Garmin® heads to CES with a new scalable infotainment platform

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 5 gennaio 2018

GarminGarmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), will be introducing its scalable infotainment platform for Automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The platform uses the Intel Atom® quad core x7 or Intel Atom® dual core x5 (Apollo Lake) processor and includes multiple premium industry-firsts for consumers like wireless rear-seat navigation, comprehensive weather forecasts along a route, Foursquare’s Location Intelligence and Places Database, and unique integration of Amazon’s cloud-based Alexa voice service. A brief highlight video showing the infotainment system can be viewed here.
“Garmin’s scalable infotainment platform offers a level of performance and design that consumers expect from consumer electronics but have never seen in OEM infotainment,” said Kip Dondlinger, Garmin automotive OEM manager of product and user experience. “The new platform provides adaptable hardware and software for infotainment head units that suit specific OEM needs at the mid- and high-end levels of the market.”Driving in bad weather can be a common concern for consumers. To help bring peace of mind, Garmin utilizes predictive routing algorithms that work with AccuWeather Go™ powered by MinuteCast® technology to display the weather conditions that can be expected along any given route. Thanks to this joint effort between Garmin and AccuWeather, the scalable infotainment platform offers the first navigation system to provide comprehensive minute-by-minute weather forecasts with Superior Accuracy™ to pinpoint exact routes.The Garmin scalable infotainment platform takes Alexa integration in the vehicle to a new level. Alexa works directly with the on-board navigation and media player software established by Garmin – which means no smartphones or apps required. Consumers can easily select their destination with the Alexa hands-free voice service and then have it automatically synced to turn-by-turn navigation from Garmin. What’s more, consumers can ask Alexa questions and receive both audio and on-screen responses; play music through the head unit’s media player; control home automation while traveling on the road; and access hundreds of other Alexa skills from the vehicle’s head unit.In addition, Garmin also uses the infotainment platform for Wireless Rear Seat Navigation and Entertainment. Tablets or smartphones – Apple or Android – will have access to the head unit’s mapping and full navigation functionality streaming over Wi-Fi® to the rear seat. Rear seat passengers will be able to see the vehicle’s route, search points of interest, and even send destinations to the head unit. Users can also stream media content from the infotainment system to their device via Wi-Fi, making the vehicle an entertainment hub that mimics the experience seen on commercial airliners.The versatile platform includes on-board and connected Foursquare points of interest (POI) integration, a feature that was recently launched by Garmin as a factory-installed navigation solution. With Foursquare’s Places Database that powers 125,000+ developers including Uber, Twitter, Samsung and Snapchat, Foursquare adds more POIs in the categories of Food and Drink, Lodging, and Entertainment which are the most searched categories in a car.During CES, the infotainment platform will be installed in a new demonstration vehicle with an all-digital Garmin instrument cluster with full-screen moving maps. In this vehicle, Garmin will showcase the platform in conjunction with “Lenexa” HMI (human machine interface). As shown in the 2017 concept, the Lenexa HMI’s unique knob and display design makes frequently used audio and smartphone features more easily accessible through tactile controls. For decades, Garmin has pioneered new GPS navigation and wireless devices and applications that are designed for people who live an active lifestyle. Garmin serves five primary business units, including automotive, aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor recreation. (photo: garmin)

Sicurezza in montagna

Cartografia Topografica Garmin: Italia Topografica

L’alpinismo è una attività in forte incremento nel panorama dell’outdoor, perché un crescente numero di appassionati si avvicina al mondo della montagna, attratti dalla sfida che solo il “verticale” è in grado di offrire. Se da una parte tutto ciò rappresenta un aspetto positivo delle attività in quota, dall’altra richiede da parte degli Enti preposti un pres idio costante della montagna, anche e soprattutto a fronte della crescita proporzionale degli incidenti. E a monitorare e intervenire in caso di necessità sono loro, gli angeli della montagna, gli operatori del Corpo Nazionale Soccorso Alpino e Speleologico, sinteticamente racchiusi nella sigla CNSAS. Da sempre istituzione riconosciuta, il Soccorso Alpino è tra i primi “utenti” a impiegare le nuove tecnologie in grado di contribuire al salvataggio di vite umane, ed è per questo che dopo anni di collaborazioni è stata ufficialmente formalizzata la partnership tra il CNSAS e Garmin, l’azienda leader nella navigazione satellitare. L’obiettivo reciproco del protocollo d’intesa è divulgare e diffondere la cultura della montagna e di tutte le attività ad essa correlate incrementando, tramite l’utilizzo degli strumenti GPS di Garmin, le indispensabili condizioni di sicurezza che sono richieste durante gli spostamenti su terreni naturali in alta quota. Sotto il profilo pratico, Garmin Italia supporterà la Scuola Nazionale Direttori Operazioni di Soccorso fornendo know-how tecnologico per i propri navigatori satellitari, fornendo formazione tecnica e strumentazione GPS per la gestione dei Corsi operati dalla Scuola. Inoltre Garmin realizzerà con cadenza annuale un Corso di Alta Specializzazione per i Tecnici di Ricerca (TeR) ed i Coordinatori Operazioni di Ricerca (COR), in cui verranno illustrate le innovazioni tecnologiche degli strumenti della gamma dei prodotti Garmin.
Una partnership che va oltre la semplice collaborazione, poiché Garmin Italia fornirà al personale della Commissione Ricerca del CNSAS i nuovi prodotti che la casa madre immetterà sul mercato, al fine di consentire da parte dei tecnici del CNSAS l’effettuazione di test e prove sul campo, volti a stabilire il campo d’azione dei nuovi prodotti in base agli scopi istituzionali del CNSAS. Ora anche la montagna è un po’ più sicura
