Speech Title: Rehabilitation Using Virtual Reality Technology

Abstract: The objective of this Virtual Reality (VR) Rehabilitation System is to develop rehabilitation system using latest VR technology to replace the traditional physical therapy; deliver human machine interface with virtual reality; reduce the number of specialist required for supervising. The impact of this system is to focus on the 4 key areas which are developed by Telekom Malaysia (TM). They are health care, effectiveness; life made easier and “cool” culture.
In the field of health care, VR technology can be an alternative approach of rehabilitation engineering. It is a new approach to break through the traditional rehabilitation. In term of effectiveness, the system can increase efficiency, obtain more reliable data, and eventually reduce the effort of the health-care specialist. For the “Life made easier”, VR technology is able to allow the rehabilitation exercise to be conducted at home. Lastly, “Cool” culture is aimed to remain ahead of the health care technology.
VR is the three-dimensional environment that generated by computer software which can be explored or interacted by people. It is expressed as a creation of three-dimensional computer graphics that allows an individual to feel the interactive realistic of the VR mentally and physically. The devices involved for virtual reality is an Android-based mobile phone and a cardboard likes VR headset. The software involved in developing the applications is known as Unity Software. Besides, this system involves the fusion of sensors with virtual reality in order to detect the movement of the user. The sensors are known as Microsoft Kinect and Leap Motion sensors. By interfacing the data from these sensors, the body movement of the user can be tracked and the program eventually updates the environment shown in the VR according to the movement.
Rehabilitation applications that developed based on VR based such as with 360 degree treadmill framework; application with VR and integration of leap motion; application with VR and integration of Microsoft Kinect; clinical rehabilitation system support are able to benefit the public in terms of health care by uplifting the user-convenience and efficiency.

Speech Title: An Optimized Testing Technique for Reduction of Test Cases Using Fusion of UML Diagrams and Genetic Algorithm

Abstract: The growing role and importance of software testing has led to design and development of new software testing techniques for all software development paradigms. Controlling and minimizing software complexity is the most important objective of each software development paradigm because it affects all other software quality attributes like reusability, reliability, testability, maintainability etc. For this purpose, a number of software testing techniques have been designed to report different types of faults based on complexity.
In recent years, component-based software development (CBSD) has emerged an evolving paradigm where emphasis is to maximize reuse of code of existing components and effective designing of new components. As the development of component-based software is rising, more and more testing techniques are being developed for the same.
The keynote speech focuses on an optimized testing technique which reduces test cases for a software by using UML diagrams and genetic algorithm. Test data is generated by fusion of three UML diagrams namely, Activity diagram, sequence diagram and Use-Case diagram. Genetic algorithm is used to optimize and reduce the test cases/data. In this way, this technique generates optimized and better test data/cases based on wider coverage of software. By using this, we can improve the quality of a software and can use testing resources more effectively. Therefore, this technique helps in development of good quality software and may be very useful for software industry.
