Centre for Research in Image and Signal Processing
Image and signal processing is a broad field that encompasses the acquisition of data from the world around us, manipulating or processing that data into a useful form, the extraction of information from that data, and the interpretation of that information. The breadth and power of both image processing and signal processing are what makes them key enabling technologies of the information age. The interests of the Image and Signal Processing Research Group cover the full range of image processing and signal processing techniques. In image processing we are active in developing techniques and applying them to image analysis, computer vision, rotobics, and machine vision. We are active in developing theoretical aspects of signal processing as well as applying these techniques to a broad range of practical problems. Many of the applications involve a complete systems engineering approach in which to achieve the desired outcome, all elements from data acquisition, processing, information extraction, and interpretation must be carefully integrated.
CRISP will be running a workshop in "Image Processing in VHDL on FPGAs" on April 4-6, 2018.
