Mattias Tiger


Mattias Tiger is a senior PhD Candidate under the supervision of Associate Professor Fredrik Heintz. His research focuses on trajectories in the context of Autonomous Robotics and Intelligent Transportation Systems. He investigates a holistic perspective on models, and manipulation, of state space trajectories throughout reasoning, learning and interaction capabilities of intelligent cyber-physical agents and systems. Mattias has experience from working with large-scale trajectory data sets from the public transportation sector, is a contributing part of the WARA-PS demonstrator community and has demonstrated his research in extensive simulations, including high-fidelity 3D simulators, and running onboard real robotic platforms interacting with humans for safe but task effective operations. He is interested in how to realize safe, efficient and effective autonomy, effectuating explicit uncertainty quantification and transparent decision making, in an ever-changing environment.

In 2008 Mattias enrolled to the LiU program Civilingenjör i Datateknik and completed his Masters degree in 2014 being awarded the Swedish AI Society Best AI Master's Thesis Award. He started his PhD studies in 2015. Mattias is a member of the National Graduate School in Cmputer Science (CUGS) and an affiliated batch 1 Autonomous Systems student of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP). He was also technical project lead for LiU Humanoids during 3 years, competing in RoboCup Standard Platform League (SPL) in China (2015), Germany (2016) and Japan (2017).
