Comtech to demonstrate how its mapping data is integrated with Dragon
Drive’s newest innovations for in-car assistants with advanced
MELVILLE, N.Y. & BARCELONA, Spain –
February 26, 2019– Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq: CMTL), a
world leader in secure and highly reliable location, navigation and
communication technology, today announced during Mobile World Congress
2019, its Enterprise Technologies group, which is part of Comtech’s
Commercial Solutions segment is showcasing how its global navigation and
mapping solution has been integrated into the newest
innovation from Nuance Communication’s Dragon Drive mobility
assistant platform – the world’s first multi-sensorial, cognitive
mobility assistant for the digital car of the future. The demonstration
is taking place at Comtech’s stand at the Fira Gran Via in hall 8.1,
#8.1D21, February 25th through February 28th.
Comtech’s global navigation and mapping solution is built upon a
highly-reliable data center infrastructure, providing on-board and
off-board map data as well as turn-by-turn navigation. Comtech’s
navigation and map data can be integrated with Dragon Drive’s voice, eye
tracking and head movement recognition, creating a highly intelligent
and personalized navigation experience. The demonstration will feature
an enhanced navigation user experience that offers handsfree map, search
and navigation features. Additionally, it will show map controls and the
ability to zoom in and out, search for a point-of-interest (POI) or
navigate to a destination without the touch of a button.
Utilizing Comtech’s POI search function to locate nearby coffee shops,
gas stations, restaurants or other places, Dragon Drive can use that
data to differentiate between proximity, price and quality measures for
locations of interest that might be in route during a trip. For
instance, when locating a parking lot near an address identified by the
driver, the in-car assistant can identify the user’s preference for
price versus distance from the desired address. It can then use those
details to pinpoint the location of the best parking space option.
