Session 8. THE GNSS KNOWLEDGE TRIANGLE: TYING THE KNOT BETWEEN EDUCATION, RESEARCH AND INDUSTRY

8.00 - 9.00 hrs

A critical factor of success for satellite navigation is a strong interaction between the areas of education, research and industry. With respect to the growing competition and resource optimization the sustainable success of industry is crucially linked to the effective identification and transfer of knowledge, innovative technologies and available solutions. This session will bring together representatives
from the three areas for an interactive discussion on current activities and future possibilities for
a strong coordination among universities, research centers and industry.

 

Chairman:
Dr. Fabio Dovis, Associate Professor, Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy

 

Moderator:
Claus Kruesken, Presenter, Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Broadcasting), Munich, Germany

 

This session is organized according to the so called „fishbowl method“ that involves GNSS experts from universities, research centers and industry in an interactive discussion. Everybody is welcome to join the „fishbowl“ and to be part of the GNSS Knowledge Triangle to strenghten the knowledge transfer and the future success of GNSS!

 

MORNING COFFEE

9.00 - 9.30 hrs

 

 

Session 9. EFFECTIVE GNSS PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT - IN THE LAB OR IN THE FIELD?

9.30 - 11.00 hrs

GNSS applications are vulnerable to many physical phenomena from space down to the user, making performance assessment very complex. But it must be cost-effective even more in the future. For system conception, design and development simulation is the only option for performance assessment. But real signals will be increasingly available from new operational satellites and constellations.
Does the real operational environment allow assessing the performance? What diverse test scenarios do we get from simulation utilities? Is the combination of the simulated and the real world the desired way to achieve the required performance?

Session 10. GNSS AUTHENTICATION SERVICES. ARE THEY BECOMING A REALITY?

11.00 - 12.30 hrs

A number of proposals are discussing the possibility to introduce at system level a GNSS authentication service for civilian usage. Galileo might have operational an open service authentication on E1 already in 2018, and by 2020 it shall start providing the Galileo Commercial Service with authentication capability on E6. What are the current status and plans of Galileo and other non-European
systems for a civilian authentication service? Who will be the stakeholders of the GNSS authentication business? Which are the drivers that leads government and organizations to plan for enhancing trust and authenticity in GNSS? Are there real threats or is just a need of the future? Which shall be the plans for both industry and user communities to enhance security and robustness for the next 10 years?

Session 11. PRECISE POSITIONING TECHNOLOGY IN AGRICULTURE AND FORESTRY

13.30 - 15.00 hrs
Precise GNSS positioning has an increasing impact on modern agriculture and forestry applications. GNSS in precision agriculture products and related solutions for farming operations can help to save costs, improve crop performance, reduce the use of chemicals and fertilizer. A large number of sensors, monitors and algorithms help to navigate agricultural machines more accurately through
the fields. Furthermore, embedded systems and wireless sensor-networks make it possible to collect data on crops and their needs in terms of fertilizer. At the same time, the use of precision farming is also a trade-off between costs and utility for smaller farms. This session presents and discusses different examples of how GNSS can support today’s agriculture and forestry.

Session 12. GNSS AND SCIENCES FOR LIFE

15.00 - 16.00 hrs
The precise location-based services and accurate timing provided by GNSS impact all aspects of our lives. This session takes a look at how GNSS makes a difference across a range of activities that affect our health and well-being from healthcare and medical services to sports monitoring and ecological studies. Can GNSS help predict disease outbreaks? How is GNSS improving the performance of your favourite team? Is GNSS able to improve efficiency in hospitals? Find out about the GNSS ‘feelgood’ factor in this session!
