On 1st December 2020 Ficosa participated in the Road panel of the third User Consultation Platform (UCP) organized by the GSA. It was an online event within the European Space Week. The panel gathered 156 participants with comprehensive coverage in terms of value chain.
The presentations from the industry underlined that automated driving, being a safety-critical application, is demanding not only accuracy, but also availability and robustness.
Within the objective of improving the accuracy of car position in automated cars, Ficosa introduced MAGICA project and the mission to develop a multi-frequency (including E6) multiconstellation antenna ready for commercialisation and focused on performance, rather than the current antennas that focus on costs and dimensions.
