Hamidur Rahman, Doctoral student


Hamidur Rahman is a doctoral (PhD) student since November, 2015 in Intelligent Systems group of Innovation, Design and Engineering (IDT) in Mälardalens University. He finished his Licentiate degree in June 2018. The title of his Licentiate Thesis was An Intelligent Non-Contact based Approach for Monitoring Driver’s Cognitive Load. He is planning to defense his PhD thesis in February 2021. 

Hamidur's main research area is Artificial Intelligence mainly machine learning, deep learning. At present, he is a last year Ph.D. student in computer science, and in the last 5 years, he has conducted research and developed methods for non-contact vision-based solutions in health monitoring, driver monitoring, indoor navigation using machine learning, deep learning, image processing, and computer vision technology.

In his Ph.D. thesis, he has used the driver’s facial image sequence to extract physiological parameters for the identification of driver cognitive load. The significant contributions of his thesis include data collection using a non-contact sensor (i.e., camera sensor), feature extraction using facial images, and the development of machine learning and deep learning models for cognitive load classification. He has also worked on other projects such as INVIP: Indoor navigation for visually impaired using deep learning, Into DeeP: Deep learning for industrial applications, and HR R-peak detection quality index analysis: Non-contact based heart rate R-peak detection using facial image sequence. He worked on the 3D-image reconstruction for forwarding camera motion In his master's thesis, .

During his doctoral study, he has worked on several projects collaborated with the Volvo Car, Toyota Europe, The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI), SenseAir, Autoliv, Karolinska Institute, Prevas, and Anpasarna. He has published scientific articles in international journals and both international and national conferences. He is also involved in teaching and developing courses and course materials. He has experience supervising bachelor and master student’s thesis.
