The Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation Conference is a yearly event that gathers researchers, academia and industry from the field of positioning and navigation. This year’s conference took place in Nantes (France) where Dina Bousdar Ahmed was awarded with the Best Presentation for Track A “Ubiquitous Geolocation Technologies”. At this conference, Dina presented her paper entitled 3D loose-coupled fusion of inertial sensors for pedestrian localization.

Last 14th of November our life demo on the topic Cooperative Relative Positioning of Vehicles was hosted by the Next Generation Car Forum (NGC-Forum) at DLR Oberpfaffenhofen.
Two vehicles were equipped with the Cooperative Relative Positioning framework and drove maneuvers in real traffic outside of the DLR campus between Oberpfaffenhofen and Gilching. The visitors of the NGC-Forum 2017 were able to experience life the estimation of the target-vehicle’s position processed in real-time at the ego-vehicle. The influence of the fusion with a radar sensor or the degradation in the vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication could be analyzed in real-time. We showed how a cooperative approach based on V2V communication is able to effectively extend the ranging capabilities of common ranging sensors.
