  • UWB antenna with circular patch for earley breast cancer detection

    • Authors: Aziz El Fatimi, Seddik Bri, Adil Saadi
      Abstract: Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. It has the highest incidence rate and the highest mortality rate. In recent years, the incidence of breast cancer has become more and more important, it is becoming the first tumor killer for women around the world. Early diagnosis is the most important parameter for detecting cancerous tissue to prevent serious consequences. In this electronic paper, we present a new design of an ultra-wide-band circular microstrip patch antenna operating in the recommended FCC band ([3.1 GHz - 10.6 GHz]) for the detection of breast tumors. The antenna is printed on an FR4 epoxy substrate with a dielectric permittivity r = 4.4 and loss tangent tan = 0.02. The results obtained are largely satisfying and prove that the proposed antenna is a candidate for biomedical applications.

  • A novel compact CPW tunable stop band filter using a new Z-DGS-resonator
           for microwave applications

    • Authors: Elmahjouby Sghir
      Abstract: The paper presents a novel very compact CPW bandstop filter. The designed structure consists of one unit of new Z-DGS resonator, placed on top layer of ground plane between the input and output this structure, which is excited by 50 ohm coplanar line. The designed filter can be used in X-Band applications as the band stop can be shifted to any other desired frequency by tuning the length of the Z-DGS. The proposed  filter topology has as benefits good performances in terms of wide stop-band rejection, low insertion loss, high return loss, simple design and more small size (17.908 × 10 mm2) compared to other previous works those  reported in literature.  The stop-band width is from 3.96GHz to 6.21GHz, exhibits a 22,25 dB rejection bandwidth of  45% with high selectivity characteristic at the center frequency of  5.05 GHz.

  • A new Leach protocol based on ICH-Leach for adaptive image transferring
           using DWT

    • Authors: Mohamed Taj Bennani, Abdelali Zbakh
      Abstract: Nowadays, the rapid development and the miniaturization of CMOS image sensors in the last years allowed the creation of WMSN (Wireless Multimedia Sensor Network). Therefore, transferring images through the network becomes an important field of research. The main goal is to transmit the data from a sensor node to another to reach finally the Sink node. Thus, routing protocols play an important role in managing and optimizing the node's resources particularly the energy consumption. Therefore, some routing protocols are known by their ability to save energy and extend the lifetime of the network such as Leach protocol and derived variants. However, multimedia content transferring was not a priority for these protocols. In this paper, the main idea is to adapt ICH-Leach [1], for image transferring. This protocol was tested in a previous work and has given good performances against Leach [2], balanced Leach [3] and MLD-Leach [4]. In fact, the Haar wavelet transform is used, in the application layer, to extract the resolution level to be used in image transmission, depending on the rate flow between the sensor node and the sink node. This paper provides statistics concerning the lifetime of the network, the energy consumption and statistics related to receive images using the peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR). The Castalia framework is used for simulation, obtained results show the efficiency of the proposed approach by network lifetime extending and more images transmitting with better quality compared to other protocols.

  • EFFECTIVE SEGMENTATION OF SCLERA, IRIS AND PUPIL REGIONS IN EYE IMAGES

    • Authors: mrunal pathak
      Abstract: In today’s sensitive environment, for personal authentication, iris recognition is the most attentive technique among the various biometric technologies. One of the key steps in the iris recognition system is the accurate iris segmentation from its surrounding noises including pupil and sclera of a captured eye-image. In our proposed method, initially input image is taken from the database and preprocessed by using bilateral filtering. After the preprocessing of images contour based features such as, brightness, color and texture features are extracted for the effective segmentation of pupil, iris and sclera from the eye images. Then entropy is measured based on the extracted contour based features. This entropy feature is effectively distinguishing the data in the images. Finally, based on the extracted entropy feature, the convolution neural network (CNN) effectively segments the sclera, iris and pupil parts from the images. Here, the CNN is used for the clustering of the data in images based on the entropy value and results the effective sclera, iris and pupil parts segmentations. The proposed results will be analyzed to demonstrate the performance of the proposed segmentation method with existing methods.

  • Design and Fabrication of Cost-effective Heart-Rate Pulse Monitoring
           Sensor System

    • Authors: Zulkhairi Mohd Yusof, Md Masum Billah, Kushsairy Kadir, Nur Amanina, Nur Hidayah, Haidawati Nasir
      Abstract: A traditional approach of heart rate measurement has always meant that people must go to hospitals to examine the patient disease at Cardiologist and medical officer. Most people have difficult such as no transport and lazy to go to the hospital for the check-ups of their conditions heart rate. This is because, before have a treatment or medical check-up, they should do an appointment. Besides that, demands of works very high nowadays. People busy with their works until forget to do medical check-ups. Additionally, the available portable heart rate monitoring machine is costly to buy for all. In this research, we develop a system which can be accommodate for all while everyone can do their check up at home and do not waste their time by waiting for their turn in the hospital to do the medical check-ups. The prototype is built using low cost electronics components. The prototype can do a self-check-up before seeing a medical practitioner may reduce mortality rate due to the silent killer that is heart attacks.

  • ALGORITHM FOR DETECTING DEFORESTATION AND FOREST DEGRADATION USING
           VEGETATION INDICES

    • Authors: Muhammad Buce Saleh, I Nengah Surati Jaya, Nitya Ade Santi, Dewayany sutrisno, Ita carolita, Zhang Yuxing, wang xuenjun, liu qian
      Abstract: In forestry sector, the remote sensing technology hold a key role on forest inventory and monitoring their changes. This paper describes the algorithm for detecting deforestation and forest degradation using high resolution satellite imageries with knowledge-based approach. The main objective of the study is to develop a practical technique for monitoring deforestation and forest degradation occurred within the mangrove and swamp forest ecosystem.  The SPOT 4, 5 and 6 images acquired in 2007, 2012 and 2014 were transformed into three vegetation indices, i.e., Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Green-Normalized Difference Vegetation index (GNDVI) dan Normalized Green-Red Vegetation index (NRGI).  The study found that deforestation was well detected and identified using the NDVI and GNDVI, however the forest degradation could be well detected using NRGI, better than NDVI and GNDVI.  The study concludes that the strategy for monitoring deforestation, biomass-based forest degradation as well as forest growth could be done by combining the use of NDVI, GNDVI and NRGI respectively.

