Profile

Our group focuses on research, development and implementation of advanced digital signal processing algorithms, mainly in the fields of adaptive control and audio processing. We build on our experience with statistics, namely with the Bayesian approach to system identification and modeling, as well as the relevant fields of linear algebra.

Our target platforms are Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and Digital Signal Processors (DSPs). We use Matlab/Simulink to specify, model and verify algorithms that we later convert and synthesize to HW. As such specialized solutions are likely to be used in embedded systems, we also research features that result in extremely fast execution, use small amount of memory, small chip area or low power consumption. We achieve this both through designing new or modifying existing DSP algorithms, and using architectural properties such as dynamic reconfiguration of FPGAs...

Successful Kick-off meeting of the Europe-wide research project UrbanSmartPark

UrbanSmartPark is one of the first projects within the KIC Urban Mobility, an European initiative supported by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology. The aim of the network is to create more liveable urban space and to integrate user-centred mobility services and products. The official start of the project UrbanSmartPark took place on January 20 and 21, 2020 in Braunschweig at the Automotive Research Center Niedersachsen (NFF). More information can be found here.

Projects strengthening the semi-conductor supply chain in Europe

The four ECSEL projects, PANACHE, THINGS2DO, WAYTOGO FAST, and WAKeMeUP, have targeted technology development and application demonstration in two main technology fields: FDSOI technology for high end low power application and Embedded Non-Volatile Memory enabling microcontrollers. Our group was participating in PANACHE and THINGS2DO and we are partner in running WAKeMeUP project now. See the video presenting these projects that are "tasked" with leveraging Europe's leadership in nano-electronics manufacturing.

Successful participation at CPS Summer School 2019

CPS Summer School 2019 took place in Alghero, Sardinia, from 23 to 27 September 2019. In its frame the Creative Lab was held to promote the exchange of ideas between PhD students and young researchers. The teams participating in the Creative Lab had to develop innovative ideas and projects and present them as an end-product to the audience. The team with our PhD student Raissa Likhonina won the first prize and got the certificate for the best business idea. See the winning Orange team.
