An intensive implementation of Information and Communication Technologies is highly required for greater beneficiary in agriculture. To achieve this in a sustainable way, implementation of ICT-based technology in precision farming at the earliest is required. More specifically, Indian farming requires efficient usage of fertilizer recommendations for each crop type at time intervals during the harvesting period. India needs to go mature in taking agriculture technology a bit further by using technologies like Multi-model decision support system, GPS (Global Positioning System), GIS (Geographic Information System) Cloud, Spatial data analytics, and various other technological wonders. This paper proposes a best available edge cutting and benefiting ICT initiatives by using cloud-based web GIS, Mobile, and Kiosk in fertilizer recommendations for precision farming and primarily aiming at the soil health in Indian agriculture. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2017.

In today's globalization, the success of an industry is dependent on cost effective supply chain management under various markets, logistics and production uncertainties. Uncertainties in the supply chain usually decrease profit, i.e. increase total supply chain cost. Demand uncertainty and constraints posed by the every echelon are important factors to be considered in the supply chain design operations. Optimization is no longer a luxury but has become the order of the day. This paper specifically deals with the modeling and optimization of a three echelon supply chain network using the particle swarm optimization/intelligence algorithms. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

This paper considers simultaneous optimization of strategic design and distribution decisions for three-echelon supply chain architecture consisting of following three players; suppliers, production plants, and distribution centers (DCs). The key design decisions considered are: the number and location of plants in the system, the flow of raw materials from suppliers to plants, the quantity of products to be shipped from plants to distribution centers, so as to minimize the combined facility location, production, inventory, and shipment costs and maximize fill rate. To achieve this, three-echelon network model is mathematically represented and solved using swarm intelligence based Multi-objective Hybrid Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm (MOHPSO). This heuristic incorporates non-dominated sorting (NDS) procedure to achieve bi-objective optimization of two conflicting objectives. The applicability of proposed optimization algorithm was then tested by applying it to standard test problems found in literature. On achieving comparable results, the approach was applied to actual data of a pump manufacturing industry. The results show that the proposed solution approach performs efficiently. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The absorption and fluorescence spectra of 6,7,8,9-tetrahydro-6,8,9- trimethyl-4-(trifluoro methyl)-2H-pyrano[2,3-b][1,8]naphthyridin-2-one (LD-489) and 1,2,3,8-tetrahydro-1,2,3,3,8-pentamethyl-5-(trifluoromethyl)-7H-pyrrolo[3,2- g]quinolin-7-one (LD-473) have been recorded at room temperature in different solvents and 1,4-dioxane-acetonitrile solvent mixtures. The UV-Visible absorption spectra are less sensitive to solvent polarity than the corresponding fluorescence spectra in both the dyes which show pronounced solvatochromic effect. The effects of solvents upon the spectral properties are analyzed using Lippert-Mataga polarity function, Richardts microscopic solvent polarity parameter and Catalán's multiple linear regression approach. Both general solute-solvent interactions and specific interactions are operative in these systems. The solvatochromic correlations are used to estimate excited state dipole moments using experimentally determined ground state dipole moments. The excited state dipole moment for both the dyes are found to be larger than their corresponding ground state dipole moment and is interpreted based on their resonance structures. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

In this study, conventional materials were used to prepare ultra-high strength mortars (UHSMs) and their stress-strain (σ-ε) characteristics in compression were investigated both experimentally and analytically. The effect of micro-fiber addition on the peak stress, peak strain, modulus of elasticity and energy absorption were then studied. Test results suggested that heat-treated UHSMs showed significantly higher strengths than non-heat-treated UHSMs. The micro-fiber addition significantly improved all the characteristics of UHSM. Both linear and non-linear correlations existed between the reinforcement indices of fibers and σ-ε characteristics of UHSM. The analytical modeling of the σ-ε curve showed good correlation with the experimental data. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

A salt base exothermic reaction process has been employed to produce aluminum alloy 2014 matrix-TiB2 composites using an exothermic reaction process at 850°C using K2TiF6 and KBF4 salts. The period of exothermic reaction was varied from a minimum of 15min to a maximum of 45min to investigate the relationship between the degree of reaction and the growth behavior of TiB2 formed. These have been compared with commercially available aluminum alloy 2014 material. Structural and wear properties have been measured. These show that TiB2 is extremely effective in enhancing wear properties in addition to significantly reducing the coefficient of friction. The microstructure and phase composition of the materials obtained were studied using X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Very fine ceramic particles were obtained in the aluminum alloy matrix. © 2011.

With the increasing demand for real time applications in the Wireless Senor Network (WSN), real time critical events anticipate an efficient quality-of-service (QoS) based routing for data delivery from the network infrastructure. Designing such QoS based routing protocol to meet the reliability and delay guarantee of critical events while preserving the energy efficiency is a challenging task. Considerable research has been focused on developing robust energy efficient QoS based routing protocols. In this paper, we present the state of the research by summarizing the work on QoS based routing protocols that has already been published and by highlighting the QoS issues that are being addressed. The performance comparison of QoS based routing protocols such as SAR, MMSPEED, MCMP, MCBR, and EQSR has also been analyzed using ns-2 for various parameters. © 2012 KIPS.


This paper suggests an Intelligent Control Algorithm for optimizing the charge and discharge of a battery pack used in a hybrid/electric vehicle. With precision control of voltage and current levels in secondary batteries, high performance and greater battery life can be achieved and the problems of overcharging and over discharging in batteries can be avoided. It uses cell isolation system, which controls the number of cells required specifically for an instantaneous load condition, thus reducing the overall internal resistance of battery pack, hence reduces losses due to heating. © 2015 IEEE.

Content based image retrieval (CBIR) is a promising way to address image retrieval based on the visual features of an image like color, texture and shape. Every visual feature will address a specific property of the image, so the state of the art focuses on combination of multiple visual features for content based image retrieval. In this paper we have devised a content based image retrieval system based on the combination of local and global features. The local features used are Bidirectional Empirical Mode Decomposition (BEMD) technique for edge detection and Harris corner detector to detect the corner points of an image. The global feature used is HSV colorfeature. For the experimental purpose the COIL-100 database has been used. The result show significant improvement in the retrieval accuracy when compared to the existing systems. © 2014 IEEE.
