Vehicle state estimation is a vital task when it comes to automotive testing. From the vehicle concept development, and all the

way down to the ADAS validation, knowing the state of a vehicle at a specific time instance is a cornerstone of automotive R&D.

 

The objective of this student project, is to develop an own algorithm for estimating the state of a given vehicle, including

position, pose, velocity over ground and acceleration.

For this, the student will make use of cost-effective inertial measurement units, as well as a GPS receiver for correction data.

For online processing, a PIC will be provided; and offline processing will take place in Matlab environment.

The students will then compare their algorithms to state-of-the-art sensor technology.
