Calling for GNSS apps supporting authorities and citizens in the COVID-19 emergency response and recovery
The European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) is compiling a repository of apps using Global Navigation Satellite Systems as a knowledge bank of solutions that are being used to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Aiminig at providing a toolbox to help authorities, emergency response services, citizens and app developers to understand what resources are currently available and what needs remain unmet (at www.useGalileo.eu/GNSS4Crisis) the agency is calling for already working apps, available in app stores, that are being used to map the spread of the coronavirus, to monitor incidences of the disease, or to alert users about possible risky contacts. GSA is also looking for practical apps that facilitate the daily lives of citizens, such as by helping them to manage queues in supermarkets, pharmacies and public spaces or by facilitating the logistics of goods, which has become more complicated in the current situation.
