The French National Institute for Transport and Safety Research is a public
scientific and technological body under the dual administrative supervision
of the Ministry in charge of Research and the Ministry in charge of Transports.
The Laboratory of Electronics, Waves and Signals in Transport (LEOST) is one of the 21 Research Units of IFSTTAR with a staff (researcher, Engineer, PhD students, post-doc) of around 40 persons dealing with de development of New Information and Communication systems (Communication, Localisation, Surveillance) with a global approach of Intelligent Mobility in order to increase quality, safety and security and optimisation of transport systems in the road (cars, bus, tramway) and guided domains (trains, metros) and reduce the impact on environment and develop automation.
The main research axis proposed within the project will focus on the analysis and prediction of signal propagation impact on GNSS positioning performances. It is split in several sub-axes:
