Car Navigation

Navigation Systems Evolving as ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) Information Terminals

Since its initial appearance, new technologies have been continually added to car navigation, which is now firmly established in Japan as the most popular form of in-vehicle information terminal. And the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) navigation systems that have a growing presence in the market are becoming increasingly sophisticated, equipped with various media capabilities such as DVD, CD, MD, Memory Stick® and so on. To make such multimedia equipment easy for anybody to use, Clarion has incorporated into its navigation systems a large 7-inch monitor, voice recognition and touch panels, based on its unique Human Machine Interface concept. In addition, OEM products supplied to car manufacturers are capable of displaying various kinds of information regarding the vehicle itself.

Clarion’s 2005 lineup of car navigation products includes models that not only offer improved fundamental navigation performance such as higher accuracy for own-vehicle positioning, but also are rich in audio-visual features. With built-in 5.1ch Surround Processor, Dual-Zone function to let front seat and rear seat passengers enjoy different audio-visual sources, and Music Catcher® which allows CD music to be recorded directly to hard disk, we succeeded in further improving functionality. And with our integrated AV-HDD (Hard Disk Drive) navigation systems, we were the first in the industry to offer iPod® control via touch panel operation, effectively differentiating our products from the competition.

Car navigation systems continue to evolve at a rapid pace. As the trend toward Telematics advances, these systems will increasingly act as processing terminals for ITS information, enabling drivers to obtain real-time driving information using two-way wireless communication functions via DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communication)* or Bluetooth™. Further performance enhancements are expected as the car navigation market expands.
