MEDUSA final event on E-GNSS for freight transport, road and ITS

October 21, 2014 @ 7:30 am - 3:30 pm

The Euromed GNSS II/MEDUSA project will launch its final event on E-GNSS for freight transport, road and ITS in Amman on 21 October 2014.

Organized by MEDUSA, under the auspices of the Ministry of Transport of Jordan, the event has a Euromed regional target and it is focused on the use of GNSS/EGNOS for freight and road transport, and particularly on the real experience conducted in the frame of MEDUSA by the Royal Jordanian Customs. Thanks to MEDUSA, with the support of European companies involved in the project and with the aid of the Ministry of Transport of Jordan, since April 2014, the Royal Jordanian Customs are having the opportunity to test and validate the use of EGNOS for tracking and tracing containers shipped across the Mediterranean sea and vehicles transporting goods in Jordan.

During the event, the participants will have the occasion to share the lessons learnt from this Jordan’s “case study”, to be informed about relevant best practices in Europe and in the Euromed region, as well as to debate about strategies and possible ways forward, in the light of national interests and common regional perspectives.

Euromed and European stakeholders, mainly from the satellite navigation sector and from the transport and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) communities, will participate in the event.

The final agenda of the event can be found here

The participation in the event is free of charge.
