Visual odometry with ground facing camera

Speaker: Merwan Birem Company/ Institute: Flanders Make Event: 20th work meeting Date: 8 December 2015 Abstract: Odometry is the use of data from motion sensors to estimate change in position over time. Odometry is often used on mobile robots and vehicles to estimate their position relative to a starting location. As an alternative to classical […]

Decawave Ultra Wide Band (UWB) indoor positioning system

Speaker: Risang Gatot Yudanto Company/ Institute: Flanders Make Event: 20th work meeting Date: 8 December 2015 Abstract: To build a high speed high accuracy wireless positioning system, it is not enough to develop high speed high accuracy ranging devices. The ranging devices need to be integrated into a complete system that computes 3D locations with […]

Sensor Fusion for Indoor Navigation and Tracking of Automated Guided Vehicles

Speaker: Risang Gatot Yudanto Company/ Institute: Flanders Make Event: 20th work meeting Date: 8 December 2015 Abstract: Wireless indoor positioning is gaining a lot of momentum and seems to be on the verge of a breakthrough, with many potential applications. Indoor navigation and tracking of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in factories and warehouses is a […]

Pozyx

Pozyx is the first affordable and easy-to-use hardware solution that provides accurate indoor, and outdoor, positioning and motion information for Arduino. In order to achieve a positioning accuracy of a few centimeters, the Pozyx system relies on a combination of motion sensors and a novel wireless radio technology called ultra-wideband (UWB). The accuracy achieved with […]
