New ZIM network: High-Precision Realtime Navigation Baden-Württemberg


ZIM consortium "High-Precision Realtime Navigation B.W." at the Kick-Off-Meeting at Technologiepark Tübingen-Reutlingen (TTR)

Read more about the ZIM network at our current projects.


Presentation and test of SmartphoneRTK - App

The communication between the smartphone and an external GNSS receiver is done via Bluetooth.

The raw data of the receiver, which can be evaluated in the SmartphoneRTK, is processed as a simple (Single)-GNSS solution, as DGNSS solution with correction data or own base station or as PPP solution.

This short animation shows a 3D point cloud map of the HSKA Building-B ground floor mapped with
the Multi sensor self-referenceing 3D mapping platform NAVKArine-MSM developed at HSKA under the MSM project "MSM - Multisensor Selfreferencing 3D-Mapping System",
funded by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and Art (MWK) in the frame of the "Innovative Projects"
research program.


Wearable motion profile sensor for footballers

Within the framework of the cooperation project "Wearable Bewegungsprofil-Sensor für Fußballer" with the company "Tracktics" ( algorithms were developed for recording the profile of the movement of athletes.

Navigation for autonomous driving with special vehicles

The navigation of autonomous vehicles in out- and indoor areas is the goal of a research cooperation with KAMAG / Ulm. The navigation unit from GNSS / MEMS and camera is supplemented by dynamic inclinometers and laser scanners (SLAM). The mathematical model and the algorithms are developed further by visual odometry over monocameras.

Expansion of the NAVKArine for the use of a UAV in buildings

The flight control Navkarine FC-4 was enhanced by a camera component in a R & D project with Daimler, Sindelfingen, specifically for UAVs in indoor scenarios, eg in factory buildings. Based on image markers or visual odometry (VO) from continuous stereomatching of the environment, the navigation is supported by ITRF-consistent position information or with speed and rotation rate observations from VO.
