BiographyIsaac Skog received his 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 a Ph.D. degree in Signal Processing with a thesis on low-cost navigation systems. In 2009, he spent 5 months with the Mobile Multi-Sensor System research team, University of Calgary, Canada, as a visiting scholar and in 2011 he spent 4 months at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India, as a visiting scholar. Between 2010 and 2017 he was a researcher at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. During the spring of 2019 he was a visiting researcher at the underwater research department at the FOI Swedish Defence Research Agency. Currently he is an assistant professor at Linköping University, Sweden. 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
Research profileThe 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 DemonstratorsMy research also includes the development of several complex technical demonstrators, some of which have been productified.
- The Lyra sensor node for elevator condition monitoring.
- 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.
