ABSTRACT: It obvious to all people the importance of water as an essential element for the life, so the water loss is a life-threatening and alarming predictor of the future. Leakage problem is one of the most important causes of water loss in water systems, therefore it was and still a matter of attention of many researchers in search of the most effective methods to solve this problem using many techniques varied with one another in terms of accuracy, cost and speed of obtaining results. This research paper refers to ongoing extensive research work to develop a new geospatial approach to detect leaks in water distribution networks, and reviews a summary for field data collection procedures and modeling analysis within the field case study that has been done to validate the approach referred to.

ABSTRACT: The Real time scheduling is Defined as a Systems whose correctness depends on their temporal aspects as well as their functional aspects. In this paper some characteristics and limitation of operating design in wireless sensor network are discussed. The TinyOS has been designed to run on a generalized architecture where a single CPU is shared between application and protocol processing. TinyOS is a component based operating system designed to run in resource constrained wireless devices. It provides highly efficient communication primitives and fine-grained concurrency mechanisms to application and protocol developers. A key concept in TinyOS is the use of event based programming in conjunction with a highly efficient component model. in this paper we mainly discussced about message scheduling and scheduling strategy for sensor network O.S &we analyzed the system architecture of TinyOS, FIFO scheduling TinyOS, task mechanism and event-driven mechanism.The Key characteristics for a real-time system are reliability (stability),predictability(it must be deterministic),performance (the faster the better),compactness to code size (space is money) and scalability.

ABSTRACT: PES Institute of Technology along with five other institutions is developing a student imaging satellite. This serves students as a platform to understand and work with advanced space technologies. In this student satellite, we use the approach of component-based software methodology to code and test the software components. In this methodology, all the components are developed as independent components and then are integrated under On Board Computer (OBC) software. OBC is a custom built board centered on the processor where student satellite software runs in the OBC. This paper reports the testing methodology we are using and test cases generation for On Board Computer software of student satellite. These test cases are used to assure the functional correctness of OBT software components of the student satellite.

ABSTRACT: In accession to the growing use and complexity of the software in safety critical automotive systems, the testing for its safety violation became more imperative. This necessitated the development of an automated parser tool for the software of the automotive system in order to ensure its safety. This tool is developed with intent to verify and validate whether the automobile system software which is developed using the C programming language have followed the coding rules and guidelines. These rules are drawn through the international standards which are in relation to the safety of the automobile system and the MISRA-C standards. This paper provides a concrete idea about the development of the parser tool with the supportive architecture, design of the coding rules and the test results.

ABSTRACT: PES Institute of Technology along with five other institutions is developing a nano-satellite for capturing images of the earth. The project is intended for students to understand and work with advanced space technologies. The satellite is built around subsystems such as, Attitude Control System, Electrical Power System and Mechanical Systems. The data distribution is handled by an On Board Computer (OBC) system which is interfaced to all the subsystems. On Board Computer is a microprocessor board where satellite software is executed. The OBC, after internal processing of satellite telemetry parameters sends the telemetry information using S-band transponder to the ground station. The telemetry information is received by a computer system through the ground station setup for receiving the satellite data. This paper, discusses the development of software which is used in the satellite control centre for carrying out TTC operations of satellite. The data is presented to the spacecraft operational personnel using graphics tools for further analysis of the spacecraft health. The design of ground station software is presented in this paper. We use the approach of component-based software methodology.

Abstract: Policies regarding maintaining domestic energy costs have been a menacing problem politically and economically within the Arab countries, as well as within other parts of the world. Many objectives have been put forward to assist with energy conservation. Of these objectives, there have been discussions about expanding residents access to energy sources, which will protect income strapped households; fostering the industrial growth of the energy sector, equally providing each individual with an allotted amount of energy that they are permitted to utilize, as well as enforcing that countries that are rich when it comes to natural gas and oil resources, renting out their resource to other countries that do not have the luxury of these two energy sources. Even though energy subsidies have been established as a means to distribute energy, this paper argues that distributing energy in this fashion is costly and an inefficient process of energy distribution. Energy subsidies contort the price of energy sources for their own personal gain, and not for the gain of the people that require the source but have no means to attain it. Energy subsidies do not render any benefits for median or low income households. Instead, the households that reap the benefits of energy subsidies are high income households and industries. Which high income households and larger corporations are benefiting from paying lower costs for their energy consumption, while households that are struggling to get by are being forced to chip away at the little scraps that they do have. However, despite all of the disadvantages of energy subsidies, they continue to play an important part in the safety net for poor individuals throughout the Arab world and all across the globe. Any attempts to eliminate the subsidies will lead to an absence in compensatory programmes that could in the end cause a further decline of the welfare of households and eliminate the competitive edge that certain industries possess. The only way that a successful reform can be attempted is if the government steps in and compensates the population benefiting from the energy subsidies, while reducing its influence through carefully planned mitigation techniques that will protect the poorest households while also assisting the economy to learn to adapt without the subsidies in place. Our argument is that reforming the way that energy is priced in the Arab world will prove to be beneficial from many different perspectives, offering potential avenues that can be taken to lead the reform. This paper recognizes the current political climate throughout the region will proclaim that domestic reform of the present energy prices will be a difficult process, the reform will need to be taken on as a medium to long-term endeavor in order for everyone to reap the benefits.
