Daniel RoggenSince 2005 I am senior research fellow in the Wearable Computing Laboratory, ETH Zürich. My professional contact info is available here.
My activities center on context awareness - especially human activity and gesture recognition - in wearable and pervasive computing, with emphasis on novel adaptive and learning algorithms, and multi-sensor correlation and fusion, targetting miniature embedded platforms.
Keeping examples of impressive adaptation capabilities found in some bio-inspired systems, I have a particular interest in methods that improve the real-world robustness of context-aware systems.
I co-initiated and coordinate the EU FP7 FET-Open project OPPORTUNITY, where we investigate novel methods for context-awareness in opportunistic sensors configurations. I am active in the EU FP7 FET-Proactive project SOCIONICAL, where I am interested in the machine understanding of crowds by means of sensor networks and complexity science models.
Prior to that, I carried out my PhD at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems of EPFL, where I graduated in 2005. During my PhD I developed bio-inspired electronic circuits with fault-tolerance, learning, and developmental capabilities that were applied to the control of autonomous mobile robots and to signal processing. This work was carried out in context of the EU FP5 FET project POEtic.
