ALK Technologies Inc. has unveiled its CoPilot Truck Optimized by Qualcomm navigation solution. The solution is designed to operate on Qualcomm Inc.'s Mobile Computing Platform (MCP) 200 and 110. A fully on-board navigation solution, CoPilot Truck calculates optimal, truck-specific routes without using mobile communications and off-board computations. It also provides constant access to reliable on-board highway and street maps.
CoPilot Truck combines ALK's CoPilot Truck commercial truck GPS navigation solution, PC*MILER routing, and Qualcomm's In-Motion User Interface (IMUI) design while also providing text-to-speech functionality. The solution automatically generates voice-guided and truck-specific turn-by-turn directions. CoPilot Truck will instantly calculate a new route if a driver misses a turn or goes off his or her planned route.
CoPilot Truck uses up-to-date, street-level ALK Digital Maps of the United States and Canada, enhanced with PC*MILER truck-specific attributes and millions of points of interest, including truck services, truck stops, rest areas, and weigh stations. All of these are stored on-board the MCP200 and MCP110 devices. This driver-centric navigation solution delivers routes based on custom vehicle profiles, routing parameters, and load-specific information.
Advanced navigation features include clear two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Driver Safety guidance views with real signpost information and lane markings and detailed voice instructions using text-to-speech technology to pronounce full street names. Clearly displayed automatic alerts appear on-screen to warn the driver of upcoming potential hazards. CoPilot Truck's voice-guided navigation improves driver safety by providing "hands free" truck-legal directions.
