These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJSTDS, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.


Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Adaptive Background Modeling Technique for Moving Object Detection in Video under Dynamic Environment   Order a copy of this article
    by Dileep Yadav, Karan Singh 
    Abstract: This work proposes a novel method for detection of motion based object having dynamic scenario in the background. The suggested scheme has a strong potential for real-time applications especially for rafting, river, sea-beach, swimming pools, ponds, etc. Apart from these, this work is very beneficial for surveillance of border, tunnel, traffic in the sea, forest, restricted zones, deep zones, etc. This work develops a statistical p based background subtraction method and implemented in three stages. In the first stage, a background model is developed using few initial frames. In the second stage, this work classifies the foreground using the difference frame and the appropriate threshold value. An automatic threshold value is generated at run-time and updated iteratively. It also reduces the problem of using a constant threshold. In the third stage, morphological filters and connected component based region filtering technique is applied to enhance the detection quality. The extensive experimental result shows more accurate results of proposed method. It also demonstrates better performance against considered state-of-the-art methods.

  • Application of AHP-VIKOR and GMDH Framework to develop an indicator to identify utilization potential of Wave energy converter with respect to location   Order a copy of this article
    by Tilottama Chakraborty, Mrinmoy Majumder, Ankit Khare 
    Abstract: The potential of Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP)- rough number based compromise ranking method (also known as VIKOR) Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) and Group Method of Data Handling (GMDH) Multimodal predictive method in development of an indicator for smart representation of "utilization potential" of wave energy converters with respect to specific locations. The significant parameters were identified by their consideration in different case studies and their influence on converter efficiency. The soft-computation methods like AHP-VIKOR and GMDH are used to find the relative priority values of the parameters and to develop an automatic framework for estimation of the indicator which is made directly proportional to the ability of the converter to utilize existing potential of wave energy in a specific location. The results from the multi-method estimation model were validated with the help of Multi Linear Regression Equation and some real time case analysis. With an accuracy of above, 99% the ensemble MCDM-ANN model depicts a reliability which ensures the author of its wide application for the real benefits like cost reduction and efficiency maximization of converters in the utilization of the potential energy of the locations.
