High precision positioning
for cooperative ITS applications
Project Number and Programme:
636537 - H2020
1st May 2015
HIGHTS, HORIZON 2020 EUROPEAN UNION PROJECT
HIGHTS is a Europe-base research project supported by European Union under the funding scheme "Horizon 2020". Our theme is "Smart, Green and Integrated Transport" and our focus area is Cooperative ITS. The goal of the HIGHTS project is to achieve high precision positioning system with the accuracy of 25cm.
Cooperative intelligent transport system (C-ITS) applications rely on knowledge of the geographical positions of vehicles. Unfortunately, satellite-based positioning systems (e.g., GPS and Galileo) are unable to provide sufficiently accurate position information for many important applications and in certain challenging but common environments (e.g., urban canyons and tunnels).
In addition, Safety is a huge challenge for today’s road scenario and it will be even more challenging in the future, with the progressive introduction of Highly Automated Driving (HAD) applications such as Cooperative-ACC or Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs).
This project addresses these problems by combining traditional satellite systems with an innovative use of on-board sensing and infrastructure-based wireless communication technologies (e.g., Wi-Fi, ITS-G5, UWB tracking, Zigbee, Bluetooth, LTE...) to produce advanced, highly-accurate positioning technologies for C-ITS.
HIGHTS platform will be a key enabler to C-ACC and Platooning. In particular C-ACC and Platooning will provide smoother driving conditions, optimization of traffic flows and high precision lane detection for more efficient guidance in urban and highway environments.
Our platform will increase the safety level of vulnerable road users (motorcycles, scooters, pedestrians) through bi- directional danger detection and by detecting slight deviations from driving courses, thus detecting danger before it occurs.
The results will be integrated into the facilities layer of ETSI C-ITS architecture and will thereby become available for all C-ITS applications, including those targeting the challenging use cases Traffic Safety of Vulnerable Users and Autonomous Driving/platooning. The project will therefore go beyond ego- and infra-structure-based positioning by incorporating them as building blocks to develop an enhanced European-wide positioning service platform based on enhanced Local Dynamic Maps and built on open European standards.
HIGHTS outputs will be both scientific and technical aiming at research publications in top-tier journals and conferences in the subject areas related to the project, and respectively, also at practical real-system implementations proof of concepts applications and demo vehicles.

IEEE 13th Workshop on Positioning, Navigation and Communications
WPNC’16, 19-20 October 2016 Bremen, Germany
HIGHTS members supported the organization of the coming Workshop, WPNC'16. It was held on 19-20 October 2016 at Jacobs University Bremen in Germany.
Wireless location has plays a center role in research and businesses in the wider Wireless Communications area, as demonstrated by its ever increasing range of applications including logistics, traffic engineering, industrial production, retail, office and home automation, ambient assisted living, convenience, luxury, security and many more.
In particular, major technological development efforts such as the Internet of Things, Cyber Physical Systems and more recently Connected Vehicles, are driving various advances in heterogeneous sensor data processing, fusion, energy efficient networking and cooperation, context awareness, highly automated information gathering and processing, privacy and security, etc., all of which benefit or require location.
WPNC, the annual European event on Positioning and Navigation and energy efficient Communication, continues to provide an international platform for exchanging latest research results and inputs from the industry.
Be part of the wireless ranging, positioning and energy efficient wireless networking revolution and submit your original contribution to WPNC 2016.

ICC 2016 WORKSHOP 23-27 MAY 2016 KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA
HIGHTS is supporting the organization of 2nd International Workshop on Advanced PHY and MAC Techniques for Super Dense Wireless Networks (CROWD-Net). The workshop shall be held in conjunction with the Symposium of IEEE ICC 2016.
The workshop and the symposium are scheduled on 23-27 May 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This workshop aims to gather researchers, regulators, and users to present and debate advanced PHY and MAC techniques for coordinated or uncoordinated dense wireless networks, with the perspective of current cellular, M2M, and V2V standardisation activities in 3GPP, ETSI, IEEE and IETF.
