  • A Novel Algorithmic Approach for Efficient Realization of 2-D-DCT
           Architecture for HEVC
    • Authors: Ashish Singhadia;Pratik Bante;Indrajit Chakrabarti;
      Pages: 264 - 273
      Abstract: Low power realization of high efficiency video coding (HEVC) standard, which has found widespread application in mobile devices, tablets, and high-definition televisions, calls for an efficient approximation of discrete cosine transform (DCT) technique. In this paper, a novel algorithm is proposed to determine the minimum number of low-frequency DCT coefficients required for transform and quantization block in HEVC. Moreover, it introduces hardware efficient 1-D architectures for 4, 8, 16, and 32-point DCT, that make use of the proposed algorithm and conform to the HEVC standard. When these architectures are extended to the HEVC test model (HM), it leads to a minor reduction of PSNR (

  • A 2-D Multiple Transform Processor for the Versatile Video Coding Standard
    • Authors: Matías J. Garrido;Fernando Pescador;M. Chavarrías;P. J. Lobo;Cesar Sanz;
      Pages: 274 - 283
      Abstract: Versatile video coding (VVC) will be the next generation video coding standard, which is expected to replace HEVC in CE devices, such as tablets, smartphones, and TV sets beyond 2020. The new standard will still be based on transform, quantization, and entropy coding, but a multiple transform selection scheme has been proposed, involving three different types of 2-D Discrete Sine/Cosine transforms (DCT-II, DCT-VIII, and DST-VII), and the transform unit sizes range from 4×4 to 64×64. To handle the computational complexity of these algorithms, it is useful to explore hardware solutions that could be employed as accelerators. In this paper, a high performance architecture to implement the aforementioned 2-D transform types for 4×4, 8×8, 16×16, and 32×32 sizes is proposed. The design has been synthesized for low, medium, and high-end FPGA chips, being able to process up to 23 fps@3840×2160 for 32×32 transform sizes and up to 86 fps@3840×2160 for pictures containing an even distribution of the four block sizes. Moreover, these performance results have been obtained with a moderate consumption of hardware resources.

  • Daylight-Artificial Light Integrated Scheme Based on Digital Camera and
           Wireless Networked Sensing-Actuation System
    • Authors: Susan G. Varghese;Ciji Pearl Kurian;Vadakekkara Itty George;T. S. Sudheer Kumar;
      Pages: 284 - 292
      Abstract: Automated lighting can achieve significant energy savings. A daylight-artificial light integrated system with the camera as the sensor and wireless sensor actuator networked (WSAN) system is presented here. The workplane luminance, the window luminance, and the discomfort glare position of the user are extracted from the image of the workspace captured by the camera. The findings of this paper are the usage of the camera as luminance meter and how this information is used in the control of LED dimming based on consumer comfort. A novel camera-based fuzzy controller for window blind, considering visual, and thermal comfort, is designed, based on the parameters extracted from the image, to optimize the illuminance and uniformity for a test space. The control system integrates luminaire and window blind control. The model-based design approach provides visual and thermal comfort for the consumer without compromising on energy consumption. The real time implementation of the shading and lighting integrated model, with daylight adaptation and the wireless networked sensor-actuation system is shown in this paper. The performance of the wireless networked lighting scheme is analyzed, by evaluating the energy consumption of the nodes in idle, transmit, and receive mode.

  • GazeVisual: A Practical Software Tool and Web Application for Performance
           Evaluation of Eye Tracking Systems
    • Authors: Anuradha Kar;Peter Corcoran;
      Pages: 293 - 302
      Abstract: The concept and functionalities of a software tool developed for in depth performance evaluation of eye gaze estimation systems is presented. The software, GazeVisual has capabilities for quantitative, statistical, and visual analysis of eye gaze data as well as generation of static and dynamic visual stimuli for sample gaze data collection. This is a first of its kind cross-platform tool for gaze data analysis and evaluation. This software is made freely available to the eye gaze research and development community to provide a common framework for estimating the quality and reliability of data from eye tracking systems, especially those implemented in consumer electronics (CE) applications. The feasibility of using this software is tested through case studies which show that the software can handle eye gaze datasets obtained from several different consumer grade eye trackers. GazeVisual operates consistently, irrespective of the platform, algorithm or hardware of the eye trackers. In addition, the GazeVisual software capabilities are also made accessible via a Web-based application enabling performance evaluation of eye tracker data over a cloud-based platform.

