COST SaPPART (Satellite Positioning Performance Assessment for Road Transport) is one of EU's COST Actions. COST is the longest-running European framework supporting trans-national cooperation among researchers, engineers and scholars across Europe. Aims of COST SaPPART are:
- To develop a framework for the definition of service levels for the GNSS-based positioning terminals, used in ITS and personal mobility applications, and the associated examination framework for certification purposes;
- To promote high-level educational and training programmes in the fields of GNSS positioning, GNSS-based ITS and personal mobility applications;
- To promote the use of GNSS in general, and EGNOS and Galileo in particular, in ITS and personal mobility domains, for their common long-term development and deployment in Europe.
Research Manager Laura Ruotsalainen from Sensors and Indoor Navigation group of the Department of Navigation and Positioning is leading Working Group 2 of the COST SaPPART action.
