Plus, see measurements displayed that show the performance of GPS and EGNOS. Watch in real time how GPS satellites move across the sky and see the effect of buildings blocking the signal.

Satellite Traffic Management

Europe’s roads are congested and mobility demands continue to grow, bringing economic and environmental challenges. SATELLIC shows how satellite-based positioning enables innovative mobility management – as national or urban road pricing and eco-driving – helping drivers to decrease fuel use and CO2 emissions. Take a drive in town; see how it works and learn how EGNOS increases the accuracy and integrity of the system, as proven by field trials.

Experience now OPTI-TRANS, helps you navigate across Europe using various modes of transportation. The system combines information from transport authorities and vehicle owners and determines the optimum route and mode depending on your actual location.

Galileoenabled mobile environment monitoring system, for urban pollution detection

See how urban pollution can be detected on location using a flexible, mobile and real-time system that delivers road network data. Levels of pollution can be plotted on a map by combining high-accuracy measurement with satellite navigation positioning, providing new traffic management solutions. See how pollution levels around the Village are registered in real time.


Satellite navigation signal falsification or ‘spoofing’ is an increasing threat. Spoofing can allow a device or service to show a false position or itinerary, disrupting business and safety-critical systems. TIGER has developed a system to determine whether a signal can be trusted using a number of techniques that can be applied to mass-market receivers. The demo will show a token that only allows access to a computer in certain locations and detects any attempts at spoofing the navigation signal.

Punchbyte - g-diag

g diag is a broad solution for all kinds of maintenance and inspection work. The software monitors the position of personnel and of the workplace, delivers relevant data in real time, and leads workers step-by-step through a maintenance task. Experience live demos of how it works in the Village.


ImaGeo provides tourists and users on the move with access to onthe- spot information about cultural objects and attractions in their location. With a click visitors can retrieve information about the buildings around the Village, while sharing information, pictures and routes with other users.


By combining satellite navigation positioning and wind measurements, Osmografo automatically plots the area covered by search & rescue dogs’ sense of smell of in real time. Learn how search & rescue coordinators determine which area still needs to be searched before leaving the zone.


Until recently, the visually impaired could only rely on canes and dogs when mobile. While a number of navigation devices and services are on the market, they do not provide sufficient accuracy. Using EGNOS, PERNASVIP improves precision to the level required by associations for the visually impaired. With EGNOS, service is also improved in urban environments. Wearing glasses that simulate visual disabilities, visitors will be able to move about the Village by following instructions provided by the device.

The Port
European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA)

Using a combination of satellite positioning systems and images, discover how the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) is improving safety and security for the EU. See how EMSA detects illegal oil spills and identifies the polluters, in order to prevent pollution in our seas.

Sci-Tech POB (person over board) System

If you fall overboard at sea, your best chance of rescue is by the boat you have fallen from. Experience how Sci- Tech uses EGNOS to locate and monitor a casualty in the water in real-time and learn how the system guides the boat back to the person over board.

The Neighbourhood

Liveline, a new geo-social service, will demonstrate location-based mobile tracking of ‘vulnerable people’. Watch a live demonstration of how Liveline helps the Eden family keep track of its members in a crowd. Will you be my Liveline?

United Maps “Walk & Ride”

United Maps provides fully navigable, highly detailed vector maps on top of professional street map data. With added buildings, mass transit networks, relevant pedestrian information and other unique aspects, United Maps enables multi-modal routing and location-based media and services. See how the “Walk & Ride” service can guide you with comprehensive coverage and rich mapping details across an entire city.


MOW-by-Sat will present BigMow, an autonomous satellite navigationguided lawn mower that can manoeuvre, with centimetre precision, across a golf course, stop neatly at its edge and turn around to cut another swath.
