Service connecté en temps réel, INRIX Parking va bien au-delà des indications de points d'intérêt (POI) statiques. Il indique les tarifs horaires des parkings, le nombre de places disponibles en temps réel ainsi que des informations détaillées concernant l'emplacement. Le tout est intégré à une base de données constamment actualisée et en perpétuelle croissance recensant les parkings d'Amérique du Nord et de 36 pays d'Europe.

« INRIX connecte la voiture aux applications et services nécessaires pour contribuer à faire disparaître les bouchon à l'avenir », a déclaré Bryan Mistele, P-DG d'INRIX. « En permettant aux utilisateurs de trouver facilement une place de parking, nous leur faisons bénéficier d'un service qui concourt à fluidifier les routes ».

Le fabricant Kenwood sera le premier à embarquer le service INRIX Parking dans ses nouveaux récepteurs à lecteur DVD intégrés pour la voiture – les Excelon DNN990HD et DNN770HD – qui seront présentés sur le salon CES. Ils sont les premiers du marché à intégrer la technologie Wi-Fi en utilisant les services cloud de Kenwood. Cela leur permet de proposer de l'info-trafic actualisé chaque minute de même que des informations sur les parkings, le prix du carburant dans les stations-service et les conditions météo. Ces données, précieuses, font économiser aux conducteurs du temps, de l'argent et leur épargnent du stress quels que soient leurs trajets.

Selon des estimations d'experts, 30 % des bouchons dans les agglomérations sont imputables au temps que passent les conducteurs à chercher une place de stationnement. Suite à une enquête réalisée par IBM auprès de conducteurs dans 20 villes du monde, il est apparu que près de six conducteurs sur 10 ont déjà renoncé à chercher une place de parking au moins une fois. Les conducteurs passent en moyenne près de 20 minutes à chercher à se garer dans des zones très convoitées[1].  

INRIX Parking résout ce problème : les conducteurs repèrent en un clin d'œil le point de stationnement le plus pratique en fonction de leur position géographique et suivent les instructions jusqu'à son point d'accès. La base de données INRIX recense plus de 18000 parkings en Amérique du Nord et 42000 en Europe. Ces informations, accessibles en voiture ou sur un appareil mobile, sont communiquées par les fournisseurs leaders ParkMe et Parkopedia.  

« Nous nous sommes ravis de faire équipe avec INRIX pour offrir aux conducteurs un service de parking digne de ce nom en Amérique du Nord », a déclaré Sam Friedman, DG et fondateur de ParkMe. « Cette annonce s'inscrit au cœur de notre politique visant à faciliter le stationnement partout ».

Eugene Tsyrklevich, DG de Parkopedia, complète : « Avec cette nouvelle ère du véhicule connecté, le fait que le conducteur accède à des informations dynamiques sur les points de stationnement n'est pas un luxe, c'est un impératif. Nous nous réjouissons de travailler avec INRIX autour de services haut de gamme à destination des constructeurs automobiles. »

INRIX a également réalisé d'autres annonces relatives à de nouveaux produits, services et clients faites lors du CES. Les voici en détail :

  • Services d'info-trafic haut de gamme en Chine. INRIX a ouvert un bureau à Pékin dans le cadre d'un partenariat avec CenNavi, le plus grand fournisseur de services d'info-trafic en Chine. Ils travaillent ensemble sur de nouveaux services d'info-trafic en temps réel avec historique et prévisions des conditions de circulation dans 28 métropoles chinoises. Cette collaboration va tirer parti des atouts majeurs d'INRIX – sa plate-forme sophistiquée d'info-trafic, sa connaissance des marchés verticaux et ses technologies de services connectés – et de CenNavi – ses technologies d'info-trafic en temps réel, sa grande connaissance du marché chinois et les liens qu'il a tissés avec des constructeurs automobiles. Ce partenariat permettra de promouvoir leurs services d'info-trafic haut de gamme et des applications et statistiques relatives aux conditions de circulation, et d'aider les clients – constructeurs, organismes publics, fournisseurs d'applications mobiles, opérateurs mobiles et médias – à améliorer la mobilité des conducteurs sur l'un des marchés qui connaît la croissance la plus rapide de son parc automobile, le plus grand du monde.

« Nous nous réjouissons de travailler avec INRIX en mettant en commun nos expertises, dans le but de venir à bout de l'un des problèmes majeurs de la Chine », a déclaré Haijun Tao, président de CenNavi. « S'attacher à le résoudre va créer des opportunités d'envergure sur le marché, en fournissant des services et applications d'info-trafic qualitatifs aux constructeurs, aux éditeurs d'applications de mobiles et aux municipalités, avec pour effet d'améliorer les déplacements en Chine. »

  • Nouvelle application INRIX Traffic pour iPhone et Android. INRIX Traffic aide les conducteurs à éviter les embouteillages – ils ont perdu jusqu'à 80 heures l'an passé dans le monde dans les métropoles disposant des axes routiers les plus saturés[2]. La dernière version d'INRIX Traffic intègre les nouvelles fonctionnalités suivantes :
    • Glance n' Go : la circulation sera-t-elle plus fluide ou pire que d'habitude cet après-midi ? INRIX Traffic vous livre la précieuse information pour un jour et une heure donnés. Le conducteur visualise immédiatement les zones difficiles sur son trajet, permettant de connaître son temps de retard ou de chercher un meilleur parcours le cas échéant, avant qu'il ne soit trop tard en étant pris au piège.
    • Alertes bouchons via les réseaux sociaux : grâce à une intégration à Facebook, Twitter, et à la possibilité d'alertes par SMS et mail, les conducteurs peuvent prévenir leurs amis et leur famille des retards éventuels à prévoir, des accidents et autres événements imprévus sur un parcours donné.  
    • INRIX Departure Times : plus besoin d'évaluer le temps qu'il faudra pour arriver à destination ou l'heure à laquelle il vaut mieux partir. INRIX Traffic prend en compte les retards sur le trajet pour indiquer la meilleure heure de départ, et vous permet d'en informer vos amis et votre famille via l'envoi de SMS ou d'un mail.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
