“We want to enable the next generation of ADAS applications for safer, cleaner, and more efficient mobility”
To develop a low-cost EGNOS/EDAS + GNSS (GPS/GLONASS/Galileo) + IMU + Computer Vision based positioning module prototype for fast HW/SW in-the-loop development, which will enable enhanced positioning capabilities.
This precise positioning module will have an interface for linking with smartphone-like platforms for offering the users a friendly Human Machine Interfaces (HMI).
To develop new, computer vision based, road modelling (lane modelling), traffic signal identification and road/traffic element tracking and identification.
The road model and traffic signs will be geolocated according to data provided by the precise positioning module. This road information will be used for creating a new generation of enhanced maps that will enable new generation of driver assistance application such as lane-level operations
To create a new generation of enhanced maps that will update continuously thanks to crowdsourcing (information provided by all the inLane navigation users).
End-to-end solution will be generated for updating only specific information. This will also imply the development of standards for coding new road data content classes.
To define and develop complex fusion and hybridisation algorithms for GNSS, IMU, Map and Computer Vision technologies for reaching sub-metre accuracy (precise in-lane position)
Target performance: 5 cm accuracy related to absolute location
To validate the positioning performance improvement that can be expected from Galileo and/or EGNSS + IMU + Computer Vision for cartography generation applications
To implement a long term (six months) data collection pilot in real conditions involving end users to test the system in its final configuration under the expected range of environmental conditions in which it will be expected to operate once commercialised.
The tests will be held on highways (suburban scenario) and cities (urban scenario). Therefore two main pilot sites will be used the cities of Helmond and Eindhoven and the connecting roads A270 and N270 in the Netherlands as well as city of Barcelona and all the ringroads and highways around it
