VOLIERA - Video Odometry with Lidar and EGNSS for ERTMS Applications

VOLIERA - Video Odometry with Lidar and EGNSS for ERTMS Applications

VOLIERA aims to develop an innovative multi-sensor component aimed at providing relative and absolute position and odometry information suitable for the railway environment. This innovative component will be based on sensors such as for example camera, IMU, LIDAR, GNSS. The main objective is to identify a possible solution (POC) for guaranteeing position and odometry information with high availability and reliability in the railway application domain. The feasibility study logic is includes the following main tasks:
• Definition of stakeholders user requirements
• Analysis of the state-of-the-art for (a) kinematic sensors as well as absolute and relative position sensors and (b) the relative sensor fusion algorithms
• Characterization of the possible sensors in the railway environment
• System and Subsystems Requirements and Functional Architecture definition
• Proof of concept design
• Evaluation of the economical sustainability in railways application domain.
