RESEARCH

Research Themes

Video Compression Techniques

Design of an Optimized Rate Control Technology for Scalable Video Coding:

This research is focused on optimizing video compression technique. The encoder/ decoder used for my research were based on H.264 video compression standard. The research lead to a new algorithm for bit rate control of various scaled video streams while maintaining the quality of the video to the acceptable limits. The specific steps include understanding of various video coding standards, their study, schemes adapted for coherency, gaps thereof, MPEG2/4 and H.264 architecture and focus on scalability schemes.

 

Research Contributions:

Development of spatial resolution based macro block mapping scheme for the enhancement layer which can assign lower macro block’s partition of the base layer to the enhancement layer.

Development of spatial-temporal search algorithm at the enhancement layer to increase the prediction accuracy and ultimately the coding efficiency.

Development of independent rate control algorithm to regulate the quantization parameter and ultimately the bits consumed per layer per frame for combined scalability

Video Analytics:

Video Analytic System for Public safety:

Normal and Abnormal human activity detection using deep learning models is a significant topic in computer vision. It will help in reducing increasing crime rate by preventing treacherous actions. There is huge advancement in human action recognitions and prediction related research but still state of art algorithms needs improvement in classifying it. This project focuses on Normal activity detection for humans. Main objective will be to propose a framework for analyzing human behavior. Here Convolutional neural Network will be used for Normal activity detection, followed by Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) and long short term memory (LSTM ) to detect criminal actions. Model will be implemented for Indian crime scenarios also to detect criminal behavior. Transfer learning approach will be used to predict suspicious activity.

Signal Processing

Image Reconstruction Using Entropy Method :

Photons from various events in space reach the CZT Imager detector plate and form a “Coded-Mask Image”. The optimum performance of a coded-mask camera requires that every sky position is encoded on the detector in a unique way. This can be stated in terms of the autocorrelation function of the mask pattern. Our project aims at retrieving the contents of a cleaned FITS file containing this data and maximizing the entropy of the “energy” pattern of the photons incident on the detector to give us the most optimized estimate of the actual data.

Research Projects

Yield Prediction and Quality Assessment of Grapes in Vineyard Using LiDAR sensors and Image processing

Research funding by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India under Women Scientists Scheme (WOS-B)

Grapes are one of the remunerative cash crops that improve the economy of farmer as well as country. To support the farmer, this research proposal incorporated vineyard management in particular to predict vineyard’s yield by using LiDAR as a tool during harvesting period where it is done manually today. To achieve the same, dataset of grape cluster with 2D and 3D cameras will be created. The methodology includes grape cluster detection, and area/volume estimation for yield prediction using Deep Learning technology.

Implementation of Optimized Video Compression Standard for Real Time Application

Research funding by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India under Women Scientists Scheme (WOS-B)

video-2.jpg

Video data is encoded several number of times as per the specifications of end users decoding device. The main problem with this method is that it is difficult to adaptively stream non-scalable video contents to heterogeneous client terminals over time-varying communication channels. For non-scalable video data, the server may transcode the bit stream to reduce the bit rate, frame rate or spatial resolution. This project contributed in development of an algorithm to implement scalable video coding technique to adapt to varying availability of bandwidth.

Lidar Technology

Object Detection and Classification Using Sensor Fusion of Camera and Lidar:

This work focuses on fusing of the data from both the sensors using Machine learning. We propose a novel approach to detect objects by first converting 3D space lidar data to 2D plane binary image and mapping of  centroids of the objects in lidar processed images and camera images

The aim of sensor fusion is to use the advantages of each to precisely understand its environment. The camera is a very good tool for detecting roads, reading signs or recognizing a vehicle but fails to provide distance and struggles in low light conditions. The Lidar is better at accurately determining the position of the vehicle. This  project focuses on detecting, classifying and finding exact location of objects in a 3D space using Camera and LiDAR to aid self-driving vehicles. Carla simulator is used to provide all the necessary Camera and LIDAR data.
