Workshop:  Signal and Data Analysis Simulations on the Android Platform for Research and Education

GWC 487, Mar 4, 2013 - Arizona State University

JDSP logo

A workshop on performing signal and data analysis simulations on Android devices will be conducted at Arizona State University from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM (room GWC 487) on Mar 4, 2013. Participants will be provided with Android phones and tablets for performing the simulations. However, those who own a device are encouraged to bring them. Refreshments will be provided for all the participants.

The participants of this workshop will be exposed to the utility of the Android Java-DSP (AJDSP) in multidisciplinary signal and data analysis applications. The session will be interactive and participants will use and assess software by performing step-by-step online simulations using AJDSP. Examples of prepackaged online Android laboratory simulations that can be disseminated in DSP related courses will also be presented. Apart from basic modules that will be useful for DSP courses, modules for sensor interface, speech and digital communications will also be demonstrated. The workshop will be useful to instructors, students and practitioners with interests in DSP, signal analysis for music courses and other engineering applications.


Registration ($95) for the workshop is required.  Registration for ASU graduate students may be sponsored by participant support. Please email for more details.

Workshop Activities and Objectives:

This workshop will include tutorials and examples to demonstrate how instructors and students can use AJDSP for their simulations. The session will be conducted as a workshop with Android devices and participants will program and execute AJDSP simulations.

The objectives are:
    - to learn how to use AJDSP. Documentation and instruction will be given to get participants started.
    - to understand the concepts of discrete and continuous convolution.
    - to learn how to use the FFT to compute spectra of signals.
    - to learn how to use the signal generator and the filter design functions.
    - to learn how to use other pre-canned signal analysis functions.
    - to enable participants to design their own AJDSP simulations.

The workshop is intended for students, faculty and instructors in Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science and Geology and Earth Systems. Students and faculty from other engineering departments interested in signal and data analysis are also welcome to participate.

Expected Outcome:

Participants will be able to use the AJDSP software and laboratories, design their own DSP based simulations. Participants will be able to plan an adaptation of these software and materials to their own applications.
