Intelligent transport and navigation by satellite
One of the main pillars of European transport policy is stimulating technological innovation. European Space Policy is introducing the notion of satellite navigation with the Galileo and Egnos programmes, with a view to optimising traffic management, whether road, waterborne or aerial. Better managing traffic not only engenders safety but ensures a reduction in pollution since journeys and traffic are streamlined. Satellite navigation enables emergency services to better carry out their functions (e.g. in fires, road accidents, mountain rescue, etc).
