  • An Efficient IoT-Based Platform for Remote Real-Time Cardiac Activity
    • Authors: Sandeep Raj;
      Pages: 106 - 114
      Abstract: In this article, a novel and an efficient methodology is presented for real-time monitoring of ECG signals. The method involves fast Fourier transform (FFT) based discrete wavelet transform (DWT) for extracting the features from the heartbeats which involves less computational complexity in terms of additions and multiplications operations for higher order filter lengths. These features extracted are recognized using particle swarm optimization (PSO) tuned twin support vector machines (TSVM) classifier. The TSVM classifier is four times faster than the standard SVM while the PSO technique is employed to gradually tune the classifier parameters to achieve more accuracy. The proposed methodology is implemented on IoT based microcontroller platform and validated on the benchmark Physionet data to classify 16 categories of ECG signals. Once an abnormality is detected, the platform generates a pop-up message as a warning and sends the information to a remote platform allowing hospitals to take preventive measures. The platform reported a higher overall accuracy of 95.68% than the existing studies. Further, such implementation can be utilized as a warning system in both homecare as well as tele-monitoring applications to continuously monitor the cardiac condition of a subject anywhere to the state-of-art heart disease diagnosis.

  • iLog: An Intelligent Device for Automatic Food Intake Monitoring and
           Stress Detection in the IoMT
    • Authors: Laavanya Rachakonda;Saraju P. Mohanty;Elias Kougianos;
      Pages: 115 - 124
      Abstract: Not knowing when to stop eating or how much food is too much can lead to many health issues. In iLog, we propose a system which can not only monitor but also create awareness for the user of how much food is too much. iLog provides information on the emotional state of a person along with the classification of eating behaviors to Normal-Eating or Stress-Eating. Chronic stress, uncontrolled or unmonitored food consumption, and obesity are intricately connected, even involving certain neurological adaptations. We propose a deep learning model for edge computing platforms which can automatically detect, classify and quantify the objects from the plate of the user. Three different paradigms where the idea of iLog can be performed are explored in this research. Two different edge platforms have been implemented in iLog. The platforms include mobile, as it is widely used, and a single board computer which can easily be a part of network for executing experiments with iLog-Glasses being the main wearable. The iLog model has produced an overall accuracy of 98% with an average precision of 85.8%.

  • Speech Enhancement Parameter Adjustment to Maximize Accuracy of Automatic
           Speech Recognition
    • Authors: Tomoko Kawase;Manabu Okamoto;Takaaki Fukutomi;Yamato Takahashi;
      Pages: 125 - 133
      Abstract: Consumer electronics equipped with a microphone array, such as car navigation devices and headsets commonly implement speech enhancement techniques based on the gradient method to cope with additive noise. However, while these techniques had been originally developed for voice communication and can maximize the signal-to-distortion ratio (SDR), they cannot always maximize automatic speech recognition (ASR) accuracy. For this reason, the front-end speech enhancement parameters have been adjusted by human experts to each environment and acoustic model. In this study, we developed a novel system for maximizing the accuracy of a given ASR engine by automatically adjusting the front-end speech enhancement. The proposed method allows consumers to use ASR through the consumer electronics with less stress when ambient noise varies. A genetic algorithm (GA) is used to generate parameter values of the front-end speech enhancement for particular environments. The generated values can be dynamically assigned to input speech signals by preliminarily clustering the environments based on noise features. In evaluations, parameter values determined by our method outperformed one adjusted by a human expert.

  • Testing the Usability and Accessibility of Smart TV Applications Using an
           Automated Model-Based Approach
    • Authors: Miroslav Bures;Miroslav Macik;Bestoun S. Ahmed;Vaclav Rechtberger;Pavel Slavik;
      Pages: 134 - 143
      Abstract: As the popularity of Smart Televisions (TVs) and interactive Smart TV applications (apps) has recently grown, the usability of these apps has become an important quality characteristic. Previous studies examined Smart TV apps from a usability perspective. However, these methods are mainly manual, and the potential of automated model-based testing methods for usability testing purposes has not yet been fully explored. In this article, we propose an approach to test the usability of Smart TV apps based on the automated generation of a Smart TV user interaction model from an existing app by a specialized automated crawler. By means of this model, defined user tasks in the Smart TV app can be evaluated automatically in terms of their feasibility and estimated user effort, which reflects the usability of the analyzed app. This analysis can be applied in the context of regular users and users with various specific needs. The findings from this model-based automated analysis approach can be used to optimize the user interface of a Smart TV app to increase its usability, accessibility, and quality.

