This module aims to introduce to the students advanced model based signal processing methods and systems design theories, with illustrative case studies to demonstrate how the knowledge obtained in this module can be used in some challenging real life applications.
The module uses the specialist computation/simulation tool Matlab.
Aims and Objectives
Subject Specific Intellectual and Research Skills
Having successfully completed this module you will be able to:
- Estimate unknown system parameters from noisy measurement data
