Professor Michler studied Electrical Engineering at Technical University, Dresden, where he graduated in 1993. After having received his diploma he continued research work there at the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering about sensitivity and robustness analysis of linear systems. In 1997 he started working with Video-Audio-Design GmbH, Dresden, as project manager in the areas of digital broadcasting, sensor systems with data fusion in mobile transport vehicles.
In 1999 he received his PhD from Technical University Dresden with magna cum laude for his work about the “Analysis of uncertainty in linear control systems”.
In 2000 Prof. Michler joined the Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems in Dresden (IVI) to continue his research work about telematics services in transportation applications, integrated acquisition, transmission and processing of traffic information.
In 2005 he was made a professor at the Dresden University of Applied Sciences in signal processing and electronic measurement techniques. Since 2008 he holds the chair for Transport Systems Information Technology which is part of the Institute for Traffic Telematics at the Technical University Dresden. The focus of research is applying currently developing and existing information technology to traffic systems of tomorrow.
From 2010 to 2017 Prof. Michler was the Head of department TU-Researchgroup at Fraunhofer Institute of Traffic- and Infrastructuresystems, department localisation, information and communication. The joint research group dedicated to applied research about localization methods, energy efficiency of sensors and data transmission.
Currently Prof. Michler is Scientific Advisory Board member of various companies (i.e. MRK Group), different organisations (i.e. Shift2Rail) or international conferences (i.e. MT-ITS)