  • HSAJAYA: An Improved Optimization Scheme for Consumer Surveillance Video
           Synopsis Generation
    • Authors: Subhankar Ghatak;Suvendu Rup;Banshidhar Majhi;M. N. S. Swamy;
      Pages: 144 - 152
      Abstract: Video Surveillance is an active area of research and provides promising security measures for consumer applications. To ease consumer surveillance investigations, Video Synopsis (VS) serves as a powerful tool to assess hours of video in a shorter retro of time by projecting multiple objects concurrently. The optimization module in VS framework is considered to be a key module, yet to date, only traditional optimization techniques have been addressed for energy minimization. Amongst these, simulated annealing (SA) has been broadly employed to produce global optimal solution without getting trapped in local minima. However, the convergence time of SA is quite high as the next state is chosen randomly to achieve real-time performance. This article presents an improved energy minimization scheme using hybridization of SA and JAYA algorithm to achieve global optimal solution with faster convergence rate. The weights associated with the energy function are computed using analytic hierarchy process (AHP) instead of heuristic selection. From experimental evaluations and analysis, it is seen that the proposed scheme exhibits superior performance to minimize the overall energy cost with lesser computational time. The proposed scheme has a potential to quickly review consumer surveillance video data in a smart and efficient way.

  • Tone-Mapped Image Quality Assessment for Electronics Displays by Combining
           Luminance Partition and Colorfulness Index
    • Authors: Mingxing Jiang;Liquan Shen;Linru Zheng;Min Zhao;Xuhao Jiang;
      Pages: 153 - 162
      Abstract: Tone mapping operators (TMOs) reproduce the high dynamic range (HDR) images on low dynamic range (LDR) consumer electronics devices such as monitors or printers. To accurately measure and compare the performance of different TMOs, this article proposes a tone-mapped images (TMIs) luminance partition model and corresponding quality measure. First, each tone-mapped (TM) image is segmented into highlight region (HR), dark region (DR) and midtone region (MR) based on luminance partition. Second, local entropies and contrast features are extracted in the HR and DR, and color-based features are captured in the MR. Meanwhile, the gray-level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) and Canny operator are utilized to measure the microstructural distortions and halo effects, respectively. Finally, all extracted features are combined and trained together with subjective ratings to form a regression model using support vector regression (SVR). Experimental results show that the proposed method outperforms the state-of-the-art no-reference (NR) methods. Specifically, the spearman correlation coefficients (SRCC) values of our method reach 0.83 and 0.76 on the tone-mapped image database (TMID) and the ESPL-LIVE HDR database, respectively.

  • Enhanced Security of DSP Circuits Using Multi-Key Based Structural
           Obfuscation and Physical-Level Watermarking for Consumer Electronics
    • Authors: Anirban Sengupta;Mahendra Rathor;
      Pages: 163 - 172
      Abstract: Security of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) based Intellectual Property (IP) core is very important for the overall security and reliability of Consumer Electronics (CE) systems. These DSP based IP cores are highly vulnerable to threats such as reverse engineering (RE) leading to Trojan insertion, counterfeiting and cloning. Thus developing robust defense mechanisms is highly significant for these DSP circuits used in CE systems, especially to thwart the aforesaid threats. This article presents for the first time a double line of defense mechanism using robust multi-key based structural obfuscation integrated with tamper-tolerant physical level watermarking to counter such hardware threats. The proposed approach introduces novel key-driven partitioning based obfuscation and key-driven folding knob based obfuscation, along with other key-driven transformation based obfuscations. Additionally, the proposed approach presents novel multi-variable signature encoding based physical-level watermarking on key-based structurally obfuscated DSP circuits. The presented double line of defense incurs zero overhead as well yields high tamper tolerance during hardware watermarking. The proposed approach yields stronger strength of obfuscation, lower probability of co-incidence and larger key-space at low design cost against attacks.

