e-KnoT - 2nd Business Research Dialogue:

Autonomous Mobility

When:     Wed., 18 Oct. 2017, 17:30 h to 21:30 h

Mid-December 2016 the European Commission declared the Global Navigation Satellite System "Galileo" operable. 

With the Business Research Dialogue the Bavarian Cluster Aerospace brings together stakeholders from different sectors benefitting from these free positioning, navigation and timing services. During the evening we will explore the use of these services when combined with autonomous mobility. In the inspiring atmosphere of the Seehaus loft we will illuminate business opportunities, state-of-the art and visions for tomorrow’s autonomous mobility, be it on the ground, in the air or on water. The joint efforts of the evening are directed to find out about promising chances and opportunities in the combination of geo data, cognitive computing and IoT supplemented with proper sensor Technologies.

Two key speakers, Prof. Fabio Dovis, Politecnico di Torino, and Karsten Mattmüller, Head of COC Security, Continental Automotive GmbH, Regensburg, will create an inspiring discussion basis for you. They will be followed by short impulse presentations of innovative ideas and applications linked to the autonomous mobility, thus facilitating the questions & answer rounds, sparkling new ideas and fire your dinner talks.

Objective of the evening is to discuss and find new applications and use cases for GNSS in the context of autonomous mobility, to give feedback to the European GNSS Agency in Prague (responsible for the European GNSS infrastructures) about navigation and positioning requirements in specific use cases.

Target group

Target group of the Business Research Dialogue are CEOs of small & medium-sized companies as well as heads of research and development groups in the fields of GNSS downstream technologies and applications linked to autonomous mobility.


For this event, bavAIRia teamed up with the Politecnico di Torino and the Continental Corporation:

Politecnico di Torino is a partly-public Engineering university based in Turin, Italy. Established in 1859, it is Italy’s oldest technical university. The university offers courses in the fields of Engineering, Architecture and Industrial Design. The Department of Electronics and Telecommunications is among the largest Departments in Politecnico di Torino, accounting for roughly 100 permanent faculty members, 50 administrative and technical staff members and 180 post docs and PhDs. It promotes, coordinates and manages fundamental and applied research, training and teaching activities, consultant activities, technology transfer and provides services to the local community in the fields of electronics and telecommunications in the ICT area.

- The Continental Corporation, commonly known as Continental, is a leading German automotive manufacturing company specialising in tyres, brake systems, interior electronics, automotive safety, powertrain and chassis components, tachographs and other parts for the automotive and transportation industries. The Continental Automotive GmbH is a leading international supplier of automotive electronics & mechatronics.


The workshop is under the scope of e-KnoT - a project run by a consortium of qualified institutions with strong experiences in GNSS education, research, cooperation with companies and the industrial world. e-KnoT is supported by the European Union as part of the Horizon2020 programme.
