S. <p><strong>Purpose: </strong><em>CAN Bus is a robust way to communicate inter-device Communication. Primarily it is used in the vehicle. But now, it is also used in various industrial automation fields. Among different branded robots, they use CAN-bus to control the robot movement. When the new researchers integrate the can bus into their project, they need to spend time running and handling the device through the CAN bus. This research work is basically for those trying to integrate the CAN bus into their project in a short period. Here, we briefly describe the CAN bus protocol first, then go through a practical experiment to better understand it. In our experiment, we feed the Analog value as a speed profile through the CAN bus to the CoppeliaSim virtual environment to see the speed variation of the simulated conveyor belt upon rotating the potentiometer. The complete project code and demo video are available on Github. The interested researcher can download and experiment on it. </em></p> <p><strong>Design/Methodology/Approach</strong>: <em>This research work demonstrates how to exchange data through CAN bus between a virtual and a natural environment. We created a virtual environment using the CoppeliasSim robot simulator. Inside the simulator, we add a conveyor belt. Using c#, we created a bridge application that translates the data between the simulator and the natural environment outside it. We used two Arduino Mega 2560 boards and two MCP2515 based TJA1050 popular CAN driver modules. The CoppeliaSim requests data to the remote master through the bridge application and CAN bus. The remote master reads the analog value and sends it back to the simulator through the local master. CoppeliaSim changes its conveyor belt speed by parsing the data and converting it to the speed value.</em></p> <p><strong>Findings/Result: </strong><em>We can find some concepts and procedures to control the virtual elements from the external world through the CAN bus. We can convert any environmental analog parameter into digital form and display it locally or remotely inside the simulator. We can build the digital twins used to process monitoring in the industrial automation field following this experiment. </em></p> <p><strong>Originality/Value: </strong><em>Most CAN bus-related documents lack a practical approach or an accumulation of workable summaries. We demonstrate the CAN bus differently in this research work. This paper is an entirely practical-oriented demonstration. This is the unique approach to controlling the virtual element from the real world through the CAN bus.

N. <p><strong>Background/Purpose:</strong> <em>To get evidence from suspect computers running on Windows Operating System, law enforcement agencies and corporations follow many standard procedures relevant to Digital Forensics and Incident Response processes. The primary contrast between forensics and incident response is that forensics is evidence-driven and is often more closely connected with criminal activity, while incident response is more focused on discovering, containing, and recovering from breach of security incidents. A guideline is often intended to simplify certain procedures in accordance with a predefined routine or good practice. As data storage technology progresses from hard disc drives (HDDs) to solid-state drives (SSDs), it has become more difficult for Digital Forensics Analysts to perform evidence acquisition tasks from suspicious systems due to file integrity issues. Existing forensic principles and methods were created mostly on the basis of hard disc drive technology.

Researchers use their paper to convey their findings to the rest of the world. However, owing to problems such as processing fees from journals, an inefficient review procedure, a lengthy processing time, and the closure of journals, the research community has encountered a major hurdle. In order to overcome this issue, we propose in this study a system known as the Open Platform for Research Article Sharing (OPRAS), which would allow the author to publish his or her paper utilizing a peer-to-peer (P2P) architecture.</em></p> <p><strong>Objective: </strong><em>To get an understanding of the research article publication process and the issues it faces, in order to propose OPRAS, a new system that will employ a peer-to-peer architecture to share research articles.</em></p> <p><strong>Design/Methodology/Approach: </strong><em>Data from websites, research papers, and other sources are collected, analysed and presented using ABCD analysis.</em></p> <p><strong>Findings/Results: </strong><em>With the help of research articles that are published in journals, researchers can tell the world about their work. But authors can't publish their findings because of different problems, which makes it hard for society to learn new things.

V. A. Jayanthila Devi <p><strong>Purpose</strong><strong>: </strong><em>A continuous Nervous system illness that influences development is known as neurodegenerative sickness. Side effects show up continuously, and may start with a scarcely distinguishable quake in just a single hand. Quakes are normal, but they are frequently joined by firmness or eased back versatility. The emphasis is on Parkinson's infection specifically (PD). The signs and results of Parkinson's contamination shift starting with one individual then onto the next. Early reprimand markers could be subtle and go unnoticed. Regardless, when aftereffects start to influence the different sides of your body, secondary effects normally jump on single side of your body and decay on that side. Parkinson's illness is brought about by the demise of nerve cells in the substantia nigra, a portion of the cerebrum. The exactness of a few fake brain network approaches, for example, Convolutional Neural Network, Recurrent Neural Network, Long-Short term Memory network have been concentrated on to analyze Parkinson's illnesses. This record inspects a synopsis of a portion of the examination and concentrates on that have been directed in the field of clinical diagnostics. In light of the audit, research holes are featured, as well as examination needs for future review.</em></p> <p><strong>Approach</strong><strong>: </strong><em>A thorough study on the algorithms used in analysis of handwritten and vocal to distinguish and anticipate Parkinson's illness.</em></p> <p><strong>Findings</strong><strong>:</strong> <em>The review showed that the majority of the AI and deep learning strategy can order neurodegenerative illness in view of vocal, transcribed and walk investigation in light of the clinical datasets. The new crossover philosophy proposed will be more exact as the model will actually want to foresee and distinguish neurodegenerative sickness in view of eye development.</em></p> <p><strong>Originality</strong><strong>:</strong> <em>The sort of information expected for forecast and discovery framework are considered and the design and portrayal outline of a proposed model are incorporated.</em></p> <p><strong>Paper Type: </strong><em>Literature Review<strong>.</strong></em></p> 2022-06-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Management Students’ Perception of Industrial Internship Programme at Srinivas University, Mangaluru, Karnataka 2022-06-23T15:47:48+00:00 Dsouza Prima Frederick Shailashri V.
