Wide-Sense Localization Research at Linköping University
The division of Automatic Control at Linköping university has a long tradition and a strong position in Sweden when it comes to research in the wide area of localization. This research, includes SLAM applications, multi-target tracking, and sensor management with the purpose of both maximizing localization and tracking performance. In this talk I will give an overview of these activities, as well dive into a fun ongoing project where we show how novel utilization of an array of magnetometers can provide a short-term localization solution or reduce drift in an inertial navigation system.
Gustaf Hendeby (S'04-M'09-SM'17) received the M.Sc. degree in applied physics and electrical engineering in 2002 and the Ph.D. degree in automatic control in 2008, both from Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.
He is Associate Professor and Docent at the division of Automatic Control, Department of Electrical Engineering, Linköping University. He worked as Senior Researcher at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) 2009--2011, as Senior Scientist at Swedish Defense Research Agency (FOI) and held an adjunct Associate Professor position at Linköping University 2011--2015. His main research interests are sensor fusion and stochastic signal processing with applications to nonlinear problems, target tracking, and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), and he is the author of several published articles and conference papers in the area. He has experience of both theoretical analysis as well as implementation aspects.
Dr. Hendeby is since 2018 an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems in the area of target tracking and multisensor systems, and since 2021 leader of the WASP Localization and Navigation Area Cluster. In 2022 he served as general chair for the 25th IEEE International Conference on Information Fusion (FUSION) in Linköping, Sweden and Technical Chair for the 26th IEEE International Conference on Information Fusion in Charleston, SC. He was elected into the International Society of Information Fusion (ISIF) board of directors for the term 2023--2025.
