Current research activities include medical imaging analysis of diabetic retinopathy, psoriasis, ulcer wounds, skin pigmentation (vitiligo, melasma), visual evoked potentials (VEP) for clinical research, video surveillance for security, digital elevation model (DEM) analysis for agriculture, and seismic data analysis for geoscience. The research centre also serves the university Mission-Oriented Research in Health.
Research at CISIR explores the use of signal and image processing, computer vision, 3D imaging and computational intelligent techniques. Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Independent Component Analysis (ICA), Singular Value Decomposition, and texture modeling using Markov-Gibbs Random Fields are some of techniques used in our medical analysis research. New imaging modalities such as Multispectral and Magnetic Resonance Imaging are currently being investigated to explore biochemical mechanisms for medical analysis. Fractal analysis and blind deconvolution techniques have also been explored for seismic data analysis.
Implementation of medical devices and video surveillance systems are investigated using latest tools in real-time embedded systems. The use of 3D laser and optical scanning modalities and computational intelligent techniques are explored and developed to enhance printed circuit board assembly inspection performance. The research centre brings together researchers with various expertise and disciplines related to signal and image processing, computer vision and embedded systems.
