Abstract

Light Detection and Ranging, as an active Remote Sensing Technology, enables gathering accurate, three-dimensional point cloud of scanned objects. Laser scanning might be provided on the terrestrial level for specific, defined constructions, as well as on the airborne level for aerial [...]

Abstract

This article focuses on testing and investigating further development needs for LiDARs in self-driving cars in adverse weather. The article compares two different LiDARs (Ibeo Lux and Velodyne PUCK), which both use the 905 nm wavelengths, which are used in more than 95% of currently [...]

Abstract

This article aims to outline the key results of testing and encountered challenges of various LiDARs, radar and stereo camera in arctic weather conditions. The test session was conducted in two different urban areas in Finland in the middle of January 2019. The arctic conditions turned [...]

Abstract

In the future, vehicles will gather more and more spatial information about their environment, using on-board sensors such as cameras and laser scanners. Using this data, e.g. for localization, requires highly accurate maps with a higher level of detail than provided by today's maps. [...]

Abstract

This paper presents and discusses the recent developments related to seismic performance and assessment of buried pipelines. The experience from the performance of pipelines during last earthquakes provided invaluable information and lead to new developments in the analysis and technologies. [...]

Abstract

ITT Industries Space Systems Division (Space Systems) has developed an airborne natural gas leak detection system designed to detect, image, quantify, and precisely locate leaks from natural gas transmission pipelines. This system is called the Airborne Natural Gas Emission Lidar [...]

Abstract

Cirrus clouds have a large influence on the Earth's climate and anthropogenic activities such as aviation can alter their properties. Besides the formation of contrails, indirect effects on naturally occurring cirrus like increased heterogeneous freezing due to exhaust soot particles [...]

Abstract

Vision based active safety systems have become more frequently occurring in modern vehicles to estimate depth of the objects ahead and for autonomous driving (AD) and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). In this thesis a lightweight deep convolutional neural network performing [...]

Abstract

This paper presents the first results of the publicly funded ECSEL project DENSE (Adverse weather environmental sensing system). DENSE seeks to eliminate one of the most pressing problems of automated driving: the inability of current systems to sense their surroundings under all [...]
