University of Ljubljana is one of the three universities in Slovenia. The User-adapted Communications & Ambient Intelligence Lab (LUCAMI) at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering has a highly experienced team of researchers. The laboratory is organised into several research groups. Head of the Laboratory is Prof. Andrej Košir.
Research, development and projects
The main research area is multimedia signal processing with emphasis on image and video processing, coding, visual object segmentation, tracking, and recognition. Real-time and parallel algorithm implementations are also investigated. However, through intensive involvement in international R&D projects during the last decade, the team's profile has changed. A lot of research effort is now dedicated to content search and retrieval mechanisms. It is based on content descriptors and semantic knowledge representations, supported by personalization algorithms and adaptive user interfaces. The Laboratory is one of the leading developers of new interactive multimedia services for the emerging fields of interactive television, peer-to-peer networks, distributed multimedia databases, remote video surveillance and medical teleconsulting. Our list of expertise includes networking, content search and storage in distributed systems, interactive television technologies (TV-Anytime, MPEG 21), personalised multimedia content retrieval and other multimedia related technologies.
During the last 10 years the Laboratory has been participating in several international consortia, conducting applied industrial research with research partners that include Philips, Nokia, BBC, NOB, IMEC, RAI, Optibase and Fraunhofer Institute.
Beside the research capabilities, the group has also an established team of software developers mastering C/C++ and Java development in order to be able to fulfil advanced implementation requirements. Furthermore we can provide dynamic web development (PHP, SQL databases). We master simulation tools such as Matlab and SimuLink.
