Mumps is a vaccine-preventable disease that usually occurs as a self-limiting parotitis, but it can also lead to several life-threatening complications, including pancreatitis, meningitis, and encephalitis. The molecular epidemiology of the virus is poorly understood. The present study describes an outbreak of mumps virus infection in Punjab, India. The(More)
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important hospital-acquired pathogen in healthcare centres worldwide. The strain characteristics vary widely from country to country, although some strains have the propensity to spread globally. E-MRSA 15 and 16 have been established as epidemic strains in the UK and Europe. MRSA is widely prevalent(More)
Most of the rural parts of India are affected by frequent power cuts and abnormal voltage ratios. A hybrid generation system consist photovoltaic (PV), wind turbine (WT) and Battery is presented to supply stable power to rural residential loads. DC/DC converters are used to control the power flow to the load and Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT) is used(More)
Decision making tool called Decision Making Tool for Identification of Optimal Location in Aqua farming development was developed using Visual Basic programming language for identification of optimal location for aquaculture farming development. Twenty-four input criteria to the tool were categorized into six broad heads of main-criteria namely: water (10(More)
The problem of tracking a moving object on natural scenes has received much attention using passive acquisition vision systems and computationally intense image processing. In this paper we present a simple active tracking system using a laser diode, steering gear box setup and a photoresistor, which is capable of acquiring two dimensional coordinates in(More)
Intelligent Video Surveillance allows users to easily monitor the secure areas with surveillance cameras, and thus eliminating the need for manual work and saves the huge monitoring costs. A novel method for object tracking, based on image segmentation is proposed to automatically recognize activities around restricted area to improve safety and security of(More)
This paper propose a new design and analysis of MEMS sensor array based on thermal stress and electric current properties. The COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3 software is used to design the sensor array of the sensing layer. The material selection is done based on the thermal analysis of the sensor array. The polysilicon yield a maximum displacement of 0.00143μm(More)
Cochlear Implants are widely accepted prosthetic devices that improve the hearing ability of people with profound hearing loss. The cochlear implant speech processor is responsible for decomposing the input sound into different frequency bands and delivering the most appropriate pattern to the electrodes. The performance of the cochlear prostheses depends(More)
