to physical processes. The dependence of the sizes of forest fire zones for different amounts of leaked flammable substances and moisture content, bulk and type of vegetation were studied. In this paper, we calculated the sizes of the possible ignition zones in emergency situations on pipelines located close to the forest, accompanied by the appearance of fireballs. The paper suggested in the context of the general mathematical model of forest fires is given a new mathematical setting, method and results of numerical solution.

Pages: 204-209

Abstract: This paper investigates the cyclostationarity of China multimedia mobile broadcasting (CMMB) signals. A scattered pilot detection algorithm with lower complexity of CMMB signals based on data smoothing for cognitive radio networks is proposed. First, the received data in secondary user is smoothed by the first order lag filter. Then the cyclic autocorrelation functions (CAFs) of the odd and even orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) symbols in CMMB signals, as the decision statistics are calculated. According to the signature of CMMB signals, appearing some peaks of scattered pilots for the cycle frequency around the delay lags , as dominant peaks of CAF is used to detect the CMMB primary user. We derive and simplify expressions of these two decision statistics, and we use the OR rule to decide whether the CMMB primary user is present or not. Simulation results show that by using longer sensing time, the detection performance of the proposed algorithm is significantly improved.

Authors: Osama H. Elgazzar, Imbaby I. Mahmoud, Sherief Hashima, H. A. Konber

Pages: 190-199

Abstract: This paper addresses the Co-Channel Interference (CCI) mitigation in Relay-Assisted (R-A) cellular systems to improve Cell Edge User’s (CEU's) performance. Analytical treatments are conducted. The network performance improvement through reducing CCI effects are evaluated using two proposed interference mitigation models. These models denote the R-A sectored Fractional Frequency Reuse (FFR) and R-A Soft Frequency Reuse (SFR). Each model contains two different scenarios for further network performance improvement. The first scenario considers three Relay Stations (RSs) per cell while the other one proposes six RSs in each cell. The best RS placement is proposed. Moreover, closed form expressions for worst cases CEU's SIR, Cell Centre User's (CCU's) SIR and inner radius are implemented. These expressions are used to compare between the considered models using different performance evaluation metrics. The work outcomes enable the system designer to characterize and optimize the multi-cell network performance without a need to execute complex calculations. Also the obtained results contributes to achieve much higher network performance improvement with a lower cost.

Title of the Paper: Coupling Dynamics Analysis of the Flying Cable Driven Parallel Robot


Authors: Qin Wang, Hua Chen, Yu Su, Lu Qiao

Pages: 181-189

Abstract: Flying cable driven parallel robots consist of two subsystems, i.e. four-rotor unmanned aerial vehicle (QUV) and cable driven parallel robot (CDPR), which cooperate each other to complete various operations. Due to the cable flexibility, wind disturbance and base motion of QUV, the dynamics coupling exists between the two subsystems, leading to the imprecise dynamics modeling and cable tension determination. To describe the dynamics coupling, base motions of QUV can be viewed as the external disturbance and the motion of the cable can be decomposed of two categories: steady winding motion and vibration with small amplitude. Based on the space discretization of the cable, cable tension increment caused by vibration with small amplitude can be applied to describe the dynamics coupling. Thus, the cable tension can be determined precisely. Simulation results show that the cable vibration with small amplitude and base motion of QUV can affect the cable tension determination apparently, which should be take into account fully, thus providing the theoretical foundation for controlling the CDPR more accurately.

Authors: Yue Han, Jiangming Kan

Pages: 173-180

Abstract: Image blind deblurring is an ill-posed inverse problem, in which the blurring kernel is unknown. In this paper, we propose a new image blind deblurring method. We introduce Laplacian operator to extract the gradients of the image instead of first- and second-order gradients, which simply the solving process. In the estimation framework, blurring kernel and image are alternately obtained. Compared with the state-of-the-art image deblurring methods, the image deblurred by the proposed method is more clearly and have higher fidelity, and the ringing artifacts are reduced effectively. From the image deblurring results, the kernel similarity of estimated blurring kernel is higher, the indices of image deblurring result are dominant as well.

