HAITEC and ITRI Awarded With World Champion and Taiwan Winner in Galileo Pro 2012

HSINCHU, TAIWAN -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- "European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) 2012" announced today that the team formed by Taiwan's HAITEC and ITRI with their entry of D.S.R.C (Driving with Safety, Responsiveness, and Courtesy) has won the Grand Prize for the Prototyping Competition which was organized by Taiwan and the global champion "Galileo Pro" of the ESNC 2012 as well.

The ESNC has been held by the European Union since 2004, and the overall champion is selected from 24 regional contest and special prize winning teams. In 2012, a total of 406 entries were submitted to the competition over 40 countries across the globe. Among 25 entries from all over the world submitted to Taiwan for Prototyping Competition, the HAITEC/ITRI team's D.S.R.C. is not only the winner of Taiwan region, but also presented with the title of "Galileo Pro," the world champion.

The prototyping competition organized by Taiwan, with a theme of "Connected Vehicle," required all entries to be in compliance with the Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments/Dedicated Short Range Communications (WAVE/DSRC) specifications and current global positioning technology in order to provide and demonstrate useful and innovative applications.

The D.S.R.C., the champion of all entries, has integrated automobile and communication technology. The D.S.R.C. will allow drivers to send warning or thank you signals to the surrounding vehicles just by pressing a key while the drivers are used to rely on the car honk and gestures in traditional driving communication. In addition, through component control technology inside the car, the system can use the WAVE/DSRC technology to timely emit warnings to other car drivers when the driver wants to open the car door or use high beam without causing any danger or uncomfortable feeling. The team has skillfully applied the WAVE/DSRC technology to create an intuitive brand-new driver's communication system by integrating vehicle's precise positioning and automobile component control network technologies. Compared with the traditional unidirectional communication (such as honking), this system provides a safer, more interactive, and polite driving experience.
