- Letter Recognition of English Language Using Basic Strokes
Nishith Kotak (201511056)
Abstract: In the recent era, perfection is an essential entity that defines the work of a person and the determination of an individual towards his work. It is the most important aspect to draft the tasks carried out and form a document that speaks the efforts of an individual. Thereby, for a perfect documented work or even for the formal written communication, person must reduce the literature mistakes i.e. spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, punctuation mark misplaced, etc. This practice of improvements like practicing the correct word spellings can be inculcated into the person from his childhood days, when he can grasp the maximum of knowledge thrown onto him.
A child is always casual for the mistakes to be corrected and thereby, as a general practice, whenever the teacher of a subject corrects the spelling of the word given in his homework, he often doesn’t bother to look into it and repeats the same mistake until he is taught the correct spelling of that word. Hence, it would be a good practice, if he/she is suggested the correct word spellings on the real time while the child is writing. This will instantaneously pinch the child regarding his wrong spelling and the child will be advised to correct it at the same time. The system must be made smart enough to recognize the word and display the correct spell of the word, just as the messaging application in our smart phone usually points out the correct spelling. Hence, a training-less system is developed that is capable of recognizing the word in the real time and make the suggestions to the child regarding the wrong word and thereby, contributes to the improved literature of a child. A sensory system is placed near the tip of the pen that detects the acceleration, direction of motion and the curl of the rotation of the pen when the user is writing on paper, and the dictionary helps in decoding the correct spelling of the word.
As a part of the rest step to this long definition, an analysis of the raw data was done and the successful calibration of this data was carried out using Kalman Filter to make the data more sensible. We have implemented an efficient algorithm for the detection of the letters of English Alphabets and based on the waveform analysis, the
features are extracted from the same. The system gives the accuracy of 89% while implementation of the basic four strokes and resulted into detection of 16 capital letters out of 26 in the English literature. The system identifies 85% of the letters successfully In order to increase the accuracy of determining the letters, the mapping algorithm have been implemented along with the stroke detection algorithm. This leads to the increase in accuracy over 97% out of the total 800 observations been carried out.
- A Remote User Authentication Scheme for Home Access
Pradip Tilala (201511045)
Abstract: Digital home security systems are becoming inevitable in modern lifestyle. For the purpose of safety, smart systems are required to be developed that themselves could recognize the legitimate visitor and only then allow him/her the access to the door. We propose a smart home access system architecture for the door lock system. This system controls the door lock via android smartphone App using WiFi as the communication protocol, WeMos D1 WiFi module embedded in the lock and the online PHP web server. With the help of cloud-based messaging service, it is easy to send a message to remote android mobile. This aspect removes the need to embed GSM module with a smart lock system. To keep track of the door status and the events like door smashing, keeping door open for a long time, we have used the accelerometer and magnetometer respectively. This system keeps itself in LAN of the home router. It avoids the access to the system from outside the LAN. The smartphone App has a password for secure access to the lock system. This system verifies the password of the user and then sends an OTP to the mobile App using cloud-based secure messaging service. Different possible scenarios have been considered to check the system’s performance in real time. Memory space consumption and the time taken by the system in use are the challenging aspects in a home access system. The security aspect of the system does not aect much to the operation time of the system. So, the system is efficient from the time perspective and easy to use by novice user as its mobile App.
- Detection and Localization of Tampering in a Digital Medical Image Using Discrete Wavelet Transform
Tushar Gadhiya (201311046)