Authors: Ruhiat Sultana, Nisar Ahmed, Syed Abdul Sattar

Pages: 163-172

Abstract: This paper develops Hadoop based image compression approach, to solve the problem of low image quality, low compression ratio and high time that occurs during lossless image compression. Lossless image is considered in this paper because in case of lossy compression it leads to information loss which cannot retrieve anymore. By the employment of Hadoop based technique this paper proposes a novel image compression for lossless images. This method makes use of Weiner filter for the cancellation of noise and image blurring. Followed by this, hybrid concepts are employed to perform segmentation and feature extraction. Finally, compression is done with the help of Hadoop map reduce concept. Our proposed technique is implemented in MATLAB and therefore the experimental results proved the effectiveness of proposed image compression technique in terms of high compression ratio and low noise ratio when compared with existing techniques.

Title of the Paper: A Numerical Algorithm and Visualization Software for Flood Simulation in Urban Area: A Case Study of West Jakarta, Indonesia


Authors: Saeful Bahtiar, Somporn Chuai-Aree, Anurak Busaman

Pages: 147-153

Abstract: Flood is an overflow of a large amount of water beyond its normal limits, especially in the area of normally dry land which can cause many losses. To minimize those effects and to predict flood occurrence, simulation and mathematical models are required. The purpose of this paper is to develop a numerical algorithm for flood simulation and visualization in West Jakarta, Indonesia. The numerical algorithm was constructed based on shallow water equations (SWEs) that were solved by using finite volume method (FVM) and first order well-balanced scheme equipped with the dynamic domain defining method. The numerical algorithm was validated in the scenario of Kleefsman’s dam breaking test case. The result of validation shows that experiments have good agreement with the simulation data. The numerical algorithm and investigated software were applied to terrain data of West Jakarta, Indonesia. The simulated results were compared for two cases by involving with buildings and without buildings. The comparison shows that the algorithm with buildings can reduce the number of computational grid cells since the buildings grid cells were ignored. This algorithm and the software can be applied for other regions.

Title of the Paper: A Quadratic Optimization Model for Dynamic Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy with Tongue and Groove Constraints


Authors: Yihua Lan, Jinjiang Liu, Yang Wang, Xiao Song, Chih-Cheng Hung

Pages: 135-142

Abstract: The paper provides an improved model for quadratic programming for dynamic intensity modulated radiotherapy (dIMRT) and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) schemes. This improved model suppresses the total beam-on-time as well as tongue and groove chamfer effects. First, we model the goal of clinical dose with the traditional quadratic programming technique. Then, we describe leaf-moving trajectory matrices and obtain the relationship between trajectory matrices and the fluence map matrix. We establish convex constraints for the leaf collision and tongue and groove chamfer effects based on the relationship. Furthermore, by analyzing the relationship between the leaf movement speed and leaf moving trajectory matrix as well as the relationship between the beam-on time and leaf moving trajectory matrix, we establish the convex constraint of the leaf moving maximum speed and the convex constraint of the total number of monitor units (the beam-on time). Finally, considering the limitation for the unidirectional leaf-moving pattern, we form the bidirectional leaf-moving pattern and embed it into the model. This paper proposes a theoretical model which can meet the majority of the clinical demand. It is also easy for the implementation of hardware and software aspects of constraints by multi-leaf collimator.

Pages: 123-128

Abstract: To obtain the shock wave field distribution, two kinds of caliber weapons shock wave overpressure by the electric measuring method are analyzed, and the attenuation formula in far field is corrected, and the approximation method of overpressure peak field with cubic spline interpolation is put forward. The sparse array data of small caliber muzzle shock wave field measured by sensor array is first analyzed and the curve fitting was carried out by using the correction formula in the radial direction; secondly, cubic spline interpolation was used in the circumferential direction; and lastly, Delaunay triangulation method was used to divide the mesh to approximate the overpressure peak surface. Compared with the cubic spline interpolation results obtained by this method, the approximate isobars showed obvious advantages. Further, the large-diameter muzzle shock wave using polar coordinate sensors were tested, and the approximate method of sparse matrix overpressure data processing field effect is good. The approximate method provides reference for the drawing of the shock wave field by polar coordinate.

Pages: 118-122

Abstract: Contextual information of users in mobile environment is diverse. Contextual factors have different importance to users in choosing resources. This paper presents a context-based mobile user behavior analysis model. Firstly, by using the context information entropy to calculate the importance of different context attributes, context similarity can be calculated. Then, combining with the traditional collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm, the target user's nearest neighbor set is obtained based on user similarity. Finally, the behavior preference of the target user can be predicted, and a target user's recommended list of projects also generate under the current context environment. Experimental study is carried out and the results show that the proposed prediction method have a better performance in a specific context.

