Professor in Sensor Informatics, Linkoping University

Fredrik Gustafsson (F’11) is professor in Sensor Informatics at Department of Electrical Engineering, Linkoping University, since 2005. He received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering 1988 and the Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control, 1992, both from Linkoping University.  His research interests are in stochastic signal processing, adaptive filtering and change detection, with applications to communication, vehicular, airborne, and audio systems.  His work in the sensor fusion area involves design and implementation of nonlinear filtering algorithms for localization, navigation and tracking of all kind of platforms, including cars, aircraft, spacecraft, UAV's, surface and underwater vessels, cell phones and film cameras for augmented reality.  He is a co-founder of the companies NIRA Dynamics (automotive safety, including tire pressure monitoring systems found in more than 25 million cars), Softube (plug-ins for music studios and software solutions found in for instance Marshall and Fender), and Senionlab (indoor navigation for smartphones deployed in more than 30 countries in all six continents).

He has supervised 20 PhD and around 200 master theses. He is the author of five books, more than 200 conference papers, 100 journal papers and some 30 patents. His current h-index is 48 (Google Scholar).

He was an associate editor for IEEE Transactions of Signal Processing 2000-2006, IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems 2010-2012, and EURASIP Journal on Applied Signal Processing 2007-2012. He was awarded the Arnberg prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Science (KVA) 2004, elected member of the Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) 2007, and elevated to IEEE Fellow 2011. He was awarded the Harry Rowe Mimno Award 2011 for the tutorial "Particle Filter Theory and Practice with Positioning Applications", which was published in the AESS Magazine in July 2010, and was co-author of "Smoothed state estimates under abrupt changes using sum-of-norms regularization" that received the Automatica paper prize in 2014.
