MapmyIndia Maps and Move app empowering citizens to report specific/hyperlocal issues to relevant authorities for speedy action/redressal

MapmyIndia Move app & maps.mapmyindia.com are empowering citizens to help authorities (PMO India, local governments, police etc.) know about public grievances (e.g.non-allowance of essential supplies) and lapses in enforcement. This can be easily done on the MapmyIndia maps – citizens can share/tag the relevant authorities pin-pointing the specific problem, along with its location. Authorities can immediately activate the nearest and most suitable person/resource to reach the exact spot, using MapmyIndia’s live navigation guidance, without delay. Since the authorities have specific and accurate information about the nature problem the person dispatched/deployed will be well equipped/informed to handle the situation.

“MapmyIndia is committed to Prime Minister’s appeal to the public to jointly fight the threat of coronavirus and towards the realization of his promise of uninterrupted supply of essential goods and services to all corners of the country. In these difficult times every bit, even the smallest action taken in the right direction, counts. With MapmyIndia Maps and the Move app we are enabling the citizens to help authorities. Our objective is to facilitate better governance through better coordination/cooperation amongst citizens and authorities,“ says Rohan Verma, CEO & Executive Director MapmyIndia.

With limited resources and many constraints, the government authorities are still doing their best to maintain calm and keep Indians safe and sound. Using resources like the Move app and MapmyIndia maps we all can act as force multipliers for the authorities. Just by tagging and guiding them to the exact area of occurrence, we are not only saving wastage of precious resources but also enhancing their efficiency. In a way, we are actually helping ourselves. And it is very simple (Video link: httpss://youtu.be/1Wwf6csbklk):

Click “Report an Issue“ on Move App – actively help the government and local authorities by reporting issues around you, like lapses in law enforcement, non-allowance of delivery of essentials

“Share“ the Live Dashboard (maps.mapmyindia.com/corona) – while you can find help through the dashboard, you can also play a part by sharing it with family & friends across popular social media platforms e.g. Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram & Twitter.

MapmyIndia Maps and the Move app are already helping citizens to view, locate & reach nearby coronavirus testing labs, Isolation and treatment facilities – both government and non-government, adding new ones as they are notified. Users can see and add their own photos & reviews about these places, in terms of amenities/hygiene, etc., helping other users with critical & updated information on the condition of each facility, by using MapmyIndia resources.:

Follow “maps.mapmyindia.com/corona”– a live dashboard to get the latest, pan India updates on the spread & mitigation of Corona Virus viz. confirmed cases, recoveries, etc. along with the information on authorized COVID-19 facilities across India.

Search “Corona” on Maps.mapmyindia.com or Move app – To find & navigate to nearby coronavirus testing, treatment and isolation centers

Let’s fight the COVID-19 crisis together. We request you to leverage MapmyIndia’s maps & technologies and portal/app fully. Share with your loved ones and family to help them be aware and safe.

MapmyIndia unveils ‘Talking Vehicle Tech’ at Auto Expo 2020

Proud to be featured in Dailyhunt

mapmy-india-760x490

MapmyIndia invites you to witness the never before seen AutoTech that will make your car/bike talk to you intelligently to give you a safer, productive and fun driving experience!

The company is showcasing the C.A.S.E. (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electric) suite of software, hardware, and mapping products and solutions – the key enablers for a smart, location-aware, intelligent, intuitive and two-way voice-enabled (talking) transport systems at the MapmyIndia Pavilion: Hall 12, Stall N34 India Expo Mart, Greater NOIDA, during the Auto Expo 2020 (Feb 5-12).

“See, hear and learn how your vehicle and driving experience transforms from a mere utility to a far more enriching one.

Travel becomes better, smarter, safer, quicker, more efficient and a lot more fun than it ever was! To cater to the evolving needs of today’s demanding customer, MapmyIndia has reimagined and reinvented ‘Mobility & Maps’ to build our unique C.A.S.E. suite of automotive solutions powered by the INTELLIGENT DIGITAL VEHICLE TWIN and LIVE 4D DIGITAL MAP TWIN OF THE REAL WORLD.

These will convert your vehicles into intelligent travel companions. This ‘Make in India’ solution is made for the world and will enable automotive OEMs to create product differentiation and offer higher value to their customers, helping prop-up demand in these challenging times,” says Rohan Verma, CEO & ED, MapmyIndia.

By layering AI/machine learning, IoT, EV and other technologies with, MapmyIndia’s latest 4D maps – the most real-time, dynamics, hyper-local, precise, reliable time & space maps of India, the company has developed the C.A.S.E.
the suite of products and solutions with a simple yet powerful objective of MAKING YOUR CAR TALK INTELLIGENTLY.

Just like a companion whose words can make your day, the vehicle will be able to initiate a conversation with you and respond whenever needed. The vehicle, equipped with various sensors, gadgets, AI, cloud connectivity and interface with your phone (via MapmyIndia C.A.S.E. suite) will enable an experience similar to traveling with a good friend or a reliable assistant. Someone you can trust and rely on, at all times!

