Area: RECEIVERS
DESCRIPTION OF TOPIC GALILEO-2007-3.1-01
Mass-Market Receivers
Over the last few years, GNSS has gradually edged into the daily life of many EU citizens, in most cases through applications such as route guidance, tracking services, leisure, fleet management, emergency calls, and theft protection for vehicles, etc. This trend will continue in the future and many more people will become direct or indirect users of GNSS signals, services and applications. It is expected that the GNSS mass market will significantly increase. This means that most personal- and automotive devices will comprise a GNSS receiver component to support advanced location-based services. Global navigation satellite systems will continue to expand their impact on economy, society and the way how people will interact with each other. The early availability of low cost interoperable Galileo/GPS (and potentially EGNOS) mass market receivers and end user terminals is therefore important for the success of Galileo.
