Course aims:

Acquire knowledge about analysis and interpretation of data and information
Development of hardware and software applications for the field of intelligent systems and industrial informatics by choosing the optimal solution, designing a functional and integrated testing plan, interpreting the results, comparing them with the expected ones and developing the correction method
Processing of complex signals (voice, data, text, images), with encryption, compression
Modeling, implementing, testing, using and maintaining advanced electronic systems.
The applications aim to familiarize students with the general techniques of form recognition. Students must design (at least in Matlab) applications for the recognition of the following fields:  medical diagnosis;  automotive (pedestrian recognition, traffic signs, etc.);  biometrics;
