Joint European Project for International ITS/EGNSS awareness Raising
Background & Objectives
JUPITER aims at EGNSS awareness raising, capacity building and promotion activities for fostering business development of EGNSS based applications worldwide in response to the H2020 societal challenges at stake for mobility and transportation.
In order to ensure that EGNSS comes to prominence in Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) sector, the added value of EGNSS, compared to or in combination with GPS/Glonass/Beidou constellations will be demonstrated and promoted within the project. In this context, the training of application developers will be critical for them to take advantage of EGNSS and to implement GALILEO positioning feature efficiently in their applications. On the other side, once ITS service providers can demonstrate innovative EGNSS based ITS applications, another key challenge will be to convince public stakeholders and other actors of the transportation industry about the competitive and cost benefit advantages they could derive from implementing such innovative GALILEO or EGNOS based solutions.
JUPITER intends to offer global development perspectives to the European contributors of the EGNSS ITS ecosystem, including to those SMEs involved in those projects funded by the EC in the frame of FP7 or H2020, or to the winners of the GALILEO Masters, thereby enhancing the competitiveness of the European EGNSS technologies and application industries worldwide.
