Wikitude Drive overlays the desired navigation route onto the camera view of the mobile device. “Wikitude Drive revolutionizes mobile navigation. Instead of using a digital map, the driver simply needs to follow a line projected onto his camera view. It all happens in real time”, said Martin Herdina, CEO of Wikitude. “In addition, Wikitude Drive proves to be a road safety milestone because the driver’s view never leaves the road.”
Besides viewing the route itself, the driver has the option of virtually adding points of interest (POIs) like hotels, restaurants and petrol stations to the display. To ensure high quality of POI and routing data Wikitude Drive works with digital map market leader Navteq. The app downloads data in real time to enable route calculation.
