About Signal Processing
The Signal Processing Department is one out of the twelve departments in the School of Electrical Engineering. You find us at KTH Main Campus in Stockholm, Sweden. Some of our colleagues are also located at the University of Gävle.
People at the Lab
The head of the Signal Processing Department is Professor Peter Händel. Other senior staff include Professors Björn Ottersten and Magnus Jansson, Associate Professors Mats Bengtsson and Joakim Jaldén, Researchers Per Zetterberg, Allesio de Angelis and Isaac Skoog, and Department Administrator Tove Schwartz. The department also consists of several Post-Docs and PhD students. Please see "People" in the menu for details.
In collaboration with the Communication Theory Department, the Signal Processing Department is responsible for education in the signal processing and communication areas. Fourteen undergraduate courses are given every year, most of them at masters level. We are responsible for a two-year masters program in Wireless Systems, which is the most popular one at KTH. Approximately 25 master theses are completed annually in this area.
Our research activities span from fundamental research in signal processing and information theory to applied research in wireless systems, digital communications, navigation, measurement technology, and real-time implementation. We are involved in several European research projects as well as strategic projects funded by the Swedish Research Council. Our research excellence has recently been acknowledged through a five-year advanced research grant from the European Research Council. The Signal Processing Department publishes around 60 papers each year, and supervises 15-20 Ph.D. students.
Our lab facilities include a wireless MIMO-testbed/channel-sounder that has been used in European projects such as COOPCOM, WINNER, NEWCOM, and ACE. The testbed has four nodes that can be easily programmed and synchronized. A real-time laboratory for in- and outdoor positioning and navigation is under development, including a plurality of inertial navigation sensors, cameras, GPS, and an in-house developed UWB ranging system.
For audio and speech processing, a 32-channels digitally programmable amplifier and linear loudspeaker array has been developed. Advanced radio frequency measurements are performed in partnership with the Center for RF Measurement Technology, University of Gävle.
