Session 3. GNSS IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE AND EQUATORIAL REGIONS

10.30 - 12.00 hrs

All the current and developing Global Satellite Navigation Systems, namely the US GPS, the European Galileo, the Russian GLONASS and the Chinese Beidou, have been set up and are operated by countries in the Northern Hemisphere. The same applies to the Augmentation Systems like the US WAAS and the European EGNOS. Considering safety-critical applications, such as the landing of Civil Aviation aircraft, it is important to involve countries in the Southern Hemisphere (eg South America, South Africa and Australia) and quasi-Equatorial Regions (such as Egypt and India) in the discussions on current and future applications of Satellite Navigation. This is the objective of this Session.

Session 6. GALILEO PRS – THE EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK AND NATIONAL IMPLEMENTATIONS

16.00 - 17.30 hrs

The Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS) will provide a robust and encrypted positioning- and timing-capability restricted to governmental authorized users. According to Decision 1104/2011/EU each EU Member State will decide which users will be authorized. The specific framework is being established via its Competent PRS Authority (CPA). First the EC and the GSA will give an introduction
on PRS and its activities to support the PRS user segment developments within the Member States both for the “traditional PRS” approach, as well as for “innovative PRS” concepts. Afterwards different CPAs will present their national organizational set-up, their current activities and future plans.

Session 7. GNSS IN TELEMATICS SYSTEMS FOR THE AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE

17.30 - 19.00 hrs
The need for accurate and reliable positioning information is clearly emerging for Autonomous Vehicles, and some important steps have been made to find the complementarity within multiple sources of data (e.g. RADAR, LiDAR, computer vision, GNSS, etc.). The combination of different technologies and sensors, in which GNSS has a key role, allows the in-vehicle system to identify the optimal path of action. In this session, experts from R&D institutions, automotive suppliers, car manufacturers and public bodies will focus on the challenges and opportunities ahead.
