Matthias Defee, GEWI’s Worldwide Director of Customer Projects, will be speaking about advanced traffic technologies in two sessions at ITS World Congress, October 16-20th in Orlando, Florida.
GEWI and BMW have teamed up for a connected vehicle technology demonstration at the upcoming ITS World Congress in Orlando, FL this October 16-20th.
The demonstration features the collection of event and advice data with real-time location information from a roadwork vehicle. This is then processed by the TIC software and then the information is relayed to the driver of the BMW vehicle as a Local Hazard Warning (LHW) message on their navigation device.
GEWI’s Product Development team is always receiving innovative requests from existing and potential customers. Many of these requests become new product features which improve the TIC product for all of our customers. The latest new product feature is called “Relation”.
Six types of geographical relations can be analyzed by TIC which can be used to improve the speed, accuracy and quality of the traffic data capture and dissemination.
Recently, GEWI’s Product Developers put the finishing touches on new Weather features for TIC3.
TIC3 can now process “Weather Observation” data, “Weather Forecast” data and “Precipitation Radar” data.
By storing all weather data, GEWI customers can use the archived data to analyze whether traffic incidents were caused by weather conditions such as heavy rain.
GEWI attended the 19th Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) at Jakarta International Expo in Kemayoran in July 2011.
GEWI was there to support a customer, iQios Sejahtera who announced plans to launch their real-time traffic service by September 2011.
iQios, who specializes in GPS fleet tracking systems and GEWI have partnered to introduce the first traffic service for GPS navigation, car audio system and smart phones in Indonesia.
This service will be launched in September 2011 covering the Jakarta area with plans to cover Greater Jakarta in 2012. Moving forward, iQios plans to expand its coverage to Bandung and Surabaya in 2013.
Next generation navigation devices using the TPEG protocol have the capability of delivering a much richer data set to drivers, which should result in a safer driving experience.
One of those new data types which will alert drivers to road hazards ahead is LHW, Local Hazard Warning.
Over the past 15 years, the GEWI Product Development team has continuously improved the TIC product based on incorporating solutions based on global project requirements into the product.
TIC’s product features grow and are improved every week based on customer requests.
To ensure a high standard of quality in the product development process, GEWI held it’s 2011 Product Development workshop May 23 – 25th in Weimar, Thuringia, Germany.
Continuous improvement in the TIC product and customer service is GEWI’s constant goal.
Earlier this year both the Marketing & Sales teams and Product Development teams held their own workshops to improve processes in their respective areas.
In June, it was GEWI’s Customer Projects team who met at the ProArte Hotel in Berlin for two days of meetings focused on improving GEWI Customer Projects processes and the experience for GEWI customers.
