In this paper we present a robust, efficient and affordable approach to self-localization which requires neither GPS nor knowledge about the appearance of the world. Towards this goal, we utilize freely available cartographic maps and derive a probabilistic model that exploits semantic cues in the form of sun direction, presence of an intersection, road type, speed limit and ego-car trajectory to produce very reliable localization results. Our experimental evaluation shows that our approach can… CONTINUE READING

    • PrecipitationPrediction

      Existing precipitation prediction models have high error rates. The goal of this research is to reduce the error rates of the existing prediction models. An ensemble approach has been proposed to develop a New Aggregated Model to predict precipitation based on the dataset of some existing prediction models. This is a part of my master's thesis project.
