The European Space Solutions event features a 1-day workshop on how the road and traffic management sectors can benefit from European satellite navigation and Earth observation information.
The European Space Solutions event will take place on 1 June, 2016. Space and satellite navigation are key enablers for the delivery of the next generation of mobility. European Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), including Galileo, the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) and Copernicus, offers the precision, robustness and reliability needed for autonomous and connected vehicles, fleet management and payment-related applications.
With growing cities and increased public transport, it is clear that GNSS services will become more and more important. According to the European GNSS Agency’s (GSA) GNSS market report, GNSS receivers and services will have an estimated core revenue of EUR 36 billion by 2018.
To highlight how European industry can access this key market, on 1 June the European Commission and the European GNSS Agency (GSA), under the auspices of the Dutch Council Presidency, are organising a special session on GNSS and smart mobility as part of the 2016 European Space Solutions Conference.
The Focus Session will address a wide range of applications for road and traffic management companies, including liability-critical applications, public transportation, smart cities and the driverless car. The session will highlight both state-of-the-art solutions and innovations, where the latest research and development (R&D) will demonstrate exciting ways in which space applications can influence the next generation of transport systems.
The session will feature speakers from the European Commission, national transportation agencies, the GSA, and a range of various research institutions and related businesses, including the car manufacturer Fiat. Users from both the public and private sectors are encouraged to attend.