  • Stochastic Fractal Search for Optimal Reactive Power Dispatch Problem

    • Authors: Thang Nguyen, Hai Van Tran, Ly Huu Pham, Nghia Trong Le
      Abstract: The paper presents applications of Stochastic Fractal Search method (SFS) for dealing with optimal reactive power dispatch (ORPD) problem with target of minimizing power loss, voltage deviation and L index. SFS is a meta-heuristic method consisting of three new solution generation, diffusion process, the first and the second update processes. ORPD is a complicated problem considering all constraints in transmission power network such as voltage of loads and generators, active power and reactive power of generators, reactive power of capacitors, apparent power of conductors, and tap of transformers. In the paper, ORPD is implemented on different study cases of IEEE-30 bus system and IEEE-118 bus system with three independent single objectives such as power loss, voltage deviation and L index. Obtained results from SFS method compared to those from other existing methods can indicate that SFS is more promising than most methods regarding optimal solution quality and search speed. However, SFS is less effective than a few methods. Consequently, it is suggested that SFS should be used as an optimization tool for ORPD problem and modifications performed on SFS are encouraged for better results.

  • Excellent luminous flux of WLEDs with flat dual-layer remote phosphor
           geometry

    • Authors: Nguyễn Đoàn Quốc Anh, Phan Xuan Le
      Abstract: This paper focuses on the comparison of the luminous flux of two dual-remote phosphor structures named flat dual-remote phosphor (FDRP) and concave dual-remote phosphor (CDRP). These two configurations have different luminous flux values due to the disparity in scattering properties in white LEDs. However, the researched results showed that FDRP structure is more lucrative than the CDRP structure when it comes to the luminous flux effectiveness. To support the aforementioned idea, this article also presents the influence of the distance between two phosphor layers (d1) and the distance between the phosphor layer with the LED surface (d2) on the optical properties of the FDRP structure. Specifically, the scattering ability and absorption properties of the remote phosphor layer will vary sharply if d1 and d2 are adjusted into different values, which produces an immense impact on the chromatic homogeneity and illumination capability of WLEDs. Therefore, in order to stabilize the correlated color temperature (CCT) of WLEDs at 8500 K when there is a modification on d1 and d2, the concentration of YAG:Ce3+ phosphor also needs to be varied. Accordingly, the scattering process and absorption phenomenon in the remote phosphor layer will bottom out when d1 = d2 = 0,  leading to the worst color quality and luminous flux.

  • Stochastic Fractal Search based Method for Economic Load Dispatch

    • Authors: Thang Nguyen, Ly Huu Pham, Luc Pham, Nam Nguyen
      Abstract: This paper presents a nature-inspired meta-heuristic, called a stochastic fractal search based method (SFS) for coping with complex economic load dispatch (ELD) problem. Two SFS methods are introduced in the paper by employing two different random walk generators for diffusion process in which SFS with Gaussian random walk is called SFS-Gauss and SFS with Levy Flight random walk is called SFS-Levy. The performance of the two applied methods is investigated comparing results obtained from three test system. These systems with 6, 10, and 20 units with different objective function forms and different constraints are inspected. Numerical result comparison can confirm that the applied approach has better solution quality and fast convergence time when compared with some recently published standard, modified, and hybrid methods. This elucidates that the two SFS methods are very favorable for solving the ELD problem.

  • Improving luminous flux and color homogeneity of dual-layer phosphor
           sctructure

    • Authors: Nguyen Doan Quoc Anh, Phan Xuan Le, Hsiao-Yi Lee
      Abstract: Only with the WLEDs structure but in different color temperatures like 5600 K, 6600 K, 7700K of appearance can we clarify the purpose of the study, which is putting a green phosphor layer SrBaSiO4:Eu2+ on the yellow phosphorus layer YAG:Ce3+. After that, we can find the suitable SrBaSiO4:Eu2+ concentration in order that the luminous flux could get the highest value. The results show that SrBaSiO4:Eu2+ brings great benefits to increasing not only optical gain but also color uniformity. Specifically, the greater the SrBaSiO4:Eu2+ concentration, the greater the output of WLEDs because of the development of green light component in WLEDs. However, only if the SrBaSiO4:Eu2+ concentration exceeds the level, can a slight decrease in color rendering index (CRI) occur. This is based on Monte Carlo simulation. In addition, the results of this paper have contributed significantly to the creation of higher-powered WLEDs.

  • Wireless Power Transfer using the Concept of Magnetic Coil Resonant System

    • Authors: M. Fitra, Elvy Elvy
      Abstract: Long life lithium ion batteries and methanol fuel cells have been persuaded as ways to make the electrical components more mobile, consumers expectations are still far from being met due to the added weight and expenses for battery replacement. The discovery of wireless power transfer as a new option, and holds great promise to leave the oversized battery. The design of wireless power transfer applies the concept of Magnetic Coil Resonant System (MCRS). The concept of MCRS is similar with a function of an antenna to transfer the power from one point to another. Multisim13.0 software is applied to predict the performance of the proposed MCRS. This software simulation is useful to estimate the output wave on the virtual oscilloscope and to obtain the reading of output voltage from the virtual multimeter. The transmitter side contains power supply, transmitter oscillator circuit and transmitter magnetic coil. Transmitter circuit convert DC to AC waveform and the receiver circuit convert AC to DC voltage. The DC Source that connected to Transmitter was provided by the DC source regulator acts as DC source to adjust Voltage and Current separately. The project show the efficiency of the wireless power transfer with different coil diameter and a distance between the transmitter and receiver coil. At a distance of 15 cm, power are successfully transmitted as it is indicated by the LED light to turn on. The increment of size in coil diameter has given a higher power and longer coverage distance for wireless transfer power.

      Abstract: In this study, we investigate the effect of concentration of the red Y2O3:Eu3+ phosphor on the Color Rendering Index (CRI), Color Quality Scale (CQS) and Lumen Output (LO) of the 7000K in-cup packaging white LEDs (IPW-LEDs). The physical model of the 7000K IPW-LEDs is conducted by Light Tools software. By varying the concentration of the red phosphor from 0% to 0.36%, we use the Light Tools software to investigate the CRI, CQS, and LO of the 7000K IPW-LEDs. From the research results, it can be observed that the CRI and CQS can be increased to 85 and 71, respectively. However, the LO has a decrease in the increasing trend of the red phosphor concentration. This paper provides the new recommendation for the manufacturing of the IPW-LEDs.

