Initiatives & Trends

For our May 2017 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with signal processing applications of neural networks. Patent no 9,627,532 presents methods and apparatus for training a multi-layer artificial neural network for use in speech recognition.

Read about the IEEE Video and Image Processing (VIP) Cup which has the goal of implementing traffic sign detection algorithms that can robustly perform under challenging environmental conditions.

For our April 2017 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with image fusion, including new general image fusion methods, and specific applications such as image stabilization, and medical image analysis.

NASA has released its 2017-2018 software catalog, covering a wide range of areas including propulsion, health and medicine, crew and life support, data and image processing, environmental science, and aeronautics. It is free to download for anyone. Please visit https://software.nasa.gov/ to access the full software catalog.

The US National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) is pleased to announce the launch of the PerfLoc Prize Competition on March 22, 2017. This competition is about developing the best possible indoor localization and tracking app for Android smartphones. The competition participants are required to use the extensive Android smartphone data repository developed by NIST to develop their apps and have their apps’ performance evaluated through the PerfLoc Performance Evaluation Portal. The website for the PerfLoc Prize Competition is at

Remotely controlled ships, piloted by people on shore, and autonomous ships, which can take actions for themselves, are the latest beneficiaries of increasing digital connectivity and intelligence. This IEEE Spectrum articles provides an insider's perspective on autonomous ships in high seas, covering sensing, communication, collision avoidence, compelx maneuvers and more.

For our March 2017 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with iris biometrics, including sensor development, prosthetic iris preparation, camera and illumination settings and signal processing algorithms.

Udacity formed their core Self-Driving Car Team, together with Google Self-Driving Car founder and Udacity President Sebastian Thrun. Now, the online education company is building an open source self-driving car as part of its effort to offer its self-driving car nanodegree program.

The problem of making the car autonomous is broken down into several challenges. Currently, there are four challenges and the fifth is coming.

IEEE Future Directions has launched the IEEE 5G Initiative and the corresponding IEEE 5G Technical Community to address the challenges associated with 5G and lay the foundation to realize its many opportunities.

Launched in early 2015 through the support of IEEE Future Directions’ new initiatives committee, the Green ICT Initiative’s mission statement has been defined as to build a holistic approach to sustainability through ICT by incorporating green metrics throughout IEEE technical domains.
