Thomas Wiedemann

I am an external PhD student. While I am enrolled at Örebro University, I am working for the German Aerospace Center (DLR) at the Institute of Communications and Navigation close to Munich. Previously, I received my bachelor and master degree from the Technical University of Munich at the department of mechanical engineering.

My current research and PhD is focused on Mobile Robot Olfaction. Within this field I am particularly interested in an exploration strategy for a multi-robot system with the goal to find unknown gas sources or leaks. To this end, I am making use of a model-based approach where a partial differential equation serves as a physical model for gas dispersion. Besides, I am interested in Sparse Bayesian Learning techniques to incorporate prior assumptions about the unknown gas source distribution.
