Accurate to the decimeter

A new system should enable self-propelled cars to find their way better than with GPS



Freiburg, Jul 19, 2019

Traveling down the wrong street, turning too soon at an intersection, even when meticulously following the navigation’s directions: Drivers sometimes wander aimlessly through an area due to poor satellite reception in cities; GPS accuracy has indeed decreased. Researchers from the Faculty of Engineering in Freiburg are developing a new system that will enable self-propelled cars to find their way down to the nearest meter. The highlight: For a city like Freiburg, the map is only a few megabytes and will be accessible with a standard mobile phone processor.