  • Detail-Preserving Underexposed Image Enhancement via Optimal Weighted
           Multi-Exposure Fusion
    • Authors: Shiguang Liu;Yu Zhang;
      Pages: 303 - 311
      Abstract: Photographs taken by mobile device usually suffer from loss of details and low visual attraction due to the poor light condition. The enhancement of the underexposed image can effectively solve this problem. However, previous work may inevitably wash out some weak edges and lose details when handling several underexposed images. To deal with these problems, this paper presents a detail-preserving underexposed image enhancement method based on a new optimal weighted multi-exposure fusion mechanism. Providing an input underexposed image, we propose a novel multi-exposure image enhancement method which can generate a multi-exposure image sequence. However, none of these images are good enough, as images with high exposure have good brightness and color information, whereas sharp details are better preserved in the images with lower exposure. In order to preserve details and enhance the blurred edges, we propose to solve an energy function to compute the optimal weight of the three measurements: 1) local contrast; 2) saturation; and 3) exposedness. Then a weighted multi-exposed fusion method is used to generate the final image. Since the proposed approach is computationally light-weight, it is possible to implement it on mobile devices, such as smart phones and compact cameras. Various experiment results validate our new method.

  • Reducing Channel Change Time by System Architecture Changes in DVB-S/C/T
           Set Top Boxes
    • Authors: Nemanja Fimic;Ilija Basicevic;Nikola Teslic;
      Pages: 312 - 321
      Abstract: This paper presents a software architecture that supports fast channel change in digital video broadcasting-satellite/cable/terrestrial (DVB-S/C/T) set top boxes (STBs). Long channel zapping time issue has first been addressed in the context of IPTV STBs, where it presented an obstacle for successful commercialization of the IPTV. In DVB-S/C/T, the channel zapping time has not been in the focus so much, but with the development of tuners and with the appearance of STB boards with more tuners and decoders, the conditions have been met for its further reduction. The aim is to improve the user's quality of experience. The properties of our architecture have been discussed both with respect to resource management and to efficient processing of callbacks and notifications. The experimental results show the reduction of channel zapping time from about 2.6 s to less than 700 ms on the average.

  • Design and Implementation of Display Stream Compression Decoder With Line
           Buffer Optimization
    • Authors: Seon Wook Kim;Sewon Park;Jaeyung Jun;Youngsun Han;
      Pages: 322 - 328
      Abstract: In recent years, new emerging display-based consumer products, such as augmented and virtual reality headsets and automotive video systems have required higher communication bandwidth due to higher bits per pixel and refresh rates. Thus, many video compression techniques have been actively studied to support the bandwidth in a limited communication environment, and the video electronics standard association (VESA) has standardized a display stream compression (DSC) that provides visually lossless video quality while preserving low power consumption and implementation cost. In this paper, we describe the detailed design of the DSC decoder and optimize a line buffer size that occupies most of the decoder's resources in terms of power and area consumption. So our optimization method can save many resources used by the DSC decoder. The proposed decoder was functionally verified on an FPGA-based platform and synthesized with a 65 nm standard cell library. The performance analysis showed that the optimized decoder used only 62 mW for decoding per frame of FHD video by reducing power consumption by 37.0% and area by 39.9% than the original design; thus, our technology would become an attractive solution for developers of the emerging consumer products.

