Research Projects

1.  Text Book on Digital Signal Processing
Description: Keeping in view the needs of our students, a text book on digital Signal Processing is under development. Most books written by foreign authors contain irrelevant material which makes the book voluminous and our students get scared of reading these books, therefore, the objective is to create a text according to curriculum approved by Higher Education Commission and the requirements and abilities of our students with diverse backgrounds.
2. Text Book on Probability and Statistics for Engineers
Description: Another subject of fundamental importance in all engineering disciplines. It is high time to develop an indigenous textbook catering the problems and shortcomings of our students. With a decade long experience of teaching this course both at undergraduate and graduate level, I feel a strong need of a textbook in this area.
3.  Comparison of Least Mean Square Based Techniques for Spur Cancellation in Fractional N Frequency Synthesizer
Students: Maryam Javed
Description: In this project, a digital fractional-N frequency synthesizer is implemented in matlab/SIMULINK to study the behavior of LMS based adaptive noise cancellation technique. Further different variants of LMS algorithm namely normalized LMS, sign-error LMS, sign-data LMS and sign-sign LMS are also implemented to study the comparative performance of these algorithms.
4. Aid for Deaf
Collaborators: Dr. Musharraf Hanif
Description: To assist deaf people in driving a bike, an acoustic beam-former is designed using an array of microphones. The array will be mounted on safety helmet of the biker and will prompt the biker about the incoming traffic by flashing LEDs.
5. Life Cycle Assessment and Load Management of Lead-acid Batteries
Collaborators: Dr. Ali Nasir
Description: Main objective of this project is to carry out an assessment of the life cycle of lead-acid batteries that is consistent with the ISO 14040 series. This assessment involves four phases i.e. goal and scope definition, life cycle inventory, life cycle impact assessment, and interpretation. Secondary objective is to devise ways to efficiently and effectively manage the batteries according to variable load conditions.
