French carmaker Renault will integrate the Tourism Radio guide in R-Link tablet in its new range of cars.
According to Tourism Radio, the R-link application plays general audio information about the area the Renault vehicle is driving through, as well as information about specific points of interest nearby.
R-Link is “tactile, integrated and connected tablet” that is available for their new brand of cars. The tablet gives various information to drivers and with the inclusion of Tourism Radio, it will have audio tours. The R-Link has navigation services, media player and phone services.
“The uniqueness of Tourism Radio’s technology is in its ability to seamlessly arrange thousands of audio clips and organise them into a coherent dialogue, based on location, creating a tailor-made user experience for each vehicle,” the company said.
Mark Allewell, Chief Executive Officer of Tourism Radio, said: “Renault has always been at the forefront of automotive technology, and I believe that the R-Link is quite simply the next evolutionary step of the motor vehicle. Tourism Radio is the perfect addition to the R-Link, and it also fits in with the theme of Le Web 2012, the Internet of Things.”
The application will initially be in three – English, French and German – with plans to roll out in other major areas in Europe.
The showcase of the application will happen on December 4 to 6 during the Le Web 2012, a major blogging and Web expo in Paris, France.
