The EGALITE project is designed for intersectorial transfer of knowledge and staff training between large university from Poland - Silesian University of Technology, and two efficient SMEs: Pildo from Spain and LG Nexera from Austria.
The project achieves this goal in the field of multi-sensors mobility applications for emergency prevention and handling using European EGNOS/Galileo global navigation satellite system (GNSS). Through collaborative research programme, the partners develop prototypes of original and innovative terrestrial and aviation GNSS applications. Starting with multisensor studies and exploiting professional integrating technologies, the EGALITE partnership explores the above field by implementing:
(1) new functionalities to e-Call service intended to bring through mobile devices with integrated accelerometers rapid assistance to motorists involved in a collision or traffic jams anywhere in EU,
(2) system aimed to prevent emergency for helicopters approaching for landing guided by innovagive GNSS navigation - based system.
The research is carried out also in artificial intelligence and machine learning in order to recognise the type of emergency situation from sensor raw data supplemented by mathematical models.
The use of mass-market mobile phones devices with integrated GNSS receiver in combination with accelerometer will be considered in implementation of the enhanced e-Call service concept. For that purpose, investigating of the precision limits in positioning techniques for single frequency low cost GNSS receivers will also be studied. The application of GNSS in aviation industry will be studied in SUT’s Virtual Flying Laboratory equipped with professional flight simulators of airplanes and helicopters with mounted GARMIN 430 GPS receivers.
