Galileo for ARA / A New Galileo Module for the ARA Platform
Modular phones are the next future solution for users who need maximum flexibility and personalisation at minimal cost. The concept is to adapt the ARA platform to individual needs. GALILEO for ARA is a solution for demanding smartphone users looking to use one of GALILEO’s most important features – the E5 signal. The idea is to develop an E5 GALILEO receiver modules for the ARA platform. While most mass market smartphones will still be focused on E1, the availability of high end phones offering enhanced accuracy will be appealing for many users.
JOHAN: The Digital Oracle for Field Sports, Including GNSS Player Tracking in Real-Time
JOHAN aims to develop a system to track players real-time during field sports by the use of the EGNOS system and, in the future, Galileo. Existing tracking technologies are too expensive or not precise enough. By making use of the EGNOS system and Galileo, greater precision and reliability can be achieved. In the concept, every player will wear a GNSS device to track his or her movements, accelerations, and heart rate. The data will be transferred wirelessly to coaches' laptops.
3SOUND NAVIGATION: Track Navigation Solution Based on GNSS and 3D Acoustically Augmented Reality
3SOUND is a personal navigation solution that integrates acoustic binaural technologies (3D sounds) and GNSS technologies to guide people along a predefined track. The system provides acoustic track perception based on the integration of an augmented acoustic reality application developed for smartphonesand an accurate, reliable navigation solution that leverages GPS augmented with EGNOS/EDAS.
Traffic collision avoidance system for mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
This project propose a new system that will help mini UAVs meet the legal requirements for flights in controlled airspace by enabling them to localise other aircraft and send their own data to the air traffic authorities and other aeroplanes flying nearby. This will create new applications for UAV technology.
Wikitude Drive – Augmented Reality Navigation
Wikitude Drive is the world’s first fully functional mobile Augmented Reality navigation system with global maps. It is a light-weight turn-by-turn navigation system that uses Augmented Reality (AR) to draw driving instructions directly onto the live video stream of your smartphone.
Nogago - Leisure Navigation for Smartphones
Nogago is leisure navigation software for smartphones. It provides routes, maps and travel guides based on open content without restriction to particular regions. Nogago makes content available for offline use and keeps data up-to-date by means of a novel synchronisation algorithm.
Real-Time Rescue - A personal GNSS tracker
This person-over-board project (POB) aims to exploit a recognised gap in the commercial and marine leisure markets, by combining a crew overboard alarm and a real-time tracking and retrieval system. There are two components to this project, the device worn by the crew and the fixed ship unit.
