Oxnard Hyundai Confirms, Hyundai Will Introduce Green Routing Navigation
March 7, 2011- OXNARD, Calif.- Oxnard Hyundai is proud to confirm, NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of maps, traffic and location data enabling navigation, location-based services and mobile advertising around the world, has been chosen by Hyundai to provide advanced content for its new navigation platform.
Hyundai developed the new software using NAVTEQ’s digital map data with additional ADAS attributes such as slopes, height and curvature which enable the routing calculations to take into account more precise road geometry and the nature of the terrain. This has been coupled with NAVTEQ Traffic Patterns™, which predicts where and when traffic jams will happen based on when they typically occur - so drivers can be guided via alternative routes where traffic flows more smoothly. Together the attributes enable the navigation system to find routes that minimize fuel consumption.
“It is rare for this type of ’green routing’ option to be available in vehicles, but Hyundai is looking for new opportunities to encourage responsible driving and lowers CO2 emissions,” said Charles Shaw, General Manager of Oxnard Hyundai.
According to a 2010 NAVTEQ test results that compared the ’fastest route’ and ’greenest route’ calculations in several city and urban scenarios ranging from Paris to Frankfurt, New York and Chicago showed that when using the ’greenest route’, there was at least a 6% fuel saving per trip and often more.
The new navigation platform will feature a green routing option as well as the traditional ’shortest’ or ’fastest’ routes. Being showcased on the new Hyundai Veloster, which is being launched at the Geneva Motor Show. The system will also be demonstrated at the NAVTEQ stand.
