Project Title: Melanoma (skin Cancer) long Term Monitoring
Course Suitability: BEng

Project Description: Monitoring of Melanoma over a long period of time can provide early diagnoses of skin cancer. The project will investigate several aspects of medical imaging, with the main objective to build a prototype system to retrieve images and analyse them efficiently and effectively. At the end of this project the student will have a good understanding of image processing, medical imaging. The project will involve hardware, software and even some mechanical design.

Project Title: UL Campus crowd Tracker and Navigation System
Course Suitability: BEng

Project Description: To develop an UL Campus (Smart Tour)

The majority of virtual tours offered by campuses are of a static nature. Smart monitoring of people by implementing a dynamic library of real-time and useruploaded videos.

In this work we use a large collection of crowd videos to learn crowd motion patterns by performing long-term analysis in an on-line manner. The learned motion patterns can be used in a range of application domains such as crowd event detection or anomalous behavior recognition. In this particular work, we choose to use the motion patterns learned on the database to drive a tracking algorithm.

The student should have a good interest in software/image processing.

Project Title: Fish monitoring and Tracking system
Course Suitability: BEng

Project Description:

Project is to develop an electronic fish tracking system to automatically monitor the movements and migratory habits of fish. The system is aimed particularly at studies of effects on fish movement over a 4 week period. Location of fish is acquired by means of acoustic links from the fish to underwater Listening Stations, and by radio links which relay tracking information to a shore-based Data Base. Fish over 4 inches long may be tracked over a 5 mile area. The electronic fish tracking systems provides are not practical for this application. Student will need good Hardware and software skills.

Project Title: Classroom Attendance & Tracking systems
Course Suitability: BEng

Project Description:

Attendance in colleges is generally paper based which may sometimes cause errors. Taking attendance manually consumes more time. So the proposed project attendance system will examine the use of Image systems/mobilephones /wireless technology to take attendance. Once a system is chosen the student will then implement a real system. The student should have a good interest in software/image processing and wireless technology.

Project Title: Anti-theft Bicycle & Tracking System
Course Suitability: BEng

Project Description:

A major difficulty that people have had to face for a long time now is that of vehicle theft. Often, people find their vehicles stolen from parking lots or other spaces, leaving them stranded on the road without a transport. Early research revealed that bicycles and motorcycles suffer the highest rate of thefts because of the poor anti-theft measures that are installed in them. This project will evaluate different security methods and develop a system to prevent and also track bicycle if stolen.

The student should have an interest in wireless communications, software, and Hardware.
