Video and SIgnal Processing For Telecommunications (ISIP40)

- The “vIdeo and SIgnal Processing For Telecommunications” (ISIP40) research team was founded in 1991 by Prof. Carlo Regazzoni starting from the expertise acquired in the Signal Processing and Telecommunications Group of Prof. Gianni Vernazza.

Leader of the group is Prof. Regazzoni, Full Professor at the University of Genova, together with Dr. Lucio Marcenaro, Assistant Professor. They can rely on the help of several PhD students, Research Grant co-operators and a number of external collaborators. Teaching activities allow to involve BS and MS students in the research activities of the team.

Thanks to co-operations with industries and other university groups, two new joint laboratories has been created: “Ambient Awareness Laboratory” (A2Lab) and “Cognitive Radio Laboratory”, whose research activities are focused on Cognitive Surveillance and Video Surveillance and on Cognitive Radio and Wideband Communications. The research group has a number of active projects with national and international industries and academic partners.

Ambient Intelligence

Ambient Intelligence area is oriented to provide increased personalized services to the user. These tasks are obtained by developing systems composed by heterogeneous sensors able to extract high-level features. Subsequently analysis, decision and personalized communications are the main steps in order to satisfy the users query depending to the context.

Cognitive Surveillance

Cognitive Surveillance research area is involved in developing automatic systems able to recognize events of interests. Mainly, the research is oriented to realize automatic systems able to detect and track objects and to recognize particular situations as panic events in area of interest. Using this information, bio-inspired techniques are designed to provide the system with the capability of learning from the experience the interactions with the external world. Then, adaptive decision strategies exploit this skill to act (through actuators) directly on the environment and change its current state for security, in case preventive, tasks.

Cognitive Radio

The research activities are focused on Signal Processing Techniques for Spectrum Monitoring, Mode Identification and Classification, new architectures for multimodal receivers.

By using Time-Frequency techniques and Pattern Recognition procedures, new algorithms for air interfaces identification have been developed in case of superimposed modes to make the terminal aware of the external environment.

Wideband and Satellite Communications

The research activity of the area is devoted to mobile wireless communication and satellite wireless communications. In the context of satellite communications the research activity is devoted to develop adaptive and non-conventional signal processing techniques for GPS and the new GALILEO system for coarse synchronization and tracking

Augmented Mixed Reality Applications

Activities in this area concern exploitation of augmented mixed reality exhibits adaptively suited to visitors’ preferences according to worldwide trend of using interactive applications based on innovative interfaces and image processing algorithms. These applications may provide new form of entertainment to people visiting cultural sites involving them in amusing activities while playing, learning and physically interacting.
