  2. Advanced Algorithms of Computer Graphics

    The topic focuses algorithms of computer graphics and generally computer image synthesis. Its main goal is to research algorithms so that their features and application possibilities are better understood, so that they are deeply analyzed, so that they are improved or newly created, and so that they are efficiently implemented e.g. in CPU, in CPU with acceleration through SSE instructions, in embeded systems, in embedded systems with FPGA, or in other systems, such as x86/64, ARM, Xeon PHI, or other cores. Algorithms of interest include 3D model processing and acquisition. The programming work is expected in C, C++, C#, assembly language, CUDA, OpenCl, VHDL, or other. The algorithms of interest include:

    • rendering using selected computer graphics methods (such as ray tracing, photon mapping, direct rendering of "point clouds", etc.),
    • reconstruction of 3D scenes from images and/or video, eventually also fusing with other sensors, such as LIDAR,
    • new algorithms of graphics and image synthesis suitable for mobile and embedded systems,
    • modern algorithms of geometry suitable for applications in cpmputer graphics and perhaps also 3D printing,
    • methods of video processing in the form of "cartoon", with false colours, with simulation of painterly techniques, etc., 
    • emerging algorithms of 3D synthesis, holography, wavelet transform, frequency transform, etc.

    After mutual agreement, individually selected algorithms can be considered as well as soon as they do belong to the general topic.

    Modern operating systems (OS) must meet many requirements not only in terms of flexibility and efficiency of their execution on recent computing platforms, but also in terms of dependability of their kernels and services they provide to the application layer. The aim of the project is:

    • to analyze the actual state in the area of dependability of OS kernels / services,
    • to identify (in terms of dependability) negative effects and their impact to dependability of the application layer,
    • to propose a method for increasing dependability of OS kernels / services,
    • to evaluate an impact of the method to dependability of OS kernels / services and operation of the application layer.

    The project can be oriented into various directions, such as low-power applications / OS or application / OS designed to run in an embedded or a multi-core environment. During the project, a "conventional" OS such as Unix, Linux, Android, Windows, iOS or a specialized OS such as QNX, uC/OS-I (II, III), FreeRTOS, MQX can be utilized.
