The project introduces the European geolocation system in the field of mobility

Last January, AMB participated in the kick off meeting of the GALILEO FOR MOBILITY (G4M) project that will use the European navigation technology for the Galileo satellite to obtain the real position of users and vehicles, expanding the availability of signal, and thus improve the mobility services of the area..

G4M is promoted by the  European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA)  and funded by the European Research program HORIZON 2020. The aim of the project is to support the introduction of the GALILEO European geolocation technology in the field of transportation and mobility, through several pilot tests concerning different mobility services.

Pilot at Cervelló

Within this project, AMB will lead a pilot in the municipality of Cervelló, where a bus service will be offered on demand, in order to improve the service frequency and ensure efficient communications between the center and the outskirts of the town. If the pilot in Cervelló is implemented successfully, AMB could extend this service progressively to other municipalities in the metropolitan area of Barcelona.

The first meeting of G4M project was held at the headquarters of the European GNSS Agency Systems in Prague where the project partners from United Kingdom, Greece and France participated. The organizational and management aspects, work packages, and the implementation of the project havfe been planned during the meeting. In addition, the different pilots that will be carried out have been presented, including the bus on demand in Cervelló, shared motorcycles in Barcelona, shared taxis in Thessaloniki and electric bicycles and cars in Paris.
