Tracking interacting targets in multi-modal sensors
Object tracking is one of the fundamental tasks in various applications such as surveillance, sports, video conferencing and activity recognition. Factors such as occlusions, illumination changes and limited field of ...
Interactive real-time musical systems
This thesis focuses on the development of automatic accompaniment systems. We investigate previous systems and look at a range of approaches that have been attempted for the problem of beat tracking. Most beat trackers ...
Applying Bayesian networks to model uncertainty in project scheduling
Risk Management has become an important part of Project Management. In spite of numerous advances in the field of Project Risk Management (PRM), handling uncertainty in complex projects still remains a challenge. An ...
Cooperative control of relay based cellular networks
The increasing popularity of wireless communications and the higher data requirements of new types of service lead to higher demands on wireless networks. Relay based cellular networks have been seen as an effective way ...
A hierarchal framework for recognising activities of daily life
In today’s working world the elderly who are dependent can sometimes be neglected by society. Statistically, after toddlers it is the elderly who are observed to have higher accident rates while performing everyday ...

Ultra wideband gigabit powerline communication
Powerline Communication (PLC) has long been established for low data rate applications by the electric supply companies. Since 1991, the European CENELEC standard EN 50065 has ruled the use of 3 - 148.5KHz frequency ...
Computer Models for Musical Instrument Identification
A particular aspect in the perception of sound is concerned with what is commonly termed as texture or timbre. From a perceptual perspective, timbre is what allows us to distinguish sounds that have similar pitch and ...
QoS in Node-disjoint Routing for Ad Hoc Networks
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes that can communicate with each other without using any fixed infrastructure. It is necessary for MANETs to have efficient routing protocol and quality of ...
A semantic and agent-based approach to support information retrieval, interoperability and multi-lateral viewpoints for heterogeneous environmental databases
Data stored in individual autonomous databases often needs to be combined and interrelated. For example, in the Inland Water (IW) environment monitoring domain, the spatial and temporal variation of measurements of ...
