UGent-imec/IPI research group builds on sensor fusion with the aim to bring safe transport into factories

On January 2022, the EU KIC LivingLapt Project, funded by the EIT Urban Mobility framework has started. 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. Trials are planned in several European cities, including the city of Hasselt.

In this project, UGent-imec IPI research group Image processing and Interpretation will evaluate the safety near autonomous public transport. This applied research builds on IPI’s sensor fusion technology, whose ongoing development is co-financed by the Flanders AI research program, with the aim to bring safe transport into factories.
