Prof. Dr.-Ing. Uwe Hanebeck, chaired professor of Computer Science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany and director of the Intelligent Sensor-Actuator-Systems Laboratory (ISAS). will be presenting at ISN Conference about Information Processing in Sensor-Actuator-Networks
This talk is concerned with model-based estimation techniques used for the reconstruction of spatially distributed physical phenomena by means of sensor-actuator-networks. The challenges resulting from system nonlinearities and from decentralized estimation based on uncertain data are discussed and some specific processing methods are introduced that cope with these challenges. This includes practical filters for state estimation based on deterministic particle approximations that can be run on low-performance hardware.
About Uwe Hanebeck

About Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
On October 01, 2009, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) was founded by a merger of Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and Universität Karlsruhe. KIT bundles the missions of both precursory institutions: A university of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg with teaching and research tasks and a large-scale research institution of the Helmholtz Association conducting program-oriented provident research on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. Within these missions, KIT is operating along the three strategic fields of action of research, teaching, and innovation.