Authors: Jianbin Wang, Jianping Chen, Sijie Ouyang

Pages: 112-117

Abstract: Due to the parametric uncertainties and the disturbances in dynamic model, the traditional control methods are not suit for the motion control of four-wheel omnidirectional mobile robot. An adaptive sliding mode controller is presented, the RBF neural network is applied to estimate the function of the parameter uncertainty and the disturbance. To suit the real-time control demand, single parameter estimation is used instead of the weights of RBF neural network, and then a Lyapunov function is exploited to prove the stability of the improved closed-loop system. The numerical simulations results show that the controlled system has better robust stability and ability of restraining disturbance.

Title of the Paper: 1-Point RANSAC Application: an Independent Positioning Method for Crawler Mobile Robots Based on Binocular Stereo Vision


Authors: Xixuan Zhao, Jiangming Kan, Chuandong Zhan

Pages: 105-111

Abstract: Independent positioning is a basic problem for realizing the autonomous navigation of a mobile robot in an unknown environment. In this paper, an independent positioning method based on binocular stereo vision is examined. This method includes two steps: extracting and matching point features based on binocular stereo vision and estimating the motion model of the crawler mobile robot. In the first step, point features are detected using a FAST algorithm and matched according to the Hamming distance. In the second step, the motion model of the crawler mobile robot is estimated by points that are matched using the visual odometry method which is based on 1-Point RANSAC (random sample consensus) framework and Kalman filter. The results of indoor and outdoor practical experiments illustrated that the proposed method can achieve the goal of real-time independent positioning and obtain accurate and robust results.

Title of the Paper: A Convex Cauchy-Schwarz Divergence Measure for Blind Source Separation


Authors: Zaid Albataineh, Fathi M. Salem

Pages: 94-104

Abstract: We propose a new class of divergence measures for Independent Component Analysis (ICA) for the de-mixing of multiple source mixtures. We call it the Convex Cauchy-Schwarz Divergence (CCS-DIV), and it is formed by integrating convex functions into the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality. The new measure is symmetric and the degree of its curvature with respect to the joint-distribution can be tuned by a (convexity) parameter. The CCS-DIV is able to speed-up the search process in the parameter space and produces improved de-mixing performance. An algorithm, generated from the proposed divergence, is developed which is employing the non-paramteric Parzen window-based distribution. Simulation evidence is presented to verify and quantify its superior performance in comparison to state-of-the-art approaches.

Title of the Paper: Differential Ant-Stigmergy Algorithm Based Parameters Estimation of Sum of Exponentials Model


Authors: Jianfeng Liu, Jiawen Bian, Hongwei Li

Pages: 85-93

Abstract: Exponentials sum model is an important model in time series analysis and has applications in modeling various physical phenomena of real life. The estimation of the parameters of the model is a necessary and fundamental task for the application of the model. In this paper, we propose a differential ant-stigmergy algorithm (DASA) based iterative procedure to estimate the parameters of the considered model where two different criterions which are least squares and least absolute errors are considered. The estimators of the parameters for the considered model by the two criterions are compared with the existing estimators by genetic algorithm based least squares (GA-LS). Simulation experiments and real data fitting are presented to inspect the performance of the proposed algorithm. It can be observed that better results can be obtained by DASA based LS (DASA-LS) than by GA-LS in terms of mean squares errors (MSEs) and robustness. Although a higher dimensional optimization is needed for DASA based least absolute errors (DASA-LAE) than that for the other two methods, DASA-LAE providers better results than DASA-LS in outliers condition. Finally, simulation results also show that DASA has better global searching ability than that for GA.

Title of the Paper: A Compact and High Isolation Dual Polarization Antenna for Micro-base Station


Authors: Bo Yin, Xingxing Feng, Shenwei Mao, Lijun Sun

Pages: 74-79

Abstract: A compact, low-profile and high isolation dual-polarized patch antenna with good radiation pattern is proposed for micro-base station (operating in 2.5-2.7GHz). This antenna consists of two horizontal substrates and two vertical substrates, both placed orthographically. Low-profile is achieved by employing electromagnetic feed and Γ shape feed line. Hybrid feed structure is used to obtain the high port isolation. The differential feed network in port 2 enhances the port isolation and suppresses the cross polarization level. A metal wall is loaded to improve the radiation pattern. For demonstration, the proposed antenna is fabricated and measured. The operation frequency of port 1 and port 2 which can be observed in the measured results are both around 2.6GHz. The desired isolation and radiation characteristics are achieved.

