EU FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network
MC Impulse (Monte Carlo based Innovative Management and Processing for an Unrivalled Leap in Sensor Exploitation) is a new Initial Training Network, focussing on research and training in the field of sensor data processing. Within MC IMPULSE 14 early stage researchers and 2 experienced researchers will be recruited and trained.
The research programme will focus on the development of novel methods for real-time signal and data processing, based on data collected form sensors or networks of sensors. MC IMPULSE is expected to generate specific innovations such as:
- Advanced methods for detecting and tracking objects by processing information from (a network of) sensors
- New methods and algorithms for information fusion from multiple sensors and their efficient processing for on-line applications.
One of the key techniques that will be focussed on is Sequential Monte Carlo or Particle Filtering. MC IMPULSE joins different scientific disciplines such as: electrical engineering, communication theory, estimation theory, signal processing and detection theory, mathematics and physics.
