From mobile phones to surveying devices, GNSS is ubiquitous in everyday life. It is crucial for disaster management, emergency response, marine and land monitoring, fleet monitoring, etc. GNSS is a major component of PNT; however, PNT encompasses much more than navigational functions.
The finance sector benefits from PNT services, relying on accurate time synchronization for transactions and trading. The telecom sector also heavily relies on PNT – precise timing is essential for synchronizing networks and ensuring that signals arrive at their intended destination at the correct time. The critical infrastructure sectors rely heavily on PNT, meaning disruption would cause high costs, delays, or degradation of functions and services.
Geospatial World Forum 2024 shall host a one-day technology program, Generative AI – The Era of AI Shaping Us, to discuss a wide array of GNSS applications and PNT services, socioeconomic impact, and security issues around it.
