Applied Digital Imaging

How do you measure and analyse images of the Sun's surface to accurately predict space weather? Is it possible to create a accurate 3D face recognition at low cost for security applications? Can optical character recognition be used in the Arabic alphabet?

These are typical of the problems we solve through our research in digital imaging and metrology. Our projects include:

  • Automated prediction of solar flares by analysing satellite images in real time
  • Automated analysis of digital mammograms and the detection of microcalcifications
  • 3D visualisation of segmented regions of interest in 2D images
  • Optical character recognition for Arabic writing

It's an area with wide ranging applications: space weather forecasting, security and biometrics, medical imaging, watermarking, visualisation and super resolution.
