Hardware and software platform for designing and evaluating vehicle-localization solutions
What Is Vehloc?
Vehloc is Leti’s localization solution designed to support the next generation of Intelligent Transport System (ITS)applications and services. It includes:
- Dual-frequency RTK-GNSS receiver, Dual antenna for true heading and fusion with tactical grade IMU- Position accuracy: 2 cm / attitude accuracy: 0.03 deg
- Standard and high-accuracy GNSS receivers- Consumer and tactical grade IMU- An impulse radio-ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) transceiver
- State-of-the-art GNSS-IMU loose & tight coupling fusion- Cooperative algorithms, including GNSS, IMU and IR-UWB
Vehloc accelerates positioning and navigation-system product design from algorithm development to implementation, relying on highly flexible online/offline validation.It helps explore advanced cooperative or hybrid data-fusion systems suitable for harsh operating environments, such as:
Leti’s solution helps generate test vectors and databases for evaluation purposes with respect to “ground truth”and relative benchmarks of advanced fusion algorithms.
A complete vehicle test platform, including a ground-truth system
Flexibility and modularity of validation procedures
Unique possibility to evaluate most innovative localization approaches and advanced technologies in a realistic vehicular context, such as:
Future developments will include:
