Towards Autonomous Driving on road: the E-GNSS contribution
From basic concepts to “local integrity”

Date: February 23rd
Time: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM CET

The webinar is open to all the interested audience and it is free of charge.  ISMB researchers will present the GNSS systems, the status of the European GNSS and the fundamental role of the “local integrity” concept for the successful deployment of the autonomous driving.


0 Autonomous Driving
0.1 The Global Navigation Satellite Systems role

1 GNSS Principles
1.1 Introduction to satellite navigation systems:
• How position is computed
1.2 Basics on GNSS Receivers:
• Signal receptions impairments
• Receiver chain and operations
• Receivers categorization
– Specifications
– Performance

2 European GNSS
2.1 EGNOS (European augmentation) & EDAS: added value in ITS
• Augmentation Purposes
• EGNOS services
• EDAS (EGNOS Data Access Service)
2.2 Galileo and Authentication:
• Galileo advantages
• Galileo services
• Authentication: threats mitigation and target applications

3 Integrity
3.1 The integrity concept
3.2 The “local integrity”: a novel cooperative integrity monitoring concept, suitable to automotive applications in urban scenarios.
– Spatial/temporal characterization of possible degradations
– Experimental validation
– Live demonstration
