Enhanced DNA Cryptography for Wireless Body Sensor Networks

A Wireless Body Sensor Network (WBSN), is a network of sensors that worn or deployed on a person's body. This network plays an important role in medical field, where it allocates the vital information from the body and transmit it wirelessly to a central station to process it.We need to provide security and privacy for sent data because of the sensitivity of this information. In this paper, we propose an enhanced DNA cryptography technique that depending on nucleotides relationship concept to generate a data encrypted stream represent the sensors allocated data, so the intruder will not be able to modify this data while he is not knowing the technique of encryption, which provides a secure and private data transmission.

Reducing Energy Consumption in WBSNs using Statistic Test to detect Duplicated Data

Duplication and redundancy in WBSNs refer to collect the same vital signs, using sensor attached on the patient body, over a period of time. Transmitting duplicated and similar data well consume the sensor battery faster, and increase the traffic in the network. Therefore, in this paper, we introduce a lightweight technique to detect duplicates data, using statistic test to identify the similarity between the data. Then preventing the sensor from sending this duplicated data,which leads to increase the lifetime of the sensor, and reduce energy consumption.

Controlling a Wheelchair Using Human-Computer Interaction

In this paper, a prototype of an interactive wheelchair for quadriplegics and amputees is presented. Quadriplegics are people who are the victims of partial or complete paralysis of both upper and lower limbs; this is often the cause of a spinal cord injury or a disease in the area around the neck. The design presented in this paper is based on the field of Human-Computer Interaction, in which the face features of the quadriplegic are used to give him/her the opportunity to realize his/her needs. The face gestures are transformed to electrical signals using python programming language and the well-known OpenCv library for image processing. Signals are furthermore transmitted to an Arduino Uno microcontroller, which gives the orders to the wheelchair to move according to the patient’s wish. The design was evaluated and the results were analysed.

Comparison of several digital techniques for electroencephalography processing.

Most biological signals, whether they are muscle signals, brain signals or voice commands, are
random and unending in their initial form. They are processed and filtered from the noise in the
first stage and then classified, analyzed and extracted the required features of it in the second stage.
In this study, the brain signals of a healthy person were captured according to a clinical protocol
prepared for the purpose of the study, which is two consecutive blinks separated by 5 seconds rest
and then a set of digital filters were used to analyze and classify these signals in order to obtain
control from them.

Comparative study of maximum likelihood and spectral angle mapper algorithms used for automated detection of melanoma

Melanoma is a leading fatal illness responsible for 80% of deaths from skin cancer. It originates in the pigment-producing melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis. Melanocytes produce the melanin (the dark pigment), which is responsible for the color of skin. As all cancers, melanoma is caused by damage to the DNA of the cells, which causes the cell to grow out of control, leading to a tumor, which is much more dangerous if it cannot be found or detected early. Only biopsy can determine exact malformation diagnosis, although it can rise metastasizing. When a melanoma is suspected, the usual standard procedure is to perform a biopsy and to subsequently analyze the suspicious tissue under the microscope.