  • Design and Implementation of Smart Electronic Solar Tracker Based on
           Arduino

    • Authors: Rashid Ali Fayadh
      Abstract: Demand of energy increases in the global and exponential exhaustion is favored of resources by fossil fuel for electricity production with the new systems development. Compared with all other remainder energies, the specialist sun energy is the most bountiful energy and it's typically easy to be changed into electrical energy. The main thing of using solar panel is to produce electrical energy from sun's energy but the optimum energy can be generated by tracking solar panel due to the sun movement from east to west. The problem can be solved by proposed systems where the sun tracking by solar panel that based on high intensity of sun ray.  This paper concentrates on tracking the sun by using stepper motor coupled with solar panel. So that, the largest quantity of sun light at the incident panel along the day at any time is better than that for method of fixed panel array which is less efficient. The microcontroller Arduino (mode UNO) was programmed by using C++ language while the track of sun light processing was implemented by using light depending resistor (LDR), Chip IC H-bridge and microcontroller Arduino (UNO) circuits have been designed by using Proteus software. By circuit design and sun tracking control process, the cost reduction has been improved and high amount of energy was saved when implemented this system.

  • H-infinity controller with graphical LMI region profile for Liquid Slosh
           Suppression

    • Authors: Mohd Zaidi Mohd Tumari, A Shamsul Rahimi A Subki, Mohd Shahrieel Aras, Mohammad 'Afif Kasno, Mohd Ashraf Ahmad, Mohd Helmi Suid
      Abstract: This paper presents a H-infinity synthesis with pole clustering based on LMI region schemes for liquid slosh control. Using LMI approach, the regional pole placement known as LMI region combined with design objective in H-infinity controller guarantee a fast input tracking capability and very minimal liquid slosh. A graphical profile of the transient response of liquid slosh suppression system with respect to pole placement is very useful in giving more flexibility to the researcher in choosing a specific LMI region. With the purpose to confirm the design of control scheme, a liquid slosh model is considered to represent the lateral slosh movement. Supremacy of the proposed approach is shown by comparing the results with hybrid model-free fuzzy-PID controller with derivative filter. The performance of the control schemes is examined in terms of time response specifications of lateral tank tracking capability and level of liquid slosh reduction

  • Proposing a New Method of Image Classification Based on the AdaBoost Deep
           Belief Network Hybrid Method

    • Authors: jamshid bagherzadeh, hasan asil
      Abstract: The hybrid methods were developed to improve the results of the single-component methods. On the other hand, a deep belief network (DBN)is a generative probabilistic modelwith multiple layers of latent variables and is used to solve the unlabeled problems. In fact, this method is anunsupervised method, in which all layers are one-way directed layers except for the last layer. So far, various methods have been proposed for image classification, and the goal of this research project was to use a combination of the AdaBoost method and the deep belief network method to classify images. The other objective was to obtain better results than the previous results. In this project, a combination of the deep belief network and AdaBoost method was used to boost learning and the network potential was enhanced by making the entire network recursive. This method was tested on the MINIST dataset and the results were indicative of a decrease in the error rate with the proposed method as compared to the AdaBoost and deep belief network methods.

  • Advertisement Billboard Detection and Geotagging System with Inductive
           Transfer Learning in Deep Convolutional Neural Network

    • Authors: Romi Fadillah Rahmat
      Abstract: In this paper, we propose an approach to detect and geotag advertisement billboard in real-time condition. Our approach is using AlexNet’s Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) as a pre-trained neural network with 1000 categories for image classification. To improve the performance of the pre-trained neural network, we retrain the network by adding more advertisement billboard images using inductive transfer learning approach. Then, we fine-tuned the output layer into advertisement billboard related categories. Furthermore, the detected advertisement billboard images will be geotagged by inserting Exif metadata into the image file. Experimental results show that the approach achieves 92.7% training accuracy for advertisement billboard detection. In addition, the advertisement billboard geotagging achieves a good performance under 4G networks.

  • USING MACHINE LEARNING FOR THE CLASSIFICATION OF THE MODERN ARABIC POETRY

    • Authors: munef A ahmed
      Abstract: In recent years, working on text classification and analysis of Arabic texts using machine learning has seen some progress, but most of this research has not focused on Arabic poetry. Because of some difficulties in the analysis of Arabic poetry, it was required the use of standard Arabic language on which “Al Arud”, the science of studying poetry is based. This paper presents an approach that uses machine learning for the classification of modern Arabic poetry into four types: love poems, Islamic poems, social poems, and political poems. Each of these species usually has features that indicate the class of the poem. Despite the challenges generated by the difficulty of the rules of the Arabic language on which this classification depends, we proposed a new automatic way of modern Arabic poems classification to solve these issues. The recommended method is suitable for the above-mentioned classes of poems. This study used Naïve Bayes, Support Vector Machines, and Linear Support Vector for the classification processes. Data preprocessing was an important step of the approach in this paper, as it increased the accuracy of the classification.

  • A Wireless Precoding Technique for Millimetre-Wave MIMO System based on
           SIC-MMSE

    • Authors: Rounakul Islam Boby, Khaizuran Abdullah, A.Z. Jusoh, Nagma Parveen, A.L. Asnawi
      Abstract: A communication method is proposed using Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) precoding and Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) technique for millimetre-wave multiple-input multiple-output (mm-Wave MIMO) based wireless communication system. The mm-Wave MIMO technology for wireless communication system is the base potential technology for its high data transfer rate followed by data instruction and low power consumption compared to Long-Term Evolution (LTE). The mm-Wave system is already available in indoor hotspot and Wi-Fi backhaul for its high bandwidth availability and potential lead to rate of numerous Gbps/user. But, in mobile wireless communication system this technique is lagging because the channel faces relative orthogonal coordination and multiple node detection problem while rapid movement of nodes (transmitter and receiver) occur. To improve the conventional mm-wave MIMO nodal detection and coordination performance, the system processes data using symbolized error vector technique for linearization. Then the MMSE precoding detection technique improves the link strength by constantly fitting the channel coefficients based on number of independent service antennas (M), Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), Channel Matrix (CM) and mean square errors (MSE). To maintain sequentially encoded user data connectivity and to overcome data loss, SIC method is used in combination with MMSE. MATLAB was used to validate the proposed system performance.

