INRIX Parking ist ein Service mit Echtzeitinformationen und geht über statische Ziele und Sehenswürdigkeiten hinaus. Der Dienst zeigt Park-Tarife, die Zahl der verfügbaren Plätze und detaillierte Ortsinformationen. Zudem wird die Datenbank kontinuierlich mit Informationen über Parkhäuser und Parkplätze in Nord-Amerika und 36 weiteren Ländern in ganz Europa erweitert und auf den neuesten Stand gebracht.

„INRIX verbindet das Auto mit Apps und Diensten für eine nachhaltigere und staufreiere Zukunft", sagt Bryan Mistele, Präsident und CEO von INRIX. „Wir helfen Fahrern, leichter einen Parkplatz zu finden und reduzieren so Verkehrsstaus – eine Erleichterung für jedermann."

Experten gehen davon aus, dass Parkplatz-suchende Autofahrer 30 Prozent der städtischen Verkehrsstaus verursachen. Eine Studie von IBM über Pendler in 20 internationalen Städten bestätigt, dass sechs von zehn Fahrern die Suche nach einem Parkplatz mindestens schon einmal aufgegeben haben oder mindestens 20 Minuten nach einem Parkplatz gesucht haben.[i] INRIX Parking geht auf dieses Problem ein und bietet Tarif- und Verfügbarkeitsinformationen, um Fahrer zur Einfahrt in den Parkplatz zu navigieren, der ihrem Ziel am nächsten liegt.

Kenwood ist das erste Unternehmen, das INRIX Parking in seine beiden neuen fest installierten DVD-Entertainment-Receiver integriert, die auf der CES vorstellt werden. Es sind die ersten Empfangsgeräte der Branche mit eingebauter WiFi-Kommunikation über die Kenwood Cloud. INRIX bietet den Besitzern der Excelon DNN990HD und DNN770HD Receiver topaktuelle Informationen zu Verkehr, Parkmöglichkeiten, Kraftstoff und Wetter, so dass Autofahrer Zeit, Sprit und Frustration sparen.

Die INRIX Parking Datenbank umfasst mehr als 18.000 Parkplätze in Nordamerika und 42.000 in europäischen Ländern, die für die Verwendung im Auto und von unterwegs aus von den führenden Anbietern ParkMe und Parkopedia bezogen wurden.

„In der Ära des Connected Car ist der Zugang zu dynamischen Parkinformationen eine Notwendigkeit", bestätigt auch der CEO von Parkopedia, Eugene Tsyrklevich. „Wir freuen uns, mit INRIX arbeiten, um hochwertige Dienstleistungen für Automobilhersteller bieten."

„Wir freuen uns darauf, mit INRIX zusammenzuarbeiten und Fahrern in Nord-Amerika einen Park-Service anzubieten", sagt Sam Friedmann, CEO und Gründer von ParkMe. „Diese Kooperation unterstreicht unsere Mission, Parken überall einfacher und komfortabler zu machen."

Weitere neue INRIX Produkte, Dienste und Kunden, die auf der CES bekannt gegeben wurden, sind:

„Wir freuen uns darauf, mit INRIX zusammenzuarbeiten und die Stärken beider Seiten einzubringen, um eine der größten Herausforderungen Chinas zu lösen", sagt Haijun Tao, Präsident von CenNavi. „Die Verbesserung der urbanen Mobilität stellt für uns die beträchtliche Marktchance dar, Autoherstellern, Anbietern von mobilen Navigations-Apps und Stadtverwaltungen hochqualitative Verkehrsinformationen und Anwendungen zu liefern, damit die Mobilität für jedermann in China verbesset werden kann."

  • Neue INRIX Traffic App für iPhone und Android. Autofahrer verschwendeten im vergangenen Jahr bis zu 80 Stunden in den verkehrsreichsten Städten weltweit[ii]. Neue nützliche Funktionen von INRIX Traffic helfen dabei, die Kosten , die durch Verkehrsstilltand entstehen, zu senken:
    • Glance n' Go: INRIX Traffic zeigt übersichtlichan, ob der Verkehr zu einer bestimmten Zeit oder an einem Wochentag besser oder schlechter fließt als üblich. Autofahrer sehen sofort, wo Gefahren auf ihrem Weg liegen. So können sie erhebliche Verzögerungen und schnellere Routen zu ihrem Ziel erkennen, bevor es zu spät ist.
    • Social Network Traffic Alerts: Dank der Integration von Facebook, Twitter, SMS und E-Mail können Fahrer ihrem sozialen Netzwerk und weiteren INRIX Traffic Nutzern Unfälle, Baustellen und andere Gründe für Verkehrsverzögerungen melden, damit diese Verkehrsstaus zu vermeiden.
    • INRIX Departure Times: Verursacht ein Unfall ernsthafte Verzögerungen auf dem Heimweg? Ist es besser, jetzt das Büro zu verlassen oder zu bleiben und noch ein paar Dinge zu erledigen? INRIX Traffic gibt Aufschluss über die beste Abfahrtszeit und hilft, pünktlich am Ziel anzukommen. INRIX Traffic ermöglicht es zudem, Freunden und der Familie die genaue Ankunftszeit via SMS oder E-Mail mitzuteilen.

Building low-cost wearable devices can enhance the quality of our lives. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Sai Yamanoor, Embedded Software Engineer at Altschool, provided an example of putting together a small keychain within a $50 budget that educates the user about the air quality in their surroundings. He also provided examples such as building a wearable device that provides transit or recreational information. He then reviewed the resources available to build wearable devices at home including open source hardware, the raw materials required and the options available to power s...
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 ...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a business application to multiple users (multi-tenancy). Docker, a container technology, was used to ...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
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.
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...
The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
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.
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) i...
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, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DragonGlass, an enterprise search platform, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. After eleven years of designing and building custom applications, OpenCrowd has launched DragonGlass, a cloud-based platform that enables the development of search-based applications. These are a new breed of applications that utilize a search index as their backbone for data retrieval. They can easily adapt to new data sets and provide access to both structured and unstruc...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
SYS-CON Events announced today that MetraTech, now part of Ericsson, has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9–11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York, NY. Ericsson is the driving force behind the Networked Society- a world leader in communications infrastructure, software and services. Some 40% of the world’s mobile traffic runs through networks Ericsson has supplied, serving more than 2.5 billion subscribers.
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 comprehe...
Buzzword alert: Microservices and IoT at a DevOps conference? What could possibly go wrong? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, the leading expert on architecting agility for the enterprise and president of Intellyx, panelists will peel away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly. At the very least, you'll have no problem fil...
