Satellite Navigation in Transport and Logistics event
16 March 2004 - Institute of Physics, London

The availability of accurate position, time and velocity from satellite navigation systems has widespread applications in the transport and logistics arena.

Forthcoming upgrades to GPS and the new European signals from EGNOS and Galileo will provide enhanced capabilities in accuracy, coverage and signal integrity. These will greatly increase the range of satellite navigation based solutions available to transport and logistics management.

If you need to know where your vehicles or containers are, what time they are at a specific location or even the speed at which they are travelling then this seminar is for you. You will be brought up to date on the latest applications of satellite navigation in your sector, including:

  • How satellite navigation works
  • Current and future capabilities of satellite navigation
  • The European Galileo project
  • Road User Charging using GPS/Galileo
  • Asset tracking using satellite navigation
  • Transport and fleet management