  • Improving Compliance with Bluetooth Device Detection

    • Authors: Martin Davies, Eoghan Furey, Kevin Curran
      Abstract: The number of devices containing Bluetooth chipsets is continuing to rise and there exists a need to stem the tidal wave of vulnerabilities brought by the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Internet of Things
      (IoT) phenomena. With Bluetooth enabled but discovery mode turned off, auditing for Bluetooth devices, or creating an accurate Bluetooth device hardware log is limited. The software tools and hardware
      devices to monitor WiFi networking signals have long been a part of the security auditor’s arsenal, but similar tools for Bluetooth are bespoke, expensive, and not adopted by most security pentesters. However, this has changed with the introduction of the Ubertooth One, a low-cost and open-source platform for monitoring Bluetooth Classic signals. Using a combination of the Ubertooth One, and other high-power Bluetooth devices, an auditor should now be able to actively scan for rogue devices that may otherwise have been missed. This research examines various hardware combinations that can be used to achieve this functionality, and the possible implications from a compliance point of view, with a focus on the standards used by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), and the guidelines offered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). We compare the results of scanning with traditional Bluetooth devices as opposed to an Ubertooth/Bluetooth combination. We show how the ability to monitor a larger portion of Bluetooth traffic can highlight serious implications in the compliance landscape of many organisations and companies. We demonstrate that identifying non-discoverable devices with Bluetooth enabled is a crucial element in holistic security monitoring of threats.

  • A Novel Elementary Spatial Expanding Scheme Form on SISR Method with
           Modifying Geman&Mcclure Function

    • Authors: Darun Kesrarat, Kornkamol Thakulsukanant, Vorapoj Patanavijit
      Abstract: Because of the feasible and impressive fallout, the classical Super-Resolution Reconstruction (SRR) is the contemporary algorithm for improving spatial information and reducing noise and SISR (Single-Image Super-Resolution) method, which is form on the classical SRR, is solely developed for improving spatial information. Disastrously, deficiency of the classical SISR method is conceptually computed from three specifications (b, h, k) and the simulating calculation of the optimized specifications for interpolating the better and higher spatial information images with highest PSNR is so burdersome. For figuring out this issue, the Geman&Mcclure function is proposed to replace with the ordinary SISR function because this function is conceptually computed from only one specification (T), contrary to three specifications similar to classical SISR method hence this analytic article focuses to offer a novel elementary spatial expanding scheme form on SISR method with modifying Geman&Mcclure function. Therefore, the fallout of a proposed spatial expanding scheme approximately matches to classical SISR method. From these reason, a novel elementary spatial expanding scheme is easily implemented for real works.

  • Energy Extraction Method for EEG Channel Selection

    • Authors: Hilman Fauzi, M. Abdullah Azzam, Mohd. Ibrahim Shapiai, Masaki Kyoso, Uswah Khairuddin, Tadayasu Komura
      Abstract: Channel selection is an improvement technique to optimize EEG-based BCI performance. In previous studies, many channel selection methods—mostly based on spatial information of signals—have been introduced. One of these channel selection techniques is the energy calculation method. In this paper, we introduce an energy optimization calculation method, called the energy extraction method. Energy extraction is an extension of the energy calculation method, and is divided into two steps. The first step is energy calculation and the second is energy selection. In the energy calculation step, l2-norm is used to calculate channel energy, while in the energy selection method we propose three techniques: “high value” (HV), “close to mean” (CM), and “automatic”. All proposed framework schemes for energy extraction are applied in two types of datasets. Two classes of datasets i.e. motor movement (hand and foot movement) and motor imagery (imagination of left and right hand movement) were used. The system used a Common Spatial Pattern (CSP) method to extract EEG signal features and k-NN as a classification method to classify the signal features with k = 3. Based on the test results, all schemes for the proposed energy extraction method yielded improved BCI performance of up to 58%. In summary, the energy extraction approach using the CM energy selection method was found to be the best channel selection technique.

  • Understanding user intention in image retrieval using multiple concept
           hierarchies

    • Authors: Abdelmadjid Youcefa, Mohammed Lamine KHERFI, Belal Khaldi, Oussama Aiadi
      Abstract: Image retrieval is the technique that helps Users to find and retrieve desired images from a large image dataset. The user has firstly to formulate a query that expresses his/her needs.  This query may come in textual form as in semantic retrieval, in visual example form as in query by visual example, or as a combination of these two forms named query by semantic example. The focus of this paper lies in the techniques of analysing queries composed of multiple semantic examples. This is a very challenging task, to solve such a problem, we introduce a model based on Bayesian generalization. In cognitive science, Bayesian generalization, which is the base of most works in literature, is a method that tries to find, in one hierarchy of concepts, the parent concept of a given set of concepts. In addition and instead of using one single concept hierarchy, we propose a generalization so it can be used with multiple hierarchies where each one has a different semantic context and contains several abstraction levels. Experimental evaluations demonstrate that our method, which uses multiple hierarchies, yields better results than those using only one single hierarchy.

  • Chest Radiograph Image Enhancement with Wavelet Decomposition and
           Morphological Operations

    • Authors: Anthony Y Aidoo, Matilda Wilson, Gloria A. Botchway
      Abstract: Medical image processing algorithms significantly affect the precision of
      disease diagnostic process. This makes it crucial to improve the quality of a medical image with the goal to enhance perceivability of the points of interest in order to obtain accurate diagnosis of a patient.  Despite the reliance of various medical diagnostics on utilize X-rays, they are usually plagued by dark and low contrast properties. Sought-after  details in X-rays can only be accessed by means of digital image processing techniques, despite the fact that these techniques are far from being  perfect. In this paper, we implement a wavelet decomposition and reconstruction technique to enhance radiograph properties, some of which include contrast and noise, by using a series of morphological erosion and dilation to improve the visual quality of the chest radiographs for the detection of cancer nodules.

  • Risk Simulation of having Direct Contact with Electric Urban Networks

    • Authors: Fernando Martínez Santa, Fredy H. Martínez, Edwar Jacinto
      Abstract: To know the electric risks for the human health having electric discharges on low and medium voltage urban networks, helps to the people to make aware about doing actions of prevention and safety, which reach to prevent injuries and/or accidental deaths. In this paper, simulations on ATP-Draw software over three different specific risk cases were done, based on the concurrent problem presented in the central region of Colombia between august and october when people use to fly kites. The first case analyzed is an individual who has an indirect contact with medium voltage transmission lines by means on a conventional kite, presenting no serious effects on its health. In the second and in the third case, the individual generates a direct contact both low and medium voltage lines, when tries to recover a stuck kite, receiving high health effects even producing death. The main goal of this work is to show the different consequences and effects in the human body which are presented over a person when receiving an electric discharge by direct contact, in order to prevent accidents.

