Application-specific processors for video processing
The objectives of this project include the development of design methodologies for Application Specific Instruction set Processors - ASIPs, mainly for real-time video processing. We are specifically targeting video deinterlacing and frame rate conversion for high definition television, and real time image processing for biomedical applications.
Real-time automated seizure detection in the neonatal brain
This project is done in collaboration with neurology researchers at Hopital Ste-Justine. The goal of the project is to develop a reliable real-time automated seizure detection for babies. This is a difficult problem, mainly due to the neonatal brain's immaturity and because of erratic limb movements in babies. However, early detection is essential to prevent potentially long-term consequences. The project has two components: EEG and video analysis.
Vehicular navigation embedded system integrating inertial and GPS data
The goal of this project is to demonstrate the feasability of integrating positionning data coming from inertial and GPS sensors for a vehicular navigation application and at very low cost. Inertial sensors tend to be very precise in the short term, and can adequately supplement GPS data during brief service interruptions. The very low cost constraint is directed by the needs of the automotive industry. In the long term, the system will integrate micro-electro-mechanical (MEMS) accelerometers.
Prospective graduate students
I am always looking for good graduate students that are passionate about a research topic. I expect my students to work very hard and to produce excellent work. The necessary skills to work on the research topics that interest me include:
Possible Master's project profile
Employment after graduate studies
