Projects

ATLAS experiment at LHC (2014) contract no. 7/2012, partner P5. In the context of the design of the New Small Wheel system for the ATLAS experiment on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva, our contribution is to the trigger and data acquisition system implemented on FPGA / ASIC.

Analysis, Modeling and Simulation Techniques for Imagery, Bioinformatics and Complex Systems (ITEMS) contract POS-DRU/86/1.2/S/61756, 2010-2013. In the context of developing a new curriculum for a research master program, we implemented various algorithms using CUDA C/C++ on NVidia GPUs.  The goal was to accelerate existing image processing algorithms and developing new ones, like color diffusion models for active contour-based image segmentation or molecule models for biochemistry applications.

Video odometry algorithms for augmented-reality applications of navigation using mobile devices (contract with S.C. ROUTE 66 S.R.L. Brașov, 2011). Analysing the video signal and the data from various sensors allows us to reconstruct the movement path, in order to automatically build maps or building plans.

System and methodology for video signal quality assessment for MPEG-4 video streaming applications (contract with S.C. Infinity Design S.R.L. Brașov, 2008). The loss of UDP packets at network level leads to video quality degradation. The proposed system allows correlating the user-perceived quality degradation with the quality of service at network level. It can be used to study the quality of any IP-based digital video transmission for Internet providers or TV studios.