  • Humidity Effect on Electrical Properties of Graphene Oxide Back-to-Back
           Schottky Diode

    • Authors: Shaharin Fadzli Abd Rahman, Nurul Anati Salleh, Mastura Shafinaz Zainal Abidin, Amirjan Nawabjan
      Abstract: A Schottky diode-based sensor is a promising structure for high sensitive and low power sensor. This paper investigates a device called back-to-back Schottky diode (BBSD) for humidity sensing operation. The BBSD provides simpler device configuration that can be fabricated using less complicated process. The current-voltage characteristic of the fabricated BBSD was measured at different relative humidity. From the obtained characteristics, series resistance, barrier height and ideality factor was analyzed. The device current increased at higher humidity level. The current increase could be associated to the decrease in series resistance, barrier height and ideality factor. When humidity decreased from 11 % to 97%, the barrier height showed reduction of 0.1 eV. The barrier height reduction was explained by considering electric field-induced reduction of graphene oxide. The observed result confirmed the device feasibility as promising simple and low cost humidity sensor.

  • 128mA CMOS LDO with 108db PSRR at 2.4MHz Frequency

    • Authors: Astrie Nurasyeila Fifie, Yan Chiew Wong
      Abstract: A low dropout (LDO) voltage regulator with high power supply rejection ratio (PSRR) and low temperature coefficient (TC) is presented in this paper. Large 1µF off-chip load capacitor is used to achieve the high PSRR. However, this decreases the gain and pushes the LDO’s output pole to lower frequency causing the circuit to become unstable. The proposed LDO uses rail-to-rail folded cascode amplifier to compensate the gain and stability problems. 2nd order curvature characteristic is used in bandgap voltage reference circuit that is applied at the input of the amplifier to minimize the TC. The characteristic is achieved by implementing MOSFET transistors operate in weak and strong inversions. The LDO is designed using 0.18µm CMOS technology and achieves a constant 1.8V output voltage for input voltages from 3.2V to 5V and load current up to a 128mA at temperature between -40°C to 125°C. The proposed LDO is targeted for RF application which has stringent requirement on noise rejection over a broad range of frequency.128mA CMOS LDO with 108db PSRR at 2.4MHz Frequency

  • Optical Fiber Tip Sensor for Glucose-Adulterated Honey Detection

    • Authors: Nazirah Mohd Razali, Aimi Najwa Mazlan, Mohammad Farizuddin Salebi, Habibah Mohamed, Sumiaty Ambran
      Abstract: Honey, a natural sweet substance and also a high-value foodstuff has been a target for adulteration. This paper reports the early stage development of optical fiber tip sensor using a standard single mode fiber for adulterated honey detection. The development of simple, sensitive and low-cost sensor for direct detection of adulterated honey is a considerable interest in this context. A pure stingless bee honey was mixed with glucose adulterant at different volume ratios for the adulteration process. By changing this chemical composition, the refractive index of the adulterated honey varied and Fresnel reflection occured at the interface between the fiber tip and the adulterated honey solution also changed. The average sensitivity achieved by this sensor is 0.29 dBm/% with linear regression value up 0.97. This shows that, the sensor has a potential in adulterated honey detection.

  • AC Breakdown Behavior of SF6/N2 Gas Mixtures under Non-Uniform Field
           Electrode Configurations

    • Authors: N. F. Ambo, H. Zainuddin, M. S. Kamarudin, J. M. Wari, A. Zahari
      Abstract: Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas owns remarkable properties as insulation medium and current interrupter, which make it being widely used in gas-insulated equipment up to now. However, SF6 gas has a drawback that gives adverse effect to the environment since it is a strong greenhouse gas. As the effort to minimize the SF6 usage, this study was conducted to investigate the AC breakdown behavior of SF6/N2 gas mixtures with 10/90 ratio at low pressure levels (i.e. 0.11 MPa to 0.15 MPa) under non uniform field (i.e. R0.5-plane and R6-plane electrodes configurations). The results of the study indicate that the breakdown voltage of SF6/N2 gas mixtures in non-uniform field increases linearly with the increase of gas pressure and electrodes gap distance. As a function of gap distance, a higher increasing rate of breakdown voltage values were achieved at lowest pressure of 0.11 MPa compared to other pressure levels. In addition, it is also found that a higher breakdown voltage values was obtained under R6-plane configuration. But, the difference in breakdown voltage values between R0.5-plane and R6-plane configuration is less significant as the gap distance is increased. It is also observed that the field efficiency factor of R6-plane is higher than R0.5-plane which indicates a more uniform field exists between the electrodes.

  • HEVC 2D-DCT Architectures Comparison for FPGA and ASIC Implementations

    • Authors: Ainy Haziyah Awab, Ab Al-Hadi Ab Rahman, Mohd Shahrizal Rusli, Usman Ullah Sheikh, Izam Kamisian, Goh Kam Meng
      Abstract: This paper compares ASIC and FPGA implementations of two commonly used architectures for 2-dimensional discrete cosine transform (DCT), the parallel and folded architectures. The DCT has been designed for sizes 4x4, 8x8, and 16x16, and implemented on Silterra 180nm ASIC and Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA. The objective is to determine suitable low energy architectures to be used as their characteristics greatly differ in terms of cells usage, placement and routing methods on these platforms. The parallel and folded DCT architectures for all three sizes have been designed using Verilog HDL, including the basic serializer-deserializer input and output. Results show that for large size transform of 16x16, ASIC parallel architecture results in roughly 30% less energy compared to folded architecture. As for FPGAs, folded architecture results in roughly 34% less energy compared to parallel architecture. In terms of overall energy consumption between 180nm ASIC and Xilinx Ultrascale, ASIC implementation results in about 58% less energy compared to the FPGA.

      Abstract: This paper reported the finding of a new two-scroll chaotic system possessing two nonlinearities. The dynamical properties of the system such as dissipativity, equilibrium points, Lyapunov exponents, Kaplan-Yorke dimension and bifurcation diagram were studied in detail. The presence of coexisting chaotic attractors, coexisting chaotic and periodic attractors in the system was investigated. In addition, the offset boosting of a variable was achieved by adding a single controlled constant. It was shown that the new chaotic system has rotation symmetry about the z-axis. An electronic circuit simulation of the new two-scroll chaotic system was built using Multisim to check the feasibility of the model.

  • Temperature Characterization of (Si-FinFET) based on Channel Oxide
           Thickness

    • Authors: Yasir H. Hashim, Yousif Atalla, Abdul Nasir Abd Ghafar, Waheb Abdul Jabar
      Abstract: This paper presents the temperature-gate oxide thickness characteristics of a fin field-effect transistor (FinFET) and discusses the possibility of using such a transistor as a temperature nano-sensor. The investigation of channel oxide thickness–based temperature characteristics is useful to optimized electrical and temperature characteristics of FinFET. Current–voltage characteristics with different temperatures and gate oxide thickness values (Tox = 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 nm) are initially simulated, and the diode mode connection is considered to measure FinFET’s temperature sensitivity. Finding the best temperature sensitivity of FinFET is based on the largest change in current (∆I) within a working voltage range of 0–5 V. According to the results, the temperature sensitivity of FinFET increases linearly with oxide thickness within the range of 1–5 nm, furthermore, the threshold voltage and drain-induced barrier lowering increase with increasing oxide thickness. Also, the subthreshold swing (SS) is close to the ideal value at the minimum oxide thickness (1 nm) then increases and diverges with increasing oxide thickness. So, The best oxide thickness (nearest SS value to the ideal one) of FinFET under the conditions described in this research is 1 nm.

