LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumer Electronics Show -- iBiquity Digital Corporation, the developer of digital HD Radio Technology for AM and FM audio and data broadcasting, today announced expanded support for HD Radio Technology from a wide array of leading automakers. There are now 29 automotive brands that currently offer or have announced plans to offer HD Radio audio, traffic or data features. Now that most automakers have launched HD Radio Technology for the digital AM & FM audio features, many OEMs, including Toyota, Lexus and Mitsubishi are planning to use the digital broadcasts to receive traffic and data information as well.
The initial rollout of HD Radio Technology with its original features (Digital Sound Quality, HD2/HD3 Channels, and (PSD) Program Service Data) is now firmly established, and many automakers are now focused on launching HD Radio Advanced Features like iTunes Tagging, Artist Experience and Digital Traffic and Data. iTunes® Tagging popularity has increased significantly, as over 20 automotive brands have launched or will offer the feature in upcoming months. Artist Experience, which brings visuals like album cover art to radio screens, is off to an impressive start. VW, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and BMW are the first to offer the feature, and many additional automakers, including Lexus and Toyota, have radios in development with plans to offer the feature in the coming months. Car manufacturers are also focusing on the new Digital Traffic and Data services offered through HD Radio broadcasts. Toyota, Lexus and Mitsubishi became the first automakers to announce the integration of HD Radio Technology to receive both audio and digital traffic services. The future is bright for Digital Traffic and Data, as more well known automakers will announce their support for these new features and services in the coming months.
Two service providers, Clear Channel and Nokia, have built nationwide networks to broadcast real-time traffic and data information using the HD Radio system. Nokia has partnered with a group of radio station companies called the Broadcaster Traffic Consortium (BTC), while Clear Channel uses its own radio stations to support their Total Traffic Network.
"We are very pleased with the continued rapid roll out of HD Radio Technology in cars as we head into 2013. Seven additional automakers have added HD Radio receivers to dozens of new vehicle models in the last year and Toyota, Lexus and Mitsubishi have announced plans to be the first car manufacturers to use the HD Radio system to bring subscription-free real-time digital traffic information to their drivers," said Bob Struble, iBiquity Digital President and CEO. "We are excited about the future, as more automakers will soon announce added or expanded HD Radio advanced audio, traffic and data features."
Several carmakers are expanding their commitment to the digital dashboard by including HD Radio Technology: Acura, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, GMC, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Ram, Rolls Royce, Scion, SRT (Chrysler), Subaru, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo have all extended their commitments to the technology with new announcements, a mix of new vehicle launches, broader application, new services and standardization.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
