Within the framework of the Galileo 4 Mobility project, two workshops were held late December, one with AMB (Àrea metropolitana de Barcelona) and one with RACC (Reial Automòbil Club de Catalunya). The workshops aimed to define metrics which help improve the provision of mobility services and assess the performance of the pilots that both organisations will be carrying out in 2019. AMB will be testing the implementation of an on-demand bus service replacing a regular bus service, and RACC will be testing the benefits of completing a multimodal trip on its MaaS platform using a Galileo-enabled smartphone. Both workshops followed [...]
On January 25, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB) and Servei Català de Trànsit (SCT) had a first meeting to discuss the details of a potential new mobility service with autonomous vehicles on the university campus. During the meeting, issues such as the itinerary, frequency, users and technical specifications of the vehicle itself, were discussed. If implemented, the trial could be one of the pilots conducted in the GALILEO FOR MOBILITY framework. All three organisations showed great interest in testing the possibilities of an autonomous vehicle operating on the open road, since it would be a [...]
From 25 to 28 February, GALILEO FOR MOBILITY will be showcased at the Galileo Booth hosted by the European GNSS Agency (GSA) (Hall 8.0, Stand 8.0H15) at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. The GSA Galileo stand will showcase several Horizon 2020 funded, Galileo-powered innovations, including the GALILEO FOR MOBILITY project. At MWC, GALILEO FOR MOBILITY will be presenting the different services it is currently testing, including an on-demand public transportation system in Barcelona, a vehicle sharing initiative in Paris, and a ride sharing programme in Thessaloniki – among others. “The project as a whole tackles all modes of transport, [...]
From 3 to 5 December, GALILEO FOR MOBILITY was presented during European Space Week, held in Marseille, France. Organised by the European GNSS Agency, the event gathered all European stakeholders to discover the latest applications in Earth observation and satellite navigation and learn about the latest status of Galileo, Copernicus and EGNOS. GALILEO FOR MOBILITY was presented at two sessions. On 3 December, the session “EGNSS User Consultation Platform” was held, exchanging feedback on user requirements collected by GSA for each market segment. CERTH/HIT attended the working session in the transport sector of roads. On 5 December, Dr. Josep Maria Salanova Grau [...]

Over the past month, GALILEO FOR MOBILITY and the Galileo technology has found its way to a couple of online publications. Cities Today, a the global platform containing news, analysis,interviews and best practices on sustainable urban development, smart cities and mobility, published the article "How space technologies are driving the future of smart cities". The article prominently features GNSS systems, and specifically Galileo, as new generation technology that offers a solution to mobility demands in cities today. GPS World, an online magazine that offers news, advice, insights, and information for businesses and individuals who work in with GPS, GIE, GNSS, and [...]
GALILEO FOR MOBILITY has recently published the project leaflet! This deliverable provides a clear overview of the project in brief, the five pilot locations, and the objectives. Have a look at the leaflet here.
The ITS World Congress in Copenhagen has come to an end, and GALILEO FOR MOBILITY was present. On 17 September, G4M held a session where participants discussed various satellite technologies from the GSA and the benefits for the deployment of multimodality, new mobility services and digital platforms. Also reviewed was the advancement made in GALILEO for mobility projects funded by the EC, plus the point of view of the transport authorities, industries and users on the matter. The speakers included: Alberto Fernandez Wyttenbach, European GNSS Agency, Czech Republic Martí Massot, RACC, Spain Steve Beck, SONY, United Kingdom Josep Maria Salanova Grau, CERTH-HIT, Greece [...]
