Research Group: Signal Processing and Control Group

Currently Active: 

The analysis of signals lies at the heart of studies in acoustics, dynamics, audiology and human sciences and as a basis for control of sound and vibration. The Group was formed as a focus for signal processing and control techniques and, as such, interacts with the other groups in ISVR. We are involved in a wide range of applications, from aircraft vibration, through active noise control and clinical patient monitoring, to the study of acoustic signalling of bats, dolphins and other marine mammals. Our extensive list of collaborators includes colleagues across the University (e.g. from Science and Engineering, Ocean Sciences, Medicine, Rehabilitation), local hospitals, and industry and academia at home and abroad. We run a number of short courses on signal processing techniques for industry and for clinical medicine.


Active Control of Sound and Vibration
Biomedical Signal Processing
Signal Processing for Underwater Acoustics

Short courses related to signal processing and active control

Staff from the Signal Processing and Control Group are involved in teaching courses in the areas of: 

Active Control of Sound and Vibration
Biomedical Signal Processing
Real-time Signal Processing
Time-frequency Analysis of Signals and Systems
