AutoNavi has developed a navigation app called Gaode, which is one of the first apps to provide drivers with AR navigation. Using the camera phone, Gaode looks at the road ahead and displays the relevant information, including navigation instructions, highlights signs and issues warnings all in real time.
The new AR feature recognizes objects in the surrounding environment, including passing vehicles, pedestrians, lane lines, traffic signs and traffic lights, according to the company. The feature also has driving safety assistance, which offers vehicle distance monitoring and warnings for things ahead like potential collisions, traffic lights and pedestrians.
GeoSpace Labs has announced the general availability of its new Fleet Commander cloud back office platform. It provides j1939 and j1708 data updates every 15 seconds to back-end office users, completely visualized and geospatially encoded. This will mean a fleet manager can make decisions in PERFECT REAL TIME using knowledge of every aspect of a nationally distributed fleet of vehicles and driver hours of service legal requirements including over 100 onboard computer parameters (this is more realtime decision making data provided faster than most air traffic controllers have available). Further, the historical data streams are stored in cloud data array for deep analytics going back 6 months.
The new Fleet Commander platform also provides real-time weather data fully integrated into the fleet geospatial views, so multiple data points are available when dispatching. This includes the exact operating status of power units and associated trailers and chassis, any reported suspect codes from the power unit engines onboard computer, the drivers exact working status like how many hours driven and how many hours legally remaining to drive, the fuel status of the vehicle, weather conditions for the entire trip, and customer geospatial coordinates. https://geospacelabs.com
DPL Telematics has announced the release of the AssetView Max Tracking System. It is an advanced solution for wireless monitoring and remote tracking of any powered or unpowered asset to improve logistics, manage inventory and curb theft. The long lasting, portable GPS unit is completely self-contained and may be hidden on any asset, installing in seconds. Its proprietary TruTrace Adaptive Tracking technology increases its reporting frequency when movement is detected and automatically reduces it when stationary. http://www.dpltel.com
Semtech Corporation has collaborated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and TensorIoT to simplify Internet of Things (IoT) solution development by offering Asset Tracking and Smart Building Kits that integrate Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol with AWS IoT services. Systems Integrators and Enterprises are now able to use AWS IoT services to accelerate the pilot-toproduction lifecycle for their digital transformation applications, while leveraging key AWS native services, such as AWS IoT Core, Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, Amazon CloudFront, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Amazon DynamoDB. The new Asset Tracking and Smart Building Kits are the first vertical product offerings based on the LoRaWAN protocol built using AWS IoT Core and a serverless architecture. In combination, these offerings pave the way for other industry verticals such as utilities, smart home, smart community, and smart healthcare to provide similar solutions that benefit from long range, low power IoT capabilities that LoRaWAN provides. www.tensoriot.com, www.semtech.com
