Conference Paper

Archanaa R., Nivetha, D., Anjalikumari, T., Preethikka, B., and M.V.K. Kiran, “A thrifty approach to the bus bunching problem”, in Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Signal Processing and Communication, ICSPC 2017, 2018, vol. 2018-January, pp. 191-195.[Abstract]


The bus bunching problem explains one of the most common problems faced by the individuals in major cities who are travelling by bus for their daily commute. We often come across situations where we wait for a bus for a longer duration and buses won't turn up and suddenly we can see a bunch of same numbered busses coming together. Due to this uneven pattern in bus arrivals, most of the people tend to board a bus which is heavily crowded and later they may find a bus following the same route carrying very few passengers. In this scenario, we see that the buses are unevenly distributed with passengers. Our proposal is to solve this bunching problem by providing an Android application to the passengers. The application keeps the passengers updated of all the buses coming via their current location with the estimated arrival time and count of passengers in each bus. The android application takes in data from the server and provides information of the bus and helps in a hassle-free transit. © 2017 IEEE. More »»

Archanaa R., Athulya, V., Rajasundari, T., and M.V.K. Kiran, “A comparative performance analysis on network traffic classification using supervised learning algorithms”, in 2017 4th International Conference on Advanced Computing and Communication Systems (ICACCS), 2017.[Abstract]


Network traffic classification has become vital due to the increased flow of web traffic from services like HTTP, FTP, and SMTP etc. The idea of Network traffic classification is to categorize the network traffic and regulate the flow of data in the network there by monitoring the traffic. In this paper, a comparative analysis of different supervised learning algorithms like Ensemble learning methods, Trees, Bayes method are done and results are examined. To select the most reliable features, wrapper method-classifier subset evaluation feature selection method is used. From the analysis results of different algorithms, decorate algorithm which belongs to the ensemble classifiers performs better than other algorithms. More »»

Conference Paper

M.V.K. Kiran, Vinodhini, R. E., Archanaa R., and Vimalkumar, K., “User specific product recommendation and rating system by performing sentiment analysis on product reviews”, in 2017 4th International Conference on Advanced Computing and Communication Systems (ICACCS), 2017.[Abstract]


Recommendation systems have emerged rapidly in the past decade. Recommendation of products to attract customers that meet their requirements is very important for the vendors to survive in the global market. The approach proposed in this paper is novel and serves as a better alternative to rate a product based on its technical specification by analyzing large number of user reviews which are extracted dynamically from several top e-commerce websites. This avoids the need, for the user, to search for opinions and comments online before making a purchase. The proposed approach in this study extracts specification list like battery, processor, camera etc. and customer reviews for a user specified product from different websites and identifies crucial terms corresponding to the technical features of the product in the review to determine polarity of the feature and classifying it under the specification list. Each specification is assigned a score based on polarity i.e. positive/negative feedback. Overall product rate is calculated by aggregating the score specific to individual features. This approach is very useful for those customers who target at specific features in a product.

Journal Article

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.

Archanaa R., 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. More »»

The benefits of wireless technology are obvious and tremendously growing, but at the same time risks are also surpassing; mainly in unlicensed band. In particular, wireless technologies integrated into medical system requires high degree of reliability and security, that has resulted in several vulnerabilities making them susceptible to different kinds of threats, raising concerns about how protected they are against data security risks and interference issues. The risks
include unauthorized changes of device settings, obtaining serial number, patient name, diagnosis, deactivating the device functionalities, thus harming the patient. Traditional Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Wireless Coexistence are the two risk factors which are to be mainly emphasized in Wireless Personal Medical Devices (WPMD). Introducing a new wireless service into the environment ensue a pile of threats due to its potential source of Electro Magnetic (EM) energy which impacts other devices and systems operating in the same environment.Henceforth, this work aims at providing a method to improve reliability by integrating heterogeneous wireless technologies to avoid data loss, and to improve the EMC standards. Also, we propose a novel security mechanism for WPMD by integrating Fragmentation with xTEA algorithm to enhance security for the data transfer between WPMDs against a possible set of cyber-attacks in public environment.

, Kartik, S., Mohammed, R., Sailusha, R., F., H., and Archanaa R., “Personalised Tourism Mobile Application using Semantic Web”, International Journal of Software and Web Sciences, vol. 2, 2014.[Abstract]


Owing to the varied interests of tourists visiting a place, listing out all possible places of interests in a particular city can be very tedious. As a result, providing assistance to tourists to visit their places of interest in an efficient manner has been highly sought after. Besides, the number of people who use smart phones is also on the rise. As a way of taking advantage of the same, this project focuses on creating a personalized Android mobile tourism application using Semantic Web. This is achieved by creating a personalised profile for the user. This profile is used to suggest places that he/she can visit based on his current location and interest as opposed to the current systems which display all possible locations based on his previous search histories
