New York, NY (PRWEB) May 08, 2015
World Patent Marketing, a vertically integrated manufacturer and distributor of patented products, announces the EasyNav, a navigation patent that aims to make vehicle navigation easy and intuitive with its voice-activated system.
"The trucking industry collects $650 billion in annual revenue which is 5% of America's GDP and is expected to grow at 21% over the next 10 years.," says Scott J. Cooper, CEO and Creative Director of World Patent Marketing. "There are 3 million class 8 or 18 wheeler trucks registered in the United States alone. The opportunity is limitless for innovation in this sector."
“This navigation patent will render old forms of vehicle navigation obsolete,” says Cattya Bella, Director of Product Development for World Patent Marketing. “This invention is years ahead of its time and could possibly bring industry giants who claim to have the latest advancements down on their knees.”
Vehicle navigation technology is a very big deal. Even the industry giant, Apple, has patented a better way of giving map directions. Old systems will display a prompt to turn left or right after a set amount of distance. Slightly newer ones will have audio output and a more detailed response. However, it is far from being conversational. Apple's new patent aims to make GPS navigation more natural by responding with landmarks and points of interests instead of time and distance. For instance, the system will say “turn left at so-and-so” instead of “turn left in 800 meters.”
The EasyNav is built on a similar idea but takes it to a different level. This navigation patent allows users to easily input beginning and end coordinates without touching the device. More-so, if you only have a particular place in mind but not an exact location, the system will predict what it is you are looking for and display all relevant choices for you to decide. This removes the time wherein the user has to search for locations separately and manually input the coordinates.
“This navigation patent changes how drivers use GPS tracking and location searching tools,” says inventor Inderjit K. “When using the old systems to look for something, you are generally given the nearest location. However, the nearest location may not have the shortest route due to various one-ways, gates, and road hindrances. It is important for a navigation system to be able to think for itself so that it will give you the best answer to your question.”
Jorge Hickman, a car blogger and tech enthusiast, has this to say about the EasyNav: “Traditionally, a person would have to manually set the coordinates of where they want to go and where they came from. However, if they don’t have a specific destination to go to but have something in mind, most systems will be at a loss on how to help them. EasyNav will listen to the user’s speech and predict a location based on their preferences.”
EasyNav is a single platform that can be used to anyone's benefit who uses GPS navigation systems. World Patent Marketing hopes that this navigation patent will be adapted by vehicle manufacturers and tech companies that capitalize on location navigation and tracking.
