ICT Assistive Technology for the Blind and Visually Impaired Persons

ABSTRACT This study sought to understand the role of the Internet in information provision, within the context of other sources of information and everyday information needs. The study also presents findings about the current ways in which people who are blind and visually impaired find information for their everyday lives; the role of the Internet in this process; barriers to using computers and the assistive technologies. A system was designed and created using Visual Basic studio15 to sho...

Design and Construction of a Machine for the Production of Pulverized Coal-Rice Husk Briquettes

ABSTRACT The first part was the design and construction of a machine model using wood and the second part w pulverized coal-rice husk briquettes. The dt find the different loads due to shear stress on varlous parts or the nlachlne as the materials flow during consolidation. The loads obtained were used to dimension gears, shafts and pulleys that form the power transmission system of the machine. The machine was then drawn to produce a detail dimensional model in software form using AutoCAD. A...

A Novel Approach for Power System Protection in High Voltage Power System at 132kv

ABSTRACT In this thesis, a novel approach for the protection of transmission lines which utilizes only coefficient energy for both detection and classification is proposed. The fault current signals generated by workspace on MATLAB simulation model have been analyzed using Daubechie-4 (d4) mother wavelet at 7th level decomposition with the help of Wavelet Toolbox embedded in MATLAB. A case study of 132kV, 160km transmission line has been used to test the novel approach. The value of the coeff...

Comparative Analysis of Distributed Power Control Algorithms in Cellular Network

ABSTRACT 7 Wireless Communication is one of the most active areas of technological development of our time. It covers a very wide array of applications that lead to an ever growing demand on the limited radio resources. Consequently, the need for efficient management of the limited radio resources has become imperatively a global issue. The complexity of the cellular system and the propagation channel resulted in the interference issues that degrade the system performance. Transmit power othe...

Improvement on Concurrency Control in a Distributed Database

ABSTRACT The study was conducted of the Improvement on concurrency control in a distributed database. The objectives of the study are to ensure consistent and correct transaction, efficient data collection and management and recoverability of data in a distributed database. The Mysql relational database was employed in collecting data for concurrency control protocols. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) was used in creating the use case, sequence diagram, class diagram and contract for the s...

Safety Analysis of Structural Foundations Built on Abandoned Solid Waste Sites

ABSTRACT This study adopted experimental design to investigate the suitability of abandoned solid waste site soil (ASWSS) as a foundation material for building construction. Measurements of geotechnical properties of stratified random soil samples of ASWSS and adjoining natural soil (NS) at depths 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0 and 3.5 m were obtained from six test points in Kaduna, Nigeria. The soil samples were subjected to sieve analysis, Atterberg limits (liquid limit, plastic limit, plasticity index...

Optimization and Modelling of Rice Husk Ash-Clay Soil Stabilization

ABSTRACT The over dependent on the utilization of industrially manufactured soil improving additives (cement, lime etc), have dept the cost of such stabilized soils financially high. The hitherto have continued to deter the underdeveloped and poor nations of the world from providing accessible pavement to their rural dwellers who constitute the higher percentage of their population and are mostly, agriculturally dependent. A number of researchers have studied the physical and chemical propert...

DC MOTOR SPEED CONTROL USING MOBILE PHONE

ABSTRACT The DC motor speed control system using mobile phone is a device used for controlling the speed of a DC motor. It is powered electrically to vary the speed of a DC motor. This project makes use of dial tone multi frequency (DTMF) decoder after being powered to pick the key pad tones from the GSM phone, encode the tone in binary code to the programmed microcontroller which decodes the binary code and executes the speed control of the DC motor. The speed of the motor depends on the num...

Design and Construction of Enhanced Security Door

ABSTRACT  Security is one thing human should not joke with, especially in today’s world where crime is at a higher rate. One of the ways of providing security is the introduction of security doors in houses, companies, offices and warehouses. Security doors may prevent or control entry or exit, or they may be merely decorative. Larger doors can be used for a whole building, such as a castle or fortified town, or the actual doors that block entry through the gatehouse. Today many doors are ...

Construction of Digital Fuel Level Indicator

ABSTRACT               Today in this digitalized world, if the fuel indicator in the automobiles is also made digital it will help to know the exact amount of fuel available in the fuel tank. The above furnished fact is considered in our project and we found out a proper solution for indicating the accurate availability of fuel in the tank digitally. An ultrasonic transmitter and receiver is used to find out the fuel level which is economic and also accurate. The added Feature in this ...

Design and Construction of Automatic College Bell with Announcement System

This device takes over the task of Ringing of the Bell in Colleges. It replaces the Manual Switching of the Bell in the College. It has an Inbuilt Real Time Clock (DS1307 /DS 12c887) which tracks over the Real Time. When this time equals to the Bell Ringing time, then the Relay for the Bell is switched on. The Bell Ringing time can be edited at any Time, so that it can be used at Normal Class Timings as well as Exam Times. The Real Time Clock is displayed on LCDt display. The Microcontroller ...

Intelligent Emergency Light for the Security Lighting of an Industrial Layout

ABSTRACT Artificial intelligence is the study of computer or microcontrollers ability to perform task which is currently done by human. For instance, when there is an outage of a certain power supply in a particular illuminating lighting device. In that case intelligence emergency light is an electronic circuit that controls automatically the security lighting of an industrial layout according to the ambient level of lighting. In the field of security, security lighting is often used as a pre...

Overview of Digitally Controlled Light Dimmer

ABSTRACT     A digitally controlled light dimmer circuit is based on the principle of power control using thyristor. The switch enables light from an electric bulb to be raised from full brilliance down or up to a high range of luminance.       Owning to its construction, adequate conservation of energy is achieved.  The circuit is made in various patterns depending on the manufacturer. Some have a rotary knob; some have milled edged control while others have a depressing switch or side...

Low Cost DC Motor Speed Control System Using Microcontroller Logic Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) Controller

ABSTRACT This seminar focuses on a low cost DC motor speed control system using a microcontroller logic pulse-width modulation [pwm] controller to control brushless DC Motor. In a digital controller of brushless DC Motor, the control accuracy is of a high level, and it has a fast response time. Here a microcontroller of 8-bit type (80CL580) will be used as the systems core controller in other to acquire an accurate logic control algorithm. The DC motor speed control has found vast application...
