TL;DR: A new low cost game framework for stroke rehabilitation programme that would increase patients' motivation for therapy is presented, and the feasibility and effect of a new game based technology to support hand and leg rehabilitation is studied.
Abstract: Stroke is a major cause of severe physical disability, leading into a variety of impairments. In general, stroke rehabilitation is a process which requires intensive direct physical therapy and is usually guided by physiotherapists. The long and intensive therapy sessions often results in patients losing the motivation to continue with the therapy, and as a result patients do not recover to their prospective. With increasing occurrence of stroke incidence, therapists are under pressure for time. At present most of the rehabilitation programmes are highly human intensive. Thus an innovative game technology that supports stroke rehabilitation may provide new opportunities. The main objective of this paper is to present a new low cost game framework for stroke rehabilitation programme that would increase patients' motivation for therapy, and also to study the feasibility and effect of a new game based technology to support hand and leg rehabilitation. In this paper, some important new game design principles for hand and leg rehabilitation with a standard angle based representation of the full body motion during exercise, for improving the accuracy of stroke exercise are presented. The design of serious games, with important game design principle frequently linked with worthy user engagement, may offer perceptions into how more effective systems can be developed for stroke rehabilitation. The additional bio-signal and online database will enable evaluation of patient s movement performance.

TL;DR: The aim of this study is to propose a framework for RCM in geographically distributed software development systems and describe the identification of the communication risks, their causes and effects duringRCM in GSD systems.
Abstract: Presently, software systems are becoming an important module of businesses in the world. Most of the organizations are adopting Global Software Development (GSD), and it is continuously getting faster. Organizations are trying to distribute their work worldwide. However, distributed software development is not an easy task and the organizations face different challenges. Software Requirement Change Management (RCM) is one of them and it becomes more difficult in the context of the GSD. Currently, there is no framework available, which can be used for the RCM in GSD organizations. The aim of this study is to propose a framework for RCM in geographically distributed software development systems and describe the identification of the communication risks, their causes and effects during RCM in GSD systems.

TL;DR: This paper will discuss about the power consumption aspect of the MANET routing protocols, and an evaluation of these routing protocols based on energy consumption is presented.
Abstract: Proposing energy efficient routing protocols for Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) and Wireless Sensor Network is an uphill and challenging task. Many different routing protocols based on different features have been proposed to the IETF. Performances of many of these routing protocols have been evaluated focusing on metrics such as delay, routing overhead, and packet delivery. However, no studies have been done to investigate energy aspect of these routing protocols. Thus, this paper will discuss about the power consumption aspect of the MANET routing protocols. A performance comparison of Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocols with respect to average energy consumption and routing energy consumption are explained thoroughly. Then, an evaluation of how the varying metrics in diverse scenarios affect the power consumption in these two protocols is discussed. A detailed simulation model using Network Simulator 2 (NS2) with different mobility and traffic models are used to study their energy consumption. Finally, an evaluation of these routing protocols based on energy consumption is presented.

TL;DR: The objective of the paper is to identify which technique is more significant in terms of color correction and it is hoped that the finding will benefit to non divers to visualize the underwater as the real underwater world.
Abstract: Underwater imaging is quite a challenging in the area of photography especially for low resolution and ordinary digital camera. There are a few problems occur in underwater images such as limited range visibility, low contrast, non uniform lighting, blurring, bright artefacts, color diminished and noise. This paper concentrates on color diminished. Significant application of standard computer vision techniques to underwater imaging is required in dealing with the said problems. Both manual and auto level techniques are used to record the mean values of the stretched histogram. The objective of the paper is to identify which technique is more significant in terms of color correction. It is hoped that the finding will benefit to non divers to visualize the underwater as the real underwater world.

TL;DR: An integration of trust dimensions and risk taken propensity to the UTAUT model showed that Performance Expectation, Peer Influence, Trust belief and Risk taken propensity are significant in predicting behavioural intention to adopt e-government.
Abstract: Studies suggest that there are factors that affects citizens' behavioural intention and adoption behaviour towards the use of government e-services. Low patronage of eGovernment has become an issue in developing nations. Therefore, this paper proposes an integration of trust dimensions and risk taken propensity to the UTAUT model. We tested the model on 101 university students in Malaysia. The survey instrument items were carefully selected from previously validated constructs. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to examine the relationship between the constructs. The study showed that Performance Expectation, Peer Influence, Trust belief and Risk taken propensity are significant in predicting behavioural intention to adopt e-government. Furthermore, implications for practice and further research were also discussed.
