Objectives: 

The main objective of the GHOST project is to design, develop and validate at an operational environment a GALILEO-based intelligent system for vehicles in order to take advantage of the public transportation fleet routes, towards enabling development of new cross-functional applications for infrastructures maintenance, street parking and garbage management in smarter cities environment.

The GHOST intelligent system will be designed and developed based on a camera and a GALILEO receiver, integrated in mobile vehicles used for public transport. Such a system will enable to automatically take pictures of predefined Points Of Interest (POI) along the public transport networks, based on the accurate position of the mobile vehicle. Such GALILEO geo-tagged pictures will be a key enabler for the creation of several new services.
