Requirements On Vehicle Positioning and Map Referencing for Co-Operative Systems - COOPERS

Applications in the area of Intelligent Communication Technologies (ICT) for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are one of the key means of enhancing efficient and safe driving on the road infrastructure. The new developments are focusing on Co-operative Traffic Management Systems with the establishment of a wireless infrastructure-to-vehicle data communication link for the transmission of safety critical as well as legal binding messages from the road operator into the vehicle. The Integrated Project COOPERS that is co-funded by the European Commission is also focusing on the continuous bidirectional infrastructure-to-vehicle communication to provide the driver in time with the relevant safety critical information. Hereby requirements on the positioning parameters and the map matching process are defined. This paper will discuss these requirements including solutions that are followed within the COOPERS project. The key element in the COOPERS approach is with the Robust Positioning Unit. This concept will be described in this paper as well as the limiting factors of currently existing navigable map-products.
