Yuanxin Wu is currently a Full Professor in School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. He received his Ph.D. in navigation from Department of Automatic Control, National University of Defense Technology (2005). He was with National University of Defense Technology as a Lecturer (2006-2007) and an Associate Professor (2008-2012), Department of Geomatics Engineering, University of Calgary, Canada, as a visiting scholar (2009.2-2010.2) and Central South University as a Professor (2013-2015). His current research interests include inertial-based navigation system, state estimation, inertial-visual fusion and wearable human motion sensing.
He has made substantial contributions to the fields of inertial and visual navigation, including the precision inertial navigation computation, optimization-based in-motion INS attitude alignment, INS global observability analysis, INS/odometer self-calibration, and pose-only visual geometry and algorithms of computer vision. He has published over fifty papers and selected to be Elsevier’s Most Cited Chinese Researchers (Aerospace Engineering, 2015-2018). He was the Session Chairs for the international inertial navigation conferences including DGON-ISS (2019), Saint Petersburg ICINS (2019) and IEEE/ION PLANS (2020). He serves on the Program Committee of DGON-ISS (2019-) and as an Associate Editor for The Journal of Navigation (2013-present) and IEEE Trans. on Aerospace and Electronic Systems (2016-present). He is Senior Member of the IEEE (2014-present).
