InDrive Project Kick off Meeting

1 February 2016

The InDrive project (Automotive EGNSS Receiver for High Integrity Applications on the Drive) will kick off on 2nd and 3rd of February in Prague at European GNSS Agency (GSA) premises: the project is funded by the Horizon 2020 program within the call “Applications in satellite navigation” and is coordinated by Riccardo Scopigno, head of Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions Research Area.
The main objective of the InDrive project proposal consists of the development and demonstration of innovative but close-to-market solutions for semi-automatic driving, heavily relying on accurate and high-integrity satellite navigation.

One of the trends in automotive evolution is towards vehicles with autonomous capabilities: vehicle manufacturers are introducing Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) at a rapid pace. InDrive will face the semi-automatic driving challenge in an innovative way using three technologies: GNSS receiver and other low cost sensors, ADAS system and intra-vehicle wireless communication (V2V). In InDrive, the concept of integrity is extensively investigated and addressed that covers not only pure E-GNSS positioning but also targets heterogeneous positioning using low-cost sensors. Camera vision, Vehicle-to-vehicle commutations and other sensors will be used to enhance the precision and the reliability of the positioning thanks to Bayesian approach for the analysis of data.
InDrive involves the Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions and Navigation Technologies Research Areas of ISMB and the partnership is composed by Centro Ricerche FIAT (Italy), Baselabs GMBH, (Germany), Facit Research GmbH (Germany), Infotech (Turkey), Magneti Marelli (Italy) and Technical University of Chemnitz (Germany).
