Robust Unconstrained Face Detection and Lip Localization Algorithm Using Gabor Filters

ABSTRACT

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) is a well-researched field of study aimed at augmenting the man-machine interface through interpretation of the spoken word. From in-car voice recognition systems to automated telephone directories, automatic Continue reading

Scaled Synthetic Aperture Radar System Development

ABSTRACT

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems generate two dimensional images of a target area using RF energy as opposed to light waves used by cameras. When cloud cover or other optical obstructions prevent camera imaging over a target area, SAR Continue reading

Concatenative Synthesis for Novel Timbral Creation

ABSTRACT

Modern day musicians rely on a variety of instruments for musical expression. Tones produced from electronic instruments have become almost as commonplace as those produced by traditional ones as evidenced by the plethora of artists who can be Continue reading

Digital Guitar Effects Unit and Amplifier

ABSTRACT

This report outlines the design and implementation of a digital guitar effects unit and amplifier. The main portion of this project consisted of the digital equalizer and effects. Several commercial equalizers were researched in order to decide the typical Continue reading

Face and Lip Localization in Unconstrained Imagery

ABSTRACT

When combined with acoustical speech information, visual speech information (lip movement) significantly improves Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) in acoustically noisy environments. Previous research has demonstrated that visual modality Continue reading

Object-Oriented RFID with IoT: A Design Concept of Information Systems in Manufacturing

ABSTRACT

The Internet of Things (IoT) has increasingly become important in industry. Connectivity over the internet of not only people but also devices (such as sensors, appliances, machines, robots, and vehicles) is leading to a paradigm shift in Continue reading

NB-IoT for D2D-Enhanced Content Uploading with Social Trustworthiness in 5G Systems

ABSTRACT

Future fifth-generation (5G) cellular systems are set to give a strong boost to the large-scale deployment of Internet of things (IoT). In the view of a future converged 5G-IoT infrastructure, cellular IoT solutions such as narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) and Continue reading

Study and Realisation of Nyquist Rate Filters in Voltage Inverter Switch Technique

Low-sensitivity switched capacitor filters imitating ‘R’,’L’ and ‘C’ can be built by means of capacitances, ordinary switches and voltage inverter switches (VIS). These structures carry the inherent bilinear transformation of Continue reading
