More about the speaker and colloquium can be found in the detailed news content.


In this colloquium we shall look into the development of tracking algorithms using Bayesian filtering approaches involving spherical distributions. The motivation stems from the utilization of direction-only sensors like the microphone array and the omnidirectional camera in the context of mobile robotics. Concretely, we shall focus on detecting moving objects with an omnidirectional camera mounted on a mobile robot and tracking thereof based on the von Mises-Fisher distribution and probabilistic data association.



Ivan Marković received the B.Sc. and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER), Croatia in 2008 and 2014, respectively. He is currently employed at the FER, Zagreb, as a Research and Teaching Assistant funded by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport, Republic of Croatia. During his undergraduate studies, for outstanding academic achievements, he received the ‘‘Institute for Nuclear Technology Award’’ and the ‘‘Josip Lončar Award’’ in 2007 and 2006, respectively. In 2013 and 2014 he was a visiting researcher at Inria Rennes-Bretagne Atlantique in the Lagadic group directed by Prof. François Chaumette, Ph.D. He also serves as the coordinator of the technical editing team of the Automatika journal. His main research interests are in mobile robotics, estimation theory and human–robot interaction.
