The program's main aim is to acquire knowledge in the field of collecting, processing, and analysis of spatial data for the needs of modern navigation systems. You will learn the principles of designing, developing, and using mobile measurement platforms and mobile mapping systems (MMS), how to design location-based systems (LBS) and navigation applications (GNSS, GNSS/INS), and how to choose appropriate techniques for acquiring spatial data (photogrammetry, remote sensing, computer vision). Furthermore, you will learn about outdoor (self-driving cars, UAV) and indoor navigation systems. Finally, you will be trained to integrate and process the data from multiple sensors for navigation applications. You will create technologies of the future.
