Analysis of the Seven Development Trends of Intelligent Transportation Vehicle Navigation in 2014

In recent years, China’s total car sales and private car purchases have increased year by year. With the continuous improvement of people’s living standards, cars have gradually entered the family and become a necessity for life. Experts estimate that the growth rate of cars will increase significantly in the next few years. As an automotive electronic product GPS system, its huge market potential and immeasurable development prospects have made major electrical industry giants see business opportunities and have turned their attention to the automotive industry.
Although the navigation industry is currently facing various problems, compared with other countries in the world, whether it is the absolute value of car sales or the growth rate, China is far away**. Therefore, China’s car navigation market will definitely flourish in the future. However, the key is where is the development road? The following author analyzes the seven major development trends of navigation in the future for everyone.
One-click navigation development
Encyclopedia’s description of one-key navigation is, “Connect to the artificial seat, voice the desired destination, confirm that the destination is correct, send the destination address code to the user terminal, and automatically generate the navigation route.” This function was launched in 2008. There is a portable navigation factory implementation, based on GPRS technology, to send the address code to the customer’s navigator.
It is not difficult to see that one-click navigation needs to be communicated through manual agents, and there are often some inconsistencies in communication. Although the manual input of the query address is solved, the communication time is long and the agent’s labor cost is relatively high. In order to maintain the operating costs of the call center, each user is charged more than 100 yuan per month.
Voice-activated navigation development
In order to achieve differentiation, some navigation factories have added voice recognition software modules inside the machine, and through voice commands, it is possible to control the car without looking at the car screen. But this kind of technology has the problem: If there is no back-end database system, the voice analysis ability may only recognize a dozen fixed commands. Moreover, voice-activated navigation has requirements for accents and environmental background sounds. However, if the voice recognition is completed by the back-end cloud computer after the Internet of Vehicles, the command recognition rate will be greatly improved.
Internet of Vehicles Application
Internet of Vehicles means that the navigator changes the state of the car’s single machine through 3G Internet devices or WIFI interconnection, so as to obtain information and communicate online. At present, the tariff of 3G wireless communication is the bottleneck restricting the development: the current service carrier of the Internet of Vehicles must pass through the operation background. The problems are: **, the current operation background provides services without rigid demand; second, Chinese users are not accustomed to charging. When the service costs money, users would rather not use it; third, the current back-end projects have very poor experience.
Mobile sync application
Mobile phone synchronization (MirrorLink) means that the mobile phone and the navigation vehicle can be synchronized wirelessly through software to realize the mirroring control of the mobile phone and the vehicle. The starting point of mobile phone synchronization is to weaken the function of the navigation car and enlarge the dominance of the mobile phone. The goal is to reduce the number of repairs and dismantling of cars and machines; second, to share mobile phone traffic charges. But doing so is precisely to cut your feet and fit your feet, and will obliterate the on-board personality of the navigation vehicle. At present, due to the backwardness of the WINCE system, the navigation car machine has poor performance in the Internet of Vehicles, which has clearly shown its shortcomings.
Car navigation to high-end development
In the navigation market, in addition to portable navigation, there are more professional car navigation. If subdivided, car navigation can be divided into front-mounted navigation and rear-mounted navigation. The former generally refers to the original factory navigation, while the latter is the car navigation that consumers choose to install at 4S stores or auto boutiques.
Compared with portable navigation, car navigation has advantages that the former and mobile navigation software can’t match. “The current car navigation is actually not just a single navigation function, it can even be said that navigation is just one of the functions.” Mr. Lin, an after-sales service staff member of the Guangzhou Automobile Honda 4S store, told the author that using mobile navigation software or buying on JD.com or Taobao In fact, the navigation in the navigation market is only a low-end product. The free navigation of Baidu and AutoNavi does not have an impact on the entire navigation market.
It is understood that, from the previous relatively single navigation function plus the first generation of car navigation with audio and video, radio and other functions, today’s car navigation has begun to develop in the direction of multi-function and high-end. Such as wireless Bluetooth transmission, SD card, car DVD, voice control, etc., are already very popular functions. At the 9th International Automobile Aftermarket Brand Exhibition held in Guangzhou in September, major car navigation manufacturers have already developed car navigation in the direction of intelligence and car networking. In addition to the continuous addition of trendy features such as non-disc large-capacity storage, large resolution, and multi-touch, relying on the Internet has become a common trend for major brands.
Car navigation touch screen is favored
For car GPS navigators, touch control has become a standard configuration, but due to the driving environment, strong outdoor light, and high temperature, the touch sensitivity of resistive or capacitive car navigators’ touch screens is often disturbed. So what is the future development trend of in-vehicle navigation touch screen technology? The answer is: In-car infrared touch screen products, which use cutting-edge infrared technology, bring a new touch of touch, and arouse enthusiastic attention from the media industry and consumers.
There are opinions that infrared technology is the mainstream development trend of car navigation touch screen products. I can’t help thinking, when will this mainstream day be? The development of touch screen technology has been widely used in the market, mainly including resistive technology touch screens, capacitive technology touch screens, and infrared technology touch screens. The resistive screen will drift after a long time, and it is very laborious to calibrate it. When there is no static electricity in the hand, the capacitive screen cannot be manipulated. But these phenomena are not pressured by the infrared screen.
First, the infrared touch screen has a high light transmittance: Compared with the display with capacitive and resistive touch screens, the screen color is fuller, the contrast is good, and the user’s visual comfort is improved; second, the infrared touch screen does not require touch pressure, wear gloves It can also be operated freely. Multi-touch *Up to 10 points, you can touch whatever you use. The visibility in daylight is high, the power consumption is low, and the price is moderate. Compared with the capacitive screen and the resistive screen, the cost performance is very high. Third, the working and storage temperature meets the various harsh working conditions of the vehicle. In extremely cold and hot areas, users can control the running clouds and water, and draw as they please; and the response is high-speed and accurate. The on-site experience is indeed like this, and it feels smooth and fast, compared with resistance. The screen and the capacitive screen have a winning posture. Fourth, the infrared touch screen is anti-scaling and waterproof. Dirt less than 0.6mm works normally, even if water is sprinkled on the surface of the infrared screen, just a simple wipe, it can work normally, it will not be affected at all.
In summary, the infrared screen is very cost-effective, and all functions are very brilliant. It is inevitable to become a mainstream product in the future, but there is still no time to determine how long the product will become mature and popular.
