Abstract

We present the current state of development of the sensor-equipped car MODISSA, with which Fraunhofer IOSB realizes a configurable experimental platform for hardware evaluation and software development in the context of mobile mapping and vehicle-related safety and protection. MODISSA is based on a van that has successively been equipped with a variety of optical sensors over the past few years, and contains hardware for complete raw data acquisition, georeferencing, real-time data analysis, and immediate visualization on in-car displays. We demonstrate the capabilities of MODISSA by giving a deeper insight into experiments with its specific configuration in the scope of three different applications. Other research groups can benefit from these experiences when setting up their own mobile sensor system, especially regarding the selection of hardware and software, the knowledge of possible sources of error, and the handling of the acquired sensor data.
