Warren, MI (PRWEB) May 2, 2006
3DVU, a leading global provider of 3D digital visualization of imagery, map data and other geographic content, announces today that it was invited to showcase its 3D image map solution – Visual Map™ at the coming GM TechWorld event at the General Motors Technical Center, Warren, Mich. , May 9-11. 3DVU will join a delegation of Israeli suppliers participating in the closed door GM supplier exhibition that is aimed at GM decision makers.
It will be the first time 3DVU will showcase its 3rd generation solution capable of presenting imagery and terrain elevation in 3D perspective in car navigation systems. On display, 3DVU will demonstrate its technology on a variety of car navigation systems and operating systems with support from 3DVU’s strategic partners including Denso, Daewoo Precision, Intel, Freescale, Renesas, QNX, and Wind River.
3DVU’s patented technology is hardware and operating system independent that can be ported to perform on a variety of limited computing devices. The car navigation systems on display at GM TechWorld will include processors from Intel, Freescale and Renesas and operating systems from Microsoft, QNX and Wind River.
“We at 3DVU believe that our Visual Map™ technology addresses an inevitable and unavoidable trend in navigation - from 2D vector maps to 3D image maps. It addresses both the market’s competitive nature and consumer demand for more intuitive and real visualization, similar to the move from black and white to color television” said Isaac Levanon 3DVU chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
3DVU was established in the year 2000 to revolutionize the way in which we view, navigate and interact with our world. 3DVU has developed a unique and patented technology that streams imagery and elevation and presents it in a 3D perspective on any digital device, anywhere in the world.
This technology presents the most realistic navigation aid available on any digital device enabling in-car navigation systems, PDAs, PNDs, mobile handsets and PCs to display realistic, 3D virtual worlds. Using Visual Map™, satellite and aerial imagery, terrain elevation, mapping data - such as points of interest and route information - this information can now be streamed over limited-bandwidth communications with realistic 3D views and smooth maneuverability.
3DVU is changing the face of mapping by providing the freedom to look at the world in a more realistic manner. The company is strategically partnered with carmakers; navigation systems, mobile devices and handset developers; major satellite and aerial imagery-sensing entities; and mapping and GIS data providers.
