Research

Our research is focused on adaptive signal processing with special focus on real-time application in

Since 2010 the DSS-Group is developing KiRAT, which is an acronym that stands for Kiel Real-Time Application Toolkit. First, it was made for audio and speech signal processing. Meanwhile, it also supports medical und underwater applications.

Team

The "Digital Signal Processing and System Theory" (DSS) team welcomes you on our homepage. Currently we consist of three professors or lecturers (Ulrich Heute, Klaus Linhard, and Gerhard Schmidt), one secretary (Kathrin Büsse), one system administrator (Kevin Prehn), about fifteen internal and external PhD students, as well as several master and bachelor students. More details about us can be found in our team section.

Teaching

Currently the DSS group offers 8 lectures (7 internal + 1 external). The internal ones are presented during the normal term times, the external ones are offered as block courses in the summer break.

Currently the DSS group offers one bachelor and three master labs. If you are interested please have a look on the corresponding section on our website.

We try to offer always multi-student projects in order to teach also team work. Most of the time our projects are offered within the lecture "Signals and Systems". For information on previous projects please have a look on this section of our website.

If you want to do your bachelor or master thesis with us, please have a look on the corresponding section on our website or come over to the office of Prof. Schmidt and talk with him about possible topics that might fit to your personal needs.

On Friday, 21st of June, Jens Reermann defended his research on signals processing for magnetoelectric sensor systems very successfully. After 90 minutes of talk and question time he finished his PhD with distinction. Congratulations, Jens, from the entire DSS team.

Jens worked for about three and a half years - as part of the collaborative research center (SFB) 1261 - on all kinds of signal enhancement schemes for the new types of magnetoelectic sensors that are built by the material science researchers here in Kiel and used by our medical colleagues in the universtiy clinicum in Kiel. Jens implemented a real-time system for noise cancellation as well as a digitally contrlled analogue carrier suppression scheme (in cooperation with HF group) - to mention just a few a his contributions.

Media Center

In our media center you can find

  • pictures of us, our activities, and our research,
  • videos that are used in our lectures and scientific talks, and
  • audio examples recorded during our speech and audio experiments.

Special thanks to all the photographers in the DSS team: Jan Bajorat and Christian Lüke in the "early times", but also to Eric Elzenheimer as the photographer of the "second phd generation".

Furthermore, you can find in our media center several surveys, that help us in our research. Examples for such surveys are the subjective evaluation of communication systems or intelligibilty classification of pathologic speech examples.

Also we offer several data bases in our media center. Some of these data bases can be used for free for research purposes.
