Indoor micro-navigation utilizing local infrastructure-based positioning
In this paper we present an indoor micronavigation system for enclosed parking garages. It builds on car-to-infrastructure communication to provide layout information of the car park, the coordinates of the destination parking lot, as well as external positioning information to vehicles. In our approach we use customary network video cameras to detect and locate vehicles within the car park. Once a vehicle is detected, the system correlates the position of the vehicle to the car park layout and transmits this information to the appropriate vehicle to substitute the internal positioning system. With this information the vehicle is guided from the car park entrance to a destination parking lot.
