Project: HLS Implementation of Clustering Code

Developing firmware for the ATLAS detector, utilizing High-Level Synthesis (HLS) to efficiently implement clustering algorithms for charged particle data. The goal is to enhance real-time data analysis capabilities by optimizing the identification and grouping of particle events within the detector's complex environment using local coordinates while working in conjunction with other steps of FPGA based pipeline.
