NAVTEQ has announced the availability of Motorway Junction Objects – launching first in Australia, with expansion to the United States and Europe thereafter – is a unique content offering designed around a rich set of features that can help drivers make more intuitive decisions at complex highway junctions and motorway rings.
In addition to enhancing lane guidance information, it enables navigation systems to display full 3D animation of complex junctions. By more closely matching what is outside the windshield, drivers will be better prepared to avoid last-minute maneuvers, so that they can drive with confidence and ease.
Built from key attributes and geometry of the highly accurate NAVTEQ map, Motorway Junction Objects enables situation specific 3D context, so that visualization of the approach through the entire junction can be created in real-time. This unique build approach also means that the product will be closely aligned with ongoing expansion and updates to the NAVTEQ map, and applications can seamlessly incorporate other map content to further enhance the driver experience and improve orientation. The innovative 3D representation of reality that Motorway Junction Objects enables was developed by combining NAVTEQ’s own extensive expertise in navigation with user interface insights and advanced technology.
