About the Pascal Institute

The Pascal Institute has been developing external localization systems for many years. These works, begun in the years 1990, were dedicated to the first location on the motorway and then developed in the early 2000 with localization approaches from the ground marking where it became possible to locate at high speed A highway vehicle. This work was then extended to optimize longitudinal precision, particularly with GPS couplings and particulate filters. With this experience, the Pascal Institute then oriented itself towards the navigation of urban space. Since January 2012, the Joint Research Unit of the Pascal Institute (UMR 6602) has been placed under the tutelage of the Université Clermont Auvergne, the CNRS and the French Institute of Advanced Mechanics. The institute is broken down into four research axes. The project is part of the ISPR axis (Image, Perception Systems and robotics). The ISPR axis has been involved in many projects under this theme: PREDIT 3 (MOBIVIP), ANR (ARCOS, LoVE, CityVIP, R-DISCOVER, PROTEUS, SafePlatoon, BaudetROB), fled (CRISTAL, VIPAFleet). It has an experimental fleet of 5 instrumented vehicles (VIPALAB) and the PAVIN test platform (Intelligent vehicle Auvergne platform) for the deployment and testing of a fleet of vehicles.
