About the person

Thilo Sauter (M’93, SM’09, F'14) received the Dipl.-Ing. and Doctorate degree in electrical engineering from the Vienna University of Technology (VUT), Vienna, Austria, in 1992 and 1999, respectively.

From 1992 to 1996, he was a Research Assistant with the Institute of General Electrical Engineering, VUT, and was involved in research on programmable logic and analog ASIC design. Subsequently, he joined the Institute of Computer Technology, VUT, and led the Factory Communications Group.

From 2004 to 2013, he has also been the Founding Director of the Institute for Integrated Sensor Systems at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Wiener Neustadt, Austria.

Since 2013, he is with the Center for Integrated Sensor Systems at Danube University Krems, Austria. In 2014, he became a tenured Associate Professor for automation technology at VUT. His current research interests include smart sensors and automation networks with a focus on real-time, security, interconnection, and integration issues. Dr. Sauter is the Vice President of the Austrian Association for Instrumentation, Automation, and Robotics, an AdCom Member of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, and Treasurer of the IEEE Austria Section. He is author of more than 300 scientific publications and has held leading positions in renowned IEEE conferences. He is currently Past Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine and Associate Editor for IEEE Trans. Industrial Informatics and IEEE Sensors Journal.

Moreover, he has been involved in the standardization of industrial communication systems for more than 20 years.

In 2014, he was elected IEEE Fellow for his contributions to synchronization and security in automation networks.
