Pioneering activities are being researched in terms of security and, notably, e-call. eu). TELEFOT involves telephone devices equipped with a GNSS function. It is led by the VTT (Technical Research Centre of Finland). eu). 4. The production of information The vehicle of the future will be a vehicle that communicates: – with external infrastructure; – with its occupants, driver and passengers (seen as ex-pedestrians and/or owners of mobile devices). g. traffic data and maps), with respect to which the creation of activities and new operators are expected.

We will mention a few recent works which will influence “ecosystems” in which the applicative services of GNSS will be created in the future. 26 Geopositioning and Mobility The concepts of “ubiquitous and pervasive computing” give rise to the development of new approaches, with self-regulation, selfadaptation and emergence features [GAB 00, GAB 06, BAK 06, NAI 07]. A classification of interaction paradigms has been proposed in [GAB 00] and [GAB 06] to emphasize the objectives to be attained to meet the new challenges and expectations.

This field is loaded with applicative innovations of GNSS, which are susceptible to increase short- and medium-term entrepreneurial initiatives of essentially following logical integration of existing solutions and not requiring high levels of industrialization. These GNSS applications are the preferred targets for these activities: – “B to B” innovations; – combined development of small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB) belonging to information and communication technologies (ICT) or business users; – niche strategies.
