Galileo 4 Mobility invites interest for small-scale pilots [free access]

November 12, 2019

Galileo 4 Mobility has announced an open call for small-scale pilots. The company aims to select transport operators and public authorities who can provide demonstration sites where technological solutions for geolocation, developed by its project partners, can be tested as small-scale pilots. The last date for the submission of applications is November 30, 2019.

 

The pilot involves implementation and testing of two technologies: On-Board Unit (OBU) technology and/or On-Demand Bus Platform technology. The Galileo global navigation satellite technology [what is this? No previous mention of this] will be equipped on one or two vehicles and will be tested for a period of one month.

 

The EUR24,000 budget for the open call will be equally distributed among the participants. The budget will partially or fully cover the costs of drivers, implementation of the proposed service on the platform (in case the On-Demand Bus Platform is requested), integration of the OBU technology, and analysis of the benefits of the technology provided for the pilot services. A maximum of eight participants can be selected for the call.

 

Galileo 4 Mobility aims to support the adoption of Galileo satellite technology to boost Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) as well as shared mobility solutions such as bus on demand, ride hailing and vehicle sharing. Currently, Galileo 4 Mobility solutions are already being tested in four different pilots, of which two are in Barcelona and one each in Thessaloniki and Paris.
