Loi Do & Vít Obrusník: First presentation of a rich data set obtained by inertial sensors and GPS onboard a tram
Wed, 10/17/2018

Starting at 10:00 am in K14 room, our graduate students Loi Do and Vít Obrusník, who are working on a research project in the domain of intelligent transportation, are going to present a rich data set obtained by recording measurements from inercial sensors and GPS onboard a tram while commanding a tram driver to exercise varions acceleration and breaking patterns. The conditions for obtaining these data were truly exceptional - several hours of driving in a tram depo with an experienced driver.
