A Long-Range Low-Power Wireless Sensor Network Based on U-LoRa Technology for Tactical Troops Tracking Systems Abstract The deployment of a LoRaWAN implemented by Thai people called Universal and Ubiquitous (U-LoRa) for an application of Internet-of-Things in tactical troop tracking systems. The proposed long-range communication system comprises only the implemented gateway using Raspberry-Pi but also an end-device using microcontroller with GPS and other sensors for geological and physical tracking. The proposed system employs four gateways with bridge-to-bridge WIFI connection for communication to the server. The end node can be integrated more than ten types of sensors such as GPS, temperature, humidity, and water sensors. All data can be visualized real-time via monitor station. The proposed system provides not only an emerging long-range communication but also low-power operation in a military campsite within 0.5 kilometers using a transmission power of 4dBi.

Proposed Tactical Troops Tracking System It is seen that a single U-LoRa gateway is exploited in the center of an investigation area. The U-LoRA End-Nodes can be as much as preferred, but there are six nodes demonstrating in this system. All the end-nodes are connected to the LoRa gateway before transmitting to the Layer2 network switch under IoT and web server. All the data will be transferred to the network before visualizing on the graphic user interface. The system can be extended to a wider range area within 5×5 kilometers. The systems can be expanded to the tactical troop tracking system with a four gateway with four point-to-point Wi-Fi bridges. Such a system could provide wider coverage. It should be noted that the gateway should be in an appropriate height in order to be capable of receiving signals from each end-nodes, and the electrical surge system should be considered and integrated in order to protect from any possible failures.

Implementations and Experimental Results Performance analysis has been tested at Thai-Nichi Institute of Technology where the gateway was installed at the 6th floor of C-building with a height of 500 meters. The coverage range has been incremented by 100 meters with actual obstacles as depicted. The performances were investigated by received signal strength indicator (RSSI), which is a measurement of the power present in a received radio signal. It should be noted that RSSI is usually expressed in dBm from 0 to approximately lowest at -120 dBm. In addition, Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) has also been investigated and is defined as the ratio of signal power to the noise power expressed.

Perspectives on Recent Advances on IoT-Based Industrial Personal Protective Equipments Abstract The PPE is a potential barrier as the final option to alleviate the effects of possible accidence. Despite accident causation and prevention techniques, motivating and controlling workers to wear PPEs requires its own efforts. Employers may address the use of PPEs in three ways, i.e. (i) education and training, (ii) incentives, and (iii) enforcement. Some operators do not prefer to wear PPEs because they either forget or find it uncomfortable to wear PPEs. Other factors involve (i) PPEs may have an impact productivity, (ii) exposure to a hazard is short and thus PPEs are not needed, and (iii) inadequate or not available education and training for using PPEs. In order to solve these issues, employers can improve the consistency of PPE use by applying best practices assisted through novel technologies. These could subsequently meet the employer's.

A Future Work on The Procosed Smart PPEs Platform Based on the reviews, it is noticeable that hazardous gas sensors or other particle matter measurements (PM2.5-10) have not been studied. In addition, Graphic User Interface (GUI) as well as data is not recoded in cloud storage. Therefore, the conceptual framework for complete smart PPE is introduced for the future work. Fig. 10 depicts the rough concept of a future work for smart PPE Platform. As illustrated in Fig.10, the life vest comprises a heart rate monitor sensor, a Gyroscope, an accelerator sensor, a motion sensor and hazardous gas sensors. The four sensors are connected to a wireless transmitter which is expected to LoRa node to send data through a cloud system in order to display on the web application with warning system and simple GUI for operators.

Commercially Avaliable Start PPEs Smart PPS by KAN-Commission for Occupational Health and Safety and Standardization Company has created smart PPS. Communication and localization devices are available in the wearer, consisting of various sensors for body functions and environmental monitoring, e.g. for fire-fighters. It has cooling and heating functions that operate only when necessary based on measured body and external temperatures. Active PPE acting as an emergency stop, for example for laser devices or chain saws when they endanger the safety of the wearer of the PPE and installed light-emitting flexible materials that provide high visibility.