  • Prototype of Home Monitoring Device Using Internet of Things and River
           Formation Dynamics-Based Multi-Hop Routing Protocol (RFDHM)
    • Authors: Koppala Guravaiah;R. Leela Velusamy;
      Pages: 329 - 338
      Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are an emerging technology to assist Internet of Things (IoT)-related applications. Applications, such as automated power control, monitoring of houses to prevent from theft, etc., can be implemented using IoT. In this paper, one such application is considered and WSN-based IoT system is proposed. The proposed system uses three passive infrared (PIR) motion sensors connected to a camera to capture the images of person entering or leaving the house. The captured images are communicated to the server for storing and further processing. This information is also used to switch OFF or ON power appliances, such as fan, lights, etc., thereby reducing power consumption. The forwarding of information, such as number of persons present in the room and the images of the persons entering or leaving the house is done using river formation dynamics-based multi-hop routing protocol (RFDMRP). A prototype of the proposed system is developed, installed, and tested.

  • Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring and Classification of Activities of Daily
           Living Using Residential Smart Meter Data
    • Authors: Michael A. Devlin;Barry P. Hayes;
      Pages: 339 - 348
      Abstract: This paper develops an approach for household appliance identification and classification of household activities of daily living (ADLs) using residential smart meter data. The process of household appliance identification, i.e., decomposing a mains electricity measurement into each of its constituent individual appliances, is a very challenging classification problem. Recent advances have made deep learning a dominant approach for classification in fields, such as image processing and speech recognition. This paper presents a deep learning approach based on multilayer, feedforward neural networks that can identify common household electrical appliances from a typical household smart meter measurement. The performance of this approach is tested and validated using publicly available smart meter data sets. The identified appliances are then mapped to household activities, or ADLs. The resulting ADL classifier can provide insights into the behavior of the household occupants, which has a number of applications in the energy domain and in other fields.

  • Music Recommendation System Using Human Activity Recognition From
           Accelerometer Data
    • Authors: Hyoung-Gook Kim;Gee Yeun Kim;Jin Young Kim;
      Pages: 349 - 358
      Abstract: Music listening is a very personal and situational behavior for modern people who always carry smartphones in everyday life. Therefore, contextual information, such as user's current activity and mood state could be used to greatly improve music recommendations. In this paper, we develop a smartphone-based mobile system that includes two core modules for recognizing human activities and then accordingly recommending music. In the proposed method, a deep residual bidirectional gated recurrent neural network is applied to obtain high activity recognition accuracy from accelerometer signals on the smartphone. In order to improve the performance of tempo-oriented music classification, an ensemble of dynamic classification using a long-term modulation spectrum and sequence classification using a short-term spectrogram is used. Music recommendation is performed using the relationship between the recognized human activities and the music files indexed by tempo-oriented music classification that reflects user preference models in order to achieve high user satisfaction. The results of comprehensive experiments on real data confirm the accuracy of the proposed activity-aware music recommendation framework.

  • Neuro-Detect: A Machine Learning-Based Fast and Accurate Seizure Detection
           System in the IoMT
    • Authors: Md Abu Sayeed;Saraju P. Mohanty;Elias Kougianos;Hitten P. Zaveri;
      Pages: 359 - 368
      Abstract: Epilepsy, which is characterized by recurrent spontaneous seizures, has a considerably negative impact on both the quality and the expectancy of life of the patient. Approximately 3.4 million individuals in the USA and up to 1% of the world population is afflicted by epilepsy. This necessitates the real-time detection of seizures which can be done by the use of an Internet of Things (IoT) framework for smart healthcare. In this paper, we propose an electroencephalogram (EEG)-based seizure detection system in the IoT framework which uses the discrete wavelet transform (DWT), Hjorth parameters (HPs), statistical features, and a machine learning classifier. Seizure detection is done in two stages. In the first stage, EEG signals are decomposed by the DWT into sub-bands and features (activity, signal complexity, and standard deviation) were extracted from each of these sub-bands. In the second stage, a deep neural network (DNN) classifier is used to classify the EEG data. A prototype of the proposed neuro-detect was implemented using the hardware-in-the-loop approach. The results demonstrate a significant difference in HP values between interictal and ictal EEG with ictal EEG being less complex than interictal EEG. In this approach, we report an accuracy of 100% for a classification of normal versus ictal EEG and 98.6% for normal and interictal versus ictal EEG.

