Information and Communication Technologies
This line of research addresses problems such as signal processing and transmission in modern telecommunications networks and applications on them.
The Voice Processing and Transmission area (LPTV) focuses its research and development on technologies for conversational voice human-machine interfaces, including human-robot interaction (HRI), voice recognition and biometrics robust to noise and channel, and on the transmission of information in real time in TCP/IP (e.g., Internet) and telephone networks.
The Advanced Communications area investigates the problems of digitalization and signal coding, digital modulation and demodulation, secure communications, transfer and recovery of signals in non-deterministic media, quantitative analysis of information, as well as the study, modeling, design and development of latest generation wireless communication systems (4G LTE). Applications span from the physical to the transport layer, including topics such as mmWave, e-Health, MAC protocols, multiplexing, access techniques, and modulation schemes.
