CoPilot® transforme les Windows Phone 8 en de puissants systèmes de navigation GPS

BARCELONE, Espagne, le 24 février 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ALK Technologies, leader mondial des solutions GPS mobiles a le plaisir d'annoncer que son application de navigation CoPilot® Live pour smartphones et tablettes - maintes fois primée - sera bientôt disponible pour Windows Phone 8 et Windows 8.

Grâce à CoPilot, les smartphones sous Windows Phone 8 et les appareils sous Windows 8 disposeront de fonctionnalités de navigation très poussées. Solution concurrente des GPS automobiles traditionnels, CoPilot offre une multitude de fonctionnalités très avancées, à commencer par des flèches indiquant la voie à emprunter à l'approche d'un changement de direction, le tout avec affichage des intersections ClearTurn™.

Autre possibilité intéressante : la planification des trajets et l'accès à des cartes routières consultables sans connexion internet. CoPilot propose également un ensemble de services en temps réel « Live » tels qu'ActiveTraffic™, Yelp, Wikipedia et le moteur Google Search, le tout pour que le conducteur reste informé tout au long du trajet.

« Nous sommes des adeptes de longue date des solutions mobiles de Microsoft », déclare David Quin, responsable des applications grand public d'ALK Technologies. « CoPilot a été créé au départ pour Pocket PC de Microsoft, offrant pour la première fois des fonctions de GPS dans Windows Mobile. Nous sommes donc ravis d'annoncer l'arrivée d'une nouvelle application conçue pour Windows Phone 8 et Windows 8. Le portfolio d'appareils mobiles sous Windows est en constante expansion, et ils s'imposent comme concurrents des appareils sous Android et iOS. Windows est une plate-forme parfaite pour une expérience de navigation conviviale avec CoPilot, avec toutes les fonctionnalités existantes. »

« Windows Phone s'accompagne de tout un écosystème d'applications remarquables, dont certaines très renommées. C'est le cas de CoPilot qui permet aux détenteurs de smartphones de profiter d'un appareil réellement personnalisé », explique Todd Brix, directeur général en charge des applications Windows Phone au sein de Microsoft « CoPilot est un parfait exemple des applications très complètes disponibles sur la plate-forme de téléchargement Windows Phone Store, applications clés pour tirer pleinement parti de son appareil. »

Disponibilité : l'application CoPilot sera disponible sur le Windows Phone Store et le Windows Store au cours de l'été 2013, le tout dans trois versions. La première, « CoPilot Premium », est une application payante qui offre la navigation à l'intersection de rue près, couplée au service ActiveTrafficä offert pendant 12 mois. « 'CoPilot GPS » est quant à elle une application gratuite de planification de voyage et de cartographie. Enfin, « CoPilot Truck » est dédiée aux chauffeurs routiers et embarque des fonctionnalités spécifiques. Les tarifs seront en ligne avec ceux des applications CoPilot existantes pour iOS et Android.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
