Airbiquity Adds INRIX And Parkopedia To Its Connected Car Content Portfolio

New Infotainment Partnerships to Provide Drivers Real-Time Traffic Updates and Parking Availability

SEATTLE, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Airbiquity Inc., a global leader in connected car services, today announced the integration of two industry leading geo-aware content providers into its Choreo™ connected car services delivery platform. With these additions, both INRIX®, a leading provider of traffic information and driver services, and Parkopedia®, the largest provider of parking information used by millions of drivers per month, are available to Airbiquity's automotive OEM customers deploying the Driver Experience infotainment delivery offering. Leveraging the Airbiquity content portfolio, automotive OEMs can now easily configure both INRIX traffic and Parkopedia parking information into their branded connected car programs helping to differentiate their in-vehicle experience from competitors.

The INRIX XD™ Traffic app provides drivers with up-to-the-minute insight into traffic speeds and travel times for every major road type and class from highways, ramps, and interchanges to arterials, city streets, and other secondary roads worldwide. The app helps drivers know the fastest route, best departure time, and expected arrival time in traffic to any destination.  The app also alerts drivers to accidents, construction, road closures, and other traffic-causing delays to expect along the way.

"Through the connected car, we have a unique opportunity to provide every driver on every street with up-to-the-minute insight into what's happening on the road ahead," said Jon Maron, Vice President of Marketing and Mobile, INRIX. "Getting real-time insight to every driver is critical if we're to address the individual, economic, and environmental costs of congestion. Through the integration of our INRIX XD Traffic app into Airbiquity's Choreo platform, we look forward to extending the benefits of our real-time traffic information to more drivers." 

Parkopedia provides detailed information on over 30 million parking spaces in 45 countries, including parking lots, street parking, and private driveways accessed through online, SMS, mobile apps, in-car satellite, and navigational devices. In addition to providing extensive static information about parking lots, Parkopedia also provides real-time space availability information where available.

"By taking advantage of Parkopedia's real-time space availability information drivers can go directly to an open parking spot instead of spending time circling the block searching," said Eugene Tsyrklevich, CEO of Parkopedia. "In the era of the connected car, it is encouraging to see Airbiquity recognizes the importance and relevance of this type of information, and values its inclusion in their Driver Experience offering and content portfolio."

Airbiquity's Choreo connected car services delivery platform serves over 4 million vehicles around the world and supports hundreds of millions of vehicle transactions per month for leading automotive OEMs.  Driver Experience, Airbiquity's latest product offering, was announced in 2013 and began providing infotainment delivery for Nissan Motor Corporation® Altima and Rogue models in North America. Since that time Airbiquity's Nissan deployment has gone global and now encompasses nine models: Altima, Frontier, Juke, March, Rogue, Sentra, Serena, Versa, and Xterra. Airbiquity's expanding content portfolio features a wide range of content providers such as Google Send-to-Car and TripAdvisor for travel; Facebook and Twitter for social media; Pandora, Tune In, and iHeartRadio for streaming music; and more. 

"Real-time access to traffic and parking information is essential to providing our automotive OEM customers and their drivers with an intelligent and informed connected car driving experience," said David Jumpa, Chief Revenue Officer of Airbiquity. "Both INRIX and Parkopedia are recognized leaders in their categories, and their integration into Choreo further increases the breadth, depth, and relevance of our infotainment content portfolio."

Sometimes I write a blog just to formulate and organize a point of view, and I think it’s time that I pull together the bounty of excellent information about Machine Learning. This is a topic with which business leaders must become comfortable, especially tomorrow’s business leaders (tip for my next semester University of San Francisco business students!). Machine learning is a key capability that will help organizations drive optimization and monetization opportunities, and there have been some...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...

"IBM is really all in on blockchain. We take a look at sort of the history of blockchain ledger technologies. It started out with bitcoin, Ethereum, and IBM evaluated these particular blockchain technologies and found they were anonymous and permissionless and that many companies were looking for permissioned blockchain," stated René Bostic, Technical VP of the IBM Cloud Unit in North America, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Conventi...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
It’s conference season and, as you might expect, Jason and I have been on the road covering a bunch of them. It’s always great to see what the disruptive players in the market are doing — and this year did not disappoint. But there is one thing that repeatedly happens that just gets under my skin: transformation-washing. As Jason explained in a Forbes article over a year ago, ‘washing’ is when a vendor (or pundit) applies a buzzword loosely in an overt attempt to attach themselves to its buzz. ...
As many know, the first generation of Cloud Management Platform (CMP) solutions were designed for managing virtual infrastructure (IaaS) and traditional applications.

He expla...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...
