Abstract :

In today’s world, the field programmable gate array (FPGA) technology has advanced enough to model complex chips replacing custom application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and processors for signal processing and control applications. This project proposes a hardware/software co-simulation methodology using hardware description language (HDL) simulations on FPGA as an effort to accelerate the simulation time and performance [1, 2]. To accelerate the computation of the gesture recognition technique, an HW/SW implementation using field programmable gate array (FPGA) technology is presented in this project. The testing part of the neural network algorithm is being hardwired to improve the speed and performance. The American Sign Language gesture recognition is chosen to verify the performance of the approach. The major benefit of this design is that it takes only few milliseconds to recognize the hand gesture which makes it computationally more efficient.

Abstract :

This study aims to create an appropriate personality test to be used to study personality types of practitioners working in construction careers in Thailand. The findings from the study showed that the MBTI test increasingly revealed the personality types of individuals working in construction careers including relationship between personality and work performance. However, restriction in the study was “the full test comprises 126 question items considered too many with only 2 selected response items. It is not appropriate since it takes much time for completing the test. This can lead to unintentional answers and the obtained data are probably not real.”  Therefore, the researcher used the 94-item MBTI Form G, Thai version with Full Test with 2 response choices to improve and get a test in a form of short version survey with 32 question items and 5 multiple choices. The obtained test was measured reliability with Cronbach’s Alpha Coefficient. The reliability was 0.886 with 20% – 25% error, considered as acceptable reliability. The test is appropriate to be used for studying personality types of individuals working in construction careers in Thailand.

Abstract :

With the rapid development of science and technology, the mobile devices which we use in daily lives have integrated more and more sensors and been able to replace some of the traditional sensors to collect data, which makes the mobile crowd-sensing network to become an academic research hot spot. The users selected by the sensing tasks of the mobile crowd-sensing network are mostly distributed densely and encountered frequently, and the performance efficiency of the sensing tasks is improved by utilizing the short range wireless communication (such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi) with opportunistic transmission. Through the research and analysis of the data collection mechanism in the mobile crowd-sensing network and aimed at the deficiencies of the ecoSense mechanism on budget control and user incentive, we proposed a CoES mechanism. In this paper, we design compensation schemes for domestic users and control the budget through compensation ratio. In the aspect of user motivation, we design IOR user incentive mechanism. According to the amount of data uploaded by the user who act as a chance really and the information of device’s power, we analyze the cooperation workload and reward. Finally, we use SWIM data set for simulation experiments, the results show that our scheme compared with the direct-assignment scheme can effectively reduce the costs to 53%, compared with the ecoSense scheme can reduce 5% of the cost, and the efficiency increased with the increment of the amount of data.

Abstract :

This research aims to study types of personality of engineers working on construction project sites by using a newly developed personality test to test with the sample from different sectors, i.e. construction contractor companies, design consultants and construction supervision companies, and engineers who are state officers who are working in construction project sites. The sample (participants) is persons who are granted a license for professional practice in each level B.E. 2551 (2008), for control engineers according to Ministerial Regulation on a Determination of Field in Professional Engineering and Controlled Professional Engineering B.E.2550 (2007), and types and scales of the controlled professional engineering work in the field of civil engineering (Clause 4).  The study results found that 1) The sample of 380 persons, divided by the fields of controlled professional engineering, in civil engineering, electrical engineering, and environmental engineering most likely were people with rational decision-making (T:Thinking), with the mean scores at 81.5%, 71.67%, and 82.06% respectively. For those from mechanical engineering, 95.68% of them were people who work with plans (J: Judgment) and 95.00 percent of those from industrial engineering had a sensing personality trait as they seek information based on the truth (S: Sensing). It was also found that types of personality trait of civil engineers working in construction projects most likely encompassed ESTJ personality by 14.4 % 2) It was found that 2 types of personalities that were not found in civil engineers working in construction projects were ISTP and ESTP being in the group of SP, causing civil engineers had shortcomings, i.e they typically do not disclose important information to others, they rely on their skills too much. In this regard, procedures that should be provided are cut off, lack of decision-making, advice, and it may seem so harsh to other people’s feelings. Suggestion for development:  They should disclose some information to other people and express themselves. They should be patient, have a plan and make an effort to achieve the goals. They should take others into consideration and lower how they express their feelings unlimitedly, view things from multiple angles and they should not find the pleasure of objects only 3) Analysis The difference between the sexes Personality types of Civil Engineers using statistical tests T-Test found that the relationship is different. Significantly more important is personality type Sensing-S / Judgment-J, which could explain that. Gender differences in civil construction projects. To pay attention (S) for recognizing the uniqueness of each event. A summary of the procedure and the fact carefully studied (J) is responsible for planning and plan to tell attendees acknowledged.

Abstract :

EDXRF analysis on akanwu, unpurified and purified palm bunch ash (Elaeis guineensis), saw dust ash (Khaya ivorensis), plantain peel ash (Musa sapientum), pawpaw leaves (Carica papaya), bitter leaf (Vernonia amygdalina), two species ogbonno (Irvingia gabonensis), achi (Brachystegia eurycoma), ofor (Detarium microcarpum), ukpo (Mucuna flagellipes) and okro (Abelmoschus esculentus) used as local agents for Enhanced Oil Recovery beyond conventional waterflooding showed the presence of major, minor and trace elements with its oxide in varying proportions. Unpurified palm bunch ash, purified palm bunch ash, saw dust ash, plantain peel ash and akanwu contain 56.03%, 56.996%, 22.41%, 54.15%, 12.65% and 3.55%, 4.91%, 0.512%, 2.64%, 5.877% of potassium oxide and sodium oxide respectively. The Loss On Ignition (LOI) test showed the presence of carbonate ions as 42.65%, 47.44%, 37.54%, 40.33% and 30.54% in unpurified palm bunch ash, purified palm bunch ash, saw dust ash, plantain peel ash and akanwu respectively.  This analysis confirmed that the local akanwu in Nigeria is Potash and not Trona as commonly mistaken. pH is a major criteria for a successful alkaline flooding. Pawpaw leaves and bitter leaf contains 56.41%, 22.66%, 1.66%, 1.37% and 53.14%, 27.28%, 0.66%, 5.68% of potassium oxide, calcium oxide, iron III oxide and sodium oxide respectively. Aluminium and lead were absent in both unpurified and purified palm bunch ash but lead was present in plantain peel ash and akanwu sediment, though absent in extract from akanwu but silicon oxide, aluminium oxide and titanium oxide were present in akanwu. Analysis on the local polymers used as food thickeners also showed that they contain major elements like potassium, calcium, sulphur, phosphorus and sodium but the absence of magnesium except for one of the species of ogbonno. Pawpaw leaves contain vital elements and oxide that makes it nutritional rich for human consumption like other vegetables. These local materials if modified and refined can substitute synthetic chemicals used for Enhanced Oil Recovery.

Abstract :

this paper aims to describe the determinants of cost optimization to be useful for production and operation managers of small scale manufacturing SMEs. The proposed determinants have gathered by extensive review of manufacturing cost, production cost and SMEs literatures.  This research is based on the case studies, corporate experience, and the views of international funding agencies on SMEs. We have studied about 95 contemporary publications on the relevant area. Literature review revealed that cost optimisation of manufacturing SME depends on some internal and external factors. The internal factors are management cost, cost of labour, and size of capital investment, plant location cost, ICT cost and capability, and cost of supply chain, smooth energy cost. Manufacturing SMEs also do not follow comprehensive framework to develop their productions and operations strategies and quantify their competitiveness. The present paper has tried to identify potential cost optimisation inputs related to manufacturing operations of SMEs.
