Asset Tracking:


In today's competitive business environment, transportation is no longer simply a method of
transporting goods, but rather the most vital element in effectively managing and operating the supply chain. Top tier companies have realized that an average of 6% to 10% of revenue is being spent on transportation services. Therefore, these same companies are making major investments in transportation services optimization to reduce cost, improve levels of service, and gain competitive advantage.

The pressure to stay competitive and profitable in this new environment is enormous. A dynamic marketplace is pushing for profitable business strategies driven by several key factors, including alliance expansion and integration, aging infrastructure, consolidation, cost containment, and yield pressure.

Transportation is the glue that holds the supply chain together. With its increased difficulty and growing expense, significant benefits can be achieved by investing in programs to better understand, manage and control overall transportation spending. This is where opportunities in the value chain are most rewarding. Companies that invest in transportation sourcing programs that improve their transportation management practices will undoubtedly generate strategic benefits for themselves and their supply chain partners, enabling them to reduce costs, improve service, and increase their competitive position in the marketplace.

Vehicle Tracking:

Vehicle Tracking Systems are electronic devices that enable vehicle owners or third parties to track the location of a vehicle or cargo. Using GPS to allow for easy and accurate location of the vehicle, vehicle information can be viewed on electronic maps via the Internet or tracking software. Vehicle tracking systems have also become increasingly popular in consumer vehicles as a theft prevention and retrieval device. Police can simply follow the signal emitted by the tracking system and locate the stolen vehicle. As an added bonus, the existence of vehicle tracking device is said to lower insurance cost since the risk of no recovery theft dramatically decreases.

Types of GPS Tracking systems:

GPS Data loggers:


With a
GPS Data Logger you can place a device on the car it will record locations as the car drives around. You can then retrieve the device later and connect it to your PC to read the data.


- The advantage of a data logger is very detailed report at a low cost with no monthly fees.
- The disadvantage is that you can not find our where a car is or has been until it returns and you retrieve the device.


This is a good solution to monitor the driving behavior of a teen or employee over the past few days or weeks but will not help you find a missing car.


Real-Time GPS Tracking System:


A
Real-Time GPS Tracking System has a built-in connection to the internet so you can log-on and see where the device is and check most current location as well as the history from anywhere in the world.

Facial Recognition Systems:


A facial recognition system is a computer-driven application for automatically identifying a person from a digital image. It does that by comparing selected facial features in the live image and a facial database. It is typically used for security systems and can be compared to other
biometrics such as fingerprint or eye iris recognition systems.

Human face detection is a challenging but interesting problem since the appearance of human faces on digital (still) images strongly depends on the person's emotional state, gender, age, ethnic group and even the quality of the digital devices. The aim of this work is to implement an effective system to locate upright frontal faces on monochromatic images with use of a neural network-based classifier. 


The idea of using neural networks in the task of human face detection is derived from the observation that human faces on digital images stand out for a class of well structural objects. There is a number of works applying expert's knowledge on some characteristics of human faces (in the form of rules) to locate faces. The drawback of these methods is the need to express expert’s knowledge in an effective way (whatever this term means) and to choose the characteristics which are really important for the detecting process. Neural networks with its ability of learning can be used to extract these characteristics from a set of examples (in this case there are two sets: a set of face patterns -commonly mentioned as the set of positive samples - and the set of nonface patterns also called negative samples). After the process of learning the structural properties of human faces should be hidden in neural networks in the form of the weights if its connections.

To locate all faces with different sizes at all possible positions the system iteratively scales the input image  and at each iteration aims to detect faces with an approximate size of 20x20 pixels. The system's architecture is quite similar to one developed by Face Group at CMU. The difference of my system from it and many others using similar strategy is that it involves a pre-locating module which eliminates regions of the input image where it is judged to contains no face (of 20x20 pixels size).  After applying this pre-locating process, each individual (20x20 pixels) piece of the remained regions is analyzed separately.

Intrusion Detection Systems:


Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) attempt to identify computer system and network intrusions and misuse by gathering and analyzing data. IDSs have traditionally been developed to detect intrusions and misuse for wired systems and networks. More recently, IDSs have been developed for use on wireless networks. These wireless IDSs can monitor and analyze user and system activities, recognize patterns of known attacks, identify abnormal network activity, and detect policy violations for WLANs. Wireless IDSs gather all local wireless transmissions and generate alerts based either on predefined signatures or on anomalies in the traffic. 


A Wireless IDS is similar to a standard, wired IDS, but has additional deployment requirements as well as some unique features specific to WLAN intrusion and misuse detection. 


Wireless intrusion detection systems:


Wireless IDSs can be purchased through a vendor or developed in-house. There are currently only a handful of vendors who offer a wireless IDS solution - but the products are effective and have an extensive feature set. Popular wireless IDS solutions include Air defense Rogue Watch and Air defense Guard, and Internet Security Systems Real secure Server sensor and wireless scanner products. A homegrown wireless IDS can be developed with the use of the Linux operating system, for example, and some freely available software. Open source solutions include Snort-Wireless and WIDZ, among others.

