Telogis Adds Driver Assistance Data
Aliso Viejo-based Telogis, a provider of GPS fleet tracking, dispatch management, and navigation systems, said today that it has added new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) data from NAVTEQ into its platform. According to the firm, the addition of the data will allow application developers using its software to improve driver safety, fuel efficiency, and performance. Telogis explained that the new topographical data can help developers determine better travel routes, based on distance, height, slope, and curvature of roads, to calculate more fuel efficient routes; the data can also be used for adaptive cruise control, lane departure warnings, and other features for navigation and routing applications. The new data is part of Telogis GeoBase, the data and SDK product used by Telogis customers to build their own, routing and mapping applications.
