The aim of the contest is to develop a location-based solution, such as mobile application, wearable-based solution, asset management, tracking solution, or robotics, leveraging Galileo as a source of positioning, navigation and/or timing.
Each participating team shall propose a solution targeting one of the following innovation areas:
Crisis & Emergency response
Solutions supporting the recovery phase of COVID-19 pandemia, including the support to movement of people across borders, safe tourism, support to local businesses affected by the situation, special assistance to vulnerable groups and those at high risk, management of harvesting season or construction works implementing social distancing.
Smart transport for Green Deal
Solutions mitigating climate change including reduction of emissions; enabling more sustainable transports and new concepts of mobility, providing users with more affordable, accessible, healthier and cleaner alternatives and/or contributing to sustainable development of regions and smart cities.
Solution for Digital Age
Solutions using geolocation data in combination with other sources of data, such as Earth Observation and/or using Artificial Intelligence and/or Augmented Reality to create solutions that support citizens in their daily lives, leisure and professional tasks.
Solutions helping individuals and organizations to address cyber security challenges, for instance via authentication of position to reduce jamming/spoofing risks, in areas as diverse as automotive, logistics, mobile payments, or commercial maritime, or applications providing verification of location/time in a variety of use cases.
The MyGalileoSolution competition is divided into two independent and parallel tracks, each one with its lists of requirements and deliverables:
Track 1: From Idea to Prototype
The aim of Track 1 is to develop a beta version of an application or a prototype of a solution implementing an idea, reaching minimum 50 % of its functionality.
Track 2: From Prototype to Product
The aim of Track 2 is to develop a fully functional solution ready to be commercialise starting from a beta version of an application or a prototype.
