Design and Development of Low-Cost, Highly Stable Regulated High-Voltage Power Supply for Radiation Detector

By Md. Rajibur Rahaman Khan Shin Won Kang

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2015

In this paper we design and develop a highly stable and low cost regulated DC power supply for Geiger Müller (GM) Counter/detector. A regulated high voltage power supply is an important power source to bias gas-discharge tubes, X-ray tubes, and radiation detectors etc. A highly stabilized regulated 575 volts DC power supply was developed using the pulse width modulation (PWM) control technique from a 5 volt supply. It is specially designed for biasing GM detector for the area radiation monitor. The output high voltage can be adjusted at any suitable value by adjusting the preset potentiometer.

A Survey on Facial Expression Recognition Technology and Its Use in Virtual Systems

By Haleema Inam Asma Malik Marina Hayat Aliya Ashraf

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2015

Human Facial expressions are the most expressive way to display their non verbal emotions. Human can easily detect and interpret faces to understand the emotions of the person in front of them. An important aspect of facial expression recognition is its implementation in the virtual domain. Different apps for auto-face recognition can be an important factor for the growth of components of natural human-machine interfaces. Many attempts are made from few years for the development of automated systems for which will detect human face expressions and in turn their moods. This paper gives a survey over the expertise used for human moods detection and recognition of facial expression recently.

Inverse Kinematics of Redundant Manipulator using Interval Newton Method

By Virendra Kumar Soumen Sen S.S. Roy S.K Das S.N.Shome

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2015

The paper presents an application of Interval Newton method to solve the inverse kinematics and redundancy resolution of a serial redundant manipulator. Such inverse problems are often encountered when the manipulator link lengths, joint angles and end-effector uncertainty bounds are given, which occurs due to because of inaccuracies in joint angle measurements, manufacturing tolerances, link geometries approximations, etc. The inverse kinematics of three degree of freedom planar redundant positioning manipulator without end-effector has been evaluated using the manipulability of Jacobian matrix as performance metric. To solve the nonlinear equation of inverse kinematics, the multidimensional Newton method is used. The inverse kinematics is intended to produce solutions for joint variables in interval of tolerances for specified end effector accuracy range. As exemplar problem solving, a planar 3-degrees-of-freedom serial link redundant manipulators is considered.
