Abstract— The Wireless Sensors Network (WSN) is an emergent technology resulting from progress of various fields. Many applications of networks WSN are developed. In the last years, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have gained increasing attention from both the research community and actual users. As sensor nodes are generally battery-powered devices, the critical aspects to face concern how to reduce the energy consumption of nodes, so that the network lifetime can be extended to reasonable times. As sensor networks are deployed in adversarial environments and used for critical applications. In this paper, we consider routing security in wireless sensor networks. Many sensor network routing protocols have been proposed, but very few of them have been designed with security as a goal. We propose security goals for routing in sensor networks. We describe crippling attacks against all of them and suggest counter measures and design considerations.

Murtadha G. Kadhim, Samir J. Mohammed, and Ali Al-Sherbaz

Abstract— The development of monitoring systems of healthcare on the basis of WSN has seen a significant increase on a large scale in previous years. These systems are more prevalent because of the importance of human life and the provision of appropriate technologies to be applied. Therefore it must be appropriate to the requirements of healthcare. In this paper, a real- time healthcare monitoring system based on WSN is designed. The system senses and displays ECG, SPO2, Heart Rate (HR), Breathing, respiratory rate, Blood pressure and temperature of a patient. A new algorithm is developed in this paper to measure a respiratory rate from breathing (Airflow sensor). The system features a friendly GUI in base station which is easy to use, and very simple to administer by a specialist doctor. The network technology, which is used in the system is a star topology with wireless ZigBee protocol. In base station, LabVIEW software and Visual studio 2012 are used to do tasks such as a processing, monitoring, graphical user interface, reporting, and alarming. The aim of this paper is to design a real time healthcare monitoring and alarming system using WSN for sensing breathing, ECG, temperature, SPO2, and blood pressure through Zigbee protocol.

Abstract—Radio frequency identification system technology is employed in this proposed security system in order to create high level of accuracy as possible. Whereas the accuracy is considered as a heart of system because any simple error may lead to breach whole security system. Beside the accuracy we should close all the expected Illegals methods which could be exploited for illegal entry. Our solution represented by eight main stages, the first stage consists of embedding the ID into a tag and assigning the same to a car. The second stage is reading the IDs from the RFID tags in the reading range. The third stage is checking from the matched tags. The fourth stage involve take the decision about open the gate. In the fifth stage the camera capture a photo of the car and save it with the date of entry. The sixth stage involves opening gate and change the traffic light to green color. The seventh stage is checking the under gate arm area by using loop detector sensor. In the final stage change the traffic light to red and close the gate. 


Regulating the Prime Confabulation System in India - Challenges in the Telecom Sector [Full Text]

Bharat Kumar SIngh and Ashish Kumar 

Abstract—This paper presents an analysis of the regulatory challenges and opportunities in the telecommunication sector in India. Comprising the largest emerging market economies, the telecommunications system in the country has attracted an enormous amount of research attention. India continued to operate under the colonial legacy of the Indian Telegraph Act 1885, with telecoms remaining under the exclusive domain of the state until the mid 1990s. Monopolies tend to restrict output, charge unnecessarily high tariffs, operate with bureaucracy and inefficiency and enjoy vast power. Liberalization can mitigate the undesirable characteristics and if wide spread competition can be developed and maintained conditionally, it can be expected to provide demonstrably superior results. The government launched several reform measures one on one in telecommunications in the last decade. The era of 1991 demonstrated the outcome where the telecommunications sector expanded exponentially as a result of these measures. In 1972, the country had only a million telephone lines; by 1996 it had more than 14 million, by 2000 more than 25 million and by June 2002 more than 41 million. Such was the dilation of the reformative measures that were adopted. The paper probes around the events through which the telecommunication sector has taken its shape from the coalesce work of regulatory and competition policies.
