FPGA implementation of adaptive subsampling.

Implementation of an efficient adaptive subsampling pipeline involving a neural-network-based object detector (YoloV3, tinyYoloV3, ECO) and classical computer vision algorithms on a Xilinx FPGA board.

Event camera object tracker

Trained off-the-shelf neural networks to detect objects from a neuromorphic (event) camera dataset. Leveraged use of representation techniques found in literature such as voxel-grid and intensity reconstruction from events.

N-MNIST object tracker.

Trained custom Convolutional Neural Network to perform detection and classification of MNIST digits captured with an event camera.

Denoising neural network.

Trained UNet to correct noisy images. Custom dataset generated by simulating photon-shot noise, read noise and ADC noise.

Conv-Pool engine design.

Developed a 4x4 convolution and maxpooling engine for deep learning applications and implemented on 7nm CMOS technology. Wrote behavioral System Verilog module. Synthesized using Design Compiler. Performed palce-and-route using Innovus. Accomplished DRC and LVS clean in Virtuoso. Assured functional verification at every step.
