  • Newly Developed Nonlinear Vehicle Model for an Active Anti-roll Bar System

    • Authors: Noraishikin Binti Zulkarnain
      Abstract: This paper presents the development of a simplified linear vehicle model consists of  half car modelling with single track bicycle model, verification and validation of the model. As for the verification of simplified vehicle model, a newly developed  nonlinear vehicle model is used in the validation process of the vehicle model. The parameters chosen in a newly developed vehicle model is developed based on Carsim vehicle model by using  non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm version II (NSGA-II) optimization method. The ride comfort and handling performances have been one of the main objective in order to fulfil the expectation of customers in the vehicle development. Full nonlinear vehicle model which consists of ride, handling and Magic tyre subsystems  has been derived and developed in MATLAB/Simulink. Then, optimum values of the full nonlinear vehicle parameters are investigated by using NSGA-II. The two objective functions are established based on RMS error between simulation and benchmark system. A stiffer suspension provides good stability and handling during manoeuvres while softer suspension give better ride quality. The final results indicated that the newly developed nonlinear vehicle model is behaving accurately with input ride and manoeuvre. The outputs trend are successfully replicated.

  • Robust Watermarking through Dual Band IWT and Chinese Remainder Theorem

    • Authors: Prajanto Wahyu Adi, Farah Zakiyah Rahmanti, Edy Winarno
      Abstract: CRT was a widely used algorithm in the development of watermarking methods. The algorithm produced good image quality but it had low robustness against compression and filtering. This paper proposed a new watermarking scheme through dual band IWT to improve the robustness and preserving the image quality. The high frequency sub band was used to index the embedding location on the low frequency sub band. In robustness test, the CRT method resulted average NC value of 0.7129, 0.4846, and 0.6768 while the proposed method had higher NC value of 0.7902, 0.7473, and 0.8163 in corresponding Gaussian filter, JPEG, and JPEG2000 compression test. Meanwhile the both CRT and proposed method had similar average SSIM value of 0.9979 and 0.9960 respectively in term of image quality. The result showed that the proposed method was able to improve the robustness and maintaining the image quality.

  • Objective and Subjective Evaluations of Adaptive Noise Cancellation
           Systems with Selectable Algorithms for Speech Intelligibility

    • Authors: Roshahliza M Ramil, Salina Abdul Samad, Ali O. Abid Noor
      Abstract: Adaptive Noise Cancellation (ANC) systems with selectable algorithms refer to ANC systems that are able to change the adaptation algorithm based on the eigenvalue spread of the noise. These systems can have dual inputs based on the conventional ANC structure or a single input based on the Adaptive Line Enhancer (ALE) structure. This paper presents a comparison of the performance of these two systems using objective and subjective measurements for speech intelligibility. The parameters used to objectively compare the systems are the Mean Square Error (MSE) and the output Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). For subjective evaluation, listening tests were evaluated using the Mean Opinion Score (MOS) technique. The outcomes demonstrate that for both objective and subjection evaluations, the single input ALE with selectable algorithms (S-ALE) system outperforms that of the dual input ANC with selectable algorithm (S-ANC) in terms of better steady-state MSE by 10%, higher SNR values for most types of noise, higher scores in most of the questions in the MOS questionnaire and a higher acceptance rate for speech quality.

  • Python Application: Hopfield Discrete Method for Hiragana Images

    • Authors: Dicky Nofriansyah, Hendriktio Freizello
      Abstract: Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language. Python provides strong support for integration with other programming languages and other tools. Python programming is rarely used in the field of artificial intelligence, especially artificial neural networks. This research focuses on running Python programming to recognize hiragana letters. In learning the character of Hiragana, one can experience difficulties because of the many combinations of vowels that form new letters by different means of reading and meaning. Discrete Hopfield network is a fully connected, that every unit is attached to every other unit. This network has asymmetrical weights. At Hopfield Network, each unit has no relationship with itself. Therefore it is expected that a computer system that can help recognize the Hiragana Images. With this pattern recognition Application of Hiragana Images, it is expected the system can be developed further to recognize the Hiragana Images quickly and precisely.

