Dr. Gustaf Hendeby currently holds an Associate Professor position at
the Division of Automatic Control
at the Department of Electrical
Engineering at Linköping
University. He received his Docent degree in May 2015, his
Ph.D. in March 2008, and his Lic. Eng. degree in November 2005, all in
Automatic Control from
After obtaining his Ph.D, Dr. Hendeby remained with the Automatic Control group as a Assistant Professor for a year before moving to Kaiserslautern, Germany, in 2009 to join the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) as a Senior Scientist. In Germany he worked in the European projects PAMAP (Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme) and COGNITO (EU 7th Framework Program for Research, FP7). He acted as technical coordinator for COGNITO until the end of 2011 when he moved back to Sweden. At the same time he was responsible for the software integration of the Colibri inertial measurement units (IMUs) by Trivisio GmbH. On returning to Sweden Dr. Hendeby joined the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) as a target tracking specialist. In 2012 he rejoined the Automatic Control group as a part time Adjunct Associate Professors.
The focus of Dr. Hendeby's research is statistical and model based sensor fusion; in particular with applications in target tracking, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), positioning, and general nonlinear estimation problems. In doing so he has worked with different Kalman filter approximations (extended Kalman filter and unscented Kalman filter), as well as the particle filter. By understanding these methods better, it will be possible to utilize the waste amount of sensor data, often from low quality sensors, better and to make the algorithms more accessible by non-experts.
