Valérie Renaudin

Valérie Renaudin is a Professor at the University Gustave Eiffel. She obtained the Master’s degree in Geomatics Eng. in 1999, and the PhD in Computer, Communication, and Information Sciences at EPFL in 2009. She was Technical Director of Swissat, Samstagern, Switzerland, where she developed real-time positioning solutions based on a permanent global network of satellite navigation systems (GNSS), and Senior Research Associate of the PLAN group at the University of Calgary, Canada. She currently heads the Geopositioning Laboratory (GEOLOC) at the Gustave Eiffel University, Nantes in France, where she has built a team specializing in the positioning and navigation of travelers in multimodal transport. Her research focuses on indoor/outdoor navigation using GNSS, as well as inertial and magnetic data, especially for pedestrians to improve sustainable personal mobility. She is the topical editor of a special issue of the IEEE Sensors Journal and a member of the editorial boards of MDPI’s Sensors and Hindawi’s Journal of Sensors. She is also a member of the steering committee of the international conference “Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation”. Valérie Renaudin has received several awards including the Marie Curie European grant for the smartWALK project.
