MoDiSeM Partner DLR Receives Innovation Award

The Institute for Optical Sensor Systems at the German Aerospace Center e. V. (DLR) receives for the development of the

Integrated Positioning Systems (IPS)

in the context of a festive event in the Berlin Museum of Communication, the Innovation Award Berlin Brandenburg.

The IPS is characterized by the following features:

  • Combination of different measurement techniques (sensor data fusion)
  • Use in previously unknown environments (both indoor and outdoor)
  • No external positioning infrastructure (e. g. WIFI) required

In the frame of MoDiSeM, the IPS recently played an important role in the project initiative "Navigation based on semantic 3D-mapping with learning components for the flexible interaction of autonomous mobile robotic systems with the environment".
