Final Year Projects (2017)

New for 2017!

Visual Odometry on TX-1 using OpenVX

The aim of this project is to create a visual odometry program that runs on the NVidia TX-1 using elements of the OpenVX GPU accelerated processing pipeline with some additional code components written in C++/CUDA as part of the project.  This project is good for developing high performance GPU programming skills. 

Smart up-sampling for semantic segmentation

The aim of this project is to develop new up-sampling techniques that improve the performance of fully convolutional networks used for semantic segmentation (labelling pixels in an image by which object they belong to).  This project is good for developing skills in deep learning / convolutional neural networks.

Neural Network labelling of sun damage on skin images

The aim of this project is to develop a Neural Network for a medical imaging task; determining the level of sun damage on skin from images of casts against a standard scale for measuring damage.  This project is good for developing skills in deep learning / convolutional neural networks applied to medical diagnostic problems.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based mapping of crop water stress


The aim of this project is to develop visual processing technologies to estimate water stress from aerial imagery (including thermal) acquired from a drone.  This project is good for developing skills in computer vision, image processing and modelling/machine learning.
