Perception Engineering

Perception engineering as an emerging field which focuses on

  • Technology developments motivated by the models of perception and cognition of living biological systems including human-beings.
  • Technology development for analysis and understanding of the human perception and cognition processes.

This field is inter-disciplinary in nature requiring collaboration between engineering scientists, psychologists, neuro-biologists and medical professionals. Cross fertilization of ideas from different fields have the potential to lead to fundamental breakthroughs and innovations.

Research in the development of algorithms and architectures based upon the models of human perception in applicable areas leading to specific deliverables in:-

  • Perception driven Multimedia Conferencing System
  • Perceptual Robotics
  • Artificial Sensing
  • Research for development of tools, techniques and models of human perception and cognition.
  • Development of technically competent manpower in the area of Perception Engineering through conventional and continuing education programmes

Thrust Areas:

  1. Technology developments motivated by the models of perception and cognition of living biological systems including human-beings.
  2. Technology development for analysis and understanding of the human perception and cognition processes.
