Visual Computing Research Group

Satellite Imaging Research

Our research group has extensive experience in the development of computer vision systems for processing multi wavelengths satellite images for solar/space imaging and remote sensing applications. We are also experienced in the development of on-line technologies and visualisation and super-resolution technologies. The group is also experienced in extracting knowledge from historical solar data and solar catalogues using applied data mining techniques to provide higher understanding of the association between solar features and events.

This group has delivered the first generation of automated flares-prediction tool called ASAP (more details available at ASAP is integrated with NASA's Community Coordinated Modeling Center (CCMC).

This group is currently developing new solar imaging algorithms to detect solar features that are responsible for Solar Spectral Irradiance, this project is funded by the FP7 project "SOLID: First European Comprehensive SOLar Irradiance Data exploitation". This group is also working in collaboration with ESA in an ESA funded-project, to develop a new version of ASAP that will be used as one of the safety measures for launchers before launching rockets onto space.

Medical Imaging Research

Medical Imaging Research. Our medical engineering research interests include but are not limited to Confocal Corneal Imaging Analysis, PET Tumour Analysis, Mammography, and Intelligent Analysis of EEG/ECG Signals. Currently, we are funded by the NHS to create reliable 3D models for Corneal diagnostic. The final system will be capable of automatically analysing abnormalities in the corneal images using 3D models and help ophthalmologists to diagnose corneal diseases, and dystrophies. These models could revolutionise the diagnosis process and refine the clinical management of corneal pathology leading to improved NHS patients care.
