This course starts off discussing concepts and applications of the measurement of physical phenomena and the processing of measured signals. Next spectral analysis and filtering are discussed as examples of processing linear signals. Next, statistical signal processing and adaptive signal processing are discussed as examples of nonlinear signal processing. Finally, analysis methods for analyzing and evaluating signals are discussed. To make machines and systems move in tune with their surrounding environment, it is necessary to obtain and evaluate necessary information from physical phenomena. The goal of this course is for students, as a first step, to acquire the knowledge and technology to measure and analyze phenomena.
By the end of this course, students will learn the following:
1) Understanding of the measurement and digitization of the information in a phenomenon.
2) Understanding of the basic and advanced processing of time series signal.
3) Skills to apply the knowledge listed above.
