Today’s Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) market is huge. Growing demand for precise location information on smartphones and other hardware has seen GNSS technology embedded in 5 billion devices around the world – a figure that is expected to grow to 8 billion by 2020.
In this Webinar, “Galileo and the future of SatNav: drones, smart cities and self-driving cars” (June 13, 5pm CET), the GSA (European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency) will review the market – revealing findings from the latest edition of the GSA’s GNSS Market Report – and provide insight on global trends and future developments. In particular, the webinar will explore:
- How the GNSS market will impact the Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Cities and Big Data.
- How Galileo enhances the functionality of many new location-based applications
- The role that GNSS plays in the growing market of drones
- The potential of autonomous cars powered by GNSS
Fiammetta Diani – Deputy Head of Market Development at the European GNSS Agency (GSA) where she has been working since 2009, is responsible for market entry strategy of Galileo in the transport sector, especially focusing on autonomous driving/connected cars and Intelligent Transport Systems. Before joining the GSA, she worked in the private sector for more than 10 years, both in aerospace and information technology industry, gaining extensive experience in applications of space-based technologies to transport and other sectors.
Justyna Redelkiewicz Musial – In charge of the market and technology research at European GNSS Agency (GSA), managing publications of annual reports on satellite navigation use in various industries. She is also responsible for promoting Galileo in context-aware mobile applications and Internet of Things. After a few years of work with global chipset manufacturers, she was behind the first Galileo-enabled smartphone launched in 2016, using the European GNSS technology for location-based services. She is working with module makers and integrators to stimulate the use of GNSS and in particular of Galileo in IoT applications.