    • Authors: Trio Adiono, Sinantya Feranti Anindya, Syifaul Fuada, Maulana Yusuf Fathany
      Abstract: In this paper, a curtain controller for smart home is presented. This work aims to develop an end device in the smart home system that will support power conservation function indirectly, especially a curtain open/close controller. To achieve this, the 28BYJ-48 stepper motor is used as an actuator with the assistance of the ULN2003A driver. The motor is controlled using STM32L100RCT6 microcontroller, which is chosen due to its low power consumption. The microcontroller controls the motor’s direction by using a pulse width modulation logic signals emitted from four GPIO pins, which works based on data transmitted from the central host through ZigBee protocol on Mesh network. Meanwhile, from the user’s side, the control is done by using Android-based application, which is connected to the central host through Bluetooth. Based on the testing conducted on a small curtain, the curtain can be controlled wirelessly through the Android application. Furthermore, the device consumes power 210.5 mW for idle condition and 1,586 mW for process condition. The amount of the consumed power makes it suitable for low-power operation and in alignment with the smart home system’s overall aim for power conservation in the wireless sensor network-based smart home system.

  • Defense-through-Deception Network Security Model: Securing University
           Campus Network from DOS/DDOS Attack

    • Authors: M. A. Naagas, E. L. Mique Jr, T. D. Palaoag, J. S. Dela Cruz
      Abstract: Denial of Service (DOS) and (DDOS) Distributed Denial of Service attacks have become a major security threat to university campus network security since most of the students and teachers prepare online services such as enrolment, grading system, library etc. Therefore, the issue of network security has become a priority to university campus network management. Using online services in university network can be easily compromised. However, traditional security mechanisms approach such as Defense-In-Depth (DID) Model is outdated in today’s complex network and DID Model has been used as a primary cybersecurity defense model in the university campus network today. However, university administration should realize that Defense-In-Depth (DID) are playing an increasingly limited role in DOS/DDoS protection and this paper brings this fact to light. This paper presents that the Defense-In-Depth (DID) is not capable of defending complex and volatile DOS/DDOS attacks effectively. The test results were presented in this study in order to support our claim. The researchers established a Defense-In-Depth (DID) Network model at the Central Luzon State University and penetrated the Network System using DOS/DDOS attack to simulate the real network scenario. This paper also presents the new approach Defense-through-Deception network security model that improves the traditional passive protection by applying deception techniques to them that give insights into the limitations posed by the Defense-In-Depth (DID) Model. Furthermore, this model is designed to prevent an attacker who has already entered the network from doing damage.

  • Fuzzy Logic Approach to Identify Deprivation Index in Peninsular Malaysia

    • Authors: Muhammad Azam Haris Che Amat, Syibrah Naim, Syerrina Zakaria
      Abstract: Deprivation indices are similar to inequalities index or index of disadvantageous. It was built to measure the basic necessities in a specific study area or region. There were many indices that have been constructed in the previous study. However, since these indices had depended mostly on two factors; socio-economic conditions and geography of the study area, thus different result would be generated in different areas. The objective of this study is to construct the new index based on above factors in Peninsular Malaysia by using a fuzzy logic approach. This study employed twelve variables from different facilities condition that was obtained from Malaysia 2000’s census report. These variables were considered as input parameters in the fuzzy logic system. Data turned into linguistic variables and shaped into rules in the form of IF-ELSE conditions. After that, the centroid of area method is applied to acquire the final deprivation index for a specific district in Peninsular Malaysia. The result showed that less developed states generated lower index for examples Kelantan and Kedah while more developed states generated a higher index for examples Selangor and W.P. Kuala Lumpur.

  • Hybridization of Bat and Genetic Algorithm to Solve N-Queens Problem

    • Authors: Abbas Fadhile Jasim Al-Gburi, Syibrah Naim, Aziz Nasser Boraik
      Abstract: In this paper, a hybrid of Bat-Inspired Algorithm (BA) and Genetic Algorithm (GA) is proposed to solve N-queens problem. The proposed algorithm executes the behavior of microbats with changing pulse rates of emissions and loudness to final all the possible solutions in the initialization and moving phases. This dataset applied two metaheuristic algorithms (BA and GA) and the hybrid to solve N-queens problem by finding all the possible solutions in the instance with the input sizes of area 8*8, 20*20, 50*50, 100*100 and 500*500 on a chessboard. To find the optimal solution, consistently, ten run have been set with 100 iterations for all the input sizes. The hybrid algorithm obtained substantially better results than BA and GA because both algorithms were inferior in discovering the optimal solutions than the proposed randomization method. It also has been discovered that BA outperformed GA because it requires a reduced amount of steps in determining the solutions.
