The Galileo 4 Mobility project aims to promote the use of Galileo technology in urban mobility, so we are very happy to announce that the Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) has issued a tender for Galileo-enabled receivers to be included in the Prague tramways. The works would be part of their modernization plan to increase network efficiency and improve user experience.
The Galileo-enabled, multifrequency, multiconstellation receivers that are being procured are expected to:
- From the end-user point of view: provide more accurate vehicle positioning data (down to 1,5 meters) to passengers.
- From the operator perspective: decrease maintenance costs; improve systems, such as automatic speed limitation over the switches.
The Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) is one of the first public transit companies to use Galileo in the entire tram fleet, leading by example and inspiring other public transport agencies worldwide. And ARIADNA is here to spread the word! So do not hesitate to get in touch if willing to learn more on the benefits of deploying Galileo in your public transport fleets.
