The main problem of blindness from glaucoma is a lack of recognition, to clarify, the patients do not know whether they have glaucoma or not. As time pass by, it continues to develop from time to time, and most of the patients will realize about it when it has developed into a severe stage. According to the ophthalmology research, if the area ratio between the optic cup to the optic disc is greater than 1/3, patients will be classified as having glaucoma. The aim of this research is to develop the device to capture the image of the optic disc. Then, the image provided by the prototype, with the aid of image processing algorithm based on the area ratio of the optic cup to the optic disc, can be used to classify glaucomatous patients from healthy individual. From the result, the captured image of the optic disc, the location of the optic nerve head is clear. The image of the optic disc apparently shows brighter and dimmer section, which represents the optic cup and optic disc respectively. The image can be used for analysis of opened angle glaucoma via image processing algorithm, which are provided by many researchers [ 1,19,21,22].</p> Paween Wongkornchaovalit Thunyaseth Sethaput Copyright (c) 2019 TNI Journal of Engineering and Technology 2019-12-24 2019-12-24 7 2 79 86 Investigation of Energy Conservation Potential for Convenience Stores in Thailand <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The convenience stores in Thailand presents its continuing growth in both urban and rural areas. The stores possess various electric equipment for refrigeration, air-conditioning, lighting, cooking, with 7/24 service; resulting in high electricity demand. Those stores have been persistently conducted energy conservation; however, there is still a great potential for energy consumption reduction.</p> <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; This research conducted detailed energy auditing to investigate the energy usage and its influencing factors. Nine convenience stores participated in the study. The results showed that the stores consumed electricity at 173,284 kWh/year, average peak power 20 kW, energy intensity 823 kWh/m<sup>2</sup>.year. The refrigeration shares 59–64% of the total energy consumption. The air-conditioning came the second with the consumption of 26-28% while the electric lighting consumed about 5%.&nbsp; This study proposed eight energy conservation measures including &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;(1) Reflective ceramics painted roof, (2) Insulated roof for heat resistance, (3) Solar photovoltaic rooftop, (4) Reduction of glazed area, (5) inverter air-conditioner, (6) Inverter compressor for refrigerated open showcase, (7) Inverter compressor for walk-in cold room, and (8) 3-layers glass for walk-in cold room.</p> <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A mathematical model was developed for the store to present the energy usage in each system and the whole shop. For Thailand, the estimated conserved energy in the standalone and the commercial building’s store, implementing particular measure and combined measures, from 2019 – 2027 is about 9.9%. Therefore, these measures should be further evaluated for their investment worthiness.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Wipawadee Wongsuwan Pipat Chaiwiwatworakul Apinya Puapattanakul Athikom Bangviwat Copyright (c) 2019 TNI Journal of Engineering and Technology 2019-12-24 2019-12-24 7 2 87 96 Improving the Performance of Tree Algorithm using Mixed Splitting Algorithm <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The aim of this research is to enhance the performance of tree algorithm using mixed splitting algorithm. Binary tree is very efficient when the number of users is small. In case of large number of users, Ternary tree performs better than other algorithms. Therefore, this paper introduces mixed splitting algorithm. The details of this algorithm are as follows. When the number of the collided users is small, this algorithm will split the collided users into 2 groups. In case of large number of users, this algorithm will split the collided users into 3 groups. From the results, we found that the probability of success of the proposed algorithm tends to be higher than the Binary and Ternary algorithms. With this reason, the proposed algorithm performs superior performance than other algorithms.</p> Warakorn Srichavengsup Copyright (c) 2019 TNI Journal of Engineering and Technology 2019-12-24 2019-12-24 7 2 97 104 SARIMA Models Applications for Demand Forecasting and Supply Planning of Natural Rubber in Thailand <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Rubber is the important economic crops and export products of Thailand. Studying and forecasting the demand of rubber could be used as information for supply planning including production and cultivate area. Time series analysis was used to formulate the forecasting model for export volume of Concentrated Latex, RSS Grade 1, and Crepe Rubber. The appropriate forecasting time series models were &nbsp;<img title="SARIMA(0,0,0) (0,1,1)_{12}" src=",0,0)&amp;space;(0,1,1)_{12}">&nbsp;&nbsp; <img title="SARIMA(0,1,1) (1,1,0)_{12}" src=",1,1)&amp;space;(1,1,0)_{12}">&nbsp;&nbsp;and <img title="SARIMA(0,1,1) (1,1,0)_{12}" src=",1,1)&amp;space;(1,1,0)_{12}">&nbsp;, respectively.&nbsp; After that historical statistics of production and stock were used to estimated rubber production and cultivate area corresponding to forecast including domestic demand and export. In the year 2022, Thailand should produce rubber about 1.573 million tons, which requiring cultivate area is about 6.561 million rai, respectively. The research results could be used to plan and set the appropriate policy for Thai rubber production. Consequently, Thailand should reduce the rubber plantation area by 12.659 million rai and then promote the planting of other economic crops. This is to achieve a balance between demand and supply.</p> Pawinee Paisri Weerapat Sessomboon Rojanee Homchalee Copyright (c) 2019 TNI Journal of Engineering and Technology 2019-12-24 2019-12-24 7 2 105 114 Unfolding to the Past: Temporal and Dimensional Perception Enrichment for Image Impression Improvement <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; An image is in essence a record of visible objects at a particular point in time. This paper proposes a method based on adaptively integrating depth cues with relative motion for enriching temporal and dimensional perception of images. The key idea of our method is to construct a natural-looking animated sequence of images from the original one by introducing differing depth cues and varying time frames to individual generated images. The differing depth cues are created by utilizing variations of visual details and color saturation, whereas the presentation time duration of each image is determined based on structural similarity of consecutive images. The resulting animated image can give a sense of increasing depth as well as a temporal dynamics from past to present. The proposed method can be applied to image impression improvement, especially in the exhibitions or presentations of historical places and artifacts.</p> Kulwadee Somboonviwat Thitiporn Lertrusdachakul Copyright (c) 2019 TNI Journal of Engineering and Technology 2019-12-24 2019-12-24 7 2 115 122
