Autonavi Space-Time Map: Linking Everything About Travel

Recently, the Verge, a well-known foreign technology media, launched an interesting survey to ask people how many apps they have installed on their mobile phones.

Most people’s answers ranged from dozens to hundreds, but there was an extreme "cultivator" in the answer, claiming that he did not install a third-party APP, and that communication, payment, and email were all using the APP that came with the mobile phone.
This conclusion sounds incredible, but it may not be nonsense.
After all, GMS and iOS bring-your-own services are really manageable for many foreigners without the bells and whistles; and their daily use of smartphones is far less "far ahead" than ours.
Without installing a third-party APP, it would definitely not work in China, and a WeChat could not be bypassed. However, from another perspective, a WeChat could be everything for many people, capable of covering almost all their needs… Even Douyin, who was at the height of the sun, could use WeChat Channels to replace it.
Especially with the Mini Program, a universal system, if you don’t consider the experience and/or some heavy vertical requirements (such as 3A game masterpieces), you can really live with WeChat in China.
Therefore, it has been said for a long time that WeChat is not an application, but an operating system.

But there is one type of service that WeChat has yet to handle.

On WeChat, you can still know where you are or where you want to go in various ways, because WeChat can call the map through the interface; but if you decide to leave, the above picture will appear, which cannot be avoided.
Navigation may be the most special kind of app, because it must be strongly related to time and space: where you are, where you go, and how you get there. The core variable is "positioning", and WeChat can be used even if the positioning is turned off; but without answering the above three questions, navigation has no meaning.
This may also be the core reason why Autonavi claims that the latest version is a "space-time map".
WeChat or most other applications essentially consume information and content services, and a lot of computing takes place before consumption. In order to get the best results, users will only see whether the results are good or not (such as whether the searched articles are good or not, and whether the recommended products meet the needs). Of course, people who use Autonavi also value the results. Navigation to the destination and destination-based services are the core, but they also value the process – they are all driving home, driving all the way and detouring because of traffic jams. Half a life is obviously much worse.
Due to this, Autonavi’s location perception and calculation not only occurs in front of the line, but also in the line (traffic conditions change rapidly). It needs to directly or indirectly "locate" to link everything related to travel in real space in real time: traffic lights, intersections, tunnels/viaducts, congestion conditions, lanes, obstacles, and even the shadow area of trees and buildings; in addition to space, it also needs to compare historical data across time to obtain future trend predictions, and timely prompt or guide users.
To perform this kind of real-time, large-scale computing requires extremely strong information links and underlying technical capabilities, which is why Autonavi must essentially be a technology company.

It can be said that Autonavi is essentially an enterprise based on the "space-time interconnection", and it was not until the latest release of v13 that the name "space-time map" was implemented, perhaps because the ability to perceive and calculate on a large scale has reached a qualitative change node.

The newly released Wonderland MAX, a neural rendering technology based on deep neural networks and physics engines, helps users get a bird’s-eye view of the scene stereo model from multiple time periods and directions, so as to feel the immersive "sense of place" across time and space, and even further understand the more detailed introduction and consumption information of the destination, which is to give users better travel results.

There are also blind spot meeting warnings based on the Beidou system, Beidou lane-level navigation 2.0, tunnel navigation, elevated navigation, and parking space navigation for special travel scenarios, as well as along-the-way search services, all of which are connected to more physical details and elements in the real world, continuously carry out real-time large-scale interactive computing, and deduce the optimal travel solution at the time and space level, essentially for a better travel process.
The results and process are both great, and naturally more people will be willing to use Autonavi.
People are nothing more than two states, either staying in the same place or on the road.

WeChat is undoubtedly a very powerful application, almost representing the ultimate form of static consumption of information and content. A person with a mobile phone and a WeChat, finding a place to sit, is enough to satisfy most of your imagination of the mobile Internet.
"I can do this all day."
But WeChat doesn’t do it all. Because people are in different states when using Autonavi, the current time-space transfer is another dynamic dimension of the ability: find a good place that suits you best, and then escort you to navigate in the most time-saving and labor-saving way.
Staying is important, but there are many good things when you go out.
