 Professor Fredrik Gustafsson, a Royal Swedish Academy of Science award winner and well-respected authority on scholastic signal processing, will head the Chair.
It is expected that this partnership will significantly strengthen the efforts of Gustaffson’s research group, which has been focused on Sensor Informatics at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Linköping University, Sweden.
The new Chair will also be part of the Biomedical Signals and Systems research group headed by Professor Peter Veltink, a researcher considered to be a pioneer in the application of MEMS motion sensors for measurement of body motion.
The director of MIRA, Professor Clemens van Blitterswijk, supports this partnership: “Talent attracts talent. Xsens has established itself as a leader in the field of 3D motion tracking based on MEMS inertial sensors. We have committed ourselves to further strengthen the excellent position we have together to maximize our combined future impact in this exciting field.”
Blitterswijk adds: “Miniature sensors are becoming ubiquitous – the next challenge is to make sense of all that data. The local eco-system we are building with world class brains, facilities and businesses will enable a new generation of entrepreneurs to be successful.”
Along with new research projects, an advanced course on optimal estimation, sensor fusion, and tracking with a focus on biomedical applications is expected to be offered.
CTO and Founder of Xsens, Mr. Per Slycke, also reflected on the new partnership: “As an entrepreneur, and University of Twente alumnus, I am very excited about this initiative. Not only will it ensure Xsens access to top-class future employees trained in stochastic signal processing for 3D tracking, but more importantly we are looking forward to support new spin-offs from the University to see the knowledge and business ecosystems thrive.”