Conclusion The IoT-Based industrial PPEs from both in academic and commercial point of view. The review results have revealed that most smart PPEs have sensors for real-time monitoring of operator health conditions, but realization and implementation are still in early stage. Most wearable sensors found from the reviews are gyroscope, accelerator, GPS, and those sensors for measuring body temperature and heart rate measurement. Some particular sensors are exploited for measuring Electrocardiogram, Photoplethysmogram, and Galvanic Skin Response Blood pressure. Communication modules are mostly RFID, Zigbee, and ad-hoc network in IEEE 802.15.4. Based on the reviews, it was found that hazardous gas sensors or other particle matter measurements (PM2.5-10) have not been studied. In addition, Graphic User Interface as well as data is not recoded in cloud storage.

Numerical Investigation on the Effect of Different Flow Field Designs and Number of Channels Using ANSYS FLUENT Introduction One of the key components of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) is the reactant flow field and its bipolar plate since they perform several functions affecting PEFC performance, such as keeping the reactants separate from each other, distributing them to the catalyst layer, distributing the electrons to the external circuit and also helping of water management. An improper designed flow field of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) can cause the maldistributions, resulting in the reduction of PEFC performance and lifetime. Although there are several researches investigating the effect of flow field design, the parallel in series flow fields, which are the commercial flow fields sold by Electrochem Inc., however, have received a very low attention.Thus, the in-depth investigation of the parallel in series flow field has not yet been carried out.


Model Development

Fig. 2 The model geometries created in ANSYS Workbench

Six flow field configurations in Fig. 1 were carefully selected by considering the geometric parameters affected on PEFC performance. So that this study can highlight the effect of the flow field designs and number of channels. The geometries were created on ANSYS Workbench based on the realistic geometric parameters and imported into ANSYS FLUENT to compute by using the add-on module.

Results & Discussion

In Fig. 3, numerical results showed a good agreement with experimental data. The IV performance curve of the different flow fields is displayed in Fig. 4. The results revealed that the 1S flow field provided the best performance, while the worst was found in the parallel. Although the 1S flow field was also found the best in eliminating the liquid water, as seen in Fig. 5, the pressure drop (see Fig. 6) was found extraordinary high as compared to that of the Conclusion others. Therefore, the 1S flow field was not appropriate to The 1S flow field provided the best performance and be used in a commercial scale since it requires a power to uniformity while the parallel flow field was the worst. compensate the pressure drop. The design of the PIS, which slightly increased the pressure drop, would provide a higher reactant flow The number of channels affects the small-size PEFC velocity at the corners as compared to the serpentine performance greater than the flow field designs since as the flow fields with the same number of channels, and number of channels increases, the less amount of water saturation, higher performance and pressure drop were thus, it enhanced the water removal, resulting in the found. However, the influence of designs will be greater as the better water management. This effect is greater as the number of channels increases. With the same number of number of channels increases. This result is significant channels, the PIS flow fields performed better than the and would contribute an impact to the larger cell area S flow fields as their geometry provided higher reactant PEFC that used a much more number of channels flow flow velocity (see Fig. 7). Hence, the PIS flow fields were more field to avoid the large pressure drop. preferable than the S flow fields since a flow field with a high number of channels is required in a commercial scale for a lower pressure drop.

In this study, a numerical investigation on the distributions in six different flow field designs (see Fig. 1) over 5 cm 2 PEFC has been systematically carried out using CFD techniques via ANSYS FLUENT software to study the effect of different flow field configurations and number of channels.

Design and Development of an Electric Three-wheeled Vehicle (E-Tuk Tuk) with an Efficient Battery Switching System

Introduction A Three-wheeled vehicle so-called Tuk Tuk is one of Thailand’s cultural identities. The conventional Tuk Tuk uses internal combustion engines (ICES) and releases greenhouse gases which causes the global warming. Replacing the conventional engine with an electric motor can be a promising solution to keep operating Tuk Tuk for Thai’s tourism and also reducing the pollutions. However, a major technological barrier which prevents the electric Tuk Tuk (E-Tuk Tuk) from the global commercial market is its too long recharging time, as compared with the gas refill time of the conventional Tuk Tuk. Thus, instead of recharging it, switching the battery at a service station can be a good answer solving such problem.

