Per la prima volta al volante del prototipo della Settima Generazione di Corvette

ROMA, December 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

La Corvette 2014 camuffata disponibile per Gran Turismo®5, scaricabile gratuitamente su PlayStation® Store

Quando gli appassionati accenderanno la loro PlayStation®3 (PS3™), avranno la possibilità di entrare a far parte della storia di Corvette. Chevrolet e Sony Computer Entertainment America, LLC (SCEA) offrono infatti ai giocatori un'esperienza di guida assolutamente unica e innovativa consentendo di scaricare il prototipo camuffato della Corvette C7 per il popolarissimo gioco Gran Turismo®5 per PS3™.

Chevrolet e Polyphony Digital Inc., gli ideatori del pluripremiato Gran Turismo®, hanno lavorato di concerto per offrire un'esperienza di guida della massima autenticità al volante del prototipo della settima generazione di Corvette, attualmente nelle mani di pochissime persone in tutto il mondo.

Durante la creazione virtuale del prototipo di Corvette, si è dedicata una particolare attenzione ai dettagli più nascosti, dalle pieghe ed increspature del leggero camuffamento utilizzato per celare il nuovo design, fino alle caratteristiche di guida, che al momento sono in fase di definizione e perfezionamento, a poco tempo dal debutto ufficiale della vettura previsto per gennaio.

"Fino a oggi solo i piloti più abili del team Corvette sono stati autorizzati a spingere al limite i prototipi su alcuni dei circuiti più impegnativi del mondo," ha dichiarato Chris Perry, Vice Presidente Chevrolet Global Marketing. "Grazie a questa eccezionale collaborazione con Gran Turismo, Chevrolet può offrire agli appassionati di auto sportive la possibilità di vivere per la prima volta un'esperienza di guida esclusiva."

Tutte le sei generazioni precedenti di Corvette sono state a disposizione dei giocatori di Gran Turismo fin dalla prima versione del gioco e il modello Chevrolet resta uno dei preferiti per gareggiare. Il prototipo camuffato della Corvette C7 è disponibile fin da subito per il download dal PlayStation® Store accessibile dalla PlayStation®3, senza costi aggiuntivi, e può essere guidato su alcuni dei circuiti più famosi del mondo, tra cui l'International Speedway di Daytona e il famigerato Nürburgring - uno dei circuiti utilizzati per valutare le caratteristiche dinamiche della nuova Corvette.

"Gran Turismo ha potuto disporre di molte anteprime e siamo molto felici di collaborare con Chevrolet per portare il primo prototipo Chevrolet di sempre nel simulatore di guida," ha dichiarato Kazunori Yamauchi, Presidente di Polyphony Digital Inc. "Noi stessi siamo appassionati di automobili e ci entusiasma offrire ai giocatori questa possibilità straordinaria di guidare la settima generazione di Corvette, altrimenti irrealizzabile."

La serie Gran Turismo ha venduto oltre 67 milioni di copie dalla prima edizione e resta il gioco esclusivo per PlayStation più venduto di tutti i tempi.

Chevrolet presenterà la Corvette 2014 domenica 13 gennaio 2013. Per ulteriori informazioni e contenuti video, visitate http://www.one13thirteen.com.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...
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, discussed 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 t...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile devices as well as laptops and desktops using a visual drag-and-drop application – and eForms-buildi...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data. This approach, commonly referred to as the "Internet of Things" (IoT), enables businesses to use real-time data from all sorts of things including machines, devices and sensors to make better decisions, improve customer service, and lower the risk in the creation of new revenue opportunities. In his General Session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, discuss the real benefits to focus on, how to understand the requirements of a successful solution, the flow of ...