Title of the Paper: Comparing Threshold Based Denoising Methods in Wavelet Transform Domain


Authors: A. Mohammad Zaki, S. Ghofrani

Pages: 65-73

Abstract: In this paper, the principal concept of image denoising in wavelet domain is discussed. For this purpose, three thresholding approaches known as VisuShrink, SureShrink and NeighBlock are employed, three noise power estimators named Median absolute deviation, Quantile median and Marginal variance are used and four thresholding rules called hard, soft, Exp. and Garrot are applied. All methods take effort for denoising in transform domain. As a matter of fact, sparsity of coefficients, in addition to the noise power estimator efficiency, are the key roles for every thresholding method. So, we focus on the capability for noise power estimation to discover the most optimal method for image denoising in wavelet domain. Being consistent in estimating the noise power in every wavelet decomposition level, it was believed that Median absolute deviation was the best method. To challenge this idea, outcome of mentioned method and other noise power estimators is to be compared. Finally, some packages will be proposed that each of them introduce methods and algorithms that act together optimally. The performance evaluation is via two points of view, Speckle noise reduction and image quality preservation. The most optimal package which outperforms others is using Garrot thresholding rule and Median absolute deviation in VisuSrink denoising method.

Authors: Angelamaria Cardone, Dajana Conte, Raffaele D’Ambrosio, Beatrice Paternoster

Pages: 58-64

Abstract: Gaussian-type quadrature rules for oscillatory integrand functions are presented. The weights and nodes depend on the frequency of the problem and they are constructed by following the exponential fitting theory. The error analysis proves that the exponentially fitted Gaussian rules are more accurate than the classical Gaussian rules when oscillatory functions are treated. The numerical approximation to Volterra integral equations with oscillatory solution through these formulas is presented. Some numerical tests are reported.

Pages: 48-57

Abstract: This paper is focused on suggestions and recommendations for suitable guidelines for fulfilling of The sketch of topographical-geodetic connection and aiming guns through line rod in the prepared firing positions. This method belongs to the fast and accurate Aiming works into the main firing direction, and consequently the target. This paper contains table of contents and method of “The sketch of topographical-geodetic connection” fulfilling. Moreover, this article aims to clarify the issue Aiming guns through line rod and show new possibilities for their placement. Stakes are still standard placed before or after the cannon in the main direction of fire. In case it is not possible in this way to place stakes can be positioned also in another direction as described in the article. With the change in tactics deployment works in firing positions, the guns are no longer on the linear line and therefore can deploy stakes in direction and eventually left to right cannon. The paper gives the instructions for the respective commanders also use those spaces that are not typically used to Aiming guns into the line of fire through line rod. Paper explains the general principle of targeting guns by line rod, particularly for 152 mm ShKH vz.77. The paper presents problems of current Artillery communication and information system and suggests requirements of the future system.

Title of the Paper: Effect of the FWM Influence on the CWDM Signal Transmission in the Optical Transmission Media


Authors: Rastislav Róka, Martin Mokráň

Pages: 42-47

Abstract: This paper deals with analysis of negative influences on the optical signal transmitted in the environment of optical transmission media and is focused especially on the Four Wave Mixing (FWM) effect. The FWM is one of nonlinear effects in the optical transmission media with the strongest impact on transmitted signals utilizing a wavelength division multiplexing. Consequently, a simulation model for the appropriate CWDM optical transmission path is introduced with short descriptions of functional blocks representing technologies utilized in this specific environment. The created Simulink modeling scheme of real environmental conditions at the signal transmission using the Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) allows executing different requested analyses for advanced optical signal processing techniques. Finally, some results from the CWDM simulation are introduced for the signal transmission influenced by different negative effects in the optical transmission medium. Using the presented simulation model, it is possible analyzing transmitted optical signals with eye diagrams and determined the impact of negative influences on the optical frequency spectrum.

Title of the Paper: A Performance Evaluation of Color Constancy Methods Based on Illumination Estimation


Authors: Chunxiao Li, Jiangming Kan

Pages: 35-41

Abstract: There are many color constancy methods based on illumination estimation and their error metrics, but it is unclear how they perform or which method is more appropriate in a particular scene. We chose Reproduction Angular Error (RAE) as the error measure to compare the performance of twenty-two illumination estimation methods in four different scenes (Open Country, City, Indoor, Lab), and present the best method choice to be used with each scene type.

