EB robinos Positioning

Optimized positioning information for automated driving applications

Information on the precise vehicle position is a key enabler for automated driving. As different functions need different positioning information in terms of quality, safety, or update rate, EB robinos Positioning provides separated data streams to achieve an optimal performance.


Three different positioning information for various features provide best results

Interoceptive positioning focuses only on in-vehicle sensors (e.g. wheel-ticks, gyros) and provides a relative local position information with high reliability and update rate to serve short-term focused algorithms (e.g. high frequency controller). Exteroceptive positioning uses sensors perceiving the vehicles environment (e.g. LIDAR, camera), and provides a relative local position information with is much more long-term stable than the interoceptive information to serve e.g. automated parking. Global positioning also uses globally referenced information (e.g. GPS) to provide a geo-referenced position. This serves applications like tactical planning or navigation.

Covers many applications

EB robinos Positioning serves local and global geo-referenced automated driving functions like lane following, path planning, tactical planning, or automated parking.

Optimizes software re-use

EB robinos Positioning is part of EB robinos, which is an application-layer architecture with open interfaces for automated driving. EB robinos Positioning is one of a range of EB robinos software modules for different functionalities. The defined interfaces allow optimized software re-use and the development of brand-specific systems.

Integrates with other systems

EB robinos Positioning supports the EB driver assistance development platform, EB Assist ADTF, and a wide range of other driver assistance platforms from various suppliers.
