Displaying in-vehicle AR content in a globally referenced coordinate system requires exact knowledge of the car’s pose in the world at a high framerate. LPVR-POS achieves this using a combination of two specialized sensor fusion algorithms.
LPVR-POS is based on FusionHub* and integrates a vehicle’s odometer, GPS, and IMU data with global location information and more. A range of typical applications, such as automotive and robot localization.
*FusionHub is a software application that combines several sensor data inputs to create a higher-level information output.
LPVR-POS combines odometry, GPS, and IMU data from a vehicle to calculate high-accuracy and low-latency global localization information. While GPS or RTK-GPS measurements alone provide similar positioning accuracy, the output frequency of these systems is relatively low, making them unsuitable for applications where localization information at higher framerates is required, such as positioning objects in an augmented reality environment.
By additionally using odometry (wheel speeds, steering angle, etc.) information, the localization data from the GPS measurements is interpolated to achieve framerates limited only by IMU and odometry sampling speeds.
