Spring school of image processing 2012

The Spring School of Image Processing is a popular meeting point of students and researchers from several Czech institutions involved in image processing research as well as guests from abroad. The program of the 2012nd edition of the Spring School of Image Processing will consist mainly of tutorial talks given by organizers from the Department of Image Processing (ÚTIA) and participating Ph.D. students. More about the program you can find on the web of Image Processing Department.

Bayesian soft sensor: a tool for on-line estimation of the key process variable in cold rolling mills

One of the key objectives of any rolling mill control system is to keep the thickness of the processed material within the prescribed tolerance band, which can be as low as +-10 micrometers for thin strips. Failure to comply with the tolerances results in losses which, according to experts estimate, might go up to 10% of the profit for poorly equipped rolling mills. Unfortunately, no practical direct measurement of the gauge within the rolling gap is possible. Strip thickness can be measured 50--100cm after the rolling gap with a high transport delay (20--120 samples).

Models with strictly bounded noise

A state space model is frequently used for a description of real systems. Usually, some state variables are hidden and cannot be measured directly and some model parameters are unknown. Then, the need for learning, i.e., the state filtering and parameter estimation, arises. Probabilistic models provide a suitable description of the always uncertain reality and call for such approaches as Bayesian learning. Uncertainties are standardly modelled by the Gaussian distribution. This leads to Kalman-filter-based algorithms.

Electrical drives: sensorless control

Electrical drives are part of everyday world. While the technology for their control is well known and reliable, new challenges are comming with new technology and new requirements. The always present pressure for better reliability, safety and cost of production and operation are the driving force for inovation.

The electrical drives are also good laboratory to test new theoretical results. We apply the results of reasearch in areas of:
