The project eMAPs is funded by the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency GSA/GRANT/08/2017
The main objective of eMAPs addressed in this proposal is to develop a low-cost, cloud-based multi-sensor premium mass market platform which will hybridize data generated by a multi-frequency multi-constellation GNSS receiver, an IMU and cameras.
By developing an innovative, low-cost, compact, high performance premium receiver, eMAPs will provide a targeted 30cm vehicle’s 2D position accuracy (95%) and high definition urban maps which will benefit to all smart cities stakeholder groups: the travellers, the public transport operators and the urban authorities.
Through the deployment of the eMAPs platforms, the accuracy and the definition of the maps will be continuously improved by the amount of real environment data collected by the fleet of equipped vehicles. In addition, eMAPs is foreseen to be not only a passive user of these open license platforms but also an active player and contributor to them in order to optimise the dissemination of results to the European citizens.
