The final presentations of ESA’s second Galileo smartphone app competition will take place April 18. The public is invited to watch the awards ceremony via livestream.

The competition’s goal is to develop an app capable of performing fixes using raw Galileo satnav measurements. Members of the public can also vote for their favorite app.

Five teams are competing this year. The competition is run by the European Space Agency (ESA)

in collaboration with the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) plus the European Commission with the support of Google. It was open to all students from European universities and trainees in posts at European research and development organisations.

Follow Thursday’s event from 09:00 to 16:00 CEST on Livestream at https://livestream.com/ESA/GalileoAppCompetition2019.
