Testbed Enables Infrastructure for Autonomy, Smart Cities
A testbed in an active urban centre can show real-world effects on GNSS as an aid for developing autonomous systems for green mobility, smart-city applications or transportation, to name a few.
Sited in Denmark, the 600-square-kilometre Testbed in Aarhus for Precision Positioning and Autonomous Systems (TAPAS) covers both a densely populated city centre and suburbs, a large industrial harbor and parts of Aarhus Bay. Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark with a population of 350,000 people.
Based on RTK methodology, TAPAS is a sound ground-based testbed to support, test and validate technological developments with a need for fast, efficient, flexible and reliable precision positioning. It is designed as a geodetic innovation platform, with both physical and virtual networks providing positioning to the centimetre level.
