Telemetria Launches New Telematics Product to Transform Driving Experience
Advanced Telematics Technology Platform Uses Intel® AtomÃ¢“¢ Processor for Trial with European Mobile Carrier
Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) January 6, 2011
Telemetria, a leader in transforming driver experience with advanced Telematics solutions, announced today at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that it has entered a partnership with a Tier-1 Mobile Carrier to trial its new Telematics product in Europe. The new product is based on its DashTop technology platform. This design win builds upon on a pilot project last year with Clearwire in the US.
“The deployment of 4G is a vector of growth for the smart and connected car,” explains Kaveh Hushyar, CEO of Telemetria. “4G was developed with vehicular applications in mind so it is not a surprise that the strong activity in 4G is one of the driving forces behind the demand for our DashTop technology.”
Telemetria has been working closely with Intel and other local industry partners like Sunman Engineering to deliver the most advanced Telematics technology platform for vehicles. The robust architecture is based on the Intel® AtomÃ¢“¢ processor, allowing it to run multiple applications at the same time. Its software platform supports a rich set of features spanning infotainment, efficiency, safety, and security.
“As consumers want to bring their digital lifestyle into the vehicle, the challenge for the industry is how to do this in a compelling, safe and quick manner”, said Phil Ames, Director of In-vehicle Infotainment, Embedded and Communications Group, Intel Corporation. “The Intel® AtomÃ¢“¢ processor provides the technology foundation for customers like Telemetria to more quickly address this challenge and offer more intelligent and connected applications in their in-vehicle infotainment systems.”
By smartly connecting the car and its sensors to the outside world via 3G/4G and Wifi, Telemetria’s solution improves dramatically the consumer’s lifestyle and safety. It features always-on internet and cell phone connections, GPS navigation, and a multi-media player that can be activated by voice.
DashTop also has a seven-inch touch-screen interface. Larger than a smart phone and smaller than a tablet computer, the compact form factor of DashTop is perfectly adapted for in-dash configuration. The solution is also available in a portable version for the aftermarket. Telemetria provides the experience of a high-end car, and beyond, to the majority of drivers who cannot afford a new vehicle.
Whether it is to assist aging adults with cost-effective location-based services or to provide business people a hands-free office-quality experience on the road, DashTop transforms the driving experience and extends the smart and connected life-style into cars.
Prior to joining Telemetria, Kaveh Hushyar was Senior Vice President at AT&T where he oversaw the design and deployment of the quadruple-play network that carries the iPhone traffic today. “We are still in the infancy of the smart and connected car environment. Our driving experience is going to be transformed in the next few years as products like ours enter the market.” Telemetria is also in discussion with other partners to bring its life-style solution to market.
