August, 31th- 10 am :: i.c.sens Colloquia :: Is integrity for road positioning simply a siren song? :: Prof. Toledo Moreo

Navigation with Digital Maps and Electronic Design by Professor Rafael Toledo-Moreo

This is to bring to your notice that the  Research Training Group "i.c. sens" from University of Hannover is organizing an event. This group works on integration of dynamic sensor networks. More information about this research group can be found in the following link:


The details of the event are as follows:


August 31, 2018


 10:00 a.m.


 11:00 a.m.


Research Training Group (i.c. sens)


Leibniz University Hannover

The seminar will contain following information. In the vehicular positioning domain, we define integrity as a level of trust that the positioning system must provide to guarantee its performance within the requirement specification. However, when the community working on road positioning imported this concept from the aerial domain, we either underestimated the integrity problem, or overestimated the capabilities of the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) for road positioning. As the challenges associated to the procurement of high quality road positioning demand more and more multi-sensor data fusion, map-matching and complex system modeling to be capable of providing a single synergetic solution, the integrity definition needs to be adapted to account for all these new actors and the road environments, particularly hostile in cities. So far, we have not succeeded in doing so, and some authors even start to question whether it is possible at all. This talk will present the professor's view to this problem, ongoing works and possible directions.

 Now, if you think that this is just a trick to lure you into a seminar which provides boring information that is easily available on internet, let ustell you who is presenting in the seminar. The presentation will be held by  Professor Rafael Toledo-Moreo, a professor at the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena, Spain. Having an European P.hD. degree in computer science and a M.Sc. in Electronics and automation engineering under his belt, he has been awarded as one of the European "100 Young Creative Talents" for his contribution in his field of expertise and his creative potential in science, research and innovation. For more information about Professor Rafael Toledo-Moreo and his wonderful achievements, please follow this link:
