David Calero holds a M.Sc. in Telecomunications Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya since November 2013. From 2007 to 2009, he worked on the extinct Institut of Geomatics as a undergraduate student. On January 2010, he joined to the Institut of Geomatics as a research assistant, participating in different research and industrial projects, such as:

1) TAG – Design and development of a HW/SW system for the real-time determination of trajectories from inertial, satellite, magnetic, barometric and other navigation sensors.

2) FluxPyr – Trans-border network for the assessment and management of physical resources in the Pyrenees.

3) GAL – Development of a state-of-the-art methodology for the determination of precise and high-resolution gravity field models.

4) CloseSearch – Design and implement an accurate and safe EGNOS-SoL Navigation for UAV-based low-cost SAR operations.

5) GeoTRAM – Design of a kinematic system for rail track inspection and measurement.

6) Decivel – Design of a pre-commercial product of a kinematic high-precision track the railway geometry.

7) Perigeo – Design and implementation of multi-sensor system for non-GNSS scenarios navigation.

On 2013, he started his master’s thesis at the Institute of Geomatics. Supervised by E. Angelats, his thesis called “SmartNav” focuses on the study, design and implementation of an hybrid navigation system for Smartphone devices, concretely on Android OS for indoor and outdoor positioning.

On 2014, he joined the CTTC at the Geomatics Division. He has been researching and developing several topics: Automatic platform for IMU calibration, Atomic Clock augmentation in GNSS receivers, Autonomous Rover for indoor navigation and mapping. In addition, he has been participating in different research and industrial projects, such as:

1) uTAG – Design and development of a low-cost HW/SW system for the real-time determination of trajectories from inertial, satellite, magnetic and other navigation sensors.

2) iPole – Design and development of a low-cost HW/SW system and a methodology for determining a precise ground position coordinate by using a GNSS receiver with RTK capabilities, a low-cost IMU, a low-cost processor and a geodetic pole.

3) MOTEC – Development of a HW/SW system capable to communicate via Wireless and 4G any kind of PLC to a remote computer by designing an Android APP that implements Gateway capabilities.

4) Metro-Link – Development of a HW/SW communication system capable to automatically control the doors aperture of a train between the train doors and the platform doors.

5) Cow Tracker – Development of a HW/SW project to design and implement an IoT device for remotely monitoring the position and the status of cows.

6) Timon – Development of a low-cost HW/SW system capable to provide real-time navigation solutions by using multi-sensor fusions and relying ion cooperative networks.
