Get the most out of summer with Galileo

27.7.2020 15:58  
Check UseGalileo.eu to see if your sports wearable benefits from Galileo’s accuracy
Published: 
27 July 2020

As Europe cautiously emerges from lockdown, people are eager to stretch their limbs and engage in summer activities – from running and hiking to biking and sailing. With Galileo as your training partner, you can improve your performance and get the most from all of these activities. What’s more, in the unlikely event that you have an accident while engaging in your chosen activity, Galileo will ensure that help reaches you as quickly as possible.

Galileo satellites may orbit the Earth at a distance of over 23,000 kilometres, but the European global navigation system is closer than you think. Galileo is now in your phone, your wearables or your tablet and it makes positioning more accurate and reliable, supporting thousands of applications including navigation, ride-sharing, gaming and even life-saving emergency response. To see if your device is Galileo-enabled, check UseGalileo.eu, or watch this video to see which applications use Galileo.

Galileo - a reliable partner for the summer

Thanks to Galileo, this summer your smartwatch or phone can help you find the best running route. Whether you want to dust off your bike or your running shoes, with Galileo you have access to enhanced precise positioning and navigation to keep you on track, especially in large cities with narrow streets and tall buildings so make sure you have Galileo’s added accuracy in your device. 

Watch this video to see how Galileo can help you navigate through urban canyons and select the optimal jogging route or tackle one of Europe’s major cycling routes.

Watch this: Accuracy Matters on 2 Wheels

If you want to give more structure and purpose to your daily jog – you are still in time to sign up to take part in a virtual SuperHalf marathon, for which the GSA is a presenting partner. Initially conceived as a series of half marathons to be held at various locations throughout Europe, the event later changed to virtual format, allowing participants to run a half marathon in stages or in one go, by July 31, and to record and upload their performance.  

Keeping you safe

When enjoying outdoor activities and sports, Galileo not only helps you with your training, you can also count on Galileo’s accuracy for emergency situations, thanks to the E112 emergency response service.

And this: LBS - Precise positioning, Time matters

E112 is a location-enhanced version of the 112 service, where emergency responders receive the position of the person in distress, similar to the eCall system for cars, enabling them to locate the caller’s position quickly and accurately. 

The European Commission has adopted measures requiring all smartphones sold in the EU from 17 March 2022 to have GNSS capability, particularly Galileo capability, so that they can use GNSS to provide caller location information to the emergency services. Most smartphones already have this capability – you can check if yours does here.

So, whatever your activity of choice – running, biking or sailing – make sure to bring Galileo in your pocket to guide you and help keep you safe this summer.

EGNOS procedures implemented in Vilnius

23.7.2020 11:00  
Vilnius Airport is the first of 3 airports in the country to upgrade to EGNOS by the end of the year
Published: 
23 July 2020

EGNOS procedures were launched at Vilnius Airport in Lithuania on 18 June 2020 as part of the EGNOS Lithuania project. Funded under the European GNSS Agency’s (GSA) Aviation Grant Programme, EGNOS Lithuania aims to implement 5 LPV approach procedures at the three biggest airports in Lithuania: Vilnius, Kaunas and Palanga.

The launch at Vilnius Airport is the very first EGNOS implementation in Lithuania, and the procedures at Kaunas and Palanga have already been designed and are expected to be operational by the end of the year. EGNOS implementation at the airports is expected to reduce the airports’ spending on navigation infrastructure and increase safety and operational efficiency.

Growing number of airports

“I am happy to announce, that since June 2020, the EGNOS-enabled RNP precision approach procedure LPV is operational at Vilnius International Airport. We thank the European GNSS Agency for supporting the EGNOS Lithuania project and look forward to seeing LPV-equipped aircraft using the benefits of LPV application at Vilnius Airport,” said Lithuanian Deputy Minister for Transport and Communications Gytis Mažeika, adding: “Kaunas and Palanga airports will appear on the EGNOS operational map by January 2021 at the latest.”

Read this: EGNOS goes from strength to strength

The launch followed a period of close cooperation between the GSA and the Lithuanian stakeholders within the context of the EGNOS Lithuania project. “The first implementation of EGNOS procedures in Lithuania is a major success, both for the EGNOS programme and for the aviation community in the country. Vilnius has joined, and Kaunas and Palanga will soon join, the growing number of airports across Europe where EGNOS helps planes and helicopters land safely,” said GSA Acting Executive Director Pascal Claudel. “We hope that this successful launch will stimulate the operational use of EGNOS in Lithuania and generate interest in EGNOS among operators and airspace users throughout the Baltic region,” he said.

