Biomedical Signal Processing

Signal processing solutions are developed for biomedical problems. Image processing techniques are used to calculate the flow rate of fluids, map of DNA sequences and segment brain tumors. We are also using artificial and natural pores to build accurate analyte detection systems using sensor arrays.

Speech and Audio Processing

Research at SenSIP spans the areas of speech/audio coding, noise cancelation and speech enhancement. Low complexity implementations of the human auditory perceptual models have been developed and efficient coding/enhancement of speech and audio are performed using these models. They are also incorporated in adaptive noise cancellation systems.

Image Processing & Computer Vision

Current research in image processing involves the investigation of the use of sparse representations in image coding, denoising and compressive sensing. In addition, algorithms for 2D to 3D image transformations are also developed. Research in video processing and analysis includes the design of strategies for energy-efficient transmission, distributed coding and compressive acquisition. Furthermore, implementation aspects using multi-core DSP platforms are also considered.
