Eduard Angelats holds a M.Sc. in Telecommunications Engineering from Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) in 2008, where he currently is an Aerospace Science and Technology PhD student. He has a previous research background in image processing from his experience at the Institute of Imaging and Computer Vision (RWTH Aachen University, Germany). In 2009, he joined as a research assistant the former Institute of Geomatics, where he was involved in the development of innovative trajectory determination systems based on robust and hybrid navigation and focused on alternative applications. Since January 2014 is with CTTC, where he is a researcher of the GEON department as part of the Geomatics division.
His research is related to the development and implementation of algorithms for multi sensor based positioning in GNSS unfriendly environments, and algorithms for the fusion of camera and LiDAR data, for both RPAS and mobile mapping platforms. In the last years, he has also started to investigate the potential of using multispectral imagery, from RPAS or Sentinel-2, together with advanced processing techniques for the detection of archaeological non-superficial remains and for water quality control for aquaculture applications. He is also a lecturer of Master’s degree in Applications and Technologies for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UPC).
