1.Name of the Project: “3-D Intelligent information system for identifying suspicious activity”

1. Sponsoring Agency : UGC
2. Name of the Investigator : Dr.Mazher Iqbal
3. Name of the co-investigator : Mr.Arun
4. Project start date : Yet to start
5. Scheduled time for Project completion: 3 years
6. Project Amount: Rs.3,70,000
7. Project expenditure: Procurement of Lab view software & Thermal Cameras
8. Project Outcomes:

b. Able to publish research papers

Proposal : This project presents an efficient 3-D Intelligent Information System that enables recognition suspicious activities of different interactive patterns among a group of people. Detecting and recognizing suspicious activities is a complex, diverse, and challenging area that have scope for modern day research. Siemens AG developed and installed the first Video Surveillance for observing the launch of V-2rockets in the year 1942 at Test Stand VII in Peenemunde, Germany. Government and private sector need effective monitoring of public places such as airports, banks, railway stations, car parking, city center, shopping malls, crowded sports arenas, estates, military installations, etc., to increase global security.

Because of technology advancement in video surveillance system leads to decay of major crimes. The identification of abnormal activity is performed by where (spatial location in the image) and when (temporal location) occurs in the video. Each abnormal activity in the video is classified into one of the predefined activity classes. Now a day’s surveillance videos are monitored by human, there is a chance of missing some events which are really suspicious. Nearly all video surveillance systems are linked to police stations. They may also be monitored by private security guards at a centrally located area within the boundaries of the surveillance area. Should a private security guard notice an illegal act taking place, he or she can instantly send the image to local police monitors so the police can observe the crime and dispatch officers. We propose a novel efficient 3-DIntelligent Information System that automatically identify the suspicious activities and other changing information. The recognition methods that are reviewed include single person (e.g., holding knife, holding gun, simply loitering), multiple-person interactions (e.g.,fighting and personal attacks), person–vehicle interactions (e.g., hit-and-run,vehicle vandalism), and person–vision facility/location interactions (e.g.,object left behind and trespassing)

Proposal : Flooding is one of the major disasters occurring in various parts of the world. The model is very useful to monitor the water level variations in rivers, dams, reservoirs and the monitored values regularly stored in the web server which is useful to send flood alerts to corresponding authority for proper action and the same can be viewed through the web. This research investigates the use of wireless sensor network (WSN) for monitoring of river and flood conditions. The wireless sensor network system can also be used for real-time monitoring of water conditions like water flow and precipitation level was developed to be employed in monitoring flood. The two main objectives of the developed system is to serve

1) As information channel for flooding between the involved authorities and experts to enhance their responsibilities and collaboration and

2) As a web based information source for the public, responding to their need for information on water condition and flooding.

The developed system is composed of three major components: wireless sensor network, processing/transmission unit, and database/ application server. The sensor network is based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard and a new multi-hop routing protocol was designed suited for monitoring and control applications.

Proposal : Trees outside the forest are defined, as all trees excluded from the definition of forest and other wooded lands. High spatial resolution remote sensing data are being used to investigate forest classification at both coarse and fine scale. Tree crown is a major parameter for finalizing the tree’s location which is important for forest/associated vegetation. Information about tree crown is difficult to obtain and rarely available from traditional forest inventory. So using different techniques like Watershed, Local Maxima Filtering and 2D-Walking Ant Histogram to analyze the size of tree crown, Delineation of tree crown and Identification of individual tree crown.
Objectives:

Proposal : Brain computer interfaces (BCIs) have the potential to offer humans a new and innovative non muscular Modality to assess the brain activity under different conditions. These systems rely on the acquisition and interpretation of the neurophysiologic signals. Electroencephalograph (EEG) is the only practical noninvasive, cheap and real-time capable imaging technology for use in a BCI system.

The aim of this research is to develop Brain test adequacy (BTA) system for assessing student’s mental ability (intelligence and achievements). In this work, students will be categorized under different attributes such as age group, gender, economic status. These subjects will be exposed to different cognitive test under conditions like stress, anxiety, mood etc, and mind patterns will be recorded to assess the subjects, based on verbal, non verbal skills, attention, memory, overall intelligence and achievement. This data will provide the status of cognitive level of subject’s brain. Now, these student groups will be subjected to different acoustic-visual stimuli, meditation and yoga for a period of time to verify possible improvement of cognitive test index.
