Abstract - As vehicle and computer technique are advanced, a vehicle has many electronic control unit (ECU). The ECUs control a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine to ensure the optimum running through reading values from a multitude of sensors within the engine bay, interpreting the data using multidimensional performance maps, and adjusting the engine actuators accordingly. It has utilized on vehicular diagnostic system such as on-board diagnostic version II

(OBD-II). The OBD-II collects state of health information for various vehicular sub-systems. We propose automotive platform that can manage vehicle in real-time. It enables an early diagnosis based on storing information in server. It ensures high safety, more comfort.

We propose a converter that OBD protocol is converted into Bluetooth protocol and a graphic user interface (GUI) for smart devices. The smart devices have limit of storage. A server needs in order to store vehicular information that is transported in real-time. We propose cloud computing for construction server. A repair technician would analyze failure cause through stored data in server. It enables to detect potential error in vehicle. The second section describes background, third section presents proposed scenarios.

Abstract— This paper presents an area-efficient FPGA architecture for handshake-component-based design. The handshake-component-based design is suitable for largescale, complex asynchronous circuit because of its understandability. However, conventional FPGA architecture for handshake-component-based design is not area-efficient because of its complex logic blocks. This paper proposes an area-efficient FPGA architecture that combines complex logic blocks (LBs) and simple LBs. Complex LBs implement handshake components that implement data path controller, and simple LBs implement handshake component that implement data path. The FPGA based on the proposed architecture is implemented in a 65nm process. Its evaluation results show that the proposed FPGA can implement asynchronous circuits efficiently.

Abstract— Parallel programs written using the standard

Message Passing Interface (MPI) frequently depend upon the ability to synchronize execution using a barrier. Barrier synchronization operations can be very time consuming. As a consequence, there have been investigations of custom interconnects and protocols for accelerating this operation and other collective operations in parallel MPI programs.

In this paper, we explore the use of hardware programmable network interface cards utilizing standard media access protocols as an alternative to fully custom synchronization networks. Our work is based upon the NetFPGA – a programmable network interface with an on-board Virtex

Abstract—This paper presents an improved approach for region of interest (ROI) extraction in infrared (IR) images using

Contrast-Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE). Previous approaches use global image enhancement to increase the accuracy for ROI extraction in IR images. It is shown in this paper that the performance can be increased significantly using a local enhancement approach. CLAHE is used for this purpose in this paper to facilitate local image enhancement in an efficient way. It is shown that the proposed approach improves the ROI extraction performance.

I. INTRODUCTION

Detection and tracking of targets in infrared (IR) images is an important task particularly for defence and security applications. However detecting targets in infrared images can be challenging because of changing environmental conditions, sensor noise and low signal-to-noise ratio imaging [1].

Abstract - In this paper an Intelligent Energy

Management System based on fuzzy logic is proposed. The objective of the proposed strategy is to optimize the cost saving for the end consumer by determining the share of the power drawn from the grid or the Energy Storage Unit for each hour of the day, because the price of the energy varies each hour depending on the demand and is determined a day before. The strategy is based on Mamdani's Fuzzy Inference

System. The proposed design will also avoid overloading the grid during the periods of high demand by shifting the load to the ESU.

Keywords— Intelligent optimization; fuzzy logic

1. Introduction

Energy consumption is increasing worldwide [1]; therefore it makes good sense to lower the consumption from the grid generated using traditional methodology to reduce mankind’s footprint. The electricity bill of a large enterprise can be minimized by managing dynamic energy pricing [2] [3]. The wholesale electrical companies determine the cost of energy for each hour of the day at midnight before the day begins
