The European GNSS Agency (GSA) and the JUPITER project are seeking SMEs and local authorities to promote their innovative ITS mobility applications at the ITS World Congress.
With the theme "Towards Intelligent Mobility - Better Use of Space,” the ITS World Congress 2015 in Bordeaux, France is focusing in how progress in satellite-based technology is paving the way towards better transport services and new applications for safe transport and smart mobility.
To that end, the JUPITER project (Joint EUropean Project for International ITS/EGNSS awareness Raising) is seeking applications from 25 small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and 15 local authorities that want to promote their innovative ITS mobility applications at the Congress.
Several examples might be:
- Hybridisation of GNSS receivers with other sensors (eg video, lidar).
- Reliable positioning for critical ITS services (tolling...)
- Multimodal transport planning solutions for travellers
- Points of interest notification or parking availability
- Solutions for regulated services (eg eCall, digital tachograph, dangerous goods)
Applicants should reflect on how EGNSS can bring added value to innovative ITS solutions.
The 25 SMEs will be awarded a EUR 4000 voucher to cover the cost of participating in the ITS World Congress 2015. Half of the amount will be appropriated prior to the Congress, with the remainder given out after the event.
JUPITER is a Horizon 2020 project funded through the European Union and managed by the GSA. The project’s goal is promote the European GNSS and encourage and foster technological innovation.
The deadline to apply has been extended to May 15.
