Dr. Markus Miezal

Position: Researcher

After receiving this diploma in computer science in 2010 from the University of Bremen, Markus Miezal joined the AV department. He worked in the area of Kalman-Filter-based sensor fusion, in particular visual-inertial pose estimation but also model-based inertial human motion tracking. From 2015 to 2022 he joined the wearHEALTH group at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern where he continued his research and received his PhD in 2021. Since 2023 he is back at DFKI to work part-time on European projects. His research focusses efficient real-time self-configuring sensor fusion in the context of inertial motion tracking of things.
