Research Fellow, Docent Björn Olofsson


I received the M.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics in June 2010 and the Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control in September 2015, both from Lund University. Since May 2016, I work at the Division of Vehicular Systems, Department of Electrical Engineering at Linköping University.

My research interests are in autonomy of vehicles and robots. More specifically, I do research within motion planning and optimal motion control for both ground vehicles and robot manipulators. I am involved in the ELLIIT Excellence Center in a project investigating autonomous, optimal vehicle maneuvers. I also participate in the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems, and Software Program (WASP), within the Automated Transport Systems cluster.
