Project Description

This is "The Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab", short WaveLab, website. We are a research group at the Computer Sciences Department of the University of Salzburg headed by Andreas Uhl. The short name "WaveLab" already indicates that wavelets are among our favorite tools - we have 15 years of experience in this area. Our research is focused on Multimedia Security including Watermarking, Image and Video Compression, Medical Image Classification, and Biometrics.

Autonomous driving on railroads (autoBahn)


Project Description:

autoBahn (Energie- und Klimafonds / FFG project 825624) is a project on autonomous railroad systems targeted to local railway lines. The basic idea is to employ a set of autonomously driving trainlets of small size, which allows to replace a strict schedule by transportation on demand guaranteeing a certain maximal waiting time. We work in the area of obstacle detection, where a phalanx of different sensors is employed to cope with varying wheater and other environmental conditions. Main task is applying advanced image processing and vision techniques to the sensor data and fusion of the corresponding results to provide robust driving decision informations. This project is led by the Embedded Software and Systems Center at Salzburg University and is conducted in a larger consortium including the Wels University of Applied Science, Siemens AG Austria, and Stern & Hafferl Verkehrsgesellschaft m.b.H., in cooperation with the Department of Measurement and Control (MRT) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
