After two intense years, the Galileo Integrated Optimization with VANET Enhancements (GLOVE) project has come to its end, achieving both scientific and practical results. The final event took place on Thursday, the 11th of December 2014, in the premises of SiTI - Istituto Superiore sui Sistemi Territoriali per l’Innovazione in Turin.
GLOVE is a European project, led by Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions Research Area of ISMB, which has explored novel architectures and services for the integration between Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), especially the European Galileo System, and vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs).
The project involves two ISMB’s Research Areas: Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions, which is responsible for synchronous networks, and Navigation Technologies (the ISMB branch of NavSAS), which developed the concept of Local Integrity. The Consortium includes also Centro Ricerche Fiat, DLR, Galatasaray University, Infotech, and CBK.
At the final event the Consortium presented the emerged ideas about how GNSS (time and position) could be beneficial to VANETs, how VANETs could be beneficial to GNSS receivers and what services could be delivered thanks to GNSS and VANETs. The following poster highlights the Local GNSS Integrity Concept developed by NavSAS during the project.
