Title: Risk Management for Hydrogen Technologies - Focused on mobile technology


Hydrogen technologies will play a key role in the near future in maintaining transport and mobility sustainability. The technical solutions used in hydrogen technology use many common elements from "traditional" types of propellant fossil fuel. However, the specific chemical, biological and physical properties of hydrogen require different approaches in construction and design. These specific properties also entail possible safety risks resulting from inadequate knowledge in this area. In order to minimize them, it is necessary to know these technologies also in terms of possible threats and to create a system for their early identification, minimization or elimination.

Prof. Dr. Dragan Peraković is chief editor of the International Journal of Cyber-Security and Digital Forensics (IJCSDF).

Title: Internet of things concept for informing visually impaired persons in indoor environments


Movement and informing visually impaired persons is difficult because mobile application solutions and services are unable to work in indoors environments. Main precondition for active participation in the daily living and needs of visually impaired persons is increased degree of mobility. The aim of this research is to increase the quality of life of visually impaired persons and the degree of mobility in indoor environments by applying modern information and communication technologies (Cloud Computing, Fog, IoT, AAL / ELE platform). User requirement will be used to define functionalities of service for informing visually impaired persons in the example of large retail chains. A conceptual system architecture model will be proposed for providing information service with the aim to provide real-time information to all system stakeholders. This research will also show simulation testing of the proposed architecture with Arduino Uno and Raspberry Pi 3 platforms for collecting information and informing end users.

Title of the speech: Comprehensive Approach for Mathematical Modeling of Mechanical Systems: Fixture Design Case Study


Present work is devoted to locating and clamping of prismatic parts in fixtures during the machining on drilling-milling-boring machines. The special feature of locating schemes of parts of the present type is that one of the flat surfaces is used as a datum (3 contact points) ensuring stability, convenience of locating and vibration elimination during the machining process. Within the scope of the presented work, the comprehensive mathematical model of the system “fixture – workpiece” has been developed taking into account technological features of locating and clamping processes of workpiece in fixture. The methodology of determination of the rigidity of the cutting tool and functional elements has been proposed. As a result, the static and dynamic analysis of the workpiece in the fixture under the effect of spatial system of cutting and clamping forces is being determined. In addition, the free frequencies of the system “fixture-workpiece” and forms of the free and forced vibrations, frequency-response characteristics are being determined.
