    Web service discovery is a mechanism which facilitates an access to the Web service descriptions. UDDI facilitates the discovery based on the service functionality through keyword and category matching. Such discovery techniques do not consider the semantics and user context as they are too syntactic in nature. In this paper, we propose a well formed functional semantics to describe an operation o... View full abstract»

    A parallel genetic algorithm (PGA) based scheme for detection of cracks in images is proposed. The proposed segmentation scheme is a feature based one and the optimum threshold is determined from the the feature histogram. Parallel genetic algorithm (PGA) based clustering is proposed to detect two peaks and thereafter the optimal threshold is determined by minimum mean square error (MMSE) based st...

    In this paper, a stable neural network based observer for twin rotor multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) system is proposed. The twin rotor MIMO system (TRMS) is a highly nonlinear system. First, a simple local state observer for TRMS is presented. The efficiency of this observer will depend on the accuracy of the model. Then, a neural network - based observer is proposed. This observer can be applied... View full abstract»

    In this paper a portable wireless data logging system for temperature monitoring in real time process dynamics. Process variables (like temperature, pressure, flow, level) vary with time in certain applications and these variations should be recorded so that a control action can take place at a defined set point. This paper proposes a 8-bit embedded platform for a temperature sensor node having a ... View full abstract»

    Underwater images suffer from various factors like non-uniform lightning, low contrast, color gets diminished, blurring etc. There are different algorithms to reduce underwater perturbations and improve the quality of the image. The quality of the image varies with the algorithm used. This paper considers three main such algorithms namely Homomorphic filtering, Anisotropic filtering and Autocontra... View full abstract»

    The shortest path problem is the problem of finding a path between two vertices (or nodes) such that the sum of the weights of its constituent edges is minimized. An example is finding the quickest way to get from one location to another on a road map; In this case, the vertices represent locations and the edges represent segments of road and are weighted by the time needed to travel that segment....

    Many organizations collect information about customers which are used to support various business related task. The detail of the customers and their behavior is stored in the database. Here we propose a method of using incremental updating technique to mine direct association rules Inter & Intra transactions. Cluster analysis is performed to verify the associated objects fall in nominal clust... View full abstract»

    The paper analyzes the performance of parallel apriori algorithm on heterogeneous nodes with different datasets and over n processors on a commodity cluster of machines. In the apriori algorithm all processes need to synchronize after every pass. If any process is assigned more load than other processes in the system, the slowest process will dictate the speed of the program. It is therefore impor... View full abstract»
