Three of RMIT's fourteen Australian Research Council Discovery Grants were awarded to researchers from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the first round of grants for 2009.
Professor Hong Ren Wu, 2009 ARC Grant recipient.
Professor Xinghuo Yu, 2009 ARC Grant recipient.
Professor Hong Ren Wu from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (SECE) and Professor Xinghuo Yu, Director of RMIT Platform Technologies Research Institute and Professor with the School were the proud recipients of an ARC Discovery Grant of $250,000 over three years. The grant was awarded to undertake modelling and removal of noise and artefacts in surveillance and security video for forensic image analysis and enhancement. The grant application was ranked in the top six percent of all applications in the field.
Professor Xinghuo Yu won another prestigious ARC Discovery Grant to study variable structure control systems in networked environments. This project aims to understand the dynamic behaviours of variable structure control systems, and develop a new theory for their analysis and design tailored for networked environments. The grant provides $220,000 over three years.
