While a Post Doc at Disney Research, Matthew Trotter led research and experimentation on football localization and gesture recognition. He worked closely with Research Scientist Joshua Griffin on methods for improving the estimation accuracy of position tracking of a transmitting loop antenna in a football over a finitely conductive ground plane. His work on gesture recognition involves a combination of electromagnetic and machine learning techniques. Prior to working with Disney, he received his Ph.D. from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). He focused on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and wireless sensor networks. He received his MS degree in ECE from Georgia Institute of Technology and his BS degree in ECE from the University of Texas.
