Call for submission: iLoc--High-integrity Localization for Automated Vehicles
This workshop aims at the localization integrity problem of automated vehicles (e.g., SAE L3 and above). The concept of integrity is defined as “a measure of trust which can be placed in the correctness of the information supplied by the total system”. To guarantee the safe driving of an AV in varying environments, measures of the localization information gathered from different sensors, such as LiDAR, IMU, GNSS, are required. Continuously and reliably estimating a vehicle’s position in varying driving environments is essential for autonomous driving and safe operation. However, dynamic and complex traffic environments make high-integrity localization very challenging in the vehicular domain.
In our 1st iLoc workshop, we want to identify potential solutions to remedy the problems, such as uncertainties in both environmental perception and vehicle localization, vision-based deep learning models for integrity monitoring, and the development of standardization of integrity localization for automated vehicles.
