Research Interests:
  • Smart traffic Systems Design: Develop smart systems based Deep Learning algorithms that can automatically count different objects. Such systems and algorithms are very helpful in designing new smart cities.
  • Internet of Video Things (IoVT): Design and analysis of video surveillance systems, for homeland security applications, that match the allowed hardware complexity of the Internet of Video Things (IoVT) infrastructure.
  • Digital Video Processing Algorithms/Architectures levels: Design and analysis of video processing algorithms and architectures. My research involves Video Compression algorithms and architectures, specifically Motion Estimation and Compensation, DCT transform and Vector Quantization.
  • VLSI and FPGA Design (Low-Power and High-Speed Performance Embedded Systems): Design video systems taking into consideration optimizing the encoding speed and study the effect on both the area and power consumption of the designed systems. Systems are tested and implemented in either FPGA or ASIC flow design.
  • Wireless and Digital Communication Systems: Design and analysis of several techniques and systems that help in compressing of the transmitted bit-rate over wireless channels. I consider speech transmission over wireless communication systems.
