GSM based Monitoring and Control of Systems

By Saima Maqbool Sajaad Ahmed Lone

DOI:, Pub. Date: 26 Jul. 2015

In this paper we have proposed a method to make a base for the monitoring and Control of systems. The monitoring and Control of systems could be from monitoring of movements in any particular area to the monitoring of any external electrical, mechanical device. Every person is pocketed with the cell. So, taking the advantage of the same we developed the system for the monitoring and Control system using GSM technology. This will provide the owner, manager of the system to know about the working or any kind of default in the system. Also the system is controlled which is needed in special circumstances and is be implemented with the help of complete circuitry which is a different module (DTMF module) has a specific code as input through GSM encoder that is processed by decoder circuitry of our system. The goal is to find an improvement over the previous surveillance systems .The maintainability of the new and improved is quite efficient as it is easy to handle it by simple software demo. The facilities provided by it such as easy handling, a secrecy support, an immediate action are granted. A prototype is built in the Windows platform using C# to demonstrate the functioning of the entire system.

A Secure Framework for Discovering the Liabilities of a Network Server

By Ulya Sabeel Saima Maqbool

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Dec. 2014

The role of network and information systems is increasing in our day today infrastructures that provide critical services like banking and commerce applications, telecommunications, distribution, transportation, etc. This increases the levels of dependability on such applications, which brings about several pros and cons as well. If these infrastructures are damaged, it can compromise the availability of the critical services. Thus, it is the need of the hour to secure the available network and information systems from malicious attacks. In this paper, we have proposed a secure technique named as Network Liability Detection (NLD) and a software we named as Network Liability Tool (NLT), that points out the liabilities or vulnerabilities of your system that can be exploited to compromise its security. We propose a model based approach where the behavior of each component of the system is carefully monitored to find out the well known as well as as-yet-unknown loopholes in the system. A prototype of the application is built in Windows Platform using Java, to demonstrate the entire functioning of this system and helps in solving the security related loopholes in the network servers. The speculative results affirm that the proposed technique is effective in detecting the liabilities of the network servers.

ERPWS: An Energy Efficient Routing Protocol for Conductive Sensor based Water Level Monitoring and Control System using Zigbee and 74HC14 Inverter

By Saima Maqbool Nidhi Chandra Shivraj Dagadi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jun. 2013

In this paper we have shown how to use conductive sensor, Zigbee and 74HC14 Inverter to monitor the water level and to control the working of pump. This project is designed to automatically fill the over head tank when it gets empty and monitor the water level in it. The motor is switched ON when the water level in the overhead tank drops below a pre fixed low level (on point) and puts off the motor when water level rises up to pre fixed high level (off point).The motor is also switched off during the following conditions: when the sump water is exhausted before filling overhead tank, pump running dry, mains voltage fluctuations. We also introduce an energy efficient routing protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks (ERPWS) for Conductive Sensor based Water Level Monitoring and Control System using Zigbee (XBEE 802.15.4) in terms of energy consumptions, the packet loss ratio, network lifetime and the average delivery delay. The XBEE used here is XBEE Pro Series 1(XBP24-AWI-001) and IC used is 74HC14 Hex Inverting Schmitt trigger. Simulation results have been obtained by using NS2 simulator. The evaluation results show that the energy consumption of routing using ERPWS is significantly lower than LEACH and traditional routing protocols.
