JUPITER (Joint EUropean Project for International ITS/EGNSS awareness Raising) is a collaborative European project coordinated by Aerospace Valley, financed by the European Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 and managed by the European GNSS Agency (GSA). With an overall budget of 1.7 million Euros, this three-year project aims at developing and fostering the use of EGNSS in the ITS sector.
To reach this objective, the JUPITER consortium implements 4 main actions:

  • Developing a Galileo receiver adapted to ITS
  • Promoting ITS applications using EGNSS during the ITS World Congress 2015 in Bordeaux with the setting up of a dedicated booth gathering SMEs and end-users
  • Fostering networking, share of good practices, market opportunities and business development
  • Organising training sessions in Europe and worldwide (Latin America, South-East Asia, Australia, Africa…) dedicated to ITS applications developers and end-users to use and integrate EGNSS technologies.

The JUPITER consortium includes ten partners from 5 European countries: Aerospace Valley (FR), ERTICO – ITS Europe (BE), TOPOS Aquitaine (FR), Ministry of Transport of Czech Republic (CZ), Pildo Labs (ES), Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (IT), Capital High Tech (FR), Thales Alenia Space France (FR), Telespazio France (FR), and GNSS Usage Innovation & Development of Excellence (FR).
The first major action of JUPITER is to promote innovative EGNSS based ITS applications at the ITS World Congress 2015 held in Bordeaux from 5 to 9 October 2015 through a dedicated EGNSS Application Village gathering SMEs and end-users.
To select a wide range of available solutions and examples of successful uses to be present on this EGNSS Application village, a call for candidates addressed to SMEs, local authorities, and transport operators using or developing EGNSS solutions for ITS was organised in Europe and worldwide.
Among all the applications received, the jury composed with the JUPITER consortium members and ITS/ EGNSS experts has selected 22 SMEs and 7 transport authorities. These actors will showcase during the congress the added value of the EGNSS in various ITS applications such as autonomous vehicles, traffic management, mobility of people and goods…
The JUPITER project financially supports the selected SMEs and transport authorities to prepare their venue to the Congress, and offers them the opportunity to participate to B2B meetings for developing new business partnerships.
Four of the 22 SMEs have also been selected by the jury to get an additional financial support to develop an official demonstration to be presented among the other ITS World Congress 2015 dynamic demonstrations.