  • Adaptive Control of Nonlinear System based on QFT Application to 3-DOF
           Flight Control System

    • Authors: Rounakul Islam Boby, Khaizuran Abdullah, A.Z. Jusoh, Nagma Parveen, Md Mahmud
      Abstract: Research on unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) became popular because of remote flight access and cost-effective solution. 3-degree of freedom (3-DOF) unmanned helicopters is one of the popular research UAV, because of its high load carrying capacity with a smaller number of motor and requirement of forethought motor control dynamics. Various control algorithms are investigated and designed for the motion control of the 3DOF helicopter. Three-degree-of-freedom helicopter model configuration presents the same advantages of 3-DOF helicopters along with increased payload capacity, increase stability in hover, manoeuvrability and reduced mechanical complexity. Numerous research institutes have chosen the three-degree-of-freedom as an ideal platform to develop intelligent controllers. In this research paper, we discussed about a hybrid controller that combined with Adaptive and Quantitative Feedback theory (QFT) controller for the 3-DOF helicopter model. Though research on Adaptive and QFT controller are not a new subject, the first successful single Adaptive aircraft flight control systems have been designed for the U.S. Air Force in Wright Laboratories unmanned research vehicle, Lambda [1]. Previously researcher focused on structured uncertainties associated with controller for the flight conditions theoretically. The development of simulationbased design on flight control system response, opened a new dimension for researcher to design physical flight controller for plant parameter uncertainties. At the beginning, our research was to investigates the possibility of developing the QFT combined with Adaptive controller to control a single pitch angle that meets flying quality conditions of automatic flight control. Finally, we successfully designed the hybrid controller that is QFT based adaptive controller for all the three angles.

  • A New Technique to Reduce Overshoot in Pneumatic Positioning System

    • Authors: Siti Fatimah Sulaiman, M. F. Rahmat, A. A. M. Faudzi, Khairuddin Osman
      Abstract: This paper presents a new approach for improving the performance of the pneumatic positioning system by incorporating a nonlinear gain function with observer system. System identification technique has been employed to represent the pneumatic system, while a model predictive control (MPC) with the observer system has been employed as the main controller to control the positioning of the system. The nonlinear gain function has been incorporated with the control strategy to compensate nonlinearities and uncertainties inherent in the parameters of the system. Unconstrained and constrained cases of control signals have been considered in this study. Simulation based on Matlab/Simulink indicated a reduction in overshoot of the system response for both cases due to additional nonlinear gain function in the strategy. Furthermore, remarkable enhancement was observed in effectiveness of this function while incorporated in constrained case, when this new strategy successfully improved the transient response in the pneumatic positioning system.

  • Performance Comparison of PEMFC Hydrogen Reformer with Different
           Controllers

    • Authors: Nor Aira Zambri, Norhafiz Bin Salim, Faridah Hanim Mohd Noh, Sim Sy Yi
      Abstract: The renewable energy technology has become very popular due to major constraint in the existing electrical system such as high electricity demand, increased in fuel prices and concern of environmental pollution. The aims of this project are to develop a complete Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) model with hydrogen reformer by using MATLAB/ Simulink with three different controllers and comparison between the three controllers will be discussed. This project presents the development of methods to solve the problem of PEMFC output voltage by using different controllers which are Proportional Integral (PI), Proportional Integral Derivatives (PID) and Proportional Integral Fuzzy (PI-Fuzzy) controllers. The Ziegler Nicholas tuning method is used to tune PI and PID gains in a Simulink model. It helps the system to achieve a balance between performance and robustness for both controllers. The Mamdani type was used to develop the fuzzy controller in Simulink model. The transient performances that will be discussed are rise time, settling time, maximum overshoot, and percentage of overshoot. The results show that the proposed PI-Fuzzy is better than the conventionally used PI and PID controllers.

  • Optimization of PID for Industrial Electro-Hydraulic Actuator using PSOGSA

    • Authors: Mohammed Maged Abdullah Alqadasi, Siti Marhainis Othman, M.F. Rahmat, Fahisal Abdullah
      Abstract: The Electro-hydraulic actuator (EHA) systems known to be extremely nonlinear due to its dynamic characteristics and these existing nonlinearities and uncertainties yield to the constraint in the control of EHA system, which influences the position tracking accuracy and affect the occurrences of leakage and friction in the system. The purpose of this work is to develop the mathematical model for the industrial electrohydraulic actuator, then to design a controller by proportional-integral-derivative (PID) and optimize the parameters using Particle Swarm Optimization - Gravitational Search Algorithm (PSOGSA). A few controllers such as conventional PID (CPID) and model reference adaptive control (MRAC) designed for comparison. The performance of PID, PID-PSOGSA and modern controller MRAC will be compared in order to determine the most efficient controller. Despite all controllers are capable to provide good performance, PID-PSOGSA control methods generate good response compared to PID and MRAC in term of positioning.

  • A Methodology for Precise Estimation of Rain Attenuation on Terrestrial
           Millimetre Wave Links from Raindrop Size Distribution Measurements

    • Authors: Manhal Alhilali, Mustafa Ghanim, Jafri Din, Hong Yin Lam
      First page: 2139
      Abstract: Attenuation by atmospheric rain is the most significant impairment in millimetre wave frequencies (mmWave). Modern instruments could provide detailed measurements of rain, such as raindrop size distributions (DSDs). The analysis of DSDs could estimate their effects on past or co-located links measurements. This study presents propagation analysis in the mmWave bands using measurements of two terrestrial links working at 26 and 38 GHz carried out in Johor, Malaysia. Statistics obtained have been analysed in detail to extract any excess attenuation. The DSDs provided by a disdrometer have been used to estimate rain attenuation. The derived results show that the estimation can provide reasonable accuracy after extracting the wet antenna effects and having the advantage of the availability of measurements from various types of equipment.

