The JUPITER project will hold a training session
free for the participants, number of seats limited

Galileo and EGNOS:
Key advantages for ITS applications.
Provided by the European Navigation Systems.
Tutorial for ITS developers


The Jupiter project will offer a one-day training session tailored for ITS application developers. The training will provide an overview on the most relevant aspects of European GNSS – EGNSS technology. The focus will be on the new European satellite navigation system Galileo, on the EGNOS augmentation system and on the impact of satellite navigation technology on the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) domain including its evolution.

The Jupiter training sessions will be provided by GNSS experts from some of the most relevant competence centres on GNSS technology in Europe: Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (Italy), GNSS Usage Innovation and Development of Excellence (France), Thales Alenia Space France (France). All the experts have a strong background both from the scientific and industrial point of view and will explain how GNSS and EGNSS technologies will improve the way ITS developers create and manage ITS applications.

Main topics:

  • European GNSS – EGNSS principles
  • Characterisation of EGNSS performance in relation to application requirements
  • Exploitation of Galileo, EGNOS and EDAS for road applications
  • Successful projects and case studies

JUPITER project is funded by the European GNSS Agency (GSA) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 R&D programme.

JUPITER aims to promote the European GNSS satellite navigation technology – EGNSS, in particular in the field of Intelligent Transportation Systems. The project will present EGNSS applications able to highlight EGNSS added value and advantages at several events with international relevance, above all the 2015 ITS World Congress in Bordeaux, France and the 2016 ITS World Congress in Melbourne, Australia.

Toulouse, a city to discover

Toulouse is situated in the south of France, at the northern tip of the Haute-Garonne departement, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

The city lies on a bend in the River Garonne which, flowing down from the Pyrenees, heads north-east before changing direction in Toulouse to head north-west towards the Atlantic Ocean.

In the field of gastronomy, the South-West is distinguished by its meat specialities & cheeses as well as its confectionery and violet-based specialities.

Toulouse, heart of the South

At the heart of the Midi region, Toulouse has always occupied an important place in the South-West of France. This 2000-year-old history shows itself in an architecture of brick and tiles that is typical of the cities, villages and farms of the Midi-Pyrenees region. Reflections of the golden light on the brick of Toulouse have earned it the name of the ‘Ville Rose’. This very special colouring confers an atmosphere on the city that is at once gentle and warm.

Toulouse, France’s fourth biggest city, is bubbling over with life.There’s nothing like a stroll around the historic centre, walking alongside the Garonne and the Canal du Midi, or stopping in one of the many cafés whose terraces spill out onto the streets.

The Pierre Baudis Congress Centre is located in the city center on the edge of the Compans-Caffarelli park. Situated at 15mn from the airport and 10mn by walk from the Capitole square and near the main shopping area.

Situated in the heart of south-west France, Toulouse is very aptly known as the “Pink City”. The pinkish colour of the bricks of its buildings and houses gives the city a unique charm.

Renowned for its atmosphere of good living, Toulouse is also a City of Art and History with an important architectural and artistic heritage, which has been stunningly well protected over the last centuries. It is delightful to discover its historic centre, which abounds in mansions from the Renaissance period. A jewel! This privilege makes of Toulouse the richest city in France for Renaissance mansions. These prestigious residences built in the 16th century by rich pastel traders are a reminder of the city’s prosperity in the days of the pastel trade. This dye-producing plant used to be grown in the plains around the Lauragais. Among the most beautiful Renaissance buildings of the city are : the Assézat mansion, which is today home to the Bemberg foundation, a private museum hosting a collection of paintings; the Bernuy mansion flanked with an octagonal tower; The Vieux-Raisin mansion; the Clary mansion or Pierre mansion.

An essential place to see is the Place du Capitol, the heart of the city. This very bustling square is surrounded by beautiful buildings such as the Capitol, a prestigious, 8-columned 16th-century building housing the town hall and theatre. Behind it is a 16th-century keep, the former Archives tower, which is today the main tourist office.

Next to be visited are the remarkable religious monuments of the old town: the Saint-Sernin basilica and its octagonal bell tower, a masterpiece of Romanesque art; the Jacobins cloister, a gem of Languedoc Gothic art, with its beautiful brick-built church and its main cloister building.

The pretty banks of the Garonne river, especially the Henri Martin walkway and the Daurade district, are lovely places to stroll along and relax in the sun.

The full-of-life streets in the historic centre are lined with a large number of cafés and shops. Ideal for shopping or to sip a drink on one of the numerous café terraces. Toulouse is also nightlife heaven with numerous restaurants, theatres, shows, bars, pubs and nightclubs. Furthermore, the buildings, monuments and houses in the old town are beautifully lit once night falls. Which makes Toulouse’s heritage fantastic to see by night.

City of Art and History, Toulouse is also a future-orientated hub of innovation with its aeronautics and space industries. Certain aspects of these two vast fields are accessible to the public: for example the Cité de l’Espace space museum, which offers interactive exhibitions and shows, and the Airbus site, which puts on guided tours, including of the new Airbus A380.


The Saint Sernin basilica

A masterpiece of Roman art, the Saint-Sernin basilica has had significant renovation work done on it over the past 30 years : recovery of the bell tower, extrication of the mural paintings of the 12th Century, revival of the alter from 1096, the crypts and the displays of the treasure trove (with its exceptional works). An important pilgrimage stop on the Way of Saint James, “Routes of Santiago de Compostela”. The treasure trove of the basilica is located in the ambulatory and in the crypts of the building.


The Augustins Museum

A museum rich in sculptures, the Musée des Augustins has a unique collection of Roman sculptures and also masterpieces from the area’s Gothic era as well as numerous 19th Century sculptures representing the vitality of Toulouse’s artistic creation. The collections are housed inside the sumptuous settings of the church and chapter-house of the former Augustins convent, along with a wing built at the end of the 19th Century following the plans of the architect Viollet-Le-Duc, and comprising a monumental stairway and vast sunlit rooms.

Capitole of Toulouse, and the square of the same name with the Occitan cross designed by Raymond Moretti on the ground.


The current city hall (Hôtel de Ville) and Theatre National du Capitole orchestra and opera house, this building is remarkable with its 8 columns of pink marble on façade, Henry IV courtyard, the place where the Duke of Montmorency was killed, and the “Salle des Illustres” inspired by the Farnese Gallery in Rome where the golden mouldings compete with the beauty of the paintings in the cartouches. Also see the rooms Jean-Paul Laurens, Henri Martin, Paul Gervais.
