Isaac Skog


Isaac Skog received the BSc and MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, in 2003 and 2005, respectively. In 2010, he received the Ph.D. degree in Signal Processing with a thesis on low-cost navigation systems. In 2009, he spent 5 months at the Mobile Multi-Sensor System research team, University of Calgary, Canada, as a visitingscholar. In 2011 he spent 4 months at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India, as a visiting scholar. He was a recipient of a Best Survey Paper Award by the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society for the paper In-Car Positioning and Navigation Technologies - A Survey in 2013. In 2015 he received the degree of Docent in Signal Processing from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. During the fall of 2017 he joined the Automatic Control group at Linköping University.

Research profile

The common nominator for my work has been the research and development of signal processing theories and methods for processing data from low-cost sensors, arrays of low-cost sensors, and networks of low-cost sensor nodes. Specific focus have been on sensor-near signal processing for creation of smart sensor nodes, and hierarchical information processing in networks of heterogenous data sources. The primary application areas of the research have been pedestrian navigation and tracking systems, and intelligent transportation systems and insurance telematics. Lately, my research has been expanded to also include medical and industrial condition monitoring applications. More information about my current research can be found here.

Technical Demonstrators

My research also includes the development of several complex technical demonstrators:
  • The OpenShoe platform for foot-mounted inertial navigation.
  • The Tactical Locator (TOR) system for collaborative localization of fire-fighters
  • The IF SafeDrive system used for usage-based insurances
More information about the technical demonstrators can be found here.
