This paper focuses on to develop a cognitive architecture which demonstrates a broad range of cognitive issues such as decision-making, learning, problem solving, planning, using the concepts of swarm intelligence. To investigate the behavior of swarm intelligent agents in ambient environment with respect to motivation, coordination and performance. To check how performance of agents in a group varies with proper motivation and coordination. Since group of agents are performing together the intelligence performance exhibiting from the group is always greater than individual intelligence performance. The question is, what exactly is happening in these groups that their performance is superior to the individuals? With better group members, performance of the group will be better. What makes the individual member better? This research work provides the solution to the stated problem by developing the cognitive architecture and found that the actual dependents are type of individuals in a group and type of the task performed by the agents. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2017.

Education for a person plays an anchor role in shaping an individual’s career. In order to achieve success in the academic path, care should be taken in choosing an appropriate course for the learners. This research work is based on the framework to design a course advisory system in an efficient way. The design approach is based on overlapping of learning analytics, academic analytics, and personalized systems. This approach provides an efficient way to build course advisory system. Also, mapping of course advisory systems into the reference model of learning analytics is discussed in this paper. Course advisory system is considered as enhanced personalized system. The challenges involved in the implementation of course advisory system is also elaborated in this paper. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2017.

Kokum drink formulations were evaluated for their acceptability by fuzzy logic and a new method based on simple calculations. Both the methods showed that the sample containing sugar, cumin, cardamom, and roasted salt at 2, 0.2, 0.2, and 1 g/100 ml juice, respectively, was more acceptable. Quality attributes in general showed under ‘satisfactory’ in both the methods. When similarity values for the quality attributes of kokum samples 1 to 4 were calculated, the results from both the methods were in agreement with each other. The new method is advantageous since it is simple and gave results similar to that of fuzzy logic. © 2017 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC

India's public funded earth observation program over the decades had evolved into a multi dimensional programme aiming to fulfil widely diverse application objectives. Remote Sensing Data Policy was first adopted by the Government of India in the year2000 and subsequently revised in 2011. These policies placed strong emphasis on government funding of space infrastructure and also several downstream development activities relating to applications. In recent decade, however commercial earth observation systems made rapid strides in providing access to high quality data as well as information to users all over the globe. Through active role of private sector, several 'New Space' initiatives have also been undertaken in different parts of the globe. In view of some unique opportunities arising in Indian market due to the transforming economic, demographic and social structure, the opportunities and challenges for commercial space had been studied. In the context of growing middle income markets, Indian private sector had also been showing increasing interest to invest into global initiatives and also explore new segments of value chain in Indian market. This has already begin to happen in the field of satellite communications and it would also extend into other areas such as earth observations and applications, which are now driven by national initiatives such as Digital India announced by the Indian Prime Minister recently and a national GIS system. The major drivers that would create burgeoning demands for space based products and services are the decision support needs arising from diverse requirements of large scale infrastructure developments and trends such as urban shift of the population, land use change, huge needs of ICT based services addressing the demands of education, health, mobility and environment sectors, robust demands for disaster warning and mitigation, national security, and natural resources management. An attempt has been made to analyse different policy paradigms. The paper will also discuss the perspectives of private industry in India on policy issues, their perceptions of market opportunities in such a rapidly transforming environment and presents a portfolio of models to derive greater economic benefits. Since government policies had invariably played a major role in triggering investment and participation by private sector in this field, an avant-garde policy and regulatory changes to attract greater private sector participation are presented in conclusion.

Substantial developments have taken place in the areas of structural health monitoring, wherein, the objective is not only to detect damage but also to determine its size and location across the structure. Often, the damaged structures do not become obsolete unless the damage is severe. Thus, it is important to mitigate the growth of damage and prevent the possibilities of a structural failure. Vibration is an important source of damage growth. Therefore, it is important to control vibrations such that the damage growth is mitigated. Supposing an effect of damage in the structure is said to be mitigated when the vibration response of the damaged structure with control is the same as the vibration response of the undamaged structure, then one of the requirements is that the closed loop eigenstructure of the damaged structure needs to match with the open loop eigenstructure of the undamaged structure. In this framework, this paper uses a linear algebraic technique to assign the undamaged eigenvalues and eigenvectors for the damaged structure with a stiffness loss using a state feedback controller. Through this technique, it is shown that the vibration control using an actuator load can help to mitigate damage growth by reducing the vibration response magnitudes at the damaged structural degrees of freedom, while these magnitudes at other nodes are allowed to increase due to the actuator loads. Vibration control in this sense for structural damage mitigation is illustrated using discrete and continuous structures. © SAGE Publications.

Considerable efforts have been made to develop biocomposites that can replace the non-biodegradable synthetic polymer-based composites. Most often, composites are made using either the matrix or reinforcement derived from renewable resources, but are still referred to as biocomposites. However, the biodegradability of such composites, especially those containing synthetic polymers as matrices, is questionable. Attempts have also been made to develop completely biodegradable composites that contain both the matrix and reinforcement from renewable and biodegradable sources. Composites containing biopolymers as matrix have shown to have good tensile and flexural properties but typically fail to have adequate resistance to moisture leading to poor performance at high humidity or aqueous conditions. Among the various biopolymer matrices used, soy-based matrices are extensively studied due to the abundant and low cost availability of coproducts. Soy proteins, soy concentrate, soy flour and soy oil obtained as coproducts of soybean processing have been studied as possible matrices for composites in their native form and also after chemical and physical modifications. Although extensively studied, information on composites containing soy-based matrices is incoherent and the suitability of the composites developed for practical applications is not clear. This review provides an overview of the literature available on composites developed using thermoplastic soy-based resins, properties of such composites and their limitations and future potential. © The Author(s) 2015.

In autonomous control operations of unmanned micro air vehicles, the trajectories are generated first for a known mission profile and then they are reconstructed online. In some cases, a fixed-gain feedback controller is used to reconstruct the trajectories. However, for pitch plane autonomous operations of small fixed wing micro air vehicles, the human-made fixed gain feedback controller is sometimes inadequate. That is, the trajectory reconstruction process demands an online control system design with adaptive feedback gains. Although trajectory generation in pitch plane is a subject by itself, this paper focuses on the online control system design procedures so that the generated trajectories for autonomous control are reconstructed. It is shown that the extended Kalman filter in state and parameter estimation framework is an excellent tool to perform the control system design. The software that accepts an output from the trajectory generation module and performs trajectory reconstruction using a set of adaptive feedback gains is referred as 'autonomous control agent'. A single input nonlinear micro air vehicle model is considered to illustrate the underlying principles of autonomous control agent with gains computed and tuned by the extended Kalman filter. Thus the human participation in micro air vehicle operation at pitch plane is minimized. © 2011 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc. All rights reserved.