Research Methodology

Fig.3 E-Tuk Tuk model

Fig.6 Stress distribution of the chassis at the inclined angle of 30°

Fig.7 The finished prototype of E-Tuk Tuk

Results and Discussion The minimum contact resistance of the coppers was found to be at about 0.01 under the load more than 0.15 MPa. As a result, springs with a stiffness of 25.6 kN/m were selected to generate the required load. For the structural analysis, simulation results showed than the maximum deformation approximately 3 mm in the normal direction to the surfaces (Fig. 5). The stress distribution over the chassis at different inclined angles was also studied. Fig.6 presents the stress distribution at the inclined angle of 30°, which was considered as the critical operating condition. It was found that even at the risk areas with maximum stress, the chassis will not plastically deform since the factor of safety was higher than 1.93. For a typical use scenario of 0°, the safety factor was at least 2.33. Finally, the developed E-Tuk Tuk was experimentally tested that it can be operated safely and efficiently as its battery switching process can be done within 5 mins.

Impacts to Society or Commercials

The battery switching system was initially designed on CATIA software. To make the battery switching system easy to be operated, an idea of cell phone-alike electrical contacts was employed for power transmission from the battery to the motor. The designed electrical contact consisted of Cu plate as the electric conductor, Bakelite as the insulator, and iron plate as the supporter, as shown in Fig.1. The relationship between contact resistance and the force exerted on the contact was studied (Fig. 2) in order to determine the a proper force required to achieve minimum resistance loss. Afterward, the battery switching system was designed to attach on the Tuk Tuk chassis with a rollersupport so that it can be retrieved out of and pushed back in the Tuk Tuk easily (Fig. 3 and 4). Simulation in ANSYS software was preformed using finite element analysis (FEA) so as to analyze the strength of the E-Tuk Tuk structure under different inclined planes of 0°, 10° , 20° and 30°.

Conclusion The prototype of an E-Tuk Tuk with a battery switching system has successfully developed as the switching operation can be carried out by a single person within 5 mins, i.e, 2.23 and 2.83 mins for a male and a female, respectively. Moreover, simulation and experimental results prove that the structure of the designed E-Tuk Tuk is sufficiently strong and will not plastically deformed under daily-use conditions.

This project is the prototype of E tuk-tuk that can reduce pollution and promote Thai traditional vehicle.

A-GIS Based Potential Evaluation for Napier Grass Plantation in Thailand Introduction

Research Methodology

According to the Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP 2012-2021) initiated by the Ministry of Energy (MoE), the future power generation sourced by alternative energy resources is planned to be increased up to 25% of total power generation in the next 10 years. Among various alternative energy resources, biogas will contribute as high as 3600 MW of which 83% or 3000 MW will be produced from Napier grass. By an approximate estimation, an enormous area of 480,000 ha throughout Thailand is needed for Napier grass plantation in order to achieve the AEDP 2012-2021’s target.

The maps of land use, soil and precipitation were used in this study. Fig. 1 (b)-(d) presents an example of those 3 maps of Phrae province, respectively. The land use map was set as initial governing map by which only the areas of an abandon field, an abandon farm, a pasture, a groove wood and a lower land were considered as the usable areas for Napier Grass Plantation. By overlaying all 3 maps via ArcMAP 10.0 integrating with FAO framework of land suitability, the suitable areas were qualitatively located, as shown in Fig. 2. Finally, the multiple regression analysis was applied to the map so as to evaluate quantitatively the potential of Napier grass yield in Thailand. FAO Framework classification Table 1 The classification of geographical factors

Regression model "DMY=6.241(pH)−3.692(DN)−0.002(PC)+3.199(SF)−7.655" The authors would also like to thank GISTDA for providing the land use map and ArcGIS software as well as land development department of Thailand for the soil map. The precipitation map from HAII is also greatly appreciate.


Results & Discussion The result showed that Thailand has a usable area of 1.8 million ha with a maximum potential yield of 51 million tons/year. After the analysis was done, the most suitable area for Napier grass plantation, was in the Northern region. Although it did not contribute as the region of the largest usable area, it could provide a high amount of Napier grass yield as compared to its usable area. For example, the land suitability map of Phrae province which is in the Northern region was shown in Fig. 2.

