EOC successful at "Copernicus Masters 2013"
On 5 November 2013 the winners of the “Copernicus Masters” competition were selected at the Alte Kongresshalle in Munich. Hartmut Runge from the Remote Sensing Technology Institute (IMF) of DLR’s Earth Observation Center won the “BMW Connected Drive Challenge” as well as the overall “Copernicus Master 2013” award. His idea could be a step toward achieving automated vehicle navigation. It involves combining data on the location of objects as detected by car sensors with highly precise object detection data from satellite radars such as on Sentinel 1. The goal is highly precise localization of a motor vehicle independent of GPS.
