Pilot projects

SCORE - Opening new opportunities for dispatching and incident management

SCORE architecture enables determination of position within some seconds. The usage of a terrestrial network for information transfer allows positioning even in environments where GPS only cannot be used.

ADVANTIS - The value of Integrity and Interoperability

A centralised Integrity Guaranteed Localisation Service.
An answer to the needs posed by applications based on satellite navigation where integrity of the positioning and/or timing becomes essential. An efficient way to put in contact the individuals that regularly use non-navigational location-based services with the companies and organisations providing these services.

GIROADS - Showing the path to Intelligent Roads

GIROADS (GNSS Introduction in the ROAD Sector), a 24-month project commissioned by the Galileo Joint Undertaking with funds from the European Commission's 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technology Development, will aggregate the road community's proposals to facilitate the technical and commercial introduction of Europe's satellite navigation programme to the road transport sector.

GADEROS - Galileo Demonstrator for Railway Operation Systems

Duration: December 2001 - June 2004

GADEROS is a pilot project under the Growth thematic programme of the 5th RTD Framework Programme of the European Union. Together with the Galilei study, it forms part of on-going research work for the GALILEO programme. It is managed by the Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and Transport.
GADEROS will demonstrate the use of GNSS safety-of-life features for defining a satellite-based system to perform train location for safe railway applications that will be integrated into the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) / European Train Control System (ETCS). The system will offer another technological approach for train location , mainly for conventional and low-density traffic lines.

GALLANT - GALileo for safety of Life Application of driver assistaNce in road Transport

Duration: January 2002 - December 2003

GALLANT is a pilot project under the Growth thematic programme of the 5th RTD Framework Programme of the European Union. Together with the Galilei study, it forms part of on-going research work for the GALILEO programme. It is managed by the Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and Transport.
GALLANT is the follow-on to the 'GALILEO Application for Road Safety and Mobility" GALA pilot project, which focused on specifying the technical needs of an Advanced Driver Assistant System (ADAS) for the road environment. It is a significant important improvement over the prototype system developed in recent years within different national and international initiatives, using GPS integrated with ADAS.

INSTANT - Infomobility services for safety-critical applications

Duration: July 2002 - March 2004

INSTANT is a pilot project under the Growth thematic programme of the 5th RTD Framework Programme of the European Union. Together with the Galilei study, it forms part of on-going research work for the GALILEO programme. It is managed by the Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and Transport.
INSTANT addresses sustainable mobility and intermodality and focuses on the management of large-scale events and emergency situations. In particular, it is targeting the 2004 Olympic Games, as a case-study, and proposes safety-of-life applications in two different environments (sea and land) and in different land surroundings (urban, semi-urban).
Applications will make extensive use of up-to-date GNSS receivers in close integration with other emerging technologies such as geo-information, mobile satellite communications, personal digital assistants, and mobile mapping software.

NAUPLIOS - Improving safety in maritime navigation

Duration: July 2002 - March 2004

NAUPLIOS is a pilot project under the Growth thematic programme of the 5th RTD Framework Programme of the European Union. Together with the Galilei study, it forms part of on-going research work for the GALILEO programme. It is managed by the Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and Transport.
The project will demonstrate the added value of the GALILEO positioning and SAR services for commercial shipping. It will make use of the EGNOS Test Bed and six vessels equipped with autonomous terminals - an EGNOS receiver, a satellite telecom link and an Automatic Identification System (AIS). NAUPLIOS Control Centres will monitor results, which will be adapted in a geographical information system and formatted prior to being transmitted to several kinds of end users.
NAUPLIOS will demonstrate how monitoring and surveillance of European waters can be improved such that risks can be identified at an early stage and measures can be taken to avoid major pollution incidents.

POLARIS - A navigation system performance-analysis tool

Duration: January 2002 - December 2003

POLARIS is a pilot project under the Growth thematic programme of the 5th RTD Framework Programme of the European Union. Together with the Galilei study, it forms part of on-going research work for the GALILEO programme. It is managed by the Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and Transport.
Polaris will allow the assessment of navigation performances using GALILEO alone or combined with various Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and a wide variety of systems and sensors. A powerful simulation tool for users with a range of satellite navigation experience and needs, Polaris will provide clear results that can be translated into GALILEO system requirements.
