Description

According to WHO(World Health Organization) reports, among all disease transmitting insects mosquito is the most hazardous insect. In 2015 alone, 214 million cases of malaria were registered worldwide. Zika virus is another deadly disease transmitted from mosquitoes. According to CDC report, in 2016 62,500 suspected case of Zika were reported to the Puerto Rico Department of Health (PRDH) out of which 29,345 cases were found positive. There are 3500 different species of mosquitoes present in the world out of which 175 types is found in United States. But only few of them are responsible for these above mentioned fatal disease. Therefore classification between hazardous and regular mosquitoes are very important. For regular person with no expertise in this field would be almost impossible to identify the difference. Even for the mosquito expert, identifying different species is a very tedious and time consuming job. Hence in this paper, we have tried to classify 7 different species of dead mosquitoes with total 60 samples collected from Hillsborough County Mosquito and Aquatic Weed Control Unit,Tampa Florida by capturing image from smart phone cameras. With our approach we want to enable nonexpert population to early identify the risk and act pro-actively. We pre-processed the image for removing noise and applied random forest classification algorithm to distinguish different species. Achieved good precision,recall,F1 measure and aggregate 83:3% accuracy. We are also planning to develop a smart-phone application which will leverage this learning model and help in empowering population to identify mosquito species without any knowledge in this field.

Eko System : ANOTHER WAY TO PRESERVE LIFE

the following is a selection of notes that we made around the project that we called « project Eko System » 4 grad students worked on it in addition of Nader Rahman & me :

PROBLEM STATEMENT The continuous speed the life is changing during the last century, leads to days where time is so valuable that people cannot find time to live and work anymore. Life as the sum of all things to feel and take care of is submerged by work, transport and other occupation necessary to provide the money to live. Life incorporates in some step, time to care for babies and children. The need to monitor each activity of the baby, of the child can be satisfied in different ways among it through the technology means that people have access to these days but it still not enough. This need of monitor the ecosystem and the events the baby or the child is facing, is the same need to those who raise animals as fish , birds or even plants.

SOLUTION ‘Eko system’ is a collection of IoT based products that monitors an ecosystem of animals as an introduction to work on finally on a product to monitor a human baby. The idea is to start with a smart aquarium that interacts with websites and mobile devices displaying all the possible ecosystem signs as temperature, oxygen level... etc. and offers the possibility to watch the aquarium and monitor certain actions as feeding and changing water through website and mobile devices through a cloud based platform. This will be the Eko aquarium. The next step is to continue with the Eko cage for birds and Eko cradle for baby animals. The final step is to build the supreme product which is eko Babycare for real human babies. The plan is to commercialize all products step by step excepting the eko Babycare that will be left to an R&D section financed by fundings and the commercialized products.

EKO BABYCARE ‘Eko Babycare’ is basically a smart bed for babies. The bed is equipped with cameras to monitor the baby state remotely from anywhere. With VR technology grandparents and parents can view their babies and interact with them. ‘Eko Babycare’ is also equipped with smart sensors to monitor the health of the baby. Humidity sensors shows the state of the bed (or diapers) and Gas sensors may detect any abnormal gas level in the air. The solution is basically divided in three parts: The IoT based equipment to collect the data and activities, a set of mobile apps and a website to monitor the activities, and finally a Cloud backend in order to process and analyze the data.

IMPACT • This package of device and software is a revolution since it uses the emerging technologies to save time. A valuable time of work and business, and keep the good practices and sides of life: relationships between human beings and the other essential components of this ecosystem. • The use of technology for good purpose can lead to different types of connections and may have huge impact to people who spend their life working because they have to, without losing the human qualities and abilities to care and raise. • The idea and solution is meant to be a way to end with distance and time problem. A puppy, a bird or a child can be in touch with all members of family. People who care about animals can make their companions a subject of interactions and a point of interest in social media if they share their activities.

BUSINESS VIABILITY There are mainly 4 steps to Eko system: Eko aquarium, Eko cage, Eko cradle, and Eko Babycare. Each product is meant for different category (fish, bird, baby animal, human baby). For each part there is a cloud based system using mobile devices and websites.

BUSINESS MODEL Customer Segments: Mass market People raising plants, animal in cities/apartments/ places where it is hard to raise or adopt an animal/plant People having troubles managing their time and willing to maintain the habit/the need of adopting/raising an animal or plant The solution is destined to all ages, all sexes Value Proposition:

Problem: The continuous speed the life is changing during the last century, leads to days where time is so valuable that people cannot find time to live and work anymore. Life as the sum of all things to feel and take care of is submerged by work, transport and other occupation necessary to provide the money to live.

Solution : monitor the ecosystem and the life events the raised/adopted animals as fish , birds or even plants. The idea is to start with a smart aquarium that interacts with the web and mobile devices displaying all the possible ecosystem signs as temperature, oxygen level... etc. and offers the possibility to watch the aquarium and monitor certain actions as feeding and changing water through website and mobile devices through a cloud based platform.

The final step is to build the supreme product which is eko Babycare for real human babies.

khushboo p. created project smart navigation for blind

smart navigation for blind

The blind stick is integrated with three ultrasonic sensor along with a water sensor and proximity sensor. Our proposed project first uses ultrasonic sensors to detect obstacles ahead and to the left and right of the person using ultrasonic waves. On sensing any obstacle the sensor passes this data to the microcontroller. The microcontroller then processes this data and calculates if the obstacle is close enough. If the obstacle is not that close the circuit does nothing. If the obstacle is closer than 2 meters then the microcontroller sends a signal to sound a buzzer. It also detects and sounds a different buzzer if it detects water and alerts the blind. This is done with the help of the water sensor. One more feature is that it allows the blind to detect if there is pit ahead or some stairs going downwards. This is achieved with the help of the proximity sensor. The system has one more advanced feature integrated to help the blind send a distress SMS to his relative in case he is in trouble. A GSM module is used for this purpose. Pressing the push-button sends the SMS to the relative.

I want to make a project which includes both code modernization as well as Artificial intelligence The project is to make a computer language or you can say a IDE software which is less time consuming and more easy to use. The idea we gonna use is we have to make use of software like Google assistant/ Siri and complilers to make a software which can increase interfaces and makes more easy to express ideas and complete a program in less time and make it easy for future generations to learn and share their ideas with the world. Imagine we can create a system software by just sharing our ideas with a software we will make ( like today we use C,C++,phyton,etc languages and compilers to make a new software)and our software will be ready .
