DLR Senior Scientist Award
17 September 2013
We congratulate Dr. Patrick Robertson who was appointed by the Board to become a DLR Senior Scientist. Patrick has achieved groundbreaking results in the area of estimation theory applied to digital communications and positioning. His algorithms have found their way into each mobile phone and every DVB-T set-top box. Today he is strongly involved in the area of indoor navigation. Here he and his team succeeded for the first time to estimate a pedestrian’s location and maps of the environment based only on inertial measurements: in this approach, the sensor does not see the surroundings at all.
