PTV Navigator for Android – now in Google Play

Dear all,

PTV was one of the first companies worldwide offering a navigation solution dedicated PTV_Navigator_Android_80x80pxto the needs of professional truck drivers. As the mass market for navigation developed, we assumed the strategy to be the most efficient navigation software for truckers, working with leading telematics and fleet management service providers. As PTV always offered pure software solution without any hardware led to the following situation:

  1. The mass market for navigation devices was conquered by large competitors.
  2. PTV Navigator successfully occupied the niche with professional fleet customers that connected their software with the navigator software and developed a Navigation-SDK – the PTV Navigator components – that allows customers to build their individual navigation solution from scratch.
  3. PTV Software was only available for partners, not for individuals.

Today, as specialised navigation hardware is more and more being replaced by multifunctional devices like smartphones and tablets, we took the play_storenext step. With PTV Navigator for Android available in the Google Play Store, our professional truck navigation solution – previously reserved for companies and large customers – can now be used by individuals, too.

Michael Hubschneider, Product Manager PTV Navigator: “Anyone who has their own fleet or drives a truck now has access to this reliable navigation solution.” The full version can be used free of charge for fourteen days before the customer has to decide whether he wants to buy the software.

Interface with telematics providers

One of the most important features is the interface between that enables telematics providers to integrate individual navigation solutions in their software. External subcontractors, for example, can transfer a specific route to their navigation device using an app for a fleet management system. This makes it easier for both contracting body and subcontractor. This completely new market is now open to be conquered by apps and solutions. PTV Navigator offers a bunch of possibilities to interact with, from the simplest (geo-intents), simple API-usage (as transferring targets and remotely starting navigation or listening to events: Navigator_TMS_API_140415) up to High-end functionalities like positioning individual Navigation hints or Guided Navigation (Video Guided Navigation)

PTV Navigator is just one click away in the Google Play Store. Please test our versions PTV Navigator truck and PTV Navigator fleet for free. If you want to attach to the navigator interface, please request the information package for our telematics partners to integrate the Navigator API. If you would prefer to build your own navigation solution with PTV Navigator components, please talk to us directly!

Kind regards from Karlsruhe,

Report from the research

Cutting CO2 emissions in road traffic? eCoMove shows how it is done!

Road transport is one of the biggest sources of air pollution. Therefore, this is an important area with considerable leverage for CO2reduction and climate protection.

That is the reason why the EU Commission promotes projects which tackle this problem. The EU-funded eCoMove project consists of 31 project partners investigating the question of how to reduce travel times in cities and protect the climate by intelligently combining the latest vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure technologies.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VF8SkItJTgY]

Presentation of results at final event in Aix-La-Chapelle

The eCoMove research partners will present their results at the final event which takes place in Aachen (Aix-La-Chapelle) on 20 and 21 November. Demonstrations in vehicles and other devices as well as presentations provide plenty of information for drivers and traffic managers on how to improve journey time and protect the environment.

PTV Group – the intermediary between technology and people

PTV Group is involved in different knowledge areas that are part of the project. Its team of transportation experts uses appropriate standards and languages in order to transmit traffic forecasts, route recommendations and traffic information to signal control systems, traffic centres and vehicles, enabling traffic management and logistics centres to manage traffic in an eco-friendly and efficient way. If you want to learn more about our involvement in the project, visit the final event.
