Project Details

Project Description: 

This study consists of two broad fronts of studies: to improve the presently available Empirical Mode Decomposition algorithms and to establish a rigorous mathematical foundation for the generalized adaptive data analysis methodology. The success of the first research area will enhance immediate improvement of information management in a complex or significantly rich signal data system, such as the Integrated Safety System being considered by the Federal Highway Administration or for full-scale traffic control systems. The success of the second research area would enable drastic improvement of robustness and reliability of the algorithm and guarantees its further applications.

Goals

The key project objective is to attempt to develop a mathematical analysis of complex signals.
