The BASELABS team has a long track record in research projects


BASELABS as a member of different consortiums as well as individual BASELABS team members have a long track record of participating in cooperative research projects. The topics under research cover a broad range of spectrums. The experiences and development results gained in these research projects which push the limits of technology continuously forward influence the development of our software tools and project work. As a user of BASELABS software, you benefit from this broad expertise.

A few examples of our projects

PRoPART - Precise and Robust Positioning for Automated Road Transports

Collaborative perception for self-driving trucks within the PRoPART project


Highly accurate positioning solution for automotive use, taking advantage of the excellent characteristics of Galileo signals and combining them with other positioning and sensor technologies.

BASELABS Contributions:

  • Creation of an environment model with collaborative perception, processing the sensor data from onboard sensors and V2X data from the infrastructure sensors. The environment model was created by implementing both a dynamic object fusion and an occupancy grid.
  • Developing of a Situation Assessment Module, which decides whether a lane-change maneuver is possible and safe. The decision making combined the results made by two independent paths: a collision detector and a check of occupancy in the neighboring area of the truck.

Here you find an interview with our CTO Dr. Eric Richter and electriveNet about the project SADA. 

The interview took place at the “Hannover Messe” and is in German language. For non-German speakers we have a news article in English language.

InDrive – Automotive EGNSS Receiver for High Integrity Applications on the Drive


  • Development and demonstration of innovative solutions for semi-automatic driving that heavily rely on accurate and high-integrity satellite navigation
  • Demonstrate the future use of mass-market GNSS, targeting automotive applications with high demands for integrity by creating a framework that specifies the requirements for data acquisition, signal tracking and data fusion
  • Download InDrive Flyer

BASELABS contributions:

  • The data fusion in the project is developed by using BASELABS Create, the data fusion software framework for complex data fusion algorithms.  Besides the environmental perception with sensor data of an in-vehicle camera, a holistic environmental model was implemented that incorporates information of Vehicle-to-everything communication (V2X) and of a high-precision map-based satellite positioning system.
  • BASELABS contributes its broad experiences in the development of software applications for driving assistance systems.
