Join us at the University of Technology of Compiègne, France, on 27 November for a live demonstration of the first Galileo-enabled autonomous vehicle made in the EU and see for yourself how Galileo is driving the future of autonomous vehicles.

Only a few places left! Participation in the event is free of charge, but places are limited. If you are interested in the future of mobility and would like to take part in this exciting live demo, sign up now!

The event will start at 11.00 AM and will end at 5.30 PM circa. The logistic information is available on the following page. The Agenda is available here.

Sessions & Press point:
autonomous
driving cars equipped with the ESCAPE GNSS ENGINE

 Lunch and Coffee will be served
during the DEMO Session

First
demo:
attendees and journalists will be able to get onboard
of a vehicle and take a ride on a driverless car in the UTC track.

Second
demo:
another vehicle will be manually driven on a public road in Compiègne to demonstrate performance in a peri-urban environment. No passengers will be
hosted in this car, attendees and journalists will be able to watch a live
video of the test from a monitor in the coffee/lunch area broadcast via 4G
with the estimated position obtained using the EGE along with RTK.

13:40 – 15:00

ESCAPE
presentations:

       1. Use cases for autonomous driving, Javier Ibanez-Guzman, Renault

       2. The TESEO APP receiver, Giuseppe
Avellone, ST

       3. High accuracy and integrity, Enrique Domínguez Tijero, GMV

       4. Localization Standards, Miguel Ortiz, IFSTTAR

       5. HD maps for localization, Philippe Xu, UTC

Q&As with all the
Partners and GSA

Cars equipped with the ESCAPE GNSS engine will be showcased in two demonstrations at the event. The first demo will involve a Renault Zoe electric car being autonomously driven. During the demo, participants and journalists will have a unique opportunity to get on board the vehicles and take a driverless ride on the University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC) track.

In the second demo, a third vehicle will be driven on a public road in Compiègne to demonstrate its performance in a peri-urban environment. There will be no passengers in this car, but the participants will be able to watch a live video of the test broadcast via 4G. The demos will be followed by a Q&A session where journalists and other participants will be able to put their questions to the developers of the engine.

The demos will be followed by a series of presentations on the ESCAPE
project, including use cases for autonomous driving, high accuracy and
integrity, localization standards, and HD maps for localization.

In the afternoon, the event will focus on the concept of Integrity with a dedicated Workshop on Localization Integrity for Autonomous Driving

Please find attached in the following table the list of the presentations. This Workshop on Localization Integrity for Autonomous Driving will complement the themes addressed in the first part of the day.
