Recently, BMW, Alpine and navinfo mobile dvr improvement through ongoing consultation, research and development, as well as a few years, the world's first use of NDS format standard data products for passenger cars new BMW 7-series appeared in the NDS (Navigation Data Standard Association, known as NDS, navigation data standards Association) first Asian Conference, attend the Asia Conference attendees are personally experiencing the NDS products of superior performance, Navinfo first joined NDS China enterprises Association in hosting the meeting.
What is NDS? NDS what are the functions of the Association?
NDS is a navigation map standard data format specifications, since 2006, Europe and a number of major auto makers to car and other navigation devices in the data format requirements of the new hope can unify all data formats in the car as well as the different navigation products, develop a standard data format specifications in order to meet the needs of data-producing, compiling, and updating. NDS standard format of introduced, for navigation map data and navigation system software provides a unified and standard of interface, makes navigation map production manufacturers more focused map of accuracy, real-time sexual, navigation map of basic elements, not needs again for maintenance different models different version of data compiled spent huge of resources, and navigation system integrated manufacturers also to based on Standardization of data model and format for software development.
According to understanding, NDS Association is 2006 by BMW, and mass, and Daimler, and c, sent, and better out, and HA Mann Baker, and Bosch, and NAVTEQ, and TeleAtlas, and navinfo, Europe and Asia main car manufacturers, and system commercial and data commercial for led established of, aimed at through multiple of common efforts, developed new of for car manufacturer, and system suppliers and map suppliers future development of standard navigation electronic map data format (NDS) specifications, to improve navigation map using efficiency, Reduce cost, promote the popularity of navigation products. After NDS many members (BMW, Alpine and navinfo) years continuous consultations, research and development, as well as improvements in September 2012, the first automotive product of the Assembly is NDS standard data format, that is the world's first use of NDS format standard data products come out of passenger cars new BMW 7-series. It is understood that at present Europe's large car manufacturers, such as BMW have made it clear that, and hoped that in future the global new product using NDS as a navigation data in a standard format, with appropriate projects to be launched.
NDS navigation electronic map plug in "invisible wings"
Currently car navigation system of production, map data is a logic very independent of module, but in standardization area and international peer exists gap,car dvr
currently most manufacturers are using has KIWI data format, the big car navigation production manufacturers to in based on KIWI format Shang achieved differences of of navigation features, on KIWI do has their of qualified and extended, so for next-generation of navigation data physical storage format of application needs very urgent, NDS navigation data formats supported by the major automotive manufacturers the most competitors to become the next generation of navigation data standard.
Navinfo President, Dr Sun Yuguo
Navinfo President of NDS meeting in Asia, Dr Sun Yuguo said, standards of navigation electronic map is pressing challenges around the world, seriously increasing the depots, system operators, the cost of data. In 2001, navinfo takes the lead in China to launch the first car navigation electronic map. With the rapid development of China's automobile industry, navigate the rapid development of the market, but specifications of navigation electronic map increased faster than car sales, which brings significant cost and efficiency issues. How advanced, whether technical, standards acceptable to the market, become important issues in China. Navinfo as China's leading navigation maps, dynamic traffic information and vehicle information service provider, is the first to join members of the NDS. Navinfo's active participation in the Association of NDS, promoting the practical application of NDS standards. Currently, navinfo has 90 people NDS related work in Europe and China. Development navigation digital map products or provide NDS NDS compile services. Under the support of BMW, it is worth mentioning that, close collaboration navinfo and Alpine, after 4 years of development cooperation, not only the success of BMW NBT data compilation work on the project, and created a suite of NDS data products can provide commercial application compilation tools, NDS for BMW NBT projects navigation maps, this is the first NDS on the international standardization of products. Not only meets the demanding international clients such as BMW navigation map product requirements, passed the global evaluation of the BMW, more commercial applications based on NDS format data in the future to provide a strong background supporting.
NDS European "goalkeeper" Asian "rising star"
In September 2012 NDS "join hands to open up new horizons in Asia" at the first Asian meeting, NDS Association President Dr.Schwab information on the origin and development of the NDS progress, NDS, NDS status and related projects future Outlook, and so on. He said as NDS Association organized the first large conference in Asia, hopes that through the meeting expanded NDS influence in Asia, to attract more enterprises to join the Association, Asia's synchronized navigation map data and international standards.
NDS Association is an organization for standardization has an important influence and good development prospects, navinfo hosting the first Asian meeting, illustrates the important role of Chinese companies in which, China car navigation products play an increasingly important role in the international market. At present, the informatization development of the hot and difficult points in China, the fastest growing and largest markets in China. The NDS for the first session of the Conference held in Asia, to promote the standard NDS vehicle dvrapplication in China and other Asian markets has profound significance.
