Ondrej Straka is a research scientist at the research program Development of cybernetic control systems, identification, intelligent decision-making and communication systems within the European Centre of Excellence – New Technologies for the Information Society where he focuses on nonlinear state estimation and system identification. He is also with the Department of Cybernetics, University of West Bohemia where he holds a lecturer position.
Dr. Straka focuses his research interests on both local and global nonlinear state estimation methods, performance evaluation and fault detection in navigation systems. He has published over fifty journal and conference papers in journals such as Automatica, IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Signal Processing and in international conferences such as American Control Conference, world congresses and symposia of the International Federation of Automatic Control, IFAC, and FUSION conferences. He has participated in a number of project of fundamental research and in several project of applied research (e.g., safe train localization, attitude and heading reference system). He was involved in development of several software frameworks for nonlinear state estimation.
Dr. Straka received his Masters degree in Cybernetics and Control Engineering from University of West Bohemia and his Ph.D. degree in Cybernetics from University of West Bohemia. He has been a member of the Technical Program Committee of the FUSION conference for the last four years.
