Future apt LIVING Lab for Autonomous Public Transport. LivingLAPT will deliver sustainable driver-less shuttle/logistics services among various European cities by phasing out the need for safety drivers in shuttles and moving towards remote operators who overlook a number of services simultaneously. IPI will evaluate the safety near autonomous public transport. This applied research builds on our sensor fusion technology whose ongoing development is co-financed by the Flanders AI research program. EIT Urban Mobility, 1/2022 - 12/2022

Researchers in ACHIEVE are designing highly integrated hardware-software components for the implementation of ultra-efficient embedded vision systems as the basis for innovative distributed vision applications
For IPI, the first goal of this project is to design algorithms for distributed multiple targets tracking through a decentralized approach. The second goal is to improve object detection and tracking using a multi-sensor approach. Thermal cameras have promising potential in surveillance applications, especially when combined with optical cameras. The third goal of the project is to provide solutions for behaviour analysis and action recognition. The research will use high-level analysis to automatically determine which cameras observe the same or similar action, such as pedestrians waiting to cross the street. Deep learning is a promising approach.
