Research interest

Navigation aims to determine the position, velocity and attitude of platforms, humans and animals. Commonly, fusion between several sensors is required to obtain accurate navigation. The Autonomous Navigation and Sensor Fusion Lab (ANSFL) researches problems in the fields of autonomous navigation, inertial navigation systems, estimation theory and related fields. Our focus is mainly (but not only) in marine platforms such as autonomous underwater vehicles, buoys, drifters and surface unmanned vehicles. Current research goals are to derive unorthodox inertial and sensor fusion algorithms, hunt for the next inertial navigation system architecture and pioneer deep learning based navigation approaches.
