First development and integration cycle of lifelong mapping
This deliverable describes the lifelong mapping framework after the first development & integration cycle. All components, notably the metric and semantic map, the metric online localization, the semantic data aggregation and the map summarization are functional and integrated on the vehicles, fulfill their basic purposes and interact with each other in a limited fashion. All components deliver first evaluation results.
Specification of the Map Frontend and Storage Concept
This deliverable corresponds to task 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3. It describes the hardware and software requirements and specifications for the mapping and localization frontend and storage concepts in the cloud-based backend.
Final specification and design of on-board sensing
This deliverable states the updates on two major aspects since Deliverable 4.1: The first aspect consists in the detailed specification of the perception goals and of the sensor model of the environment. The second aspect consists in the selection and the definition of the robust and redundant perception solution for each individual perception task based on the available or new sensors.
Initial version of higher-level perception functions
The deliverable provides an initial design and implementation of the higher level perception functions referring to road surface and obstacle perception, parking spot detection, road users classification, tracking and signaling perception.
Initial version of low-level perception functions
The deliverable provides an initial design and implementation of the spatio-temporal and appearance based low level representation (STAR) which represents the basis of building a virtual super-sensor that may perceive the environment like it has the capabilities of all available sensors mounted on the vehicles.
Initial specification and design of on-board sensing
This deliverable states the sensing possibilities, suitable to enable vehicle’s highly automated driving capabilities, as well as to collect useful information for map related operations including map enrichment, alignment, etc.
This deliverable documents the Gitlab CE and Leanlabs Kanban infrastructure that has been selected and implemented as source code development repository, issue/task tracking and wiki functionality.
