2-29-2008 On Wednesday we had our first post signal processing lectures meeting and reviewed student project objectives. We'll be meeting each Monday to review progress on the Projects and on Thursday on March 13th you'll present your project results and then we'll begin Image Processing.
2-20-2008 Key Deliverables: Feb 28th your Lab 3 and Lab 4 lab reports are due. Then March 13th in the Lab Period is PRESENTATION DAY for the first Project. So get cracking ... you only have about 3 weeks to get something accomplished. I will be handing Lab 5 out tomorrow and we'll let it go at five labs for the Signal Processing Portion. What we will be doing in class for the next couple of weeks is just reporting on our progress and showing intermediate progress exhibits. Typical exhibits would be things like: a) a Technical Paper that showed you how to do something you needed to do, b) a graphic or other exhibit showing your progress and acquiring data, perhaps recordings of vowels or tones, c) demonstrations of algorithms that are working that partially accomplish the task required. And of course lots of other things. You could think of this as SHOW AND TELL!
2-4-2008 COMING EVENTS: The first few deliverables will be due shortly. LABS 1 and 2 are due on February 14th Valentine's Day! I also want to get your first half PPD (Project Proposal Document) for your Signal Processing Project. Look at the hand-out which describes what a Project Proposal should contain.
NEXT TIME: (2-6-2008) Bring a 2-5 page technical paper you've researched (7-copies) to share with your fellow classmates, me, Dr. Keefer, and Bobby as well as all of you. And be prepared to discuss your ideas for you Signal Processing Project.
1-29-2008 Don't forget to turn in a list of Signals and Processing that you've thought of and research an example to talk about in class. We'll start by going around and talking about the signals and the processing and the examples and then dig further into Chapter 2.
