Using Space Tech To Improve Last Mile Deliveries
About GNSS & SiReNT
The Global Satellite Navigation System (GNSS) is used ubiquitously as the de-facto positioning enabler in many outdoors applications that require location-based geospatial data. From location-based gaming to food and delivery applications, GNSS is used each time the mobile application is launched without the user needing to do anything about it.
SiReNT is an initiative by the Singapore Land Authority to support your real-time high precision Positioning, Navigation and Tracking (PNT) as well as Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) needs. SiReNT is also developed with differential technologies which improves accuracy and reliability for global navigation.
Design an autonomous last-mile delivery system enabled by SiReNT.
Teams will have to consider the user-friendliness of their design and feasibility of implementation. This challenge also aims to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration. Teams are encouraged to be diverse and work together to create a workable solution.
The solution shall include:
- Autonomous delivery platform(s) for last-mile delivery
- Consolidated goods delivery to the final destination
- Overcome challenges of existing buildings that are not robot friendly
- Friendly and interactive design

We are glad that the inaugural GNSS Innovation Challenge was successfully organised in 2021. The teams demonstrated immense dedication and commitment to learn about and to apply SiReNT precise GNSS with their solutions. The team from SSTL provided professional support and that ensured the smooth running of the challenge and its related activities. We are looking forward eagerly to the second edition in 2022.
- I really like that this challenge had little restriction on the ideas that we can come up with, which allowed us to explore more ways to incorporate the GNSS into any wearable products that we can think of. I also enjoyed the sharing from the other groups as many of the participant's products were very innovative and cool. Their products and presentation styles left a very lasting impact on me. In addition, I think the mentoring process was also very useful as we were able to learn directly from experts, giving us a deeper understanding on this technology.
It was a very good learning experience as I got to do in-depth research about GNSS and SiREnT.
