Advanced automatic mixing tools for music
This thesis presents research on several independent systems that when combined together can generate an automatic sound mix out of an unknown set of multi‐channel inputs. The research explores the possibility of ...
Dynamic bandwidth allocation in multi-class IP networks using utility functions.

Spatial auditory display for acoustics and music collections
This thesis explores how audio can be better incorporated into how people access information and does so by developing approaches for creating three-dimensional audio environments with low processing demands. This is ...
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 ...
Space-variant picture coding
Space-variant picture coding techniques exploit the strong spatial non-uniformity of the human visual system in order to increase coding efficiency in terms of perceived quality per bit. This thesis extends space-variant ...
Packet level measurement over wireless access
Performance Measurement of the IP packet networks mainly comprise of monitoring the network performance in terms of packet losses and delays. If used appropriately, these network parameters (i.e. delay, loss and bandwidth ...
Object coding of music using expressive MIDI
Structured audio uses a high level representation of a signal to produce audio output. When it was first introduced in 1998, creating a structured audio representation from an audio signal was beyond the state-of-the-art. ...
Random graph models for wireless communication networks
This thesis concerns mathematical models of wireless communication networks, in particular ad-hoc networks and 802:11 WLANs. In ad-hoc mode each of these devices may function as a sender, a relay or a receiver. Each ...
Trajectory based video analysis in multi-camera setups
This thesis presents an automated framework for activity analysis in multi-camera setups. We start with the calibration of cameras particularly without overlapping views. An algorithm is presented that exploits trajectory ...
Modelling and characterisation of antennas and propagation for body-centric wireless communication
Body-Centric Wireless Communication (BCWC) is a central point in the development of fourth generation mobile communications. The continuous miniaturisation of sensors, in addition to the advancement in wearable electronics, ...
