M3Asia Distribution Pte. Ltd. (“M3Asia”), recently launched the latest Navigation Software for GPS Personal Navigation Device (PND) from Papago! – Reality 7, powered by GEWI’s TIC software product.
Reality 7 is the latest Navigation Software from Maction Technologies Inc. (Trademark owners of Papago!) and is a follow on from the very successful X6 which is the best-selling Navigation Software for PNDs in Taiwan.
Twelve years ago TIC was first installed by one of the sixteen German State Police for the purpose of creating traffic event information to keep the public informed.
Over a period of six years, under independent purchasing authority, one German State Police agency after another purchased TIC. Today, TIC is used by all German State Police.
GEWI places a high value on continuing education and professional development to ensure that both the TIC product and our clients benefit from the very latest available technologies.
As part of this effort, GEWI developers Alexander Fust and Sven Wiesenmuller attended Microsoft’s Advanced Developers Conference held in Bonn, Germany.
Work zone safety is a concern all over the world, and GEWI is working with BMW and VZH, the Traffic Control Center in Hessen (Germany) on a project to increase safety in mobile and stationary work zones.
The project is called DIANA2 which demonstrates the Local Hazard Warning (LHW) capabilities of TPEG.
Sports and other event organizers have many logistical challenges to deal with, including providing traffic and other information to the event attendees.
These challenges also faced the organizers of the Formula 1? Grand Prix held in November in Abu Dhabi.
For the second year in a row, TIC provided the Grand Prix event organizers with a solution to not only collect, manage and distribute traffic information for the event, but also to easily manage many other data types.
Other web based solutions for entering traffic data often have significant limitations in performance or very basic features. With TIC Smart Client Remote, it’s a whole new ballgame!
All of the features of the TIC Smart Client Local are available to the user in the Remote version of the TIC Smart Client.
This means no additional training is required for users, and as new features and functionality are made available in TIC3, they are immediately available to both the TIC Smart Client Local and Remote applications simultaneously.
In Singapore, GEWI Asia Pacific, a subsidiary of German company GEWI Europe GmbH & Co. KG, provides real time traffic information directly to navigation devices and smart phones using data broadcasting over mobile internet and Fm radio channels. GEWI uses RDS-TMC (Radio Data Service Traffic Message Channel) to broadcast a constant stream of information which is received by the navigation device allowing the system to offer alternative routes based on the current traffic situation.
GEWI would like to thank everyone involved in hosting and attending our first ever North American Traffic Technologies Tour. Topics included technologies that are used around the world for location referencing and harmonization, data exchange between systems, next generation of real-time data for traffic navigation, and data exchange for connected vehicles/infrastructure projects. We had many requests from locations and attendees we were unable to honor, so please look for a follow-up webinar to be held in January 2011. If you’d like to receive notification of this event, register for the GEWI newsletter at www.gewi.com.
