    Vision is expected to play important roles for car safety enhancement. Imaging systems can be used to enlarging the vision field of the driver. For instance capturing and displaying views of hidden areas around the car which the driver can analyze for safer decision-making. Vision systems go a step further. They can autonomously analyze the visual information, identify dangerous situations and pro... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we introduce our recent research and development effort on energy-efficient portable video communication system design for wildlife activity monitoring. The capability of seeing what an animal sees in the field is very important for wildlife activity monitoring and research. We design an integrated video and sensor system, called DeerCam and mount it on animals so as to collect impo... View full abstract»

    The article discusses the progress of integrated electronics in terms of Gordon Moore's observation that the number of components on a single piece of silicon had doubled every year since the invention. This observation has become known as Moore's law. The contributions of device miniaturization and chip size to the increasing content of a chip were also discussed. The number of devices on a chip ... View full abstract»

    Optical fibre is regularly touted as the ultimate broadband link - an "infinite"-bandwidth medium towards which all wireline communication technologies must inexorably migrate. But before describing the signal processing employed to combat dispersion in modern optical links, a little background on dispersion in optical fibres is required. The dispersion compensation techniques and the open problem... View full abstract»
