Research Projects
1. An LED based Indoor Localization method using Regression
Student: Zeeshan Saeed
Collaborators: Dr. Touqeer Ahmad
Description: Visible light communication (VLC) is gaining a lot of attention these days because of it’s unregulated, unlicensed and virtually unlimited bandwidth available for use. One interesting application of VLC is to estimate the position of receiver i.e. localization as radio frequency (RF) based localization systems fail to provide enough accuracy because of multipath, attenuation, line of sight issues and so on. In this project, we will developing a novel technique for indoor localization utilizing visible light communication. Received signal strength (RSS) will be used as a measure to create a database, which will be used for the training of a k-means clustering system. Furthermore, regression will be applied to further enhance the accuracy of the system.
2. Electo-Stochastic Model for High Drain Battery
Student: Rabia Saeed
Collaborators: Dr. Oumair Naseer
Description: High drain batteries have attracted researchers due to their very nature of delivering high output power by maintaining the high constant discharging current. Lithium being the lightest and most electropositive metal possess great importance in large family of batteries regarding its use as anode in making lithium-ion based rechargeable batteries due to their high-energy density. In this research work, we will be combining the electrical model with the stochastic modeling approach (electro- stochastic model) to measure high discharging current characterctics of high drain lithium-ion batteries.
3. LDPC Channel Coding for Visible Light Communication
Collaborators: Dr. Ambar Bajpai
Description: R. Gallagar introduced Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes in 1962. During the last decade, Non-binary-LDPC codes were investigated rigorously by the researchers, which is evolved from binary LDPC over Galois field. Most of the work done in the literature is for RF communication link and the potential of LDPC codes has been not thoroughly investigated over visible light communication channel. In this project, we will be investigating LDPC codes for VLC link.
4. An Early Wild Fire Detection using SIFT/SURF/MSER
Student: Arooj Mobasher
Collaborators: Dr. Touqeer Ahmad
Description: Forest fire detection is a very important issue in the pre-suppression process. Timely detection allows the suppression units to reach the fire in its initial stages and this will reduce the suppression costs considerably. In this project, we will be using advanced image processing and machine learning techniques for early detection of fire.
5. Gain Enhancement Microstrip Patch Antenna
Students: Huma Rehman
Collaborators: Dr. Kamran Saleem
Description: Microstrip patch antennas are becoming increasingly useful because of their various advantages such as low profile, low cost, easy manufacturing and the capability of being embedded within other devices. However, the major challenge associated with this type of antenna is the low gain. We are working on various techniques that can enhance the performance (in terms of gain) of patch antennas.
6. Recognition of Brain Tumor through Image Processing
Collaborators: Dr. Oumair Naseer
Description: Brain tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue in the brain or central spine that can disrupt brain functionality and is known as brain cancer. The incidences of brain cancer has increased dramatically as evident from the report of National Cancer Institute (NCI) and American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA). The aim of this project is to contribute to this domain, by proposing a novel method, which can automatically detects brain tumor, its location, size, depth, and type.
