NEC Magnus Announces New Search Technology

Jul 21, 2006

NEC Magnus Communications has developed 3D spatial search technology for cell phones in collaboration with NETDIMENSION, CAD Center, Asia Air Survey, Asahi Kasei Microsystems, and CyberMap Japan. The mobile solution enables users to access information on facilities, ranging from restaurants and accommodations to train stations and hospitals, by pointing at objects appearing in 3D maps on a handset display. Maps are updated along with geographical information obtained from global positioning and electronic compass systems. The NEC subsidiary expects this solution to be used in m-commerce and sightseeing services.
