Speeding telematics development.
Encirq has recently released a Telematics Edition of its framework software aimed at reducing the cost and complexity of creating advanced telematics applications. It comes with the most commonly used telematics data constructs like address books and event tables pre-built, pre-tested, and ready to drop into an application. Smolucha says using this plug-and-play method can drastically reduce development schedules and costs. He cites the use of Encirq by Delphi Corp. (Troy, MI; www.delphi.com) in developing its latest satellite navigation system with real-time traffic reports as a prime example. The project cut software development costs by 82%; reduced software maintenance costs by 91%; increased new functionality by 34%, while using the existing amount of onboard memory, and halved the concept to production development period.--KEW
