Integrity—Localization beyond accuracy

Localization is a vehicle’s ability to identify where it is in the world. For autonomous vehicles, accurately and quickly locating themselves in their environment is critical. The autonomous sensor suite consists of many sensors – including but not limited to optical, ranging and inertial – providing relative position. High-accuracy GNSS is the only absolute position sensor to provide the accuracy and confidence that autonomy requires. Sensors are only as good as the confidence in the output. This session will look at how integrating integrity into the autonomous sensor suite improves overall system safety.
