EC Public Hearing on 112 using European GNSS - Brussels
The Commission will hold a hearing with stakeholders involved in providing emergency assistance in response to 112 calls to gather their insights and contributions with regard to the opportunity of enabling mobile phones to determine the caller location using the GNSS - and in particular the European GNSS - and to send it to public-safety answering points (PSAP).
The EC is considering the establishment of a delegated act to set out measures to introduce GNSS capability, and in particular European GNSS capability, in mobile phones so that they are enabled support the transfer of caller location in case of 112 Emergency Calls. This act could enter into in mid-2016.
Given the technical and commercial stakes, this hearing represents an opportunity to voice your concerns and expectations on the actions to be undertaken by the European Institutions in the coming years to maximise and ensure the market uptake of European GNSS downstream applications.
During the meeting you will be invited to comment on the questions raised in the consultation document.
Please note that you have to register by April 30, 2014 at the latest.
