This paper provides a comparative overview of urban transport in the world's two most populous countries: China and India. Cities in both countries are suffering from severe and worsening transport problems: air pollution, noise, traffic injuries and fatalities, congestion, parking shortages, energy use, and a lack of mobility for the poor. The urban(More)
Indian cities face a transport crisis characterized by levels of congestion, noise, pollution, traffic fatalities and injuries, and inequity far exceeding those in most European and North American cities. India's transport crisis has been exacerbated by the extremely rapid growth of India's largest cities in a context of low incomes, limited and outdated(More)
This paper presents an approach for the personal authentication using rank-level fusion of multispectral palmprints, instead of using multiple biometric modalities and multiple matchers. The rank level fusion involving the non linear combination of hyperbolic tangent functions gives the best recognition rate for the Rank 1 obtained from two types of(More)
This paper presents an approach for finger knuckle print (FKP's) authentication using DAISY descriptor on different knuckle combinations. Score level fusion is applied on scores of features extracted from FKPs. An improved identification rate is achieved after fusion as compared to that from the individual knuckle print. There has also been a little effort(More)
Teleteaching systems have proved to be a useful tool in imparting distance education. Various Teleteaching systems have been put to use so far. In this paper, we present a requirement analysis for this widely used system. We propose a goal oriented approach to requirement analysis based on Tropos specification. This approach analyses the system from two(More)

In this paper, palmprint based authentication is presented. The palmprint image is acquired using an acquisition system developed at IIT Delhi. The Region of interest (ROI) is extracted from the palmprint image by finding a tangent of curves between fingers. The perpendicular bisector of this tangent divides the rectangular area enclosing the palmprint into(More)
The today's world relies heavily over the applications, such as e-commerce, which are using the multicast communications, carried out over the insecure channel like internet, henceforth, the need for secure group communication is realized. The secure group communication helps in transmitting data in such a way that only the members of the group are able to(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of frailty in patients with chronic lung diseases. METHODS We studied 120 patients with chronic lung disease using Fried's criteria (gait speed, weight loss, exhaustion, grip strength, and physical activity). RESULTS The study population (56% women) had a mean age of 64 ± 13 years, mean body mass index of 31± 9(More)
