WEpods: development of an autonomous transportation system in Gelderland

In WEpods, we are developing autonomous vehicles for public transportation, on the Wageningen Campus and to the Ede-Wageningen trainstation. We work on the localization system of these vehicles, based on advanced GPS positioning, vehicle pose sensors, wheel odometry, and an advanced laser scanning solution. A good estimate of the vehicle’s pose on the map is essential for most other subsystems of WEpods.
