The following solution demonstrations by NAVTEQ customers will be delivered over the course of the show in NAVTEQ booth 752:
Descartes is showcasing the Descartes Route Planner(TM) on-demand, which provides an easy and affordable way to plan, optimize and dispatch routes. This robust solution drives out operational inefficiencies, ultimately cutting costs and improving customer service.
ESRI is demonstrating the latest capabilities in planning, route optimization and extending these capabilities to the truck with connected navigation.
Mobium(TM) GPS by GeoMicro is a navigation and GPS tracking solution for the enterprise. It enables centralized deployment and management, has a small memory footprint and complete APIs for easy integration and customization to meet enterprise requirements.
Maptuit's NaviGo(TM) provides in-cab navigation for commercial vehicles. Maptuit's newest in-cab navigation companion features a large moving map format and a simple to use touch screen interface that lets drivers rive their trucks to their final destination while avoiding dead-end streets, U-turns and truck restrictions.
Teletrac's Fleet Director(R) showcases live vehicle location data, multiple map views, landmarks, geo fencing, two-way messaging, turn-by-turn navigation/route guidance and Hours of Service reporting. The demonstration will highlight FleetDirector's ease of use, intuitive interface, and overall high performance in a dispatch environment.
TeleType is featuring portable, touch screen navigation devices specifically designed for commercial truck drivers. These GPS solutions provide routes that are suitable for truck trace; however, the commercial driver can also rely on the routing as it takes into account commercial truck restrictions. The system can also be configured to support Hazmat specific routing.
