M.V.K. Kiran, Vimalkumar, K., Vinodhini, R. E., and Archanaa, R., “An early detection-warning system to identify speed breakers and bumpy roads using sensors in smartphones”, International Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering, vol. 7, pp. 1377-1384, 2017.[Abstract]

Speed breakers and bumpy roads are a major threat to drivers that questions their safety. The mishap happens because of no sign boards indicating the speed breaker, poor visibility at night and road works that are often carried out with no proper signs of road deviations and also the negligence of the driver. All these factors put the life of the persons in vain causing damage to the vehicle as well as life. Bumpy roads have become a problem for cars with less ground clearance. The focus of the paper is on designing an early warning system detecting both speed breakers and bad road conditions. The approach used in this paper is a real-time solution and is developed as an android service that runs in the background and relies on Google Maps application in the smartphone. This service will throw an alert giving early warning if the user is approaching the speed breaker or a bumpy road. Apart from just giving an early alert to the user, it also provides the user with an alternative and a better route. The solution proposed in this work is a form of crowdsourcing where users share and get data, therefore making the system cost effective. © 2017 Institute of Advanced Engineering and Science.

Journal Article

A. Rajendran, M.V.K. Kiran, Vasudevan, S. K., and A. Baskar, “An exhaustive survey on human computer interaction’s past, present and future”, International Journal of Applied Engineering Research, vol. 10, no. 2, pp. 5091-5105, 2015.[Abstract]

Technology has grown so much that interactions can happen even between computers and humans. The study related to this filed is called as HCI (Human Computer Interaction). It is more of an inter-disciplinary domain consisting of Computer Vision, Augmented Reality, Machine learning, Networking, Computer Graphics combined to build an effective computing system analysing the behaviour of humans as well as the computer technologies. HCI has simplified the human interaction with computers in the past, present and will always evolve till the end of time. Although the term HCI is in use since 1980’s, this field has come into limelight only after 1990’s. HCI deals with the design aspects of an entity which can be software or a product. It neither focuses on humans nor on the computers, but it certainly focuses on bridging the gap between the humans and computers. The main aim should be to develop a user friendly system rather than being confound. © Research India Publications.
