Session 2. AUGMENTED REALITY MEETS HIGH-ACCURACY POSITIONING
Augmented Reality (AR) is more and more emerging in different parts of daily life in modern society. A variety of applications provides a new view, using digital content to complement physical objects of the real world. While AR has been very expensive in the past, it became more and more affordable over the last years, leading to a high usage and even being available on smartphones for any user. Many developers of augmented reality software also take advantage of GNSS solutions that offer high-accuracy location data. This session brings together experts for AR and GNSS from science and industry to discuss different approaches and challenges of combining these two state-of-the-art technologies.

Session 5. FUTURE USE OF THE GALILEO PUBLIC REGULATED SERVICE
The deployment of the Galileo ground- and space-segment, including the PRS relevant components, will reach FOC in the next years. PRS-receiver developments also take place since some years on European level and first receivers are already available. Therefore, the first governmental authorised PRS-users will start their activities to test, implement and use the PRS in the coming years. This session will provide an overview the preparatory activities of different potential European PRS user communities to be ready for the future use of the Galileo Public Regulated Service.

Session 6. SATELLITE AND TERRESTRIAL NAVIGATION EUROPEAN EVOLUTION TRENDS AND SMART CITIES
Satellite and terrestrial means will share the future navigation scenery. To achieve a fruitful coexistence, great efforts on research and development are currently ongoing. This panel will share forecasts on smart cities user needs and discuss the place that the current and modernized Galileo and EGNOS systems will occupy in the future as well as how they will be able to effectively respond to those needs. Complementarily, the panellists will address the status of terrestrial and satellite technologies, paying particular attention to current 5G and GNSS standardization efforts. The ultimate objective of this enterprise will be to come with a hybrid position evolutions roadmap, in response to which invited speakers will introduce preliminary automated driving implementation solutions and possible future evolutions.
