Thomas Pfister was born in Kirchheimbolanden in October 1982. He joined University of Kaiserslautern in 2003 to study computer science and graduated in 2010. His diploma thesis addressed the performance evaluation of multisensor-datafusion algorithms. Since August 2010, Mr. Pfister is a Ph.D. student at the Robotics Research Lab. As part of the SafeCAr project he realized Kalman filter based localization system. Since 2012 Mr. Pfister is involved in the ICARUS project to develop two mobile ground robots for search and rescue missions. His topics of research are the improvement of robots perception by increasing the robustness and accuracy in sensor measurements.
