They showed the first experiment that allowed them to be among the first in the world able to receiving signals transmitted from satellites of the Galileo system, the satellite navigation system under development by the European Commission.

The researchers of the Microsoft Innovation Center (MIC), a joint group between ISMB and Microsoft, showed a prototype developed in the project Golden-ICE, which consists of an intelligent system able to process the EGNOS signal for the efficient management and control of salt spreaders and snowplows. This system is able to optimize the operation of "winter-maintenance ', reducing by 30% the salt spread, and consequently the environmental impact
