Prathilothamai M. and Nair, P. S., “De-duplication of passports using Aadhaar”, 2017 International Conference on Computer Communication and Informatics, ICCCI 2017. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2017.[Abstract]


Big data is an emerging technology that is becoming an essential part of national governance. Aadhaar is the unique identification scheme of India, handled by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), which deals with big data. Every person above the age of 5 years has to register their demographic details (Name, Date of Birth, Address and Phone number) and biometric details (10 fingerprints and both iris) and then these details are used to verify the authenticity of the person when any services are required by him. Passport is a legal document that is carried by a person when he travels between countries, but in the case of the older passports with no biometric data, a person may have more than one legal passport with different demographic details. This paper does a case study on the existing de-duplication methods for passport enrolments and other such documents. In the case of newer passports, it takes 10 days to link with Aadhaar at the time of registration, hence the aim is to reduce the processing time of the linking and verification. String matching algorithms are used to compare the demographics, and techniques such as genetic programming and hashing are used for de-duplication. This case study also helps identify big and fast data platforms to identify such e-governance plans, by evaluating the accuracy and efficiency of existing algorithms. This system aims to predict the duplication of passports by linking Aadhaar and passport details, and to reduce the processing time of the Aadhaar database by using parallel algorithms. © 2017 IEEE.

Book Chapter

Prathilothamai M., Marilakshmi, S., Majeed, N., and Viswanathan, V., “Timely prediction of road traffic congestion using ontology”, in Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, vol. 398, Springer Verlag, 2016, pp. 331-344.[Abstract]


In developing countries, traffic in a road network is a major issue. In this paper we investigate the tradeoff between speed versus accuracy of predicting the severity of road traffic congestion. The timely prediction of traffic congestion using semantic web technologies that will be helpful in various applications like better road guidance, vehicle navigation system. In the proposed work, ontology is created based on sensor and video data. By using rule inference of ontology on parallel processing of sensor and video data, our system gives the timely prediction of traffic congestion. © Springer India 2016.

Prathilothamai M., Prashant R. Nair, R. Singh, A. P., and Aditya, P. N. S., “Offline Navigation: GPS based Location Assisting System”, Indian Journal of Science and Technology, vol. 9, no. 45, pp. 1-6, 2016.[Abstract]


Objectives: We have developed an Offline Navigation Android1 application especially for the visually impaired people, the application also features a module through which the user, if lost track or has been abducted can reach back to the original location without the use of the internet.
Methods/Statistical Analysis: We have used Google’s direction API2 for the route data, using this data the application guides the user with the help of Global Positioning System and Magnetic sensor. The main uniqueness of this application is, it works without the internet and consumes less battery charge.
Findings: The developed application uses the data from the direction API (i.e., JSON format text) for navigating without displaying the map instead by reading out instructions, showing just direction and giving vibration feedback if deviating from the path. Thus the application differs from a typical navigation application. Application/Improvements: The developed application has a unique functionality for retracing a user’s path, and also consumes less space and computation compared to other navigation applications.

B. Pratheeba and Prathilothamai M., “A study of distributed systems in realtime applications”, International Journal of Control Theory and Applications, vol. 9, no. 10, pp. 4233-4240, 2016.[Abstract]


In Real-Time Applications, handling data is a challenging task due to the huge volume and high velocity of data. In order to handle Big Data in real time, Distributed Frameworks like Hadoop and Apache Spark are introduced. We investigate the tradeoffbetween speed Vs. storage of Hadoop and Apache Spark. We have proposed a system which will help public in emergency situation during travelling on the road. As a result of this survey, we have finalized Apache Spark is suitable for our system. © International Science Press.

Prathilothamai M., Lakshmi, A. M. Sree, and Viswanthan, D., “Cost effective road traffic prediction model using Apache spark”, Indian Journal of Science and Technology, vol. 9, 2016.[Abstract]


Objectives: We proposed a cost effective model to predict the traffic to inform the public about the current traffic condition to all persons who are entering the same lane. Analysis: In real time application like traffic monitoring, it needs to process huge volume of data in huge size. We analyzed the traffic prediction using the current technologies Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark framework. Spark is processing the 10 Terabytes of data in half-a-second. The main uniqueness from our approach is that we can predict the road traffic using Spark within half-a-second. Findings: Road traffic is predicted using Ultrasonic and PIR sensor within a half second. The proposed system uses the vehicle count and speed to predict the traffic condition. Existing system using hadoop will predict the traffic in few seconds. Whereas in the proposed system performance gets increased using Spark. Therefore, the results are more helpful in finding the road traffic condition. Improvement: The proposed system predicts it in a half a second by using Spark whereas the existing system predicted the road traffic by consuming more time.

Identifying incidents of threat to public life from news articles can be used in various applications like traffic management, disaster management etc. In this paper we are identifying threat to public life by processing RSS feed of news articles and we investigate the tradeoff between speed Vs accuracy of predicting the severity of the incidents which is treat to public life. It can also be used to collect information on geographical locations where threat has occurred. We have proposed a NLP-based approach that would help identify features of the data that are salient for classifying it as road incident like accident or bomb blast etc and its severity. © Research India Publications.
