Participants in the day-long event will have a unique opportunity to ride in an autonomous vehicle fitted with a Galileo-enabled ESCAPE GNSS engine (EGE). The EGE is an innovative positioning engine that leverages the Galileo signals and services to provide a core positioning component in autonomous vehicles.
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.

Cars equipped with this engine will be showcased in two demonstrations at the event. The first demo will involve two Renault Zoe electric cars being (autonomously) driven at the same time. 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 with the estimated position obtained using the EGE along with RTK. 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 EGE hardware has been developed based on state-of-the-art practices in the design of automotive electronic control units and is based on the first automotive-grade GNSS and Galileo receiver. As a result, all of its interfaces and configurations have been developed to be fully compliant with the most widely recognized trends in the sector,” said GSA Head of Market Development Fiammetta Diani.

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

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. There will also be a presentation of the TESEO APP receiver from STMicroelectronics, which combines multiple-frequency and multi-constellation tracking and enables autonomous-driving systems to combine precise positioning with sensor data for enhanced performance, safety, and reliability.

Following the presentations, there will be a workshop on localisation integrity for autonomous driving, with discussions on relative and absolute localization and integrity estimation for land-based applications.