      First page: 2147
      Abstract: In this paper, a downlink scenario of a non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) scheme with power constraint via spectrum sensing is considered. Such network provides improved outage performance and new scheme of NOMA-based cognitive radio (CR-NOMA) network are introduced. The different power allocation factors are examined subject to performance gap among these secondary NOMA users. To evaluate system performance, the exact outage probability expressions of secondary users are derived. Finally, the dissimilar performance problem in term of secondary users is illustrated via simulation, in which a power allocation scheme and the threshold rates are considered as main impacts of varying system performance. The simulation results show that the performance of CR-NOMA network can be improved significantly.

           Rates

      First page: 2161
      Abstract: The exponential growth in demand for high data rate transmission to users in fifth generation wireless networks, focus there has been a particular research focus on new techniques that achievable high data rate by suppressing interference between neighboring cells. In this paper, we propose that system performance can be improved by using perfect channel estimation and reducing effective interference with pilot reuse that mitigate strong pilot contamination based on the knowledge of large-scale fading coefficients. We derived the lower bounds on the achievable data rate in downlink by analyzing the performance of the zero-forcing precoding method and derive the signal-to-interference noise ratio to mitigate interference between neighboring cells. From the simulation results, the large pilot reuse sequences improved the achievable data rate and provided better estimation for a channel. When the number of users is large, the interference between neighboring cells can be suppressed by using orthogonal pilot reuse sequences.

      Abstract: This paper proposes an improved user-centric Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA) communication in two-base station networks with in-band full duplex (IBFD) user. We derive the achievable rates of the proposed user-centric NOMA systems. For benchmarking purposes, we also derive the achievable rate for the user-centric system deploying conventional NOMA schemes, Orthogonal Multiple Access (OMA) schemes and point-point communication systems. We then analyze and simulate the performance of the proposed and all the benchmarked systems. We found that our proposed user-centric NOMA approach has a 64% improvement in the total achievable rate when compared to the benchmarked approach under similar power constraint.

      Abstract: The development of telecommunications networks is currently dominated by fiber optics. The fiber optic has become a waveguide medium transmitting information with high frequency bands, high capacity and high speed. An optical amplifier is required to maintain electromagnetic signals when they propagate in far distance. One of the amplifiers, Fiber Raman Amplifiers (FRA) which is the light scattering from the light that comes with the phonon in the lattice of amplification medium produces photons that are coherent with the incoming photons. Many amplifiers are commonly used but the problems not only come from the amplifier but also the component circuit and system. By simulation method, FRA circuit is designed and operated in the form of pre-amplifiers to maintain a better signal from material interference and geometry. The simulation results show that the lowest BER value and the highest Q-factor are found at a distance of 10km depicted by eye diagram.

  • Comparison Study on Secrecy Outage Probability of AF-NOMA and AF-OMA
           Networks

    • Authors: Dinh-Thuan Do, Minh-Sang Nguyen
      First page: 2200
      Abstract: A new design of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is considered in this study under secrecy outage probability performance considerations. The Amplify-and-Forward (AF) relaying scheme is applied in this system model. In case of existence of an external eavesdropper, a transmitter sends confidential messages to far users in the presence of an external eavesdropper in concerned NOMA system. To highlight performance of NOMA system model, orthogonal multiple access (OMA) is compared with respect to both secure performance and transmit SNR. In particular, the secrecy outage probability is evaluated as the secrecy metric to limit impacts of the practical passive eavesdropper in real scenario. It is confirmed that the secrecy outage is significant lower than OMA due to related parameters characterization in NOMA, and it should be controlled by varying related coefficients. Finally, we show the both of NOMA and OMA against to impact of eavesdropper in the studied problems in terms of analytically result and numerically result.

      Abstract: Today banks have many branches in big cities of the world. System usually used  a central database in a particular city. Increased of database server performance due to number of users accessing this application should not degrade performance of application. To keep  database server performance optimally, application must distributed to the network. Therefore it is going to used three-tier application, because three-tier applications support deployment of distributed-based applications component. In distributed applications it takes a remote method call, that is why we are going to used Remote Method Invocation to develop this system. Based on results of analysis conducted, author can draw some following conclusion of the application, which are it can be run as a separate process on the same computer or run on a different computer, then once the client get a reference from the remote object then method of remote object is called like calling method from local object and methods that we have defined and implemented on remote object can we call or use both on desktop and web applications so we do not need to work twice.

  • Comparative Analysis of LTE Backbone Transport Techniques for Efficient
           Broadband Penetration in a Heterogeneous Network Morphology

    • Authors: Ifeanyi Maryrose Chinaeke-Ogbuka
      First page: 2226
      Abstract: In the bid to bring about a solution to the nagging problem associated with the provision of ubiquitous broadband access, Next Generation Network (NGN) popularly referred to as Long Term Evolution (LTE) network with appropriate network integration technique is recommended as solution. Currently, Internet Protocol/Multi-Protocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) is the transport technique in LTE backbone infrastructure. This technique, however, suffers significantly in the event of failure of IP path resulting in delay and packet loss budgets across the network. The resultant effect is degradation in users’ quality of service (QoS) experience with real-time services.  A competitive alternative is the Internet Protocol /Asynchronous Transfer Mode (IP/ATM). This transport technique provides great dynamism in the allocation of bandwidth and supports varying requests of multimedia connections with diverse QoS requirements. This paper, therefore, seeks to evaluate the performance of these two transport techniques in a bid to establish the extent to which the latter technique ameliorates the aforementioned challenges suffered by the previous technique. Results from the simulation show that the IP/ATM transport scheme is superior to the IP/MPLS scheme in terms of average bandwidth utilization, mean traffic drop and mean traffic delay in the ratio of 9.8, 8.7 and 1.0% respectively.

  • Circular Polarization Folded Reflectarray Antenna for 5G Applications

    • Authors: Mohd Fairus Mohd Yusoff, Lim Jit Min, Mohamad Rijal Hamid, Zaharah Johari, Muhammad Naeem Iqbal
      First page: 2250
      Abstract: Fifth-generation (5G) is a wireless connection built specifically to keep up with the rapid increase of devices that need a mobile internet connection. A system working on 5G band can provide higher bandwidth and faster data rate as compared to fourth-generation (4G) band. Thus, an antenna with higher gain and lower profile is required to support this system. On the other hand, the performance of circular polarization antenna is better than linear polarization antenna due to its ability to accept wave from different direction. In this project, a low profile circular polarization folded reflectarray antenna with operating frequency of 28 GHz is presented. This project is divided into two parts. In the first part, a linear polarization folded reflectarray antenna is designed. In this second part, a meander lines polarizer is used to convert the linear polarization antenna to circular polarization antenna. The antenna is fed by a linear polarized waveguide. Each radiating element of the antenna is in rectangular shape. The size of the radiating elements are selected according to obtain required phase delay to form a planar phase front in the far-field distance. Both of the antennas are simulated by using Computer Simulation Technology (CST) software. Finally, the results shows excellent performances with 16.81dB directivity and 1.49dB axial ratio at 28GHz. Thus, the antenna is very suitable for 5G applications.

