Venue: VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava, 17. listopadu 15/2172, 708 33 Ostrava - Poruba, Czech Republic, Building D, Room No D206
Organiser: Space Technologies and Satellite Systems Department of Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic under the support of GSA
Official workshop language: English (CZ/EN simultaneous interpretation – tbc)
Participation at the workshop: Free of charge


On 20th September 2013 the 10th International workshop GUF dedicated to the use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) services for people with limited mobility or orientation will be held in the City of Ostrava. EGNOS and Galileo will be very useful tools for people with limited mobility and orientation, helping them to better use public transport and increase their mobility.

GUF workshops represent a Czech initiative which assembles end users of GNSS applications. Through the mediation of GUF Workshops the participants are involved in technical discussion with European institutions responsible for the development of satellite navigation – European Commission, European GNSS Agency and European Space Agency.

The GUF Workshop „GNSS services for people with limited mobility or orientation“ is organised by the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic under the support of GSA.

Invitation to the European Transport Congress

 In connection with the upcoming workshop GUF we would like to invite you to the international congress ETC 2013, which will take place on 19. - 20. 9.2013 in Prague. The first congress day is focused besides the cooperation in science, research and education in transportation area on the electronic tolling and intelligent mobility. The Congress may therefore be an interesting additional program for workshop participants. The congress program and more information you can find on www.etc2013.fd.cvut.cz.

The seminar is divided into the following three basic sections:

  • (International/European) Strategy and Framework for GNSS for people with restricted mobility or orientation;
  • What solutions are available now;
  • End Users expectations and needs.

General GUF Workshops objectives:

  • Workshops are designed to formulate common standpoints and recommendations to end-users, which should be taken into account in the development of satellite navigation systems and their implemen­tation in practice.
  • The main objectives of the workshops are not only a presentations of current trends and technical capabi­lities of satellite systems for specific regions, but also defining the needs and requirements of end users for future GNSS satellite navigation systems, primarily for the future European system Galileo.
  • Initiate the discussions to define requirements and improvements for future services guaranteed by Gali­leo, which the current satellite navigation systems do not provide.
