Galileo For Mobility pursues the following three objectives:
- To describe the different operational models and use cases involved in MaaS (vehicle sharing, ridesharing, public transport…) and identify how location is used across each of them.
- To understand how massive volumes of geolocation data from users and vehicles can be further exploited to improve service operations and urban mobility planning.
- To define the requirements for GNSS devices to accomplish these goals, exploiting Galileo features.
- To validate these requirements through 5 operational pilots with real users covering different use cases.
- To conduct a survey at the end of the pilots to assess the level of satisfaction of users, transport operators and city planners.
- To develop a Galileo-based OBU, meeting the requirements of the applications not only in terms of positioning performance but also in other aspects such as size, cost, power consumption and interfaces.
- To integrate novel IoT communication standards that can reduce the cost and power consumption of transmitting location data, being a driver for new uses and applications of GNSS by service operators and city planners.
- To develop big data analytic methods to exploit geolocation data to improve service operations and urban mobility planning.
- To elaborate an Exploitation Plan for the results of the project, following an in-depth analysis of the market sector, identifying more precisely the existing offer, successful business cases, standardization and regulation issues and market trends.
- To perform additional 8 small-scale pilots to showcase the benefits of Galileo to a larger number of transport operators and public authorities.
- To disseminate project results at relevant business events from the sector (at least two per year) and to coordinate actions with other ITS and Urban Mobility European entities and projects.
