Navigation Service Gives Drivers A Simpler Way To Maneuver The Roads
UK– What3words is partnering with leading automobile manufacturers to create a new navigation system involving a three-word address system that makes it easier for customers to get to their desired destinations.
What3words, a U.K. based company, converts coordinates into easy-to-follow, three-word addresses by dividing the globe into a 3×3-meter grid, and giving each square a unique three-word identifier. what3words aims to improve navigation processes, particularly in more remote areas, or in spaces where more traditional street addresses are not appropriate or useful.
Mercedes-Benz is incorporating what3words into its new navigation system, SatNav, in its Mercedes A-Class model. SatNat provides a much more accurate and efficient route for the driver, which ensures he or she reaches his or her destination with the least amount of direction-based delays possible.
