Abstract

There is a growing interest in the design of aerial vehicles with advanced autonomous capabilities and many have already found their way into military and civil applications. However, while the focus has been on the development of these outdoor vehicles, little attention has been given to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in indoor environments. Such aerial robots would be valuable for indoor surveillance, bomb disposal, personal assistive devices, or stock counting, which is the focus of our work. We present a navigation system for an aerial robot that uses an optic flow-based vision system for its localization, making it suitable for cluttered urban and GPS-denied indoor environments. Stock counting (or inventory counting) is implemented by the placement and detection of ArUco Markers on individual packages. The system is implemented on a quadrotor with all the computations performed on-board, and its experimental results are presented.

Keywords:      Image processing, robotics, unmanned aerial vehicles, inventory counting.

Abstract

Instant messaging (IM) has become a popular way to communicate with clients and customers in the business world. IM is a natural way for businesses to provide real-time services to customers. It adds a flexible and comforting human element to an otherwise automated process. Nevertheless, online business activities using IM involve a lot of repetitive and redundant tasks. Current IMs only allow information sharing without any business transactions functionalities. Manually managing business on IM is highly time consuming. At present, there are no framework available for automated online business transactions utilizing IM. The objective of this study is to propose a framework for online business transactions such as product information, inventory, and order process via automated IM called Virtual Assistant (VA). The system uses Natural Language Processing and collected database. A prototype will be developed based on the proposed framework. It is anticipated that the proposed approach will serve as an automated customer service consultant that will enable fast and efficient online business transactions.

Abstract

Software development project are considered one riskiest projects. Software projects have not gone up significantly compared to the amount of research that has worked to raise the success rate. Where it was observed that during previous years software projects were not completed on time, within the planned budget or in accordance with the specified quality. Complexity of interaction between the project constructs “risk, success factors and success criteria” could help one main reasons behind this failure. This paper explores the complexity of interaction between those components in order to provide the software project decision makers with useful information to build their plans to rise the success of software project. 

Keywords:  Complexity; Interactions; Mapping; Risk factors; software development project; centrality and network analysis.
