    Project Description

    Advancements in hardware technologies led to the microminiaturisation of wireless video cameras. They are yet to reach their full potential in wireless sensor networks and mobile communications as current video coding standards consume significantly more energy to encode than decode. Although these standards suite best for one time recording and many time viewing applications e.g., TV broadcast and DVD, video sensors demand simpler encoders to conserve limited power. This project aims at investigating the design of a low-complexity video coder that can effectively trade off compression with picture quality. Outcomes of the project will improve wireless video surveillance, traffic management, patient monitoring, and virtual reality gaming.
