Launch of "Driview" - Destination guidance using live - action images

May. 16, 2012

FUJITSU TEN Limited (Headquarters in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, President and Representative Director: Takashi Shigematsu, capital: 5.3 billion yen) on May 16 commenced the App Store launch of the free iPhone application "Driview" that works with 'ECLIPSE' car navigation systems 'AVN-ZXO2i' and 'AVN-ZO2i.' Through connecting to a FUJITSU TEN car navigation system, this application can superimpose route information such as destination direction and turns on top of live-action images shot with the iPhone camera on the car navigation display, and thereby provide more user friendly guidance to the destination. You can easily download and use this application just by connecting your iPhone to your car navigation system using a 'KW-1207' or 'IPC111' cord (separate sale).

Displaying destination guidance information on live-action images - Realizing pleasant guidance coupled with car navigation-

Through combining the high functionality of in-vehicle devices and the scalability of smartphones, FUJITSU TEN in July 2011 launched the 'AVN-F01i' car navigation system in its quest for unprecedented enjoyment and convenience. At the same time, we released three applications: 'TwitDrive' (sharing of tweets), 'DocoCar' (vehicle search in parking areas) and 'Car News Reader' (audio reading of the news). In April 2012, we newly launched 'RemoTalk' for conducting audio communication on maps in our ongoing effort to provide products and services in the quest for convenience and enjoyment.
Our new application 'Driview,' which will be simultaneously launched with the ECLIPSE 2012 summer model, can be connected to the 'AVN-ZX02i' or 'AVN-Z02i' to display moving images of scenery taken by iPhone while driving on the car navigation screen. This can be utilized to provide destination guidance support or be linked with existing applications so that the iPhone camera can be used as an in-vehicle camera.
Through providing car navigation-linked services via 'Driview' and four previously released applications, FUJITSU TEN aims to help realize even more convenient and enjoyable car life.

  • Navigation guidance information can be displayed on live-action images
    Navigation guidance information such as destination and turns is displayed over frontal live-action images taken by the iPhone camera. By enabling the driver to confirm current live information and destination guidance simultaneously, this helps the driver make judgments according to traffic conditions.

  • Coupling with FUJITSU TEN car navigation-linked applications
    Tweets from 'TwitDrive' are displayed on the camera images as word balloons, thereby providing a new in-vehicle avenue of use for Twitter and increasing the enjoyment of driving. Moreover, through registering interesting Tweet locations in 'DocoCar,' you can use your iPhone to guide you right to your destination even after leaving your car.

  • Use as an in-vehicle camera
    You can use your iPhone camera to take pictures of your vehicle's rear seats. This allows you to check on conditions in the rear safely without turning your head during driving.
