Sponsored Projects
1. (Principal Investigator) Segmentation of MR Medical Imaging
Data for Diagnostics . Sponsored by U.P. Council of Science and
Technology, 1999  2000. This project aimed at fur developing the
computerised segmentation techniques to used by MR radiologists in a
reallife hospital setting. Several fast and accurate algorithms for
image segmentation were developed.
2. (Principal Investigator) Development of Digital Signal
Processing Laboratory. Sponsored by the union Ministry for Human
Resource Development, 1992 to 1994. A high speed signal processing
laboratory based on state of the art computer interfaced ADSP systems
was developed for graduate studies and research work in the ACES at
IIT Kanpur. Subsequently Texas Instruments supported further
upgradation of this lab using TITMS platforms. The lab is now
extensively used for advanced work in signal processing.
3. (Coinvestigator) Computer Vision. Sponsored by the All
India Council for Technical Education, 1995 1998. This project
developed computer vision algorithms which were subsequently
implemented on high speed reconfigurable multiprocessor based vision
systems.
4. (Coinvestigator) Low bit Rate Video Compression. Sponsored
by Silicon Automation Systems, 1997  99. The project supported
hardware development in Signal Processing and student fellowships for
development work. Algorithm development has been the main focus of
this project.