Title of the Paper: Coupled Method for Solving Time-Fractional Navier-Stokes Equation


Authors: S. O. Edeki, G. O. Akinlabi

Pages: 27-34

Abstract: This paper witnesses the coupling of two basic transforms: the He-Laplace transform (HLT) which is a blend of Laplace transformation and Homotopy perturbation methods and the fractional complex transform (FCT). This coupling technique is applied for the solutions of the time-fractional Navier-Stokes model equation. Two examples are considered in demonstrating the effectiveness of the coupled technique. The exact solutions of the solved problems are obtained with less computational work, while still maintaining high level of accuracy with little knowledge of fractional calculus being required. Thus, the proposed method is recommended for handling linear and nonlinear fractional models arising in pure and applied sciences.

Authors: Weilin Li, Jian Wen, Zeyu Hu, Wenkai Ma

Pages: 21-26

Abstract: In order to solve the problem that six degree of freedom movement and automatic attitude holding of the simplified aid for extravehicular activity rescue (SAFER) on the ground simulation of astronaut's operation cannot be achieved accurately due to the influence of gravity, friction and other conditions. The dynamic simulation model of the device is established by using virtual reality technology. And in the MATLAB/Simulink environment to establish a hybrid control system model, its core concept is based on the Bang-bang control. Under different conditions, the SAFER attitude control process is simulated, and then the scene simulation animation and control process curves are obtained. The simulation results verify the accuracy of the mathematical model and control strategy. Application of virtual prototyping technology model simulation method can describe the device control process accurately and make the design process more efficient. And provide certain theoretical basis and guiding significance to the practical application of SAFER.

Title of the Paper: Effect of Multirate and Suppression Filter in the Performance of Wavelet Packet Multicarrier Multicode CDMA System


Authors: Maryam M. Akho-Zahieh

Pages: 12-20

Abstract: Many ways can be considered to improve the performance of Multicarrier Multicode Code-Division Multiple Access (MC\MCD-CDMA) systems. Some of them are to use: Multirates services, suppression filters, wavelet packets, diversity and others. Multirates (MR) services can be provided in MC\MCDCDMA system by varying the number of multicodes for each user according to his data rate but the processing gain of all users must be fixed. Suppression filter (SF) can improve the performance for the system by rejecting the narrow-band jammer interference. Since wavelet packets (WPs) have lower sidelobes compared with sinusoidal carriers, then systems which use WPs as subcarriers are very effective in reducing the problem of intercarrier interference Also, to reduce multiple access interference diversity techniques can be used. In this paper, the effects of MR , WPs and SF on the performance of MC\MCD-CDMA system that uses WPs as subcarrier were investigated. The system is denoted as WP-MC\MCD-CDMA system, and the study includes the effects of number of the rates, SF and its number of taps, WP family type and filter length.

Abstract: Method of the computation of the electric fields of a system of the artificial thunderstorm cells is considered in paper. It is based on the theoretical and experimentally measured parameters of a turbulent charged aerosol flows. Approaches for calculation of the electric field characteristics of the separate charged aerosol flow have been analyzed for the case of an aerosol chamber. Application of this method for computation of the electric fields of two unipolar or differently charged artificial thunderstorm cells has been considered in paper. It is shown that the maximal electric field strength will achieve in the gap between the positively and negatively charged artificial thunderstorm cells, and above upper and beneath bottom unipolar artificial thunderstorm cells. It was experimentally shown that the model hydrometeor arrays posed in these places could initiate intensive discharge phenomena (powerful streamer and leader discharges) between the charged clouds and between the artificial thunderstorm cells and the ground.

Title of the Paper: The Solution of Boundary Value Problems with Mixed Boundary Conditions via Boundary Value Methods


Authors: Grace O. Akinlabi, Raphael B. Adeniyi, Enahoro A. Owoloko

Pages: 1-6

Abstract: Boundary Value Methods (BVMs) are methods based on Linear Multistep Methods (LMMs), which are used for the numerical approximation of Differential Equations (DEs). These methods were introduced to overcome the weaknesses of the LMMs. In this paper, we introduce a new class of BVMs – Hybrid Boundary Value Methods (HBVMs) and used them to solve first order systems BVPs with mixed boundary conditions by using the specific cases: 2, 4 and 6. These methods are also based on LMMs where data are used at both step and off-step points. The maximum errors and rate of convergence (ROC) of the solutions are reported for these cases to illustrate the effectiveness of these new class of methods.
