Ingvar Gustavsson was born in Karlskrona, Sweden in 1943. He was awarded the MSEE and Dr. Sc. degrees from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm in 1967 and 1974. After completing his military service in 1968, he worked as a development engineer at Jungner Instrument AB in Stockholm. In 1970, he joined the computer vision project SYDAT at the Instrumentation Laboratory, KTH. In 1982, he was appointed Head of the Instrumentation Laboratory. Together with another research scientist he founded a private company providing automatic inspection systems for industrial customers in 1983. In 1994 he returned to the academic world to take up his current position as Associate Professor of Electronics and Measurement Technology at Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden. His research interests are in the areas of Instrumentation, Remote Labs, Industrial Electronics, and Distance Learning. He is co-chair of the Scientific Advisory Board of the International Association of Online Engineering (IAOE) and is a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Online Engineering.