Abstract: Use of digital images has increased tremendously in medical science as a diagnosis tool. It made investigation easier and quick. But at the same time it raises the question of authenticity of the image under scrutiny. Authenticity of the digital image has been very important in the areas like scientific research, legal proceedings, lifestyle publications, brand marketing, forensic investigations, government documents etc. With the help of powerful and easy to use image editing software like Microsoft Paint and Photoshop, it became extremely easy to tamper with a digital image for malicious objective. Digital form of the image draws attention of many researcher towards automatic diagnosis system for image analysis and enhancement. These kinds of systems use harmless image manipulation operations like brightness enhancement, gamma correction, contrast enhancement etc. which improve quality of the image. It helps in better diagnosis. So it should not be considered as a tampering. Likely and reported tampering of malicious intention may be found in medical claims, health insurances or even legal battles in which a medical problem may influence the judicial decision. Since use of digital images in medical profession still is in nascent stage, we addressed the likely-to-be-wrong-use of such input in this thesis. We propose an algorithm to enable anybody to detect if or not a tampering is done with such malicious intention. And if it is so, the almost precise localization of such tempering can also be done successfully in a suspect digital medical image. The basis of our proposed algorithm is the hash-based representation of a digital image. We use discrete wavelet transform as a tool. It allows us to identify direction of tampering. The direction of tampering helps us converge on the tampered object in the localization area. We will show that our algorithm is robust against harmless manipulation, sensitive enough for even a minute tampering. In case of multiple tampering, proposed method is able to identify location as well as direction of multiple tampering, while some of the existing methods fail in this area. Our proposed technique is fast and generates smaller hash, as it works with smaller hash function in comparison with the similar available techniques.
- Routing and Wavelength Assignment in DWDM Network
Dharmendra Gupta (200311010)
Abstract: All-Optical Networks employing Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) are believed to be the next generation networks that can meet the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth of the end users. The problem of Routing and Wavelength Assignment (RWA) has been receiving a lot of attention recently due to its application to optical networks. Optimal Routing and Wavelength Assignment can significantly increase the efficiency of wavelength-routed all-optical networks. This thesis presents some new heuristics for wavelength assignment and converter placement in mesh topologies. Our heuristics try to assign the wavelengths in an efficient manner that results in very low blocking probability. We propose novel static and dynamic assignment schemes that outperform the assignments reported in the literature even when converters are used. The proposed on-line scheme called Round-Robin assignment outperforms previously proposed strategies such as first-fit and random assignment schemes. The performance improvement obtained with the proposed static assignments is very significant when compared with the dynamic schemes. We designed and developed a simulator in Matlab6.5 that supports the 2D mesh topology with DWDM as well as random topology generation. We ran extensive simulations and compared our heuristics with those reported in the literature. We have examined converter placement in mesh topologies and proposed that placing converters at the center yields better results than uniform placement when dimension order routing is employed. We introduced a new concept called wavelength assignment with second trial that results in extremely low blocking probabilities when compared to schemes based on a single trial. Our proposed schemes are simple to implement and do not add to the cost. Thus we conclude that wavelength assignment plays more significant role in affecting the blocking probability than wavelength converters. The algorithm yields significant improvements in terms of the request blocking probability over traditional techniques. Also we have observed from simulated results that by using even limited conversion of degree two is sufficient to achieve performance of full conversion. We have achieved this performance by using our better heuristic technique of establishing lightpaths.
- Design of Laser Driver Circuit
Neha Khera (200311041)
Abstract: Designing an Optoelectronic Integrated Circuit (OEIC) is an attractive field of research as it bridges the interface between electrical and optical components. The design of laser driver in optical transmitter is very critical because it requires large output current and high speed. To date, majority of laser drivers have been designed using Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) due to wider bandwidth and good quality of passive components. However, the standard digital Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) technology provides advantages, such as, low power, low cost of fabrication due to high production yield, and a higher degree of integration. Thus, the silicon CMOS technology, which is well known for low cost and high density, is preferred to design an Optoelectronic circuitry. Under this thesis, the work undertaken pertains to devising cascode-based laser driver circuit operating at 2.5 Gbps, using Hewlett Packard CMOS26G 0.8 micron CMOS process. The devised circuit integrates well with the 1550nm rate equation based equivalent circuit model generated from R-soft design tool kit OptSim 3.6. This is definitely a step forward on the existing topologies, which have worked on 850nm VCSEL. The thesis projects reduction in number of transistors and, consequently, the chip area occupied by the driver.

