The autonomous car: safety hinging on a 25cm margin

Eurecom, HIGHTS, Autonomous car, H2020

Does an autonomous or semi-autonomous car really know where it is located on a map? How accurately can it position itself on the road? For the scientists who are part of the European H2020 “HIGHTS” project, intelligent transportation systems must know their position down to one quarter of a meter. …

Ocean remote sensing: solving the puzzle of missing data

Ocean Remote sensing, data, IMT Atlantique

The satellite measurements that are taken every day rely greatly on atmospheric conditions, the main cause of missing data. In a scientific publication, Ronan Fablet, a researcher at Télécom Bretagne, proposes a new method for reconstructing the temperature of the ocean surface to complete incomplete observations. This reconstructed data provides …

Sea Tech Week: Key issues of a connected ocean

Sea Tech Week, René Garello, Océan connecté

The sea is becoming increasingly connected, with the development of new real-time transmission sensors. The aggregated data is being used to improve our understanding of the role oceans play in climate issues, but several challenges must be considered: the development of autonomous sensors and the pooling of research on a …

An ocean of environmental data to be processed

René Garello, Vigisat, Océan, Télécom Bretagne, Ocean

If nowadays we can detect icebergs along the route of the Vendée Globe, track and identify ships causing pollution from space, and define ecological corridors and reserves for the protection of animal species, it is largely thanks to stations which receive and process satellite images in real time, and the …
