Localization and Exteroceptive Sensors

The precise positioning of traffic objects is of crucial importance for integrated safety functions. On the one hand, reference sensors are required for localization in the development and test phase in order to validate sensor data. On the other hand, precise positioning of vehicles in road traffic is required, especially for autonomous driving.
