Real-Time Digital Systems

Below is a brief list of research topics from those that I have enjoyed pursuing along with Dr. Len Bruton and the Multi-Dimensional Signal Processing (MDDSP) Research Group.

o Linear-trajectory filtering.
Simple 3-D recursive filter algorithms used to enhance objects moving with uniform speed and direction in digital image sequences.

o Object-tracking and enhancement.
The above 3-D recursive linear-trajectory filters used in an adaptive system to track and enhance moving objects moving on smooth, but nonlinear trajectories.

o Analog linear-trajectory filter implementations.
Investigation of analog RC-active filter structures to perform linear-trajectory filtering.

o Fractal landscape generation.
Using spatially-variant 2-D recursive filtering techniques to generate realistic fractal landscapes.
