GENEVA – Galileo / EGNOS Enhanced Driver Assistance

A consortium of nine European companies, including global players such as Volkswagen AG and TomTom International BV, participated in the research project GENEVA which was funded under the 7 th European Framework Programme. Goal was the development of highly precise, reliable and certifiable innovative safety relevant advanced driver assistant systems. These applications support and assist the driver by monitoring the traffic situation. GENEVA in particular addressed two specific intersection scenarios in order to demonstrate collision avoidance: the left turn assistance and the stop-line assistance. In the left turn assistance the driver is informed about oncoming traffic and in the stop-line assistance a red traffic light indicates ‘stop’. This special positioning system for urban areas stands out due to its accurate integrity monitoring, high position accuracy, and unlimited scalability. Existing map technologies are enhanced with additional attributes, such as stop lines and lane indicators which provide the underlying information for safety-related driver assistance systems in urban areas. GENEVA has strategic importance in the implementation of European satellite navigation initiatives, namely EGNOS and Galileo, in the automotive industry which is one of the biggest and economically very important markets.
