The kick-off of stage 3: designing the localisation system

October 28, 2020

The #CLUGProject follows 5 different stages. After defining the coordination between the different partners and the system requirements, the third stage or work package 3 (WP3) was launched at the end of February. Its main objective consists in elaborating a localisation system design following an engineering system.  

In order to create this localisation system design, different steps have to be followed:  

  • Gather feedback and experiences from past studies or previous projects such as partners backgrounds that are relevant and valuable for the #CLUGProject 

  • Study and define the use of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) for the #CLUGProject 

  • Provide information regarding sensors (IMU, odometry, digital map, track side tag) and collect technical data and performances  

  • Design fusion algorithm(s) providing position (location and speed) and then develop fusion algorithm(s) prototypes 

  • Define the functional and physical architecture, the external and internal interfaces and check the global system consistency  

  • Conduct detailed safety analyses  

  • Check performances analyses (availability, accuracy and integrity of the data)  

  • Study EGNOS evolutions and Galileo future signal structures
