Data infrastructure on positioning and navigation
On a European level, there is a process of establishing a new precision GPS system (Galileo), which will guarantee precision to deliver position data with high accuracy.
The new GPS data from Galileo will be more frequent and reliable. This will make it possible to use GPS data to follow moving objects (dynamic position data). The new data are expected to contribute to various administrative tasks of the state, regions and municipalities.
The new GPS data support automotive machinery operations, including management and maintenance of parks (lawn mowing, emptying of dustbins, etc.) The new data can also be used to improve traffic flows in cities through integrated use of GPS and sensor data. In addition, self-driving vehicles will be a common occurrence in the near future. Such vehicles will require optimal GPS data, using a combination of exact positions and sensors to operate effectively.
