Thinkware, better known as its brand name “iNavi,” has introduced a new navigator model embedded with the augmented reality technology. The new models allows the driver to view the actual image of the road on which the driver is driving and see a variety of traffic information on it.
The company said that it held a new product launch event in its main office in Seoul on the same day and unveiled the “iNavi X1” that combines augmented reality with advanced driving assistance system (ADAS).
The AR solution called “Extreme AR” within the system can provide real-like road images and route information. It comes with the ADAS functionality that includes the lane departure warning system. Until now ADAS has been usually reserved for high-priced import models.
With the new navigator model, motorists won’t have to worry about getting lost any longer thanks to its lane change forewarning system that tells the driver to change the lane well before making turns. It can also indicate major features of the road with different color schemes including slow-driving areas and camera surveillance intervals.
The iNavi X1 comes with other advanced features like “Extreme Air 3D,” the real 3D map, and “Drone View,” the feature providing aerial view of the road. Its telematics service “T-Link” encompasses 240,000 pieces of road link information. The iNavi X1 is scheduled to be launched on December 8, with its retail price not yet determined.
“With the iNavi X1 that embodies 17 years of technical know-how, we’d like to lead the navigator market in the New Year.”- Lee Heung-bok, President, Thinkware
