Completed R&D Projects /Major Research Outputs

National Programme in Perception Engineering Phase I was a programme initiated in 2008 in which researchers of diverse backgrounds (Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Cognitive Science and Neuro-Sciences) have collaborated together to build the broad framework of activity in the field of Perception Engineering. Technology developments and research was taken up motivated by the models of perception and cognition by analysis and understanding of the human perception and cognition processes.

NPPE Phase I has been completed during financial year 2012-13 resulting in several technologies software/hardware/algorithm in the areas of Perception based Engineering.

 

Completed projects of Phase I of National Programme on Perception Engineering are:-

1. Black Tea Aroma Testing System: at CDAC Kolkata

2. Olfaction (e-Nose) Driven Mobile Robot : at Central Electronic Engineering Research Institute, Pilani

3. Visuospatial Perception at NBRC, Manesar

4. Binaural audio processingat IIT

5. Multi-media tele Teaching at IIT

6. Know-how Developed for cognition at Jadavpur University.

A number of cross-disciplinary multi-institutional research activities have been initiated on various themes Researchers of diverse backgrounds from various organizations (Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Cognitive Science and Neuro-Sciences) have collaborated together to build the broad framework of activity in the field of Perception Engineering. Technology developments and research was taken up motivated by the models of perception and cognition by analysis and understanding of the human perception and cognition processes

Education:

  • Multi-media tele teaching

Asynchronous audio, video and hand-writing based multi-media communication system and tele teaching system developed.

  • Perception Driven Video-Conferencing

A multimedia conferencing system, motivated by the features of human cognition architecture, is conceived and designed. Different research groups developed technology for different aspects of the conferencing system. Remote conferencing facility for the visually challenged was a unique aspect of explorations in this area.

Healthcare:

  • Visuospatial Perception

Quantification of Visuospatial Perception in mild Alzheimer (AD) and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) patients and control subjects using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technique.

  • Spatiotemporal Dynamics of the Neural System

Information Tensorial Analysis of Brain Connectivity in Functional Neuroimaging with clinical applicability. From the point of brain imaging signal analysis, we have shown how in the two-phase anisotropic structured tissue material, such as the porous substance with a fluid, the different transport processes----properties as conduction, volume perfusion or permeation----are inter-related due to boundary conditions of the tissue geometry.

Artificial Sensing:

  • Artificial Sensing and Applications: E-Nose and E-Tongue

Centre for Development of Advance Computing, Kolkata has co-ordinated development of application specific deliverables like E-Nose and E-Tongue based black tea quality monitoring system. Both the systems have been developed and installed at various Tea Gardens.

Brain Mechanism:

  • Brain Mechanisms of Tactile Perception

Research work was done to understand how information processing in the somato-sensory areas of the brain enables tactile perception.

  • Know-how Developed for cognition

Know-how developed for cognition of the visually challenged and Influence of emotion/affects on perceptual and cognitive processes to be taken up for feeding into technology development in Phase II at Jadavpur University.