  • Collecting Health Lifelog Data From Smartwatch Users in a
           Privacy-Preserving Manner
    • Authors: Jong Wook Kim;Jong Hyun Lim;Su Mee Moon;Beakcheol Jang;
      Pages: 369 - 378
      Abstract: With the development of easily wearable devices for humans, monitoring, and collecting lifelog data related to personal health status is easier than ever before. The advances in such wearable devices allow healthcare service providers to easily collect a vast amount of health lifelogs from diverse users for the purpose of data analysis. However, collecting health information of individual users indiscriminately may lead to serious privacy issues, because health lifelog data usually contain sensitive information. Thus, in this paper, we develop methods capable of collecting sensitive health lifelogs from a smartwatch, which is the most popular wearable device, while protecting the data privacy of smartwatch users. Experimental results show that the proposed approach can achieve an effective tradeoff between the degree of privacy protection and the accuracy in aggregate statistics. A correlation coefficient with an absolute value ranging from 0.808 to 0.945 between the degree of privacy protection and the accuracy in aggregate statistics can be accomplished using the proposed methods.

  • eSeiz: An Edge-Device for Accurate Seizure Detection for Smart Healthcare
    • Authors: Md. Abu Sayeed;Saraju P. Mohanty;Elias Kougianos;Hitten P. Zaveri;
      Pages: 379 - 387
      Abstract: Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders affecting a significant portion of the world's population and approximately 2.5 million people in the United States. Important biomedical research effort is focused on the development of energy efficient devices for the real-time detection of seizures. In this paper, we propose an Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)-based automated seizure detection system which will detect a seizure from electroencephalography (EEG) signals using a voltage level detector (VLD) and a signal rejection algorithm (SRA). The proposed system analyzes neural signals continuously and extracts the hyper-synchronous pulses for the detection of seizure onset. Within a time frame, if the number of pulses exceeds a predefined threshold value, a seizure is declared. The SRA reduces false detections, which in turn enhances the accuracy of the seizure detector. The design was validated using system-level simulations and consumer electronics proof of concept. The proposed seizure detector reports a sensitivity of 96.9% and specificity of 97.5%. The use of minimal circuitry can lead to reduction of power consumption compared to many contemporary approaches. The proposed approach can be generalized to other sensor modalities and the use of wearable or implantable solutions, or a combination of the two.

  • PMsec: Physical Unclonable Function-Based Robust and Lightweight
           Authentication in the Internet of Medical Things
    • Authors: Venkata P. Yanambaka;Saraju P. Mohanty;Elias Kougianos;Deepak Puthal;
      Pages: 388 - 397
      Abstract: Various commercial off-the-shelf components are available for the development of communication-enabled consumer electronics devices. This opens new doors to attackers who can take advantage of various vulnerabilities to attack the entire network and compromise the integrity of the system and the environment. If a malicious device enters the environment and the attacker gains access to the server or transmits malicious data to the server or cloud, the entire network can be jeopardized. To avoid such cases, this paper presents a device authentication scheme which uses physical unclonable functions (PUFs) and is suitable for the Internet-of-Medical-Things (IoMT). The main advantage of this authentication scheme is that no data related to the IoMT devices are stored in server memory. The time taken to authenticate the devices completely was 1.2 s to 1.5 s. A hybrid oscillator arbiter physical unclonable function was used for validation of the proposed authentication scheme. From the PUF module used during experimental validation, the number of keys that could be potentially used for the authentication protocol from each design is approximately 240. The proposed authentication scheme increases the robustness of the design while being lightweight to be deployed in various designs and supports scalability.

