In the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) field, the number of applications that demand a high integrity positioning system is growing. In order to improve the integrity of localization systems, GPS is usually hybridized with additional proprioceptive sensors. In this paper, a new hybridization algorithm based on GPS plus odometry and a gyro is proposed as an improvement of the most common extended Kalman filter (EKF) approach. In concrete, these investigations focus on the performance of
