  Résumé en anglais
Vehicle geo-localization remains a challenging problems in urban areas. For this purpose, GPS receiver is usually the main sensor. But, the use of GPS alone is not sufficient in many urban environments due to wave multi-path. In order to provide accurate and robust localization, GPS has to be helped with other sensors like dead-reckoned sensors, map data, cameras or LIDAR.
In this thesis, a new observation of the absolute pose of the vehicle is proposed to back up GPS measurements. The proposed approach exploits virtual 3D city model managed by a 3D Geographical Information System (3D GIS) and a video camera. Vehicle geo-localization uses several sources of information: a GPS receiver, proprioceptive sensors (odometers and gyrometer), a video camera and a virtual 3D city model. The proprioceptive sensors allow to continuously estimating the dead-reckoning position and orientation of the vehicle. This deadreckoning estimation of the pose is corrected by GPS measurements. Moreover, a 3D geographical observation is constructed to compensate the drift of the dead-reckoning localization when GPS measurements are unavailable. The 3D geographical observation is based on the matching between the virtual 3D city model and the images acquired by the camera. For that, two images have to be matched: the real image and the virtual image. The real image is acquired by the on board camera and provides the real view of the scene viewed by the vehicle. The virtual image is provided by the 3D GIS. The developed method is composed of three parts. The first part consists in detecting and matching the feature points of the real image
and of the virtual image. Three methods: SURF, SIFT and Harris corner detector are compared.
The second part concerns the position computation using POSIT algorithm and the previously matched features set. The third part concerns the data fusion using IMM-UKF. The proposed approach has been tested on a real sequence and the obtained results proved the feasibility and robustness of the proposed approach.
