We think there’s big growth potential for the DON’T PANIC Electric GPS navigation system in cars, but there is also a demand for this type of system on increasingly popular electric bicycles.
(PRWEB UK) 14 September 2011
Navigation technology provider Mireo http://www.mireo.hr has unveiled it’s electric car-specific navigation system at this year’s IAA motor show in Frankfurt. DON’T PANIC Electric was developed in cooperation with a leading Indian car manufacturer and Croatian electric car manufacturer DOK-ING. DON’T PANIC Electric features real-time system monitoring and communications and a fully integrated map display that shows driving range info, battery charge level and the location of charging stations. The system can be viewed and tested in the DOK-ING Electric Car which is being currently being presented at the IAA motor show in Frankfurt.
Specially Designed for Electric Vehicles
DON’T PANIC Electric is designed to work optimally with electric vehicles. It is wired to the vehicle’s monitoring systems and consumes less power than other conventional in-car GPS navigation systems while delivering industry-leading performance.
“Our extensive experience with in-car navigation was crucial in the development of the DON’T PANIC Electric navigation system for electric cars.” says Mireo technology chief Ivica Siladić. He adds,“We’ve created a navigation system that flawlessly communicates with both the electric car and it’s driving environment. This means that drivers can feel totally secure and confident behind the wheel of their battery-powered vehicles.”
Electric Vehicles Are Not Just Cars
With an eye to the future, Mireo is developing an onboard GPS Navigation system for another type of electric vehicle that uses two wheels instead of four.
“We think there’s big growth potential for the DON’T PANIC Electric GPS navigation system in cars, but there is also a demand for this type of system on increasingly popular electric bicycles.” states CEO Leonardo Siladić and adds, “Just like drivers, electric bike riders need know where they’re going, how much power they have in their battery and where the nearest charging station is. This type of GPS Navigation integration will become a necessity for most electric bike commuters.”
DON’T PANIC Electric GPS Navigation Features
In addition to its electric vehicle-specific elements, DON’T PANIC Electric features industry-leading routing speeds and precision, a search interface that supports partial entries and typos, full local language and writing system support, a seamless map display and full touch gesture support.
Mireo specialises in the development of telematics technologies and navigation and geo-information solutions. With over a decade of experience in the navigation business, the company is looking to the future by developing electric and alternative fuel vehicle GPS navigation systems as well as its DON’T PANIC navigation app for smartphones.