      Abstract: Information security is very important and has been widely implemented. Cryptography and steganography are two common methods that can be implemented to secure and conceal the information. In this research, the proposed AES algorithm for cryptography and DWT for steganography. However, in case of implementing DWT as a steganography, there is a weakness which is a lower capacity. Based on DWT’s problem, proposed Huffman Coding to reduce the total of message’s bit and increase the capacity. In the implementation, a message will be processed by using AES and compressed by using Huffman Coding then conceal in a cover using DWT. After doing several experiments using a 128x128 pixel message image and a 512x512 pixel of the cover image, achieved the average of MSE is 1.5676 and the average of PSNR result is above 40db which is 46.1878

      Abstract: This paper describes the breakdown characteristic of the low density poly ethylene film caused by partial discharge in the air gap. The purpose of this paper is to clarify the effect number of discharge under repetition rectangular pulses with a needle-plane electrode system as a function of pulse frequency. The result performed, from 10 Hz up to 1000 Hz. From 10 Hz to 200 Hz, the pulse number up to breakdown did not change significantly with increasing the pulse frequency and the magnitude of partial discharge function of pulse number with varied frequency until breakdown were similar. By using both potential decay and surface degradation analysis function of number of pulse, the breakdown phenomena caused by partial discharge was shown to reveal a significant correlation between electrical properties and the transparency of its surface to change deposited on it by a partial discharge exposure.

      Abstract:  Limboto Lake is one of the lakes in Gorontalo Province; its water supply is generated from 23 small and large rivers. The lake holds potential in several sectors, e.g., tourism, fisheries, socio-economy and culture. However, such an advantage has no quality information system as it is found that there are no particular services that manage the information regarding Limboto Lake accurately. The objective of this research is to create an information system for the management of the potential area of the lake to provide quality services to access the information accurately and completely. The provided information is also updated timely. This research employed the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) method in the development of the information system. Furthermore, the data were collected from interview, observation, and reviewing literature and document. This system is tested using white box and black box where it generated the expected outcome and is web-based. The output of this research is a system that eases the society to access the information regarding the management of the potential area in Limboto Lake.

  • Main Energy-Efficient MAC Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks: A Survey

    • Authors: DJIMLI Abdelmalek, MERNIZ Salah, HAROUS Saad
      First page: 2301
      Abstract: MAC Protocols enables sensor nodes of the same WSN to access a common shared communication channel. Many researchers have proposed different solutions explaining how to design and implement these protocols. The main goal of most MACs protocols is how to prolong lifetime of the WSN as long as possible by reducing energy consumption since it is often impossible to change or to recharge sensors’ batteries. The majority of these protocols designed for WSN are based on “duty-cycle” technique. Every node of the WSN operates on two periods: active period and sleep period to save energy. Until now (to our knowledge) there is no ideal protocol for this purpose. The main reason relies on the lack of standardization at lower layers (physical layer) and (physical) sensor hardware.  Therefore, the MAC protocol choice remains application-dependent. A useful MAC protocol should be able to adapt to network changes (topology, nodes density and network size). This paper surveys MAC protocols for WSNs and discusses the main characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of currently popular protocols.

  • An Empiric Path Towards Fraud Detection and Protection for NFC-Enabled
           Mobile Payment System

    • Authors: Pinki Prakash Vishwakarma
      First page: 2313
      Abstract: The synthesis of NFC technology accompanying mobile payment is a state-of-the-art resolution for payment users. In view of rapid development in electronic payment system there is rise in fraudulent activity in banking transactions associated with credit cards and card-not-present transaction. M-Commerce aid the consumers and helps to bestow real-time information in payment system. Due to the familiarization of m-commerce there is cogent increase in the number of fraudulent activities, emerging in billions of dollar loss every year worldwide. To absolute the security breaches, payment transactions could be confined by considering various parameters like user and device authentication, consumer behavior pattern, geolocation and velocity. In this paper we formally assay NFC-enabled mobile payment fraud detection ecosystem using score-based evaluation method. The fraud detection ecosystem will provide a solution based on transaction risk-modeling, scoring transaction, business rule-based, and cross-field referencing. The score-based evaluation method will analyze the transaction and reckon every transaction for fraud risk and take pertinent decision.

  • Crowdsourcing in Developing Repository of Phrase Definition in Bahasa
           Indonesia

    • Authors: Husni Thamrin, Gunawan Ariyanto, Irma Yuliana, Wawan Joko Pranoto
      First page: 2321
      Abstract: Language repository is valuable as a reference in using the language, its preservation, and in developing and implementation of natural language processing algorithms. Bahasa Indonesia is one of natural languages that hardly has repository despite its large number of speakers and previous attempts to build ones. We devised a way to develop repository of phrase definition in Bahasa using a kind of crowdsourcing and investigated its implementation. An application add-on was inserted to an information system that manages final year projects of undergraduate students. The add-on invites students to participate in writing keyword definition and validating definition. Investigation in a period of six months reveals that about 25% of application users take parts into the voluntary activities either as definition writers and/or validators. During the period, about 1200 phrase definitions were added into the repository and in average each definition is validated by two participants. The activity is supported by users that are well aware of the tasks, and have positive perception about the work, despite different reasons that motivate their contribution.

  • Blind Multi-Signature Scheme Based On Factoring And Discrete Logarithm
           Problem

    • Authors: Duc Tan Nguyen, Hai Nam Nguyen, Minh Hieu Nguyen
      First page: 2327
      Abstract: One of the important objectives of information security systems is providing authentication of the electronic documents and messages. In that, blind signature schemes are an important solution to protect the privacy of users in security electronic transactions by highlighting the anonymity of participating parties. Many studies have focused on blind signature schemes, however, most of the studied schemes are based on single computationally difficult problem. Also digital signature schemes from two difficult problems were proposed but the fact is that only finding solution to single hard problem then these digital signature schemes are breakable. In this paper, we propose a new signature schemes base on the combination of the RSA and Schnorr signature schemes which are based on two hard problems: IFP and DLP. Then expanding to propose a single blind signature scheme, a blind multi-signature scheme, which are based on new baseline schemes
