Recently we have concluded an FP7 project, called the TAXISAT project, in which we worked for building a driverless car which uses GNSS, stereo visual odometry and laser obstacle detection for driving in any kind of environment.
Its main use is the “last mile problem”, such as moving persons in a taxi airport area, entertainment parks, from parkings to stadiums and so on.
We are proud of the results achieved here in Vicomtech-IK4, and willing to continue working on this kind of technologies, especially in stereo vision.
There has been many people involved in this project, but I would like to metion my colleague Leonardo de Maeztu, who has leaded the optimization of the algorithms and the integration and testing stages.
Hope you like it!