  • Embedding Digital Signature Using Encrypted-Hashing for Protection of DSP
           Cores in CE
    • Authors: Anirban Sengupta;E. Ranjith Kumar;N. Prajwal Chandra;
      Pages: 398 - 407
      Abstract: Reusable intellectual property (IP) cores from signal processing and multimedia form an integral part of consumer electronics (CE) systems. However, owing to the value it represents, it needs protection against important threats, such as piracy and illegal claim of ownership. This paper presents a novel multi-level encoding and encrypted-hash-based digital signature for protection of complex reusable IP core used in CE systems. For the first time in the literature, a digital signature-based IP core protection is proposed for digital signal processing (DSP) kernels. The proposed methodology is capable of encoding a DSP kernel application, followed by creating a digest of the encoded application to finally form a digital signature using RSA, which is subsequently implanted into the same design during architectural synthesis. The proposed approach on DSP benchmarks is capable of achieving higher robustness in terms of lower probability of coincidence - indicating stronger proof of authorship. The proposed approach achieves stronger robustness (on average by ~24.8%) as well as requires lesser storage hardware (on average reduction of ~14%) compared to similar prior work.

  • High Speed and Low Area Complexity Extended Euclidean Inversion Over
           Binary Fields
    • Authors: Ibrahim Hazmi;Fayez Gebali;Atef Ibrahim;
      Pages: 408 - 417
      Abstract: Finite field arithmetic is the building block of public-key cryptographic schemes, which are used widely for security and privacy of consumer electronics hardware and software systems. Since inversion is the most expensive finite field arithmetic operation, this paper proposes a novel, fast, and compact inverter over binary fields based on the traditional extended Euclidean algorithm (EEA). The proposed design outperforms the reported inverters in terms of area and speed. A modified EEA algorithm is presented and the design space of inversion over GF(2m) is explored in order to allow for parallelism and concurrency, resolving the disturbing issues of variables alignment, before and during each inversion iteration. Polynomial division and multiplication are revisited, in order to derive their iterative equations, which are suitable for systolic array implementation. Then, a concurrent divider/multiplier is developed using a systematic methodology, while the resulting systolic architecture is utilized to build the EEA-based inverter. Finally, the complexity of the proposed design is analyzed and compared with efficient inverters in the literature, showing the lowest area-time complexity.

  • A Flash-Based SSD Cache Management Scheme for High Performance Home Cloud
    • Authors: Jung Kyu Park;Yunjung Seo;Jaeho Kim;
      Pages: 418 - 425
      Abstract: In the home cloud environment, storage performance is the most important factors affecting the user experience. In order to improve storage performance, we introduce a technique for managing flash-based storage devices as a cache. Although there are various studies on the use of flash caches, we focus on managing read requests that take into account flash memory characteristics and destaging methods from solid state drive cache to hard disk drives (HDDs) to improve performance. In this paper, we propose a scheme for managing flash-based solid state cache (SSC) called hybrid unit 2level-least recently used to improve input/output performance of HDD-based storage. Through the proposed scheme, cache hit ratio is increased and the number of disk access is reduced by keeping frequently accessed pages in SSC. In addition, the disk head movement is reduced when pages are destaged to disk by grouping write requested pages with adjacent pages. The number of cached pages is dynamically adjusted according to the ratio of read and write requests to improve performance on various workloads. For performance evaluation, we implemented the proposed scheme in a trace-based simulator. Performance evaluation shows up to 51% reduction in execution time compared to existing representative schemes.

  • URS: User-Based Resource Scheduling for Multi-User Surface Computing
    • Authors: Jonggyu Park;Young Ik Eom;
      Pages: 426 - 433
      Abstract: Multi-user surface computing systems are promising for the next generation consumer electronics devices due to their convenience and excellent usability. However, conventional resource scheduling schemes can cause severe performance issues in surface computing systems, especially when they are adopted in multi-user environments, because they do not consider the characteristics of multi-user surface computing systems. In this paper, we propose an efficient user-based resource scheduling scheme for multi-user surface computing systems, called URS. URS provides three different features to effectively support multi-user surface computing systems. First, URS distributes system resources to users, according to their real-world priorities, rather than processes or tasks. Second, URS provides performance isolation among multiple users to prevent resource monopoly by a single user. Finally, URS prioritizes a foreground application of each user via retaining pages used by the application in the page cache, in order to enhance multi-user experience. Our experimental results confirm that URS effectively allocates system resources to multiple users by providing the aforementioned three features.
