RAILway Ground truth and digital mAP

Project description

High-quality data driving innovative trains

Innovation in railways faces two major challenges: the lack of high-quality observations with ground truth data, which are essential to develop new navigation systems, and a modernised process mapping current train tracks with low cost and obtaining mapping information directly from trains in operation. To address these challenges essentially requires a methodology to collect and assemble the data with minimal cost. The EU-funded RAILGAP project aims at green, safe, sustainable, smart mobility trains. The project will develop advanced high-accuracy, high-precision ground truth and digital maps, essential elements of an EGNSS train positioning system and a verification and validation environment. RAILGAP will further collect massive amounts of data based on commercial trains.
