Customer Perceived Value and Purchasing Intention of Alternative Fuel Vehicles: An empirical Study in Sri Lanka []


Increasing greenhouse gases (GHG) are identified to be a major challenge for the global warming, climate change and air quality pollutions. In order to address the greenhouse gas emission based issues, the governments and the automobile manufacturers have been attempting to promote the adoption of the alternative fuel vehicles all over the world. The previous studies have attempted to show that the factors influencing the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles depend the economic, sociocultural and geographic features of the countries. Consequently, they have been unable to come to the generalized understanding of the key purchasing determinants of alternative fuel vehicles around the world. Accordingly, the present paper attempts to improve the present body of the knowledge about the factors affecting the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles.The theoretical framework was constructed based on the theory of the perceived value and the theory of reasoned action. Accordingly, the conceptual framework was developed by using the dimensions of PERVAL as the independent variables that influence on the customer's attitudes or customer's perceived value towards the alternative fuel vehicles. This model was empirically tested by using the CB-SEM analysis of the data collected online survey of 388 alternative fuel vehicle owners in Sri Lanka. The findings of the present study show how the dimensions based on the perceived value (PERVAL) are related to the CPV and then to PI. The results show that quality of vehicle, emotional driven values and social values don't have a significant impact on the CPV. Whereas, the price factor has a positive and significant impact on CPV, which in turn CPV has a positive significant impact on the PI. These results are in line with Higueras-Castillo, Molinillo, Coca-Stefaniak, & Liebana-Cabanillas (2019). They also tested the behavior of PERVAL dimensions against the CPV in Spain. Based on the findings of the present study, the importers, dealers and governments must concentrate their pricing strategies in order to promote the adoption of AFVs' in Sri Lanka.


Urine Stress Alert System Device for Children and Paralyzed Patient using IoT []


The aim of the work is to develop a smart IoT based urine stress alert system for children and paralyzed patient. This is prepared for children and paralyzed patient those who are incapability of walking and unable to go in the toilet. It also helps for the people who can't speak frequently. The device is working as an assistant for the paralyzed patient who admit in the hospital.Authors have used own proposed model in methodology part. There are no ambiguous requirements; all requirements are clear and fixed. Requirement analysis has done to show all the hardware and software requirements needed for the system development. The microcontroller unit is programmed using C++ programming language to develop the system. This system will help to children and paralyzed patient those who are incapability of walking and unable to go in the toilet.