The EGNOS Lithuania project is run by ORO Navigacija, the Lithuanian Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP). “Oro Navigacija is proud to make an important step towards implementation of Commission Implementing Regulation 2018/1048 and appear on the EGNOS operational map. EGNOS-based RNP Approach SBAS (LPV) procedures are already valid in Vilnius International Airport, while two other TEN-T international airports – Kaunas (KUN) and Palanga (PLQ) shall still make the respective validations,” said Oro Navigacija Acting Director Marius Beliūnas.

“Introduction of LPV contributes to strengthening flight safety and enabling efficiency improvements, as many aircrafts flying to Lithuania have already been EGNOS equipped, or operators plan to do so in the nearest future,” he said.

A powerful tool

EGNOS is the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service, a Space-Based Augmentation System (SBAS). It is a powerful tool for airports facing increasing congestion, and flight delays and diversions due to bad weather. As of the end of June 2020, 708 EGNOS-based procedures have been implemented at 367 airports and helipads in the EU.

EGNOS augments signals from navigation satellites to deliver enhanced vertical and horizontal precision, without the need for costly ground infrastructure. EGNOS makes airports more accessible, increasing air transport capacity and safety. It even benefits people on the ground, by enabling more optimised flight plans that reduce emissions and external noise levels.

And this: JOHAN V5 leverages EGNOS for extra precision

The GSA set up its Aviation Grants Programme in 2014 to promote EGNOS operational implementation in aviation. So far, 44 projects have been awarded total investment of EUR 22 million. Thanks to the Aviation Grants Programme more than 150 aircraft will be operating with EGNOS in Europe and more than 130 EGNOS approach procedures have been designed at several European airports, increasing the safety and accessibility in the aviation sector.

The GSA is planning to launch another Call for Proposals in 2020 to foster EGNOS adoption in the European aviation, for more information see the EGNOS Grant Plan 2020.

EC launches study on EGNOS integrity concept for road applications

22.7.2020 9:00  
Under what conditions would it be beneficial to implement an EGNOS service for payment and liability-critical road applications in 2025-2035?
Published: 
22 July 2020

The European Commission, with the support of the GSA, has launched a new project using EGNOS, the European satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS), with the aim of developing a tailored integrity concept for payment and liability critical applications in the road sector such as road tolling or pay-as-you-drive insurance in the 2025-2035 timeframe.

The study, requested by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Defence, Industry and Space (DG-DEFIS), will be delivered under the technical supervision of the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and will be validated by users from the road sectors. The study will allow the identification of user and service requirements, the development of an appropriate integrity concept and the definition of a service provision scheme. As part of the user level integrity concept the consortium will develop algorithms to cope with the local environment (e.g. multipath) of the road sector. 

Integrity assurance

When defining the service, the project will assess the extent to which evolutions of the current EGNOS services, user equipment or the service provision scheme are needed to provide the required integrity assurance. Integrity in this context refers to the level of confidence or reliability of the user solution including positioning, navigation or timing. 

Watch this: EGNOS for the Road

The On-Board Unit (OBU) will have to include all the features necessary to trust the position in situations where enforcement, payments and related claims are involved. Since the EGNSS sensor may just be one component in the OBU, the project will identify what other technologies or components may be needed in addition to the current EGNSS signals, and what would be the minimum contribution of each element, and under which conditions, to the overall integrity assurance. 

The study is being fully financed by the European Commission under the H2020 framework programme for research and innovation, within the budget allocated to the evolution of the EGNOS mission. The GSA is in charge of technical supervision of the project on behalf of the European Commission.

Tailored premiums

Pay-as-you-drive (PAYD) and pay-how-you-drive (PHYD) insurance are emerging applications in the road sector that rely on where, when, how and how much the road user drives. These applications make it possible to tailor the premiums paid by the policyholder. 

In the future, other road applications such as reconstruction of accidents, mobility as a service, traffic infraction monitoring and fine management, traffic congestion monitoring, automatic charging in car parks, etc. may also rely on the vehicle’s position and navigation data.

Read this: Road in action

Liability and payment-critical applications are highly sensitive to undetected large navigation errors since significant legal or economic consequences for the service or application provider may occur. In fact, a mismatch of the vehicle’s current speed together with erroneous position data may impact the user charging associated with the driving paths, skills and habits of the road user. Afterwards, it becomes very difficult for end users to claim that they are being overcharged or for service providers to avoid undercharging their customers.

About EGNOS

EGNOS is the European SBAS and augments the GPS L1 C/A civilian signal by providing corrections and integrity information for positioning and navigation applications over Europe. EGNOS Version 3, set to enter in service in the near future, will augment both GPS and Galileo constellations in the L1 and L5 bands and will extend the service area to the entire landmass of EU Member States.

The ideal design will be simple, yet able to tell a story that encapsulates the activities of the agency, but most importantly ensures brand recognition for EUSPA. 

