For autonomous driving, ITS and smart-phone applications, it is significant to know the accurate self location. We focus on self-localization in urban canyons and are aiming to establish self-localization methods with high accuracy utilizing GNSS such as GPS and on-board/smart-phone sensors such as an inertial sensor.
For autonomous driving and Advanced Driving Assistant Systems (ADAS), it is essential to maintain safety for pedestrian and bicyclist. We approach various layers from pedestrian detection to behavior recognition for this theme.
3D maps are indispensable for self-localization technology such as camera and laser based ones and our 3D-GNSS. Accuracy of the maps affects on results of the self-localization. We are working on 3D map generation and correction methods.