The location and situation-aware components of the platform, sensors could assess the mood, health, possibility
of an accident, or any other need like hunger, etc. of the passenger and suggest a solution accordingly. It can be a simple, “Hello! All set for a bright new day.” or “You don’t look so good today. Shall I book an appointment with Dr. Sinha?” or “Be careful! Pothole
ahead!”

So what makes the car ‘Talk’

MapmyIndia’s C.A.S.E. platform integrates with the vehicle. The cloud-connected software and the IoT-enabled cameras, infotainment, and EV batteries/powertrains form a bridge seamlessly linking your car, gadgets and the outside world, helping develop the kind of Intelligence that will enable your car to talk – delivering a highly personalized C.A.S.E. experience to the customer and enabling OEMs to equip their products with it. The key components of the platform include:

51Connected (& Intelligent) – This connected vehicle cockpit and cluster platform and super app offers a multi-screen,
voice-first, real companion-like interface that seamlessly the connects the customer with the vehicle – before, during and after the drive.

Behind the scenes an interplay of sensors, IoT, cloud, analytics, AI and real-world real-time mapping data holds the whole ecosystem together, generating live, real-time navigation, diagnostics, driver alerts, vehicle over-the-air updates
, etc.

Autonomous (& Safe) – MapmyIndia’s ADAS (advanced driving assistance system) & technologies deliver a safer and accident-free drive. It is not just aware of the current location, the surroundings, the path but also of any upcoming obstacle/danger, prompting the driver well in advance to take preventive action. In case of an emergency like the driver not being able to apply brakes in time, the system can communicate to the vehicle to autonomously apply brakes.

It includes Collision detection, Computer vision, Long term path planning: navigation, Short term path planning:
safe route (pothole, breaker, sharp turn ahead), During driving: Preventive ADAS (Actuate – MapmyIndia provides inputs to the actuator), V2V & V2X: automated sensor-driven/ community-driven notification to alert nearby vehicles/ riders and communication with nearby traffic lights and road signs, as well as emergency response control rooms

The vehicle is equipped with self-diagnostic capabilities. It can monitor its health, part failure, predictive maintenance and battery parameters. Thanks to diagnostics IoT your car can as well complain, “Have been due for service since a week. The performance is going down. Gotta visit XYZ Motors this coming Sunday?”

Shared (& Economical) – Shared mobility or ‘Mobility as a service’ makes sense – cost effective, energy-efficient, environment-friendly, etc. – and it is inevitable. The next wave of growth in the automotive segment may not come from retail sales, but from fleet sales.

Changing mindsets will force automakers to adapt and modify their product offerings. Millennials view mobility/travel as a service and are not bothered with asset/vehicle ownership.

This is a great opportunity for app-based taxi-hailing/bus shuttle services, travel solutions providers, etc. But this may lead traditional OEMs into the trap of commoditisation.

They need to adopt new technologies (this comes naturally to
tech-first companies) to create credible service differentiation. The offering should be high on experience, as efficiency, speed and accuracy would be hygiene. Just like business class travelers in an airline.

And what better way to begin, than by greeting the traveler personally as she takes her seat, “Welcome Ms. Malini! How are you feeling today? Shall
it be Mozart or would you like to finish the movie you were watching yesterday?”

Electric (& Efficient) – The future is electric and MapmyIndia is at the forefront of accelerating electrification of mobility in India, providing EV solutions including:

EV charging station locator that enables users to locate the nearest charging station with a compatible plug. Users can book a slot and also know whether it is a fast-charging point or a slow charging one that is available.

EV navigation, battery efficient routes, accurate remaining distance range andEV Spider Maps that tell you the maximum your vehicle will be able to travel with the current charge. Armed with this intelligence your vehicle will suggest the best path to be taken.

In case the destination cannot be reached by taking any of the alternate routes, then it will say, “Let’s go for recharge. The nearest compatible charging station is 2 km, and by the way, it also has a nice coffee shop. Care for a quick snack!”

Smart, Shareable EV batteries and powertrains: MapmyIndia is buildingand providing end-to-end IoT-enabled and battery range-enhancing EV battery management systems, battery packs, and powertrain hardware solutions for
fleets, end-users and OEMs, to ensure the best Make in India EV solutions are readily available at scale for EV localization demand.

“MapmyIndia is disrupting and building cutting-edge car-tech with a blend of Hardware, Software, AI, ML, BIG DATA, Analytics Engineering Technology, automotive IOT, etc. By adopting these technologies the automakers will be able
to successfully address the mismatch between the mobility market and the evolving consumer needs and expectations, vis-à-vis the vehicles, technologies, and mobility solutions they are offering currently.

The traditional OEMs could proactively counter the threat of commoditization, emanating from the entry of large mobility solution providers and tech-first mobility solutions companies.

The C.A.S.E. suite will enable them to quickly fill in the technology gap and catch up with the new-age mobility solutions providers,” adds Rohan.
