Ubiquitous Localization for an improved mobility

While several decades ago, GEOLOC's research included a significant part of applied robotics to develop the infrastructure, today it focuses on self-sufficient approaches to locate mobile objects, including persons, cars and goods, in order to enhance novel mobility services and navigation functionalities.

This research aims at assisting autonomous transport in all surroundings and for all mobility profiles. For example, contrary to guiding vehicles by the infrastructure, we focus on getting rid of a pre-equipped infrastructure and gain in autonomy. The aim is to propose ubiquitous localization approaches in all environments.

This research contributes also to the Urban Tomography axis of the "Institut de Recherche en Sciences et Techniques de la Ville" (IRSTV), which is co-animated by V. Renaudin and M. Servière. It includes the use of geomatics data (3D GIS, PMR databases, etc.) to improve urban mobility and urban knowledge. This research aims also at customizing geolocalization methods and systems to the different use cases.