Abstract: In the present world where everything is shifting on online based portal, the market of booking rooms online is also a rapidly growing industry. No one wants to go through the trouble of looking up for the rooms or apartments when you are on a trip or moving into a new place. For the same there exist numerous websites which provides the facility of booking hotels room online and there are websites which deals with the apartments too. The main motivation behind working on this project is that there are no such websites which dedicatedly deals with the apartments of the locals peoples and that too in tier 2 cities where there are no or very less good hotels are available, but attract a good amount of people because of significant reasons. In this project, we have built such a system where people having extra rooms or apartments can list up for rent on per night basis and people travelling to that place who would like to stay with locals for numerous reasons like to know the locals and their culture well or let’s just say they don’t want to live in hotels, so they can search for an alternative place to live.

Development of Street Food Portal
Sahil Shah (201001180)
Abstract: There are numerous methods to share information about food. But they are just limited to one to one conversation, or a house-hold secret of a family, a colony, a group of friends etc. who might be food enthusiasts. There are other ways by which we can get information about restaurants in the city like Zomato.com, etc. but it’s limited to high end restaurants, cafes and bars. We usually don’t get information about street food and even if it is there, the content available is minimal. The aim of this project is to design a web-tool which would have two clients namely users and contributors. It provides information about Street Food Joints and help the users to know more about the street food of their city. And then for contributors, I would provide a portal where they can share their reviews with their fellow food enthusiasts.

- Characterization and Thermal Resistance Estimation of AlGaN/GaN based High Electron Mobility Transistors
Tanu Jindal (200601014): III-nitrides semiconductor devices are being widely used as a good technology vehicle for high-frequency and high-power applications. In particular, AlGaN/GaN High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMT) are currently the most promising devices for microwave power amplification. These devices can work efficiently under wider bias ranges without breakdown due to better material properties responsible for high power/high frequency, i.e., large band gap, high electron drift velocity and high breakdown electric field. Since these devices operate at high voltage levels which may result in large currents and can lead to considerable heat generation causing significant increase in the channel temperature and thermal resistance that adversely affects the electron transport properties. The reliability and power performance of AlGaN/GaN HEMT power devices depend critically on thermal resistance and operating channel temperature. Therefore, an accurate estimation of thermal resistance and channel temperature is highly desirable. In this study, reported closed form expressions are used for estimating the thermal resistance of 0.25 micron gate AlGaN/GaN HEMTs through simulation and its variation with geometrical parameters for different substrates, e.g., SiC, Sapphire, Si, GaN and Diamond. In this project, simulation is carried out in MATLAB R2008b to predict the thermal behavior of AlGaN/GaN HEMTs with industry standard geometrical parameters.

In order to get a clear picture of above we have divided the report into ’what’, ’why’ and ’how’?
- Precise Eye Location
Aunindra Kumar Sinha (200201045): Precisely locating the position of eye is very often required in Face Recognition and Detection. In the first stage the proposed method performs the Coarse eye location and in the subsequent stage Fine Eye Location is performed. For Coarse Eye Location, the edges of eye region are detected using Sobel Edge Detector with Local Adaptive Thresholding. In Fine Eye Location ellipse detection algorithm is used. Experimental results shows that this method successfully locates eye from given images.

- Triangular clad side pumped photonic crystal double clad fiber laser
Shashwat Singh (200101051): Double clad fibers are a way employed to power scale the rare earth doped fiber lasers that find application in many practical fields namely optical measuring, telecommunications, spectroscopy, sensors and medicines. The shape and positioning of the core and inner clad are extremely important as the absorption characteristics of the fiber is dependent on them. Also the pumping technique employed governs the coupling efficiency. Here we have proved that triangular shape in the inner cladding is optimal and the IVGT (Imbedded V Groove Technique) for pumping can be used to circumvent the typical deficiencies of end pumping techniques. As we move to higher power scale, the nonlinear effects that were negligible earlier become prominent. Photonic crystals can be employed in the inner and outer clad to reduce the nonlinear effect. The nonlinear effects can be classified into two categories namely the material dispersion and the waveguide dispersion. Also we know that the material dispersion characteristic of air is lower than any other material, thus the use of air holes (photonic crystals) may reduce the nonlinear effects.So in the due course of the project we have proved that the triangular clad is optimal using geometric optics. We have also calculated the numerical apertures, the angle of incidence and the hole density in the inner and the outer clad thereby integrating the photonic crystals with double clad fibers.
