Precise and secUre autoMotive trAcking

Objective

The PUMA project aims to develop a solution to mitigate the increasing problem of GNSS jamming and spoofing in road applications. With GPS jammers increasingly available in specialized electronic stores and on the Internet for less than 50€, this risk of disruption for safety and financially critical road applications such as road tolls, PAYG insurance, anti-theft systems or hazmat tracking is ever increasing.
The PUMA consortium, composed by partners with expertise in automotive, GNSS security and inertial sensors, aims to build a GNSS/EGNOS GSM tracking module that can interpret the wheel speed data from the car diagnostic system (available by default in all recent cars) and translate it to data compatible with a standard GNSS/EGNOS dead-reckoning (DR) ready receiver. This will allow seamless integration of DR tracking devices simply connecting the device to the standard OBD-II connector available in all vehicles, avoiding the use of inertial sensors.
Furthermore, research will be conducted to support the implementation of anti-spoofing algorithms based on the comparison of DR trajectories and GNSS observables. Such anti-spoofing techniques represent a high level of innovation, facilitating effective spoofing mitigation for low-cost mass-market road applications without the need for cryptographic signal authentication.
We foresee an enormous market potential for this technology as it resolves numerous issues that are obstacles to the adoption of Galileo and EGNOS in the road sector.
