Professor Adly T. Fam and former student, Dr. Aaron Roof, have been issued patent number 8,731,293 "REPRESENTING SIGNALS FOR CLASSIFICATION."
In this invention, multiple signals with different frequencies and modulation are detected. The method and algorithm described in the patent convert the signal space into a gray level image, where patterns corresponding to different modulation types at different frequencies are detected using image processing methods. Dr. Roof, a 2013 graduate of UB EE, is the Chief Technical Officer of Vanteon Corporation.
