Innovations in this area could, for example, lead to:

  • rail signalling with no need for infrastructure
  • driverless cars
  • more effective time-critical financial services.

The project will develop new models for working with the UK Catapult Centres – physical centres that bring together businesses, scientists and engineers to apply scientific research.

In particular it will link with the Satellite Applications Catapult and other universities expert in the satellites field.

The project will also take advantage of the European Satellite Navigation Competition, to increase the commercialisation of the research.