  • An Event-Driven Convolutional Neural Architecture for Non-Intrusive Load
           Monitoring of Residential Appliance
    • Authors: Dongsheng Yang;Xiaoting Gao;Liang Kong;Yongheng Pang;Bowen Zhou;
      Pages: 173 - 182
      Abstract: Nowadays, the advancement of non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) is hastened by the everincreasing requirements for smart power utilization and demand side management. Thus, an intelligent event-driven non-intrusive load monitoring method based on convolutional neural network (CNN) is proposed in this article to profile residential consumer behavior, which focused on limited applicability and low recognition accuracy of existing NILM techniques. The deep convolutional neural architecture improves the performance of load monitoring procedure, and extends its application range to monitoring process in terms of various and combined characteristics. Meanwhile, the event-driven procedure is conducted to find the start-stop time and state change of the appliance accurately, including zero-cross detection, current similarity detection, threshold evaluation, and event current acquisition. Subsequently, the current-to-image conversion is carried out to represent the characteristics of residential appliance as the input of CNN. And the convolutional neural architecture is proposed to identify the power consumption load and its working condition. Selected experimental results are performed that the average recognition accuracy is over 93%, which demonstrates the effectiveness and superiority of the proposed methodology for home energy management.

  • Anomaly Detection in Smart Home Operation From User Behaviors and Home
    • Authors: Masaaki Yamauchi;Yuichi Ohsita;Masayuki Murata;Kensuke Ueda;Yoshiaki Kato;
      Pages: 183 - 192
      Abstract: As several home appliances, such as air conditioners, heaters, and refrigerators, were connecting to the Internet, they became targets of cyberattacks, which cause serious problems such as compromising safety and even harming users. We have proposed a method to detect such attacks based on user behavior. This method models user behavior as sequences of user events including operation of home IoT (Internet of Things) devices and other monitored activities. Considering users behave depending on the condition of the home such as time and temperature, our method learns event sequences for each condition. To mitigate the impact of events of other users in the home included in the monitored sequence, our method generates multiple event sequences by removing some events and learning the frequently observed sequences. For evaluation, we constructed an experimental network of home IoT devices and recorded time data for four users entering/leaving a room and operating devices. We obtained detection ratios exceeding 90% for anomalous operations with less than 10% of misdetections when our method observed event sequences related to the operation. In this article, we also discuss the effectiveness of our method by comparing with a method learning users' behavior by Hidden Markov Models.

  • WPA: Write Pattern Aware Hybrid Disk Buffer Management for Improving
           Lifespan of NAND Flash Memory
    • Authors: Jun-Hyeong Choi;Kyung Min Kim;Jong Wook Kwak;
      Pages: 193 - 202
      Abstract: Recently, consumer electronics devices have started adopting NAND flash memories as their storage units. NAND flash memories are suitable as portable consumer device storages, as they have several advantages such as non-volatility, high density and low power consumption. However, flash memories are difficult to be used directly as storages in consumer devices because of a limited lifespan, which is one of the major drawbacks of NAND flash memory. Therefore, researchers have investigated ways for improving the lifespan of flash memories. In this article, we propose a hybrid disk buffer management policy, which is called the write pattern aware hybrid disk buffer management policy (WPA). The key advantage of WPA is the reduction of write access to the flash-based storage, and this is possible because WPA analyzes the write access pattern that occurred through our pattern aware migration priority by LRU (PaMP-LRU) algorithm and a page eviction list (PEL). We compared our proposed policy with existing hybrid disk buffer policies to evaluate the performance. Experimental results show that under conditions of write-intensive workloads, the performance of WPA is found to be higher than that of other disk buffer policies. In particular, the improvement of WPA hit ratio is 87.6% on average, and WPA reduces block erase counts in flash storage 38.2% on average, and up to 66.8%, resulting in improving the lifespan of NAND flash memory, compared to other disk buffer management policies.
