Synopsis: Geolocation plays a key role in urban mobility. The use of positioning technologies for the geolocation of vehicles and final users’ smartphones represents a key enabler for more efficient planning and operating mobility services. Without this technology, many mobility service providers simply could not operate efficiently, if at all; and the rest that could operate would do so with a significantly lower quality of experience.

Users expect and demand more, higher-quality mobility services in an improved and seamless mobility experience. Therefore, the accuracy of the geolocation signal and other features that we describe throughout this paper are key enablers to the adequate functioning of any service.

In this context, the incorporation of Galileo positively impacts many existing applications in urban mobility and opens the way for new services and better adoption in cities.
