- AKAP-IoV: Facilitating an intelligent transportation infrastructure October 27, 2022
Intelligent transport systems embedded with latest technology is the future of automotive industry and can revolutionise the very infrastructure and architecture of transportation. The principles of intelligent transportation systems have manifested in the development of Internet of vehicles (IoV), a novel technological network that enables autonomous and connected mobile commutation facility. Dr Sriramulu Bojjagani, Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, has published a paper on this seminal topic titled “Secure Authentication and Key Management Protocol for Deployment of Internet of Vehicles (IoV) Concerning Intelligent Transport Systems” in the prestigious journal, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transport Systems (Q1 journal) having an Impact factor of 9.551. The paper highlights the development and significance of the pioneering AKAP-IoV system in successfully tackling cyber threats and security vulnerabilities.
Intelligent transport systems amalgamated with advanced technologies are an important element of the automotive industry, including critical infrastructure and transportation. Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is the modern technological framework designed for intelligent transportation. IoV creates a network of information relations among vehicles, thus contributing to reduced congestion, roadside infrastructure, driver/traveller safety, and traffic efficiency through wireless communication and sensing technology. However, a significant challenge in IoV applications is security, as criminals could potentially exploit these applications. Despite increasing industry awareness, the potential danger posed by security vulnerabilities and cyber threats remains high. In this study, we have designed a new system called AKAP-IoV, which supports secure communication, mutual authentication, and key management among vehicles, roadside units, and fog and cloud servers. AKAP-IoV was tested and verified using Scyther and Tamarin to ensure its resistance to cyber threats. Furthermore, we conducted a formal security analysis using the Real-or-Random (RoR) oracle model to assess security properties logically. In addition, a detailed, comprehensive comparative study was considered to evaluate the performance, functionality, efficiency, and security features supported by AKAP-IoV compared to those of recently developed schemes.Continue reading →
- Study on C and N dynamics in response to climate change October 25, 2022
Tropical forests are the breathing lungs of the world that work as a collective to stabilise climate by absorbing vast amounts of carbon dioxide. Covering over 12% of Earth’s total land surface. It functions as a harbour for evolution and supplying prerequisite rainfall for healthy vegetation. Recent global climate changes have catalysed drastic effects on the tropical forests and the healthy functioning of the same. A critical understanding of the present state of forest ecosystems is crucial for undertaking necessary measures to prevent further degradation.
Recently, the project entitled Assessment and modelling of carbon and nitrogen dynamics in tropical forests of Eastern Ghats, Andhra Pradesh in response to climate change, has been sanctioned to Dr Javid Ahmad D, Assistant Professor, Department of Environmental Science by DST – SERB (Science and Engineering Research Board), Govt of India, with a total outlay of Rs. 28.54 lakhs. Dr Javid Ahmad D is the principal investigator of the project.
A complete dataset on long-term dynamics in vegetation, the C and N generated for different tropical forest types in the Eastern Ghats landscape would serve as a baseline data for forest managers and policy-makers. The project aims to gain insight on the response of these tropical forests to changing global climate in relation to multiple factors (elevated CO2, increased temperatures and altered precipitation).Continue reading →

- Tunnel Field Effect Transistor Design and Analysis for Biosensing Applications October 11, 2022
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering is glad to announce that Mr Garikapati Anith Chowdary, a BTech passed-out student has published a paper in collaboration with Assistant Professor Dr M Durga Prakash. The paper titled Tunnel Field Effect Transistor Design and Analysis for Biosensing Applications was published in the Q2 journal Silicon having an Impact Factor 2.941.
The physical modelling of the tunnel field effect transistor (TFET) is done in this study. The Silvaco TCAD tool is used to design and simulate the TFET structure. The FET device has attracted a lot of attention as the ideal tool for creating biosensors because of its appealing properties such as ultra-sensitivity, selectivity, low cost, and real-time detection capabilities in a sensing point of view.
These devices have a lot of potential as a platform for detecting biomolecules. Short channel effects, specificity, and nano-cavity filling have all been improved in FET-based biosensors. FET-based biosensors are appropriate for label-free applications. Random dopant variations and a thermal budget are seen during the construction of a JLFET. To overcome this problem, the charge-plasma-based concept was established in FETs in this study.
Different metallurgical functions for electrodes were employed in this biosensor to behave as a p-type source and n-type drain. To alleviate the short channel effects, a dual material gate work function for the gate electrode was devised, as well as a double gate architecture. Biomolecules can be neutral or charge-based, and both types of biomolecules can be identified using a proof-of-concept FET-based biosensor. Changes in the drain current (Id) of the device were achieved by varying dielectric values and charges in the cavity region with variable cavity lengths.Continue reading →
