- Curriculum vitae
Johannes Wendeberg was born in 1981 in Schwäbisch-Gmünd, Germany. He studied Computer Science at the University of Freiburg and graduated in 2009 with the master's degree (M.Sc.). Since December 2009 he is a PhD student at the Computer Networks and Telematics chair at the University of Freiburg under advice of Prof. Dr. Christian Schindelhauer within the graduate school Embedded Microsystems. His work focuses on algorithms for signal localization.
Particle Filtering: Tracking algorithm for a continuous ultrasound beacon, based on particle filtering of TDOA signals. By probabilistic modeling of the sender and the receivers we achieve high robustness of initialization of the receivers and precise estimation of the beacon.
Cone Alignment: Tracking of an ultrasound beacon using TDOA signals. The receiver is attached on top of a RC model car driving on a random path. The receivers are located at unknown positions, and no anchor points are given. The Cone Alignment algorithm, an iterative spring-mass simulation, calculates both the receiver positions (green) and the position of the ultrasound beacon.
