Integrated Smart Spatial Exploration System

Project Summary

The INSPEX projects main objective is to integrate automotive-equivalent spatial exploration and obstacle detection functionalities into a portable/ wearable multi-sensor, miniaturised, low power device.


Main Objectives of Project

The INSPEX system will be used for 3D real-time detection, location and warning of obstacles under all environmental conditions in indoor and outdoor environments with static and mobile obstacles. Potential applications range from safer human navigation in reduced visibility conditions, small robot/drone obstacle avoidance systems to navigation for the visually/mobility impaired, this latter being the primary use-case considered in the project.

Nimbus Role

Nimbus Centre contributions are in the management and work of the systems integration work package, in context awareness and in reliability-related aspects.

Funding Body

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 730953.

Project Start Date: 01 January 2017
