If you are interested in trend removal, please have a look in the following chapter. Christin Bald, Julia Kreisel, and Gerhard Schmidt put some ideas by means of written words and Matlab code into this chapter. Beside conventional methods such as highpass filtering, robust and "cheap" nonlinear / time-invariant schemes are discussed.

 

Robust (recursive) vector norm computation can be found here. If you one had problems that vectors norms became negative after a while when computed recursively, have a look in this chapter written by Katharina Rebbe, Gerhard Schmidt, and Owe Wisch.

Research

Our research is focused on adaptive signal processing with special focus on real-time application in speech communication in adverse environments, medical applications, and underwater systems.

Since 2010 the DSS group is developing KiRAT, an acronym that stands for Kiel Real-Time Application Toolkit. First, it was made for audio and speech 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 four professors or lecturers (Jan Abshagen, 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 (6 internal + 2 external). The internal ones are presented during the normal term times, the external ones are offered as block courses in the summer break.

Furthermore, the DSS group offers two 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.

Recent News

Last Wednesday (17.10.2018) we obtained our first audiometer. With this audiometer we are able to conduct both pure-tone audiometry up to 12.5 kHz and basic speech intelligibility tests. The tests may be perfomed for either air/bone conduction or in the free field. Now we can analyze the hearing capabilities of our test subjects, which will help us when performing subjective tests. Special thanks to the DFG for financial support for the audiometer.

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.
