The Advanced Signal Processing Group (GTAS, in Spanish) is part of the Communications Engineering Department of the University of Cantabria. It is located at the E.T.S.I. Industriales y Telecomunicaciones, Avda Los Castros s/n. Santander 39005, SPAIN.

The GTAS conducts research in the development of digital signal processing algorithms for communications, as well as in machine-learning techniques and nonlinear modeling. Currently, the research activity of the GTAS is focused on the following topics:

  • Signal processing techniques for MIMO communication links.
    • CSI (Channel State Information) estimation techniques, synchronization, detection techniques,...
    • Capacity analysis of MIMO links.
    • Development of hardware MIMO testbeds and performance evaluation.
  • Machine-learning techniques and their applications.
    • Kernel methods, neural networks and adaptive information processing systems.
    • Multivariate statistical techniques: PCA, CCA and ICA.
    • Nonlinear modeling.
