Abstract— For the introduction of satellite based localisation regarding safety related applications in transportation, the knowledge on the accuracy of the localisation system as well as its availability and reliability is very important. For the usage of those applications in the regular operation, some safety evaluations are required from the respective safety authority. These two aspects of system and application development are discussed for the field of ground transportation. According to this recent approaches for each one are presented using concepts of sensor data fusion and formal ontologies. Keywords- Road transport, Satellite Navigation, Precision measurement
