Advanced Signal Processing


To foster interdisciplinary research and development of high-performance applications based on signal processing technology and to exploit synergy between a range of application requirements and their technological implementation; to contribute to the vision of ambient intelligence landscape by improving embedded systems based on advanced signal processing and to stimulate support for open software and hardware technologies.
The work focuses on applications, algorithms, devices and appropriate tools and includes:

  • Achieving next generation system performance in the application areas of biomedical processing (e.g. ultrasonic echography, multimodal imaging, devices for personal health and special needs), multiple media (video, images, music, speech, language engineering), communications (fixed, mobile, wireless, navigation) and security (enhanced e-Commerce transactions).
  • Designing advanced algorithms to support such applications including amongst others: physical modelling, multidimensional filtering, neural networks, wavelets, chaos theory, recognition, synthesis, coding, compression, modulation, watermarking and cryptography. Realisation of algorithms via codecs with the following properties: adaptive, (quasi) real time, secure and robust/reliable (graceful degradation and error recovery). Codecs are expected to support multiple data rates and data fusion and to handle large data sets.
  • Implementing algorithms in embedded systems with innovative approaches including: signal processing devices, sensory and acquisition subsystems (biometrics, conditioning, analogue/digital conversion). Device properties comprise: low power, high performance, (re)configurable and portable with small footprints for embedded systems.
