Waze Launches First Hands-Free Traffic Reporting for iPhone; Sets New Standard for Mobile Commuting

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012

Waze, the now 12 million-strong community of traffic resisters, is announcing today the next breakthrough in the global fight against traffic: hands-free operation of its popular iPhone app. With the simple wave of a hand, drivers can now speak to navigate, report traffic, and alert others to potentially hazardous incidents on the road. With the launch, Waze hopes to set a hands-free standard for the future of the traffic-reporting industry, as well as any driver-focused products to come.

How it Works

Unlike other touch-activated speech recognition systems, the latest version of Waze uses the iPhones native proximity sensor to initiate voice control. When activated with a wave past the screen, Waze prompts the driver to speak the intended commands, without ever having to touch the phone or its screen. For example a spoken command of report traffic will prompt the driver to specify heavy, moderate, or standstill. Waze will then place that alert on the map, offering a drivers the ability to share details normally reserved for users in passenger mode. The new feature also understands destination-related commands such as drive home or drive to work, so drivers can continue to focus on the road rather than the screen.

A Completely Hands-Free Experience

In addition to Wazes new hands-free traffic reporting, Waze enhances the experience by allowing the use of Apples native Siri speech recognition for specific addresses as well as local search queries. To further ensure minimum driver distraction, Waze also disables text input into the app while the car is in motion. The result is a completely hands-free navigation experience for Waze drivers from start to finish.

Waze has found a touch-free means for drivers to safely interact with their traffic information while driving, said Roger C. Lanctot, Associate Director of Strategy Analytics Global Automotive Practice. With a swipe of the hand drivers will now be able to access the information they need and report on incidents they see. The implications for crowd sourced traffic information are significant.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) April 13, 2012

e-Builder, the number one provider of integrated capital program and project management software to colleges and universities, announced today that The University of Pennsylvania, a top 5 College rated by US News & World Report, has launched e-Builder Enterprise as its capital project management system to track capital project costs and schedule milestones. The University will implement nearly all e-Builder modules, including Cost, Processes, Documents, and Schedule, to manage its ongoing multi-million capital program.

The Universitys Facilities and Real Estate Services team conducted a thorough review and selection process to replace their previous solution for a user-friendly platform that is also easier to configure. In addition, e-Builder brings robust cost tracking, forecasting, and reporting capabilities. One of the requirements defined in the initial RFP was that the chosen system be able to integrate with the Universitys financials system. This integration will allow for seamless data exchange to eliminate inefficiencies related to duplicate data entry, and to ensure costs are accounted for in the most efficient manner.

The Penn Facilities and Real Estate Services team has standardized all of their existing workflow approval using e-Builders Processes Module, a sophisticated workflow automation engine. Some of the key processes enabled in this go-live include Project Initiation, Capital Project Request, Budget & Certification Approvals, Change Orders, Contingency Changes, and Payment Application & Invoice Approvals.

Jon Antevy, e-Builder CEO, said the leadership provided by the University coupled with the experience of our in-house implementation team resulted in yet another successful and timely launch of e-Builder.
