Embodiments of the present invention provide a method, an apparatus, an electronic system and a vehicle for proactively localising a vehicle. The method comprises determining that the vehicle (400) is approaching an end of a journey, sensing one or more features of an environment (Figure 1, 112) proximal to the vehicle and, upon determining that the vehicle is approaching the end of the journey, localising the vehicle in dependence on said sensing. The apparatus comprises means for receiving one or more signals indicative of a position in a journey of the vehicle, processing means for determining, in dependence on said one or more signals, whether the vehicle is approaching an end of a journey and sensing means for sensing one or more features of an environment proximal to the vehicle. The processing means is arranged to localisation the vehicle in dependence on said sensed features, upon determining that the vehicle is approaching the end of the journey.
