Enabling autonomous transport systems to GNSS satellite technology – The contribution of the HELMET project

December, 12, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. – Roma Tre University, via Vito Volterra 62, Rome

Today, more than ever, it is urgent to use intelligent, safe and sustainable transport systems that can make energy use more efficient and reduce CO2 emissions. The application of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) technology – a revolutionary satellite navigation system – guarantees precise and safe localization for self-driving vehicles traveling on rail and road infrastructure.
The European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) and Connected and Autonomous Car Technologies (CCAM) can interface with the GNSS network to develop an increasingly sustainable and competitive system. The workshop, which will take place on Monday 12 December at Roma Tre University, represents a unique opportunity to focus on the challenges facing rail and road operators to make the most of European GNSS infrastructures, integrated with data from the EGNOS and Galileo satellite systems.
During the day, the latest results and the contribution that the HELMET (High integrity EGNSS Layer for Multimodal Eco-friendly Transportation) project, funded by EU H2020 – EUSPA and coordinated by Radiolabs, can provide, will also be illustrated.
HELMET, in fact, has created an innovative project – first in Europe – to realize an open and interoperable standard GNSS enhancement solution, suitable for ERTMS and technologies for self-driving cars.
