ESA and GMV Present Field Results Friday, March 12 on Fused GNSS – 5G Localization

A free virtual workshop sponsored by GMV and ESA will be held on the 12th March between 09:30 and 12:00 (see registration details below) to broadcast the achievements of GINTO5G project. The main goal of this flagship project is to assess through field campaigns and simulations the benefits of fusing GNSS and 5G into one superior positioning solution. The project project funded by ESA´s European GNSS Evolution Programme and implemented by an international consortium led by GMV is now entering into the final stretch on its road to completion.

“The GINTO5G project marks an impressive landmark in state-of-the-art navigation technologies as it shows the potential of GNSS and 5G” says Florin Grec, ESA´s Technical Officer. “As far as we are aware, this is the first and only European measurement campaign with GNSS and genuine 5G positioning signals” remarks Francisco Jose Mata Aroco, GINTO5G Project Manager at GMV.

The webinar also includes a panel on vision for 6G featuring guest speakers representing mobile communication industry, GNSS, and research community. Lastly,  Fraunhofer IIS, Telefonica, ZTE, and Rhode & Schwarz will showcase 5G testbeds.

GINTO5G Description:

In order to support the 3GPP standardization activities and to carry out ambitious field studies and development of novel simulations environments, the GINTO5G project was launched by ESA in late 2018 and it contributes to ESA´s initiative to understand the place of GNSS in the 5G landscape.

The implementation of this Project is overseen by GMV (Spain) which coordinates a consortium of world-class experts in the field of navigation and communications: Fraunhofer IIS (Germany), DLR (Germany), Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Spain), u-blox (UK), Telefonica I+D (Spain). For the field-tests, ESA and GMV set up a collaboration with Deutsche Telekom (Germany), which provided information about its telecommunication network, and NovAtel (Canada), which provided state-of-the-art GNSS equipment and access to modern corrections services.

Registration details:

This event is free to attend and can accommodate maximum 500 participants. It will be recorded and provided on-demand.
