在AutoMobility上——它将自己作为“全球领先的自动技术大会”——微软已经宣布在公众预览版中提供一个名为Azure Location Based Services(ALBS)的新云服务。 从本质上来说,基于位置的服务通过提供与云连接的“物理资产”,来支持企业部署物联网解决方案。Redmond巨头正在调用这种方法“物联网”,并表示提供的地理位置数据将解锁连接智慧城市和其他IoT解决方案的更好方式,从而确保“授权产业转型,从制造到零售到汽车——与万物之间”。 微软坚持精简使用该服务及其隐私性的做法: 可在12月初提供的Azure Location Services为客户提供一个企业准备的位置服务,用于构建移动性、资产追踪和其他地理空间应用,通过一个仪表板、一个订阅和一个法案,提供有用的见解。Azure Location Based Services还为企业提供了来自Azure服务的隐私、数据主权、合规、规模和简单性。 当然,一些合作伙伴喜欢消费地图公司TomTom,企业地图公司Esri都强调了他们对最新Azure服务的投资。加入这两个是基于Irelandas的Cubic Telecom——在IoT和汽车工业的服务提供商领域的重要参与者——已经构建了一个概念的概念,来对充电站位置的有效性进行排名。此外,基于美国的Fathym正在利用“基于位置的服务”帮助城市、商业卡车公司和政府机构“在天气条件不安全的情况下,可视化地图和数据可视化的道路天气状况,优化其他路线。” 在这项服务的基础上也构建自己的解决方案是: ICONIQ——中国电动汽车制造商,采用ALBS进行维护和诊断 BrightBox-连接车平台的制造商 立方交通(与立方电信无关)——下一代城市智慧城市框架的创造者 Delphi-自主驾驶解决方案的制造商 Otonomo-“世界上第一个连接车辆数据市场平台”的建设者,用于获取车辆数据 Azure Location Based Services是微软在IoT领域进行的一系列投资中最新的一项,在开源AirSim项目扩展之后——测试了AI系统的安全性。更值得提及的还有Smart Cities for All Toolkit,为此微软与G3tinal and World合作启用,以及Vision Zero,与ODN(开放数据国家)的合作,旨在“减少交通伤亡”。 从服务可用性图表来看,目前看来基于位置的服务在美国西部地区和美国东部地区都有。您可以在此链接中找到更多信息。 At AutoMobility – which bills itself as the “world’s leading auto-tech conference” -, Microsoft has announced the availability in public preview of a […]
