Online quality assessment of human movements from Kinect skeleton data

The objective of this project is to evaluate the quality of human movements from visual information which has use in a broad range of applications, from diagnosis and rehabilitation to movement optimisation in sports science….

Automated Driver Assistance Systems

Real Time Detection and Recognition of Road Traffic Signs Researchers Dr. Jack Greenhalgh and Prof. Majid Mirmehdi Overview We researched automatic detection and recognition of text in traffic signs. Scene structure is used to define…

Hardware-accelerated Video Fusion

This projects aim at producing a low-power demonstrator for real-time video fusion using a hybrid SoC device that combines a low-power Cortex A9 multi-core processor and a FPGA fabric. The methodology involves using a fusion…

Video super-resolution

Motion compensated video super-resolution is a technique that uses the sub-pixel shifts between multiple low resolution images of the same scene to create higher resolution frames with improved quality. An important concept is that due…

Perceptual Quality Metrics (PVM)

Novel video quality metrics that use the dual-tree complex wavelet transform (DT-CWT) and motion analysis to characterise perceptual tolerances within spatial and temporal textures

Parametric Video Coding

A video compression scheme where an analysis/synthesis framework is employed rather than the conventional energy minimization approach.