Europe boasts talented visual artists. We want to rely on their creativity. With this contest we want to give the opportunity to European designers to be part of our future, helping them to enrich their portfolios with a logo that will always be a point of reference for their career and support their European recognition. We’re looking for artists who will craft a powerful visual identity that will help this agency stand out in a digitally disrupted era”, says Pascal Claudel, Acting Executive Director of the GSA. 

The logos will be evaluated by a jury that will assess the clarity of logo, its originality, and its graphic representation. Five design projects will be selected. The five winners will be invited to negotiate a service agreement with the GSA in order for the agency to procure the logo. The winner will take home up to 15,000 euros. Additionally, they will benefit from promotion and media coverage.

Deadline for submission is 14 August 2020, 23:59 (Prague local time).

All logos must be submitted to the following e-mail address: logodesign@gsa.europa.eu.

So, if you think that you can craft a logo sprinkled with creativity and a touch of boldness and convey an effective message through meaningful visuals in this digital universe full of noise, then let your creativity flow and be our logo designer! More information about the terms and conditions of the contest as well as a briefing can be found here.

GSA initiative targets post-COVID urban sustainability: we want to hear from cities

13.7.2020 15:07  
A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.
Published: 
13 July 2020

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

Read this: European GNSS supports smarter mobility

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city. 

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city. 

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

GSA initiative targets post-COVID urban sustainability: we want to hear from cities

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.
Published: 
13 July 2020

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city.

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city. 

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

GSA initiative targets post-COVID urban sustainability: we want to hear from cities

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.
Published: 
13 July 2020

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city.

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city. 

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

GSA initiative targets post-COVID urban sustainability: we want to hear from cities

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.
Published: 
13 July 2020

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city.

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city. 

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

GSA initiative targets post-COVID urban sustainability: we want to hear from cities

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.
Published: 
13 July 2020

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city.

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city. 

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

GSA initiative targets post-COVID urban sustainability: we want to hear from cities

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.
Published: 
13 July 2020

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city.

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city. 

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.

GSA initiative targets post-COVID urban sustainability: we want to hear from cities

A survey has been launched to assess the needs of urban mobility stakeholders.
Published: 
13 July 2020

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city.

The GSA aims to help cities emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by leveraging EGNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) and Copernicus synergies to make urban mobility more sustainable, as well as boost innovation and economic growth. To do this, the GSA is creating a network of cities that have decided to build better, more sustainable and efficient transport systems to support the recovery phase. With this in mind, a survey has been launched to understand the needs and develop tailored awareness raising and support actions on space for cities. The Horizon 2020 Ariadna project will take it further with dedicated support to facilitate the use of space for sustainable cities and its integration into new urban mobility schemes.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities1. While Europe recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown measures are lifted, the demand for mobility is cautiously increasing. In this context, some cities have decided not to ‘return to normal’, but to take the opportunity to build a better, more sustainable and efficient transport system to support the recovery phase2.

Key role for space

Urban mobility is undergoing a profound transformation, with new mobility services and innovations allowing people to easily mix and match different modes of transportation. Space services are playing a key role in the modernisation of cities and urban transport, opening new possibilities to exploit the synergies of Galileo and Copernicus to go green. However, urban areas are obstacle-rich environments generating a “multipath effect” that results in reduced positioning accuracy.

But, by using Galileo capabilities in multi-frequency solutions the accuracy and time to fix a position is significantly improved. This is translated into a better location for vehicles, which is key to optimising network planning. Copernicus services can support emissions monitoring by validating the measurements from existing sensors and extrapolating data to areas not covered otherwise. They also provide advanced imagery to support urban planning and monitoring of activities in a city. 

Space4Cities: Cities, speak up!

The H2020 Ariadna project will support all urban mobility stakeholders in ensuring that public transport delivers urban mobility in its broadest sense, which includes shared mobility and disruptive schemes such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) using EGNSS and Copernicus. Together with Ariadna, the GSA is launching an initiative to bring cities that want to go greener and are looking for answers from space data together in the Space4Cities network.

And this: Satellites and the City

To facilitate this process, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and Ariadna have launched a survey to identify which cities would like to engage with the initiative, assess their needs and how EGNSS and Copernicus services and data can best help them to achieve their sustainable mobility goals. The survey will only take five minutes to complete – you can find it here.

What’s next: Ariadna support to sustainable cities

Ariadna aims to engage with a comprehensive range of stakeholders, covering cities and the entire urban mobility value chain. These include public transport authorities, cities, research centres, technology providers, SMEs and start-ups and end users. Following the results of the survey and the interest from the partner cities, the project will provide dedicated support through tailored workshops to increase awareness on the use of Galileo and Copernicus to improve urban transport. Specifically, awareness will be raised on Galileo’s enhanced features for accurate and authenticated positioning, as well as synergies with Copernicus, to monitor the relevant indicators that can support the development of new sustainable urban mobility plans.