The method of locating the suitable areas for Napier grass plantation over Thailand and its productivity estimation was successfully developed. The total usable was 1.8 million ha or approximately 3.5% of total geographical area of Thailand. It was found that most of the usable areas were in the suitability classification of rank S2. Overall, the Northern region is the most suitable while the largest usable area were located in the North-Eastern region which is approximately 45% of total usable area.

Impacts to Society or Commercials This project identify the areas which are suitable for Napier grass ,one of energy crop , plantation over the country.

Identification of Entrapped Air Void on Concrete Surface by Image Segmentation and Visualization Techniques Research Backgrounds Precast concrete panel is widely popular in Thailand for residence or condominium due to its fast construction and good surface appearance. However, entrapped air void on precast concrete panel surface is one of problems affecting appearance and durability of panel. In order to control quality of concrete product, high density of air void on concrete surface must be rejected. Normally, this process is conducted by experienced engineer’s judgement that is qualitatively and low productivity. Therefore, technique that can quantitatively measure air void area density is required.

Research Methodology Air void on concrete surface is automatically detected by image processing technique. Steps include Image segmentation of entrapped air void on concrete surface by investigating cumulative histogram to determine suitable threshold levels Advanced adaptive thresholding is conducted to minimize effect of noise on result of air void detection such as non-uniform color of concrete surface.

Results Processed result shows highlighted area of air void with different color based on their size. User can set his own criteria for allowable size of air void. Quantitative results can be reported such as average size, maximum size, area density, etc. as shown in Figure 1.


Figure 1. Original image (top) and result of proposed segmentation technique (bottom).

System Development using HTML5 and TECHTILE Toolkit Research Backgrounds We improved our class by employing tactile information in the virtual space in addition to the existing visual and auditory information. We previously described the improvement of our class and confirmation experiment results for the remote sharing of tactile information and platform generalization. We employed the TECHTILE toolkit to provide tactile information and HTML5 for the new platform. Our experiment was conducted between the Thai-Nichi Institute of Technology (TNI) in Thailand and the Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT) in Japan (Figure 1).

Figure 1 : gPBL program

System Designs and Research Methodology We employed tactile information and both visual and auditory information in the virtual space using the TECHTILE toolkit (Figure 2). The TECHTILE toolkit is a device which enables to easily design tactile feeling. The TECHTILE toolkit enables record, edit, and playback the tactile perception of material properties in digital format, and even to share tactile experiences via Internet. Current prototype of TECHTILE toolkit is composed of haptic recorder (a microphone), tactile display (vibrators), and signal amplifier that is optimized to present not only zone of audibility (20-20000Hz) but also low frequency (1-20Hz) vibration.

This project also added a few extra components to the library, for example, chart title, vertical and horizontal axis title.

Growth Trend Analysis of SET for Sustainable Investment Growth trend analysis is intended to answer two most interesting questions whether Thailand’s stock market is growing or not in general and what industry is growing or declining in particular. 9,800 daily data points of Total Return Index (TRI) of eight industries, dated back from 2012 to 2016, were collected. Multiple regression analysis, although intuitively simple technique, was able to analyze the growth trend of Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET). The percentage differences in TRI of each industry between today and next day are treated as independent variables and the SET TRI is considered as a dependent variable.

Dashboards and Pivot Tables Dashboard is a data visualization tool that provides views of the most important information (e.g., KPIs) typically organized on a single screen. It usually contains indicators and metrics that measure and monitor the different areas of a business with a particular purpose. The third figure shows a dashboard with a list box to control multiple charts to display revenue, net income and gross margin of products sold at a selected location. Pivot Table is an Excel feature that transforms countless rows and columns of data into a meaningful summary by grouping, totaling, filtering or inserting special formulas for specific calculations. Users can drag and drop fields in the pivot table to dynamically change the views. An example of a pivot table summarizes the total sales amount of different regions and markets, and uses the business segment to filter certain data. The fourth figure shows a pivot chart that interactively plots a column chart according to the data in the pivot table.
