The HELILEO Company has developed during the first period a prototype board which embeds a GALILEO ready receiver. The GNSS receiver already embeds the EGNOS capability in order to improve the availability, accuracy and reliability. This electronic board will integrate the interfaces with indoor locations systems in order to offer indoor and outdoor positioning in the same system. Additionally, the project will develop software library for Android in order to communicate with GALILEO ready chipsets.
The second impact is that the proposal should be led by an SME and should have a clear intention to commercialise the products and services developed, including a business plan.
This project is led by an SME: HELILEO. The project partners have the firm goal to end with a business plan to implement the GALENA solution in practise and to generate a joint business. This part is recognized as the most challenging part in a project like GALENA with several partners.
