Valérie Renaudin: “Integrating human specificities in the development of pedestrian navigation algorithms”

Feb 28

On February 21, we enjoyed the visit of Dr. Valérie Renaudin, from the French Research Institute on Transport (IFSTTAR), in Nantes, France. She leads the Geopositioning Laboratory (GEOLOC) and chairs the next IPIN 2018 conference.

Dr. Renaudin gave a lecture titled “Integrating human specificities in the development of pedestrian navigation algorithms”. In the talk, Dr. Renaudin introduced us to current problems and solutions of position estimation using inertial sensors measurements. She also described the advances she and her laboratory members have achieved so far in this regard, stressing the high complexity involved in creating a model that covers human gait features for everybody. In addition, Dr. Renaudin presented their experiences in using the combination of digital urban data and computer vision to improve inertial sensors-based position estimations. The combination is particularly applicable for augmented reality applications, where the user interaction provides extra information that is valuable for positioning. This invited lecture was part of the GEOTEC’s activities and Master students were kindly invited to attend.
