Prof. Lyudmila Mihaylova and her team are working to develop novel methods for autonomous intelligent systems: for sensing, tracking and decision making, machine learning and their engineering applications. Prof. Mihaylova undertook pioneering work on traffic flow estimation with particle filtering for intelligent transportation systems which was followed later with developments for large scale systems, including large scale transportation and video processing systems. She has experience with a range of image modalities, including optical, thermal, LIDAR, SAR and hyperspectral image processing. Previously she had academic positions with Lancaster University (2006-2013), University of Bristol (2004-2006), and research visiting positions with the University of Ghent, Belgium, the Katholic University of Leuven, Belgium and the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Bulgaria. Her interests are in the area of nonlinear filtering, sequential Monte Carlo Methods, statistical signal processing and sensor data fusion. Her work involves the development of novel techniques, e.g. for high dimensional problems (including vehicular traffic flow estimation and image processing) and localisation and positioning in sensor networks. Prof. Mihaylova is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, an Associate Editor of Elsevier Signal Processing Journal and the Editor-in-Chief of the Open Transportation Journal. Prof. Mihaylova is a senior member of the IEEE, Signal Processing Society, the President of the International Society of Information Fusion (ISIF) and an ISIF board member.

Prof. Mihaylova has also been serving the scientific community as a member of the Programme/ Organising Committee of international conferences and symposia, including the International Conferences on Information Fusion, the American Control Conferences, EUSIPCO, conferences on Intelligent Transportation Systems and the German workshops on Multiple Sensor Data Fusion. She has given a number of invited talks, e.g. the keynote speech for the 5th IET International Conference on Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks (2013), Beijing, China, and tutorials including for the EU Marie Curie ITN (2010, Sweden, 2012, Germany) and COST-NEARCTIS workshop (2010, Switzerland). Her research is funded by sponsors such as EPSRC, EU, MOD and industry.

Research Interests

Broad research in the areas of signal processing, Bayesian methods, Monte Carlo methods, nonlinear estimation, target tracking, sensor data fusion, control, autonomous and complex systems (e.g. image and video processing, transportation systems, large scale systems) – both at theoretical and applied level. Assisted living and eHealth systems is another application area of my research.

Current Grants

I am grateful to the sponsors of my research: EPSRC, MoD/DSTL, EU, industrial and other partners. A brief description of projects of mine is given below.

  1. SETA: An open, sustainable, ubiquitous data and service ecosystem for efficient, effective, safe, resilient mobility in metropolitan areas, Horizon 2020 project, 2006-2019, co-I, jointly with Fabio Ciravegnia, PI, (2016-2019).

    SETA is set to create a technology and methodology that will address the challenges above and change the way mobility is organised, monitored and planned in large metropolitan areas. The solution will be based on the management of high-volume, high-velocity, multi-dimensional, heterogeneous, cross-media, cross-sectoral data and information which is sensed, crowdsourced, acquired, linked, fused, and used to model mobility with a precision, granularity and dynamicity that is impossible with today’s technologies. Such models will be used to provide always-on, pervasive services to citizens and business, as well as decision makers to support safe, sustainable, effective, efficient and resilient mobility. The consortium involves partners from 5 countries, UK, Italy, Spain, Poland and The Netherlands. Funded by EU, the project partners are University of Sheffield (Lead), Delft University (NL), University of Cantabria (Spain), Sheffield Hallam University (UK), Knowledge now Limited (UK), The FLOOW Limited (UK), TSS-TRANSPORT SIMULATION SYSTEMS SL (Spain), Software Mind SA (Poland), AIZOON CONSULTING SRL (Italy), AYUNTAMIENTO DE SANTANDER (Spain), Citta di Torino (Italy), Birmingham City Council, Scyfer B.V. (NL).
  2. Mobility grant with China, funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering 1 April 2016 - 31 March 2018, £9,500.
  3. TRAX : TRAcking in compleX sensor systems, EU FP7 Marie Curie project, €609,981 (2013-2017)

    The TRAX research project is an International Training Network (ITN) sponsored by the EU under the Marie Curie actions in the Seventh Framework Program (FP7). TRAX concentrates on Tracking in Complex Sensor Systems, focussing on complexities due to large volumes of data, complex object dynamics and measurement models, as well as large scale systems. The project partners are a well-known and well-respected mixture of academia, research institutes, small and large business companies, including University of Sheffield and Rinicom from the United Kingdom, Linköping University and Ericsson from Sweden, Fraunhofer FKIE from Germany, and University of Twente, Xsens and Thales from The Netherlands.
  4. Remote Sensing for Hedgerow Assessment in Agricultural Areas, Grantham centre grant £9,567. There is an imminent necessity to help analyse data of many types in automated and semi-automated manners, especially multispectral, hyperspectral, thermal, ISAR and LiDAR data. This project aims to ensemble methods for imagery data to support analysis of hedgerows in agricultural areas by synthesising data from multiple sources.

Principal Investigator of Completed Projects

  • BTaRoT: Bayesian Tracking and Reasoning over Time , £446,037, EP/K021516/1, EPSRC funded (2013-2016)
    This EPSRC funded project provided new advances in methods for reasoning about many objects that evolve in a scene over time. Information about such objects arrives, typically in a real-time data feed, from sensors such as radar, sonar, LIDAR and video. The Bayesian methodology is adopted due to its power to solve a wealth of complex inference problems, to take into account prior information and to incorporate it in flexible manners in the solutions. The main focus is on scalable approaches able to deal both with groups composed of a small number of objects (up to 20) and large groups, consisting of hundreds Partners for the project: Prof. Simon Godsill, Dr Sumeetpal S.
