Remember the time when GNSS technology was only available for professional use in transport and geodesy? Well, those times are over. In recent years, the access to GNSS technology has developed exponentially from the first phone with GPS in 2007 to more than 5 billion GNSS phones available globally in 2017, and expanding to cover all interconnected devices. Today location performance is considered sufficient to enable many applications, starting from navigation of ships and landing planes to the search for closest restaurant. Tomorrow the self-driving cars, drones and locating things in IoT will require much more accuracy, ubiquity of location indoor and outdoor and security of location data.
And here is where GNSS technology steps in. In the last 10 years more than 40 navigation satellites have been launched globally providing new generation of positioning signals. New frequencies are being used and the GNSS signals are hybridized with other technologies such as inertial sensors, computer vision, laser/LiDAR sensors, etc. to offer unprecedented level of accuracy that will generate new services and business opportunities. Galileo, the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) made in Europe and working worldwide, adds some significant advantages such as the authentication of the signal to prevent spoofing, additional frequencies for better accuracy in urban environments, and high accuracy service for more demanding applications.
The European GNSS Agency in charge of Galileo Satellite Navigation services will share the latest innovations around GNSS and its contribution to build the Internet of Things.
