Over 40% of all mobile applications depend on the positioning delivered by Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). In fact, millions of people use Location Based Services (LBS) everyday, creating a wealth of business opportunities. Galileo, the European GNSS, opens the door to new possibilities for mobile applications, offering enhanced location information for mobile devices. Presented by the European GNSS Agency, the Galileo Power Hour highlighted the latest trends in location-enabled consumer applications and Galileo contribution to freely available ubiquitous location for developers and users.
