ATENEA+ is foreseen as a continuation of the ATENEA project (funded under the European Commission 7th Framework Programme). The ATENEA+ project seeks to develop an advanced technology concept for seamless navigation at the cm-level regardless of the environment. It integrates the complementary capabilities of GNSS, inertial navigation and object feature-based navigation from imaging sensors, providing a sophisticated navigation solution in urban environments for a wide range of surveying applications.
The advantages of this sensor integration are maximised adding Galileo constellation and signal capabilities. Within ATENEA, the capabilities of the advanced GNSS/INS/LIDAR integrated system was demonstrated using a realistic simulation platform incorporating real measurements from field-test campaigns.
This project is the natural evolution of ATENEA, integrating the advanced technology concepts derived in the project towards the implementation in a prototype. The innovative multi-sensor real-time receiver will process GPS/Galileo signals, INS measurements, LIDAR features, optical camera images, and odometer observables. The key innovation aspects include:
