Background: 

GALILEO 4 Mobility aims at supporting the introduction of GALILEO technology within the Mobility as a Service context, by analysing the needs in terms of geolocation of the different stakeholders involved and demonstrating the benefits of GALILEO through pilot demonstrators of shared mobility services. Urban mobility is becoming an issue of great importance in today’s society due to the increasing population movements towards big cities and the exponential growth of cities in developing countries. Today, urban mobility schemes are evolving faster than ever mainly due to social, economic and technological changes. The democratization of smart mobile devices is allowing new business models based on sharing goods and services: the sharing economy. Its fast growth during recent years reflects a shift from owning goods toward accessing them when you need them. In that context, shared mobility services have grown exponentially during last years, with the potential to become an integrated system of multi-modal mobility services: the so-called “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS). Geolocation of users and vehicles by means of satellite navigation technologies has been widely used and it´s a key enabler for most of the services. While traditional GPS-based solutions have proven not to be a reliable solution, GALILEO will further improve signal availability, thus enhancing continuity of service for shared mobility services in urban or challenging environments.