Smart Buildings:


Smart building systems encompass many diverse issues involving many building concept from sustainable building design in exploring the regional characteristics associated with climate and making a building more energy efficient, to looking at strategies for the selection and use of alternative energy resources. These systems offer many key advantages. Contained within this integrated building approach is a method for analyzing the building's cost over the life of the building. Today's smart building systems are competitively priced when compared to more traditional building approaches and offer substantial savings in terms of lower operating cost over the life cycle of the building.


Today's building controls are rapidly moving into the open systems world, much like the computer systems industry has done for the last 20 years. New products, new technologies, new ways of integrating core-building systems are empowering building owners and managers. Systems are becoming more efficient, more cost effective, and more open. At the forefront of this revolution is an open systems platform for the development and deployment of intelligent building control systems. Cost and comfort: this is the bottom line on building control systems. Are my tenants comfortable in their workplace and what is the cost involved in providing that comfort? If I can reduce my costs by putting in a better control system, and my tenants are happy, then I have accomplished my goal. So how do I reduce the costs associated with my building systems? One sure-fire way is to install a smart building control system. What will this control system do for me? Just about anything you can imagine. Today's control system's integrators can connect just about any of the buildings sub-systems in to one completely integrated system. Where in the past you might have had one closed system for your HVAC, another for lighting, another for security, another for elevator control, etc., today all of these systems can work together in one interoperable control system. Think of this in relation to the computer industry over the past few decades. There used to be islands of computational horsepower; large universities and corporations had their own closed computer networks. Today, with the advent of Ethernet, TCP/IP and the Internet, most computers around the world can be linked together. The same can happen in a building control environment. Each sub-system device can be part of a larger control network.

Imagine the simple application of a person entering a building at the start of the workday and all of the sub-systems that need to be activated. As this worker enters the front door and swipes their passkey, the security system determines a valid pass card and logs that person’s presence in the building. He proceeds to the bank of elevators and pushes the up button, enters the elevator, and selects his floor. Next he enters his office and turns on the lights. If the room is too cool or too hot, he might adjust the temperature via a thermostat on the wall. Next he turns on his computer and downloads his email from the company server.

In older building systems, none of these control systems have any interaction with each other. But with today's smart systems, this building could react in a much smarter way. By tying the various systems together there would be a very different sequence of event. Upon a valid security card being verified by the security system, other building systems and devices are put into action. First the bank of elevators is notified that this person is entering the lobby and a car is sent to that floor. His office environment is notified that he is in the building and the temperature controls are adjusted to meet his specific needs.

The lights are turned on to his presets, his computer is turned on and his email is downloaded. He walks up to the elevator and enters the car that is awaiting him. The car automatically knows which floor he is going to (and which he his not allowed to). Upon entering his office the lights are on, the temperature is perfect, and his email is waiting. If adjustments are needed, an icon on his computer desktop will allow modification to the environmental controls. No more thermostats on the wall; more precise control. Now if that first cup of coffee where there on his desk, he's all set (and that is possible too with a network coffee maker no joke, it's here now!).

So what are the pieces of the puzzle to make this all happen? Smart devices that communicate on an intelligent distributed control network. Much like Ethernet enabled computers to share information with each other, Our Systems enable devices to share control information with each other. Our enabled device's can share its control data with any other device on the network. In our example, the security card reader can share that mister X is in the building by sending a network variable to others that would be interested, the lighting controller in his office, the climate controls in his office, the power station, etc. Each device has its own intelligence and can respond to events on the network. Sensors “publish” information and actuators subscribe to information, all without the requirement for big host computers. In fact, many control systems run completely by small, low cost “nodes” or devices on the network. Integration is the key. Qualified system integrators now have the capability to integrate cross discipline components into one interoperable system. The proximity sensor from the lighting system can publish information to the HVAC system. Upon entry into a room, the lights come on, the air turns on, and the security system logs occupancy. Different devices, from different manufactures are integrated and logically connected or “bound” together to create the desired control strategy. How the systems functions is really up to the imagination and skill of the integrator. The Kenzi platform enables control system integrators to deploy systems with devices from many different manufacturers into a single flat, open, interoperable system.

The core elements of a control system include:


- The nodes or devices The sensors and actuators such as a thermostat, wall switch, air handler, variable speed drive, power meter, etc.
- The channel the physical wire devices are attached to
- The protocol the language the devices use to communicate with each other
- Routers used to extend the length and segment the network of devices.
 


Figure above shows typical control system architecture with a series of nodes connected to a channel, connected to a backbone. In this example, there are 5 channels in this system, one for the backbone and one channel for each floor of a four story building. This architecture allows any device to talk to any other device in a peer-to-peer fashion without any host, zone, or master controllers. Each device has the built-in intelligence required to make decisions about its control functions.

Open systems and intelligent buildings are here now, being installed around the world today. Year over year this adoption and acceptance of open systems using Kenzi is growing rapidly. For your next building project, consider the advantages of open systems; consider the initial cost savings combined with the life cycle cost savings. Future proof your building control systems make them smart, make them open, you will be grateful you did.


Benefits:


Smart building system technologies have provided the tools for architects and engineers in improving the decision-making process. They also provide faster throughput on design plans and eliminate waste due to error. In turn, these systems provide the owners and design firms the tools needed to build more energy efficient buildings at substantially lower cost. Other benefits include improving occupant's health, comfort, and productivity while reducing air pollution.
