    Egnos SDK new release

    Hello,
    we inform all users that the European Commission is releasing the new EGNOS SDK for app developers.
    This EGNOS SDK allows taking advantage of the European system that provides enhanced positioning accuracy and other features (e.g. information on the reliability of the position itself) directly towards the smartphones.
    It is available for free on the EGNOS Portal at http://egnos-portal.gsa.europa.eu/de...kits/egnos-sdk

    I am, on behalf of the European Commission, available for any further info, request, questions, you may have on this topic and will post reply here. I will also post further details in the next weeks, following up at this thread.
    Thanks and regards,
    Leonardo.

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hello again everybody!
    To start approaching the EGNOS SDK, install the Demo App on your smartphone (The EGNOS SDK is fully compatible with Android, iPhone, RIM Blackberry, Windows WP7 :-) ) and with the support of the external receiver you can experience the power of high accuracy positioning directly in your hand.

    http://egnos-portal.gsa.europa.eu/de...kits/egnos-sdk

    Download the DEMO APP and follow the How To Install Guide.

    As always if you have any question please reply to this thread!
    Cheers

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Me again, with further info that can be used also as a tutorial on the EGNOS APK :-)

    After the first approach to the EGNOS SDK through the Demo App, you can start developing your own positioning Application for smartphones

    The EGNOS SDK allows you as a developer to use EGNOS in smartphones without needing an extensive knowledge of radionavigation by satellite. This software calculates an EGNOS enhanced position from the EGNOS Signal-In-Space or, alternatively, from the internet (SISNeT, which is the predecessor to EDAS).
    Download the SDK Source Code and follow the How to Install guide http://egnos-portal.gsa.europa.eu/de...kits/egnos-sdk

    The European commission has supported the enhancement of the EGNOS SDK through new functionalities: a skyplot, - an augmented reality feature - and better accuracy that can be easily tested with the EGNOS SDK Demo App downloadable on the Egnos Portal linked above.

    Thanks, cheers.

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hello,
    I wanted to add to this short tutorial on the EGNOS SDK a few more info on how to contact support. If you encounter any problem or just want to elaborate on some issues about the EGNOS SDK, using the Demo App or the SDK Core, refer to the supporting documentation at the following link (http://egnos-portal.gsa.europa.eu/de...load-egnos-sdk ) and if you do not find an answer to your questions you can directly write to: egnos.toolkits@gsa.europa.eu
    I will also monitor this thread and in case will try to support you directly.
    Cheers!
    Leonardo

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hello,
    I've an interesting update from the European Commission.
    Which is the launch of the third version of the EGNOS SDK for app developers! The EGNOS SDK enables to improve the GPS positioning performance of smartphones by providing enhanced positioning accuracy and other features (e.g. information on the reliability of the position calculated by the smartphone).
    This is possible by enabling the smartphone to receive data from EGNOS, the first European venture in the area of satellite navigation. Thanks to EGNOS, smartphone apps can benefit from high quality and reliable positioning information.
    The EGNOS SDK v3 is completely open source and available for free on the EGNOS Portal
    http://egnos-portal.gsa.europa.eu/de...kits/egnos-sdk.

    Updates on the new features will be presented again in this thread in the next few weeks but if you don’t want to wait that long you can find out more at the follwoing link:
    http://www.egnos-portal.eu/developer...ties-egnos-sdk

    Thanks and cheers,
    Leonardo

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hello,
    I'm back as promised with some additional info.

    The EGNOS SDK allows you as a developer to use EGNOS in smartphones without needing an extensive knowledge of GPS positioning. The position obtained by the GPS receiver in the smartphone is enhanced thanks to EGNOS satellites, or alternatively, from the internet thanks to the satellite data made available by the European Commission (for free!).

    The SDK enables to do much more than improving the positioning thanks to EGNOS. The new Demo App showcases a series of possible new applications, including:
    • Receiving EGNOS information through the internet thanks to SISNeT and EDAS support;
    • Use the smartphone to broadcast ‘live’ EGNOS positioning enhancement to nearby devices through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and file logging;
    • Detecting and eliminating faulty satellites or measurements involved in the position calculation to obtain a better positioning accuracy;
    • Customizing the algorithms to obtain the position to improve the accuracy for specific environments.

    Discover all possibilities by downloading the SDK Source Code, the Demo App and following the How to Install guide:
    http://egnos-portal.gsa.europa.eu/de...load-egnos-sdk

    More info next week, cheers.
    Leonardo

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hello, me again!
    Today I wanted to remind you that the EGNOS SDK is particularly suitable to create applications where the reliability of the position is essential.

    The special prize of Galileo Masters 2012 for the most promising EGNOS application idea has been awarded to 3Sound. The system is a personal navigation system for visually impaired people, based on the integration of 3D sounds and GNSS to guide people along a predefined track. The system provides an acoustic track perception based on the integration of augmented acoustic reality app developed for smartphone and an accurate and reliable navigation solution based on GPS and EGNOS, thanks to the EGNOS SDK.

    You can find out more about the app and the Galileo Masters here:
    http://www.galileo-masters.eu/index....ige=gsa12.html

    while you can download the EGNOS SDK to build your own apps at the following address:
    http://egnos-portal.gsa.europa.eu/de...load-egnos-sdk

    Any question please contact me or reply to this thread.
    Cheers,
    Leonardo

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hello!
    The European Commission wanted me to remind you that the EGNOS SDK v3 is fully available for different OS: access the EGNOS portal for downloading your version of the toolkit (Download the EGNOS SDK). Check also the compatibility of your OS version here.
    If you encounter any problem in your development or just want to discuss some issues about the EGNOS SDK, using the Demo App or the SDK Core, refer to the supporting documentation . If you do not find an answer to your questions, directly write us at: egnos.toolkits@gsa.europa.eu.

    More simply, you can just ask by replying to this post :-). I will be glad to help!

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hello again,
    the EGNOS SDK is being increasingly adopted by the developers community to create apps based on superior positioning. It was successfully implemented the EGNOS SDK within the application GeoPointer™ M3 for Mobile Logistics.

    You can find out more in the Test & Testimonials section of the EGNOS SDK webpages:
    http://www.egnos-portal.eu/developer...d-testimonials

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hi,
    I hope these info can be useful for you and you already enjoy working with the EGNOS SDK!
    Did you know that the R&D functionality of the SDK proposes innovative ways of computing a position by deviating from the EGNOS standard specifications, to try to get further improved accuracy? Check out the “R&D” sections among the functionalities of the EGNOS SDK.
    Indeed, the features and applications of the EGNOS SDK are too many to be described in short… If you want the full picture, we suggest to take a look to the technical details behind the development of the EGNOS SDK v3 (EGNOS Corrections, detailed functionalities, etc.) at the following link:
    http://www.egnos-portal.eu/developer...ties-egnos-sdk.

    As always, please refer to this thread for any question and comment!
    Take care
    Leonardo

    Re: Egnos SDK new release

    Hello Leocard,
    I am a newbie at EGNOS System. I was wondering something about EDAS.
    We have already GPS modules on some Vehicles and geospatial datum are coming to our system. The datum ( lat and long ), we want to accuracy on EGNOS. Can we do?
    If we does, there is need to access a service on EGNOS. Right? Using .Net SDK, How to send GPS data to EGNOS server?

    Thanks.


    Best regards.
