Aboelmagd Noureldin



Dr. Aboelmagd Noureldin is a Cross-Appointed Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Queen's University (since 2006) and he is also a Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Royal Military College of Canada (since 2002). His research is related to artificial intelligence, digital signal processing, multi-resolution signal analysis, spectral de-nosing and adaptive filtering with emphasis on their applications in multi-sensor system integration for vehicular navigation including GPS and inertial sensors. Dr. Noureldin holds B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (1993) and M.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics (1997) from Cairo University, Giza, Egypt. In addition, he holds Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (2002) from The University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He is the leader of the Navigation and Instrumentation Research Laboratory that provides a unique world-class facility where research activities in the fields of positioning and navigation are conducted.


Dr. Noureldin's research is in the area of digital signal processing, multi-resolution signal analysis, spectral estimation and de-nosing, optimal estimation and artificial intelligence with application to several navigation systems including GPS (Global Positioning System), mobile multi-sensor system integration and sensor networks.

The plan of Dr. Noureldin's research group aims at reaching the frontiers of mobile multi-sensor navigation systems research and design through the development of efficient and accurate theoretical and experimental tools. This research plan creates a unique opportunity to merge the sciences of position, location and navigation, artificial intelligence, sensors data fusion and optimal estimation and to target the development of new technologies that are applicable in several navigation and mobile mapping systems. Applications of such technology appear in the automotive industry (particularly vehicle navigation), aviation industry, measurement-while drilling and wellbore mapping in the oil industry and personal location and navigation. The plan emphasizes multi- and inter-disciplinary advanced research that aims to increase the effectiveness and interaction of electrical engineering theory and application through creative and innovative developments for efficient low cost, small size and reliable navigation systems that can be utilized in several applications. This research also seeks the integration of experimental and theoretical developments in mobile multi-sensor system towards high performance and reliability.
