Prof. Dr. Daniel Watzenig, Graz University of Technology and Virtual Vehicle Research Center, Austria
Daniel Watzenig received his doctoral degree in electrical engineering from Graz University of Technology, Austria, in 2006. In 2009 he received the venia docendi (associate professorship) for Electrical Measurement and Signal Processing. Since 2017 he has been a Full Professor of Automated Driving at the Institute of Automation and Control, Graz University of Technology. In addition, he is Divisional Director and Scientific Head of the Automotive Electronics and Software Department of the Virtual Vehicle Research Center in Graz. Since 2015, he has been the Vice President of the ARTEMIS Industry Association (European Research Association on Embedded Control Systems).
His research interests focus on sense & control of automated vehicles, digital signal processing, uncertainty estimation and quantification, and stochastic optimization. He is the author or co-author of more than 160 peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, patents, and articles. In 2005 he served as a visiting researcher at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, working on multi-sensor data fusion. In 2011 and 2017 he served as a visiting researcher and guest lecturer at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He is the Austrian representative (appointed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport) of Electrified, Connected, and Automated Vehicles within the International Energy Agency (IEA). Since 2016 he has been the Chair of the Task Force on “Methods and Tools for Virtual Development and Validation” of the European Automotive Research Partners Association (EARPA).
