  • Computer Vision Based Robotic Arm Controlled Using Interactive GUI
  • Abstract This paper presents the design and implementation of a robotic vision system operated using an interactive Graphical User Interface (GUI) application. As robotics continue to become a more integral part of the industrial complex, there is a need for automated systems that require minimal to no user training to operate. With this motivation in mind, the system is designed so that a beginner user can operate the device with very little instruction. The application allows users to determine their desired object, which will be picked up and placed by a robotic arm into the target location. The application allows users…

  • Healthcare Device Security: Insights and Implications
  • Abstract Healthcare devices play an essential role in tracking and managing patient’s safety. However, the complexities of healthcare devices often remain ambiguous due to hardware, software, or the interoperable healthcare system problems. There are essentially two critical factors for targeting healthcare: First, healthcare data is the most valuable entity on the dark web; and the second, it is the easiest to hack. Data pilferage has become a major hazard for healthcare organizations as the hackers now demand ransom and threaten to disclose the sensitive data if not paid within the stipulated timeline. The present study enlists a thorough research on the…

  • Optimal Eighth-Order Solver for Nonlinear Equations with Applications in Chemical Engineering
  • Abstract A new iterative technique for nonlinear equations is proposed in this work. The new scheme is of three steps, of which the first two steps are based on the sixth-order modified Halley’s method presented by the authors, and the last is a Newton step, with suitable approximations for the first derivatives appeared in the new scheme. The eighth-order of convergence of the new method is proved via Mathematica code. Every iteration of the presented scheme needs the evaluation of three functions and one first derivative. Therefore, the scheme is optimal in the sense of Kung-Traub conjecture. Several test nonlinear problems…

  • Live Data Analytics with IoT Intelligence-Sensing System in Public Transportation for COVID-19 Pandemic
  • Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has presented an unprecedented challenge to the entire world. It is a humanitarian crisis on a global scale. The virus continues to spread throughout nations, putting health systems under enormous pressure in the battle to save lives. With this growing crisis, companies and researchers worldwide are searching for ways to overcome the challenges associated with this virus. Also, the transport sector will play a critical role in revitalizing economies while simultaneously containing the spread of COVID-19. As the virus is still circulating, the only solution is to redesign public transportation to make people feel safe. In this…

  • Device Security Assessment of Internet of Healthcare Things
  • Abstract Security of the Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT) devices plays a vital role in e-healthcare today and there has been a rapid increase in the use of networked devices of IoHT in the present healthcare services. However, these networked devices are also highly vulnerable to attackers who constantly target the security of devices and their components to gain access to the patients’ data. Infringement of patients’ data is not only a violation of privacy but can also jeopardize patients’ health if the health records are tampered with. Once the device has been intruded upon, attackers can not only change the…

  • Ontology-Based Verification of UML Class Model XOR Constraint and Dependency Relationship Constraints
  • Abstract Unified Modeling Language (UML) models are considered important artifacts of model-driven engineering (MDE). This can automatically transform models to other paradigms and programming languages. If a model has bugs, then MDE can transfer these to a new code. The class model is a key component of UML that is used in analysis and design. Without a formal foundation, UML can create only graphical diagrams, making it impossible to verify properties such as satisfiability, consistency and consequences. Different techniques have been used to verify UML class models, but these do not support some important components. This paper transforms and verifies unsupported…

  • Realization of IoT Integration System of LED Based on Particle Swarm Optimization
  • Abstract The purpose of this research is to design an intelligent LED lighting control system with wireless remote control. Since the designed system is mainly based on Android applications, it controls wireless lighting modules through a sever by means of a smartphone, tablet computer, or another handheld mobile device, and the values displayed on the handheld device are used to monitor the establishment and design of the electricity state and multiple-LED light control scenarios in real time. The server is connected with a touch human-machine interface, digital meter, wireless lighting controller, infrared learning module, and other devices through RS-232 and RS-485…

  • A Study on Using a Wireless Sensor Network to Design a Plant Monitoring System
  • Abstract Traditional agriculture has to face different climatic factors, resulting in unstable crop yields, whereas a plant factory is indoors, thus avoiding different natural disasters and insect pests. It is also available for bulk production in all-weather all year-round, guaranteeing crop quality. This study uses a wireless sensor network (WSN) architecture for multi-monitoring of a plant environment, aiming to improve its growing environment quality. In terms of monitoring environment, the sensor modules at the end device nodes are combined with Arduino for capturing the sensor values, which are transmitted by wireless signal transmission. The data of wireless signals are further transmitted…

  • Decision Support System Tool for Arabic Text Recognition
  • Abstract The National Center for Education Statistics study reported that 80% of students change their major or institution at least once before getting a degree, which requires a course equivalency process. This error-prone process varies among disciplines, institutions, regions, and countries and requires effort and time. Therefore, this study aims to overcome these issues by developing a decision support tool called TiMELY for automatic Arabic text recognition using artificial intelligence techniques. The developed tool can process a complete document analysis for several course descriptions in multiple file formats, such as Word, Text, Pages, JPEG, GIF, and JPG. We applied a comparative…
