A French University has demonstrated the first autonomous vehicle powered by Galileo.

In a world first, the Renault ZOE electric car can autonomously drive along public roads using Galileo signals and the ESCAPE GNSS engine (EGE), funded by the European GNSS Agency.

The EGE prototype design includes several major components, including a novel multi-frequency, multi-constellation automotive-grade GNSS receiver. The main distinguishing feature of the ESCAPE receiver is its ability to precisely and simultaneously process signals from two different GNSS bands and from different satellite constellations.

The receiver is also a first-of-a-kind device in its segment to support the new Navigation Message Authentication (NMA) service of Galileo - the open E1 signal.

Just curious, what is an “automotive-grade GNSS receiver.” Is this different to one that is built into a phone or is it simply one that isn’t as accurate as what the military might have?

I live in the mountains near Carcassonne , and the GPS signals and phone relays are always dropping out ...hope the car is supplied with good air bags if it goes into the deserted areas of France .

GNSS

GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System, and is the standard generic term for satellite navigation systems that provide autonomous geo-spatial positioning with global coverage. This term includes e.g. the GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou and other regional systems. GNSS is a term used worldwide The advantage to having access to multiple satellites is accuracy, redundancy and availability at all times. Though satellite systems don't often fail, if one fails GNSS receivers can pick up signals from other systems. Also if line of sight is obstructed, having access to multiple satellites is also a benefit. Common GNSS Systems are GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou and other regional systems.

GPS

The United States' Global Positioning System (GPS) consists of up to 32 medium Earth orbit satellites in six different orbital planes, with the exact number of satellites varying as older satellites are retired and replaced. Operational since 1978 and globally available since 1994, GPS is currently the world's most utilized satellite navigation system.

GNSS/GPS applications include:
Tracking/Mapping Devices
Industrial Machinery
Sea vessels
Air Navigation
Automobiles
From HERE But you are probably referring to the Automotive grade bit, and who knows?

I do hope all those visible scanners on that car stay clean.

What happens when the car goes into a tunnel, or multi-storey car park, and loses all gps signals???
