Organization profile

Introduction / mission

Enabling the digital revolution through theories, algorithms, architectures and solutions for analyzing and interpreting signals, images, and multivariate data sets.

Highlighted phrase

Making sense of signals, images and data

Organisational profile

The Signal Processing Systems (SPS) group studies theories and techniques to extract meaningful information from signals, images, and multivariate data sets. We combine academic excellence with a strong real-world impact in biomedical instrumentation, medical image analysis, video surveillance, autonomous vehicles, digital wireless and optical communication, hearing aids, and intelligent lighting.

The SPS group has top scientists in signal and image analysis, information and communication theory, and machine learning and artificial intelligence. We also host many senior clinical and industrial experts on a part-time basis, which allows many of our students to be co-supervised by these experts.

Some of our teams and projects:

The Bayesian Intelligent Autonomous Systems lab (BIASlab) is developing autonomous agents that learn from their environment and is using these agents to automate the creation of novel signal processing systems.

The Biomedical Diagnostics (BM/d) lab is developing innovative methods for model-based analysis of biomedical signals, ranging from ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging to electrophysiology and photo-plethysmography. It collaborates with leading clinical partners in oncology, cardiovascular, gynecology-perinatology, sleep, and neuromuscular research.

The Information and Communication Theory lab (ICT Lab) studies information processing in a broad sense – data compaction and compression, modulation and error correction, and security.

The Neu3CA team studies neurodegeneration, neuromodulation and neuronal networks in the field of cognitive aging, to advance understanding of cognition and its decline in neuropsychiatric disorders like epilepsy, stroke and depression.

The Video Coding and Architectures (VCA) group does systems-oriented research on video analysis, image/video segmentation and object-oriented and 3D video compression. It pursues state-of-the-art video functionality at high cost-efficiency by combining novel algorithms and architectures.
