Abstract: Paper presented at the 27th ITS World Congress, Hamburg (Germany), 2021] Accuracy, integrity, and continuity of the geolocation signal in complex urban environments are key features to enable new mobility services in the smart city context. Galileo is the European Global Navigation Satellite System, and along with the Satellite-Based Augmentation System EGNOS, constitutes Europe’s satellite navigation programme. Galileo provides improved positioning and timing information with significant positive implications for many services and users. The system has been operational since December 2016 and can be used in combination with GPS satellites (or any other constellation) via multi-constellation receivers, already a widespread, affordable market solution.
This paper reports on the applications of Galileo in the urban mobility sector, based on tested use cases in the bus, tram and shared mobility domains.
