GNSS-based smartphones are expected to peak a worldwide installed base of 6 billion of units by the end of 2018 and practically all newly commercialised smartphones come with multi-constellation GNSS capabilities. Does it mean we are at the end of innovation around location technologies? The answer is no! Innovation around the development of location-aware applications is far from being exhausted and many technology developments in LBS are indeed centred on GNSS. Among them, Galileo – the EU Global Satellite Navigation System- is bringing enhanced performances for Location Based Services in mass market and IoT applications.
